Safeguarding For The Future: Managing Born-Digital Collections In Museums, Kimberly Kruse 2017 Seton Hall University

Safeguarding For The Future: Managing Born-Digital Collections In Museums, Kimberly Kruse

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

Over the past few decades, advancements in technology have changed society entirely. Every bit of information about world news, popular culture, and art is just a tap of a touchscreen away. So many aspects of the contemporary world have become digitized so that it was only a matter of time before museums would have to face the issue of born-digital media in their collections. From videos to web-based art, museums have to tackle how to save this new form of cultural heritage. Museums have to do so now before it gets lost forever. The challenge of born-digital objects lies in ...


Microbial Ecology Electronic Resources, Michael Bobb 2017 Iowa State University

Microbial Ecology Electronic Resources, Michael Bobb

Michael Bobb

Microbial ecology covers sub-disciplines of both microbiology and ecology. To put it briefly, it is the study of the roles and relationships that microorganisms (predominantly bacteria and fungi) have with the environment and other organisms within the environment. There is much overlap in the topic areas, and often research covers several different sub-disciplines simultaneously. Major topic areas within microbial ecology are ecology, microbiology, soil science, agriculture, bioremediation, environmental science, biogeography, biogeochemistry, oceanography, restoration ecology, and dentistry/biofilm biology. Researchers and research programs cover a broad spectrum of topics; for example, molecular researchers who are interested in the metabolic processes and ...

Librarians Doing Dh: A Team And Project-Based Approach To Digital Humanities In The Library, Lydia Bello, Madelynn Dickerson, Margaret Hogarth, Ashley Sanders 2017 Claremont Colleges Library

Librarians Doing Dh: A Team And Project-Based Approach To Digital Humanities In The Library, Lydia Bello, Madelynn Dickerson, Margaret Hogarth, Ashley Sanders

Collaborative Librarianship

The Claremont Colleges Library embarked on a “learn by doing” Digital Humanities (DH) program and series of team-based projects in order to provide librarians experience working directly with DH methodologies and tools. Drawing from two divisions in the Library, a team of librarians designed an analysis project using DH tools to examine collection development trends on the topic of terrorism. In the process, the team addressed technical obstacles, communication issues and time management techniques that contributed to a productive collaboration. DH can be a catalyst for librarians’ own research beyond serving in a supportive role for the disciplines. With its ...

Classification Methods In Context At Theological Libraries: A Case Study, Chloe G. Noland 2017 San Jose State University

Classification Methods In Context At Theological Libraries: A Case Study, Chloe G. Noland

SLIS Student Research Journal

This case study explores issues of interoperability and shared collection management between two libraries – one community and one academic – located within the American Jewish University (AJU). AJU’s choice to use two separate classification systems, Library of Congress and Elazar, respectively, provides a necessary separation of academic and religious context, but limits record access between the two collections. Specifically, this study aims to answer the following core research question: is consolidation into one classification scheme both a realistic and helpful solution for increased interoperability? Examining the history, patron needs, and principles of arrangement in both systems provided further insights regarding ...

Baby Snake Swallows Whale: Impacts And Insights From Winthrop’S Recent Ils Migration, Antje Mays 2017 Winthrop University

Baby Snake Swallows Whale: Impacts And Insights From Winthrop’S Recent Ils Migration, Antje Mays

Antje Mays

After over three decades with the same integrated library system (ILS), Winthrop University went live with a next-gen cloud-based system in July 2015. This article describes the last period with the old system, migration phases and training with the new system, and observations following the go-live.

Before signing on in spring 2014, information was gathered on the new system, followed by examination of data structures, translation tables,and preparations for data structures which did not directly translate from the old system to the new. The new vendor's onboarding grouped several libraries at the same migration phase in a formal ...

Demand for streaming video for use in classrooms is growing at East Carolina University.  To meet this demand the library offers a variety of options, from Demand Driven Acquisitions to access to vendor curated collections. Each purchase method requires expertise to successfully navigate acquisitions, licensing, and access issues. Once collections are established, evaluating current models and the use of streaming media is important to ensure collections meet patron needs. This talk will delve into acquisitions methods, licensing, cross training, assessment, and collection development considerations for growing and maintaining streaming video collections

Flattening Funds: Using Alma Fund Structure & Reporting Codes, Kate Seago 2017 University of Kentucky

Flattening Funds: Using Alma Fund Structure & Reporting Codes, Kate Seago

Kate Seago

The University of Kentucky had been on Voyager since 2001. We had built a complex fund structure using reporting funds to map funds accurately over to the University’s SAP system and provide break downs by subject and format. In addition, the Acquisitions Department Head had been relying on an access report and a code in the invoice note field to provide accurate ARL statistics. When the Libraries migrated to Alma in January 2016, it quickly became apparent that the fund structure would need substantial reworking to be functional in Alma. Starting in July 2017, a new fund structure was ...

Just Like Starting Over: Using Alma And Primo To Create A Successful Course Reserves Service, Molly Gunderson 2017 Portland State University

Just Like Starting Over: Using Alma And Primo To Create A Successful Course Reserves Service, Molly Gunderson

Library Faculty Publications and Presentations

The Portland State University Library has a heavily-used course reserve service, for both print and electronic materials. When we migrated to ExLibris in 2014, we decided to move from Docutek ERes to Alma. We took the opportunity to rethink our course reserve service and changed everything from loan periods to work flows. We also harnessed Primo to make our course reserve materials more discoverable and incorporated course reserves materials in the course shells of our learning management system, Desire2Learn (D2L).

In this presentation I will offer best practices and discuss the challenges we faced in moving to a new platform ...

Counting, Then Re-Counting: National Statistical Reporting From Within Alma And From Alma Analytics, Julene L. Jones

Library Presentations

National statistics are collected and reported by libraries for a variety of reasons. The presenter was recently asked to report statistics about her library's collections for ARL, AAHSL, ABET, CEAL and IPEDS, each of whom ask a variety of questions about disparate data points. Her institution recently migrated from Voyager to Alma, and she found that the data is not comparable between the prior and subsequent years to this migration. The differing statistical collection methods between Voyager and Alma / Analytics will be discussed, and if time allows, the presenter would appreciate any tips for collecting collection-based data and its ...
