Technical Services SIG Lightning Talks

Please join the Technical Services SIG on Thursday at 3pm for a series of Lightning Talks.

This year’s lineup will include:

EzProxy Config Manager an Open Source Application
Juan Denzer (SUNY Oswego)

The Discovery Services Librarian at SUNY Oswego enlisted the help of two Computer Science students to develop an Open Source application to manage the EzProxy Configuration file. The goal of the application is to help reduce the clutter by organizing the stanzas and options in the file using an easy to use interface. Some key features will include: searching, commenting, views, sorting.

Weighted Allocation Formula

April Davies (SUNY Cobleskill)

April will briefly discuss the library’s new weighted allocation formula for acquisitions, focusing on how the categories were chosen and the data gathered.

One Library’s Experience with Kanopy PDA and Meditated Licensing

Marianne Foley (Buffalo State)

In the fall of 2016, E. H. Butler Library at SUNY Buffalo State began a PDA program to stream Kanopy videos. Usage began slowly, then really picked up. Between June and December 2017, we spent $10,000. After an additional $5,000 was exhausted during Spring 2018, we changed from PDA to mediated licensing. The session will summarize our experience and offer suggestions to other librarians who are considering Kanopy for their library.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone there!
