Systemic Racism In Publishing: Understanding Barriers And Creating Spaces For Voices Of Color, Harrison W. Inefuku 2018 Iowa State University

Systemic Racism In Publishing: Understanding Barriers And Creating Spaces For Voices Of Color, Harrison W. Inefuku

Harrison W. Inefuku

For those who pursue a career in academia, one's publishing output is a central consideration in decisions around hiring, tenure, and promotion. The ability to get published determines, in large part, one's ability to enter and advance in academia. Systemic racism in academic publishing erects numerous barriers for scholars of color, from considerations of "marketability," the peer-review process, the selection of book reviewers, and how publications are valued in tenure and promotion decisions, among others. This presentation considers the demographics of the academia and publishing industries and the effects of systemic racism on the ability of scholars of ...

Methods: This paper describes an environmental scan conducted to determine whether major research institutions in the United States are providing enterprise ELN licenses to their users, which products they are licensing, and what role of the institutional library is playing in licensing and supporting ELNs.

Results: Of the 35 universities included in our scan, 8 (23%) had an enterprise-wide license for an ELN and 10 ...

Developing A Social Justice Mindset In Technical Services, Ione T. Damasco

Roesch Library Faculty Presentations

These days, the words "equity," "diversity," and "inclusion" are used throughout libraries. But what do people mean when they use these words? And how do these words manifest in library technical services work? In this talk, participants explored how they can give these words real power when they frame them within a social justice mindset. The program started with an understanding of who participants are as individuals and how they fit into larger systems and structures of societal oppression. They they explored together how their work in technical services can contribute to the dismantling of those systems to ensure a ...

Tweeting The Ir, Paul Royster 2018 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Tweeting The Ir, Paul Royster

DC-HUG '18

Social media has become an important means of keeping up to date for busy IR managers. Limited to short, pithy messages, but permitting linking and re-tweeting, the Twitter medium is both handy and powerful … when used appropriately. Alternatively, it can become a portal to fascinating, entertaining, horrifying, and time-consuming off-topic content and even an avenue for online harrassment. The presentation for DC-HUG will involve audience participation, and will include discussions of appropriate forms of identity, good and bad avatars, who to follow for scholarly communications subjects, whom to avoid for greater peace of mind, what are appropriate subjects, how to ...

The Future Of Open Access Journals In Academic Libraries: A Survey On Current Practices And A Blueprint For Collection Development (Survey Data), Barbara M. Pope 2018 Pittsburg State University

The Future Of Open Access Journals In Academic Libraries: A Survey On Current Practices And A Blueprint For Collection Development (Survey Data), Barbara M. Pope

Faculty Submissions

Print journals collection development is a long-standing academic library role, whose support of university curriculum and research is essential. However, academic libraries have weathered difficult collection development decisions due to costs and strained budgets. As technology has given rise to online journals and space is reallocated, libraries have shifted focus to online journals. In addition, some academic libraries select open access journals to supplement subscriptions, but lack criteria. Furthermore, academic libraries are challenged by some open access journals’ predatory practices, unreliable access, and lacking peer review. This article explores academic libraries’ open access journals collection development and provides a blueprint.

When Does A New Role Cease To Be New?: Situating The Work Of Library-Based Digital Humanities/Scholarship Support Positions, Paige C. Morgan, Helene Williams

Library Articles, Papers, and Presentations

When positions are considered new and substantially undefined, there is a risk of their continual expansion to encompass more tasks and responsibilities. Such is the case with the roles of Digital Humanities/Scholarship (DH/DS) Library professionals, which libraries have been hiring since around 2009. We have gathered over 150 job ads for these positions and are analyzing them on a number of vectors using AntConc, Tableau, and NVivo. Our previous 10-minute snapshot presentation at DLF 2016https://osf.io/vu22f/ introduced this dataset with particular attention to the credential requirements; since then, our corpus has nearly doubled in size ...

Library Faculty Presentations

Last year, three MLIS students from the University of Washington partnered with Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada and helped to identify an information need for new refugees. Although local city information for refugees is freely available online, this delivery method is not beneficial to individuals with limited English language proficiency or low digital literacy. To bridge this gap, we created a resource guide for refugees located in Southern Nevada, which can be adapted by libraries and resettlement organizations across the country.
