 *This NISO Virtual Conference Is Only One Week Away!*

*Wednesday, August 15, 11am – 5pm (Eastern Daylight)*

*The Computer Campus: Integrating Information Systems and Services

We’re at the beginning of a new academic year. Think about how many of your
online systems interact with other online systems at your institution.
Consider the computing activities that you are asked to support on behalf
of faculty and students. What are the practical implications? That’s what
this virtual NISO conference is all about!

Here’s a sample of what our speakers will be covering:

*A Collaborative Approach to Supporting Research and High Performance

*Marcy Vana*, Senior Support Scientist, Becker Medical Library, Washington
University in St Louis;

Biomedical researchers increasingly need basic programming skills and
access to shared computing resources to conduct their research. In response
to this evolving research environment, Becker Medical Library and the
Center for High Performance Computing at Washington University in St. Louis
formed a partnership to support the use of biomedical data analysis
software designed for a cluster environment and to develop a series of
introductory research computing workshops aimed at researchers new to
programming and cluster computing. Demand for the introductory research
computing workshops, in particular, has been very high, suggesting that
there is a significant need for support in this area on campus. In order to
meet this need, we have extended this successful collaboration to include
the recently created Institute for Informatics, allowing us to begin to
cover additional topics and further support the research community on

*Web Privacy and Web Analytics*

*Scott W.H. Young*, User Experience & Assessment Librarian, Montana State

Privacy is a long-held value of libraries. Today’s networked
technologies—including social media, web analytics, and cloud
computing—present new challenges for achieving privacy. Google Analytics
offers an instructive use case. This leading third-party analytics tracker
is widely implemented on library websites, yet its privacy incursions are
not widely understood by librarians or library users. How can we realize
our values and achieve privacy in the age of analytics? This presentation
will provide an overview of the main issues associated with this question,
and discuss practical and strategic responses that libraries can implement
to enhance our analytics practices with a view towards privacy.

*The lock to the safe has been tampered with: Why FERPA & IRB aren’t enough
to protect student data in higher education*

*M. Brooke Robertshaw*, Assistant Professor & Assessment Librarian, Oregon
State University;

This presentation will discuss why the Federal Education Rights Privacy Act
(FERPA), and Institutional Review Boards (IRB), are not effective safe
guards for protecting student data in this time of big data and learning
analytics, even in the library. It will then touch on how the methodologies
used in assessment and learning analytics are unintentionally, or
intentionally, misused. The presentation will end with a list of practical
actions that people can take in response to what they will learn from this
