Open Access Metadata For Journals In Directory Of Open Access Journals: Who, How, And What Scheme?, Lisa E. Cheby 2016 San Jose State University

Open Access Metadata For Journals In Directory Of Open Access Journals: Who, How, And What Scheme?, Lisa E. Cheby

iSchool Student Research Journal

Open access (OA) is a form of publication that allows some level of free access to scholarly publications. The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) is a repository to which OA journals may apply and upload content to increase discoverability. OA also refers to metadata that is freely available for harvesting. In making metadata open access, standards for schemes and protocols are needed to facilitate interoperability. For open access journals, such as those listed in the DOAJ, providing open access metadata in a form that promotes interoperability is essential for discoverability of their content. This paper investigates what standards exist ...

Pathways To Open Access : The Story Of An Institutional Repository And How We Built It., Dwayne Buttler, Rachel Howard, Sarah Frankel 2016 University of Louisville

Pathways To Open Access : The Story Of An Institutional Repository And How We Built It., Dwayne Buttler, Rachel Howard, Sarah Frankel

Sarah Frankel

The central purpose of an institutional repository (IR) is providing open access to scholarship. That scholarship originates primarily through the work of faculty and students at research institutions, leading research libraries to embrace IRs and the scholarly communication movement. IRs typically include student theses and dissertations and faculty publications but sometimes extend far beyond to institutional records and documents. Launching an IR requires significant collaborative work across disparate specialties and institutional structures to establish policies, workflows, configure metadata and technology for retrieval, and fashion outreach and ongoing support to the administrators and ultimately provide mediated support to the scholars who ...

Volume 21 Issue 4 Introduction, Joan Petit

OLA Quarterly

Oregon libraries provide an incredible array of resources and services, but sometimes we struggle to educate our users and each other about all that is available. Over the past several years, many libraries have become more intentional in our efforts to market and promote our offerings, through traditional PR and advertisements as well as newer approaches like social media. However, we may lack the formal training and expertise to do this well—marketing is not a class offered in all library school programs—and, even with appropriate training, we may lack the budget and staff to implement a large-scale marketing ...


Communicating With Library Donors, Marilyn K. Moody 2016 Portland State University

Communicating With Library Donors, Marilyn K. Moody

OLA Quarterly

How do you communicate effectively with donors and potential donors? What does that communication look like? Libraries often envision donor communications as including only direct fundraising requests. Communications with donors, however, encompass a wide range of activities, is ongoing, and may even span decades with an individual donor. Library staff not directly involved with fundraising may not even think about donors as part of their user audience, but almost everyone who works in a library has a potential role in communicating with donors.


The Role Of Stories In Library Marketing And Communications, Clarissa J. Mansfield 2016 Western Washington University

The Role Of Stories In Library Marketing And Communications, Clarissa J. Mansfield

OLA Quarterly

The complex, evolving, 21st-century library is not just about books or resources; it’s not just about buildings and spaces. Despite providing a wide range of services, materials, unique programs and collections, subject area expertise, research assistance, and access to both print and online resources, libraries often struggle with effectively communicating all that they offer. Additionally, the ability of libraries to communicate their value and garner financial support is increasingly important when faced with shrinking budgets and competing needs.

When considering how to develop a strategic marketing and communications plan, it is helpful to conceptualize the work of ...

Combining Faculty, Instructional Design, And Library Services To Provide Students A Framework For Information Evaluation, Linda Leake, Samantha Mcclellan

Samantha McClellan

The creation of the course-embedded Critical Thinking & information Evaluation Module series resulted from the need for undergraduate students to start their academic careers with a framework for evaluating information. Pulling from the Paul-Elder Critical Thinking Framework and focusing abstract information literacy concepts on the commonly-used resources of Wikipedia, Google, and scholarly journal articles, the presenters will delve into module creation to implementation of these modules and discuss the logistics of this process to guide other faculty-librarian-instruction designer collaborations.

Challenging Classification Bias With Linked Data, Juliya Borie, F. Tim Knight, Jordan Hale 2016 University of Toronto

Challenging Classification Bias With Linked Data, Juliya Borie, F. Tim Knight, Jordan Hale

Librarian Publications & Presentations

Can library classification systems find new ways to deal with charges of bias? Can linked data contribute a more inclusive representation of diverse voices and communities? This panel will discuss the inherent biases present in cataloguing and classification, and consider the potential for linked data to provide a space to highlight and explore the challenging political issues that can arise in our work. These include issues related to jurisdiction, territory, and community with examples drawn from legal classification and the classification of cartographic resources.


Accessibility: Electronic And Information Technologies (Eit), Wendy Walker, Teressa M. Keenan 2016 University of Montana - Missoula

Accessibility: Electronic And Information Technologies (Eit), Wendy Walker, Teressa M. Keenan

Mansfield Library Faculty Publications

In 2014, the President of the University of Montana (UM) signed a resolution agreement with the Department of Education Office for Civil Rights regarding the accessibility of electronic and information technology (EIT) at UM. Since that time, we have been learning about accessibility and accessible technologies and have investigated the accessibility of EIT-based services at the Mansfield Library. We will share what we have learned about EIT accessibility; key results from our assessment of CONTENTdm; and a new cataloging initiative that improves the discoverability of accessible materials in library collections.
