Dlo Casting Call: At The Crossroads Of Instructional Design, Technology, And Collaboration, Ula Lechtenberg, Daniel Fitzroy

Library Publications

Growing campus needs call for varying ways to embed the library in teaching and learning. When mindfully created, digital learning objects provide librarians a way to engage students and faculty beyond the one-shot. Creating them, however, can be a daunting task, especially with limited resources. And if you build it, will they come? Librarians realized it was not enough to make good content.They also had to create a central access point for people to find them. This poster discusses good instructional design practices, key collaborations, and the technical details of creating an access point on the LibGuides CMS.

Sacred Heart University’s Open Educational Resources (OER) Task Force, an entity composed of the Office of the Provost, the Office of Digital Learning (ODL), Sacred Heart University Library, and faculty from across campus, has worked for the past two years to integrate OER into the educational culture of the university. To accomplish this we’ve employed a process that focuses on building awareness, identifying campus units for building strategic partnerships, assisting faculty in locating relevant resources, and, through pilot programs, onboarding OER into courses for trial.

Object Lessons: 3d Printing And Inter-Professional Collaboration Between The Library And The Literature Classroom, Laura Dumuhosky, Kenneth R. Wierzbowski, Megan A. Norcia

Library Publications

While the digital revolution has been readily embraced by the hard sciences, adoption by the humanities has been somewhat more delayed. A number of factors have prevented wide-scale inclusion of technology into humanities coursework including, but not limited to, a lack of training, resources or support for professional development. The new Makerspace at the Drake Memorial Library provided the chance to unite 3D printing technology, pedagogy, literary criticism, information literacy, and historical context into a children’s literature course at the College at Brockport. Students were charged to locate a single object from a work of children’s literature and ...

Library Publications

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada has called on federal, provincial, territorial, and municipal governments of Canada to educate public servants about the history and legacy of Indian residential schools and related topics, such as the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. This article advances this call to action by conceptualizing “public servant schools” as government organizations that provide learning opportunities to public servants. The Canadian adult education literature, however, is largely silent on this topic, even though numerous examples can be found across branches and levels of governments within Canada. Drawing on material acquired through ...

Creative opportunities and projects abound on a college campus; the harder part is converting these projects into publishable material. Learn how to take ideas and projects and publish them in scholarly journals as a librarian. Bring your own ideas and/or drafts, and we will work on them together. We will also identify publishing opportunities: both "traditional" journals and open access titles and provide links for more information.

Plagiarism: The Legal Landscape, Robert Berry Jan 2010

Plagiarism: The Legal Landscape, Robert Berry

Library Publications

In Chapter 10, Robert Berry discusses legal issues regarding plagiarism and academic cases of intellectual dishonesty.

From the Introduction: Colleges and universities with plagiarism policies that are fundamentally fair—and that are applied consistently—enjoy three significant advantages over those that do not. First, these schools enjoy greater legitimacy in the eyes of the people who must live with their decisions. They exercise genuine moral authority in their decision making, which is much more consistent with the goals of education, and they avoid the exercise of raw power that often accompanies ad hoc decision making. Second, educational institutions with fair ...

Patterns Of Reference Services At The University At Albany Library, Jennifer Little Kegler

Library Publications

The objective of this study was to determine the patterns of use at the University at Albany's Main Library reference desk by compiling and analyzing statistics for the latest three fall semesters (1991-1993) for use by the head of the reference department for scheduling staff.
