A Newbie At The Rdap Summit, Or How I Learned That The Rdap Summit Is For Everyone, Joanna Thielen 2018 Oakland University Libraries

A Newbie At The Rdap Summit, Or How I Learned That The Rdap Summit Is For Everyone, Joanna Thielen

Journal of eScience Librarianship

This commentary describes the thoughts and perceptions of a first-time attendee to the Research Data Access and Preservation (RDAP) Summit in March 2018. The author describes her initial hesitations to attend this conference as a data librarian from a medium-sized institution. But after attending, she is convinced that the RDAP Summit is for anyone interested in data, including librarians that work at medium- and small-sized institutions.

After describing the format of the Summit, the highlights of attending are described, including gathering ideas related to all aspects of research data management, access, and preservation; hearing data management perspectives from outside of ...


Supporting The Proliferation Of Data-Sharing Scholars In The Research Ecosystem, Ali Krzton 2018 Auburn University

Supporting The Proliferation Of Data-Sharing Scholars In The Research Ecosystem, Ali Krzton

Journal of eScience Librarianship

Librarians champion the value of openness in scholarship and have been powerful advocates for the sharing of research data. College and university administrators have recently joined in the push for data sharing due to funding mandates. However, the researchers who create and control the data usually determine whether and how data is shared, so it is worthwhile to look at what they are incentivized to do. The current scholarly publishing landscape plus the promotion and tenure process create a “prisoner’s dilemma” for researchers as they decide whether or not to share data, consistent with the observation that researchers in ...

Adapted for the US context by Sara K. Kuhn.

"The seven-level Researcher Skill Development framework extends the RSD's original 5 levels of student autonomy to include the degree of autonomy required for a successful research career. It therefore addresses not only students, but also early, middle and late career researchers. This involves the extension of the same facets of inquiry that appear in the original RSD framework to include two higher levels: 6 and 7." -- https://www.adelaide.edu.au/rsd/framework/rsd7/

www.rsd.edu.au

Adapted for the US context by Sara K. Kuhn.

"Research Skill Development (RSD) is about making explicit and coherent in regular university coursework the incremental attainment of research skills in a specific discipline. In the RSD, there are six facets of the research process, identified from the literature and modified according to Bloom’s taxonomy and our experiences of using the framework in the disciplines. The meaning of ‘research’ in this context is: students actively finding information new to themselves. Underlying this notion is the ‘degree of knowness ...


The Library Didn’T Explode: One Year After An Alma Migration, Benjamin Hockenberry 2018 St. John Fisher College

The Library Didn’T Explode: One Year After An Alma Migration, Benjamin Hockenberry

Lavery Library Faculty/Staff Publications

Been with your old library system for a long time, and faced with an anxiety-ridden migration to something new? St. John Fisher College and Nazareth College were running Millennium/Sierra for over a decade before a switch to Alma in June 2017. New vocabulary, new data structures, new search systems -- was there anything that *wasn't* new? Allay your fears: it's been a year, and the library didn't explode. This informal presentation will discuss what made migration and post-implementation Alma life bearable: what went well, what we're still working on, and where we've turned for answers ...


The Specialness Of Special Libraries, 2018 Pacific University

The Specialness Of Special Libraries

OLA Quarterly

This issue covers "The Specialness of Special Libraries," with a focus on the special libraries found in the state of Oregon. According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, “(s)pecial librarians work in settings other than school or public libraries … Law firms, hospitals, businesses, museums, government agencies, and many other groups have their own libraries that use special librarians” (Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2018, para. 10). According to the American Library Association, there are approximately 6,966 special libraries or information centers (“special libraries include Corporate, Medical, Law, Religious, etc.”) in the United States (American Library Association, 2015, para. 5).

Classification And The Specialized Library: Creating A Local Expansion Of Nlm Classification For Chiropractic Materials, Katie Lockwood 2018 University of Western States

Classification And The Specialized Library: Creating A Local Expansion Of Nlm Classification For Chiropractic Materials, Katie Lockwood

OLA Quarterly

Libraries with specialized collections often face unique challenges to providing access to their materials. Cataloging tools, including subject headings and classification systems, are often better suited for less focused collections. Call number classification systems in particular are problematic for libraries with greater depth in certain subject areas. Users expect to be able to walk to the shelf and browse everything about a certain topic in the same section. This is a reasonable request in small libraries, but it is often difficult when working within existing schemas. In response to this problem, the University of Western States Library developed its own ...


Wild Wild Archive: Analog Videotape Of The Rajneesh Movement At The Oregon Historical Society, Matthew Cowan 2018 Oregon Historical Society

Wild Wild Archive: Analog Videotape Of The Rajneesh Movement At The Oregon Historical Society, Matthew Cowan

OLA Quarterly

In 1989, local Portland television station KGW donated 512 U-matic videotapes to the Oregon Historical Society (OHS). Shot between 1983 and 1985, the collection consists of more than 300 hours of footage related to the Rajneesh movement in Oregon—when followers of the spiritual teacher Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh set up an intentional community three hours southeast from Portland. The donation included minimal documentation and no finding aid. The tapes were the end result of several years’ worth of work by local camera operators and reporters at the news station. Ranging in location from downtown Portland to Berlin discos to the ...


The Jackson County Genealogy Library: Over A Half-Century Of Helping People Find Their Roots, Cara Davis-Jacobson, Anne Billeter 2018 Rogue Valley Genealogical Society

The Jackson County Genealogy Library: Over A Half-Century Of Helping People Find Their Roots, Cara Davis-Jacobson, Anne Billeter

OLA Quarterly

When the first few folks who gathered together in Southern Oregon’s Rogue Valley to share their interest in genealogy and family research wrapped up their meetings back in the late 1960s, their “president,” Ora Strom, tucked their shared reference books under her bed for storage. Little did that small group know that they would come to embody the proverb, “From humble beginnings come great things.” Indeed, from those modest actions arose two significant and related Southern Oregon entities: The Rogue Valley Genealogical Society (RVGS) (www.rvgsociety.org) and the Jackson County Genealogy Library (JCGL) (www.rvgslibrary.org), which is ...


Supplementing Traditional Documentation With Oral History: Capturing Institutional Knowledge At Oregon State University Libraries, Rachael Davis 2018 Oregon State University

Supplementing Traditional Documentation With Oral History: Capturing Institutional Knowledge At Oregon State University Libraries, Rachael Davis

OLA Quarterly

Over the summer of 2017, I had the unique pleasure of documenting the workflow of a retiring serials technician who had been at Oregon State University’s (OSU) Valley Library in Corvallis for nearly 37 years. During her tenure, she took part in no fewer than seven online database system transitions and created a one-of-a-kind serials check-in workflow for each new system with her magic red binder. She once told me that, with that binder, she could navigate any new system because the basics of serials were always the same; it was just a matter of learning the new language ...
