Thu. Session 3

Thursday, June 12th

11:15 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. – Session 3

  • The Cognitive Apprenticeship Model for Library Instruction
    • Elizabeth Tompkins, Kingsborough Community College
    • The cognitive apprentice model (CA), which links apprenticeship-learning techniques with classroom practices, offers a flexible framework for planning and implementing library sessions. Developed by Collins, Brown, and Newman (1989), CA illuminates the thought process of teachers and other experts while they deliver instruction in problem solving, close reading, critical thinking, or other higher order reasoning. My application of CA utilizes the model to break down the thought process associated with library research into components that are comprehensible to all levels of students.
  • Disciplinary Discussions: Articulating and Integrating Information Literacy Outcomes
    • Julia Furay, Kingsborough Community College, Jonathan Cope, College of Staten Island, Jesus Sanabria, Bronx Community College, and Amy Stempler, College of Staten Island
    • What does an information literate student look like by the time they graduate? The answer, of course, depends on discipline. This project is an attempt to help librarians work with teaching faculty in their own institutions to articulate discipline-specific learning outcomes for students at 120 credits. These presenters, all CUNY librarians, will discuss the theoretical backing to this concept, as well as its implementation through a series of focus group conversations with departmental faculty.
  • One Bib to Rule Them All – SUNY One Bib / Shared Catalog Project (continued)
    • Marianne Hebert, Potsdam, Maggie Horn, OLIS, Kevin McCoy, Suffolk, Nancy Poehlmann, University at Albany, and Maureen Zajkowski, OLIS
    • The Shared Catalog and Authorities Task Force has been working since Fall of 2012 to explore the feasibility of creating a merged SUNY Union Catalog. Since the Regional Meetings in Fall 2013, OLIS and Task Force Sub-groups have continued to work on several aspects of the migration with Fall 2014 being the target for the implementation of a test environment. The session will focus on progress of the One Bib Project and anticipated Fall 2014 activities such as designing and evaluating the test environment, creating campus data profiles and identifying training needs and processes. This is also an opportunity for campuses to ask questions and share concerns.
  • Capturing Historic Voices: Forging Partnerships in the Digital Age
    • Mike Magilligan, SUNY Canton
    • In this conference presentation SUNY Canton’s Digital Technologies and Learning Librarian Mike Magilligan will discuss his experience in establishing Canton’s Veterans Oral History Project. This digital archive has been the product of partnerships between the college and various community, civic, and nonprofit organizations. In this presentation Mike will discuss the planning, networking, and public relations strategies that led to the successful launch of this project. This archive has also been innovative in its value as a tool for cross collaborations with Canton’s humanities division and the presentation will address the pedagogical applications that this archive allows for.
  • Reference Resources in SUNY Libraries: Future Empire Collaborations?
    • Jane Kessler and Carol Anderson, both of University at Albany
    • As the use of print reference collections decreases, and reference collection budgets are allocated to online resources supporting reference services, we collectively need to look ahead to what the reference collection of the 21st century should look like and how SUNY libraries could enhance collaboration and sharing of online reference resources. As a starting point, the presentation will provide an overview of UAlbany’s University Library’s reference collection weeding and fund reallocation project, transitioning from print resources to enhanced access to online reference resources.
  • Discover and Learn Together: a Review of the EDS Implementation Process
    • Abby Smith, SUNY Potsdam and Kristy Lee, SUNY New Paltz
    • The presentation will walk participants through the process of setting up the EBSCO discovery service, including both technical and logistical considerations. We will review areas that are unexpectedly challenging, which elements took more time than anticipated, and the decisions involved in the early stages of implementation.
  • Promoting the Value of Special Collections: A Subject Librarians’ Approach
    • Anne Larrivee and Leslie Vega, both of Binghamton University Libraries
    • Special Collections is the hidden heart of every library. These unique collections endure against the ever-changing scope and mission of academic libraries, where fiscal pressures threaten collections toward homogeneity. Unfortunately, Special Collections – the rare books, manuscripts, and archives of a university – often go unnoticed by the general student body. During this presentation, two subject librarians will discuss a variety of approaches they have used to promote Special Collections to both students and faculty. These approaches include promotion via instruction classes, the reference desk, social media channels and library exhibitions, as well as partnering with Special Collections on projects.
