    This session will focus on examining current best practices as well as future opportunities for fostering climate resilient archives in Hawaii and the Pacific.

    Advocating for Hawaiʻi Children’s Books Somewhere Over the Rainbow
    ( 2021-12-03) Tarnas, Kristin ; Arzate, Sarah ; Charron, Alita ; Kelly, Sheri ; Nakamura, Taryn ; Nielsen, Lauren ; Robertson, Stephanie
    Our poster will address the need for our communities to serve the children of Hawaiʻi by advocating for books created for and about Hawaiʻi’s children, encouraging a vigorous local literary community, which honors the value of literacy and story in Hawaiian culture. We will share our goal to bring attention to local book creators, publishers, and children’s librarians through our Ānuenue Hawaiʻi Children’s Book award hui. We believe that intentionally sharing and highlighting stories that Hawaiʻi’s children can relate to will provide a sense of belonging through literature, and also inspire children to value, and share their own important stories throughout their lives.

    Not Just a Study Hall: Engaging Student Workers in the Academic Library
    ( 2021-12-03) Kerns, Halie
    This poster will explore the role of academic library student workers in a changing landscape, ideas for engaging them in the library ecosystem, and examples of how in turn, they can be ambassadors for the library among their peers. Without student workers, many functions of the academic library would cease to exist. While most work-study jobs involve basic tasks, including student workers when it comes to organizing activities and selecting resources for student use, is a great way to incorporate a diverse perspective in the fabric of library decision making. When students love working in the library, they promote library services through word of mouth, bringing their peers to the library. Drawing on experience in libraries in Illinois, Hawaiʻi, and New York, examples of trainings, engagement activities, and student success stories will be highlighted.

    Reimagining Library Spaces and Learning Frameworks at The JFS Library at BYU–Hawaii
    ( 2021-12-03) Robertson, Stephanie ; Falevai, Zoia
    Ever-evolving trends in higher education call for a reimagining of library spaces and learning frameworks in order to better address each unique campus community and their needs. The Joseph F. Smith Library at BYU–Hawaii has answered this call by linking arms with our campus learning and teaching center and their framework which invites teachers and learners to prepare, engage, develop, and improve as lifelong learners. Teaching and modeling information literacy best practices is a cornerstone of this reimagining. Information literacy is not an isolated skill as it correlates, comports with, and builds upon other competencies and learning abilities such as critical thinking, problem-solving, metacognition, critical information evaluation, and active learning.

    Project Hoʻopoeko: Normalizing Hawaiian Language at the Workplaces
    ( 2021-12-03) Reyes, Kuuleilani
    How did Native Hawaiian educators create and teach an engaging Hawaiian language program at work sites? How did we meet the cultural and digital needs of adult learners during COVID? How did we implement and complete an ANA grant project that we didn’t write? How did we manage our various perspectives, experiences and personalities to create meaningful Hawaiian language opportunities through: collaboration with other community organizations; utilization of archival and contemporary resources; and, adaptation in person to online learning opportunities. Our poster will also share lessons from developing language lessons, support system tools, such as Pixton, Quizlet and Kahoot!, to ultimately creating a new language digital instructional manual in addition to teaching online.

    E Ola Ka ʻIke Hawaiʻi (Long Live Hawaiian Knowledge)
    ( 2021-12-03) Reyes, Kuuleilani ; Meyer, Keikilani ; Naipo, Stacy
    In 2020, the World Indigenous Nations University-Hawai‘i Pasifika (WINUHP) launched the E Ola Ka ʻIke Hawaiʻi (Long Live Hawaiian Knowledge) project. The purpose of the project is to increase access to and engagement with culturally-relevant Native Hawaiian digital resources via information literacy skills development for Native Hawaiians, educators and librarians. E Ola Ka ʻIke Hawaiʻi project leaders have developed an entirely online, dynamic curriculum to offer a certificate program, which was piloted in 2021. The poster will depict the implementation of E Ola Ka ʻIke Hawaiʻi in terms of its significant impact on augmenting Leo Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian Voice) and the advancement of Hana Hawaiʻi (Hawaiian Work) all while working online during the pandemic. We will share lessons we learned and discuss the future direction of this wonderful project.

    ( 2021-12-03) Young, Jonathan ; Gustavsen, David
    During the shift to online reference service necessitated by the pandemic, UHM Hamilton Library relied on its chat reference service as a major point of contact with users. This poster will show the findings of a comprehensive analysis of chat interactions from August 2019 to April 2020. This covers the impact of both the pandemic and the refinement of the Chat interface in January 2020. Implications of the results on the library’s staffing and data-gathering models for Chat Reference going forward post-pandemic will be discussed.

    Public Health at the Public Library: Preventative Health Programs Implemented in Large Public Libraries
    ( 2020-12-04) Patil, Uday ; Buscher, Michele
    While many public libraries have closed their doors during this time of turmoil and uncertainty, many are offering remote programs to promote wellness and prevent illness. Even before the pandemic, American public library systems were providing preventive health programming on a variety of conditions in partnership with health professionals. This study systematically analyzed such programs offered in the largest public library systems nationally. Using public web calendars and social media accounts (i.e., Facebook and Twitter) of main branches, the authors identified preventive health programs in 2019. This research also summarized event distribution across library systems, by health topic and risk factors, and by preventative education level.

    Using Linked Data to Enhance the User Experience: Linking library data to VIAF IDs to enrich the catalog at Smithsonian Libraries
    ( 2016-11-11) Ota, Allyson
    This poster highlights the results of an internship project completed during the summer of 2016 for Smithsonian Libraries Digital Programs and Initiatives Division, utilizing OpenRefine to reconcile identifiers in an effort to link library data to standardized identifiers. Linked Data promotes the sharing of information through harnessing the power of the Semantic Web and can enable cultural heritage organizations to better share their collections and engage users with added findability and accessibility via the Web.
