Submission Status: Complete
Presenter(s)
Susan A. Ariew
Academic Services Librarian for Education
University of South Florida
Role: Presenter
Qualifications
I have been a faculty member at the USF Tampa Library since January of 2005. Before that, I came from Virginia Tech where I
worked as the College Librarian for Education & Human Development. I spent much of my professional life as an academic
librarian, first at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, at the Center for Research Libraries in Chicago, and then at
Virginia Tech. I have also spent several years teaching English, writing, and composition at the high school and collegiate levels.
My research
and publication interests include academic libraries' use of open access videos, academic librarians' status, collaborative
relationships between librarians and academic faculty, diversity resources for teachers, and assessment tools for evaluating
library instruction and student learning. Currently I am conducting research with Dr. van Ingen about the research process and
preservice teachers. We hope to learn more about how to connect research to practice for classroom teachers. For a list of my
publications and presentations see: http://works.bepress.com/susan_ariew/
Sarah van Ingen
Assistant Professor
University of South Florida
Role: Presenter
Qualifications
Dr. van Ingen is an assistant professor at the University of South Florida. She teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in
mathematics education. Dr. van Ingen’s research agenda lies at the intersection of mathematics education and teacher
preparation. Her work is defined by a commitment to prepare and support teachers to facilitate equitable mathematics learning
environments. Within the context of an award winning school-university partnership, she is engaged in research on how to
prepare teachers to leverage research and other forms of knowledge to meet the mathematics learning needs of all children.

Page 2 of 2
Preliminary program/institute/preconference description:
Assisting students in articulating what library scientists call an “information need” is a complex, iterative process, and one that often
takes the student through several stages. Co-presenters of this program will present findings from a study focused on building student
metacognition of the recursive process of exploring topics, managing them, and creating research-guiding questions that change as
they interact with academic resources. Presenters will offer specific intervention strategies that build students' capacity for productive
research.
Please comment on the timeliness of the proposed program topic.
Theoretical material presented on information need has not been fully understood in practice, given what we now know and
understand about metacognition and brain-based learning. Findings from our study illustrate what the stages of formulating an
information need look like in practice and point the way to new interventions. We hope to bring new perspective to an age-old
problem that takes place at the reference desk and in the classroom every day.
Target audience:
Academic reference and instruction librarians would be most interested in this program.

AFL-CIO/ALA Labor Committee
Preliminary program/institute/preconference description:
A century after the first library workers union was founded, library workers continue to work within labor unions to improve wages
and working conditions. Unions also advocate on behalf of library employers, coordinating campaigns with library administrations to
protect and increase funding and awareness.
Speakers will highlight examples of labor-management collaborations for library advocacy, service enhancements, and share
strategies and outline legal protections for those looking to form a union and organize through social media.
Please comment on the timeliness of the proposed program topic.
Recent court cases on the use of social media to organize a union will be reviewed and discussed--this is a gray area for many workers
who may not know their rights in the workplace. Also, unions have been partnering with libraries to keep libraries staffed and funded.
We will highlight some of those examples and educate attendees on how unions can be a source of support for ballot initiatives that
fund libraries as well as how unions can help hold politicians accountable.
Target audience:
All library workers.

Specifically, RSS' Education and Professional Development for Reference Committee. We are co-sponsoring this with ALISE's
Curriculum Special Interest group.
Preliminary program/institute/preconference description:
We propose a panel of two library science educators and two reference practitioners who hire reference staff. A moderator will pose
questions to the panelists and to the audience. The questions will be related to the following general topics:
· Which skills are most needed to help patrons in today's information ecosystem.
· What changes should be made to how students are being prepared to help patrons find information.
· The factors influencing how decisions about reference curriculum are currently made.
Please comment on the timeliness of the proposed program topic.
This program is topically similar to a series of discussion forums sponsored by RSS' Education and Professional Development for
Reference Committee at Annual 2014 and Midwinter 2015 and upcoming at Annual 2015. Those forums were focused on
engendering discussion of what preparation library schools should be providing for reference practitioners. The panel we are
proposing here will expand on the themes that emerged during those discussions. The panel will bring together LIS reference

Preliminary program/institute/preconference description:
Use benchmarking strategies and engage with your peer and aspirant institutions to create a tailored assessment of your library's stand
alone, non-curricular academic workshops. Conducted to address a gap in current scholarship, this IRB certified study at the
Univesity of South Florida offers insight into practical questions related to the time and staff academic libraries invest in developing,
promoting, teaching, and assessing workshop programs. Are workshops worth the effort? Join the discussion at ALA.
Please comment on the timeliness of the proposed program topic.
A literature review reveals very little current scholarship on this topic, the majority of which is discipline of institution specific.
Target audience:
This session is aimed for public service professionals in academic libraries; all attendees welcome.

Preliminary program/institute/preconference description:
What is the future of ILL? Is it shiny and automated? Is it distributed and crowd-sourced? Is it integrated with other library servicessuch as Acquisitions or Collection Development- so as to be totally invisible? Or is it just plain broken and/or obsolete? Join a panel
of librarians both inside and outside of the field as they share their visions of resource sharing in Tomorrowland. Bring your own
jetpack!
Please comment on the timeliness of the proposed program topic.
Interlibrary Loan has undergone a dramatic shift over the past several years from being an ancillary service supplementing existing
library collections to a critical component in meeting library patrons’ day to day information needs. At the same time, new patrons
unfamiliar with many “traditional” library services (such as ILL) are bringing their own expectations and demands to us in unusual
ways. This panel will attempt to highlight these existing tensions and help provide some examples of how to move resource sharing
forward to anticipate future patron needs.
Target audience:
Access Services librarians, Collection Development librarians, Resource Sharing Librarians

Usability and You: Website Usability Testing @ Your Institution
Submission Type: Annual Conference Program - 60 Minute Session
Submission Status: Complete
Presenter(s)
Kathleen Phillips
Graduate and Government Documents Librarian
Marshall University
Role: Presenter
Qualifications
I have completed website usability testing as part of my job responsibilities at both a solo librarian with a small budget at a
community college, and as part of a group of librarians looking to update the library's virtual presence at a university. In each
case, I created, implemented, assessed, and applied the tests and their findings to each institution's websites.
Estimated audience attendance:
• Fewer than 50
Format of program:
• Presentation
Name of RUSA unit proposing program/preconference:
• RUSA
Learning Objectives
1. Upon completion, participants will be able to create and run their own website usability test.
2. Upon completion, participants will be able to analyze the results of a website usability test.
3. Upon completion, participants will be able to apply the findings of the website usability test in order to update their own
websites and make them more user friendly.
4. Upon completion, participants will be able to determine what kinds of questions and scenarios should be presented based on
where they work (public, academic, special, etc.).
5. Upon completion, participants will be able to complete the entire usability testing process for free or little cost to the library.
Name of RUSA unit proposing program/preconference:
Preliminary program/institute/preconference description:
Is your library’s website performing at its best? Do users find it accessible or impossible to navigate? Designing and administering a
website usability test is an important step to ensure that virtual information is accessible. In building the test, finding participants, and
analyzing and applying the findings, any library's website can be updated for little to no cost. Two West Virginia libraries conducted
such testing which lead to major website changes.
Please comment on the timeliness of the proposed program topic.
Website usability testing is a task that any and all libraries should be routinely conducting. With shrinking budgets, it is more
important than ever to begin thinking outside of the box and looking for ways to reduce unnecessary costs. Anything skills that can be
easily learned and applied in house, including website usability testing, should be learned and taken advantage of to the fullest extent.
Target audience:
Any library that has a website - public, academic, special, etc. and any librarian who is in charge of or involved with the upkeep of
said website will benefit from this session. Even if website creation and maintenance is outsourced, librarians can still conduct in
house testing and will ultimately have a stronger grasp of everything related to the website.
