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 ...

A Small Library Launches A Publishing Program, Janelle L. Wertzberger 2015 Gettysburg College

A Small Library Launches A Publishing Program, Janelle L. Wertzberger

Musselman Library Staff Publications

Panel title: Staffing a Library Publishing Program: The Whos, Hows, and Whens

Panel abstract: This session aims to address one of the most frequently raised concerns about library-led publishing: how to plan for staffing this new endeavor? The panel will discuss two inflection points in staff planning for library publishing: what it takes to get started (for a library that is just beginning to think about publishing), and what it takes to grow (for a library that has a few years of experience and wants to do more). It will also shed light on one of the least understood, and ...


Contributions To The Scholarly Record: Conferences & Symposia In The Repository, Jonathan Bull, Stephanie Davis-Kahl 2015 Valparaiso University

Contributions To The Scholarly Record: Conferences & Symposia In The Repository, Jonathan Bull, Stephanie Davis-Kahl

Library Faculty Presentations

Many academic libraries have found opportunities to showcase unique content through conference-hosting services, such as website-hosting and conference proceeding publishing. This poster describes two libraries’ successful efforts to archive conference materials from an undergraduate research conference and a professional conference for scholars.

Through the lens of these two case studies, the repository coordinators will discuss engaging with presenters on topics of author rights, ethical use of others’ work in their presentations, creating a sustainable infrastructure for continued growth of the conference, and collaborating with faculty.

Library As Publisher: Are You Ready To Support Your Community By Assisting In Content Creation?, Teresa A. Fishel, Jacki Betsworth 2015 Macalester College

Library As Publisher: Are You Ready To Support Your Community By Assisting In Content Creation?, Teresa A. Fishel, Jacki Betsworth

Teresa A. Fishel

A growing role for all types of libraries is to enable content creation by members of their community. One type of role is by “publishing” or distributing that work so that it is available for others. Whether publishing an electronic journal or book or supporting authors for traditional publishing, what is the role libraries could or should be taking? While many academic libraries now host student and faculty journals, what about monographs? Some academic libraries are now exploring how to support faculty interested in producing OA textbooks. A recent article in American Libraries (“Wanna write a good one? Library as ...


Data Information Literacy And Undergraduates: A Critical Competency, Yasmeen Shorish 2015 James Madison University

Data Information Literacy And Undergraduates: A Critical Competency, Yasmeen Shorish

Libraries

As a primer on data information literacy (DIL), this column will cover the background of the field and why it is relevant to college and university libraries serving undergraduate populations. This article includes how data information literacy relates to information literacy, competencies associated with DIL, the relevance of DIL to undergraduates, DIL in library instruction, and the reasons for library engagement with DIL. Examining DIL within the larger framework of information literacy can help outreach and instruction librarians engage with a format that may be unfamiliar to them but whose underlying foundation is well-established.

Better Sharing Through Licenses? Measuring The Influence Of Creative Commons Licenses On The Usage Of Open Access Monographs, Ronald Snijder 2015 OAPEN Foundation

Better Sharing Through Licenses? Measuring The Influence Of Creative Commons Licenses On The Usage Of Open Access Monographs, Ronald Snijder

Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication

INTRODUCTION Open Access and licenses are closely intertwined. Both Creative Commons (CC) and Open Access seek to restore the balance between the owners of creative works and prospective users. Apart from the legal issues around CC licenses, we could look at role of intermediaries whose work is enabled through CC licenses. Does licensing documents under Creative Commons increase access and reuse in a direct way, or is access and reuse amplified by intermediaries? OAPEN LIBRARY AND DOAB The OAPEN Library contains books available under both open licenses, for example Creative Commons, as well as books that are published under terms ...
