Pitch Perfect: Achieving Faculty And Administrative Support For Techie Projects, Elizabeth Manriquez

Sandbox Series

Technology can be daunting, but understanding difficult concepts is essential for a successful institutional repository manager. When beginning an innovative IR project, the “how” may seem the most difficult piece. However, understanding your own project is just the beginning. How do you then explain and sell your project to a group lacking IR expertise? This article will discuss the complications and best practices associated with garnering support from vital faculty and campus administrators for IR projects centering on technological concepts unfamiliar to them.

Accessibility, Susan David deMaine 2021 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

Accessibility, Susan David Demaine

Books & Book Chapters by Maurer Faculty

Susan deMaine's contribution to the open access textbook, Introduction to Law Librarianship, is chapter 3, "Accessibility."

Abstract: Equitable access, which includes access for people with disabilities, is included in the first principle of the ethical codes of both the American Association of Law Libraries and the American Library Association. Accessibility in law libraries that are open to the public is an especially keen concern because it implicates access to justice and government information, both of which are key to a successful democracy. This chapter will introduce concepts that help us think productively about accessibility and explore accessibility issues in …


Democracy Requires Good Law Libraries – With Books, Franklin L. Runge 2021 Washington and Lee University School of Law

Democracy Requires Good Law Libraries – With Books, Franklin L. Runge

Library Scholarship

In this brief commentary, the author argues for the continued presence of a print collection in law libraries because (1) law libraries serve as a fail-safe for democracy, (2) inexperienced researchers achieve a greater understanding of how primary law is produced when exposed to print materials, and (3) there is still a high demand for print materials in scholarly endeavors.

This study aimed at shedding light on the progress of the library movement in the centenary of the Jordanian state, by defining the role of libraries and operative institutions in this field, in addition to measuring the reality of the published intellectual production of books and periodicals qualitatively, objectively, and temporally using the descriptive analytical approach (bibliometric).

Leveraging Bepress’S New Api For Metadata Transformations, Aaron Retteen 2021 Texas A&M University School of Law

Leveraging Bepress’S New Api For Metadata Transformations, Aaron Retteen

Sandbox Series

Getting metadata and content into our Digital Commons institutional repository was always straightforward, but getting information from the repository was always limited and challenging. With the recent release of an API, Digital Commons repositories can be engaged with in exciting new ways. For this series, I’ll discuss my summer project of taking metadata stored into the repository and transforming it into clean metadata for importation to our university’s research information system.


Creating Topical Exhibits In Digital Commons, Linda Tesar 2021 William & Mary Law School

Creating Topical Exhibits In Digital Commons, Linda Tesar

Sandbox Series

When the William & Mary Law School Equity and Inclusion Exhibits Committee decided to begin hosting a series of physical exhibits with online components, the Wolf Law Library staff eagerly offered the scholarship repository as the best place to house the online exhibits collection. In late February, the library launched the first digital exhibit, “Black History at W&M Law.” In this talk, Linda will discuss the repository structure and format W&M chose, how different material was integrated into the collection, and give some insight into what worked and what didn’t.


Reflections On Critical Librarianship And Creating A Controlled Vocabulary, Olivia Smith 2021 Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law

Reflections On Critical Librarianship And Creating A Controlled Vocabulary, Olivia Smith

Sandbox Series

During the summer of 2020, several members of the Cardozo Law Library collaborated to create a controlled vocabulary (CV) for LARC, our institutional repository. During the creation of this CV, there was no explicit intention to consider critical librarianship teachings while making decisions about what words “belonged” in the CV nor in drafting policies relating to the CV. This presentation will reflect on how beginning the project with critical librarianship in mind may have impacted the CV and will attempt to consider changes to the current policies to mitigate biases that are undoubtedly embedded in the CV as it stands.

Although a physical exhibit began to take shape in the summer of 2020, limited building access presented challenges in sharing aspects of the exhibit with the community. Rachel and Savanna will share the method …

A Review Of Grey Literature Cited By Food Loss Law And Policy Scholarship, Angela Hackstadt 2021 University at Albany, State University of New York

A Review Of Grey Literature Cited By Food Loss Law And Policy Scholarship, Angela Hackstadt

University Libraries Faculty Scholarship

In the United States, state and federal programs, rules, and legislation attempt to address the social, economic, and environmental impacts of food waste. Research on the efficacy of these interventions rely on a variety of grey literature resources. Grey literature is valuable to policy research but may be overlooked because it is not published commercially and is often deemed unauthoritative. This review focuses on the use of grey literature in food waste law and policy scholarship to identify the most used sources and to determine what, if any, archiving strategies authors use. Recommendations for librarians and researchers are discussed.
