Presentations
 
Efficient and Reliable Access to Authorities with Contextual Lookup
E. Lynette Rayle(1), David A. Eichmann(2), Huda Khan(1), Simeon Warner(1), Dean B. Krafft(1)
1: Cornell University, United States of America; 2: University of Iowa, United States of America
 
Working with external authorities directly opens us up to challenges of network overload and down time that is outside of our control. We will explore end-to-end solutions including local server caching of authority linked data, middleware normalization, and contextual lookup UIs for cataloging and institutional repositories.
 
 
Building a customized bento-box search experience with QuickSearch
Nushrat Khan, Kevin Beswick
North Carolina State University, United States of America
 
QuickSearch is an open source, Ruby on Rails based toolkit released by the NCSU Libraries for easily creating bento-box style search applications. We will talk about new improved features, projects using the core code, including recently migrated Special Collections search interface and how to use and contribute to the project.
 
 
Microdata in the IR: Enhancing Discovery of Institutional Repository Materials in Google
Shayna Pekala
Georgetown University, United States of America
 
Learn how Georgetown University Library implemented microdata in its DSpace institutional repository, DigitalGeorgetown, to enhance the discovery of materials in Google search results. The presenter will discuss Google’s requirements for structured data, how to implement microdata in an institutional repository, and methods for assessing impact.
 
 
PAL: Toward An Automated Recommendation Tool for Archives and Special Collections
Scott Ziegler
American Philosophical Society, United States of America
 
The APS Library is using circulation data to automate recommendations. Recommendations are offered in two ways: based on interests (“You’re interested in X, researchers interested in X looked at these other collections”) and on specific requests (“You’ve looked at Y, researchers who looked at Y also looked that these collections”).
 
 
"Open the digital library doors, HAL.": Voice User Interface (VUI) & Conversational Onboarding Patterns for Digital Collections
Jason A. Clark
Montana State University, United States of America
 
What if we could only talk to our digital library interfaces? We’ll consider how voice user interface (VUI) models impact design, software architectures, and metadata for digital collections using an MSU Library digital collection fitted with a simple VUI prototype (https://github.com/jasonclark/voice-user-interface).
