S007: Did we buy this? Untangling which materials are licensed with the help of modern technology
A trouble report for an e-book comes in, but there’s no title list in the contract.  Or maybe this e-journal is bundled with that one?  The OhioLINK consortium has developed a tool tracking contracts, licensed materials, and participating libraries over time.  This is our answer to: Did we buy this?

S016: Implementing SimplyE for Academic Libraries: working toward a single search for ebooks
Patrons seeking ebooks are saddled with multiple vendor interfaces. SimplyE makes the experience simpler by searching catalog across ebook aggregators and hiding DRM aggravation. Development of an academic version of this open source app is underway at Minitex. We'll demonstrate the current app and discuss the status of this project.

S085: The Artist Librarian: A Panel on Creativity in Librarianship
While we're librarians who work with electronic resources, many of us are also librarians who write, make music, paint, or create in myriad other ways. Both of us are poets and writing is a definitive part of our lives—it’s not a hobby. We suspect that there are other ER&L 2018 attendees who feel the same way about their creative lives and we’re certain those same people are doing great things for the libraries in which they work. For us, the boundary between our working life and our creative life is vaporous, if it exists at all.

So let’s share our creative achievements! Let’s talk about how the practice of making something in one realm lends itself to being a thoughtful, creative colleague. Let’s discuss how your facility with language and composition inspires innovations in your library instruction sessions. Let’s examine the tension that can exist between having to answer a thousand emails and getting to your gig on time. We want to hear from those of you who participate in art, music, writing, and creative communities, and we welcome those of you who might not be involved in creative communities but are nonetheless interested.

The Artist Librarian: A Panel on Creativity in Librarianship 
will begin with a panel conversation among five artist/librarian attendees. Then, we'll open the discussion up among panelists and audience members. Finally, we'll end with an open mic presentation from you. Read a poem, share your visual art, perform a song--we want to hear it, and we can't wait to hear from you!
