What’s new for Fall 2015 @ the Library

Welcome back!

While you have been away this summer library faculty and staff have new seating 1been busy working on many projects both inside and outside of the Library.  Here’s what we’ve been up to.

In the Library we continually review and evaluate the print collections to ensure materials are relevant, updated, and accessible. One of the benefits of this effort is that we’ve been able to open up space and add new seating for students.  These seats and more will be filled come next week.  It’s a little change that took a lot of effort but the pay off has been well worth it.

As part of our ongoing process of continuous improvement of services and facilities we’ve relocated our service desks this summer.  The Circulation desk and its functions are now consolidated on the 2nd (main) floor while the Reference desk has moved to the 3rd floor to put the librarians closer to the resources they use.

Throughout it all we’ve been planning and developing some exciting new projects for Native Hawaiian students, working to extend our collaborations across the campus and throughout the UH system, and developing a community outreach program targeting keiki in the community.   To learn more about these projects, please read on.

Hawaiʻi-Pacific Resource Room:  In Fall 2015, the Library will debut the Hawaiʻi Pacific Resource Room, located in LC 203 (formerly the Reference, Research & Reading Room). Read more…

Keiki Reading Program:  To expand outreach to elementary schools in our community and build valuable relationships with various departments on campus, the Leeward CC Library will be debuting a Keiki Reading Program in November 2015.  Read more…

Open Educational Resources Initiative:  A May 2015 survey of OERnearly 1,000 Leeward students found that 55% have NOT purchased a textbook due to cost and 58% use textbooks costs in their decision to register for classes.   Read more…

Seed Share:  The Library is excited to unveil their new collection of FREE SEEDS for Leeward CC student, staff, faculty, and community patrons!  Read more…

Collaboration Mapping Project:  Leah Gazan and Natalie Kahn are exploring the use of data visualization software and platforms to highlight the Library’s existing cross-campus relationships and help identify new opportunities for collaboration.  Read more…

New E-resources:  A 52,000 title ebook collection and an interactive learning platform which guides students through the research process and helps them complete research paper assignments.  Read more…

New Library website in development:  Over the Spring and Summer, we AVS close uphave been working diligently to plan the information architecture of our future website, familiarize ourselves with the capabilities of the new platform, and to bring our vision to life.  Read more…

New Pay-for-Print System:  A new system for printing in the Library and Learning Commons will be installed by the start of the academic year.  Students will release print jobs by scanning their Leeward ID card which will be linked to individual print/copy accounts.  A self-service kiosk for adding value to accounts will be available.

The Library’s mission is to provide an information-rich, learner-centered environment fostering discovery, critical thinking, and innovation in support of academic achievement, student success, and lifelong learning.  While our services and resources will always be focused on supporting classroom instruction, in recent years, we have acquired new resources that support the personal and intellectual growth and well-being of the entire campus.  If you haven’t taken a look at what we have to offer, here’s what you’re missing-

Our Bestsellers collection is for dedicated fans of the printed book.  Go to the 3rd floor to browse this collection. Suggest an author and we’ll be on the lookout for new releases.  Submit your requests here.
  • E-book enthusiasts:  Our Overdrive e-book platform is optimized for tablets, e-readers, and smartphones.  Find a variety of personal growth, health and well-being, bestsellers, and Dummies titles here.  This is a growing collection and we are always open to suggestions.  Submit your requests here.
  • Documentary lovers:  The Kanopy video platform provides online streaming access to thousands of full-length documentaries, foreign films and classic movies.  New releases abound!
  • Data nerds:  Statista offers over 1 million statistics from over 18,000 sources.  Charts, graphs, and tables are exportable in several formats.  Illustrate your reports and posters with ready-made infographics.
  • IT experts:  Enhance your skills and retain your certifications by using our Safari Online collection of IT and computer science manuals.  Includes desktop and web applications, computer programming, digital media, and more.
