While academic programs focus on conceptual understanding of
foundations, we focus on the kinds of skills that library schools
generally expect librarians to learn on-the-job, but which usually turn
out to require additional study. These workshops earn Continuing
Education Units, and are intended as professional development
activities. Workshops are taught asynchronously, so you can participate
as your own schedule allows.

Game-Based Learning in Library Instruction

Game-Based Learning in Library Instruction

Instructor: Scott Rice
Dates: September 7 to October 2, 2015
Credits: 1.5 CEUs
Price: $175

Gamification is a hot new buzzword in academic circles, but what does it
mean, and what does it mean for librarians? This four week course will
explore readings and research on the effectiveness of gaming, discuss
ways in which librarians can use gaming in their own instruction, and
survey gaming products and case studies of the use of games in
instruction. The course aims to provide practical as well as theoretical
knowledge and participants will leave the course with numerous resources
to use to implement their own gaming strategies.

Scott Rice is the E-Learning and Digital Initiatives Librarian at
Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina, where he works on
producing, promoting, and assessing e-learning, as well as emerging
technologies and other digital projects. His research interests include
e-learning, mobile applications, and educational gaming. He is the
co-editor of the book Gaming in Academic Libraries: Collections,
Marketing and Information Literacy.

This is an online class that is taught asynchronously, meaning that
participants do the work on their own time as their schedules allow. The
class does not meet together at any particular times, although the
instructor may set up optional sychronous chat sessions. Instruction
includes readings and assignments in one-week segments. Class
participation is in an online forum environment.

You can register in this course through the first week of instruction.

Business Information

Instructor: Amy Jansen
Dates: September 7 to October 2, 2015
Credits: 1.5 CEUs
Price: $175

The purpose of this course is to familiarize academic librarians who work with both Business faculty and students – including, but not limited to, Accounting, Administration/Management, Economics, Finance, Marketing, & Sports Management – with best practices for the process of finding, retrieving, organizing, evaluating, using, and distributing information both in print and electronic formats. They will learn to identify and locate major and trusted sources for business reference and information. Course participants will also learn how to assist users in conducting business research effectively using a variety of resources, depending on their institutional access, from open access and public web sources to highly specialized databases.

This course will span four weeks, organized by module, and cover the evolving role of business reference, examine monographs, content aggregators, databases, and periodicals in business fields, evaluate specialized databases that can be useful for business research, and introduce participants to intellectual property and competitive intelligence topics.

Amy Jansen is the Business & Web Experience Librarian at Sacred Heart University (SHU) in Fairfield, Connecticut. She has an MA in Women’s & Gender Studies from the University of Cincinnati and an MLIS from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Amy started out her career in LIS as a library software trainer. She was finally able to put her long standing personal interests in business and economics to use when she came to her current position. Her current professional responsibilities center on serving as a liaison to the Welch College of Business at SHU and overseeing the user or front end of their web and electronic services.

Trends in Library Automation

Trends in Library Automation

Instructor: Mandy Henk
Dates: May 4-29, 2015
Credits: 1.5 CEUs
Price: $175

http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/116-library-automation.php

The integrated library system (ILS) has undergone dramatic changes in
recent years. Transitioning one of our primary tools from a mature,
client-based system into a newly architected Software-as-a-Service
(SaaS) cloud based system, vendors are transforming how we do our daily
work. This class will give students an opportunity to step back and
reflect on what that means and where this change is leading us. We will
begin with a general historical overview of both the ILS software itself
and the market that sprang up to provide it. From there we will explore
the evolution of the software into its mature form and the consolidation
of the market over time into a few large players. We will look briefly
at what the ILS did well and what it never managed to do, before we turn
our attention to the move to the cloud and the more recent “library
services platform” style automation tools. We will carefully examine the
SaaS model of software delivery and how this model impacts our ability
to provide high levels of service to our users while maintaining privacy
and security. The class will conclude with a look at current market
offerings, including open source options.

At the end of this class students will understand:

– The role that the ILS played in library automation in the previous
century and its early evolution
– The final form of the ILS as a client based system
– How the SaaS model of software delivery works and be able to discuss
the impact this model has on library software
– What the new “library services platform” automation tools are and how
they are different from the traditional ILS
– The market as it stands now for cloud based SaaS automation tools
– What open source options are available and the pros and cons of
participating in them

Librarian Mandy Henk has been at DePauw since 2006 and was a law
