| style="border:0.0104in solid #cccccc;padding:0in;"| Katie Knight, Metadata and Cataloging Librarian, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
| style="border:0.0104in solid #cccccc;padding:0in;"| This presentation will be an overview of DOE Code, the new software project from the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI). DOE Code aims to provide an open source, social platform for all DOE scientific software. It connects to repositories on GitHub, Bitbucket, and others, and provides a place to host code for users that are unable to use other hosting services. Since DOE Code is itself an open source product, other institutions will be able to download and deploy it for their own purposes too. This presentation will also include some detail of the proposed metadata schema. By sharing our project with a community of information and metadata experts, we hope to invite discussion, critique, alternate perspectives, and/or general feedback so as to strengthen the project as a whole.

| style="border:0.0104in solid #cccccc;padding:0in;"| The Experience IS the Product: Hacking Library Experiences and Products with Design Thinking
| style="border:0.0104in solid #cccccc;padding:0in;"| Christeene Alcosiba,Manager of Operations and Public Programming, Rose Library, Emory University
| style="border-top:0.0104in solid #cccccc;border-bottom:0.0104in solid #000001;border-left:0.0104in solid #cccccc;border-right:0.0104in solid #cccccc;padding:0in;"| User Experience or UX design is an emerging discipline and specialty within academic libraries. But often our (or our executive leaders') understanding of this practice is limited to its application in web strategy and design. This talk explores ways that design thinking principles can enhance not only our web presence - but also hack the way we think about library processes, programs, and digital products.

| style="border:0.0104in solid #cccccc;padding:0in;"| Building information visualizations with PubMed
| style="border:0.0104in solid #cccccc;padding:0in;"| Ed Sperr, Clinical Information Librarian, Augusta University/University of Georgia Medical Partnership
| style="border:0.0104in solid #cccccc;padding:0in;"| The E-utils interface is a powerful tool for querying the multitude of databases available at the NCBI, particularly PubMed. In this session, we'll explore how one can use this interface in conjunction with Google charts and venn.js to develop simple (yet sophisticated) interactive tools for visualizing the biomedical literature.

| style="border:0.0104in solid #cccccc;padding:0in;"| Bret Davidson,Interim Associate Head, Digital Library Initiatives, North Carolina State University Libraries
| style="border:0.0104in solid #cccccc;padding:0in;"| Increased emphasis on the reproducibility of research has ignited a shift toward more open practices, creating new requirements for researchers to improve research infrastructure and develop a modern research skill set. This talk will define a modern research skill set, discuss its relationship to the principles of open science, and introduce the Scholar's Backpack, a project to help researchers create the scientific computing environments they need to be productive. We will show how we are simplifying the learning experience for novice data scientists, how we are improving the reproducibility of scientific computing environments, how these environments have been used in our own Summer of Open Science workshop series, and how they could be applied to library services in a variety of disciplines.
