June 14, 2017 Council Meeting @ Stony Brook (Annual) / FACT2 Report
« on: June 14, 2017, 09:21:20 AM »
Conference on Instruction and Technology (CIT) 2017, Teaching and Learning in Multiple Dimensions, took place at  SUNY Oneonta, May 30 - June 2, 2017.http://cit.suny.edu/cit-2017
There were a number of SUNY librarians and library directors in attendance and who presented. A major theme that came out of the conference was the scale up and support of the adoption of OER (open educational resources). There are SUNY libraries involved in these efforts on some campuses. 

The SUNY Learning Commons and groups using it (including FACT2) will be transitioning to a new platform named Workplace by Facebook. Here's the note from Lisa Raposo at CPD:
"The current Commons users will be the first people to have access to Workplace, and we hope you will be able to give shape to our space before we launch across all the entire University System.   Workplace provides a new way of communicating, and includes additional functionality, such as Chat and Video, that were not available in the current platform.
Workplace will enable collaboration across the System, identify expertise, and build colleagues’ connections by allowing you, the user, to connect to groups and people across the system as you choose.
If you currently facilitate a group or community within the current Learning Commons platform, you are invited to learn how to move your group activity into the new Workplace Platform."

« on: September 23, 2016, 10:48:35 AM »
At the June meeting it was decided that this committee would come up with a new charge and present it to SUNYLA.

I'll be scheduling a meeting for October to discuss this and sent out a call to SUNYLA listserv as well as those who have indicated interest in the past.

January 29, 2016 Council Meeting @ FIT / Ad-Hoc Advocacy Committee
« on: January 29, 2016, 09:43:12 AM »
After the last council meeting, a call went out for volunteers to serve on the Ad-Hoc Advocacy Committee that will be partnering with the SCLD Advocacy group. There were 12 responses from librarians who are willing to serve on the committee. I volunteered to serve as chair.

I met with SCLD President, Mark McBride, and virtually attended one of the SCLD Advocacy group meetings. This is what SCLD has identified as their charges: 

SCLD will advocate for SUNY Libraries, promoting the value of libraries within SUNY and state-wide.   
   
3.1.   SCLD will develop a marketing strategy and public relations plan.
3.1.1.Write an elevator speech for value of SUNY libraries 
3.1.2.Develop a plan to meaningfully engage SUNY Administration at Spring 2016 meeting
3.1.4.Obtain a SUNY Libraries web presence on the www.suny.edu website 
3.2.1.Inventory the roles libraries are currently taking on their campuses with Open SUNY 

The SCLD Advocacy group assigned a few of their members to each charge. The next step will be for me to pair up the SUNYLA representatives with the SCLD representatives on each of the charges, so that SUNYLA has representation in each of these areas and can contribute to raising the profile of SUNY Libraries.

Questions can be directed to Katie DeRusso kderusso@monroecc.edu!
