Collaborative Preservation, the UC/PLCH model
Holly Prochaska
Beginning in January of 2012, the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County (PLCH) and U. of Cincinnati Libraries (UCL) began a long-term collaboration to provide conservation and preservation treatments in an equally-managed, staffed, and equipped preservation lab situated on the U. of Cincinnati’s main campus.
Research on Mechanical System Shutdowns in Library Storage Areas
Jeremy Linden
Discuss methodologies and final results of a four-year experiment into the use of mechanical system shutdowns as a method to achieve significant reductions in energy use in library environments without compromising the preservation quality of collections environments. Research has shown that environmental conditions (temperature and relative humidity) are the most significant factors that impact the lifespan of cultural materials held by institutions. Mechanical systems in library environments are designed to run continuously in order to maintain the desired environmental conditions, resulting in high cost monetarily and in energy consumption. Altering these conditions through changes in HVAC operating schedules is a risk many institutions have been hesitant to take.

This four-year experiment was federally funded by the IMLS, and conducted by the Image Permanence Institute (IPI) at the Rochester Institute of Technology and their partner Peter Herzog, principal of Herzog/Wheeler & Associates. The experimental partners for the research were the Birmingham (AL) Public Library, Cornell, the New York Public Library, the UCLA, and Yale.

To foster these experiences we have developed My World, a unique programming series that teaches and empowers teens to create original visual art using new media. The hope is that this leads to career paths and hands-on learning opportunities that will open the world both locally and globally for teens.

Facilitating Teaching and Learning through the integration of Library Services and Course Management Exhibitor session Las Vegas Convention Center
S232
Description :

The changing ecosystem for scholarly communication drives libraries to look for new ways in which they can leverage their knowledge and expertise to better serve their communities and also to demonstrate value to their institutions. A tighter integration of library services with teaching and learning environments enables the library to be more visible to faculty and students, to optimize the use of the content it acquires and licenses, and to make informed decisions when developing its physical, digitized, and electronic collections.

The session will discuss the integration between course management systems, discovery systems, and library management systems. It will focus on cross-system workflows and optimal user experience for all stakeholders—faculty, students, and library staff. The work done by a Northwestern University Library team to integrate their Blackboard course management system and the Primo discovery system will be described.

Role of the Professional in Technical Services Interest Group Forum/Update/Assembly Las Vegas Convention Center
N109
Description :

Please join the RPLTS Interest Group for the following two presentations:

Spandex Positions - Librarian Flexibility in Technical Services
Jane Skoric, Cataloging and Metadata Librarian, Santa Clara University
How do we manage expanding positions? What to do when our roles are ambiguous? This presentation will give a realistic overview (with an optimistic spin) of one professional librarian's experiences in the technical services department of a mid-size academic library.
Two years ago I was hired into a "newly redefined position" as Cataloging and Metadata Librarian. The position I replaced was the Head of Technical Services. During the interview, a librarian stated, "But we need someone to manage the electronic resources. Who is going to do that work?" Thus, although the position announcement did not address several of the immediate needs of the technical services department, I chose to do so. My primary duties became the direct supervision of 6 support staff and the management of e-resources. Many other changes, including to whom I report, and other colleagues’ evolving roles have occurred in the past two years. As 21st century libraries evolve, how and by whom will the roles of professional librarians in technical services be defined?

Emerging Leadership roles for Technical Services Librarians and Training for professional and non-professional staff
Stephanie P. Hess, Electronic Resources Librarian, Binghamton University
Leadership roles in Technical Services are shifting as the potential of digital collections continues to open new career paths for Technical Services staff. Employment opportunities for metadata/ cataloging librarians, digitization experts, and electronic resources librarians now require skill sets that are prompting many of us to become project managers and/ or administrators of electronic resource management systems and next Gen catalogs. These emerging technologies entail extensive re-vamping of workflows and the introduction of more egalitarian training techniques that will reach library staff at all levels. This presentation will cover the nuances of leadership and include tips on “leading from where you are” as well as offer ideas regarding how to approach staff training and re-deploy existing staff when implementing new workflows within an evolving cross-departmental setting.

Code4ILL: How to Grow Your Own Innovation for Resource Sharing Program Las Vegas Convention Center
S228
Description :

Emerging technologies in ILL and Document Delivery now permit an unprecedented amount of scripting and coding development in libraries, but as resource sharing librarians we've only taken advantage of this opportunity in isolated pockets. Code4ILL is an attempt to showcase what our colleagues are up to, share out best hacks, and inspire attendees to take the spirit of innovation back to their own resource sharing operation. Our panel will feature speakers from three different resource sharing initiatives: Mark Sullivan, Executive Director of the IDS Project, will talk about the IDS Project, a nationally-recognized resource sharing initiative comprising over 70 libraries in New York State; Steelsen Smith, Fulfillment Systems Specialist from the Yale IT Enterprise Systems Group, will speak about the experience of being an embedded resource sharing guru in the Yale Library IT department; and Ryan Litsey (Document Delivery Librarian at Texas Tech University), Kenny Ketner (Software Development Manager at Texas Tech University), Joni Blake (Executive Director of the Greater Western Library Alliance), and Naomi Chow (Interlibrary Loan Librarian at University of Hawai’i at Mānoa) will talk about the Occam’s Reader Project, the first major collaboration between academic libraries and a major publisher in e-book resource sharing.
