OPENING KEYNOTE Information Architecture: The Future of Libraries
8:45 AM 9:45 AM
Peter Morville, President, Semantic Studios

To understand the future of the library, we must look beyond its walls, to the tools and contexts—both physical and digital—where learning takes place. In school, where the disruptive innovations of open access and online courses are changing the architecture of education, the “embedded librarian” and the “single search box” aren’t just nice ideas: They’re mission-critical. And, in society, where citizens don’t know how to search, who to trust, or what to believe, our failure to advance information literacy threatens the very fabric of civilization. Morville connects the dots from ebooks to ecosystems, framing the library as both a cultural keystone and a courageous act of inspiration architecture. This is a story that’s colorful— both kaleidoscopic and contrarian—with an argument that just may change the way you think.

A102 The New State of Search: Google, Discovery, & Apps
11:15 AM 12:00 PM
Greg Notess, Faculty & Graduate Services Librarian, Montana State University

Search is changing. Google’s increased emphasis on its Knowledge Graph and predictive search along with hardware hopes is moving search in new directions at the same time that library databases are consolidating into discovery platforms and next-generation integrated library systems. Meanwhile, the diversity of devices and the proliferation of apps are leading to more and more different ways to search it all. Come hear the latest in how the search ecosystem is rapidly changing at all levels: from input to the results display and alternate forms of delivery.

A103 Modeling Real Search Skills in Action
1:15 PM 2:00 PM
Tasha Bergson-Michleson, Instructional and Programming Librarian, Castilleja School
Julie Erickson, Electronic Services Coordinator, South Dakota State Library

What is your experience of searching in front of patrons? Do you hope they don’t look at your screen, or wish that you could explain to them why you make the choices you do? We find that people learn search and research skills most frequently by looking over someone else’s shoulder. Thus, it is the job of today’s librarian to explicitly model strong research processes and encourage patrons by recognizing their own search strengths. Join this interactive session to discuss today’s search strategies and practice actively reflecting upon what you actually do that makes search work for you. Find new ways to help learners make these strategies their own, and take away actionable methods you can use in your own environment.

A104 Teaching Machines: Creating Better Search Engines
2:15 PM 3:00 PM
Mike DeMars, Systems Librarian, California State University, Fullerton

This session focuses on how libraries can utilize website search logs to improve search results for users. The Pollak Library monitors all of the queries that users perform on both the library site wide search and on Xerxes, its customized Ebsco Discovery interface. Analyzing these queries provided insight into how the library’s users were interacting with its site and brought to light some common mistakes our users were making. This analysis allowed the library to design new methods to more efficiently route users to the information they are looking for and to correct searches that would otherwise fail or return zero results. By teaching the machine how users search for items, the library greatly increased the likelihood that searchers are connected with relevant information.

A105 Discovery Services for Libraries
3:15 PM 4:00 PM
Marshall Breeding, Independent Consultant and Founder of Library Technology Guides, Founder of Library Technology Guides

The realm of technologies helping libraries provide access to their collections and services through their web presence continues to evolve and innovate. Index-based, or “web-scale” discovery services have become a mainstay in academic libraries in helping their users find the materials they need among the vast resources available to them. Socially oriented discovery interfaces and portal products help public and other libraries bring together a variety of service and content offerings. Breeding gives an update on the realm of these public-facing technology products and services and takes a look into the trends going forward.

A106 Discovery: Beyond the Single Search Box

B101 Responsive Web Design From the Trenches
10:15 AM 11:00 AM
Jeff Wisniewski, Web Services Librarian, University of Pittsburgh

Responsive web design (RWD) is an approach that enables organizations to create a single website that “responds” to the users’ context, be it desktop, tablet, mobile or other, and dynamically reconfigures itself to provide an optimized experience. No more separate mobile and desktop sites! Wisniewski explores responsive site redesign from beginning to end. Learn the hows of planning, testing, and executing responsive design, and take away practical, real-world tips and techniques.

B102 Tips on Redesigning Websites: From Mess to Success
11:15 AM 12:00 PM
Amanda Foust, Electronic Services Librarian, Marin County Free Library
Stacy Wittmann, Head of Reference Services, Eisenhower Public Library District
Julie Stam, Marketing Specialist, Eisenhower Public Library District

Foust discusses taking both a public and staff site from mess to success in a challenging environment with comments on new leadership, limited time, diverse staff in 10 locations, a library brand in flux, and a commitment to incorporating a full-scale social media integration. She shares tips on redesigns as well as lessons learned. In determining what the new virtual branch should include and how it should look, our next speakers asked, “Does pretty equal ‘good’”? They share victories and missteps in leading a web development project that focused on useful content before flashy design. They discuss how they employed usability testing and a comprehensive marketing plan to tie the launch into a year-long 40th anniversary celebration.

4:15 PM 5:00 PM
Faythe Arredondo, Teen Services Librarian, Tulare County Library
Amanda Grombly, Electronic Resources Librarian, Tulare County Library

Hear how one library is giving creative control through technological outlets to an underserved teen population and extending a lifeline to an older generation trying to catch and keep up. The new Digital Media Lab spawned a teen owned and operated summer reading program for 2013. TAG, the Teen Advisory Group, went to work using print and digital media to design the logos and illustrations for the program and later branched out to film several digital shorts used for clues and context in the summer murder-mystery. The Transliteracy program put power back into the hands, tablets, and desktop computers of the Boomer generation by helping them find vital information related to health and financial wellness. The Digital Literacy Workshop Series put power back into the hands, tablets, and desktop computers of the Boomer generation by helping them find vital information related to health and financial wellness. Beyond access, the series addresses a user's confidence in their ability to navigate computer systems and the internet. This largely rural community, with limited access to internet and technology, is increasing the availability of training and resources to a population out of the mainstream education continuum.

D101 Evolving Libraries: What's at Our Core?
10:15 AM 11:00 AM
Rudy Leon, Outreach & Instruction Librarian, University of Nevada, Reno

Are libraries “book warehouses” or “knowledge maker- spaces”? The nature of “things” patrons create with library tools has changed in recent years. However, this increasing complexity of tools has not changed the library’s central role of providing the space for information consumption, the training in support of various literacies, and support of knowledge creation in whatever form the researcher requires. The only thing that has really changed is the nature of the tools libraries support. Are we providing a broader array of tools needed to support multiple-media learning and literacy that enhance our rel- evancy to constituents—and to funding agencies? Join the discussion!
