Library Collaboration – Exploring New Business Models: An Interview With Marvin Pollard, Marvin Pollard, J. Cory Tucker 2016 Digital Library Services at California State University

Library Collaboration – Exploring New Business Models: An Interview With Marvin Pollard, Marvin Pollard, J. Cory Tucker

Collaborative Librarianship

In the past few years, academic libraries have faced many significant challenges. Due to the financial crisis, the cuts to library collections have caused an evolution in the philosophy of collecting, accessing, and delivering information. Financial constraints have resulted considerations of a “just-in-time” collection philosophy, where libraries have explored new models of collecting information and delivering content to their patrons. Collaborative Librarianship caught up with Marvin Pollard to discuss this issue.


Improving The Effectiveness Of Librarian-Faculty Collaboration On Library Collection Development, Lan Shen 2016 Purdue University Calumet

Improving The Effectiveness Of Librarian-Faculty Collaboration On Library Collection Development, Lan Shen

Collaborative Librarianship

Librarian-faculty relations are essential to library collection development. This paper discusses, first of all, the reasons for the customary disconnect between librarians and faculty in light of their different priorities, visions, expertise, and status. In an attempt to bridge the librarian-faculty separation, a horizontal strategy is proposed focusing on financial collaborations between the library and other academic departments on campus, such as adopting the balanced budget, fair and rotated resource allocation, and prioritized investment through providing a General Reserve Fund. A vertical strategy is also proposed defined as an organizational and professional partnership through three different vertical levels, namely, the ...

Reading Materials And Reading Trends Of Youth Incarcerated In Mississippi’S State-Run Training School, Rodney M. Ashmore 2016 The University of Southern Mississippi

Reading Materials And Reading Trends Of Youth Incarcerated In Mississippi’S State-Run Training School, Rodney M. Ashmore

SLIS Connecting

While MS Code 43-21-321(5)(i) requires juvenile detention centers to make reading materials available to delinquents, it fails to define specifics about the types of reading materials to which youth are to have access. Likewise, while the Robertson and Dunaway (2006) report identified facilities that provided materials and levels of access, it fell short of providing specific information on the reading materials available in the juvenile detention centers because it was not within the scope of the report. Thus, there is no clear picture of what materials delinquents have access to or read when they are placed in a ...

Teen Tested: The State Of Ya Services In America's Public Libraries, James Pinkard

SLIS Connecting

The field of young adult services has been the recipient of much attention in library literature. However, current research on the status of young adult services is lacking, as noted by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA, 2011, Priority Area 1, para. 1). This research focuses on staffing, programming and collection development practices for young adults in selected U.S. public libraries. It will also seek to reveal whether a correlation exists between the presence of a young adult librarian and the state of a library's young adult services, as well as whether a correlation exists between the ...

In The Trenches: A Comparison Of Public Children’S Librarianship And School Librarianship, Lindsey Miller Beck

Public children’s librarianship and school librarianship share some sweet similarities. You’ll receive many hugs, have an incredible impact on the growing literacy development of small minds, and have as many books as you can read… children’s books are the best books, of course! Some of the main differences come into play when considering required education and subsequent pay, the structure of programming and scheduling, and the responsibilities and additional duties of both.
