Brown Bag Session on "The Future of Public Services "
The LAUC-LA Program Committee, on behalf of the LAUC-LA Executive Board and the LAUC-LA Committee on Library Plans and Policies, will be hosting a brown bag discussion on Monday, August 13, in the "Green Room" (Room 1230) of Schoenberg Hall, noon to 1:30 PM. Lemon bars will be served! (and other refreshments, too).
The objective is to gather feedback from the LAUC-LA membership in advance of the joint SOPAG-HOPS Workshop on this topic, taking place in Oakland on August 27th. Each of UCLA's workshop attendees will be at the brown bag: AUL Terry Ryan (SOPAG), Web Administrator John Wang, and AUL Sarah Watstein (HOPS).

Public Service Workshop
Questions for LAUC/LA BBL
· What are the major public service issues affecting the UC libraries?
· Are there initiatives HOPS should pursue in support of advancing diverse new methods of delivering services through such avenues as
o social networking tools
o delivery of services via a variety of communication tools and
o integration of library-supported electronic tools into campus learning environments?
· To what extent have we advanced the incorporation of information literacy concepts into the UC curricula at all levels through emphasis on information literacy as a vital component of critical thinking skills and its relevancy to curricular outcomes?
o Is this something HOPS should prioritize now? If so, how?
o Or, how might we promote further development of expertise and awareness of IL concepts within the UC Libraries?
· What might we pursue collaboratively in order to advance the value of assessment and the application of service quality research methods to both inform decision making about public services within the UC libraries and to improve public service activities across the UC libraries?
