Description : This unique guide offers fresh insights on how graphic novels and comics differ from traditional books and require different treatment in the library—from purchasing, shelving, and cataloging to readers' advisory services, programs, and curriculum. Challenging librarians to rethink some of their traditional practices, Maximizing the Impact of Comics in Your Library provides creative and proven solutions for libraries of all types that want to get comics into the hands of fans and promote readership. The author describes how libraries would benefit from an in-house classification system and organization that accounts for both publishers and series. In addition, acquiring comics can often be tricky due to renumbering of series, reboots, shifting creative teams, and more—this book shows you how to work around those obstacles. Shelving and displays that reflect comic readers' browsing habits, creative programs that boost circulation of comics and graphic novels, and how comics can play a vital role in educational institutions are also covered. • Addresses common challenges librarians face with comics and graphic novels collections, and shows how to surmount them • Offers a solutions-focused approach • Describes how comics can be used to better engage your community and to educate youth • Fills a gap in the professional literature, covering topics not touched upon in the existing literature • Serves as a vital resource for public, academic, and school libraries

Description : The ethos of every library is to serve and to instruct. Library professionals teach every day in the sense that they show patrons where to find books or how to use computers. Increasingly, however, library users just don’t have the time to attend face-to-face workshops in advance of needs that they may have. They want to know the answer to their questions when THEY need it, not when YOU teach it. Take Your Library Workshops Online! will help you move valuable “teachable moments” from the physical library or classroom to virtual spaces. It features real-life examples of how to: create online synchronous sessions, brief tutorials, and pointed screen captures. Learning in the online environment can happen in a two-minute video or in a creative meme-like screen capture and can cover topics from logging in to a database to evaluating sources. Creating these learning objects can take from less than one day up to a week depending on the time you have to devote to it and the level of detail required.

Description : Once upon a time, looking for a book in the library involved an ancient mechanism called the card catalog. Now, most card catalogs are gone forever and patrons gaze at computer screens. As electronic technology becomes more pervasive, or invasive, librarians and library users continue to be embroiled in the controversy over the function of a library and its staff. As "knowledge" loses ground to "information" and techware pre-empts book budgets, library collections are "purged" and reference librarians find their role diminished—except to put more paper in the printer (to serve the voracious wood-pulp appetite of the new paperless society). The essays in this book analyze the complex issues surrounding the postmodern library and its increasingly impersonal nature, as the librarian at its center is more and more frequently marginalized. The insights and observations, both practical and thoughtful are those of a practicing librarian. An annotated bibliography guides the reader to additional important articles and books that explore the future of the library and the role of technology.

Description : This guide breaks down the components of government documents librarianship into manageable, easy to understand parts. Lisa Ennis, a “tried by fire” documents librarian, begins by looking at career opportunities in both Federal Depository Libraries (FDLs) and non-depository libraries with government document collections. She discusses skills and traits; networking and training options; managing and administering people, paperwork, and collections; and both public service and technical service issues. She provides essential background on the GPO and the FDLP, covering the shift to a digital environment and publication of the new Electronic FDL Manual. Ennis's informative coverage is matched by an enthusiastic “can-do” approach that will appeal to any librarian considering or already engaged in government documents work.
