June 16, 2021 Council Meeting @ VIRTUAL (Annual) / Re: Campus Updates
« on: June 15, 2021, 04:41:06 PM »
We're excited at SUNY Delhi to be welcoming everyone to campus for our digital conference. The librarians have been working diligently to make sure that everyone has a great experience. Post SUNYLA we're gearing up with summer projects that we haven't been able to perform for a few years due to building maintenance. If you haven't seen it please check out the amazing welcome video Kate Baroody and Amanda Calabrese worked on, with additional help from other librarians and staff.

Happy SUNYLA everyone! I have started work drafting an archives policy for digitally created documents - like conference proceedings, meetings notes, etc etc. to be archived. Emily Kilcher at U Albany has kindly offered to work on this with me.

The Resnick library at Deli is continuing to offer an array of services to students through the COVID-19 Pandemic. Librarians are also busy at work to prepare for the SUNYLA 2021 virtual conference.

The Resnick Library had a successful Fall semester wherein we moved the majority of our library services online and rotated staff to cover building hours. This semester we are preparing for the return of students in February. Librarians have developed successful online instruction sessions, notably, Kate Baroody developed a popular online Escape Room to serve as an introduction to the library and its services.

Hope everyone is well and continues to be as safe as possible.

Nothing to report. Happy SUNYLA! Thank you to Jocelyn!

SUNY Delhi, like many other campuses, made the decision to close the library for the remainder of the semester. Librarians and library staff will be working remotely to continue to provide essential library services like reference, instruction, and research assistance. Although all of our planned programs for the remainder of the semester have been canceled we're now looking at ways to provide programming through zoom and Facebook. Plans are in the works to do an abbreviated version of our Ugly Art Night Program and we have been working on a lib guide to gathering together all of the free online tours and streaming being offered during the COVID-19 outbreak. Jenny Collins is training two of the library staff to perform basic archiving duties during the pandemic.

Keep on keeping on, all!

SUNY Delhi has had a busy fall. On October 27th we held our second annual Library Con (can't call it a comic con, thanks copyright trolling). We had vendors from the local Oneonta area game stores guiding students through games of Dungeons and Dragons, Lightening Talks given by faculty, a costume contest, an array of crafting activities and a demonstration on Cosplay from a local community member. Several student clubs were involved in the event as well as colleagues from the Oneonta Public Library who very kindly came and ran two escape rooms. Hats off to the phenomenal Liz Santabono (one of our great library clerks) and Librarian Kate Barody for the planning and decorating before the event. Our student attendance was excellent.

We're continuing to make strides further into OER and one of our librarians (Jenny Collins) is working with the honors committee to pass a new honors 100 course with heavy library research skill and information literacy focus.
