How Makerspaces and DIY Science Can Promote STEM Learning at Every Age Author Event, Exhibitor session Moscone Convention Center
124 (N)
Description :

Long before atom-smashers and deep-space probes, there were no separate classes of people labeled scientists or inventors. Fundamental breakthroughs in science and technology were made by ordinary people who felt a passion to explore, build, and create with the tools at hand. Today, the economic importance of STEM is greater than ever, and devices like 3D printers and rich sources of scientific understanding online can empower individuals to new success—if they are properly motivated to engage with STEM subjects and if they have access to those resources. The role that libraries can play in making those connections has therefore never been more crucial.

John Rennie, editorial director of MHE’s AccessScience, will lead this panel of Makerspace innovators and leading librarians. They will discuss the best practices for libraries that want to encourage hands-on exploration and curiosity-driven learning of STEM subjects, with case studies from successful programs across a wide range of ages. They will also look at exciting new information resources that can help libraries and their users develop the knowledge and skills to participate effectively in a Maker-friendly world.

Developing and Strengthening Library Collections with Culturally Relevant African Materials Program Moscone Convention Center
3020 (W)
Description :

As libraries and information networks grow across Africa, and more Africans make their home in North America, librarians on both continents are challenged to respond to local needs and provide culturally relevant materials to their patrons. Librarians and information professionals in many African countries, sometimes partnering with American colleagues, are finding innovative ways to ensure that libraries serve ALL the people in their target populations. Presenters will discuss projects, services, research studies, culturally relevant materials including local languages, preservation and dissemination of indigenous knowledge, and locally relevant digital projects. Come, to hear creative ideas and meet potential partners.

Agenda

1-1:10: Call to order, announcements, co-chair announcement: Co Chairs to be Erica Lynn Titkemeyer from UNC and Ivey Glendon from University of Virginia

1:10-1:30: Erica Lynn Titkemeyer will discuss work at the Southern Folklife Collection (SFC) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. As the Project Director on an initiative titled "Extending the Reach of Southern Audiovisual Sources", and funded by the Mellon Foundation, I have been with the co-principal investigators to develop and implement a large-scale digitization program for our moving image and audio collections. Dedicated to collecting, preserving and disseminating vernacular music, art, and culture related to the American South, the SFC holds over 250,000 audio recordings, 3,500 video materials, and over 8 million feet of film. With a significant portion of these recordings residing on unstable formats, and 60% of the collection requiring more complete processing and cataloging, the SFC has been working to assess needs related to conservation and access. In this talk I would plan to discuss our initial challenges and processes in developing workflows and prioritization tools, along with our future plans, with a particular focus on developing improved visibility and access to our digitized collections via online streaming.

1:30-2:00: George Blood, George Blood Audio and Video, “Number Crunching: Or How I Learned I Wanted to Participate in Preservation Statistics”

"If you can't measure it you can't control it". In this presentation we'll look at how statistics can be used in preservation: how do our stats compare with other institutions (baselining), how can we we make our limited staff and funds go further (resource allocation), how do we keep making the same mistakes (quality control), if we spend more on X will we do better (quality assurance), make better estimates of resources needed (budget development)? Building upon common library concepts, such as rules of entry and tracking reference requests, we'll show how a simple spreadsheet and "make chart" will help you do a better job, demonstrate improvement, and make the case to management and funders.

2:00-2:30: Emily Shaw
The Ohio State University Libraries holds roughly 80,000 Masters Theses deposited by OSU graduate students over the decades. Like many of our peers, we have been converting high-use theses and dissertations and those requested through Interlibrary Loan for some time, and depositing them into the OhioLINK ETD Center. Access and download statistics for OSU’s digitized, retrospective theses and dissertations in the OhioLINK ETD Center indicate the high value and impact of these works, so the Libraries decided to go big: In 2014, we went out to bid for the conversion of 20,000 Masters Theses over 2 years. As a result of the pricing obtained through this competitive bid process, we will be able to convert roughly 1/3 more volumes than estimated for the amount of funding originally allocated to this project. This presentation will outline the inception, scope and process for this ongoing project, and discuss issues related to access, preservation and rights management.

On Choosing A Preservation File Format for Video: “TIFFs are too big to store”, or “We Used JPEGs and Nobody Died”

George Blood, President
What librarian hasn’t struggled with storage capacity? Ever larger library buildings and ever higher data densities have not solved the fundament problem in the cultural heritage field: Information takes up space. Care in acquisition and prudent deaccessioning help, but stuff keeps coming. While storage becomes more efficient and cheaper every day, the fact that it will be easy to store digital video in 20 years doesn’t help us today – in 20 years most legacy video formats will be inaccessible as machines die of old age. What then do we do now? If you cannot afford 10-bit uncompressed files (at a whopping 100GB per hour), and you lack the IT infrastructure to support JPEG2000/MXF, how are you to preserve video today. This talk will explore some of the considerations on the slippery slope of choosing a compressed format for storing moving image collections.

What goes where? Bringing a new repository online at the Ohio State University Libraries

Emily Shaw, Head, Preservation and Reformatting
Like most libraries, the Ohio State University Libraries did not enter the digital library sphere with clear policies and a unified, interoperable infrastructure for managing all of our digital collections. The Libraries has a long-standing commitment to making our unique collections accessible to the campus and global communities and maintains an expertly managed and curated Institutional Repository (the Knowledge Bank). But for more than a decade, OSU’s digital collections developed in response to the requirements of specific projects. Thus, for the past several years, the OSU Libraries has been investing heavily in the planning and development of a robust repository infrastructure to enhance access, management and preservation of digital collections of all types. This presentation will give an overview of our planning process and share some of the workflow documentation currently under development.

Letting somebody else do it.

Frances Harrell, Preservation Specialist
In 2014 The Jamaica Plain Tuesday Club (JPTC), an all-volunteer history and culture organization in Boston, had a selection of their archives digitized by the Boston Public Library, the images transferred to the Digital Commonwealth preservation repository, and the associated metadata aggregated by the Digital Public Library of America. As this model of aggregation grows through the influence of the DPLA, small organizations like this with digital collections will increasingly depend on their colleagues at larger institutions to shoulder the burden of long-term preservation. Using the JPTC as a case study, this talk will take the perspective of the small organizations who want to see their collections increase in reach and impact, and will raise some of the difficult questions the preservation field faces in attempting to steward the digital heritage of these limited-resource compatriots.
