Using The Ir Beyond Face Value, Jenny K. Oleen, Kim Marsicek 2017 Western Washington University

Using The Ir Beyond Face Value, Jenny K. Oleen, Kim Marsicek

Jenny K. Oleen

An institutional repository can be more than just a place to store theses or host faculty articles. An I.R. can also allow the library to collaborate with campus units to solve problems. By using a holistic approach to the I.R., libraries can go beyond the basics to support the communication needs of the university and local community. This presentation will illustrate how Western Libraries, at Western Washington University, used the implementation of Western CEDAR, Western’s institutional repository, to provide needed help in a variety of areas.

We will demonstrate how:

  • Conference pages can be used to solicited ...

Exploring A Hybrid Model To Develop The Ir: Liaisons And Functional Specialists Collaborate To Engage And Support Scholarship, Jane Costanza, Benjamin R. Harris 2017 Trinity University

Exploring A Hybrid Model To Develop The Ir: Liaisons And Functional Specialists Collaborate To Engage And Support Scholarship, Jane Costanza, Benjamin R. Harris

Jane Costanza

Smaller institutions may not have full-time dedicated positions to provide technical support and campus engagement for their IR, therefore alternative strategies to grow a program supporting institutional scholarship may be necessary. For example, at Trinity University we do not have a Scholarly Communication Librarian or a dedicated IR Manager, but instead, depend on the collaboration of liaisons and technical services staff to engage and support institutional scholarship.

At Trinity, our low librarian-to-faculty ratio means that we have strong liaison relationships with our academic departments. While librarians at Trinity locate and create opportunities to communicate with students and teachers about digital ...


Registering With Share, Talea Anderson 2017 Washington State University

Registering With Share, Talea Anderson

Northwest IR User Group

This lightning talk will describe recent activity surrounding SHARE—an open dataset supported by the Association of Research Libraries and the Center for Open Science. SHARE is working to aggregate metadata found in institutional and disciplinary repositories in order to improve discovery and access to scholarly research. This presentation will cover how to register a repository with SHARE, and will summarize projects recently undertaken as part of the SHARE Curation Associates program of 2016-2017.


The Dream Of Harvesting Is Alive In Portland: Harvesting Through Digital Commons, Ann Connolly 2017 bepress

The Dream Of Harvesting Is Alive In Portland: Harvesting Through Digital Commons, Ann Connolly

Northwest IR User Group

This summer bepress began its first foray into the world of harvesting content. We have access to more than 160 million objects from sources including PubMed, Elsevier’s ScienceDirect, Springer, IEEE, ArXiv, SSRN, RePEc, JSTOR, and many others. In early June we embarked on a pilot with several schools to harvest metadata for new faculty profiles within the Expert Gallery Suite, with plans to expand the scope of the feature over the coming year.

This talk will cover:

  • A demonstration of the harvesting feature
  • What we've learned from the pilot
  • Plans for release and future improvements


Easier Author Identification, Joe Cera 2017 Berkeley Law

Easier Author Identification, Joe Cera

Northwest IR User Group

This lightning talk would discuss our efforts to make it easier to identify authors and retrieve a full list of works in the repository. We rely on existing identifiers and standards resulting in no added costs and no new identifier systems. We are currently adding ISNI, VIAF, Library of Congress, and Institutional identifiers for each faculty member (where available). We have also added an indexed field in our Digital Commons instance to allow searching by those identifiers. The system can easily accommodate new identifiers and allows filtering that is not normally available in the Digital Commons search methods.


Integrating Docusign Into The Permissions Workflow, Amy D. Coughenour 2017 Concordia University - Portland

Integrating Docusign Into The Permissions Workflow, Amy D. Coughenour

Northwest IR User Group

This lightning talk will review the process of integrating the use of DocuSign for electronic signatures into the overall permissions workflow for institutional repositories. Subtopics include creating and using templates, routing to collection administrators and program managers, adjusting settings, prefilling forms, and processing the completed forms for the IR. Using an electronic process for permission forms saves time while increasing communication with creators and stakeholders.

The IR: What’s Copyright Got To Do With It?

SHERPA/RoMEO provides IR managers with publishers’ copyright information, making the deposit of faculty research articles fairly straightforward. But what about all the other materials we’re now putting in the IR? Things like:

  • Books and book chapters
  • ETDs that include others’ copyrighted materials
  • Undergraduate research
  • Conference posters and presentations
  • Archival materials
  • Oral histories
  • Digitized university collections

IR managers now need to understand the copyright issues surrounding a wide variety of materials and need to make well-reasoned decisions regarding their deposit into the IR. During this table talk, we’ll ...

The Ir, Web, And Marketing Departments: The Ultimate Triumvirate, Tina Ching 2017 Seattle University School of Law

The Ir, Web, And Marketing Departments: The Ultimate Triumvirate, Tina Ching

Northwest IR User Group

The IR is a great platform to complement the work of the web and marketing teams. In most institutions, however, instead of creating a natural alliance, these departments tend to conflict with competing priorities. What would happen if these three departments fell under one roof? This is the scenario at Seattle University School of Law where the IR, web, and marketing staff are a part of the small, but mighty Marketing & Communications team.

In this presentation, we will take a look at some of the ways an IR can be integrated into an institution's website while fulfilling the goals ...

Using A Needs Assessment To Develop An Institutional Repository, Teresa Auch Schultz 2017 University of Nevada, Reno

Using A Needs Assessment To Develop An Institutional Repository, Teresa Auch Schultz

Northwest IR User Group

Needs assessments can help librarians gain a better understanding of the scholarly communication practices and opinions of faculty within their communities, but they can also provide additional benefits. In the fall of 2016, two librarians at an R2 institution that had just started a scholarly communications program led a qualitative study of 18 faculty members at their institution in which liaison librarians conducted interviews with faculty in their departments. Although the main intent of the assessment was to better learn faculty views and opinions on scholarly communications-related issues such as open access, the librarians also used the study for several ...

From Pilot Project To Three Fte: Ubc's Decentralized Repository Staffing Model, Tara Stephens-Kyte 2017 University of British Columbia

From Pilot Project To Three Fte: Ubc's Decentralized Repository Staffing Model, Tara Stephens-Kyte

Northwest IR User Group

In 2011, cIRcle, the University of British Columbia’s open access digital repository, formally accepted a decentralized repository staffing model following a full day planning retreat with key Library stakeholders. Six years later staff has grown to include two FTE Digital Repository Librarians, one FTE support staff, as well as secured metadata review commitments from a Librarian and two cataloguers in Technical Services in addition to regular deposit support from student employees. With increased capacity has come robust and well-documented metadata standards that support interoperability; automated content ingest streams; improved permissions review support to meet growth in faculty requests; streamlined ...

Making & Sharing Scholarship: Copyright Issues In Scholarly Communication (2017 Nebraska Acrl Scholarly Communication Roadshow, University Of Nebraska-Lincoln), William M. Cross, Elizabeth A. Brown

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

Excerpts from the presenters' notes:

Today’s focus – not copyright generally, or copyright for things like library digitization, but copyright in the context of scholarly publishing.

Copyright’s purpose and higher education’s purpose have a lot in common. We as a society all benefit if people can build on the discoveries that came before them, while having an incentive to create new things.

Article I, Section 8, where the authority for US copyright law comes from, reads "To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to ...
