Framing Collaboration: Archives, Irs, And General Collections, Amy Cooper Cary, Michelle Sweetser, Scott Mandernack, Tara Baillargeon

Library Faculty Research and Publications

Collaborative collecting highlights the opportunity for liaison librarians and archivists in academic libraries to develop an integrated and holistic approach to the successful collection of library materials. Yet as academic libraries become the central location for general collections, institutional repositories, university archives, manuscript collections, and other special collections, the world of collecting in academic libraries becomes more siloed. The profession stands to benefit from a stronger realization of shared collecting practices. Liaison librarians have the potential to provide critical information to archivists in support of faculty collecting and research. Archivists have the opportunity to provide liaison librarians with context about …

Becoming The Gothic Archive: From Digital Collection To Digital Humanities, Rose Fortier, Heather G. James May 2015

Becoming The Gothic Archive: From Digital Collection To Digital Humanities, Rose Fortier, Heather G. James

Library Faculty Research and Publications

The Gothic Archive is the flagship digital humanities project for the Marquette University library. The project was birthed from a simple digital collection, and through the partnership of faculty and librarians, was transformed into something more. The core tenets of digital collection creation were adhered to in order to create a solid foundation upon which to build the Archive. The expertise of both groups and communication were key in the evolution of the collection, and in discovering and highlighting the relationships between the objects. This case study reviews the steps Marquette took in creating the collection and taking it to …

Between Subject And Tech Expertise: Collaborating With Faculty For Digital Humanities Projects [Presentation], Rose Fortier, Heather G. James, Wendy Fall

Library Faculty Research and Publications

Libraries are well-positioned for partnership with digital humanities efforts in several ways. The management of digital items and the description of information resources for future researchers make libraries natural partners in digital humanities projects. Often Humanities scholars will reach out to the library for support or even guidance in these projects.

At Marquette University, the Gothic Archive exemplifies the development of this collaboration. Though the Archive started as a humble collection of digitized and transcribed gothic chapbooks, it is being developed into an interwoven collection of digitized materials and contextual objects and promises to become a full-fledged digital humanities tool. …

Marketing The Ir: Strategies From The Marquette Survey, Rose Fortier

Library Faculty Research and Publications

Marquette University’s institutional repository, e-Publications@Marquette, was established in 2008 for the deposit of faculty publications and research.

Organizing And Indexing Photo Collections, Rose Fortier Jan 2012

Organizing And Indexing Photo Collections, Rose Fortier

Library Faculty Research and Publications

Historical photo archives or collections can put an organization on the map and make it into a destination for patrons. Conversely, if not well organized and indexed, collections and archives can languish in obscurity and occupy valuable space and resources with no tangible return for the organization. The Milwaukee Public Library’s (MPL) Historic Photo Archives (HPA) contain around thirty thousand historic images; of those images, most are located in the Historic Photo Collection, one of the archives’ 45 individual collections. The HPA has evolved over the decades. Various reference librarians have been assigned the archives, and the rotation of responsible …


Asking For Permission: A Survey Of Copyright Workflows For Institutional Repositories, Ann Hanlon, Marisa Ramirez Apr 2011

Asking For Permission: A Survey Of Copyright Workflows For Institutional Repositories, Ann Hanlon, Marisa Ramirez

Library Faculty Research and Publications

An online survey of institutional repository (IR) managers identified copyright clearance trends in staffing and workflows. The majority of respondents followed a mediated deposit model, and reported that library personnel, instead of authors, engaged in copyright clearance activities for IRs. The most common “information gaps” pertained to the breadth of information in copyright directories like SHERPA/RoMEO. To fill these gaps, most respondents directly contacted publishers for permissions. Respondents typically did not share publisher responses with other IRs citing barriers such as time, expertise, staffing and the need for improved methods for sharing data with copyright directories.
