Thoughts On Implementing "Generous Thinking" As A #Scholcomm Librarian, Arthur J. Boston Oct 2019

Thoughts On Implementing "Generous Thinking" As A #Scholcomm Librarian, Arthur J. Boston

Arthur J. Boston

A third year scholarly communication librarian will discuss a reckoning with his professional mission in closing the gap between the work done on the campus and the interests of the community around it. This topic is inspired in large part by Kathleen Fitzpatrick's groundbreaking book, Generous Thinking: A Radical Approach to Saving the University (2019), which argues Universities should reorient themselves toward the public good through more direct engagement with that public and more constructive collaboration within the academy itself. In this presentation, practical steps will be discussed for working toward this goal which can be undertaken by institutions ...


Access To Humanities Scholarship Through Public Search Engines, Jody C. Fagan, Malia Willey Nov 2018

Access To Humanities Scholarship Through Public Search Engines, Jody C. Fagan, Malia Willey

Libraries

While research has shown search engine coverage of science and social science scholarship rivals traditional library databases, the coverage or utility of public search engines for the humanities needs further exploration. This presentation will report results from at least two empirical research studies that investigated access to humanities scholarship via public search engines (e.g. Google, Google Scholar, Google Books, Microsoft Academic). We will propose additional research ideas that we hope will inspire future studies.

Diving Into The University Knowledge Community: Navigating The Expanded Role Of The Metadata Librarian, Sai Deng

Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

Metadata librarians' engaging in the university knowledge community is becoming a trend in recent years. In preparing for this change, it can be challenging for the metadata librarians to step out of the "back room", engage in scholarly communication and actively participate in the university knowledge community. This presentation discusses the shifting environment, the required changes for the metadata librarians such as developing professional and technical competency, acquiring new knowledge and skills and getting into the new world to be more connected to students, faculty and researchers, and various factors that will affect the situation.

Altmetrics Concepts And Practices, Janice Winkler Dec 2015

Altmetrics Concepts And Practices, Janice Winkler

Western Libraries Presentations

Researchers are often asked to demonstrate their productivity and the impact of their research when they apply for funding, as well as when they go up for promotion and tenure. One of the ways they do this is by using traditional bibliometrics. Librarians, publishers, and institutions are other stakeholders with sometimes widely varying use cases for research impact metrics. Unfortunately, some traditional research impact metrics have been identified as barriers to open access initiatives, including Scholarship@Western.

Altmetrics provide an alternative or complement to traditional metrics. They generally use information available on the web to determine how research output is ...


Introducing Undergraduates To Open Access And The Power Of Collaboration Between Scholarly Communications And Instruction Librarians, Kristin Laughtin-Dunker, Annie Knight Apr 2015

Introducing Undergraduates To Open Access And The Power Of Collaboration Between Scholarly Communications And Instruction Librarians, Kristin Laughtin-Dunker, Annie Knight

Library Presentations, Posters, and Videos

Undergraduates are often left out of conversations surrounding open access. While they may not share the same concerns about publishing and prestige as faculty and graduate students, they do consume vast amounts of information, and thus can benefit just as much as those farther in their academic careers by knowing how to find, evaluate, and use open access resources. This presentation highlights a successful collaboration between the presenters in their respective roles as scholarly communications librarian and course developer to create and implement curriculum for a 3-unit information literacy course to teach undergraduate students about open access principles. Once the ...


Library As Publisher: Are You Ready To Support Your Community By Assisting In Content Creation?, Teresa A. Fishel, Jacki Betsworth Mar 2015

Library As Publisher: Are You Ready To Support Your Community By Assisting In Content Creation?, Teresa A. Fishel, Jacki Betsworth

Teresa A. Fishel

A growing role for all types of libraries is to enable content creation by members of their community. One type of role is by “publishing” or distributing that work so that it is available for others. Whether publishing an electronic journal or book or supporting authors for traditional publishing, what is the role libraries could or should be taking? While many academic libraries now host student and faculty journals, what about monographs? Some academic libraries are now exploring how to support faculty interested in producing OA textbooks. A recent article in American Libraries (“Wanna write a good one? Library as ...


Scholarly Communication As A Tool For Social Justice And Diversity, Charlotte Roh, Emily Drabinski, Harrison Inefuku Mar 2015

Scholarly Communication As A Tool For Social Justice And Diversity, Charlotte Roh, Emily Drabinski, Harrison Inefuku

Charlotte Roh

Countless studies and personal narratives have demonstrated that cultural, racial, and gender bias influence important aspects of academia, including traditional book and journal publishing. Scholarly communications and LIS publishing can challenge the traditional modes of publishing both in format and in content. Panelists discussed their work in this area, addressing topics like race, culture, sexuality, and gender in formats like print books, online journals, and institutional repositories.

Elements Of Successful Online Journal Publishing, Dillon Wackerman, R Philip Reynolds Jan 2015

Elements Of Successful Online Journal Publishing, Dillon Wackerman, R Philip Reynolds

Fondren Library Research

At the Center for Digital Scholarship (CDS) at Stephen F. Austin State University (SFASU), we have discovered that there are many complex details to launching a successful online journal-publishing program. In our lead role at SFASU, we have streamlined implementation to make this a relatively straightforward process for the journal managers and editors.

Most of the journal editors with whom we currently work are experienced authors and reviewers, but they rely upon us to assist them with the design, implementation and editorial processes. Following this, we have found it beneficial to provide comprehensive and personalized customer support and training. Some ...


Ripple Effect: Etds, Workflows, And Policies One Year After "A Bigger Splash", Todd Bruns, Stacey Knight-Davis Jul 2014

Ripple Effect: Etds, Workflows, And Policies One Year After "A Bigger Splash", Todd Bruns, Stacey Knight-Davis

Faculty Research & Creative Activity

Since 2008 EIU has been digitizing ETDs and making them available via the library catalog, I-Share (the state of IL consortia catalog), and WorldCat. It was only after ETDs were included in the institutional repository (The Keep) that the majority of faculty became fully aware of how accessible these theses had become. This dawning realization led to important conversations with faculty and other stakeholders about concerns regarding publishing, grant approval, and patents. Following these discussions new embargo policies and workflows were developed. In this presentation, we will provide statistics showing increased access to ETDs due to the repository, and describe ...

“‘Why Does Google Scholar Sometimes Ask For Money?’ Leveraging The Economics Of Information And Scholarly Communication Processes To Enrich Instruction.”, Scott A. Warren, Kim Duckett May 2008

“‘Why Does Google Scholar Sometimes Ask For Money?’ Leveraging The Economics Of Information And Scholarly Communication Processes To Enrich Instruction.”, Scott A. Warren, Kim Duckett

Libraries' and Librarians' Publications

Librarians at North Carolina State University have developed useful techniques for enhancing information literacy instruction through the systematic incorporation of concepts pertaining to scholarly communication and the economics surrounding information. This presentation describes ways to leveraging such concepts as the Deep Web, Google Scholar, the nature of scholarly communication, and the inflated costs of journal subscriptions to contextualize hands-on instruction in the use of library resources. Assessment data from open-ended quizzes and surveys positively reflects students’ attitudes towards this instruction and exposes the impact of such instruction on student understanding about how research is made available on the Web.

Developing Effective Scholarly Communication Advocates: The Experiences Of Three University Librarians In Developing Scholarly Communication Programs, Sara N. Fuchs Nov 2007

Developing Effective Scholarly Communication Advocates: The Experiences Of Three University Librarians In Developing Scholarly Communication Programs, Sara N. Fuchs

University Library Faculty Presentations

Libraries are broadening their involvement in the scholarly communication process by advocating author rights and open-access publishing, as well as providing researchers with digital services, such as institutional repositories and e-publishing programs. Academic librarians are in a good position to help raise awareness on their campuses of important scholarly communication training and outreach programs. By training those who work most closely with faculty, libraries are more likely to develop effective scholarly communication advocates. Thus prepared, librarians and library staff can better inform faculty members about their individual and collective options regarding scholarly communication issues.
