Thanks Ohio Library Council! Adopt or Adapt?

Tame the Web - Fri, 2017-10-13 15:01

Thanks to all the great folks at the Ohio Library Council. I had a wonderful time in Dayton. My talk:

Adopt or Adapt: Approaches to Emerging Tech and Trends
Presenter: Michael Stephens, San Jose State University
There’s no doubt about it. Library Information Science has become a technology-driven field. Information technology is impacting every industry right now, and libraries are no different. Note the influx of job descriptions for emerging tech librarians, user experience specialists, and others who guide technology-focused projects and departments. But, emerging tech is just one part of the bigger picture. The best librarians will be creative, fearless, and curious about everything. Even if you’re not an early adopter of the latest technology trends, this session will explore how to be an early adaptor.

Explore Reproducibility & Open Scholarship in a new LITA web course

LITA Blog - Mon, 2017-10-09 15:28

Sign up today for 

Building Services Around Reproducibility & Open Scholarship

Instructor: Vicky Steeves, Librarian for Research Data Management and Reproducibility, a dual appointment between New York University Division of Libraries and NYU Center for Data Science
November 1 – November 22, 2017
Please note this course start date has been re-scheduled from a previous date.

As research across domains of study has become increasingly reliant on digital tools, the challenges in achieving reproducibility have grown. Alongside this reproducibility challenge are the demands for open scholarship, such as releasing code, data, and articles under an open license. Openness is an important step towards reproducibility, but it cannot be the end of the road. This class will focus on open scholarship and reproducibility as two distinct but connected topics.

Register here, courses are listed by date

This course will examine, cover and discuss:

  • The discourse around open scholarship
  • Best practices around use of open source tools, creating an open web presence, preparing research output for publication, and linking those outputs to more traditional publications.
  • The tools that both researchers and librarians are using to engage in open work.

Spotlight Series: Brittney Buckland

LITA Blog - Thu, 2017-10-05 13:28

Have you ever seen a really interesting library position and wondered how the person got there? This series will interview tech librarians to learn more about their journey, how they stay informed about emerging technologies, and tools they can’t live without.

Allow me to introduce Brittney Buckland, Head of Technical Services at Merrimack Public Library in New Hampshire. Below is an excerpt of our interview, the full transcript can be accessed here.

Brittney Buckland, Head of Technical Services at Merrimack Public Library

What is your background?

“My undergraduate degree is a BA in the Arts: Art History from the University of New Hampshire (UNH). I finished my MSLIS with a specialization in Library and Information Services in 2013. I completed my Master’s completely online through Drexel University. I recently finished a secondary M.Ed. in Educational Studies through UNH, also completely online.”

What were some of your early library jobs and how did they prepare you for your current position?

Brittney’s first library job was as a Student Library Assistant in an academic setting, where she learned the basics of page duties, as well as performing minor reference work.

In my current position I still work on the floor so the skills I learned as a Student Library Assistant are still useful to me. I currently spend one night a week and am part of a weekend rotation to work on the Reference desk. I believe those public desk skills come in handy when working with patrons. They also help when I am collaborating with my colleagues when making decisions about the collection and new services we want to provide to our patrons.”

Tell me about the Merrimack Public Library.

“Merrimack Public Library is a mid-sized public library located in New Hampshire. Directly we serve a population of just over 25,000 Merrimack residents, but serve many more as we are part of a twelve library consortium that includes public and academic libraries in the Greater Manchester area of New Hampshire.”

Along with the usual library offerings and New Hampshire local history. “There are a few really cool collections in the works that aren’t quite ready to circulate yet. These include kits for children and teens like Magformers, Snap Circuits, and Ozobots that our teens put together as part of their Summer Reading Program. We’ll also be circulating sandwich board signs to local groups, and are currently working with a local Girl Scout to set up a fun shape baking pan collection.

Starting soon we will be partnering with our local Meals on Wheels group to deliver homebound library services for those that cannot make it to the building.”

What are some of the main responsibilities in your current role? 

“Most of my main responsibilities revolve around cataloging and acquisitions. I do all of the original cataloging for the library. I work with the other Department Heads of the library to come up with practical circulating and material processing procedures. I am in charge of the collection development for our audiobook, CD, and DVD/Blu-Ray collections; which includes buying as well as withdrawing the items from the collection when necessary.”  

Tell me about libraries 10 years from now- what do they look like and what services do they offer?

“I think libraries will be very interesting places 10 years from now. I love how libraries are evolving from circulating only books to circulating all sorts of special collections. I think it speaks more to serving the library’s community and demonstrates that librarians are in touch with what the community wants and how it’s developing. I think public libraries are already on the way to doing this, but I believe it will be more developed in the future and libraries will look more like community centers.”

What advice would you give a recent MILS grad or current information professional looking to change careers?

“I think it is extremely important for MLIS recent grads, those considering an MLIS, and those looking to make the jump to switching careers into librarianship to realize that the job market is extremely saturated and competitive. I think graduates should also try to get an understanding of what is required to be in each position before they graduate so that they can start with the right foot forward. I wanted to be an academic librarian, but didn’t know that to be tenured I would need a secondary Master’s degree or Ph.D. I also believe you shouldn’t limit yourself. There are all sorts of different libraries out there–public and academic, but also law libraries, medical libraries and so many more.”

How do you stay current on new technology?

“Staying current takes a lot of work. There are journals to read, workshops/webinars to attend, and meetings to attend. One also needs to pay attention to what teachers are interested in so that libraries can follow those educational trends like programming. I try to keep an eye out for webinars that are relevant to my library’s strategic plan and mission and then see how those things could be implemented. Luckily, as part of the consortium my library is a part of there is a committee for technology so we can bounce ideas off each other and show each other the cool new things we’ve found or tried.”

Share technology that you can’t live or do your job without.

Along with OCLC Connexion, LC Authority Files and MARC Standards. ”On Facebook I follow the cataloging group Troublesome Catalogers and Magical Metadata Fairies for both professional posts and some humor. I use Amazon a lot for media purchases. One of my current favorites is the app Workflow on iOS. It lets you program your phone to automate some tasks. It comes with some preset ideas like sending your last photo to your Instagram account, but one of the Technology Librarians in my consortium wrote a program to have this app search our shared catalog from scanning the ISBN on the back of any book!”

Brittney also gives great advice for those frustrated information specialists looking for the right job: Get involved, stay current, and keep your mind open–you really never know when an opportunity will drop into your lap!”

Thanks to Brittney for kicking off the series and be sure to check out next month’s conversation with Rebecca McGuire, Tech Specialist at Mortenson Center for International Library Programs.

Where we live (Part 6) – A TTW Guest Post by Beth Harper

Tame the Web - Tue, 2017-10-03 09:00

Toodling around in the Denver Art Museum between lunch and work yesterday (I work 4-8pm on Thursdays) I realized – right now, I have time. To slow down, to pay attention, to explore. I always feel under such tremendous pressure to use my time well, and right now, this is using my time well – getting to know my new city, getting rested, spending my time on the bus and train getting caught up on all the reading I haven’t done in the last few years. Thinking and processing. Refilling the well. This is important. I’ll cycle back around to the part of my life where I don’t have time, where I’m working sixteen-hour days or traveling or writing like mad or full up on commitments and projects, and I want to have not wasted these days, I want to have this time to look back on and draw from.

– April 15, 2016

I feel like I am endlessly careening from one thing to the next. Due dates. Midterms. Finals. Deadlines. Programming cycles. Periodic reviews. Projects. The next book the next goal the next task the next thing – and then I am reminded (often, as now, as I’m approaching but not quite at the end of something big, and preparing in the back of my mind for the next whatever) that processing is part of the work

Reflection on one hand  – critical examination of the work or the content and our personal response to it, placing it within a larger theoretical context, unpacking and deconstructing – and creative practice on the other – doing something with the work or the content, being something more than a passive recipient or observer, integrating it into an ongoing practice, creating new knowledge, sharing, teaching – these are the tools of engagement.

Engagement is challenging. It doesn’t allow stagnation: what we engage with changes us, and a culture and practice of engagement is a culture and practice of constant adaptation, reexamination, and chaos.

An engaged, reflective practice is pragmatic. It deals in what is, in radical self-honesty, in embracing a willingness to make mistakes and learn from them, in looking at uncomfortable truths, in tearing down problematic, fossilized practices. It’s relational and contextual, and it deals in relationships and contexts as they are, not as we assume them to  be or wish they were; it doesn’t tolerate complacency or denial or presumption.

Pragmatism is – I cannot say this often enough, or emphasize it strongly enough – pragmatism is loving and compassionate. I’ve touched on this several times in this series in specific contexts:  talking about liminal spaces and low-engagement patrons, talking about grounding ambitious vision in situational reality. But there’s a broader narrative underlying those specific examples, and part of reflective practice is connecting and specific and complex realities to broader narratives, privileging personal lived experience over theory and continually interrogating and crafting theory to be more responsive to lived experience.

I think that people sometimes think of pragmatism as cold and unforgiving, but there’s profound compassion in saying, implicitly or explicitly, I see you. I’m not forcing my own worldview or viewpoints or expectations on youI am trying to understand, I am paying attention. It’s just as true when we say that to ourselves as when we say it to someone else.

There’s something unselfish about it, a quality of humility, a willingness to participate in a set of collective values, and thereby have a voice in continually interrogating and negotiating those values that is part of a community of peers. This kind of full-on, critique-grounded, self-reflective participation makes us better workers and better community members and in turn actually makes us more assertive and sure of ourselves and better at self-promotion and visibility. When the goal of sharing is not self-aggrandization or ego-boosting but contributing something of genuine value to a broader conversation, it feels unselfconscious and people respond positively to it.

And in so doing we raise up the conversation, and the work, and make connections, and engage with new ideas, and integrate them into our own practice, and nurture our own inquisitive nature, and explore and experiment and share and create, because being engaged makes us want to, and so we are immersed constantly in this flow that is tidal, in the sense of being both cyclic and back-and-forth, ebb and flow, transecting and occupying and navigating boundaries.

The essence of practice is that it’s ongoing, it’s immersive, it’s personal. Playing tourist is not practice. Punching the clock is not practice. (It’s quite possible to provide really fairly decent customer service without going deeper, and I have some colleagues I’m very fond of who do exactly this, but they’re not librarians.) Reading the professional literature dutifully and uncritically (come on, you knowlibrarians who do this, we all do) is not practice, going to a couple of conferences a year is not practice. We can be more than that.

This series has been a process of working through and laying out a personal manifesto, tying together some ideas I’ve been chewing on for many years, some that I’ve talked about at length in the past and some I’ve only come to an understanding of in the course of this reading and writing and interaction with my classmates, completely new concepts and approaches (some of which resonate deeply with what I already believe and some I found really challenging and difficult, and spent quite a bit of time grappling with), views and values that have evolved over the course and over my career and will of course continue to evolve because that is the point.

It sounds hard and scary. It is. It wouldn’t be so incredibly rewarding if it weren’t.

2017 Emerging Leaders Create LITA Virtual Engagement Toolkit

LITA Blog - Mon, 2017-10-02 11:59

Note: This post was written by Catie Sahadath, LITA’s 2017 Emerging Leader.

In August 2016 I filled in some forms, held my breath, and pressed send on an application to the ALA’s Emerging Leaders program. Admittedly, I was only sort of sure that I knew what I was getting myself into, but I have been emerging since the day I was born, so what could go wrong?

The Emerging Leaders program, in a nutshell, is an incubator where new and new-ish professionals can hone and develop skills that will allow them to serve effectively in leadership roles within the ALA. The program accomplishes this by getting the different ALA units to come up with ideas for projects that can be completed within the 6-month timeframe provided to participants. The units provide guidance and support in the form of humans to help us along, and in some cases units also opt to provide some sponsorship dollars to a participant working on a project.

Emerging Leaders are expected to attend ALA Midwinter, where they participate in a day of specialized programming, and where they meet their assigned project teams. They are expected to attend ALA Annual Conference as well, where they deliver a poster presentation on their project outcomes.

I must live under some golden star, because in October of last year I received word that I was selected for the program, with a $1000 sponsorship from LITA.

I would like to add a caveat to this. I am Canadian, and to receive a sponsorship for this amount in US dollars meant that I could not only afford to attend the ALA conferences, but I could afford to fly there on my own personal flying dragon.

The project team that I worked with consisted of extraordinary library humans from across the United States. The anticipated output of our project was to develop an online toolkit for virtual engagement. The target audience for the toolkit would be the chairs of LITA’s committees, interest groups, and round-tables. It would help them out with everything from getting team members involved, to picking softwares and platforms for running meetings, and interacting with LITA. The idea was that if the Toolkit was successful, it could be repurposed for the rest of the ALA as well. In all honesty, I found the idea of this rather daunting, but I think Snoop Dogg said it best: No pressure, no diamonds.

At our first meeting in January of 2017, our team realized just how much work this was going to be. We scheduled weekly meetings, and came up with a plan:

  • Take a deep breath
  • Make a survey to find out what committee chairs are doing, what they want, and what they need
  • Keep breathing
  • Make a list of popular online collaboration tools, evaluate and assess them
  • More breathing
  • Develop content for the toolkit based on the survey results
  • Inhale, exhale
  • Revise everything until our eyeballs go numb
  • Ohm
  • Design the final online product and post it to LITA Docs
  • Design a poster presentation
  • Write a report on our project
  • Travel to Chicago, eat a deep dish pizza
  • Deliver the poster presentation at ALA Annual
  • Dance under the beaming spotlight of sweet satisfaction

The project was so meta. We had formed a geographically distributed, virtual team under the auspices of LITA, in order to develop a toolkit for geographically distributed, virtual teams under the auspices of LITA. This gave us the opportunity to actually test out the tools and practices we were writing about in the toolkit. We felt this gave us the optimal amount of street cred for the task at hand. As many of you know, street cred is of paramount importance in any professional association.

So what about that toolkit? She is alive and well, and living in the comfort of the LITA Docs page. You can check her out at If you’re chairing a committee, or are interested in virtual engagement I encourage you to check it out!

Some of the key takeaways I got from the whole process included:

  • LITA is a wholly supportive organization, and I am quite fond of its members
  • From the survey results, the one thing that stands out to me is that people really hate e-mail chains
  • The ALA is a giant organization, and without the ELs program I would likely have been lost in the cracks
  • After having a little bit of time to refresh, I am ready to dive back in and get more involved with ALA

If you or someone you know is interested in the Emerging Leaders program, encourage them to apply! Do also encourage them to talk with Emerging Leaders program alumni to get a good idea of what to expect.

Finally, our team got a ton of help from Margaret Heller, Andromeda Yelton, Jenny Levine, and Mark Beatty. We owe them each a frosty cold one!

[Editor’s Note] LITA thanks the members of Team D for all of their great work on this project:
