Building Financial Stability Through International Collaboration: A Proposal For Partnerships With Chinese Universities, Courtright Memorial Library

This proposal outlines five primary strategies for partnering with Chinese universities: student recruitment, student exchanges, faculty exchanges, study abroad programs, and joint degree programs. Each method offers distinct benefits and requires varying levels of commitment, offering Otterbein the flexibility to tailor its engagement with Chinese institutions.

The document also underscores existing relationships with prominent Chinese institutions established through prior visits by Otterbein staff, creating a solid foundation for further collaboration.

Distinguishing Citation Quality For Journal Impact Assessment, Andrew Lim, Hong Ma, Qi Wen, Zhou Xu, Brenda Cheang Aug 2009

Distinguishing Citation Quality For Journal Impact Assessment, Andrew Lim, Hong Ma, Qi Wen, Zhou Xu, Brenda Cheang

Research Collection Lee Kong Chian School Of Business

The research community has long and often been fervently keen on debating the topic of journal impact. Well, just what is the impact of a journal? Today, the Science Citation Index (SCI) recognizes over 7,000 journals. The sheer number of available journals renders it pivotal for researchers to accurately gauge a journal's impact when submitting their papers, as it has become commonplace that researchers regard publishing their work in established journals to have significant influence on peer recognition. For journals in Management Information System (MIS), such research studies have continuously been published since the 1990s. Nine of them have been …


Ageism In Academic Librarianship, Melanie Chu Jul 2009

Ageism In Academic Librarianship, Melanie Chu

E-JASL 1999-2009 (Volumes 1-10)

Background

Nearly one out of every ten librarians is under the age of thirty. The average age of a graduate student in library and information science is 30-35 years old. Between 2010-2020, 45% of librarians will reach the retirement age of 65 years old. The relative age of the profession will continue to decrease as retirements increase. Statistically, the population of young librarians is a growing minority.

Young, new librarians face age discrimination, including disrespectful treatment in the workplace and unrealistic expectations of performance. Ageism in academic libraries results in job dissatisfaction and loss of retention for these new librarians. …


Open House In The Ivory Tower: Public Programming At An Academic Library, Rochelle Smith, Ben Hunter Jul 2009

Open House In The Ivory Tower: Public Programming At An Academic Library, Rochelle Smith, Ben Hunter

E-JASL 1999-2009 (Volumes 1-10)

Abstract

Public programming, a frequently used outreach tool for public libraries, is far less common in academic libraries. This article examines the University of Idaho Library’s efforts to attract both university and community members with public programming, delving into detail for three specific grant-funded discussion series: one on Jewish literature, one on graphic novels, and one on jazz. Strategies for location selection, advertising, scheduling and funding are all discussed with commentary on what worked well, what didn’t, and how public programming fits into the mission of an academic library.

Academic Library Services For Users With Developmental Disabilities: Partnership Of Access And Syracuse University Libraries, Adina Mulliken, Ann Atkins May 2009

Academic Library Services For Users With Developmental Disabilities: Partnership Of Access And Syracuse University Libraries, Adina Mulliken, Ann Atkins

Publications and Research

Syracuse University Library and Access partnered to provide library orientations to six Syracuse University students who have developmental disabilities. Access is a service that supports college course attendance for students who have developmental or cognitive disabilities. Students with developmental disabilities are being included in college life more and more. As this occurs, academic libraries will be providing more services to this population. We hope Syracuse University’s experience will be useful for other libraries to build on as they develop services. Additionally, we discuss opportunities to improve services for all students by focusing on students with developmental disabilities.

Speaking Of Books… Connecting With Faculty Through A Campus Author Series, Timothy Hackman Apr 2009

Speaking Of Books… Connecting With Faculty Through A Campus Author Series, Timothy Hackman

E-JASL 1999-2009 (Volumes 1-10)

Abstract

A faculty author speaker series is an effective way to build bridges between academic librarians and the teaching faculty, as well as raise the profile of the university library. To explore the challenges and rewards of hosting such a series, this article presents a history of the series “Speaking of Books… Conversations with Campus Authors” at the University of Maryland. It discusses the details of planning and executing author events, in the hope that others can use this information to host their own lecture series. Finally, it presents a few ideas for future directions of the faculty author series.
