Library Services and IT Services papers

Libraries are often hailed as the cultural and learning hub of their communities. To deepen community engagement and social inclusion, libraries are adopting new technologies to facilitate a participatory and learning culture. With market saturation of smartphones and tablets and their associated apps, new affordances for content creation, curation and sharing show great potential to enhance participatory culture. The typical smartphone or tablet now incorporates digital technologies such as geo-location, audio, video, photo and web technologies.

Scholarly Communication Coaching: Liaison Librarians' Shifting Roles, Todd Bruns, Steve Brantley, Kirstin Duffin 2015 Eastern Illinois University

Scholarly Communication Coaching: Liaison Librarians' Shifting Roles, Todd Bruns, Steve Brantley, Kirstin Duffin

Steve Brantley

Two and a half decades into the open access (OA) movement, rapid changes in scholarly communication are creating significant demands on scholars. Today’s scholars must wrestle with meeting funder mandates for providing public access to their research, managing and preserving raw data, establishing/publishing open access journals, understanding the difference between “green OA” and “gold OA,” navigating the complicated issues around copyright and intellectual property, avoiding potentially predatory publishers, adapting their tenure plans to OA, and discovering increasing amounts of OA resources for their research and their curricular materials. These demands present an opportunity and a need for librarians ...

Graduate Conversations: Assessing The Space Needs Of Graduate Students, Melissa M. Burel, Abby Scheel, Rachel Besara, Jessica Evans Bradey, Kirsten Kinsley, Gloria Colvin

Library and Information Services Faculty Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity

This article discusses the preferences, habits, and needs of graduate students as they relate to spaces for research and study. The findings are based on a large-scale ethnographic study of graduate students at Florida State University conducted between 2010 and 2013. Using a variety of ethnographic methods, researchers found that graduate students have diverse needs and unequal access to appropriate spaces and resources to meet those needs. Libraries can help fill the gaps left by home and academic departments by providing a range of spaces offering different noise levels, resources, and other amenities.

Conversations-Aspirations: Services Reimagined, David Votta, Michelle Bradley

Re-think it: Libraries for a New Age

The basic tenet of the Harwood philosophy is the concept of "Turning Outward"; literally changing one's orientation to the community and not inward to your own organization. From the Harwood Institute; "Turning Outward makes the community and the people the reference point for getting things done."

Concurrent with the training MCLS began utilizing the new skills to conduct Harwood "community conversations" across the region. Conversation ...

You’ve Gotta Read This: Summer Reading at Musselman Library

Each year Musselman Library asks Gettysburg College faculty, staff, and administrators to help create a suggested summer reading list to inspire students and the rest of our campus community to take time in the summer to sit back, relax, and read.

Scholarly Communication As A Core Competency: Prevalence, Activities, And Concepts Of Scholarly Communication Librarianship As Shown Through Job Advertisements, Craig Finlay, Andrew Tsou, Cassidy R. Sugimoto

Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication

INTRODUCTION The dynamic nature of the scholarly communication landscape has produced a need for the creation of positions specifically focused on these issues. Yet, no clear title or job description for scholarly communication librarianship has emerged. The lack of standardization in this area is problematic for educators, professionals, and prospective professionals. METHODS Analyzing 13,869 job advertisements published between 2006 and 2014, this study attempts to examine the prevalence of scholarly communication terms and activities and the types of positions in which these terms and activities appear. RESULTS This study finds an increase in the use of the term “scholarly ...

Publishing And Public Access Ideas, Paul Royster

Library Conference Presentations and Speeches

What’s happening in publishing … … since the arrival of digital?

Technologically, work has become • easier to produce • easier to share • easier to disseminate worldwide

Practically, however, work has become : • concentrated in hands of fewer publishers • harder to get (legally) • more expensive •less circulated

Therefore: The Open Access Movement

Disclaimer: • I am not an apostle for Open Access • I believe in public access, not necessarily OpenAccess

What’s the difference?
Open access* = license to re-use, re-post, re-distribute, re-combine, re-work, revise, etc. [*Budapest definition]
Public access = right to read, download, and store for free (but not to re-distribute)

Open Access: How it ...
