Sunday, 16 June: Half-day workshops (£50 per workshop)


Morning workshops (choose one)

1. Advocacy through impact: A practical workshop

Location: Graham Hills 512

David McMenemy, University of Strathclyde, UK

This hands-on workshop explores the topic of advocacy and how it is understood within LIS, and how it can often be misunderstood as simply marketing.  It highlights the importance of mission and purpose in advocacy, and explores how we can communicate effectively with people who may not view our services the way we do. It considers effective ways to communicate the value of library and information services, and introduces the components of an advocacy strategy.


2. Information overload: Using the systematic review to support evidence-based practice

Location: Graham Hills 513

Claire Wiley, Belmont University, USA

Meggan Houlihan, New York University Abu Dhabi, UAE

Amanda Click, American University, USA

In the era of information overload, the scholarly literature can be a rich source of inspiration and practical tips when we face a challenging issue or question. But it can also be overwhelming or seemingly contradictory. A systematic review, which involves the systematic collection, appraisal and synthesis of research, is a valuable tool that can help us understand findings and identify best practices. This workshop will address appropriate contexts in which LIS practitioners and researchers might utilize this method, systematic review study design, as well as practical considerations and lessons learned by the presenters. Attendees will come away from this session with a deep understanding of this challenging but valuable method, and how it can inform practice.



Afternoon workshops (choose one)

1. Being evidence based in library and information practice: Incorporating evidence-based practice into your workplace

Location: Graham Hills 513

Denise Koufogiannakis, University of Alberta, Canada

Alison Brettle, University of Salford, UK

Based on the book edited by the facilitators, this workshop will walk participants through the EBLIP model put forward and tested by Koufogiannakis (2013) and provide an opportunity for participants to work through and develop an evidence-based approach to their own practice.


2. Outcome measurement in academic libraries: The project outcome model

Location: Graham Hills 512

Sara Goek, Association for College & Research Libraries, American Library Association

ACRL's Project Outcome for Academic Libraries is a free online toolkit designed to help academic libraries assess the impact of essential library programs and services. It provides simple surveys and tools for measuring and analysing key learning outcomes, including interactive data dashboards. In this interactive workshop attendees will learn how to use the Project Outcome surveys and resources and to use that data as the basis for continuous improvements and advocacy.
