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.

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

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.
