New Staff Reference titles

Posted on June 26, 2015. Filed under: Professional Development, Reference | Tags: , |

We have added some exciting new titles to the staff reference collection.

The Non-nonsense guide to training in Libraries

Layout 1

This title offers guidance for training users, colleagues or other groups. Contents includes: The people side of training; Use of technologies to support training practices; Different approaches to learning and teaching; Planning and designing training; Delivering training: face-to-face and blended learning; Evaluation of training events and continuous improvement; Learning and development in the workplace.


The Artist’s Library

This one is also in the general collection. It looks at potential activities and partnerships for libraries and artists (individuals or organisations) and how artists can find inspiration in libraries.

Metaliteracy: reinventing information literacy to empower learners

I did a MOOC run by the writers of this book and found it fascinating. I came out an empowered learner! Basically the concepts behind the book and the MOOC are that new information and communication technologies have changed the way we learn (and teach) and as a result  the scope of traditional information skills has metamorphosed. As a BTW, you can explore a list of MOOCs here.

We have also added 2 books on apps for librarians.

The best 100 free apps for libraries and Apps for librarians.

Staff Reference titles are held outside my office and can be borrowed. Just put them on your card. If you want something sent to your branch, reserve the item and let someone at Library HQ know (we don’t do a pull list for those). Thanks. PC
