Zines, Online Privacy, Whiteboards, Readers Advisory for College Students,
THE Framework, New Tech, and Snacks! There’s something for everyone here,
not to mention the great programming that melds the best of academic and
public librarianship. Plus, there are the great informal conversations and
topics you’ll engage in with colleagues from across the state. You know you
want to come!

There's *still time for early-bird registration for this year's OLA
Conference*, "Libraries Cultivating Creativity
<http://www.olaweb.org/ola-conference-2015>"! The deadline for special
early-bird registration pricing is this Friday, March 13. This year's OLA
Conference will take place in Eugene, Oregon, from April 15 - Friday, April
17, 2015.

Below are the list of OLA Conference programs sponsored, or co-sponsored,
by ACRL-Oregon. Most of our sponsored programs this year are scheduled for
Friday, April 17. If you are leaning toward the option for 1-day-only
conference pricing, this would be a great option to get the most bang for
your (academic) buck!

That said – *notice the social option on Wednesday* – we hope to see you

*Time*:  Wednesday, April 15, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
*Title*: * ACRL-Oregon Reception* (AKA – Hanging Out With Librarian Friends)
*Location*:  First National Taphouse, 51 W. Broadway, Eugene (an easy walk
from the Convention Center)
*Description*:  Come enjoy hors d’oeuvres and a no-host bar with fellow
librarians. Everyone is welcome.

*Time*:  Session 3, Thursday 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.
*Title*:  *Zines 101*
*Description*:  Zines are self-published works made for passion, rather
than for profit. Public, school, academic, and special libraries have built
collections of zines, but they're also a helpful teaching tool. We will
share a hands-on Zines 101 workshop, covering the history and culture of
zines and tips for making them, as well as giving participants time to
contribute a page to a collaborative zine.
*Speakers*:  Kelly McElroy, Oregon State University; Lillian Karabaic,
Independent Publishing Resource Center
*Sponsors*:  OR-ACRL

*Time*:  Session 4, Friday 8:30 - 10:00 a.m.
*Title*:  *Cybercreeps, Data Miners and Peeping Uncle Sams - Teaching
Patrons about Privacy Online*
*Description*:  How can we help our patrons stay safe and protect their
personal information online? In this session, school, public and academic
librarians will provide tips and resources for training library users about
the basics of online privacy protection, including using public computers
and wifi networks safely, savvy use of social media, tracking by Google and
other free web services, and awareness about data mining, scams and
cybercrime. Learn about handouts, tutorials, and workshop ideas to help
your library users stay safe online and reduce the size of their digital
*Speakers*:  Buzzy Nielsen, Hood River County Library District; Amy
Honisett, Multnomah County Library; Garnetta Wilker, Portland Public
Schools (retired); Roberta Richards, Portland Community College
*Sponsors*:  OR-ACRL, IFC

*Time*:  Session 5, Friday 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
*Title*:  *Capturing Learning in the Library Commons: A Whiteboard
Photo-Ethnographic Study*
*Description*:  Libraries are increasingly called upon to provide evidence
of their contributions to, or impact on, student learning. Whiteboards,
which fill many learning spaces, furnish evidence via student-generated
visualizations. Librarians at Oregon State University undertook an
exploratory, term-long, photo-ethnographic study to determine the types of
visualization activities in which students engage to help them learn.
Results show differences in visualization activities across discipline
groups and suggest the need to design study spaces to accommodate those
needs. This study serves as a model for those seeking to identify and
convey ways in which learning spaces support and contribute to student
*Speakers*:  Uta Hussong-Christian, Oregon State University; Rick Stoddart,
University of Idaho
*Sponsors*:  OR-ACRL

*Time*:  Session 5, Friday 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
*Title*:  *Privacy Technology -- Tools for Protecting Your Patrons and
Yourself on Public and Personal Computers*
*Description*:  Data miners, cybercriminals and government spies are
helping themselves to private information, so tech-savvy library staff need
tools to fight back! This session will provide a practical toolkit to
address a range of privacy challenges, including settings for public
computers and wifi networks, mobile phone and social media settings, cloud
computing, encryption, data breaches, and more. Bring your questions and
your own tips to share.
*Speakers*:  Susan Mecklem, Davis Wright Tremaine law firm; Sean Park, Coos
County Library Service District; Linda Rudawitz, Warner Pacific College.
*Sponsors*:  OR-ACRL, IFC

*Time*:  Session 6, Friday 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
*Title*:  *Readers' Advisory in Academic Libraries: A Creative Way to
Contribute to Student Success*
*Description*:  Narrative-length, self-directed reading facilitates
critical thinking and information literacy skills-building, fosters
creativity, increases empathy, and – for students – has been linked to
greater overall academic achievement. Given this, readers’ advisory
activities, while not generally within the purview of academic libraries,
are a novel (no pun intended!) and creative way to contribute to student
success. This session will examine the place of recreational reading and
readers’ advisory in academic libraries. It will also discuss real-life
experiences conducting readers’ advisory with college students, and tips
for creatively and effectively promoting recreation collections and
encouraging a culture of reading in your campus community.
*Speakers*:  Elizabeth Brookbank, Western Oregon University
*Sponsors*:  OR-ACRL

*Time*:  Session 6, Friday 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
*Title*:  *Think Like a Scholar: Using the ACRL Framework to Shape
Collaborative, Discipline-based Information Literacy Instruction*
*Description*:  Collaborating with faculty on teaching information literacy
(IL) is arguably one of the most difficult aspects of academic librarian
work. In this session, we will present how we have used the concepts in
ACRL’s draft Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education to
guide conversations with faculty about teaching research competencies at
Reed College. The Framework and its presentation of threshold concepts is
particularly useful for developing discipline-specific teaching strategies
and approaches when working with core and gateway courses. The session will
include the content we developed in collaboration with faculty for courses
in music, anthropology, history, and psychology.
*Speakers*:  Annie Downey, Ryan Clement, and Erin Conor, Reed College
*Sponsors*:  OR-ACRL

*Time*:  Session 6, Friday 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
*Title*:  *Creativity in Technology: Current and Future Trends*
*Description*:  Presentation on current and future technology trends in
Oregon libraries and beyond with a look to future potential practices and
current best practices. We will have specific examples from Oregon academic
and public libraries, and plan to have some "idea boards" of future tech
that may impact libraries in near future. The session will wrap up with an
opportunity for attendees to share their favorite app and/or tech.
*Speakers*:  Darci Hanning, Oregon State Library; Esther Moberg, Seaside
Public Library
*Sponsors*:  OR-ACRL, Library Technology Round Table
