Combining Faculty, Instructional Design, And Library Services To Provide Students A Framework For Information Evaluation, Linda Leake, Samantha McClellan 2016 University of Louisville

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.

University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium

Description: The MBLWHOI Library is partner in the NSF-funded EarthCube building block, GeoLink, whose goal is to push the boundaries of semantic technology in cross-repository discovery within the geosciences field. GeoLink has created ontology design patterns that link together: the MBLWHOI Library’s Woods Hole Open Access Server (WHOAS); data repositories, including Rolling Deck to Repository (R2R), Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO), Integrated Earth Data Applications (IEDA), Long-Term Ecological Research Network (LTER), DataONE and the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP); the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded awards; and American Geophysical Union (AGU) conference presentations. ­

The Video Lifecycle: Selection And Processing Of Video Collections, Barbara Bergman, Jessica Schomberg, Dorie Kurtz 2016 Minnesota State University - Mankato

The Video Lifecycle: Selection And Processing Of Video Collections, Barbara Bergman, Jessica Schomberg, Dorie Kurtz

Jessica Schomberg

This session is geared towards library staff who would like to increase practical knowledge about collection development and management of DVDs and streaming videos. Video selection includes identifying videos of interest, forming relationships with vendors, issues of pricing, licensing, and copyright fair use versus public performance rights. Video processing involves the steps in providing access to videos through cataloging for local consumption. This includes decisions such as genre and subject heading choices, classification decision, special interest MARC fields. We'll also speak briefly on decisions about packaging, shelving, circulation, weeding, and preservation.

Building A Home-Brew Text Message Notification System For Sierra, R.C. Miessler 2016 Gettysburg College

Building A Home-Brew Text Message Notification System For Sierra, R.C. Miessler

Musselman Library Staff Publications

"I am not a developer" is a phrase I say more than I want. However, programming is something I've wanted to learn for a long time. When patrons began asking for text message notifications for circulating items, I took on the challenge to try to learn something new, and hacked together a basic text notification system that is both affordable and serves patron needs. Using the narrative of this tool's creation as a foundation, this presentation will provide resources to get started in web development for Sierra using SQL, PHP, and Twilio.


Examination Of Cataloging Assessment Values Using The Q Sort Method, Jessica Schomberg 2016 Minnesota State University - Mankato

Examination Of Cataloging Assessment Values Using The Q Sort Method, Jessica Schomberg

Jessica Schomberg

The intent of this project was to identify whether there is a gap between catalogers’ personal values related to cataloging assessment and their perceptions of their institutions’ values. This article uses Q methodology to contrast those perspectives. The Q-statements for this study were based on the discourse represented in a literature review of articles related to cataloging assessment. A factor analysis of Q-sorts was used to identify themes in participant perceptions. The patterns identified support the research question, while also suggesting that consensus may be built around the ideas of usability, service, and access.

Online Bibliographies For Shared Discovery, Jessica Schomberg 2016 Minnesota State University - Mankato

Online Bibliographies For Shared Discovery, Jessica Schomberg

Jessica Schomberg

A few years ago, I began investigating best practices in cataloging assessment. I started with a review of related literature to gather citations on the topic. As this work progressed, I found that researchers describe assessment, or pieces of assessment, using many different terms including evaluation, quality, workflow, cost, and production. They also write specifically about cataloging or broadly about technical services; of which cataloging or metadata is a part.


Video Collecting For The Sometimes Media Librarian: Tips And Tricks For Selecting, Purchasing, And Cataloging Videos For An Academic Library, Barbara Bergman, Victoria Peters, Jessica Schomberg 2016 Minnesota State University - Mankato

Video Collecting For The Sometimes Media Librarian: Tips And Tricks For Selecting, Purchasing, And Cataloging Videos For An Academic Library, Barbara Bergman, Victoria Peters, Jessica Schomberg

Jessica Schomberg

Video recordings present many quirks not experienced when purchasing and processing books. We summarize the evaluative processes involved for choosing videos, choosing vendors, and cataloging videos. As these processes involve several units within the library, cross-unit collaboration exploits the expertise of all participants. Our selection policy is largely driven by the curriculum. While we order some feature films, our primary focus is on educational recordings. This presents special problems, as educational video recordings are not advertised or reviewed as widely as books or feature films, and it is therefore more difficult to know what is available. In addition, audiovisual materials ...


Process Makes Perfect: Asking Your Target Audience What They Really Want To Know About You, Nichole M. Rustad 2016 University of Dayton

Process Makes Perfect: Asking Your Target Audience What They Really Want To Know About You, Nichole M. Rustad

Roesch Library Staff Publications

Libraries often find themselves communicating programs and services to different audiences — students, faculty, donors and the community. So what happens when you are tasked with creating a marketing piece to pique donors’ interest? How do you know what they want to know about you, and what do they already know? Accurately assessing what your audience already understands about your library services can be a challenging aspect of your project. This column describes how an academic library in Ohio learned more about its target market to create a piece that could bring about the results it wanted.
