The challenges facing librarians of today in adopting the new technology skills were also dealt with and recommendations to help tackle these challenges were made.


The Impact Of Web-Scale Discovery On The Use Of A Library Collection, Doug Way 2010 Grand Valley State University

The Impact Of Web-Scale Discovery On The Use Of A Library Collection, Doug Way

Doug Way

Grand Valley State University Libraries implemented Serials Solutions’ web-scale discovery tool, Summon, during the fall of 2009. This case study explores whether Summon had an impact on the use of the library’s resources during its first semester of implementation. An examination of usage statistics showed a dramatic decrease in the use of traditional abstracting and indexing databases and an equally dramatic increase in the use of full text resources from full text database and online journal collections. The author concludes that the increase in full text use is linked to the implementation of a web-scale discovery tool.

Rethinking Bibliographic Control In The Web Environment, Karen S. Calhoun

Karen S Calhoun

Cataloging and metadata services have reached a crossroads. The digital age presents fundamental challenges to building and describing collections of interest to the communities that libraries serve.

This article describes the environment in which libraries are operating and identifies the key trends driving change in metadata creation and management. It also outlines the characteristics of a next-generation metadata creation and management platform for libraries, which the OCLC cooperative is planning, to ...

Media Literacy Education : A Case Study Of The New Mexico Media Literacy Project, Sam Nkana 2010 Andrews University

Media Literacy Education : A Case Study Of The New Mexico Media Literacy Project, Sam Nkana

Dissertations

Problem. England and Australia are the frontrunners in the establishment of media literacy education in schools, providing performance and content standards, norm-referenced tests, and pre-service university training for a specialty in media education. Canada is also in the advanced stage in the development of a media literacy curriculum. The United States, although a major producer of media, lags behind these countries in preparing its teachers and students to understand the media. Although national education standards and the curricular frameworks of all 50 states now contain one or more elements calling for some form of media literacy education, only a handful ...

Designing A Writing Intensive Course With Information Literacy And Critical Thinking Learning Outcomes, Jeanne M. Armstrong Ph.D.

Western Libraries Faculty & Staff Publications

Purpose: The paper aims to describe the process of redesigning the American Cultural Studies 499 course in order to integrate information literacy (IL) and critical thinking outcomes into specific assignments. Since this research and writing proficiency course at Western Washington University have traditionally been taught by a librarian with background in the discipline, the paper also considers the challenges in communication between librarians and discipline instructors about the concepts of IL and critical thinking.
Design/methodology/approach: Reviews of the literature on IL across the curriculum and on partnerships between librarians and discipline instructors will be combined with an analysis ...

Using A Student-Generated Survey To Inform Planning For A User-Focused Learning Commons, Sharon A. Weiner, John Weiner

Libraries Research Publications

A master’s comprehensive University is planning a learning commons to support undergraduate learning. The planning process included a literature review, site visits to commons, consultations with experts in the field, discussions with campus specialists, and surveys of patrons. The literature reports two primary forms of data gathering for learning commons: interview/observation and purposive surveys. This report describes the findings of a survey conducted to determine students’ perceptions of services relevant in learning commons. The findings indicated that the students wanted help with their information processing needs.

Increasing Resources In Tough Times: A New Funding Model For The Purdue University Career Wiki, George Bergstrom, Mary Dugan

Libraries Research Publications

The Purdue University Career Wiki is a collaborative project between the libraries and several career offices on campus. Begun in 2007 as a way to create efficiencies and keep the career offices better informed of efforts across campus, it has grown into a comprehensive resource sharing cooperative. The public side has become a one-stop-shop for students, faculty, and staff to see and utilize all the career resources on campus. Any office in the cooperative can bring new resources to the table, where they are trialed, discussed, and decided upon for group purchase. Recently we have begun talks with Purdue regional ...

As an example of this support in action, the authors' work with CASPiE [the Center for Authentic Science Practice in Education), an NSF-funded Undergraduate Research Center (URC) based out of the Purdue Department of Chemistry] is included as a case study.


Editorial: On Information Literacy In The Library Workforce, Sharon A. Weiner 2010 Purdue University

Editorial: On Information Literacy In The Library Workforce, Sharon A. Weiner

Libraries Research Publications

This editorial discusses the need for the library profession to promote information literacy in the workforce of their own libraries. There are growing concerns among employers in the general public about the preparation of employees for the demands of 21st century jobs. Although the library profession has led the development and promotion of information literacy in educational settings, there is little evidence in the literature that libraries foster information literacy in their employees, If library organizations support an information literacy workforce, the library can become a model, showing parent organizations the power of information literacy in the work environment.
