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 ...


Classification Methods In Context At Theological Libraries: A Case Study, Chloe G. Noland 2017 San Jose State University

Classification Methods In Context At Theological Libraries: A Case Study, Chloe G. Noland

SLIS Student Research Journal

This case study explores issues of interoperability and shared collection management between two libraries – one community and one academic – located within the American Jewish University (AJU). AJU’s choice to use two separate classification systems, Library of Congress and Elazar, respectively, provides a necessary separation of academic and religious context, but limits record access between the two collections. Specifically, this study aims to answer the following core research question: is consolidation into one classification scheme both a realistic and helpful solution for increased interoperability? Examining the history, patron needs, and principles of arrangement in both systems provided further insights regarding ...

Keepers: Marking The Value Of The Books On My Shelves, Vassiliki Veros 2017 University of Technology Sydney

Keepers: Marking The Value Of The Books On My Shelves, Vassiliki Veros

Proceedings from the Document Academy

Lydia Pyne in her Object Lessons book, Bookshelf, says, “Bookshelves are dynamic, iterative objects that cue us to the social values we place on books and how we think books ought to be read.”

This cued me to reflect upon the books that I keep on my personal bookshelves and my deep engagement with them. This is evidenced through the markings and non-markings that my keeper books compelled me to make/not make. I then use my own engagement with my books to make various responses to positive and negative critiques of romance fiction.


Alma/Primo Management In A Post-Migration World, Kate Seago, Julene L. Jones 2017 University of Kentucky

Alma/Primo Management In A Post-Migration World, Kate Seago, Julene L. Jones

Kate Seago

While on Voyager, the University of Kentucky had a committee dedicated to handling releases and policies for the system. During our migration to Alma and Primo we moved to taskforces to manage the migration, putting that committee on hold. Post-migration, we revived the ILS Committee and updated the charge to handle Alma/Primo releases and policies. This presentation will briefly discuss the procedures we’re using to manage Alma and Primo releases, training, set policies, and communicate with library staff post-migration. We’d like to leave time for audience participation to find out how others are managing these processes at ...

Show Us Your Omaha: Combating Lgbtq+ Archival Silences, Angela J. Kroeger, Yumi Ohira, Amy Schindler 2017 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Show Us Your Omaha: Combating Lgbtq+ Archival Silences, Angela J. Kroeger, Yumi Ohira, Amy Schindler

Yumi Ohira

The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Libraries offers a variety of unique and specialized collections in the Archives & Special Collections (ASC) for UNO and Omaha community members. In 2015, ASC began planning for preserving and providing access to Omaha’s LGBTQ+ history through the Queer Omaha Archives. Archival silences were defined by archivist Rodney Carter as the manifestation of the actions of the powerful in denying the marginalized access to archives with further definition by archivists and researchers expanding this definition. The UNO Libraries has invested in developing digital engagement as a strategic priority through building infrastructure and expanding community partnerships. Infrastructure includes expert employees, metadata, systems to manage digital collections, and outreach. Partnerships consist of working with volunteers, donors, and community organizations. This presentation will discuss metadata, digital collections, and outreach related to the Queer Omaha Archives including: the challenges and successes encountered while making the LGBTQ+ materials accessible and discoverable online; improved workflows; the lessons learned during the launch of the initiative; and our ongoing and future community partnerships.

Arl Cataloger Librarian Roles And Responsibilities Now And In The Future, Jeanne M. K. Boydston, Joan M. Leysen

Joan M. Leysen

This article details the results of a 2011 study of cataloger librarians’ changing roles and responsibilities at academic Association of Research Libraries. The study participants, cataloging department heads, report that cataloger librarian roles are expanding to include cataloging more electronic resources and local hidden collections in addition to print materials. They are also creating non-MARC metadata. The increased usage of vendor products and services is also affecting the roles of cataloger librarians at some institutions. The article explores what skills cataloger librarians will need in the future and how libraries are providing training for that future.

Baby Snake Swallows Whale: Impacts And Insights From Winthrop’S Recent Ils Migration, Antje Mays 2017 Winthrop University

Baby Snake Swallows Whale: Impacts And Insights From Winthrop’S Recent Ils Migration, Antje Mays

Antje Mays

After over three decades with the same integrated library system (ILS), Winthrop University went live with a next-gen cloud-based system in July 2015. This article describes the last period with the old system, migration phases and training with the new system, and observations following the go-live.

Before signing on in spring 2014, information was gathered on the new system, followed by examination of data structures, translation tables,and preparations for data structures which did not directly translate from the old system to the new. The new vendor's onboarding grouped several libraries at the same migration phase in a formal ...


What About Classification Bias?: Channeling Sandy Berman, F. Tim Knight 2017 Osgoode Hall Law School of York University

What About Classification Bias?: Channeling Sandy Berman, F. Tim Knight

Librarian Publications & Presentations

As libraries explore new avenues of information access, the need for a critical evaluation of our bibliographic tools is more important than ever. With the potential of the emerging semantic web and the promise of linked data, how will systems originally designed to organize closed physical collections translate to an increasingly fragmented digital information space? How will deep-seated cultural biases affect access to a cross-cultural information environment? This paper will review the work of Sandy Berman’s Prejudices and Antipathies: A Tract on the LC Subject Heads Concerning People aiming to explore a critical framework to evaluate the cultural interoperability ...


Functionality And Flair: Using Apis For Alma, Kathryn Lybarger 2017 University of Kentucky

Functionality And Flair: Using Apis For Alma, Kathryn Lybarger

Kathryn Lybarger

Alma as a web site lets us view, search, and edit our data in a variety of ways, but what if you want to do something slightly different? Fortunately, Ex Libris provides API access that allows you to add specialized functionality to your Alma workflows, or even access Alma's data through other web sites. In this presentation I will go over the basics of APIs, demonstrate how you can learn about and test them using the Ex Libris Developer Network, and show some examples of how they can be used to extend Alma's functionality.


Mainstreaming University Publications: Designing Collaboration Across Library Units For Discovery And Access, Cindy Cline, Ruth E. Bryan 2017 University of Kentucky

Mainstreaming University Publications: Designing Collaboration Across Library Units For Discovery And Access, Cindy Cline, Ruth E. Bryan

Ruth E. Bryan

Various divisions, branches, and departments within the University of Kentucky Libraries collect University publications, most especially the University Archives. Depending on the reasons for acquisition and the Library area's descriptive practices, the publications are more or less discoverable by fellow librarians and by researchers. Is it possible to develop workflows that allow the University Archivist to collect and maintain University publications at a collection or unit level, while simultaneously providing bibliographic item-level access to the same publications? In today's environment of high levels of technology, library and archives online management systems, and discovery systems, is it possible for ...

Reforma Oregon Chapter, 2017 Pacific University

Reforma Oregon Chapter

OLA Quarterly

During the 2014 OLA Annual Conference in Salem, a group of librarians met informally for lunch to discuss the idea of creating a chapter of REFORMA (The National Association to Promote Library and Information to Latinos and Spanish Speaking) in Oregon.

In our second meeting at the end of 2014 in the Gresham branch of the Multnomah County Library (MCL), we formalized the creation of the REFORMA Oregon Chapter. By mid-2015, we became a Round Table in OLA. During this short period of time, we have increased in numbers, organized well-attended presentations during OLA conferences, held Mock Pura Belpré Awards ...

Libros For Oregon: Collections Connect Communities A New Lsta Grant To Help More Oregon Libraries Take Advantage Of The Guadalajara Book Fair, Deborah Gitlitz

OLA Quarterly

Acquiring good books in Spanish for our libraries is a perennial challenge. In the fall of 2015, a discussion arose on some Oregon library listservs about the challenge of connecting our patrons with culturally-appropriate, high-quality Spanish books. Author Gitlitz gathered a team to put together an LSTA grant proposal for a project called “Libros for Oregon,” with a goal of increasing access to high-quality Spanish language books for the users of Oregon libraries, particularly smaller, rural libraries.

The project has three parts: (1) form an Oregon library book-buying cooperative (with new participants each year) to purchase materials for members at ...


Impacting Rural Hispanic Communities By Reaching Out, Connecting And Providing Services At Different Levels, Patty Lara 2017 Hood River County Library District

Impacting Rural Hispanic Communities By Reaching Out, Connecting And Providing Services At Different Levels, Patty Lara

OLA Quarterly

In my role as an outreach specialist, I have created community events, partnered with various organizations, and participated in nontraditional programs in order to attract the vast Hispanic populations in the area to the various Hood River County libraries.

Hood River County is a rural community, and an estimated 31 percent of the population is Hispanic. The great thing about this community is that it has invested its efforts in honoring and accepting the Hispanic culture and bringing the community together as a whole. There is a little town named Odell, about eight miles south of Hood River, where I ...
