A Low Tech Alternative to Help You Select Your High Tech Resources
Rich Paustenbaugh, Dixie State University Library

STEM-related jobs make up an important and growing portion of the Utah economy. According to a 2013 report from the Brookings Institution, computer-related STEM jobs make up the largest share of the Utah STEM economy; however, there are currently more vacant jobs in this category than there are qualified applicants available to fill them. Libraries have traditionally partnered with other organizations to provide opportunities for job seekers to enrich their existing job skills. This poster details an easy way to provide focus to library efforts to support patrons who want to develop their computer-related skills and help libraries to become a more effective partner in the efforts to grow Utah’s economy.

Book & Boogie: Pairing Books with Music and Movement Activities
Anna Zanarini, Salt Lake County- Whitmore Library

This poster will present basic facts about how children learn and how movement is key to the process as well as listing pairings of books or programs themes with suggested music or movement activities.

Cataloging Posteritati: Improving Access for Motion Picture Publicity Materials
Pat Frade, Rebecca Wiederhold, Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University

The past few months we were assigned to catalog a collection of movie posters and we researched the process only to find very little information in the literature on how to catalog this format. We now have the process down, and we would like to share the information with others. This poster will describe the process of cataloging a movie poster, with their various sizes and their unique mix of visual and textual elements. We will include discussion of RDA tags, notes, and genre terms. We will have example records, and sources for further information.

Maker Corp @ Your Library: Engendering the Future of Tomorrow
Talysa Brimley, Skyler Higley, North Logan City

Maker Education: a nationwide cooperation that specifically chose the North Logan City Library to be one of the few pedagogic sites in the region, and one of four libraries, as a host for the program. We are focusing through STEM based activities that will allow students to fully reach their greatest potential. Maker Corp provides an expansion of knowledge by getting kids to create and explore abound exceptional opportunities. Through the base of Maker Corp, and the incredible minds of children, we will showcase the following: 1) The basic structure of what Maker Corp offers and provides for kids 2) Having kids learn and understand a vast differential perspective on the learning curriculum. 3) Different types of learning activities that have been done through our specific course and the responses that have been received.

Metadata Managed: How to Clean Data That is Up to No Good
Jeremy Myntti, Anna Neatrour, J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah

What do you do if your metadata solemnly swears that it is up to no good? You perform some data wrangling magic and declare “Metadata Managed.” In order to ensure that we are providing users with the most accurate information in support of digital library discovery, the University of Utah’s Marriott Library has started work on a large-scale metadata audit project for the many collections housed in our CONTENTdm repository. This project has included looking for consistency within specific fields, the correct use of metadata standards, and the proper use of national authority files. This poster will demonstrate some of the methods we are using for reviewing data, tools that are helpful when reviewing large datasets, and a workflow developed for faculty, staff, and student workers to contribute to this project.

Organizing a Grant Writing Workshop for Graduate Students
Emily S. Darowski, Kristen Kellems, Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University

Subject librarians act as liaisons between the library and the departments they serve, providing resources that meet research and educational needs. Needs are met by looking for gaps in knowledge or skills and developing new services. I learned after an instruction session with psychology graduate students that they lacked information and training about grant writing. Using this feedback, I collaborated with a research development specialist to organize a 3-part lunch series on grant writing. We offered the series to graduate students and faculty advisors in social science departments. I will describe how we organized the series, outline the topics we covered, discuss general feedback, and review what we learned from the experience. Creating new services or offerings like this illustrates one strategy that helps librarians maintain relevancy and currency in the patrons’ perspective. My experience also highlights how collaborations build relationships with other entities and increase exposure for the library.

Passport 2.0
Steve Decker, Cedar City Public Library

For 25 months the Cedar City Library has engaged in the Passport Series—a general audience programming series that highlighted a different presenter and subject monthly. Attendance remained low (eight to 20 people per session). By moving to a digital format (YouTube Channel) and linking to our website, we anticipate wider public participation.

Refreshing Your Brand & Event Marketing
Alberta Comer, Heidi Brett, J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah

This marketing poster will share the Marriott Library's process of refreshing our brand by incorporating a tagline as well as launching a marketing event and employing a student to create short videos to market library services, spaces, etc.

The Inverted Pyramid: Closing the Loop Between Your Website, Library Services, and Users
Alex Sundt, Robert Heaton, Merrill-Cazier Library, Utah State University

The inverted pyramid is a classic technique used by journalists to prioritize the order of information presented in news articles. This concept has also been widely employed by web designers to help structure information in the visual layout of webpages. For library websites, designers must also consider unique features like tutorials, help buttons, and contact information, determining how to structure web content when it connects with key public services. Drawing from service and information design, we will illustrate how the inverted pyramid provides a robust framework for the design of library user experiences, closing the loop between websites, points of service, and different types of patron audiences.

Utah OER
Trevor Young, Mary Naylor, Utah Valley University Library
Jen Hughes, Salt Lake Community College Library
Allyson Mower, J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah
Donald Williams, LDS Business College Library

As librarians at Utah’s institutions of higher learning we ensure access to high quality information to the students, staff, and faculty on our campuses. We deliver content that meets teaching, learning, and research needs. Cost of content related to these aspects of higher learning have grown over the last three decades. Open Education Resources (OER) is a growing collection of myriad free, high quality electronic teaching resources. Our team (Utah OER) assembled with the goal of overcoming the barriers instructors have to adopting these resources. We created a website which brings together some of the most important collections of OER resources. It also includes materials that exist to educate instructors on the use of OER resources and provides space for testimonials from Utah instructors with OER experience.
