CARLI Seeking Project Ideas for 2018-2019 Grant Proposals

(via CARLI)

CARLI is eager to apply for grants that address the emerging needs of the profession. You can be part of that effort! Submit your ideas (through your Director or Dean, please) to Anne Craig at abcraig@uillinois.edu.

CARLI will review each grant idea to determine whether we have the necessary administrative capacity to support and implement the grant as lead applicant. If so, we will issue a call for volunteers to serve on an ad hoc task force for the specific grant. This task force will review the viability of the grant for the CARLI membership and will be actively involved in writing and compiling the application package.

Feel free to contact Senior Director Craig with any questions, comments, or ideas.

Hello CARLI members! The applications are coming in, but I want to be sure that everyone has seen the application/participation information. The Library Application Form is available here. If you have trouble meeting the November 23 deadline, please let me know.

Please share this message widely.

Dear CARLI Members:

Have you wanted your library to…

  • Create a powerful impact narrative for your library?
  • Use data in a compelling way to tell your library’s story to your stakeholders?
  • Demonstrate how your library supports graduation and retention rates?

Come join us!

CARLI Counts is a continuing education library leadership immersion program that prepares librarians to make effective use of research findings on the impact of academic libraries on student success for the twin purposes of service development and library advocacy. Program participants will learn how to use local library data analytics in alignment with institutional data, goals, and strategic priorities to improve their services and demonstrate their value.

CARLI Counts deliverables will include a portfolio of local case studies, an evaluation of the collective statewide impact of those cases, and a replicable state/regional training model for equipping librarians to be campus leaders in assessing library impact on student learning and success, all of which will be made openly available on the CARLI website. CARLI will work in partnership with the University of Illinois Library at Urbana-Champaign and Lewis & Clark Community College. “CARLI Counts: Analytics and Advocacy for Service Development,” is funded by an Institute of Museum and Library Services, Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant.

The program features two cohorts, each with 30 attendees and 6 mentors. The cohorts will meet in person for two sessions, two days each session, for a total of four in-person days. Each cohort will be divided into six teams of five, each with one mentor.

Cohort 1 will meet February 20-21, and July 16-17, 2019, at the I Hotel in Champaign, Illinois. Lodging and meals are paid for by the grant. Participants will be expected to attend the 2019 CARLI Annual Meeting, tentatively scheduled for November 22, 2019, in Champaign.

What is the target audience?

Come as you are, leave different. All CARLI member libraries are the intended audience! Your library does not need to have a staff member dedicated solely to institutional research, or prior experience with the topics of assessment or data gathering. Come and learn from where you are.

How does my library participate?

To be considered for participation, complete the Library Application Form (see link above) and submit it to Anne Craig, at abcraig@uillinois.edu, by Friday, November 23, 2018. If your library is invited to participate, one person from your library will complete an Individual Information Form, available here on the CARLI Counts web site.

Libraries will be invited to participate based on evaluation of these criteria:

  • Strength of the application narrative
  • Statewide geographical representation among the applicant pool
  • Diverse library type representation among the applicant pool (public university, private institutions, community colleges)

Cohort 1 Library Application Forms are due November 23, 2018.

  • Library Directors/Deans will be notified of decisions by December 7, 2018.
  • Individual Information Forms from invited institutions are due December 14, 2018.

For more information about this project or with any questions, please contact Anne Craig.

Note: CARLI has postponed this webinar and will reschedule it for a later date.

The next session in the Voyager Skills Webinar series will take place this Friday, November 9, at 11:00 a.m. Our topic this week is Patron Data Maintenance.

Join the session at http://webjunctionillinois.adobeconnect.com/reports_webinar/, or catch the recording later.

Would you like some tools for finding inconsistent patron data, particularly data that may hinder a patron’s ability to log in to the catalog or place a request, or that may prevent the library from removing obsolete data in the future. In this session, we’ll examine some reports and maintenance workflows for identifying and correcting problematic patron data.

It is with great pleasure that I make the following announcement:

Ex Libris Alma has been chosen for our next I-Share platform! Alma will replace Voyager and SFX in 2020 for the 91 institutions that are part of CARLI’s I-Share resource sharing system. We look forward to Alma helping CARLI extend and expand the resource sharing and collaborative programs that our consortium has offered our members for almost 40 years.

Please join me in expressing deep appreciation and thanks to the tireless and most extraordinary members of the I-Share Next Task Force. Task force members spent four years on this project, shaping member input and aspirations into a highly detailed, thorough, and complex RFP that was issued and awarded through the University’s procurement process. They persevered through many challenges and stayed on course, worked through weekends and holidays, and have now secured a wonderful new service for our membership. We all owe them great praise for their contributions to our consortium, dividends that will be paid for many years to come. I am especially grateful to Kristine Hammerstrand, Chair of the I-Share Next Task Force, for her unfailing devotion to this project and its successful conclusion.

I-Share Next Task Force

“As centers of learning and catalysts of community change, libraries and museums connect people with programs, services, collections, information, and new ideas in the arts, sciences, and humanities. They serve as vital spaces where people can connect with each other,” said IMLS Director Dr. Kathryn K. Matthew. “IMLS is proud to support their work through our grant making as they inform and inspire all in their communities.”

The Resource Sharing Committee is seeking people to share their expertise at the upcoming forum at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library on Thursday, October 25, 2018.

We are seeking additional proposals for either portions of, or entire, 50-minute afternoon breakout sessions.

*         If you have experience in one of the areas described below, but would prefer to be a part of a small panel discussion/shared presentation on the topic rather than present the full breakout session on your own, please indicate that in your proposal and the Committee can pair similar presenters together for a shared session.

*         We are also seeking moderators to help lead guided discussions of selected topics; please let us know if you are interested in participating in this way.

Please submit your proposal here before Friday, August 31st:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RSForum

Thank you. Your knowledge and willingness to share with colleagues is important to the life of the consortium.

——————————
Some questions that the CARLI Resource Sharing Community is interested in hearing more about are listed below. If you could answer yes to any of them (or related questions), please consider submitting a proposal.

-Are you responsible for compiling statistics and reports for your ILL services? Do you have any hints, tricks, or best practices you could share with others to aid them in this task? If you write a report, could you share information about it: what statistics you include, who you share your report with, what happens with the data from you report?

-Do your users know what Interlibrary Loan can do for them? How do you tell them?

-Are you in communication with your Collection development department so they know what kind of requests are coming through the library? Do you have a method or regular reporting system to keep them informed?

-How do you educate your student workers & staff to keep an eye out for damaged items & know what to do if they find them?

-Are there other topics related to resource sharing that you would be interested in presenting on?
