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 ...

Peer Research Mentors At Gettysburg College: Transforming Student Library Jobs Into High-Impact Learning Experiences, Clinton K. Baugess, Mallory R. Jallas, Meggan D. Smith, Janelle Wertzberger

Musselman Library Staff Publications

Research and Instruction librarians at Gettysburg College developed a Peer Research Mentor (PRM) program for undergraduate students. The program is designed to empower a group of student employees to work in partnership with experienced librarians in order to increase a PRM’s own research skills and support other student researchers more effectively. The program focuses on student training, reference service, and outreach to other students. The authors share the development of the program; describe their approach to training, supervision, and assessment; and offer insight about how to operate and sustain a similar program with limited resources.

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 2017 collection, we again bring together recommendations from across our campus—the books, movies, TV shows, and podcasts that have meant something special to us over the past year. 118 faculty, administrators and staff offer up 218 recommendations.

We include five special features this year. Two of our regular columnists return once again: James Udden ...

Selecting Link Resolver And Knowledge Base Software: Implications Of Interoperability, Cyndy Chisare, Jody C. Fagan, David J. Gaines, Michael Trocchia

Libraries

Link resolver software and their associated knowledge bases are essential technologies for modern academic libraries. However, because of the increasing number of possible integrations involving link resolver software and knowledge bases, a library’s vendor relationships, product choices, and consortial arrangements may have the most dramatic effects on the user experience and back-end maintenance workloads. A project team at a large comprehensive university recently investigated link resolver products in an attempt to increase efficiency of back-end workflows while maintaining or improving the patron experience. The methodology used for product comparison may be useful for other libraries.

Teaching Across Disciplinary Cultures: Visual Literacy As Defined By Non-Art Students, Karyn Hinkle

Karyn Hinkle

Part of a three-paper panel session entitled "Visual Literacy for All! - Instruction in the Self-directed Digital Era" sponsored by Louisiana State University: Easy access to images on the internet means students are using finding and making use of them more than ever, which begs the following questions: Do they fully understand what and why they’re using these images? Are they finding the images they want? Do students care about visual literacy when so much is instantly available to find, copy and paste? In this panel of librarians and LIS faculty, research into the use of images, visual literacy pedagogy ...

Meeting Patron Demand With Streaming Video, Angela Dresselhaus, Lisa S. Barricella

Angela Dresselhaus

Demand for streaming video for use in classrooms is growing at East Carolina University.  To meet this demand the library offers a variety of options, from Demand Driven Acquisitions to access to vendor curated collections. Each purchase method requires expertise to successfully navigate acquisitions, licensing, and access issues. Once collections are established, evaluating current models and the use of streaming media is important to ensure collections meet patron needs. This talk will delve into acquisitions methods, licensing, cross training, assessment, and collection development considerations for growing and maintaining streaming video collections


Review Of: "The Romantic National Tale And The Question Of Ireland" By Ina Ferris, Julie M. Dugger 2017 Selected Works

Review Of: "The Romantic National Tale And The Question Of Ireland" By Ina Ferris, Julie M. Dugger

Julie Dugger

The Romantic National Tale and the Question of Ireland, by Ina Ferris, covers territory well beyond that suggested by its title. Ina Ferris traces developments not only in the Irish national tale, but also in other fictional forms—Irish Gothic and “novels of insurgency”—and in non-fiction including travel narratives, memoirs, and political speeches. All of these genres, she argues, played a key role in shaping national subjectivity in a post-Union, pre-Catholic Emancipation Ireland. Beginning with the Act of Union and concluding with the Emancipation agitation of the 1820s, Ferris uses an impressive synthesis of textual analysis, British Romantic and ...


"I’M A Feminist, But…”: Popular Romance In The Women’S Literature Classroom, Julie M. Dugger 2017 Western Washington University

"I’M A Feminist, But…”: Popular Romance In The Women’S Literature Classroom, Julie M. Dugger

Julie Dugger

The enduring popularity of the romance novel makes it an ideal genre to use in teaching feminist literary theory because it raises two compelling questions. What is the women’s studies critic to do when a genre dominated by women writers and readers appears to conflict with feminist ideals? And what are teachers to do when that conflict turns up in the classroom: when students feel a disjunction between their pre-existing reading practices and the critical theories that inform their studies? The opposition between feminist theory and women’s popular reading practices, in scholarship and in the classroom, is an ...

Sharing [True] Stories: Supporting And Sustaining Collaborative Digital Oral History Archives And Research, Rachel Walton, Charlotte Nunes

Rachel Walton

The grant-funded [True] Stories project aims to provide instructors from a variety of disciplines and on multiple campuses the critical resources and expertise needed to make student-driven oral history work possible, impactful, accessible, and a permanent part of collections. As such, the project PIs are committed to building and vetting a practical model for oral history classroom collaborations between smaller, moderately-funded college archives or libraries. In addition to the expected challenges of technological and interdisciplinary collaboration, the [True] Stories face critical digital preservation decisions and roadblocks: shared and sustainable digital storage solutions; a standard set of acquisition, processing, and curatorial ...

Analysis For Science Librarians Of The 2016 Nobel Prize In Physiology Or Medicine: The Life And Work Of Yoshinori Ohsumi, Neyda Gilman

Neyda Gilman

Autophagy is a cellular process of destruction and recycling. Cellular materials are broken down and recycled as needed, providing the body a way to remove unwanted material while also providing the means to create new needed items. The importance of this process and its possible role in numerous diseases is why Yoshinori Ohsumi has been awarded a 2016 Noble Prize. Ohsumi has been awarded the 2016 Nobel in Physiology or Medicine for his “discoveries of mechanisms for autophagy and thus paving the way for the exciting field of autophagy research” (Nobelprize.org “Press release: The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physiology ...

Who's Talking About Scholarly Communication? Poster Presented At Miala 2017, Clayton Hayes, Heidi Elaine Kelly

Library Scholarly Publications

This study analyzes gender dynamics on the ALA's SCHOLCOMM listserv. Utilizing the listserv archive, the presenters analyzed individual message metadata in order to create a list of participants along with their gender; this was then utilized to correlate the frequency of new messages and replies sent to the list with the gender identity of participants. The results of the study clearly show that male participation on the list is disproportionately large.
