Owens Library to host national Brick and Click library symposium
The focus on supporting on-ground and online student learning continues Friday, Oct. 26, at the 12th annual Brick and Click national academic library symposium, hosted by Northwest Missouri State University’s B. D. Owens Library in the J.W. Jones Student Union.
Given the rapid transformation of academic libraries, Owens Library’s Brick and Click symposium provides an essential forum for professional development and networking. Academic librarians from across the nation attend the highly-regarded symposium for sessions that explore cutting-edge technologies, practical solutions, and timely content. All proposals for presentations are peer-reviewed.
Presentation topics include management of e-resources; mobile technology development; library marketing, promotion and branding; patron-driven acquisitions; teaching critical thinking; creating visual reports using Google Tools; creating a low cost Interlibrary Loan management system; improving services and streamlining workflow; and evaluating and acquiring streaming video.
Carolyn Johnson, information librarian at Owens Library, will present a concurrent session on “Librarian-Faculty Collaboration for Student Learning,” highlighting strategies for faculty-librarian teaching partnerships, research instruction embedded within eCompanion, and excellent support provided by the Center for Information Technology in Education (CITE) office.
