S008 - Implementing the University of Wyoming Research Data Repository
The University of Wyoming Libraries and Advanced Research Computing Center worked together over the past year to implement a publications layer to augment the existing petaLibrary storage platform.  From working data "Commons" to the static "Curation" layer, we continue to plan and implement utilities for researchers to publish/share their datasets.

S021-03 - Open Records for Open Access: Sharing Records for Library-Published Open Access Materials
Many libraries spend a significant amount of time and resources creating open access materials. However, sometimes these works are siloed within institutional websites. This presentation will discuss ways that records for these materials can be shared with others and the affect that sharing has on usage.

S033-01 - Access Gap: Case Study of a Discipline’s Disuse of Repositories
Research is key for professionals to improve practice; however, most articles are locked behind expensive paywalls. Repositories could overcome this barrier, but are authors depositing their work? This presentation presents the results of examining over 600 citations from high impact social work journals for access via repositories and other platforms.

S033-02 - Beyond the Publishing Social Contract: Institutional Repositories and the University Press.
This paper will explore the potential that exists in collaboration between institutional repositories and University Presses. Depositing University Press works into the Institutional Repository allows for greater access for these materials, while giving academic and scholarly weight to the institutional repository as a source for useful, and used, resources.

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.

S055-01 - A tool for librarians to select metrics across the research lifecycle
In this session we introduce a handy tool, the Librarian Quick Reference Cards for Research Impact Metrics, to select a basket of metrics for different situations. We also introduce a new set of free, community-driven journal metrics, called CiteScore metrics, which can be used to evaluate journal reputation.

S075-03 - The Digital Potential: Making Digital Objects More Than a TIFF image and a MODS Record
Many institutions digitize their physical collections. Unfortunately, once these items are digitized, they reside in a repository and act merely as digital representations of their physical counterparts. I discuss how libraries can make greater use of their homegrown electronic resources through collaborations between scholars, students, and the general community.
