Librarian at California State University, Northridge as well as a Systems
Coordinator for the Private Academic Library Network of Indiana (PALNI)



Open-Source Your Library

There has never been a better time for libraries interested in open-source
software:  server space is getting cheaper all the time, open-source
communities are friendly, and libraries are working together to hack new
services for their patrons. There are certainly challenges to getting
started, such as knowing what kind of expertise your library might need,
where you can get help, and how to choose open-source projects that will
provide the biggest benefit for your library.  At California State
University, Northridge, we've set up a sandbox server that we use for
experimenting with open-source software like Islandora and Guide on the
Side.  This presentation will discuss how your library can create an
experimental sandbox for using open-source software, develop new skills and
harness existing talents, and hack your library services for the
better.auren will be speaking to us about promoting the effective adoption
and use of open-source technology in libraries.







*Putting Users First: Managing the LibGuides 2.0 Migration *

with John Hernandez and Lauren McKeen, Northwestern University



The release of LibGuides 2.0 by Springshare provides a key opportunity to
re-evaluate how the library manages its system of research guides and take
advantage of new functionality. Beginning in the summer of 2014,
Northwestern University Library began its transition to LibGuides 2.0. This
presentation will describe our process for managing change in a way that
allows us to better integrate the user's perspective in our new and
improved service. We will focus on how we gathered user feedback, from both
students and staff, and how we plan to continue integrating their
perspective moving forward.



*On Demand Geeking *

with Victoria Vogel, Amherst Public Library



At Amherst Public Library we believe in providing technology assistance
where it is needed.  We tried scheduling computer training classes, but no
one, or very few would sign up.  So, instead the library advertises
one-on-one technology assistance.  Patrons can make appointments to meet
with a reference specialist for a personalized consultation on their device
or laptop.  We will sit down with the person and troubleshoot simple
computer problems, help them figure out how to use their new Windows 8
laptop, or how to get their downloadable audiobook to play on their
device.  There have been several instances where we have saved the patron
quite a bit of money and aggravation by simply taking the time to listen to
their particular problem and figuring out the best way to communicate the
solution.  One particularly moving encounter involved a patron with sight
and hearing impairments who received assistance on using his iPad.  Another
involved an outreach patron who received a Kindle with his requested ebooks
through outreach and was trained on how to use it.  The service has been
well received and has several repeat customers.



*Best Practices for "Embedded" Library Instruction*

                With Mary Hricko, Kent State University



This presentation will review strategies for teaching library instruction
for blended/online courses. It will discuss important elements to consider
for design and delivery with focus on such models as Quality Matters and
Community of Inquiry. This presentation will discuss how to develop online
learning objects when online instructors do not want to "embed" library
instruction into their courses. Finally, this presentation offer
suggestions for the development of interactive student activities to
promote information literacy and information fluency.



*ACPL Family App*

                With Kris Lill, Allen County Public Library



Smart phones and other digital devices are the fastest growing tools with
which our patrons of all ages engage. The rapidly increasing number of
children, parents and care-givers using smart phones creates both a need
and an opportunity for a mobile application presence that directly
addresses this audience, inviting them into the life of the library. The
ACPL Family App is designed for parents and caregivers of children of all
ages, from birth all the way through elementary school.  It’s intended to
be used by adults and children together, promoting age–appropriate learning
and literacy development. Participants at this session will learn about the
ACPL Family App's unique features, its history and ongoing development, and
its uses.
