Professional Growth and Development Opportunities

  • NISO;
  • Re-think it: Libraries for a New Age;
  • CAPAL18 (Canadian Association of Professional Academic Librarians);
  • Library Juice Academy

Wednesday, December 6, 2017, 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. 

NISO’s fee structure allows your organization to gather an unlimited number of staff in a conference or classroom setting to view the event on the day of the broadcast. Access to an archived recording of the event is always included, regardless of membership status.

In 2016, NISO announced an initiative aimed at development of best practices for documenting and understanding users’ paths between discovery of content and accessing the content. Did users come in from a discovery service, Google Scholar or some other available channel? What should that signify to service providers? What does that mean for libraries? This session will spotlight the size and scope of the issue as well as the progress that may be made towards its resolution.

Confirmed Speakers: Allison Belan, Associate Director, Digital Strategy & Systems, Duke University Press; Peter Vlahakis, Product Manager, Ithaka and Dan Paskett, Director, Shared Shelf Outreach Coordinator, Ithaka; Ken Varnum, Senior Program Manager for Discovery, Delivery, and Library Analytics, University of Michigan…”

It is time to consider the role of academic librarianship in a
changing world and the ways in which academic librarians can challenge the corporatization of our universities and libraries, institutional inequities, and the attempts to deprofessionalize academic librarians…
