Cataloging with RDA: Learning the Changes of the Updated Resource Description and Access PART ONE
RDA (Resource Description and Access), the current cataloging standard, has vastly improved the ways libraries describe their materials in the digital age. RDA has particularly made description easier for electronic and multimedia materials, thus making them more discoverable for patrons. In the last year, RDA has published its most significant update to date in order to clarify rules, provide working examples, and thoroughly reshape the RDA Toolkit to make the entire process of using RDA easier. Robert Maxwell, THE expert in RDA and author of Maxwell’s Handbook for RDA, will provide this informative and invaluable training session.

This is a two-part hands-on training, so please bring your laptop.

The Value of Relationships in Advocacy
This pre-conference session strives to alter library professionals’ perception of advocacy and remove the mystique. Often seen as formal and intimidating, advocacy does not have the be daunting, rather, it can be natural and an expression of self by emphasizing the relationship aspect and by finding your niche. From patrons to local officials, relationships and “the mushy stuff” matter.

Crowdsourcing Metadata Practices at USU
USU Libraries’ Cataloging and Metadata Unit has successfully investigated several methods to engage the public to involve them in the creation of metadata for USU’s Digital History Collections. Most, if not all the techniques we have tested have yielded positive results and have improved the relevancy and accuracy of our descriptive metadata. We will give an overview of what we have done and give attendees ideas that they can possibly implement at their own institution.

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.

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.

More than We Know What to Do with: The Fulton Library and an Unusual Donation
In 2018, Fulton Library was offered an unusual donation: 63,000 books from the inventory of a closed bookstore.  As this is approximately 1/3rd of the size of the regular collection at Fulton Library, several unique considerations had to be made.  In this presentation, Anthony Morris, Kira Buswell, and Shay Chestnut will discuss our experience with accepting and processing this donation, describe the lessons we've learned, and talk about building mutually beneficial relationships with donors.
