Assessing the Value of E-Books Purchased through Demand-Driven Acquisitions
Libraries rely heavily on demand-driven acquisitions to purchase e-books that are of immediate value to their patrons. Library administrators, collection managers, and anyone involved in providing access to e-books should know how well their DDA program is meeting patron needs. This poster presents a brief analysis of four years of data on the USU Library’s DDA purchases, showing the insights that can be gathered on the quantity, cost, and use of DDA e-books across broad disciplinary categories.

Baptism by Barcoding: Introducing Library Student Workers to Special Collections Management
Catalogers at the Utah State University Merrill-Cazier Library are barcoding the entirety of Special Collections and Archives in order to efficiently track the usage of collection items. Students manage the collections and specialize in their different areas. The process involves cataloging, improving existing records, and spreadsheet tracking. Barcoding statistics are totaled and displayed on a physical map of the library. The map playfully markets the progress and value to administration.

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.

Trust Your Gut! Celebrating Special Collections in the Midst of Transformation

A team spent a year identifying opportunities for improvement in the areas of conservation, access, safety, collection management, and policy creation with the intent of improving our ability to prevent theft and damage to collections. A major focus was implementing a full reading room upgrade, including a system for patron registration and record keeping. We want to celebrate our progress toward improvement while continuing our self-evaluation and creating goals for the future.
