9:45 AM | Piloting Next Generation Data Services for Libraries

10:45 AM | Achieving the Holy Grail of Electronic Resource Management: Automated Holdings Feed in a Knowledge Base

Libraries face many challenges with maintaining electronic resource holdings that are constantly changing. Learn how content providers, a knowledge base and libraries are working together to ensure accurate and updated knowledge base holdings via institution-specific automated feeds which save library staff a great deal of time and frustration.

3:30 PM | E-Data Quality: How Publishers and Libraries are Working Together to Improve Data Quality

High quality data is essential for the discovery and access of e-resources, but in many cases low quality, inaccurate or missing information leads to low usage and a poor return on library investment dollars.  In this session, find out how libraries, publishers, and knowledge base service providers are working together to improve e-data quality and make your e-content more discoverable by library users.

Two years ago, the E-Data Quality Working Group was formed as a cross-industry committee to understand the root cause of data quality problems in the industry and offer actionable recommendations to improve e-data quality.  Hear from a lively panel of top publishers, leading library service providers and library leaders about best practices for e-data quality improvements, the changes that have been made to improve electronic metadata and holdings information and what they have learned from implementing the recommendations that came from the working group.
