PRESENTATIONS

Federal Depository Management 101 – Marie Concannon, MU Libraries

This session will cover the basics of depository management, including how to use online tools to analyze your library’s receipts and adjust selections.  You’ll also learn proper weeding procedures, basic reference service and FDLP program requirements.

The Way We Work Now, Navigating the digital government information landscape - Virtual presentation by GPO Preservation Librarian David Walls

In a nation where an estimated 97% of newly-released government information is digital, is the role of the government information librarian headed toward obsolescence, or is it growing toward new significance in a dynamic information environment?  David Walls will discuss how the new world of digital government information offers a significant role for librarians.

 Walls bio: David Walls has 18 years’ experience as a preservation librarian preserving both tangible and digital information.  In 2010, he became GPO’s first preservation librarian, where he is responsible for developing preservation initiatives for the Federal Depository Library Program.

 

Using Government Sources for Business Information – Gwen Gray, MU Libraries

Gray bio: Gwen is the business, economics, and public policy librarian at the University of Missouri-Columbia Libraries.  She has an M.S. in library science from the University of Illinois-Urbana/Champaign.

 

No access to commercial legal databases? Do not worry; you can still assist non-lawyers - Tove Klovning, Washingington University Law Library

This presentation will demonstrate how you best can assist non-lawyers when your library does not have access to commercial legal databases.  Several free legal websites, legal portals and research guides will be explored during the presentation. The presenter will also talk about the difference between offering reference help and providing legal advice.

Klovning bio: As the Foreign/Comparative/International Law Librarian & Lecturer in Law, Tove oversees foreign, comparative and international law library services at Washington University School of Law. She also assists with legal research questions relating to the American legal system and oversees the library's US federal government document collection.

Missouri State Plan and other Statewide issues – Marie Concannon, MU Libraries

Marie will present the new Missouri State Plan which came as an outgrowth of the State-Focused Action Plan of 2012, review updates in the FDLP, and discuss other issues important to documents service in our state.

 

Who Moved My Statistics? - Barbara Rehkop, Washington University

In the wake of the demise of Statistical Abstracts as a government publication, ProQuest is offering an electronic version of it, as well as a previous product, Statistical Insights.  We will briefly explore both products for comparison.

Rehkop bio: Barbara has been a government documents librarian for almost 18 years, first at St. Louis Public Library and now at Washington University in St. Louis.  The regional-level collection of documents relating to the civil rights movement of the 1950’s through the 1970’s, as well as documents related to the Post Office, are held at Washington University. Washington University also serves as the Sub-Regional for the St. Louis metropolitan area and received the 2012 Depository Library of the Year Award from GPO. 

 

Providing Access to Your Government Documents – Felicity Dykas, MU Libraries

We will review the FDLP requirements for providing access to government documents and discuss ways depositories can meet those requirements via purchase of records, and single-item cataloging.  She will also present information on GPO cataloging tools useful in keeping records up-to-date. 

 Dykas bio: Felicity Dykas is Head of the Catalog Department at the University of Missouri, Columbia, and is a member of GODORT.
