In the spring of 2017, digital librarians and digital collection managers at Association of Research Libraries (ARL) member institutions were surveyed on practices and policies surrounding takedown requests in openly accessible digital collections. The survey collected basic demographic information surrounding the digital repositories (anonymized) and presented a series of hypothetical scenarios for respondents to consider and reflect upon.

Linkedin At The Library: A Continuing Collaboration, Ariana Santiago, Emily Vinson, Esmeralda Fisher, Ashley Lierman, Mea Warren

Collaborative Librarianship

The University of Houston Libraries collaborated with University Career Services to host LinkedIn at the Library, an event where students were offered reviews of their LinkedIn profiles and free professional headshots. Although LinkedIn at the Library was initially funded as a one-time event, the two units worked together to turn it into a recurring event. This article presents our methods for collaboratively planning and hosting the events, attendance and assessment results, and lessons learned for future collaborative efforts. LinkedIn at the Library is a unique example of an academic library’s partnership with a career services unit.

The Importance Of Interdisciplinarity: Redefining The Health Belief Model, Ross F. Lordo 2018 University of South Carolina

The Importance Of Interdisciplinarity: Redefining The Health Belief Model, Ross F. Lordo

Senior Theses

Throughout academia, there lacks an existence of a commonly utilized multicomponent and interdisciplinary approach in understanding our outside world. This thesis provides an analysis of the current state of interdisciplinarity and the need to develop interdisciplinary theory. Through this effort, the researcher utilizes the health belief model as a framework that is severely limited in applicable scope due to its constructs. Contrastingly, systems theory and game theory are validated as examples of theories with an interdisciplinary nature. Through the coding of the literature pertaining to the qualitative characteristics of the health belief model, game theory and systems theory, guidelines in ...

What You’Re Reading Is Wrong! A Look Into Exposed Authority And Its Influence On Information Perception For College Students., Falon Yates, Kristina Mcmahan, Caitlin Crawford

UNA Research Days

At times, when dealing with social media, it can be difficult to understand exactly where the information is being transmitted from. A user is likely at times to lack clarity in terms of the source of information. So, what happens when that information authority is exposed? Specifically, what happens when one judges the credibility of a story without knowing its authority, then judges again after the authority is exposed. Does it lessen, or increase? Further, what happens with the exposed authority is extremely poor authority? This poster session will explore those questions, specifically regarding the college students the researchers surveyed ...

Overcoming Objections To Oer From Faculty And Administrators, Cheryl Cuillier

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Awareness and usage of open educational resources (OER) in higher education is on the rise, thanks to OER advocates and digital repositories such as the Open Textbook Library, MERLOT, Cool4Ed, OER Commons, and more. But as the Open Education Librarian at the University of Arizona Libraries, I’ve encountered a variety of concerns from faculty and administrators about OER. These range from worries about content quality to the amount of time it takes faculty to adopt/adapt/create OER to the difficulty of finding OER in a particular subject (particularly for upper-division courses). Concerns also relate to academic freedom, campus ...

Getting To Know Our Web Archive: A Pilot Project To Collaboratively Increase Access To Digital Cultural Heritage Materials In Wyoming, Amanda R. Lehman, Bryan Ricupero

Digital Initiatives Symposium

The University of Wyoming is the only four year higher education institution in the state, a unique position amongst colleges and universities in the United States.

An Archive-It subscription was purchased in 2016, with an initial goal of capturing university related materials. In an effort to expand the scope and meaningfulness of the web archive, a project has been undertaken to use university and statewide relationships to build ...
