W01: So Now It’s Your Job to Fix This: Learning How to Troubleshoot E-Resource Problems
Taking over E-Resources management? Broadening your skills for a job search? This workshop is designed to give attendees the basic tools to identify, resolve, and track a variety of electronic resource access issues, from simple to complex.  It will begin by introducing attendees to the different elements involved in making an online resource accessible to users and then describe the common ways in which the components can break. The presenters will bring case studies and real-life examples to demonstrate what participants can expect once they’re professional e-resources troubleshooters. Using hands-on activities and drawing on the vast experience of the presenters, the workshop will walk through how to the details of how each system  component functions, so that attendees can ascertain for themselves the cause of sample access problems. After learning how to diagnose an issue, attendees will learn the steps needed to fully resolve the issue, how (and to whom) to communicate regarding the resolution, and the importance of tracking all this activity for future use. Participants will be able to take away practical techniques and skills that they can immediately put into practice in their own work environments. The presenters currently work in an OCLC WMS/WorldCat Discovery consortial  environment, but have experience running SFX, 360 Link, Primo, EDS, and SirsiDynix Symphony from previous institutions, so the workshop is intended to cover issues faced in those systems as well.

W02: Building a Sustained Culture of Process Improvement Using Workflow Analysis
Using a train-the-trainer model, attendees will learn how to complete a workflow analysis from start to finish, and how to then instruct others in the organization to do the same. The ultimate goal of this approach is to build a work culture that empowers all staff to continually recognize and address issues, from simple to complex. The hands-on session will focus on common workflow issues; project scoping, prioritization, and management; and team building. Real-life examples will be used to demonstrate the methodology, and via group exercises participants will have an opportunity to practice various strategies for engaging with stakeholders to gather key data and secure buy-in. Presenters will also illustrate how to use freely available web-based tools for mapping and sharing workflows, and how to leverage these to accommodate different learning styles. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be provided with a practical workflow toolkit that they can scale to and deploy in their own work environment. This session is appropriate for beginners and those with some experience.

W03: Promoting and Marketing E-Resources for Beginners: Creating an Effective Plan to Increase E-Resource Usage at Your Institution
According to a recent Pew Research Center study usage of electronic resources have declined in the past five years. Although, very few library schools offer marketing courses, many E-Resources Librarians have had marketing and promotion of e-resources added to their job description. For solo and new E-Resources Librarians, this can appear very daunting. This course will provide a comprehensive overview of how to promote and market your e-resources to the patrons of your organization. This workshop will include assessing where you stand now and how to create and measure marketing goals. The workshop will cover recruiting the front line staff as co-marketers. Participants will learn about using online tools such as social media and blogging to promote their e-resources. The workshop will teach participants how to use narrative as a teaching tool for effective trainings, as well as a plan for building relationships and outreach within and outside of the organization. It does not matter what size or type of organization you work for or how long you have worked in e-resources, all participants will leave with a promotional plan adapted specifically for their role and their organization.

W04: Visualizing Library Usage Data with Tableau Public
A successful data visualization can tell a powerful story with numbers. In recent years many libraries have started to use the data visualization software Tableau to help analyze the library usage data we collect and to communicate library impact and values to the community: How many visitors we have per year? How much money we spend for an electronic journal and what is the usage? What is the circulation per capita for this branch library?

The workshop will begin with an introduction to library usage data that all libraries work with: gate counts, circulation statistics and COUNTER reports, etc.. The participants will learn about the characteristics of the data and methods that are most suitable for visualizing them. The participants will learn how to use Tableau Public, a free version of the Tableau software, to create interactive data visualization including basic chart types, thematic maps and data dashboards. Good data visualization comes from “clean” data. As such this workshop will have brief introductions to tools and procedures that can be apply to clean and prepare library usage data for visualization. The workshop will also introduce the participants to design principles for data visualization and different types of data visualization tools (free or commercial).

The Heckler’s Veto: The Real Threats to Free Speech and Deep Thought
Whenever we talk about free speech, or threats to free speech, we take an 18th- and 19th-century point of view. To Thomas Jefferson and John Stuart Mill, the world was quiet and dark. The challenge for them, and the challenge for most of the two centuries before this one, was to increase the number of speakers and the variety of thoughts. This made sense. Diversity of voices is good, in general. But by the 21st century we have not only solved that diversity problem, we have created a whole new problem: Cacophony. Everyone can speak. Everyone has a camera. Everyone can broadcast. Now the challenge is about amplifying the quality, not the quantity, of speech. This talk will discuss how we got here and what we can do to manage to think in this loud, bright world.

Putting Knowledge in Context: Curating Connections with Innovative’s New Data Platform
SESSION VIDEO NOW AVAILABLE

Libraries have long been valued for the unique expertise their librarians bring to knowledge management. They translate information into knowledge and provide context that no other information service that competes for users’ time and attention like Google or Amazon can do. Unfortunately, the context the librarian brings cannot extend at scale. It’s a personal one-to-one interaction that’s designed for the physical library user, but leaves the virtual user left in the dark. This session will look at Innovative’s new Context Engine, a data platform that ingests and natively transforms metadata from a variety of sources, such as library catalog, authorities, ONIX, content providers, etc., to expose unseen connections between persons, concepts and resources to finally put knowledge in context at scale.

No preparation required or allowed. Participants will be judged (aren’t we all) by equally as brilliant library scientists, based on a criteria ranging from the quantitative use of time and slides to the qualitative general composure and ability to address the topic. A certain amount of artistic license is expected from both participants and judges in their work.

HOW DO I GET INVOLVED? We’re looking for a few hearty folks to join in as:
  • Participants – Sign up early to secure your spot. We’re looking for up to 8 contestants.
  • Volunteers – We’ll need a few folks on hand to help run the show as timekeepers, impromptu Picasso’s and wardens of security against the intense battles.

S36: Building Towards a Future Where Reproducible and Open Data Science is the Norm
The Open Science movement promotes the sharing of all artifacts of scientific research, including data, code, and methods. This movement has become popular among researchers worldwide, as evidenced by the thriving ecosystem of tools and the numerous training initiatives that have sprung up at various institutions.

An important component of the Open Science movement is open source software, which is essential to progress not only in science but also in engineering, the humanities, and many other fields. Open source software has already enabled several Nobel Prizes, such as for the discovery of gravitational waves by LIGO, and it will likely lead to more prizes in the future. Although researcher-developed software has become widespread, much of this software has not been developed in an efficient or sustainable way. Researcher-developers, while well­ versed in their given disciplines, generally do not have sufficient training and understanding of software best practices to ease development and maintainability and encourage sustainability and reproducibility.

Over the past decade, I have participated in various efforts to create the technical and social infrastructure and the sustainable software needed to enable reproducible research. These efforts include cofounding the grassroots rOpenSci project, which promotes open and reproducible research by enabling the discovery of data, code, and software, Data Carpentry, as well as a new NSF funded initiative called the US Research Software Sustainability Institute (URSSI).

In this talk, I will reflect on lessons learned from these different efforts and explore how libraries can play a fundamental role in enabling reproducible research and promote sustainable software practices.

Data science initiatives are sweeping through higher education in response to a growing demand from industry for job candidates with these skills and for the potential of advancing research across multiple disciplines. A number of recent reports, including an IMLS funded report titled "Shifting to Data Savvy: The Future of Data Science In Libraries", have highlighted opportunities and challenges libraries face to support data science activities in their communities. Out of the recommendations that have been put forward, The Carpentries, an initiative that teaches foundational coding and data science skills to researchers and librarians worldwide, has been identified as one of the more promising opportunities for libraries to explore. This talk will discuss several reports including the IMLS funded report and describe how The Carpentries can be leveraged by libraries to respond to the growing need for data science services and support at their organizations.

Focus Group: Supporting OA Collections in The Open
Supporting OA collections in the open: community requirements and principles is an IMLS-supported project that will convene a series of national forums where community members will contribute their needs, values, and priorities to the discussion of Open Access collection development, elucidating the areas of opportunity and friction and leading to a common vocabulary and framework to discuss collective funding of public goods content.

Through thoughtful moderation that will leverage the insights and interactions of focus group participants, the project team will develop a white paper that clearly articulates the challenges, opportunities, and potential mechanisms for building an OA collection development system and culture and that motivates the community toward collective action.

2 focus groups will take place at ER&L 2019 to support this project.

S45: The Openness of Electronic Resource Management
Open Access content is a growing part of the overall scholarly literature. In many places, this work has been separated out from technical services into digital scholarship teams. This session is designed to show how to incorporate open access management into the framework most research libraries use for subscription and one-time purchase electronic resource management. In particular, the focus will be mapping workflow for open access management alongside those aspects of electronic resource management most are familiar with: selection, acquisition, implementation, evaluation, troubleshooting, and preservation. Small groups will be convened to tackle a single aspect of the workflow chain and develop a preferred approach for the integration. This will then be discussed in the session at large for feedback and input. At the end of the hour and a half, participants should gain a sense of how the work of open access management can be combined with electronic resource management.

Data science skills for cleaning, manipulating, analyzing and formatting data are important for staff throughout libraries & archives, but they are often difficult to build and maintain without support. How do we quickly skill up library staff when professional development budgets are often lacking and we lack a support system at our individual institutions? We addressed this question by creating the New England Library Carpentry Consortium (NESCLiC), which consists of nine academic libraries who joined forces in 2017 to share the cost and benefits of a membership with The Carpentries. The Carpentries provide pedagogical training, administrative support, and instructional materials on a wide variety of data science topics. This presentation will walk through the history of NESCLiC, highlight successes and struggles, provide tips to bring back to your institution, and give a taste to the type of instruction we provide to our library staff.

Lunch & Learn: Paths to Reference: How Today's Students Find and Use Reference Resources
SESSION VIDEO NOW AVAILABLE

The digital age has provided students with access to a vast variety of free online resources, alongside their library's offerings, making the way they find and use reference resources more complex than ever before. Previous research and discussions around scholarly reference largely focus on how resources specifically support students when they are conducting research. Patricia Hudson, Associate Director for Institutional Marketing, will share how Oxford University Press has taken a wider perspective in a new white paper exploring how students more generally seek contextual information.

Paths to Reference: How Today's Students Find and Use Reference Resources considers the nature of students' needs, and their decision making, in order to understand how they utilize information to support a range of activities central to their studies. The white paper draws from a large multinational survey with students from a range of established and emerging markets, supported by a series of in-depth interviews. Paths to Reference offers a new perspective on how reference resources support today's students.

Following a discussion of the white paper’s findings, Molly Balikov, Senior Editor: Reference Editorial at Oxford University Press, will speak to how this research has impacted OUP’s own publishing program, including the launch of the new Oxford Research Encyclopedia Program.

Join us to gain insight into how today’s students and researchers find and use reference resources! To view the white paper, please visit www.oup.com/academic/pathstoreference

S54: Confronting the elephant in the room: Cleaning and Wrangling Data for Collections and Scholarly Services
Have you attended a presentation in which data visualizations answered key questions for stakeholders? You plan to replicate it for your library, only to find that you are missing the intermediate steps of how to get the data into a usable state. This presentation will call the elephant out.

It is often stated that 80% of time in an analysis project is devoted to data cleaning. This is certainly a challenge for libraries as the data comes from so many different sources. It is the getting, cleaning, and transforming phase, which feeds into the visualization and modeling phase; yet, we often gloss over this part of our work. This presentation will break down the challenges of collecting and creating collections datasets and merging them together into interactive visualizations. This included gathering and cleaning data, fuzzy merging messy text strings, reshaping data from wide to long format, and making decisions on handling duplicate and missing values. The wrangling of data together into an interactive visualization with data filters adds immense value by enlarging the context of decision-making.


This presentation will discuss case studies demonstrating ways that data expertise has elevated our work with collections and in the creation and dissemination of scholarship. Discussing the challenges of data wrangling will make assessment feasible for librarians wanting to review their collections and projects. It will also serve as another call to data providers to provide clean, standardized, and interoperable data.

EP04: Creating an e-book revolution through training
The benefits of e-books in academic libraries, most notably unnecessary physical storage and greenhouse gas reductions, cannot be overlooked. What’s more, e-book functionality provides users with 24-hour remote access, the ability to annotate and search full text, as well as some accessibility tools unavailable through print. Though e-books have many benefits to libraries, there is still some resistance to them. Attitudinal barriers are not the only issue associated with e-book usage in academic libraries. The literature reveals that many users are unaware that their libraries provide e-books or do not know how to find them. The literature also states that users may have misconceptions about e-books and/or may not understand how to exploit them effectively. It is not enough to acquire e-books if users cannot find them or are resistant to using them. Suggestions that users may benefit from more detailed instruction that will enable them to effectively find e-books, understand their access options, and exploit the platform functionality are frequently encountered in the LIS literature. This poster presentation will provide a summary of the most recent literature on e-book attitudes, and usage to illustrate the current perceptions and status of the format among academic library users. By starting with the literature, I will be better positioned to explain why I believe e-book literacy is an effective tool in combating possible resistance and lack of knowledge and ability in using e-books. It is also my intention to share our experiences providing e-book training to campus members. I will provide examples of the methods of instruction we have made available at our institution, including face-to face class visits; a face-to-face faculty workshop; vendor specific e-book libguides; and institutionally customized video tutorials.

Supporting OA collections in the open: community requirements and principles is an IMLS-supported project that will convene a series of national forums where community members will contribute their needs, values, and priorities to the discussion of Open Access collection development, elucidating the areas of opportunity and friction and leading to a common vocabulary and framework to discuss collective funding of public goods content.

Through thoughtful moderation that will leverage the insights and interactions of focus group participants, the project team will develop a white paper that clearly articulates the challenges, opportunities, and potential mechanisms for building an OA collection development system and culture and that motivates the community toward collective action.

2 focus groups will take place at ER&L 2019 to support this project.

VPATs intend to measure conformance of section 508 standards by information and communication technology (ICT). Many libraries request VPATs, but aren't sure what to do with them. Implementing an Accessibility Remediation Guide, based on the VPAT, into the E-Resources Workflow will help libraries assess the usability of their purchased ICT by users with disabilities. This session seeks to de-mystify VPAT categories and web accessibility standards for new library professionals or library professionals who are new to digital accessibility. This session will also introduce several different iterations of checklists and accessibility remediation guides, as well as other useful digital accessibility resources, and offer real-life examples of practical implementation of these tools into a digital acquisitions workflow.

Her talk will explore how data has been used as a tool for social change from the past examination information trailblazers as Ida B. Wells, Jane Addams and W.E.B.  Du Bois, and discuss presently how various types of organizations have begun to define how they are working to have an impact with data.  In a TEDx style reflective discussion, Copeny will go over lessons learned, poignant discoveries in being one of the first data scientist in the United States to work in a public library.  Her work seeks to answers, what is the public library’s role in utilizing data science for social change?  Through the sharing of her experiences she will explore techniques on how each of us can work to answer how we can influence social change for the future with data.

W05: Teach Your Staff to Troubleshoot E-Resources: Practical processes for documenting and implementing a troubleshooting training curriculum
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.

W08: Fundamentals of Licensing and Negotiation
Electronic resource librarians are expected to communicate with publishers, library directors, university legal counsel, procurement, systems, ILL departments, fellow librarians and library staff as experts in e-resource licensing.  In addition to understanding licenses, electronic resource librarians are expected to negotiate licensing terms and conditions, including pricing, with vendors.  Yet electronic resource librarians are not usually trained in either legal matters or negotiation theory and strategy, making it a daunting prospect to those new to the responsibility.  This course will provide the fundamentals that will prepare e-resource librarians to step-into these roles with confidence.

This course will be broken down into two parts.  We will begin with a section on license agreements which will provide an overview of the role of license agreements in the electronic environment, walk the attendees through a typical license, and discuss the issues that various sections and clauses may present.   We will discuss emerging licensing trends and issues, such as the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which is making licensing products from Europe a challenge. We’ll look at SERU, some model licenses, and various pricing negotiation factors, including user levels, FTE factors and university classification tiers. We will conclude with a discussion of the practicalities for reviewing and editing license agreements and creating schedules and addenda that cover additional terms and requirements not generally part of a standard agreement.

Section two of the course will focus on helping attendees develop negotiation skills and the confidence to employ them.  Using the basic tenants of the Harvard Negotiation Project’s principled bargaining practices, published in Getting to Yes, attendee will learn solid negotiation fundamentals and how to take a systematic, informed approach to negotiating.  We will also discuss a strategy for working with vendors from year to year to keep annual renewal costs down over time.  Tips and strategies for handling various negotiation scenarios will be provided, with a break-out session for attendees to collaboratively problem solve a challenging negotiation situation.
