How Undergraduate Students' Perceptions Of Academic Librarians Can Inform Innovative Teaching, Jody C. Fagan, Hillary Ostermiller, Elizabeth Price, Lara Sapp 2018 James Madison University

How Undergraduate Students' Perceptions Of Academic Librarians Can Inform Innovative Teaching, Jody C. Fagan, Hillary Ostermiller, Elizabeth Price, Lara Sapp

Elizabeth Price

Student perceptions of teachers can influence the success of instruction, and library instruction is no exception. Understanding the mindset of students can help academic librarians prepare for in-person and asynchronous classes and create instructional materials. By anticipating students’ impressions, librarians can challenge false assumptions and improve interactions. This poster highlights findings from a large study of how undergraduate students at one institution perceive academic librarians.


Osteopathic Medicine: Predatory Publishing: What To Know And How To Avoid Them, Lara Lasner-Frater, Susan Lesser 2018 Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine (New York)

Osteopathic Medicine: Predatory Publishing: What To Know And How To Avoid Them, Lara Lasner-Frater, Susan Lesser

Touro College Research Day

This poster presentation discusses predatory publishers and how to avoid them.

Predatory publishers exploit the emerging acceptance of open-access academic journals by making it attractive to publish (especially in a publish or peril world). They aggressively solicit articles from faculty and researchers with the intention of exploiting authors who need to publish their research findings in order to meet promotion, tenure or grant funding requirements.


Clemson Libraries Retro Etd Project, Joshua Morgan 2018 Clemson University

Clemson Libraries Retro Etd Project, Joshua Morgan

Presentations

In 2015, the Libraries began scanning theses and dissertations that were housed in our offsite storage facility. Many of these were single copies that were not held by any other library in the world, so we have insured their long term preservation in both print and electronic forms. We began scanning theses and dissertations in a then-cramped Gunnin Architecture Library, and are now scanning theses and dissertations housed in Cooper. The digitization process results in the removal of the circulating copies from Cooper and Gunnin, the creation of an electronic copy that is accessible anywhere on campus, and one non-circulating ...

One Journal Issue, Two Activities, Three Views: Information Creation As A Process, Nancy R. Curtis 2018 University of Maine

One Journal Issue, Two Activities, Three Views: Information Creation As A Process, Nancy R. Curtis

Library Staff Publications

Since we have shifted most of our serial subscriptions from print to digital format, our students encounter “scientific journals” as abstractions, not as the tangible objects familiar to their instructors. Furthermore, since students interact with journals via bibliographic databases, they lose access to visual cues indicating the nature of individual works. I presented two learning activities to early career undergraduate science students. The first introduced them to different online manifestations of the same issue of a scientific journal, and prompted them to consider how each format meets specific information needs. In the second, students examined a variety of information products ...


Conducting A Large-Scale Weeding Project In An Academic Library: Purpose, Plan, And Process, Kyle Olney 2018 Olivet Nazarene University

Conducting A Large-Scale Weeding Project In An Academic Library: Purpose, Plan, And Process, Kyle Olney

Faculty Scholarship – Library Science

According to Rebecca Vnuk, author of Weeding Handbook: A Shelf-By-Shelf Guide (American Library Association, 2015), “Weeding helps a library thrive.” We all want our libraries to thrive, yet for many of us weeding is one of the last activities we want to do. For others, the task may simply seem too daunting to even know where to begin. Add to this the pressure to clear space for a new campus initiative and the work can quickly become overwhelming. This presentation looks at a multi-year weeding project at Olivet Nazarene University’s Benner Library that ultimately resulted in the withdrawal of ...

b. Whether attendance at a previous library instruction session provided the students with the advantage of scoring higher in the assessment, and

c. Whether the use of these technologies in class sessions was disruptive to other students.


The Scholarly Repository At Una: Using The Nasig Core Competencies For Scholarly Communication Librarians As A Framework To Develop Campus Support, Jennifer Pate 2018 University of North Alabama

The Scholarly Repository At Una: Using The Nasig Core Competencies For Scholarly Communication Librarians As A Framework To Develop Campus Support, Jennifer Pate

Faculty Presentations

How do you get started when your campus first adopts an Institutional Repository? What content and collections should you focus on first? How do you prioritize your campus partnerships? Who do you build rapport with first, faculty or students or administration? These questions, along with questions of copyright management, data management, metrics, and technical support, can overwhelm a new Scholarly Communication librarian. The combination of the relative newness and the lack of formal mentoring in our field can sometimes make it seem like you are fighting an uphill battle alone.

In August 2017, NASIG approved and adopted a set of ...


Bridging The Gap: Providing A Marketing And Support Framework For Ir Services, Jeffrey M. Mortimore, Debra G. Skinner 2018 Georgia Southern University

Bridging The Gap: Providing A Marketing And Support Framework For Ir Services, Jeffrey M. Mortimore, Debra G. Skinner

Library Faculty Presentations

Institutional Repositories require continuous promotion and support to attract and retain campus collections. However, balancing promotion with a clear representation of repository offerings, policies, and procedures is challenging, especially for institutions that rely on public services personnel for front-line promotion. This poster presents Georgia Southern University's recently-developed IR Services LibGuide as a model for providing such a framework (http://georgiasouthern.libguides.com/irservices/). This portal provides 1) a front-line promotional tool; 2) a client-management tool for support consultations; and 3) a storehouse for repository-related forms and licenses. It further integrates with the library's other scholarly communications-related guides, providing ...

Archivists And Technological Competencies: A Conversation About Archival Education, Anne Daniel, Amanda Jamieson, Amanda Oliver 2018 Western University

Archivists And Technological Competencies: A Conversation About Archival Education, Anne Daniel, Amanda Jamieson, Amanda Oliver

Anne Daniel

Archivists are working in a rapidly changing environment and it can be challenging to be aware of and proficient with current and emerging technologies. Donors, researchers, and other stakeholders have an expectation that archivists are able to manage and provide access to records in all formats. It is imperative that archivists develop technical competencies in order to engage with records, record systems, and stakeholders. An examination of the current Canadian landscape will allow us to have an effective discussion about technical competencies and identify any strengths, weakness, opportunities, and threats to developing these skills. Building on previous research, this session ...

The Importance Of Information In International Relations, Njabulo Bruce Khumalo, Miniyothabo Baloyi 2018 National University of Science and Technology - Zimbabwe

The Importance Of Information In International Relations, Njabulo Bruce Khumalo, Miniyothabo Baloyi

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Information and information technologies are steering international relations as they have fostered collaborations and even wars. Competition for information and information products have resulted in massive cyber-attacks and information wars. Information is being used by different countries for economic and political gains and this has brought about information theft and manipulation over the cyber. Information has become a central and key driver in international relations. However, different countries are not aware of the exact extent of the importance of information in international relations. This has made them not pay attention to securing their information and information products and even not ...
