Failure ConfessionsAshley Maynorashley@thelibrarycollective.org We do this awesome session of quick lightning talks each year: Let's celebrate our failures: Projects that failed spectacularly or went nowhere, and why, and lessons learned. Participants are encouraged to address their failure in four sections: hopes and dreams; the turning point; how it failed; takeaways. 6-8 minutes total, 4 (super fun, visual) slides.Looking for about 3-4 presenters -- send a brief description of the "failure" you'd like to share and I'll be in touch to tell you more. Do let me know if you've attended LibCol before so I have an idea of your familiarity with the session. I'll follow up and let you know if it's a good fit for this year!

Trading Spaces: When Young Guns strive to be Real GeniusesKatherine Quinnellkatherine.quinnell@athens.eduLibraries are a Risky Business, but with the Lethal Weapon of managing up, you can become a Top Gun at your institution. This session will explore the differences and similarities between mentoring and managing up, examine the work relationships around us, and discuss how to deal with those managers who are challengingWe need real-life scenarios (or made up ones) of difficult boss or people related work issues. Think of a scenario with your boss or a peer you think could have gone better or wish you had approached differently, and tell us what it was. We will be choosing three to five for role playing. (You will not be required to admit that it was yours!)

Empowering To Deliver: Affect Change by Showing What Your Team Can DoBridget Rowanbridget.rowan@nau.eduDo you want to move your library past “how it’s always been done”? Learn how to initiate positive institutional changes with lower level employees and then letting those values trickle up and out, not down. Empower your employees to be innovators… all while working with your organization rather than against it.We have the privilege of being highly selective in hiring our student employees and having responsive administrators, but others don’t. We’d love to hear from someone who has a done work like this with a different kind of staff (not students, or resistant employees, for example) or despite resistant leadership.

Never Gonna Give You Up: Critical Collection Maintenance and Faculty Engagement in the Academic LibraryCourtney Huntcourtneyahunt@gmail.comDelivering to our communities involves responsible collection management, which includes the deselection of materials. This process can often become political and provoke controversy. In this session, you’ll be asked to roll up your sleeves and dig into the collection review process, creating collaborative objects to share and discovering new ideas to take home. Looking for an additional presenter (1) who has experience with collection maintenance in their library. We’d love someone who works in a community or technical college setting to join us. This would allow us to show a diverse array of experiences engaging with patrons and outdated content. If you are interested, please send us a scenario you have worked on related to deselection, whether you have engaged patrons (and how you did so) through that process or if you worked on a project that sought to weed outdated materials from your collection. Librarians or library staff members from underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to reach out to us! Would love for this roundtable to be as inclusive as possible.

Delivering equitable & inclusive instructional content using UDL principles. Jacqueline Frankjacqueline.frank@montana.eduUniversal Design for Learning (UDL) makes instructional content accessible, and an equitable and inclusive user experience for everyone. These simple guidelines benefit all learners and support all learning styles. Come see how easy it is to make instructional content inclusive for everyone in PDF, Word, PPT, and HTML, and walk-away with the skills, and tip-sheets to do it yourself. Are you an expert in UDL? Admittadly, I am not an expert yet...although I have started learning about existing Best Practices to be able to teach others the main concepts, provide resources/instruction on how to create acccessible docs, and to increase awareness. I'd welcome collaboration with others who know more about UDL, accessibility, and inclusive library practices. For an feneral outline of the session and how I envision the format/content going, see my full UDL proposal on GoogleDocs from this link: tinyurl.com/tlc-udl

Who Are You: Identity Struggles on the Front Lines of LibrarianshipJennifer Nacenace@hws.eduUsing the lens of particular identities (such as feminist, atheist, activist, gender nonconformist), this facilitated dialogue will ask more questions than it answers. We will begin to frame what reflective tensions exist between personal identity and public service within the realm of librarianship and in our collective contexts. What does it mean to meet people where they are?I am looking for a co-facilitator. I have a variety of dialogue-promoting activities planned. If you have skills in dialogue/listening-based moderation, discernment, or thought exercises, please send me a line! If it's a good fit, I'll let you know!

Schools? Where we're going we don't need schoolsGrif Petersongrif@p2pu.orgUniversities have fallen, and they can’t get up. Across the US, we believe that universities reinforce inequality more than they dismantle it. High tuition fees, growing labor disputes on campus, and a diploma-based system that creates value through scarcity all add up to injustice. Luckily, there is an affordable, educational response team standing by at your local library. The mission of libraries (both academic and public), to provide free access and knowledge to everybody, is far more progressive than any university, and that is what we need today.

So, are libraries a better model for the future of education than universities? We’re going to debate this topic in a hyper-participatory debate exercise called “4-Chairs”. After that, we’ll map what libraries can/can’t/should/shouldn't do to become stronger leaders in the field of education, and introduce a few free tools and methodologies that may help you achieve your library learning goals.
Has your academic library supported education opportunities for the general public? We want to hear about it! We'd like to find a co-facilitator from an academic library with experience and/or interest with non-formal education/public-facing programming at the library. Have a look at p2pu.org, and if you like what you see, please get in touch!

Sex, Lies, and Data Mining: Advocating for Student PrivacySean Leahysleahy@champlain.eduNow is the time for librarians to stand and deliver against Learning Analytics (LA) practices that endanger student data privacy and integrity. Building capacity for LA should be consistent with the values of our profession. This session will focus on the challenges of bringing the two interests into alignment with an activity that asks participants to apply different ethical frameworks to actual cases in which student data is being harvested and put to use.Do you know of an ethically murky case in which student data are being harvested and put to use, at your institution or elsewhere? We are seeking Learning Analytics-related scenarios for our session, which will ask participants to apply ethical frameworks to actual cases libraries are contending with. All cases will be revised to ensure anonymity.
