Digital Storytelling In The Library: Supporting The Multimodal Assignment From Start To Finish, Elizabeth Andrejasich Gibes, Robert L. Nunez Ii Oct 2015

Digital Storytelling In The Library: Supporting The Multimodal Assignment From Start To Finish, Elizabeth Andrejasich Gibes, Robert L. Nunez Ii

Elizabeth Andrejasich Gibes

This poster explores the security, privacy and ethical considerations confronted in supporting digital media courses. Of particular importance to this presentation is the increased role digital storytelling and video composition plays in student learning. Supporting this shift in curriculum, librarians have the opportunity to facilitate an intelligent and integrated move toward the use of these digital tools in classrooms and participate in educating students on media literacy. Librarians supporting the Digital Media Studio at Marquette University share their techniques in educating students on intellectual property issues and in navigating security and privacy problems with shared equipment.


Knowledge Mapping Tools: Visualizing Research, Crystal L. Renfro, Elisabeth Shields Oct 2015

Knowledge Mapping Tools: Visualizing Research, Crystal L. Renfro, Elisabeth Shields

Crystal L Renfro

Complex research projects can be difficult to conceptualize and communicate clearly because of the number of concepts involved and the relationships among them. We will look at visual tools including concept maps, mind maps and argument maps which help advanced students, faculty, and librarians as they move from the stage of envisioning a research idea into the early stages of fashioning the product.

Early Days With An Ir: Identifying And Adding Content, Michele Gibney Sep 2015

Early Days With An Ir: Identifying And Adding Content, Michele Gibney

Michele Gibney

When I started as an IR manager at Nova Southeastern University (September 2014), the IR had been live for 6 months and one of the in process pilot projects was a journal with 219 back issues dating to 1990. The journal was still on the demonstration site when I started. In this presentation I will discuss the ways in which I interacted with the journal staff, the full migration of all issues and the ensuing projects that have developed due to the primary editor’s interest. These include a conference, book publishing and four additional journals. One of the most ...

Collection Microclimates – Citation Study Of Journal Usage Differences At Department And Research Group Level, Ian Mccullough Mar 2015

Collection Microclimates – Citation Study Of Journal Usage Differences At Department And Research Group Level, Ian Mccullough

Ian McCullough

Citations from journal articles and dissertations from the Department of Polymer Science (DPS) at the University of Akron from 2006–2011 were examined and journals ranked in order of usage frequency. Journal usage of dissertations and articles was also ranked within research groups. 85 dissertations and 464 faculty publications that included 378 publications from 16 dissertation advisors were examined. Citations to 1422 journals were counted and recorded. Findings demonstrate that individual groups vary wildly in journal usage representing microclimates for collection development purposes.

Secret Service: Governor Macquarie’S Aboriginal War Of 1816, Michael K. Organ Mar 2015

Secret Service: Governor Macquarie’S Aboriginal War Of 1816, Michael K. Organ

Michael Organ

Detailed analysis of Governor Lachlan Macquarie’s punitive actions against the Aboriginal population of New South Wales in 1816 reveals the extent of war engaged in by local military forces and the colonial authorities, along with a corresponding cover-up of those activities and outcomes to both the local community and authorities in England. This analysis has implications for our present day reading of Australian history and the ongoing debate over recognition of the so-called Forgotten War (Australian Aboriginal War), especially in light of the ANZAC and World War I centennial commemorations of 2015-18. The use of unpublished archival resources is ...

Embed And Engage! Delivering A Digitisation Program At The University Of Wollongong Library, Rebecca Daly, Michael Organ Feb 2015

Embed And Engage! Delivering A Digitisation Program At The University Of Wollongong Library, Rebecca Daly, Michael Organ

Michael Organ

The digital environment is growing rapidly, through ubiquitous and increasingly powerful personal computing devices, and the demand for information to be accessible. Libraries and archives, as traditional providers and storehouses of content, are adapting to this changing environment by adopting new and innovative digital content delivery mechanisms to unmask their special collections. In 2012, the University of Wollongong Library implemented a comprehensive digitisation program for its unique archival and research collections. Film, photographs, documents, artworks and audio are being made available online through several platforms and delivery tools in combination, complementing the increasingly important role played by the library in ...


Warriors Without A War, Michael Organ Feb 2015

Warriors Without A War, Michael Organ

Michael Organ

Opposition to the naming by the Western Australian Barnett government of a prominent Perth city square after Noongar resistance warrior Yagan highlights the failure to recognise the Aboriginal War of 1788–1901. Whilst many view the place naming as an honour, others see it as an insult to a man murdered in 1833 for opposing the brutality anddispossession of European settlement. Yagan was a warrior at war. At the time of his capture in 1832 local settler Robert Lyon argued for his treatment as a prisoner of war. ‘What war?’ you may ask. There is no Aboriginal War officially recognised ...

Managing Grant Publication Mandates: An Interoperable, Implementation Model, Michael Organ, Ann O'Hea

Michael Organ

How do we measure performance? How do we report it? For universities, performance can be measured in a variety of ways - the number of students enrolled, the number of graduates, theses completions, research grant funding obtained, research outputs in the form of publications, prestige attained by staff and the institution as a whole, and reputation. Some of these performance measures are easily quantifiable, others less so, e.g. prestige and reputation. And of course performance measurement regimes change with time, such that what was considered an appropriate measure at one time may be deemed no longer relevant or even desirable ...


Match That Photo! Embracing Analog Methods To Enhance Digital Collections, Erin Passehl-Stoddart Jan 2015

Match That Photo! Embracing Analog Methods To Enhance Digital Collections, Erin Passehl-Stoddart

Erin Passehl Stoddart

When creating digital collections, different methods and workflows may be considered depending on the size, amount of metadata, and who will be staffing parts of the digitization process. Feeling overwhelmed with 500+ photographs with minimal metadata, I employed an analog tactic: playing a card matching game with printed photographs. Through matching, metadata was enhanced and locations identified more efficiently than staring at a computer screen. This lightning talk will present alternative ways to employ visual literacy tactics to provide a creative, fun way to involve students and staff in creating and enhancing large digital collections.


Integrated Service Spaces: New Ways Of Assessing Collaboration., Hector Escobar, Heidi Gauder Jan 2015

Integrated Service Spaces: New Ways Of Assessing Collaboration., Hector Escobar, Heidi Gauder

Heidi Gauder

Many academic libraries have participated in the growing trend in creating unified service desks, where users visit one desk to get help from a variety of library and other campus services. The University of Dayton’s Roesch Library, however, is exploring a different model. It is piloting a service that lends itself to true integration with external departments. Although unified service desks offer the convenience of one-stop assistance, the various units may still act as silos. Service integration facilitates better cross-training and less confusion for students who may need multiple forms of help in one common area. The library began ...

All Majors Welcome: Library Internships And Career Development, Heidi Gauder, Katy Kelly, Colleen Hoelscher

Heidi Gauder

The academic library can play a crucial role in experiential learning, particularly through student internships. This library is one of the larger units on campus to employ student workers and we spend many hours training them to handle questions at service desks, assist with cataloging functions, help digitize materials, and a variety of other tasks. In 2011, we built on that idea of student workers and partnered with the University Honors Program to offer customized experiential learning through paid internships. These internships allowed us to spend additional time with students in preparation for their chosen careers or graduate school, helped ...
