Past Presentations

"Freedom to be your best means nothing unless you're willing to do your best." Colin Powell

This hands-on practical A Roadmap to African American and Diversity Resources (ARAADR) presentation helps attendees (librarians, community leaders, administrators) understand the structure of the site and how to teach information literacy to info-seekers. Many important questions are addressed, such as: what can participants take back and use right away, how participants can plan for special diversity programs or what services can be accessed to increase information literacy on various subject areas. The participants will meet online links that will change their experience in locating diversity resources. These ARAADR interactive presentations allow an opportunity for discussions, questions and answers. Join the 21stCentury and learn to meet the challenges of providing really extraordinary info-seeker service to a diverse growing population.

Overview and Summary of Objectives
1. How to find and use an e-book using the Library of Congress, Project Gutenburg
2. How to find scientific and other subject area biographies.

This round table discussion will focus on how the the library environment contributes to or distracts from the learning process. What do students do in libraries and how do they do it? How do social characteristics and learning styles affect outcomes? What is the impact of the physicial environment (lighting, seating, etc.) as well as the psychological environment (library policies, librarian attitudes, etc.)? After the formal presentation there will be time for questions and discussion about strategies for improving libraries as learning centers.
