Library & Technology - Summit Part 1

The Virtual Librarian Summit is a spin-off from our in-person Research Seminars for Asia Pacific librarians. It is a convention for academic library professionals in the region to learn from peers, exchange insights on how they are managing the current situation and keeping up with technology advancements.

Here’s what the two-part series will cover:

  • Learn from industry peers on library best practices, including how to adapt and remain connected in the face of challenging times
  • Discover the latest technologies and applications revolving around libraries today, including the use of Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Social Media
  • Hear from leading institutions in Asia Pacific on how they are preparing for the next generation of librarians

Summit 1 (9 September) will focus on library best practices, while Summit 2 (14 October) will concentrate on technology and applications.

Note: This event will be conducted in English. It is open to all academic library professionals in the region, including Wiley's existing customers and partners.

Adaptability & Resilience in the Face of Sudden Change: Supporting Teaching & Learning Online

Adaptability & Resilience in the Face of Sudden Change: Supporting Teaching & Learning Online

Victoria Caplan, Head of our Information Instruction and Collection Services, Hong Kong University of Science & Technology

Change is a constant in life, but it can be frightening and difficult to deal with on both organizational and personal levels, especially sudden change. The situation in Hong Kong in the past year has required HKUST Library’s staff to show adaptability and reliance to support HKUST’s move to almost completely online teaching and learning.

In this talk, the speaker will share how HKUST Library staff rose to the challenges presented by the events of 2019-20. She will discuss library communications (internal & external); staffing; changes to the Library as Space; Access Services; Collection Development; Systems; Resource Management; Information Instruction; and Research Support; all marshalled in support of the university’s mission for teaching, learning, and research.

Face the Fake Facts: The Roles of Academic Librarians in Advancing Critical Engagement with Information

Face the Fake Facts: The Roles of Academic Librarians in Advancing Critical Engagement with Information

Bethany Wilkes, University Librarian, Singapore Management University

Are you able to quickly identify fake news with a few simple steps?  Discerning credible news is often not an easy task. The current Coronavirus pandemic has given rise to fake news that, if believed, can have tragic consequences. Again, and again we are reminded of the sophistication and implications of fake news.

The question continually arises - how can academic librarians contribute to equipping students with the skills and habits needed to successfully negotiate this environment? This presentation will explore this question as well as the complexities of fake news and its evaluation. It will provide examples of current strategies targeted to discerning fake news and suggest ways in which practices needed to approach the examination of news can be integrated into teaching and learning activities across the university.
