W01 - The License & Copyright Jigsaw Puzzle: Making the Pieces Fit

Access and acquisition of digital content always involves some kind of rights analysis and management, even if no license is required to subscribe to that database or ejournal. What rights do libraries have to use the digital content we acquire, why do we have them, and how do we negotiate and manage them? This workshop will help answer those questions by providing a deeper, focused look at the rights associated with the digital content that libraries acquire and support, and how they are expressed through license agreements and existing copyright law. Participants will have the opportunity to advance their knowledge of the legal framework that supports the acquisition of digital content and the use of it by library users. This foundational knowledge will be combined with the practical aspects of license reviews as part of the acquisition and collection management process, as well as a discussion of how libraries comply with these agreements through their technical infrastructure, their support procedures, and through direct communication of their terms. Specific topics to be covered include an overview of licenses as legally binding contracts, how they are constructed, the type of information they contain and how they intersect with existing copyright law, how libraries should manage a breach of license terms, and the relationship between these terms and library services such as interlibrary loan, collection development policy, and support for teaching and learning.

W05 – Teach Your Staff to Troubleshoot E-Resources: Practical Processes for Creating Effective Troubleshooting Training

E-resource troubleshooting is an increasingly complex and time-consuming activity in the era of web-scale discovery. With multiple systems and access pathways involved, effective problem solving requires a sophisticated bundle of knowledge, skills, and tools. How can librarians and staff become effective and efficient troubleshooters? Through hands-on activities and group discussions, workshop participants will learn several practical approaches to documenting their e-resource access environment, systems, and troubleshooting methods, then create a framework for their own e-resources troubleshooting training curriculum. Presenters will cover key concepts and troubleshooting tools, and help participants understand how to apply those concepts and tools in their own discovery and access environments. Participants will also learn how to evaluate training effectiveness, along with strategies for practical reinforcement of troubleshooting techniques and skills. The presenters work in an Alma/Primo discovery environment, but this workshop is intended to be system agnostic. Participants will leave this session with drafts of training documents specific to their own environments.

W04 – Agile-Inspired Project Management for Library Staff (Or Simple and Practical Methods to Keep Calm and Get Stuff Done)

At ER&L 2016, the instructor presented how she used elements of Scrum to manage a collections assessment project. Because of the great benefits she experienced using Scrum, she continues to use Agile methods for large and small projects to effectively juggle competing priorities and meet tight deadlines. Based on attendee feedback, this workshop provides an opportunity for 2017 ER&L attendees to learn more about Scrum and other Agile Movement tools. Commonly used in software development, Agile methods like Scrum and Kanban are simple, practical, and flexible project management methods. This workshop will introduce attendees to Scrum and Kanban through a balance of theory, demonstration, and hands-on application. During this workshop, the instructor will briefly demonstrate how she used elements of Scrum to develop a framework for a comprehensive review of e-resource collections. Attendees will then begin applying Scrum by working in small groups to develop the Scrum elements of “stories” and “tasks” for their own projects.

Next, the instructor will describe Kanban and demonstrate how she uses Kanban in her current position. Attendees will then explore analog and digital iterations of Kanban and create their own Kanban board.

During the demonstrations of Scrum and Kanban, the instructor will illustrate the flexibility of each method and describe how she modified the methods as needed for her work. She will illustrate how using these methods helped not only with getting tasks done, but also helped strengthen project deliverables, increase team morale, and resulted in equitable task distribution among team members.

K01 - Data Violence: Dignity, Discrimination, and Algorithmic Identity
*WATCH THE KEYNOTE FOR FREE!

Today, our “data doubles”—algorithmically-generated, computation-friendly versions of our identities produced by and through digital data—present new challenges for social justice. Among these challenges is the problem of promoting dignity and self-respect, values that provide individuals and groups with a sense that their identities and experiences are valuable and their goals are worth pursuing. For vulnerable or marginalized populations, dignity and self-respect can be undermined by violent actions, symbols, or cultural ideas promoted through mass media, law and policy, or—increasingly—the design of data-intensive systems that seek to sort, evaluate, and rank people according to opaque or biased criteria.  

In this talk, I position “data doubles” as sites of potential violence—especially when they conflict with our own moral self-perceptions, ideas, and beliefs in ways that implicate our dignity. Through an examination of 1) historical human rights abuses perpetrated through population data, 2) current critical discussions of surveillance, algorithms, and data ethics, and 3) the experiences of transgender women navigating systems that fail to account for their particular identities and bodies, I show how institutionalized and other biases work in and through data-driven systems to deprive certain people of what philosopher John Rawls called “the social bases of self-respect.”

Lunch & Learn with Ex Libris: Weeding e-Resources
This session is now at capacity. Guests registered through this link will be given priority. 
**Please use this link to RSVP to reserve your spot for this event**


While the weeding of physical materials in libraries has become a well-worn workflow, weeding e-resources is much newer and can seem confusing. This session will demonstrate how to incorporate usage, overlap analysis, and duplicate title analysis to make sure you’re keeping what you need and not what you don’t. E-resource specialists will present new electronic resources reporting workflows that combines usage data, an overlap analysis of e-resources owned between different vendor packages, and a duplicate title analysis of e-resources owned all within a single system. This session will review each of these reporting features and their data output to help us understand our e-resource collections, where we are allocating funds, and what savings can be generated for the library.

Focus Group: Navigating the Evolving Information Landscape

Closing keynote and researcher Monica Bulger is interested in how researchers and information specialists are navigating the evolving information environment. 

We will be hosting a focus group discussion on Tuesday at 9am on the ways in which the evolving information environment may present new challenges and impact our work as information specialists and researchers. Specifically, we’d like to discuss what seems different in the past year, where we’re feeling overwhelmed or like we need to adjust our usual research/instruction techniques. Together, we will identify what might be ‘new’ or ‘evolving’ challenges to our established practice and the strategies for doing or supporting research.

We’re looking for 8-12 volunteers to be part of focus group at 9am on Tuesday at ER&L.

Hacking the Web of Science: From "big data" studies to your research portals, getting the most out of the Web of Science
Thousands of institutions around the world use the Web of Science Core Collection every day.  Many also use its high-quality metadata outside of the platform for various purposes. When researchers need to study science, technology, and innovation trends, they turn to the Web of Science Core Collection as the only comprehensive citation source to provide over 100 years of consistent, global publication data.  Researchers can receive large datasets in XML and other formats to combined with other data sources and to use in statistical, networking, and visualization tools.  The same curated metadata are also used to enhance institutional systems like IRs and VIVO via APIs. Using our APIs, an institution can retrieve its publication records from over 17,000 high-impact journals in one place, making it the ideal source to populate researcher publication lists in VIVO or add time cited counts to your IR.  We will discuss these alternative uses of Web of Science Core Collection through customer case studies.

Lunch & Learn with EBSCO: Achieving Success in Research, the EBSCO Discovery Service Way

**Please use this link to RSVP to reserve your spot for this event**

Success in research stands or falls with discovery. Discovery, after all, is the entry point to the library’s collections. With this in mind, EBSCO has focused much of its development efforts on EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS), which has become the discovery service of choice for thousands of libraries worldwide. So how does EDS support success in research? From its unique approach to relevance ranking, the inclusion of subject indexes, to an array of customization options delivered by our library service engineers, there is much that goes into EDS. This presentation will provide an overview of EDS. The presenter will present the core EDS features and functionality that drive success in research and will look at the array of ways in which libraries can work with EBSCO engineers to customize EDS to meet specific institutional and user needs.

Learning objectives: participants will learn about EDS, its core features and customization options that support success in research.

Thinking Outside The Box: Non-Traditional Takes on Assessment and Management of E-Resources

Whether through a serials review process or a detailed study, analyzing the value of e-resources at regular intervals is important to ensure their fit within your library’s collection and budget. While COUNTER statistics are vital for comparable analysis and reporting, there are other metrics and features that can be used to help assess, manage, and promote resources - giving more benefits to the end user.

We’ll look at how other metrics (i.e. impact factors, ILLs, turnaway statistics) and qualitative factors (i.e. perpetual access, open access, scholarly research support, recommendations, user feedback, classroom use, and curricula matching) offer actionable insights for librarians. This session will provide some perspectives and case examples, and a forum for discussing these issues.

S064 - Electronic Resource Containers: How accurately are students able to distinguish between the various packaging of online information?
What does it mean to be format agnostic? Our IMLS-funded project studies the user experiences of primary through graduate students using simulated online search results. We seek to discover how students identify containers when selecting digital resources for academic use, and how their judgments influence their evaluation of online information.

Diving Deeper for Better Insight: Combining Patron Analytics and Patron-driven Acquisition Models to Better Serve Your Researchers

What if your usage and sales reports went beyond *how* your users leverage your resources to tell the story of *why* they use your resources? What if these reports combined statistics with demographics so you could determine how to best serve individual user types?  

Gaining this level of insight often requires surveying users and hours of analysis. During this session, ProQuest’s Diana Peterson will talk through how libraries leverage Patron Analytics, the EBL-originating feature recently relaunched on ProQuest Ebook Central, to skip this time-consuming process. She’ll offer three examples of ways libraries use Patron Analytics to showcase their library’s value as well as offer best practices around combining the data it collects with other ProQuest features, including patron-driven acquisition models like Access-to-Own, to build a collection that best meets the needs of the researchers that it serves.

S079 - Availability of Freely Available Articles From Gold, Green, Rogue, and Pirated Sources: how do library knowledge bases stack up?
A recent bibliometrics study found that 54% of 4.6 million scientific papers from peer-reviewed journals indexed in Scopus during the years 2011-2013 could be downloaded for free on the Internet in April of 2014 (Archambault, et al. 2014). Increasingly, authors and researchers are using more-and-less legal scholarly article sharing services to "take back the literature," or even just to access it more conveniently (Bohannon, 2016). The objective of this study was to evaluate a manageable sample of journal articles across the sciences, social sciences, and humanities for their availability via open access (gold and green), as well as through rogue or pirated versions. Attendees will gain a greater appreciation of the extent of freely available articles through Google Scholar, Google, ResearchGate, and Sci-Hub, and will be challenged to consider how libraries can respond to this major disruption to the scholarly communication ecosystem.

K02 - Fake news, reliability & questioning: A researcher’s struggle to navigate the new information landscape
*WATCH THE KEYNOTE FOR FREE!

In the past year, we’ve gotten a crash course in ‘fake news,’ ‘alternative facts,’ disinformation, confusion, propaganda, and media overwhelm. This isn’t just a philosophical issue for us, but one that strikes at the core of what we do. How does this affect our daily work as curators and creators of information? As a veteran researcher, I’m facing new challenges in my information search and evaluation processes. There are twin feelings of overwhelm and urgency given the rapidity with which stories seem to surface and fade, and the sheer volume of what seem to be very critical stories emerging daily. At the same time, emerging news is often difficult to triangulate and I sometimes find myself reading sources with which I’m unfamiliar and not trusting that a story getting picked up by mainstream news is verification of its reliability. In this presentation, I will share the challenges of developing and publishing research across different frequencies: Twitter, bi-weekly newsletter, blogging, policy briefs, academic journals. I will discuss the evolving information landscape and its impacts on information collection, vetting, and sense-making.

W06 – Transform Your Budget for the Digital Age: Applying the Power of Faceted Classification to Effectively Manage Electronic Resources Funds

Effective collection management and funding advocacy require that academic library materials budgets reflect the complexity of their underlying acquisitions.  The proliferation of electronic resources have led to a substantial increase in the complexity of collection management tasks and the overall impact on the library’s budget sustainability. Monitoring and counteracting the inflation gap brought by the uncontrollable increases in subscription prices, as well as successful advocacy for acquisitions funding are essential parts of electronic resources management today. Libraries need to effectively communicate with their constituents and support their funding requests with powerful data, which the traditional – pre-electronic resources era – budget structure is unequipped to provide.

In the digital era, libraries are in need of an expanded budget structure that accounts for the four critical aspects of the acquisitions process – material type, format, acquisition mode, and discipline – and is able to provide transparency and visibility, support long-term planning and ongoing spending control, as well as facilitate reporting and advocacy.

This innovative budget structure was created and implemented in The Claremont Colleges Library in 2012 and is being used for a fifth consecutive fiscal year. During this time, it has evolved with the changing needs of the organization and the industry and has proven its adaptability and resilience.

Using the structure has significantly improved the transparency of the library’s activities and contributed in a powerful way to regaining faculty and administration’s trust in the library’s stewardship of institutional resources.

This workshop is for those who have some experience working with EZproxy but feel they need/want to know more about what it can do and how to administer it more effectively. Do you wonder what some of the directives mentioned on the listserv actually do? We’ll take a look at them. Would you like your EZproxy to use a campus-wide authentication system such as Shibboleth or LDAP? We’ll explore how to configure EZproxy to work with those systems. Have you seen other institution’s login page, error page, suspension page, etc., and wondered how you can make yours look like those? This workshop will describe how to edit those pages and others you can add. Is your awareness of the web Administrative interface limited? We’ll go over everything that page has to offer you as an administrator. In addition, we’ll discuss how to more effectively troubleshoot problems by considering the three facets of the remote connection process: user, network, EZproxy.

All this and so much more.
