We are pleased to announce that the next Annual Meeting of the Northern California Technical Processes Group (NCTPG) will take place in San Francisco on Friday, May 8, 2020.

Our 83rd annual meeting theme is “Open in Technical Services”

For 2020, we will have two options for presenting. Full presentations are usually 20-30 minutes with additional participation in a panel discussion. Or participants can do a 5 minute lightning round talk on a project or idea that fits the theme.

At this event, we expect to have a broad representation of types of libraries (public, academic, special) and a diverse representation of roles within and around technical services.  This half-day event will be held in Koret Auditorium at San Francisco Public Library, with optional afternoon tours of related interest nearby.

Possible topics related to the theme include:

  • How Open Access resources are organized and maintained in your library system.
  • Ebook package management
  • Managing vendor relationships in the digital landscape
  • Digital repository management
  • Accessing, cataloging and maintaining free and open resources on the web
  • Maximizing library resources on a tightening budget
  • Textbook management and Open Educational Resources

Please submit your proposal to the NCTPG steering committee with the subject “2020 Call for Presentations” at nctpg1@gmail.com.

Deadline for submission: Friday, January 3, 2020.

Throughout the day, a variety of peers and experts will present on a diverse range of OER topics. Register now for an action-packed day of information and knowledge and gain access to all presentations post-conference for later viewing.

As the cost of textbooks and other educational materials are exponentially increasing, many institutions of higher education and PK-12 schools are adopting open educational resources (OER) as alternatives for their students. Libraries are starting to see OER as part of a trickle-down effect. More and more librarians are now being tasked with supporting faculty, students, and other members of their communities with the adoption of OER.

Join us on December 4, 2019 for an Amigos Library Services online conference, The Library’s Role in Supporting Open Educational Resources, where we will explore the roles libraries of all types play in supporting open educational resources. Regina Gong, the Open Educational Resources (OER) & Student Success Librarian at Michigan State University, will kick off the conference at 10 am Central with her opening keynote, Paving the Way Towards Students Success: Librarians as Leaders and Partners in OER Initiatives. This keynote presentation will highlight the work done by librarians in advancing awareness of and advocacy for open education. How can librarians provide meaningful support and be an integral partner to the different stakeholders on campus to encourage and sustain OER adoptions? More importantly, she will share how we as a community can ensure that our work is supported, valued, and celebrated. Throughout the rest of the day learn about how libraries are supporting OER in specific subject areas, developing partnerships with faculty and students, using OER in the classroom, cataloging OER materials, and much more.

Introduction to Scholarly Communications

Instructor: Carli Spina
Dates: June 3rd through 28th, 2019
Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs
Price: $175

http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/152-scholarly-communications.php

The scholarly publishing environment continues to evolve, but one aspect that has not changed is the central role that librarians play in this arena. Faculty are looking to the library for advice on how to navigate the increasingly complicated process of publications and for guidance on the impact copyright has on both their own publications and the materials that they use in their classes. Once librarians have established their expertise in these areas, they not only have an opportunity to offer much needed services to their patrons but also to serve as true advocates on campus in conversations about Open Access, tenure procedures, and course design.

In this course, participants will gain an understanding of the scholarly communications landscape and will learn the basics on academic publishing issues, copyright, Open Access, and institutional repositories. By the end of the course, participants will be prepared to:
– advise colleagues and patrons on scholarly communications issues,
– determine whether their institution should have an institutional repository and, if so, how it should be administered
– navigate common copyright issues that occur in libraries and academic institutions
– advocate for change at their institutions
– keep up-to-date in this fast changing area of librarianship

Carli Spina is an academic librarian. Previously, she was the Head Librarian, Assessment and Outreach at the Boston College Libraries. Carli holds a J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School, an MLIS from Simmons GSLIS, and an M.Ed. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She has extensive experience working on user experience, web design, and technology projects as well as serving as a coordinator for services to patrons with disabilities. She is a member of LITA’s Bylaws and Organization Committee. She was also the inaugural chair of LITA’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee and the leader of the ASCLA Library Services to People with Visual or Physical Disabilities that Prevent Them from Reading Standard Print Interest Group. She teaches classes and workshops for librarians, academic staff, and students on a range of topics, including accessibility, user experience, and web design.
