I get on a plane at 8:30AM tomorrow and I haven't even touched my packing. I should probably get on that...
Here's what I am working on:
AGLS Conference Presentation: I'm jointly presenting a session on the scholarship of teaching and learning as it relates to general education. We did a brief run through of our session today and talked about where we would let the audience participate. I just need to finalize my bit of notes and make sure I've got everything printed out. Then I need to get ready to head to Austin.
Embedded Librarian: We're doing more embedded librarian work this semester. I'm in nine classes and we're starting to get into the meat of the semester. I'm conducting several reviews each week to stay on top of the classes to recommend material related to what the students are working on. I'm also meeting with professors to discuss the live library instruction I can offer. This is more instruction work than we've done for a few years, but it feels great to reach more students.
Database Trials: Our library is demoing three different vendor databases and tools right now. I've been sending a lot of messaging trying to get faculty to try them out and send us feedback. I've got one more week to get them to let me know what they think. Of the three, there is one that I think we should definitely make a permanent part of our collection... I just need to get the faculty backup to help make our case for funding.
