In Libraries We Trust: The Role of Libraries in the 2020 Census

With this poster, librarians will learn that the Census is mandated in the US Constitution; why a complete count is so important for libraries; timeline; hot topics; population trends; how the State Data Center can help libraries; and what libraries can do to help get a complete count in their communities.

Preserving and Disseminating Student-Created Video Games
A student-created video game, Erie, is widely-regarded as games studies program’s flagship game, has become marooned on an obsolete operating system. To avoid losing future student-created video games, librarians secured national grant funding to embed relevant library instruction, develop a preservation strategy, and public display for the student games. As stewards of rich authentic content, the library can preserve other complex forms of digital scholarship.

In Libraries We Trust: The Role of Libraries in the 2020 Census
Many projections and estimates used in planning are based on the census. Similarly, many funding allocations are based on population counts, like the LSTA funds used in Utah. It is critical to have a complete count of all Utahns. Libraries can offer trustworthy information about the census and provide vital services to residents, especially to hard-to-count populations. Join us as we learn about dependable sources of information and how to be more effective census ambassadors to our communities.

Peaks, Plateaus, and Pitfalls: Lessons Learned Offering Patron Technology Training in the Library
Four years ago the BYU Library took over the role of software training from the Office of Information Technology. We will share lessons learned over that time on how to plan, promote, and teach successful workshops on everything from Photoshop and Illustrator, to Excel and PowerPoint.

Our trainers are all student employees who often have no experience in these programs before they are hired. We will also talk about how we train them to both know and teach these computer programs.

Delivering the Library to Henefer
The Summit County Library received an LSTA Grant in 2018 to purchase a Remote Book Locker to place in the rural town of Henefer, Utah.

This presentation will give an overview of the project, including how the partnership with Henefer was formed, details about the Locker, and lessons learned.
