A Model For Quality Education To Support Stem Student Success, Sandy Avila, Buenaventura Basco Jul 2019

A Model For Quality Education To Support Stem Student Success, Sandy Avila, Buenaventura Basco

Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

In an evolving academic library environment, the duties of the subject liaison librarian are ever changing and being adapted as new responsibilities are added year after year. The Science Librarian and Engineering & Computer Science Librarian at the University of Central Florida are taking a model-based approach to handling these changes in STEM discipline support. During this session we will cover strategies for improving STEM student success based on a model for collaborative instruction, creative outreach, and cooperative service. This “STEM Team” based approach involves working closely on STEM based initiatives by facilitating and organizing related events and workshops which may ...

Data Management Plans And Dmptool, Stacy L. Winchester Jul 2019

Data Management Plans And Dmptool, Stacy L. Winchester

Faculty and Staff Publications

Many federal and private funders require a Data Management Plan, or DMP, as part of the grant application process. The University Libraries at the University of South Carolina provide a number of resources and services to faculty and students who need to write plans, including online guides, sample DMPs, and consultations. This presentation, from a workshop titled “Data Management Plans and DMPTool,” walks researchers through the history and components of Data Management Plans and exposes them to available resources, including DMPTool, an online tool that helps researchers write plans that meet specific funder requirements.

Climate Change Conversations In Libraries: Stabilizing Ourselves And Our Communities, Madeleine K. Charney Jun 2019

Climate Change Conversations In Libraries: Stabilizing Ourselves And Our Communities, Madeleine K. Charney

Madeleine K. Charney

In this American Library Association preconference in Washington, D.C., a group of ~35 librarians explored the “wicked problem” of climate change in a convivial World Café setting. Together we faced our fears and identified our strengths, leadership and creativity in relationship to climate disruption. Because this disruption has significant impacts on our communities’ mental health, we learned a variety of practices to ground ourselves and find deeper meaning day-to-day. From this place of stability, we can better educate and serve our patrons -- now and in more troubled times.


I Search: A Reflection On The Importance Of A Personal Connection, Eric Shannon, Leslie Inglis, Tracy Mendham Jun 2019

I Search: A Reflection On The Importance Of A Personal Connection, Eric Shannon, Leslie Inglis, Tracy Mendham

New England Library Instruction Group

This session, led by two librarians and an adjunct faculty member, described the benefits of replacing a traditional research paper with an I Search paper (a more informal first person research narrative) for students taking a first year inquiry course. An I Search paper facilitates student learning by encouraging students to select a topic that piques their interest and places the focus on students’ personal research journeys. Although this assignment was designed for a semester-long credit-bearing course, we discussed ways to incorporate aspects of this assignment into a library one-shot.


No Zombies Here!​: An Inquiry-Based Learning Approach To An Embedded Librarian Project, Sam Boss, Kristi J. Castleberry Jun 2019

No Zombies Here!​: An Inquiry-Based Learning Approach To An Embedded Librarian Project, Sam Boss, Kristi J. Castleberry

New England Library Instruction Group

Since 2017, a library director and English professor have been collaborating on an embedded librarian project for a required Critical Thinking seminar. Our guiding concept is inquiry-based learning, and we have seen students connect with information literacy more deeply as we encourage them to explore information resources and to consider what scholarly conversation means to them. Our goal is to seamlessly blend elements of the ACRL Framework with the learning objectives and content of the seminar through hands-on activities related to research and writing assignments. Tying the Framework to ongoing projects has resulted in a higher level of engagement and ...


Decolonizing Databases: A Scalable Critical Pedagogy Activity, Emery Shriver, Lori Dubois Jun 2019

Decolonizing Databases: A Scalable Critical Pedagogy Activity, Emery Shriver, Lori Dubois

New England Library Instruction Group

Inspired by Safiya Umoja Noble’s Algorithms of Oppression, essays and lesson plans in Critical Library Pedagogy (Nicole Pagowsky and Kelly McElroy, eds.), and the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, this presentation described a critical pedagogy activity that interrogates systems of oppression in library research tools and challenges students to reflect on the emotional aspects of their research experience. We discussed how we have modified the activity for different courses and disciplines, classroom settings, and class session lengths. This activity is suitable for librarians who are beginning to consider how to incorporate critical pedagogy into their teaching.


Cataloging Accessibility Features, Kathryn Lybarger Jun 2019

Cataloging Accessibility Features, Kathryn Lybarger

Kathryn Lybarger

In 2018, new fields were added to the MARC standard to encode accessibility requirements, features, deficiencies, and hazards. In this presentation, we look at those new fields, and examine how we might use them when cataloging various types of accessible (or inaccessible) library materials.

Leveraging Your Institution’S Culture Of Research To Strengthen And Promote Your Institutional Repository, Karen Ramsden Jun 2019

Leveraging Your Institution’S Culture Of Research To Strengthen And Promote Your Institutional Repository, Karen Ramsden

Karen Ramsden

As a university’s research status changes, so must the outreach efforts and the mission associated with its institutional repository. This presentation will focus on the current culture of research at Montclair State University,a public research university located in Montclair, New Jersey, and the second largest university in the State, and how an institutional repository has been embedded into that research culture. Three years ago, Montclair State was first recognized as a Research 3 Doctoral university, and, in February of 2019, the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education designated Montclair State as a Research 2 Doctoral institution, High ...


Quick Understanding Our Engineering Faculty Research Needs Using Topic Modeling, Qianjin Zhang, Kari Kozak Jun 2019

Quick Understanding Our Engineering Faculty Research Needs Using Topic Modeling, Qianjin Zhang, Kari Kozak

University of Iowa Libraries Staff Publications

As engineering librarians, we recognize that understanding our faculty research needs is an ongoing endeavor. It is a continuing learning process throughout our time serving engineering faculty with diverse research interests. However, the time-intensive learning process may not efficiently help engineering librarians quickly develop an overall view of the changing and evolving departments. It’s also challenging for early-career librarians who are new to engineering librarianship or do not have relevant subject background.

In order to tackle the problem, the authors explored research topics of our faculty’s work using a topic modeling technique called Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA) which ...


Non-English Materials For The English Speaker : European Languages, Erin Gow Jun 2019

Non-English Materials For The English Speaker : European Languages, Erin Gow

Erin Gow

So many legal materials are in languages other than English worldwide, that it is inevitable that most of us will need to find or access one of these documents at some point. Foreign, comparative, and international law (FCIL) librarians often work with materials in languages in which they are not fluent, and can provide useful ideas and insight for the non-FCIL specialist faced with this type of research. This portion of a 2019 AALL webinar titled "Non-English Materials for the English Speaker" focuses on European languages, and provides practical guidance in finding English translations of European laws, tips and techniques ...

The Three C’S Of Transforming Internal Instructional Practices: Contemplative, Critical, Community Oriented”., Brooke Duffy, Lisa M. Rose-Wiles, Martha Loesch

Lisa M Rose-Wiles

The role of Contemplative Pedagogy (CP) in cultivating mental health and developing the “whole person” is increasingly being explored across higher education institutions in reference to both students and instructors. There have been nascent attempts to explore CP’s benefits for academic librarians, but so far there have not been holistic discussions about using CP as a philosophy for transforming culture within information literacy programs or connecting CP with institutional mission statements. This discussion will focus on the interconnections between contemplative pedagogy, the ACRL Framework, critical librarianship, and information literacy communities of practice. In addition to laying out theoretical correlations ...

Reinventing The Wheel: Comparing Family Friendly Vegas And Adult Friendly Vegas Revenue Growth, James Vaughn May 2019

Reinventing The Wheel: Comparing Family Friendly Vegas And Adult Friendly Vegas Revenue Growth, James Vaughn

International Conference on Gambling & Risk Taking

The one constant for Las Vegas is change, always looking for the Next Big Thing™. In the 1990s, Las Vegas engaged in a grand experiment: roller coasters, amusement parks, family pools and shows. In the 2000s, Las Vegas reinvented itself back to its roots: condo not amusement parks, sensual not swashbuckling shows, topless European ultra-pools not kiddie pools. While the house always wins, did the casinos of the 1990s or 2000s beat the ultimate house, going beyond nominal revenue growth into the jackpot of real revenue growth?

Using Focus Group Feedback: How The Uvu Fulton Library Incorporated Feedback To Make Improvements And Reach More Students, Annie Smith, Mary Stephens May 2019

Using Focus Group Feedback: How The Uvu Fulton Library Incorporated Feedback To Make Improvements And Reach More Students, Annie Smith, Mary Stephens

Annie Smith

In 2018 the UVU Fulton Library partnered with Institutional Research to run a Library Research Focus Group. They had 15 participants in two sessions. Students gave feedback on what was stressful about research, where they looked for help, and what barriers they experienced asking for help in the library. Using detailed qualitative data the Fulton Library addressed student concerns in instruction, wayfinding, and marketing reference services differently to tackle students’ needs. 


Automating The Authority Control Process, Stacey Wolf May 2019

Automating The Authority Control Process, Stacey Wolf

OVGTSL 2019

Authority control is an important part of cataloging since it helps provide consistent access to names, titles, subjects, and genre/forms. There are a variety of methods for providing authority control, ranging from manual, time-consuming processes to automated processes. However, the automated processes often seem out of reach for small libraries when it comes to using a pricey vendor or needing a cataloger with particular expertise. This presentation will introduce several ideas on how to handle authority control using a variety of tools, both paid and free. The presenter will describe how their library handles authority control; compare vendors and ...


Rda Adoption In U.S. Public Libraries, Sevim Mccutcheon May 2019

Rda Adoption In U.S. Public Libraries, Sevim Mccutcheon

OVGTSL 2019

This study surveyed the state of knowledge about, and adoption of, RDA among American public library catalogers. In 2017 an online survey request was e-mailed to 4000 public libraries for the person most responsible for cataloging. Over 300 libraries responded. Data collected nationally included geographic location, education level, training history and needs, library size and budget. Evidence points to demographic factors having a strong influence on levels of RDA knowledge, with a dramatic urban/rural divide. While a majority of catalogers know about RDA, their working knowledge about it differs substantially depending on whether they work in rural or urban ...

Little Fish In A Big Pond : A Kentucky Public Library Joins Naco, Victoria Greenwell, Kristin Anderson, Robert Collins

OVGTSL 2019

Many public libraries undervalue the need for good authority control and since NACO has vastly more academic libraries than public libraries, many of our authority needs may be going unanswered. Our library catalog alone has tens of thousands of local authorities that need to be created. How many does yours have?

This presentation will cover the reasons this library chose to join NACO, as well as its long and error-filled path to get its application approved, a story that is humorous in its coincidence, misunderstandings and just sheer, dumb luck. We will also touch on the extensive training involved and ...
