Bridging The Gap: Selected Works And Topscholar Galleries, Sue Lynn McDaniel, Todd J. Seguin Mr 2016 Western Kentucky University

Bridging The Gap: Selected Works And Topscholar Galleries, Sue Lynn Mcdaniel, Todd J. Seguin Mr

Kentucky Convergence Conference

Higher education’s scholars utilize online catalogs and library finding aids with ease. However, for the larger community, accessing scholars’ Selected Works and online galleries with topical themes is a helpful intermediary step. Non-scholars often explore and produce scholarship, seek out obscure online sources and gladly volunteer to document cultural resources.Every day historically valuable ephemera is thrown away due to an ignorance of its value to research. Special Collections Librarians partnering with Scholarly Communication Specialists utilize social media to create a gateway and make certain that taxpaying interested parties do not miss the wealth of primary sources compiled over ...

Critical Collection Analysis: Using Dh Tools To Contextualize Historical Collecting Patterns Within A Political Framework, Lydia Bello, Nina Clements, Madelynn Dickerson, Margaret Hogarth 2016 Claremont University Consortium

Critical Collection Analysis: Using Dh Tools To Contextualize Historical Collecting Patterns Within A Political Framework, Lydia Bello, Nina Clements, Madelynn Dickerson, Margaret Hogarth

Library Staff Publications and Research

With the growth of digital humanities and a wide range of free and open source analysis tools at our fingertips, librarians have a unique opportunity to use these new tools to critically analyze library collections. Moving beyond usage and budgets, strategies such as text analysis, temporal pattern finding and data visualization offer insights into the structure and content of our collections, which in turn supports evidenced-based decision-making for future acquisitions. At the Claremont Colleges Library, librarians across divisions have been encouraged to learn tools and approaches to Digital Humanities, and apply these principles to our own work and relationships with ...


Beyond The Matrix: Repository Services For Qualitative Data, Sebastian Karcher, Dessi Kirilova, Nic Weber 2016 Syracuse University

Beyond The Matrix: Repository Services For Qualitative Data, Sebastian Karcher, Dessi Kirilova, Nic Weber

Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs

The Qualitative Data Repository (QDR) provides infrastructure and guidance for the sharing and reuse of digital data used in qualitative and multi-method social inquiry. In this paper we describe some of the repository’s early experiences providing services developed specifically for the curation of qualitative research data. We focus on QDR’s efforts to address two key challenges for qualitative data sharing. The first challenge concerns constraints on data sharing in order to protect human participants and their identities and to comply with copyright laws. The second set of challenges addresses the unique characteristics of qualitative data and their relationship ...

From Chaos To Community: Two Libraries Finding A Unified Direction, Melissa E. Johnson, Rod Bustos, Sandra Bandy 2016 Augusta University

From Chaos To Community: Two Libraries Finding A Unified Direction, Melissa E. Johnson, Rod Bustos, Sandra Bandy

Charleston Library Conference

In January 2013, the University System of Georgia Board of Regents consolidated a health sciences university and a predominantly undergraduate liberal arts university. Each university had its own library, and the consolidation presented several challenges to the newly formed University Libraries. One major challenge was unifying the catalog as each library follows different classification standards. National Library of Medicine call numbers and Medical Subject Headings were utilized on the Health Sciences campus, and Library of Congress call numbers and subject headings were used on the liberal arts campus. After recognizing the differences in the catalog records, the Libraries asked “Where ...


Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe: E‐Books Changed Our Workflow, Denise D. Novak, Terry Hurlbert 2016 Carnegie Mellon University

Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe: E‐Books Changed Our Workflow, Denise D. Novak, Terry Hurlbert

Charleston Library Conference

As the popularity and sheer number of e‐books increased, it became evident that our existing process or workflow for acquiring and cataloging them would need some modification. This presentation will explain how the Carnegie Mellon University Libraries Technical Services implemented changes in workflow for ordering and cataloging e‐books. Including the topics of technology, user expectations, and getting reference librarians on board, we’ll cover the why of e‐books, what has gone well, and where we go from here.


Rapid Collections Surveying With Book Traces @ Uva, Kristin Jensen, Carla H. Lee 2016 University of Virginia Library

Rapid Collections Surveying With Book Traces @ Uva, Kristin Jensen, Carla H. Lee

Charleston Library Conference

Many donated books in circulating collections have value as historical artifacts due to unique interventions by their former owners, such as marginalia, inscriptions, and insertions. These interventions can potentially offer a trove of evidence of how books have been consumed across time and what they meant to past cultures, but are generally undocumented and therefore undiscoverable through library catalogs. Moreover, as circulating copies, these books may be vulnerable to damage, loss, and withdrawal. Book Traces @ UVa is a two‐year effort to survey pre‐1923 books in the University of Virginia Library circulating collection for uniquely modified volumes and enhance ...


Outsourced And Overwhelmed: Gaining A Grasp On Managing Electronic Resources, Matthew D. Harrington 2016 North Carolina State University at Raleigh

Outsourced And Overwhelmed: Gaining A Grasp On Managing Electronic Resources, Matthew D. Harrington

Charleston Library Conference

Outsourcing the management of electronic journals has significantly reduced the autonomy academic libraries have over their collections’ metadata, as well as the ways in which that data is collected, organized, and made available to the library. However, the ephemerality of this metadata makes quality control burdensome and costly on the corporate end and necessitates ongoing title tracking and maintenance for the library. As a result, the quality of data in outsourced knowledge bases is often inversely proportional to the library’s tolerance of “bad data,” as well as its inability to tell the difference. This session demonstrates how an MS ...


Acquisitions Everywhere: Modeling An Acquisitions Data Standard To Connect A Distributed Environment, Eric M. Hanson, Paul W. Lightcap, Matthew R. Miguez 2016 North Carolina State University Libraries

Acquisitions Everywhere: Modeling An Acquisitions Data Standard To Connect A Distributed Environment, Eric M. Hanson, Paul W. Lightcap, Matthew R. Miguez

Charleston Library Conference

Acquisitions functions remain operationally crucial in providing access to paid information resources, but data formats and workflows utilized within library acquisitions remain primarily within the traditional integrated library system (ILS). As libraries have evolved to use distributed systems to manage information resources, so too must acquisitions functions adapt to an environment that may include the ILS, e‐resource management systems (ERMS), institutional repositories (IR), and other digital asset management systems (DAMS).

This presentation is intended to articulate a vision for applying standards‐based practice—as already employed for resource description—to acquisitions functions in a variety of metadata schema and ...

This groundbreaking initiative seeks to change the public’s perception of libraries and concludes that the longterm health of libraries is essential to the long-term health of the communities they serve. Four strategic opportunities for action ...

Beer And Libraries? Challenging The Community’S View Of The Public Library, Ross Betzer 2016 Multnomah County Library

Beer And Libraries? Challenging The Community’S View Of The Public Library, Ross Betzer

OLA Quarterly

When you think about beer, you might not think about your local library. You almost certainly are not going to think about the Aspen Institute’s 2014 report, Rising to the Challenge: Re-Envisioning Public Libraries. Nevertheless, these three things—beer, libraries, Rising to the Challenge—all came together in a digital collection created by Multnomah County Library called Portland Brew Stories.

The Portland Brew Stories project was a community-focused effort to gather and share images and other primary documents that celebrate beer culture in Portland and Multnomah County. Planning began in 2014, the bulk of the project work took place ...


Putting Our Money Where Our Customers Will Be: Investing In Digital Collections Today To Ensure A Customer Base Tomorrow, Catherine Jasper 2016 Collection Development Librarian, Deschutes Public Library

Putting Our Money Where Our Customers Will Be: Investing In Digital Collections Today To Ensure A Customer Base Tomorrow, Catherine Jasper

OLA Quarterly

The Aspen Institute’s report Rising to the Challenge: Re-Envisioning Public Libraries identifies four key strategies for success for public libraries in the digital age. The second of these is “Provide Access to Content in All Formats,” and asserts that an immediate and major challenge is “being able to procure and share e-books and other digital content on the same basis as physical versions” (Garner, 2014, p. 36). Deschutes Public Library has given digital collections high priority over the years – through training, marketing and aggressively funding this collection. These efforts have resulted in higher than typical circulation and a strong ...


Douglas County’S ‘Long And Winding Road’, Harold A. Hayes 2016 Douglas County Library System

Douglas County’S ‘Long And Winding Road’, Harold A. Hayes

OLA Quarterly

The Douglas County Library System (DCLS) formed in 1953 with the main library located in the courthouse in Roseburg, eight branches located in the several small communities, and a bookmobile. The benefits included the economy of scale, access to a wider collection, and shared functions with greater internal support. Today the DCLS includes the main library in Roseburg, completed in 1994, and 10 branches located throughout the county. Winston and Riddle got their libraries after the system was formed, in 1964 and 1966 respectively.

In a county that has historically relied on timber sale taxes, budget reductions began as early ...

See To Read!, Jane Corry, Nan Heim

OLA Quarterly

In 2013, the Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 3000, the Children’s Vision Screening Act, requiring all children entering public school kindergarten to have a vision screening.

As the lobbyist for the Oregon Academy of Ophthalmology, Nan worked in support ofthis legislation. Joannah Vaughn, director of children’s vision screening at Oregon Health and Science University’s Elks Children’s Eye Clinic, also supported the legislation. She and her staff were already screening several thousand children at Head Start programs every year. One day at the Capitol, she and Nan were discussing how to get thousands of more children screened ...
