Promotions With Student-Athletes: Are You In Compliance?, Teresa Williams

Teresa Williams

Even if you are not a basketball fan, you have probably heard of the NCAA. And if you are an academic librarian, odds are you work at one of the institutions where athletic teams compete under the guidance of the NCAA operating bylaws. But did you know these bylaws can have a direct impact on your library promotions?


Librarians, Knowledge Creation, And Scholarship: A Matter Of „Ba‟ 場, Debbie Morrow 2010 Grand Valley State University

Librarians, Knowledge Creation, And Scholarship: A Matter Of „Ba‟ 場, Debbie Morrow

Presentations

How do you engage in professional development? What do you think of expectations for academic librarians to participate in scholarship and dissemination? Do you feel your library’s leadership and organizational structure are adequately supportive of librarians’ efforts to grow and be successful? The role of scholarship in academic librarians’ professional development is examined in the context of a model of knowledge creation borrowed from the corporate world and business expert Ikujiro Nonaka. Tacit and explicit knowledge, knowledge conversion stages, and ‘ba’ –facilitating environments for individual and organizational knowledge growth – are discussed in the context of the presenter’s library.

Author Rights, Or, The Rights Of Copyright, Marilyn S. Billings, Fred Zinn

Marilyn S. Billings

This moderated discussion will cover the two roles that institutional repositories can play when talking to instructors about copyright and fair use. On the one hand, we show repositories as a source of materials for instructors who are confused or concerned about the rules related the use of copyrighted materials in their teaching. On the other, we demonstrate how our own institutional repository, ScholarWorks, can be used as a publishing tool by instructors who want more control over how their works are used in education. As a group, we will discuss strategies for talking to instructors about repositories, as well ...

Use Of Ict Facilities For Serials Functions In Southern Nigeria Federal University Libraries, Chinwe V. Anunobi, Benson E. Edoka

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

The research was conducted in southern Nigeria federal university libraries to identify the extent of ICT use for serials functions. A questionnaire was distributed to staff from the 11 federal university libraries in southern Nigeria. The results reveal that serials functions are still predominately manual, with ICT being more prominent in the serials public services and preservation functions; public services activities involving the use of ICT are mainly access to and retrieval of serials and article titles. It is recommended that university libraries should make a decision on whether to equip serials units with ICT facilities or have a systems ...

The Use Of Impact Factor In The Appraisal Of Academic Librarians In Nigeria, Michael Onuchukwu Okoye

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

This study explores the degree to which academic librarians in Nigeria are committed to accepting the use of impact factor for assessing their academic performance. Fifty copies of a questionnaire were distributed and 41 returned. Descriptive statistics using means and percentages were used to generate data. A majority of the respondents disagreed that impact factor had wider acceptance than any alternative. More than half did not agree that many Nigerian scholars are reluctant to publish in international journals. Lapses in the provision of facilities which should facilitate high quality research are highlighted. It has become compelling on Nigerian universities to ...

Archiving Transgender: Affects, Logics, And The Power Of Queer History, Kelly Jacob Rawson 2010 Syracuse University

Archiving Transgender: Affects, Logics, And The Power Of Queer History, Kelly Jacob Rawson

Writing Program – Dissertations

Archiving Transgender:Affects, Logics, and the Power of Queer History examines three archives that collect transgender material in order to analyze archives as rhetorical sites where a complex interplay of language, politics, logic, and affect shape archival research. Current scholarship in rhetorical historiography has (re)turned to archives to consider the rhetorical dimensions of archives themselves and the impact these dimensions have on researchers (Kirsch and Rohan; Morris; Ferreira-Buckley). I extend and complicate this line of inquiry by focusing specifically on transgender archival practices and logics. Transgender archiving is an especially rich site for critical investigation because of the complexities ...
