Conversations that Matter
As an NPR host and journalist, Celeste Headlee has interviewed hundreds of people from all walks of life. Through her work, she has learned the true power of conversation and its ability to both bridge gaps or deepen wounds. In a time when conversations are often minimized to a few words in a text message and lack of meaningful communication and conversation abounds, Celeste sheds a much-needed light on the lost and essential art of conversation. Celeste’s TEDx Talk, “10 ways to have a better conversation,” was listed as one of the most watched TED Talks in 2016 by CNBC and named the #1 must-watch TED Talk by Glassdoor with 12.5 million total views to date.

ILL Borrowing Workflow Prioritization
This presentation will discuss how Millersville University prioritizes ILL workflow through various systems to fill requests efficiently, quickly, and with little staff. The use of ILLiad add-ons and custom queues to move borrowing requests through disparate systems in a prioritized fashion, with little staff intervention, allows us to process a high volume of requests with only two staff members and a handful of student employees. The discussion will center on book/returnable borrowing, reasons for the priority of each system/process, and our general philosophy of resource sharing. Discovery systems and article borrowing will briefly be highlighted.

Reformatting Library Services: Providing Service to Patrons with Disabilities
The role of libraries has changed a great deal over the past years, with Access Services implementing more developed and seamless services to more patrons every day. Alternate formats is one area that brings many challenges to provide the best quality of service to users. In response, Syracuse University Libraries have made committed efforts to identify and meet the needs of patrons with disabilities. In partnership with others on campus, the Libraries have embarked on a journey to further expand our services to patrons. This session will present:


1) Syracuse University Libraries’ efforts to provide accessible reformatted texts for patrons in need of this service
2) Integration of ILLiad and interlibrary loan procedures
3) Challenges of reformatting text
4) Accessibility for course reserve items

Right Under Their Noses: Helping patrons identify the resources at their fingertips.
A concern of all academic Interlibrary Loan Departments is having faculty/ staff & students request materials already owned by their home library. The Interlibrary Loan Department conducted a qualitative research study with IRB approval to explore this concern. In this session, the presenters will describe how data suggest a more streamlined approach to redirecting searches originating in the library for outside sources to assets already physically (or electronically) stored in the library. We will discuss our research process and how we partnered with other departments in the library. Our findings were useful to our Discovery Services managers and our instruction faculty.

Adventures in data visualization: Using Tableau to show the value of resource sharing
I propose to present my experience with an ongoing data visualization project, in which I use Tableau to create visualizations based on resource sharing data. Data visualization can be an impactful way to show the value of resource sharing work to administrators and the public. _x000D_
In this session, I intend give a very brief overview of useful concepts and the software used (Tableau), discuss project planning and issues I encountered, and show my final visualizations. My visualizations will include traditional metrics, such as statistics on fill rates and turnaround times, but also other ways we can show the value of our work (for example, by visually showing how resource sharing work connects and helps other areas of the library, or mapping where borrowed material originates). _x000D_
By sharing my own experience in which I started from scratch, I hope to encourage others who are curious about using data visualization to show the value of their work.

Blurred Lines: Developing a Blended Resource Sharing Workflow as a True Alternative to Subscriptions
Libraries are increasingly using resource sharing to deliver journal access. There are few choices to provide access to research materials in a cost-effective way that is simple for users and staff. Libraries are caught between subscriptions or less than ideal article purchasing choices. Resource sharing can offer access options that are convenient yet cost-effective and includes automated purchasing of articles blended with resource sharing. Additionally, the article workflow must be dynamic and configurable so access options and allowable costs depend on the requester, the title, and the time and day. SUNY Poly and other libraries have optimized the article workflow so the best method is applied to requests. A re-envisioned article workflow currently in production that automates copyright clearance completes and fixes of citations, purchases articles, compares prices, and applies local article purchasing and borrowing policies without mediation or delays will be discussed.

A Tale of Three Projects: Sharing Special Collections Materials via Resource Sharing
As Resource Sharing operations have grown, modernized, and broadened, libraries are increasingly comfortable loaning legacy formats such as a/v, microformat, curriculum, or other materials. However, sharing of Special Collections materials via Resource Sharing remains a challenge for many libraries due to concerns about fragility, rarity, workflow, approval processes, and other issues. Libraries involved in SHARES, the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA), and the Ivy Plus Libraries have found some solutions to these tricky issues, created some freely-available tools, and implemented programs to facilitate the sharing of these rare, and often deeply needed items. Come hear how we’ve made it work!

Comparing Apples to Oranges: An Investigation into the Validity of Interlibrary Loan Statistics
In an effort to understand the validity of self-reported Interlibrary Loan (ILL) statistics, University of South Carolina librarians developed a survey to determine how libraries classify, categorize, and report ILL data. In May 2016, we emailed all 116 Interlibrary Loan departments within the Association of Research Libraries with a request to complete our survey. We will discuss our results and the implications that these results have on the validity of reported ILL statistics. We will explore possibilities for expanding this research and argue for more standardized collection and reporting practices.

Using Tipasa's Patron Request Form to Gather Statistics in a Library that Serves Multiple Institutions
The AUC Robert W. Woodruff library serves 4 institutions (Spelman College, Morehouse College, Clark Atlanta University and the Interdenominational Theological Center) and the library has to provide statistics on usage specific to each institution's student, faculty and staff population.
This session will show how to use the patron status and department fields to gather patron status relevant to our institution. The session will also show how these patron statistics can be accessed through WorldShare Analytics in the event that statistics are needed before OCLC Usage Statistics become available.

Resume Building - Supporting Your Staff and Student Assistants
Students apply to work at the library because it is a job on campus and it is convenient to work, take classes and study on campus. What students and (newly hired) staff do not realize when they are hired in the ILL/DDS department at the University of Central Florida is that they are enrolled in a different type of class: the class of building their resumes on a variety of work skills. Most student assistants start as freshman and stay the entire time they are at the University. Most are able to find employment soon after due to the work skills they have developed. Find out how students start with no library backgrounds and leave ready to tackle the “real world.”

Historian's use of ILL for returnables: reality vs. perception of turn-around time
The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) is committed to continuously improving services and recently implemented the ILLiad request management system, joined RapidILL and RapidR, and reviewed and revised workflows. The Humanities Librarian ramped up instruction efforts to further drive ILL use. Patrons responded by increasing their ILL requests, particularly for non-returnables.
Despite vastly improved ILL turnaround times and instructional efforts, some patrons, especially in the History Department, remain reluctant to make ILL requests of returnables.
To find out why, TCNJ Library’s Humanities and Access Services Librarians undertook a study of history faculty and their capstone students’ use of ILL for returnables. This presentation describes the results of the survey and a plan for instruction and outreach. Survey results are cross-referenced with actual ILL use statistics with an aim to aggregate reality vs. perception in the use of ILL services among local historians and their students.

Document Delivery Services Usage at Medium-Sized University with Graduate Student Programs
Bradley University is a medium sized university, and to meet the research needs of its patrons the library uses three types of document delivery services: ILLiad, Get It Now and purchasing directly from the publishers. Get It Now was implemented in 2012 to supplement the collection because of large serials cancellations. During this time period, the university established several new graduate programs, and the library has become dependent upon document delivery services in particular for fields that were not traditionally covered by the library’s collections to meet the needs of these students. Previous studies at Bradley University have shown that the graduate students request the most articles per capita, and the rise in graduate student population has correlated with a rise in requests for articles through document delivery services. The question is, if this increase is happening at other universities the same size and student body type as Bradley University, and is the increase co

The German Copyright - A Mystery for Foreign Librarians?
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) correlates closely with copyright. But only a few countries worldwide have got a copyright law and less of them including a special part for ILL. Germany is one of them, but this positive effect doesn’t make it easier for foreign libraries. Librarians and lawyers agree that the German copyright law is one of the most complicated laws. The new copyright (UrhWissG) in Germany will become operative in March 2018 and promise to be the right answer for the specification of modern digital work and study. But what will be the differences to the current copyright? What are the most important facts for ILL? How will you get the articles and books you need from German libraries? And why is everything so complicated? The workshop will start with a short introduction to the German copyright and our way of license fees. Afterwards, I would like to discuss various ways to improve ILL between foreign libraries to make it even faster, more digital and more service-orientated.

The Information Delivery Services (IDS) Project is a “mutually supportive resource-sharing cooperative" with a “strong sense of community” and “a unified collection perspective” that enables us “to continually implement and objectively evaluate innovative resource-sharing strategies, policies and procedures that will optimize mutual access to the information resources of all IDS Project libraries.” We are also eager to share with ILL specialists at other libraries - because the more we all share, in terms of knowledge and library resources, the more we can all do for each other and for our library users. Specifically, we will present activities that focus on "the people, not the platform." This includes our mentor and mentor training program, our Regional User Groups and our Online Learning Institute. Libraries are encouraged to consider working with us or with other libraries to implement similar programs locally.

Document Delivery on Wheels: the pedaling power of efficiency
When our library's golf cart started becoming less reliable and less available, the USF Tampa Library ILL department determined it was time for a change. Last year we proposed the purchase of a bicycle for library services. My presentation will discuss our Interlibrary Loans department, our Pronto Document Delivery program and our quest to make a change.
I will touch upon the details of our Pronto service and how it was developed in and outside of ILLiad to directly deliver materials. I will also discuss the process of initiating this new phase of Pronto, including bicycle vs. golf cart, bicycle/tricycle research findings, pros and cons of each style of cycle, policy and liability issues, funding, results of preliminary use, and feedback.
On an average day, our department processes hundreds of requests. Having fast, safe and reliable transportation is the key to our Pronto service’s success.

Document Delivery and Interlibrary Loan in Discovery: Making it Easier for Our Users
Simplifying resource delivery request options in library discovery platforms can be a challenging endeavor. Can we remove the jargon and just say what the ILL and document delivery services do? Can we focus on what is being delivered and the format options? Are our systems capable of presenting one button requesting with integrated “smart fulfillment” technologies that route requests to appropriate services behind-the-scenes? If we make these services more prominent and easy to use, how much will this increase the staffing and financial needs within the library? 
At the University of Minnesota Libraries, we’ve been exploring and investigating these questions of how to integrate document delivery into discovery alongside the existing delivery services. Using an iterative process with usability testing throughout, our aim is to make requesting resources seamless for the user, while also identifying and addressing the potential costs and associated risks.

Poster Session: IDS Article Gateway to the Rescue
Managing a busy interlibrary loan operation with limited staff resources requires taking advantage of as many opportunities for system unmediation as possible. IDS Project offers us these opportunities by allowing for efficiencies with copyright, renewals, and lending with our branch libraries. Facilitating copyright, the system does the work for us: it finds the least expensive cost, identifies the cost for us, and routes it into the appropriate queue; renewals are almost completely unmediated; and by using Z39.50, IDS does automated routing of requests to branch queues, cancelling requests for non-circulating locations and checked out items. This combination of IDS logic and ILLiad has created significant staff and cost savings. See what UConn has done to implement this workflow and what it's done for us.

Poster Session: Copyright Charges: A Library's Approach to Reducing its Copyright Fees
Medical Sciences Library (MSL) at Texas A&M University offers ILL services to its affiliates free of charge. Like many other libraries, ILL staff first try to borrow from free libraries to keep the borrowing fees as low as possible. However, copyright fees are often higher than the charges of borrowing an article. To offset the copyright charges and maintain the free service, a new plan was devised by the librarian overseeing ILL. After consulting with the director, an acceptable range of copyright fees was chosen for each patron group (undergraduate, graduate, staff, faculty). This breakdown was forwarded to staff and they were asked to follow a series of steps when copyright needs to be paid for a request. This poster will explain the steps in detail and provide the outcome.

Poster Session: ILL Cost Recovery at UMB
UMB Health Sciences Library used to absorb copyright fees incurred by following the CONTU Rule of Five. Over the years the rising demand for current articles for interdisciplinary education and research, compounded with a flat budget for journal subscriptions, has increased copyright payments exponentially. Statistical analysis indicated future trends with the same trajectory. To sustain ILL service, the Library has implemented a charge-back model where schools pay for articles requiring copyright fees. In developing the model, numerous challenges were met and resolved. This poster will describe the development of the project and lessons learned.

Poster Session: CSU+: Connecting 23 California State University Libraries
The California State University (CSU) System recently migrated to a new, shared library services platform to support collaborative management and delivery of library resources. The Unified Library Management System (ULMS) connects all 23 libraries from each of the 23 campuses. This effort was led by the CSU Office of the Chancellor, in conjunction with key stakeholders throughout the system. This poster will focus on CSU+, the resource sharing service created to maximize access to resources from all 23 libraries. It will also focus on newly formed collaborations, building stronger working teams within the CSU; as well as, addressing some of the challenges -- including changes to workflow, getting the buy-in from all parties involved, exploring governance, system-wide training, a more transparent communication model and more. The poster will also cover the CSU ILL group, Interlibrary Services Partner Information Exchange (I-SPIE) and its overarching role on CSU+.

Stop Chasing Chickens and Let the Fences Do the Work: Data Supported Service Policies in Action
Library systems are complicated. User behavior is complex. Typically libraries frame policy conversations with assumptions or anecdotes memories of problematic transactions. Do policies achieve the desired outcome? Can we demonstrate these policies efficacy and, if not, how do we engaged in policy re-think based on different assumptions. Learn how three large academic libraries applied sets of data measuring clearly defined activity consistently collected over a long period of time to rethink and revise their policies. See how they improved the efficacy of their policies and reduce busywork for: consortial lending invoices, loan periods, blocks, and recalls as well as reducing the number of not picked up items by the customers.
