Looking Forward To Look Back: Digital Preservation Planning, Jennifer Brancato, Kayla Harris 2018 University of Dayton

Looking Forward To Look Back: Digital Preservation Planning, Jennifer Brancato, Kayla Harris

Jennifer Brancato

Digital information resources are a vitally important and increasingly large component of academic libraries’ collection and preservation responsibilities. This includes content converted to and originating from digital form (born-digital). Preserving digital material, such as social media and websites, is essential for ensuring that future generations know everyone’s story, especially those groups which have been historically underrepresented in official records. This presentation will detail the steps undertaken by a digital preservation task force to first assess the weaknesses in current practice, and then develop a plan to implement a digital preservation policy and workflow. As part of the project, the ...

Participants will be asked to participate in storyboarding exercise where they put together a learning object they can take back to their institution. Our goal is to demystify the tutorial creation process.


Making The Mission Visible: Altmetrics And Nontraditional Publishing, Jennifer Bonnet, Marisa L. Mendez-Brady 2018 University of Maine

Making The Mission Visible: Altmetrics And Nontraditional Publishing, Jennifer Bonnet, Marisa L. Mendez-Brady

Marisa Méndez-Brady

Whereas traditional book and journal publishing remain the gold standard for many post-secondary institutions, nontraditional publishing is just as prolific at the flagship university in Maine. The university has strong land and sea grant missions that drive a broad research agenda, with an emphasis on community outreach and engagement. However, the impact of researchers’ contributions outside of academe is unlikely to be accurately reflected in promotion, tenure or review processes. Thus, the authors designed a series of altmetrics workshops aimed at seeding conversations around novel ways to track the impact of researchers’ diverse scholarly and creative outputs. This paper presents ...


Transferability: The Application Of Information Literacy Competencies To Academic Area-Of-Interest Course Research Paper Among Adult College Students In An Undergraduate Liberal Arts Program, Lilleth C. Newby Beckford 2018 College of New Rochelle

Transferability: The Application Of Information Literacy Competencies To Academic Area-Of-Interest Course Research Paper Among Adult College Students In An Undergraduate Liberal Arts Program, Lilleth C. Newby Beckford

Lilleth C. Newby Beckford

This non-experimental exploratory sequential study was undertaken to assess the extent to which adult students can transfer and apply information literacy competencies, based on the AAC&U Information Literacy VALUE Rubric, to a research paper required in an area-of interest, intermediate or advanced level course. Participants were enrolled in an undergraduate liberal arts college degree program in a school designed on the andragogical model of adult education. Participants had completed a 2-credit information literacy course during a previous semester. To ascertain the students’ information literacy competencies, course research papers were assessed using three of the five components of the rubric. The targeted components were the ability to: determine the extent of information needed; use information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose; and, access information ethically and legally. Based on the achieved scores, the students demonstrated a greater ability to find appropriate scholarly resources, and, to incorporate those ideas into their research papers than the ability to acknowledge and credit authorship of original sources.

Special Deliveries: Towards A Methodology For Generous Fulfillment Of Special Collections Interlibrary Loan Requests, Melanie Griffin, Leetta M. Schmidt

LeEtta M Schmidt

This article explores the implementation of special collections interlibrary loan policies and procedures at the University of South Florida (USF), focusing particularly on the development of policies related to physically loaning published materials, and traces the development of these policies through a pilot project to routinized implementation. Particular attention is paid to developing mutually beneficial workflows between special collections and interlibrary loan departments, creating transparent policies for the criteria under which requests are or are not filled, and technical considerations for implementing special collections loans. Through this case study, we highlight the potential for collaboration in the fulfillment of special ...

Analysis For Science Librarians Of The 2017 Nobel Prize In Physiology Or Medicine: The Life And Work Of Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash, And Michael W. Young, Neyda V. Gilman

Library Scholarship

Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash, and Michael W. Young are the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine Laureates, having earned the award for their “discoveries of molecular mechanisms controlling the circadian rhythm.” They identified the genes involved in the circadian rhythm mechanism and explained how all of the different pieces of the mechanism work together. These discoveries explain how the biological cycles of Earth’s organisms correspond to the rotation of the planet, acting as an inner clock. Their research also provides further opportunities to continue learning about the role of circadian rhythm and its relationship to human health ...


The Impact Of Library Tutorials On The Information Literacy Skills Of Occupational Therapy And Physical Therapy Students In An Evidence-Based Practice Course: A Rubric Assessment, April Schweikhard, Toni Hoberecht, Alyssa Peterson, Ken Randall 2018 Kennesaw State University

The Impact Of Library Tutorials On The Information Literacy Skills Of Occupational Therapy And Physical Therapy Students In An Evidence-Based Practice Course: A Rubric Assessment, April Schweikhard, Toni Hoberecht, Alyssa Peterson, Ken Randall

Library System Faculty Publications

This study measures how online library instructional tutorials implemented into an evidence-based practice course have impacted the information literacy skills of occupational and physical therapy graduate students. Through a rubric assessment of final course papers, this study compares differences in students’ search strategies and cited sources pre- and post-implementation of the tutorials. The population includes 180 randomly selected graduate students from before and after the library tutorials were introduced into the course curriculum. Results indicate a statistically significant increase in components of students’ searching skills and ability to find higher levels of evidence after completing the library tutorials.


The Public Purposes Of Libraries: Innovation And Impact Through Service Learning, Jennifer Nutefall 2018 Santa Clara University

The Public Purposes Of Libraries: Innovation And Impact Through Service Learning, Jennifer Nutefall

Staff publications, research, and presentations

Libraries are uniquely positioned to support academic institutions that seek to reflect community values and respond to issues of diversity and inclusion. The transformation in higher education is occurring through the incorporation of high impact educational practices and libraries are ideally placed to play a key role in this transformation. High impact education practices increase student retention and engaged and include practices such as learning communities, first-year seminars, internships, and service learning. Service learning integrates credit-based educational experiences with service in the community, and provides students space to reflect on what they have learned. By integrating librarians and information resources ...

Responsible Remixing: Resources For Improving The Scholarly Conversation, Anne Shelley 2018 Illinois State University

Responsible Remixing: Resources For Improving The Scholarly Conversation, Anne Shelley

Faculty and Staff Publications – Milner Library

Students are sometimes asked to complete course assignments that are rich in media, such as videos, posters, or presentations. Sometimes they create their own original content by shooting and editing their own video scenes or photographs. More often, students will use existing digital assets--such images, video, and audio files--that were created by other people, and they repurpose those works to create their own new products. In order to create quality remixed media projects, students need to have some level of multimedia literacy. In this presentation I will talk about resources that can help guide students in finding, selecting, and evaluating ...


The Secret Lives Of Ebooks: A Paratextual Analysis Illuminates A Veil Of Usage Statistics, Jonathan H. Harwell, Erin Gallagher 2018 Rollins College

The Secret Lives Of Ebooks: A Paratextual Analysis Illuminates A Veil Of Usage Statistics, Jonathan H. Harwell, Erin Gallagher

Faculty Publications

This study applies the method of paratextual analysis to six electronic books, or ebooks, in an academic library collection at a small liberal arts college. Two books are selected from each of three platforms: ebrary, EBSCO, and SpringerLink. The characteristics of each book are described, including design and readership, as well as 2 years of usage statistics from the specific library, and altmetrics where available. The paratextual study leads to a closer investigation of the usage statistics themselves and concludes that despite industry standards, they are not calculated consistently across vendor platforms and that while these data are invisible to ...


Creating Digital Knowledge: Library As Open Access Digital Publisher, D. Russell Bailey 2018 Providence College

Creating Digital Knowledge: Library As Open Access Digital Publisher, D. Russell Bailey

D. Russell Bailey

Since the mid-1990s, many higher education libraries have evolved from the traditional roles of primarily (1) research resource purchasers and providers and (2) research service providers into new, enhanced, and complementary digital age roles related to digital open access knowledge creation and digital publishing, creating digital resources for open education. This article presents a brief description of open access digital knowledge creation, the library publishing landscape (particularly in Digital Humanities/DH), as well as several model higher education library approaches and example initiatives in these areas. These models and initiatives are presented as broadly adaptable and scalable to many higher ...

Feeling Like A Fraud: Helping Students Renegotiate Their Academic Identities, Elizabeth Ramsey, Deana Brown 2018 Boise State University

Feeling Like A Fraud: Helping Students Renegotiate Their Academic Identities, Elizabeth Ramsey, Deana Brown

Deana Brown

A sense of belonging is an integral aspect of success in a long-term, group-oriented endeavor such as the pursuit of a college education. When students feel their presence at college is fraudulent, their achievements unfounded, or that they will be further disenfranchised if their true self is discovered, it is less likely that they will connect to the people and services who can help them achieve their educational goals. This “imposter syndrome” or “imposter phenomenon” can be addressed and turned around through a concerted effort. While that effort involves a personal journey, like any journey it is often aided and ...
