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.

Scholarly Communication Express

Sherri L. Barnes
Scholarly Communication Program Coordinator
University of California

Presentation abstract:

UCSB Library's Scholarly Communication Program just launched Scholarly Communication Express, a service that allows campus departments to request 15-minute presentations, to be delivered at department meetings, on trends in academic publishing. Presentations topics include altmetrics; creating data management plans for the social sciences and another for the sciences; Creative Commons licenses; eScholarship, UC's institutional repository; EZID accounts; the NIH Public Access Policy; the UC Open Access Policy; and understanding article publication agreements. Anyone on campus can use the online form at the easy to remember URL - http://www.library.ucsb.edu/15 - to request a presentation. Personal, one-on-one, consultations can also be requested. The service formalizes work the Scholarly Communication Group had already been doing informally, as a result of outreach and old fashion liaison work. Having a flyer and a webpage makes it easier to market the service to a larger audience, track requests and measure our success. The service is designed to reach an audience that rarely has time to think about, let alone change, the way they navigate the scholarly communication system and manage their intellectual property, but wants to know what's going on.

New England Collaborative Data Management Curriculum (NECDMC): An educational program and service for best practices in research data management (RDM)

Regina Raboin
Data Management Services Group Coordinator
Tufts University

Presentation abstract:

Driven by external and internal institutional needs surrounding research data management, new, revised and expanded roles for librarians have evolved and progressive services are being implemented to assist their faculty and institutions with meeting these needs.

One new role for librarians is to teach research data management (RDM) to undergraduate and graduate students and researchers. Five libraries in the New England region developed a unique online, case-based, modular course to teach RDM. Librarians across the US piloted and evaluated this course in different settings.

This presentation will discuss the development and piloting of the open source curriculum, New England Collaborative Data Management Curriculum (NECDMC), information on how the curriculum materials can be used and customized, along with how building institutional and regional partnerships leads to successful curriculum implementation, compliance with federal mandates and best practices in research data management will also be included. Additionally, the presentation will highlight recent "Train-the-Trainer" workshops and current/future pilots of the curriculum.

The presentations will be followed by a brief business meeting.

Analytics, Simplified: A Unified, Data-driven Approach to Decision Support Exhibitor session Las Vegas Convention Center
N253
Description :

Description: Increasingly under pressure to demonstrate their value to the objectives of the institution or consortium, libraries are looking for ever more creative ways to improve efficiency and productivity. Powerful analytic capabilities enable libraries to put numbers on their value and to expose tangible evidence of their leading role in the academic lifecycle. From usage data and onwards, analytics shed light on the inner workings of the entire institution, as well as those of the library. Valuable insight into libraries’ operation can be gained via purchasing trends, comparative analysis, and even predictive analysis—helping managers to better to plan their daily operations. During this session will explore ways in which Alma Analytics can take libraries into the next generation.

Ignite Sunday Session: The Ally-brarian Program Las Vegas Convention Center
N239/241
Description :

How does a librarian assist an underserved population that they are not a part of? They become an ally. The “Ally-brarian” works to help those who would normally not “see themselves” in the library, either as a patron or professional, find a welcoming place. This session will outline how those who are part of a majority have the ability, and the responsibility, to use their capacity as librarians to advocate for those in the minority. It will also demonstrate how allies are crucial to promoting inclusivity in libraries, both in who they serve and who they employ.

Finding the right needle in the haystack – relevance ranking in the context of library discovery systems and big data Exhibitor session Las Vegas Convention Center
S226
Description :

Library discovery systems, such as Primo, provide their users with easy access to a large variety and quantity of material. Users search to fulfil different information needs: for example, they may seek material for a course assignment or a research project, they may look for a particular book, or they may just want to keep abreast of research in their area of interest.

Displaying the material that is most relevant to the user’s information need is not an easy undertaking. Making sure that results from the library’s local collections are represented appropriately among the mass of globally available material adds another challenge. Relevance ranking, including the blending of results from the local and global collections, is a core component of Primo, and Ex Libris is deeply involved in ongoing research to enhance the Primo ranking algorithms. Tools such as log analysis help to identify how users phrase their queries and infer the types of information needs that trigger these queries.

This session provides an insight into the work carried out by Ex Libris in the area of log analysis, outlines some of the challenges involved with ranking and blending of results, and describes the continuous work to enhance the relevance ranking capabilities of Primo.
