Supporting Access And Community-Building: The Cala Social Media Tag Library, Sai Deng, Esther Deleon, Jeannie Chen

Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

The Chinese American Librarians Association (CALA) Social Media Group initially created the CALA Social Media Tag Library in Fall 2017 to facilitate better navigation and search for social media channels, particularly the CALA Facebook public page and promote the organization’s programs and activities. The Social Media Group introduced the creation of the Tag Library to the CALA community in Summer 2018, but the tags were limited to member-only, internal use. In Spring 2019, the restructured CALA Social Media Committee reviewed, enriched, and standardized the Tag Library, and decided to make it publicly available for anyone interested in posting to ...

Describing Historical Images: Improving Access To Digital Collections With Local Subjects, Jessica Serrao, Janice Prater, Scott Dutkiewicz, Charlotte Grubbs

Presentations

Libraries are at the forefront of creating rich quality metadata to ensure communities can access, learn, and understand their shared histories. The Metadata and Monographic Resources Team (MMRT) is tasked with describing and providing access points to Clemson Libraries’ Digital Collections. Metadata decisions made by MMRT affect how community members discover, access, and use these materials. Photographic images, in particular, pose challenges if they lack descriptive information or historical context. If descriptions are provided, they often align with the historically white male majority, naming high level individuals and leaving out minority and marginalized peoples.

This poster covers challenges and decisions ...

The Accidental Middle East Librarians, Shahrzad Khosrowpour, Essraa Nawar

Library Presentations, Posters, and Videos

One of the most essential factors in acquiring a subject-focused collection for an academic institution is the close collaboration of the subject liaison librarian and the faculty. Not to mention that when the collection is in a Middle East language, it may have some restriction in access/locating materials desirable for that collection. It also involves challenges such as having the knowledge of the language, locating vendors/publishers, and communicating with them to easily find the materials in Western countries and/or outside resources on time. To create an effective collection that supports the curriculum, librarians may need to provide ...

Discovering Digital Archives: A Successful Collaboration Between Archivists And Technical Services Librarians, Christina A. Beis, Kayla Harris, Stephanie Shreffler 2019 University of Dayton

Discovering Digital Archives: A Successful Collaboration Between Archivists And Technical Services Librarians, Christina A. Beis, Kayla Harris, Stephanie Shreffler

Kayla Harris

Effective collaboration between archives and technical services increases the discoverability of special collection materials. Archivists at a medium-sized institution had been using Archive-It to collect websites for a few years, but the information was isolated in a separate platform and wasn't effectively marketed to users. Working together, the team of archivists and technical services librarians incorporated the website collections into the discovery layer. Metadata was added at the seed level and indexed on a single, user-friendly platform. Attendees learned about implementing digital archive collections and explored how to increase their visibility through marketing.

Virtual Reality Record Metadata, Michele Gibney 2019 Selected Works

Virtual Reality Record Metadata, Michele Gibney

Michele Gibney

In 2018, the University of the Pacific Libraries worked with a faculty member in the School of Engineering and Computer Science to upload a class project involving multi-file records to the institutional repository. One of the file types was an .EXE executable Virtual Reality (VR) application. This was a first at the institution and in my experience with institutional repositories; I was stymied on how to describe and provide metadata for the VR piece – to both human and machine audiences. Attempting to read up on best practices and query the community didn’t result in much concrete assistance and we ...

Institutional Repository Workflow, Project Management, And Outreach In A Remote/Online Library Environment, Daina Dickman

Daina Dickman, MA, MLIS, AHIP

In 2018 Providence St. Joseph Health launched an institutional repository, primarily staffed by a librarian located in Oregon and a library assistant located in Montana with occasional help from other Library Services staff. Workflow and communication standards had to be created that would allow library staff in multiple locations and time zones to seamlessly launch, populate, and manage the institutional repository. Outreach, instruction, and promotion tactics had to also be created to reach researchers and clinical staff across six states and 100+ locations.

Integrating Your Repository In To Oclc Using The Digital Collections Gateway, DeAnn Brame 2019 Winthrop University

Integrating Your Repository In To Oclc Using The Digital Collections Gateway, Deann Brame

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group (DC SEUG) 2019

Winthrop University has an extensive archives and special collections that has never been cataloged. Digital Commons @ Winthrop officially launched in January 2016 and our archives staff worked diligently to add items to our repository. The question then became how can we integrate this work in to our ILS system. Seeing a need for action but without the time or manpower to individually catalog these collections we turned to the Digital Collection Gateway. In this presentation we will discuss the process we took and are still taking in order to incorporate our Digital Commons content in to our ILS. Topics will ...

Today Crossref, Tomorrow The World: Managing Xml Crosswalks With Altova Mapforce, Jeffrey M. Mortimore

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group (DC SEUG) 2019

Altova MapForce is an intuitive graphical mapping tool for manipulating and converting any structured data, including OAI-PMH XML, into any scheme without specialized knowledge of XML or XSLT. With Altova MapForce, repository managers who lack dedicated XML programming or development support can streamline creation of XML stylesheets and simplify XML conversions. During this session, we will look specifically at crosswalking bepress journal metadata to Crossref Deposit and DOAJ Native XML.


Words And Worldviews: Decolonizing Description, F. Tim Knight 2019 Osgoode Hall Law School of York University

Words And Worldviews: Decolonizing Description, F. Tim Knight

Librarian Publications & Presentations

Recommendation #5 in the CFLA-FCAB Truth & Reconciliation Report advises that libraries address the “structural biases in existing schemes of knowledge organization and information retrieval arising from colonialism.” It suggests that one way to do this is by “integrating Indigenous epistemologies into cataloguing praxis and knowledge management.” This requires conversations and collaborations, learning and unlearning. In this panel, F. Tim Knight and Sharon Farnel will discuss their paths toward understanding the inherent differences that exist between Western and indigenous approaches to knowledge, and explore what decolonization means in the context of library resource description.
