Invitation to Attend 2010 Mayo Clinic Libraries Retreat

Dear HSLM Colleagues,

This is an invitation to attend two special sessions that are occurring on the first day of the 2010 Mayo Clinic Libraries "All Sites Retreat" on Monday, October 11, 2010 in Rochester. The sessions described below will be held in Geffen Auditorium, Gonda Building, Mayo Clinic. A continental breakfast in the Plummer Library will begin at 7:15 AM followed by the morning sessions at Geffen, and we will conclude with lunch in the Plummer Library. You are also invited to join us for breakfast and lunch.

"Dr. Jack": At 8:00 AM there will be a short reading by a member of the Library staff from the book Dr. Jack, the Helping Dog. Author Matt Dacy, Illustrator Bob Morreale, Dr. Jack's owner Marcia Fritzmeier and Dr. Jack will present "Two Paws Up: The Story Behind the Story of Dr. Jack the Helping Dog". ("Dr. Jack" is a miniature pinscher and part of the Animal Assisted Therapy Program at Mayo Clinic).


"No Time to Think": At 9:30 David M. Levy, Ph.D. will deliver a keynote address on technology and information overload entitled "No Time to Think". Dr. Levy is professor, Information School, the University of Washington, Seattle. A technologist by training, with a Ph.D. in computer science from Stanford, he worked for twenty years as a researcher in the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) where he focused on the nature of documents and the tools used to create them. His book, Scrolling Forward: Making Sense of Documents in the Digital Age (Arcade, 2001) explored the nature and cultural significance of the transition from paper to digital forms. During the academic year 2005-2006, he was the holder of Papamarkou Chair in Education and Technology at the Library of Congress where his research focused on information and the quality of life. Dr. Levy will share his belief that "today's information overload requires not just better management of information but the creation of space and time for thinking and reflection".

Please join us on Monday, October 11th for Dr. Jack's heartwarming story and Dr. Levy's lecture "No Time to Think". There is no formal registration and no cost, but we would like to know in advance if you will be joining us for some or all of the program, particularly if you will be joining us for breakfast or lunch so that we can make sure that we have enough food.

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.
