They will learn the unique MARC fields that should be included in bibliographic records for each format type listed. Power Point presentations will be sent to each registered participant so that they can print the slides and bring the training material with them. Participants who routinely use OCLC Connexion in their work will be connecting with their login. Participants who do not have a login will be sent blank worksheets to print out and bring to the workshop.

The workshop breakdown is:

  • Hour 1—review of RDA principles associated with describing works, expressions, manifestations and items

Inspired and Creative Collaborative Teaching with Primary Sources: From identification to Utilization

Workshop Synopsis: This workshop focuses on the creative teaching of ephemera, codices and related indigenous materials, and historical documentation.  The leaders will begin with brief overviews of each of these three broad categories, including strategies and resources for efficiently identifying collections, especially those in digitized format. The workshop will then divide into three groups, each focused on one of the three categories, in order to discuss specific types of these materials and to develop ideas for integrating them into different teaching and research settings, with special emphasis on interactive class experiences.  Leaders and participants will share successful endeavors and critiques of less successful experiences as examples, and based on these will develop several specific models for using primary sources.  During the final 20 minutes, each subgroup will present a brief synopsis of the discussions, examples, and models.

Workshop participants will receive a brief reading list as well as a list of URLs for some of the collections serving as the basis for initiating discussion in the subgroups several weeks in advance.  These URLs should be bookmarked on laptops individuals will bring to the workshop.

Attendees should gain new awareness of and familiarity with the vast range of primary sources that are increasingly available and ways librarians and faculty can effectively integrate these materials into a variety of settings that involve students with different levels of knowledge and skills.  These structures and techniques should serve as potential models for application in a variety of institutions. Although not required, attendees with particular projects in mind or underway may wish to present these briefly to the subgroup for discussion and comment.

Workshop leaders: Fernando Acosta-Rodríguez, Librarian for Latin American, Iberian and Latino Studies, Princeton University; Paula A. Covington, Latin American & Iberian Bibliographer and Senior Lecturer in Latin American Studies, Vanderbilt University; Christine Hernández, Curator of Special Collections, The Latin American Library, Tulane University; and Jennifer Osorio, Interim Head, Collections, Research and Instructional Services (CRIS) Librarian for Ethnic Studies, Latin American Studies and Spanish/Portuguese UCLA Library

Moderator: Peter T. Johnson, SALALM Treasurer

Date: Tuesday, May 23, 2017, 8:30- 10:30am

The workshop will be broken into four parts: 1. Overview of audio formats and carriers. 2. Small group case studies. 3. Discussion of case studies. 4. Overview of digital audio preservation. Attendees will learn about audio preservation and its associated principles and practices from both lecture and real world small group case studies. Additionally, they will gain an understanding of the decision points, responsibilities, and characteristics of digitized and born-digital audio. Workshop leaders will provide attendees a list of resources so that participants can delve further into issues discussed during the workshop.

Integrating the Visual: Tools for Teaching with Images, Objects, and Museums

Workshop description: Grounded in research on real-world faculty use of museum collections, this workshop will use the collection of the University of the Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) to explore strategies for teaching with museum objects and primary sources. This interactive session will present approaches that work for both one-shot and long-term projects that focus on different skill sets, regardless of learning outcomes and objectives. Attendees will have time to workshop their own ideas or projects, but do not need to have projects in mind to participate. By the end of the session, participants will be able design class sessions around museum (or special collections) objects and see new ways to build connections between academic libraries and museums. Note: No food, drink, or pens are permitted in the UMMA study rooms. Participants should come prepared with pencils and paper.

Workshop leader: Ryan Lynch, University of California, Santa Barbara

From Presentation to Article: Hands-on Academic Writing

Workshop description: The workshop will provide a practical, hands-on introduction to writing academic journal articles. Do you have a project that you have been meaning to turn into an academic article? Never written a lit review, or been stuck on the introduction for several months? This workshop, which will alternate between group brainstorming and individual writing time, will provide you with both the kick-start you need, as well as a chance to put what you learn into practice. Focusing on writing problem statements and literature reviews, the workshop centers on your work, and provides an informal and stress-free atmosphere in which to explore and develop your writing projects. Due to the hands on nature of the workshop, participants should come prepared to work on a specific project, whether you are in the planning, data collection or writing up stage. Attendees must bring a laptop, tablet, or writing pad.

Workshop leader: Alison Hicks, University of Colorado, Boulder
