Abstract

By the start of the 2014 CARL Conference, the re-booted CARL IT will have just passed it’s two year mark of re-existence. This showcase will discuss the steps taken to bring about the re-boot and present some of what was accomplished. The presenters will discuss the challenges and the highlights of the past two years. A possible roadmap for the future of this IG and plans for new activities will also be laid out. The session will conclude with an open forum with opportunities for attendees to help the IG steering committee complete (or rewrite) the IG roadmap and future plans.

Description

The primary objective of the CARL IT interest group is to create a space where library colleagues may interact and exchange ideas on the uses of technology.  To achieve this outcome, the steering committee has sought to engage membership by offering a variety of virtualized social gathering spots. Each gathering spot aimed to draw an audience by creating a common set of topics for discussion and sharing of knowledge. To date, the committee has been most successful in doing so through a webinar series known as CARL IT On Air.  On Air brings together technology leaders  throughout California to share their knowledge with others, hopefully helping other participants formulate their own projects and services. Informally sharing IT related projects allows IG members to connect with others, gather feedback, and share important information faster than traditional publishing mechanisms.

Our campus IT service recently put up a web page showing in real time the number of available computers in various labs around campus. However, their display didn’t show users where the available stations were located within a facility. This presentation describes the process for taking raw availability data in JSON format, converting it using PHP and XML, and using CSS to display the exact locations of available computers in the library overlaid on simple floor maps viewable on mobile devices.

Checking-in Versus Checking-out: using location-based social networking

Danielle Kane, Research Librarian for Emerging Technologies and Service Innovation @ UC Irvine
March 25, 2013 @ 12:30 PM
Services like Foursquare are location-based social networking websites for mobile devices. Users “check in” at venues and offer tips or reviews about the location.  Check-ins can award user points, sometimes “badges”, and even “Mayorships” for a location.  This session will cover how to claim/create sites in Foursquare and Yelp, how to manage the site, statistics provided and some ideas for how to use these services with your library patrons.

Visual Bookmarking with Pinterest

In case you missed it, here is Danielle’s presentation on Pinterest.

Pinterest is similar to earlier image and social bookmarking tools, allowing users to save images and then categorize them on different boards. Users can follow other pinners boards, re-pin pins and like pins. The number of libraries using Pinterest is growing, this short presentation will cover what is Pinterest and how your library might use it to promote services and collections.

Web Analytics: what we’re using and how…
At California State University San Marcos (CSUSM), the Library is using a combination of web analytic packages to assess our website and online services. In this presentation, I will talk about the applications we use and show how the data has helped us.
