18th Distance Library Services Conference

The deadline for submitting Paper Presentation proposals for the 18th Distance Library Services Conference is this Sunday, April 23!

The conference will be held April 11-13, 2018, in downtown San Antonio, TX, at the Hyatt Regency San Antonio, right off of the famed Riverwalk.

What is a Paper Presentation? The Paper Presentation format requires that you write a paper and then present at the conference. Your paper will be published in both the conference proceedings and later in special issues of the Journal of Library & Information Services in Distance Learning. Your presentation is an opportunity to share issues, findings or conclusions related to your paper.

The average attendance for the past three conferences was 273, so in addition to your paper being published in the Journal of Library & Information Services in Distance Learning, you will benefit by presenting at a smaller, focused conference with ample networking opportunities.

Proposals should fall into one of three general tracks:

Teaching & Learning (e.g. technologies, strategies, instructional design, assessment, best practices, successes/failures)

Marketing & Outreach (e.g. advocacy, assessment, collaboration, strategies)

User Experience (e.g. assessment, best practices, initiatives, student success)

If you want to share your research, projects, or ideas with others providing library services online or at a distance, you won’t find a better place to do it! Submit your Paper Presentation proposal soon!

To submit a proposal, please visit http://libguides.cmich.edu/dls2018/call_for_proposals

 

Journal of Faculty Development special section on faculty leadership

A reminder that we’re still welcoming submissions to the special section of the Journal of Faculty Development focused on faculty leadership. You’ll find the call pasted below and available online at http://newforums.com/jfd/cfps/cfp321/.

Call for Papers, January 2018 Special Section

Theme: Faculty Leadership Development

As faculty members advance in their careers, they need new skills and strategies for managing and leading complex academic initiatives. Higher education institutions provide faculty members with programs to support prospective academic leaders with the resources they need to guide colleagues, units, and committees through change.

Some leadership initiatives focus on faculty members at specific levels based on academic rank with responsibility for program coordination, curriculum development, university-wide committee leadership, or aspire to such academic roles. Other initiatives, however, focus on leadership within the academic administrative ranks (e.g., Directors, Chairs, and Deans). Program outcomes might include strengthening skills applicable in current and future academic roles and work; enhancing knowledge of academic committee and program leadership and how differences in style, strategy, and approach affect collaborative work; improving skills for those leading academic programs and committees at the department, college, and institution levels; enhancing ability to identify faculty for committee work and future academic leadership roles; and increasing interactions among faculty across departments.

This call invites scholars to highlight, examine, and theorize successful faculty leadership development programs and initiatives. Authors might consider best practices implemented or in process on their campuses along with challenges or opportunities involved with engaging faculty and academic administration in faculty leadership development.

Framing questions can include but are not limited to:

  • What are the current and evolving needs among faculty developers organizing leadership-focused programming?
  • What do you envision faculty leadership development looking like in the future?
  • How might faculty leadership development programs incorporate or build upon existing or popular leadership, personality, or self assessments?
  • How might we prioritize faculty leadership development programming offerings?
  • What new practices are evolving to best meet faculty leadership development needs?

 

This call encourages practical, specific programming efforts. Preference will be given to proposals that fully develop a single aspect (vs. sweeping abstractions). Please send 500-word proposals and questions to Russell Carpenter at russell.carpenter@eku.edu. Authors of accepted proposals will receive detailed guidelines for manuscript submission.

Deadlines

  • May 1, 2017: 500-word proposals due
  • June 15, 2017: Authors notified of review results
  • September 15, 2017: Full articles of approximately 3,500 words returned to guest editor
  • November 15, 2017: Article revisions sent to authors

Teens and Tweens: What they need from us and we want from them

The Southwest Chapter of the Pennsylvania Library Association is seeking presenters for its spring workshop, “Teens and Tweens: What they need from us and we want from them.”

Tweens are considered to be between the age of 10-12 and teens are 13-19.  Interacting with them has an impact on all types of librarians.  For school librarians, these students span the world between children’s and young adult resources as they learn how to access and process information. For public librarians, serving this group runs the gamut from collection development to programming. For academic librarians, how public and school librarians serve these groups determines how prepared for college work they are when they arrive as freshman. Presenters should consider how to meet the needs of this age group while presenting on best practices for bridging the transition from pre-adolescent – to teen – to adult.

Presentations are open to school, public, and academic librarians. To submit a workshop proposal click here… https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SWChapterspringworkshop2017

Deadline for proposal submission is March 17, 2017

DEVELOPING A CURRICULUM TO ADVANCE LIBRARY-BASED PUBLISHING

Call for Authors

The “DEVELOPING A CURRICULUM TO ADVANCE LIBRARY-BASED PUBLISHING” project (IMLS, 2016-2018) invites proposals to create a curriculum to support library-based publishers. This invitation extends to professionals in library publishing (past or present), LPC members/practitioners, LIS/iSchool professors, PhD candidates, and others with an interest and/or experience in this growing area of activity. Each proposal may be authored by an individual or a team. Proposals are invited between January 9 and February 28, 2017.

Each proposal should focus on ONE of the following four course topics: Policy, Content, Impact, or Sustainability. See the Library Publishing Curriculum Framework for more details on what each of these course topics might include.

Each selected author will develop a self-paced online course covering approximately 5-7 subtopics and providing approximately 15 hours of instruction and materials.

Selected proposal authors will:

  • Attend an in-person retreat with the project team and fellow authors to review program goals, discuss formats and learning styles, and refine the learning objectives and methods we will use for each course and its subtopics (April-May, 2017).
  • Assemble the following learning materials for each course subtopic: learning objectives, readings, a narrative core for the course, a brief annotated bibliography, case studies, and exercises (May-August, 2017).
  • Refine the materials according to guidance from an Instructional Designer (August-September, 2017).
  • Create a course guide to support those who may use the materials (October 2017).
  • Assist in the creation of evaluation instruments tied to the learning objectives and competencies covered in your course (November-December, 2017).
  • Be invited to participate as a panelist at the 2018 Library Publishing Forum to talk about the project and the course materials (March-April, 2018).

The curriculum is expected to reach more than 100 students in the first year of pilot experiences (2018) through LIS programs, professional development workshops, and online courses.

We are pleased to be able to offer an honorarium of $4,000 for each of the four course topics (Policy, Content, Impact, and Sustainability). This honorarium will be provided to each of the four authors (or author teams) as they complete their work on the four course topics in December 2017, in recognition of the time and energy course development requires. Travel expenses will be covered for each of the four authors (or, in the case of a team, the lead author) to attend the in-person retreat. In addition, each author will have an opportunity to present at the 2018 Library Publishing Forum.

Proposals are due by 5pm PT on February 28, 2017. Authors will be notified by March 31, 2017.

Proposals should consist of:

  • A 1-2 page summary of your proposed approach to designing and developing the self-paced online course on one of the four named topics (Policy, Content, Impact, or Sustainability) and its range of potential subtopics (please see the Framework for more information).
  • A current author CV. For team proposals, a CV should be included for each team member, along with brief contribution statements, and a lead author for correspondence should be identified.
  • A brief (one paragraph) statement of purpose, explaining why you are interested in being an author in this project.

Proposals will be reviewed and authors selected by the Advisory Board, with the following criteria in mind:

  • Successful proposals will demonstrate knowledge of the relevant topics, effective written communication skills, understanding of diverse learning styles, and will cover the topics and objectives laid out in the framework.
  • The field of library publishing includes a broad range of publication types and activities (e.g., journals, monographs, ETDs, and textbooks, in both restricted and open access formats), and proposals that reflect this range will be prioritized.
  • Care will be taken to assemble a group of authors with diverse voices in terms of gender, sexuality, race, and cultural backgrounds.

Please submit your proposals to: Melanie@educopia.org, Courtney@educopia.org
