If They Are Special…Use Them! : A How to Guide for Processing and Tracking Special Collections Material
In 2017, the Merrill-Cazier Library at Utah State University undertook a project to barcode the entirety of the Special Collections & Archives. The goals of this initiative was to start tracking reading room circulations at the item level, and time stamping circulations at the point of contact.  There was also a desire to reap more complete data relating to patrons and collections, in order to better understand how to advocate and market collections, and to increase overall circulation.

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.
