A Good Scam For Building Connections: Scholarly Communications Activity Mapping, Barbara C. Harvey, Ashley Rosener, Matt Ruen 2017 Grand Valley State University

A Good Scam For Building Connections: Scholarly Communications Activity Mapping, Barbara C. Harvey, Ashley Rosener, Matt Ruen

Matt Ruen

Are you looking for new ways to connect with faculty? Do you know how to best support faculty publishing? Grand Valley State University Libraries has developed a scholarly activity mapping template to document current scholarly and creative practices of faculty. The data gathered can be used to identify unmet faculty scholarly needs and reveal new opportunities to build relationships with faculty. Over the last several years, our liaison librarians have worked to closely integrate library instruction services into the curriculum of their liaison areas through the use of instruction plans. At the same time our research and publishing support expanded ...

Greater Than the Sum of Our Parts: Building Support for OER from Existing Services on Campus
Matt Ruen, Grand Valley State University Libraries

At Grand Valley State University, the Libraries and several campus partners--including campus IT and offices that support faculty research and effective teaching--have come together to provide support for the creation and adoption of Open Educational Resources (OER) on our campus. But rather than developing brand new programs or asking for additional resources right at the start, we realized that each of our units already offers services that could support faculty creating and using OER. Through our OER ...


Classification Methods In Context At Theological Libraries: A Case Study, Chloe G. Noland 2017 San Jose State University

Classification Methods In Context At Theological Libraries: A Case Study, Chloe G. Noland

SLIS Student Research Journal

This case study explores issues of interoperability and shared collection management between two libraries – one community and one academic – located within the American Jewish University (AJU). AJU’s choice to use two separate classification systems, Library of Congress and Elazar, respectively, provides a necessary separation of academic and religious context, but limits record access between the two collections. Specifically, this study aims to answer the following core research question: is consolidation into one classification scheme both a realistic and helpful solution for increased interoperability? Examining the history, patron needs, and principles of arrangement in both systems provided further insights regarding ...

Will That Surrogate Do?: Reflections On Material Manuscript Literacy In The Digital Environment From Islamic Manuscripts At The University Of Michigan Library, Evyn C. Kropf 2017 University of Pennsylvania

Will That Surrogate Do?: Reflections On Material Manuscript Literacy In The Digital Environment From Islamic Manuscripts At The University Of Michigan Library, Evyn C. Kropf

Manuscript Studies

The widespread dissemination of digital surrogates for Islamic manuscripts certainly has the potential to impact scholarship both positively and negatively. Realizing a positive impact is contingent on the accessibility and quality of the digital surrogates and the training extended to the scholars working with them. Indeed, while manuscript digital surrogates have the potential to enhance access for those scholars who might otherwise neglect manuscript evidence, they may also enable neglect of material qualities and with them the essential historical context for the content of a codex. This is particularly concerning for the field of Islamic manuscript studies for which so ...

Providing Access To Multimedia Collections In Digital Commons Institutional Repositories: Challenges, Opportunities, And Collaborations, Rachel Walton, Lee Dotson, Courtenay Mcleland

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2017

Multimedia collections bring inherent challenges to any project and institutional repositories are no different. However, these presenters have found that by partnering with content creators and experimenting with a range of media and features, they were able to create attractive and user-friendly multimedia collections in Digital Commons. In this panel, three digital preservation professionals from different colleges in the state of Florida will discuss the challenges, opportunities, and collaborations involved in creating specific multimedia collections within each of their respective Digital Commons repositories. In addition to talking about their individual case studies, these presenters will touch upon valuable media enhancement ...


Developing New Streams Of Undergraduate Submissions, Debra J. Rodensky, Kadie J. Mullins, Wesley Lewis 2017 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Developing New Streams Of Undergraduate Submissions, Debra J. Rodensky, Kadie J. Mullins, Wesley Lewis

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2017

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) has been successful in attracting faculty participation in Scholarly Commons, its institutional repository. Other than dissertations and theses, however, student submissions have been slow in coming, despite university priorities to support and disseminate undergraduate research. In early 2017, the scholarly communications staff at Hunt Library set out to change that picture. Energized by a Digital Commons webinar exploring approaches to highlighting undergraduate opportunities, they approached campus colleagues with a new venture – capturing the research experiences of students going abroad during the summer of 2017. The idea was enthusiastically embraced and within a short time, a partnership ...
