S005: KBART Automation: Staying up-to-date to keep YOU (and your subscriptions) up-to-date!
The NISO KBART (KnowledgeBases And Related Tools) Automation working group is creating a recommended practice to build a seamless connection between libraries' local knowledge bases and information providers’ access/entitlement systems. Could a standard application of an API really bring to librarians and users the holy grail: accurate and timely library holdings across different systems?

5th Annual Battledecks @ ER&L

Participants will present a topic (provided just before they begin), for 3 to 3 and a half minutes, accompanied by 10-15 PowerPoint slides selected and arranged by our team of experienced mad library scientists. No preparation required -- No preparation allowed, actually.  Participants will be judged (by even madder library scientists), based on criteria ranging from the quantitative use of time and slides to the qualitative general composure and ability to address the topic. A certain amount of artistic license is expected from both participants and judges in their work.

We’re looking for a few hearty folks to join in as:

  • Participants – Sign up early to secure your spot.
  • Volunteers – We’ll need a few folks on hand to help run the show. 
  • Spectators!
Intrerested in Participating or Volunteering?  Sign up at the ER&L Registration Desk, or contact Jesse at jtk1@cornell.edu.
