Towards A Critical Turn In Library Ux, Alison Hicks, Karen P. Nicholson, Maura Seale 2022 University College London

Towards A Critical Turn In Library Ux, Alison Hicks, Karen P. Nicholson, Maura Seale

FIMS Publications

In the past decade, cataloguing and classification and information literacy have experienced a critical turn, acknowledging the political, economic, and social forces that shape complex information environments. Library user experience (UX) has yet to undergo such a transformation, however; instead, it continues to be seen as a toolkit of value-neutral approaches for evaluating and improving library services and spaces to enhance user satisfaction and engagement. Library UX draws upon ethnography but is also informed by the principles and values of usability and design. Little attention has been paid to the origins or epistemological underpinnings of UX as a construct, the ...

Delivering Bad News: Crisis Communication Methods In Academic Libraries, Brittany O'Neill, Rebecca Kelley 2021 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Delivering Bad News: Crisis Communication Methods In Academic Libraries, Brittany O'Neill, Rebecca Kelley

Faculty Publications

This exploratory study analyzed the specific crisis communication methods of academic libraries. A survey was sent to library staff at Association of Research Libraries-member colleges and universities to describe if, who, when, and how they communicated bad news to their stakeholders for major, minor, and emerging crises. The findings show that respondents used multiple communication strategies, which varied based on the crisis. The data show that libraries communicated journal and database cancellations and health and safety emergencies more slowly than access issues and were more likely not to communicate those crises at all. Respondents also more frequently chose to communicate ...


Remembering Why: Finding Direction In The Face Of Unsustainable Collections Practices, Megan Barr 2021 Buffalo State

Remembering Why: Finding Direction In The Face Of Unsustainable Collections Practices, Megan Barr

Museum Studies Theses

Shifts in the philosophy and practices that guide museums have changed the way we collect and what we collect. However, professional standards and expectations related to the management and use of those collections have largely remained unaltered. Museum professionals are repeatedly confronted by the impracticality and near impossibility of achieving accepted professional standards when managing collections. It is clear that the profession needs to rethink the practices and policies that shape our daily work assumptions, but where do we begin? Using Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle as a guide, we will rearticulate our purpose and reexamine the practices that get ...

Supporting Faculty In Digital Landscapes, Elaine Thornton, Joel B. Thornton

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Faculty endeavors in digital landscapes continue to broaden as interests in research methods and teaching modalities expand. The library can play an important role in introducing these digital voyagers to pertinent information, tools, and resources that will help them meet their goals. In this session, the presenters detail their roles in guiding and supporting faculty seeking to access digital publishing approaches and tools as open educational resources (OER) creators and researchers venturing into text and data mining using library subscribed content. Sharing knowledge of available resources and platforms with faculty and applying focused project management strategies will also be discussed.
