The Evolution Of E-Books And Interlibrary Loan In Academic Libraries, Heather Wicht 2011 University of Colorado at Boulder

The Evolution Of E-Books And Interlibrary Loan In Academic Libraries, Heather Wicht

Collaborative Librarianship

As academic libraries add electronic monographs (e-books) to their collections in increasing numbers, they are frequently losing the ability to lend this portion of their collections via Interlibrary Loan (ILL) due to licensing restrictions. Recently, new options have emerged as alternatives to traditional ILL for ebooks. These options introduce new opportunities for collaboration across library departments and within consortia. This article discusses the changing nature of resource sharing as related to e-books, examines e-book lending capabilities as they currently exist, and presents alternative models to traditional ILL, including short-term lending, purchase on demand and print on demand.

Terrorism: A Guide To Resources, Karen Okamoto, Marta Bladek 2011 CUNY John Jay College

Terrorism: A Guide To Resources, Karen Okamoto, Marta Bladek

Publications and Research

Prior to 9/11, terrorism was subject to political, scholarly, and media debates. A large body of literature on the topic reflected researchers’ long-standing interest in the topic. In the near decade since 9/11, terrorism and its threat have only gained urgency. This paper aims to provide a selected bibliography of resources, in print and electronic format, that focus on terrorism. Public and academic libraries have been providing access to terrorism-related resources, but no thematic bibliography has been published in professional journals since 2001. This guide aims to aid librarians in making decisions about developing and maintaining collections on ...

Faculty Research Publications (All Departments)

Librarians from four university library environments— Western Oregon University, University of California Merced, Brigham Young University, and Cleveland State University—discussed changes occurring in their library operations as they transition to services centered in e‐resources. They explored, through the evidence of their changing library operations, a range of topics including trends in collection development and usage; developments in open access publishing; instruction; and evolving peer review and publication processes. The moderator initiated the discussion with a review of a few of the year’s relevant technology changes. Overall the cadence of change is brisk and has become the familiar ...

Publication Delay In Iranian Scholarly Journals, Mahmood Khosrowjerdi, Neda Zeraatkar, Narjes Vara

Mahmood Khosrowjerdi

Scholarly periodicals in Iran are considered main information resources in the development of knowledge in scholarly areas. About 566 periodicals have publication licenses from the Commission of Scholarly Periodicals Evaluation of Ministry of Science, Research & Technology (MSRT), with sixty-eight published in English. This paper studies the publication delay of twenty-six Iranian scholarly periodicals which are published in Persian in Iran, not those Iranian journals which are published in English in Iran or out of the country. The peer review and scholarly publication processes in Iranian journals are quite lengthy and need improvement. There was no significant relationship between publication delay ...


Facilitating Greater Access To Etds Through Contentdm, Rachel Howard, Tyler Goldberg 2010 University of Louisville

Facilitating Greater Access To Etds Through Contentdm, Rachel Howard, Tyler Goldberg

Rachel I. Howard

Bound theses and dissertations (BTDs) have increasingly been supplemented or replaced by electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs). Since 2002, the University of Louisville Libraries have been building a collection of born-digital and digitized ETDs in order to provide free worldwide access to these titles, and to enable graduate
students to include digital media in their works. In 2009 the Libraries migrated the ETD collection from a homegrown database to CONTENTdm, in order to allow for full-text searching and simultaneous searching of other electronic collections. This article will discuss the cataloging workflows for the different phases of the project, including the ...

Will ease of access and portability facilitate cheating and plagiarism? How will eBooks and eReaders work in an urban academic environment? Are eReaders and eBooks the new digital divide?

Faculty from the Leonard Lief Library at Lehman College will share their experience with Sony eReaders and downloadable eBooks via OverDrive. Following this presentation there will be a guided discussion on eReader and eBook issues, such as ...
