|Called to act: Decolonizing description beyond consultation|
video and slides
The NEOS Decolonizing Description Working Group was established last summer to actualise the work in which the University of Alberta has been engaged for a number of years to develop more respectful subject headings relating to Indigenous peoples and topics. The working group has made significant progress with this work: identifying existing subject headings that need to be evaluated, establishing a process for determining more appropriate terms, creating authority records for our local subject headings, and developing a method to automatically identify existing bibliographic records that require our local subject headings and add them to those records.This presentation updates the NEOS community on our work so far, describes some of the significant decisions we made, and identifies remaining work. It is intended for a general audience.

What are the effective strategies in business library instruction? A systematic review
video and slides
It is unclear what are the most successful library teaching strategies for post-secondary business programs. By conducting a systematic review, this study investigates the effectiveness of library instruction (with a focus on pedagogy) in business undergraduate and graduate programs. Over the past year, the researchers conducted comprehensive searches, screened results, and are currently in the process of data extraction. In their screening, inclusion criteria included any library educational intervention in a business program conducted by librarians or library staff. The quality of included studies is evaluated based on a modified instrument designed to critically appraise educational interventions. The instrument consists of 9 questions that relate to content, context, outcomes, study design, and methods. The researchers will present an overview of their preliminary themes including content coverage, mode of instruction (in-person vs virtual), challenges, assessment strategies, and library educational interventions proven to be effective in teaching business students.

In Fall 2020, Concordia Library ran a pilot project to provide library ebook access to textbooks when we could purchase them through library vendors. We went through course syllabi to identify textbooks, purchased ebooks when they were available, and provided links to owned and subscribed ebooks to instructors to share with their classes. Hear about the process, triumphs, and struggles.

Assessing library site value and client satisfaction during a global pandemic
video and slides
AHS’s Knowledge Resource Service sought to understand the use and value of its 6 geographically dispersed libraries, to inform future strategic planning. Under normal circumstances, gate counts and exit interviews would be used to gather information from library users regarding their satisfaction with the library space and offerings, however this was not possible during temporary Covid-19 closures. Library leadership was challenged to evaluate libraries and gain client perspectives while working from home. A unique assessment methodology was devised: virtual, one-on-one interviews between library staff and known users of each library, using a set of pre-prepared questions to guide the conversation. The questions focused on usage, satisfaction, barriers, perceived value, and ideas for future development. Each interview was manually recorded, entered into a spreadsheet, and then coded with descriptive tags and broader themes, to assess and compare the results. Two outputs were then produced – a system-wide overview summary, and a more granular, site-by-site summary. This allowed for broad conclusions as well as differentiation of issues between sites.The process was generally successful to gauge client satisfaction and perspectives, despite known limitations, and allowed strategic planning initiatives to continue, even in the midst of a global pandemic and temporary library closures.

Library guide assessment: an in-depth look at science, engineering and business subject guides
video and slides
Library guides are widely used to organize and share information. At the University of Alberta, subject librarians use library guides to create subject area guides, topical guides and course-specific guides. These guides are a common tool, but how helpful are they to our users? How often are they used? Do they provide a good user experience? Are there more effective ways to provide our users with subject-specific information and resources? To answer these questions, this research project will assess subject guides for Science, Engineering and Business using a mixed-methods approach. For the first phase of our research, we performed an in depth analysis of selected library guides using quantitative data from Libguide statistics and Google Analytics. This presentation shares how we performed our assessment and what insights were gained. We also describe plans for the qualitative assessment to follow.

Using the Internet Archive: To Find Things, to Store Things and to Digitize / The Internet Archive: What, Why and How?
In this presentation about the Internet Archive we explore what kinds of resources are available in the Internet Archive and talk about how libraries might want to use it as a repository or for digitization.

Teaching them to fish: A structured consultation scheme for teaching synthesis review searching for graduate students in nursing
video and slides
In 2020, the demand for librarian support for synthesis reviews exploded as human-subject research was suspended at post-secondary institutions due to the pandemic. Many requests for mediated search support came from graduate students completing their thesis or dissertation work. Increasing demand necessitated prioritization of mediated searching services and the result was creating a consultation model specifically for graduate students requesting mediated search support. The aim was to improve students’ confidence and self-sufficiency with advanced searching with only 2-3 hours of consultation with a librarian.

|The book vault – The story of a prison library|
just slides not video
Five years ago, the NorQuest library at the Fort Saskatchewan Correctional Centre was comprised of a couple of magazine racks of battered books. Today, The Book Vault, aptly named by our students, is a bright and sunlit space decorated with student art, plants, and cozy chairs. All 3000 books in the Book Vault have been catalogued using Libib - a cloud-based software program. They are organized and are easily searchable. Being cloud-based, the library catalogue is available from anywhere, easily allowing instructors to access the collection and reserve and record circulation of books for students. In addition to the space itself and cataloguing, the Book Vault has a full set of laptops in which students can listen to audio books, or complete class assignments. It provides legal resource material along with a Case Law request system. As well the library has grown to service NorQuest students at the Edmonton Remand Centre by way of the Traveling Book Vault. And in March will see the first issue of a student lead newspaper published. This lightening talk will explore how this correctional library has found success over the past five years, and where it plans to go from here.

Pandemic sharing: How COVID-19 helped us demonstrate the value of collaboration
video and slides
Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, NEOS libraries suddenly had to work out how to serve their clients in a radically changed world, and during reopening stages, and then the second and third waves, they had to adapt rapidly again. Via the NEOS Access Services Committee, creative ILS configurations were developed, and solutions found to reduce anxiety for clients. Unusually for libraries during the pandemic, NEOS libraries were able to provide access to physical collections to clients across the consortium, as well as to post-secondary students from beyond NEOS who were living far from their institutions. During the pandemic the committee used the collaborative power of NEOS to minimize their clients’ pandemic stress and maximize consortial value.

|Demand-driven acquisition: It’s not new, it’s flexible, and it works!|
video and slides
NEOS libraries have been using Demand-Driven Acquisition (DDA) as part of their collections development strategy for over a decade. DDA has moved well beyond a pilot project to being a mature, stable approach to collecting ebooks. Collections librarians from the University of Alberta and MacEwan University talk about different approaches to DDA in their libraries, highlighting pandemic and budget-driven strategies and changes.
