Migrations to new Library Services Platforms can be challenging, but they also provide opportunities for improvement.  In July of 2019, SUNY Libraries went live with Alma and Primo. The 2020 SUNYLA Midwinter Virtual Conference, Life After Migration: Making Alma and Primo work for Everyone, is an opportunity to learn from the trials, tribulations, and successes of those who have migrated to Alma and Primo.  Our presenters, representing a variety of public and private institutions from across the country, will focus on the ways that libraries have changed their library instruction, their in-house workflows, and their discovery interface to better suit their patrons after going live with ALMA and Primo.  Come share your experiences and join your library colleagues at the SUNYLA Midwinter Virtual Conference on February 7, 2020 (10:00am – 3:30pm EST).

Technology requirements for attendance:  Computer, internet connection, microphone/speakers (headset recommended) or telephone.  Zoom will be used for this conference and is free for use by attendees.

You do not need to be a SUNYLA member in order to attend this free conference.  To read more about the conference sessions, please check the session description page here:  https://sunyla.org/sunyla-midwinter-2020/

“Introduction to Design Thinking”

Instructor: Carli Spina
Dates: February 3rd through March 1st, 2020
Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs
Price: $175

http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/160-design-thinking.php

Though the word “design” may readily bring to mind an image of architecture or graphic design, it is much broader than that. Design impacts virtually all aspects of library work from space design to service design to curriculum design. But, how do you ensure that your design is successful? Design Thinking is an approach to tackling problems and developing creative, user-centered solutions. This course will walk participants through the theory behind this process and offer a chance to gain hands-on experience with each step in the Design Thinking cycle. Participants will learn how libraries have found success through Design Thinking and techniques for bringing Design Thinking to any type of library.

At the end of this course, students will be able to:
– Define Design Thinking and understand each of the steps in the process
– Understand how Design Thinking has been applied in a range of library settings
– Apply the steps of the Design Thinking process
– Build prototypes
– Ideate and develop ideas, including as part of a group

This course can be taken as one of six courses needed to earn our Certificate in User Experience (UX), but can be taken as a stand-alone course as well.

Free IACRL Webinar
Tuesday, January 28, 2020
1:00 – 2:00 PM

Libraries Are Open for Learning: Using OER to Support Students and Faculty

Open Educational resources (OER) have quickly become an answer to addressing higher education affordability, increasing student completer success raters and reducing equating gaps, and increasing pedagogical innovations. As libraries support the very essence of “open”, librarians and library staff are primed to lead OER efforts at colleges and universities. After setting baselines, including definitions and efficacy of OER, this webinar will discuss some OER and Open program opportunities your library can select to implement and support, no matter where you’re at in the OER adoption process. We encourage you to bring your ideas for OER programs that others can adapt, and your questions and concerns.

Register here. Please direct any questions to Michelle Nielsen Ott, 2019-2020 IACRL President, at mnielsenott@methodistcol.edu.

“Academia 101: A Crash Course on How Colleges and Universities Work”

Instructor: Annie Downey

Dates: January 6th through 31st, 2020

Credits: 1.5 CEUs or 15 PDHs

Price: $175

http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/058-academia-101.php

Academia is a world all its own. Understanding how it works is one of the most important things academic librarians need to know to be successful. This course will focus on the structural aspects of higher education that make it unique and can be challenging for librarians new to academia to learn quickly on the job. Participants will gain a broad understanding of academic culture, including governance structures and the roles and responsibilities of faculty and administrators. You will learn about issues important to administrators, such as retention, accreditation, and funding; and issues important to faculty, such as tenure, research, and shared governance; and how these can sometimes create tension within organizations. You will learn about the structure of faculty work and begin to develop ideas on how you can integrate your work as a librarian effectively into the teaching and research cycle. We will look at some of the broad disciplinary differences at play and how these show up in how students and faculty use the library. All aspects of the course will be geared towards helping you use your new knowledge of how higher education is organized and functions to communicate effectively with faculty, administrators, and staff.

This course can be taken as one of six courses needed to earn our Certificate in Scholarly Communication, but can be taken as a stand-alone course as well. http://libraryjuiceacademy.com/certificate-sc.php

Participants will learn:

* What to communicate to patrons and the community during a crisis
* Why it is important to develop a crisis communication plan before it’s needed
* Strategies developing the plan
* How to identify the most important communication channels and when to use them
