Last month, SAGE Publishing organized four sessions at the Electronic Resource and Libraries (ER&L) Conference in Austin, Texas that highlight important issues for librarians. Below, we posted recordings of each session so you can watch them at your leisure. Each session is packed with information from experts in the field and ranges from about 30 to 45 minutes long. So sit back, relax and enjoy!
- Marketing Your Library’s Digital Resources
Speakers: Clint Chamberlain, Dallas County Community College District and Eleonora Dubicki, Monmouth University Library
Social media, newsletters, events — librarians are constantly called on to market their collections. In this session, librarians who specialize in marketing resources walk through the outline, goals and objectives of an actionable marketing plan.
- Communicating with Faculty: Faculty Members Provide Tips for Success
Speakers: Gloria Lopez-Gonzalez, Professor of Sociology at the University of Texas at Austin and Sofian Merabet, Associate Professor and socio-cultural anthropologist at the University of Texas at Austin
Moderator: Clint Chamberlain, Dallas County Community College District
Moderated by a librarian, two faculty members who are close with their campus libraries discuss:
- How they prefer to communicate to librarians
- What library-initiated communications (ongoing and ad-hoc) they find most helpful (and the ones they do not!)
- Video Use in Higher Education: First-hand from Faculty
Speakers: Janet Salmons, Researcher, Writer, Instructor, Vision2Lead and Sean Wise, Assistant Professor, Entrepreneurship and Strategy, Ryerson University
In this session, renowned lecturers and researchers demonstrate how they incorporate video in the classroom to increase student engagement and how their students use video, including the trends, roadblocks, and successes. They also cover how they use video in their own research to augment their writing.
4. Just in Case, Just in Time: The Role of the Library in Active Learning Initiatives
Speakers: Heather Dray, Senior Library Relations Manager, SAGE Publishing and Janet Salmons, Researcher, Writer, Instructor, Vision2Lead
Faculty want students to engage in the real world to improve research and learning outcomes. What is the role of the library in providing materials for such learning? A panel of faculty and librarians explore the opportunities for libraries to provide more active, in situ research and learning.
