Internal Knowledge Management in Libraries: Designing Successful Intranet for Seamless Communication
Knowledge management within any organization is important, and more so in academic libraries, which are adept at organizing information resources that students, faculty and community use to further their academic and lifelong learning goals. In this presentation, we will discuss our approach in developing an intranet that has become the information hub for employees. We will touch on tactical, technical, and human success factors that are important to consider while developing such systems.

Collection Weeding: Breaking New Ground with Innovative Processes and Tools
Collection evaluation, or weeding, is about as popular as, well, real weeding. Unfortunately there isn’t a Library Roundup®-type technology that will make the job easy. BYU science librarians completed a major print collection evaluation project and will discuss essential library-wide collaborations, deselection criteria, innovative project management tools, a novel patron feedback process, and finally, lessons learned.
