The Library Has Infinite Streaming Content, But Are Users Infinitely Content? The Library Catalog Vs. Vendor Platform Discovery, Jian Wang, Elsa Loftis 2020 Portland State University

The Library Has Infinite Streaming Content, But Are Users Infinitely Content? The Library Catalog Vs. Vendor Platform Discovery, Jian Wang, Elsa Loftis

Library Faculty Publications and Presentations

Despite the widespread adoption of streaming video by academic libraries, there has been little discussion about how video content is discovered and accessed through the library catalog as compared to vendor platforms. This article explores the current status of video resources in the library catalog to better understand how users find and access streaming content. MARC records were evaluated, and searches were performed to gauge issues related to metadata quality and its impact on discovery. The study reveals new trends in how users access streaming content for teaching, learning, and research.

Library Support For Course Materials, Sara Duff, Rich Gause, Sarah A. Norris

Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

Whether you’re teaching online or face-to-face, UCF Libraries provide access to a variety of materials that can support your courses — from journal articles, streaming videos, e-books, and more. But, these materials have a wide variety of access models that are not always evident. In this session, UCF Librarians Sara Duff, Rich Gause, and Sarah Norris will share how to navigate the plethora of resources available to support teaching and learning with a particular emphasis on resources that can be used during remote teaching during emergency circumstances. How to access these materials and ensure they’re accessible by students, as ...

Electronic Library Collections And Users With Visual Impairments: Challenges, Developments, And The State Of Collections Policies In Academic And Public Libraries, Anthony M. DiGiovanni 2020 Historical Society of Pennsylvania

Electronic Library Collections And Users With Visual Impairments: Challenges, Developments, And The State Of Collections Policies In Academic And Public Libraries, Anthony M. Digiovanni

School of Information Student Research Journal

Academic and public library collections are developed based on the needs of the communities that surround them. Technology has increased the way users access information, and the way libraries offer information to their users. However, the accessibility of electronic resources for users with print disabilities remains an issue that has yet to have an equitable remedy. This paper identifies the challenges of visually impaired users, the developments in law, the current state of accessibility in academic and public library collections policies, and the current formats and products that are leading the way.


Collection Development Challenges In Slavic & East European Libraries: A Literature Review, Sebastian C. Galbo 2020 SUNY University at Buffalo

Collection Development Challenges In Slavic & East European Libraries: A Literature Review, Sebastian C. Galbo

School of Information Student Research Journal

The purpose of this paper (a literature review) is threefold. First, it seeks to understand the current landscape of collection development practices within the contexts of academic Slavic and Eastern Europe (SEE) collections. Second, this paper aims to grasp the challenges that impact how librarians devise collection development policies for academic SEE holdings. Third, by drawing on current field research, it investigates how SEE collections are addressing these challenges and sustaining user services. It asks, for example, what tools/resources SEE collections employ to remain vital, relevant, and accessible. Based on these three foci, this paper provides an assessment of ...

Flipping The Model: A Values-Based Consortial Approach To Journal Negotiations, Genya O'Gara, Cheryl Duncan, Edward F. Lener, Beth Blanton-Kent, Anne Osterman, Summer Durrant, Alison Armstrong, Georgie Donovan, Tamara Remhof 2020 VIVA, George Mason University

Flipping The Model: A Values-Based Consortial Approach To Journal Negotiations, Genya O'Gara, Cheryl Duncan, Edward F. Lener, Beth Blanton-Kent, Anne Osterman, Summer Durrant, Alison Armstrong, Georgie Donovan, Tamara Remhof

Charleston Library Conference

When negotiating journal pricing, the disadvantages libraries face are well documented. In addition to financially incompatible acquisition models that are out of sync with both library budgets and any predicted growth, libraries are also presented with rising inflationary costs, content added to an already overloaded system, and vendor consolidation.

Pricing issues are further exacerbated by traditional negotiations, where libraries begin negotiations based on the offers made by publishers and vendors. These offers too often are predicated on historical spend and coupled with list prices that come with few explanations for their sums. Big package deals, that arguably expand access to ...


Open, Just, & Sustainable Project: April 2020 Report, Paige Mann 2020 University of Redlands

Open, Just, & Sustainable Project: April 2020 Report, Paige Mann

Working Papers & Reports

In an increasingly digital and open-access world, libraries and other scholar communities must reconsider what we mean by the term “value”. The open access (OA) movement and sites such as SciHub and Research Gate have increasingly uncoupled access to scholarship from wealth and academic connections, disrupting the traditional value propositions of publishers and libraries alike. In response, dominant publishers (e.g., Elsevier, Wiley) and publisher-adjacent corporations (e.g., Clarivate, Digital Science) are extracting behavioral data and further entrenching themselves in institutional rankings, hiring and funding decisions, and teaching and learning practices. In turn, libraries must reexamine how their relationships with ...

Archon To Aspace: Adventures In Archives Migration, Adam Stephen Guy Smith, Heidi J. Southworth, Tom Tran, Daniel Vang

Library Services Faculty and Staff Publications

In August 2018, the University Archives and Southern Minnesota Historical Center at Minnesota State University, Mankato decided to migrate our finding aids and collection information from a hidden ARCHON database to a publicly available ArchivesSpace instance. This time sensitive decision was made with no budget available and in the midst of both a library system migration (Aleph to Alma/Primo) and an entire University website migration that affected us more than we initially thought. Three migrations is no big deal, right? This session will talk about our migration from design to implementation to “Oops! Where did that go?” We will ...

Automating the production of data visualizations in Jupyter Notebook from standardized data inputs enables us to produce more reports for more academic departments, which increases our impact.


Hosting Inspec On Engineering Village Or Web Science: A Case Study In Comparing Database Platforms, Jay McAllister III, Nancy Diaz 2020 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Hosting Inspec On Engineering Village Or Web Science: A Case Study In Comparing Database Platforms, Jay Mcallister Iii, Nancy Diaz

University Libraries Faculty Publications and Presentations

Purpose – As library budgets continue to constrict, librarians will need to become more familiar with comparing database host platforms. This paper aims to compare Inspec on Elsevier’s Engineering Village (EV) and Clarivate’s Web of Science (WOS) from a novice user experience. The main objectives are to identify some R1 institutions that subscribe to Inspec and highlight some of the key differences between the two platforms. Design/methodology/approach – Information on Inspec was gathered from various sources as well as the home website, IET, and the host platform websites of Elsevier and Clarivate Analytics. Data was also collected from ...

Herding Cats & Getting To Yes: Lessons Learned From University Of California Libraries’ New Cost Share Model Implementation, Mihoko Hosoi 2020 The Pennsylvania State University

Herding Cats & Getting To Yes: Lessons Learned From University Of California Libraries’ New Cost Share Model Implementation, Mihoko Hosoi

Collaborative Librarianship

Systemwide or multi-campus licenses provide many benefits such as favorable pricing, access to an expanded array of resources for all participants, and streamlined licensing. They also usually involve cost sharing among participating campuses. The licensing process can be labor-intensive and time-consuming. Successful collaboration among participants is essential in reaching consensus. In the past, the University of California (UC) libraries employed many cost models, and the California Digital Library (CDL) applied them for CDL-licensed subscriptions, both new licenses and renewals. After several years of discussion, the UC Libraries decided to implement an FTE-based model as the default cost share model, except ...
