The meeting will feature three presentations that spotlight collaborative digitization ventures at regional and national levels.

TRAIL: Technical Report Archive and Image Library (Mel DeSart, University of Washington): TRAIL was started in 2006 as a digitization project of the Greater Western Alliance, after engineering librarians lamented the poor access to technical report literature. Now a grassroots project run by (primarily) engineering and government documents across the country, TRAIL has digitized well over 40,000 technical reports – and it is still growing.

DALNET: Making Collaborative Digitization Projects Possible (Steven K. Bowers and Cathy Wolford, Detroit Area Library Network): DALNET is a consortium of multi-type libraries that supports various member institution digitization projects through collaboration and shared resources. This presentation will highlight specific examples of financial, technological, and collaborative networking resources, as well as a view of a non-traditional digitization project.

DPLA: Service Hubs and Content Hubs (Emily Gore, Digital Public Library of America): This presentation will feature the latest update on DPLA and explain how Service Hubs and Content Hubs are working, including the metadata clean-up going on within the Service Hubs.

Conversation Starters: Achievement unlocked: Motivating and assessing user learning with digital badges Program McCormick Place Convention Center
S102d
Description :

Libraries have increasingly begun to explore incorporating game design elements, such as digital badges, in their services to engage their user populations. Video games use digital badges to benchmark a player’s achievement as they progress throughout a game. Digital badges used in a real life setting can do this as well, as a way to assess a user’s progression as they develop a skill set. Digital badges are a wonderful way to highlight achievements, skill development, and learning in an online environments. Some libraries have begun to implement badge systems in various ways to assess and keep track of their users’ achievements.

Annie Pho, Young Lee, and Nicole Pagowsky will facilitate this conversation starter by discussing how libraries are using digital badges, current projects, and how attendees can implement badge systems in their own institutions. Panelists and attendees are encouraged to participate in a moderated discussion and share experiences or tips on using digital badges.

Exhibiting Taiwan Memories: Book Exhibitions of National Taiwan Library's Collection Poster session McCormick Place Convention Center
Hall A, Exhibit Floor
Description :

National Taiwan library is the oldest public library in Taiwan. The library collection has inherited books from the Taiwan imperial library from the Japanese ruled period. In order to promote our special collection and provide services for the study of Taiwan, we plan an books exhibition of our Taiwan studies collection from 2008.

Using differently themed topics we exhibited old and precious books from the Taiwan Imperial Library. So far we have held 21such exhibitions up to the end of last year. The exhibition topics have included education, architecture, literature, religion, transportation and so on for each exhibition.
Through the structure of these exhibitions we have introduced insight into the Japanese ruled period of Taiwan from various angles.
Besides the exhibitions we have also developed four other methods to promote the collection. They are:
1) An exhibition tour featuring Taiwan Studies books.
2) The publication of"TThe Annual Atlas of Books exhibition for the study of Taiwan.
3) A mobile exhibition of the collection.
4) An online exhibition of the book collection.
Utilizing these strategies has allowed us to discover the value of these old books for current study and emphasise their historical significance.

Growing Readers at Storytime: A critical analysis of Canadian library website content about early literacy Poster session McCormick Place Convention Center
Hall A, Exhibit Floor
Description :

Public library websites provide information about programs, services and collections. This study examines web content about early literacy aimed at parents and how well it reflects community diversity. While acknowledging that children's librarians' real-life interactions with young children and their families are of paramount importance, we must also consider the early literacy messages that public libraries are delivering on their libraries’ virtual pages and how these messages can be made more reflective and inclusive of community diversity. This poster presentation summarizes an academic study of 20 urban Canadian libraries. Specifically, the researcher sought evidence that these libraries reflect diversity through their web content about early literacy. The results of the study suggest that many libraries are not using their websites to their full potential to promote and support early literacy within diverse communities. By using examples of text and images taken from the data she gathered, the poster will emphasize a number of recommendations for all public libraries to consider. Tess Prendergast has worked as a children's librarian for 16 years. She is now in her second year of doctoral studies within the Department of Language and Literacy Education at the University of British Columbia. Her research explores how communities and community programs, especially libraries, can provide early literacy support to families whose children have disability labels.
