Linkedin At The Library: A Continuing Collaboration, Ariana Santiago, Emily Vinson, Esmeralda Fisher, Ashley Lierman, Mea Warren

Collaborative Librarianship

The University of Houston Libraries collaborated with University Career Services to host LinkedIn at the Library, an event where students were offered reviews of their LinkedIn profiles and free professional headshots. Although LinkedIn at the Library was initially funded as a one-time event, the two units worked together to turn it into a recurring event. This article presents our methods for collaboratively planning and hosting the events, attendance and assessment results, and lessons learned for future collaborative efforts. LinkedIn at the Library is a unique example of an academic library’s partnership with a career services unit.


Chart Your Course, Kenya S. Flash, Caroline Zeglen, Stephanie Miranda 2018 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Chart Your Course, Kenya S. Flash, Caroline Zeglen, Stephanie Miranda

Faculty: Other Publications and Presentations -- UT Libraries

Library instruction is most effective when thoughtfully developed with faculty and integrated in a course. But how do you determine which faculty partnerships will have the most impact? In this poster, we discuss the process of curriculum mapping in an agriculture program, how it reveals new opportunities for library instruction, and pitfalls to avoid when charting your course. In fall 2016, librarians at the University of Tennessee Hodges Library and Pendergrass Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine Library developed learning outcomes for library instruction and services using feedback from staff and the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy. We mapped or coded the ...


Overcoming Objections To Oer From Faculty And Administrators, Cheryl Cuillier 2018 University of Arizona

Overcoming Objections To Oer From Faculty And Administrators, Cheryl Cuillier

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Awareness and usage of open educational resources (OER) in higher education is on the rise, thanks to OER advocates and digital repositories such as the Open Textbook Library, MERLOT, Cool4Ed, OER Commons, and more. But as the Open Education Librarian at the University of Arizona Libraries, I’ve encountered a variety of concerns from faculty and administrators about OER. These range from worries about content quality to the amount of time it takes faculty to adopt/adapt/create OER to the difficulty of finding OER in a particular subject (particularly for upper-division courses). Concerns also relate to academic freedom, campus ...

As collaboration has become widespread in academia, and the number of authors per article has increased, the publication count is no longer an accurate indicator of scientific output in many cases. To overcome this limitation, this study defined and computed a relative count of publications called ‘CP’ (credit-based contribution points), based on the sequence-determines-credit (SDC) method, which takes into account the level of contribution of each author. Analyses were done on a sample of 410 Vietnamese social scientists whose publications were indexed in the Scopus database during 2008–2017. The results showed that the average CP of Vietnamese researchers in ...

The goal of the SHARE initiative, a partnership between the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the Center for Open Science (COS), is to build a “free, open, data set about research and scholarly activities across their life cycle.” As of August 2017, 161 repositories and publishers have made metadata available to SHARE for harvesting, and the aggregated data set is available for searching. Many metadata providers are institutional repositories utilizing the bepress Digital Commons platform whose metadata is harvested through the OAI-PMH (Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting) protocol for repository interoperability. A group of Digital Commons repository ...

What’S Mine Is Yourls, Kimberly R. Abrams, Junior Tidal 2018 New York City College of Technology, CUNY

What’S Mine Is Yourls, Kimberly R. Abrams, Junior Tidal

The Emerging Learning Design Journal

Hyperlink management is critical to website functionality because a site with dead links is not fully operable for the end user. In libraries, links used for marketing, course materials, electronic resources, social media, and other uses are laborious to maintain. Often, these links are long, unreadable, and unmemorable. In order to streamline link maintenance, improve link usability, and promote resources, an open source, short link manager called Your Own URL Shortener (YOURLS), was implemented at an academic library. This primer describes this process. Not only does YOURLS shorten links, it also acts as a database link manager. Long URLs are ...

Mission Critical? The Presence Of Information Literacy In Academic Library Mission Statements, Robert Perret 2018 University of Idaho

Mission Critical? The Presence Of Information Literacy In Academic Library Mission Statements, Robert Perret

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

This paper examines the mission and vision statements of the largest academic library in each of the United States to determine whether information literacy is included in these top-level guiding documents. It is found that only a quarter of these institutions include information literacy in these statements, which suggests this vital aspect of librarianship may be undervalued at an organizational level.
