Automagical Faculty Works, Helena Marvin, Zoe J. Scala 2017 University of Missouri - St Louis

Automagical Faculty Works, Helena Marvin, Zoe J. Scala

Digital Commons - Heartland User Group + IR Day

In this presentation, how the University of Missouri-St. Louis Institutional Repository Library is using a combination of Zotero, Google Apps and Sherpa Romeo to discover faculty works that can be shared, will be examined. Automagical is defined by dictionary.com as an adjective describing something that is "happening in a way that is hidden from or not understood by the user, and in that sense, apparently "magical." "The automagical aspects of this process will be explored, but not so deeply as to make them non-magical.

Case Study - A Call To Action: Migrating The Reveille To Digital Commons, Elizabeth Chance, Jennifer Sauer

Digital Commons - Heartland User Group + IR Day

Like many institutions, Forsyth Digital Collections presents their content on more than one platform. Since the acquisition of Digital Commons and the launch of the FHSU Scholars Repository in January 2016, there has been an institutional effort to determine which platform is best suited to displaying existing content. Beginning in 2009, the FHSU Reveille Yearbooks collection had been hosted in CONTENTdm. The user experience for this collection left much to be desired. In 2014 additional effort was put into improving the user experience in CONTENTdm for this collection. However, in the spring of 2017 it was determined that the Reveille ...

The session includes updates about (1) open education–related initiatives at UNL, including the UNL Libraries’ efforts to partner with other units on campus to increase awareness and integration of OERs in curricula; (2) selected copyright issues ...


The Evolution, Approval And Implementation Of The U.S. Geological Survey Science Data Lifecycle Model, John L. Faundeen, Vivian B. Hutchison 2017 U.S. Geological Survey

The Evolution, Approval And Implementation Of The U.S. Geological Survey Science Data Lifecycle Model, John L. Faundeen, Vivian B. Hutchison

Journal of eScience Librarianship

This paper details how the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Community for Data Integration (CDI) Data Management Working Group developed a Science Data Lifecycle Model, and the role the Model plays in shaping agency-wide policies and data management applications. Starting with an extensive literature review of existing data lifecycle models, representatives from various backgrounds in USGS attended a two-day meeting where the basic elements for the Science Data Lifecycle Model were determined. Refinements and reviews spanned two years, leading to finalization of the model and documentation in a formal agency publication1.

The Model serves as a critical framework for ...


How Automated Workflows Helped Us Ingest 600 Faculty Publications In Three Months In Lmu’S Institutional Repository!, Shilpa Rele, Jessea Young 2017 Loyola Marymount University

How Automated Workflows Helped Us Ingest 600 Faculty Publications In Three Months In Lmu’S Institutional Repository!, Shilpa Rele, Jessea Young

Shilpa Rele

Conducting copyright clearance and ingesting appropriate versions of faculty publications can be a labor intensive and time consuming process. At Loyola Marymount University (LMU), a medium-size, private institution, the Digital Library Program (DLP) began exploring and experimenting with automated processes to manage copyright clearance and ingest workflows with regards to faculty publications. The goal of such experimentation was to increase efficiency in our processes to ingest more faculty publications in LMU's institutional repository. This session will outline our workflows and tools used to manage the workflows, highlight some of the issues and challenges we experienced during this exploratory process ...


Journal Evaluation Tool, Shilpa Rele, Marie Kennedy, Nataly Blas 2017 Loyola Marymount University

Journal Evaluation Tool, Shilpa Rele, Marie Kennedy, Nataly Blas

Shilpa Rele

The changing mechanisms of scholarly publishing may make it difficult for you to determine where to publish the results of your research or creative works. In order to assist you in making the best decisions for your work, and to avoid journals that may not be credible, the William H. Hannon Library has developed a rubric for the evaluation of journals. Our focus during the development of this tool was specifically to address the concerns of our Loyola Marymount University faculty about Open Access journals, but this rubric may be applied more broadly to any kind of journal.

Shilpa Rele

Conducting copyright clearance and ingesting appropriate versions of faculty publications can be a labor intensive and time consuming process. At Loyola Marymount University (LMU), a medium-size, private institution, the Digital Library Program (DLP) had been conducting copyright clearance one publication at a time. This meant that it took an enormous amount of time from start to finish to review and process the list of publications on a given faculty member’s CV. In October 2016, the Digital Program Librarian learned about the automated workflow developed by librarians at University of North Texas and decided to give it a try. At ...

Working Class In The Library, Robert Schroeder 2017 Portland State University

Working Class In The Library, Robert Schroeder

OLA Quarterly

Portland State University is an urban, access university. This means that students don’t face nearly as many academic barriers, such as entrance exams, in order to attend PSU as opposed to other colleges. Nevertheless, students do encounter many hidden barriers that affect their chances of getting into, staying at, and graduating from PSU—barriers associated with race, gender, citizenship, abilities, and the topic of this article—socioeconomic status. We need to acknowledge that all of these characteristics intersect and play out differently, so it’s hard to look at just one of these characteristics at a time. “Working class ...

Critical Librarianship

OLA Quarterly

Libraries and archives are community spaces that acquire, organize, preserve, and make available resources for our patrons. Library workers connect people to these resources in various ways (technical services, reference, instruction, and more). It is noble and wonderful work, and it begs some interesting questions: is acquisition, organization, preservation, or dissemination a series of passive acts? Are libraries impartial spaces that give the real estate on their shelves to the words and ideas of others without judgment or context?

Libraries and archives are community spaces that acquire, organize, preserve, and make available resources for our patrons. Library workers connect people ...

Pursuing Best Performance In Research Data Management By Using The Capability Maturity Model And Rubrics, Jian Qin, Kevin Crowston, Arden Kirkland 2017 Syracuse University

Pursuing Best Performance In Research Data Management By Using The Capability Maturity Model And Rubrics, Jian Qin, Kevin Crowston, Arden Kirkland

Journal of eScience Librarianship

Objective: To support the assessment and improvement of research data management (RDM) practices to increase its reliability, this paper describes the development of a capability maturity model (CMM) for RDM. Improved RDM is now a critical need, but low awareness of – or lack of – data management is still common among research projects.

Methods: A CMM includes four key elements: key practices, key process areas, maturity levels, and generic processes. These elements were determined for RDM by a review and synthesis of the published literature on and best practices for RDM.

Results: The RDM CMM includes five chapters describing five key ...
