Liaison Discussion Section: Finding Music at Davis Family Library

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Topic: Finding Music at Davis Family Library
When: Wednesday, August 17, 2011, 4 – 5 pm
Where: Davis Family Library 105
Who’s Invited: All liaisons and Circulation Desk staff, and anyone who might be interested

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.

Liaison Discussion Section – Summon

Categories: Midd Blogosphere
You’re invited!  (Who?  All LIS liaisons and anyone else who might be interested.) 

Liaison Discussion Section
Thursday 5/19,  10-11 am in Lib 105
Topic: Summon, the greatest library research tool ever to be invented!  And I might not even be exaggerating.  Bryan Carson will do a quick demo, then we all can try it and share what we figure out.  It’s in Beta testing now (look for it on the library home page), but it’ll be live by the time summer school starts.
RSVP:  Liaisons have received and responded to an Outlook invite.  All others don’t need to respond.  Just come if you’re interested!

Liaison Discussion Section
Thursday 11/18,  10-11 am in Lib 145
Topic:  Support for curricular technology

We will talk about the ways in which we have provided support for curricular technology on behalf of LIS. What questions have we received about Segue, WordPress, MediaWiki, etc.? How have we answered? Have we been asked to recommend one platform over another? What was the scenario and how did we respond?

Pre-assignment:  If you’re among those in LIS who have provided support for curricular technology then please be ready to share 2 questions or challenges that you’d like to discuss.

RSVP:  Liaisons have received and responded to an Outlook invite.  All others don’t need to respond.  Just come if you’re interested!
