The Language Of Information Literacy: Do Students Understand?, Gayle Schaub, Patricia Bravender, Cara Cadena, Christopher Kierkus 2017 Grand Valley State University

The Language Of Information Literacy: Do Students Understand?, Gayle Schaub, Patricia Bravender, Cara Cadena, Christopher Kierkus

Gayle Schaub

In order to effectively access and utilize the resources of the academic library and to become information literate, students must understand the language of information literacy. This study analyzes undergraduate students’ understanding of fourteen commonly used information literacy terms. It was found that some of the terms least understood by students are those most frequently found in faculty-created research assignments and syllabi and which are used by librarians during library instruction. It is recommended that librarians work with faculty to make them aware of students’ lack of understanding of information literacy terms and that librarians also reinforce their meaning during ...

Applying The Principles Of Total Library Assessment To Inform Sustainable Collection Development (Pending), Michael Luther, Ana Guimaraes 2016 Kennesaw State University

Applying The Principles Of Total Library Assessment To Inform Sustainable Collection Development (Pending), Michael Luther, Ana Guimaraes

Ana Guimaraes

In 2015, the Kennesaw State University Library System (KSULS) began a pilot project to assess the physical collections of the organization. The collection assessment project coordinators, consisting of the Assessment Librarian and the Collection Development Librarian, set a goal to assess four subject areas over a one-year time frame. For the project to be successful, two things were clear from the outset: 1) no one-size-fits-all solution would be sufficient to capture the diverse data necessary to adequately inform collection development, and 2) the work of making sense of the gathered information would best be performed by the Undergraduate Faculty Liaisons ...

Connecting Access From Metadata To Marc, Amy Leigh Allen, Mary A. Gilbertson, Deborah E. Kulczak

University Libraries Faculty Publications and Presentations

Making a connection between digital repositories and library catalogs is an issue many libraries and archives face, especially when dealing with items that traditionally received full cataloging records. This poster will explore different workflows for reusing metadata to create catalog records, connecting the two resources together. In order to have one interface to search both the older physical items and newer digital items, the archives and technical services department of the University of Arkansas Libraries worked together to create different workflows to save time and eliminate the need for double entry, using the open source software MarcEdit and XML Notepad ...

Sowing Seeds Of Diversity And Inclusion In The Midwest, Tobie Matava, Harrison W. Inefuku

Digital Repository Conference Papers, Posters and Presentations

Iowa State University is located in the middle of a state whose population is 92% White. The university's demographics are similarly homogenous, with 71–86% of students, faculty and staff identifying as White. Our poster highlights steps taken and programs implemented to reinvigorate a library diversity committee at a predominantly White institution. Information will be provided on efforts to diversify staff, increase cultural competency, and combat racism and identity-based prejudice of all kinds.

Putting A Ux Lens On Library Space Assessment., Maurini Strub, Melissa Laning

Maurini Strub

Libraries historically collect lots of different types of data. With the popular shift in moving from data collection to assessment that matches organizational goals, user experience can provide a framework for assessment efforts. The University of Louisville (UofL) Libraries re-examined its spaces in a heavily trafficked and utilized area completing and reporting an assessment in May 2014. Drawing on this assessment this paper covers best practices and methods to incorporate a user centered design to data collection. Rather than focusing on the data collected in the study, we focus on the methods, what they allowed us to learn, and how ...

Developing A Campus-Wide Research Lifecycle: Perspectives From The #11;University Of Central Florida Libraries, Lee Dotson, Sarah A. Norris

Lee Dotson

Librarians at the University of Central Florida created their Research Lifecycle (RLC) to illustrate the research process, highlight campus-wide support services, and identify unmet needs. This session will explore the development of the RLC model, provide an in-depth analysis of the graphic that was created, and explain how the RLC contributed to the developing Scholarly Communication model at UCF. The speakers will also review the steps taken to vet the RLC with faculty and other campus units and emphasize other outcomes such as building stronger relationships with key partners, as well as highlighting spinoff projects. A broad assessment will illustrate ...

Grow Your Own Academic Library Scholarly Communication Program, Barbara Tierney, Lee Dotson, Ven Basco, John Venecek, Sarah A. Norris

Lee Dotson

How does an academic library go about growing its own Scholarly Communication (SC) program with no budget, no staff, no dedicated office space, no partners, and no experience? The University of Central Florida Libraries responded to such a challenge during 2012-15 by creating a grassroots SC program staffed by a volunteer 20-member library faculty advisory group and creating an innovative “Research Lifecycle” model to help define an evolving menu of SC resources and services that could be turned on, as available, to UCF constituents.

New Strategies For Aligning Libraries With Institutional Goals, Roger Weaver, Kathleen Spring, Maggie Trish 2016 Missouri University of Science and Technology

New Strategies For Aligning Libraries With Institutional Goals, Roger Weaver, Kathleen Spring, Maggie Trish

Kathleen Spring

Aligning the library’s activities with larger institutional goals is key for library deans and directors. For many, integrating with larger campus priorities is a necessary step to strengthen the relevance of the library. Repository initiatives can play an important role here, at both large and small institutions. But how?

The libraries at Missouri University of Science and Technology and at Linfield College have provided support for many of the top-level strategic initiatives through innovative repository services, including student recruitment and retention, community engagement, and research and data support. In this presentation, Roger Weaver, Kathleen Spring, and Maggie Trish discuss ...

Starting, Publishing, And Sustaining An Online Journal: Beginner’S Workshop, Pat Maxwell, Anne Larrivee, Lisa Deluca

Digital Commons + Great Lakes User Group & NY IR Day

This interactive workshop will offer best practices to follow when creating, publishing, and sustaining an online journal. Although online journals share many characteristics, journals can vary based on how editors choose to set them up. As more libraries assist with this process, editors are coming to librarians with questions about how to start. This collaborative pairing leads to questions such as: How can librarians be involved in the publishing process, and to what capacity? Who will design the journal? How can the library promote these journals and encourage submissions? Learn from a team of librarians who will use their consulting ...


Teaching Faculty's Perspectives On Business Information Literacy, Diana H. Wu, Susan L. Kendall 2016 San Jose State University

Teaching Faculty's Perspectives On Business Information Literacy, Diana H. Wu, Susan L. Kendall

Susan L. Kendall

Purpose – Effective integration of information literacy skills into the business curriculum requires the development of collaborative partnerships between teaching faculty and librarians. Developing a good partnership requires an understanding of the teaching faculty's perspectives. This paper aims to address these issues. Design/methodology/approach – A survey was sent to business teaching faculty at California State Universities to determine their expectations in regards to student information literacy skills. Findings – Writing a report or project that required in-depth research is one of the major expectations. All faculty surveyed expect students to use library research for their assignments. Originality/value – Business faculty ...
