K-12 Libraries Making the TDS: Working with Kids
Tablets in the Classroom: New Strategies New Solutions
A panel of practioners with wide-ranging collective experience as digital innovators in education will discuss topics such as the impact of tablets on school library services to students, issues and solutions surrounding iPads in the library, the implementation and curation of virtual libraries, eBook options for 24/7 reading, essential apps for 1:1 tablet implementation, and more.
Create Your Own: Maker Culture in the Library
The maker movement puts students and users in charge of production and e-publishing, from coding/gaming clubs to students creating and publishing ebooks. Panelists will share successful approaches to these engaging activities, as well as pitfalls and important tips regarding ebook formats, Minecraft for teens and new apps.
Public Libraries Trade Ebooks: New Models, New Solutions
Integrating and Balancing E & P: Big Picture Issues Made Real
As ebooks push more and more into the consciousness of our users and patron demand rises, they also place strong demands on inflexible collection budgets and traditional material selection workflows. How do we organize and prioritize our collection development budgets in the face of stronger presence of ebooks and the expectations of patrons? Do we pursue content driven strategies or format driven strategies? How best to integrate the concurrent selection of print versions and ebook versions of the same title into existing workflows and platforms? How will patron driven acquisitions (PDA) affect budget decisions and workflows? And are our vendors ready and willing to address all these issues with us and create the necessary tools to make an integrated response easier to achieve?
The ABC’s of eBook Discovery
Difficult to use interfaces and Digital Rights Management can make getting eBooks onto our patrons’ devices a challenge. In this session we’ll look at how a few libraries are successfully connecting readers with digital material – from adapting traditional readers advisory techniques to employing discovery layers. Also, we’ll aim high and imagine what an ideal eBook scenario would look like and how it would fit in with other library services.
E and the Academy (Academic Libraries)
Creating a Walled Garden: Digital Textbooks in Higher Education
Digital textbook sales are set to explode. How will this digital shift impact the library and university community? This panel will consider the opportunities and threats presented by digital textbook adoption, including: campus-wide content licensing, support for open education resources, forced adoption of products and brands to deliver content, and the interaction between digital texts and supplementary materials. How will this digital shift to e-texts impact the content, services, and ultimately, the role of the library?
Whither Access after the “Academic Spring”?
The Research Works Act touched off unprecedented attention to open access among faculty and even in the mainstream press. An author boycott of Elsevier, a social-media ferment, and a successful petition to the White House followed. Combined with weighty open-access announcements from European governments, this activity earned the hopeful moniker “Academic Spring.” Yet at the same time, mighty Harvard has admitted defeat in the face of spiraling journal costs, other libraries are tiptoeing away from Big Deals, and faltering university presses are merging with libraries. What just happened? What’s next? How are academic libraries
