Establishing An Omeka Digital Exhibits Presence: Collaboration And Customization, Courtenay Mcleland, Adam Chalmers, Jennifer Bibb

Library Faculty Presentations & Publications

In this presentation we discussed a collaborative effort that led to a digital exhibits program at the University of North Florida’s Thomas G. Carpenter Library. Using Omeka Classic, exhibits are created that foster discovery of content from Special Collections and University Archives in a visually appealing and thematic way. Additionally, the platform brings exhibits that are temporary and physically located in the library to a much broader audience. We discussed ways to adapt a custom theme vs using a prebuilt theme to deliver the user experience desired.

Aiming To Reenact: The Efficacy Of Military Living History As A Learning Tool, Leah T. Glenn 2021 State University of New York College at Buffalo - Buffalo State College

Aiming To Reenact: The Efficacy Of Military Living History As A Learning Tool, Leah T. Glenn

Museum Studies Theses

People around the world have been fascinated with recreating the past since antiquity. Over the past century, however, the presentation of historical information using various forms of human interaction and animation has gained increasing attention, at least in the historic site community if not largely accepted among academic historians. Utilizing a number of non-traditional tools to create a multisensory experience for visitors, this “living” history aims at entertaining the public while providing insights into the past not easily gained through more academic means. Further, there have been many sites, particularly those with a military theme, that have chosen to utilize ...


More Than A Museum: Museums' Past, Current, And Future Involvement With Racial Issues, Madeline B. Friedler 2021 State University of New York College at Buffalo - Buffalo State College

More Than A Museum: Museums' Past, Current, And Future Involvement With Racial Issues, Madeline B. Friedler

Museum Studies Theses

The year 2020 has been universally acknowledged as an extraordinary point in activist history. The Black Lives Matter organization has spearheaded a new wave of activism comparable to the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s and 70s. By evaluating how cultural learning centers such as museums have presented racial history in the past, an effective plan can be made on how museums should interpret this present-day history. Museums should not only recognize #BlackLivesMatter as an important part of history in an academic sense, but they should also actively promote positive racial change in the communities they serve. Research shows that ...

Cataloguing Education In The Era Of 4ir: The Way Forward, Madireng Monyela 2021 University of Limpopo

Cataloguing Education In The Era Of 4ir: The Way Forward, Madireng Monyela

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

The paper seeks to investigate Cataloguing Education (CE) in the era of 4IR and evolving technology with the observation that cataloguing is the core of any library service, without which there could be confusion in the retrieval of library information sources. Therefore, CE should equip students with skills that will enable them to work comfortably during any industrial revolution. Furthermore, 4IR entails transformation of humankind, and industries are now compelled to reconsider their ways of doing business to be in par with the economic world. Moreover, the exponential growth of information resources on the Internet and the World Wide Web ...

This study aims to determine a map of the development of religious conflict research in Indonesia. In this study, several scientific articles on the theme of religious conflict were reviewed. This study uses a quantitative approach with the bibliometric method. The results of the study show that the trend of religious conflict research in Indonesia ...


Unpacking Lateral Reading Through Practice And Reflection: Metacognitive Strategies Of Critical Source Evaluation, Andrea Baer, Daniel G. Kipnis 2021 Rowan University

Unpacking Lateral Reading Through Practice And Reflection: Metacognitive Strategies Of Critical Source Evaluation, Andrea Baer, Daniel G. Kipnis

Libraries Scholarship

Increasingly librarians are moving away from checklist approaches like CRAAP and advocating for “lateral reading” as a way to quickly evaluate the credibility of online sources. Essentially “lateral reading” is spending little time on a website and more time reading what other sources say about the website in order to quickly evaluate its credibility. While seemingly simple, lateral reading strategies are not always as straightforward as they first appear. Participants will practice lateral reading and consider ways to encourage students to bring metacognitive and critical thinking skills to using lateral reading for source evaluation.

Learning objectives:

  1. To become familiar with ...

Rise Up: The Student Research Symposium Goes Online, Anne Shelley

Faculty and Staff Publications – Milner Library

In Spring 2020, higher education institutions began implementing COVID-related precautions. While course delivery was most influenced by a variety of urgent decisions, also affected were events that were originally (and traditionally) scheduled to take place in-person that semester. While many events were cancelled outright, some were rescheduled or shifted online. At my institution, stakeholders decided to transition the popular annual student research symposium to an online event hosted by the institutional repository. This presentation will provide details of a successful collaboration between the library's institutional repository manager and symposium coordinators in the Graduate School. The presentation will cover workflows ...

Closing Keynote: Academy-Owned Non-Profit Open Access Publishing: An Approach To Achieve Participatory And Sustainable Scholarly Communications, Arianna Becerril García 2021 Redalyc

Closing Keynote: Academy-Owned Non-Profit Open Access Publishing: An Approach To Achieve Participatory And Sustainable Scholarly Communications, Arianna Becerril García

Digital Initiatives Symposium

The prevailing science communication system has showed little success in making science a global, participatory and equitable conversation. At the same time, a very robust ecosystem of science communication has been built in the Latin-American region, one that is intrinsically open, non-commercial and academy-owned. However, this “regional” approach has remained outside the legitimated channels of scholarly communication.

AmeliCA’s and Redalyc’s approach is based on the fact that scholarly communication in control of the academy is a strategy much healthier and sustainable for the development of science and society. Why is it that commercial publishers are a pivotal actor ...

Where Is The Social Democracy In Subscription Paywalls? Effects And Impact Of Transitioning Journals From Subscriptions To Open Access On Researchers In Developing And Transition Economies, Colleen Campbell, Rick Burke

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Nearly 20 years after the Budapest, Berlin and Bethesda Declarations on open access, the global academic community continues to struggle toward realizing its objective of an open information environment in which the world’s scholarly and scientific literature is freely available and at the service of society to accelerate research, enrich education and lay the foundation for a common, global intellectual exchange. Championing the cause, stakeholders in some geographic contexts have succeeded in delivering open access publishing options for their research outputs by fostering highly-regarded, locally-developed journals, platforms and repositories, yet a an enormous portion of the world’s scholarly ...

From Vision To Action And Assessment: Creating An Open Educational Resources (Oer) Strategic Plan And Measuring Its Impact, Regina Gong 2021 Michigan State University

From Vision To Action And Assessment: Creating An Open Educational Resources (Oer) Strategic Plan And Measuring Its Impact, Regina Gong

Digital Initiatives Symposium

The implementation of OER initiatives in higher education institutions typically begins with setting up a vision and establishing goals for the project. This process entails developing a strategic plan to help guide institutions on how to start an OER initiative to gain buy-in and support from campus stakeholders. The strategic plan helps translate the vision into concrete actions that are attainable as well as measurable. Furthermore, while cost savings to students are what institutions commonly report to indicate the impact of OER, adoption and usage goes beyond cost savings calculations. This presentation will discuss the OER strategic planning process and ...

The Tacit Knowledge Dilemma In Open Science, C. Sean Burns 2021 University of Kentucky

The Tacit Knowledge Dilemma In Open Science, C. Sean Burns

Information Science Presentations

A talk about the role that knowledge management (and sub areas) might play in open science. The open science movement has the goal of making transparent as much of the scientific process as is possible. This entails making publicly available (open source, access, etc.) the parts of the scientific workflow, such as the data, the software code, the manuscripts, that are used or generated in the process of doing research. However, Michael Polanyi's theory of tacit knowledge raises a dilemma that knowledge management researchers might be able to address. Specifically, if we accept the theory of tacit knowledge, the ...
