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

Faculty Research & Creative Activity

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 ...

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.

Introduction by John A. Strong Professor Emeritus, Long Island University:

About twenty years ago when I was working with Gaynell Stone on the Suffolk County Archaeological Association series on Long Island Indians she sent me to the Nassau County Parks facility at Sands Point to look at a collection of bibliographic cards that were stored there. Dan Kaplan, a park staff member, ushered me to a big empty library area, seated me at a long table, and brought me several long rectangular boxes filled with hundreds of three by five index cards with writing on both sides. I was amazed ...

The challenge of creating an effective and appropriate library collection has been further tested by the recent advent of what Clayton Christensen has termed “disruptive technology.” In his well-known study, The Innovator’s Dilemma, Christensen explores the impact of technological change on the business and other communities. For Christensen, technology can either be sustaining or disruptive. Sustaining technologies improve the performance of products and continue to make them valuable to the consumer. Disruptive technologies, on the other hand, initially underperform in the marketplace, but have a tendency to improve their quality at a rapid rate and eventually replace the established ...

The continuing backlog in collections processing could be reduced through the application of More Product Less Process (MPLP) or other approaches, but the effort is still hampered by a lack of personnel to assign to processing. This discussion addresses whether it is possible to consider student assistants a viable labor source in special collections and archives to mitigate this personnel gap. A retrospective literature review determined historical attitudes toward the use of student assistants in academic libraries and the tasks that students were capable of performing. Study participants practicing in Special Collections and Archives in academic libraries in Georgia were ...


Metadata And Lasting Collaborative Success, Felicia J. Williamson 2015 Sam Houston State University

Metadata And Lasting Collaborative Success, Felicia J. Williamson

Provenance, Journal of the Society of Georgia Archivists

Libraries, archives and museums (LAMs) have been creating metadata of various types (catalog records, archival finding aids, museum inventories, etc.) in one form or the other since their foundation. They have also been struggling as historically unique organizations with the best way to capture and manage metadata so that it can be used to organize their collections and provide increased access to users. In recent years, there has been a push to apply metadata standards to enable greater information sharing between LAMs – especially those with a common research or regional focus – and create online exhibits that reach new audiences. This ...


Ambiguity And The Digital Archivist, Caryn Radick 2015 Rutgers University - New Brunswick/Piscataway

Ambiguity And The Digital Archivist, Caryn Radick

Provenance, Journal of the Society of Georgia Archivists

This article presents an exploratory study of the use and interpretation of the position title “digital archivist,” and considers issues in how this term is used and understood, particularly in regard to working with born-digital materials. It looks at discussions of terminology and mentions of the digital archivist title in professional literature and provides a brief content analysis of digital archivist position advertisements from between 1995 and 2012 that focuses on responsibilities of working with born-digital versus digitization. The lack of clarity and consensus regarding what a digital archivist is or does reflects uncertainty within the archival profession even as ...
