ALCTS webinar: Standardizing Serials: COUNTER, SUSHI, SERU

Date: Wednesday, May 29, 2019

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11 AM Pacific, noon
Mountain, 1 PM Central, and 2 PM Eastern time.

This webinar is the second part of a two part series “Standardizing
Serials”.  Standardizing Serials is a two-part series that is meant for the
librarian who is new to serials work or wishes for a refresher on the many
standards that guide continuing resource licensing, discovery, and
acquisitions.   Attendees will learn the basics of KBART, Project Transfer,
COUNTER, SUSHI, and SERU from experts in the field. Beyond just explaining
these standards, however, speakers Kristen Wilson, Athena Hoeppner and Kate
Hill will demonstrate their own uses of these standards within their
workflows.  Through this, the series will help participants gain a better
understanding of how they can actually begin to implement standards use in
their own libraries.

Description: This webinar, the second part of the Standardizing Serials
series, will shift focus to standards related to collection acquisition and
analysis, specifically usage analysis (COUNTER and SUSHI) and constructing
publisher agreements (SERU), with explanations and demonstrations by
librarians who are standards experts. Each standard will be described at a
level for the non-expert, with a discussion of their background, purpose,
and an overview of their basic components and function. Presenters will
then draw on case studies from their own libraries to illustrate how these
standards can be used within regular library workflows.

Learning outcomes:

As a result of this program, participants will:


   Be able to explain common standards used within the world of continuing
   resources and electronic resources

   Identify areas within their own library in which they could implement or
   better use standards discussed.

   Locate and use resources to learn more about these standards and
   increase their own training and knowledge.

Who should attend?

People new to electronic resources and continuing resources ; People who
have worked in the continuing resources space but want a refresher on the
current state of standards.


Athena Hoeppner is the Discovery Services Librarian at the University of
Central Florida, in Orlando, Florida. Her career in academic libraries
spans over 20 years and a range of roles in public services, systems, and
technical services. In her current role, she jointly oversees the
eResources collection and expenditures, continuously strives to improve
discovery and access technologies, and spends too much time in email and
spreadsheets. Her first love remains public service, and she spends four
hours per week serving patrons via Reference and Ask a Librarian. Athena's
work and research center on applying technology to connect users to
content. Her projects explore user experience, resource discovery services,
and other technologies that enhance access to information for individuals.

Kate Hill began her library career as an NC State Fellow in the department
of Acquisitions and Discovery, where she focused her energy around creating
GOKb, the Global Open Knowledge base and became very familiar with the
inner workings of KBART and Project Transfer. After her time at NC State,
Kate became the Electronic Resources Librarian at UNC Greensboro, where she
manages all aspects of electronic resource acquisitions, discovery, and
collection development. Currently, she is the Chair of the ALCTS Continuing
Resources Standards Committee and also involved in the planning of
Electronic Resources & Libraries Conference (along with far too many other
committees). She also co-wrote the book The ABC's of Electronic Resources
Management, a highly practical introduction to working with electronic
resources designed for librarians learning on the job.
