    This workshop will focus on how assessment can be used constructively to look at current service models, determine what is working (and what is not), and to think about how to make changes going forward. Featured speakers will be Laurie Willis and Charles Vesei from Baldwin Wallace University who will lead attendees in thinking about revamping the reference desk. Expect to leave this workshop full of ideas about using assessment towards positive and meaningful change!

    “Preserving Scrapbooks in the Archives” will present the different structures and preservation challenges of historic scrapbooks often found in archival collections. After understanding common challenges, participants will be introduced to different simple methods to assist with handling and long-term storage of these valuable and unique artifacts. Attendees are encouraged to bring scrapbooks that present preservation challenges in their own collections for discussion.


    The workshop will include hands-on work and some of the necessary materials will be supplied as part of the registration fee. Participants may also purchase an optional toolkit if needed. The day will include tours of UD’s special collections and archives spaces, lunch, and networking.

She teaches several preservation and conservation related courses in the Graduate School of Information Science at Illinois and also serves as an instructor at the International Preservation Studies Center (formerly the Campbell Center).

    Participants will learn how to engage online learners, whatever their background.  Becoming attentive to students’ concerns, challenges, and communication styles is necessary before distance librarians may introduce them to the practices of academic culture. Theories, techniques, and tools that create a positive climate for learning and research in the online classroom will be explored and demonstrated.

    TEDSIG will be co-hosting a workshop with the Collection Management (CMIG) Interest Group for Friday, June 16th at the State Library of Ohio. The workshop will focus on how work in technical services can assist and inform collection managers, and vice-versa. For example, how can the statistics kept in acquisitions and electronic resources assist collection managers in retention and cancellation decisions? How can technical services and collection managers assist each other in examining open access materials, streaming video services, and so on?


    Speakers will be Stephanie Church and Brian Gray from Case Western Reserve University; Kevin Garewal and Frank Bove from the Univesity of Akron; and Amy Pawlowski and Emily Flynn from OhioLINK.
