Discovering Hidden Needs: How DDA Can Revolutionize Monograph Collection Development
    Wednesday May 23, 2012 3:00pm - 4:00pm @ Patterson Hall, Room 300

    Demand-driven acquisition (DDA, also sometimes called PDA, patron-driven acquisition) of e-books allows patrons to get immediate access to e-books they need, while libraries pay for only the books that actually get used.  Librarians have sophisticated tools to pre-filter the e-books available to patrons. And it all runs through the library's catalogue, seamless to the patrons. This session will bring together three speakers, Meg Ecclestone, of YBP Library Services, to explain the systems used by vendors to help create targeted DDA programs in partnership with libraries, Lou Duggan, of Saint Mary’s University, to describe his PDA project with EBrary, and Novanet’s investigation of consortia PDA/DDA models, and Melissa Belvadi, of UPEI, to describe how her small institution got started in the last year with a very small budget and the outcome so far.  Discussion will include both the mechanics and underlying philosophical issues of using DDA as a collections development tool.

Social Media Research: Making Sense of a Networked World
    Wednesday May 23, 2012 3:00pm - 4:30pm @ Patterson Hall, Room 330

    The Social Media Lab (http://SocialMediaLab.ca) at Dalhousie's School of Information Management studies how social media and other web 2.0 technologies are changing the ways in which people communicate and disseminate information and how these changes are impacting social, economic, and political norms and structures of our modern society. In addition, we are developing and testing new web tools and apps for discovering and visualizing information and online social networks. The broad aim of our various research initiatives is to provide decision makers with additional knowledge and insights into the behaviours and relationships of online network members, and to understand how these interpersonal connections influence our personal choices and actions.

    This panel will highlight some of the various research initiatives currently underway at the Social Media Lab. The sample projects to be presented will include a study on political polarization in social media, the adoption and use of social media among scholars and a study of the TheOneRing.net, an online fan community.

The Post-Access Copyright Landscape: A Report from the Atlantic Region
    Thursday May 24, 2012 10:30am - 12:00pm @ Patterson Hall, Room 224

    During 2011, the issue of copyright dominated the agendas of Canadian universities and colleges due to a massive proposed increase in license fees by Canadian copyright collective, Access Copyright. This presentation will provide an overview of the recent controversy, highlight initiatives to support copyright compliance in the new environment under universities that have opted out of the Access Copyright interim tariff, and discuss how the roles of many librarians expanded in the aftermath to include copyright expertise. Hidden Treasure link: Uncovering the copyright knowledge that librarians possess, which a recent study suggests is often greater than that held by faculty, and positioning ourselves as “copyright go-to persons” in our institutions.

Value-Added Interests: Promoting Membership Participation
    Thursday May 24, 2012 3:00pm - 4:00pm @ Patterson Hall, Room 300

    In many facets of our professional lives, we are often fraught with the question of “how do I get more people engaged and involved in x, y or z?” Anyone who has served as part of an executive of an association or as a convenor for an interest group knows this question means more than having people present in chairs; without engagement and participation, the value of the association is diminished and its livelihood is put in jeopardy. In this session, current APLA Interest Group Conveners will talk about how to promote value and how to engage the membership.
