RDA Jane-athon [$] Preconference/Institute, Ticketed event Moscone Convention Center
2024 (W)
Description :

You’ve heard about hackathons--but have you ever heard of a Janeathon? Drawing on the hackathon model of bringing people together to explore new ideas by setting them to task equipped only with software and their collective gumption and enthusiasm, ALA Publishing and the RDA Development Team announce the first ever event designed to catalog Jane Austen resources with software specifically designed to use RDA. In addition to building practical experience with ‘native’ (not MARC-based) RDA, participants will explore the very real issues inherent in using Resource Description Framework (RDF) statements in aggregated “packages” ready to contribute to the Linked Data world.

NISO/BISG 9th Annual Forum: The Changing Standards Landscape Access or Ownership: Evolving Business Models and Your Institution Exhibitor session, Program Moscone Convention Center
3012 (W)
Description :

Standards are critically important elements that can make any business process more efficient. The traditional print subscription services model, the process of handling standing book orders by libraries, and even the process of buying, selling, and consuming e-books through a variety of platforms all require standardized business processes to efficiently get content from publishers through vendors to libraries and ultimately to patrons.

As our community adapts to changing paradigms regarding service and ownership models specific to digital publishing, both the library and publishing communities need to consider the implications of these changes. Print content distribution was centered on a sales model, where the transfer of ownership of a physical object was a core element of the transaction; this is often not the case with digital assets. Generally, content is licensed and access is limited; by rights, by term, or by community served. The implications of this shift are quite broad both for content providers as well as libraries. What are the business practices, roles and responsibilities, on both sides of the new digital exchange that all parties need to be aware of and incorporate to ensure efficient information exchange?

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.
