Continuing Education

Thursday Morning Concurrent Sessions

Emerging Technologies for The Busy Librarian

This face-to-face course is designed to give the busy librarian an overview of emerged and emerging technologies impacting our profession. It is a survey course that will cover a variety of technology topics. Topics discussed will be updated until the month prior to the teaching of course but could include: makerspaces, augmented reality, wearable technology, fitness apps, the Internet of Things, library mobile apps, privacy, ambient intelligence, virtual reality, and collaboration tools. Students, health professionals, and consumers use technologies to interact with health information daily. It is essential for librarians to investigate and experiment with these technologies to improve access to timely and relevant quality health information.

Educational Objectives:

At the end of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify and discuss emerged and emerging technologies with potential to impact our profession
  • Review technology trends with an emphasis how to keep up to date
  • Discuss mobile apps popular in library environments Identify technologies that can be employed in a hospital library or other potentially restrictive networks
  • Review privacy issues within a digital ecosystem
  • Apply case studies and recommendations for supporting emerged and emerging technologies at home institution

Gabe Rios is the director of the Ruth Lilly Medical Library, Indiana University School of Medicine. Gabe has worked with emerging technologies since the late 90s (remember the PDA?).  He has taught technology-related classes at state, regional, and national meetings over the past 16 years. Gabe has also served as a member of national and local technology groups for the Medical Library Association as well as community-based groups. Gabe is a devoted user of technology and has a keen interest in technology trends and their impact on health and medicine. In his role as library director, Gabe continues his support of emerging technologies by facilitating the use of technology to meet users where they are.


Introduction to Systematic Reviews for Librarians

This course will present what the current state of systematic reviews methods is, how systematic reviews are different from other types of reviews, and what their potential applications are. Activities and discussions will cover how to conduct a reference interview, determine feasibility of a research question, build search strategies, and report methods specific to systematic reviews.

Susan A. Fowler, MLIS, is the Library Director at Washington University (in St. Louis) Brown School: Social Work and Public Health. Her current interests include creating reporting standards for systematic review search strategies and finding a pragmatic solution for search strategy peer review. Susan designed the first library-based systematic review service at Washington University, trained librarian colleagues in systematic review search design, and integrated the library service into the Institute of Public Health’s Systematic Review and Meta-analyses yearly course.

Providing Ethical Services in Changing Times

Librarians and other information professionals have long relied on codes of ethics and other guidelines for providing ethical services to all.   In a time of rapid political, social, and technological change, do these codes still make sense?  How should they be interpreted during a time of radical change?  Is it time to update them?  

Emily Knox is an assistant professor in the School of Information Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her research interests include information access, intellectual freedom and censorship, information ethics, information policy, and the intersection of print culture and reading practices. She is also a member of the Mapping Information Access research team.
Emily recently edited Trigger Warnings: History, Theory Context, published by Rowman & Littlefield. Emily’s book, Book Banning in 21st Century America, was also published by Rowman & Littlefield and is the first monograph in the Beta Phi Mu Scholars’ Series.
Emily received her Ph.D. from the doctoral program at the Rutgers University School of Communication & Information. Her master’s in library and information science is from the iSchool at Illinois. She also holds a B.A. in Religious Studies from Smith College and an A.M. in the same field from The University of Chicago Divinity School.
Emily serves on the boards of the Association for Information Science & Technology,Freedom to Read Foundation and the National Coalition Against Censorship.

 

Nancy's Reception

Is it Science or Magic?

In this event, we will probe some chemical and biochemical experiments that can have the perception of Ďmagicí but can be explained using our experience and knowledge of the materials used. I will do some demonstrations of physical and chemical properties of common materials (often obtained from stores) as well as materials from biological sources. For example, what do bakerís yeast and potassium iodine have in common? How can we measure the amount of vitamin C in oranges? We will do a few hands on experiments because science is not a spectator sport.

Marge Jones is a professor of chemistry at Illinois State University. She has 111 publications and 3 book chapters with the most recent entitled ďAntioxidant capacity, immune response, anti-inflammatory activity, and potential pharmaceutical applications of by-productsĒ in Handbook of Coffee Processing By-products: Sustainable Applications. Professor Jones's lab studies the parasitic protozoan, Leishmania, which leads to diseases in over 80 countries worldwide. The lab works to better understand the biochemistry of these parasites and is testing unique molecules that can be used as new therapeutic directions.

HSLI 2017 Conference Sessions for the Afternoon of Thursday, October 26

October 23rd, 2017 by

If you are planning to attend the Health Science Librarians of Illinois Annual Conference in Bloomington this week, remember that two sessions will take place the afternoon of Thursday, October 26. More information is below.

From 1:00 to 2:45 PM, first watch a recording of the National Library of Medicine’s webinar “Infographics: Communicating Information Visually” (the recording will last one hour), and then participate in a live discussion.¬†The presenter in the recording is Rose Turner, Research & Instruction Librarian, University of Pittsburgh Health Sciences Library System. In the webinar, learn to make your raw data more appealing and consumable with infographics. You will discover what infographics are and how they can make data easier to understand and share. Finally, Ms. Turner will wrap up by demonstrating an online resource (Piktochart), so you’ll be ready to create your own infographics. (A photo of Ms. Turner is below.)

Rose Turner's picture

Sarah Isaacs from the Illinois Early Intervention Clearinghouse will facilitate a discussion of infographics after the webinar viewing. This course does not carry CE credit from the Medical Library Association.

From 3:00 to 5:00 PM, Merinda Kaye Hensley,¬†Associate Professor and Digital Scholarship Liaison and Instruction Librarian at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will give the presentation “Designing Instructional Materials”.¬†¬†With the approval of the ACRL Framework, everyone is talking about learning theory. This session will be practical and hands-on, breaking down the instructional design process in order to apply our understanding for how people learn, and also how to prove it (or not!).

 

Merinda Kaye Hensley's picture

Hensley is part of the team in the Scholarly Commons, a digital scholarship center that serves the emerging research and technology needs of scholars in data services, digital humanities, digitization, and scholarly communication. She teaches, coordinates and provides leadership for the Savvy Researcher, an open workshop series addressing advanced research and information management needs of graduate students and faculty. Hensley has taught for the School of Information Sciences at Illinois, LIS 590AE: Information Literacy and Instruction and Practice. She is active in ACRL, currently serving as Vice Chair of the Instruction Section. Hensley presents nationally and internationally on her research, incorporating scholarly communication into information literacy instruction and improving teaching skills of new librarians.

This course will not be worth MLA CE credit, but participants can add it as an “External Training” to their transcript for the new Medlib-Ed portal if they choose.¬† Therefore, it will still be part of their record and will count toward AHIP.
