Title: When Trainees Become Trainers: Empowering Student Interns and Library Staff through Student-Led Technical Skills Workshops
Presenter: Angel Su, University of Toronto

Professional development opportunities are in constant demand at the University of Toronto Libraries as staff seek to advance their skills and develop confidence in using new technologies. In response, a group of Electronic Resources and Metadata student interns prepared and delivered a series of workshops teaching data analysis, manipulation and visualization skills using Microsoft Excel. These workshops proved to be mutually beneficial for both students and staff as students had the opportunity to synthesize their knowledge through teaching, and senior staff were able to learn new skills in a comfortable environment under the enthusiastic instruction of junior staff.

Title: Development of a catalog of historical Mexican scientific journals
Presenter: Janet Falcon Hernandez, Escuela Nacional de Biblioteconomia y Archivonomia

Beginning with scientific journals which are registered titles in “Historical Atlas of Mexican Science (HAMS),” I put forward the following proposal: To develop a scientific journal catalog that includes works referring to science in Mexico, published in national or foreign journals, from the 18th century to the 20th century. The final product will be a reference source for researchers worldwide, that includes the 2,258 journals in HAMS. Also proposed is the enrichment of all bibliographic records with metadata.

**The below student proposal accepted but student was unable to attend the conference.

Title: CCPS Update
Presenter: Fatima Alejandra Morado Castillo , Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí, Facultad de Ciencias de la Información

Current budgetary allocation policies limit the acquisition of databases and serials, making it impossible to have all the information resources required, which creates the need to share resources. The purpose of this topic is to share the proposal of the CCPS update (part of the UASLP library system), with the aim of providing access to collections of serial publications that allow the optimal exchange of information and the dissemination of the collections available through it. In this way, it is possible to build a bridge that allows creating a current update of the 2013 version to fulfill its main objective, but that already works correctly
