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

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.

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.

This program discusses the building blocks of developing great collaborative spaces and explores how they can be the basis of greater community engagement.

Grow Forward: Professional Education Needs in the 21st Century Program Las Vegas Convention Center
S219
Description :

Twenty-first century libraries, archives, and museums (LAMs) face tremendous changes in how they select, acquire, preserve and provide access to content, especially born digital materials. Websites and social media, content management systems and online exhibits, digital preservation and forensics: all these must-have features are accelerating the pace of change. LAM professionals need to acquire twenty-first century skill-sets to respond to these changes, yet many of our newest graduates report that they cannot find jobs, in some cases because they lack traditional skills. In this session, we will look at educational expectations and opportunities for new and seasoned professionals, including certification, credentialing, badging, and portfolios and how professionals and employers can be confident that a resume accurately reflects real-world skills. We will review the ways that traditional GLAM education is adapting to new demands and discuss additional areas in which improvement is needed.
