Supporting the move to online learning: Library collections and OER in the virtual classroom

Academic libraries continue to improve their two-pronged support of both remote and affordable learning, but there have been challenges with scalability and faculty adoption. In this session, Rosemary Arneson, University Librarian at the University of Mary Washington, will share her experience using a reading list solution integrated into the library's collections to help faculty incorporate online resources quickly and easily into the virtual classroom. Jessie Ransom, Teaching and Learning Product Specialist for Ex Libris, will also share best practices and tips for data-based decision making, drawing from her extensive experience covering diverse institutions across North America.

E-Resource Migration to Alma: from Dual to Unified Management

University of South Carolina Libraries have multifaceted, multi-campus and various consortium journal packages which contain many thousands of titles. Unlike many other libraries, their Libraries have historically relied on both the traditional Integrated Library System (ILS) and a link resolver to effectively manage their electronic titles including purchasing and holdings data. This presentation discusses our decision making regarding electronic resources migration, strategies employed, and lessons learned. The presenter will focus on pre-migration data clean-up, Alma link resolver and P2E forms, data testing, and project management.

From "A"-ll (of the problems) to "Z"-ilch (problems): Promoting enhanced user productivity through library database A-Z cleanup efforts

This presentation will detail these "in-progress" workflows, and detail our database clean-up project, with a focus on enhancing researcher productivity and staff efficiency. Attendees will learn how to use tools provided by vendors such as Ex Libris to handle database management, and how they support VCUL's goal through their recently deployed Database Search functionality within their Primo Discovery System. Also, time will be allotted for attendees to share their own database and workflow experiences, hopefully, leading to further insights that can be taken back and implemented at their own libraries.
