    A library lens on the Ithaka S+R US 2018 Faculty Survey results

    Would you like to explore opportunities to evolve or shape new library services based on quantitative data? Join us for a presentation of the Ithaka S+R Faculty Survey. The presenters will share insights into faculty research, teaching and publishing practices, and ideas for how librarians could incorporate this knowledge into the design of programs and services.

    In the 2018 survey cycle, Ithaka S+R expanded coverage of new issues including learning analytics, open educational resources, and evolving scholarly communication models. The Ithaka S+R US Faculty Survey has tracked the changing research, teaching and publishing practices of higher education faculty members and perception of the role of the library since 2000.

    Library value: student success, research outcomes & collection impact
    Melissa Bowles-Terry, Melissa Goertzen, Karen Gutzman Recorded: Jul 12 2018 60 mins
    Join our librarian presenters in this webinar as they share their unique stories about library value starting with themes that resonate with their stakeholders.

    They will discuss how it is important to measure and communicate the impact of library resources in terms of value of investment (VOI) rather than just return on investment (ROI). They will show examples of how to work with individual researchers and departments to spotlight their efforts and initiatives via better understanding, assessment, visualization and reporting of impactful outcomes of research and clinical care. And they will show how institutions can come together to pool data and share a powerful report on the impact of library instruction on student retention and academic success.


    • Going beyond usage to impact of resources
    • Tips for setting up an assessment program
    • Tracking publications with a full range of metrics
    • Enhancing research impact and the visibility of research
    • The impact of information literacy on student success
    • Connecting library programs to campus priorities such as student retention

  • Librarians and APIs 101: overview and use cases
    Librarians and APIs 101: overview and use cases
    Jonathan Hartmann, Georgetown Univ Medical Center; Robert Phillips, Univ of Florida Recorded: Oct 19 2017 55 mins
    The webinar presenters will provide an overview of APIs (application programming interfaces - see definition below) and a broad look at various use cases within the library from updating library systems to conducting research or facilitating access for other researchers.

    Specific use cases include using an API for text mining (clinical applications) and using APIs to update an institutional repository.

    The webinar is meant for librarians who do not currently have a strong technical background, but who want to familiarize themselves with the technology and its applications.


    An API is a software intermediary that allows two applications to talk to each other. In other words, an API is the messenger that delivers your request to the provider that you’re requesting it from and then delivers the response back to you. -- Shana Pearlman, MuleSoft Blog
