Helicopter Librarians: Expect the Unexpected | Backtalk - Library Journal

Helicopter Librarians: Expect the Unexpected | Backtalk - Library Journal | Social Media in Libraries | Scoop.it

By Felicia A. Smith:

"Current students have different expectations and are used to a greater level of support. This is an opportunity to transform the profession regardless of emerging technology trends or fiscal constraints. This Helicopter Librarians approach does not require intensive training; that is why I do not include any checklists to follow. I am not developing any metrics; and I am not advocating for data-driven anything! This is a holistic approach to a human interaction based on individuality and genuine compassion.
A study based on the 2007 National Survey of Student Engagement reports that, contrary to popular belief; children of Helicopter Parents excelled in deeper learning activities and reported higher levels of educational gains as well as greater satisfaction with their college experience. The prevailing perception of Helicopter Parents is that their over-involvement is detrimental to their child’s growth. However, such support appeared to be welcomed by most students and actually beneficial to their overall well-being. Thus the first positive attribute of Helicopter Parents is the fact that they are sincerely concerned with the success of their children. This genuine concern has to be shared by Helicopter Librarians."

Doug Mirams's curator insight, December 19, 2012 9:38 AM

Great way to engage with your clients, a Pinterest Party. Here is how Central City Public Library, Nebraska, describes it:

"One popular event is the monthly Pinterest parties.

Lee said the library has a Pinterest account where staff members “pin” interesting crafting ideas and recipes. About once a month, a craft is chosen and a message is posted on Facebook telling patrons what materials to bring to the library to make the craft.

Tonight’s Pinterest party includes a cookie swap using recipes found on Pinterest. On Jan. 7, patrons will learn to make wire-wrapped jewelry, and last month they made wreaths. Lee said because participants bring their own supplies, the class cost is very low, usually around $1."

Social media is no longer just about Facebook. Social media is splintering and fragmenting as more users find increased activity about their interests and passions residing on other social networks, such as Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter.
