Wanna Play a Game? Using Technology to Engage Students in the Information Literacy Classroom
Every librarian knows that teaching information literacy can be tough, especially when you only have one chance in front of a class. How can you foster engagement and conversation while still teaching information literacy in an interesting way? Librarians at LDS Business College have been using game-based technologies in the classroom to engage students of all ages. The results are more participation in classes, more dialogue about the subject matter, and, at the end of the day, a more enjoyable library session. Come play games with us in a highly engaging presentation on Kahoot, Quizziz, Socrative, and more!

Describing Absence: An Analysis of the Utah American Indian Digital Archive
The presenters were faced with the task of creating best practices for ethically describing items and collections where information regarding marginalized groups, in this case Native Americans, was never recorded. The metadata of the Utah American Indian Digital Archive was analyzed via OpenRefine to highlight instances of this "archival silence" within the collection. This presentation aims to discuss the process as well as the larger problem of archival silence and how best to mitigate it.

Nothing Could Be Easier: Creating an OER for Fairy Tales, Intermediate Writing, and Information Literacy
The collaborative endeavor of teaching intermediate writing with the focus of fairy tales and introduction of information literacy has inspired the creation of an Open Educational Resource (OER). While the OER project is still in its infancy, this session will discuss how the individual courses benefit from being taught as co-requisites - encouraging students to transfer skills across disciplines - and how librarians can use collaborative ventures to bridge to other projects like OER.

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.

Numbers Don’t Lie: ILL Assessment through Monetary Cost/Benefit Analysis
Conveying the value of a free interlibrary loan service to library administration can be difficult. The Sherratt Library is employing a new method of cost-benefit data selection for ILL. Showing measurable decreases in collection development costs while maximizing user access lends greater administrative value to the service. This presentation outlines our process of data selection and application of a monetary value to ILL requests as well as tips for advocating the service to administrators.
