Crowdsourcing Metadata: The Revolutionary Cataloging Interface And How It Can Help Your Library Expose And Promote Hidden Collections, Samuel T. Barber 2020 CSU Fullerton

Crowdsourcing Metadata: The Revolutionary Cataloging Interface And How It Can Help Your Library Expose And Promote Hidden Collections, Samuel T. Barber

Digital Initiatives Symposium

The crowdsourcing of metadata to expose and promote hidden collections is a significant and growing development in libraries, archives and museums, and offers hitherto unparalleled mass-collaborative potential for digital humanities projects. Originating from the field of citizen science, the online Zooniverse platform has been successfully utilized for this purpose by institutions including the Imperial War Museum, the Folger and the Huntington. This session presents recently published original research1 in order to analyze and explain the automated quality control features of this major metadata crowdsourcing digital platform. The results, it is argued, are truly revolutionary. We conclude with a brief ...

“Mapping Manuscript Migrations” is a digital humanities project that brings together three distinct data sets about the histories of more than 215,000 medieval and Renaissance manuscripts for browsing, searching, and visualization. Four leading institutions from Great Britain, France, Finland, and the United States collaborated on this project, pooling their expertise in Semantic Web technologies and medieval manuscript curation and research, as well as contributing their own data from the three contrasting datasets. The Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts at the University of Pennsylvania, the Medieval Manuscripts Catalogue at the University of Oxford, and the Bibale database from the Institut de ...


Lightning Talk: Positioning An Institutional Repository To Respond To Social Justice Issues, Sarah Hicks 2020 Duquesne University

Lightning Talk: Positioning An Institutional Repository To Respond To Social Justice Issues, Sarah Hicks

Digital Initiatives Symposium

The Duquesne Scholarship Collection (DSC), like so many others, was originally only home to Electronic Theses and Dissertations, Open Access Faculty Works, student research materials, and archival works. In order to thoughtfully expand the repository into something more dynamic and reflective of the university’s present, the DSC managers started with the strengths of the existing digital collections, and the formative documents of the university’s founding congregation, the Spiritans. This link to Spiritan charism allowed the DSC managers to add collections with a tilt towards social justice – collections that could be beneficial to those outside of the university community ...

Using Augmented And Virtual Reality In Information Literacy Instruction To Reduce Library Anxiety In Non-Traditional And International Students, Angela Sample 2020 Oral Roberts University

Using Augmented And Virtual Reality In Information Literacy Instruction To Reduce Library Anxiety In Non-Traditional And International Students, Angela Sample

College of Science and Engineering Faculty Research and Scholarship

Throughout the early years, the Oral Roberts University (ORU) Library held a place of pre-eminence on campus. ORU’s founder envisioned the Library as central to all academic function and scholarship. Under the direction of the founding Dean of Learning Resources, the Library was an early pioneer in innovative technologies and methods. However, over time, as the case with many academic libraries, the Library’s reputation as an institution crucial to the academic work on campus had diminished.

A team of librarians is now engaged in programs aimed at repositioning the Library as the university's hub of learning. Toward ...


How To Make Services Sustainable Without Losing Friends Or Making Enemies, Jennifer Stout 2020 Georgia Southern University

How To Make Services Sustainable Without Losing Friends Or Making Enemies, Jennifer Stout

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

The Teaching Librarians at Virginia Commonwealth University Libraries have traditionally offered in-person library instruction to all sections of UNIV 112 and UNIV 200, two writing and research intensive courses all students are required to take which are taught out of the Department of Focused Inquiry (FI). In Spring 2018, we realized that our teaching load had become unsustainable and, with the blessing of FI leadership, made the difficult decision to end in-person instruction for UNIV 112.

In this presentation, I will cover how we handled this transformation of services without jeopardizing the immensely positive relationship we have with FI. Over ...


Citations As Expressions Of Fairness, Helpfulness, And Decorum, Drew Nathaniel Keane 2020 Georgia Southern University

Citations As Expressions Of Fairness, Helpfulness, And Decorum, Drew Nathaniel Keane

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Much of the literature on academic integrity focuses on misconduct; there is little discussion of what constitutes ethical academic practice (Macfarlane, Zhang, Pun (2014); Blum (2009); East and Donnelly (2012)). I argue for teaching ethical use of sources in terms of three social values that are expressed in context-specific aways: fairness, helpfulness, and decorum. I interrogate a number of examples to show how each of these values is necessary to make sense out of academic citation practice. Though we know concepts of originality, textual ownership, and citation are complex and differ across contexts, media, and cultures, plagiarism is still widely ...

Archives And Stem: The Perfect Formula For Immersive Cross-Disciplinary Instruction., Dawn N. Cannon-Rech, Autumn Johnson

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Reaching out to STEM Students beyond the one-shot requested instruction sessions is challenging. Creating faculty buy-in for non-traditional STEM instruction is doubly challenging. This poster will highlight a recent activity designed to draw STEM participation in utilizing a unique set of resources from the institution’s Archival Collections. Normally viewed as primarily relevant to history and humanities students, this collection provides the backbone for a fully immersive Escape Room Activity and exposure to primary sources normally not considered part of the normal STEM course work. The hands-on activity provides an opportunity for critical thinking, reflection, and teamwork. The poster will ...
