10:00-11:00 Delivering Greater Service to Your Patrons Using CCC's Get It Now
In 2009, The California State University Libraries had a problem. Obtaining journal articles via ILL wasn't meeting their patron's delivery expectations and all too often articles went unclaimed wasting time and money. Sound familiar? To solve this problem, the CSU Office of the Chancellor worked closely with Copyright Clearance Center to develop a cost-effective, expeditious article delivery service called "Get It Now". Today, Get It Now is used by over 150 academic institutions and is tightly integrated within the content search and ILL workflows via seamless integration with various link resolvers, ILLiad, Odyssey, and other library applications. Come learn more about Get It Now, hear how institutions are using and benefiting from it, and influence future development of the service by providing CCC with feedback on planned new features and enhancements.

11:15-12:15 Libraries and Open Content: How Creative Commons Creates Opportunities
Creative Commons is empowering web users to use and reuse each other's content, legally. This will, and does, enable nothing less than the true power of the internet to flourish. How does Creative Commons work within the library setting and where can libraries and librarians take advantage? This talk will focus on the purpose of Creative Commons and what problems it is solving, how it can be used in the world of libraries (especially relating to Open Access, science, and educational resources), and what the future holds, or could hold, for content creation and distribution.
Greg Grossmeier is the Education Technology and Policy Coordinator at Creative Commons. He focuses on how openly licensed education projects can better create, disseminate, and reuse educational materials. Previously, Greg was the Copyright Specialist at the University of Michigan Library where his time revolved around giving presentations and answering copyright and publishing related questions for faculty, staff, and students.
