Presentations
 
Evaluating Discovery Architectures
David Bietila, Emma Boettcher
University of Chicago Library, United States of America
 
Drawing upon lessons from a recent discovery integration project, this presentation will propose a method for comprehensively evaluating discovery architecture options. We will consider how best to compare diverse methods for consolidation of data and services, how to accommodate inconsistent data, and how to make resulting integrations comprehensible to users.
 
 
Discovering Digitized Primary Sources: Google Search & Umbra Search African American History
Cecily Marcus
University of Minnesota/Umbra Search, United States of America
 
This workshop demonstrates a scalable lesson plan for introducing high school and undergraduate students to primary research using digital collections by comparing and contrasting keyword searches in Google and Umbra Search African American History, a discovery tool for African American history materials from across the country.
 
 
Trans-inclusive systems design
Erin White
Virginia Commonwealth University, United States of America
 
In this snapshot I’ll discuss work our library has done to make our systems and other services more inclusive for trans and nonbinary students, based on recommendations developed by a workgroup of full-time and student employees.
 
 
(re)Building for the Archival Moment: Progressive Web Apps as Digital Library Software Architectures for Emulation and Preservation
Jason A. Clark
Montana State University, United States of America
 
What if we built our digital libraries for the preservation moment? What if they were portable, worked offline, and could be emulated in any web browser? In this session, we'll look at how Progressive Web Apps (PWA) offer new opportunities for digital library design, software architectures, and metadata.
