Digital Projects Made Easy: It’S All About Partnerships, Daardi Sizemore, Anne Stenzel, Heidi J. Southworth

Anne Stenzel

This session will explain how digitization projects have evolved at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Learn from our mistakes and successes as we share our experiences digitizing and providing access to: photographs, oral histories, newspapers, electronic theses, and archival materials. We will share the training, workflow and documentation that we have developed and explain how University Archives projects have been outsourced both within and outside our library. We will also share information about our new institutional repository. This session is aimed at organizations in the early stages of their digitization efforts and those that want to see how others do it.

Honors Research Projects

This is a report from two surveys that I created and administered to students and faculty at Bierce library who came to the Circulation Desk or the Tech Desk, as well as some of my other findings when periodically looking around the library to see where students like to study or hang-out. There was a written survey given at the Circulation Desk, and a different survey given at the Tech Check-Out Desk.

‘The Willing Women Are Standing Waiting Now’: British Women, The Second World War, And The Women’S Library At The London School Of Economics And Political Science, Erin Doerner 2016 San Jose State University

‘The Willing Women Are Standing Waiting Now’: British Women, The Second World War, And The Women’S Library At The London School Of Economics And Political Science, Erin Doerner

SLIS Connecting

Since the end of the Second World War some 70 years ago, research and scholarship featuring wartime contributions of the average British citizenhasfocused largely on men's experiences of combat, the various roles of government agencies, or the assumed viability and tenacity of political and military leaders. The role of gender in the experience of war was often a side-note, not a focus of research. Since the 1960s, and more frequently since the late 1980s, a new wartime perspective has begun to be documented and explored in academic and literary scholarship - that of British women.

This study examines primary materials ...


Core Values: Intellectual Freedom And Privacy In Public Libraries, Stephanie A. Evans 2016 University of Southern Mississippi

Core Values: Intellectual Freedom And Privacy In Public Libraries, Stephanie A. Evans

SLIS Connecting

With the passing of the USA Patriot Act in 2001 following the events of 9/11, libraries on the national scale have had to staunchly defend issues of privacy and confidentially more-so than ever before. Evidence of this lies not only in statements within the ALA’s Resolution on the USA PATRIOT Act and Libraries but also in other core documents which guide policy development in public libraries (ALA 2005). Intellectual Freedom and privacy are two of the major issues addressed and protected by the American Library Association through the Office of Intellectual Freedom and the Library Bill of Rights ...

Forging A New Path: Faculty Buy-In For The Institutional Repository And Open Access Publishing, Carol G. Hixson, Tina Neville, Deborah Henry

Tina Neville

Many institutions with institutional repositories have had difficulty getting faculty buy-in to add their content to the institutional repository. The University of South Florida St. Petersburg (USFSP), a separately accredited institution within the USF System, has experienced significant buy-in from its faculty for depositing materials in the institutional repository, known as the USFSP Digital Archive. In a small institution of 5000 students, we have established collections for over one quarter of our faculty, with almost 1400 separate submissions in only two years. Faculty have also developed an understanding of and appreciation for open-access publishing and now consult with the library ...

"Capstone Officials" And Public Records: Risk, Buy-In, And Archival Selection, Ruth E. Bryan 2016 University of Kentucky

"Capstone Officials" And Public Records: Risk, Buy-In, And Archival Selection, Ruth E. Bryan

Ruth E. Bryan

Use of records schedules as appraisal tools works well for routine records held by low-level employees in public institutions. Records created by top-level public officials, however, can be more challenging to schedule. Using NARA's recent definition of "capstone officials" as a starting concept, panelists representing public universities and state and federal governments present case studies from their own institutions dealing with policy creation for capstone officials' records, records schedules and public records laws, and archival selection.
