Librarians Doing Dh: A Team And Project-Based Approach To Digital Humanities In The Library, 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
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, 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 ...

The Protection Of Indigenous Intellectual Property Rights, 2017 Western University
The Protection Of Indigenous Intellectual Property Rights, Melissa Seelye
Librarians and archivists have played prominent roles in initiatives aimed at preserving indigenous cultural heritage in recent decades. Such initiatives have evolved in response to the relative lack of legal protections for indigenous cultural heritage of an intangible nature, especially compared to title laws intended to regulate the use of indigenous lands, burial sites, and plants. Even non-legally binding resolutions that take a holistic approach to indigenous property have proven contentious, with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) having only been ratified in 2007, despite being drafted in 1993. Grounded in a critical understanding of ...

A Collaborative Approach To Developing Culturally Themed Digital Collections, Antoinette Paris Greider, Adrian K. Ho, Christopher A. Pool
The College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Kentucky (UK) has created the Passport to the World Program (PWP) to celebrate campus-wide the cultural heritage of a country or region every academic year. The UK Libraries International Programs has been an active contributor to PWP by collaborating with faculty and different library departments to develop unique digital collections that serve to connect viewers with the featured country or region.
To begin with, the Director of the International Programs (DIP) consults faculty and librarians at the UK Libraries Special Collections Research Center to select relevant materials for digitization. She ...
To (Re)Frame It, Name It: Refining Spending Codes To Reveal New Collection Trends, 2017 Yale University
To (Re)Frame It, Name It: Refining Spending Codes To Reveal New Collection Trends, Julie Linden, Sarah Tudesco
ACRL New England Chapter Annual Conference
For college and research libraries, a major 21st century transformation has been the spending shift from print materials to electronic resources. This shift has triggered ongoing conversations about resource allocation at many institutions. Common assumptions that are drawn from these general trends:
• Spending on the sciences has increased at the expense of the humanities
• Spending on serials has increased at the expense of monographs
Overly simple expenditure codes that merely distinguish print from electronic do not allow these assumptions to be tested. This poster will demonstrate how a 2013 revision of expenditure codes used in the library’s acquisitions system ...

Creating A Social Justice Mindset: Incorporating Diversity, Inclusion, And Social Justice Into All Aspects Of Collections Work At Mit Libraries, Rhonda Kauffman, Michelle Miller
ACRL New England Chapter Annual Conference
Academic librarians are increasingly embracing diversity, inclusion, and social justice as values essential to our profession. The MIT Libraries has made a commitment to promoting the values of diversity, inclusion and social justice throughout the entire organization, and has sponsored a task force of the Collections Directorate to identify opportunities for archives, cataloging, acquisitions, preservation, and collections strategy staff to promote diversity, inclusion, and social justice in all aspects of library collections work. Over the course of eight months, the task force explored the topic philosophically and pragmatically. In our final report, we emphasized issues of economic justice, systems of ...

Just Like Starting Over: Using Alma And Primo To Create A Successful Course Reserves Service, 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 ...
Flattening Funds: Using Alma Fund Structure & Reporting Codes, 2017 University of Kentucky
Flattening Funds: Using Alma Fund Structure & Reporting Codes, 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 ...
Counting, Then Re-Counting: National Statistical Reporting From Within Alma And From Alma Analytics, 2017 University of Kentucky
Counting, Then Re-Counting: National Statistical Reporting From Within Alma And From Alma Analytics, Julene L. Jones
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 ...
Impacting Rural Hispanic Communities By Reaching Out, Connecting And Providing Services At Different Levels, 2017 Hood River County Library District
Impacting Rural Hispanic Communities By Reaching Out, Connecting And Providing Services At Different Levels, Patty Lara
In my role as an outreach specialist, I have created community events, partnered with various organizations, and participated in nontraditional programs in order to attract the vast Hispanic populations in the area to the various Hood River County libraries.
Hood River County is a rural community, and an estimated 31 percent of the population is Hispanic. The great thing about this community is that it has invested its efforts in honoring and accepting the Hispanic culture and bringing the community together as a whole. There is a little town named Odell, about eight miles south of Hood River, where I ...
Collection Diversity Has No Borders: A Librarian’S Experience At Fil, Cilelij And Filij, 2017 Multnomah County Library
Collection Diversity Has No Borders: A Librarian’S Experience At Fil, Cilelij And Filij, Patricia Morán
Many public libraries in communities where Spanish is a language preferred by a significant percentage of the population have dedicated Spanish language collections and bilingual/ bicultural staff that provides library services and programs. In Oregon, the Latino population is growing faster than the national average, and nearly half of Oregon Latinos are bilingual (Oregon Community Foundation, 2016). In alignment with best practices, and upholding the core values of our profession, libraries dedicate funds and shelving space to Spanish language materials to serve the informational, educational, and recreational needs of Spanish-speaking communities. Libraries that are dedicated to developing and maintaining rich ...

Volume 22 Issue 4 Introduction, Martin Blasco
During the 2014 OLA Annual Conference in Salem, a group of librarians met informally for lunch to discuss the idea of creating a chapter of REFORMA (The National Association to Promote Library and Information to Latinos and Spanish Speaking) in Oregon.
In our second meeting at the end of 2014 in the Gresham branch of the Multnomah County Library (MCL), we formalized the creation of the REFORMA Oregon Chapter. By mid-2015, we became a Round Table in OLA. During this short period of time, we have increased in numbers, organized well-attended presentations during OLA conferences, held Mock Pura Belpré Awards ...
Change Is The Only Constant: Serving The Latinx Community With Help From Reforma Oregon, 2017 Columbia Gorge Community College
Change Is The Only Constant: Serving The Latinx Community With Help From Reforma Oregon, Gabriela Martínez Mercier
Part of the reason “change is the only constant” is cliché is because it holds true in many different contexts. Libraries are not what they were one hundred years ago. One could argue they are not even what they were fifty years ago. Societies evolve, populations fluctuate, and norms shift. As librarians, we are called to meet the needs of our patrons, though who or what falls under the umbrella term of “patrons” often depends on the library’s mission statement.
For the last few decades, the Latinx community has been seen as flourishing. Even with the recent decline in ...
