Importance Of School Library Programs, Cynthia Strong 2014 Seattle Pacific University

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. On the other hand, in the fields of education, school counseling, administration, and school leadership, and so on, there is a dearth of scholarship and recognition of the positive impact librarians and library media program have on student success. 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. Second ...


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 ...


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.

Functional Analysis And The Reappraisal Of Faculty Papers, Gregory Schmidt, Michael Law 2014 Kennesaw State University

Functional Analysis And The Reappraisal Of Faculty Papers, Gregory Schmidt, Michael Law

Provenance, Journal of the Society of Georgia Archivists

Many repositories at American colleges and universities hold the official records of their institutions as well as the personal papers of individuals. Archivists appraise these different materials—institutional records and personal papers—using separate theoretical perspectives. They tend to bring a records-management view of evidential value to the appraisal of institutional records and a curator’s eye for informational and intrinsic values to personal manuscripts. There is one collecting category common to university repositories, however, that requires a hybrid approach. Falling between the two broad categories of university records and personal manuscripts are the papers of university faculty members. Studies ...


Company History': Corporate Archives' Public Outreach On Fortune 100 Company Websites, Marie Force 2014 Kennesaw State University

Company History': Corporate Archives' Public Outreach On Fortune 100 Company Websites, Marie Force

Provenance, Journal of the Society of Georgia Archivists

Just before commercialization of the Internet, corporate archives communicated with the public via museums and exhibits, books and articles, educational curricula, television, anniversary publications, and nostalgic packaged goods. By 1996, as growing numbers of companies experimented with their first Web sites, corporate archivists such as Philip F. Mooney at Coca-Cola found a new, “unparalleled opportunity for outreach.” Mooney and his colleagues at Chevron, Ford Motor, J.C. Penney, Levi Strauss, Texas Instruments, and Wells Fargo were among those contributing early content to company Web sites, such as the J.C. Penney “History Page,” with its illustrated timeline, founder’s biography ...

Postmodernism, Processing, And The Profession: Towards A Theoretical Reading Of Minimal Standards, Melanie Griffin 2014 Kennesaw State University

Postmodernism, Processing, And The Profession: Towards A Theoretical Reading Of Minimal Standards, Melanie Griffin

Provenance, Journal of the Society of Georgia Archivists

As Frank Burke noted in 1981, evidence-based practice rather than theory tends to dominate professional literature about archives. The papers presented at archival conferences and published in journals often concern themselves with the quotidian functions of archives: processing, description, access, preservation, reference, education, and (in the decades since Burke wrote) digitization. This situation is hardly surprisingly given the fundamentally practical – indeed pragmatic – thrust of archival work. The field is often referred to as a science, not a theory, and abstract concepts neither offer concrete solutions to the immediate questions of daily practice nor provide new techniques for managing collections. Focusing ...


Easing The Learning Curve: The Creation Of Digital Learning Objects For Use In Special Collections Student Training, Judith A. Wiener 2014 Kennesaw State University

Easing The Learning Curve: The Creation Of Digital Learning Objects For Use In Special Collections Student Training, Judith A. Wiener

Provenance, Journal of the Society of Georgia Archivists

Low-staffed and often under-funded, academic libraries have traditionally relied upon student labor to maintain library services and to complete a seemingly unending workload. The use of students within the archival or special collections setting is no different. Special Collections departments often use students to complete tasks that could be reserved to the realm of professional staff. These include processing collections, preservation and conservation work, digitizing, and providing reference assistance.

History On The Move: Relocating Special Collections And Archives, Pam Hackbart-Dean, Leah Agne, Julie Mosbo

Provenance, Journal of the Society of Georgia Archivists

As anybody who has moved from one house or apartment to another knows, moving is hard work. It requires physical strength, to be sure, but it also demands mental strength since any move will cause a mixture of excitement, frustration and anxiety. The most crucial step to minimize mental stress is planning, which should be started as far in advance as possible. Because every move offers its own challenges, communication, coordination and flexibility are also essential. The same principles apply to moving an academic library‘s special collections. The focus of this article is on the preparation and execution of ...

A few years ago, I was presenting at a workshop in electronic records management for state agencies in Arizona. Many in the crowd came from agencies that had done little or no thinking about how they would manage their electronic records. They had basic questions, like ―How long do I need to keep email?‖

Every morning I drive to work past Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, a highly regarded college in the northeast for engineers, architects, mathematicians, and a predictable array of geeks and techno-nerds as well as a couple of what my daughter would term ―hot college kids.‖ What fascinates me during my drive, beyond the people-watching opportunities, is a banner displayed on the overpass linking the two sides of campus that poses one simple question to the students: ―Why not change the world?‖
