NOVEL: Building a Sustainable Online Publishing and Educational Platform
NOVEL is a discipline specific open repository. Eccles Library serves as publisher and provides opportunities for health professionals to publish non-traditional scholarly output which builds a neuro-ophthalmology curriculum. Needing continued support, spin off products were developed for licensing. An Illustrated Curriculum was published in Stat!Ref, a Teton Data Systems electronic platform. The revenue generated by the Stat!Ref product will help sustain the NOVEL open repository. The open NOVEL repository allows faculty around the world to share expertise and support training of neuro-ophthalmologists. The model established is transferrable and could be used by other disciplines. The Library-Society collaboration has been a rewarding way to enhance educational cooperation within the discipline of Neuro-ophthalmology. Libraries can be publishers of non-traditional content and manage peer-review. This role is a natural extension of the library profession and places the library in an essential position to further education and research in an academic discipline.

Describing Absence: An Analysis of the Utah American Indian Digital Archive
The presenters were faced with the task of creating best practices for ethically describing items and collections where information regarding marginalized groups, in this case Native Americans, was never recorded. The metadata of the Utah American Indian Digital Archive was analyzed via OpenRefine to highlight instances of this "archival silence" within the collection. This presentation aims to discuss the process as well as the larger problem of archival silence and how best to mitigate it.
