W02: Advanced Licensing & Copyright – Juggling Negotiation, Management, and Compliance
License agreements and copyright law have a great impact on how we acquire, manage and use digital content. This workshop is designed to help attendees advance their knowledge of the legal framework that supports the acquisition and management of this content using typical electronic resource management (ERM) scenarios. Presenters will provide an overview of copyright and contract law, and discuss how common library and academic uses are allowed under each. Specific topics to be covered include negotiation tips and issue spotting in contracts; how to interpret and translate contract terms to common library service points; how to respond to contract breaches; and technical implementation related to contract compliance. Using a “flipped classroom” model, attendees will be assigned some basic theoretical reading on copyright law and licensing prior to the workshop, in preparation for group exercises and hands-on activities.  Attendees will have an opportunity to express the most significant challenges that they face at their own institutions for group analysis and discussion.

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

The Importance of Discovery: How Prioritizing Exploration Promotes the Value of the Library


Your library offers students a wealth of ebooks and print books, but are students able to easily find and use these resources?

Often, librarians focus much of their effort on curating the highest quality content, but end up approaching discoverability of this content as an afterthought. The good news: You can balance these two important components of collection development with the right enrichment tools — like those offered through Syndetics Unbound.

During this session, we’ll explore challenges libraries like yours face when it comes to promoting discoverability, offering valuable examples of approaches that work and approaches that could use a little work. Finally, we’ll share insight into ProQuest’s latest innovation that will provide contextual discovery within the platform, saving your researchers time and effort.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the impact of a lack of discoverability on the library and its researchers.
  • Identify how the integration of Syndetics Unbound into Ebook Central will increase exploration and drive discoverability.
  • Recognize changes that could be made to enhance the discoverability of their library’s resources.

Analyzing the impact and reach of your open access publications with Web of Science

Through a partnership with Impactstory, Clarivate Analytics has combined the research discovery strength of the Web of Science with the world of Open Access.  Impactstory’s Unpaywall technology is integrated into Web of Science, making it the most authoritative Open Access search engine available. Web of Science users can identify which of their search results are available for free on publishers’ websites (Gold/Gold Hybrid) or trusted repositories (Green Accepted and Green Published). Not only does this make access to free, legal article PDFs simple for researchers and students, but it also enables librarians to do in-depth analysis of Open Access availability across the 32,000 journals on the Web of Science platform.  Currently, this means over 10 million Open Access articles can be found through Web of Science. We will use InCites Benchmarking and Analytics to analyze the citation impact of Open Access content from a university.  We will examine this from the journal, subject area, and funder perspectives, and discuss how libraries can use these data to support Open Access policies and collection development.

W07: Teach Your Staff to Troubleshoot E-Resources: Practical Processes to Documenting and Implement A Troubleshooting Training Curriculum
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 training 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.

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