Follow-Up – Federated Searching Case Study: NELLCO

Roberta Woods, Assistant Professor & Reference and Electronic Resources Librarian, Franklin Pierce Law Center Library

As a follow-up to the Spring NHLA program, Roberta Woods offers a look inside NELLCO's Universal Search Solution (US) since the launch. The US is an alternative to federated search that enables participating libraries to search their catalog, select free websites, and proprietary databases from a single search box. The search interface was launched earlier this year to NELLCO's beta–test libraries. This program will showcase the US and discuss the project in detail

Through a grant from the IMLS (Institute for Museum and Library Services) NELLCO created the US. The US is an open–source, standards–based search solution that indexes content similar to enterprise search solutions. Visit the US blog at http://blog.nellco.org for more information on the Universal Search Solution.

Pain in the Brain: Teen Library (Mis)Behavior 101

Beth Gallaway, Library Consultant/Trainer, Information Goddess Consulting

They love to challenge authority and are notoriously moody – are we talking about teens, or two–year–olds? Teen brain growth development rivals that of toddler years – maybe that explains the attitude and characteristics of this historically underserved age group. Discover the underlying biological and physical changes that may impact why teens act the way they do, and learn how librarians can address patron behavior issues in a way that will develop relationships with young adults. By the end of this session, participants will be able to name three changes the teen brain undergoes during adolescence, identify teen developmental needs and assets, distinguish between library behaviors that are merely disruptive/annoying vs. harmful/dangerous, and learn how to apply tips for nipping negative behavior in the bud.
