Title: Emerging Technologies and Digital Scholarship Librarian
 
Queens College, CUNY
 
FACULTY VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT
 
Queens College Benjamin Rosenthal Library seeks a collaborative, motivated, and service-oriented Emerging Technology and Digital Scholarship Librarian to join its team of faculty librarians in May 2018.
 
The Emerging Technology and Digital Scholarship Librarian (ETDS), a new position, will work to develop a center for innovation and program of digital pedagogy in the Queens College Libraries. This space was developed through an educational technology grant and is the result of collaboration among the Queens College Libraries, the Graduate School of Library Science, and the Center for Teaching and Learning.
 
We seek a creative, collaborative librarian who can take the lead in the development of these new initiatives. The ETDS librarian will work collaboratively to support the development of the new initiatives to create high-impact learning spaces within the library that make use of new technology and digital pedagogies. In addition to leading relevant digital initiatives in the library, the ETDS librarian will support the digital initiatives already underway in disciplines such as sociology, English, and mathematics.
 
As part of the Reference and Instruction Team, the ETDS Librarian will identify, develop, implement, and assess new technology that supports the digital scholarship of Queens College faculty and students. The successful candidate will assess the need for technology-based spaces within the library; manage relevant digital projects; develop grant proposals; provide training in digital tools both within the library and across campus; stay current with new trends in digital scholarship and educational technology; develop digital pedagogies; select and/or develop tools and instructional materials according to student needs; and participate in the college’s open access and publishing activities. The ETDS librarian will actively seek out partnerships with faculty and students engaged in digital scholarship as well as offices across campus including the Center for Teaching and Learning.
 
As a member of the Queens College Library Faculty, this position will participate in the library’s instruction program, providing course-integrated instruction as well as working with students in less-formal learning spaces. The librarian in this position will also provide reference assistance in person and online, and participate in professional and service activities that enhance the QC library’s mission. The librarian in this position will also serve as a subject liaison as needed.
 
The successful candidate will participate in professional and service activities that enhance QC’s strategic goals and the Library’s mission. A second graduate degree is required for initial appointment to the tenure track position of Assistant Professor, whose responsibilities also include scholarly achievement. If appointed as Instructor, which is a non-tenure track title, the candidate must complete a second graduate degree within 5 years to be eligible for the tenure track as an Assistant Professor.
 
The successful candidate will be flexible, collaborative, and capable of assessing and adapting to the changing needs of the QC community and the library.

Online Doc RSS Virtual Reference Services Committee Meeting Minutes (10/27/17)

by Karen Reiman-Sendi on Fri, Feb 16, 2018 at 03:01 pm

Meeting date: 10/27/17

Present: Karen Reiman-Sendi (chair), Judith Emde, Whitney Vitale, Rachel Minkin, Laura Friesen, Rhonda Marker 

Absent: Marissa Ball, Rosalind Fielder-Giscombe, Sara Metz, Marissa Ellermann

Agenda:

1. Introductions

2. Announcements

Meeting date: 10/27/17

Present: Karen Reiman-Sendi (chair), Judith Emde, Whitney Vitale, Rachel Minkin, Laura Friesen, Rhonda Marker 

Absent: Marissa Ball, Rosalind Fielder-Giscombe, Sara Metz, Marissa Ellermann

Agenda:

1. Introductions

2. Announcements

  • Committee charge was updated on the committee web page on 10/2.  Now reads: "To provide timely information resources and programming related to the creation, management, improvement, and other aspects of virtual reference services."
  • The solution to the problem of multiple versions of the Guidelines was delayed because RUSA webmaster had to get involved.
  • Karen asked RSS Chair Rebecca Jackson about what to do with our goals and if RSS Board wanted to approve. Karen just heard back from Chair this week; Karen will be posting our goals in ALA Connect after this meeting.
  • Reminder about 2017-2018 goals:
    • Review existing content for possible gaps, and add new content in ALA Connect throughout the year.
    • In light of the committee's organizational restructuring, and improvements in the ALA Connect platform, review committee web page for appropriate and improved content, including eliminating out-dated information; request major edits by the end of December 2017.
    • Determine future disposition, content, and maintenance schedule (if needed) of the Virtual Reference Companion. Solicit data and feedback from stakeholders as part of the disposition discussion by May 2018. Request minimal updates immediately (for example, fix broken links) by end of January 2018.
    • Plan and facilitate a discussion to be held at Annual 2018.
  • Need committee report for RSS Review (pre-midwinter edition). Any ideas about what we want to share more broadly?
      • This is a call for committee reports for the next issue of the RSS Review. Please share any activities or programs you are working on in your respective committees. You may also share information about meetings or programs that are upcoming during ALA Midwinter in Denver (or virtually!). This edition of the RSS Review is the Pre-Midwinter Edition." We discussed some points to include in the report, including that we’re transitioning from a co-ETS and RSS group to just an RSS section committee. The group asked Karen to craft a report, without the need to review prior to submission.

3. Committee web page discussion:  What are our expectations/intentions for committee web page? What is our process and timeline for drafting/discussing online?

  • Expectations: what is the activity of this committee, include reports or documentation; rosters. Is the page for us or for members? Is it advertising? What’s the difference between the public web page and ALA Connect? Must show currency, active-ness. Out-of-date stuff should be “archived.” The RSS Communications Committee is looking at committee web page content now and figuring out how to help RSS committees with communication. How easy will it be for us to update web page content? This will be a concern and will determine how frequently we engage with content as a committee.
    • Must have content:
      • Roster, contact information
      • Committee charge
      • Notes or minutes (links to ALA Connect?)
      • Links to products of committee (Guidelines, VCR, information resources)
    • Nice to have content:
      • Short reports?
      • News? (like upcoming program announcements, highlights of sections in Guidelines, call attention to good articles/happenings in the world of VR)
    • Content that should be removed:
      • Anything outdated!
  • What is our process and timeline?
    • Karen will check with Jason as to how we can get changes on our web page (what is his process. Laura and Karen will draft a document of changes for all committee members to react to (likely November/December). 

4.  Rough schedule for future meetings

  • Avoid 2/1/18 through 2/22/18
  • Karen will find dates in January, March, May and June with a forthcoming Doodle poll.

Respectfully submitted, 

Karen Reiman-Sendi

Online Doc RSS Virtual Reference Services Committee Meeting Minutes (9/29/17)

by Karen Reiman-Sendi on Fri, Feb 16, 2018 at 03:00 pm

Meeting date: 9/29/17

Present: Karen Reiman-Sendi (chair), Judith Emde, Whitney Vitale, Marissa Ellermann, Laura Friesen, Rhonda Marker 

Absent: Marissa Ball, Rosalind Fielder-Giscombe, Sara Metz, Rachel Minkin

 Agenda:

1. Introductions

2. Announcements/updates

Meeting date: 9/29/17

Present: Karen Reiman-Sendi (chair), Judith Emde, Whitney Vitale, Marissa Ellermann, Laura Friesen, Rhonda Marker 

Absent: Marissa Ball, Rosalind Fielder-Giscombe, Sara Metz, Rachel Minkin

 Agenda:

1. Introductions

2. Announcements/updates

    • We won’t meet face-to-face at Midwinter 2018. We will however meet online in January.
    • Despite launch delays, ALA Connect training will still be available - see http://www.ala.org/support/schedule-training for schedule. Karen recommends that we try to a “attend” remote training session
    • The committee charge was revised and approved earlier this year (even though the committee web page doesn’t reflect these revisions yet!). Our charge: "To provide timely information resources and programming related to the creation, management, improvement, and other aspects of virtual reference services."
    • Karen asked for web site corrections to be put in place, including the updated charge and links to updated “Guidelines for Implementing and Maintaining Virtual Reference Services.” Laura is on the RSS Communications committee and will also reach out to Jason Dupree (web editor) about these changes.

    3. Discussion of committee goals. Karen noted that the RSS Board asked that committee have goals posted in ALA Connect soon, and that the committees revisit those goals throughout the year. Karen came up with some goals for the group to consider, specifically:

      • update the content on our committee page: This was a direct request from RSS Board: “Add accomplishments to committee pages; Eliminate out-dated information, past projects, old information.”
      • review, update, enter/record, etc. content in ALA Connect, as needed (also a direct request from the RSS Board)
      • deliver a discussion group meeting at Annual 2018: While this wasn’t requested from the RSS Board, it will be two years or more since the group sponsored a discussion. The committee discussed some topic ideas.
      • discuss/decide on future of Virtual Reference Companion: Karen and Laura gave a brief background on this resource, as they served on the “tutorial subcommittee.” The content hasn’t been updated in over a year. If we believe this is a useful resource, we need to scope the work on this, because the project could be huge, in terms of updating/modifying. We believe we should review statistics on hits/visits (last year in particular), to get a better sense of the value of the content. 

    The committee's next meeting will focus on the committee's web page.

    Absent:  Marissa Ball, Rosalind Fielder-Giscombe, Sara Metz, Marissa Ellermann

    Agenda:

    1. Introductions 

    2. Updates/announcements

    Midwinter Meeting Date: 1/12/18

    Present: Karen Reiman-Sendi (chair), Whitney Vitale, Rachel Minkin, Laura Friesen, Judith Emde, Rhonda Marker

    Absent:  Marissa Ball, Rosalind Fielder-Giscombe, Sara Metz, Marissa Ellermann

    Agenda:

    1. Introductions 

    2. Updates/announcements

      • Reminder: committee not meeting in Denver (Midwinter) as this online meeting is our “MIdwinter” meeting

      • RSS Board is not meeting in Denver (Midwinter) but will be meeting virtually in the coming 2-3 weeks (meeting not scheduled yet)

      • ALA Connect migration/update has been delayed. See RUSA Update for details. Should probably sign up/attend demos of new platform.

      • ETS is holding an eforum, Implementing, Maintaining and Evaluating Virtual Reference Services, on 1/18 and 1/19, via the ETS-L listserv. Topic: Join us for an engaging and informative discussion on the implementation, maintenance, and evaluation of virtual reference.  Karen will reach out to ETS chair about this eforum, to learn about the “why” behind this discussion, in case there is some useful information that could inform our group’s work. Hopefully some of us can participate in the online discussion, too.

      3. Quick review of committee goals (found in ALA Connect), but specifically:

        • Review existing content for possible gaps, and add new content in ALA Connect throughout the year. (Ongoing)
        • In light of the committee's organizational restructuring, and improvements in the ALA Connect platform, review committee web page for appropriate and improved content, including eliminating out-dated information; request major edits by the end of December 2017. (Almost done.)
        • Determine future disposition, content, and maintenance schedule (if needed) of the Virtual Reference Companion. Solicit data and feedback from stakeholders as part of the disposition discussion by May 2018. Request minimal updates immediately (for example, fix broken links) by end of January 2018. (Next priority.)
        • Plan and facilitate a discussion to be held at Annual 2018. (On hold.)

        4. Update on committee web page changes/edits

          5. Planning remaining committee work for next 5-6 months (Virtual Reference Companion, planning discussion group at Annual 2018)

            • Discussion at Annual 2018
              • Per Cynthia Johnson, our section scheduler: committees aren't guaranteed a discussion group slot at Annual due to a change in scheduling at ALA & RUSA level. To avoid duplication and conflicts, each section will have a designated time and space for one all committee meeting and one discussion group. 
              • How should we proceed? Plan on a discussion at Annual just in case? Plan a virtual discussion? Don’t bother with any planning and implementing? The committee expressed frustration at this ALA decision, and we brainstormed some other methods to engage our colleagues. 
              • VRC discussion
                • Decision needed: Keep it? Needs updating. Needs a small group to tackle the process. Dump it? Karen adds this into her request to RSS webmaster to modify web pages. 

                •  

                  We decided to focus our efforts on the VRC to help us make the decision to keep this content or to remove the content. If we decide to keep the content, we’ll then have to implement a process to update/revise the content before our appointments end this year.

              6. Other business?

                • Reminider that scheduled meetings until Annual 2018: 3/9/18, 5/11/18, 6/11/18

                • We will meet at Annual, likely around the VRC.

                7. Next steps

                  • Karen will share requested committee web page edits with RSS webmaster next week.

                  • Laura will ask webmaster about Google Analytics on VRC.

                  • Who are the stakeholders for the VRC? We want to develop survey for VRC, asking some portion of RSS (maybe RUSA) membership about the value of this content. Rachel and Judith will develop some questions within a survey tool. Goal is to distribute said survey by end of February. They will ask our committee members for comments and feedback via email. With the results, in combination with any Google Analytics data, we can make a decision on future of content, hopefully at our March 2018 meeting.

                  • Karen will notify RSS board that we intend to survey membership about VRC, and ask about any preferences or recommendations for reaching out to RUSA.

                  Respectfully submitted,

                  Karen Reiman-Sendi
