Attention reference and instruction librarian staff! The CARLI Counts Technical Services team is investigating how you perceive the value of enhanced cataloging upon the process of identifying resources for a student and they need your input. Please take about 10 minutes of your time to fill out their survey, “Perceived Value of Cataloging in Identifying Resources for Students”. This team of librarians is part of the second cohort of CARLI Counts, a three-year project funded by an IMLS grant that prepares academic librarians to make effective use of research findings on the impact of student success.

You are being invited to participate in a survey research study. Your participation is voluntary which means you can choose whether you want to participate. You may withdraw at any time without penalty.

Project Title: Perceived Value of Cataloging in Identifying Resources for Students

Principal Investigator: Tammie Busch – Southern Illinois University Edwardsville

Co-Investigators: Mary Konkel – College of Dupage, Susan Howell – Southern Illinois University Carbondale, Mingyan Li – University of Illinois at Chicago, Ross Taft – Illinois State Library, Cathy Mayer – Lake Forest College, Dennis Krieb – Lewis & Clark Community College

The purpose of this survey is to assist a team of technical services librarians in investigating how reference and instruction librarians and staff perceive the value of enhanced cataloging upon the process of identifying resources for a student. This team of librarians is part of the second cohort of CARLI Counts, a three-year project funded by an IMLS grant that prepares academic librarians to make effective use of research findings on the impact of student success. This survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Potential Risks: It is expected that participation in this study will provide you with no more than minimal risk or discomfort which means that you should not experience it as any more troubling than your normal daily life. While there are no direct benefits to participating, your response will help us to better understand the research topic.

Potential Benefits: The survey results will help librarians and staff with cataloging responsibilities better understand what bibliographic information is most helpful to reference and instruction librarians and staff in locating resources for students. The study results will also help librarians and staff with cataloging duties learn what bibliographic information they should prioritize when cataloging resources.

Confidentiality: CARLI Counts will not be collecting any personal information for the study. All responses to this survey are anonymous and confidential. Your name or identity will not be linked in any way to the research data. If you have any questions about your rights or any other concerns, you may contact the SIUE Institutional Review Board, at (618) 650-3010 or irbtraining@siue.edu.

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.
