The Language Of Information Literacy: Do Students Understand?, Gayle Schaub, Patricia Bravender, Cara Cadena, Christopher Kierkus 2017 Grand Valley State University

The Language Of Information Literacy: Do Students Understand?, Gayle Schaub, Patricia Bravender, Cara Cadena, Christopher Kierkus

Gayle Schaub

In order to effectively access and utilize the resources of the academic library and to become information literate, students must understand the language of information literacy. This study analyzes undergraduate students’ understanding of fourteen commonly used information literacy terms. It was found that some of the terms least understood by students are those most frequently found in faculty-created research assignments and syllabi and which are used by librarians during library instruction. It is recommended that librarians work with faculty to make them aware of students’ lack of understanding of information literacy terms and that librarians also reinforce their meaning during ...

Applying The Principles Of Total Library Assessment To Inform Sustainable Collection Development (Pending), Michael Luther, Ana Guimaraes 2016 Kennesaw State University

Applying The Principles Of Total Library Assessment To Inform Sustainable Collection Development (Pending), Michael Luther, Ana Guimaraes

Ana Guimaraes

In 2015, the Kennesaw State University Library System (KSULS) began a pilot project to assess the physical collections of the organization. The collection assessment project coordinators, consisting of the Assessment Librarian and the Collection Development Librarian, set a goal to assess four subject areas over a one-year time frame. For the project to be successful, two things were clear from the outset: 1) no one-size-fits-all solution would be sufficient to capture the diverse data necessary to adequately inform collection development, and 2) the work of making sense of the gathered information would best be performed by the Undergraduate Faculty Liaisons ...

Putting A Ux Lens On Library Space Assessment., Maurini Strub, Melissa Laning

Maurini Strub

Libraries historically collect lots of different types of data. With the popular shift in moving from data collection to assessment that matches organizational goals, user experience can provide a framework for assessment efforts. The University of Louisville (UofL) Libraries re-examined its spaces in a heavily trafficked and utilized area completing and reporting an assessment in May 2014. Drawing on this assessment this paper covers best practices and methods to incorporate a user centered design to data collection. Rather than focusing on the data collected in the study, we focus on the methods, what they allowed us to learn, and how ...

You've Gotta Read This: Summer Reading At Musselman Library (2016), Musselman Library

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. Our goal is to inspire students and the rest of our community to take time in the summer to sit back, relax, and read.

With the 2016 collection, we again bring together recommendations from across our campus—the books, movies, TV shows, and even musicals that have meant something special to us over the past year. 124 faculty, administrators and staff offer up a record number of 226 recommendations.

We include five special features this year. Two of our regular columnists ...

Promoting Subject Specialists & Enhancing Visibility Of Library Reference [Panel] Ala, Rusa-Mers, Barbara Tierney, Carrie Moran, Mara Thacker, Sha Towers

Barbara Tierney


Academic library reference continues to go through transformation, as users increasingly rely on the web for their information needs. Traditional library liaison and subject specialist roles are changing, as librarians attempt to realign services with university-wide goals, including an increased emphasis on undergraduate student success. This panel program will show how institutions market, brand, and promote their reference services on the web; how library subject liaisons and specialists are presented online.  This panel program will explore what various institutions are doing to increase the visibility of their subject librarians and how they are formalizing and assessing their new and existing ...


Differentiated Instruction In Information Literacy Courses In Urban Universities: How Flipping The Classroom Can Transform A Course And Help Reach All Students, Alex Berrio Matamoros 2016 CUNY School of Law

Differentiated Instruction In Information Literacy Courses In Urban Universities: How Flipping The Classroom Can Transform A Course And Help Reach All Students, Alex Berrio Matamoros

Alex Berrio Matamoros

Urban universities enroll highly diverse student bodies by every measure of “diversity.” In addition to different learning styles students may innately possess, many aspects of diversity impact the way they learn. Despite having diverse students, information literacy instructors in urban universities may approach teaching by attempting to reach the “average student,” even when there is little to no homogeneity among students. A differentiated instruction approach invites instructors to design various teaching and assessment devices in an attempt to appeal to how students learn differently. In order for differentiated instruction in information literacy to work, most classroom time should be dedicated ...

Struggle For Survival: The History And Ethics Of Living Collections, Emily Simms 2016 Buffalo State College

Struggle For Survival: The History And Ethics Of Living Collections, Emily Simms

Museum Studies Theses

This thesis explores the ethics involved with institutions caring for living collections worldwide such as zoos, national parks, and aquariums. There are several main concerns that these institutions are currently facing: poaching, keeper negligence, euthanasia within zoos themselves, and public opinion. The moral issues engrained can help guide keepers of these collections to take better care of the animals for which they are responsible. It also explores specific cases in the past in which living collections have managed serious issues and how they resolved these issues.

Fosces: Adding Another Library Tile To The Medical School Mosaic, Alexandra Gomes, Thomas Harrod

Himmelfarb Library Faculty Posters and Presentations

The 2014 launch of the revised medical school curriculum provided new opportunities for librarians to collaborate with faculty. Due to past informatics instruction in the first year curriculum, we were invited to expand this content as part of a new formative Objective Structured Clinical Examination (FOSCE) initiative. This poster will describe the development and implementation of the FOSCE informatics curriculum.

In FOSCEs, small groups of students rotated through simulated patient encounters in order to demonstrate their clinical knowledge and skills. Due to simulation center logistics, students alternated between skills demonstration and informatics activities. The informatics component consisted of fifty minute ...

The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) is a free trade agreement between 12 countries in the Asia Pacific region: Australia, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States, and Vietnam. The agreement, signed by the U.S. and other participating countries in Auckland, New Zealand on February 4, 2016, “promotes economic integration to liberalise trade and investment” and “bring economic growth” to the region and participating countries. One reason for the sense of uncertainty, unease, and concern surrounding free trade agreements in general and the TPP in particular is that the negotiations are not public ...
