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 ...

Fair Use Fundamentals, Association of Research Libraries, YIPPA 2015 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Fair Use Fundamentals, Association Of Research Libraries, Yippa

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

Copyright law is a carefully balanced system meant to encourage creativity as well as cultural and scientific progress. The law encourages authors by giving them limited control over certain uses of their works, and it encourages everyone (including authors) to use existing cultural and scientific material without permission, under certain circumstances, to engage in a wide variety of vital activities. Many parts of the law favor the freedom to use culture, but by far and away the most flexible, powerful, and universal user’s right is fair use. As you’ll see below: fair use is a right, fair use ...


From Social To Scholarly And Back Again, Jill Emery, Charlie Rapple 2015 Portland State University

From Social To Scholarly And Back Again, Jill Emery, Charlie Rapple

Jill Emery

Researchers are increasingly connecting and working together across institutional and global boundaries, thanks to networks like Academia.edua nd ResearchGate, and networked tools like Mendeley. As research itself (not just the resulting publications) begins to break free of traditional containers, what kinds of support can information professionals provide? How can we extend actions we are already taking in virtual reference and virtual help, and expand them into these venues? What challenges are we likely to encounter? What existing services might we be able to draw on to help researchers maximize the reach and impact of their work, wherever it takes ...

Rli 285: Research Library Issues: A Report From Arl, Cni, And Sparc 2015 -- Special Issue On Copyright, Prudence Adler, Brandon Butler, Jonathan Band, Krista Cox

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

In “Fair Use Rising: Full-Text Access and Repurposing in Recent Case Law,” Brandon Butler, practitioner-in-residence at the American University Washington College of Law, reviews six recent fair use decisions that cut across many socially important and beneficial purposes. He highlights the trend of courts finding in favor of allowing “the broad redistribution of unaltered, full-text documents for new purposes.” Butler explains how this trend presents new opportunities for research libraries to use and re-purpose the full text of copyrighted works in their collections.

Exploring the implications of one critically important case for research libraries, Jonathan Band, legal counsel to the ...

New Services To Enhance A Health Care Network's Reputation: Digital Commons At Lvhn, A Health Network Experience, Kristine A. Petre Mls, Cm, Ahip

Division of Education

Live for a little over two years, Lehigh Valley Health Network’s repository, LVHN Scholarly Works, has enhanced the Network’s reputation and research credibility by increasing the visibility of its scholarship.

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

New roles for librarians, means new job descriptions.

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 ...
