OPENING KEYNOTE — Hack Libraries: Platforms? Playgrounds? Prototypes?
8:45 AM – 9:45 AM - International Ballroom Center
Dr. David Weinberger, Co-Director Harvard Library Innovation Lab, Harvard University and & Author, Too Big To Know; Everything is Miscellaneous: The Power of the New Digital Disorder, & Co-Author,Cluetrain Manifesto

Weinberger studies the effect of the internet on ideas and their organization, and has written a series of popular books on the topic. He applies those ideas to libraries directly as the co-director of the Harvard Library Innovation Lab, the motto of which is “Hack libraries.” From that Lab has come projects such as Stackview, an innovative visual library browser at use at Harvard and at the Digital Public Library of America, and LibraryCloud, which is an open metadata server being constructed under Weinberger’s leadership as head of the Harvard Library's Interoperability Initiative. The aim of LibraryCloud is, he says, “to make it easier to hack the library via open APIs.” Weinberger argues for transforming libraries into platforms that enable anyone on the planet to use everything that libraries know. “Libraries are probably not going to be the ones that invent their own future,” says Weinberger. “The ideas are likely to come from some kid in a garage. Platforms are how we can get everyone on the planet to help create the future of libraries.” Be inspired by Weinberger’s ideas and big picture perspective. Get new insights to apply to your network and library community. Gather strategies to apply for a successful and engaged future from our thought leader, industry guru, popular author and library strategist.

3:15 PM – 5:00 PM
Chad Mairn, Information Services Librarian, St. Petersburg College
Jenny Brandon, Web Designer/Librarian, Michigan State University Libraries
Rick Bearden, Automation Librarian, Ferris Library for Information, Technology and Education, Ferris State University
Emily R Mitchell, Librarian / Webmaster, SUNY Oswego
Amy Deschenes, Systems & Web Applications Librarian, Beatley Library, Simmons College

This session looks at some new and sometimes overlooked ways of enhancing the library’s web presence and shares new tools, design themes, and applications. Mairn shows how you can revolutionize mobile phones with your floorplan. He describes how places like libraries or campuses can work with Google to get their physical space mapped for indoor guidance with Google Indoor Maps.When someone zooms in on your library building on Google Maps, floorplans automatically appear. In your library, users would have point-by-point navigation via their Android smartphone or tablet (soon on iOS devices too) to reference desks, study rooms, computer labs, etc. Brandon looks at theming in Drupal and illustrates the steps, from the selection of a base theme to those involved in setting up a subtheme, using HTML/CSS to design multiple layouts. MSU Libraries’ chose the Omega base theme, the second-most-installed theme for Drupal CMS. Working with this theme, MUS Libraries’ web team created a responsive design for their academic library website. Bearden and Mitchell describe some of the hurdles they faced to keep their library website accessible, including a battle with Google.With the pace of tech change and job mobility, the old paradigm of solving problems by knowing who to ask is shifting to knowing what to ask. Find out what to ask when you’re faced with ensuring accessibility of link resolvers, authentication systems, proxy services, and other systems essential to libraries. Sharpen up your skills (and your mind) to help keep your library site accessible. Deschenes looks at custom development of a new tool for sharing information about Simmons College library collections and services with patrons and stakeholders. Many libraries are focusing on measurement and assessment and Deschenes used Zoho Creator as a statistics management tool to share library data. She illustrates a lightweight, dynamic online dashboard built to visualize data stored in a Google spreadsheet using Sheetsee.js. Not only will you have a chance to see the dashboard, you’ll get the steps to create one for your library.

C101 – Weathering the Virtual Library
10:00 AM – 10:45 AM
Adriana Edwards-Johnson, Virtual Library Coordinator, Pioneer Library System

On May 19, 20, and 31, 2013, tornadoes tore through central Oklahoma, tearing a path of destruction through urban and rural Cleveland, McClain, and Pottawatomie counties. This three county area is also the service area of the Pioneer Library System. The PLS physical buildings escaped the path of the storms by a matter of blocks. But the PLS services, such as electricity and internet, were impacted for several days after the storms hit. This session looks at the virtual library's immediate response to the storms, steps taken in the following days, and finally what steps were implemented to address future severe weather the system could face.With these lessons and those of your colleagues, spend some time discussing disruption and disaster plans!

C103 – Moving Ideas Forward
1:30 PM – 2:30 PM
John Liebhardt, Head Librarian, NCI Information Services
James Stephens, IT Librarian, UMBC

Computers in Libraries conferences are full of great ideas to help libraries innovate. However, moving ideas to reality is complicated: Librarians must balance strategic priorities, patron needs and (most of all) time constraints. Leveraging theories from the Lean Startup and Agile Development, Liebhardt shows that libraries can build sustainably innovative organizations through constant learning. Rather than writing plans or holding whiteboard sessions, try building a simple, basic product or service and measure if it solves patrons' problems. Once the prototype is in front of people, get customer insights to make adjustments. Liebhardt shares project management tools that show librarians the discipline to be honest about measuring progress, setting up milestones and prioritizing work. Stephens, who was at last year’s CIL, left, like a lot of others did, with a glowing need to use Raspberry Pis in his library. But, when faced with actually doing something practical and getting the library administration on board, he was stumped. He shares some of the ideas he came up with, discusses how he sold the ideas to the higher-ups, and then helps start a discussion of ideas that other attendees have tried—whether they were successes or not! Computers in Libraries is full of cutting-edge ideas, use tips, and tools from speakers and colleagues to help you move them to the real world.

Barbara Tait, Digital Resource Specialist, Free Library of Philadelphia
Nate Stone, Library Program Associate, Community Technology Center, Denver Public Library
Laura Turk, Library Program Associate, Community Technology Center, Denver Public Library
Angela Sigg, Content Developer, Digital User Experience, Denver Public Library

First, hear the experiences and tips from one library which has been offering youth maker programs, from e-fashion to printed circuits, in more than seven locations. Much of the philosophy behind making is mentoring youth in tinkering and experimentation; teaching them that the making process is one of inquiry and the inevitable failed attempts. This library is committed to spreading the gospel of why it’s important to fail, learn, and try again as it is integral to the making and learning process. It sees the library as the ideal comfortable and safe environment to mentor youth as they learn that it’s okay to fail, and a place where they can share their experiences and learnings. Denver PL launched the ideaLAB, a digital media lab for teens, and quickly learned that the traditional instructional model wouldn’t work with 13-year-olds. Staff read about HOMAGO, but what does it look like in practice, and how do you help teens move beyond just hanging out? Come learn from their mistakes: the turn from classes to project cards, creative programming, a badging system, and showcasing teen work. They share experiences and materials, talk about integrating ideaLAB programming into the library’s teen website, and highlight examples of teen work.
