The Past, Present, And Future Of Demand Driven Acquisitions, Edward A. Goedeken, Karen G. Lawson 2015 Iowa State University

The Past, Present, And Future Of Demand Driven Acquisitions, Edward A. Goedeken, Karen G. Lawson

Karen Lawson

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 ...

Mapping Lis Electives Across The Field: Collaborative Student Learning Outcome Development And Assessment, Bradley Wade Bishop, Theresa Parrish, Tony H. Grubesic 2015 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Mapping Lis Electives Across The Field: Collaborative Student Learning Outcome Development And Assessment, Bradley Wade Bishop, Theresa Parrish, Tony H. Grubesic

Bradley Wade Bishop

In higher education’s environment of accountability, the development and assessment of student learning outcomes (SLOs) are driven by both external stakeholder requirements for accreditation and internal institutional pressures to demonstrate student learning as the core function of universities and colleges. This paper presents a framework to reduce faculty workload and increase standardization of SLOs for LIS electives across multiple schools. The framework includes a value-added assessment with results that show a significant increase in the overall scores and specifically in areas of focus for the elective. This approach provides a framework for other popular LIS electives to collaborate across ...

Open Access And The Health Professions, Musselman Library

Open Access Week at Gettysburg College

Health Sciences students at Gettysburg College have bountiful access to scholarly and medical publications, but what happens after graduation? When you enter a health profession, will you be able to access the information you need to make informed decisions on the job?

Students are asking hard questions about the cost of information, who pays, and why it matters (see this SURGE blog post for one perspective: Information – Access:Denied). Learn more about the publishing system that fuels your learning, including the growing importance of “open access” publishing.

Please join us for a fun program during Open Access Week. This is ...


Did I Sign My Rights Away? Copyright For Authors, Janelle L. Wertzberger 2014 Gettysburg College

Did I Sign My Rights Away? Copyright For Authors, Janelle L. Wertzberger

Open Access Week at Gettysburg College

Most authors sign publication contracts without reading them carefully, and consequently transfer all rights to a publisher. Is there another option? (Yes, there is!)

Join us for Did I sign my rights away? Copyright for authors on Wednesday, 10/22/14, at noon (Specialty Dining Room 19).

This session will explain copyright for authors in plain English. Hear successful strategies used by academic authors, review a typical publication contract, and learn about tools that can help you retain the rights you wish to keep while continuing to work with scholarly publishers. If you like, bring a recent publication contract that ...

"In The Early Days Of A Better Nation": Enhancing The Power Of Metadata Today With Linked Data Principles, John Mark Ockerbloom

John Mark Ockerbloom

We need not wait for the wholesale redesign of metadata and workflows to semantic web and linked data technologies in order to begin taking advantage of their design principles. This talk will show how metadata organized and presented in ways that encourage sharing, widespread reuse, and broad collaboration organized around community "hubs" can significantly improve resource discovery as well as other library services and information needs. Examples will be shown from systems designed around linked data standards and technologies and systems not so designed. While standard linked data formats and interfaces can aid in metadata reuse and maintenance, more general ...

Your Publication, Your Choice: Choosing The Right Open Access Journal, Carla Cantagallo, Mary Congleton, Susan Foster-Harper, Adrian K. Ho

Generation Open: Researchers' Roles in the Age of Openness

An increasing number of research funders require free public access to the outcomes of funded research. To comply with the requirement, some researchers choose to publish their findings in open access journals. Given that there are so many choices, what should researchers consider when choosing an open access journal to publish?

To celebrate Open Access Week (October 20-26, 2014), the University of Kentucky Libraries hosted a workshop that aimed to help you answer the above question.

Information about open access is available from the University of Kentucky Libraries open access research guide.

It's Debatable: Tracking Changes In Student Opinions On Drug Policies After Classroom Debate, Carolyn Schubert, Lara Sapp, Elizabeth Howley

Libraries

This poster provides a case study integrating ethical reasoning and debate into an undergraduate Health Sciences course on drugs uses, effects, and policies. The course instructor, Health Sciences and Nursing Librarian, and JMU Debate Team coaches collaborated on building the tiered assignment of annotated bibliographies and classroom student debates. The results document pre and post surveys of student opinions regarding each of the debate topics, providing insight on how opinions changed through the course of this assignment.
