One of the strengths of Code4Lib is our willingness to share experience and learn from each other. As an experiment, we will go around the room. Introduce yourself and give an example of (1) something you are proud of and (2) something you are struggling with.

===Presentations ===
'''Digitizing World War One Music with the Illinois State Library and Pritzker Military Museum''' - Andrew Bullen, Illinois State Library I can talk about this program and how we use optical musical recognition to make “playable” MP3 files for the tunes. '''[ Digital Preservation at Loyola University Chicago]''' - Margaret Heller (and possibly others)Asmina Akram, Loyola University Chicago We made the vended choice for digital preservation, but what does that actually mean in practice? W or Th10 minutes '''[ Library Website Redesign Panel Discussion]''' - Various In 2016, several Chicago-area libraries redesigned their websites. This panel will discuss the different processes they went through and results. '''[ Towards a Linked Data workflow]''' - Tod A. Olson, University of Chicago The U. Chicago Library is experimenting with acting as a producer and consumer of linked data. I will discuss a pilot project involving centered around an existing collection of photographs. '''Search Experience at the University of Michigan Library''' - Jon Earley, University of Michigan Our newest search tool aims to greatly improve the discoverability and accessibility of our enormous volume of resources by bringing our complex siloed resources together and make them easily searchable in one interface. This presentation will focus on front-end technology decisions and architecture, why we decided to build this discovery interface, the overall strategic direction, and a demo of the beta application. W, 20 minutes '''Omeka to Scalar Transition''' - Matt Krc, Newberry Library '''Computational Archival Science: Highlights from the 2016 CAS Workshop''' ([ Slides]) - Robert J. Sandusky, University of Illinois at Chicago The workshop [ Computational Archival Science: Digital Records in the Age of Big Data] was held at the IEEE Big Data conference in Washington, D.C. in December 2016. This presentation will highlight some of the themes that emerged from the presentations, papers, posters, and discussions at the workshop. A related breakout session will allow code4lib Midwest attendees share what they're doing computationaly and what they need to scale up and improve accessibility, discoverability, and processing of archives and records.
