How Automated Workflows Helped Us Ingest 600 Faculty Publications In Three Months In Lmu’S Institutional Repository!, Shilpa Rele, Jessea Young

LMU Librarian Publications & Presentations

Conducting copyright clearance and ingesting appropriate versions of faculty publications can be a labor intensive and time consuming process. At Loyola Marymount University (LMU), a medium-size, private institution, the Digital Library Program (DLP) had been conducting copyright clearance one publication at a time. This meant that it took an enormous amount of time from start to finish to review and process the list of publications on a given faculty member’s CV. In October 2016, the Digital Program Librarian learned about the automated workflow developed by librarians at University of North Texas and decided to give it a try. At ...

A book review of DYNAMIC RESEARCH SUPPORT FOR ACADEMIC LIBRARIES. Hoffman, Starr, (Ed.) London: Facet Publishing, 2016, xxi+154pp., $63.00, 978-1-78330-049-5.    
Dynamic Research Support for Academic Libraries is a refreshingly inclusive collection of essays with the ambitious goal of broadening our perspectives as academic public service librarians, so that we may better serve a wide range of research needs. For several years the professional literature in librarianship has been preparing us for a shift away from traditional roles and services. This is right and proper since indeed this shift has taken place in the profession and few (if any ...

Clickbait Science: A Review Of Rhetorical Patterns Within The Royal Society, Bryan T. Le 2017 Clackamas High School

Clickbait Science: A Review Of Rhetorical Patterns Within The Royal Society, Bryan T. Le

Young Historians Conference

King Charles II of England gave birth to the Royal Society and the right for it to publish without interference in the seventeenth century. Out of this society came forth Philosophical Transactions, the first ever science journal. The journal, however, was not strictly bound to science. Articles within the journal exhibit a variety of unusual bits of information ranging from making water colors to constructing a bee-house. This paper shows that the Royal Society included articles that weren’t science but human interest to gather a following for themselves.

Decoding And Negotiating Publisher Contracts: Know What You're Signing Away When You Publish, Sarah L. Wipperman

Penn Open Access Events

You wrote an article, and it was accepted to a journal. The publisher sends you a Copyright Transfer Agreement (CTA) or some other type of publishing agreement to sign, but what does that agreement actually say? What rights are you giving away, and what rights do you retain? Can you post your article to your website? Can you use it in the classroom? Can you send it to colleagues?

This workshop will:

  • look at a variety of CTAs across different disciplines
  • give you tools to understand general journal policies on when and how you can post articles
  • show you ways ...

Open Access On Campus: Bringing Nonprofits To The Libraries, Melanie Allen, Rachel Caldwell, Nick Guernsey, Ann R. Viera, Alan H. Wallace

Faculty: Other Publications and Presentations -- UT Libraries

Low attendance at Open Access Week events caused academic librarians to ask: What can we do to further open access without asking faculty and students to attend events during such a busy time of the semester? Instead of reaching out to faculty directly, librarians at the University of Tennessee Libraries are reaching out beyond the campus community. Health sciences, social sciences, and scholarly communication librarians offer a workshop to East Tennessee nonprofit organizations to assist them in finding and accessing scholarly research. After the workshops, participants are invited to be interviewed on camera about why public access to research matters ...
