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 2017 Gettysburg College

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.

For several years the professional literature in librarianship has been preparing us for a shift away from traditional roles and services. This is right and proper since indeed this shift has taken place in the profession and few (if any ...

Journal Evaluation Tool, Shilpa Rele, Marie Kennedy, Nataly Blas 2017 Loyola Marymount University

Journal Evaluation Tool, Shilpa Rele, Marie Kennedy, Nataly Blas

LMU Librarian Publications & Presentations

The changing mechanisms of scholarly publishing may make it difficult for you to determine where to publish the results of your research or creative works. In order to assist you in making the best decisions for your work, and to avoid journals that may not be credible, the William H. Hannon Library has developed a rubric for the evaluation of journals. Our focus during the development of this tool was specifically to address the concerns of our Loyola Marymount University faculty about Open Access journals, but this rubric may be applied more broadly to any kind of journal.

Digital Renewal: Exposing Local Urban Planning Publications To A New Audience, Emily Stenberg 2017 Washington University in St. Louis

Digital Renewal: Exposing Local Urban Planning Publications To A New Audience, Emily Stenberg

University Libraries Presentations

In late 2015 the Art & Architecture librarian contacted the Digital Publishing Librarian about expanding access to a high-demand local book. This was a HUD report on the Pruitt-Igoe public housing project in St. Louis. Our university had the only print copy in circulation in the region, and the report was in high demand among design and urban planning students. Following consultation with the Copyright and Digital Access Librarian, it was decided to digitize the report and publish it in the repository. Since then at least five additional publications have been published online and have become part of the St. Louis ...

The Undue Cost Of Academic Publishing: Democratizing Information Access, Memo Cordova, Amber Sherman 2017 Boise State University

The Undue Cost Of Academic Publishing: Democratizing Information Access, Memo Cordova, Amber Sherman

Jose Guillermo "Memo" Cordova Silva

Many scholarly articles that contain research useful to the public are locked behind expensive subscription databases. Coupled with existing publishing and tenure/promotion practices, these contribute to a system that excludes the majority of citizens from accessing current academic findings. However, by publishing academic articles in open access journals instead, faculty at colleges and universities can play an important role in making it easier, and less expensive, for the public, media, and local leaders to read their work. This requires faculty to make different choices and a concurrent shift in how academic departments evaluate faculty publications.
