The Knowledge Audit: Evaluating Intellectual Capital Use (KMKS102)
This course provides techniques and guidelines for understanding and utilizing the knowledge audit, an evaluation tool that combines the methodologies of the standard needs analysis (asking what research resources and services people require to do their work) and the information audit (how research resources and services are produced or acquired and how the resources are actually used) to establish and evaluate knowledge assets for the larger parent organization. Participants will explore the distinctions between the needs analysis and the knowledge audit, matching the organization's knowledge strategy with service delivery goals, the Henczel seven-stage audit model, and determining the scope and resource allocation for conducting the knowledge audit.

Fundamentals of Knowledge Management and Knowledge Services (KMKS101)
This course links knowledge management (KM) theory to knowledge services (KS), the management methodology that brings together information management, KM, and strategic learning. Throughout the larger organization, the goal of knowledge services--characterized as the practical side of KM--is to strengthen research and enterprise-wide knowledge asset management, thus enabling contextual decision making and accelerated innovation. Participants learn techniques for implementing knowledge services--that is, for "putting KM to work"--and, in so doing, learn to support the organization as a knowledge culture. Topics include KM/KS history and an exploration of the KM/KS framework (people, process and technology). Participants will develop an action plan to take back to their organization.

Information Is Beautiful: Using Design to Enhance Your Narrative
Due to the rise of the knowledge economy, information is increasingly valuable--yet executives have less time to consume it. In today's crowded information landscape, info pros can highlight their value to leadership by delivering easily digestible yet robust client-ready presentations. Finding and communicating the business narrative creates memorable audience insights, and effective visualization techniques allow for rapid consumption of critical points while keeping length to a minimum. The use of narrative and design turns complex data and information into simple, easy-to-understand messages. From Tufte to TED, we'll explore a variety of ways to use infographics and design to illustrate the narrative. Through concepts, case studies and templates, attendees can expect to gain practical advice on how to deliver high-value insights to executive decision makers.

Patent Research: The Next Level
Patents mean big business! In fact, Google bought Motorola just to acquire its patents. But how many of us know what a patent is or what makes something patentable? How do we know if our organization is unintentionally infringing on another organization's patents? What can we do to improve our organization's defensive portfolio? In this expanded version of the popular Patent Research 101 presentation, students will be able to define a patent, explain the opportunities for librarians in patent research, and label the different parts of a patent. After the basics, we'll move to the next level and expose students to free and commercial resources to use in patent research, explain different patent classification systems and highlight their strengths and weaknesses, demonstrate advanced research techniques for prior art research, and explain how to determine if a patent is enforceable. NOTE: Bring your laptop for the hands-on portion of the class.  Dedicated Internet access will be provided for this session.

Organizations today leave a “digital exhaust” that can be seen across the Internet.  While large publicly traded organizations leave a prominent exhaust pattern, small and medium-sized businesses also leave a large smoke trail that can be followed to its source.

SPOTLIGHT SESSION: E-Books and How They Affect Special Libraries
The library world has been talking about e-books and how they might affect libraries for several years. The problem is that this conversation has almost always been skewed toward public library use of e-books. Other types of libraries, particularly special libraries, have generally been left out of the discussion. Unlike in many public libraries, the motivations for developing special library collections include not only access but also preservation and building a complete collection. The current database model of e-book lending and the copyright issues surrounding e-books do not bode well for the special library model. This session will explore these issues with a panel of special librarians and a member of the publishing industry, who will discuss what the needs are and what can be done to address them.

Project Management Certification - What's in It for You?
Delivering results on time and on budget indicates effective project management which, in turn, is a sign of a successful leader.  Project management is a highly regarded certification, and many institutions require or prefer that employees have the Project Management Professional (PMP) credential. Specific education and work experience requirements must be met, and certified project managers must agree to  adhere to a code of professional conduct.  Come hear more about this topic from a librarian who holds PMP certification.  She will speak about her experience studying and working for the certification, keeping it current, and how it’s a value-added bonus to her credentials. You'll also learn about the CAPM (Certified Associate in Project Management), an entry-level certification for those new to project management.  We’ll round out the session by hearing from an employer who seeks out and values employees with certification. The Project Management Institute structure provides many great benefits for librarians, and our speakers will add  interesting perspectives on the topic.

Systems Thinking in Libraries
In the professional settings in which we work, and particularly in high-risk environments like health care, nuclear engineering and aviation, it is not enough to address problems on their own or work through them one at a time without an eye toward improvement. Instead, it is necessary to solve difficulties within a larger context, and that’s where systems thinking comes in. Popularized by Peter Senge of MIT, systems thinking is a way to view organizations by taking a broad perspective that intersects structures, patterns, and events.  Information professionals can learn how to avoid unintended consequences and leverage expertise by developing systems thinking capacities. Session participants will apply diagnostic techniques like the 5 Whys and archetype identification as avenues for navigating systemic influences within the librarian’s sphere to ensure effective services.

SPOTLIGHT SESSION: The Race to the Patent Office - the Impact of the America Invents Act
The America Invents Act (Patent Reform Act) went into effect on 16 March 2013.  It switched the U.S. patent system from “first to invent” to “first to file" and is the most significant change to the system in nearly 60 years.  The act has wide ramifications concerning the kinds of innovations that are patentable, who owns inventions, who can use inventions, and how patents are challenged and defended.  A panel of speakers will discuss how the act has affected the patent process and the dramatic and unforeseen impacts they have seen since the law went into effect.

The Key Success Factor for Knowledge Management… What Else? Change Management.
Change is inevitable, yet organizations and their employees typically find it difficult to adapt. Learn to use change management as part of a knowledge management strategy to effect change within the social infrastructure of the workplace. Knowledge sharing is not rewarded in many organizations, and a well-executed change management program may be required before taking on knowledge management efforts and/or achieving desired business outcomes. This session will explore change management solutions with a panel of KM practitioners who will share case studies, practical tips, and lessons learned on how best practices in change management can affect the success of knowledge sharing initiatives.

How to Apply Your Taxonomy to Your Content
Once you have target content, you need to index and define a taxonomy to do the indexing. The next decision is how to deploy the taxonomy. This session will examine various aspects surrounding the decision to use autocategorization, or machine-aided indexing; the different ways in which autocategorization can be deployed; and some best practices around the implementation of autocategorization.

Where Did the Books Go? Exploring E-Library Models at the Engineering and Physical Sciences Libraries at Cornell University
Within two years, both the Physical Sciences Library and Engineering Library at Cornell University closed their stacks and transitioned to e-libraries.  These changes were largely in response to a declining budget and recognition that our users largely coexist in the online environment when conducting research.  This new business model presents challenges to the PS and Engineering librarians, including communicating where the print resources have gone and how to access online material and get help from librarians.  The new e-library models encourage us to reinvent ways of performing outreach and to develop virtual tools and services to further assist our science communities.

Transforming Libraries: by SLA President Deb Hunt and SLA Past-President Guy St. Clair
How to Establish the "Relevancy Level" for Your Specialized Library?

1. Does the strategic vision of your library match what's going on in the larger KM/knowledge services community?
2. Do you have a seat at the table when corporate decisions are made about the management of information, knowledge, and strategic learning?

Come to this interactive seminar with Deb Hunt and Guy St. Clair as they share their insights about these two critical questions. You'll learn if your specialized library is as relevant as it could be, and you'll hear about how other specialist librarians moved their libraries to increased organizational and/or corporate relevance. During this session, Soutron Global will briefly showcase how their transformational library, information, and knowledge management solutions can easily help make your library assets more strategically relevant and easily accessible.

Please RSVP to reserve your seat by registering on our website.

Optimizing Your CI Collection: Where PubINT Meets HumINT
The most successful competitive intelligence process draws on both secondary (published intelligence or pubINT) and primary (human intelligence or humINT) research efforts. Historically, each type of research has been thought of as a separate activity, with development of skills and expertise focused on one or the other. This session will discuss how CI researchers can increase and enhance the value of their efforts by integrating both activities. It will also describe how the use of social media – which is essentially a hybrid of pubINT and humINT – helps provide for an efficient and productive collection process and delivery of complete and comprehensive intelligence findings. Attendees will leave the session with actionable insights they can apply directly and immediately to their CI collection efforts.

SPOTLIGHT SESSION: The Digital Preservation Network
Digital technology has enabled an unprecedented growth of knowledge in essentially all areas of scholarly activity. This knowledge, however, is inherently vulnerable, as digital collections typically are not durable and remain susceptible to multiple points of failure. Absent focused and coordinated effort, much of today’s scholarship will be lost to future generations. The Digital Preservation Network (DPN) seeks to rectify this situation by creating a federated preservation network, owned by and for the academy, that will provide secure digital preservation of the scholarly and cultural record.

What’s All the Commotion about KM Governance?
Social media, wikis, document repositories and discussion forums increasingly play an important role in our workplaces. There is a lot of information out there, but do users know what information should be shared or what information is already available that could help them do their jobs better? KM governance establishes standards and guidelines that ensure the information that is shared is appropriate, pertinent, and easy to find.  Come and listen to our experts as they share their best practices on setting up governance rules and guidelines to organize the chaos and dramatically improve the user’s experience.

Deepen your understanding of the value of storytelling as a tool for knowledge management. Storytelling is an extremely valuable KM tool that allows users to share knowledge, develop trust and commitment to create an emotional connection. They provide a context and focus for communicating tacit knowledge and allow us to convey values, ethics, and morals that contribute to individual players' and teams' work ethics and connection to the company. This session will use a number of storytelling techniques to demonstrate how a story can be used in situations such as strategy development, change management, and evaluation.

Access to federally funded research and research data is a topic of strong interest.  The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy has directed the principal research funding agencies to develop public access policies to both peer reviewed journal articles arising from federal funds and to the research data that underlies these articles. This talk will put this current directive in the broader context of the open access evolution and in the growing interest in open data. In particular, the talk will focus on the copyright issues that have to be addressed and managed in the context of providing public access to federally funded research and potential with respect to data access as well. The possibilities of text mining and data mining are driving this conversation, and the talk will conclude with thoughts about the future of this terms of use discussion.

SPOTLIGHT SESSION: Researching Emerging Issues: Climate Change through a Kaleidoscope
We will explore researching emerging issues, using climate change as an example. Climatic change affects many professions served by special librarians. It is a relatively new topic, but it already has an extensive and varied resource base. Our speakers will address how they, in their varying fields of research, approach this seemingly common topic in different ways.  Aspects of climate change intersect each speaker’s specialty (e.g., energy, pollution, water and regulations), but some aspects affect only specific fields. We will take examples from each to explore techniques and resources that aid in researching the changing emerging issue of climate change, and draw out common approaches for tackling similarly complex emerging research challenges.

Come learn how you can be indispensable to your organization when disaster happens! Hurricane, tornado, wildfire, flood, bird flu or earthquake: it’s no longer “if," but "when.”  Speakers will share lessons learned by affected libraries and information centers, as well as guidelines for effective disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. They'll also discuss ways social media is used (including specific tools), why it’s important, and the ways in which we can support and undertake social media efforts ourselves during a disaster. Participants will break into groups to run through a few table-top disaster simulations and consider how leading customized versions of this exercise back home can contribute to their and their employers' resiliency.

Optimal Learning through Collaboration: How, Why, Who, and Where?
The facilitation of optimal learning is a best practice in the field of education, and collaboration is emerging as an important component of instructional practice.  Education and library science literature offers case studies and articles highlighting librarians and educators co-teaching to provide deeper learning experiences for students. Collaboration between librarians and other professionals, if done effectively, creates opportunities that increase every student’s learning. This panel will explore different perspectives on the role of collaboration in facilitating optimal learning.  How can we create optimal learning experiences in the current environment? How can we demonstrate the value of librarian/instructor collaboration? How can librarians and instructors together facilitate appropriate student collaboration to further enhance learning? This session will address the theoretical and practical characteristics of optimal learning through collaboration for our constituencies.

Introduction to Text Mining
How are you managing big data?  Whether you are talking about scientific journals, health records or social media, this program will introduce you to how natural language processing is used to extract knowledge from text so facts and trends are found faster and more reliable. Through lecture and the use of case studies, we will cover the basics of natural language processing, and explore why  a particular gene is of interest, why people are not taking their flu vaccine, and a variety of other applications. No prior knowledge of text mining is necessary to benefit from this session. Our speaker will provide an overview of the basic concepts, illustrate techniques using real-world examples, and clear up some of the jargon used by more expert users. After this session, attendees will be able to identify how text mining differs from traditional keyword based, document retrieval approaches that many search engines use.

SPOTLIGHT SESSION: Collecting Dangerously: The Hows and Whys of Controversial Collections
In special libraries, we are often charged with the duty to cover subjects from every possible angle, even if they're controversial. Many academic libraries hold the papers of politically divisive figures, and the Baseball Hall of Fame has the collection of hate mail that Jackie Robinson received. Each of these collections is important for research purposes, but the politics behind developing them can get very hairy indeed. How do you display them? Catalog them? How does your average patron view this collection verses a serious researcher? How do you explain this collection to your board members who might not understand why it exists? This will be a lively presentation of different controversial collections and a discussion of how they have been developed and presented to both the public and their organizations.

Our tour will begin with a brief bus tour of downtown San Diego. Once aboard the USS Midway, the curator will give us a short presentation on the ship’s library. After the presentation we can tour the library, which is not always open.  For the remainder of our visit we can enjoy an audio-guided tour.  We will have access to over 35 exhibits and displays, the mess deck, berthing spaces, hangar deck, flight deck and island.  Story-telling docents, many of whom served on the Midway, will regale us with stories of sacrifice and service to our country. The Midway is located less than half a mile from the Seaport Village shopping area.  Seaport Village has  over 50 shops and restaurants many of which are unique to San Diego. The bus will leave from the Marriott and from the Midway. Wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared for sun, wind, and climbing up and down steep, narrow stairways (ladders, in Navy parlance).  The Midway is not ADA compliant, but its exhibits are 60% wheelchair accessible.  The library is non-accessible, but the presentation will be.
