Disrupting Diversity Narratives: Introducing Critical Conversations In Libraries, Ione T. Damasco

Roesch Library Faculty Presentations

In 2012, the Association for College and Research Libraries issued a document outlining eleven diversity standards for academic libraries to use in developing the skills and competencies that are necessary to serve diverse populations. The American Library Association lists “diversity” as one of its 11 core values.

In 2016, the Medical Library Association identified diversity and inclusion as essential values for the association, and in 2017, it appointed a Diversity Task Force to determine how to operationalize these values.

Typically, when we use the word “diversity” we refer to specific categories of identity: race, gender, ability, and sexual orientation, to ...


Cq Reviewers’ Reactions To My Editorial Policies, Michael Lynn 2018 Cornell University School of Hotel Administration

Cq Reviewers’ Reactions To My Editorial Policies, Michael Lynn

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] Peer review is an important part of the scientific process. It helps to separate good research from bad so that scarce journal pages and readers’ attention go the former rather than the latter. As editor of Cornell Hospitality Quarterly (CQ), I am particularly dependent on reviewers’ help because CQ is a cross-disciplinary journal whose submissions cover literatures and methodologies that vastly exceed my ken.

The Evolving Institutional Repository Landscape, Judy Luther

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

Advances in technology affecting content creation and digital dissemination continue to reshape the role of academic libraries. The impact of these changes requires reimagining a strategy for the library built around digital collections–not only those acquired from publishers but the growing variety of files created in the development of scholarship and learning. Institutional Repositories (IRs) are emerging as a vehicle for new directions in how libraries can support the academic community both locally and globally.

To gain insights and gather data on IR operations, we conducted interviews, an open survey, and web research to obtain a snapshot of the ...

The research is intended to expand the practice of designing libraries as places and spaces where social and emotional affordance is supported.

Data Analysis For Collection Management, Sally Krash, Mark Paris

Sally Krash

The first part of this presentation provides information on the current collections data analysis environment in most libraries, or the lack thereof. Libraries spend millions of dollars each year on resources and data analysis is an essential tool in providing good stewardship of those resources and the funds that are allocated for them. We can no longer rely on anecdotal evidence to inform collections decisions and need to implement tools to enable data-driven decision making that supports innovative collections strategies. The second part of this presentation focuses on work that has been done over the past year in the UMass ...
