S027: Combining CORAL: Building Knowledgebase Integrations for an Open Source ERM
Many e-resources librarians deal with a chicken-and-egg problem: Libraries need to be able to track important universal information about e-resources while cultivating site-specific metadata that is not common to all libraries. However, CORAL, an open source ERM, provides opportunities for integration with global knowledgebases that can seamlessly leverage universal data.

S047: Create Your Own Terms of Use: Deploying Project Management Principles for Designing Licensing Workflow & Record Preservation
Change management resides at the heart of electronic resources librarianship and is crucial when overseeing the licensing review and preservation process. Project management principles can help ERLs frame evolving workloads and faciliate long-term records preservation. This session provides a case study for simplifying license management in an academic research library.

S056: To Be(nto) or not to Be(nto)? That is the question...
The “bento box” results display has been adopted by many trend-setting libraries. But is it more effective and more liked by users? This presentation will discuss the results of a study designed to answer those questions and include insights from one of the pioneers of the bento box display.

S069: How to put the library in the patrons' workflow, and be loved for it
I'll present how using innovative product development processes taken out of the startup world helped create an end user focused new product that offers library services in the workflow of off campus users, thus generating a new touchpoint with patrons - one that they highly appreciate.

S078: Moving to ERM, or What Do We Have; Is That Perpetual; and Where’s the Title List?
We have folders, emails, memories, and LibGuides, but the University of Central Florida never had an electronic resource management system. In July, our consortia migrates to Sierra and its ERM. How to gather and track our data in a useful, sustainable way? Hear our plan and share your experiences.

S087: Analyzing Linked Data from an SEO Perspective
One of the chief promises of linked data for libraries is search engine visibility. Few studies, however, have attempted a quantitative analysis of linked data's impact on search engine rankings. In this session, we will review a linked data project from a search engine optimization perspective.

S095: The Access vs. Cost Conundrum: Balancing the Provision of Electronic Resources at the World Bank in a Time of Change
To achieve its twin goals of ending extreme poverty and promoting shared prosperity, the World Bank President announced a set of reorganization plans at its Annual Meeting in October 2013. To address expenditure review and strategic staffing, World Bank Library had to navigate the access/cost conundrum for effective e-resources management.

W09: Visualizing Library Data with Tableau Public
A successful data visualization can tell a powerful story with numbers. In recent years many libraries have started to use the data visualization software Tableau to help analyze the library data we collect and to communicate library impact and values to the community: How many visitors we have per year? How much money we spend for an electronic journal and what is the usage? What is the circulation per capita for this branch library?

The workshop will begin with an introduction to the various types of data that all libraries work with: bibliographic records, statistics, survey data, etc.. The participants will learn about the characteristics of library data and methods that are most suitable for visualizing the library data. The participants will learn how to use Tableau Public, a free version of the Tableau software, to create interactive data visualization including basic chart types, thematic maps and data dashboards. Good data visualization comes from “clean” data. As such this workshop will have brief introductions to tools and procedures that can be apply to clean library data for visualization. The workshop will also introduce the participants to design principles for data visualization and different types of data visualization tools (free or commercial).

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