Cataloging Training On Demand: Redefining Instruction Through Self-Contained Online Modules, Marielle Veve 2009 University of North Florida

Cataloging Training On Demand: Redefining Instruction Through Self-Contained Online Modules, Marielle Veve

Marielle Veve


With continuing changes in the cataloging field and increasing staff turnover, many cataloging departments must train newcomers and update staff on current trends too frequently. The constant demand for internal training can be difficult to satisfy, as valuable knowledge is lost when trainers leave and remaining catalogers struggle to keep up with increasing workloads and tenure requirements.

Drupal is one of top tech topics in libraries right now. Academic libraries think very carefully about how they design their websites, and more and more libraries look at Drupal as a framework for their website development, as well as a cohesive interface for gathering content coming from different silos. In this paper we highlight the high degree of similarity that we observed across the websites of academic libraries in the United States, and we analyze the use of open source content management systems, with an emphasis on Drupal, in the development of these websites.

Numeracy: Open-Access Publishing To Reduce The Cost Of Scholarly Journals, Todd A. Chavez

Todd A. Chavez

Each fiscal year, as academic librarians throughout the United States prepare materials budgets, a national “groan” ensues.

This paper examines some of the economic issues concerning open-access (OA) journal publishing. The importance of quantitative literacy is suggested for librarians and academics seeking a better understanding of alternatives to traditional journal subscription models and to anyone considering ventures into OA publishing. Quantitative literacy is essential for managing alternatives to the rising cost of scholarly ...
