    Zen and the Art of Flowcharts
    ( 2015-12-04) Kershaw, Mariko
    We all have procedures that we've been meaning to write up, but just have never gotten around to doing. It takes too long and is too complicated. However, we know that it is important to capture this institutional memory. Join me at this session and I will share the "zen teachings" I gained from attending the ACRL 2015 workshop, "Library Orienteering: Lean Into Process Mapping." I will also explain how I implemented what I learned at my library, so that you, too, can master the art of flowcharts.

    Vision Meets Reality: The Leeward Community College Learning Commons Three Years On
    ( 2015-12-04) Oshiro, Wayde ; Hayashi, Junie ; Long, Keahiahi ; Chernisky, Carina
    Learning commons are adaptive spaces that support and promote collaborative learning in an academic setting. In 2012 Leeward Community College opened a learning commons in what was the Library’s main floor. The renovated space includes Library circulation services, a Learning Resource Center, a Writing Center, computer workstations, and a KiMO BEAN café. Learn about our successes as the renovated floor was transformed into a popular campus hub. The Leeward CC Learning Commons is recognized as a dynamic and integral part of the Leeward campus albeit one that is still experiencing growing pains. Our 3rd year begins on a positive note with the adaptive reuse of an existing space into a new Hawai'i Pacific Resource Room. Find out what happens next.

    So Much Social Media, So Little Time: Using Social Media Strategically to Build Community
    ( 2015-12-04) Brookbank, Elizabeth
    Libraries of all types are increasingly using social media to reach the communities they serve – whether that is the public, company employees, or students at a k-12 school or a university. While social media can be useful in making the library more visible to these communities if used strategically, it is a technology that is in a constant state of evolution and reinvention. So how do libraries keep up? More than that, how do they leverage this online technology to build a greater sense of community in their real life populations? This session will explore all these questions and more.

We will share tips about the management plan, data documentation tools, and communication strategies we used to survey 17,000 titles and withdraw more than 3,500.

    Making Connections for Networking and Outreach
    ( 2015-12-05) Kamiya, Jan
    As a librarian at one of the busiest public libraries in Honolulu, Jan will share her experiences and tips with networking, community outreach, advocacy, creating and maintaining positive partnerships, and sharing with colleagues. Because many of these concepts overlap in practice, it is all the more important to take full advantage of opportunities when they present themselves. At best, making these connections can benefit overall promotion of library services while contributing to a richer, more rewarding library career.

Quickly expanding the team to include instructional designers and other librarians, today 8 campuses are involved. Learn how this community developed and find out about our accomplishments to date. Join the discussion and discover the important role of academic libraries in this growing movement.
