S049-01 - Layering London: A Librarian, an English Professor, and an Art Professor Collaborate on a Pre-trip Thick Mapping Class Project. The thick mapping project is part of a Mellon Foundation Digital Liberal Arts grant.
The digital humanities/liberal arts have seen significant growth and maturation in recent years.  Thick mapping in the humanities, brought to heightened visibility by the Hypercities project, is representative of such projects. Academic librarians are uniquely situated to provide critical support to students and faculty engaged in digital humanities/liberal arts projects.

S055-02 - Internet savvy and information literate are different - a case study of librarians and a nonprofit publisher working together to create open materials that bridge this gap for early career researchers in the digital age
Our group made two observations. 1. the desire of librarians to redefine their role and 2. the concern that Early Career Researchers (ECR) are not adequately trained in information literacy. One way for librarians to diversify and provide lasting value to the research community is by addressing this need.

S082 - Open Education Resources for University Based Retirement Communities
With emphasis in ageing populations on lifelong learning, university based retirement communities are on the rise. These communities take many forms, from affiliated centres to full blown campus residences. Through open education resources, librarians can offer a 21st century education to seniors and contribute to an “age-friendly” learning environment.
