Project Outcome for Academic Libraries: Data for Impact and Improvement 

 In this interactive workshop, attendees will learn how to use the Project Outcome for Academic Libraries surveys and resources. Project Outcome is a free toolkit that helps libraries measure four key learning outcomes – knowledge, confidence, application, and awareness – across seven library program and service areas. The survey topics cover: Instruction, Events/Programs, Research, Teaching Support, Digital & Special Collections, Space, and Library Technology. Project Outcome provides academic libraries of any size the means to easily measure outcomes in those areas and to use that data as the basis for continuous improvements and advocacy.
 

1:00-3:45pm
Slow and Steady Wins the Race: Developments in Library Linked Data Implementation

In today’s digital information age, libraries must meet users where they are – on the web. Library data remains largely hidden from search engines and other services that people frequent on a daily basis, and the library linked data movement seeks to expose and integrate our rich, authoritative data into the web. The progress of implementation has been slow but steady over the past several years.  In this preconference, you will learn about the purpose and principles of linked data and what it means for all libraries. There will be several hands-on opportunities to gain a better understanding of the concepts discussed, and the presenter will also show how the principles of linked data are interwoven with our cataloging standards (e.g. RDA, BIBFRAME). The session will conclude with some of the more recent and promising examples of implementation in libraries. This workshop is a basic introduction for catalogers, metadata librarians, library school students, and other interested library staff. Participants will gain a foundation of knowledge to build from and the ability to follow and participate in future discussions about implementation. Please note: A laptop is required if you plan to participate fully in some of the exercises. If you cannot bring a laptop, we can partner you up with another attendee.

Join Minitex staff for an update on current developments and trends in the cataloging & metadata world, including technical advancements, social justice initiatives, and some inspiring collaborations.

 Scan Day @YourLibrary

Join Mary Keeling, President of AASL, to compare, contrast, and crosswalk these valuable documents. Consider how using these standards together can spark conversations with other educators to foster student-centered school libraries.

Playing at the Library- Creating a board game collection

Circulating board games gives libraries a medium to promote social interaction. Learn how to build a collection that excites your patrons, fits your budget, and doesn't overwhelm your circulation staff. 
  

You should already be circulating Video Games

This session will cover the transition from retro gaming to modern games with an emphasis on recognizable titles like Mario, Pac-Man, Sonic the Hedgehog and Minecraft, and the connection between video games and libraries. We will discuss engagement for a range of patrons, nostalgia for older patrons, and tech literacy for younger patrons, social interaction with multiplayer gaming, in person and online. This media type contains legitimate art expressions and we can remain relevant by offering curated collections to our patrons.

 

Bring the FUTURE to your library with the Oculus Go VR (Virtual Reality) Headset!

VR (Virtual Reality) in libraries allows librarians and their patrons an opportunity to explore and create best practices in promoting the use of educational VR content in the library setting. It is also part of a continuing effort to develop programs of STEM related technologies for public libraries and their communities. Coordinate your checkout with another South Dakota library or school and communicate with other patrons across the state. Use the headset in conjunction with summer reading with space apps like Mission: ISS that take a user on a trip into orbit and allows them to experience the International Space Station!

Mental Health Resources for Librarians: Improving Your Reference Skills Set

Answering health-related questions from library patrons can be challenging as well as rewarding. When the request is for mental health information, librarians will need to tap into every skill set they possess. In this session, participants will be introduced to useful National Library of Medicine products such as MedlinePlus and the Drug Information Portal and other authoritative online resources that address topics in mental health. Important aspects of the health and mental health reference interview will be discussed, and participants will be provided with support information to educate themselves on combating the stigma of mental health illness.
 

Throw Away the Training Checklist: Engage Through Onboarding

Training is essential to the success of your employees and organization. Go beyond the training checklist to implement an onboarding process that builds culture and relationships from the start.

Gain a greater understanding of effective onboarding and how it can be adapted to fit your library’s needs.
 

Fact vs Fiction: Teaching Critical Thinking in The Age of Fake News.

Fact vs. Fiction will provide educators with tools and resources to help students discern fact from fiction in the information they access not only at school, but on the devices they carry in their pockets and backpacks

In this session, we’ll walk through picking a theme, thinking about the furniture/ clutter for the room, designing clues and puzzles, and putting it all together into a great escape room! 


Open Educational Resources: Transforming Education

Universities around the world are beginning to adopt Open Educational Resources as a way to increase the affordability of education, and librarians are leading the way in OER initiatives.

Learn more about how your membership in AASL supports the profession and how you can get involved with the work of your national association. New and prospective AASL members are invited, and long-time AASL members are welcome to attend this great networking opportunity.

Biases in Online Resources

Did you know that the selective presentation of facts also creates a bias? More than "Fake News", what is chosen for publication and given priority, even when the content is completely accurate, affects people’s perceptions. This session will examine biases in online resources targeted at both K-12 and adults. It will introduce some techniques and resources to inspire people to be aware of and evaluate biases.

 

Using Google to Teach Information Literacy

Librarians at Northern State University use Google and Google Scholar to engage students in information literacy by meeting them where they're most comfortable. By using Google to teach within the ACRL Framework the librarians are able to better motivate students. The presenters will discuss the pros and cons of utilizing Google and Google Scholar for academic research. This session will also include practical applications for the classroom including teaching students about search strategies and evaluation so that they are successful in their research.
 

Bridging the gap: Library services for underserved populations

In 2018, staff at the Downtown Library of Siouxland Libraries identified projects that would create a more inclusive and welcoming environment for customers that have been traditionally underserved, including customers experiencing homelessness, adults with disabilities, and members of our Native American and immigrant communities. We will share our process for identifying needs, creating projects, and lessons learned. You will leave our session with an idea of how to do the same at your own library.

Census 2020

            Libraries will play a vital role in ensuring an accurate 2020 Census. The decennial Census is the once-a-decade population and housing count of all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Island Areas. For 2020, the Census will be conducted primarily online for the very first time. Learn how this will likely impact libraries and libraries' technology resources as staff work to assist people in participating in the Census. The 2020 Census also presents a unique opportunity for libraries to increase awareness about the importance of responding to the Census along with Census job opportunities and how the public can use various Census data. This presentation will provide a snapshot of critical dates, different ways to respond, and how libraries can support their communities in the 2020 Census.

"Here's the Scoop" - The Library Newsletter, Your Community Connection
