Submittals from underfunded institutions, or work from individuals acting alone with limited access to collaborators or resources is to be particularly encouraged, especially in the case of otherwise equal scores. Any decisions differing from the acceptance results suggested by the peer review process must be kept to a minimum, and must be reasoned by a need for broader representation.
The paper will be withheld from the publication process until the case is resolved. All information on the paper should remain confidential and for no reason should any aspect of the case be discussed publicly. As a Technical Chair , you are responsible for the production of all conference proceedings both digital and physical. The technical chairs should utilize the Scholastica platform for communications with authors and to collect submissions.
Authors should receive a reasonable amount of time to check for errors and submit revisions. The technical chairs have the right to reject any requested changes beyond the scope of error checking. The Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture is an international network of digital design researchers and professionals. We facilitate critical investigations into the role of computation in architecture, planning, and building science, encouraging innovation in design creativity, sustainability, and education.
We find ourselves at a moment where there is no longer a divide between analog and digital processes; the digital world is ubiquitous, inescapable. On the other hand, the discourse of architecture is drifting toward theories and practices of a more autonomous nature, practices that in many ways reject connectivity in favor of separation and articulation. Furthermore, these issues have taken root in our disciplines renewed interest in aesthetics, representation, fabrication, theory, and as a pedagogical approach to design.
The very nature of how technology is being used has been called into question. Conferences One of ACADIA's major missions is to organize and present an annual conference on topics of interest to the architectural computing community. Conference Hosting Hosting an ACADIA conference is a great way to both serve the design computation community and bring more exposure to your own home institution.
Conference Guidelines Here are a number of documents that should help you understand what is expected of ACADIA conference hosts, as well as what is provided in terms of support for hosts. Conference responsibilities are generally divided between a Site Chair and a Technical Chair. While it is desirable to have a coordinated proposal, separate proposals for site and technical aspects of the conference are not uncommon.
If the Steering Committee accepts the proposal, the President will be authorized to compose a letter such as this, in which the formal structure of the conference organization is set forth. Legal Notes We have learned that greater clarity is needed regarding budgeting responsibilities and the conference process, especially in the hectic days shortly before the conference itself happens. Conference Proceedings Each year ACADIA holds a conference at which peer-reviewed papers are presented and published in a volume of conference proceedings.

Attendees will leave with a large list of resources to demo on their own and share with colleagues. Open Web Tools Infographic pdf. However, in order to make this transition, libraries must first wean themselves from their current means of data communication, MARC. MARC was a revolution in its day. It allowed data from library card catalogs to be encoded in machine-readable form, enabling the catalog cards to be reproducible on the computer screen and the data to be exchanged freely among libraries.
It is a fifty-year-old technology, however, originally designed for magnetic tape-based computers, and now only understood by library systems. In addition, the MARC formats are semantically inexpressive and have isolated libraries from the development of the Web. The session will begin with a brief introduction about the importance of the transition to linked data and a summary of the objectives of the PCC URI task force.
Members of the audience can interact with the panel and ask about these services in relationship to their libraries. Members of the audience can expect to learn more about the transition to linked data and how to better prepare their MARC data for this inevitable transition. Strategic Restructuring: staffing collections for an evolving scholarly landscape The core work of collection development and management has never been more complex.
Added to the traditional decision making around the content itself are layers of strategic decisions around access, licensing, DRM and preservation. New and evolving business models have increased the choices for procurement. Issues of cost containment and sustainability, as well as pressures for more student space, have fueled the need for more in-depth collections analysis and assessment.
To effectively respond to these challenges, some academic libraries have engaged in restructuring to build strategic collections teams. We will discuss this work at three Canadian academic libraries who are each at a different stage in the process: the University of Alberta, University of Guelph and Western University. The evolution of the teams and the impact on workflows, capacity building and decision making will be described. The University of Guelph Library reorganized from a liaison librarian model to a strategic team based model in , resulting in the creation of the Information Resources Strategic Team which has undergone further iterations since that time.
In , the University of Alberta Libraries moved from a decentralized model of monograph acquisitions that involved all liaison librarians, to a centralized model that eliminated individual selection. In this model further evolved with the formation of a centralized team of collection strategies librarians who are responsible for all aspects of collections work, allowing liaisons to focus on other emerging service areas.
Following three years of planning, the libraries moved to a hybrid approach, helping to better accommodate the professional libraries and archives. Tangible, first steps will be discussed. The presentation will wrap up with the common themes, lessons learned and next steps drawn from the experiences at our three libraries. Strategic Restructuring Staffing collections for an evolving scholarly landscape pdf.
ORCID provides a framework for trustworthy identity management by linking research contributions and related activities across the scholarly communication ecosystem, with benefits for both individuals and organizations such as research institutions, publishers, government agencies, and funders. Individuals can obtain a unique ORCID iD for free, which serves as a digital identifier distinguishing individual researchers from other researchers and enabling them to manage their records. With over 95 institutional members currently taking advantage of this national consortial approach to ORCID in the US, and increasing adoption of ORCID by publishers, funders, and other organizations worldwide, we are at the cusp of a paradigm shift from repetitive print-based workflows to fully harnessing the power and advantages of the digital age in the research and scholarly communication landscape.

The Legalities and Demand that Necessitates a Library Video Streaming Service There are many differing interpretations of copyright law when it comes to digitizing and providing streaming video as a library service.
Librarians at the University of Kansas KU have long been interested in providing a streaming video service for pedagogical purposes, but KU General Counsel always took a conservative stance on this practice and would not allow it. When KU Libraries hired a new Dean, who was also a copyright attorney, General Counsel became amenable to the Fair Use arguments the Dean provided, and after working through workflow and technical issues, a new streaming service was introduced to KU faculty and students.
Growing demand for streaming content along with the diminishing availability of playback equipment in the classroom for VHS and DVDs were primary motivators in the establishment of this service. Preference for streaming content for classroom use mirrors the greater trend for streaming content and the downward trend for physical media in the marketplace, as well as the increased usage of video for classroom instruction and research.
This service not only serves to meet faculty and student expectations for access, it allows for greater accommodation of online and distance education. In this session, KU Librarians will survey the policies at selected academic libraries for providing access to streaming video and discuss the various interpretations of copyright law and Fair Use, including the interpretation of Fair Use that allows the KU Libraries to provide a streaming service.
The discussion will also include an examination of the rationale and the technological environment at KU that necessitates such a service, along with the workflow planning and troubleshooting involved in bringing this new service to life. Lea Currie has been the head of Content Development at the University of Kansas Libraries since and employed with the Libraries in other positions since Concurrent , LS: Library Services. While there has been significant discussion of the benefits of press-library integration and collaboration, less time has been given to exploring areas of tension that can emerge when presses report to libraries.
What cultural and professional differences can frustrate the creation of strong partnerships? Finally, what strategies can be deployed for avoiding or resolving conflicts, all with the goal of promoting true collaboration and a sustainable scholarly communications landscape? Each panelist will bring a different perspective to the discussion, as well as different reasons as to why and when their press moved into the library. This session will be of benefit to library administrators, librarians working in scholarly communications and publishing, and university press staff who want to better understand the realities and challenges of press-library integration.
The session will focus on strategies for building positive relationships across professional boundaries, with time for attendees to participate in a discussion about how librarians and publishers can work together in support of our authors, readers, and scholarly communities. Come for a lively, rapid-fire group of talks. French remains one of the most important languages for scholarship, and thus publications in all formats continue to be acquired by North American research libraries across the disciplines. This presentation posits that it is not the language in which the books are published that acts as a barrier to access but the paucity of the metadata for these digital works.
Though this problem is not unique to French publications from Europe, it is endemic to many digital monographs from the non-English speaking world, thereby marginalizing valuable scholarly content. The critique comes at a time when controlled vocabulary and Library of Congress Subject Headings are being passed over in favor of more easily obtainable descriptive metadata such as publisher-supplied summaries, table of contents, and user-supplied tags.
Is there a role for libraries to ensure that ebooks in non-English languages are discoverable? The volunteers were losing their sponsor, and the Libraries stepped in to provide space and oversight of the project while the disposition of the collection came under review. Working with the Smithsonian Archives and the National Museum of Natural History, we obtained grant funding to house the most vulnerable annotated maps, as well as to plan for collections care. We also tackled important issues including copyright and U. As more Smithsonian museums and units have learned about the project, the number of maps in the project continues to grow, while we navigate the evolving stewardship of the collection.
Though it was slow to take off, when it did, usage increased rapidly. After depleting the initial budget for the resource, we allocated more funds and then quickly depleted those additional funds. At that point, we changed to a mediated model to help control the costs but that greatly increased work for our Acquisitions Department and raised collection development questions we had not considered when we began the PDA program.
To continue to offer a streaming video PDA program, we reviewed various models and controls before deciding on an approach that we hope will give users good options, curtail costs, and minimize workloads. This session will provide practical information for small to mid-sized academic libraries that have recently begun or are contemplating streaming video PDA.

When creating new library services through the use of next-gen technology, it is as essential as ever for librarians to collaborate with the user community to understand the technologies and workflows already in place, motivators for change, and barriers to access new projects or initiatives.
Margaret Briand Wolfe, Systems Librarian at Boston College shares insights from the community survey regarding the technologies used by libraries today, their current challenges, and plans for the future. The presentation will include updates on the newly developed tools and roadmap functionality that harness artificial intelligence to make intelligent, action-oriented recommendations, as well as plans for system advancements at Boston College.

Diversity and inclusion Michael D. Roy Dean of the Library, Middlebury College. I'm interested in talking with people at this conference about the intersections of librarianship, academic technology, open access publishing, digital scholarship, and how all of these inform 21st century visions of digital learning, and emerging forms of literacy. He wrote much of the software, launched the business and guided the long term technical and product vision. GetThere went public in and was sold to Sabre Trends in curriculum collecting by subject area and copyright year will be paired with analysis of institutional practices by geography and institution size.
Case studies involving best practices on campuses making high use of open and licensed electronic curriculum materials will be included. Special attention will be paid to non-traditional curriculum materials such as books not labeled as textbooks and materials used in smaller classes. Challenges such as acceptance of electronic texts for classroom use and limitations on electronic textbook availability will also be discussed.
I have had various roles in scholarly publishing since , and fifteen years as a subscription agent before that. I have library degrees from the University at Albany and Syracuse University. I like to talk about cooperative marketing projects between libraries and publishers Lively Discussion , CD: Collections. Academic Libraries: How do they put it all together, become agile, and adapt?
Quick answer: Its all about leadership. Academic libraries and their leaders are challenged more than ever to be increasingly relevant to their communities, which is dominated by digital organizations, culture, and technology. The speaker, a dean of a major academic library, will discuss strategies for moving libraries toward a new core of programs that enhance teaching, learning, and research. A lively conversation with the speaker and audience members is encouraged.
Lively Discussion , MT: Management. Authentication, Identity Management, Privacy and Personalisation: How can libraries strike the right balance and avoid the growing dystopian dangers? Artificial Intelligence is being deployed to track ever more aspects of our lives. The dangers of privacy invasion are real, and libraries have been rightly cautious in their approach to authentication within their walls. While various Single Sign-On authentication protocols have emerged, there is still a great deal of resistance by libraries to adopt any form of authentication beyond IP.
Yet, the internet is increasingly delivering valuable personalized tools and experiences that are changing user expectations and demands.

Beyond Circulation: Assessing Collections in the Age of Student Success In a time of decreasing collections budgets and expectations of increased fiscal accountability in libraries, collection management librarians are increasingly expected to justify expenditures through the provision of usage data to their stakeholders. Yet traditional methods of collection assessment, often focused upon summary circulation statistics, are only marginally useful in demonstrating collection strength to patrons. To paint a more complete picture of a library's successful collection development program, librarians need to identify and verify a relationship between circulation statistics and improved student outcomes, as well as support of faculty scholarship and teaching.
While this task can seem daunting, many methods not involving the use of advanced statistics or an inordinate amount of time and effort do exist. This presentation will: a provide a brief review of the literature of collection assessment as it relates to patron success; and b review several methods of collection assessment beyond basic circulation counts, including analysis of circulation and interlibrary loan activity, citation analysis of patron scholarship, and circulation statistics as they relate to such student success measures as GPA, with practical examples of such analysis from a small university library.
Session attendees will be given a template for developing or enhancing their own assessment plans, and time will be provided for small group discussions to identify first steps and potential obstacles.

Bringing new scholarly communications librarians into bloom. Do you need a JD to lead a library copyright program? Is research data management too big a job for any one person? Scholarly communication is recognized as a core competency for librarianship but there is currently no unified educational resource available for training and continuing education that represents the great diversity of experience and perspectives at place in effective support for scholarly communication.
This lively discussion asks librarians, publishers, vendors and other interested information professionals to weigh in on a community conversation about what scholarly communication is and what training a librarian should have to do the job. Join the conversation about what kind of librarians we should be growing and what they need to blossom! Collective Action: Community Approaches in Scholarly Communication "Community and scholarly communication are intertwined by design.
Researcher careers, research institutions, and global collaborations progress based on the communication of ideas. Cultivating change in this space involves navigating the cultural norms of inter- and intra-disciplinary groups, funders, publishers, and infrastructure. Mobilizing communities capable of supporting this work is a daunting task.
Determining who your community is, how to create a sense of belonging among them, and the ways that they will work together are interrelated challenges that all community initiatives in scholarly communication must face. This Lively Discussion will feature five individuals with experience working on a range of projects that have taken unique approaches to working with their communities.
From coordinating a network of data science instructors to advocating for improved technical infrastructure in scholarly communication, each participant has faced different challenges and surfaced new opportunities. Collectively, the participants in the session will begin to map the many ways that community approaches in scholarly communication are similar and can build upon one another, as well as how and why paths may diverge. He coordinates workshops globally, and develops the community infrastructure that will facilitate growth.
Her primary role is to broaden awareness of the organization and its services and programs, and to support adoption by key stakeholders and audiences. She also works with a number of community initiatives in scholarly communication, including Metadata , the recently established C4DISC Coalition for Diversity and Inclusion in Scholarly Communications , and a soon-to-be-launched, cross-community campaign for wider adoption and use of persistent identifiers. He is also founding member of the Chicago Collaborative, a group dedicated to finding common ground among the librarian, publisher and editorial communities, and the Chair of the steering committee for the Open Scholarship Initiative, a UNESCO-sponsored global convention featuring all stakeholders in scholarly communication.

Lou is a trained molecular biologist with research experience at Cambridge University, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, and Dangerous liaisons: brainstorming the 21st century academic liaison Academic liaison roles have seen massive growth to an ever-broadening range of duties.
Beginnings: Early traditions were rooted in the subject bibliographer whose expertise was focused on library collection development. Academic liaisons thereby feel the pull of subject expertise as well as functional expertise. About this session: Session participants brainstormed on areas of liaison serves that work well for them, areas of difficulty, training needs, job functions to add and drop, ideas for solutions, and must-have competencies for library liaisons. Part 2 -- Interactive exercises: 1. Guided by interactive live polls, the participants identified key liaison functions missing from the descriptions.
Next, the participants noted superfluous functions which pose distractions from liaison roles. Antje Mays, Director of Collections at University of Kentucky Libraries, leads collection management efforts in support of the University's growing academic programs and research activities. An experienced linguist, translator, and interpreter, she also serves as academic liaison Expand Your Online Presence: Promote Your Scholarly activities with Author Services "Academic librarians are well known for training and teaching students how to navigate research databases and other electronic resources in information literacy programs and one-shot information literacy training sessions.
However, students are not the only constituent at our institutions who require training in the research process. We are directors of the library and learning center LLC and institutional research and training IRT at an institution that is primarily a teaching-focused college. For many years, our faculty had no formal expectations of consistent publishing. This changed recently when college leadership announced that the new vision of the college included consistent faculty scholarly output. To encourage faculty publication, we have worked one-on-on and in small group training on topics such as survey design, data analysis, and how to write literature reviews.
Recently we co-facilitated a workshop on how to promote their publications using web-based Author Services. Join us in this lively presentation no PowerPoint here! In addition, he supervises and hires librarians, tutors, paraprofessionals, as well Monica D. Rysavy, Ph. In this role she leads all institutional research and data analysis projects for the College.
Her office provides faculty and staff training support Gatekeeper or Navigator? An Outsider's Take on Librarian Approach In the day of instantaneous information access, can a gatekeeper truly control access to information or do they simply alienate the people they serve? If a librarian sees themselves as a navigator through the murky, confusing and overwhelming information available, are they more relatable to their patrons?
Which model serves the library better? Do the libraries and library patrons of the future need gatekeepers, navigators, or something else? Do patrons respond better to a particular methodology? This proposed Lively Discussion will look at how librarians approach their occupation and how that shapes librarian-patron relationship.
I would love to hear from industry professionals how they see librarian roles and if they feel libraries are currently being well served by these roles. Good Partners? Can Open Access publishers and librarians find meaningful ways to collaborate? What should the relationship be between the purely Open Access publishers and librarians? Yes, in theory, among publishers these are publishers who are fully aligned with libraries to end the stranglehold which the traditional subscription publishers have on libraries. Since they don't have renewal revenue at risk they may not pay sufficient attention to usage and integration with library systems [KBART?
Since collection development librarians don't have to assign budget dollars to purchasing their content--maybe they don't need attention from librarians. The big subscription journals collect just one payment a year, and with big bundles, just one payment to cover thousands of journals. Are Open Access publishers just replacing that with thousands of tiny payments either in article processing costs, or in membership schemes for individual researchers? What are some initiatives that these publishers are trying that can avoid having the costs of publishing being invoiced to individual authors?
Can these publishers, aligned as they are with libraries on the defects in the subscription system, be good partners with librarians in areas such as: Open Science Pre-print Servers Integration with Open Repositories Open Monograph publishing O. Come to a Lively Discussion with a panel of purely Open Access publishers and librarians to brainstorm these and other questions effecting how the pure Open Access publishers and librarians might collaborate more effectively.

It generally refers to sexism, racism, and classism, but the meaning has evolved since it was introduced, encompassing sexual orientation, religion, age, disability or differently abled, if you will , and even region West vs.
In this session, we will explore what intersectionality is, and who it affects. We will discuss how the term has changed over time to encompass a variety of overlapping discriminatory practices affecting marginalized groups. Our speakers will talk about how they have worked to educate others about discrimination through their own programs, teaching, and actions. They will cover areas, such as research methodology, critical information literacy, and how intersectionality has been applied to library science, specifically within scholarly conversations.
We will also explore ways libraries can take part in the conversation by offering resources and programming that support research and inquiry. Audience participation and sharing of experience will be encouraged as a broad array of perspectives will spur dialogue and help foster ideas.
I've worked in the educational publishing industry for over 20 years and held various roles in marketing, sales, business development, product management, and new product development.

Open Research as a concept is also fluid and building momentum and will likely be the supporting structure of all academic research and scholarly communications in the near future. What does this mean for the big deal? Join us for a panel to discuss these issues and how all the stakeholders in open research can grow together into a more open academic world.
She liaises with campus partners on the development of targeted outreach and programming that promote scholarly communication and open access, and develops open education strategies to further the campus mission of research Popular or recreational reading collections are just one of myriad ways that academic libraries contribute to these efforts.
This panel discussion will feature perspectives from three libraries one private medium sized university, one large public STEM-focused, one large public comprehensive university and their take on the role of popular reading collection in academic libraries. Attendees can expect to be part of an interactive discussion on how to launch and configure popular reading collections for their target audience, assess the use and potential impact of these collections, share creative ways to promote the collections, and learn about strategies for contextualizing these collections within the academic library mission and vision.
She has also taught a credit-bearing Information Literacy course State of Play: Research insights on effective educational video in the library As students and faculty increasingly embrace video as a teaching and learning resource, libraries are often left to grapple with what kind best meet the interest and learning expectations of their constituents. Though there is mutual acceptance of video as a tool and resource, faculty and students have unique behavior and preferences regarding the medium.
As various types of platforms, formats, designs, and elements play into what comprises effective video, how should librarians select video content for their libraries? Based on recent empirical research, this presentation will help librarians better understand what faculty and students need from academic video resources. I graduated from Covenant College with History Degree.

Miller teaches courses in cognitive The Digital Scholarship Strata: Exploring Options to Support the Widest Cross-Section of the Student and Scholarly Body "Besides eluding a common definition, the digital humanities often shake traditional conventions around pedagogy, instruction, and learning.
But is this a negative attribute? How else can new frontiers of research morph and adapt to current constructs of instruction when they, themselves, are meant to challenge what we think we know and how we approach new research methodologies? Our speakers are grounded in both new and traditional approaches to digital scholarship and how to enable the use of digital tools in support of text analysis. Lively Discussion , TE: Technology. However, with global entrepreneurship on the rise, business innovation is no longer confined to traditional business programs.
Generally, this is where business librarians can make valuable connections with the campus community. Having supported aspiring entrepreneurs for years, these librarians are now serving the larger campus community by teaching non-business majors to use specialized business-library resources. Please join us for a question and answer-style session with five librarians who will discuss how they support aspiring student entrepreneurs on their campuses, including what library resources meet known demand and how to market those resources beyond the business school.
They will also share ways for the library to become a central hub for entrepreneurial development. Areas of discussion include: What role can the library play in supporting entrepreneurship across campus, specifically for non-business students, alumni, and community members? As the social entrepreneurship movement grows, how are libraries supporting those needs? What resources do students need to support their start-up ambitions?
What role can librarians play in entrepreneurship competitions on their campuses?

This session will highlight how libraries are meeting patrons at their point of need.
We will focus on how libraries can extend themselves within the institutional setting. Presenters will share real-world, examples of collaborative efforts to gain greater awareness of discovery capabilities and library resources to improve research outcomes.

Budgets On My Mind: Changing Budget Allocations to Meet Teaching and Research Needs The shifting landscape of academic programs, scholarly communication, acquisition environment, and staffing patterns in academic libraries necessitates changes in resources budget structure and allocation models to align with and be responsive to this new landscape. This presentation includes case studies from two libraries. They share changes made to their budget structure and allocation, and invite participants to a conversation on budget allocation models in libraries. Carnegie Mellon University Libraries is changing their budget allocation in response to new educational programs and new library faculty.
This case study will discuss these changes and describe how the budget will be allocated in the future at Carnegie Mellon University. In fall , the University of Washington Libraries began a multi-year process to examine and update the resources budget structure and allocation. The budget structure and allocation model at UW Libraries remained fundamentally unchanged for over twenty years. Recognizing that the budget structure and allocation model no longer aligned with the changes in our environment UW Libraries initiated this process with the goal of developing a model better designed to serve students and researchers, and allow us to respond nimbly to the challenges and opportunities.
In this case study we will discuss the budget review process and describe the phased approach including an environmental scan, working with a consultant and subject librarians to gather feedback, and describe some of the challenges. We will describe the changes we implemented in the first year.
As part of this process we conducted a survey of academic libraries on their budget structure and allocation practices. The survey ran from June 20 to July 31, and received 90 responses. We will present a summary of findings from this survey, discuss some conclusions that inform our budget review process, as well as describe trends in academic library budget practices.
She is currently a member of the American Library Association Council. Building a narrative for researchers around open research impact Around the world, we continue to see a proliferation in policy direction relating to open access and open research. Uptake of OA has continued to grow, with growing awareness from researchers about the benefits of open research. However, how researchers understand the impact of publishing openly — from articles to books and research data - is sketchy at best.
A number of studies have attempted to understand how open research is increasing scholarly impact, predominantly from a bibliometric perspective. In this session we will provide a publisher, library, researcher and funder perspective on how and why we are working to increase understanding amongst researchers of the reach and impact of publishing open access articles, books and data.
