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 ...


Contemplative Pedagogy: Building Resilience In Academic Libraries:, Madeleine K. Charney, Jenny Colvin 2017 Furman University

Contemplative Pedagogy: Building Resilience In Academic Libraries:, Madeleine K. Charney, Jenny Colvin

Madeleine K. Charney

This paper addresses the emerging movement of contemplative pedagogy in higher education with an emphasis on academic librarianship. The authors posit how integrating mindfulness-based practices into pedagogy and programming builds resilience in students, creating meaning in an age of climate disruption, information overload and uncertain times. Examples of librarians’ relevant professional development activities are also included. Library spaces offering mindfulness opportunities for students are explored and a contemplative-oriented, campus-wide collaboration centered on climate disruption is featured.  Selected Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda are touched on, demonstrating how contemplative approaches in academic libraries support well-being, justice, community ...


Safeguarding For The Future: Managing Born-Digital Collections In Museums, Kimberly Kruse 2017 Seton Hall University

Safeguarding For The Future: Managing Born-Digital Collections In Museums, Kimberly Kruse

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

Over the past few decades, advancements in technology have changed society entirely. Every bit of information about world news, popular culture, and art is just a tap of a touchscreen away. So many aspects of the contemporary world have become digitized so that it was only a matter of time before museums would have to face the issue of born-digital media in their collections. From videos to web-based art, museums have to tackle how to save this new form of cultural heritage. Museums have to do so now before it gets lost forever. The challenge of born-digital objects lies in ...


Get To Know Your Librarian: How A Simple Orientation Program Helped Alleviate Library Anxiety, Rachael Muszkiewicz 2017 Valparaiso University

Get To Know Your Librarian: How A Simple Orientation Program Helped Alleviate Library Anxiety, Rachael Muszkiewicz

Rachael Muszkiewicz

Library orientations do their part to familiarize students with information literacy, and how the library fits within university life.  But what if an orientation could give a student a strong introduction to their academic librarians?  Research in academic libraries has noted that library anxiety remains a continual problem among current students.  Valparaiso University librarians created the Get to Know Your Librarian program, which sought to make librarians accessible.  Using humor and casualness, incoming students were “introduced” to librarians through a series of fun facts.  This simple program, was successful in helping alleviate incoming students’ library anxiety before their first semester.

Book Review: Students Lead The Library: The Importance Of Student Contributions To The Academic Library, Jennifer A. Bartlett 2017 University of Kentucky

Book Review: Students Lead The Library: The Importance Of Student Contributions To The Academic Library, Jennifer A. Bartlett

Jennifer A. Bartlett

Academic libraries, often said to be the “heart of the university,” owe their existence and importance to the students they serve. Students are at the core of the library mission, driving decisions in collections, services, innovation, outreach, and research support. However, their direct role in institutional planning is minimal, and their primary role is most often that of library user. Given their importance to libraries, how can students actively participate in library success? Students Lead the Library offers several examples of student involvement in action, or, as editors Sara Arnold-Garza and Carissa Tomlinson state, “this book seeks to elevate the ...

Customizing Metadata Fields And Using The Content Inventory Report To Manage Digital Commons, Nancy Krost 2017 Missouri University of Science and Technology

Customizing Metadata Fields And Using The Content Inventory Report To Manage Digital Commons, Nancy Krost

Digital Commons - Heartland User Group + IR Day

In Scholars’ Mine, we have heavily customized the metadata in our series, event communities, journals and galleries. This allows us to more easily track the content in our IR, discover errors, find opportunities to make the IR more robust, and run statistics.

The Content Inventory report is an incredibly useful tool in managing Digital Commons because it combines data across series rather that our having to export each series, adjust the metadata fields and then combine them. One example of this is our faculty works which are deposited in departments and filtered into a Faculty Research and Creative Works collection ...
