Has your library stalled in its attempt to develop a fundraising strategy? Are you trying to raise the community's awareness of the value of your library?

Workshop participants will learn 1) how to recruit celebrity champions and local heroes to promote your library; 2) how to leverage library champions, build a donor database and raise big money for your library; 3) how to build a donor development strategy for everyone in your library; and 4) the essential publications your library must produce to secure funders.

208A
Description :

Join us for a discussion of our experiences organizing, planning, and promoting a series of writing workshops for military veterans in the Washington, D.C. area. Our project builds upon the work of Amy Hartman and Holly Baumgartner that was featured in American Libraries in November 2011; as federal librarians, we were eager to extend such an excellent opportunity for education and lifelong learning to a greater number of veterans. Come learn about the importance of community programming for military veterans, the challenges that libraries may face in the process of developing programs for veterans, and the steps involved in designing our writing workshops! Attendees will gain an appreciation of the art of writing memoir, and will learn that memoir writing offers non-professional writers opportunities to enrich their lives by creating stories based on life experiences, as well as to contribute to the cultural and historical record. Presenters will also discuss marketing, outreach, and promotion of writing workshops, and strategies for overcoming the challenges associated with recruiting participants. We hope you will join us!

Conversation Starters: Webscraping on a Shoestring with No I.T. Support: Libraries Preserving Access to Born-digital Government Information Program Anaheim Convention Center
208A
Description :

Libraries have long served as an access point for researching government information. Libraries in the Federal Depository Library Program are expressly tasked with this responsibility. Libraries also provide access to state and local government information.

More and more government documents appear online only, with no print version available. These documents can be quickly and easily accessed online. But, just as easily, these documents can disappear when an agency is restructured, a new official removes the documents from view, or the agency removes outdated material.

How can libraries ensure access to these born-digital materials? What if an agency is uncooperative or understaffed and cannot provide the library with the needed files?

The Florida State University College of Law Research Center (Research Center) faces similar barriers to other libraries. Staff with expertise in government documents do not have computer programming or strong technological expertise. Information Technology (IT) support is provided outside the library, and the library has limited access to staff who can write computer programs or work with the back end of databases. Nevertheless, there is a need to capture and preserve online government information which is here today, but may be gone tomorrow.

Using simple tools which do not require customization and can be used by nontechnical staff who are comfortable using Excel, the Research Center has “scraped” or mass downloaded thousands of government documents and harvested the metadata from state government websites.

This presentation will demonstrate simple tools and concepts which will allow other libraries and attendees to begin to collect and archive born-digital documents and metadata. Emphasis will be on tips and tricks to work with large numbers of files and large metadata sets at once, but within the constraints of familiar computer tools such as web-browsers and Excel.
