I am seeking responses for a survey being used to collect information for an upcoming article appearing in the Illinois Library Association’s ILA Reporter magazine. The topic of the article is “community engagement through makers and the maker movement”. I am interested in learning about maker programs from both inside and outside the library building. I am seeking examples from all types, sizes, and locations of libraries across the state. Examples from outside of the Chicago area, including central and southern Illinois, are especially welcome. The deadline to submit responses is Saturday, Feb 15, 2020.

To access the survey, please go to https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1lhVd5VtEOn4FpyPjHU9W57D9jq1mzP5hVGqIvxYeR3M/viewform?edit_requested=true. Please direct any questions to tpetrov@fountaindale.org.

(via RAILS)

An upcoming issue of the ILA Reporter will feature an article about “unplugged libraries” – libraries with activities and spaces that don’t require technology. This could include (but is not limited to) “mindfulness” programs, like yoga or meditation; arts & crafts; or a dedicated quiet space in your library for stress reduction or sensory issues.

All who are willing to share their experiences with unplugged libraries are welcome to respond to this survey. Rural and academic libraries are specifically sought, as well as libraries beyond the major Chicago area. Please contact Kim Tipton if you have any questions. The deadline to submit responses is Saturday, February 1.

As you may or may not be aware, the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education (“the Standards”) was replaced by the Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education (“the Framework”) in 2015.

This means that the Information Literacy Competency Standards for Nursing, established in 2013, is in need of revision to align with the Framework.

Our intended audience is librarians, especially those connected with information literacy (IL) instruction for Nursing and the Health Sciences. We are seeking information on how you’ve been using the ACRL Framework thus far in instructional sessions/contexts for Nursing and the Health Sciences. We are also capturing information on instructional technologies as connected to this topic and whether you would be interested in seeing the draft of the Framework for IL in Higher Ed in Nursing when it’s ready.

Prospective participants can access the survey through this link.

The Illinois Library Association’s Best Practices Committee is charged with curating and disseminating best practices for libraries throughout the State of Illinois. We are currently seeking best practices for self-service hold options that safeguard patron privacy. The committee hopes you will take a moment to complete a survey about your library’s practices. Even if your library does not offer self-service holds, we would still like your input.

Participants have the option to receive a copy of the survey data. Unless you are requesting a copy of the survey data, your submission will be anonymous.

The survey is available here. It is estimated to take seven minutes to complete, and responses will be accepted until Friday, November 1, 2019.

The Grainger Engineering Library at the University of Illinois invites you to take part in a web based online survey on how academic libraries are developing, integrating and implementing technologies to support immersive scholarship at their institution. We define immersive scholarship as any scholarly work developed through or implemented utilizing technologies including Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, Visualization (i.e., large format displays and visualization walls, GIS, Tableau), and any related hardware, programs or software.

We are seeking survey participants who are employed in an academic library and who currently support immersive scholarship and technologies at their institution.

In particular we are interested in how your academic library has developed tools, implemented third party hardware/software, and in what barriers you have identified at your institution in supporting immersive scholarship.

Link to Online Survey

This survey will remain open until September 20, 2019.

Participation will involve an eight question survey which will take approximately ten to fifteen minutes to complete. Your decision to participate or decline participation in this study is completely voluntary and you have the right to terminate your participation at any time without penalty.

Will my study-related information be kept confidential?

We will use all reasonable efforts to keep your personal information confidential, but we cannot guarantee absolute confidentiality. When this research is discussed or published, no one will know that you were in the study. But, when required by law or university policy, identifying information may be seen or copied by:

·         Representatives of the university committee and office that reviews and approves research studies, the Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Office for Protection of Research Subjects;

·         Other representatives of the state and university responsible for ethical, regulatory, or financial  oversight of research;

·         Federal government regulatory agencies such as the Office of Human Research Protections in the Department of Health and Human Services.

There is no expected risk to you for helping me with this study. There are no expected direct benefits to you either, though participants may find that the publications and presentations resulting from this study can help better strengthen our understanding of how academic libraries are supporting immersive scholarship and technologies.

When the results of the research are published or discussed in conferences, no information will be included that would reveal your identity.

If you have questions about this project, you may contact Alex (Elisandro) Cabada at cabada@illinois.edu or at 217-300-4686.
