Language is an Adventure - From the Library to the Classroom
(This session has concluded. Presentation slides and the video recording are available on this session page.)

Libraries and their resources have always been an important pillar of our communities. Libraries who have digital learning resources like Mango have become even more invaluable over the last year.

On a mission to inspire curious people to forge deeper connections through meaningful interactions, Mango Languages has spent the last 14 years refining a language learning system that leverages the power of modern technology and infuses it with time honored principles derived from Second Language Acquisition research.

As teachers and parents have been forced to find resources to keep their students and children engaged, libraries are poised to serve this critical need. Georgia State Library’s partnership with Mango Languages allows everyone in the state of Georgia to access Mango’s 70+ world languages and 20 ESL courses for free from the comfort of their own homes via both web and mobile.

Over the last few years we’ve continued optimizing our program with our Classroom edition that includes additional features to help support institutions and their students. Upgrading to the Mango Classroom allows instructors to track student progress, view quiz and assessment results, organize groups, and access additional curriculum support (teacher lessons plans, student workbook activities and best practices). Many schools in Georgia have found success in partnering with their local libraries to utilize Mango as a digital language learning resource for their students and their families.

Better Than Making Do -- Curating a Spectrum of Views with GALILEO's Ebooks
(This session has concluded. Click the button above for a pre-recorded presentation.) 

At Clarkston library GSU Perimeter College, students need basic overviews of controversial, current events. Alas, Issues and Controversies lacks the depth and breadth necessary for higher education, and scholarly articles are frequently too narrow and detailed for a first source. What students needed was access to book chapters. Fortunately, the switch to remote work was an opportunity to expand and update my LibGuide handout pages for ProCon sources. The result is a ten page and growing LibGuide with the most current ebooks on controversial issues, all accessible to students in hybrid learning. All it took was knowledge about my students, persistence, basic HTML, and of course GALILEO.

UGA Libraries piloted a purchase request link that appears when users view book records in the catalog or via the FIND IT @ UGA link resolver. Developed to facilitate ebook purchases during COVID-19, the purchase request link supports collection development at the user's immediate point of need. By pulling bibliographic data straight from the record into the form, the link makes the purchase request experience more seamless. In our presentation, we will discuss the evolution of this project over the pandemic, our usability and testing process, and how it has helped us better understand the collection needs and preferences of users.

PowerNotes: Maximizing your Library Resources and Improving Digital Learning
(This session has concluded. Presentation slides and the video recording are available on this session page.)

PowerNotes addresses the challenges inherent in source-based reading, writing, and studying . We designed PowerNotes to unify the steps of reading, gathering, saving, annotating, organizing, outlining, tracking, and citing research into a single, efficient workflow that feeds directly into the writing process. We built an early feedback feature which allows students to share their research, at any stage, with faculty, librarians, writing centers, and peers so that it can be reviewed and corrections can be made earlier in the process, particularly for online and distance learning scenarios.

Join our June 16th session to see how PowerNotes can:
  • increase the accessibility of your databases with integrated OCR;
  • improve reading comprehension and retention in the digital environment;
  • prevent unintentional plagiarism and contract cheating;
  • enable students to gather, annotate, and save content and citation information efficiently;
  • put students in the best position to write by providing an efficient organizational framework;
  • provide instructors and librarians with visibility into the students’ research process.

Engaging Patrons Virtually During a Pandemic and Beyond
(This session has concluded. Presentation slides and the video recording are available on this session page.)

The global pandemic has been challenging for every business, and libraries are no different. Most library buildings closed throughout the year, sending staff home and forcing in-person programming to become virtual. Zoom, Facebook, and Google Hangouts became go-to places for story time, music appreciation, and other events. Libraries also had to turn solely to digital engagement (whether social media or email marketing) to promote library card sign up, help look for books and other resources, and give advice on databases available on library computers – but now, accessible at home for patrons. Many libraries are without dedicated marketing staff, and they have had to boost their expertise in the digital space in spite of staffing constraints. During this session we will look at digital trends during the pandemic, what has been successful for libraries, what tools libraries can use and what tips can help as they continue to engage patrons virtually, even as the pandemic closures wane.

Local History in Context: Developing a Public Library Digital Exhibit Curators' Cohort
Limited Capacity seats available

(This session has concluded. The presentation slides and video recording are available on this session page.)

Georgia's public libraries have made great strides in digitizing their local history collections, making them accessible to anyone, anywhere, via the DLG. But what of the context and community that's lost in translation from physical collection to digital artifact? How are libraries to continue to tell the stories of their communities in the midst of a global pandemic?

Presenters will discuss recent efforts to train public librarians in digital exhibit creation using the Omeka S platform. The DigEx Project, which is in its pilot year, is working with three public libraries in Macon, Milledgeville, and Albany to create library-led digital exhibits. Project leaders, library curators, and advisory team members will share their experiences and discuss successes, challenges, and goals for the project's future.

The Placard Project: Recommending resources and subject guides based on users’ search terms in EBSCO EDS
(This session has concluded. The presentation slides and recording are available on this session page.)

Using Google Analytics, we found that UGA users often search in EBSCO EDS for resources that are not be available in the search results, including Google Scholar, JSTOR, and Pubmed. We created placards in EDS that help direct users, based on their search terms, to these resources outside of EDS. We also used these placards to recommend relevant subject libguides. In order to identify relevant search terms to trigger subject placards, we analyzed EDS search query trends using the text analysis tool Voyant. We also coordinated with subject liaisons to design and recommend relevant libguide linkouts from these placards. In this presentation, we will discuss our implementation process, its impact on users, and our next steps for this project.

OpenAthens Statistics: Talkin’ Attributes
Limited Capacity seats available

(This session has concluded. The presentation slides and video recording are available on this session page.)

OpenAthens provides platform level access statistics in almost real time. When these statistics are paired with attributes from your institution’s identity provider (IdP), OpenAthens becomes a powerful assessment tool, providing libraries with a means to gauge their contribution to student success and to discover more about how resources are used.

This information can help libraries to better target outreach, instruction, and collection development.

In this session, we will review some basic OpenAthens terminology, present an overview of OpenAthens statistics and reporting, and offer guidance on how librarians can better communicate with institutional IT and Infosec staff about attribute release policies.
