Presentations for Librarians Book Description :

Recent research on learning from multimedia presentations has indicated that the current way many people prepare their slide presentations may actually hinder learning.

This issue is of special import for librarians who teach, as they often must convey complex information in a very limited amount of time. Combining the best evidence on multimedia learning with real-world practical guidelines, this book aims to provide novice and expert presenters alike with the tools they need to ensure an effective, learner-centred presentation. Presents guidelines and techniques based on evidence from the research literature Provides an easy-to-understand introduction to the relevant learning and instructional design theories behind effective, learner-centred presentations Covers techniques for Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple Keynote and Star Office Impress

Science Librarianship at America s Liberal Arts Colleges Book Description :

Gain valuable insights into the smaller but more personalized work of liberal arts college science librarianship with these interesting and instructive stories. A striking number of outstanding scientists got their initial encouragement at small liberal arts colleges. Their success is due to both the efforts of their professors and the work of the liberal arts college science librarians who served them assiduously. In Science Librarianship at America's Liberal Arts Colleges, science librarians vividly describe the life and times of small liberal arts college science libraries and the workday life of librarians serving scientists from a main campus library. They describe their efforts to defend expensive science collections in the face of tight budgets, to singlehandedly monitor and select literature in all areas from astronomy through zoology, and to compete with the humanities and social studies for library shelf space. This unique volume is the first to publish prose studies of actual libraries and librarians and provide an intensely personal look at science librarianship at these institutions. The contributing librarians present a range of views on subjects including the historical motivation for their science libraries, physical descriptions of library layouts, statistics on holdings and purchasing trends for science materials, daily tasks and sense of mission concerning library patrons, use of new technology, and future directions for science libraries at small liberal arts colleges. Science Librarianship at America's Liberal Arts Colleges covers a variety of subjects of interest to science librarians at liberal arts colleges, directors of liberal arts college libraries, and library school graduate students. Some of the major topics discussed include: what working liberal arts college science librarians actually do each day how they sustain the enthusiasm of America's few science majors how they satisfy the library collections and services demands of faculty ac

Careers in Music Librarianship III Book Description :

Music librarianship¿a profession that brings joy and satisfaction to many¿is subject to constant change that requires, in turn, continual adaptation from its practitioners so that they become comfortable with new technologies and formats, changing standards, and fresh approaches. Relevant and solid training and education are crucial to success in this field, but they alone are insufficient to guarantee placement or promotion.

Knowledge of training, education, and current employer expectations for music librarians can help ease such concerns and pave the way for a successful career or career change. As with the two previous editions of Careers in Music Librarianship, this volume provides career resources and guidance for current and future librarians, as well as insights for mentors and educators working with these populations. With this volume, the contributors provide a selection of readings that can help people in and considering this profession to make realistic, informed, and strategic decisions about how to succeed in it. As the profession changes, so must the professionals within it, and everyone involved with music librarianship will benefit from the guidance offered in this exciting, new book.
