Event Details

Rocky Mountain Region Innovative Users Group 2015 meeting

RMRIUG will be taking place in two separate areas of the Norlin Library on the campus of the University of Colorado – Boulder. Even with the Summer session out parking is very limited. I have set up an agreement with Parking Services that allows attendees to get all-day parking for $9.00 you can purchase passes by following the link for RMRIUG here:

There is very limited free parking on The Hill which is the area of student housing across Broadway from the university. Also, if you have a parking pass from another CU campus there is a reciprocal parking agreement.

We will be meeting in the Center for British and Irish Studies on the 5th floor of the Norlin Library, The easiest way to get to the CBIS is to enter Norlin from the western entrance (facing the quad) and take the stairs or elevators to the 5th floor. Maps to the lay out of Norlin are available here.

If you or a member of your party have mobility issues you'll need to enter Norlin from the East due to construction taking place on the ADA ramp at present. Then take an elevator to the 2nd level and follow directions as above. 

Since we’ve had such an outpouring of people interested in presenting at the event I’ve had to separate them into tracks. The following is a tentative agenda:


9:30 Coffee time

9:45 Welcome from Dean Williams


Presenters: Rochelle Wordsworth, III,  Senior Library Realtions Manager & Maruta Skujina, III, Customer Sales Consultant


Presenter: Rose Nelson, Assistant Director, CO Alliance


Presenter: Rachel Fewell, Denver Public Library 

Libraries and the Web are natural partners, but have yet to connect and share their power in a truly meaningful way. The Libhub Initiative aims to change that by engaging libraries to deliver the expert richness of content, context, and curation into formats that the Web can understand and share. Denver Public Library has been the pioneering institution in this initiative to translate MARC catalog data into BIBFRAME and publishing it on the Web. Learn about our partnerships, experiences, and success of the initiative, so far.

12:00 Lunch on your own (or with Breakout groups) a partial list of eateries

1:15 Breakout Sessions:


Sierra Migration



Presenter: Mary Katherine Katzer, Member Services Librarian, Marmot

After several months, or even a year, of using Sierra, most users have a solid understanding of the functionality that is used in routine and regular tasks. This program is designed to enlighten us all on ways to make better use of many functions within the software.  Based on the input of members of a multi-type consortium, we will share database maintenance tips as well as tricks in the arena of circulation.

1:45 SIERRA AND ERM: Coverage Load What Can It Do For Me? (M410)

Presenter: Jennifer Leffler, Tech Services Manager, University of Northern Colorado

The University of Northern Colorado conducts a coverage load through the ERM every month. Jennifer Leffler will discuss how the files are constructed, talk about the process of coverage load, and show the reports that are produced after the monthly load. Tips and tricks will be shared; audience participation is welcome in discussing how coverage load can be used to provide better access to e-journal collections


Presenter: Brandon Cole, User Services Manager, Marmot

In this program, we will discuss how a multi-type consortium handles spine labels using print templates in Sierra. We will show how to edit spine label print templates in the newest Jaspersoft editor (Jaspersoft Studio 5.6.2). How do you handle multiple libraries with different labels templates ranging from Demco to Gaylord? We will discuss the process of formatting the margins and assigning the correct data fields to get the labels preferred by each library.


Presenter: Jimmy Thomas, Executive Director, Marmot

Marmot implemented VuFind in 2010, when system integration with Millennium necessarily depended on screen-scraping. After upgrading to Sierra, Marmot implemented the first phase of Sierra APIs in 2014. We continue working with iii as a beta partner on the next phase of Sierra APIs. This session will include an overview of Pika functionality with descriptions of how Sierra APIs work to benefit users in the Marmot Library Network and, most recently, the Flatirons Library Consortium.


Presenters: Joel Tonyan, Systems and User Experience Librarian, Stephanie Spratt, Electronic Resources and Serials Librarian, Mary Beth Chambers, Director of Cataloging and Metadata Services, University of Colorado-Colorado Springs

As a growing number of electronic resources are added to academic library collections, linking and authentication services become key to providing a secure and problem-free research experience for users. EZProxy implementation is one way to aid that experience. The speakers will discuss initial setup of EZProxy as it relates to the Sierra Integrated Library System as well as full implementation considerations such as database record maintenance, batch loading, testing and troubleshooting. Any library using Millennium or Sierra which plans to or has recently implemented EZProxy would benefit from this discussion. Library employees directly involved in ILS infrastructure, electronic resources management and electronic resources cataloging will be able to take the information and steps provided here back to their own libraries to apply to their EZProxy implementation.

3:15 SPRINGER COLLECTION REDUX: Using Two Batch Sources To Address Collection Gaps (CBIS)

Presenter: Oscar Raab, Digital Collections Services, Colorado State

Our library identified problem with our existing Springer e-book records, delivered from OCLC. Most significantly these included inconsistent and non-DOI URLs, and gaps in the collection, i.e. not getting records for titles we have access to. We took the approach of reloading the full collection, from two different sources (Springer and OCLC) to address these problems. The presentation will cover those problems we identified, why we chose to reload the entire collection, and how we managed two batch file sources. It will also cover our experience with OCLC’s new WorldShare Collection Manager Service, and the advantages and issues we’ve found there.
