Institutional Repositories And The Humanities: A New Collaborative Model For Scholarly Publishing, Laura M. Ruschman Apr 2015

Institutional Repositories And The Humanities: A New Collaborative Model For Scholarly Publishing, Laura M. Ruschman

ASIS&T Student Chapter Events Archive

Presentation by Laura Ruschman at the Symposium on Information and Technology in the Arts and Humanities (April 22 & 23, 2015). The Symposium was sponsored by the Special Interest Groups for the Arts and Humanities (SIG AH) and Visualization, Images, and Sound (SIG VIS) of the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T).

Traditionally, academic library systems have used institutional repositories to preserve, collect, and provide access to scholarly work produced by those comprising their respective university community. This places libraries near the end of the total information lifecycle, acting in the roles of secondary distributors and collectors. By better utilizing institutional repository software, academic libraries are able to go beyond these roles and instead act as a participant in the creation and distribution of scholarly work. Institutional repositories now have the ability to turn libraries into digital publishers. This is particularly important for humanities scholars, a group that is still largely dependent on the traditional publishing model for sharing scholarly information. By embracing institutional repositories and digital publishing, humanities scholars will be encouraged to reconsider what defines a scholarly work in the 21st century, which may then lead to new methods for creating and sharing scholarly information in a digital environment.

Laura Ruschman is currently finishing her Master's in Library and Information Science from Wayne State University, in Detroit, MI, with a specialization in Digital Content Management; she will be graduating in May 2015. While earning her MLIS, Laura interned with the Wayne State University Press and the Digital Publishing department of the Wayne State Library System, where she helped digitize and manage scholarly journals in Wayne State's institutional repository (Digital Commons), and thereafter became intensely interested in the intersection between academic libraries, digital content, and scholarly publishing. Laura holds bachelor degrees in English Literature and Journalism from Miami University, and a Certificate in Publishing from New York ...


The Impacts Of Google Digitization Projects On Libraries, J Jasmine Chmiel Apr 2015

The Impacts Of Google Digitization Projects On Libraries, J Jasmine Chmiel

ASIS&T Student Chapter Events Archive

Presentation by J. Jasmine Chmiel at the Symposium on Information and Technology in the Arts and Humanities (April 22 & 23, 2015). The Symposium was sponsored by the Special Interest Groups for the Arts and Humanities (SIG AH) and Visualization, Images, and Sound (SIG VIS) of the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T).

In 2003, Google embarked on the largest scale mass-digitization project that has ever been attempted, called Google Print, later re-named Google Books. Some libraries have partnered with Google in the mass digitization process, allowing them to develop their digital collections with an expedience and efficiency that they would unlikely achieve without Google’s collaboration; others are keeping their distance, for fear of legal and copyright issues. All are concerned about quality control issues, and how to determine whether electronic resources are meeting users’ needs. Many librarians fear that Google won’t meet the exacting standards of librarians and archivists to ensure that rare materials are adequately preserved. Some also fear for their livelihoods – if e-books and scholarly materials are so easily accessible via the Internet, who will visit actual libraries and value librarian expertise? What ...
