Why specific problems persist? When systems fail to respond? What happens? This sub-theme will try to collect technical service challenges that they represent and examples of how these can be met. Lessons shall be earned from each. Workshop attendees shall re-check development policies and conduct a regular review progress over management of integrated library systems, discovery tools, and institutional repositories including managing metadata and normalization rules in order to prevent similar failures to come.

Parallel Session on MARC Utilization and Content
August 20 Thursday 8:00-10:00 BREAKOUT SESSION AVR 1
DESCRIPTION The emergence of the MARC record in the late 1960s enabled a new era for sharing bibliographic data. MARC provides a standard record structure for encoding and exchanging bibliographic data. The MARC record itself has evolved in the past 30 years into a complex encoding scheme with very rich content designation to accommodate bibliographic data for many different formats of materials (Moen, Miksa, Marsh, 2005).

DESCRIPTION Authentic learning typically focuses on real-world, complex problems and their solutions, using role-playing exercises, problem-based activities, case studies, and participation in virtual communities of practice(Lombardi, 2007). This positions libraries and their personnel to engage in the process of working towards the understanding of a resolution of a problem. This session’s theme will stimulate problem-based learning which entail a different library experience both for the clients and the staff of the library. The expert will introduce PBL as a reader service tool for delivering information literacy and course-related library instruction. Also, the facilitator shall encourage librarians to collaborate with teachers on providing quality library experiences while clients acquire information-gathering skills.

Parallel Session on Operating an Archives Shop
August 20 Friday 10:00-12:00 BREAKOUT SESSION AVR 1

Apart from the normal advice on how to live a healthy lifestyle, a connection between health and productivity in the library workplace will be discussed. Participants will gain knowledge and tools on how to improve their own health and how this will improve their productivity. For libraries, it means greater outputs and more satisfaction and possibly faster promotions and rewarding incentives for librarians. This could result in better equipped personnel and a higher level of motivation towards their careers. In the end, when each individual improves his own lifestyle and institutions benefits from employing more balanced people.
