Rise Up: The Student Research Symposium Goes Online, Anne Shelley 2021 Illinois State University

Rise Up: The Student Research Symposium Goes Online, Anne Shelley

Faculty and Staff Publications – Milner Library

In Spring 2020, higher education institutions began implementing COVID-related precautions. While course delivery was most influenced by a variety of urgent decisions, also affected were events that were originally (and traditionally) scheduled to take place in-person that semester. While many events were cancelled outright, some were rescheduled or shifted online. At my institution, stakeholders decided to transition the popular annual student research symposium to an online event hosted by the institutional repository. This presentation will provide details of a successful collaboration between the library's institutional repository manager and symposium coordinators in the Graduate School. The presentation will cover workflows ...


Closing Keynote: Academy-Owned Non-Profit Open Access Publishing: An Approach To Achieve Participatory And Sustainable Scholarly Communications, Arianna Becerril García 2021 Redalyc

Closing Keynote: Academy-Owned Non-Profit Open Access Publishing: An Approach To Achieve Participatory And Sustainable Scholarly Communications, Arianna Becerril García

Digital Initiatives Symposium

The prevailing science communication system has showed little success in making science a global, participatory and equitable conversation. At the same time, a very robust ecosystem of science communication has been built in the Latin-American region, one that is intrinsically open, non-commercial and academy-owned. However, this “regional” approach has remained outside the legitimated channels of scholarly communication.

AmeliCA’s and Redalyc’s approach is based on the fact that scholarly communication in control of the academy is a strategy much healthier and sustainable for the development of science and society. Why is it that commercial publishers are a pivotal actor ...

Where Is The Social Democracy In Subscription Paywalls? Effects And Impact Of Transitioning Journals From Subscriptions To Open Access On Researchers In Developing And Transition Economies, Colleen Campbell, Rick Burke

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Nearly 20 years after the Budapest, Berlin and Bethesda Declarations on open access, the global academic community continues to struggle toward realizing its objective of an open information environment in which the world’s scholarly and scientific literature is freely available and at the service of society to accelerate research, enrich education and lay the foundation for a common, global intellectual exchange. Championing the cause, stakeholders in some geographic contexts have succeeded in delivering open access publishing options for their research outputs by fostering highly-regarded, locally-developed journals, platforms and repositories, yet a an enormous portion of the world’s scholarly ...


Maintaining Your Identity: Supporting Our Own Faculty's Publishing While Participating In A Funded Consortia Publishing Program, Jennifer Coronado 2021 Butler University

Maintaining Your Identity: Supporting Our Own Faculty's Publishing While Participating In A Funded Consortia Publishing Program, Jennifer Coronado

Digital Initiatives Symposium

In May 2019, the Private Academic Library Network of Indiana was awarded a $525,000 grant from Lilly Endowment to improve student success and retention by supporting the use of open course materials across the 24 private institutional members. Since then, the PALSave administration team has reached over 100 faculty members across Indiana, created an adoption pilot program, and received over 40 faculty reviews for the Open Textbook Library. Now, PALSave is developing a publishing program, with full funding for five textbook creations over five years. The Butler University Libraries’ Scholarly Communication Team conducted a Digital Needs Assessment Survey and ...

Mapping Renewal: How An Unexpected Interdisciplinary Collaboration Transformed A Digital Humanities Project, Elise Tanner, Geoffrey Joseph

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Funded by a National Endowment for Humanities (NEH) Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Foundations Grant, the UA Little Rock Center for Arkansas History and Culture’s “Mapping Renewal” pilot project focused on creating access to and providing spatial context to archival materials related to racial segregation and urban renewal in the city of Little Rock, Arkansas, from 1954-1989. An unplanned interdisciplinary collaboration with the UA Little Rock Arkansas Economic Development Institute (AEDI) has proven to be an invaluable partnership.

Featured Speaker: Facilitating Oa Transformation Through Publisher Engagement: The Uc Experience, Ivy Anderson 2021 California Digital Library

Featured Speaker: Facilitating Oa Transformation Through Publisher Engagement: The Uc Experience, Ivy Anderson

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Libraries across the globe have been pursuing open access for decades, but until recently, progress has continued to be painfully slow. Transformative open access agreements with publishers have begun to change this, as institutions in Europe and increasingly in the US as well are now negotiating open access agreements with major publishers. By transitioning major journal license expenditures from ‘read access’ to support open access publishing, we can begin to achieve open access at scale, supporting our authors in all of the journals in which they choose to publish. This talk will discuss UC’s experience in negotiating transformative open ...


Beprexit To Nowhere: The Institutional Repository Platform Landscape From The Perspective Of Small-To-Mid Sized Private Institutions, Shannon Kealey, Jennifer Beamer 2021 UC Berkeley

Beprexit To Nowhere: The Institutional Repository Platform Landscape From The Perspective Of Small-To-Mid Sized Private Institutions, Shannon Kealey, Jennifer Beamer

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Is your institution planning or hoping to plan a beprexit? If so, you are not alone. Many colleges and universities are seeking alternatives to Digital Commons since the August 2017 acquisition of bepress by Elsevier. The Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium (SCELC) Institutional Repository (IR) Subcommittee formed in late 2017 to perform an environmental scan of current and emerging institutional repository platforms and the ways in which they meet the needs and match the values of SCELC member institutions, the majority of which are small to midsize private colleges and universities that do not have the staff or infrastructure to ...

Library Publishing Curriculum

In the original, modular curriculum (2018) on which this textbook is based, each unit of the Library Publishing Curriculum contained an instructor’s guide, narrative, a slideshow with talking notes, bibliographies, supplemental material, and activities for use in a physical or virtual classroom for workshops and courses. This textbook version, produced in 2021, adapts the original narrative as the primary content (with very little additional editing) and incorporates the bibliographies, appendices, and images from the slideshow into a linear reading and learning experience for use by librarians or students learning on their own or as part of a classroom learning ...

375— Accommodating Changing Times: Proceedings Of Great Day Student Editor Internship - Virtual Vs. In-Person, Jaime Devita, Ethan Owens

GREAT Day

With the prevalence of COVID-19 and the limitations it has posed on education, we seek to compare and contrast how the Proceedings of GREAT Day internship has both changed and stayed the same. Can the goals be met with a virtual way of doing things, or has educational rules set forth due to COVID-19 greatly affected the internship? With a notable change in how our goals are achieved, we seek to call upon any major obstacles set forth and which ways we can improve for the future.

No Publication Favelas! Latin America's Vision For Open Access, Monica Berger 2021 CUNY New York City College of Technology

No Publication Favelas! Latin America's Vision For Open Access, Monica Berger

Publications and Research

Open access was intended to be the great equalizer but its promise has not come to fruition in many lower-income countries of the Global South. Under-resourcing is only one of the many reasons why these scholars and publishers are marginalized. In order to examine inequality in our global scholarly communications system, we can compare a negative and a positive outgrowth of this imbalance. Predatory publishing represents a a weak imitation of traditional, commercial journal publishing. In contrast, Latin America’s community-based, quality scholarly infrastructure is anti-colonial. It can be argued that Latin America’s publishing infrastructure represents one solution to ...

Student Textbook Surveys: An Important Component Of A Library Oer Initiative, Janelle Wertzberger, Amanda Langdon, Andrea Hartranft, Mary Elmquist

All Musselman Library Staff Works

A student textbook survey is a potentially powerful tool in the OER advocate’s toolkit. This moderated panel features librarians working within smaller settings and includes representatives from a small, private, liberal arts college, a small public Hispanic-serving institution, and a community college. Panelists will discuss survey goals, research design considerations, approaches to data analysis, and strategies for sharing results. Participants will gain concrete ideas about whether and how a student textbook survey could advance their local OER initiatives, as well as practical tips for how to move ahead with such a project.

Citizen Web Archiving: Empowering Undergraduates To Preserve The Internet, Kayla Harris, Stephanie Shreffler, Christina A. Beis

Marian Library Faculty Presentations

Increasingly, information that was once available in print is now available only online. There are many efforts by librarians to teach students how to evaluate sources, but in order to do that, the sources need to still exist. While librarians and archivists preserve information from the Internet through web archive collections, undergraduate students of this generation may not have considered that things on the Internet do not necessarily remain there forever, and that preservation requires a proactive approach. Through a co-curricular learning experience, a team of librarians and archivists created a self-guided, asynchronous program, Citizen Web Archiving: Preserving Websites for ...
