1. Library Publishing is the New Black
William Kane

Session will illustrate (via slides and facts) how library publishing has changed everything, including how: Library Publishing Coalition is the new Book Expo America, one dollar is the new free, post is the new print, streaming is the new downloading, share is the new send, collaborate is the new control, articles are the new books, charticles are the new articles, devices are the new shelves, bookstores are the new libraries, libraries are the new bookstores, borrowing is the new buying, buying is the new borrowing, billion is the new million, flops are the new bestsellers, commissions are the new advances, "you can judge a book by its cover” is the new “you can’t judge a book by its cover.” “50 Shades of Grey” is the new “Bible,” print-on-demand is the new traditional, libraries are the new platforms, recording is the new publishing, content creators are the new cicadas, links are the new footnotes, and you’re welcome is the new thank you. 

2. Ebooks, Community Management, and the Future(s) of the Global Open Knowledgebase
Kristen Wilson, Jennifer  Solomon

The Global Open Knowledgebase (GOKb) is an open data repository that describes electronic journals and books as they are offered in the academic publishing supply chain. The data in GOKb is freely available to libraries, academic publishers, library service providers, and the public using a web-based interface and APIs. By employing a community management approach to data curation, GOKb aims to maximize the network effect and enable users to contribute to the quality of its knowledgebase data. 

In January 2015, GOKb launched a public preview of its services and announced that the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation would fund the project for a second phase of development, which includes enhancements to the web-based interface and APIs, the addition ebooks in the knowledgebase,  and an exploration of GOKb’s intersections within the scholarly communications ecosystem.

This presentation will describe the goals and purpose of GOKb, provide a brief project update, and explore how Phase 2 developments will influence the long-term vision for the project. The presenter will discuss the challenges, successes, and lessons learned from each facet of the project. Attendees will also learn about next steps for GOKb and opportunities for community involvement. 

3. Does Stow It = Throw It? Shared Print Repositories, Deselection, and Disposal
Rebecca Crist 

Libraries participate in shared print retention programs for a number of reasons—a commitment to preservation or a desire to maximize resources efficiently—but there is little doubt that many libraries collaborate on print retention to free up local shelf space. Free space requires weeding duplicated volumes, however, and some libraries are finding that option is not as simple as it first seemed. This session will explore issues surrounding weeding and withdrawal related to participation in a shared print program. How do programs communicate retained titles? How reliable are storage commitments? How do overlapping commitments and multiple resource-sharing networks foster or hinder withdrawal? What are the costs and labor associated with deselecting local resources? Participants will learn how the CIC’s Shared Print Repository participants handle these issues, and how these efforts fit into a national landscape of retention commitments. 

4. Data Visualization for Scholarly Communications
Andrea Michalek

In a world where the pace of scholarly communications and amount of data is rapidly increasing, using technology to make sense out of all of the data is paramount.
This shotgun session will cover:- Categories of data that can be mined around scholarly output- Data visualization approaches for representing the output of a university, grant, department, researcher, and each artifact produced- Pros and cons of different data visualization approaches- Real world examples of how these visualizations are being used
