Duration Of Employment And Interpersonal Conflict Experienced In South Carolina Academic Libraries, Maggie Albro

This study uses Harvey, Blouin, & Stout’s (2006) Interpersonal Conflict Scale to examine the relationship between duration of employment and the level of interpersonal conflict experienced by South Carolina academic librarians. The results of this study indicate there is a low level of interpersonal conflict experienced in ...

This presentation shares the impetus, progress, and challenges encountered in developing and managing a library-wide decolonial metadata project at Florida International University (FIU) Libraries. The goal of this initiative is to develop inclusive metadata within our digital collections and finding aids that represent the communities we serve and to develop a metadata remediation plan that ameliorates the harm done by antiquated language.

Documenting Doha: Community Archiving And Collective Memory In Qatar, Sumayya Ahmed 2022 Simmons University

Documenting Doha: Community Archiving And Collective Memory In Qatar, Sumayya Ahmed

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

Heritage experts working in Qatar contend that international museum standards do not allow them to engage with local understandings of history and heritage, thereby acknowledging the disconnect between museums and Qatari collective memory. This article posits that due to the relative absence of relatable representations in international-facing museums, Qataris, building upon a local tradition of private folk museums, are collecting and sharing their heritage materials via social media in forms known in the field of archival studies as “community archiving.” In reviewing examples of Qatari online community archives, it notes correspondences to the characteristics of community archives that have been ...


Composers' Collected Works: A Case Study In Remote Work Compatible Catalog Maintenance, David Floyd 2022 Binghamton University--SUNY

Composers' Collected Works: A Case Study In Remote Work Compatible Catalog Maintenance, David Floyd

Library Scholarship

Approximately 15% of Binghamton University Libraries' 28,000 musical scores are collections of scores comprising a composer's complete works. Ideally, these large, multipart, non-circulating collections are cataloged consistently with either comprehensive records for each set, or individual records for each score within the set. Our catalog is inconsistent in this approach and requires remediation. The resulting workflow maximizes flexibility in who participates, where, and when, by siloing the portion of the work requiring data processing and advanced music cataloging skills. This poster will show both the workflow for standardizing composers' collected works sets, and how the project is designed ...
