Presentations and Bios:

Connecting the Dots with Library Services to Improve Health and Patient Safety
What do pirates, hand hygiene education, and ciguatera poisoning have in common? The medical library! Medical libraries are an often-overlooked resource that can provide vital services that improve the quality and safety of patient care. Emily Spinner will describe how, as a hospital librarian, her ability to solve problems and engage with stakeholders allows her to support the hospital community in inventive ways.
Emily N. Spinner, MSIS, MA is the clinical medical librarian at Ellis Medicine. Her professional interests include promoting health literacy and evidence-based practice. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her children and taking too many photos.

Libraries as Change Leaders, Open Educational Resources as Catalyst

Recognizing an immediate need to re-engage with local stakeholders - faculty and students - four years ago, librarians at Fulton-Montgomery Community College's Evans Library focused their efforts on Open Education Resources as a means to flex faculty's right to use open learning material appropriate for their courses and increasing access for students to learning materials while remaining true to the core of librarianship. This past year, thanks to an infusion of eight million dollars in the New York State budget allocated to OER use in higher education, 58,000 SUNY students have saved over 6 million dollars, and libraries and librarians have lead the way in the discovery, evaluation, access and use of OER.
Michael V. Daly is the Instruction & Public Services Librarian at Fulton-Montgomery Community College's (SUNY) Evans Library. During 2017-2018 he is also serving as an Open Education Resources (OER) mentor for SUNY OER Services, working with SUNY institutions, libraries, and faculty to adopt OER as a means of decreasing the cost of attending college, increasing access to learning materials, and furthering completion rates.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Collaboration

When Libraries respond to the needs of their communities, both are strengthened. By looking outward and forming non-traditional partnerships - from organizing political debates with the business association to holding a scavenger hunt in a grocery store, libraries are able to expand their services and deepen their impact.
