    CUL Academic Assembly, November 1st, 2007
    Golding, Steve (2007-11-06T02:15:08Z)
    "Higher Education Administration in the 21st Century - The Cornell Model." The talk will take a look at some of the challenges facing higher education administration in the coming years and how Cornell might address them with examples. Specifically, I will look at issues around planning, employee development, emerging new administrative goals and the structural changes required to adapt to these new challenges in a decentralized environment. The talk will also focus in on the evolving role that employees can play in helping management affirm goal statements and set reasonable benchmarks to assess organizational progress.

    Strange New Librarians
    Wilder, Stanley (2007-09-10T18:22:30Z)
    Abstract: As a group, librarians are perilously close to being the oldest professionals in the U.S.-- older than the clergy or teaching faculty for example, though mercifully younger than marine architects. What's more, the population of librarians is also aging quickly, meaning that the profession is now entering a period of retirements higher than any in living memory. And for all that, the most compelling aspect of the demographics of librarianship is the emergence of a youth movement that is blurring the distinction between professional and support staff, eroding the relevance of the MLS degree, and creating a new class of library professionals who get far more money for far less library experience. And then there's Canada.

    Being a Librarian
    Calhoun, Karen (2006-09-27T19:52:09Z)
    Librarians have perhaps taken the most pride in their role as intermediaries, whether as reference librarians personally connecting users to the information they need, or as the creators of tools, like library catalogs, that facilitate those connections. However, in the interconnected world of the Web, information seekers behave more and more self-sufficiently, choosing simple but powerful search engines and moving well beyond catalogs and library collections in their pursuit of information. Using her recent research on the integration of the catalog with other discovery tools as a starting point, Calhoun will explore how librarians can continue advancing the state of knowledge in a digital world.
