Continuing Education Workshops: Screencasting: Creating Online Tutorials or Scholarly Communication Issues
Health Sciences Libraries of Minnesota Annual Meeting

We are pleased to announce that HSLM will offer a choice of two continuing education workshops at Metropolitan State University on Friday, June 4, 2010. These workshops are co-sponsored by Health Sciences Libraries of Minnesota (HSLM) and Metropolitan State University's Library and Information Services. Participants will be able to register for one of the following two workshops:

Screencasting: Creating Online Tutorials
Max Anderson, Technology Coordinator, Greater Midwest Region of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine.
This course's main goal is to teach librarians best practices for creating effective screencasts (video-based online instruction modules) using Camtasia. Student learning outcomes for this face-to-face workshop include: the ability to determine how to get the most from your screencasts; learning how to divide content into logical chunks that are most appropriate for online learners; an understanding of best practices for creating content for their topic (e.g. storyboarding, script writing, and voiceover/narration); an understanding of what hardware and software tools work best for which content (and best sources for acquiring needed tools); and the ability to assess the effectiveness of screencasted content. Please note: enrollment for this workshop will be capped at twenty participants and is open to HSLM members only.

Issues in Scholarly Communication for Health Sciences Librarians
Wayne Loftus, Pharmacy Librarian and Web Services Coordinator at the Health Sciences Libraries, University of Minnesota
Nancy Sims, Copyright Program Librarian, University of Minnesota Libraries
What is open access? What do I need to know about the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) mandate that the results of all research funded by NIH grants must be published in PubMed Central? Find out how to access open access resources, including open access scholarly journal articles, Creative Commons licensed materials, open source software, and online tools for information access.

Registration for this event will begin on May 1, 2009 and will be limited to eighty participants. The registration form will be posted on the HSLM blog.

The workshops will take place concurrently during the morning of Friday, June 4. The HSLM Annual Meeting will be held in the afternoon. Beverages, a light continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

We offer this event free of charge to current HSLM members. Non-HSLM members may attend the Scholarly Communication workshop for $30.00. To join HSLM, please fill out the form found here and mail it to the HSLM treasurer, per the instructions provided.

For more information, please contact Nicole Theis-Mahon or Martha Hardy.
