Sharing The Best Resource You Have, Rosemary B. Humphrey 2018 Kennesaw

Sharing The Best Resource You Have, Rosemary B. Humphrey

Rosemary Humphrey

It is our business to share, but many of us do not share our best resource: our knowledge. Often people are thrown into Interlibrary Loan (ILL) with little to no training. Feeling lost, alone, and overwhelmed they do not know where to go to seek help. In 2017, the Georgia Library Association’s ILL Interest Group began holding meet ups across the state to connect people working in ILL. Lessons learned and tips for starting your own meet-ups will be discussed. 


Developing Openness Through Scholarly Communications In The Academic Library, Mary Jo Orzech, Kim Myers, Samuel Abramovich 2018 The College at Brockport

Developing Openness Through Scholarly Communications In The Academic Library, Mary Jo Orzech, Kim Myers, Samuel Abramovich

Library Presentations

Librarian perspectives range from protective and permissions-oriented about resources to being very open about sharing information. As librarian roles evolve, their values, identities, and responsibilities are changing as well. This poster outlines some ways academic librarians are infusing aspects of openness into their work. Librarians are focusing on open activities such as promoting and planning in support of instruction, discovery, research, copyright, preservation, and more. The poster highlights the team effort needed to support openness efforts. Openness in moving to open data, open research, open publishing, open educational resources, open pedagogy, and open education in general, is a growing strategic ...


Lessons From The Treblinka Archive: Transnational Collections And Their Implications For Historical Research, Chad S.A. Gibbs 2018 University of Wisconsin-Madison

Lessons From The Treblinka Archive: Transnational Collections And Their Implications For Historical Research, Chad S.A. Gibbs

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

In work for his 1979 book The Death Camp Treblinka, Alexander Donat began the process of locating survivors of the camp and recording their histories. In a telling testament to the lethality of this place, he could identify only sixty-eight survivors. Analysis of Donat’s early findings—emerging six years prior to the publication of any major academic monograph on the subject—offers a window into the difficulties of conducting research on this Nazi extermination camp and its widely-scattered witnesses.

Treblinka’s disembarkation ramp was effectively the eye of a transnational needle through which so many passed and so few ...

Excuses For Silence: A Review Of The Silence Of The Archive, Anna Robinson-Sweet 2018 Simmons School of Library and Information Science

Excuses For Silence: A Review Of The Silence Of The Archive, Anna Robinson-Sweet

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

The Silence of the Archive by David Thomas, Simon Fowler, and Valerie Johnson promises to investigate the causes of archival silence, and to find solutions for dealing with these silences. The topic is timely and important at a time when distrust of power is high, and there exists a concomitant expectation of finding truth in the archives. The book is reticent in its investigation, however, shying away from calling out the way power is exercised to create silences. The exception is Valerie Johnson’s argument on the necessity of silence, which challenges the tendency toward stasis in the archive.


Increasing Diversity Representation In An Institutional Repository, Kim Myers, Mary Jo Orzech 2018 The College at Brockport

Increasing Diversity Representation In An Institutional Repository, Kim Myers, Mary Jo Orzech

Bucknell University Digital Scholarship Conference

Since its inception six years ago, our institutional repository has provided a number of opportunities to increase campus diversity awareness and representation. Examples begin with use as the registration/schedule platform for our annual Diversity Conference and as a repository for keynotes and other conference sessions. The repository also houses student journals such as 'Dissenting Voices', and we have built online exhibits related to artifacts from other parts of the world (e.g., New Guinea). A new e-book imprint has enabled us to publish books in Spanish and about other times and cultures, e.g., 'Gilgamesh'. The repository has allowed ...


A Critical Look At The Digital Scholarship Corpus: How Access Influences The Questions We (Can) Ask, Gesina A. Phillips 2018 Duquesne University

A Critical Look At The Digital Scholarship Corpus: How Access Influences The Questions We (Can) Ask, Gesina A. Phillips

Bucknell University Digital Scholarship Conference

Access to research materials is an issue that cuts across disciplines and impacts most researchers as they gather information. For a digital scholar in need of a textual corpus, however, these challenges may be particularly acute. Those studying mid-to-late 20th century works may find themselves in uncertain territory with regard to copyright and licensing. Those studying historically marginalized populations may have trouble finding a pre-compiled corpus, or finding texts at all. Researchers at smaller institutions or in underfunded departments may find that existing datasets are not available to them due to cost, or that they run into copyright and licensing ...


And There Was Ds For All: Extending Access Throughout The Library For A Sustainable Service Model, Kimberly D. Hoffman, Eileen Daly-Boas, Kristen Totleben, Emily Sherwood 2018 University of Rochester

And There Was Ds For All: Extending Access Throughout The Library For A Sustainable Service Model, Kimberly D. Hoffman, Eileen Daly-Boas, Kristen Totleben, Emily Sherwood

Bucknell University Digital Scholarship Conference

In order to create a sustainable service model for Digital Scholarship (DS), River Campus Libraries recognized the need to expand staff expertise and advocacy beyond the Digital Scholarship Lab (DSL). The challenge: Training everyone in a way that is both timely and fiscally responsible. The solution: Leveraging costly, intensive professional development opportunities to re-create a modified peer-to-peer learning experience. By increasing staff access to foundational DS theories, concepts, methodologies, and tools, libraries can foster a community of experts toward advocating for and working collaboratively to facilitate DS projects.

In this interactive workshop, presenters will share benefits resulting from collaborative professional ...

Archivesspace In A Shared Environment: The University Of Nebraska Consortium Of Libraries Experience, Angela Kroeger, Larissa Krayer

Criss Library Faculty Proceedings & Presentations

ArchivesSpace is a web-based, open-source, community-supported tool for managing and making accessible archival collections. However, implementing it can seem overwhelming for institutions with limited staff, technological skills, and/or resources. That’s where a consortium can help! In this presentation, we will give a brief overview of ArchivesSpace at the University of Nebraska (NU) system. The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) started using ArchivesSpace four years ago. In 2017, in collaboration with UNO, the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) began implementing ArchivesSpace. This project led to the NU system exploring the options for a deeper collaboration involving all ...
