Wikidata Edit-a-Thon (Part One)
This session will teach participants how to add and edit scholarly articles and books in Wikidata, the fastest growing source of open bibliographic information. At the time of writing, Wikidata contains nearly 19 million bibliographic records. The large majority of these records are about scholarly articles in bio-medicine and the sciences. Our Wikidata edit-a-thon will help to change that! Learn how to enter articles, books, and journals into Wikidata to expand its coverage of your areas of theological interest. These session will be hands-on from the beginning. You will set up an account, identify a gap in the theological literature, and be fruitfully editing Wikidata within the first ten minutes. Please bring a laptop or other computing device.

Technology Innovation in Small Theological Libraries: The Fruit of Library/I.T. Collaboration (Part One)
Come learn about how you can use the power of G Suite and Google powered hardware including Chromeboxes, Chromebits, and the Jamboard in your library. These tools can be used to meet many needs in a library. They offer a low cost solution that is user friendly, easy to maintain, and secure. Attendees will see first hand just how easy and fast it is to setup a catalog search station and self-service checkout station using a Chromebit. Use of a Google Jamboard will also be demonstrated for use by Library staff and as a tool for Library patrons. The session will have some technical content, but presented in a way that is easily understood by library staff. Attendees will leave with resources to walk them through using these tools in their own libraries.
