Leadership In Action: Leading, Learning, And Reflecting On A Career In Academic Libraries, Patricia A. Iannuzzi

Presentations (Libraries)

The library literature is rife with books and articles about leadership, much of it derived or applied from the research external to the library profession. Our professional literature is also rich with surveys about the qualities of leadership. This opening session provides a counterpoint to the theoretical, academic approach to the study of leadership in libraries. Based upon more than 30 years of experience, including positions ranging from library assistant to dean, Patricia Iannuzzi provides a practical approach to leadership roles for academic librarians on campus, in our profession, and within the higher education arena. In this personal reflection, Iannuzzi ...

"I Cannot Tell What The Dickens His Name Is": Name Disambiguation In Institutional Repositories, Lizzy A. Walker, Michelle Armstrong 2014 Boise State University

"I Cannot Tell What The Dickens His Name Is": Name Disambiguation In Institutional Repositories, Lizzy A. Walker, Michelle Armstrong

Library Faculty Publications and Presentations

INTRODUCTION Authors who publish under more than one form of their name, multiple authors with the same name, and incomplete author information can all create challenges for repository staff when entering metadata. Unless properly addressed, these variations and duplications can result in search and retrieval errors for users. Name disambiguation, the process of identifying, merging, and making names accessible in one standard form, is a vital process repository staff should incorporate into their workflow to address these issues. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM Staff working with ScholarWorks, Boise State’s institutional repository, are exploring the use of disambiguation tools to solve the ...

They Can And They Should: Undergraduates Providing Peer Reference And Instruction, Brett B. Bodemer 2014 California Polytechnic State University

They Can And They Should: Undergraduates Providing Peer Reference And Instruction, Brett B. Bodemer

Library Scholarship

Peer learning dynamics have proven powerful in collegiate contexts. These dynamics should be leveraged at the undergraduate level in academic libraries for reference provision and basic information literacy instruction. Drawing on the literature of peer learning, documented examples of peer reference and instruction in academic libraries, and preliminary evidence from current practice at California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo, this article provides support from the pedagogical standpoint that undergraduates not only can provide peer reference and instruction, but should. The relevance to other institutions and additional assessment methods for establishing the efficacy of peer instruction are also discussed.

Collaborative Organizational Infrastructures To Support Open Access Journals, Marianne A. Buehler

Presentations (Libraries)

With the advancement of open access (OA) journal publishing opportunities in partnership with presses and faculty, libraries in alignment with intersecting academic values are fulfilling a need by supporting sustainable models of scholarly communication that incorporate disseminating faculty scholarship in collaboration with library and/or press staff and editors to “start up” an OA journal or transform an existing print journal to OA. Library staff that embrace faculty or student publishing partnerships are structuring and utilizing their scholarly communication skill sets by positioning the availability of open access publications to disseminate quality research results. University presses are also forging alliances ...


Utilizing Ir Content Discovery Streams, Marianne A. Buehler 2014 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Utilizing Ir Content Discovery Streams, Marianne A. Buehler

Presentations (Libraries)

Institutional repositories (IRs) host an abundance of unique and valued digital content. The premise of garnering scholarly and local collection materials is to engage them for visibility and accessibility. As an additional tool to assist in the process of creating an infrastructure for reachable content, the WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway tool enables academic libraries to target individual repository collections to minimally harvest the metadata and be visible through WorldCat.org and OAIster. Collection items display their metadata while available full-text deposits from the Gateway create links to expose an IR’s record and the object itself that could include an ...

Utilization And Refinement Of Standard Curation Models, Max Eckard, Jonathan P. Leidig 2014 Grand Valley State University

Utilization And Refinement Of Standard Curation Models, Max Eckard, Jonathan P. Leidig

Articles

The OAIS and Curation Lifecycle Model provide widely accepted models for curation workflows. However, primary and scientific research often produces content in a manner incompatible with the lack of emphasis these models place on integrating curation-supporting activities in early stages within a scientific workflow. Pre-ingest modules are needed in both models to enable curation of complex, domainspecific content during generation processes.

Evolution Of Data Creation, Management, Publication, And Curation In The Research Process, Lisa Zilinski, Darcy Bullock, Deborah Horton, David Scherer, Courtney E. Matthews

Libraries Faculty and Staff Presentations

Sharing research data and scholarship is of national importance due to the increased focus on maximizing return on the government’s investment in research programs. Recent policy changes have directly affected the management and accessibility of publically-funded research. On January 18, 2011 the National Science Foundation (NSF) required data management plans to be submitted with all grant proposals. On February 22, 2013, the Office of Science and Technology Policy of the President of the United States extended a similar requirement to all federal agencies with research and development budgets of more than $100 million. These requirements illustrate the need for ...


Data Management Brownbag Evaluation Summary, Megan N. O'Donnell, Bonnie S. Bowen 2014 Iowa State University

Data Management Brownbag Evaluation Summary, Megan N. O'Donnell, Bonnie S. Bowen

Library Reports

Data management and sharing became a national research concern when the National Science Foundation (NSF) began requiring Data Management Plans (DMPs) as part of their grant proposal process in January of 2011. While NSF is not the only funding agency requiring DMPs they are one of the largest and most diverse. As competition for grant funding has become more competitive, what were once considered sideshow documents to the main proposal may now factor into proposal acceptance or rejection. In 2013, Iowa State University received over 38 million dollars in sponsored funding from the National Science Foundation. In order to maintain ...
