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.

Maximum Overdrive: Growing a Shared Collection of Audio and ebooks for Academic Libraries
The MOBIUS Overdrive Shared Collection is now more than a year old and continues to attract attention and serve as a national model for other academic groups. Join us to learn how the collection has become one of OverDrive's most successful academic consortial collections. With a focus on affordability and how the Overdrive collections can contribute to institutional cost savings, we will talk about the growth in the collection this year and the factors that we believe contribute to its ongoing success. We will also share how we resolved ongoing issues, new strategies for promoting to faculty and students, and new developments and features that make OverDrive a powerful tool for academic libraries.

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.

Create Lists is a hallmark of Innovative systems going back decades.  Create Lists enables you to export selected fields from a review file to a delimited file and do many things with it, from downloading it, to prepping it for further revisions, to creating a Featured List of records that can be browsed by patrons from the public catalog.  Learn more about some of the nuances this amazing application can do for you.
