The CARLI Instruction Committee is planning a fall webinar focused on instruction and the Primo VE user experience. The webinar, titled “Primo VE in Practice–Life After Going Live”, will take place on Wednesday, December 2, at 1:00 PM CDT.

The Committee is soliciting volunteers who would be willing to participate in a moderated panel or deliver a brief 10-15 minute presentation focused on their practical experiences instructing patrons on how to use Primo VE, whether at a reference desk, in a classroom, or other setting. The committee is seeking information on best practices for teaching Primo VE, examples of materials created for instruction, or other strategies developed for making the most out of the new system.

Interested presenters (either individuals or groups) should submit an approximately-100-word description of the approach or strategy they’d like to discuss. To submit a proposal, please click here. The deadline for submissions is Monday, October 19.

Please contact committee co-chairs Christina Norton (cnorton@fsmail.bradley.edu) or Dee Anna Phares (dphares@niu.edu), or the CARLI Office (support@carli.illinois.edu), with any questions.

CARLI is pleased to offer a 3-week synchronous and asynchronous course on open educational resources. This course will be offered in September with the live sessions on September 15, 22, and 29 (all Tuesdays), from 1:00 to 2:15 PM. Asynchronous materials will be shared with registrants on September 10 to prepare for the first live session.

This virtual course includes material that was first shared with the CARLI membership during the “Open Textbook Network Train-the-Trainer” workshops in Spring 2018, and is designed to help the novice person learning about open educational resources to apply the information from this program to build their own local programs and workshops.

Attendees should plan to attend each live session. CARLI is planning to offer this program multiple times throughout the year.

The virtual program will contain both synchronous (3 live 75 minutes Zoom sessions) and asynchronous (readings, videos, etc.) to be completed before each live session. The live sessions will include presentations, but the aim of the program planners is that these will incorporate a flipped classroom model to build community among participants as all share and discuss the topics.

For more information or to register, visit the event page. Registration is available through Wednesday, September 9, or until the course is full.

If you have any questions, please send them to CARLI Support, at support@carli.illinois.edu.

CARLI Cancels All in-Person Events Indefinitely

(via Anne Craig, CARLI Senior Director)

I hope this message finds you well. We know that you are facing many challenges these days. I write today to notify you that ongoing concerns about safety in the face of the pandemic have prompted us to cancel CARLI in-person events indefinitely.

This includes the in-person CARLI 40th Anniversary Celebration and Scholarship Kick-Off, scheduled for November 12, 2020; and the November 13, 2020, CARLI Annual Directors Meeting and CARLI Annual Meeting. 

We are unsure of when we will be able to celebrate our anniversary; however, we will schedule a virtual CARLI Annual Directors Meeting and a virtual CARLI Annual Meeting in November. Details about the schedules, topics, and format are forthcoming. Please remember to cancel hotel reservations and any other arrangements you may have made for these CARLI events.

CARLI Counts Cohort 2 had a meeting scheduled on November 12, 2020. This meeting has been canceled as well. For this CARLI Counts event, CARLI staff will cancel hotel reservations.

Thank you so much for bearing with us in this time. I appreciate so much your support and engagement.

The Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI) is pleased to announce that Victoria Turner, Cataloging Assistant at Harper College Library in Palatine, has been selected to receive the CARLI Scholarship. CARLI is awarding this scholarship for the first time for the 2020/2021 academic year.

“My first semester at the iSchool at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign has already enriched my knowledge and furthered my enthusiasm of libraries and librarianship,” Turner said. “I am both thankful and humbled by the generosity of the CARLI scholarship donors. Knowing that I have the support of the CARLI family cheering me on inspires me as I continue my studies of information organization and metadata standards and practices.”

Turner was selected based on her response to a personal essay question regarding her professional goals and objectives in pursuing a library career that demonstrates a commitment to the profession and the strength of her references.

“We are thrilled to award this scholarship for the first time in our history, and so pleased to be able to help support the education of one of the dedicated staff of our CARLI libraries,” said CARLI Senior Director Anne Craig. “I am grateful to the Scholarship Fund donors who have so generously supported this important new program, helping CARLI to grow the profession.”

The CARLI Scholarship provides financial assistance to current employees of CARLI Governing Member Libraries pursuing graduate studies leading to a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. CARLI established the scholarship in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of resource sharing by CARLI and its predecessor organizations. The scholarship is funded by donations. For more information about the Scholarship Fund, go here.

The CARLI Instruction Committee is seeking presentation proposals for the 8th annual Instruction Showcase. This year’s Online Showcase will take place on Friday, May 29.

CARLI members are welcome to submit proposals on all library instruction topics, and encouraged to draw inspiration from the committee’s theme this year, “Fresh Starts and Restarts: Growing Beyond Your Comfort Zone.” Lesson plans related to the theme might include new approaches to evaluating information, reimagined instruction for improved accessibility, student-centered approaches to learning, and culturally sustaining pedagogies, as well as techniques for teaching new systems such as Primo VE. We also welcome proposals that focus on the shift to online instruction or strategies developed in reaction to the current crisis.

Proposals should outline an instructional activity that supports skills-based or conceptual learning and encourages active student participation. Please include a full lesson plan with your proposal. Check with CARLI for a template.

All lesson plans must include the following elements: topic, learning objectives, materials, activity overview, assessment of student learning, and applicable knowledge practices and/or dispositions from the Framework for Information Literacy. Presenters will be given 15 minutes to present and five minutes for questions and answers.

If interested, please submit the proposal form found here no later than 5:00 PM on Friday, May 8. Submissions will be reviewed by the CARLI Instruction Committee; notifications will be sent during the week of May 11.

Please send any questions about the Instruction Showcase to support@carli.illinois.edu.
