Key Stakeholders, Scholarly Activities And Your Institutional Repository: Working Together To Strengthen The Culture Of Research At Your Institution, Karen Ramsden Jun 2019

Key Stakeholders, Scholarly Activities And Your Institutional Repository: Working Together To Strengthen The Culture Of Research At Your Institution, 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 ...


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

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

Faculty Scholarship

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 ...

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?

Part Of Our Story: Community Building And The Institutional Repository, Patricia Lombardi, Sam Simas

Library Staff Publications, Presentations & Journal Articles

Institutional repositories act as hubs of shared cultural memory and heritage and possess untapped potential in their breadth and reach. In an effort to realize this potential, we are activating our institutional repository as a platform to inform the community, both at Bryant and in Rhode Island, of the diverse array of works (archival, creative, and scholarly) produced by our University students, faculty, and staff. During this talk, we will highlight some of the key collections in DigitalCommons@Bryant University, as well as how those collections came into existence. We will give tips that will empower you to open dialogues ...

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 May 2019

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 ...


Opening Keynote: Storytelling & Power In Technical Services, Hannah Buckland May 2019

Opening Keynote: Storytelling & Power In Technical Services, Hannah Buckland

OVGTSL 2019

Stories—as well as language and words themselves—articulate value, identifying what is significant about our histories and our relationships. In this way, storytelling is a form of power, a way of organizing the world. Technical services work, in turn, does more than create, locate, or describe; it also contributes to an ongoing story libraries communicate to users, a story about how something came to be, a story about power dynamics, and a story of how something is connected to everything.


Skipping Stones: The Ripple Effect Of Collaborating With A Center For Teaching And Learning, Clinton K. Baugess, Kerri Odess-Harnish May 2019

Skipping Stones: The Ripple Effect Of Collaborating With A Center For Teaching And Learning, Clinton K. Baugess, Kerri Odess-Harnish

Musselman Library Staff Publications

Collaborating with your campus teaching and learning center is a key way to center the library at the heart of conversations on creative pedagogy and student learning. Librarians at a small college library will share how their collaboration has enabled their information literacy program to ripple across campus – expanding their teaching practice beyond the usual one-shot and shifting faculty perceptions of librarians as classroom partners. The presenters will describe how they have contributed their expertise to teaching center programming and administered a series of center-funded faculty grants for information literacy, digital literacy, and teaching with archival materials.


Promoting Discipline Specific Literacy For Law & Paralegal Studies Students: Libguides As Transitional & Professional Tools, Marissa Moran, Kimberly Abrams May 2019

Promoting Discipline Specific Literacy For Law & Paralegal Studies Students: Libguides As Transitional & Professional Tools, Marissa Moran, Kimberly Abrams

Publications and Research

Developing LibGuides for Law and Paralegal Studies students at New York City College of Technology arose from the following question: how do we change the way legal studies students think of the Library as a resource to better assist them in their transition to college level-research and a future career as a paralegal. At the heart of this question is the importance of discipline-specific information literacy at the college and professional levels. Many students have difficulty with locating relevant information to complete course assignments partly because library resources are both fragmented and cohesive. Thus, while part of the transition to ...


Flexi Discs: The Audio Format That Time Forgot And Remembered Again, Junior R. Tidal May 2019

Flexi Discs: The Audio Format That Time Forgot And Remembered Again, Junior R. Tidal

Publications and Research

Flexi discs, also known as phonosheets and Soundsheets, are “flexible” plastic sheets that can be played on turntables. This audio format was used for a wide variety of purposes including promotional materials, giveaways, and inserts into magazines, stemming from their origins in playable chocolate discs in the early 1900s (Parks, 2018). At one point in time it was a $9 million dollar business, with the U.S. government as one of the top users of the technology (Penchansky, 1979). Their disposable nature, weight, ability to print directly on material, and affordable manufacturing made the flexi disc an alternative to vinyl ...

Diversity & Inclusion Practices-The Impact Of Preserving Diverse Voices Presentation.Pptx, Kryslynn Collazo

Kryslynn Collazo

The University of Central Florida Libraries Special Collection and University Archives have partnered with the Central Florida community to ensure changing the narrative surrounding diverse groups. This presentation will describe how the processing of two distinct collections have led to a deeper understanding of the efforts being taken in shrinking the divide of barriers through community involvement and education. The presenter will discuss the necessity to collect and preserve documents about diverse ...


Awareness Of Emotions Leads To Self-Efficacy Among College Students, Amy Lee, Emily M. Delacruz May 2019

Awareness Of Emotions Leads To Self-Efficacy Among College Students, Amy Lee, Emily M. Delacruz

Publications and Research

Self-efficacy is one’s belief in their own ability to succeed in a particular situation or accomplish a task (Bandura, 1977). Previous research has shown that the effort one puts into achieving goals, coping abilities, and behavior in the face of opposition are all heavily influenced by efficacy beliefs. Self reflection and knowledge of inner feelings, areas in which one excel, areas in which one do poorly, and areas in which one need to improve aid in the establishment of goals (Bandura, 1977 & Cervone, 2004). Inner feelings are bound to occur when one make sense of what one can and cannot do, thus these emotional entities are important to make sense of who we are and aid in self-efficacy. Research has shown that while both negative and positive emotions increase in prevalence during a single moment, emotional experience becomes more stable with aging (Carstensen, 2011). Theories of adult development argues that there are individual differences and variability in emotional development (Carstensen, 2011 & Erikson, 1950). This present study assess the emotional development of participants, through means of scales and narratives, and determines if there is a correlation between a participant’s emotional development and self-efficacy, through self-reflection of their perceived strengths and weaknesses in both an interpersonal and academic setting. The hypothesis, If there is an increase in emotional awareness in an individual, then said individual will have an increase in self-efficacy because the individual’s strengths and weaknesses can be identified through self-reflection, was put to test and the results proved the hypothesis true; there is a positive correlation between emotional awareness and self-efficacy. This study provided the foundation for future ...

Elevating Access: Transitioning From Oclc Discovery To Eds Health, Tiffney Gipson, Lauren E. Robinson May 2019

Elevating Access: Transitioning From Oclc Discovery To Eds Health, Tiffney Gipson, Lauren E. Robinson

Lauren E. Robinson

Background: Discovery services are increasingly popular within the library community because of the users’ ability to conduct simply searches and receive unified results. Five years ago, the University of Louisville Libraries converted from Voyager to OCLC Discovery. In that timeframe, Kornhauser Health Sciences Library witnessed a rise in user dissatisfaction, in addition to an increase in time spent by librarians solving access issues.

Description: Since the transition from Voyager to OCLC Discovery, Kornhauser Library recognized that the OCLC product did not meet the needs of health sciences users. The lack of medical terminology and taxonomies provided a unique challenge for ...

Grima: Faster Cataloging Using Apis, Kathryn Lybarger

Kathryn Lybarger

Alma may seem like just a regular web page, but there is another way to communicate with it: the API! In this talk, attendees will be briefly introduced to APIs (and Alma's API in particular) and the Grima software which can be used to speed up various cataloging tasks in Alma. Some of these tasks include: displaying records for printing, making changes to records by scanning in barcodes one at a time, editing sets of records, and creating boundwiths. Grima is free and open source, and includes many simple scripts which can be modified to suit your needs.

When asked about your work, what do you say? Technical services staff make things happen behind the curtain, so to speak. Communicating the value of that work to a variety of stakeholders, especially in light of shrinking budgets and shifting demands is more important than ever. This facilitated discussion will provide an introduction to the art of elevator pitches and prompts to get you started.
