Sponsored by MDPI. Offered as part of a joint project with UNC Chapel Hill School of Information and Library Science. This seminar will offer an intensive boot camp on acquisitions from three different perspectives: public services, technical services, and the vendor side. The major emphasis is on the nuts and bolts of the acquisitions process from selecting materials to articulating the return on investment to the parent organization (academic/special/public libraries). Using an active learning approach, attendees will gain pragmatic knowledge of strategies and best practices to manage a variety of material types, such as e-books, print materials, and other e-resources. This class is ideally suited for librarians new to selection and acquisitions workflows.

Topics:
  • Collection Management Overview
  • Budgeting
  • Assessing User Needs / Selecting Materials
  • Acquisitions Workflows
  • Negotiation Strategies & Legal Issues
  • Collections Assessment
  • (E)Resources Management

All About the User Experience: Researcher Perspectives on Access, Privacy, and Security in Scholarly Communications
Registration Cost: $150 
Register Now
Add to Existing Conference Registration - log in and click gear icon in the "Actions" column to the right of your 2018 Conference registration information.


Presented jointly with the Society for Scholarly Publishing (SSP). Today’s researchers have enough on their plates without having to worry about off-campus access to content, who is monitoring their use of information resources and why, and what happens if there is a security breach. Publishers, platform, and service professionals rarely use their own tools in the way researchers do, so they may not understand the growing frustration around these three intertwined topics. Librarians are often left trying to help confused and frustrated users and trying to communicate with information providers to improve the situation for all. With illegal use of private data, data theft, and increasing demands for more control over personal data, it’s time to hear from researchers about their experiences in navigating the world of content and services within the library and beyond, and craft strategies for staying focused on the user experience. What do researchers think about how platform and service companies should manage the delicate tradeoff between personalization and privacy? How might new regulations affect the provider-researcher relationship? How can libraries manage these same concerns for their researchers? Join us to better understand the end user perspective and the hurdles researchers face daily in conducting their research by hearing directly from them, and leave with strategies for looking at your platforms and services in new ways. With a roundtable format and time for an open mic session, we will craft a lively interactive session to place the focus back on the researcher.

Data Curation Workshop: Tools and Techniques for Today
Registration Cost: $150

In the past year we have seen how quickly and easily scientific data can be removed from government websites and rendered inaccessible to the public. Libraries have a resposibility to step inito the breach and provide safe places for data to be stored. In the case of Academic Libraries it is even more important that they not only provide archival storage for data but that they also encourage their faculty to follow good data storage practices. All too often research data is improperly documented and archived, which can lead to headaches for other researchers looking to replicate experiments or sift the data for their own needs.

This workshop will describe good data storage and documentation practices, look at some of the data curation models currently in use by libraries, examine common data types that need to be archived, and give attendees practice in working with these different data types. Attendees should leave the workshop prepared to either pilot a data curation project at their own library or evaluate the needs of an existing project.

Managing Vendor Relationships
Registration Cost: $150 
Register Now
Add to Existing Conference Registration - log in and click gear icon in the "Actions" column to the right of your 2018 Conference registration information.


Libraries and vendors are all too often trapped in the paradigm of swapping content and services for dollars. Pivoting from this transactional model, we will explore answers to questions like the following: How can librarians and vendors collaborate to create better resources and services? What can impede these relationships? What are best practices for working together effectively and ethically? How can we build, negotiate, and sustain these relationships for mutual benefit? And when conflict inevitably arises, how do we deal with it?

This proposal is based on a well-received and well-attended panel held at ALA Midwinter 2018. Building on that Midwinter event, this Charleston preconference features a mix of librarians and vendors who will each present and share stories illustrating principles and practices of good/bad relationship management. They will participate in a moderated discussion drawn from prepared questions and live attendee Q&A. We plan to solicit questions from attendees in advance of the event. We will conduct think-pair-share exercises and potentially small-group workshops to discuss real-world scenarios.

This session is distinctive because it focuses uniquely on vendor relationships. This topic is necessary because these relationships enable and sustain collaborations, facilitate negotiations, and mitigate discord. This preconference is relevant because panelists come from a variety of vendors, institutions, and backgrounds and come primed to address attendees’ expressed information needs.

Open education has emerged as a powerful movement for reducing costs and improving student success. As a community, however, academics have only begun to scratch the surface of the potential for open education to transform the way we share knowledge. By empowering librarians, students, presses, and practitioners to share their expertise and experience, OER can shine a light on underrepresented voices and share cutting edge practices in new and exciting ways. Building on our current IMLS-funded work (LG-72-17-0132-17) on collaborative creation of OER for teaching issues in scholarly communication, this hands-on workshop will prepare you to design an open learning object like a video, lesson plan, game, or hack, that shares your own story and expertise.

Foundations of E-Resource Acquisitions
Registration Cost: $150 

E-resources are well-entrenched in academic library collections, but many libraries still face challenges related to staffing and managing these resources at scale. Despite the common belief that e-resources require less work than print resources, staff involved with managing these resources quickly discover that these resources do not manage themselves. Considering their heavy usage, significant cost, and importance to library patrons, it is essential that libraries acquire and manage e-resources as efficiently and effectively as possible. Presented by two experienced e-resources librarians with input from a vendor representative, this session will provide an introduction to e-resource acquisitions, its related concepts and workflows, and an overview of supporting tools. Presenters will cover best practices for each stage of the e-resources lifecycle from an acquisitions perspective. The majority of the session will focus on acquiring and providing access to online materials, as well as how to handle changes to e-resources, such as cancellations and title transfers. Throughout the session, participants will also learn about high and low-tech solutions to common problems faced by staff who are responsible for acquiring e-resources for their library’s collection.

Negotiating with Vendors
Registration Cost: $150 - register through main conference registration page 

The introduction of digital content created a new link in the information chain: the license. Almost every librarian responsible for arranging electronic access to information has had to review or negotiate not just prices but contractual terms, adding hours — sometimes frustrating hours at that — to the process of buying materials. But few have legal training, and most non-sales people haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about what underpins successful negotiations.

Negotiating with Vendors brings together librarians and vendors to help you prepare for these discussions. You’ll come away with a better understanding of what is involved in negotiating, why licenses matter, and how to use them to safeguard your rights and ensure that both party’s obligations are made clear. Some of the dizzying legalese will come into focus, and armed with fresh insights you’ll be able to approach license discussions with less anxiety and doubt.

Session Outline:
  • Bruce Strauch starts the session off with a discussion of the legal aspects.
  • Ward Shaw will discuss his experiences leading Uncover.
  • Kasia Stasik from Harassowitz will discuss negotiating from an agent's point of view.
  • Marjorie Hlava will discuss her experience as a business women.
  • Michael Gruenberg will discuss his experiences negotiating both products and services.
  • Adam Chesler from AIP will discuss his experiences as a publisher.
  • Rick Burke will discuss his experiences as a librarian and consortia leader.
