Founded in 2009, the Broadway Brewery maintains a vision of cultivation. Our farmers cultivate the land; we cultivate the community. We passionately believe both in the benefit of consuming locally-sourced food and the importance of supporting other local businesses. Our mission is to foster the growth of community through food, drink and public gathering.

Our rotating menu features seasonal, local and humane fare. The family farmers that grow our produce and raise our animals are close to our hearts and stomachs. The owners of the Brewery operate two local farms that provide many ingredients for the menu: Duzan Produce and Terra Bella Farm. In addition, we work with other local purveyors. Your patronage supports the cycle of local exchange in which the Brewery is founded.

Our beer echoes our mission: cultivation and fermentation. Our hand crafted beer combines traditional brewing method, creative approach and sustainable techniques. All our organic spent malt is provided to our local farmers that grow our produce and raise our livestock. These values remain firm in our minds as we expand the reach of our product beyond the restaurant.

KEYNOTE: In Search of Uncommon Wisdom
Join Dr. Larry Johnson, founder of the NMC Horizon Project, in an exploration of the road ahead for learning and its surrounding landscape of educational technology. In the spirit of William Gibson, who famously observed that, “the future is already here; it is just unevenly distributed,” the NMC’s future focus is on where things are going — and we do that by trying to first understand where they are coming from.

What we see unfolding in academic libraries all over the world shares little with how we have thought of in terms of technology, networks, software, and even physical spaces in the past. At the same time, virtually every assumption we have about the use of technology in education — our common wisdom — is based on how we have done things in the past. And as successful as we may have been, our own experience is likely the biggest limit on our future success. We’re used to thinking about technology in ways that are not nearly as pervasive, open, ubiquitous, always on, always near, always connected as users expect on campuses today.

In this changing landscape, we need institutions willing to break the traditional mold. We need uncommon leaders, uncommon libraries, and uncommon systems and processes for making decisions about them. Creativity and vision is more important than ever. We need people at every level that are willing to try new ideas, to take risks, and even to fail on the road to getting it right.

Johnson will address these topics in the context of the evolution of the modern academic library, and detail the significant challenges and shifts in that framework that we must all strive to understand and embrace. Collectively, these challenges will require a tectonic level shift in the common wisdom, but that won’t be enough. We will need uncommon wisdom. Join Dr. Larry Johnson, founder of the NMC Horizon Project, in an exploration of

Data Visualization: Cool Things You Can Do With Borrowing and Lending Statistics
Good data visualization can drive home a point quickly and have lingering impact, or help you see something that you hadn’t noticed before. These days, libraries can’t afford to not be wise and impactful with the data that is collected and conveyed about patrons, services and collections. Do you keep borrowing and lending statistics? Have you ever felt like Excel charts just don’t show the story about interlibrary loan that you would like to tell? Or maybe you’re not sure what to do with all your rows and rows of data, and wonder what it all really means? This presentation will cover visualization possibilities available, and demonstrate interactive, visual stories with interlibrary loan and MOBIUS data using Tableau, as well as discuss other free online data visualization tools.

Fontbonne University began sponsoring student interns in the spring of 2005, and eleven years later we are still benefitting from the challenges and rewards of the program. Join us as we look back (and forward) to get a sense of its evolution. We’ll address a range of practical topics (learning plans, good pedagogy, time management and scheduling, mentoring and supervision) alongside the myriad benefits of the whole experience, including the cultivation of future professional relationships. We’ll also discuss what worked, what hasn’t, and where some of our former students are today. Whether you’re a director thinking about developing a new program at your library, a librarian looking to reinvigorate or strengthen an existing one, or a student wanting to find ways to get the most out your practicum experience, this session has something for everyone!

Acquisitions: Why Paperless Is the Way to Go
Although paper is useful for a number of things, its utility in organizing workflows is generally limited. Electronic submissions and tracking greatly increase efficiencies in acquisitions. It was important for us to be able to track pre-order steps, as not every request is purchased. On the submission side, only accepting electronic requests avoids the issue of illegible handwriting and of a slip becoming misplaced. Librarians can also elect to draw data out of electronic systems and determine what statistics are useful to their own reporting. Going paperless has greatly improved efficiency and accountability over the last 4 years.

Streaming video is a wonderful resource for patrons. Streaming videos can (usually) be watched anywhere at any time by any number of simultaneous viewers. They can be accessed by online students as well as on ground students and they don’t eat up physical space. If only they were just a wee bit easier to deal with from the library side! This session will look at streaming videos from the perspectives of acquisitions, cataloging, access, and technical support. Philosophical questions of ownership vs access and the future of physical film collections will also be discussed.We will look at streaming video providers ranging from large well-known companies such as Swank and Films on Demand to smaller specialized providers such as FITNE, a provider of nursing streaming videos. Cataloging issues include questions such as record loads in a cluster context, full or brief records for titles from vendors not providing MARC records, provider neutral records, and whether to contribute holdings to MOBIUS and/or OCLC, How to make these records more discoverable (especially with a discovery service) will be also be addressed.

KEYNOTE: Resetting the Web’s Information Landscape

Libraries, their collections, and services need to be where their users are – not simply by having Web sites, but by reaching those users were they work daily in services like Web search engines and mobile platforms. Unfortunately, library data is effectively invisible and nearly impossible for these services to use. Transforming library content, service descriptions, locations and event information from MARC and non-MARC formats to Linked Data increases the Web accessibility of library content, extending the library’s reach to immediate customers like students, faculty and researchers, as well as, prospective students/parents, the business community, alumni/donors, and campus administration.

The story of growing library engagement with the Web is told in three parts: 

Act I - Linked Data Essentials – Learn how web searching works and the concepts 
behind Linked Data, then see the difference between machine vs. human consumption 
and explore how linked, structured data is moving the focus of Web searching to 
answers not pages.

Act II – Libraries, Linked Data and the Web – Understand the role of existing library data 
stores, the evolution of standards and introduction of BIBRAME, and review MARC to 
BIBFRAME examples.

Act III – Putting it All Together – Finally, explore how libraries are expanding visibility 
and access to their collections and services on the Web by publishing Linked Data from 
source data in formats like MARC and EAD to the Library.Link Network – a Zepheira 
collaboration with industry partners. 

While Linked Data is simply a technology, understanding its purpose and promise can help 
libraries inform their workflow, management, and strategic planning, in addition to exploring 
new and exciting ways to serve their communities.

Now Open 24/7 (Virtually)
Trends suggest that information seekers, including students, are increasingly online, mobile, and engaging with their work beyond 9-5. As a society we are becoming accustomed to chatting or texting with service providers from Amazon to our local repair man. Virtual reference is one way libraries are trying to ensure information seekers find the help they need when and where they need it. However, many libraries do not have the staffing necessary to support virtual reference services, especially outside of normal business hours. Last year a MOBIUS Task Force investigated potential collaborations that might expand opportunities for MOBIUS members to provide high quality virtual reference services. As a result of their work, MOBIUS brokered a contract with LibraryH3lp and ChatStaff, third party virtual reference providers, at a reduced rate for Missouri Libraries. A member of the task force will share information from their process, including their efforts to explore collaborative reference models. Then, two librarians from Northwest Missouri State University who have implemented LibraryH3lp and ChatStaff at their library, will share what they did, what they should have done, and what they have learned so far. Finally, a MOBIUS representative will end with an opportunity to hear more about how libraries interested in learning more about LibraryH3lp and ChatStaff can get information.

Data-Driven Collection Review
Webster University completes a comprehensive review each year in one of the following areas: print and e-journals, reference collection/standing orders, stacks, and databases. Taking information from Sierra bib, item, order, and checkin records as well as Ebsco and Serials Solutions data, we create reports with quantifiable information, such as usage statistics, last checkin, holdings, overlap analysis, and pricing information to allow all reviewers to have the necessary data to make informed decisions. We will share our procedures and how they have evolved over the years. We will also demonstrate ways to identify and highlight high cost, low usage items when quick, targeted reductions are needed. The comprehensive reviews have helped demonstrate that we are spending money prudently and supporting our users’ needs in this age of assessment and decreasing budgets.

Truman's Responsive Design Catalog
Staff at Truman State University have long been dissatisfied with functioning of the mobile catalog. In Spring 2015 we learned that a few Sierra libraries had redesigned their Webpacs according to "responsive design." "Responsive design" is an approach to web design that intends to make content display and function well on screens of all sizes. In the Fall semester, Truman and MCO worked together to adapt a set of responsive Webpac files originally developed at Dayton University. Just as we were putting the final touches on our design, III released its own example set of responsive Webpac files. This presentation will focus on Truman's responsive catalog, but also look briefly at III's example set.

Managing cynicism, detriment to organizational change: Literature Review
Driven by social, cultural and technological forces, change is an inevitable fact in all dimensions of modern life. Organizations need to evolve and change to be current and competitive, and to meet the needs of their constituents. Managers often initiate and orchestrate change; however, change can be challenging at times, and met with resistance. Employee resistance, while understandable, is a major obstacle to successfully implementing change. There are many responses to organizational change that can lead to resistance. Cynicism is found to be the most detrimental one impacting group dynamics and leading to failure. Cynicism, as a personal or a situational attribution, is negative and detrimental to the organization and can cause failure. It is a prevalent and a growing phenomenon in the American workplace: in 1989, 43 percent, and in 1991, 48 percent of American workers were reported as being cynical. Either as a state or a trait, cynicism consists partly of employees’ voicing mistrust and disbelief in change. Employees who mistrust the motives of others often resist change, which can be fatal to an organization. Managers who contend with employee resistance are advised to take cynicism into account during the implementation of change. In particular, academic libraries are challenged to initiate changes to respond to users’ needs, necessitated by new trends and access capabilities at point-of-need. Change inherently disrupts the status quo, causing resistance, and creates a need for management strategies to minimize resistance.This study is a literature review of the research to initiate a discussion on the topic.

Shaking Up the Curriculum: Leadership lessons learned in developing an action plan for information fluency
Rockhurst University is committed to developing information fluency skills in its students. Greenlease Library wanted to develop strategies to help students acquire information fluency by promoting faculty-librarian collaborations. We discovered that the key to getting people to follow you is to know where you are going. Join Tensy Marcos-Bodker, Research, Learning and Assessment Services Librarian, as she describes her experiences, and the lessons learned, from participation in the ACRL 2015 Immersion Program (Program Track) and the CIC Information Fluency in the Disciplines Workshop (2016). She will describe how these programs led to the development of a comprehensive action plan to create an information fluency program in Rockhurst University’s core curriculum.

Some Assembly Required: Building Social Media Teams and Tools to Maximize User Engagement
Over the past 6 months, the University of Missouri Libraries have doubled user engagement across social media accounts and enhanced presences on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.. We’re reaching more students than ever before through effective use of the platforms and technologies they use every day. What are the keys to our success? A sustainable model featuring a collaborative team structure and a practical, homegrown toolkit: a social media policy, staffing model, marketing campaign templates, and assessment plans that can be adapted to any academic library. This toolkit emerged from a committee charged to draft a social media policy in August 2015. From that starting point, the committee evolved into a working team that engages with library users and consistently provides marketing content across all social media presences.This program will detail our process and explain the decisions we made while creating our team structure, toolkit, and workflow so that other libraries, with or without marketing departments, can replicate our success.

When They Need It, We Have It! Fulfilling Student Article Needs
In Spring Semester 2016, Maryville University Library began a pilot of an unmediated article-pay-per view service. Join us as we describe how we selected the vendors for the project, why we decided to go unmediated, what our patrons are doing with this service, the ways it has impacted ILL, and whether we still think an unmediated service is a better choice for us than a mediated one. We will also discuss how this service fits into our overall article access strategy.We will take an in-depth look at usage data (such as journals from which articles were downloaded, how many downloaded articles could have been accessed at no-charge through our databases, how many duplicate articles were downloaded, times of day and night when patrons downloaded) We will review our other article access services and discuss the pros and cons of article-pay-per-view in comparison to these services.

Building Collaborative Collections: Analysis of eMO
In 2012, MOBIUS invested time and energy to develop a collaborative e-book collection available to members. Now, in its third year of use, we take a detailed look at its success. Participating members have been pleased with the collections available and the content provided; however, a detailed analysis of the usage could cause one to pause. We will discuss the results of the student and how MOBIUS might move forward in continuing to build a collaborative digital collection.
