Beyond ‘‘Green Buildings:’’ Exploring The Effects Of Jevons’ Paradox On The Sustainability Of Archival Practices, Mark D. Wolfe 2011 University at Albany

Beyond ‘‘Green Buildings:’’ Exploring The Effects Of Jevons’ Paradox On The Sustainability Of Archival Practices, Mark D. Wolfe

University Libraries Faculty Scholarship

The sustainability of archival institutions will be greatly affected by attempts to mitigate their carbon footprint to meet the challenges of global climate change. This paper explores how recordkeeping practices may enhance or undermine the sustainability of archives. To enhance sustainability, it is a common practice to increase the efficiency of recordkeeping practices. However, increases to efficiency may lead to a phenomenon known as Jevons’ Paradox. Jevons’ Paradox occurs when improvements in efficiency to a system or process result in an increase in use (instead of a decrease) of a resource. The failure of the paperless office demonstrates Jevons’ Paradox ...


Creating Collections Through Collaboration: An Innovative Digital Library Project In Monteverde, Costa Rica, Laurie Kutner, Cindy Dykes, Stefanie Havelka 2011 University of Vermont

Creating Collections Through Collaboration: An Innovative Digital Library Project In Monteverde, Costa Rica, Laurie Kutner, Cindy Dykes, Stefanie Havelka

Publications and Research

The proposed presentation will focus on a successful cross-cultural and cross-institutional collaborative model, involving four institutions, that was developed to create digital library collections of research-based information generated in the Monteverde Zone in Costa Rica. Addressing a need for the Monteverde community to have easy access to locally-produced research-based information, the digital collections contain unpublished research documents produced by area international study programs focusing on local sustainable community development, community health, and tropical ecology.

Each summer, since 2008, LIS graduate student interns from Syracuse University have spent 5-6 weeks on site at the Monteverde Institute in Costa Rica, working to ...


Managing E-Book Acquisition: The Coordination Of "P" And "E" Publication Dates, Sarah Forzetting, Gabrielle Wiersma 2011 Ingram-Coutts

Managing E-Book Acquisition: The Coordination Of "P" And "E" Publication Dates, Sarah Forzetting, Gabrielle Wiersma

University Libraries Faculty & Staff Contributions

For many libraries e-books are now the preferred format in a wide variety of subject areas. In some cases, it is still a challenge to streamline their selection and acquisition since e-books and print books are rarely released simultaneously and there is typically scant information available on forthcoming e-books. In this session, Gabrielle Wiersma from the University of Colorado, and Sarah Forzetting from Coutts Information Services discussed their recent experiences incorporating e-books into print approval plans. Topics discussed included determining subject and publisher preferences, setting wait times for e-books, patron satisfaction/dissatisfaction when libraries choose to wait for an "e ...

Interlibrary Loan Purchase-On-Demand: A Misleading Literature, Gerrit van Dyk 2011 Brigham Young University - Provo

Interlibrary Loan Purchase-On-Demand: A Misleading Literature, Gerrit Van Dyk

All Faculty Publications

Many libraries are engaging in interlibrary loan purchase-on-demand without fully acknowledging all of the costs of adding such titles to their collections. This study compares the costs of monograph interlibrary loans and the costs of monograph accession, including staffing overhead costs for both. In order to be truly cost-effective, interlibrary loan purchase-on-demand titles must have a minimum projected circulation, depending on the base price to purchase the item. A review of current patron-driven acquisitions models associated with interlibrary loan purchase-on-demand is included.

Developing A Library Value Indicator For A Disciplinary Population, Jeanne M. Brown 2011 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Developing A Library Value Indicator For A Disciplinary Population, Jeanne M. Brown

Library Faculty Publications

Three different ways of documenting library value were presented to fourth year landscape architecture students in the UNLV School of Architecture: a contingent valuation survey, a library calculator, and a survey to rate importance and impact of library services and features. Students used the three approaches, then discussed their experiences with the author. Their input suggested improvements in the instruments and provided feedback on possible positive and negative consequences of inviting this kind of valuing. Working with a focused collection and population provided a relatively safe environment to explore concerns about negative consequences.

So Far, So Good, Audrey H. Schwinn 2011 Gettysburg College

So Far, So Good, Audrey H. Schwinn

Blogging the Library

Since I've come back from Spring Break, I've started working on a Collection Development project. So far I've been looking at books that people have given as gifts to the college and deciding whether or not we should have them in the collection. At this point I seem to be stuck thinking that we should just keep all of the books I've looked at so far because they all seem at least moderately interesting or helpful. My pack rat tendencies are coming out; it's something I need to work on. [excerpt]
