At a time when the spread of misinformation, “fake news”, propaganda, and misleading sensationalism is prevalent and more powerfully disseminated than ever, it is important that students are able to properly navigate and analyze information and its sources.

Sorting Through the Confusion: Mis-attribution of Authors in HathiTrust, Project Gutenberg, and Other Online Resources

Using Focus Group Feedback: How the UVU Fulton Library Incorporated Feedback to Make Improvements and Reach More Students
In 2018 the UVU Fulton Library partnered with Institutional Research to run a Library Research Focus Group. They had 15 participants in two sessions. Students gave feedback on what was stressful about research, where they looked for help, and what barriers they experienced asking for help in the library. Using detailed qualitative data the Fulton Library addressed student concerns in instruction, wayfinding, and marketing reference services differently to tackle students’ needs.

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.
