Liaison Librarians in the Know: Methods for Discovering Faculty Research and Teaching Needs
At the 2014 Charleston Conference, a panel of faculty members spoke on "What Faculty Want Librarians to Know." This session will continue the conversation begun by the 2014 panel, seeking to highlight ways for librarians to discover what the faculty at their home institutions wish that the library knew about their research and teaching needs. Using a case study of a liaison re-envisioning project at a large, research-intensive public university as the framework for this session, we will discuss methods for determining the curriculum and research needs of faculty across disciplinary boundaries and ways for promoting library resources and services to departments across campus. We will bring the perspectives of a business librarian and a literature/special collections librarian to the discussion to highlight how standardized, library-wide methods can address discipline-specific needs.

The objectives of this session include exploring models and methods for promoting library resources and services to our faculty partners on campus, identifying alternate routes to support faculty needs in the face of lean collections budgets, finding techniques for working around institutionally-specific challenges for gathering data, and communicating these needs to vendors.

After attending this session, participants will be able to articulate methods and processes for gauging faculty needs of the library for research and instruction across different disciplines. The session will conclude with an interactive discussion of how participants could adapt the techniques described for use at their home institutions.

Marketing Your Collections: Which Strategies Actually Work?
Having licensed or purchased those expensive electronic resources, you want to make sure that your students & faculty know about them -- but what's the best way to do so? Three similar-sized universities (Santa Clara University, the University of San Francisco, Loyola Marymount University) took on a comparative study with Springer Nature to explore the impact of proactive (having an event staffed by an expert from the vendor) versus indirect (email campaigns & digital signage) campaigns for a suite of Springer Nature products, with the third university changing nothing to act as a control group. We will discuss idea development, methodology, and findings to date - how use of the targeted Springer Nature products has been impacted by different kinds of marketing campaigns - as well as implications for marketing other kinds of electronic resources based on this prototype.

Moving the Library: Bringing Resources to Students

In keeping with the theme of roll with the times, I propose a panel session describing the need to move the library by bringing library resources, and access to a librarian, into course management systems. I propose a panel session format. A community college librarian will speak on her experience as an embedded librarian, the creator of a one credit online course on information literacy, and marketing library resources in the CMS. A representative from Gale will speak on how to promote and market the library’s online resources in the CMS. A university librarian will speak on creating an online community in Blackboard and mention an online site that integrates library instruction materials into Canvas courses. Topics discussed will include LibGuides, links to streaming video collections, embedded librarian programs, creating online courses on information literacy, and developing a suite of online information literacy modules. The audience will be asked to share examples of ways they move the library’s resources to students. Participants will be asked to share responses to various questions via texting to an online poll.

Straight to the Source: A Student Panel on Ebook Usage
In 2008, we started tracking ebook usage trends via a global student survey designed to help us better understand how students use their library's resources. We ran the survey again in 2011 and most recently in 2016, receiving over 15,150 total responses. Now, armed with the survey findings and a panel of students ready to talk about their experience with ebooks, we're ready to discuss the trends we found in our data and what they mean for your library,

During this panel discussion, we'll not only share our survey results but talk straight with the source - the undergraduate and graduate students who come to you for research guidance - about their own experiences with ebooks and how that compares with our findings. Your questions will be answered, your assumptions will be confirmed - or disproved - and you'll leave with actionable insight that will guide your ebook acquisition strategy and the services you offer your users.
