Authority Control In Digital Commons: Why Bother?, Laura Edwards Jun 2018

Authority Control In Digital Commons: Why Bother?, Laura Edwards

EKU Faculty and Staff Scholarship

Authority control provided by Digital Commons is basic. Other than author names, Digital Commons does not provide much in the way of authority control for other fields, such as faculty advisor/mentor names or department names. Standardizing name fields has several benefits, not least of which is the increased precision of reports that institutions can create to highlight the impact of faculty mentorship activities as well as the scholarship output of departmental entities on campus. Institutions that want to ensure the consistency of names across submissions to their Digital Commons repository, especially for self-submitted submissions, must develop their own methods ...

Barriers To Oer Adoption (And Possible Solutions), Amanda Hovious Aug 2017

Barriers To Oer Adoption (And Possible Solutions), Amanda Hovious

Texas Conference on Institutional Repositories

Type of presentation: Full Session

ABSTRACT

In 2012, at the World Open Educational Resources Congress in Paris, UNESCO declared that governments within their powers should develop strategies and policies that promote open educational resources (OER) as an avenue toward the universal right of equity of access to education. Though OER has increased exponentially in availability since that time, there remain confounding factors that act as barriers to OER adoption, such as ease of discovery, ease of adaptability and re-use, and uncertainty regarding quality and sustainability. Numerous studies have examined these barriers, and these studies should be of concern to librarians ...

Overcoming The Challenges Of Implementing Standardized Metadata Practices In A Digital Repository, Sai Deng Jan 2017

Overcoming The Challenges Of Implementing Standardized Metadata Practices In A Digital Repository, Sai Deng

Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

While implementing standards in cataloging digital collections is often a Metadata Librarian’s conscience or inner desire, sometimes it’s a challenge to do so if a system is not built to accommodate such standardized practices. This kind of dilemma is not uncommon in the metadata and digital repository arena. This presentation will address the various challenges in working with metadata in digital repositories such as, name authority control for authors, departments and colleges, type values selection, keywords and subject choices, whether to add linked data URIs to various fields in the records and data discrepancies in harvesting data into ...

Complicated Catalog - Teaching Students To Use One Search, Jennifer A. W. Joe Jan 2017

Complicated Catalog - Teaching Students To Use One Search, Jennifer A. W. Joe

Ex Libris Bluegrass Users Group Newsletter

A frequently heard complaint about One Search from the user experience end is that it is "complicated" or "over-whelming," but it has its positive points, too. The key is in teaching patrons who may have never had any experience outside of Google and traditional OPACs how to use it. This presentation covers best practices on how to teach One Search to new users in a thoughtful, less stressful manner using the very tools inherent in the discovery system - and how the thought and practice of teaching searches in One Search differs from the traditional OPAC.

Editing Legacy Metadata For Etds: Description Of A Best Practice Using The Marcedit Plug-In Tool, Marielle Veve

Marielle Veve


As the standards for describing & encoding metadata for electronic theses and dissertations (ETD) constantly change, so is the need to go back and retrospectively edit records that are not in accordance with the new rules. The process of retrospectively editing individual ETD records to meet new standards can be grueling and time-consuming, but with the creation of new tools and developments it does not have to be that way anymore.

The following presentation demonstrates a practical approach used by the University of North Florida (UNF) Libraries to retrospectively batch edit legacy metadata for ETD found in OCLC. The process is ...

Ensuring Ada Compliance For Library Databases, Shaden Melky, Laura Delancey Nov 2015

Ensuring Ada Compliance For Library Databases, Shaden Melky, Laura Delancey

Kentucky Convergence Conference

Electronic library content must be accessible to students with disabilities, however many institutions have focused on accessibility of physical facilities without considering the requirements for online information. Western Kentucky University (WKU) developed a required, automated program to audit WKU Libraries’ electronic content including, the website and library database vendors. Additionally, WKU began requesting documentation of accessibility features in the form of a Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT). This presentation will focus on both our internal auditing efforts and the challenges of obtaining accurate vendor documentation.

50 Shades Of Ebooks With A Hint Of Pda, Laura Edwards, Victoria Koger Nov 2015

50 Shades Of Ebooks With A Hint Of Pda, Laura Edwards, Victoria Koger

EKU Faculty and Staff Scholarship

Institutionally licensed eBooks have not quite lived up to users’ needs and libraries’ expectations. Patrons accustomed to the ease of accessing eBooks purchased via commercial sites such as Amazon and Google Play are sometimes thrown for a loop when they encounter eBooks via the library’s site and the myriad restrictions that seem designed to turn users away. Libraries struggle with managing the complexities of eBook licensing and access, and staying on top of the differences between vendor platforms. Add to that the rapidly changing landscape of the ebook business landscape (rocketing STL prices, conflicting access models for ebooks on ...
