Rethinking Special Collections Moves As Opportunities, Not Obstacles, Colleen Hoelscher, Sarah Burke Cahalan 2017 Trinity University

Rethinking Special Collections Moves As Opportunities, Not Obstacles, Colleen Hoelscher, Sarah Burke Cahalan

Marian Library/IMRI Faculty Publications

In the summer of 2017, the Marian Library—a special library devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary within the larger University of Dayton Libraries system—completed a move of its rare book and archival collections into a new space within the main library building. The space, previously leased to the Society of Mary provincial archives, was already outfitted with a Liebert system for temperature and humidity controls, as well as shelving and some furniture.

Prior to the move, the rare book collection and archival holdings were stored in less than ideal conditions. In 2014, a consultant from Lyrasis conducted a ...

Developing An Effective, Accessible And Sustainable Digital Repository Of Olt Learning And Teaching Resources: Final Report, Philip Hider, Pru Mitchell, Helen Galatis, Katie Mcdowell

Pru Mitchell

This project aimed to provide the Department with a roadmap for its Resource Library, an online repository containing resources emanating from the projects funded by the OLT and its predecessors. The roadmap is to address both technical and management considerations in order to ensure the repository’s sustainability and engagement with the higher education learning and teaching community in Australia and beyond. The project conducted a literature review and prepared a briefing paper for participants in a nationwide consultation exercise around the future of the Resource Library. Over 70 leaders and experts in university learning and teaching, and in scholarly ...

Ola Today: Oregon Librarians Respond To Changing Times, 2017 Pacific University

Ola Today: Oregon Librarians Respond To Changing Times

OLA Quarterly

This issue’s contributors and topics span academic and public institutions, rural and metropolitan libraries, political activism and personal narrative, and programming as well as abstraction. Considering instances of political action and librarianship, Oregon Library Association President Elsa Loftis begins this issue by profiling the organization. She cites its Legislative Agenda and its advocacy body, the Library Development and Legislation Committee, offering resources and steps toward political action that align with such guiding principles as Intellectual Freedom, Equitable Access, and Stewardship of Public Resources. Donna L. Cohen details a series of civic education workshops she has offered in recent months ...


Volume 23 Issue 1 Introduction, Lynne Stahl 2017 Multnomah County Library

Volume 23 Issue 1 Introduction, Lynne Stahl

OLA Quarterly

I feel honored and fortunate to have been asked to introduce this issue of the OLA Quarterly, and, having lived in Oregon for less than two years, not a little daunted in light of my relative newness to the state. Neither a longtime Oregonian nor even yet a fully credentialed librarian, I am hardly the fittest person imaginable to introduce a journal issue focused on Oregon librarians’ response to broad and dramatic changes. And yet, in the same way that one can benefit greatly from the distanced perspective of a different set of eyes looking over a draft of writing ...


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

School of Information 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 ...
