Designing Academic Libraries for Modern Human Behavior
Tuesday, May 2, 2017, 2:00 - 3:00 PM, Library West Room 419

Creating contemporary academic library spaces that work with natural instincts and human behavior can sound intimidating. What are natural human behaviors? What do students seek out in spaces, and what makes them appealing to our senses? And how can we design our academic library spaces with these things in mind?

This webinar will provide a basic understanding of the natural human behaviors and instincts that drive our everyday lives, such as the desire to be in a secure environment and the need to have vision of your surroundings. Within this framework of understood natural human behaviors, Jeff and Joe will help you learn how you can design your academic library space to promote comfort and security within the details - everything from the pitch of the seat and the ability to maintain your personal bubble, to the sightlines promoted in the architecture of the building and the access to natural light and power resources matters in promoting comfort for our human instincts that trigger our internal fight or flight.

Insider's Guide to Accessing NLM Data: Welcome to E-Utilities for PubMed - National Library of Medicine
Tuesday, May 2, 2017, 1:00 - 2:00 PM, HSCL Collaboration Center Room C2-41A

Want to do more with PubMed?

Want to extract just the PubMed data you need, in the format you want?

Dreaming of creating your own PubMed tool or interface, but don't know where to start?

Join us for an introduction to the Insider's Guide, a program designed to teach you more powerful and flexible ways of accessing NLM data, starting with the essentials of the Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) for PubMed and other NCBI databases. The Insider's Guide is geared toward librarians and other information specialists who have experience using PubMed via the traditional Web interface, but now want to dig deeper. This class will start with the very basics of APIs, before showing you how to get started using the E-utilities API to search and retrieve records from PubMed. The class will also showcase some specific tools and utilities that information specialists can use to work with E-utilities, helping to prepare you for subsequent Insider's Guide classes. We will finish by looking at some practical examples of E-utilities in the real world, and hopefully inspire you to get out and put these lessons to use!

Makerspaces in Libraries: Creating Change through Active Partnerships with Communities
Wednesday, May 3, 2017, 2:00 - 3:00 PM, Marston Science Library Room 136

This webinar will discuss how libraries promote active community engagement through Makerspaces. A Makerspace is a place for community members to engage in creative making activities in a range of domains, offering access to fabrication technologies and social opportunities with other Makers. Community engagement is the key to success. Several library Makerspaces are currently practicing innovative approaches to engaging their communities. However, there seems to be a lack of consensus regarding what social responsibilities library Makerspaces must assume in today’s society. The panel proposes the following overarching questions.

Coaching Others for Sucess - NEFLIN
Tuesday, May 9, 2017, 10:00 - 11:30 AM, Library West Room 419

What comes to mind when you think of the word “coach?” It’s likely that you’ll think of words like encourage, teach, help, develop, grow, train, instruct, mentor, and advise. Whew! That’s a big job! And the reason it’s such a big job is that effective coaching is critical to “winning” – or as we say in the workplace – “success.” 

Success doesn’t just happen though, does it? It often takes someone coming alongside to coach and mentor others to give them the best chance for succeeding. 

 

Indeed, feedback through coaching is a roadmap of sorts. A good coach sees when someone is veering off-course and gives feedback to help that person get back on track. 

 

In this fast-paced 90-minute session, we’ll discuss helping others set meaningful goals and all that entails. We’ll learn why understanding obstacles, listening to their concerns, and helping them move forward is so important in helping them achieve what you both want – a job well done.

Curating Research Data - ALA
Thursday, May 18, 2017, 2:00 - 3:00 PM, Marston Library Room 136

As reproducibility and data sharing emerge as key issues for academic researchers, the research data services offered by the library must grow from consultation and guidance to hands-on data curation and service. Data curation steps—including quality assurance, file integrity checks, documentation review, metadata creation for discoverability, and file transformations into archival formats—are value-add services that enhance digital data for long-term preservation and reuse. This webinar will explore the drivers behind library data curation services and the workflows and staffing in place at several institutions leading the way. The speakers and topics represent just a few of the chapters collected in a new book titled Curating Research Data, Volume One: Practical Strategies for Your Digital Repository, also released as an open access ebook by ACRL in January 2017.
