#m1a: UX/Usability
Presentation 1:
Snapshot - Prioritizing Users with Print Disabilities @ the HathiTrust Digital Library
Mass digitization of library collections has radically expanded the number of books available to users with print disabilities, who have historically found it difficult to get access. As part of its mission, HathiTrust has implemented and improved services for this user group, including enabling access to the entire corpus.
Presenter: Angelina Zaytsev

Presentation 2:
Snapshot - “So, what did you expect to happen when you clicked on that?” A report from the usability lab.
This presentation reports on results from usability testing undertaken to support Reed Digital Collections (RDC). Users tested the RDC interface as well as those of the Universal Viewer, Mirador, Google Books, HathiTrust, and others. Emphasis will be on user responses to the display, navigation, and search of book-like objects.
Presenter: Laura Buchholz

Presentation 3:

Avoiding techno-service-solutionism: Applying infrastructural perspectives and learning theory to digital humanities practice in the library
Many librarians express interest in digital humanities but perceive a gap in their technical expertise, thinking they need to learn to code or become familiar with tools.

We draw insights from learning theory and infrastructure studies.

Presenter: Scout Calvert

Presentation 3
Open Licenses: The Dark Side
Open licenses are great! Many project funders increasingly encourage or require them. However, they create some new challenges, both for digitizing existing collections, and when partnering to create new digital content – particularly with indigenous or marginalized communities. We’ll explore these issues with examples from specific digital projects.

#w2a: Discovery&Dev
Presentation 1
Snapshot - Digital Librarians on the Software Developer Continuum
As digital librarians, we fall somewhere on the continuum between "software developer" and "software user." How does viewing ourselves as co-creators rather than consumers of software affect our perceptions of our abilities and responsibilities when working with software, and what are the implications for participation in open-source software communities?
Presenter: Robin Dean

Presentation 2

#w2b: Archiving+
Presentation 1
WARC Workflows: A pilot project for the local preservation of institutional web archives
The Archive-It web archiving service is widely used by libraries and cultural institutions to capture web-based content. But Archive-It is not a preservation repository, and encourages distributed local preservation. In this presentation, we will share our WARC workflows and discuss the results of a collaborative local preservation pilot project.
Presenters: Lauren Work, Jamie Little, Laura Capell

Presentation 2
Quality and Quantity: A Discussion of Performing Quality Assurance on Archived Web Pages

Presenters: Megan DeArmond, Audrey Lorberfeld

Presentation 3
Snapshot - Web Archiving Metadata Best Practices to Meet User Needs
Archived websites are not easily discoverable via search engines or other discovery tools, and lack of shared metadata practices is a root cause. To address this, OCLC Research has launched a Web Archiving Metadata Working Group that is evaluating existing approaches and will develop best practices to meet user needs.
Presenter: Jackie Dooley

Presentation 4
Snapshot - Hip Hop Narrators, Embeddable Metadata, and Nanopublications: New Ways of Thinking about Metadata and Annotated Publications for Web Discovery, Indexing, and Archiving
What are the ties that bind metadata with the object it describes? This snapshot considers how embedded metadata standards like JSON-LD, RDFa, or Web Manifest files can cast and frame metadata within a Hip Hop MC/voiceover/narrator metaphor wherein new possibilities for discovery, archiving, and publication formats emerge.
