It Takes A Library: Growing A Robust Institutional Repository In Two Years, Todd A. Bruns, Stacey Knight-Davis, Ellen K. Corrigan, J. Steve Brantley 2014 Eastern Illinois University

It Takes A Library: Growing A Robust Institutional Repository In Two Years, Todd A. Bruns, Stacey Knight-Davis, Ellen K. Corrigan, J. Steve Brantley

Todd A. Bruns

In 2010, Booth Library began establishing an institutional repository, The Keep, an effort that involved multiple departments within the library. Potential content recruitment for the repository included large-scale digitization of archival materials and migration of previously created digital collections. Creation of the repository resulted in increased accessibility, better presentation of content that had existed on outmoded legacy web platforms, and the rescue of damaged content that had been disintegrating on other digital storage formats. By utilizing personnel across many departments and incorporating content from the Archives and Digital Collections areas, Booth Library has developed a robust institutional repository in only ...

A Bibliometric Analysis Of School Psychology International 2008-2013: What Is The Prevalence Of International Affairs In The Field Of School Psychology?, Kristen Paulsen, Katie Westermayer

Journal of Undergraduate Research at Minnesota State University, Mankato

In the current study, researchers conducted a bibliometric analysis on the topic of international school psychology in order to gauge how prominent international school psychology is in the world today, if there has been growth in the area, and if it is important for current researchers to begin more work in the field. This study updated and extended a previous bibliometric analysis conducted by Jennings, Ehrhardt, and Poling (2008). The following questions were used as the common interest questions to perform the extended bibliometric analysis: (1) which nations contributed articles to SPI? (2) how many SPI manuscripts involved multi-author (and ...

Assessing The Scholarly Communication Attitudes And Practices Of Faculty: Lessons From A "Failed" Survey, Kristin Laughtin-Dunker 2014 Pacific University Library

Assessing The Scholarly Communication Attitudes And Practices Of Faculty: Lessons From A "Failed" Survey, Kristin Laughtin-Dunker

Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication

INTRODUCTION This paper reports on a survey administered to faculty at Chapman University to assess their knowledge, attitudes, and practices with regard to scholarly communications, in order to help the new scholarly communications librarian plan appropriate library programs and services to meet faculty needs. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM The survey was adapted from the Institute on Scholarly Communications’ “Faculty Involvement in Scholarly Communications Opportunity Assessment Instrument” for a faculty audience in early fall 2013. It “failed” in that it faced long administrative delays and was met with a low response rate when finally published in December 2013. However, the responses received ...


Facilitating Faculty Participation: Providing The Repository Service Model Catalyst For Faculty Deposits With The Purdue E-Pubs Repository, David Scherer, Marcia Wilhelm-South 2014 Purdue University

Facilitating Faculty Participation: Providing The Repository Service Model Catalyst For Faculty Deposits With The Purdue E-Pubs Repository, David Scherer, Marcia Wilhelm-South

Libraries Faculty and Staff Presentations

As many institutions have begun participating in open access and creating institutional repositories it has become evident that some type of catalyst is necessary to initiate participation from the faculty. The mantra of “build it they will come” that some scholarly communication librarians and repository managers held has not carried over to faculty-initiated deposits to institutional repositories. Whether it was from a lack of knowledge, time, or energy, they hadn’t come; something was still missing from the repository service model holding faculty back from fully participating with their institutional repository. What faculty needed and wanted was a repository service ...

Baiting The Hook: Generating Faculty Interest And Excitement In Institutional Repositories, Harrison W. Inefuku

Digital Repository Conference Papers, Posters and Presentations

Many repository managers have lamented the lack of faculty interest and participation in institutional repositories.

Two years after its launch, the repository holds over 14,000 items, including publications and other works authored by over 200 contributing faculty members. / / This presentation describes outreach done by the Digital Repository Coordinator, which has consisted primarily of presentations to individual departments, research centers and other campus units. These presentations, uniquely tailored to ...

Digital Commons+ Great Lakes User Group Annual Meeting

As the scholarly communication landscape continues to evolve, demand for innovative publishing services and emerging models of dissemination is increasing.

How can we work toward the development of sustainable publishing services that will serve our campuses well into the future, and that will adapt with changing scholarly practices? / / At Grand Valley State University, our journal and open access textbook publishing has grown significantly in the past two ...

Saving Time In The Long-Run: A New Workflow For Thesis Submissions, Emily Stenberg 2014 Valparaiso University

Saving Time In The Long-Run: A New Workflow For Thesis Submissions, Emily Stenberg

Digital Commons+ Great Lakes User Group Annual Meeting

In January 2014, representatives from the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences and University Libraries at Washington University agreed to move the master's thesis submission process from a local, electronic form directly to the university's repository Open Scholarship, which is supported by Digital Commons. While the reasons for this change included streamlining the process for both students and administrators, making this decision ended up being the easiest part of the process, which took close to six months for repository staff to fully implement. Around the same time, the Graduate School of Art began requiring its master's students to ...

Ripple Effect: Etds, Workflows, And Policies One Year After "A Bigger Splash", Todd Bruns, Stacey Knight-Davis 2014 Eastern Illinois University

Ripple Effect: Etds, Workflows, And Policies One Year After "A Bigger Splash", Todd Bruns, Stacey Knight-Davis

Faculty Research & Creative Activity

Since 2008 EIU has been digitizing ETDs and making them available via the library catalog, I-Share (the state of IL consortia catalog), and WorldCat. It was only after ETDs were included in the institutional repository (The Keep) that the majority of faculty became fully aware of how accessible these theses had become. This dawning realization led to important conversations with faculty and other stakeholders about concerns regarding publishing, grant approval, and patents. Following these discussions new embargo policies and workflows were developed. In this presentation, we will provide statistics showing increased access to ETDs due to the repository, and describe ...
