    Using Data and Analytics in Access Services to Direct Change for Sustainable Services
    ( 2017-10-27) Thoulag, Jean ; Allen, Fred ; Bowman, David
    Libraries routinely collect all kinds of data about access and circulation services — gate counts, circulation counts, overdue books, fines paid, missing and lost books, room reservations, desk service interactions, etc. How can this data be retrieved, analyzed, and used to inform and direct changes for improved and sustainable services? This presentation shares practical experiences in using a library’s data and reports to pose questions about access and circulation services. What questions should we consider asking? What can data tell us about our service and work? What kind of reports can we request and how do we get the information and reports? Although the experiences shared are from an academic library setting, the presenters will share how topics and methods can be adapted to other library settings.

    Toddler Time and Beyond: Creating Programs for Our Youngest Patrons
    ( 2017-10-28) Todd, Danielle
    Programs specifically designed for infants and toddlers based on the early literacy research of Every Child Ready to Read (ECRR2) are a growing trend in public libraries. Research shows that the five principles of ECRR2 (talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing) greatly increase children’s pre-reading and school readiness skills. With the library’s already hectic programming schedule, incorporating ECRR2 can seem like a daunting task. Between staffing shortages, limited budgets, and the intimidation factor of working with infants, where do you start?

    ( 2017-10-27) Healey, Meri ; Scheffer, Rebekah
    The Marine Corps Base Hawaiʻi Library circulates a wide range of items in addition to traditional media items, from robots and Raspberry Pis to specialty cake pans and jewelry making kits.

Participants will walk away with enhanced understanding of the variety of items that libraries can circulate, innovative ways to promote and justify circulating non-traditional items, and best practices for managing non-traditional collections.

    ( 2017-10-28) Kurahara, Jane

These free resources include curriculum units, resource folders, videos, and more. Exchange ideas about the best ways to use these resources and suggest ways to increase access to these materials.

    Sustainable Curriculum: Teaching Digital Literacy Through Movie-Making
    ( 2017-10-28) Oshiro, Laurel
    Digital storytelling is an essential skill for every student to have. From conducting online research to collaboration to production, students learn how to effectively utilize technology so they are more than just consumers of information and become producers. Uploading content to social media has never been easier but, as school library media specialists, we play a vital role in educating students on how to effectively and ethically use technology to make the world a better place. I will be teaching you how to use movie-making as an effective method for promoting digital literacy.

    Sustaining School Libraries Through Curriculum Sharing
    ( 2017-10-28) Garud, Meera
    With so much to do each day, it can be challenging for school librarians to develop a year-long library curriculum alone. However, there is so much we can learn and offer one another here in Hawaiʻi. I will share initial findings from comparing library curricula across Department of Education schools and introduce ideas for a searchable library lesson plan database. This session aims to revitalize veteran school librarians to share their knowledge and give hope to new school librarians.

    Sustaining Digital Cultural Heritage Through Culturally Responsive Content Management
    ( 2017-10-27) Holton, Gary
    Join us for a fun and informative session exploring options for sustaining digital cultural heritage. We will describe a number of content management options, focusing on the Mukurtu CMS, a free content management software that allows communities to preserve, share, manage, license, and curate their digital heritage and stories. Mukurtu promotes a community approach to digital heritage management and preservation, integrating already established social and cultural systems with technological tools. In this session, participants will get hands-on experience with Mukurtu CMS, including: 1) basic site set up 2) core features, and 3) procedures to curate digital heritage items with Mukurtu CMS. Participants will see examples of Mukurtu in use in communities emphasizing sustainable preservation strategies, cultural protocols, and the use of traditional knowledge labels. Participants will also be introduced to the IMLS-funded Kaipumakani Project, which is providing resources and support for digital cultural heritage preservation in Hawaiʻi and the Pacific.
