Achieving The Holy Grail Of Electronic Resource Management With Automated Holdings Feeds, Antje Mays, Jody Stroh, Jozef Paulik Nov 2016

Achieving The Holy Grail Of Electronic Resource Management With Automated Holdings Feeds, Antje Mays, Jody Stroh, Jozef Paulik

Antje Mays

Libraries face many challenges with maintaining electronic resource holdings that are constantly changing. In this session, attendees will learn how libraries, a content provider and a knowledge base are working together to ensure accurate, up-to-date holdings via automated, institution-specific feeds that save libraries both time and frustration.

Library panelists will share their e-resource challenges and lessons learned followed by publisher/partner perspectives outlining what it takes to create and share these feeds. 
Be sure to join the conversation that follows and learn how automated holdings maintenance is a win-win-win for everybody!

The crop circle spectrometer represents a breakthrough in unbiased sensor data. Unlike traditional passive sensors, it pulses light at a speed of 20,000 times per second. With this comes the ability of these filters to discern reflectance measurements from that of natural sunlight, allowing it to be used in environments of sun, shade, and even darkness. From these various reflectance values at different wavelengths, we get measurements of plant health known as vegetation indices. And different vegetation indices can tell us different things about the health of a plant. Couple this with the recent advances in GPS technology, we ...

Apple Ipad Cart, Gregory Keith Bartley Jr., Brandon J. Horvath

Gregory Keith Bartley Jr.

Utilizing a Pelican Accessories Case, I was able to construct a power efficient, mobile iPad charging station cart capable of safely charging and transporting up to 10 iPads and 10 iPad Keyboards with additional compartments to accommodate any additional cords and/or devices. The introduction of WiFi Sync in Apple's iOS 5 Update allowed me to more efficiently compartmentalize any cords from being exposed. Compared to commercially-available iPad Sync and Cart Charging Systems which charge $1000+, this unit cost me around $100. It also uses far less power, due to no longer needing a powered USB hub network in ...
