Description :

Please join us for the ALCTS Scholarly Communications Interest Group meeting at the American Library Association 2015 Annual Conference in San Francisco, California. We will be exploring how libraries are developing services and programs to support open access policies at colleges and universities.

As more and more institutions pass open access policies, libraries are grappling with how to support the implementation of these policies. This session will look at how these challenges and opportunities are being addressed at a research library system and a liberal arts college.

Our speakers are:

Martin Brennan, Copyright and Licensing Librarian, University of California, Los Angeles

Data migration is inevitable in a world in which technological infrastructures and data standards continue to evolve. Whether you work in a catalog database or a digital library/archives/institutional repository, working with library resource data means that you will eventually be required to usher data from one system or standard to another. Three speakers working in different library contexts will share their data normalization experiences.

Amy Rudersdorf
Assistant Director for Content
Digital Public Library of America

Amy will address data normalization from the digital library perspective.

Terry Reese
Head Digital Initiatives, Associate Professor

Collection Development Issues for the Practitioner Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Hilton San Francisco Union Square
Union Square 19 & 20
Description :

Please join the ALCTS Collection Development Issues for Practitioners Interest Group for a facilitated discussion at the 2015 ALA Annual Conference in San Francisco! Our discussion will focus on three major areas based on librarians’ suggestions:

1. With new library services evolving, librarians are asked to take on new responsibilities in areas such as scholarly communications, data services and digital humanities. However, traditional duties such as collection development are not going away. How do we balance our responsibilities of the new and traditional without sacrificing the quality of our work? How does your library meet this challenge? How do you keep your faculty relationships strong in the face of these new areas?

2. Discovery services have been adopted by libraries of all types. Based on research, we have observed changes in usage patterns as a result of the implementation of discovery services. What are the implications and impact of discovery services on library collection development? How does a discovery platform influence decisions for product and vendor choices? What is the impact on print collections and its management?

3. Libraries invest a lot of time and money to acquire new resources to meet users’ information needs. But how do users know we have something new for them? What are the strategies to market new resources to library users? Do you add new resources to LibGuides? What are the deciding factors to consider on whether to add new titles to LibGuides?

Description :


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.

1:00pm - 2:30pm
Electronic Resources Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Marriott Marquis San Francisco

• What purchase or access model(s) is your library using to provide ebooks to users? What makes it work for you library?
• How are your users most frequently discovering your ebooks?
• What has been the best way to gather user feedback about ebooks? What trends has this helped identify?
• What experiments has your library tried with ebooks and how did impact the current approach?

The election for the next Chair-Elect/Chair will follow the discussion.
