Title - jQuery for a Citation Game
 +
 
 +
Presenter, Affiliation - Minhao Jiang, Wayne State University
 +
 
 +
Description
 +
 
 +
The Wayne State University's citation game, accessible at https://library.wayne.edu/services/instruction/research/mod6/ (they are located near the far right end of the carousel), experienced a round of modernization just months ago due to various reasons including the shift from the use of technologies that were researched to be both increasingly proprietary and on the decline to those which are open source. jQuery widgets ended up being used as the replacement. The citation game is an excellent example that web development technologies can be used beyond the intended way, and be translated to an essential piece in library instruction. In addition to the introduction of the background, the presentation will focus on lessons learned including those related to interplay with the coda-slider package, which provides the sliding behavior among all game sessions pertaining to a particular citation format.

Title - Overcoming the Pitfalls of LibGuides through Design

Presenter, Affiliation - Simon Robins, Northwest Ohio Medical University
 +
 
 +
Description
 +
 
 +
This presentation will focus on two case examples of comprehensive LibGuide redesigns which aimed to depart from traditional usage of LibGuides with regard to design and layout. It will include a discussion of the HTML and CSS developed and the usability heuristics applied. I will also detail how I envision this type of content as a departure from standard usage of LibGuides at academic libraries, which often consists of bulleted lists of resources. This presentation will encourage the librarian community, especially the medical librarian community, to think of their LibGuides as web content deserving of the same attention to design, usability, and appearance as other online content.

Description
 +
 
 +
The Miami University Web Service Team of the University Library is renovating the library website in recent months and keep working on the site building. During the process, the team has examined the general Content Management System platforms and summarized a series of advantages and disadvantages of these applications. Meanwhile, the proposal for replacing the current platform (Drupal 7) with a Static Site Generator (Jekyll) is rising in the website development industry. Therefore, the Miami University Library Web Service Team decided to apply a combination of CMS + SSG to renovate the library website. In this presentation, the web service librarian from the team would like to share the evaluation process and decision making of the project, and to discuss the methodology of finding a suitable platform to develop a library website.

Description

 +
After a couple of years of intense development, FOLIO is reaching the stage where libraries are considering its use for production tasks. One of the aims of FOLIO is to reduce the effort required for testing out new ideas for in the library marketplace. The core apps have RESTful APIs all the way down to the tenant configuration level, which enables other systems to interact with FOLIO in unique ways. This talk demonstrates the user interface of FOLIO (project name "Stripes") and the RESTful microservices gateway (project name "Okapi"). Participants will have a greater understanding of FOLIO's vision for an app-based platform and the mechanics of the FOLIO technology.

Description
 +
 
 +
As all of our information moves from print to digital objects we need new ways to validate, cross-reference, and authenticate information. The Web 3.0 is providing us the next generation tools to help connect, describe, and verify that the informational resources we are using are factually related. Like most intelligences this will be automated through AI engines, coded algorithms, resource linking, and accurate metadata. We will explore some of the current technologies (APIs, Cloud Providers,…), open access protocols (Linked Open Data, DOIs, URIs,…), and community initiatives (Semantic Web, RDF,…) The goal of this presentation is to provide an overview of current linking technologies, demonstrate possible integration for your institutional repository, and discuss the future of validation and verification.

One of the aims of FOLIO is to reduce the effort required for testing out new ideas for in the library marketplace. The core apps have RESTful APIs all the way down to the tenant configuration level, which enables other systems to interact with FOLIO in unique ways. This talk demonstrates the user interface of FOLIO (project name "Stripes") and the RESTful microservices gateway (project name "Okapi"). Participants will have a greater understanding of FOLIO's vision for an app-based platform and the mechanics of the FOLIO technology.


Title - The Connected Repository : The Bibliography of the Web

Presenter, Affiliation - Thomas Scherz, University of Cincinnati

Description

As all of our information moves from print to digital objects we need new ways to validate, cross-reference, and authenticate information. The Web 3.0 is providing us the next generation tools to help connect, describe, and verify that the informational resources we are using are factually related. Like most intelligences this will be automated through AI engines, coded algorithms, resource linking, and accurate metadata. We will explore some of the current technologies (APIs, Cloud Providers,…), open access protocols (Linked Open Data, DOIs, URIs,…), and community initiatives (Semantic Web, RDF,…) The goal of this presentation is to provide an overview of current linking technologies, demonstrate possible integration for your institutional repository, and discuss the future of validation and verification.
