Circulating Unusual Items - ASCLA

Tuesday, February 7, 2017, 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM, Marston Science Library Room 136

 

There is a growing trend of adding “unusual items” to libraries’ circulating collections. Circulating cake pans, post- hole diggers, ukuleles, soil testers, bread machines and more is exciting and impactful, but challenging. This talk introduces and contextualizes the trend, discusses best practices, addresses common questions, and suggests a plan for adding unusual items to your own library. 

One thing that makes unusual items so appealing is that they are chosen by specific libraries based on the needs and interests of that specific library's specific community. In the presenter's library, ukuleles and soil testers do very well, but cake pans do poorly. In city libraries, kitchen equipment does better than at the presenter's suburban library because his patrons live in houses with more storage space than city patrons with smaller apartments. In a library with a large immigrant population, electronic translators might be successful. In a library with a low income population, WiFi hotspots might be successful.

NCompass Live: New Statistical Standard for Public Services in Archives and Special Collections

Wednesday, February 8, 2017, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM, Smathers Library Main Conference Room

 

Over the past three years, the Society of American Archivists and Association for College and Research Libraries have been teaming up to create a statistical standard to enable archival repositories and special collections libraries to assess the services they provide their users according to common definitions. This webinar will provide you with an opportunity to learn about the standard, and to provide the task force charged with its development vital feedback on the final stages of its drafting. 

Christian Dupont (Boston College), Emilie Hardman (Harvard University), and Amy Schindler (University of Nebraska at Omaha) will review the task force’s most recent draft, which has benefited from important community feedback over the past few months. The task force is currently seeking comments on version 2 of the proposed new standard for archival repositories and special collections libraries.

The objective of this program is to make clear what may have changed in the IR space over the course of the past five to ten years. Repositories may have become almost commonplace at high-profile research institutions, but what about the needs of other institution of higher educations? What might be emerging expectations for such institutional platforms? What collaborative approaches might make sense for various constituencies? To what extent is content housed in the institutional repository made discoverable?
