This poster will discuss an application of the knowledge practices of the ACRL framework through the visual concept mapping process as part of the search strategy assignments during Information Literacy sessions.

Due to the versatility and adaptability of the concept map, it can be successfully applied in a variety of the educational contexts. This poster will demonstrate how visual concept mapping, being an authentic and meaningful learning tool, can be integrated into the search strategy assignment, allowing students to express their research topic more creatively, thus facilitating more productive searching techniques and iterative process of knowledge construction.

Stories of starvation, assimilation, and cultural and physical genocide towards Indigenous children, who were government-mandated participants in the Indian Residential School system, were laid painfully bare.
In our collective sadness, and, for many, shock, our Nation was asked to bear witness to this truth and to begin a journey toward reconciliation. With foundation-building work needed on personal, spiritual, and professional levels for many information professionals about Indigenous histories and current contexts, Indigenous librarians and archivists are increasingly called upon to assist their colleagues in learning what public schools previously failed to teach.
This conversation will connect concepts of allyship to examples from practice so that participants can begin to support and extend the capacity of Indigenous colleagues from a place of humble understanding and respect. The work of the X wi7 x wa Library and the Indigitization program offer insights to the work of Indigenization and Decolonization, as well as a pathway for the work of Reconciliation in library settings.

Developing Research Training Services at Asbury Seminary Research services is a crucial component in theological librarianship and providing those services becomes continually more challenging as curriculum shifts away from research papers and toward reflection papers. At Asbury, we have been working to develop research training and services to a wide variety of students on-campus, off-campus, masters, doctoral as well as faculty both local and international. Come and listen to the strategies used to develop, market and provide these services to a diverse group of patrons.

Streaming Video for Theological Education Recent research reveals significant differences between theological libraries and other academic libraries in the licensing and use of streaming video. The comparable trends raises significant questions about support of digital pedagogy in theological education, as well as the potential for new products that meet the curricular priorities and budgetary capacities of theological libraries. This session will review recent research and identify opportunities for licensing of streaming videos among Atla institutions.
Speakers JW John Weaver. Friday June 14, am - am Port Alberni. A perennial discussion is the future of cataloging in the library profession. Are catalogers going the way of the blacksmith because computers and automation are changing what is expected and what is capable of being achieved in this area of library work? Are catalogers clinging to methods and expectations that are disappearing?
Are directors simply waiting for catalogers to retire so that they can replace them by someone who isn't such a Luddite? Are directors expecting a guaranteed future or one that remains elusive because technology doesn't have all the answers to providing the access librarians would like to see? Are catalogers and directors moving in irreconcilable opposite directions? This panel presentation by two directors and a cataloger will consider these hot-button issues, trying to throw more light and less heat on the discussion, attempting to find a middle ground between perceptions and realities that will enable us all, catalogers and directors, to move our profession forward.

Global Learning and the Myth of Borders: Examining Theological Education and Librarianship through World-Systems Theory In the last few years, the language of "globalism" and "borders" has been pervasive in the narratives of politics and social commentary. Despite the flurry of opinions, debates, and claims of "fake news," those who are practitioners in theological education broadly speaking, and theological librarianship, specifically, recognize the deep and profound reality of global education, and the impact that it has on both domestic students and the international representation of students and faculty as one community of learners, practitioners, and seekers.
In this paper, we will look at how the language of "globalism" has been expressed both in popular terms and theological terms; how the evocation of "borders" and "boundaries" is not a new idea, but an ancient trope reused throughout history for steering narrative claims; and how world-systems theory enables a broader understanding of theological education and librarianship.
