W01 - Workshop! Understanding and Using Altmetrics for Collection Management: An Interactive Overview
You need this ticket from Eventbrite to sign up: Pre-Conf Workshop 1: Understanding and Using Altmetrics for Collection Management: An Interactive Overview.

Libraries rely on multiples types, sources, and interpretations of data to inform collection management decisions, with an emphasis on anticipating and assessing local needs, cost, and use.  With the transition to digitally born and Web-based scholarly communication, altmetrics (“big data” about how scholarship is used on the Web) can tell valuable information about trending sources and scholarly topics, the tools researchers and faculty are using to promote and discuss their scholarship, and the impact of the scholarly communication platforms, such as institutional repositories, that libraries provide.  In this hands-on workshop we’ll explore how to integrate this data into e-resource collection management activities, and the evaluation and promotion of library initiatives. 

The session will cover the following topics and activities:

  • Explanation of altmetrics data, how it is collected and how it should & should not be interpreted
  • Overview of various altmetrics providers and how their tools can be used to discover discussions of research in mainstream media mentions, policy documents, blogs, and social media.
  • How to get a rich picture of “trending” research in all disciplines, which you can use to supplement your collection management decisions.
  • How to uncover the platforms and tools students, faculty, and the public are using to interact with research information.
  • How to gather, analyze, and communicate altmetric data about and within institutional repositories. 

REGISTER HERE! A ticket is needed for this event! Don’t Forget to add a Pre-Conference Workshop when you register for ER&L!

Vegetarian and Gluten-Free options will be available at the luncheon. If you have special dietary needs other than these, please CONTACT US.
Library technology has traditionally centered on the integrated library system (ILS) or library services platform (LSP).  The ILS/LSP provides libraries with a holistic solution to manage all aspects of the library’s operations. Yet, at times, an ‘all-inclusive’ approach to library management may not be required or even desired. Libraries may indeed have an interest in deconstructing the technology ecosphere by choosing those applications or modules that best serve their needs. Done right, a new model, centered on choice, and focused on ‘best of breed’ services and applications, can bring increased efficiencies and result in better services.

Deconstruction may in fact be well underway. Worldwide libraries are stitching together a loosely associated ecosphere of applications. This tapestry – which includes ‘stand-alone’ discovery, self-check systems, and ‘core’ ILS modules – goes beyond library applications, extending into other areas such as business intelligence (BI), customer relationship management (CRM), and financials (ERP). 

Of course, choice has its challenges. How does the tapestry, after all, take shape? The library community, as such, plays a pivotal role in the facilitation of choice. Think increased engagement around interoperability standards, and more involvement in promoting – and developing – open source solutions that best align with a library’s mission. 

This presentation will showcase and discuss approaches to making choice real. Specific topics will include current trends of tying applications together and the concept of community as the cornerstone of a new, deconstructed paradigm in library technology.

Librarian- Vendor relations and discussions can be complicated and troublesome or clear and collaborative or somewhere in between.  Establishing positive communications and relationships between publishers, vendors, institutions and individual librarians is crucial to the effective provisioning of information resources.  This session examines survey results investigating how libraries and vendors might manage communication expectations given the changing nature of scholarly communication. Electronic resources management increasingly widens its breadth and scholarly communication continually grows its depth. Libraries and vendors have complementary and sometimes competing goals which are worthy of discussion.

When people think of "big data," they consider text archives and user behavior and stop there. Every day more media is recorded than was recorded in the entire 20th century and it's only accelerating. Fundamentally, this data is just noise if it's not organized and understandable. As we consider sentiment, emotional content, and object recognition in video, a statement like “that’s a great idea” contains radically more complexity.

Dispelling Myths around Demand Driven Acquisition: Evaluating Shifting Library Budgets and Best Practices for Leveraging Diverse Acquisition Models

No library has an unlimited budget. No one acquisition model fits all libraries. Some recent reports decry ebook acquisitions models like DDA and STL without incorporating correlations between budget trends, collection policies and buying habits or offering concrete solutions.

In truth, navigating ebook collection development in the changing library landscape requires an understanding of the reasons why library budgets are shifting, how collections policies are changing (including the relationship between P&E), and the diverse acquisition models that are available.

During this session we will dispel the current myths around DDA by sharing results from our recent Academic Library Book Purchasing Trends survey and offering best practices for building your larger acquisition strategy—one that includes Print and Electronic books and diverse acquisition models.

  • Explore trends and the reasons behind shifting budgets
  • Expose and discuss common disconnections between collection policies and buying habits
  • Take away best practices for managing collection development by integrating multiple acquisition models into your print and electronic book acquisition program

S65 - True Impact: How to Measure and Drive Deeper User Engagement?
User Engagement is a matter of common parlance in today’s business world. Few managers or investors will assess the performance of a business on how many users or hits it has alone; equally, if not more, important is how “engaged” those users are. Metrics such as “active users” have replaced “unique visitors”, in order to provide a perspective not only of the volume of people benefiting from a resource, but also the scale of impact it is having on them.  Steve Jobs once said, “I would rather a business with 100 impassioned users than 100,000 indifferent ones”.
 
Libraries are catching onto this thinking too. Historically, libraries have had limited tools to monitor or interpret user engagement and this has underpinned the way in which resource development has developed. The traditional approach was the “volume strategy” where, in the absence of insight into our users and with a consequentially hindered pulse on demand, our objective was to provide as many resources as possible at the lowest cost. This has often been dubbed the “just in case” method, where key metrics were volume and cost (e.g. cost per item).
 
Today, we find ourselves firmly in a time of “ROI Assessment” where, with improvements analytics tools, we can now introduce a perspective of “value” into resource assessment. This heighted focus not just on use, not just volume, has spurred new roles in resource assessment and new models such as “patron driven acquisition” where the idea is to provide a greater breadth of resource whilst more closely aligning our budgets to users’ requirements. This has often been dubbed the “just in time” method, where key metrics are cost per use/user, etc.
 
But what of the future? The reality is that we currently have no perspective on the true impact of our resources. The “R” in our current “ROI” metrics will only tell us if someone accessed or used a resource – it does not tell us how they used it, why they used it, and what impact it had on them. We foresee a new era of “Impact Value Assessment” emerging that will, as in business, provide libraries with a more accurate way to gauge the true impact or “value” to our end users.
 
Our libraries collaborated this last year with Kanopy, the video streaming platform, on a project that dove into and explored patron usage behavior (via behavioral tracking tools, events-based-analysis, user surveys, etc) with three objectives in mind:
(1) to better understand not just what our users were using, but why and how they were using it;
(2) to design and build metrics that captured a perspective of end user impact and would complement our ROI analyses; and
(3) to develop tangible approaches for how we could incorporate this information into our acquisition, assessment and promotional activities.
 
We believe that developing reliable engagement ROI metrics will further transform our approach to resources in the digital age, and bring libraries up to speed with industry best practices.

K02 - Doing Media: Learning Futures in a World of Change
Click here to view the FREE live video stream!
The world of media and learning are steadily evolving and young people are at the center of the transition.  In this talk, I explore what researchers have learned about the impact of media technologies in the social and learning lives of children and teens. But even as young people continue to drive change there are many misperceptions about their relationship to technology and learning futures.  Today, young people do not just consume media, they "do media."  The concept of "doing media" and what it means for designing more relevant learning spaces will be explored.  Drawing from ethnographic research and insights generated from more than a decade of studies, I offer some insights on the challenges educators face and the opportunities to reinvent libraries and the learning that happens in them.
