Libraries Curating Evidence, Pru Mitchell Sep 2019

Libraries Curating Evidence, Pru Mitchell

Pru Mitchell

With their passion for information literacy and critical thinking, library staff are natural advocates for evidence–based practice. The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers require knowledge and understanding of research across all career stages (Standard 1.2). If the role of the library is to ensure the community has the resources and knowledge it needs to improve learning, then an important part of this role is to ensure teachers and leaders have access to research related to learning. This session looks at how to keep up with research (especially ICT-related research) and to see dissemination of research as part of ...

Engaging With Black Lives Matter And Supporting Our Communities, Yasmeen Shorish, Michael Mungin, Kristen S. Shuyler

Kristen S. Shuyler

In October 2016, the Diversity Council of Libraries and Educational Technologies produced book displays in Carrier and Rose Libraries that focused on "Understanding Black Lives Matter." The council wanted to provide information on this social movement within the context of national history and racial identity. A list of books that covered topic areas of criminal justice, Jim Crow, racism, and the Black experience - among others - was generated, along with two informational placards. One placard placed the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement within historical and social context, while the other placard offered a preemptive response to the question "Why not All ...

The Failure Of Skepticism: Rethinking Information Literacy And Political Polarization In A Post-Truth Era, Christopher A. Sweet Feb 2019

The Failure Of Skepticism: Rethinking Information Literacy And Political Polarization In A Post-Truth Era, Christopher A. Sweet

Christopher A. Sweet

Fake news has been shown to spread far faster than facts on social media platforms. Rampant fake news has led to deep political polarization and the undermining of basic democratic institutions. Skepticism is an important component of information literacy and has often been pointed to as the antidote to the fake news epidemic. Why are skepticism and information literacy failing so terrifically in this post-truth era? The presenters will summarize research drawn from the fields of psychology and mass communication that shows just how hardwired people are to believe information from their own “tribes” and resist outside contrary information.

On Trac To Success: Creating A Multi-Institution, Statewide Fulfillment Network, R. Todd Vandenbark, Brian Thompson, Dawn Mick, Greg Davis, Andrew J. Welch

Dawn Mick

In 2015, ten Iowa and Nebraska academic library systems prepared to migrate to Alma and Primo. Simultaneous adoption of a common ILS was unprecedented in Iowa, and we knew this was an opportunity to forge stronger connections between our libraries, collections, and institutions. Representatives from each library began meeting to discuss shared goals and objectives, and they formed TRAC: the Two Rivers Alma Collaborative.
Four TRAC libraries already belonged to a small regional consortium, but the rest did not. Our parallel migration timelines provided a chance to leverage our common--if not shared--library platform. Discussions ranged from sharing a Primo environment ...

Opening Up: Why Are We Not Using More Open Educational Resources (Oer’S)?, Daniel A. Sabol

CSIS Technical Reports

Open Educational Resources (OER) have the ability to alleviate student drop out rate, make faculty course design easier, allow faculty to contribute and participate in the OER undertaking that is swiftly spreading through our nation.

This work looks at findings from a survey which was sent out to list serves and direct email to faculty. The survey posed questions to try to determine why faculty were having a difficult time accepting and using OER’s in their own classroom. It ...

Navigating Wms Analytics For The Right Data, Laura Edwards, Todd King, Kelly Smith

EKU Faculty and Staff Scholarship

The presenters shared lessons learned from using OCLC WorldShare Management System (WMS) Analytics to gather statistics and data for both internal and external reporting purposes. Existing WMS reporting functionality simplifies special projects such as inventories and clean-up initiatives. However, both Collection Evaluation and Report Designer have limitations that make getting accurate collections numbers difficult due to gaps in the available data.

Accessibility: Electronic And Information Technologies (Eit), Wendy Walker, Teressa M. Keenan Apr 2016

Accessibility: Electronic And Information Technologies (Eit), Wendy Walker, Teressa M. Keenan

Mansfield Library Faculty Publications

In 2014, the President of the University of Montana (UM) signed a resolution agreement with the Department of Education Office for Civil Rights regarding the accessibility of electronic and information technology (EIT) at UM. Since that time, we have been learning about accessibility and accessible technologies and have investigated the accessibility of EIT-based services at the Mansfield Library. We will share what we have learned about EIT accessibility; key results from our assessment of CONTENTdm; and a new cataloging initiative that improves the discoverability of accessible materials in library collections.

Professional Identity And You: Why Self-Concept Matters In Librarianship, Kevin Tanner Nov 2015

Professional Identity And You: Why Self-Concept Matters In Librarianship, Kevin Tanner

FIMS Presentations

Kevin Tanner addresses the importance of professional identity in librarianship. In the Summer 2015 semester, he completed an independent study on the construction of professional identity of librarians on Twitter through professional development and networking. During this session, he shares the results of that study and give suggestions on how you can begin to find your own professional identity while still retaining your individuality. While there are many stereotypes about librarians, they are not “one-size-fits-all” professionals, and a new modern image of the professional has begun to emerge in the digital age through a thoughtful reflection on identity.

Queering The Library Of Congress, Carlos R. Fernandez Aug 2015

Queering The Library Of Congress, Carlos R. Fernandez

Works of the FIU Libraries

This poster will attempt to apply the techniques used in Queer Theory to explore library and information science’s use and misuse of library classification systems; and to examine how “queering” these philosophical categories can not only improve libraries, but also help change social constructs.

For millennia, philosophers, such as Plato and Aristotle, have used and expounded upon categories and systems of classification. Their purpose is to make research and the retrieval of information easier. Unfortunately, the rules used to categorize and catalog make information retrieval more challenging for some, due to social constructs such as heteronormality.

The importance of ...


Microaggressions: Small Actions That Are A Big Deal, Molly Higgins, Charlotte Roh Jun 2015

Microaggressions: Small Actions That Are A Big Deal, Molly Higgins, Charlotte Roh

Charlotte Roh

“Microaggressions” refer to those brief occurrences and encounters that subtly reinforce systems of power and privilege. The term can be applied across groups, including but certainly not limited to people of color, LGBTQ individuals, and individuals with disabilities. Libraries and information organizations are not immune to these microaggressions. They exist in our library catalogues, archives, research, professional organizations and interpersonal interactions. They have also garnered attention in the library world, through projects like the Microaggressions in Librarianship Tumblr, and a recent webinar on the subject put on by Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA). How do we create safe, affirming ...

Doing Even More With Less: Exploring Automation, Batch Processing And Outsourcing In Academic Libraries, Jeffrey Daniels, Patrick Roth

Patrick Roth

Doing more with less is a challenge facing all libraries.  Staff sizes are trending down while technical services work load remains the same or is increasing, at the same time there are new and emerging areas of focus for libraries.  Grand Valley State University Libraries have made a commitment to exploring any opportunity to outsource or streamline work flows.  Presenters will discuss specific examples that utilize outsourcing opportunities, emerging technologies, as well as batch processing to keep up with the work demand and benefit the library. Positives and negatives of these experiences will be explored.  Factors to be discussed will ...


Using Social Media In The Classroom: Assessment Of Its Effectiveness., Jennifer Wright Jul 2014

Using Social Media In The Classroom: Assessment Of Its Effectiveness., Jennifer Wright

Jennifer Wright Joe

Social media can be an effective tool in promoting critical thinking and collaboration in library instruction. Whether it is simple polls or a much more collaborative event, these methods engage students and allow them to interact with material, professors, and other students in an organized fashion that might not be feasible without the use of technology. However, many faculty members are quick to incorporate these new learning tools without regard to their effectiveness. In this session, several applications of social media will be presented and their effectiveness will be discussed. Then, to conclude, the participants will discuss the best way ...

How To Set Up An Erm In Your Library Without Killing Your Coworkers (And Vice Versa), Jon Hansen

Jon Hansen

As libraries shift more and more of the journals and books from print to online, keeping up with them makes an Electronic Resource Manager (ERM) more and more of a necessity. But setting up an ERM is no small task, and one that can put a strain on a library. This presentation will cover one library's experience with setting up an ERM, and what your organization can learn from our choices.


Breaking All The Rules: Lock-In At The Sciences Library, Brett Cloyd, Sara Scheib May 2014

Breaking All The Rules: Lock-In At The Sciences Library, Brett Cloyd, Sara Scheib

University of Iowa Libraries Staff Publications

Imagine forty first-year students at the library after hours, yelling and racing through the stacks, pulling books off the shelf before sprinting to another section. It might sound like a librarian’s worst nightmare, but it was all according to plan. In an effort to help overcome library anxiety and give our students a fun introduction to academic libraries, we broke all the rules to develop a Library Lock-In event. This collaborative effort supported by the Library, Residence Life, and the Honors Program turned out to be very successful and was one of the most well-attended programs offered to the ...
