Title: Library Projects - How Your Focus on Mission and Scope Contributes to Success

Title: Launching a Document Delivery Service: Trials and Triumphs
Abstract: With journal pricing being a constant, universal issue that causes real problems for academic
library collections, my colleague Kirstin Duffin (Research Support Librarian) and I (Head of
Cataloging Services) began to look into alternatives to expensive electronic journal
subscriptions. Our investigations and subsequent conversations with fellow library faculty via
our Collection Development Committee led us to the decision to pilot Copyright Clearance
Center's Get It Now document delivery service. For our presentation, we will discuss the
process of running this as a pilot project, securing funding, selecting journal titles for the
service, and the challenges we have encountered. Implementation occurred within months of
migrating to Alma and Primo VE, adding another level of complexity. Particulars of what we
will cover include article access impediments, customizing access for our institutional users,
and strategies to publicize Get It Now availability to encourage its use. Overall, the launch of
Get It Now has been a successful cross departmental collaboration, and considering the
apparent scarcity of resources that addressed our challenges, we hope that attendees of our
presentation will be more informed as they pursue document delivery options.

Title: Using Workflows to Demonstrate Value and Opportunity
Abstract: Workflows can demonstrate how an organization uses and values different aspects of the work and their expertise. In Technical Services, one common decision-point is determining how to either create or acquire descriptive metadata for resources in their collection. Pulling from management and library science literature, this presentation examines those decisions and how we can approach them as value-based decisions that can help us to justify that specific decision and explain to others the value of in-house metadata expertise and work.
Presenter(s): Catherine Smith, Coordinator of Metadata, University of Alabama, & Darnelle O. Melvin, Special Collections and Archives Metadata Librarian, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Title: A Metadata Assessment Framework for Systematic Evaluations of Metadata Schemas
Abstract: The Core Metadata Standards Committee is presenting for public review the Metadata Standard Assessment Framework. This project grew out of a committee discussion to develop a framework that would help information professionals evaluate metadata schemas to determine its best fit for repositories, projects, or institutional needs. The committee decided that the framework would take the form of a rubric. In determining how to structure the rubric, the committee reviewed data models for metadata, most of which analyzed the appropriateness of the elements within a schema. This presentation will provide an introductory look at the proposed Framework and a review of the design and criteria.
Thank you and we look forward to the program!
