Purposeful Metrics: Matching Institutional Repository Metrics To Purpose And Audience, 2016 Eastern Illinois University
Purposeful Metrics: Matching Institutional Repository Metrics To Purpose And Audience, Todd Bruns, Harrison W. Inefuku
Digital Repository Publications
A key tool to making institutional repositories work is the successful use of repository metrics. These metrics are generated through repository platforms and third party sources such as Google Analytics and Altmetrics, and are generated in-house by repository managers. The successful repository manager turns metrics into quality assessment tools, matching the metric source to the appropriate audience and purpose. Imaginative uses of metrics market the repository and stoke faculty participation. Providing meaningful metrics to repository stakeholders proves the value of institutional repositories to contributors and funding stakeholders. Purposeful metrics play a key role in establishing institutional repositories as an integral ...

Ensuring Ada Compliance For Library Databases, 2015 Western Kentucky University
Ensuring Ada Compliance For Library Databases, Shaden Melky, Laura Delancey
Kentucky Convergence Conference
Electronic library content must be accessible to students with disabilities, however many institutions have focused on accessibility of physical facilities without considering the requirements for online information. Western Kentucky University (WKU) developed a required, automated program to audit WKU Libraries’ electronic content including, the website and library database vendors. Additionally, WKU began requesting documentation of accessibility features in the form of a Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT). This presentation will focus on both our internal auditing efforts and the challenges of obtaining accurate vendor documentation.

Teaching Multimedia With Free Tools, 2015 Western Kentucky University
Teaching Multimedia With Free Tools, Jim Lindsey
Kentucky Convergence Conference
Students love doing hands-on work with multimedia – images, audio, video and Web sites. Unfortunately, software to do such work so can be costly and difficult to install. This hands-on presentation will show participants free tools for editing images, audio, video and Web site creation as well as how to incorporate them into their computer literacy courses. Most of the tools that will be shown are Web-based; students only need an Internet connection to use them. Since the session is short, hyperlinks to tutorial videos, sample assignments and grading rubrics will be made available to participants.
Combining Faculty, Instructional Design, And Library Services To Provide Students A Framework For Information Evaluation, 2015 University of Louisville
Combining Faculty, Instructional Design, And Library Services To Provide Students A Framework For Information Evaluation, Linda Leake, Samantha Mcclellan
Kentucky Convergence Conference
The creation of the course-embedded Critical Thinking & information Evaluation Module series resulted from the need for undergraduate students to start their academic careers with a framework for evaluating information. Pulling from the Paul-Elder Critical Thinking Framework and focusing abstract information literacy concepts on the commonly-used resources of Wikipedia, Google, and scholarly journal articles, the presenters will delve into module creation to implementation of these modules and discuss the logistics of this process to guide other faculty-librarian-instruction designer collaborations.

Preparing To Accept Research Data: Creating Guidelines For Librarians, 2015 Rutgers University - New Brunswick/Piscataway
Preparing To Accept Research Data: Creating Guidelines For Librarians, Laura B. Palumbo, Ron Jantz, Yu-Hung Lin, Aletia Morgan, Minglu Wang, Krista White, Ryan Womack, Yingting Zhang, Yini Zhu
Journal of eScience Librarianship
Rutgers University Libraries have recognized the need to expand their current research data services into a well-documented and well-supported service available to the Rutgers research community. In 2005, Rutgers University Libraries created RUcore, Rutgers University Community Repository, which has served as the University’s formal repository for institutional scholarship, special collections, and Electronic Theses & Dissertations. With the impetus of the 2010 NSF directive for research data sharing and preservation, RUcore development was extended to accept research data content. Ingest of pilot data projects began in 2010 via a librarian-mediated process.
In order to provide a better defined workflow and mission for research data services, in July 2014, the Rutgers University Librarian organized a Task Force to investigate the evaluation process for technical, legal, and confidential issues involved in research data acceptance, and to establish an administrative and evaluation framework for the deposit of research data. After a review of 35 repositories using 34 criteria, the Task Force drafted a plan for research data acceptance which proposes wide-spread acceptance of mediated data projects, and prepares for future self-deposit in an online interface. This paper will discuss the issues addressed by the Task Force; acknowledging ownership of data through an institutional data policy, preventing exposure of confidential or sensitive data, establishing a reconfigured data team, requirements for storage capacity and funding, creating a workflow which includes collaboration with research offices, and offering guidance for both researchers and librarians working with ...
Newton’S First Law And Etds: Scholarly Communication At A Liberal Arts University In Hong Kong, 2015 Hong Kong Baptist University
Newton’S First Law And Etds: Scholarly Communication At A Liberal Arts University In Hong Kong, Brian Minihan
Library Conference Paper
Open Access electronic theses and dissertations are more and more common in universities. This Increase in visibility of early scholarship has prompted re-examination of the traditional publication process from researchers, librarians and post-graduate students. A number of recent studies have shed significant light on if an open access ETD will impact post-graduate students’ ability to publish findings derived from a thesis with an academic publisher. However, these studies have largely focused on publishers, researchers and post-graduates’ attitudes in the United Kingdom and North America. Two years after implementing an Open Access policy for ETDs at a university in East Asia ...

Gathering The Needles Evaluating The Impact Of Gold Open Access Content With Traditional Subscription Journals, 2015 Portland State University
Gathering The Needles Evaluating The Impact Of Gold Open Access Content With Traditional Subscription Journals, Jill Emery, Alison Bobal
Investigating the use of gold open access content within subscription content has been a near impossible task until the adoption of the COUNTER 4 statistics in 2014. By reviewing the COUNTER JR1 GOA 2014 reports, two librarians evaluate the gold open access usage at their respective institutions from the following publishers: Elsevier, NPG, Sage, Springer, and Wiley. This initial investigation will be a benchmark for future studies to see if there is any impact on subscribed content or if usage is limited to non-subscribed content from these providers. Attendees will become familiar with the JR1 GOA reports from COUNTER as ...

Open-Access Policies: Basics And Impact On Content Recruitment, 2015 Clemson University
Open-Access Policies: Basics And Impact On Content Recruitment, Andrew Wesolek, Paul Royster
Faculty Publications, UNL Libraries
The allure of passing an institutional open-access (OA) policy as a strategy to populate an institutional repository is clear. After all, educating faculty to retain their rights to their scholarly publications through passage of such a policy, then requiring them to make those publications available through an IR seems a sure path to success. However, this approach of “if you pass it, they will comply” rings eerily similar to the early and decidedly misplaced optimism of populating institutional repositories through a “build it and they will come” proposition (Salo, 2007). The Registry of Open Access Repositories Mandatory Archiving Policies (ROARMAP ...
Letting The Data Lead The Way: Georgia Southern's Journey With Alternative Metrics, 2015 Georgia Southern University
Letting The Data Lead The Way: Georgia Southern's Journey With Alternative Metrics, Ashley D. Lowery
Library Faculty Presentations
The landscape around alternative metrics has been evolving rapidly. Going from a twitter hashtag in 2011 to a key component in research evaluation at many institutions, metrics that move beyond citation counts and journal impact factor are here to stay. Metrics can now be harvested and applied to research around usage, captures, mentions, and social media, in addition to citations, giving a much more comprehensive and holistic view of impact. These new metrics are also much more timely than citation metrics and can keep pace with new formats much faster than the entrenched, legacy practices. However, as institutions begin to ...
A Convoluted Web: Reusing Metadata To Highlight Faculty Scholarship,, 2015 Georgia Southern University
A Convoluted Web: Reusing Metadata To Highlight Faculty Scholarship,, Ashley D. Lowery
Library Faculty Presentations
What would happen if the same metadata creates multiple structures that focuses on highlighting faculty scholarship? At Georgia Southern University, the library staff reuses the same metadata to produce virtual bibliographies and bookshelves, faculty profiles, altmetrics, and an expertise search. Peer-reviewed publications initially are entered into departmental bibliographies and bookshelves in our institutional repository, Digital Commons@Georgia Southern. Only publications that faculty have published while at Georgia Southern are included. These citations are collected into university-wide bibliographies and bookshelves and SelectedWorks faculty profiles. The SelectedWorks faculty profiles also include peer-reviewed publications that faculty produced outside of Georgia Southern as well ...

Outreach To Campus Administrators On Open Access Initiatives, 2015 Cal State Monterey Bay
Outreach To Campus Administrators On Open Access Initiatives, Ryne Leuzinger, Jacqui Grallo
Open Access Conference
As librarians work to develop and support open access (OA) initiatives, it is essential that they communicate effectively with administrators, from the head of the library to the president or chancellor of their university. Librarians often find themselves at the nexus of OA initiatives and are well-positioned to bring together the interests of various units on campus and advocate for a given initiative to campus administration. In this presentation, which will be applicable to a broad range of higher education institutions, we will discuss effective practices and key takeaways from an open access initiative at CSUMB that focused on textbook ...
