Essential Twitter Chats for the Library Crowd

I recently received an email directing me to the article 20 Essential Twitter Chats for the Library Crowd and thought I’d share it with all of you.  What do you think of the list?  Are there any you’d add? Remove?

What about Twitter accounts for specific areas of librarianship? Essential to all librarians?

I’d like to hear your thoughts!

I’ve created a handful of lists on my Twitter account that highlight my favorite and are categorized into specific areas/topics within our profession.  If you’re interested, check them out at @laureltarulli

The Organization of Information: Pondering the Preparation of a Syllabus

As I work on my very first course syllabus for the Fall term at Dalhousie, I find myself reminiscing about my own time in library school and how I felt about the courses I took.  Were they useful? Practical? Was I given enough hands-on work or discussions? What courses did I like? Dislike?  Why?

The first class I’ll be teaching is the Organization of Information.  And here I am, paging through my old notes and text (yes, I kept them!) to remind myself of what I learned and what I found useful/interesting.  As one of those truly *nerdy* students, I took an abundance of notes for each course, writing more on topics that interested me and making side comments on theories and topics I didn’t understand or speakers that I found dull.  I also, ahem, color coded each week in my binders so that they would all correspond….talk about the organization of information

I do remember enjoying courses where a lot of discussion occurred and the class style was laid back.  I don’t like the feeling that you can hear crickets in the room as the instructor asks a question.  It either means everyone has zoned out, they don’t understand what’s being discussed or they’re bored and can’t wait for class to be done.  Hopefully, I can find a balance between instructing and providing the information they need, with common sense applications and enough interest to keep the conversation flowing with the class.

As with all new instructors, I hope to put a little of myself and my own interests into this class, while maintaining the core structure and content that the students will need as a foundation for future classes.

So as I sit at my computer and work through the course schedule, week by week, I find myself wondering, how can I make this class interesting to newcomers?  What will spark an interest and provide them with enough curiosity to ask questions? And I wonder, what do many of you feel about the courses you took?  What differentiated an enjoyable course from a “so so I never want to attend that class again” course?

Deep Breath: Change is Good, Right?

Change is a natural part of life, and careers.  As you have been able to tell by the spotty and infrequent posting on The Cataloguing Librarian this past year, something must be up, right?  I mean, besides now having a one year old (picture included for those of you just *dying* to see her).

In March, I turned in my resignation at Halifax Public Libraries. It was a very difficult decision but I believe it is the right choice for me and for what I want to accomplish professionally.  It came down to how much or little I want to participate in the profession and my answer was “A LOT!!”.  In fact, participating and hopefully contributing ideas to our profession is extremely important and I want to make a difference.  Not just on a local level, but on a larger scale.  Trying to balance home  life (the desire to be the one to raise my daughter) with a full-time job as a librarian would not allow me to write, blog, speak at conferences or do any consulting;  at least, not for quite a few years.  So, I took a deep breath and made the decision.  And I’m excited!

First, I want to state that The Cataloguing Librarian blog will continue.  I just wanted to put that out there so that those of you who don’t finish reading the post beyond this point will know that I will begin to post again.

In addition to my continued interest in all things cataloguing, I’m finding that my focus in social catalogues and social technology has led me quite naturally to the area of readers’ services.  Barry Trott, as the new editor of RUSQ, was kind enough to offer me the position of column editor for the RA column in RUSQ – which I accepted eagerly before he could withdraw the offer!  So, for the next three years (and maybe longer?), I’m the column editor for that exciting column.  And, that means I may be approaching some of you to contribute your thoughts as guest writers for that column.

My first book, The Library Catalogue as Social Space was published this past winter.  And, I’m currently working on a second book that’s due to the publisher this Fall that focuses on the education and skills of cataloguers – new and “seasoned” professionals.  In particular, how social software and technology may impact the profession and what it will look like in the future.

I’ll also be teaching at Dalhousie University’s School of Information Management.  Right now,  it’s been confirmed that I’ll be teaching the Organization of Information course this Fall.  Hopefully I’ll be able to teach another one this Winter.

And, of course, I’m going to continue my consulting and contribution to NoveList in whatever capacity they offer.  As all of you know, I’m a strong supporter of NoveList and the innovative ideas they implement to connect readers to book, enhancing the experience and success of readers’ advisory in public libraries.

So, while I’m not working full-time at a public library, I am still active in the profession and eager to write, teach, share and present on an ongoing basis.

I hope many of you will continue to contact me to discuss ideas and opportunities, as well as to share your experiences and ask questions.  The Cataloguing Librarian blog will continue to explore cataloguing issues, management and profession conduct topics and readers’ services in an online environment.  It is my hope that you will continue to read the blog and provide feedback, as you have done in the past.

So, you should now start seeing more posts on this blog – which means I need to focus and get writing!

Professional “Thank You” Not Required?

Quite often I receive emails from students in MLIS programs asking for advice. This can be as simple as help with a paper, a cataloguing question or long-term career advice. Sometimes these emails also involve in-depth questions regarding the future of cataloguing, areas of the profession that are growing, my professional opinion on certain topics or participation in studies, research or interviews.

Receiving these emails on an almost monthly basis, I continue to take the time to answer them, thoughtfully providing responses, direction, opinions or, when I have no answers, other resources or individuals that I believe will be helpful. However, what always stands out when helping these individuals is that I rarely, if ever, receive a “Thank You”. It’s easy to send an email. Easier than picking up the telephone or writing a letter. While I am not so long in the tooth, I had it drilled into me from an early age that a simple Thank You letter goes a long way. And, to me, it does. When a new professional wants something, how easy it is to send a quick email or text. And then — “ding”– their smartphone goes off when they receive a text or email back, providing them with answers to their queries. But how much effort does it take to send a simple “Thank you” in return? Apparently, a lot.

Within the past two weeks, I received two requests for assistance. And, given my ongoing experience with young professionals who are used to instant gratification (in this case, quick and “easy” answers with no thought to the professional’s time on the other end), my knee-jerk reaction was to say “no”. How terrible of me. Why should these students face the consequences of their peers’ actions? So, of course, I am taking the time to do it. Why? Because I am a professional who believes in mentoring and growing the profession through working together, sharing information and building relationships. Because, for every 1 out of 30 young professionals who take the time to say “Thank You”, I know that perhaps, one day, I will meet or read about that young individual making a difference in our profession. And, by some small chance, maybe I made a positive impact in their career choices and path.

However, I do find the lack of a professional “Thank You” troubling. Why are our young professionals not learning about how to conduct themselves professionally? Should they have to be taught about professional conduct (which in this case, seems more like common courtesy) at the graduate level? Should we be addressing this behaviour at conferences? In the classroom? While I am not sure where this needs to be addressed, we certainly need to take note of this or someday, an aspiring mover & shaker may write an email that is never responded to; never answered because the respondent no longer takes the time to respond to emails and is no longer interested in mentoring or sharing their expertise. What a shame that would be.
