Registration Instructions - On Demand Viewing

  • Pay with credit card (visa or mastercard), or choose offline for check/wire transfer payments.
  • Do not log in if prompted.
  • Check your contact information before submitting the registration.
  • Attendees can register to view the recording of the presentations via on demand.
  • On demand registrations received after 10:00 am eastern on the day of the event will be processed on a weekly basis, so please note there will be slight delay in the response. Once processed, a link will be sent in order to view the recording on demand.
  • Each session contains multiple presentations and will cost $25 per attendee. The $25 registration fee is per session per attendee for the live session and/or on demand recording.  Currently, there are no volume or bulk discounts for ELUNA Learns.  The registration and on-demand link are registered to each individual participant's email address.  ELUNA is committed to keeping the cost for our educational events affordable, especially in these budget-challenged times.  In order to provide quality member-based programming, we ask that individuals register for each of the events that are relevant to their work. Sharing login information for group-viewing sessions undermines the ELUNA's ability to provide this programming. If you value this program and the community that provides this content, either via the face to face meeting or online, please register for each session you will attend with your email account.

Digital Initiatives

On Demand Viewing:

  • Welcome
  • Utilizing Natural Language in the Library
  • Digital Collection Data Across the Discovery Landscape
  • Preserving Digital Content over Time

Utilizing Natural Language in the Library. Greg Davis, Iowa State University; Mike Rossetti, myLIBRO.

Iowa State University and University of Iowa partnered with ConverSight.ai Libro (now myLIBRO) in 2019 to develop a platform that would allow students and staff to search their Ex Libris ILS, events systems and FAQs through natural language conversation with their mobile devices and smart speakers. Following search, students are able to reserve materials and/or space for events, learn about library hours, policies and more, and interact with the library in this tech-savvy way. Due to the voice integration, sight-impaired students and those who have difficulty with screens are able to interact with the library like never before. This year, myLIBRO rolled out advanced functionality to improve search, add scheduling features for curbside/contactless pick-up & in-library services and more. In this session, we'll discuss how libraries are using this technology to emerge from COVID-19 with stronger digital offerings than ever before.

Digital Collection Data Across the Discovery Landscape. Margaret Heller, Loyola University Chicago; Greer Martin, Loyola University Chicago

Library digital collections data lives in many different systems and is created using varying standards and practices. Bringing these heterogeneous digital collections into Alma and Primo requires leveraging options and workflows throughout the digital repository landscape. This presentation will consider and outline various options for how to efficiently house, harvest, edit, and discover digital collections data between Digital Commons, Preservica, Springshare, and Alma/Primo. It will focus on how these practices will change with our upcoming migration from Back Office to Primo VE, and the different data harvest and display options available for digital repository systems outside of the Ex Libris ecosystem.

Preserving Digital Content over Time. Teresa Soleau, J Paul Getty Trust; Dave Allen, State Library of Queensland, Australia.

This presentation will discuss the importance of providing long-term access to selected digital content, understanding how to manage your digital resources, and describe how to use Rosetta software to manage file formats, digital storage, obsolescence risks, metadata, and to avoid changes to digital files. Long-term management and access is important for everyone working with digital materials to understand, not only the importance of digital preservation, but how to implement a program within your organization. The presentation will look at six fundamental topics of preserving digital objects: 1.) Identify the types of digital content you have and select the digital content you want to be accessible long-term. 2.) Use standard methods for managing long term file metadata 3.) Store your digital content securely 4.) Protect your content from everyday threats (changes, obsolescence, loss, etc.) 5.) Create a preservation plan for long term management. 6.) Provide access to digital content over time.
