They will also share the tremendous success they’ve had sponsoring an annual El día de los niños/El día de los libros (Children's Day/Book Day). The Wayne County Public Library will describe how its Latino/Hispanic outreach has resulted in family-centered services that go beyond early literacy and embrace the entire family unit. They will also share how parents and children have learned to use the power of language to discover more about themselves, their family, and their communities as a result of the library’s successful implementation of Motheread©.

Doe v. Gonzales: In Which Doe, the humble librarian, won and Gonzales, the Attorney General of the United States, lost

National Security Letters (NSLs), administrative subpoenas the FBI can issue for itself without any judicial oversight, are a little known part of the USA Patriot Act of 2001.  They are little known because each comes with a perpetual non-disclosure mandate, or “gag order”. Recipients cannot acknowledge to anyone, ever, what the FBI was seeking or even that the FBI paid them a visit. My story is about my three colleagues and I, who are the only people who can legally speak of their encounter with a National Security Letter, having won the right to do so in Federal Court.  The recipients of the other 300,000 NSLs issued since 9/11 must take the secret of their encounter with them to their graves.

The Kaleidoscope of Academic Libraries: Marketing our Services to a Multi Generational Population

Libby Stone, Public Services Librarian and Jody Mosteller, Evening Librarian -- Morris Library, Gaston College--This session will focus upon the promotional campaign by the Gaston College Libraries to the students, faculty, staff and community members of Gaston and Lincoln counties. Our challenge as librarians is to aggressively market our services to the broad range of multi-generational users on the three campuses, from early college high school students to the increasing number of older students displaced due to the recession. We have the ability to make their academic lives less stressful and more successful! The librarians at Gaston College plan to implement new outreach strategies during the 2009 summer and fall semesters at the two existing libraries and to introduce our patrons to the new library at the Belmont campus, which is scheduled to open in August. We will share our experiences, marketing strategies and resources used, evaluating what has worked and what has not during our presentation.

Master Trainers and the Future of e-Learning in North Carolina

In 2007 the State Library of North Carolina initiated the development of on-line training modules by bringing together an e-Learning consultant and a small group of librarians who were also graduates of the State Library's Master Trainer Program. From that workshop four trainers were matched with four topics and they began the process of learning the software for synchronous on-line delivery. In the summer of 2008, these on-line classes were delivered to library staff from academic and public libraries across the state. These trainers will provide information regarding the development and implementation of their on-line classes, modifying in-room content to fit the virtual classroom, creating new content, and delivering meaningful on-line training.
