W05: So Now It’s Your Job to Fix This: Learning How to Troubleshoot E-Resource Problems
Taking over E-Resources management? Broadening your skills for a job search? This workshop is designed to give attendees the basic tools to identify, resolve, and track a variety of electronic resource access issues, from simple to complex.  It will begin by introducing attendees to the different elements involved in making an online resource accessible to users and then describe the common ways in which the components can break. The presenters will bring case studies and real-life examples to demonstrate what participants can expect once they’re professional e-resources troubleshooters. Using hands-on activities and drawing on the vast experience of the presenters, the workshop will walk through how to the details of how each system  component functions, so that attendees can ascertain for themselves the cause of sample  access problems. After learning how to diagnose an issue, attendees will learn the steps needed to fully resolve the issue, how (and to whom) to communicate regarding the resolution, and the importance of tracking all this activity for future use.  Participants will be able to take away practical techniques and skills that they can immediately put into practice in their own work environments. The presenters currently work in an OCLC WMS/WorldCat Discovery consortial  environment, but have experience running SFX, 360 Link, Primo, EDS, and SirsiDynix Symphony from previous institutions, so the workshop is intended to cover issues faced in those systems as well.

This workshops will be available to in-person attendees only and requires an additional ticket. It will not be available via the Online Conference.

W03: Getting Started with MarcEdit 7: New Tools, New Models, New Automation Opportunities
MarcEdit 7 represents the next generation in the MarcEdit application development.  Over the course of six months, MarcEdit has been redeveloped and reimagined to allow for greater automation, data manipulation, and integration opportunities.  MarcEdit 7 development focused on:

  • Simplifying workflows and help
  • A focus on software accessibility
  • Deeper integrations with OCLC and the existing next generation ILS ecosystem
  • Development of new global editing tools
  • Support for working direction with knowledge-graphs and semantic data
  • Development of new paradigms for crosswalking metadata

At its core, this workshop will focus on editing library data…specifically how attendees can quickly create, editing, and modify large batches of library data.  The workshop will put a premium on automation, looking at ways in which users can automate workflows and processes.  At the same time, given the recent release of MarcEdit 7, the workshop will highlight many of the new tools like the new metadata profiler to enable simplified non-MARC to MARC (or non-MARC) transformations and the new data clustering functionality designed to help make sense of messy data, as well as enhancements to the linked data toolkit.  Working with real-data, and answering real-world problems, the workshop will seek to provide attendees with the knowledge and necessary toolkit to enhance and improve their processes at their home institutions.

This workshops will be available to in-person attendees only and requires an additional ticket. It will not be available via the Online Conference.

S081-02: Communicating Accessibility to Third Party Vendors
Technologies have emerged so quickly since the onset of the internet that digital accessibility is often overlooked. As much of a library's online resources are provided via third parties, prioritizing accessibility can be very challenging. In what ways might librarians communicate their commitment to accessibility to vendors? This presentation is geared towards librarians ready to start promoting accessibility in their institutions and includes a basic introduction to concepts and standards in accessibility as well as a brief overview of landmark disability legislation.
