Implementation of library 2.0 services in Engineering Education Case Study: Integrated Learning Initiative at Queen's University A Presentation to: American Society for Engineering Education Engineering Teaching and Learning Practices (ETLP) 2007 St. Lawrence Section Conference Nasser Saleh October 20, 2007
Agenda • About Web 2.0 • Library 2.0 applications at Queen’s University Library • Queen’s University integrated learning initiative • About the Integrated Learning Librarian • Queen’s University Applied Science’s Portal • Library presence within the applied science portal • Lessons Learned and future steps • Questions & Comments
Web 2.0 • Web 2.0 is often defined through the technologies that constitute it such as social software, wikis, blogs, podcasts, RSS feeds, and Web services and it is hard to get a specific definition for what’s meant by Web 2.0 an defining a hard boundary for Web 2.0, but rather defining a gravitational core for those services and their outputs . • The core of Web 2.0 technologies relies on how they transform the web into a space where everyone can create and share information collaboratively in a flexible, dynamic and adaptable way.
Library 2.0 applications at Queen’s University Library • Queen’s University Library has been exploring the possible implementation of web 2.0 applications in library services; the library had formed working groups and functional teams that explored different aspect of developing library services and increasing access to library resources • Infrastructure readiness? • Human resources? • Time?
Library 2.0 model Six Pillars of Library 2.0 applications Radical decentralization 4. Remixable content . Small pieces loosely joined 5. User as contributor . Perpetual beta 6. Rich user experience .
Integrated Learning at Queen’s Applied Science • The integrated learning initiative at Queen’s applied science has initiated in mid 90’s to prepare graduates for increasingly rigorous expectations, including a shorter learning curve for achieving professional competence, ,enhanced professional skills, in addition to a strong foundation in theory, the ability to work with, and learn from, engineers in other disciplines and other fields such as business and economics, awareness of the societal impact of engineering activities, and lifelong learning skills
Applied Science Portal This area displays the results of any query run through widgets; the purpose is to keep the user within the portal and not leaving the website This widget is to search e-journals The wall looks like and browse the Facebook wall, course, subject guides from library and personal the library walls are also available
Customize Page Customize page is used to add widgets into user’s profile
Instant Messaging The widget is used for instant messaging with the library reference desk.
Subject/ Research Guide
Final Remarks • The personalized and customized profile for each user requires that the both of library and the faculty of applied science to identify the common custom fields for the common content types that will be added depending on the user profile. • The current successful implementation of some library widgets at the applied science portal has provided more opportunities for other library services application to be introduced and used by applied science portal users in the near future.
