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.

Discussion Forum on Water Politics (ACRL LPSS) Forum/Update/Assembly Bally’s
Palace 3
Description :

The LPSS Planning Committee is pleased to announce Mrs. Pat Mulroy, will be speaking at the LPSS Forum “Sharing” Water and Information: Water Policy in the Colorado River Basin at ALA on Saturday, June 28 from 1:00-2:30. Mrs. Mulroy has served as the General Manager of the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) from 1993 to her retirement in early 2014. SNWA is a not-for-profit cooperative agency established in 1991 which manages regional water sources and focuses on the water needs of Southern Nevada. The forum will focus on Mrs. Mulroy’s experience as General Manager of SNWA and how negotiating water policy for southern Nevada included many partners and players. As a public figure, Mrs. Mulroy has been a key player in providing water policy information to the public, which, with a resource as essential as water, draws much public scrutiny. Mrs. Mulroy was a driving force in the acquisition of water in southern Nevada, having negotiated several of interstate and international water agreements. The forum will provide a glimpse into water policy and the politics of sharing information and water between states, governments, and internationally.

Scholarly Communications Interest Group Forum/Update/Assembly Las Vegas Convention Center
N260
Description :

We will be featuring two presentations:

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.

Holdings Information Forum Forum/Update/Assembly Las Vegas Convention Center
S229
Description :

Please join the ALCTS CRS Holdings Information Committee at the ALA Annual Conference in Las Vegas on
Saturday, June 28th from 3:00-4:00 p.m. in the Las Vegas Convention Center, Room 203 B. We have three presentations demonstrating three different perspectives on the manipulation and use of holdings data:

MarcEdit and OCLC Integration

Terry Reese, the developer of the MarcEdit software program, will discuss MarcEdit and current integration opportunities, focusing on the new OCLC Metadata API service. He will demonstrate how MarcEdit has been able to utilize that service to provide deep integration to support direct and local bibliographic editing of WorldCat data directly within MarcEdit, as well as support batch holdings management through the interface. The presentation will discuss the current capabilities, some gaps, and how interested individuals could get started.

BIBFRAME, ISSN, and the Future of Serials

Regina Reynolds, Coordinator, U.S. ISSN Center, Library of Congress shares her thoughts about the ISSN and the future of serials description and access as we transition from MARC21 to BIBFRAME.

Josh Pyle, CTO and President of Dublin Six, will disuss holdings verification through the use of The AUDITOR software package. Installed on an institution’s network, The Auditor passively monitors all network traffic and makes libraries aware of every form of content that is being used and presents this information in COUNTER-style reports. The Auditor’s reports include content from every publisher on every platform, and also reports on content from open access or free information sources. Sophisticated click-stream analysis infers library holdings in real-time. Unexpected access denials, including broken links, are detected immediately.
