Erin Jerome

Library staff from the Five College Libraries drew upon their existing consortial network to start a cohort of metadata-interested individuals for support and collaboration across institutions. The resulting (unofficial) Five College Cataloging & Metadata Group meets twice per semester to share new skills and ideas, help each other with tool and technology questions, and to provide a sounding board for potential training and professional development across all colleges and for metadata practitioners at all levels.

Habits Of Mind In An Uncertain World, Craig Gibson, Trudi E. Jacobson 2018 The Ohio State University

Habits Of Mind In An Uncertain World, Craig Gibson, Trudi E. Jacobson

University Libraries Faculty Scholarship

The current political and cultural polarization in the United States and other countries has significant implications for all educational institutions and for libraries and librarians. The interrelated issues of trust, credibility, and authority now present major challenges because of the uncertainty of the social media environment, competing information “bubbles,” and enduring cognitive biases. The accelerating fragmentation of the media and information ecosystems undermines communal understanding of large and complex issues that citizens must face. To address this profound societal challenge, academic librarians should collaborate with faculty members to create communities of inquiry for students—sustained “high impact practices” that address ...

Reflections On Fake News, Librarians, And Undergraduate Research, Lisa M. Rose-Wiles 2018 Seton Hall University

Reflections On Fake News, Librarians, And Undergraduate Research, Lisa M. Rose-Wiles

Praxis Publications

The recent explosion of “fake news” highlights the need for academic libraries to provide access to reliable information resources and for librarians to instruct students in using them effectively. Providing reliable resources with minimal barriers to access involves cooperation among librarians, publishers, and vendors; however, I suggest that there is tension between our mutual desires to satisfy student demands for instant and perfect results and to encourage them to become persistent and critical information seekers. Many tools exist to assist students in gaining background information and limiting search results, but ultimately none replace the need to develop and explore questions ...

Pizza With A Side Of Outreach: Re-Invigorating Library Outreach At Distance Campuses, Teagan Eastman, Erin L. Davis

Library Faculty & Staff Presentations

In Fall 2016, we began hosting library open houses at our Regional Campuses (RC). In collaboration with our RC administrators and student government, these events serve as an ice-breaker for interactions between librarians and students. They raise awareness of library resources and services and ease anxiety about reaching out to the library for assistance, while providing food as an incentive to meet with us.
