Applying The Principles Of Total Library Assessment To Inform Sustainable Collection Development (Pending), Michael Luther, Ana Guimaraes 2016 Kennesaw State University

Applying The Principles Of Total Library Assessment To Inform Sustainable Collection Development (Pending), Michael Luther, Ana Guimaraes

Ana Guimaraes

In 2015, the Kennesaw State University Library System (KSULS) began a pilot project to assess the physical collections of the organization. The collection assessment project coordinators, consisting of the Assessment Librarian and the Collection Development Librarian, set a goal to assess four subject areas over a one-year time frame. For the project to be successful, two things were clear from the outset: 1) no one-size-fits-all solution would be sufficient to capture the diverse data necessary to adequately inform collection development, and 2) the work of making sense of the gathered information would best be performed by the Undergraduate Faculty Liaisons ...


An Olympic Ode To Cataloging, Maureen E. Schlangen 2016 University of Dayton

An Olympic Ode To Cataloging, Maureen E. Schlangen

Maureen E. Schlangen

When my colleagues in the University Libraries gathered on the west portico of Roesch Library June 9 for our own version of the Olympics, our competitive nature, mostly dormant in our daily work, emerged in events that put our teams to the test both physically and mentally: journal Jenga, journal toss, cart racing, book balancing, speed sorting and the hardest scavenger hunt I’ve ever participated in.

But like many things I’ve discovered in my two years in the Libraries, the information science that inspired these trivial games is anything but trivial.

As I raced to put a cart ...

Accessibility Services Roundtable Unconference Proceedings 2016, Lacuny Accessibility Services Roundtable, Robin Brown

Events

A group of 16, mostly librarians, met in the Archives Reading Room of City College Library on Friday, June 17, 2016. The format of our meeting was an unconference, which means the conversations were driven by the concerns of the participants. I have no doubt that anyone who reads this document will come away with different impressions. The ideas that jumped out at me include learning a lot more about universal design for learning. Be aware that phones can be used in the classroom as assistive technology. Consider doing a usability study of library resources in concert with students with ...

Access Services In The New Century (Full Issue)

OLA Quarterly

The spring issue of OLA Quarterly focuses on access services in the new century. How are core activities like circulation, interlibrary loan, space and stacks management changing? Staying the same? How can we better meet our patron’s needs, especially as our communities change around us? How can we ensure we are meeting the needs of all community members, especially those who are traditionally underserved? What have been our major success and victories in this new century?

Volume 22 Issue 1 Introduction, Turner Masland

OLA Quarterly

Libraries are continuing to change at a rapid pace, transforming from quiet repositories into vibrant locations for knowledge and information gathering and exchange. Books are being moved to storage facilities to make room for more collaborative learning spaces. Technology demands are rising. Makerspaces are becoming essential library services. While these changes are both scary and exciting, they are also necessary for libraries to remain true to their core mission: serving our communities and their information needs while respecting their rights to privacy and intellectual freedom. While everything in our industry feels like it is changing rapidly, it also remains the ...


A Love Letter To Access Services, Angela Weyrens 2016 Multnomah County Library

A Love Letter To Access Services, Angela Weyrens

OLA Quarterly

Access Services, I do love you, ever so. You are my best and most favorite work relationship (although since we’re being honest, certainly not my first). I believe in you: your purpose, presence, and importance, your sheer scale and volume. You embody the basic, very important parts of the engine that keeps the library moving forward. Check in, check out, shelve, retrieve, make accessible that which is disordered, create a card, manage a troubled account, say hello to new members of the community, and wish them well when they leave. You do so many things expertly, efficiently, and with ...


Architecture And Access: Navigating A New Space, Linden How, Sara Bystrom 2016 Pacific Northwest College of Art

Architecture And Access: Navigating A New Space, Linden How, Sara Bystrom

OLA Quarterly

Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) is a small, private art and design college founded in 1909. PNCA is located in downtown Portland and hosts approximately 600 students in ten undergraduate programs and five graduate programs. In January 2015, the campus was moved from our old building — a converted warehouse — to the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Center for Art and Design, a former federal building located on Portland’s North Park Blocks in the heart of the city.

This move almost doubled the square footage of the library, affording us more space for our collection, three new study rooms, a ...


Library Services And Spaces: Addressing The Needs Of A Changing Campus, Stephanie Kerns 2016 Oregon Health & Science University

Library Services And Spaces: Addressing The Needs Of A Changing Campus, Stephanie Kerns

OLA Quarterly

The OHSU Library has undergone many changes in the last two years to serve its users better. With the opening of the Collaborative Life Sciences Building (CLSB), a joint venture between OHSU, PSU and OSU, there was an opportunity to design a library space from the ground up. With changes in the MD curriculum and changes in library operations, there was a chance to redesign existing library space in the Biomedical Information Communication Center (BICC) to better fit the current and future needs of the OHSU community.


Access To Public Library Services For Spanish-Speakers, Angelica Novoa De Cordeiro 2016 Emporia State University

Access To Public Library Services For Spanish-Speakers, Angelica Novoa De Cordeiro

OLA Quarterly

This article analyzes best practices on access for Spanish-speakers through personal practices, providing library services to the target population, exploration of a library system, and researching work done by other professionals in the library field. Based on resources that guide librarians in the areas of facilities, collection development, programs and services for the community, as well as other critical concerns such as knowing and understanding the community, outreach, and advocacy, I reaffirm that twenty-first century best practices include a collaborative effort. This article proposes working with a plan that includes partnerships and committees which would focus on services for the ...

Archivesspace At The University Of Kentucky, Ruth E. Bryan

Ruth E. Bryan

University of Kentucky Special Collections Research Center implemented Archivists’ Toolkit in 2009-2010 and ArchivesSpace in 2015. We continue to explore and develop procedures, policies, and uses of AS. Based primarily in University Archives accessioning and description needs, this presentation outlines some new ArchivesSpace functions we have implemented or plan to implement within the next year; previous functions available in AT, but not yet (fully) implemented in AS that we have developed short-term workarounds for; AS functions we have explored and decided not to use; and workflows developed with AT functionality that don’t work completely with AS and that may ...


Journal Usage At Department And Research Group Level (Postprint), Ian McCullough 2016 University of Akron Main Campus

Journal Usage At Department And Research Group Level (Postprint), Ian Mccullough

Research

Journal usage in the Department of Polymer Science at the University of Akron from 2006-2011 was determined by counting citations within faculty-supervised dissertations and faculty publications. Ranked title lists were created and correlations between journal usage in faculty publications and faculty-supervised dissertations were measured using Kendall’s rank-correlation coefficient. Dissertations and faculty publications were also organized by research group and correlated within groups. Dissertations and faculty publications were found to have a much stronger positive correlation within the group than within the department. Individual groups were found to have highly variable correlation with each other. Examining journal usage at group ...

Volume 21 Issue 4 Introduction, Joan Petit

Joan Petit

Oregon libraries provide an incredible array of resources and services, but sometimes we struggle to educate our users and each other about all that is available. Over the past several years, many libraries have become more intentional in our efforts to market and promote our offerings, through traditional PR and advertisements as well as newer approaches like social media. However, we may lack the formal training and expertise to do this well—marketing is not a class offered in all library school programs—and, even with appropriate training, we may lack the budget and staff to implement a large-scale marketing ...
