Toward A Better Data Management Plan: The Impact Of Dmps On Grant Funded Research Practices, Sara Mannheimer 2018 Montana State University-Bozeman

Toward A Better Data Management Plan: The Impact Of Dmps On Grant Funded Research Practices, Sara Mannheimer

Journal of eScience Librarianship

Data Management Plans (DMPs) are often required for grant applications. But do strong DMPs lead to better data management and sharing practices? Several recent research projects in the Library and Information Science field have investigated data management planning and practice through DMP content analysis and data-management-related interviews. However, research hasn’t yet shown how DMPs ultimately affect data management and data sharing practices during grant-funded research. The research described in this article contributes to the existing literature by examining the impact of DMPs on grant awards and on Principal Investigators’ (PIs) data management and sharing practices. The results of this ...

“Tell Us About Your Digital Archives Workstation”: A Survey And Case Study, Elvia Arroyo-Ramírez, Kelly Bolding, Faith Charlton, Allison Hughes

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

Archival staff in the Manuscripts Division, Department of Rare Books and Special Collections (RBSC) at Princeton University Library lacked a fully-equipped digital processing workstation to capture, transfer, and secure born-digital and digitized archival content for long-term preservation and access. Staff recently conducted a survey that included information about the digital processing workstations of twenty institutions. The results of this survey informed a successful proposal to acquire a Forensic Recovery of Evidence Device (FRED) to serve as our digital processing workstation. The article will share details about the survey and considerations that went into our decision-making process, as well as introduce ...


Integrating Data Science Tools Into A Graduate Level Data Management Course, Pete E. Pascuzzi, Megan R. Sapp Nelson 2018 Purdue University

Integrating Data Science Tools Into A Graduate Level Data Management Course, Pete E. Pascuzzi, Megan R. Sapp Nelson

Journal of eScience Librarianship

Objective: This paper describes a project to revise an existing research data management (RDM) course to include instruction in computer skills with robust data science tools.

Setting: A Carnegie R1 university.

Brief Description: Graduate student researchers need training in the basic concepts of RDM. However, they generally lack experience with robust data science tools to implement these concepts holistically. Two library instructors fundamentally redesigned an existing research RDM course to include instruction with such tools. The course was divided into lecture and lab sections to facilitate the increased instructional burden. Learning objectives and assessments were designed at a higher order ...


Space For Listening: Using A Library Unconference As An Alternative Method Of Communication, Matthew Murray, A.L. Carson 2018 University of Guelph

Space For Listening: Using A Library Unconference As An Alternative Method Of Communication, Matthew Murray, A.L. Carson

Journal of eScience Librarianship

As part of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) “Top Tier” initiative, the University Libraries contributes to the development of campus infrastructure and services to support research data management (RDM) and data preservation. Positioning the Libraries within the UNLV community as both partner and site for this development, we organized a faculty-oriented Research Data Management unConference during UNLV’s Research Week.

The unConference attracted researchers and high-level administration from across campus and provided a forum for engagement; it was also a means for the Libraries to learn about researcher needs related to RDM, identifying potential partners, problems, and areas ...


Behind Emammal’S Success: A Data Curator With A Data Standard, Jennifer Y. Zhao, William J. McShea 2018 Smithsonian Institution

Behind Emammal’S Success: A Data Curator With A Data Standard, Jennifer Y. Zhao, William J. Mcshea

Journal of eScience Librarianship

This paper explores the data challenges of a major collection method in the field of ecology: using infrared-activated cameras to detect wildlife. One such solution, eMammal, is now available to address these struggles. We delineate the key reason behind its success: a data curator who manages an established data standard and communicates with eMammal’s users and stakeholders. We outline the tasks of this data curator, mention how they can work with data librarians, and demonstrate that the data curator position is already applicable in several biological science fields with a few examples. We end by emphasizing the growth of ...

A Textbook Program Is Not For Us! Re-Imagining Failure Into New Possibilities, Heidi Blackburn, Tammi Owens 2018 University of Nebraska at Omaha

A Textbook Program Is Not For Us! Re-Imagining Failure Into New Possibilities, Heidi Blackburn, Tammi Owens

Criss Library Faculty Proceedings & Presentations

Sometimes, despite all our efforts, projects fail. We’re here to tell you that’s okay. In 2017, the University of Nebraska at Omaha's Criss Library created a Textbook Reserves Pilot Project. At the time we weren’t sure it would work out. We were optimistic, though. After all, we had plenty of evidence that said it would work: our literature review had examples of successful textbook programs. Our data showed textbook prices rising. We met with advisors across our campus who said students desperately needed textbooks to succeed. We had buy-in from library administrators, the bookstore, and student ...

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Lack of academic integrity has frustrated the attainment of educational objectives especially in tertiary institutions in recent times. Perhaps, one of the most prevalent fraudulent practice among students, academics and researchers today is plagiarism. This paper examines the concept, nature and intricacies of plagiarism. It notes the devastating effects of plagiarism on the individual, academic institutions and the society at large. The paper argues that libraries by their assigned and inherent functions have a strategic role to play in curbing plagiarism. The roles include awareness creation, teaching of referencing and citation skills, information literacy programmes among others. The paper concludes ...
