Chart Your Course, Kenya S. Flash, Caroline Zeglen, Stephanie Miranda 2018 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Chart Your Course, Kenya S. Flash, Caroline Zeglen, Stephanie Miranda

Faculty: Other Publications and Presentations -- UT Libraries

Library instruction is most effective when thoughtfully developed with faculty and integrated in a course. But how do you determine which faculty partnerships will have the most impact? In this poster, we discuss the process of curriculum mapping in an agriculture program, how it reveals new opportunities for library instruction, and pitfalls to avoid when charting your course. In fall 2016, librarians at the University of Tennessee Hodges Library and Pendergrass Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine Library developed learning outcomes for library instruction and services using feedback from staff and the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy. We mapped or coded the ...


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 ...

Student Employment Matters: Mapping Literacies And Learning Outcomes In Special And Digital Collections, Erin Passehl-Stoddart 2017 University of Idaho

Student Employment Matters: Mapping Literacies And Learning Outcomes In Special And Digital Collections, Erin Passehl-Stoddart

Erin Passehl-Stoddart

This poster presents interviews conducted with undergraduate students who worked with archival collections to learn about their experiences and mapping major job responsibilities and activities to learning outcomes. These are examined using concepts from ACRL’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, ACRL Visual Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, and the SAA/ACRL/RBMS Joint Task Force on the Development of Guidelines for Primary Source Literacy. This research suggests that student worker experiences play a fundamental role in shaping lifelong information literacy skills and help libraries strategically communicate impacts on student learning, retention, success, and workplace readiness.

  • Undergraduate research
  • Conference posters and presentations
  • Archival materials
  • Oral histories
  • Digitized university collections

IR managers now need to understand the copyright issues surrounding a wide variety of materials and need to make well-reasoned decisions regarding their deposit into the IR. During this table talk, we’ll ...


Using Chat Metadata To Learn About Our Users, Vera J. Lux, Linda Rich 2017 Bowling Green State University - Main Campus

Using Chat Metadata To Learn About Our Users, Vera J. Lux, Linda Rich

Vera J Lux

The adoption of a proactive, popup chat service prompted an analysis of chat metadata and transcripts to gain a better understanding of our chat users for future decision-making. We analyzed the library pages from where chats initiated, examined chat transcript topics, and identified locations via IP addresses. Through this we learned more about our chat users and where they are most likely to encounter difficulties and seek assistance.

Learners’ physical performances can serve as focal objects for reflection and insight across a variety of contexts and content areas. This session brings together a set of projects that leverage the physical performances of learners, construct concrete and abstract representations of those performances, and investigate how learners reflect on and understand the relationships between their performances and target content—physics, health and fitness, data literacy and navigation, animal foraging, and climate change. The session will share findings and design principles from each of the studies around constructing technological scaffolds for physical performance reflections. The symposium highlights the various ways performance ...

Taking Care Of Business: Why Libraries Should Incorporate Listening Into Their Social Media Goals, Maria Atilano 2017 University of North Florida

Taking Care Of Business: Why Libraries Should Incorporate Listening Into Their Social Media Goals, Maria Atilano

Maria Atilano

The purpose of this article is to summarize the importance of practicing social listening and online engagement on behalf of one’s library. While the literature shows that libraries, both public and academic, often strategize their social media goals to include listening, a concerted effort should be made by all libraries with an online presence to take an active role in engagement. By including social listening in one’s social media plan, goals and objectives, a library can anticipate a higher rate of engagement and meaningful interactions with their patrons.

This project explores the peer-reviewed literature on urban agriculture (UA) research and associated scholarly publishing trends. UA research spans disciplines such as: agriculture, urban planning, government, health sciences, environmental sciences, water resources, economics, and conservation. In this study, seven databases were searched for peer-reviewed literature on UA. This poster explores UA research output by measuring the growth rate of peer reviewed research on UA (~18% from 1980-2015) and comparing to the growth of modern science (8-9%). Forty-one journal titles published greater than 5 articles on UA, showing how diverse the topic is. From this an analysis of related subjects was ...


Microbial Ecology Electronic Resources, Michael Bobb 2017 Iowa State University

Microbial Ecology Electronic Resources, Michael Bobb

Michael Bobb

Microbial ecology covers sub-disciplines of both microbiology and ecology. To put it briefly, it is the study of the roles and relationships that microorganisms (predominantly bacteria and fungi) have with the environment and other organisms within the environment. There is much overlap in the topic areas, and often research covers several different sub-disciplines simultaneously. Major topic areas within microbial ecology are ecology, microbiology, soil science, agriculture, bioremediation, environmental science, biogeography, biogeochemistry, oceanography, restoration ecology, and dentistry/biofilm biology. Researchers and research programs cover a broad spectrum of topics; for example, molecular researchers who are interested in the metabolic processes and ...

Peer Evaluation Of Teaching In An Online Information Literacy Course, Susan A. Vega García, Kristine Stacy-Bates, Jeff Alger, Rano Marupova 2017 Iowa State University

Peer Evaluation Of Teaching In An Online Information Literacy Course, Susan A. Vega García, Kristine Stacy-Bates, Jeff Alger, Rano Marupova

Jeff Alger

This paper reports on the development and implementation of a process of peer evaluation of teaching to assess librarian instruction in a high-enrollment online information literacy course for undergraduates. This paper also traces a shift within libraries from peer coaching to peer evaluation models. One common model for peer evaluation, using pre- and post-observation meetings between instructor and evaluator, as well as a formal summative report, has been adapted to focus attention on key aspects of online teaching. The paper also discusses the need for evaluating librarians’ online teaching performance, as distinct from online course design.

Likes, Shares And Follows: Launching A Facebook Page For Your Academic Library, Annie Jansen

JLAMS

This review provides (1) a discussion of best practices, including the content and frequency of posts, and (2) tips on how to get started on a library oriented page. Facebook is a powerful social media platform that, when used correctly, can have beneficial effects for academic library outreach and marketing. However, it is not a catch-all for engagement with students, staff, faculty, and the public. Engagement through Facebook needs to be carefully thought out and well-planned in order to meet the needs of library outreach and work toward the university and library strategic plan.
