Conversation Starters: Military Writers Workshops: Community Programming for Military Veterans Program Anaheim Convention Center
208A
Description :

Join us for a discussion of our experiences organizing, planning, and promoting a series of writing workshops for military veterans in the Washington, D.C. area. Our project builds upon the work of Amy Hartman and Holly Baumgartner that was featured in American Libraries in November 2011; as federal librarians, we were eager to extend such an excellent opportunity for education and lifelong learning to a greater number of veterans. Come learn about the importance of community programming for military veterans, the challenges that libraries may face in the process of developing programs for veterans, and the steps involved in designing our writing workshops! Attendees will gain an appreciation of the art of writing memoir, and will learn that memoir writing offers non-professional writers opportunities to enrich their lives by creating stories based on life experiences, as well as to contribute to the cultural and historical record. Presenters will also discuss marketing, outreach, and promotion of writing workshops, and strategies for overcoming the challenges associated with recruiting participants. We hope you will join us!

Conversation Starters: Discovery Here, Discovery There: Pros and Cons of Local or Remote Hosting of Discovery Tools Program Anaheim Convention Center

Discovery systems are powerful tools to help users find information resources across the breadth of the library's online holdings. Many of these tools offer APIs for libraries to build their own user interfaces to the search index, allowing a library to keep site visitors within the library until the time they access the full text of a resource. What are the pros and cons of keeping discovery local? This talk will explore the user interaction, interface design, and user expectations of such homegrown interfaces.

Conversation Starters: Hacking Library School Program Anaheim Convention Center
208A
Description :

The Hack Library School Blog is for, by, and about library school students. Our guiding philosophy is based on the principle of crowd-sourcing information. We seek to create a collaborative environment where other library school students can come together and share information with one another to enrich their education. We hope to bring the virtual discussion to ALA and get people talking.

This conversation starter seeks to bring together students and professionals to talk about issues pertaining to our education and our field. It will be a moderated conversation with guiding questions such as: what aspects of library school curriculum prepare you for the job? What emerging technologies enrich your education? How do you “hack” library school? Hack Library School is about being the change that you want to see. What would you change?

Library school students, new and seasoned professionals are welcome and encouraged to attend and share information.

Books to Go Program Anaheim Convention Center
207B
Description :

Libraries are usually organized for patrons who know what they want-the layout, guiding and catalogue all support the focused user. Research in the UK has demonstrated that many library patrons do not have specific authors and titles in mind; they are looking to be tempted while browsing. Rachel Van Riel will explore the implications of this research for managing library spaces, book collections and displays. She will show how to create an 'Impulse' area near the front door of the library can have a dramatic effect on both circulation and patron satisfaction.

IVDb... For Free!: Implementing an Open Source Digital Repository in a Corporate Library Poster session Anaheim Convention Center
Exhibit Hall Poster Area Table 7
Description :

In 2011, Boston Biomedical Consultants, Inc. (BBC), a Boston-based consulting firm with a focus in the In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) industry, set an initiative in motion to create a digital archive of the information collected over its 35-year history in IVD consulting. Overseen by the Information Services Manager, BBC investigated open source programs to build and maintain a digital archive of the company's intellectual property without a large monetary investment from the firm. Using the DSpace Digital Repository Software, the In Vitro Diagnostics Database (IVDb) was created, archiving the company's library files and providing a searchable online database for staff use in project-based research. This process included developing an IVD-specific controlled vocabulary for cataloging, digitizing a variety of physical documents, purchasing and configuring a server to house the scanned documents and the DSpace software using Ubuntu Linux, and installing, customizing, and populating the system. The result has been a user-friendly, robust database that has proven to be a time-saver for the firm's staff and a valuable research tool created with little monetary investment (~$500 in hardware costs).
