|Schedule of Classes for Summer
2003 - Tentative|
Summer Session courses must be self supporting. Therefore, courses must have a minimum of 12 to 14 students as REGISTERED and PAID participants before we can offer the course. We urge you to contact your advisor, then check with the LIS office for course codes information. This will help us estimate the number of students interested in the courses, and give a warning if a course may need to be cancelled.

they address emerging issues.
LIS 694 Enhancing Library Advocacy Through Technology
Advocacy, the art of communicating a clear message to a particupar stakeholder group, is based on understanding a particular issue or need, and creating a presentation or message that addressess that need. Library advocacy is particularly crucial in these times of shrinking budgets and decision makers' lack of awareness of what libraries might do for their communities and organizaitons. Technology can be a critical tool in the communication process. Librarians, as information professionals, must be proficient in using available technologies to "tell their story" and win support for their programs and services. In this course, participants will become familiar with strategic planning for specific advocacy targets and design simple presentations using several technology applications including Microsoft Office tools and simple HTML development.

LIS 693 Cartographic and Geographic Resources
This class is intended for public, academic and school librarians who need
to develop modest map collections and services. Participants will be introduced
to a wide variety of affordable government and commercial maps, atlases, and
geographic reference sources. A significant part of the course will explore
web-based geographic resources. Laboratory exercises will provide participants
the chance to learn and/or improve on map-reading skills necessary to evaluate
and use commonly available maps and geographic resources. Lectures will cover
a wide variety of maps and geographic tools. Exercises and laboratories, however,
will focus on three themes pertaining to Hawaii: current printed cartographic
and geographic resources; digital geographic materials available online; and
historic cartographic materials of Hawaii.

LIS 693 Literacy Issues in Libraries
This course addresses current literacy issues facing librarians. Each type
of literacy will consider the theoretical underpinnings and context within education
and librarianship, will model best practices in library settings, and identify
possible future directions. Major threads will include information, technology,
reading, media, and visual literacies.
