Downtown/uptown (dual campus) subject librarians at University of Central Florida Libraries (BarbaraTierney, Corinne Bishop) --- 

A new subject librarian model is being rolled out at the University of Central Florida whereby several subject librarians divide their time between two campuses. Five librarians now travel to the new downtown Orlando campus https://www.ucf.edu/downtown/ to provide library support for their assigned programs and constituencies that have relocated to the new campus, while also maintaining support for other assigned programs and constituencies that remain at main campus.

To reassure faculty and students transferred to the downtown campus that they still have library support, a special newsletter distributed to downtown constituencies states “although your subject librarians may remain based at the main campus, they will travel downtown to meet with you and your classes as needed and are also available online. Please contact them for library instruction, research assistance, one-on-one consultations, program reviews, and collection development via https://library.ucf.edu/services/services-for-faculty/ “

What are one subject librarian’s reflections on how the dual campus model impacts her? Dr. Corinne Bishop, social sciences subject librarian, now supports constituencies on two campuses. She works with library acquisitions, cataloging, and her downtown faculty to select books and other resources that should be moved to or ordered for the downtown library.

While maintaining her office at main campus, Dr. Bishop makes optimum use of downtown campus shared librarian offices and instruction/consultation rooms. She embeds herself in the Canvas learning management system of the courses she supports, and uses software such as Zoom and Skype to provide instruction sessions, workshops, and consultations to her constituencies wherever they, or she, is located.

UCF’s Head of RIS and the Social Sciences Subject Librarian will answer questions about the pros and cons of such a dual campus model as it relates to the institutions of program attendees. After participating in this program, attendees will be able to develop strategies to support similar situations at their own institutions.

Data Management and Visualization Lesson Plan for Graduate Students (Mary Ellen Sloane) ---
Libraries are finding the graduate students in all disciplines are facing increased need to better understand data science, data management, and data visualization. This often involves learning new software and new research methodologies.

At MTSU we have been offering a workshop series to graduate students for several years. The past year we added a workshop on data management and visualization to the series. This session will share an overview of the lesson plan and discuss other resources for developing lesson plans on data management and visualization for students. An emphasis will be placed on library resources and software training available that will be used by students in their research.

Attendees will come away with some strategies for helping graduate students navigate the steep learning curve of data management and visualization in all disciplines. The presenter will solicit feedback about the lesson plan in order to develop ideas for improvement.

You Can’t Have It All, Where Would You Put It?: Locating the Many Things in Shared Retention --- (Rebecca Crist)
As meta-collaborations of shared print programs begin to look at the collective shared, retained collection, we are increasingly interested in finding WHERE retained items are located. This presentation will attempt to parse the membership of serials-oriented shared print programs to determine who participates in these programs and where items are actually located in retention, with a goal of identifying the broad range of institution types and sizes participating in shared print programs—and figuring out which institutions are left holding the literal "many things" we have committed. Looking at the multiple regions of the US, are journals largely being held at large state universities, or is the burden—and opportunity—shared among many? Which regions stand out for their commitments? This brief look at research currently in progress will seek to answer the question, Where are we putting all our things?

ADBU - Sketching French academic libraries landscape: a Student focus ---- (Cécile Swiatek)
What do French collections, services, spaces look like? Presenting and analyzing national and local trends enables us to see what the strategies at work are and how French academic libraries serving students evolved during the last 10 years.
National key indicators compared to a european academic libraries KPI benchmark : As we are facing research evolutions and teaching/learning new models, a strong increase in students’ number is observed everywhere in Europe. This trend will most probably continue in the coming years and the pressure on academic libraries will grow. That is why the French academic libraries directors association (ADBU) took the initiative to launch a European comparative study on Key Performance Indicators in Academic Libraries over the 2013-2016 period, with a 2017 update.

E Pluribus Bibliothecam: Reforming Monograph Acquisitions through Data, Training, and Teamwork (Adam Beauchamp) ---

Responding to feedback from our faculty and data about our acquisitions patterns over the past three years, the FSU Libraries decided to change our approach to monograph acquisitions from a decentralized, primarily subject librarian-driven firm order model to a coordinated program that emphasizes automated purchasing. Our goals were to reduce librarians’ time and labor spent on title-by-title selecting, increase collection consistency and fill gaps in core subject matter frequently missed in slip notifications, and help manage the expectations of our users. This session will describe how we navigated this transition from decentralized selecting to a coherent monograph acquisitions program .

Attendees will learn about:
-- the formation of a coordinating committee to provide leadership; 
-- methods for analyzing our community’s monograph use in ways that could be directly applied to our book vendor's approval profiles (GOBI); and 
-- how we provided training to our subject librarians on how to interpret the data analytics, create a collection development strategy in their subject areas, and work collaboratively to build a coherent collection that meets the disciplinary and interdisciplinary needs of our students and faculty. 
Attendees will also receive the Excel template and formulas we used to analyze monograph usage should they wish to replicate our assessment method.
