LIS Update: March 2014

Here is the LIS Update for March 2014. As has become our custom, we write this update three times a year to provide ourselves and  rest of the community with a review of recent accomplishments, and more importantly, a roadmap for what to expect in the next three to six months. In addition, we make a nod to what we see as future issues and challenges further down the road.  

Highlights since the last LIS Update include:

Key goals for the next three to six months include:

While we pursue all of this, we will of course keep doing all of our regular stuff: prepping for Language Schools, upgrading classroom and lab technology, adding more wireless access points, updating various systems, teaching information literacy courses, buying and cataloging library materials, and distributing new computers.

One goal that we are very keen to pursue is to invent a fool-proof, indestructible stapler that no one can steal.  

If you have questions, comments, or suggestions on any of this, please feel free to contact me (Mike Roy, mdroy@middlebury.edu) or do so on-line at http://sites.middlebury.edu/lis/2014/03/27/march-lis-update/  .

Discussions and planning with CTLR are still very high in our priorities, this has been a great opportunity to formalize what has always been a good working relationship. Our own assessment of the Digital media Tutor program and the use of the WIlson Media Lab are helping us to plan the future of these services.

Priorities for the Next 3-6 Months

Symposium planning, lecture capture pilots, and hiring of new Digital Media Tutors for summer projects will be filling our time this spring.

Longer-range plans

We have just started speaking with CTLR about how we can be more involved with the Pedagogy Series, one of our ideas being a Digital Identity/Social Media Bootcamp for faculty that follows the model. We will also build on the data gathered to inform design changes to the Wilson lab in order to better support collaborative group work.
