The North Carolina Library Association’s College & University Section is hosting a free webinar, “Collaborating on Course Design: Part II”, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM CST on Wednesday, June 28. (This builds on an earlier webinar, “Collaborating on Course Design: Part I”, which is available for viewing here.) To register for next Wednesday’s webinar, go here. More information about the content and the presenters is below.

Does starting an embedded librarian program seem impossible? The Central Piedmont Community College Library has started on a path to integrate information literacy competencies and outcomes at the curriculum-level. CPCC is doing this through sustainable instructional design by partnering with faculty (and others) to develop and implement course-level content that supports course, program, college, and national outcomes. Librarians coordinate with appropriate faculty and collaborate in three main areas: content, assignments and rubrics, and support. This webinar is a follow-up to the previous CUS Virtual Conference Webinar panel discussion and will provide attendees with specific tips and examples of how to collaborate with faculty to create content.

Mollie Peuler is the eLearning Librarian at Central Piedmont Community College. She received her MLIS from Florida State University. Mollie’s professional interests are in distance learning strategies and instructional design. Outside of the library, Mollie enjoys running, traveling, and checking off lists.

Mark Coltrain is Assistant Director for Instructional and Research Services at Central Piedmont Community College. He graduated with his MLIS from UNC-Greensboro in 2012. Mark’s professional interests are in distance librarianship and instructional collaborations both inside and outside of the library. In his spare time, Mark enjoys craft beer, a good barbecue sandwich, riding his bike, and collecting vinyl records.

Are you a librarian-instructor working with students, faculty and/or staff in the health sciences? How do you teach PubMed (or other NLM resources)?

The NNLM (National Network of Libraries of Medicine) Training Office seeks contributors to a webinar spotlighting instructional projects of by our health science and hospital library community.  This one-hour session will present at least six projects from libraries across the United States. Our goal is to share new ideas plus tried and true methods for teaching PubMed, or other NLM resources, to diverse audiences. We want to hear from libraries in a variety of settings.

For consideration, send a brief description (250 words or less) of your instructional project and how it could be useful to other librarians to molly.knapp@utah.edu. Indicate your preferred presentation length: five minutes, 10 minutes, or 15 minutes. Please note: we request presentations be limited to around five slides. The date of the webinar is Thursday, August 10, at 1:30 PM CST as this is a live webinar, presenters must be available on that date.

Send your proposal to molly.knapp@utah.edu by Wednesday, June 21. You do great work–let others know about it!

The College & University Section of the North Carolina Library Association is offering a free webinar, “Creating an Asynchronous Course for Embedded Librarians”, from 1:00 to 2:00 PM CST on Wednesday, June 14. To register, go here. More information about the webinar and the presenter, Penn State University’s Victoria Raish, is below.

This webinar will go over the evolution and process of creating an asynchronous course for subject librarians to take prior to being embedded in online courses. With over 17,000 World Campus students I cannot take the time to attend and participate in all embedded librarian meetings. However, an asynchronous course that covers the necessary content and prepares librarians who may have never been embedded before on how to embed successfully fills my absence in these conversations. A course like this allows the online or e-learning librarian to focus on coordination of the program at a higher level. Specific topics that will be covered are the balance between personalization and scale in online learning, the decision to make this course an open educational resource for other librarians to use and take, and the assessment and evaluation of the course.

Victoria Raish is the online learning librarian at Penn State University. She has her Ph.D. in Learning, Design, and Technology from Penn State and a master’s in secondary science teaching from the University of Southern California. In her role at Penn State, she is responsible for creating and implementing the services, instruction, and communication strategy with all stakeholders involved with World Campus.

Registration for the next offering of “Systematic Reviews: Opportunities for Librarians” will open on Monday, July 10, at 11:00 AM CST. Registration is capped at 20 participants. This session will be held online between Monday, October 30 and Wednesday, November 15, and it will then finish in person on Thursday, November 16, and Friday, November 17 at the Taubman Health Sciences Library at the University of Michigan. Upon completion, the course is worth 20 CE credits. A brief description of the class’s content and structure is below.

The course provides information professionals with foundational knowledge about systematic reviews and an opportunity to engage in high-level discussions with other librarians about our involvement in such projects. The class runs on a flipped classroom model where didactic material is presented in an asynchronous online format over a period of two weeks. Following the two-week online curriculum, you’ll join us at University of Michigan’s Taubman Health Sciences Library for a two-day intensive workshop. Through hands-on experience with resources, activities, and discussions, you’ll develop a toolkit of resources and strategies, and an action plan to take back to your home institution for greater involvement in systematic reviews.

For more information about the course, including sample content, please visit the course website.

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine – Greater Midwest Region is offering the class “Health Services Research & Public Health Information: An Introduction to NICHSR ONESearch”. The webinar will take place on Thursday, June 29, from 12:00 to 1:00 PM CST. To register, go here. More information about the class is below.

In December 2016, the National Information Center on Health Services Research and Health Care Technology (NICHSR) released NICHSR ONESearch. This consolidated search site allows researchers to search two unique databases and two specialized web portals with one simple search.

  • Health Services Research Projects in Progress (HSRProj)–information about ongoing health services research and public health projects
  • Health Services and Sciences Research Resources (HSRR)–health services research and public health research relevant data sets, instruments and software
  • Health Services Research Information Central (HSRIC)–links to high-quality news, data/tools/methods and grey literature selected to meet the needs of the health services research community
  • Partners in Information Access for the Public Health Workforce (PHPartners)–links to high-quality news, data/tools/methods and grey literature selected to meet the needs of the public health workforce

Join us for this online webinar as we learn more about NICHSR ONESearch, the underlying databases and websites, and when to use each resource! This session will be presented by Patricia Gallagher from the National Information Center on Health Services Research and Health Care Technology office The webinar is part of the GMR’s “Kernel of Knowledge” series. The GMR Office provides one-hour training sessions on topics of interest to Network members several times a year. Formerly known as “Lake Effects”, the new name reflects the GMR’s current initiatives for the 2016-2021 grant.
