The Cuny-Shanghai Library Faculty Exchange Program: Participants Remember, Reflect, And Reshape, Sheau-Yueh J. Chao, Beth Evans, Ryan Phillips, Mark Aaron Polger, Beth Posner, Ellen Sexton

Publications and Research

This chapter recounts the outcomes and experiences of six American librarians who participated in an international librarian exchange program that ran from spring 2010 through fall 2011. The exchange brought together the City University of New York (CUNY) and two universities in Shanghai, China: Shanghai University (SU) and Shanghai Normal University (SNU). The program was inspired, in part, by recognition of the diversity of CUNY’s student body and growing awareness of the increasing globalization of information and education. For the Chinese librarians, the exchange offered an opportunity to learn from the West and showcase their own innovations. The traveling ...


Statistics-Bierce Library Study, Tyler J. Hushour 2017 University of Akron

Statistics-Bierce Library Study, Tyler J. Hushour

Honors Research Projects

This is a report from two surveys that I created and administered to students and faculty at Bierce library who came to the Circulation Desk or the Tech Desk, as well as some of my other findings when periodically looking around the library to see where students like to study or hang-out. There was a written survey given at the Circulation Desk, and a different survey given at the Tech Check-Out Desk. The project is for Melanie Smith-Farrell, the head of Access Services, and is based on a similar study Ian McCullough did in the science library. While this is ...


Regular Expressions In Practice, Kathryn Lybarger 2016 University of Kentucky

Regular Expressions In Practice, Kathryn Lybarger

Library Presentations

Regular expressions are not just for programmers anymore; they are supported by common software and systems used for cataloging and metadata, and allow for very powerful search and replace, even complete reformatting of library data! In this webinar, we’ll discuss the building blocks of regular expressions, practice identifying what they match (and do not match!), and consider how we can use them to make everyday library work more efficient.

Developing An Outreach Plan For Unt Scholarly Works, Pamela Andrews, Daniel Alemneh

Central Plains Network for Digital Asset Management

The University of North Texas Scholarly Works collections functions as our institution’s open access repository. This summer, we conducted a preliminary analysis of the collection’s holdings to assess our progress in archiving UNT faculty research in support of our Open Access and Long-term Digital Stewardship policy as passed in 2012. As we do not subscribe to any current research information systems (CRIS), this analysis took the form of a census using current faculty senate data to understand who is and is not contributing to the repository. After looking at our contribution population, we also examined what resource types ...


Beyond Electric Dreams: Instituting A Dam Program Where It Is Needed But Maybe Not Wanted, Gregory Johnson 2016 Knox College

Beyond Electric Dreams: Instituting A Dam Program Where It Is Needed But Maybe Not Wanted, Gregory Johnson

Central Plains Network for Digital Asset Management

Digital content is created every second of everyday and can be found everywhere. And the need to preserve this content, as well as the have it available to your students, patrons, or faculty and staff is at a premium while budgets for DAM dwindle. And while the need and want for DAM is often there, the drive and funds to make it a reality sometimes is not.

This presentation will cover one such DAM implementation project at a Fortune 500 company, beginning with the vetting and purchasing of a DAM system through implementation and show how the lessons from its ...

Digital Preservation Efforts At Usm, Elizabeth La Beaud

Central Plains Network for Digital Asset Management

The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) has steadily been working to improve its digital preservation infrastructure over the past four years. In 2013, with funding from a NEH Preservation Assistance Grant, consultants Tom Clareson and Liz Bishoff conducted a digital preservation readiness assessment and jump started USM’s education on the topic. Since then, USM has added geographically distributed backups, manual fixity checks, manual metadata logs, and manual file format migrations to its arsenal with varying degrees of success. The influx in needed manpower and technical infrastructure precipitated a financial commitment from the university and the purchase of a robust ...

Common Management Gaps In The Life Cycle Of Digitized Objects, Jocelyn Wehr 2016 University of Kansas

Common Management Gaps In The Life Cycle Of Digitized Objects, Jocelyn Wehr

Central Plains Network for Digital Asset Management

Presented from the perspective of someone responsible for creating the digital objects that will eventually be included in a digital preservation program, this poster session will identify common issues that make the management and preservation of digital objects more challenging. Digital preservation needs to be talked about within the digitization workflow, because it takes a lot of work to produce the best digital objects possible. We are often focused on the immediate use of the digital objects and less focused on their long-term use. Even with best practices in mind, there is often an immediate need (patron orders, for example ...


Numbers, Numbers, Numbers—Is It Working?! Meaningful Measurement Of Digital Collections, Allison Ringness 2016 Kansas State University

Numbers, Numbers, Numbers—Is It Working?! Meaningful Measurement Of Digital Collections, Allison Ringness

Central Plains Network for Digital Asset Management

After a digital project is completed and made available online, the work is not over: digital projects managers must quantify the value of these digital collections. There are a plethora of tools to measure usage, but inferring value from usage requires careful interpretation of the data. After interpretation, the results must be communicated effectively to administrators. This poster will identify sources of digital collection use data, identify pitfalls in these sources, explore ways to derive meaning from use data, and suggest strategies for communicating value measurements to library administrators.

This poster presentation is the first 15 minutes of video with ...


Collaborating Across Workflows: Managing Creative Assets From Legacy Works, Patrice-Andre Prud'homme, Jennifer Hunt Johnson 2016 Illinois State University

Collaborating Across Workflows: Managing Creative Assets From Legacy Works, Patrice-Andre Prud'homme, Jennifer Hunt Johnson

Central Plains Network for Digital Asset Management

From the perspective of two distinct workflows, this presentation will illustrate how library departments, Digital Collections and Conservation collaborate on the production of digital assets. In essence, both digitization and analog preservation workflows aim to guarantee that collections are easily retrieved and usable. This case study will illustrate two examples. The first one is more linear yet regional; it aims to create digital assets to engage the community by means of crowdsourced transcription. The second one is hands-on, as it addresses the long-term research value of the physical material for use in classrooms by Special Collections. While these workflows may ...
