Meaningful Making: Bridging STEM & Teen Programming
Libraries are striving to provide teens with programming opportunities that allow them to learn & collaborate with peers. One facet of programming that libraries are implementing are STEM Maker activities. We have developed a set of easy to follow program guides freely available online to support librarians to implement these activities. In this workshop, attendees will participate in Maker activities and experience fun & cost-effective possibilities for STEM-oriented Making in the library.

Assessing the Value of E-Books Purchased through Demand-Driven Acquisitions
Libraries rely heavily on demand-driven acquisitions to purchase e-books that are of immediate value to their patrons. Library administrators, collection managers, and anyone involved in providing access to e-books should know how well their DDA program is meeting patron needs. This poster presents a brief analysis of four years of data on the USU Library’s DDA purchases, showing the insights that can be gathered on the quantity, cost, and use of DDA e-books across broad disciplinary categories.
