Metadata Implementation For Building Cross-Institutional Repositories: Lessons Learned From The Liberal Arts Scholarly Repository (Lasr), Jane Costanza, R. Cecilia Knight, Hsianghui Liu-Spencer

Jane Costanza

Institutional repositories are an exciting innovation in scholarly communication and liberal arts institutions have a unique opportunity to create repository collections that reflect their tradition. However, the challenges of cost, staffing, infrastructure, standardized metadata, and content recruitment that are part and parcel of developing institutional repositories may be daunting to individual liberal arts institutions. The idea that multiple, like-minded institutions could join forces to share their efforts, unique challenges, and maximize their efficiencies grew into the Liberal Arts Scholarly Repository (LASR). Initial steps in this collaboration included the development of a group mission and a statement of collection policies. Technical ...

Critical Pedagogy In The Classroom: Library Instruction That Gives Voice To Students And Builds A Community Of Scholars, Michelle Reale Jan 2012

Critical Pedagogy In The Classroom: Library Instruction That Gives Voice To Students And Builds A Community Of Scholars, Michelle Reale

Library Faculty Scholarship

When librarians apply critical pedagogy in a classroom, they can both impart knowledge and ignite breakthrough thinking among students. By partnering with professors and decentralizing the power in the classroom, librarians can tap into knowledge that students already possess and encourage them to express their own ideas. This article describes the process in a 200-level literature interpretation course taught primarily to English majors at Arcadia University.


Creating Objectives Collaboratively: Actionable Goals Across The Library System, Jo Angela Oehrli Jan 2012

Creating Objectives Collaboratively: Actionable Goals Across The Library System, Jo Angela Oehrli

LOEX Conference Proceedings 2010

Imagine a room full of librarians and a blank, whiteboard. One librarian asks the group, "What do you want to teach students?" The librarians go beyond articulating instruction in the form of tools ("I teach the library catalog") to writing down ideas about real concepts ("I want students to be better information seekers") that students need to survive in an information-rich world.

How do you know if students learned from your instruction? How can you articulate your goals and assessments together as a library staff? The challenge of creating successful, measurable objectives across a large library system can be difficult ...


Granting Collaboration: Information Literacy For Faculty, Cotina Jones Jan 2012

Granting Collaboration: Information Literacy For Faculty, Cotina Jones

LOEX Conference Proceedings 2010

The initiative to form a working partnership with faculty began when the librarians in O'Kelly Library became acutely aware that our students' were not able to effectively access, evaluate and use information. After devoting years to marketing library services, teaching classes and acquiring new resources, there was little response from the faculty or students.

We asked the question, "What has to happen for us to be able to infuse information literacy into the curriculum and make it important and meaningful?"

This presentation is intended to show C. G. O'Kelly Library's efforts to embed information literacy into the ...

Replacing Old Bridges With New – Stepping Up Student Learning By Rebuilding The Foundation With Faculty-Librarian Collaboration, Kristen L. Motz, Dr. Helen E. Woodman

LOEX Conference Proceedings 2010

Your foundations are set - clear syllabus, collaborative assignments, scheduled library instructions, and excellent faculty-librarian communication - but what about demonstrated learning, updated technologies, and an infusion of instruction energy? Sometimes a librarian needs to partner with faculty to initiate a demolition and reengineering of the collaborative bridge. Our dilemma: Should we patch up an existing assignment or tackle a course reengineering? Using new girders of current learning theory, measurable learning outcomes, concept maps, just-in-time instructions, research consultations, and information literacy assessments, we rebuilt the class. Dig into the foundation with us and explore using these supports to help your collaborative bridges ...

Managing Research Data : A Collaborative Approach, Darren Gibson, Julia Gross, Matthew Wyatt Jan 2012

Managing Research Data : A Collaborative Approach, Darren Gibson, Julia Gross, Matthew Wyatt

ECU Publications 2011

To ensure maximum benefit is achieved from the investigations in a collaborative research network, it is essential that research data is managed effectively. However, there is no set model to follow. Normally an institution will establish its own policy and procedures applicable to their researchers and data. This causes difficulties for researchers sharing data across a collaborative network. Edith Cowan University (ECU) is one of fifteen Australian universities striving to create world-class research capacity and capability through investment in the Collaborative Research Network (CRN) project. The CRN project at ECU aims to accelerate the growth of research activity from 2011 ...
