Kyle at #OpenEd16, or: why WFU should care about Open Education

Fri, 23 Dec 2016 16:43:24 +0000

I’ve been inspired for a long time by the work being done in the Open Education community. For the uninitiated, “Open Education” is an umbrella term that applies the principles of openness (think open access scholarship, open source software, etc.) to learning materials specifically and pedagogy and institutional practices more broadly. If you’ve heard of […]

Thomas @ LITA Forum

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 16:14:16 +0000

I attended the LITA Forum November 17-20, held in Fort Worth, Texas. As past president, I also served on the planning committee for this meeting (and I now have abiding respect for anyone who has to find, select, and haggle with conference venues). Coming just a week and a half after the election, there were […]

Tim at NCICU

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 18:41:07 +0000

My last library trip of the year was to attend the North Carolina Independent Colleges & Universities (NCICU) Library Directors meeting at High Point University on Dec. 16th. I had not been to HPU since I was in high school and was amazed by all of the growth and new buildings. Even more amazing (and […]

Tim at CNI

Mon, 19 Dec 2016 15:39:12 +0000

I attended the Coalition of Networked Information (CNI) meeting in Washington, D.C. on December 12 and 13.  This trip offered a novel experience — my hotel caught fire early on Tuesday morning and we were evacuated at 4:30 am. Eight fire trucks later, the small laundry fire was put out and we were allowed to […]

Tim at ASERL

Mon, 19 Dec 2016 14:41:43 +0000

The period of December 8th through the 16th represents one of the busiest times in my 17 month Wake Forest career. During that span I attended three of our member organization meetings, held three ZSR donor events, and meet with our architects. I’m looking forward to the holiday break! The first of these meetings was […]

Preservation Enclosures Workshop

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 13:19:43 +0000

I was fortunate to attend a workshop called: Enclosures for Preservation and Beyond at The North Bennett Street School in Boston, December 3-4. The first thing I discovered was that the school had moved three years ago, from the original location (on North Bennett Street) to a nearby location on North Street. This provided the […]

Sarah at the NIH Bibliometrics and Research Assessment Symposium

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 18:08:13 +0000

This fall, I attended the Bibliometrics & Research Assessment Symposium for Librarians and Information Professionals. Over 150 librarians and information professionals attended the 2-day symposium at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus in Bethesda, Maryland. Ludo Waltman was the first keynote speaker from the Centre for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS)  of Leiden University in the […]

On November 30th, we welcomed the 2016-17 cohort of ZSR Ambassadors. We have 16 full time members and two “consulting seniors,” who love ZSR so much they wanted to spend their last semester of college contributing to the library. You can read the ambassador bios to learn more about our group. We look forward to […]

Ellen at Charleston Conference 2016

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 18:46:03 +0000

The Charleston Conference 2016 At the Charleston Conference I tend to seek out sessions that focus on liaison- or user-related issues, but a dominating topic of recent years–user preference for print or electronic books—seems to be moving out of the spotlight, and so I was able to turn to presentations dealing with collections and scholarship […]

Carol at Charleston Conference 2016

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 16:05:10 +0000

I had a great time in Charleston this year, including a dinner with Derrik (he says “Hi” to everyone). I also had to choose between attending Alice’s presentation or my husband’s presentation at the same time slot. I picked Alice, and she did a great job! Zepheira was promoted as a service that uses BIBFRAME […]
