yes, it’s all about the acronyms in library land!

First, an international conference will spend part of its time at the ISU Library:

July 14: The 8th International Conference on Historical Lexicography and Lexicology (ICHLL), held at IU-Bloomington July 12 – 15, 2016 will include a trip to the ISU Library! Arriving by bus, attendees will have a chance to visit Special Collections, highlighting the Warren N. and Suzanne B. Cordell Collection of Dictionaries. Conference sessions, lunch and an end-of-the-day reception will be offered. ICHLL is held every two years and was previously in Gargnano del Gardo, Italy; Leiden, The Netherlands; Edmonton, Canada; Oxford, UK; Jena, Germany; and Gran Canaria, Spain. ISU’s Office of the President and The Warren N. & Suzanne B. Cordell Collection are helping sponsor the conference.

Wednesday, July 20: Academic Libraries of Indiana’s INFORMATION LITERACY UNCONFERENCE

Sally Neal, Associate Dean for Instruction & User Services at Butler University Libraries is Chair of ALI’s Information Literacy Committee informs us that, as of this posting, registration is still open for this FREE conference (includes breakfast, hot lunch, snacks).

Time: 8:45am – 3:30pm (Opening Session begins at 9:30)

from the Conference website:

How does your institution partner with other campus departments, units, and disciplines in teaching information literacy?  In addition to the traditional partnering we do with faculty and discipline departments and programs, we want to know how you are partnering with writing centers, learning resource centers, career services, student affairs, greek life, health & wellness, programs, diversity programs & services, campus publishing initiatives (undergraduate journals and manuscript publications), and teaching and learning centers. Partnering with curricular development committees and administrative units can also be discussed concerning developing programmatic information literacy.  The goal is to highlight how “two or three can be better than one” when it comes to teaching the concepts of information literacy.

Via the unconference model, attendees will identify the topics to be discussed through the day and work together to share examples and discuss options.

UnConference Planning Commitee members are:

  • Sally Neal, Instruction & User Services Associate Dean, Butler Universitty
  • Brian Bunnett, Chair of Public Services, Indiana State University
  • Lisa Jarrell, Head of Educational Technology and Resources Collection, Ball State University
  • Michael Flierl, Assistant Professor of Library Science and Learning Design Specialist, Purdue University
