FRBR Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Las Vegas Convention Center
N263
Description :

The FRBR Interest Group program will consist of two presentations about how FRBR can be used in finding film/video items and the use of FRBR in preservation management.

First, Kelley McGrath’s presentation will describe common problems that users encounter when searching for film and video in libraries. She will discuss how the FRBR model provides a framework to make finding moving images materials easier and more effective for users while also providing back-end efficiencies in data creation and management. She will look at some ways in which the orthodox FRBR model and RDA's interpretation of it don't work well for film and video. Finally, she will show what a FRBR-inspired end-user discovery interface for moving images might look like and will elucidate steps to move towards this vision.

Second, Jacob Nadal’s presentation will propose a way of using FRBR to coordinate preservation goals among libraries and to clarify the goals and expected outcomes of preservation and conservation efforts. Special attention will be paid to two areas where frameworks for this kind of coordination are needed: managing regional print archives, and the role of digitization in preservation management.

Kelley McGrath is Metadata Management Librarian at the University of Oregon. She is an experienced media cataloger and an active member of Online Audiovisual Catalogers (OLAC). She served as chair of OLAC's Cataloging Policy Committee for several years and is currently OLAC's liaison to CC:DA. She is interested in the potential of the FRBR model, structured data and faceted interfaces for improving access to moving images.

Jacob Nadal is the Executive Director of ReCAP, The Research Collections and Preservation Consortium, which provides long term collections care and access services for the libraries and archives of Columbia, Princeton, and the New York Public Library. Jake has led preservation efforts at Indiana University, NYPL, and UCLA, and prior to joining ReCAP, served as Director of Library and Archives for the Brooklyn Historical Society. Within ALA, he has served as Chair of PARS and co-chaired the working group that wrote ALA’s Definitions of Digital Preservation.

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.

10:30am - 11:30am
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.

Librarians as Digital Leaders: Collaborating on the Development and Use of Digitized Collections Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N252

In this session participants will hear from several successful collaborations funded through IMLS that highlight promising practices for the wider dissemination of digitized collections. Panelists will share tools they leveraged to bring their materials to researchers, students, and the general public, as well as evidence of how these collections are being used in unanticipated ways.

Patron Driven Acquisition – Is it good for Video? Exhibitor session Las Vegas Convention Center
N236
Description :

Colleen Cleary (Library Resource Services Manager) from the Queensland University of Technology and Alison Bates (Collection Provision Manager) from La Trobe University, two of the earliest adopters of PDA for video globally and the authors of "Possible, inevitable or fait accompli? An analysis of streaming video acquisition, acceptance and use in higher education".
Cleary and Bates' presentation presents the findings from their 2-year study on “Patron Driven Acquisition” (PDA) as a model for the acquisition of online video. Today, PDA has become a standard model of acquisition in the eBook market, more effectively aligning spend with use and increased return on investment (ROI), yet remains a vastly under-utilized model of acquisition for online video.

QUT and La Trobe launched a research project in collaboration with Kanopy to pilot and explore various models for the PDA of video. In the session, Cleary and Bates will present the findings from that study, incorporating the rich user statistics and survey data and building upon a peer-reviewed research paper released this year.

The final part of the session will explore the type of metrics that can be relied on for assessing ROI across different resources (DVD, online video, ebook), and presents some fascinating results from their campus experiences.
