Latest From All Groups
I am seeking to establish a Roundtable Discussion for ACRL 2017 on the topic "Curriculum Consultation: Librarian and Faculty". I wish to explore the active role of the academic librarian engaged in consultation with faculty members throughout the processes of curriculum/programme/course planning, development, design, delivery and review.
I would like a few of us to share our experiences working with faculty members, or, seeking to build relationships with faculty members so as to be able to participate more fully in curriculum planning, development, delivery and review.
This role of consultation, places the librarian at the heart of the academic agenda, actively participating in knowledge creation.
Eager to hear your comments and interest in this Roundtable Discussion for ACRL 2017.
NB. Deadline for proposal submission is October 14, 2016.
29/9/2016 - Of course the title is subject to change. Maybe "Unite & Work: Librarian & Faculty"

Dear ALA Community,
A resolution about the subject of gun violence was passed at the Membership Meeting at ALA Orlando 2016. In accordance with ALA procedures, when the resolution came to ALA Council, they directed the Committee on Legislation and the Intellectual Freedom Committee to establish a working group to continue to work on the resolution.
We are inviting all ALA members to provide the working group with feedback on a discussion draft of the resolution. This document is attached. It is by no means final and the working group will consider comments as they continue their work.
You can comment on this ALA Connect post to share your feedback. Or if you wish to share your feedback anonymously, please visit this form: https://goo.gl/forms/M90eDWOr1fAo4m9p2
Please comment or fill out the form by 10/21.

ALCTS webinar: Putting the Link in Linked Data
Part 1 of a 5 part Webinar Series: From MARC to Linked data
Date: Wednesday, October 19, 2016
All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.
Session 1 in the series, “ om MARC to BIBFRAME” will focus on the concept of the URI/IRI (uniform resource identifier / internationalized resource identifier) as the core of the linked data / semantic web operations. This session will focus both on the conceptual aspect of URI linking and also on the workflow and functional implications of moving from traditional authority control to URI based authority control.
Additional sessions in this series include:
Upon completion of this session, attendees will understand:
* The importance of moving from text strings to URIs to link entities and resources.
* The difference between traditional authority control and URI-based entity management.
* Some implications for workflows in the URI-based cataloging environment.
Who should attend? Technical service librarians and staff and library administrators
*This is an intermediate course intended for those with a basic understanding of bibliographic records and linked data.
Nancy Lorimer is Head of the Metadata Department at Stanford University, where she oversees metadata creation and participates in linked data projects and planning. A core participant in both the Linked Data for Production and the Linked Data for Libraries--Labs Mellon-funded grant projects, Nancy is also a consultant to the PCC Task Group on URIs in MARC. Nancy holds an MLIS from Western University, and a MMus from the University of Edinburgh.
