  3. 3. Our previous work on the five-year program review and our past annual reports were aligned with the academic school year. This year’s report is aligned with the calendar year of 2017 due to our reporting access from our new ILS and to better highlight the camp season. Following the goals from our five-year program review, we have focused on providing a user experience of high quality that includes robust resource access regardless of location or access method and a stronger learning experience. Our actions from the past two years have included: • A newly designed webpage that is mobile friendly and ICA integrated. • Increased discovery opportunities with EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) that give wider database access. • Continually adding libguides that provide curated resources and guides for better research based on user needs. • A switchover to Evergreen, an open-source ILS (integrated library service) that is more user-friendly and less expensive than our previous system. • Continued collection development of varied and diverse materials in print and electronic mediums that support the academic, artistic, and recreational  needs of our users. • Increased teamwork and relationships with academic and arts instructors and other ICA support staff that have included more library instructional sessions and one-on-one interactions.
