Digital Wayfinding: A User Study, M Ryan Hess Oct 2015

Digital Wayfinding: A User Study, M Ryan Hess

M Ryan Hess

The DePaul University Richardson Library conducted a study of an interactive, touch-based wayfinding screen in order to determine 1) what specific content needs users desire in digital wayfinding services and 2) are user content needs so broad, a more full-feature experience with access to all library web content would be preferred. The three-phase study included analysis of click analytics data, observations of user interactions and questionnaires targeting user experiences and expectations. The study builds on research at other libraries around point-of-need wayfinding signage and usability of digital information. Phase 1 involved capturing anonymous click analytics of user interactions, over a ...

'Friending' The Library: Social Media Interns Get The Message Out, Pamela Contakos

Pamela Contakos

At MCLA we have sponsored undergraduate student interns who assist with marketing and outreach for the library. Our interns are responsible for the library’s Tumblr, posting weekly about databases, items from the archives, and apps of interest, the library’s Instagram account, and the library’s Facebook account. In addition, they have created videos and hosted social media contests. We will share some of the projects our interns have worked in and talk about best practices in having student run social media.

Thinking Like Your Users – Using Data And Personas To Improve Services At Your Library, Amy Vecchione, Deana Brown

Deana Brown

Do you ever get the feeling a service your library offers could be improved? Do you notice users struggle with the same challenges over and over? You might not need more funding to fix it, just a change in perspective. In this workshop you will acquire real skills and design a persona for your library. Personas are fictional people, but based on data and observations. Using personas will help you make user centered decisions. This workshop will walk participants through the process of creating personas they can apply to specific services their library offers.

Translating Failure Into Success, Deana Brown, Elizabeth Ramsey Aug 2015

Translating Failure Into Success, Deana Brown, Elizabeth Ramsey

Deana Brown

All of us have had to work through life challenges and perhaps even suffered professional setbacks. Whether it was a poorly attended program, a new instructional method that was ineffective, or getting started on professional development requirements, sharing our experiences of failure with each other in a safe and accepting space can be cathartic and informative. See what skeletons we have hiding in our closets, and learn how showing yours the light of day might be the most inspiring connection you make for yourself, your colleagues, and your library!

Knowledge Infrastructures In Science: Data, Diversity, And Digital Libraries, Christine L. Borgman, Darch T. Peter, Sands E. Ashley, Pasquetto V. Irene, Golshan S. Milena, Wallis C. Jillian, Traweek Sharon

Christine L. Borgman

Digital libraries can be deployed at many points throughout the life cycles of scientific research projects from their inception through data collection, analysis, documentation, publication, curation, preservation, and stewardship. Requirements for digital libraries to manage research data vary along many dimensions, including life cycle, scale, research domain, and types and degrees of openness. This article addresses the role of digital libraries in knowledge infrastructures for science, presenting evidence from long-term studies of four research sites. Findings are based on interviews (n=208), ethnographic fieldwork, document analysis, and historical archival research about scientific data practices, conducted over the course of more ...

Dataverse In The Universe Of Data, Christine Borgman Jun 2015

Dataverse In The Universe Of Data, Christine Borgman

Christine L. Borgman

Data repositories are much more than "black boxes" where data go in but may never come out. Rather, they are situated in communities, with contributors, users, reusers, and repository staff who may engage actively or passively with participants. This talk will explore the roles that Dataverse plays – or could play – in individual communities.


Data, Data Everywhere — But How To Manage And Govern?, Christine Borgman Jun 2015

Data, Data Everywhere — But How To Manage And Govern?, Christine Borgman

Christine L. Borgman

Universities are drowning in data, not only data produced by their researchers and students, but also data they collect about their communities. Research data are subject to sharing and retention requirements by funding agencies and journals. Data from course management systems, faculty personnel records, security cameras, and social media are being used as indicators for decision making. This talk will identify some of the challenges faced by universities in managing and governing these complex categories of data. Material is drawn from Big Data, Little Data, No Data: Scholarship in the Networked World (Borgman, 2015, MIT Press) and the UCLA Data ...

China's Global Growth In Social Science Research: Uncovering Evidence From Bibliometric Analyses Of Ssci Publications (1978–2013), Weishu Liu Jun 2015

China's Global Growth In Social Science Research: Uncovering Evidence From Bibliometric Analyses Of Ssci Publications (1978–2013), Weishu Liu

Weishu Liu

The phenomenon of China's rise as an emerging scientific power has been well documented, yet the development of its social science is less explored. Utilizing up-to-date Social Science Citation Index (SSCI) publication data (1978–2013), this paper probes the patterns and dynamics of China's social science research via bibliometric analyses. Our research indicates that despite the national orientation of social science research and the linguistic obstacle of publishing for an international audience, China's publications in the SSCI dataset have been rising in terms of volume, world share, and global ranking. But China is still not yet a ...

Three Classes On Tap: Brewing Library Instruction Through Collaboration, Ashley Dupuy, Chris Sharpe, Eli Arnold May 2015

Three Classes On Tap: Brewing Library Instruction Through Collaboration, Ashley Dupuy, Chris Sharpe, Eli Arnold

Ashley Dupuy

Using group collaboration and team assignments, our library went through a process of trial and error to standardize our library instruction curriculum for undergraduate one-shot classes. We moved from a disorganized system to a standard curriculum based on ACRL standards with mutually-determined learning objectives and three pre-defined class types. In the process we developed an “instruction tool kit” to share information, and workshops to train all instruction librarians. In this presentation, we will walk participants through our process and experience and encourage them to explore new ways of approaching instruction programs at their home institutions. http://libguides.kennesaw.edu/toolkit


Building A Physical Library In The Digital Age, Jennifer A. W. Joe Apr 2015

Building A Physical Library In The Digital Age, Jennifer A. W. Joe

Jennifer Wright Joe

The digital age is changing the abilities and offerings of libraries of all types. However, there is still the notion that a physical place we call the library should exist. For most institutions that have had brick and mortar structures for decades (if not centuries), this dichotomy is fairly easy to navigate. However, what do you do when your library is only 6 years old? Drawing on her experience as a branch campus librarian for the last two years, the speaker explores the challenges as well as the rewards of growing a physical library in the digital age.

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 ...

Expertise And Service: A Call To Action, Rebecca Butler Mar 2015

Expertise And Service: A Call To Action, Rebecca Butler

Rev. Rebecca Butler

Although theological librarianship occurs most often at seminaries or graduate level theology programs, there are also librarians working with theology on an undergraduate level. In many cases, these librarians are responsible for additional subject areas and may or may not have any theological expertise or training. While the two groups do the same types of work, they are doing so in different ways. To explore these commonalities and differences, a study was conducted among undergraduate theology liaisons and those results were compared with the literature and data regarding graduate level theological librarianship. One hundred ten undergraduate librarians responded to a ...
