For information professionals in particular, this has been the defining fact of the last 25 years. It has enabled ever greater quantities of research to be published, expanded the range of media we can use, and offered new possibilities for recognising and rewarding research contributions. But such opportunities also bring challenges and pitfalls.
If we do the right things, this could be a golden age for research, but to make the most of it we must embrace the original principles that made the web itself such a powerful force.

Prior to that he was Associate Director Data Expeditions - Mining Data for Effective Decision-Making Beyond library budgets and content usage reports, libraries and consortia are searching, sorting, managing, and hunting for deep data that allows them to understand their environments and represent themselves and their patrons more effectively in these changing and complicated times.
But data challenges exist at every turn. Finding data, which is often housed in a variety of disparate sources, is the first challenge but it is immediately followed by measuring, adapting, and distilling data down to the most important factors. Libraries and consortia spend many person hours gathering data from scratch and then deriving information and knowledge from that data to make informed, evidence-based decisions.
In this session, we will hear from leading library experts about their scholarly publishing data hunting expeditions and the innovative ways they access and utilize deep data to inform their discussions and decisions and support their activities. Ann Michael is CEO of Delta Think, a consulting and advisory firm focused on innovation and growth in content focused organizations.

Metadata A holistic approach to metadata improvements for scholarly communications In the library community, there have been many efforts to obtain consistency regarding metadata principles, schema, and standards. However, even though much of this work has been robust and thorough, it has primarily been undertaken as by the library community. Communication and collaboration with other communities in scholarly communications will ensure that these efforts are useful and effective more broadly. Metadata is a collaboration of over librarians, publishers, service providers, data publishers and repositories, researchers and funders.
We have joined forces to address multiple challenges with metadata in scholarly communications, including the need for shared best practices and principles, mapping between schema, assessing metadata evaluation tools, creating a common list of metadata definitions for widespread use across scholarly communications, and communicating incentives for metadata improvements to multiple communities.

Neapolitan , SC: Scholarly Communication. Spring is here! Cultivating agency through emerging community-owned solutions: Usage Analytics, Institutional Repositories, and Resource Sharing Despite increasing need for efficiency and widespread availability of technology, there seems to be less choice in the library marketplace, and libraries are finding themselves with much less leverage to secure the options they need. Consolidation among major library technology providers has put libraries in a position to choose: Do we buy it from a vendor, build it ourselves, or something in-between?
After a quick introduction to each project, panelists will discuss aspects of agency: why we need it, what it looks like, and its biggest challenges. Our goal is to share our passion for community-owned solutions and motivate audience members to invest in them. Jason S.

Meanwhile, emerging issues are addressed in journal literature, but few reviews of the issues are available to provide background to newcomers. While professional development opportunities strive to provide sure footing to acquisitions newcomers, we can often fall short, leaving our new colleagues feeling adrift.
Through a positive and structured discussion we will explore the existing and emerging areas of acquisitions that new librarians, librarians new to acquisitions, and even experienced acquisitions librarians can feel unprepared to navigate. Results of the discussions will be collected, synthesized, and widely distributed as an agenda for introduction to acquisitions professional development. We hope that they will encourage additional opportunities for professional development based on the expressed needs of new acquisitions librarians.
Rachel Fleming works on affordable course materials, scholarly communication, and collection assessment as Collections Initiatives Librarian at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Fleming has over ten years of experience in library technical services including collection development Neapolitan , UC: Up and Coming. In response, librarians, educators and government officials are looking for ways to make required course materials more affordable. As the impact of rapidly rising textbook prices often makes students have to choose between required course materials and other life essentials, academic libraries are feeling more pressure to respond.
This panel will cover the different yet kindred approaches taken by the Alabama and California state systems in tackling this long-standing issue. One method for cutting student expenses is by replacing costly traditional textbooks with open educational resources OER , which are teaching and learning materials that you may use and reuse. OER are typically available in a variety of formats, both no-cost digital and low-cost print.
This makes courses, and college as a whole, more accessible, particularly for lower income students. Individual CSU libraries actively participate in the ALS process, but there has been little coordination between libraries.

Adapting Library Workflows to Accommodate Transferred Journals Effective electronic resources management is comprised of ever evolving complex processes. One especially challenging component is to seamlessly ensure continuity of access and service to transferred journals, or journals that have changed publishers. The aspect that is particularly problematic throughout this process is the tracking of these changes. In the past at Rowan University Library, this process had not been monitored proactively. The library has addressed this challenge by implementing workflows that use the National Information Standards Organization NISO Enhanced Transfer Alerting Service, which is a feed notifying subscribers of journals transferred from one publisher to another.
In addition to the Enhanced Transfer feed, the Journal Transfer Notification Database has made it easier than ever for libraries to track transferred journals. Adapting Library Workflows pdf. Concurrent , MT: Management. Advancing Discovery Throughout the Scholarly Communications Workflow Each year, in excess of two and half million scholarly articles are published. When you add to this the different versions of these articles, the data which underpins these articles, along with other academic outputs such as conference proceedings etc, the wealth of information available to researchers is growing rapidly.
Researchers need to be able to discover, access, and share this information in order for it to be put to its proper use — the development of future discoveries. Publishers are actively engaged in methods to help researchers connect with very specific resources that meet their needs. This starts with advising authors how to be specific in their use of titles, keywords and abstracts, and travels the full route through scholarly communications by offering accurate classification in metadata and participating in programs to make use of Google Scholar a more satisfying experience.
This session will seek to cover a broad array of techniques and technologies that are in use or under development to enhance the experience of researchers as consumers of scholarly content. During this time we will ask how are publishers helping librarians and their users make the most of their collections? What are the barriers in their way? What are they not doing that they should be? What role does technology have in helping both publishers and librarians ensure researchers have access to the content they need?

F18 E book is not a 4 letter word pptx. Concurrent , CD: Collections. In negotiating journal pricing, the disadvantages libraries face are well documented. Diminishing library budgets, vendor consolidation, an ever-expanding availability of e-resources, and rising inflationary costs have created chronic, unsustainable subscription pricing.
Pricing issues are exacerbated by traditional negotiations, where libraries begin negotiations based on the offers made by publishers and vendors. Big package deals, while lowering the costs per article and expanding access to research resources, have conversely increased overall costs, which disproportionately consume library budgets, and fenced off large swaths of content from cancellation. Frustratingly, when attempting to break from all-encompassing access models, institutions find publishers offering a smaller number of titles for only slightly, if any, less money.
When this is coupled with the loss of researcher access, and the increased staffing needed to manage individual subscriptions, the issues are clear. Although not yet able to meet all needs, they hold the most promise for a scholarship ecosystem that more fairly accounts for publication costs, the contributions of the academy, and the public good. And although libraries are ready to make a leap now, there are real long-term institutional trust and communication risks to not providing researchers access to the materials these deals currently provide, however unsustainable.
Using data analysis, existing models, and the power of the collective, this radical consortial approach allows for both flexibility and sustainability. Most importantly, it frees up member institutions to establish distinctive collections, while creating the necessary space, to make significant progress on the conversion to Open Access. For over 24 years, she has served in various positions and leadership roles within JMU Libraries, ranging from cataloging Academic librarians are being asked to ensure provision of a percentage of their collection in electronic formats.
This requirement is heavily based on a perceived need to work smarter and more efficiently to support virtualisation for anywhere, anytime access. This has led to a budget shift towards virtualisation and digital collections. A critical question is whether this shift is acceptable to users of academic law libraries.

Let the winds of change carry us forward: Measuring diversity and other multidisciplinary subjects in the collection Do you know how well your library collection reflects the diversity of your student population, the disciplines in which they study, and their various perspectives? During literature searches, as they prepared to assess the collection coverage of materials relating to marginalized groups within the Penn State Libraries system and the Orbis Cascade Alliance Consortium, they discovered a disappointing lack of information on methods for assessing collections in subject specific and multidisciplinary subject areas.
This session will provide an overview of two collections-based research projects, one of which focuses on LGBTQ collection materials and the other on collections related to racism and social justice as well as the methods they used to assess collection coverage in these areas. This session will provide an overview of these collections-based research projects and the constellation of methods that were used in order to contribute to the conversation regarding collection assessment in academic libraries as well as stimulate conversation among attendees.
Windsofchange charleston pptx. Measuring the scholarly impact of newspaper sources in research While digitized news research databases have been available to researchers for nearly 20 years, measuring the value of this content on teaching and research outcomes remains a known challenge. Usage statistics may only convey part of the story. Increasingly, libraries want to know the value of such investments on research funding and on the quality and quantity of research outcomes.
What is the impact of digitized newspaper titles in research outcomes? The earlier study suggested that The New York Times-- when considered as a scholarly resource—had a much broader influence across disciplines than the other digital collections resources examined. What is the comparative impact of other newspaper titles across disciplines? Do the titles perform similarly across disciplines or are there significant differences?
In this presentation, we will share the methodology, outcomes and next steps from the research project, and make recommendations for those wishing to conduct similar impact studies at an individual institution level.

Nothing happens unless first a dream: Demystifying the academic library job search and acing the application process Academic library positions are often highly desirable for new librarians and experienced librarians interested in transitioning into a different setting. Yet for both novice and experienced librarians alike, landing an interview for an academic librarian position can feel intimidating and overwhelming. Applicants may have no academic library experience, no coursework in relevant areas, and may be competing with a large pool of qualified candidates.
When academic job openings ask for years of academic library experience and library school specializations suggest that the path you pick is the path you keep until retirement, it begins to feel as though finding a position in an academic library is an insurmountable endeavor. As three librarians who have successfully made the move into an academic setting, we can attest that though the way may be unclear, this goal is not impossible to achieve. In this session, attendees will learn about transitioning to an academic library from diverse backgrounds and hear lessons learned from three early-career librarians.

However, in order to make this transition, libraries must first wean themselves from their current means of data communication, MARC.
MARC was a revolution in its day. It allowed data from library card catalogs to be encoded in machine-readable form, enabling the catalog cards to be reproducible on the computer screen and the data to be exchanged freely among libraries. It is a fifty-year-old technology, however, originally designed for magnetic tape-based computers, and now only understood by library systems. In addition, the MARC formats are semantically inexpressive and have isolated libraries from the development of the Web.
The session will begin with a brief introduction about the importance of the transition to linked data and a summary of the objectives of the PCC URI task force. Members of the audience can interact with the panel and ask about these services in relationship to their libraries.
Members of the audience can expect to learn more about the transition to linked data and how to better prepare their MARC data for this inevitable transition.
Strategic Restructuring: staffing collections for an evolving scholarly landscape The core work of collection development and management has never been more complex. Added to the traditional decision making around the content itself are layers of strategic decisions around access, licensing, DRM and preservation. New and evolving business models have increased the choices for procurement.
Issues of cost containment and sustainability, as well as pressures for more student space, have fueled the need for more in-depth collections analysis and assessment. To effectively respond to these challenges, some academic libraries have engaged in restructuring to build strategic collections teams.
We will discuss this work at three Canadian academic libraries who are each at a different stage in the process: the University of Alberta, University of Guelph and Western University. The evolution of the teams and the impact on workflows, capacity building and decision making will be described. The University of Guelph Library reorganized from a liaison librarian model to a strategic team based model in , resulting in the creation of the Information Resources Strategic Team which has undergone further iterations since that time.
In , the University of Alberta Libraries moved from a decentralized model of monograph acquisitions that involved all liaison librarians, to a centralized model that eliminated individual selection. In this model further evolved with the formation of a centralized team of collection strategies librarians who are responsible for all aspects of collections work, allowing liaisons to focus on other emerging service areas.
Following three years of planning, the libraries moved to a hybrid approach, helping to better accommodate the professional libraries and archives. Tangible, first steps will be discussed. The presentation will wrap up with the common themes, lessons learned and next steps drawn from the experiences at our three libraries.

ORCID provides a framework for trustworthy identity management by linking research contributions and related activities across the scholarly communication ecosystem, with benefits for both individuals and organizations such as research institutions, publishers, government agencies, and funders.
Individuals can obtain a unique ORCID iD for free, which serves as a digital identifier distinguishing individual researchers from other researchers and enabling them to manage their records. With over 95 institutional members currently taking advantage of this national consortial approach to ORCID in the US, and increasing adoption of ORCID by publishers, funders, and other organizations worldwide, we are at the cusp of a paradigm shift from repetitive print-based workflows to fully harnessing the power and advantages of the digital age in the research and scholarly communication landscape.

The Legalities and Demand that Necessitates a Library Video Streaming Service There are many differing interpretations of copyright law when it comes to digitizing and providing streaming video as a library service. Librarians at the University of Kansas KU have long been interested in providing a streaming video service for pedagogical purposes, but KU General Counsel always took a conservative stance on this practice and would not allow it.
When KU Libraries hired a new Dean, who was also a copyright attorney, General Counsel became amenable to the Fair Use arguments the Dean provided, and after working through workflow and technical issues, a new streaming service was introduced to KU faculty and students. Growing demand for streaming content along with the diminishing availability of playback equipment in the classroom for VHS and DVDs were primary motivators in the establishment of this service.
Preference for streaming content for classroom use mirrors the greater trend for streaming content and the downward trend for physical media in the marketplace, as well as the increased usage of video for classroom instruction and research.

This service not only serves to meet faculty and student expectations for access, it allows for greater accommodation of online and distance education. In this session, KU Librarians will survey the policies at selected academic libraries for providing access to streaming video and discuss the various interpretations of copyright law and Fair Use, including the interpretation of Fair Use that allows the KU Libraries to provide a streaming service.
The discussion will also include an examination of the rationale and the technological environment at KU that necessitates such a service, along with the workflow planning and troubleshooting involved in bringing this new service to life.

While there has been significant discussion of the benefits of press-library integration and collaboration, less time has been given to exploring areas of tension that can emerge when presses report to libraries. What cultural and professional differences can frustrate the creation of strong partnerships? Finally, what strategies can be deployed for avoiding or resolving conflicts, all with the goal of promoting true collaboration and a sustainable scholarly communications landscape?
Each panelist will bring a different perspective to the discussion, as well as different reasons as to why and when their press moved into the library. This session will be of benefit to library administrators, librarians working in scholarly communications and publishing, and university press staff who want to better understand the realities and challenges of press-library integration. The session will focus on strategies for building positive relationships across professional boundaries, with time for attendees to participate in a discussion about how librarians and publishers can work together in support of our authors, readers, and scholarly communities.
Come for a lively, rapid-fire group of talks. French remains one of the most important languages for scholarship, and thus publications in all formats continue to be acquired by North American research libraries across the disciplines. This presentation posits that it is not the language in which the books are published that acts as a barrier to access but the paucity of the metadata for these digital works. Though this problem is not unique to French publications from Europe, it is endemic to many digital monographs from the non-English speaking world, thereby marginalizing valuable scholarly content.
The critique comes at a time when controlled vocabulary and Library of Congress Subject Headings are being passed over in favor of more easily obtainable descriptive metadata such as publisher-supplied summaries, table of contents, and user-supplied tags. Is there a role for libraries to ensure that ebooks in non-English languages are discoverable? The volunteers were losing their sponsor, and the Libraries stepped in to provide space and oversight of the project while the disposition of the collection came under review.
Working with the Smithsonian Archives and the National Museum of Natural History, we obtained grant funding to house the most vulnerable annotated maps, as well as to plan for collections care. We also tackled important issues including copyright and U. As more Smithsonian museums and units have learned about the project, the number of maps in the project continues to grow, while we navigate the evolving stewardship of the collection.
Though it was slow to take off, when it did, usage increased rapidly. After depleting the initial budget for the resource, we allocated more funds and then quickly depleted those additional funds. At that point, we changed to a mediated model to help control the costs but that greatly increased work for our Acquisitions Department and raised collection development questions we had not considered when we began the PDA program. To continue to offer a streaming video PDA program, we reviewed various models and controls before deciding on an approach that we hope will give users good options, curtail costs, and minimize workloads.

Authentication, Identity Management, Privacy and Personalisation: How can libraries strike the right balance and avoid the growing dystopian dangers?
Artificial Intelligence is being deployed to track ever more aspects of our lives. The dangers of privacy invasion are real, and libraries have been rightly cautious in their approach to authentication within their walls. While various Single Sign-On authentication protocols have emerged, there is still a great deal of resistance by libraries to adopt any form of authentication beyond IP. Yet, the internet is increasingly delivering valuable personalized tools and experiences that are changing user expectations and demands.

Beyond Circulation: Assessing Collections in the Age of Student Success In a time of decreasing collections budgets and expectations of increased fiscal accountability in libraries, collection management librarians are increasingly expected to justify expenditures through the provision of usage data to their stakeholders.
Yet traditional methods of collection assessment, often focused upon summary circulation statistics, are only marginally useful in demonstrating collection strength to patrons. To paint a more complete picture of a library's successful collection development program, librarians need to identify and verify a relationship between circulation statistics and improved student outcomes, as well as support of faculty scholarship and teaching. While this task can seem daunting, many methods not involving the use of advanced statistics or an inordinate amount of time and effort do exist.
This presentation will: a provide a brief review of the literature of collection assessment as it relates to patron success; and b review several methods of collection assessment beyond basic circulation counts, including analysis of circulation and interlibrary loan activity, citation analysis of patron scholarship, and circulation statistics as they relate to such student success measures as GPA, with practical examples of such analysis from a small university library. Session attendees will be given a template for developing or enhancing their own assessment plans, and time will be provided for small group discussions to identify first steps and potential obstacles.

Bringing new scholarly communications librarians into bloom. Do you need a JD to lead a library copyright program? Is research data management too big a job for any one person? Scholarly communication is recognized as a core competency for librarianship but there is currently no unified educational resource available for training and continuing education that represents the great diversity of experience and perspectives at place in effective support for scholarly communication.
This lively discussion asks librarians, publishers, vendors and other interested information professionals to weigh in on a community conversation about what scholarly communication is and what training a librarian should have to do the job. Join the conversation about what kind of librarians we should be growing and what they need to blossom! Collective Action: Community Approaches in Scholarly Communication "Community and scholarly communication are intertwined by design.
Researcher careers, research institutions, and global collaborations progress based on the communication of ideas. Cultivating change in this space involves navigating the cultural norms of inter- and intra-disciplinary groups, funders, publishers, and infrastructure. Mobilizing communities capable of supporting this work is a daunting task. Determining who your community is, how to create a sense of belonging among them, and the ways that they will work together are interrelated challenges that all community initiatives in scholarly communication must face. This Lively Discussion will feature five individuals with experience working on a range of projects that have taken unique approaches to working with their communities.
From coordinating a network of data science instructors to advocating for improved technical infrastructure in scholarly communication, each participant has faced different challenges and surfaced new opportunities. Collectively, the participants in the session will begin to map the many ways that community approaches in scholarly communication are similar and can build upon one another, as well as how and why paths may diverge.

An experienced linguist, translator, and interpreter, she also serves as academic liaison Expand Your Online Presence: Promote Your Scholarly activities with Author Services "Academic librarians are well known for training and teaching students how to navigate research databases and other electronic resources in information literacy programs and one-shot information literacy training sessions.
However, students are not the only constituent at our institutions who require training in the research process. We are directors of the library and learning center LLC and institutional research and training IRT at an institution that is primarily a teaching-focused college. For many years, our faculty had no formal expectations of consistent publishing. This changed recently when college leadership announced that the new vision of the college included consistent faculty scholarly output.
To encourage faculty publication, we have worked one-on-on and in small group training on topics such as survey design, data analysis, and how to write literature reviews. Recently we co-facilitated a workshop on how to promote their publications using web-based Author Services. Join us in this lively presentation no PowerPoint here!

An Outsider's Take on Librarian Approach In the day of instantaneous information access, can a gatekeeper truly control access to information or do they simply alienate the people they serve? If a librarian sees themselves as a navigator through the murky, confusing and overwhelming information available, are they more relatable to their patrons?
Which model serves the library better? Do the libraries and library patrons of the future need gatekeepers, navigators, or something else? Do patrons respond better to a particular methodology? This proposed Lively Discussion will look at how librarians approach their occupation and how that shapes librarian-patron relationship.
I would love to hear from industry professionals how they see librarian roles and if they feel libraries are currently being well served by these roles. Good Partners? Can Open Access publishers and librarians find meaningful ways to collaborate? What should the relationship be between the purely Open Access publishers and librarians? Yes, in theory, among publishers these are publishers who are fully aligned with libraries to end the stranglehold which the traditional subscription publishers have on libraries.
Since they don't have renewal revenue at risk they may not pay sufficient attention to usage and integration with library systems [KBART? Since collection development librarians don't have to assign budget dollars to purchasing their content--maybe they don't need attention from librarians. The big subscription journals collect just one payment a year, and with big bundles, just one payment to cover thousands of journals.
Are Open Access publishers just replacing that with thousands of tiny payments either in article processing costs, or in membership schemes for individual researchers? What are some initiatives that these publishers are trying that can avoid having the costs of publishing being invoiced to individual authors? Can these publishers, aligned as they are with libraries on the defects in the subscription system, be good partners with librarians in areas such as: Open Science Pre-print Servers Integration with Open Repositories Open Monograph publishing O. Come to a Lively Discussion with a panel of purely Open Access publishers and librarians to brainstorm these and other questions effecting how the pure Open Access publishers and librarians might collaborate more effectively.

We will discuss how the term has changed over time to encompass a variety of overlapping discriminatory practices affecting marginalized groups.
Our speakers will talk about how they have worked to educate others about discrimination through their own programs, teaching, and actions. They will cover areas, such as research methodology, critical information literacy, and how intersectionality has been applied to library science, specifically within scholarly conversations. We will also explore ways libraries can take part in the conversation by offering resources and programming that support research and inquiry.
Audience participation and sharing of experience will be encouraged as a broad array of perspectives will spur dialogue and help foster ideas. I've worked in the educational publishing industry for over 20 years and held various roles in marketing, sales, business development, product management, and new product development.

Open Research as a concept is also fluid and building momentum and will likely be the supporting structure of all academic research and scholarly communications in the near future. What does this mean for the big deal? Join us for a panel to discuss these issues and how all the stakeholders in open research can grow together into a more open academic world. She liaises with campus partners on the development of targeted outreach and programming that promote scholarly communication and open access, and develops open education strategies to further the campus mission of research Popular or recreational reading collections are just one of myriad ways that academic libraries contribute to these efforts.
This panel discussion will feature perspectives from three libraries one private medium sized university, one large public STEM-focused, one large public comprehensive university and their take on the role of popular reading collection in academic libraries. Attendees can expect to be part of an interactive discussion on how to launch and configure popular reading collections for their target audience, assess the use and potential impact of these collections, share creative ways to promote the collections, and learn about strategies for contextualizing these collections within the academic library mission and vision.
She has also taught a credit-bearing Information Literacy course State of Play: Research insights on effective educational video in the library As students and faculty increasingly embrace video as a teaching and learning resource, libraries are often left to grapple with what kind best meet the interest and learning expectations of their constituents. Though there is mutual acceptance of video as a tool and resource, faculty and students have unique behavior and preferences regarding the medium.
As various types of platforms, formats, designs, and elements play into what comprises effective video, how should librarians select video content for their libraries? Based on recent empirical research, this presentation will help librarians better understand what faculty and students need from academic video resources.
