Smarter Searching With Summon Suggestions
by Barbara Quint
Traditional—or should I say, classic—reference librarianship involved some basic practices in dealing with clients seeking information. When a client came in asking where to look for a topic, you directed them to the sources most focused on the subject area. When a bunch of clients kept asking for certain subjects, you put together a package and kept it handy for distribution. When clients began scratching their heads and furrowing their brows while using a search tool, you leaned over their shoulders and gave them some tips. Now Serials Solutions, a ProQuest company producing a leading discovery service called Summon, has introduced a suite of tools called Summon Suggestions that integrate the same kinds of service for digital content. Components of the new suite include upgraded Database Recommender and Best Bets along with Related Search Suggestions.

Concrete Steps Toward a Digital Public Library of America
by Paula J. Hane
The dream of a national digital public library is inching closer to reality. The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) initiative was launched in December 2010 with generous support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Since then it has been working to transition from a planning initiative to a fully independent 501(c)(3) organization and has crafted a draft job outline for DPLA Executive Director. The DPLA plans to make the cultural and scientific heritage of humanity available, free of charge, to all via a large-scale digital library.

INTERNET LIBRARIAN INTERNATIONAL

THE LIBRARY INNOVATION CONFERENCE

 October 17 & 18, London

ILI's Programme Director, Val Skelton, celebrates librarian superpowers. 
Librarians are leaders in tech, organizational influencers, expert marketers (often working with a zero budget), change managers, skilled data crunchers and expert internet searchers--and so much more. ILI's conference programme celebrates the incredible range of roles, skills, and initiatives librarians are carrying out every day. Over two days this October, six conference tracks highlight the importance of the internet librarian's role.

THE NEW LIBRARY, THE NEW LIBRARIAN – exploring some of the strategies, structures, teams, skills, services and collaborations librarians are using to ensure they stay at the cutting edge.

USERS, UX, AND USAGE – understanding how libraries are working with users to redesign services, spaces, and to understand usage.

CONTENT CREATIVITY – investigating how libraries are creating, curating, and marketing digital collections, how librarians are publishers in their own right, and how they are driving collaborative content creation.

FIGHT THE FAKE, FIND THE FACTS – celebrating two of the librarian's super powers--advanced search techniques and nurturing information integrity--in a post-truth/multi-truth era.

MARKETING THE LIBRARY – sharing stories of librarians who are influencing use and expanding audiences for their services and collections from the DJ librarian to the digital storyteller.

NEW SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATIONS – exploring why the scholarly communications landscape is changing, and what this means for libraries and information professionals.

In addition to a series of one-hour workshops - ILI Extra - covering a wide range of specialised skills and topics, from tech topics to personal development, ILI also hosts two one-day pre-conference workshops:

Websearch Academy 2017 explores the intricacies of research on the web. Our global expert speakers look at advanced search, evaluation of search engines, apps relevant to serious research, social media search, and analysis of search results.

Marketing Your Library Service: Principles and Actions--In libraries we spend so much time curating our content and services that sometimes we don’t put enough focus on telling people about what we do. We do so much, but how do we ensure people hear about what we offer and understand what we do?
