The Levy Library team has been busy outside of the MSHS community this past month connecting with the professional library community around the country in a few national conferences. We wanted to share a library kudos to our fellow team members who went above and beyond to share their stories and experiences, lend their expertise, and give back to our community:
Kaci's talk, Don't Leave a Mess: Electronic Resources Succession Planning, discussed the importance of succession planning for electronic resources positions. While this is an integral part of risk management for libraries and organizations, many libraries don't do the work. Succession planning, in conjunction with organizational planning and strategic initiatives, can identify key vacancies, provide mentoring opportunities, internal promotion pathway, and assist in knowledge transfer.
You can read more about the short talk on the conference website: https://mtgsked.com/p/31403/s
Kaci was also part of programming planning committee for ER&L and lead several discussion groups as part of her volunteer efforts for conference. Thanks for giving back to our community Kaci!
The accepted poster titled, Student Engagement AND Assessment in the Virtual Library Classroom? Google Forms to the Rescue! discusses how library instructors used an interactive online form to facilitate the move from technical EndNote instruction to a conceptual session that addresses academic integrity concepts as well as introduces the EndNote software to MSHS user community.
Thanks for sharing your expertise and experiences with our community Samantha and Lily!
