Geek Out, Don’t Freak Out: How to Chill Out and Learn to Love Assessment 2/27/2019

Presented by

Colleen Sanders of Clackamas Community College

Meredith Farkas of Portland Community College

About

Assessment is such a valuable tool to help learn more about our patrons, demonstrate the value of what we do, and improve our teaching. So why is it so difficult to build an assessment culture in library instruction programs? Often, resistance to and anxiety about assessment come from common causes that have been both discussed in the literature and illustrated in our own experiences. Meredith and Colleen will talk about their experiences working with nascent assessment programs at their libraries, the projects they’ve worked on, and what they’ve learned from trial and sometimes error. They will discuss ways that librarians can move past resistance and anxiety to reap the benefits of an assessment culture.

Critical Library Management 1/11/2019

Presented by

Candise Branum, Director of Library Services at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine

Molly Gunderson, Access Services Manager at Portland State University

About

Oregon libraries work to meet the information needs of our communities, a mission that is dependent on teamwork. Library managers are tasked with leading, supporting and developing the teams that serve our communities. Social justice and critical theory are frameworks that are often discussed within library practice, but are only starting to be applied to library management practice. The more we discuss social justice, the more apparent it is that inclusion and equity are essential aspects of library management. The goal is for audience members to think critically about their own management practice and consider ways of improving equity and in their own organizations.
