W01: Is this thing on? Learning the basics of establishing E-resource access
**THIS SESSION IS AVAILABLE TO IN-PERSON ATTENDEES ONLY. AN ADDITIONAL TICKET IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND THIS COURSE**

Taking over E-Resources management? Broadening your skills for a job search? This workshop is designed to show attendees the basic components of establishing access to e-resources, from acquisitions to authentication, including payment, acquisition models, management and discovery systems, user interfaces, publisher platforms, linking, and all the various vendors and consortia which might play a role. The presenters will help you analyze and understand the systems and resources in place at your own library, and connect you with resources to understand them better after you’ve returned from Austin. The workshop is intended to be followed up with a conference session on troubleshooting e-resources access problems, giving attendees the skills to identify, resolve, and track a variety of electronic resource access issues, from simple to complex, once they understand how that access should be functioning.

After attending this course, be sure to add complementing course S37: Fix This: Learning How to Troubleshoot E-Resource Access Problems to your schedule.

W02: Excel for eResource Librarians

**THIS SESSION IS AVAILABLE TO IN-PERSON ATTENDEES ONLY. AN ADDITIONAL TICKET IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND THIS COURSE**

Excel is a valuable tool for eResource librarians - from workflow support, to usage data gathering and analysis, to demonstrating library impact. Unfortunately, many of us can't fit in the time in our day to day work to learn advanced Excel techniques that would make us more efficient and effective. In this workshop, attendees will learn why and how to use advanced tools such as pivot tables, conditional formatting, data tools, and charting functionality.

W03: Using the Crossref API: Pulling and working with Crossref publication and funder metadata in R
**THIS SESSION IS AVAILABLE TO IN-PERSON ATTENDEES ONLY. AN ADDITIONAL TICKET IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND THIS COURSE**

Access the workshop materials at https://osf.io/tz246/. Clone the Azure Notebook at https://notebooks.azure.com/clarke-iakovakis/projects/rcrossref2.

This workshop will begin with an overview of Crossref and the Crossref API. Crossref is a not-for-profit membership organization for scholarly publishing working to make content easy to find, cite, link, assess, and re-use. The Crossref REST API is a unique resource of free, in-depth publisher metadata that is used by the entire lifecycle of global scholarly communications, from funders to publishers to metadata aficionados of all kinds. The API lets anyone search, filter, facet and sample Crossref metadata related to over 106 million content items with unique Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs). Crossref metadata includes a wealth of metadata that can help libraries with literature reviews, collect citation metadata, populate bibliographies with identifiers, track funding information, and more.
Following this overview, participants will use the rcrossref package in R (developed by rOpenScie) to query and extract data from the Crossref API. R is a programming language used to work with data (and metadata). Participants will work through scripts hosted on an interactive cloud-based R coding platform (Microsoft Azure Notebooks). Experience in R is helpful but not required.

This workshop will be of particular value to those working in scholarly communications and collection analysis. Participants will learn how to pull publication metadata by ISSN and article metadata by citation details such as title, author, and DOI, to get back citation counts, open access status, author ORCID iDs, and funder details. From here they can determine if publications are eligible for deposit in a repository, write RIS/BibTeX files, and conduct bibliometric analyses.

Opening Keynote: Libraries and the Practice of Freedom in the Age of Algorithms
How prepared are librarians, and the students they serve, to navigate technologies that are fundamentally changing how we encounter, evaluate, and create information? In the past decade, a handful of platforms have become powerful information intermediaries that help us search and connect but also are tools to foment disinformation, amplify hate, increase polarization, and compile details of our lives as raw material for persuasion and control. We no longer have to seek information; it seeks us. Project Information Literacy has revealed college students’ lived experience through a series of large-scale research studies. To cap a decade of findings, we conducted a qualitative study that asked students, and faculty who teach them, what they know and how they learn about our current information environment. This talk explores what students have taught us, where education falls short, why it matters, and how time-tested library values – privacy, equity, social responsibility, and education for democracy – can provide a blueprint for creating a socio-technical infrastructure that is more just and equitable in the age of algorithms.

WHAT IS IT? BATTLEDECKS OR POWERPOINT-KARAOKE. Participants will present a topic (provided just before they begin), for 3 to 3 and a half minutes, accompanied by 10-15 PowerPoint slides selected and arranged by our team of brilliant library scientists. No preparation required or allowed. Participants will be judged (aren’t we all) by equally as brilliant library scientists, based on criteria ranging from the quantitative use of time and slides to the qualitative general composure and ability to address the topic. A certain amount of artistic license is expected from both participants and judges in their work.

HOW DO I GET INVOLVED? We’re looking for a few hearty folks to join in as:
  • Participants – Sign up early to secure your spot. We’re looking for up to 8 contestants.
  • Volunteers – We’ll need a few folks on hand to help run the show as timekeepers, impromptu Picasso’s and wardens of security against the intense battles.
If you are up for any of these roles, sign up at the registration desk or with the wandering and extremely eager Fun & Games Committee members (or email Jesse Koennecke at jtk1@cornell.edu or @JayTeeKayOne).

Understanding Our Audience: Better Communication with Faculty
The information literacy training offered by most academic libraries is essential to student success. Yet many faculty members don't want to spend time on Info Lit because they want to focus on their own subject matter or do not see the benefit of Info Lit instruction. Hence, we often struggle to communicate the value the library provides. Teagan Eastman and Jared Oates conducted an ethnographic study to better understand the needs and expectations of faculty. The study results have important implications for how we tell people what we do and how we deliver our services.

This panel will offer a robust and interactive discussion of the ways library services should intersect with various tools and programs. When these intersections are successful, it is easier for libraries to assess their impact and improve services. Specifically, the panel will explore how the limitations of interoperability affect different library services, and how vendor provided or locally created tools, especially APIs, support these efforts. The group will examine this topic from technical, contractual, and industry perspectives in order to better understand and solve interoperability challenges. By doing so, libraries and their vendor partners will provide better systems interoperability and workflows for library staff and users.

From institutional repositories and technical workflows to predatory initiatives, open access presents unique challenges for libraries. Small publishers face their own obstacles finding funding for OA and achieving the highest OA standards. This session will show how acknowledging these complexities leads the scholarly community to a richer dialogue about OA.

The session will touch on:

  • How to encourage scholars to participate in an OA Institutional Repository, identify IR gaps in subject areas, ensure access and discoverability in the IR, and discuss the difficulty of cataloging other OA e-resources.
  • Four case studies to examine some ethical dilemmas and unintended consequences of open access initiatives.
  • Variations in OA potential and funding among scholarly disciplines, the possibility of OA through TOME practices, and the ways in which current OA solutions replicate barriers to equity and inclusion
  • Technical obstacles small publishers face with OA discoverability and the partial solutions

Cornell University Library is increasing its attention toward patron privacy, through a multi-pronged approach that incorporates education, awareness, and new tools. One aspect of this project is an idea to warn patrons about our vendors’ (in)attention to patron privacy. We propose a tool that helps patrons understand how vendors might misuse their data, while also sharing our data with other institutions and vendors themselves. The project would raise awareness among all parties, and hopefully guide some vendors to be more selective in what data they collect, and what they do with that data. This session will present the idea, its intentions, and how we hope it will come to fruition.

W04: Teach Your Staff to Troubleshoot E-Resources: Practical processes for documenting and implementing a troubleshooting curriculum
**THIS SESSION IS AVAILABLE TO IN-PERSON ATTENDEES ONLY. AN ADDITIONAL TICKET IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND THIS COURSE**

E-resource troubleshooting is an increasingly complex and time-consuming activity in the era of web-scale discovery. With multiple systems and access pathways involved, effective problem solving requires a sophisticated bundle of knowledge, skills, and tools. How can librarians and staff become effective and efficient troubleshooters? Through hands-on activities and group discussions, workshop participants will learn several practical approaches to documenting their e-resource access environment, systems, and troubleshooting methods, then create a framework for their own e-resources troubleshooting curriculum. Presenters will cover key concepts and troubleshooting tools, and help participants understand how to apply those concepts and tools in their own discovery and access environments. Participants will also learn how to evaluate training effectiveness, along with strategies for practical reinforcement of troubleshooting techniques and skills. The presenters work in an Alma/Primo discovery environment, but this workshop is intended to be system agnostic. Participants will leave this session with drafts of training documents specific to their own environments.
