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.

E-Books: Discovering the Virtual Backlog Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N231/233
Description :

The book truck waiting to be cataloged is gone, but backlogs are not; they’re just harder to find. E-book packages can be accompanied by inaccurate title lists, front files, unavailable or poor quality MARC records, pre-published chapters, and other issues that complicate discovery and undermine the traditional technical services workflow. When this happens resources slip through the cracks creating a hidden virtual backlog. The creativity of today’s cataloger finds and makes discoverable these hidden materials.
