Digitizing The Utah Code Annotated, Valeri Craigle 2021 S.J. Quinney College of Law

Digitizing The Utah Code Annotated, Valeri Craigle

Sandbox Series

When Utah’s three law libraries closed their doors in March 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic, legal practitioners, researchers, and self-represented litigants lost access to the superseded Utah Code Annotated (UCA), which existed only in print form at these three libraries. Access to the UCA was restored in early 2021 through an LSTA grant-funded project that digitized UCA volumes and pocket parts from 1943-1995 and disseminated these materials via an open access Digital Commons collection.

Dare To Dream: How Would You Teach 1ls Legal Research With No Restrictions?, Olivia R. Smith Schlinck

Library Staff Online Publications

When I started in my current role as an instructional librarian, I was given space to make the changes I thought necessary to improve an already-changing legal research program. I’ve made changes – some small, some more major – in both the 1L and upper-level research curriculum, but there is more to do. In particular, I’m not entirely satisfied with how we teach legal research to 1Ls.

Preserving Podcasts In Institutional Repositories, Erik Moore, Valerie Collins 2021 University of Minnesota

Preserving Podcasts In Institutional Repositories, Erik Moore, Valerie Collins

Sandbox Series

In response to the 2020 global pandemic, the University of Minnesota Archives sought to gather digital content documenting the public health crisis and institutional response to COVID-19. Staff identified university-produced podcasts from several departments as information-rich contemporaneous content that was also at high risk of loss. Over the course of this work, we determined that these podcasts should be preserved in our institutional repository, as we came to see University podcasts more broadly as a digital serial publication. Our focus is now on the ongoing maintenance of serial digital publications in a repository and demonstrating the preservation of podcasts as …

Is Open Access Equal Access? Pacer User Fees And Public Access To Court Information, John L. Moreland 2021 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

Is Open Access Equal Access? Pacer User Fees And Public Access To Court Information, John L. Moreland

Articles by Maurer Faculty

Our country has a long history of striving for openness and transparency in government processes. In 1978, the United States Supreme Court held, “It is clear that the courts of this country recognize a general right to insect and copy public records and documents, including judicial records and documents.” Long before America’s high court recognized this common law principle, court records were historically accessible for inspection by lawyers, journalists, land title companies, credit agencies, academics, and members of the general public. These individuals were also permitted to take notes as a part of their right to inspect court documents. Having …

Working With Non-Law School Patrons, Ashley A. Ahlbrand 2021 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

Working With Non-Law School Patrons, Ashley A. Ahlbrand

Books & Book Chapters by Maurer Faculty

Ashley Ahlbrand's contribution to the open access textbook, Introduction to Law Librarianship, is chapter 17, "Working with Non-law School Patrons."

Working in an academic law library, the primary patrons are the law school’s faculty and students. However, these may not be the exclusive patronage of the law library. Particularly in the case of a public law school library, the law librarian is likely to serve patrons outside of the law school as well. These patrons come from a diversity of backgrounds, with a range of legal research needs. Working with non-law school patrons can present a number of challenges …


Law Students, Covid-19, And Big Feelings, Olivia R. Smith Schlinck 2021 Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law

Law Students, Covid-19, And Big Feelings, Olivia R. Smith Schlinck

Library Staff Online Publications

It’s Fall 2021 and well . . . we’re back. Or rather – some of us are. Along with a patchwork of universities requiring vaccinations and/or masks for students comes a patchwork of modes of instruction: fully online, hybrid, fully in-person (and subject to change). Some employees have shifted to occasional work-from-home models while others are required to be in-person every day. It’s all very complicated. Honestly, right now everything is complicated. With big, complicated situations come big, complicated feelings, and our students’ feelings are certainly that: big.

The Copyright Trends In India, And The Level Of Copyright Awareness Among Academic Librarians, Anjaneya Reddy N M

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Academic librarians often need to deal with copyright issues at their institutions while handling information resources, and they must have a clear understanding of copyright laws, practices, and its implications. This paper examines the copyright trends in India, and librarian’s familiarity with copyright laws and sources consulted to acquire copyright education. Copyright registrations in India are constantly increasing and copyright infringement cases are gradually decreasing. The study has shown impressive results that the majority of academic librarians (90.70%) are aware of copyright laws and their practice. Further, the study illustrates that the majority of librarians (63.27%) have only a basic …

On The Ground: Real-World Solutions From Start To Finish: Tips From An Imperfect But Aspiring Writer, Ashley Ames Ahlbrand

Articles by Maurer Faculty

I have a love-hate relationship with writing. Ever since I wrote my first term paper, I have relished researching a thesis topic and exploring my findings. I love assembling the seemingly remote pieces of the puzzle and watching the image take form. (It is perhaps no small wonder that I pursued a career in librarianship, where research is front and center.) Like so many of my fellow English majors, I also love the romantic notion of the writing life—nestling in at a cozy coffee shop to write for hours on end, the shop’s buzz in the background, saturated in the …


Library Management With Fayol's 14 Principles: Practical Insights, Parbat Chhetri 2021 MLIS Student, Department of Library and Information Science, University of North Bengal, Darjeeling, West Bengal, India.

Library Management With Fayol's 14 Principles: Practical Insights, Parbat Chhetri

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

This study explores the practical application of Henri Fayol's 14 Principles of Management in the context of library management. Amid the evolving landscape of libraries, these principles offer a potential framework for optimizing operations and enhancing services. Through a document analysis of web resources, the researcher thoroughly examines each principle's adaptability to libraries. The study's purpose is to discern how these principles can effectively guide decision-making, workflow, and staff engagement within diverse library settings. While the findings shed light on the positive impacts of principle integration, it's important to note that the application may vary due to library-specific nuances. This …
