Camp ER&L will offer librarians that camp-like feel of coming together to meet new people, play games and learn new skills in a virtual way.

While you are enjoying camp, check out the EBSCO and GOBI® virtual booths, where you can speak with EBSCO representatives about the latest updates to our products and services.

Inclusive Search: Discovery That Understands – 10:00 – 11:30 AM CT
To be inclusive, a discovery service must allow people from diverse backgrounds to search in their own words. This presentation, hosted by EBSCO Senior Training Manager Lis Jones and Christina Beis from University of Dayton, will focus on how a discovery service can deliver expert-level results to everyone.

The Analytics of Value: Leveraging Data to Show Library Success – 12:00 – 1:30 PM CT
Libraries have always been under pressure to demonstrate value, efficiency and their contribution to the success of the institution. Studies have correlated library usage and improved academic outcomes but are usually ad-hoc, with challenges identifying, collecting, and preserving data. Hear from librarians, Michael Levine-Clark from University of Denver, Marianne Watson of Villanova University and Caroline Gauld of University of Melbourne, who helped develop a new analytics platform.

"Orange You Glad I Didn't Say Banana? UI Design Innovations for Discovery that Counter Expectations But Increase Search Effectiveness for Diverse Users" – 2:00 – 3:30 PM CT
Advances in the study of how people navigate discovery services have recognized that diverse users come to UIs with diverse ways of thinking. Hear from EBSCO’s Alissa Golden and Christina Beis from the University of Dayton on how this has spurred experimentation with visual ways of presenting subject search as an equitable, inclusive approach to research.

March 17th
