Are Print Books REALLY Dead?: Exploring the Relationship between the Technology Acceptance Model and the Use of E-books at a Large Research University
Recent research suggests that digital natives still prefer to read print or hard copy books. However, a study that applied the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) to faculty acceptance of e-books found one group, those who feel they are easier to use, do use them. Researchers plan to survey current students who are library users about their usage of e-books in relation to TAM. The research seeks to examine the following questions: How does perceived usefulness affect e-book usage by library users? How does perceived ease of use affect e-book usage by library users? Is there a difference in the effect of perceived usefulness between online and in person library users? Is there a difference in the effect of perceived ease of use between online and in person library users? Building on models from psychology recent studies explored the possible relationships between TAM and usability testing found a correlation between perceived ease of use and usability attributes. An extensive e-book collection provides support to advance educational excellence. However, this cannot happen if these resources are not used. We hope to be able to share information about e-books, usability, and user acceptance to help librarians make more informed choices when selecting e-book vendors or ordering titles.

Deciphering eBook Vendors, Models, and Access Rules: Using Catalog Records to Aid Subject Selectors
Managing eBooks in the library catalog, as part of a package or on an individual title basis, involves a variety of purchase or subscription models, vendor platforms, and access rules. From the subject selector perspective, it can be challenging to identify when an eBook title is owned, leased, or simply loaded in the catalog awaiting a potential evidence based selection or demand driven acquisition when making collection development decisions. At Randall Library we have added information to certain fields in eBook catalog records in order to aid liaison librarians in selection decisions, but without confusing patrons. This process, which we also apply to streaming video records, helps to distinguish the different access and ownership status, whether it is an evidence based selection, demand driven acquisition, owned, a subscription from our institution, or a subscription from the statewide consortium NC LIVE.

Head in the Clouds: Will a Next Generation Library Management System Bring Clear Vision?
Libraries are constantly looking for efficient ways to manage print and electronic resources through entire lifecycles and uphold their commitment to be responsible stewards of university assets. The cloud is one way for libraries to achieve these goals. Cloud computing allows storing and accessing of data and programs over the Internet instead of on a computer's hard drive. In 2011, Virginia Commonwealth University Libraries decided to look at cloud-based library management systems to replace the legacy system they had for ten years. They were looking for ways to improve workflows, unify job functions and improve staff success. After researching a number of systems and finding an attractive prospect, the VCU Libraries was invited to become an "Early Adopter" and implemented Ex Libris' Alma.  As an adopter of the cloud for four years, they are examining their decision. 

This poster will describe the Libraries' journey from "Go Live" in 2012 up until the four year anniversary on October 24, 2016 and share successes, challenges and downright failures. The audience will learn if the cloud really brought simplified workflows, a connected environment and staff success.

Housing Diversity in Children's Literature
Several studies have examined diversity in children's literature, such as gender diversity and racial diversity. This concurrent session focuses on an often-overlooked issue in children's literature...housing diversity.  Renting and apartment-living are increasingly popular housing options. Many families with children live in something other than an owned single-family detached house. In the stories they read and the accompanying images, children need to see individuals portrayed positively in a variety of housing environments. 

Due to the limited research in this field, a pilot study was conducted to evaluate the "housing message" in children's literature.  This poster will address the limited research in this field. Then, using both positive and negative examples, the poster will display a variety of children's books to evaluate the words and images that are used in these stories to describe the housing structures, the neighborhood, the residents, and the staff.

Metadata Maker for Digital Publication
As many academic and research libraries are considering or have already started developing digital scholarly publishing programs, these programs need to find a proper way to create metadata for access to these new publications. However, metadata for digital publications has its own challenges in two areas: metadata schemas and controlled vocabularies. For example, metadata for digital publications requires a specific set of metadata elements that are different from traditional print resources. Also, in order for scholarly digital publications to be managed and discovered with other books that are published by established publishing houses, the application of subject headings should be described using controlled vocabularies that are standard in the publishing community, such as BISAC (https://www.bisg.org/bisac/bisac-subject-codes), and represented in the ONIX format in addition to MARC and MODS, metadata schemas used in the library domain. Furthermore, as libraries are moving forward towards the semantic web and linked data, metadata should also include linked data components that would increase the discoverability of resources on the web.

This poster introduces a metadata creation tool for electronic resources including digital publications, Metadata Maker for E-books (http://quest.library.illinois.edu/marcmaker/ebooks/) created to support these needs. The tool utilizes two subject headings: FAST for traditional library description, and BISAC subject codes and terms for publishers. Metadata Maker provides users, who may have minimal metadata knowledge and experience, a tool to create metadata in five different formats: MARC, MARCXML, MODS, schema.org embedded HTML, and ONIX for Books, depending on their needs.

The Dreaded Cold Call
Every subject librarian has had a lukewarm relationship with a department or two at different points in their career. Many academic librarians and libraries accept this as the status-quo or the cost of doing business.  However there is another option, the dreaded Cold Call. Cold calling is a business technique where a salesperson contacts individuals who have not expressed an interest in their services or products. While this is a sales focused business technique the same concepts are transferable to academic libraries. 

The poster will cover literature, theory, and best practices in connecting with faculty in departments that are historically under represented through library services. The presenters own experience with cold calling, salesmanship, and how this relates to subject librarianship will be analyzed and discussed through case study, data analysis, and measurable outcomes.

To Buy or Not to Buy: Rolling into the Future with ILLiad
This poster will showcase our new method for receiving purchase requests from faculty, staff, and students. ILLiad software is typically used for Interlibrary Loan activities only, but a special addon [produced by the IDS Project at SUNY] can be added and used for acquisitions and collection development activities/analysis. The poster will include the process of implementation and results of this new service. Discussion of OCLC's Collection Evaluation will also be included as a part of our collection analysis process. 

The objective of the session is to show how other libraries can leave the past behind and roll into the future by ditching paper request forms and embracing technology to help build collections. Attendees will learn about the technical process and why it might work well for their own purposes.

Using Technology to Facilitate Pre-Acquisition Workflows for Electronic Resources
Investigation of new e-resource requests before a purchase decision is made can be very complex, potentially involving gathering information from various parties (publishers/vendors, library stakeholders), setting up a trial, gathering trial feedback, and making sure stakeholders are notified in a timely manner throughout of the investigation process.    The University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) Libraries approached this management challenge by creating a dynamic online form.  With its front end originated in InfoPath and its backend database & workflow controlled in SharePoint, this form allows an automated process covering request submission, product evaluation, collection development review, trial setup, and selection decision.  All the information regarding a specific request is gathered into this form, with automated email notifications to stakeholders at each major step of the process.  The front end of the form is designed to be very simple and user-friendly, requiring only three pieces of information from liaison librarians: purchase request title, reason for request, and college with interest. 

Since the form was launched in July 2015, 73 requests have been submitted.  This new form has saved a lot of staff time in managing and communicating about e-journal/e-resource requests, which translates to improved services to liaison librarians and library users.
The posterr will address the challenge of managing pre-acquisition activities, discuss UNR's homegrown solution, and encourage attendees to share their experiences.

Where Is the Library Budget Going?: Using the Fund Code Structure in Your ILS to Demonstrate Fiscal Accountabilty and Track Format Migration
Our collections continue to migrate to an online environment, but often administrators outside the library (or even in it) are tied to fiscal concepts that do not reflect new formats and modes of access.  Administrators look at electronic resource expenditures and don't always understand that they are not just for databases, but also for ejournals and ebooks that can be subscribed to or owned.  Fund code structures that are built into our ILS systems can be used to demonstrate how resource budgets are expended by format and subject, which can then be tied into more formal assessment and analysis of each type of resource. The fund code properties of III's Sierra will be used to demonstrate how to build a structure to track expenditures by subject and format and that can be modified with the addition of new codes as modes of access and ownership evolve.
