2:50 PM 3:15 PM 0:25:00 Presentation Building information visualizations with PubMed Ed Sperr, Clinical Information Librarian, Augusta University/University of Georgia Medical Partnership 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.

3:15 PM 3:40 PM 0:25:00 Presentation The Scholar's Backpack: Using virtual environments to support modern research practice. Bret Davidson,Interim Associate Head, Digital Library Initiatives, North Carolina State University Libraries 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.

3:40 PM 4:05 PM 0:25:00 Presentation All Together Now: AUC Woodruff Library's Collaborative Coding Interest Group Joshua Hogan, Metadata & Digital Resources Librarian, and Justin DeLa Cruz, Unit Head, E-Learning Technologies, Atlanta University Center, Woodruff Library In the spring of 2016 librarians and other staff members at the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library began to discern a need for enhancing staff skills in computer programming and information technology. Staff members across many departments were keen to enhance their skills to work with digital asset management programs, online materials, websites and library guides, or automating repetitive tasks. Accordingly, librarians from the Digital Services Department and the E-Learning Technologies Department began meeting to plan the formation of a collaborative group. The Coding Interest Group, as it became known, was created to enhance learning and maintain motivation through peer mentorship and shared experience. This presentation will focus on the experiences the group has had as a collaborative group, learning and teaching new skills together. It also aims to provide recommendations on how to establish similar initiatives in other libraries. Tips on best practices and reflections on improvement will also be included. Link to presentation
