Carolyn Hansen, Metadata Librarian, and her colleague Sean Crowe, Electronic Resources Librarian at University of Cincinnati Libraries, will describe their experiences of transitioning from cataloging to metadata, which is a common occurrence for catalogers these days. As materials and projects are brought online as well as born digital, traditional cataloging sometimes does not suffice the needs of these types of collections. Their presentation is titled "From Cataloging to Metadata: Difference in Scope, Skills, and Standards" and will focus on UC's conversion of over 9,000 Dublin Core records to the VRA standard, illustrating the differences between traditional cataloging and metadata projects with technical details at the forefront. Presentation at ALA Midwinter Conference, CaMMS Cataloging Norms Interest Group, Jan. 25, 2014

In a media landscape dominated by polarizing rhetoric, writing instructors have a renewed
responsibility to thoughtfully engage students. Utilizing a multimodal assignment, Rogerian and
Toulmin argument models can be applied and assessed by students in real-world and online
settings to foster empathy for opposing viewpoints by analyzing assumptions.
This demonstration focuses on using free verse poetry to strengthen L2 writers’ interpretive and invention skills. Drawing on the recent “translingual” turn, it explores poetry as a bridge to academic writing for language learners. Participants will read a short contemporary poem and compose their own “connotative definition,” using brainstorming exercises.
This session examines reading in the composition classroom building from a qualitative analysis of student annotations. Participants will explore social annotation tools that facilitate collaborative, strategic reading among students and instructor feedback on students’ reading strategies. Participants are encouraged to bring an electronic device to participate in this demonstration.
The Multi-Genre Research Project: Teaching Students the Research Skills for Academic Writing will discuss ways to help students become more flexible writers by developing an awareness of how genre works. According to scholars who study students' ability to transfer knowledge from one context to another, genre knowledge, among other skills, helps students analyze and adapt to various writing situations.
