Something to Talk About
This will be an open discussion among the attendees. Please come prepared to discuss the following topics:
Thematic LibGuides – Have you published a thematic LibGuide recently that you would like to share with other librarians? Current published examples focus on themes like restorative justice, transitional justice, non-adversarial justice, environmental justice.
Crime Mapping Resources – How much demand for such resources have you encountered among your students and faculty? What resources have you found most useful to your users? Have you developed a related LibGuide, handout, or other resource?
Recent Publications, presentations, projects, other initiatives – Have you published, presented, or started or completed a project or new initiative related to your work as a criminal justice librarian recently?
Criminal Justice and Criminology Librarian Tool Kit – The Tool Kit, which was last modified in October 2013, is located at: http://connect.ala.org/node/209515. What’s missing?
Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop, iPad, smartphone, or other web-enabled device to explore online resources during the meeting.
