You’ve Gotta Read This: Summer Reading at Musselman Library

Each year, Musselman Library asks Gettysburg College faculty, staff, and administrators to help create a suggested summer reading list. The result is You’ve Gotta Read This!—a booklet filled with fiction, nonfiction and film recommendations that we hope will offer a reading and viewing go-to list for the summer and beyond.

The 2019 collection has suggestions from 173 employees who offer 258 recommendations of favorite books, films, and television programs that will satisfy a wide range in reading and viewing tastes and genres.

Development Of The Chester Fritz Library (Cfl) Peer Research Consultants Program, Karlene T. Clark, Holly Gabriel

Librarian Posters and Presentations

There has been a steady decline in the number of reference questions asked at central reference desks at academic libraries across the United States. The reference desk at the University of North Dakota’s main library has also seen a steady decline in reference questions. In an effort to make better use of professional librarians’ time and energy, library staff are starting a pilot program in Fall 2019 to use undergraduate peer research consultants (PRC’s) to staff the reference desk, thereby freeing up the reference librarians to do more library instruction and outreach. The PRC’s will be undergraduate ...

Organizing Your Organization: Taxonomy And Organizational Schemes In A Health System Institutional Repository, Daina Dickman, Heather J. Martin

Books, Presentations, Posters, Etc.

Background: In the development of a new institutional repository, library staff at a large health system were faced with building an organizational structure that would be meaningful to both internal and external users. The health system context meant unique challenges designing a taxonomy that supported end users as well as institutional goals and branding. Health systems have unique user needs for specialized collections and organizational schemes. With a comparatively large volume of items being added there are also concerns with the backend structures to accommodate the institutions’ large research output.

Background: In January 2018, library services at Providence Health/Swedish and St. Joseph Health merged to form a single, unified system, incorporating nine libraries and sixteen full-time staff.

Our merged library serves patrons in seven states, and much of our work, including communication with patrons and each other, is conducted over email.

Ms. Coll. 251: Literary Models, Religion, And Romantic Science In John Syng Dorsey’S Poems, 1805-1818 (Expanded), Samantha Destefano

Transcription Collection

John Syng Dorsey (1783-1818) was a Philadelphia surgeon and the author of The Elements of Surgery (1813), the first American textbook of surgery. He was also the author of Poems, 1805-1818 (UPenn Ms. Coll. 251), a forty-page collection that reveals his interests in spirituality, the history of science and medicine, and classical and eighteenth-century British poetry. Decades after Dorsey’s death, his son Robert Ralston Dorsey (1808-1869) revised his father’s poems, identified classical sources with Latin and Italian quotations, and completed Dorsey’s final, unfinished poem. This project analyzes Dorsey’s literary, scientific, and biblical allusions and contextualizes his ...

Outreach, instruction, and promotion tactics had to also be created to reach researchers and clinical staff across six states and 100+ locations.

In Our Comfort Zone: 2 Years Post Tipasa From Illiad, Derek Malone

Faculty Presentations

In the summer of 2016 we began our transition from ILLiad to Tipasa. ILLiad was a highly regarded and deeply loved program for our library staff. So, transitioning required a lot of examination in workflows, procedures, and processes. There were, of course, things we wish were different. However, there are many new and exciting opportunities that were available because of the transition. Many of which are loved by our internal staff and external faculty, staff, and students.

This presentation will cover the challenges in the transition, what we did to overcome them, and what was different in comparison to ILLiad ...
