Impostor Phenomenon: Alive And Well Among Library Leaders, Elizabeth Martin May 2014

Impostor Phenomenon: Alive And Well Among Library Leaders, Elizabeth Martin

Elizabeth Martin

Imposter Phenomenon (IP), also known as Imposter Syndrome, has been a popular topic in higher education for over 30 years. This presentation will reflect my research on the topic of Impostor Phenomenon (IP) in academic library managers and administrators. The presentation will give an overview of IP and the literature found on the topic. It will review the traits and types of IP that are commonly expressed.

How To Set Up An Erm In Your Library Without Killing Your Coworkers (And Vice Versa), Jon Hansen May 2014

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 ...


Catching Fire: Burning Down Our Silos To Fire-Up Our Communities, Sara Scheib, Leo Clougherty May 2014

Catching Fire: Burning Down Our Silos To Fire-Up Our Communities, Sara Scheib, Leo Clougherty

University of Iowa Libraries Staff Publications

In this era of specialization and “target markets”, opportunities to partner with outside organizations to reach new groups of users are frequently overlooked or ignored. We have to work together with other groups on campus and in the community in order to let people outside appreciate what we have gathered inside our walls and web sites. Building these working relationships with museums, campus offices, and other library departments can have unexpectedly good results for everyone involved! We have had success in collaborating with other campus units to develop presentations, host social events and create exhibits highlighting our libraries and museums ...


Outreach To Science Faculty And Students Through Research Exhibitions, Tina Chan, Chris Hebblethwaite Oct 2013

Outreach To Science Faculty And Students Through Research Exhibitions, Tina Chan, Chris Hebblethwaite

Upstate New York Science Librarians Conference

Presentation describes bringing a display of student scholarship to Penfield Library at SUNY Oswego. Two science librarians approached faculty members regarding potential participation and then organized a showcase of science research inside the library. Having research posters displayed in a visible, central, and active location allows the broader campus community to view the latest research from students and faculty. Reaching out to science faculty reminds them that librarians can help with their library needs, and that the library is a place to highlight their and their students’ research.


Open Culture At The Heart Of The University: Libraries As Multicommons, Anna K. Gold Sep 2013

Open Culture At The Heart Of The University: Libraries As Multicommons, Anna K. Gold

Anna K. Gold

The university library can be reconceptualized as a powerful engine for open culture. A generative and regenerative center that naturally brings disciplines, cultures, and generations together, the university library can expand its role in open culture far beyond sharing institutionally-produced research and data through open repositories. Drawing on the experience of a public polytechnic university, this presentation documents the emergence of a university library as a system of open culture programs and as a place where a speeding culture can stop to dialogue, think, and create: generating collective interactive learning; fostering collaboration with open data; cultivating open conversations and learning ...

The Brief Wondrous Life Of The Syracuse Kindle, Melinda Dermody, Suzanne Preate, Nancy Turner, Scott Warren

Libraries' and Librarians' Publications

In the fall 2009 semester, the Syracuse University Library launched a pilot program to test two Kindle DX e-book readers as content delivery devices. The pilot objectives included exploring additional options for access to curricular resources that are cost-prohibitive and frequently requested by library users, testing a new technology, i.e., Kindle DX, for delivery of ebooks, gauging user reactions to e-book readers, and using Kindle statistics and user feedback to develop or modify services and technologies. Through the pilot, the Library gained practical experience with a new technology and attempted to determine whether an e-book reader loan program would ...

Librarianship In The 21st Century: Lessons In Leadership, Rob Morrison, Jack Fritts Mar 2010

Librarianship In The 21st Century: Lessons In Leadership, Rob Morrison, Jack Fritts

Faculty Publications

Many of the challenges librarians face in the 21st century have existed for years and reflect the nature of higher education and society in the United States. One issue the presenters have observed is that librarians, like many educators, react to rapidly changing systems, pressures, economics, and technologies by “balancing” workloads and budgets and not by deeply reflecting on how to change strategies in order to integrate themselves more fully into academic curricula, prove the library’s value to administrators, and develop meaningful services and resources.

In order to thrive and survive, librarians must be proactive at their institutions in ...

Miner and Sweet are both members of the Illinois Wesleyan GREENetwork and will draw upon their personal experiences in campus environmental efforts for this presentation; they will offer practical ideas for implementing “green” library initiatives that ...

Use Of The Worldcat Collection Analysis Tool To Assess The Statewide Serials Collection In Illinois, Chad E. Buckley Nov 2009

Use Of The Worldcat Collection Analysis Tool To Assess The Statewide Serials Collection In Illinois, Chad E. Buckley

Faculty and Staff Publications – Milner Library

In an era of consistently poor funding for materials budgets, libraries must work to identify the most cost-effective solutions for providing access to information needed by patrons. Consortia play an important role in these solutions for many libraries and can help leverage their buying power to provide widespread access to various publishers’ content at more affordable costs. The CARLI consortium in Illinois formed a Statewide Serials Collection Task Force in 2006 to “investigate various collaborative options related to print and electronic serials collections across the state.” As part of this group's work, the Worldcat Collection Analysis tool, commonly employed ...
