C30. Renovating a Community College Library for the 21st Century Learner
Location: Library 0012, Lower Level

Sarah Conrad Weisman, Amy Dibble & Erin Wilburn, Corning Community College, SUNY
In 2014, the CCC Library underwent a gut renovation and expansion, its first renovation since it was built in 1964. We will discuss the project planning process, collaborating with campus constituents, architects and contractors, moving and storing the book collection, projecting out shelving and display needs, operating a temporary library, and more. We will share positive experiences, trials and tribulations, and lessons learned throughout.

C31. Creating Digital Projects: A collaborative approach
Location: Library 1004D, First Floor

Mike Magilligan & Michelle Currier, Canton State University of New York
In this presentation Canton Librarians will discuss their collaborations with faculty in designing engaging classroom projects that challenges students to create original digital content in both poem and music. Utilizing their mobile iPad classroom program, Canton Librarians have paved a new path of teaching digital literacy skills in the graphic arts and humanities disciplines that transcend the traditional model. This interactive workshop will allow for attendees to learn some of the iPad applications that facilitate this interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning.

C32. SUNY Information Literacy Portal: Sharing locally created and curate content across institutions
Location: Library 0001, Lower Level

Logan Rath, The College at Brockport, SUNY; Jessica Clemons, College of Environmental Science and Forestry, SUNY; Katie DeRusso, SUNY Cobleskill; Carleen Huxley, Jefferson Comunity College, SUNY & Alice Wilson, Monroe Community College, SUNY
When OPEN SUNY was announced, librarians from around the state met to discuss how to support teaching and learning in an online environment. As a result of that meeting, a group was formed to work on organizing peer-reviewed information literacy content that could be reused and redistributed at all SUNY institutions. Funded by in IITG in 2014, this presentation will demonstrate the power of SUNY library systems and how we support synchronous and asynchronous learning environments.

C33. Partners in Teaching and Learning: Peer research tutors in the library and across campus  | Handouts 1 2 3 4
Location: Library 1014, First Floor

Glynis Asu & Lisa Forrest, Hamilton College
Students can play a unique role in the development of information literacy skills among their peers. Hamilton College’s Peer Research Tutor program, established in the fall of 2014, provides peer-to-peer information literacy support reaching far beyond the walls of the library. Serving as “first-tier” support at the desk, Research Tutors also develop and deliver information literacy workshops, create new bridges between their fellow peers and liaison librarians, and serve as information literacy ambassadors across campus. Learn how to establish your own Research Tutor program, and hear about the challenges and surprises we’ve discovered along the way!

C34. Introducing Scopus Across the SUNY System
Location: Library 0002, Lower Level

Joseph Krongold, Elsevier 
SUNY has recently reached an agreement to provide system-wide access to Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer reviewed literature. Scopus is a valuable resource for students, faculties and administrators. This session will cover some of the key features of Scopus, the plan to roll out Scopus across the system and the different ways in which Scopus can be of value to the diverse institutions that make up SUNY.

C35. One Bib to Rule Them All-Phase 2 or 57 to 1: What are the Odds?  |  Handout 1  |  Handout 2
Location: Student Services Building, Red Room

Maureen Zajkowski & Maggie Horn, SUNY OLIS
At the June 2014 SUNYLA Conference, representatives from the Shared Catalog and Authorities Task Force, and the OLIS reported on work done in support of developing a test environment for the SUNY One Bib/Shared Catalog Proof of Concept (POC). Fall 2014 was the target date to begin data migration for this project. The work done in fall 2014, referred to as “Phase 1” of the POC, involved the loading of OCLC master records and the merging of data associated with 12 POC campuses. While there is still testing underway and more functionality that has not yet been addressed, there has been success on the activities that have been completed. Starting in January 2015 the OLIS and ITEC began planning “Phase 2” of the POC to merge data from all 57 campuses. Come join us as we share the challenges of this process, what we are learning, and impacts this will have if we move forward with this project to production.

C36. Fulfilling Unmet Research Needs: Journal Use in BrowZine
Location: Library 0014, Lower Level
Ted Tyson, BrowZine
Browsing and reading journals has historically been equally important to the research process as searching for and retrieving articles. In the digital age, however, nearly all library services have focused entirely on search. Please join us to learn how hundreds of academic libraries are using BrowZine to reclaim the browsing experience and in doing so, providing an entirely new way for patrons to find, use and stay current with the library’s e-journals. In this session, you will see a live demonstration of BrowZine, learn why researchers find it an indispensable service, and get a first look at upcoming initiatives, including BrowZine for the web.
