From the Ground up: Building a Digital Strategy for a New Library
Elisa Lanzi, Tristan Chambers
Smith College, United States of America
How do you meet the challenge to design a new library building and develop a digital library - all at the same time? Reimagining physical spaces provides a unique opportunity to infuse user-centered thinking into our daily brew. We learned to dispel magical thinking when developing systems with collaborators and vendors.
The Look and Feel of a Diverse Team
Carol Kassel
NYU Libraries, United States of America
My department is a diverse organization. Why is diversity important? Diversity literature lists benefits including a more productive workforce that serves the community better. In this presentation, I will discuss how the literature relates to our experience, and the benefits we see inside our team and in our work.

Data Science in Libraries is an IMLS funded National Forum that convened a workshop in May of 2017. Drawing on the expertise of participants, the project is authoring a report and laying out a roadmap to integrate data science in libraries. This presentation introduces preliminary recommendations from the project’s report.
Desiging a Studio for the METRO Community
Molly Schwartz

METRO has built a studio that includes an audio recording station, an AV media transfer rack, an imaging and digitization station, a digital forensics station, and a vinyl cutter. This presentation will give a brief summary of the design process and lessons learned.
First Things First: Conducting an Environmental Scan

The Ohio State University, United States of America
This presentation will demonstrate the process for developing and conducting a DH environmental scan customized for an institution’s unique culture. It outlines the strategies used to identify the key constituents on campus and in the libraries; interview and survey key constituents; discover available resources; and determine gaps in support/resources.
