LIS Community Conversation 1: Meeting Notes

DLIS Community Conversation #1

September 8, 2014

Present: There were 9 people in attendance from the DLIS community. One

Next meeting: October 14 (Indianapolis Public Library Central Branch)

I. Establishing the problem

How do we get people to realize the importance of connecting with others on their journey during

the library science graduate program?

faculty member, one UL employee, three students/ALISS board

members, and four new students in the DLIS program.

• We have to work with others in career settings; how can people develop those

skills when classes are now online?

• Several people in the room indicated that they had heard about jobs or

opportunities by making real-life connections with other DLIS individuals. Now

that people are not coming to campus for class, how can we facilitate relationship

building?

II. Roundtable

• ALISS members discussed a recent survey that was conducted to determine students’

willingness to attend in-person events with other members of the DLIS community.

• Someone brought up the idea of doing virtual mentoring within the program; students in

their second or third year could be paired with new students to help them while they get

used to the program.

• Discussed the creation of a listserv just for students – fostering relationships, making

connections, and facilitate distance students connecting with others in their area.

• Discussion: what type of event would get people’s attention and result in a good turnout?

• ALISS will continue to create opportunities for students to meet throughout the school

year. There is an emphasis on helping students make connections outside of the

Indianapolis area.

III. Future Community Conversations

• October event: Scavenger Hunt at the Indy Public Library Central Branch. Attendees will

participate in the activity from approximately 6:30-7:30 with the chance to socialize at a

bar/restaurant afterward.

• Attendees voted on and discussed possible topics for future Community Conversations.

The November topic will be “Has Freedom of Speech changed now that the whole world

is listening?”. The December topic will be “Does Social Justice belong in libraries and

archives?”. Possible locations and details were discussed; these will be solidified in the

coming weeks.

(There will also be a distance location and online version of this event).

School of Informatics & Computing Event

Greetings!

On Friday, September 19th, Dr. Gary Marchionini will be presenting as part of the School of Informatics and Computing’s Colloquia Series.

The topic is: Human-Computer Information Retrieval: Gaps, Overloads, and Sensemaking.

This event will be held on IUPUI’s campus in IT 152 at 10:00am.

Abstract

    Human-Computer Information Retrieval aims to bring humans more fully into the retrieval process. Rather than a turn-taking approach, HCIR aims to engage humans throughout the information seeking experience by leveraging dynamic query user interfaces and agile views of the ongoing process. Web-based retrieval systems use mainly implicit user engagement at this time, however, opportunities exist for leveraging explicit user engagement in personal information (e.g., self-generated health information) or collaborative information seeking settings that accrue context over multiple sessions. This talk will focus on evaluation as the key challenge of HCIR for both development and adoption. Evaluation must take into account human variables as well as the sophistication of today’s search systems that shift the human requirements from query specification to filtering and making sense of large volumes of increasingly rich search results.
