Time to Make a Decision with Decision Center
Decision Center is a web-based, user friendly reporting software that allows library staff to analyze circulation and collection costs and trends without requiring you to perform complex Boolean queries in advance. There are many queries already pre-defined in Decision Center; we will only be demonstrating and practicing some of these in training, but encourage users to explore all of the possible reports on your own.

Decision Center is an integrated solution and operates seamlessly with Sierra.

Destination Unknown: Repurposing a Collection Stuck in Transit
In 2015, Covenant Seminary began implementing plans for a second campus. The Library received a donation of over 2,000 books to create a library on-site in Nashville, TN. Using a combination of paper work forms, Sierra Mobile Worklists, and simplified technical and physical processing, the bulk of this collection was ready to ship to Nashville within a year. When evolving realities on the ground failed to live up to expectations, library leadership decided this collection would best serve the institution’s needs if located on-site in St. Louis for the indefinite future. Using Create Lists, Excel, lots of math, and elbow grease, we set up this collection in a special location within the Covenant Seminary Library in St. Louis. We'll talk about barcode numbering; prepping and sorting physical books; quick technical and physical processing; collection development to augment the designated book donation; prep for shipment and unloading off-site; the actual set up when off-site became on-site; and the use of the collection and the space to-date.

Making Do with Less: Maximizing Personnel, Budget, and Potential
If you have worked in a library for any measure of time, your budget has been cut. Continually, library administration is asked to do more with less, or at the least, to do the same with less. While smaller libraries have historically been the main target of budget cuts, larger libraries are now experiencing unprecedented budget cuts as well. This presentation will look at practical ways our library and other libraries have dealt with budget and staffing cuts. The presentation will also look at budget management from a business standpoint, as well as trends and information in the greater library community. Budget cuts, whether for personnel, services, or resources, seem to be inevitable. How can libraries respond pro-actively instead of reactively? How can student workers be used for additional library tasks? How can we effectively defend our current budgets to our administration?

Martin Luther Goes Viral: Using a Rare Book Collection and Printing History to Teach Information Literacy
Today’s “information revolution” is in many ways a new permutation of the revolution brought on by the “printing revolution” of the late 15th and early 16th centuries. Martin Luther, for example, was a relatively obscure cleric who suddenly found himself addressing the world. This was not intentional on his part, but a new technology allowed his message to “go viral,” and he found himself at the forefront of a revolution. In a similar manner, today’s “digital revolution” has given voice to people who previously had no way to communicate with a wide audience, and has had tremendous social, political, and cultural implications. But it also has implications for students and their research. In this presentation, I would show how I use materials in the rare book collection at Drury’s F. W. Olin Library to teach students lessons on information literacy, and illustrate how I draw parallels between early information technology and that of today. The lessons for students are that we all have a tendency to assign tremendous authority to texts (sometimes even erroneous texts, and we must remember that the Internet is very text-intensive), and that images, whether they be today’s memes or a 16th century woodcut cartoon, sometimes communicate ideas more effectively than a text. Ultimately, I aim make students think about how they approach online texts and materials, and how they judge the validity of source material they find online and elsewhere.

We will present the results of our study on the affective dimensions of information literacy, including frustration and anxiety with the process of and expectations surrounding academic research, feelings of information overload, and internalized guilt and shame about relying on web sources, as well as the intersections with class status and economic privilege. We examine themes that emerged through directed conversations with focus groups of students enrolled at the Springfield, Missouri campus of Ozarks Technical Community College. We will also describe the affective thresholds that are suggested by our findings, and the implications for teaching and learning.

RDA Basics to Get You Started
Resource Description and Access (RDA), first implemented in 2013, introduced several changes to descriptive cataloging guidelines. Whereas many libraries were early adopters of RDA, there are still libraries who have not yet adopted RDA or have not adopted it fully. If your library has not yet adopted RDA, or if your library has adopted RDA, but you are feeling overwhelmed with the task of keeping up with the changes to RDA, this presentation will help bring you up-to-date. The presenters will cover changes to several fields, including main entry, title and statement of responsibility, publication information, physical description, and the new 33X fields. In addition, presenters will suggest some beneficial freely available resources to aid in understanding and accessing RDA. An overview of recent changes to RDA, MARC, and BIBFRAME will also be discussed.

The after-hours Library concept: open+ with Bibliothecha
open+ is a comprehensive system that allows libraries to provide more flexible hours, making them more accessible to the community. Designed to complement staffed library hours, open+ can be implemented in a number of different ways to meet various library service models. From extending access to an entire library or only a section of it, providing full self-service resources or mainly a holds pick-up area, open+ allows libraries the flexibility to extend access in the way that best meets the needs of their community and space. There is no one size fits all approach with this technology.
Adding more open hours in the mornings or evenings can create a consistent and convenient schedule for your community and meet the needs of different users. Currently averaging 52.8 open hours per week, US public libraries have a way to go before they approach 2008’s high mark of nearly 60 hours, according to Library Journal1. open+ allows libraries to easily increase their hours to provide the most convenient access to their community without a large need for increased staffing cost.

Information Literacy Mission Statements and the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education
In 2017, Western Kentucky University completely revamped the mission statement for their Information Literacy program. I was involved as the Research Instruction Coordinator and chair of the task force. We had several important goals, including ensuring that our IL program met the needs of the institution and that it fit into other university initiatives. More universal, however, was the need to integrate the mission and goals for IL with the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education and the Information Literacy VALUE Rubrics from the American Association of Colleges & Universities. During this process, we learned valuable lessons that can be replicated by academic libraries of any size. Some of these principles have already been used at Missouri Valley College.

ArticleReach (Benefits of, Process, and Getting Statistics)
I have been using ArticleReach since May of 2017. First while working at East Central College and then when I transferred to St. Charles Community College. We are fairly active with ArticleReach in both requesting and supplying articles. The challenging part has been keeping statistics since there are other libraries within our cluster that also participate in ArticleReach. It is easy to get statistics for the cluster, but more difficult for the individual library. While I'm sure my method for pulling statistics may be flawed, it works. Through this session, perhaps others can share how they keep statistics.

Resurrection of the Liaison
The library wanted to help facilitate growing the Library/Faculty relationship, and the liaison program is a perfect opportunity to do just that. Over the last year a committee was formed to rebuild and enhance the library liaison program. New initiatives included publishing a Library Liaison Program LibGuide, creating a timeline with communication templates, conducting a baseline survey and follow up survey, face-to-face meetings between subject librarians and departmental liaisons, hosting a liaison appreciation event and more robust involvement in the department allocation and collection management process. We have seen an increase in open communication with not only department liaisons but all faculty, including instruction sessions for new faculty and by librarians other than the Instruction Librarian, OER inquiries, faculty research consultations, and more student engagement with librarians. The positive remarks from both department liaisons and librarians have been flowing all year!

Affordable Programming-Getting Bang for Your Buck
Over the course of the last year the library has offered many events and programs including Open House, Southern Welcome, Third Thursday community art event, Login at Your Library, Adulting 101 series, voter registration, National Library Week book end painting, Tea for Finals and Open Education Week. The library budgeted less than $1000 for all of this programming! How did the library do it? Used current resources! Some of the programming only required a table, paper, laptop and manpower. Partnerships are a must! Creating partnerships throughout the campus community enhances the library’s ability to provide such programming as Adulting 101, which includes budgeting and finance, housing, mental and physical health and job hunting. Working with other campus departments such as art and even daycare to provide free art displays. We will explore No Cost and Low Cost options and discuss wise investments. It is possible to provide affordable programming and do more with less.

MOBIUS Open Textbook Network Workshop Training
This will be a half-day workshop for librarians interested in learning how to provide Open Textbook Network faculty workshops on their campuses.  If you want faculty on your campus to adopt OER, leading OTN workshops is an effective and straightforward strategy. Since February 2018, MOBIUS members have completed 12 workshops. 63% of faculty who attended went on to say they’d adopt the open textbook they reviewed, and 76% of attendees walked away with a positive perception of OER. Training Outcomes
       
  • How to discuss textbook affordability issues with faculty and other stakeholders
  •          
  • How to address barriers to open textbook adoptions
  •          
  • Tools for successful workshops
  •
