Lunch and Learn

Room: Salon 3
The powerful combination of Leganto (Course Resource Lists) and Alma (Library Services Platform) brings the library into the classroom. Leganto connects librarians to instructors, who in turn connect students with the library content they need to succeed. Join Ex Libris for lunch, and learn about how the Ex Libris Leganto course resource list solution provides visibility of your library’s resources to instructors building their class resource lists and availability of that content to students taking the class..

Almost everyone working in the library can benefit from exposure to data about how the library operates. But not everyone can create custom reports to understand trends and patterns. This session discusses the design and implementation of analytics dashboards, and the types of data required for decision-making in academic libraries.
Do you build reports for your library or department? You may have the basics down, but what comes next? Come hear one library, experienced in advanced reporting and analytics, share tips, tricks, and best practices. They’ll discuss experiences with community-based reporting and benchmark analytics to better understand their own activities.
As open access academic materials continue to grow in number, libraries must consider how to make them discoverable. Join this panel discussion on the concerns surrounding open access discovery, including vetting content, identifying and locating it within vendor indexes, and raising patron awareness of open access materials within the library.
University of Miami has an initiative to build relationships with faculty and university services. The library has identified strategic cross-campus partnerships, using Leganto for specific and relevant collaborations on the creation, management, and sharing of resource lists. Partnerships include the writing center, the language lab, the book store, and instructors.
Implementing a next-gen library system gives library staff opportunities to assess technical services processes with an eye towards patron needs and more effective use of resources. We will explore how an academic library at a public institution is developing internal staff for a whole new way to run tech services.
What do you get when you develop a unified discovery interface that combines open-source technologies with API-based access to a vendor index? A custom user experience! This session discusses initial goals and motivation for creating such interfaces, technical and practical considerations, user reception, and strategies for discovery development.
