Past Midwinter Discussions

  • 2015, Chicago: The Role of Creativity in Librarianship. This discussion focused on how creativity influences our work as librarians. As librarians we are often called upon to find alternative solutions to question and problems. Sometimes we even have to be a little entrepreneurial to create new services or improve existing ones. This session allowed librarians to share how creativity influences their work.
  • 2014, Philadelphia: In 2004, the annual program for WGSS focused on digital collections for research.  Ten years later, conversations about collections have evolved into discussion about digital humanities, digital scholarship, and open access with their own sets of best practices, theories, and subfield.  What are the roles of librarians in providing leadership in these areas?   How sustainable are our current models?
