Nebraska Intellectual Freedom Manual, Round Table On Intellectual Freedom, Nebraska Library Association, Michael Elsener, Sue Ann Gardner, K. Joan Birnie, Karen Drevo, Brenda Ealey, Timothy Lentz, Todd Schlechte

Zea E-Books

Much has changed in libraries and society since the publication of the 2004 revision of the Nebraska Library Association Intellectual Freedom Manual. The consensus of the current members of the Nebraska Library Association round table on Intellectual Freedom (NLA IF) was not to just revise the former manual, but to create an entirely new edition. In doing so, the authors have addressed a number of new issues. The intention was to keep it relatively brief but still useful. Readers should be able to read sections independent of one another for quick reference on topics of interest. For readers of the ...

New Strategies For Aligning Libraries With Institutional Goals, Roger Weaver, Kathleen Spring, Maggie Trish 2016 Missouri University of Science and Technology

New Strategies For Aligning Libraries With Institutional Goals, Roger Weaver, Kathleen Spring, Maggie Trish

Roger Weaver

Aligning the library’s activities with larger institutional goals is key for library deans and directors. For many, integrating with larger campus priorities is a necessary step to strengthen the relevance of the library. Repository initiatives can play an important role here, at both large and small institutions. But how?

The libraries at Missouri University of Science and Technology and at Linfield College have provided support for many of the top-level strategic initiatives through innovative repository services, including student recruitment and retention, community engagement, and research and data support. In this presentation, Roger Weaver, Kathleen Spring, and Maggie Trish discuss ...

Research Impact Of Paywalled Versus Open Access Papers, Éric Archambault, Grégoire Côté, Brooke Struck, Matthieu Voorons 2016 Science-Metrix and 1science

Research Impact Of Paywalled Versus Open Access Papers, Éric Archambault, Grégoire Côté, Brooke Struck, Matthieu Voorons

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

This note presents data from the 1science OAIndx on the average of relative citations (ARC) for 3.3 million papers published from 2007 to 2009 and indexed in the Web of Science (WoS). These data show a decidedly large citation advantage for open access (OA) papers, despite them suffering from a lag in availability compared to paywalled papers.

There is an abundant literature on the citation advantage of OA papers, starting with a succinct communication by Lawrence (2001). Several studies have been listed by SPARC, the majority of which support the idea that when papers are openly available, they are ...

Librarians at the University of Central Florida created their Research Lifecycle (RLC) to illustrate the research process, highlight campus-wide support services, and identify unmet needs. This session will explore the development of the RLC model, provide an in-depth analysis of the graphic that was created, and explain how the RLC contributed to the developing Scholarly Communication model at UCF. The speakers will also review the steps taken to vet the RLC with faculty and other campus units and emphasize other outcomes such as building stronger relationships with key partners, as well as highlighting spinoff projects. A broad assessment will illustrate ...

Grow Your Own Academic Library Scholarly Communication Program, Barbara Tierney, Lee Dotson, Ven Basco, John Venecek, Sarah A. Norris

Lee Dotson

How does an academic library go about growing its own Scholarly Communication (SC) program with no budget, no staff, no dedicated office space, no partners, and no experience? The University of Central Florida Libraries responded to such a challenge during 2012-15 by creating a grassroots SC program staffed by a volunteer 20-member library faculty advisory group and creating an innovative “Research Lifecycle” model to help define an evolving menu of SC resources and services that could be turned on, as available, to UCF constituents.

Presentation for the Florida Library Association 2016 Annual Conference.

Starting, Publishing, And Sustaining An Online Journal: Beginner’S Workshop, Pat Maxwell, Anne Larrivee, Lisa Deluca

Digital Commons + Great Lakes User Group & NY IR Day

This interactive workshop will offer best practices to follow when creating, publishing, and sustaining an online journal. Although online journals share many characteristics, journals can vary based on how editors choose to set them up. As more libraries assist with this process, editors are coming to librarians with questions about how to start. This collaborative pairing leads to questions such as: How can librarians be involved in the publishing process, and to what capacity? Who will design the journal? How can the library promote these journals and encourage submissions? Learn from a team of librarians who will use their consulting ...
