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 ...

At Wichita State University Ablah Library, members of Technical Services and Special Collections began collaborating on a mass digitization project to increase visibility and accessibility of Special Collections holdings, and to digitally preserve brittle rare materials. Both departments scan collections, create metadata, and upload materials into CONTENTdm. The departments overcame challenges regarding the project, such as limited collaboration between the departments, poor communication, minimal metadata, and differences in quality control expectations.

Evaluating Scholarly Communication Services And Programs To Plan For Sustained Success, Jacklyn Rander, Matt Ruen 2016 Grand Valley State University

Evaluating Scholarly Communication Services And Programs To Plan For Sustained Success, Jacklyn Rander, Matt Ruen

Jacklyn Rander

The scholarly communications program and institutional repository at Grand Valley State University began in 2008, and in its first seven years, grew rapidly. Our team, recently-expanded, now includes three full time positions, and through our repository we host open textbooks, open-access journals, and thousands of documents. Our initial growth was organic and opportunistic, which enabled this initiative to successfully take root in the University Libraries. The next challenge for our scholarly communications program is to make sure those early roots are strong and healthy, so that we can sustain our initial success through the next seven years and beyond.

In ...


We’Re Open Access—But Are We Accessible?, Matt Ruen, Jackie Rander 2016 Grand Valley State University

We’Re Open Access—But Are We Accessible?, Matt Ruen, Jackie Rander

Jacklyn Rander

The open access movement, from the Budapest and Berlin declarations onward, has consistently focused on removing economic and legal barriers to scholarly information. While this has increased access to research for many, it implicitly assumes that content need only be online, free, and openly licensed for everyone to have access—an assumption which neglects the barriers that may lurk within content, preventing disabled or impaired users from enjoying the same access to scholarship.

This assumption is as prevalent in library open access services as elsewhere; like many other repository teams, we have focused on recruiting content, not evaluating it. This ...

Nebraska Intellectual Freedom Manual, Round Table On Intellectual Freedom, Nebraska Library Association, Michael Elsener, Sue Ann Gardner, K. Joan Birnie, Karen Drevo, Brenda Ealey, Timothy Lentz, Todd Schlechte

Zea E-Books

Much has changed in libraries and society since the publication of the 2004 revision of the Nebraska Library Association Intellectual Freedom Manual. The consensus of the current members of the Nebraska Library Association round table on Intellectual Freedom (NLA IF) was not to just revise the former manual, but to create an entirely new edition. In doing so, the authors have addressed a number of new issues. The intention was to keep it relatively brief but still useful. Readers should be able to read sections independent of one another for quick reference on topics of interest. For readers of the ...

Altmetrics In The Library, Anne E. Rauh 2016 Syracuse University

Altmetrics In The Library, Anne E. Rauh

Libraries' and Librarians' Publications

Research libraries assist scholars in demonstrating the value of their scholarly output through citation metrics and other measures. As the forms of scholarly communication change, so do the metrics used for assessing them. The services libraries offer must evolve in concert with these changes. This talk will provide a general overview of the ways in which altmetrics complement traditional citation metrics and will explore how libraries can benefit from engaging with a broader set of metrics to reach a wide range of users. The talk will cover the roles librarians can play in helping researchers and institutions understand the benefits ...
