Racial Pay Gap: An Analysis Of Carl Libraries, Yanli Li 2021 Wilfrid Laurier University

Racial Pay Gap: An Analysis Of Carl Libraries, Yanli Li

Library Publications

Using data from the 8Rs CARL Libraries Practitioner Survey in 2014, this study assesses the impact of race on the earnings attainment process based on a sample of 392 CARL library practitioners. It determines that there is a significant salary disparity between visible minorities and non-visible minorities. Racial differences in job characteristics account for a larger portion of the explained racial salary gap than individual and labor market characteristics. The effect of race on salary is shown to be weaker for librarians than for support staff.

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Institutional repository (IR) is the channel through which an academic institution showcases her research power to the world.

It is in view of the above that this study on ‘the current state and building of institutional repository in the library of Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ikwo, Nigeria’ is carried out.

Library Technical Services: Adapting To A Changing Environment, Stacy Marien 2020 Purdue University

Library Technical Services: Adapting To A Changing Environment, Stacy Marien

Purdue University Press Book Previews

Libraries are experiencing major changes concerning the role of technical services. Technical services librarians also are being challenged about their relevance and role, sometimes revealed by a lack of understanding of the contribution technical services librarians make to building and curating library and archival collections. The threats are real: relocation from central facilities, the dramatic shift to electronic resources, budgetary constraints, and outsourced processing. As a result, technical services departments are reinventing themselves to respond to these and similar challenges while embracing innovative methods and opportunities to advance librarianship in the twenty-first century. Library Technical Services provides case studies that ...

Publishing During The Pandemic: Strengthening Relationships, Removing Barriers, Reaching New Heights, Sherry Buchanan, Maika Yeigh

Assessing Textbook Costs At A Small College, Stephen G. Krueger, Lewis Ward

Dartmouth Library Staff Publications

In recent years, the cost of textbooks has risen drastically, making it an important issue for everyone involved in higher education.

Based on course catalogs, bookstore records, and other resources, they calculated the costs for students in different disciplines over four years of study. These costs were impacted by major, courses ...

Digital Repository Concierge @ Your Service, Anne M. Casey 2020 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Digital Repository Concierge @ Your Service, Anne M. Casey

Publications

Libraries often develop and implement new services for the public. Sometimes they succeed; other times they fail. Expecting community members to understand the benefits of a great new idea on their own may not always work. But, taking a concierge approach to the implementation and maintenance of an innovative service may make all the difference to its success. Using a case study from the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) library as a backdrop, this presentation will highlight the effectiveness of taking a concierge approach to implementing a new service in any type of library. In 2013, ERAU launched Scholarly Commons to ...

How Intelligent Ci Instruction Gives Law Students A Competitive Edge, Heather Simmons, Beau Steenken, Liz Whittington, Joshua Pluta

Presentations

"Competitive intelligence" (CI) is a term that gets bandied about across many sectors, but how exactly do law firms use it to further their business? Academics are aware of CI as a concept, but teaching students how to conduct competitive intelligence requires a more nuanced understanding of how it is actually used. In a discussion moderated by a newer academic librarian who will be teaching competitive intelligence for the first time, a firm librarian will share insights into how competitive intelligence can and should be used, and an academic librarian who regularly teaches competitive intelligence will offer tips on how ...
