Books & Book Chapters by Maurer Faculty

Ashley Ahlbrand's contribution to this volume is "Capturing Impact: Telling the Story of Your Scholarship Beyond the Citation Count."

When we conduct research, what is our end goal? Who is our audience? Since the mid-20th century, with the development, first, of journal citation indexes, then journal impact factors, then journal citation metrics for individuals, academia has seen increased pressure to publish and be cited in journals within one 's discipline. These citation metrics are used to compare schools and to evaluate scholars for promotion and tenure, for grant consideration, and for bestowing other awards and honors. Discipline-specific journal citations tend …

Making The Case For Law Tech, Janet Kearney

This article is based on a June 2021 presentation given at the annual conference of the British and Irish Association of Law Librarians.

"Exploring Citation Count Methods Of Measuring Faculty Scholarly Impact", Margaret Kiel-Morse

Books & Book Chapters by Maurer Faculty

Margaret Kiel-Morse's contribution to this volume is "Exploring Citation Count Methods of Measuring Faculty Scholarly Impact."

After US News & World Report's announcement in 2019 that they will provide a separate ranking of law schools based on faculty scholarly impact, scrutinizing the various methods of assessing scholarly impact has been a hot topic. The various methods include reputation surveys, citation counts, and publication counts. This paper focuses on citation counts. Several methods of conducting citation counts have been circulated since the 1990s, notably Brian Leiter 's studies using Westlaw 's Law Reviews and Journals database; the Leiter study updates conducted …


Informed By Joy: A Christian Librarian's Reflection On C.S. Lewis, David H. Michels 2022 Dalhousie University Schulich School of Law

Informed By Joy: A Christian Librarian's Reflection On C.S. Lewis, David H. Michels

Articles, Book Chapters, & Popular Press

In Surprised by Joy C. S. Lewis offers us his account of his conversion to Christianity. Using his experiences of joy as “signposts,” he leads us through his early life up to his conversion at age thirty-one. I reflect on Lewis’s account as a librarian, researcher, and fellow Christian, considering his information world and the people who aided and hindered him on his faith journey. I conclude with some thoughts on his and my own conversion, as both unique yet shared experiences within the Christian tradition.

"Real joy seems to me almost as unlike security or prosperity as it is …


Cool Tools 2022 Spotlight: Airtable, Sarah Woloschuk 2022 University of Michigan Law School

Cool Tools 2022 Spotlight: Airtable, Sarah Woloschuk

Law Librarian Scholarship

Picture this: I’m opening up an Excel spreadsheet. Contained within are the citations for faculty publications that have been held up from being added to our institutional repository (IR). The reason for the delay? All of them need to have permissions requested from a publisher before we can load a PDF. I’m new to the Scholarly Publishing Librarian position and curious about what this part of the workflow might look like.

And then I see that there are over 750 records-in-waiting.

My next thought was: how the heck am I going to keep track of what I do to clear …

Organized For Service: The Hicks Classification System And The Evolution Of Law School Curriculum, John L. Moreland

This article traces the origins and development of the Hicks Classification System, an in-house organizational scheme used by the Yale Law Library from the late 1930s to the 1990s. It explores the relationship between the Hicks Classification System and the changing pedagogical methods of the law school curriculum during the early part of the 20th century. It provides a brief biographical sketch of Frederick C.

“Pandemic Brain,” Burnout, And 2022, Olivia R. Smith Schlinck 2021 Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law

“Pandemic Brain,” Burnout, And 2022, Olivia R. Smith Schlinck

Library Staff Online Publications

In my first post, I wrote about the big feelings our students might be grappling with and how to approach the semester carefully, with kindness and grace. Lately I’ve been asking myself: how do we do the same for ourselves? Something about this moment – this month, this semester, this year, you pick – feels. . . off. People are stressed, depressed, or entirely burnt out. People are quitting their jobs at higher-than-average rates and having trouble focusing on their work, feeling overwhelmed and distracted. It’s almost 2022 and people are still struggling with processing 2020.

Improving Special Collections Discovery With Dcx Digital Exhibits, Rachel S. Evans

Sandbox Series

This short paper and presentation is an update on the previously presented in July of 2021 titled “Automation Using Metadata Filters & Leveraging Research Assistants” with Savanna Nolan. Since that presentation, UGA Law Library served as a beta tester for Elsevier’s DCX – the Digital Commons exhibit solution. Launched late summer 2021, the exhibits that went live from UGA Law pleasantly surprised librarians who were lucky enough to discover that researchers were already retrieving the new digital exhibit content in their search engine results. This short paper shares the reasons why I have preferred working in DCX to build digital …
