Continuing Education

Thursday Afternoon Sessions

Citation management software: Advancing your expertise with freely available tools

No MLA CE credit

How familiar are you with citation management software? Are your users familiar with this time-saving resource? Here is an opportunity to learn something that will make the research process easier for everybody! This hands-on session will introduce Mendeley, free software that organizes and formats your references. Participants will learn how to save sources to one convenient location and access them via the cloud, create formatted citations and a reference section in seconds (really!), and understand the software options and features. We will discuss common problems that arise in using the software and some troubleshooting techniques. We will also look at what's on the horizon with the development of these tools. Participants will leave this session able to employ the primary functionalities of citation management software, share tips for power users, and assist their users with resolving the more commonly-experienced technical issues.

Kirstin Duffinis a research, engagement, and scholarship librarian and liaison to the sciences and math at Eastern Illinois University. She provides citation management training to undergraduate and graduate students across disciplines at EIU and uses both Mendeley and Zotero, depending on her current research project. She holds an MLIS from the University of Wisconsin at Madison and an MS in Biological Sciences from EIU. Outside libraries, Kirstin enjoys hiking the scenic hills of east central Illinois and playing cooperative board games with friends.

No MLA CE credit

Daniel Tracy is an Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois- Urbana Champaign Library and the Head of Scholarly Communication and Publishing

Friday Morning Sessions

Making Your Library Positively Accessible

Your library may be Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) - compliant, yet your environment and resources might not be accessible! In this course, you will explore the new functional diversity model and other concepts of disability; examine the accessibility of your library; learn practical ways to make your library, programs, and website more accessible; and build your skills in assisting people with disabilities in a positive way. You will leave with an accessibility plan for your library and new skills in problem-solving accessibility concerns.

JJ Pionke is the Applied Health Sciences Librarian at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His work revolves around disabilities and libraries as well as veterans in libraries. He is particularly passionate about increasing the accessibility of libraries for both patrons and employees. He sits on multiple local, regional, and national committees that focus on diversity where he is the voice of people with disabilities as scholar, advocate, and as a person with disabilities himself.

Teaching Critical Appraisal to Students in the Health Sciences

This session will address strategies, tools, and best practices for teaching critical appraisal to students in the health sciences. Participants in this session will leave with a teaching toolkit that they can scale to their students' needs and abilities, as well as resources to fill in any knowledge gaps when it comes to interpreting methodologies, relevant statistical measures, and study outcomes. Upon completion of the session, attendees will:

  • Understand what learning outcomes for students in a critical appraisal class are and why they matter
  • Work from a framework for teaching critical appraisal concepts to students
  • Identify their own knowledge gaps when it comes to critical appraisal
  • Locate and use resources to help close these knowledge gaps
Attendees are asked to bring laptops / tablets to the session

Laura Menard is the Assistant Director for Medical Education and Access Services at Ruth Lilly Medical Library, Indiana University.
