Conversation Starters: Military Writers Workshops: Community Programming for Military Veterans Program Anaheim Convention Center
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!

Check Out Science in the Library: How Library Kits Help Families Share Science Poster session Anaheim Convention Center
Exhibit Hall Poster Area Table 16
Description :

Juvenile library collections should contain interactive materials related to science. Three years ago Oakland Public Library entered into a partnership with Lawrence Hall of Science to create science kits for libraries. Geared toward grades 1-5 and covering a wide range of topics from bird beaks to oil spills, these kits contained: an age-appropriate book, an experiment journal which users kept, detailed instruction sheets outlining the experiment, any needed scientific aids, e.g. a magnifying glass, and a free pass to the museum so that participants could further explore science. Oakland Public Library created and included in the kits a bibliography of other recommended titles that children could check out. An annual science festival was created at each participating library to introduce the kits and spur interest. Evaluation and measurement of this project was accomplished by tracking usage of kits and participation at science festivals. Kit users, festival participants, and library staff were interviewed and asked to fill out written questionnaires. Session participants will bring kits for examination and will set up one or two experiments from the kits which attendees can try. Photos of past science festivals and evaluation data will be available on the posters and in electronic formats.

Developing a Downloadable Audiobook Collection in an Academic Library Poster session Anaheim Convention Center
Exhibit Hall Poster Area Table 15
Description :

Downloadable audiobooks are a relatively new addition to the ever-widening world of electronic resources available in libraries. Instead of checking out audiobooks as physical CDs, patrons are able to access them as digital audio files through the library's website. Once the patron "checks out" the audiobook online, it can be downloaded to a home computer, laptop, or a variety of portable listening devices (such as iPhones). Seeing electronic audiobooks as potentially very helpful for college students, two academic librarians at Southeastern Louisiana University developed a small collection as a pilot project for their library. This poster session illustrates their experience with starting the project, including the various questions and choices they encountered. How should a provider be chosen? What if funding is not available for a subscription service? Can the audio files be downloaded to any of the different mobile devices library users may own? The poster also highlights the selection process and the efforts the librarians made to choose audiobook titles that would be most relevant to academic coursework. The poster session will feature portable listening devices with selected audio clips in order to demonstrate usability and sound quality to attendees.

Finding Repositories of Research Data With Databib Poster session Anaheim Convention Center
Exhibit Hall Poster Area Table 12
Description :

With support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the libraries of Purdue and Pennsylvania State University have collaborated to create Databib: an online, annotated bibliography of research data repositories. A number of academic and research libraries are taking an active role in data curation, applying library science principles to help address the data deluge. Librarians are helping researchers formulate funder-required data plans, adapting library practice to help organize and describe research datasets, developing data collections and data repositories, performing digital preservation, and teaching data literacy. Librarians are in a good position to provide these services; unfortunately, there is currently no framework in place to support the organization and discovery of data repositories. Many funding agencies are requiring their sponsored researchers to submit their data to repositories without giving further instructions to them. What repositories are appropriate for a researcher to submit his or her data? How do potential users find appropriate data repositories and discover datasets that meet their needs? How can librarians help patrons who are looking for data find and integrate datasets into their research, learning, or teaching? Databib (http://databib.lib.purdue.edu) has been created to help address these needs for librarians, data users, data producers, publishers, and funding agencies.
