Assessing Of Iranian Medical English Journals Based On Journal Selection Criteria In Scopus, Shahram Sedghi, Somayeh Ghaffari

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Journals which have been indexed in universal citation databases can introduce their countries’ scientific productions to the world’ scientific communications. In this study, it is aimed to evaluate Iranian Medical English Journals (IMEJ) based on Scopus’ journal selection criteria. This is a descriptive quantitative study which deals with the last issues of 52 numbers of IMEJ which have not been indexed in Web of Science, Scopus, and PubMed. Data is collected using a researcher-developed checklist whose validity was confirmed by faculty members. Microsoft Office Excel was used to analyze data. According to our findings, the studied journals were in compliance ...


Deciphering Dense Data: Approaches To Visualization, Sara Amato, Kathleen Spring May 2018

Deciphering Dense Data: Approaches To Visualization, Sara Amato, Kathleen Spring

Faculty & Staff Presentations

Working with large data sets can be a challenge for both librarians and external stakeholders. Vendors often provide scads of data about the products we use, but sifting through it takes time. Visualization tools exist to help distill meaning from particularly dense data. This talk provides a look at how data visualization approaches can differ based on a variety of organizational factors such as staffing capacity, costs, and specific project requirements. We offer a nuts-and-bolts look at a serials and journals shared print project from the Eastern Academic Scholars’ Trust that uses Tableau and OpenRefine to create collection retention scenarios ...

Getting Your Money's Worth: Exporting Invoices From Alma To Peoplesoft, Carole Correa-Morris, Micah Jeffries May 2018

Getting Your Money's Worth: Exporting Invoices From Alma To Peoplesoft, Carole Correa-Morris, Micah Jeffries

Faculty and Staff Publications

San Jose State University Library, along with all California State University (CSU) libraries, recently migrated to ExLibris’ Alma and Primo, going live with our unified CSU library system in 2017. One of our most anticipated Alma features is the ability to export invoices from Alma into the campus PeopleSoft financial systems (ERPs). A team of systems and acquisitions staff from several campuses developed an integration plan that could be adapted for use by all our CSU libraries. Several libraries have now successfully implemented this process, improving their invoice workflow efficiency.
This presentation will highlight our integration process that links Alma ...

Ready, Set, Go: Preparing For A Successful Erm Migration, Jessica Hartwigsen, Christine Holmes, Stacy Magedanz

Faculty and Staff Publications

The California State University is a consortium representing 23 campuses that went live on Alma in June 2017. This presentation shares the steps we took for a successful migration of our electronic resources. While the focus is on a consortium that used several different electronic resources management systems, many of the topics covered are also relevant for standalone libraries. We'll provide you with pre- and post-ERM checklists to help navigate the transition from your ILS to Alma. We'll discuss the advantages of having a task force and policies to provide oversight and guidance in decision making. We’ll ...

We’Ve Come A Long Way (Baby)! Or Have We? Evolving Intellectual Freedom Issues In The Us And Florida, L. Bryan Cooper, A.D. Beman-Cavallaro May 2018

We’Ve Come A Long Way (Baby)! Or Have We? Evolving Intellectual Freedom Issues In The Us And Florida, L. Bryan Cooper, A.D. Beman-Cavallaro

Works of the FIU Libraries

This paper analyzes a shifting landscape of intellectual freedom (IF) in and outside Florida for children, adolescents, teens and adults. National ideals stand in tension with local and state developments, as new threats are visible in historical, legal, and technological context. Examples include doctrinal shifts, legislative bills, electronic surveillance and recent attempts to censor books, classroom texts, and reading lists.

Privacy rights for minors in Florida are increasingly unstable. New assertions of parental rights are part of a larger conservative animus. Proponents of IF can identify a lessening of ideals and standards that began after doctrinal fruition in the 1960s ...


Remembering The Church In The Wildwood: The Archival Processing And Digitization Of The Martinsville Baptist Church Collection, Allison N. Grimes May 2018

Remembering The Church In The Wildwood: The Archival Processing And Digitization Of The Martinsville Baptist Church Collection, Allison N. Grimes

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Martinsville Baptist Church was founded in 1912 in a rural farming community on State Highway 7 in eastern Nacogdoches County. The church was founded during a revival being held in the community of Martinsville and has been in continuous operation ever since. The church grew throughout its lifetime, reaching record attendance and membership numbers between 1950 and 1980. Since the early 2000s, church attendance and membership has been in decline. This thesis outlines the history of Martinsville Baptist Church and explains conservation measures taken during the archival processing and digitization of records in the Martinsville Baptist Church Collection.

Community Engaged Digital Initiatives: Building Academic Library Services And Infrastructure With Faculty And Community Collaborators, Shannon Lucky, Craig Harkema Apr 2018

Community Engaged Digital Initiatives: Building Academic Library Services And Infrastructure With Faculty And Community Collaborators, Shannon Lucky, Craig Harkema

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Community collaborations have become key drivers for the development of our library’s digital initiatives (DI) program. While collaborative partnerships can complicate the process of getting DI work completed, they can also positively contribute to decision making around digitization projects, metadata use, user interface (UI) design, and infrastructure development. This presentation outlines possibilities for iteratively developing digital infrastructure and service offerings to support community engaged research and discusses key issues to consider when developing such a program. We will describe how we have adapted DI systems to support a range of projects from photography collections to oral histories, to locally ...


Getting To Know Our Web Archive: A Pilot Project To Collaboratively Increase Access To Digital Cultural Heritage Materials In Wyoming, Amanda R. Lehman, Bryan Ricupero Apr 2018

Getting To Know Our Web Archive: A Pilot Project To Collaboratively Increase Access To Digital Cultural Heritage Materials In Wyoming, Amanda R. Lehman, Bryan Ricupero

Digital Initiatives Symposium

The University of Wyoming is the only four year higher education institution in the state, a unique position amongst colleges and universities in the United States. Given this unusual status it is especially important that the university libraries use their resources to identify and partner with communities around the state to build collections that preserve their cultural heritage. An Archive-It subscription was purchased in 2016, with an initial goal of capturing university related materials. In an effort to expand the scope and meaningfulness of the web archive, a project has been undertaken to use university and statewide relationships to build ...


Preserving The Full Historic Record In Holistic Newspaper Digital Preservation: From The Backend To The Front, Virginia A. Dressler Apr 2018

Preserving The Full Historic Record In Holistic Newspaper Digital Preservation: From The Backend To The Front, Virginia A. Dressler

Virginia A Dressler


The paper will address two issues present in digital newspaper collections, namely that of long-term storage and access solutions specific to this medium, and takedown requests. The paper will outline the storage and hosting solution in place at Kent State University (KSU) of the student newspaper. The current digital archive contains ninety years of the printed newspaper (1926-2016), both reflecting both digitized and born-digital content. Decisions will be highlighted on the files retained on the dark archive (pod0), and conversely which files are stored on the hosting platform as access files.
 
Then, results will be presented from a recent research ...

Integrating Circulated Technology Into The Library Collection Development Plan, Neil Ordinario Apr 2018

Integrating Circulated Technology Into The Library Collection Development Plan, Neil Ordinario

Faculty and Staff Publications

Academic libraries are increasingly focused on the acquisition and expansion of circulating technology collections. These collections are often governed by auxiliary library services such as Access Services or IT departments and not considered as part of the general collection. Technology purchases are typically made with one-time-use funds and replacement is an ad-hoc process depending on budget availability. Users are rarely consulted regarding new purchases and systematic analysis of usage is lacking. As laptops, tablets and other technologies become integral to a library’s circulated resources, they need to be integrated as part of the regular collection and included in the ...

Unlock The Box At Your Library, Amanda Puetz Apr 2018

Unlock The Box At Your Library, Amanda Puetz

OLA Quarterly

Are you fascinated by the escape room craze sweeping the nation but unsure how to bring it to your library? An escape room is an immersive experience in which a group works through a series of themed clues and puzzles to solve a mystery and “escape” a room within a given amount of time, usually an hour. Libraries can provide a similar experience by having patrons open a series of locks on a hasp closing a single box. Patrons race the clock to open the box. Holding an Unlock the Box program at your library is more achievable than you ...


Volume 23 Issue 4 Introduction, Esther Moberg Apr 2018

Volume 23 Issue 4 Introduction, Esther Moberg

OLA Quarterly

Llamas, Adulting 101, Henna Art, Raptors, and Trivia. Most people in Oregon typically would not think of these words in connection with their local library. Yet, all of these are programs that have been served up in our local libraries just in the past year alone. With hundreds of programs covering even more diverse topics than these, perhaps the more typical things people think about when it comes to programs are an author talk, storytime, or book talk in the library. These are still staple library programs, but with this Oregon Library Association Quarterly issue we will be sharing some ...


Building Community At The Library With Coffee And Conversation, Amy Honisett, Rachael Short, Kate Schwab Apr 2018

Building Community At The Library With Coffee And Conversation, Amy Honisett, Rachael Short, Kate Schwab

OLA Quarterly

As communities and individuals struggle with houselessness and housing insecurity, library staff must adapt in order to help our patrons fulfill needs. In 2013, Multnomah County Library (MCL) and the Multnomah County Department of County Human Services surveyed library patrons about library use. The survey identified that about 18.6 percent of visitors to Central Library—the county system’s main branch, located in downtown Portland— are people experiencing houselessness. These patrons visit the library more frequently than patrons who are not experiencing houselessness, and they tend to stay at the library longer than the latter group.

Because patrons experiencing ...


What Did We Learn? Youth And Family Programs At Deschutes Public Library, Heather Mcneil Apr 2018

What Did We Learn? Youth And Family Programs At Deschutes Public Library, Heather Mcneil

OLA Quarterly

A four-year-old in a sparkly dress and tiara. Patrons loudly hammering on leather strips. Sleepy faces peering up from sleeping bags. Teens geeking out over Sherlock and anime characters. Llamas peeing on the carpet.

Wait. What? Llamas in the library? Surely not. Who would bring llamas in the library?

That would be me. And it’s just one of the many things I’ve learned over the years about youth programs, good, bad, and ugly. Let’s start with the good.

Probably number one on the adorable scale is our annual Royal Tea Party. We invite children to dress in ...

Adulting 101: Know Your Audience, Teresa Lucas Apr 2018

Adulting 101: Know Your Audience, Teresa Lucas

OLA Quarterly

During the winter of 2017, I began to see a common topic on library programming group threads centering around ideas such as teaching basic life skills to young and new adults that may not have been taught at home or school. Around the same time, Clara Piazzola, the library’s young adult assistant, came to me to share an idea that was buzzing around her library school discussion boards. She told me about a program idea that would teach young people necessary skills to help them survive in the grownup world. Talk about a coincidence! I gave her the go ...


The Art Of The Trade: A New/Old Take On Resource Sharing, Ann Scheppke Apr 2018

The Art Of The Trade: A New/Old Take On Resource Sharing, Ann Scheppke

OLA Quarterly

The Salem Public Library had been awarded a grant from the American Library Association and FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. The award included a six-week installation of a traveling exhibit called Thinking Money, designed to introduce basic concepts of financial literacy to teens, tweens, and young adults. The 50 libraries that received the Thinking Money grant were charged with partnering with community organizations to create at least four programs based on the exhibit’s theme.

Finding community partners was not at all difficult. Credit unions and financial planners were only too happy to conduct classes and give presentations, but ...


A New Use For The Makerspace, Diana Widdows Apr 2018

A New Use For The Makerspace, Diana Widdows

OLA Quarterly

If you want to elicit a groan and an eye roll from almost anyone in the field of education, you need only whisper two words: test prep. Standardized testing is a reality across the country, but even for those who can see its value, the testing is time consuming and can be soul-crushing for teachers and students.

At Warrenton Grade School, a Makerspace was established at the end of last year as a way to create opportunities for hands-on learning. It is housed in the art room, and teachers can bring their classes to work on projects. With this space ...


Library Takeovers: After Hours Nerf Games And More At The Corvallis-Benton County Public Library, Bonnie Brzozowski, Elizabeth Johnson, Kristy Kemper Hodge Apr 2018

Library Takeovers: After Hours Nerf Games And More At The Corvallis-Benton County Public Library, Bonnie Brzozowski, Elizabeth Johnson, Kristy Kemper Hodge

OLA Quarterly

The Corvallis-Benton County Public Library (CBCPL) has been hosting action-packed after-hours events for all ages since July 2017. Referred to as Takeovers, these events involve crafts, video games, Nerf games, and more—all while the library is closed. Each Takeover event is tailored to a specific age group (either tweens, teens, or adults) and people from outside that age group are not permitted in the library during the event. Takeovers are all about having fun and connecting with others and have proven to be incredibly popular; for example, registration and attendance caps are necessary for the Tween Takeovers to be ...

Pierce Library’S Night Against Procrastination, Sarah Ralston Apr 2018

Pierce Library’S Night Against Procrastination, Sarah Ralston

OLA Quarterly

There is a reason we are probably all familiar with the term “all-nighter,” whether we work in academia or elsewhere. The tendency to procrastinate is so common; most of us are likely to have had the experience of writing a paper late into the night before it is due or making a last-ditch attempt to learn concepts the night before a final exam. There are many strategies for dealing with, preventing, or avoiding procrastination, but a group of students and tutors at the European University Viadrina (EUV) in Frankfurt/Oder, Germany, came up with a novel twist on the traditional ...
