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 ...


Barriers To Oer Adoption (And Possible Solutions), Amanda Hovious 2017 University of North Texas

Barriers To Oer Adoption (And Possible Solutions), Amanda Hovious

Texas Conference on Institutional Repositories

Type of presentation: Full Session

ABSTRACT

In 2012, at the World Open Educational Resources Congress in Paris, UNESCO declared that governments within their powers should develop strategies and policies that promote open educational resources (OER) as an avenue toward the universal right of equity of access to education. Though OER has increased exponentially in availability since that time, there remain confounding factors that act as barriers to OER adoption, such as ease of discovery, ease of adaptability and re-use, and uncertainty regarding quality and sustainability. Numerous studies have examined these barriers, and these studies should be of concern to librarians ...


Deciphering Signatures For Improved Discoverability Of Etds, Stacey Wolf, Kevin Yanowski 2017 University of North Texas

Deciphering Signatures For Improved Discoverability Of Etds, Stacey Wolf, Kevin Yanowski

Texas Conference on Institutional Repositories

Ever look at a signature and realize you can’t read the name, even though the letters look almost legible? Now imagine there is not a printed name near that signature. Multiply this issue by 2-4 names per item in a collection of thousands. The University of North Texas Libraries recently ran into this problem when adding metadata to recently-digitized theses and dissertations (ETDs) from the 1930s to 1990s. Deciphering the signatures proved difficult and time-consuming because centralized employee rosters do not exist for every year spanning the scope of the ETDs. Without these rosters, the UNT Library catalogers could ...


We Need To Talk: Educating Internal Stakeholders On Repository Needs, James Williamson, Felicia Williamson 2017 Southern Methodist University

We Need To Talk: Educating Internal Stakeholders On Repository Needs, James Williamson, Felicia Williamson

Texas Conference on Institutional Repositories

In creating, managing, and adapting digital collections, managers often face hurdles of technical misunderstanding and sometimes, intimidation. By educating internal stakeholders and creating allies, information managers can facilitate institutional change and are much more able to request and receive funding to pursue innovative programs requiring technical infrastructure.

Felicia Williamson, Archivist at the Dallas Holocaust Museum, will discuss the ongoing efforts to build a more robust technical infrastructure at a small non-profit Museum. Former efforts did not employ metadata standards. Moreover, online access to collections seemed a far off goal. Two main needs emerged: to create and maintain robust metadata and ...

Volume 23 Issue 1 Introduction, Lynne Stahl

OLA Quarterly

I feel honored and fortunate to have been asked to introduce this issue of the OLA Quarterly, and, having lived in Oregon for less than two years, not a little daunted in light of my relative newness to the state. Neither a longtime Oregonian nor even yet a fully credentialed librarian, I am hardly the fittest person imaginable to introduce a journal issue focused on Oregon librarians’ response to broad and dramatic changes. And yet, in the same way that one can benefit greatly from the distanced perspective of a different set of eyes looking over a draft of writing ...

Digital Public Library Of America (Dpla) & Metadata, Anneliese Dehner

Northwest IR User Group

More Metadata: How do you evaluate the quality of your metadata? How do you determine where to put your energies when approaching a metadata cleanup project? What's in your metadata toolset and what's the best tool for the job? When is it a good idea to normalize your metadata to controlled vocabularies, and does your IR even allow this kind of normalization? Discussion of the nuts and bolts of metadata cleanup, and how to do it with limited staff time. Possible activity: uploading a sample dataset to OpenRefine (http://openrefine.org/), evaluating the set against the requirements of ...

Mind The Gap: Curating Digital Commons Metadata For Share, Lisa Palmer, Emily Stenberg, Wendy C. Robertson, Joanne Paterson 2017 University of Massachusetts Medical School

Mind The Gap: Curating Digital Commons Metadata For Share, Lisa Palmer, Emily Stenberg, Wendy C. Robertson, Joanne Paterson

Wendy C Robertson

The goal of the SHARE initiative, a partnership between the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the Center for Open Science (COS), is to build a “free, open, data set about research and scholarly activities across their life cycle.” As of October 12, 2016, 129 repositories and publishers have made metadata available to SHARE for harvesting, and the aggregated data set is available for searching. Many metadata providers are institutional repositories utilizing the bepress Digital Commons platform whose metadata is harvested through the OAI-PMH (Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting) protocol for repository interoperability.

As part of the 2016-2017 ...


A Library Matter Of Genocide: The Library Of Congress And The Historiography Of The Native American Holocaust, Michael Q. Dudley 2017 University of Winnipeg

A Library Matter Of Genocide: The Library Of Congress And The Historiography Of The Native American Holocaust, Michael Q. Dudley

The International Indigenous Policy Journal

For decades, Indigenous experiences of mass killings, atrocities, ethnic cleansing, and assimilation have been marginalized from genocide studies due to the ways in which knowledge is constructed in the field, specifically in terms of its focus on definitions and prototype-based conceptions. This article argues that these exclusions are not merely owed to discourses internal to genocide studies, but are affirmed by conventional library terminologies for the purposes of knowledge organization and information retrieval in the form of Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) and classification, as applied to books regarding genocidal colonial encounters with Indigenous Peoples. These headings largely exhibit ...


With Careful Consideration And Managed Expectations: Migration From Ex Libris' Voyager To Ex Libris' Alma/Primo, Julene L. Jones 2017 University of Kentucky

With Careful Consideration And Managed Expectations: Migration From Ex Libris' Voyager To Ex Libris' Alma/Primo, Julene L. Jones

Julene L. Jones

The University of Kentucky migrated from their long-standing ILS, Ex Libris Voyager with SFX, to Ex Libris Alma (and Primo) in six short months! As the person who runs reports and performs authority control and batch changes to UK’s MARC metadata for print resources, Julene was responsible for migrating that metadata so that it displayed well in Alma / Primo with minimal data loss, for training all library faculty and staff on the use of Resource Management and Analytics, and for coordinating the multitude of migration events with the Systems, Acquisitions, Circulation, Electronic Resources, and ILL librarians. She will describe ...

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 ...
