Report on the Fifth Carnegie Library Leadership Academy

The penultimate Carnegie Library Leadership Academy in a series of six was successfully hosted by the Centre for the African Library Leadership at The Villas Hotel and Conference Centre in Pretoria, from 4-18 November 2011.

The group of 20 participants were selected from 33 applications, comprising 12 academic librarians, seven public librarians and one candidate from the National Library of South Africa. The participants represented 7 different provinces, i.e. Gauteng North, Gauteng South, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, North West and Western Cape and for the first time also the Free State. Four staff members from the University of Pretoria Library Services have also been selected for participation: Tertia Coetzee (Senior Information Specialist, Veterinary Science Library), Gerda Ehlers (Learning Centre Co-ordinator, Merensky Library), Heila Maré (Information Specialist, Merensky Library) and Mmakgoshi Reetseng (Cataloguer, Merensky Library).

This fun loving group of library professionals distinguished them from the onset in a very unique and surprising way: with a love of singing they would form a choir to either celebrate, to show gratitude, to get rid of stress or just to have fun! They also followed a strict daily routine of early morning jogging before the start of each day’s programme. During and after the two-week period they were able to build a dynamic team spirit in support of each other and their commitment to making a difference at their own institutions and also in the broader South African Library and Information Services (LIS) sector. This was also demonstrated in their active and creative participation in social media and their own Facebook page.

The programme covered practical and theoretical aspects of various topics which were presented in different learning formats, such as lectures, workshops, interactive discussions and individual and group tasks.

As part of the programme the participants had the opportunity to attend the official opening of the new Research Commons and Leadership and Training Centre at the University of Pretoria Merensky II Library. The participants were privileged to engage with Dr Rookaya Bawa and Dr Omotade Aina from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, who both believe that libraries (and librarians) are key agents of change within societies.


CLLA5 participants with Dr Rookaya Bawa and Dr Omotade Aina from the Carnegie Corporation of New York

Vibrant and knowledgeable speakers, course leaders and facilitators included experts from the LIS sector, the academic sector and the corporate environment.

Presenters from the LIS sector included Mr John Tsebe (National Librarian), Ms Ujala Satgoor (LIASA President-Elect), Dr Buhle Mbambo-Thata (IFLA Governing Board) and several speakers from the University of Pretoria Library Services. The academic sector was represented by lecturers from the University of Pretoria, the Cape Peninsula University of Technology and the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Various presenters from the corporate environment also contributed to the overall success of the programme.

The success of the Academy is evident from the views and comments of the participants:

Joanne Arendse (Branch Librarian, CPUT, Wellington) – The Academy has been a life-changing journey of self discovery. The first class training will allow me to make a difference in my future endeavours in the library environment.
Samantha Bennett (e-Resources Librarian, SU) – Every presentation, interaction and activity provided a personal or professional learning opportunity which I will cherish for life.
Tertia Coetzee (Senior Information Specialist, UPLS, Veterinary Science Library) – Participation in the Academy made me discover qualities in myself that I did not know before, helped me to discover excellence in fellow library professionals and restored my faith in South African diversity!
Sam Cooper (Branch Librarian, TCLIS, Waverley Library) – The academy was a truly inspirational experience and a great gift which will influence all aspects of my future career.
Thulas Dumakude (Senior Librarian, eThekwini Municipal Libraries) – I can now differentiate between a leader and a manager and recognise where I fit in.
Gerda Ehlers (Learning Centre Co-ordinator, UPLS Merensky Library) – I will never be the same person. I have grown on both a personal and professional level. I am a better equipped library leader.
Ronel Jacobs (Senior Co-ordinator, Libraries & Education, Mangaung Metro Municipality) – I will take with me the strengths of the unique individuals that journeyed with me and I will live the experience of the Academy to ensure positive change and growth within the LIS sector.
Zuki Ketiwe (Information Librarian, UFS) – The Academy taught me to be a proactive and innovative leader with a vision.
Heila Maré (Information Specialist, UPLS, Merensky Library) – The opportunities to learn about new technologies and new developments in librarianship and network with a variety of librarians were invaluable.
Margaret Matobako (Co-ordinator: Library Services, Mangaung Metro Municipality) – The Academy transformed me into a person who has confidence and courage to lead others.
Boni Molupi (Assistant Director, FS Provincial Library Service) – I have been blessed to be a part of the Academy. I will cherish the experience as being the best of my professional life.
Mathew Moyo (Information and User Services Librarian, UFH) – The Academy encouraged me to build an educated, caring, proactive profession and to lobby for adequate funding and legislation.
Nikki Potgieter (Principal Librarian, SANB, NLSA) – Through attendance of the Academy, I now have the strength, the courage and the insight to sometimes walk the road alone, to make my vision a reality.
Siza Radebe (Library Manager, Durban University of Technology) – The Academy provided a complete solution for personal and professional growth.
Maropene Ramabina (Reference Librarian, UNIVEN) – The Academy inspired me in many ways. I am now a converted and activist librarian. I am a ‘born again’ librarian.
Mmakgoshi Reetseng (Cataloguer, UPLS, Merensky Library) – The Academy was a wonderful experience, an eye opener, a wake-up call, a reminder to step out of my comfort zone and make a difference.
Kathryn Siller (Branch Librarian, TCLIS, Irene Library) – I will strive to live the lessons I have learnt at the Academy. I am standing at the same professional road I have been walking on, but now the journey is a completely different one.
Ndumie Sinyenyeko-Sayo (Specialist Librarian, UJ) – The programme was well structured and of a high standard.
Manare Tshenye (Acting University Librarian, NWU). My expectations were exceeded. The LIS sector in South Africa is alive and moving forward.
Dairmaid Wessels (District Manager, CoCT Library and Information Services) – The skills I gained from the knowledgeable and passionate presenters will assist me in being a motivated and inspired future leader.

Library Services at Weskoppies Hopspital: The new kid in the Health Sciences clan

The library facility at Weskoppies hospital (about 8km from the Medical library – close to the Pilditch Stadium - and halfway to Kalafong) was established many years ago as part of the Transvaal Department of Health. Due to neglect, it unfortunately turned into a store room for old, outdated books and furniture like beds and ward screens. We had the opportunity to once again turn this store room into an active and dynamic facility.

The goal was to establish an information centre for udergraduate and postgraduate students, staff of the Department of Psychiatry and the Psychologists at Weskoppies Hospital. At this information centre we want to provide a professional information service by the Information Specialist from the Medical Library on a regular basis. This should include support in research and decision making, and tailor-made training to clients in the use of appropriate information literacy tools.

The Faculty was worried about the cost of the project, but we convinced them that the facility can be transformed with soap, water, some serious cleaning and a lot of determination. Me and Abel Maboko started the whole transformation by spending two mornings in November 2011 in the library to identify and sort out the mess. Books and journals were on the floor and on the shelves and had to be sorted out one by one. We discovered a few gems in the (mainly) rubbish, e.g. first editions from 1897 and the early 1900’s which will be on display in the library. Hospital staff then removed all the books and journals from the library and this was followed by a huge cleaning effort by some of the local cleaners. Once cleaned, some furniture from Merensky’s store room made a big difference to the room.

   
Before and after

The Faculty is responsible for the IT infrastructure and computers and as soon as security is in place, 7 new computers will be installed. The Information Specialist for Psychiatry visits the library every second Friday. Services available are follow-ups on emails, attending academic discussions and literature searches, and training in and marketing of new products. New books are available and can be checked out, returned and renewed by staff and registrars, users are assisted with literature studies and referencing of protocols, articles, theses and dissertations, content pages of current journals are provided.

The infrasructure for the computers is already available and the students access the services with their laptops. The library will be managed virtually and no books or journals (apart from the old books discovered and donated) will be housed in the library. Electronic resources are available and new packages are currently available on a trial bases and will probably be subscribed to in the near future.

This is a true opportunity for embedded librarianship and it is a priviledge to provide a personal service to one of the best departments in the Medical Faculty concerning research outputs.

News from Special Collections

As always, we have only good news to impart.

With the whole of the old Africana collection safely catalogued on UPExplore, we turned our attention to the several individual collections that the Library acquired in the 1920’s and 1930’s.

  First choice fell on the Du Plessis collection, because of its size (just over 4,000 volumes divided in two sections), its relative importance as an Africana collection containing many rare and valuable works and its stature as a cornerstone of the University’s heritage document collections. This task was part of the retrospective cataloguing project started in May 2008 which now (2nd April) stands at 29, 177.

All 1 699 titles in the so-called “A” component of the Du Plessis collection have now been catalogued on WorldCat/UPExplore. They are identified by the prefix ZPA. As part of the exercise they were provided with uniform labels to replace the original hand written inking on the spines.

Prof. Johannes du Plessis (1868-1935) was a theologian at the University of Stellenbosch, well known for his book Thrice through the dark continent, describing his three extensive journeys through Africa in the years 1913-1916. The Afrikaans version was published as Een toer door Afrika, a book, incidentally, which Mikro’s well known character Meraai considered to be the only appropriate reading for a widow of irreproachable morals. Both versions can be consulted in Special Collections.

Prof du Plessis was a champion of the missionary cause in Africa and published several works on the subject. Eighteen of his works are held by Special Collections. In the late 1920’s his adherence to modern science (including the theory of evolution) brought him into a doctrinal conflict with the Dutch Reformed Church and he was expelled from the Stellenbosch seminary. Although he won his court case against the Church in 1931, he was not re-appointed.

The University of Pretoria purchased Prof Du Plessis’ library in 1939 for the sum of 3 000 pounds.

One of the gems in the Du Plessis collection is now exactly 200 years old.

It is a handwritten book entitled A journal of a voyage to and from the Cape of Good Hope, with some sketches of the interior of that colony. The author, who also made his/her own sketches, is unknown. Many of the sketches are in colour, giving one a vivid idea of life aboard ship in 1812.

   

Because it is unpublished and seems never to have been replicated, the book is not to be found in the usual Africana catalogues and its value cannot be determined. Its age, uniqueness and subject matter might make it the most valuable book in the library.

Information literacy training of the first year students

The beginning of the year is always a very busy time for the Learning Centre. The Learning Centre staff will remember 2012 Welcoming Day and Training Program as a very successful one. It took place during the orientation week from 28 January to 7 February 2012.

Seven library staff members including Gerda Ehlers, Ephenia Pue, Sindy Hlabangwane, Adam Munoka, Makhanani Mashaba, Mmakgoshi Reetseng and Fundiswa Buthelezi took the first year students and their parents on tours through the library. A gazebo was erected outside at the entrance of the library, where inquiries concerning the Library and its services were answered. Students and parents were very impressed with the library services and facilities.

The planning of this training program and the development of products started last year already while volunteers and representatives of the different Faculty Libraries attended several brainstorming sessions. Bettie de Kock worked very hard on the development of the Survivor Map, the game and the PowerPoint presentation for the training sessions.

This was the first year that we had the opportunity to use the IT or CIL labs, where many staff members were involved in the training as trainers or floor walkers.


Students playing the Game

Over 6000 tired but enthusiastic students were trained. Afterwards the students were requested to evaluate the training. The majority of the students gave very positive feedback. They said the sessions were brilliant, excellent, 2 thumbs up, enriching, an extraordinary experience, exceptionally engaging, life saving, classy, an eye-opener, insightful, relevant, and well explained. The majority said the game was fun and awesome.

Staff members noticed a clear difference between students who did and did not attend the training sessions. This is not only an opportunity for the library to market its products, but also to make the students aware of the library and more importantly to empower the students to become enthusiastic clients of the library who know how to obtain information. The Library and its staff once again can be proud of another very successful achievement.

Springer hosts a workshop in the new auditorium, 28 February 2012

The Open Scholarship Office organized a workshop for postgraduate students and researches in collaboration with the publisher Springer on 28 February. The programme included the following topics:

- Introduction and brief demonstration of the Springer Tools available through the University of Pretoria (SpringerLink, AuthorMapper, Exemplar, Author Academy), presented by Diana Alkema, Senior Account Development Specialist at Springer (http://hdl.handle.net/2263/18313);

- Publishing scientific research e.g. why authors should publish, where to publish, how to structure an article; Learning from peer reviewers; What is Open Access publishing, Open Access vs traditional publishing; What does an Impact Factor mean and what does it tell you etc, presented by Jacco Flipsen, Editorial Director at Springer (http://hdl.handle.net/2263/18314).

This event was very well attended by almost 100 researchers, indicating that there is a need for more information sessions such as this.

Some of the feedback received by the attendees: “I attended the 12-2 pm session. It was great to know the tools that Springer has that can facilitate searches, networking, publishing etc. The author mapper tool and others will be very useful for me. Thanks Jacco and Diana.”

“Timely for me; I wish I had such a session as a starting postgraduate student.”

“Thanks so much for the publishing session today, good information”

“This was in interesting overview of the company and its services. Thank you.”

UPSpace 1.7.2 up and running!

Our “new” look and feel, thanks to Christelle’s contribution!

A little bit of background...
As from October 2010, Leonard is running UPSpace on our own server, and in September 2011, we were able to migrate from DSpace 1.4.2 to DSpace 1.6.2.

And then....
New developments and our involvement in exciting projects lead us to consider to upgrading to DSpace 1.7.2, and this process was set in motion in January 2012.

Team...
By sharing information gathered from our IRCoP, consultant Shaun Donovan was able to assist us. While Leonard and Shaun were busy with the upgrading, Christelle designed the web page and we were able to launch UPSpace 1.7.2 on 26 March 2012.

What next....
As always with an upgrade, new functionalities are there to explore and enable us to proceed with new projects on UPSpace. So be alert for new developments in the future.

Splash!
Enjoy our “new” UPSpace!

Open Access workshop at the RETIG branch, KwaZulu-Natal

Elsabé Olivier presented an Open Access workshop at the EG Malherbe Library, Howard College Campus, University of KwaZulu-Natal, on the 24 of February 2012 for the RETIG KwaZulu-Natal branch from 9:30 to 15:00. The theme of the workshop was "Open Access - a practical view on implementation” and it was attended by 18 delegates from mostly Durban University of Technology and University of KwaZulu-Natal, but even included a professor and Deputy Dean of DUT.

The main objective of this workshop was to raise awareness of Open Access and to highlight how the sharing of research materials can benefit continents, research institutions, researchers, journal publishers as well as the society as a whole. It was an opportunity for librarians, repository managers and Open Scholarship managers to learn first-hand how Open Access is practically implemented at an academic institution. Attendees communicated and discussed their needs and concerns regarding Open Access implementation at their institutions. The workshop took the form of presentations, demonstrations and practical exercises and every attendee had the opportunity to list all the topics she/he would like to be covered. The presentations covered the following topics: Overview on Open Access, Implementing and advocacy for Open Access at the University of Pretoria and Copyright and Open Access and each delegate received a certificate of attendance at the end.

Some of the feedback received:

“I enjoyed the workshop and it was very informative.”

“Thanks very much. I enjoyed your workshop greatly.”

“Many thanks once again for the excellent workshop last week, and for the copies of your presentations. As I indicated in my feedback, I found the workshop extremely valuable, and will be able to use what I learned to advise and guide academics in our faculty far more effectively than before.”

“Presenter was enthusiastic, professional and knowledgeable. Slides were succinct and easily visible and not filled with too much text. Presentation flowed smoothly and easily. Just wished we had a whole week for this workshop”

“It was very informative and we had a lot of background concerning the OA movement. We have ideas on how to promote OA in our institutions. Most of the things were clarified.”

All in all it was a wonderful networking event and enjoyed by both presenter and attendees!
