Scholarly Communication Coaching: Liaison Librarians' Shifting Roles, Todd Bruns, John Stephen Brantley, Kirstin Duffin 2015 Eastern Illinois University

Scholarly Communication Coaching: Liaison Librarians' Shifting Roles, Todd Bruns, John Stephen Brantley, Kirstin Duffin

Faculty Research & Creative Activity

Two and a half decades into the open access (OA) movement, rapid changes in scholarly communication are creating significant demands on scholars. Today’s scholars must wrestle with meeting funder mandates for providing public access to their research, managing and preserving raw data, establishing/publishing open access journals, understanding the difference between “green OA” and “gold OA,” navigating the complicated issues around copyright and intellectual property, avoiding potentially predatory publishers, adapting their tenure plans to OA, and discovering increasing amounts of OA resources for their research and their curricular materials. These demands present an opportunity and a need for librarians ...

Foundations For A Scholarly Communications Program: Interviewing Faculty At A Small Public Liberal Arts College, Bonnie J M Swoger, Sue Ann Brainard, Kimberly Davies Hoffman 2015 Milne Library, State University of New York College at Geneseo

Foundations For A Scholarly Communications Program: Interviewing Faculty At A Small Public Liberal Arts College, Bonnie J M Swoger, Sue Ann Brainard, Kimberly Davies Hoffman

Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication

INTRODUCTION Librarians at SUNY Geneseo, a small liberal arts college, conducted interviews with eighty-seven professors to learn about faculty attitudes and practices related to scholarly communications and open access. Our project can serve as a model for other small college libraries wishing to engage faculty in a discussion about scholarly communications while dealing with staff constraints and limited budgets. The interviews provided an excellent opportunity for outreach and education, and revealed faculty concerns about open access, digital scholarship, peer review, data storage and management, and co-publishing with students. DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT Interview results were shared with library staff as well ...

It Takes More Than A Mandate: Factors That Contribute To Increased Rates Of Article Deposit To An Institutional Repository, Hui Zhang, Michael Boock, Andrea A. Wirth 2015 Oregon State University

It Takes More Than A Mandate: Factors That Contribute To Increased Rates Of Article Deposit To An Institutional Repository, Hui Zhang, Michael Boock, Andrea A. Wirth

Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication

INTRODUCTION Many institutions have open access (OA) policies that require faculty members to deposit their articles in an institutional repository (IR). A clear motivation is that a policy will result in increased self-archiving. The purpose of this longitudinal study is to compare the impact of a campus-wide OA policy and mediated solicitation of author manuscripts, using quantitative analysis to determine the rate of article deposits over time. METHODS Metadata for faculty articles published by authors at Oregon State University between 2011 and 2014 was produced by integrating citation metadata from a bibliographic database and the IR. Author names, affiliations, and ...

Digital Commons @ Colby: Best Practices For Undergraduate Research, Susan W. Cole, Martin F. Kelly Iii

Faculty Scholarship

Colby College's contribution to the bepress sponsored webinar. From bepress' description:

Undergraduate research initiatives are cropping up at institutions across the country, highlighting the need for undergraduate publication venues. Colleges and universities are finding that publishing undergraduate work not only completes the research cycle for emerging scholars; it also showcases the quality of an institution’s student work to prospective students and their parents, as well as to prospective faculty members.

At Colby College, Suzi Cole, Scholarly Resources & Services, Sciences Librarian, and Martin Kelly, Assistant Director for Digital Collections, collaborate with the Environmental Studies program to publish the Colby ...

Developing A Data Management Plan For A Corporate Laboratory: Using A Case Study Method For Teaching, Eric M. Kuzma 2015 Simmons College

Developing A Data Management Plan For A Corporate Laboratory: Using A Case Study Method For Teaching, Eric M. Kuzma

University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium

This poster looks at the importance of developing a Data Management Plan (DMP) in the biological sciences. Grant applications increasingly require applicants to attach a DMP to their research proposals to outline the creation, storage, and dissemination of research data and information. One way to understand and assess a corporation's current DMP is to use the case study method, and this poster will walk through a DMP using this research method. This particular case study looks at the industrail scientific research process and how data is created, named, and stored, with attention to record keeping deficiencies and prospects. It ...


Facilitating Librarian Research On Data Literacy: The Institute For Research Design In Librarianship, Daina R. Bouquin 2015 Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University

Facilitating Librarian Research On Data Literacy: The Institute For Research Design In Librarianship, Daina R. Bouquin

University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium

Background: Librarians conduct research to better understand the communities they serve and to develop new services. For librarians in rapidly evolving dataintensive settings, research is especially crucial. However, librarians regularly encounter obstacles that stymie their abilities to complete necessary research projects. To address these barriers, librarian researchers at Loyola Marymount University developed The Institute for Research Design in Librarianship (IRDL).

Setting/Participants: In June 2014, a data librarian (D.B.) was accepted into the inaugural class of scholars attending the IRDL in Los Angeles, CA. During IRDL, scholars received training in research processes, including topics surrounding the formation of research ...


Virginia Data Management Bootcamp: A Collaborative Initiative In Data Education, Margaret E. Henderson 2015 Virginia Commonwealth University

Virginia Data Management Bootcamp: A Collaborative Initiative In Data Education, Margaret E. Henderson

University of Massachusetts and New England Area Librarian e-Science Symposium

Academic research libraries are quickly developing support for research data management, including both new services and infrastructures. In particular, libraries have actively engaged in providing data services through data training and workshops at their own institution and/or within inter-university collaborations. In this collaboration, two research university libraries in Virginia took the lead, and built partnerships, in designing and offering a bootcamp to educate early career researchers about issues and best practices in research data management. The first bootcamp in 2013 was held by University of Virginia and Virginia Tech. By 2015 there were five additional institutions: George Mason University ...
