Grad Students' Information Seeking: What We Need To Know, Marg Sloan, Kim Mcphee

Kim McPhee

Graduate student enrollment is increasing and academic librarians must support this diverse group. How do grad students approach research? What are their stumbling blocks? What do they need from us in order to succeed? We spoke to graduate students in the social sciences and have uncovered the answers to these questions. The results of our research have both informed and streamlined our instruction practice. Find out what our grad students wish all academic librarians knew about them!

A Critical Analysis Of Arewa House Arabic Manuscripts Repository And Their Preservation C. 1970-2009, Musa Salih Muhammad

Musa Salih Muhammad

Arabic / Ajami manuscript collection of Arewa House Centre for Historical Documentation and Research, ABU Zaria, Nigeria composed of pre-jihad and 19th century literatures. This literary tradition had its origin in the Islamic intellectual culture which developed in Nigeria since the 11th century A.D. The influx of scholars like Imam Suyudy (Born 1 Rajab 849/3 October 1445 and died 19 Jumada Ulaa 911/ 18 October 1505), and Sheikh Al-Magheeli (d. 1504) into the country as well as the establishment of the Sokoto Caliphate in the 19th century led to the production of hundreds of thousands of manuscripts on various topics …

It Plays Therefore It Is: The Cartesian Problem For Film Preservationists, Greg Wilsbacher

Greg Wilsbacher

Film archivists are facing a new challenge as we move from digitizing analog video tape to digitizing motion picture film. Specifically, we must ask ourselves whether we want to preserve the moving image as an essence or motion picture film as a material artifact.

Can Open Access Save Us?, Mark Y. Herring Dec 2010

Can Open Access Save Us?, Mark Y. Herring

Dacus Library Faculty Publications

Just about every time I open a journal or read a blog online, I see something about e-books saving newspapers and magazines. Both magazines and newspapers–and really all scholalry communication–are going the way of all flesh, we’re told, but e-book reading may provide a stay of execution, however short that may be. It got me to thinking if there might be something else that would provide a similarDies Irae proroguement for scholarly communication in general. That’s when it occurred to me it could well be open access (OA), or at least as I envision it here.

Information-Seeking Behavior Of Novelists In Archives, Cary G. Osborne Dec 2010

Information-Seeking Behavior Of Novelists In Archives, Cary G. Osborne

Journal of Western Archives

Archives are a frequently untapped resource for novelists. Accounts of daily life, the lives of individuals, details of specific eras, and other minutiae found in the documents and memorabilia housed in archives can be used to fill out the essential scenes and events of the stories. Such facts and personal details help fiction writers make their stories real to readers and keep misconceptions and factual errors out. This study looks at the limited literature on the subject of authors in archives and presents examples of the types of information housed in particular archives to illustrate the kinds of details that …

Amazon.com’s announcement in July 2010 that eBooks out sold print books for the previous three months indicates that eBooks are here to stay. What effect will this have on teaching and learning? Will ease of access and portability facilitate cheating and plagiarism? How will eBooks and eReaders work in an urban academic environment? Are eReaders and eBooks the new digital divide?

Faculty from the Leonard Lief Library at Lehman College will share their experience with Sony eReaders and downloadable eBooks via OverDrive. Following this presentation there will be a guided discussion on eReader and eBook issues, such as:

Brave New World: Redesigning Lehman College Library’S Website, Stefanie Havelka, David Stevens Dec 2010

Brave New World: Redesigning Lehman College Library’S Website, Stefanie Havelka, David Stevens

Publications and Research

Since today’s students are digital natives, they naturally expect more from an academic library website. Well-designed websites, virtual games, social networking as well as search engines are an integral part of their daily digital lives. Consequently, challenges faced during redesign of a library’s website are two-fold:

  • Concepts of web usability must be applied. The website needs to be well organized and present its information and content in a user-friendly manner.
  • The website needs to be visually appealing since it serves both as the virtual extension of the physical library, as well as a significant outreach tool promoting the Library’s and …

Bam! Pow! Graphic Novels Fight Stereotypes In Academic Libraries: Supporting, Collecting, Promoting, Beth Jane Toren Dec 2010

Bam! Pow! Graphic Novels Fight Stereotypes In Academic Libraries: Supporting, Collecting, Promoting, Beth Jane Toren

University Libraries Faculty Scholarship

This study examines the launch of a graphic novel collection in an academic library and presents a study analyzing the increase of titles in Association of Research Libraries with the subject heading “Graphic Novels” between fall 2008 and fall 2009. Statistics show a 40% increase, averaging 62 additional titles, during a year of global financial crisis. Exploring the prejudice against comics lingering in more traditional corners of academia, this paper encourages librarians to counter stereotypes and therefore bring more people, including other librarians, to view graphic novels as literature. This study includes recommended practices for supporting, collecting, and promoting these …
