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 ...

Nebraska Intellectual Freedom Manual, Round Table On Intellectual Freedom, Nebraska Library Association, Michael Elsener, Sue Ann Gardner, K. Joan Birnie, Karen Drevo, Brenda Ealey, Timothy Lentz, Todd Schlechte

Zea E-Books

Much has changed in libraries and society since the publication of the 2004 revision of the Nebraska Library Association Intellectual Freedom Manual. The consensus of the current members of the Nebraska Library Association round table on Intellectual Freedom (NLA IF) was not to just revise the former manual, but to create an entirely new edition. In doing so, the authors have addressed a number of new issues. The intention was to keep it relatively brief but still useful. Readers should be able to read sections independent of one another for quick reference on topics of interest. For readers of the ...

Prospects And Strategies For Deep Collaboration In The Galleries, Libraries, Archives, And Museums Sector, Jill Deupi, Charles Eckman 2016 University of Miami

Prospects And Strategies For Deep Collaboration In The Galleries, Libraries, Archives, And Museums Sector, Jill Deupi, Charles Eckman

Charles D. Eckman

This paper reports on the findings of a working summit hosted by the University of Miami in January 2016 at which the administrative heads of art museums and libraries from fourteen academic institutions convened to explore the barriers to—and opportunities for—deeper intra-institutional museum-library collaborations. The summit was jointly funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and featured presentations by thought-leaders in the academic galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAM) sector. This paper presents a summary of the work, discussions, and outcomes of the summit including recommendations for further effort in the following ...


Separating The Wheat From The Chaff: Intensive Deselection To Enable Preservation And Access, Colleen Hoelscher, Jillian Ewalt 2016 University of Dayton

Separating The Wheat From The Chaff: Intensive Deselection To Enable Preservation And Access, Colleen Hoelscher, Jillian Ewalt

Marian Library/IMRI Faculty Presentations

In 2014, the Marian Library at the University of Dayton completed a long overdue revision of its collection development policy. The new document more clearly defined the scope of the library’s collections, and was intended to guide new acquisition decisions. However, this new document had the unexpected benefit of providing a framework for deselection projects that enabled preservation and improved access to the collections.

This paper will discuss and analyze two of these projects, and demonstrate how the revised collection development policy laid the foundation for successful deselection outcomes. In the first case study, legacy collections of genre-based ephemera ...

New Strategies For Aligning Libraries With Institutional Goals, Roger Weaver, Kathleen Spring, Maggie Trish 2016 Missouri University of Science and Technology

New Strategies For Aligning Libraries With Institutional Goals, Roger Weaver, Kathleen Spring, Maggie Trish

Roger Weaver

Aligning the library’s activities with larger institutional goals is key for library deans and directors. For many, integrating with larger campus priorities is a necessary step to strengthen the relevance of the library. Repository initiatives can play an important role here, at both large and small institutions. But how?

The libraries at Missouri University of Science and Technology and at Linfield College have provided support for many of the top-level strategic initiatives through innovative repository services, including student recruitment and retention, community engagement, and research and data support. In this presentation, Roger Weaver, Kathleen Spring, and Maggie Trish discuss ...

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.

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 ...
