LOUIS: The Louisiana Library Network coordinates a statewide affordable learning program that reduces costs and ensures students have access to required course materials. In the last session, you learned what all the acronyms AER, CDA, EBA IA…mean. In this session, we are going to fill you in on the ins and outs of implementing AER programs in coordination with our 47 member libraries. Key to the continued success and evolution of AER in Louisiana is recent legislation, ACT 125 Affordable Textbooks and Open Education Resources.

At every level of your organization, the last year-plus has been, without exception challenging for everyone. Over this summer, we in libraries have begun to make plans to return to “before times” tentatively, but can we go back to the way things were, or should we be looking forward to a very different future from our recent but distinctly solid past. The opportunity to rebuild or restructure in this new environment is daunting; thoughtful, intentional action needs to be at the forefront of this work. In this presentation, we will look at different areas of the library, including services, teams, and leadership, where long-term change could benefit the organization. The changes instigated through recent quick actions and decisions made during the pandemic offer the opportunity to explore what we should continue to do or do differently, and what new organizational needs have surfaced that require our attention in what will eventually become a post-COVID workplace.

ProQuest and Ex Libris are excited to showcase Leganto to CARLI members. Leganto is a course reserve and reading list solution built in Alma, geared towards increasing student success while improving affordability, efficiency, and faculty engagement.

See how your peers at Illinois Central College are using Leganto to strengthen and add value to the library’s role across campus.  In this webinar you will see how:

  • Leganto makes it easy for faculty and the library to set up course reading lists by leveraging the library collection, integrated directly into existing library workflows.
  • Students can access all their course materials from a single list with direct links to library-held material or online resources, and details about physical resources available at the library.
  • Leganto promotes the use of alternative sources: Identify alternative materials, including licensed ebook chapters, OERs, and multimedia.
  • Detailed analytics can be used to understand how the library collection is being used in courses, as well as understand the usage of non-library materials for collection development purposes.

Negotiated pricing for CARLI members is available now.
