The Public Knowledge Project (PKP) is entering its third decade. Like any project that has been around this long, PKP is facing the substantial responsibilities of maturity, seeking ways that will enable it to best serve the thousands of people who utilize our software to operate and index the journals and presses with which they work. It is out of this sense of responsibility that PKP, in the fall of 2017, submitted a proposal to the Laura and John Arnold Foundation boldly entitled “Sustaining Open Access’ Most Widely Used Publishing Software.” With this planning grant, PKP contracted the consulting services ...

Share Or Embargo? Considerations For Graduate Students, Melody Herr 2018 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Share Or Embargo? Considerations For Graduate Students, Melody Herr

Melody Herr

Should your graduate students place their theses or dissertations under
embargo? While recognizing differences across disciplines, the U of A
Graduate School requires students to submit their theses and dissertations to
ProQuest and the University Libraries, then makes them available in the
digital repository ScholarWorks@UARK, where they are directly accessible to
anyone, anywhere with an internet connection, unless they are under
embargo. (For an explanation of the ProQuest publishing settings and how
they translate into levels of accessibility in ScholarWorks@UARK, see these
guidelines.)

Community Needs-Based Planning For Rural Library Success, Jeremy Skinner 2018 Curry Public Library

Community Needs-Based Planning For Rural Library Success, Jeremy Skinner

OLA Quarterly

I am a librarian from rural southern Oregon, and my community is a stereotype. NPR correspondent Jeff Brady visited our town during the summer of 2017 for a story highlighting rural communities in decline (Brady, 2017). We were a convenient case study. Our natural resource industry has been dying a slow and loud death for decades, our voters have notoriously voted down numerous tax levies, and Jeff Brady just happened to grow up here. Brady being a national business correspondent from Philadelphia, we were the perfect stereotype for a piece that closed with his grim statement: “Overall, the economic prospects ...


Stories Of Southern Oregon = Communities + Libraries + Museums + University, Maureen F. Battistella, Charlene Prinsen, Thalia Truesdell 2018 Southern Oregon University

Stories Of Southern Oregon = Communities + Libraries + Museums + University, Maureen F. Battistella, Charlene Prinsen, Thalia Truesdell

OLA Quarterly

Collaborations often have the best outcomes because conversations among those with diverse experiences, varied institutional affiliations, and cross-discipline training bring breadth and depth of perspective. The Stories of Southern Oregon project was a good example of how libraries, museums, and academics can work together to surface important historical content, build community, and strengthen relationships. Thanks to a 2017 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Common Heritage program, Southern Oregon University faculty partnered with the Eagle Point and Ruch branches of the Jackson County Library District and local museums to collect stories and images of heritage work-life like logging ...

Volume 23 Issue 3 Introduction, Buzzy Nielsen

OLA Quarterly

The Oregon library community consistently amazes me with its innovative, enterprising, and patron-focused activities. Indeed, we hear about these many activities through Libs-Or, OLA conferences, and this journal. While certainly not by design, many of the voices we hear come from libraries along the I-5 corridor. Cool things happen in those libraries, of course, but this issue of the OLA Quarterly amplifies voices we hear less frequently: the rural institutions that constitute the majority of the libraries in Oregon.

I have spent most of my career working in small and rural libraries. My first library job was at my hometown ...


Oregon’S County Law Libraries: Providing Legal Information And Reference Assistance Across The Miles, Sue Ludington 2018 Washington County Law Library

Oregon’S County Law Libraries: Providing Legal Information And Reference Assistance Across The Miles, Sue Ludington

OLA Quarterly

In Oregon, all 36 counties are statutorily required to “operate a free law library that is convenient and available at reasonable hours; or provide free law library services at one or more locations that are convenient and available at reasonable hours” (Or. Rev. Stat. § 9.815). County law libraries have been around for more than a century in Oregon; however, what those libraries look like today and the depth of services or resources they offer vary dramatically statewide. In rural and small counties, especially, there may be limited (or nonexistent) resources, physical space, and staffing. Despite the challenges, many counties ...

Sharing For The Greater Good: A High School And Community College Partnership To Cultivate Information Literacy In A Rural Community, Jacquelyn Ray, Delia Fields

OLA Quarterly

“Mind the gap” is a phrase heard umpteen times when riding the London Underground subway system. That same advice was heeded in eastern Oregon, where it prompted an Information Literacy (IL) collaboration project between a high school and a community college librarian who forged a “dynamic duo” in an attempt to bridge noticeable gaps in the information literacy skills of their students.

Students in both high school and college struggle with aspects of information literacy. These knowledge and habit “gaps” are wide ranging—from initial question asking, to entering the scholarly conversation and finding their voice, to evaluating the myriad ...


Agriculture And Art Meet At The Library, Brian Vegter 2018 Libraries of Eastern Oregon

Agriculture And Art Meet At The Library, Brian Vegter

OLA Quarterly

In July 2015, I was approached by Perry Stokes, Director of Baker County Library District and President of Libraries of Eastern Oregon (LEO), about an arts program that was being funded through ArtPlace America. If you didn’t know, LEO is the nation’s largest geographic library consortium, and we seek to enhance civic engagement, social capital, and the personal development of individuals. Fifteen counties and more than 50 public libraries in Oregon make up LEO, from Hood River to Ontario, Baker City to Lakeview, and just about everywhere in between, with a few exceptions in Central Oregon. The idea ...


Ready2learn Five Years Later, Jennifer Costley 2018 Pendleton Public Library

Ready2learn Five Years Later, Jennifer Costley

OLA Quarterly

In July of 2013, the first Ready2Learn library card was issued in Eastern Oregon. At the time, Project Ready2Learn had the support of the Library Services and Technology Act, Governor Kitzhaber, Oregon College Savings Plan (OCSP), Greater Oregon Behavioral Health Inc. (GOBHI) and a committed team of librarians ready to prove that frequent library use is directly connected to success in school. Fast forward to today and what you have left is GOBHI, the librarians, and some pretty compelling evidence that what we are doing is working.

On paper, the purpose of Ready2Learn was to increase kindergarten readiness. However, the ...

The Alvin M. And Betty Josephy Library Of Western History And Culture, Rich Wandschneider

OLA Quarterly

Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce died in exile on the Colville Indian Reservation in Washington State in 1904, after being rebuffed on two trips to Wallowa County, Oregon, to convince the local citizenry to allow him to buy land. He asked to be allowed to live out his days in the “land of winding waters” that held the bones of his father and his people. Denied, he lived out his days on the Colville, befriended by University of Washington professor Edmond Meany, and famously photographed by Meany’s friend, Edward Sheriff Curtis. A few short years after that Wallowa ...
