Importance Of School Library Programs, Cynthia Strong

SPU Works

Within the discipline of library science, over 20 research studies have been done in the United States attesting to how high-quality school library programs contribute to improved academic achievement.

This conceptual paper first presents an overview of the empirical research on school library programs and the positive impact they have on the academic achievement of students in the United States.

Librarian, Heal Thyself: A Scholarly Communication Analysis Of Lis Journals, Chealsye Bowley, Micah Vandegrift 2014 The Florida State University

Librarian, Heal Thyself: A Scholarly Communication Analysis Of Lis Journals, Chealsye Bowley, Micah Vandegrift

Library Faculty Publications

This article presents an analysis of 111 journals in Library and Information Science based on measurements of "openness" including copyright policies, open access self-archiving policies and open access publishing options. We propose a new metric to rank journals: the H.O.i.i. Factor (How Open Is It). Finally, the article calls for librarians and researchers in LIS to examine our scholarly literature and hold it to the principles and standards that we are asking of other disciplines.

Information Literacy In The New Core Curriculum, Elisa Slater Acosta 2014 Loyola Marymount University and Loyola Law School

Information Literacy In The New Core Curriculum, Elisa Slater Acosta

Elisa Slater Acosta

Faculty and librarians at Loyola Marymount University (LMU) are partnering to embed important information literacy skills into the new core curriculum. Beginning fall 2013, every freshman at LMU will spend some mandatory time in their Freshman Seminar course developing basic information literacy skills. The same skills will be reinforced and enhanced in their Rhetorical Arts course the following semester. This will provide the foundation for students to later develop more advanced information literacy skills during a required course that has been “flagged” for information literacy at the upper level. This tiered and systematic approach will allow for a more consistent ...

A Sleuth Of Our Own: A Historical View Of Nancy Drew, Girl Detective, Jeannie A. Ferriss

SLIS Connecting

Nancy Drew was and is the ideal young woman; smart, independent, fearless, thin, wealthy, athletic and invincible. She would be a new kind of female character-independent, exciting, and in charge of her own destiny. Nancy Drew acted on her own and survived to tell about it. She changed forever the way girls looked at themselves and their abilities. No longer would female characters have to sit on the sidelines and wait for the man to rescue them, Nancy rescued herself. This study looks at the evolution of Nancy Drew and the people who created her from 1930 to the present ...


Getting Young Adults To Stop & Participate @ Your Library, Antoinette Giamalva 2014 The University of Southern Mississippi

Getting Young Adults To Stop & Participate @ Your Library, Antoinette Giamalva

SLIS Connecting

Young adults can be one of the hardest demographics to get to participate in library programs in substantial numbers. Young adults, or teenagers in the 7-12 grades, tend to have busy schedules and may not have time to come to long, drawn out programs. However, just because young adults do not seem to have time to attend extensive programs does not mean they do not have time for the library. Passive programming or independent programming can draw young adults into the library and get them active in the young adult section.
