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

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

Steve Brantley

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 ...

Designing Job Descriptions For New Roles: Integrating Scholarly Communication And Information Literacy In Liaison Job Descriptions, Teresa Fishel, Julie Garrison, Philip Herold

Teresa A. Fishel

New roles for librarians, means new job descriptions. We will share the experiences of three institutions who have developed new job descriptions that incorporate responsibilities for integrating scholarly communication and information literacy. Librarians from three institutions that vary in size and type will report on how they have developed job descriptions and expectations for librarians in these areas and provide insights on issues for participants to consider before incorporating these changes in your own libraries. Learn about successful techniques as well as challenges faced when integrating these roles into responsibilities for academic librarians. Examples of job descriptions along with related ...


Initiating Data Management Instruction To Graduate Students At The University Of Houston Using The New England Collaborative Data Management Curriculum, Christie Peters, Porcia Vaughn 2015 University of Houston - Main

Initiating Data Management Instruction To Graduate Students At The University Of Houston Using The New England Collaborative Data Management Curriculum, Christie Peters, Porcia Vaughn

Journal of eScience Librarianship

The need for graduate instruction on data management best practices across disciplines is a theme that has emerged from two campus-wide data management needs assessments that have been conducted at the UH Libraries since 2010. Graduate students are assigned numerous data management responsibilities over the course of their academic careers, but rarely receive formal training in this area. To address this need, the UH Libraries offered a workshop entitled Research Data Management 101 in April, 2014, and all graduate and professional students on campus were invited to attend. The New England Collaborative Data Management Curriculum (NECDMC) served as the basis ...


Gaining Traction In Research Data Management Support: A Case Study, Donna L. O'Malley 2015 University of Vermont

Gaining Traction In Research Data Management Support: A Case Study, Donna L. O'Malley

Journal of eScience Librarianship

With the implementation of an institutional repository, librarians at the University of Vermont (UVM) began receiving inquiries about data management. In an effort to explore research data management roles for librarians at UVM the author led workshops based on Module One of the New England Collaborative Data Management Curriculum (NECDMC) with two audiences. In addition, the author consulted with faculty and staff from around the university to ascertain their support of research data management and integrate that information into the workshops. The first workshop was directed at UVM librarians and resulted in an understanding of their willingness to engage with ...


Stories And Statistics From Library-Led Publishing, Casey Busher, Irene Kamotsky 2015 bepress

Stories And Statistics From Library-Led Publishing, Casey Busher, Irene Kamotsky

Casey Busher

Library-led publishing is one of the new approaches to journal publishing and open access that has grown tremendously in the last few years. A 2010 MLIS-funded survey found that 55% of respondents—from U.S. academic libraries of all different types and sizes—were already implementing or developing a publishing program. Library-led publishing has garnered such momentum because, by offering low- or no-cost publishing to university scholars, it addresses needs that traditional publishing has not been able to meet. This article presents a series of small case studies to illustrate different journals that have benefited from the library-publishing model: a ...

Will Open Access Get Me Cited? An Analysis Of The Efficacy Of Open Access Publishing In Political Science, Amy Atchison, Jonathan Bull 2015 Valparaiso University

Will Open Access Get Me Cited? An Analysis Of The Efficacy Of Open Access Publishing In Political Science, Amy Atchison, Jonathan Bull

Jonathan Bull

The digital revolution has made it easier for Political Scientists to share and access high-quality research online. However, many of these articles are stored in proprietary databases that some institutions cannot afford. High-quality, peer reviewed, top-tier journal articles that have been made open access (freely available online) should theoretically be more easily accessed and cited than articles of similar quality that are only available to paying customers. Research into the efficacy of Open Access (OA) publishing has thus far focused mainly on the natural sciences, and the results have been mixed. Because OA has not been as widely adopted in ...

Copyright, Fair Use And The Digital Age In Academic Libraries: A Review Of The Literature, Amanda McCormick 2014 SUNY Buffalo

Copyright, Fair Use And The Digital Age In Academic Libraries: A Review Of The Literature, Amanda Mccormick

SLIS Student Research Journal

Copyright law in the United States has gained a certain notoriety for its complexity and ambiguity, which has only been compounded by the evolution (or, some would say, revolution) of print resources to electronic resources. The purpose of this literature review is to review the current understanding of copyright law within the context of academic libraries in universities and colleges. Additionally, this review will describe what issues academic librarians face in complying with copyright law in this new digital age while continuing to perform duties such as processing course reserve materials, developing an institutional repository, and maintaining a digital collection ...

An Analysis Of Data Management Plans In University Of Illinois National Science Foundation Grant Proposals, William H. Mischo, Mary C. Schlembach, Megan N. O'Donnell 2014 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

An Analysis Of Data Management Plans In University Of Illinois National Science Foundation Grant Proposals, William H. Mischo, Mary C. Schlembach, Megan N. O'Donnell

Journal of eScience Librarianship

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) Library conducted an analysis of 1,260 Data Management Plans (DMPs) submitted in National Science Foundation (NSF) proposals from July 2011 through November 2013. Each DMP was assigned controlled vocabulary and keyword terms which summarized the proposed data management mechanisms for storing and sharing data. A database composed of the proposal’s title, PI (Principal Investigator), PI’s department and college, NSF grant number, funded status, assigned DMP vocabulary, and keyword terms was constructed. As of May 2014, a total of 298 of these UIUC proposals had been funded by the NSF. Our ...

Library-Press Collaborations: A Study Taken On Behalf Of The University Of Arizona, Charlotte Roh

Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication

BACKGROUND The University of Arizona Press moved under the University of Arizona Library both physically and administratively a few years ago, echoing a trend amongst university presses: 20 AAUP members now are under the administration of university libraries. To understand the new evolving relationships in scholarly communication, a review of university press and library collaborations was undertaken by the University of Arizona Press and the University of Arizona Library through the Association of Research Libraries Career Enhancement Program (ARL CEP). LITERATURE REVIEW There has been much written throughout the years on both the acrimonious and collaborative relationships between university presses ...
