Research Performance Support: Connecting Online Graduate Students From The Lms To The Library, Kim G. Read, Maureen Joyous Morasch

Kim Read

Universities expand their online graduate programs daily, which challenges academic librarians to maintain research support and information literacy instruction for the growing number of online students. Performance support offers a scalable solution to the problems of limited time and staffing that academic librarians face. When embedded in the learning management system throughout a course or program, performance support provides point of need research help and scaffolds students’ information literacy development. Librarians are able to focus their limited time helping students with their more advanced research needs.

Preserving The Full Historic Record In Holistic Newspaper Digital Preservation: From The Backend To The Front, Virginia A. Dressler 2018 Kent State University

Preserving The Full Historic Record In Holistic Newspaper Digital Preservation: From The Backend To The Front, Virginia A. Dressler

Virginia A Dressler


The paper will address two issues present in digital newspaper collections, namely that of long-term storage and access solutions specific to this medium, and takedown requests. The paper will outline the storage and hosting solution in place at Kent State University (KSU) of the student newspaper. The current digital archive contains ninety years of the printed newspaper (1926-2016), both reflecting both digitized and born-digital content. Decisions will be highlighted on the files retained on the dark archive (pod0), and conversely which files are stored on the hosting platform as access files.
 
Then, results will be presented from a recent research ...

Orcid Integration At The Unlv Libraries, A.L. Carson, Matthew Murray, John Novak 2018 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Orcid Integration At The Unlv Libraries, A.L. Carson, Matthew Murray, John Novak

Library Faculty Publications

As of spring 2018, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Libraries is in the middle of its ORCID implementation for campus. The process began in late 2016, when UNLV became premium members of ORCID through a deal negotiated by the Greater Western Library Alliance. ORCID provides researchers with a persistent digital identifier, which disambiguates individuals and allows them to receive proper attribution and credit for their work.

As premium members, the Libraries would receive reports from ORCID about researcher activity and have access to the ORCID API. With the API, the Libraries could receive notifications of our campus research ...


The Discoverability Of Award-Winning Undergraduate Research In History: Implications For Academic Libraries, Jody C. Fagan, Malia Willey 2018 James Madison University

The Discoverability Of Award-Winning Undergraduate Research In History: Implications For Academic Libraries, Jody C. Fagan, Malia Willey

Libraries

Making scholarly information visible to web search engines is an ongoing challenge, and undergraduate research is no exception. Using a sample of award-winning undergraduate history papers and journals, the authors searched Google, Google Scholar, Microsoft Academic, and the authors’ institutional repository to gauge the difficulty of locating these works. Given that many of these works were not easily found, results suggest that libraries and their institutions could be doing more to increase the discoverability of undergraduate research. Based on the success stories observed in this study, we offer strategies to libraries and librarians for increasing the visibility of undergraduate student ...


The Right To Be Forgotten And Digital Collections: Surveying Practice And Policy At Arl Member Institutions, Virginia A. Dressler, Cynthia Kristof 2018 Kent State University - Kent Campus

The Right To Be Forgotten And Digital Collections: Surveying Practice And Policy At Arl Member Institutions, Virginia A. Dressler, Cynthia Kristof

Virginia A Dressler

In the spring of 2017, digital librarians at Association of Research Libraries (ARL) member institutions were surveyed on practices and policies surrounding takedown requests in openly accessible digital collections. The survey collected demographic information and also presented a series of hypothetical scenarios for respondents to consider and reflect upon. The survey received a 25.8% response rate, with many intriguing insights into how practitioners consider these type of requests. Survey findings and general background on the topic of the right to be forgotten will be presented, along with a discussion on future recommendations for work in this area.

Evaluation Of Open Data Government Sites: A Comparative Study, Jayanta Kr Nayek

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

The problems of open data government sites are mainly in the way data is presented by various government data repositories. There are no metadata standards, specifications, or protocols to achieve better discoverability and interoperability. This paper aims to find a way to solve the problems with open data government sites and propose a framework to provide web based data services which will be semantically structured and also propose a common metadata standard or mechanism for interoperability. Six data government sites have been selected for the study, according to the more number of dataset available and also to cover all continents ...

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

ABSTRACT

Information and communication technology (ICT) has changed the world of library such that activities been carried out manually before are now been automated. The work of library staff are now being characterized by information and communication technologies. Academic libraries were observed to be more equipped with information infrastructures more than any other type of libraries, but no library no matter how well equipped that doesn’t require the service of a workforce that is highly competent in the use of ICT tools, as such information infrastructure will remain unused or under-utilized. It is in connection to the above, that ...

Spotlight On A Discipline: An Introduction To Archival Practices, Rachel Moats 2018 University of North Georgia

Spotlight On A Discipline: An Introduction To Archival Practices, Rachel Moats

International Social Science Review

Archives are often met with confusion and the assumption that they operate in similar ways to libraries. The differences between libraries and archives are vast, but once understood, make perfect sense. Drawing on the writings of archival scholars, my own knowledge, and the desire to explain the nuances of archives, this essay aims to educate the reader on archival theory and practices, explain the differences between libraries and archives, and demystify archives so that they are more accessible.
