Liaison Discussion Section: “Let the Technology Do the Work: Sharing the Same News to Different Audiences”

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Topic: “Let the Technology Do the Work: Sharing the Same News to Different Audiences,” presented by Jess Isler, Carrie Macfarlane and Joy Pile  (This will be a repeat performance of their presentation at the October Conference at the Dartmouth Biomedical Libraries. The theme of the conference was, “If You’ve Got It, Flaunt it! Promoting Our Resources and Services.”)
Who’s Invited: All Liaisons, Web Development Workgroup members, LIS Web Team, Senior Leadership Team, and anyone who is interested
When:  Wednesday, November 30 from 2-3 pm
Where: Davis Family Library 105

We have Facebook, Twitter, blogs, a web site, and email distribution lists–there are more communication forums on our campus than we should mention here. We also have a constant stream of news and tips to share. What don’t we have? Like most other libraries, our staffing is finite. To save time and effort, we use technology to help us promote our resources across different platforms and to different audiences.

******************
“Liaison Discussion Section” meetings address topics of interest to liaisons: research and/or technology. They can be conversations, or presentations, or both. They take place most often on the 3rd week of the month, but in order to allow people who work different hours to attend, they’re sometimes scheduled for different days/times.

Liaison Discussion Section: Congressional Information Resources

When: Friday, October 28, 2011, 10-11 am
Where: Davis Family Library 105

Almost every day the federal government is in the news, and quite often the coverage is front page news that can impact our lives in many ways. This session will delve into the full range of Congressional information resources, from the earliest reports of American expeditions around the world to the latest information on Congressional “pork barrel” expenditures and how members of our Vermont Congressional delegation have voted on various issues. A future session will be devoted to information resources from various agencies within the Executive branch of the federal government.

Now that the Music Library has moved to the Davis Family Library, more of us need to know how to find music! Joy Pile will teach us the basics so that we can help researchers find our CDs, scores, and other music materials in their new locations. She’ll also show us a few reference resources, our music streaming databases and the most comprehensive digital score site.

“Liaison Discussion Section” is a revival of librarians’ “Reference Training and Review” sessions. These meetings will address topics of interest to liaisons: research and/or technology. They can be conversations, or presentations, or both. They will take place most often on the 3rd week of the month, but in order to allow people who work different hours to attend, they’ll occasionally be scheduled for different days/times.
