This is a case study of the implementation of an institutional repository (IR). It is written for academic librarians who are looking for a primer on how to create an IR for their campus. Based upon Marshall University’s research and experience with this process, we present the essential elements needed to construct an institutional repository. Policies and procedures are provided that offer guidelines and checklists to follow for a successful ramp up and launch. A discussion about the value of an IR is followed by ways to secure funding and to implement a basic system that can be scaled ...

Over the past few years, an increasing number of academic libraries have been adding or supplementing research data management support and services to their offerings. In an effort to support different stakeholders (e.g. students, library faculty and librarians, and disciplinary faculty), Purdue Libraries faculty and staff have developed several different tools and resources specifically designed for librarians and liaisons in supporting research data management. These resources and tools have been developed through innovative partnerships and include the Data Information Literacy (DIL) Project, a partnership between faculty and librarians across multiple institutions; the Purdue University Research Repository (PURR), created through ...

“Performing Archive”: Identity, Participation, And Responsibility In The Ethnic Archive, David J. Kim, Jacqueline Wernimont 2014 University of California - Los Angeles

“Performing Archive”: Identity, Participation, And Responsibility In The Ethnic Archive, David J. Kim, Jacqueline Wernimont

Scripps Faculty Publications and Research

This essay is an effort to reflect on the theoretical underpinnings and implications of both our three-month process and its product. In particular, we would like to consider how our digital book both publishes an archive and allows authors and readers to “perform archive” or enact “liveness” with the materials therein. We also want to use this as an occasion to raise questions regarding the liberal discourse of digital access that seems at times to overshadow opportunities for critical intervention at this moment of digital-archive fever. In particular, we want to bring the insights of critical race and ethnic studies ...

Research Data Management At Carnegie Mellon University, Steven I. Van Tuyl 2014 Carnegie Mellon University

Research Data Management At Carnegie Mellon University, Steven I. Van Tuyl

University Libraries Scholarship

The Office of Science and Technology Policy memo of February 22, 2013, was a watershed moment in open scholarship - effectively extending the policy of open scholarship set forth by the National Institutes of Health to all major federal funding agencies. While the potential for such a sweeping mandate has been on the radar of many university libraries and research administrators, the reality of the OSTP memo has left many institutions scrambling to understand the implications for their digital infrastructures for curation of data and publications. The presenter will discuss the processes by which Carnegie Mellon University is preparing to respond ...

What Do Students Learn From Participation In An Undergraduate Research Journal? Results Of An Assessment, Sharon A. Weiner, Charles Watkinson 2014 Purdue University

What Do Students Learn From Participation In An Undergraduate Research Journal? Results Of An Assessment, Sharon A. Weiner, Charles Watkinson

Libraries Faculty and Staff Scholarship and Research

INTRODUCTION Undergraduate research journals provide students with an opportunity to disseminate their work while learning about the scholarly publishing process. The opportunities to learn about scholarly communication have been demonstrated, but such journals also offer a means of helping students attain necessary information literacy competencies. By partnering in the publication of undergraduate journals, libraries can further strategic goals related to information literacy and establish a connection between library publishing and student success. This paper reports on an assessment of the Journal of Purdue Undergraduate Research (JPUR) that was designed to evaluate student learning outcomes and demonstrate connections between journal participation ...

A Dead Link Or A Final Resting Place: Link Rot In Legal Citations, Nick Szydlowski

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

A webpage’s URL is often referred to as its address, but frequently it is more like a short-term sublet than a permanent home. This article discusses the problem of link rot in legal citations and advocates for law reviews to adopt DOIs and Perma as complementary solutions.


Cultivating Scholarship: The Role Of Institutional Repositories In Health Sciences Libraries, Lisa A. Palmer 2014 University of Massachusetts Medical School

Cultivating Scholarship: The Role Of Institutional Repositories In Health Sciences Libraries, Lisa A. Palmer

Library Publications and Presentations

The early promise of institutional repositories is beginning to bear fruit. Medical libraries with institutional repositories, like other academic libraries, have found that their repositories support new ways of engaging with researchers and meeting the challenges posed by the transformation in scholarly communication over the past decade exemplified by open access, the National Institutes of Health Public Access Policy, campus-based publishing, and the sharing of research data. Institutional repositories can grow and thrive in academic health sciences libraries and be a vital component in the provision of library services to faculty, researchers, staff, and students.

The Nsf/Nih Effect: Surveying The Effect Of Data Management Requirements On Faculty, Sponsored Programs, And Institutional Repositories, Anne Diekema, Andrew Wesolek, Cheryl Walters

Andrew Wesolek

The scholarly communication landscape is rapidly changing and nowhere is this more evident than in the field of data management. Mandates by major funding agencies, further expanded by executive order and pending legislation in 2013, require many research grant applicants to provide data management plans for preserving and making their research data openly available. However, do faculty researchers have the requisite skill sets and are their institutions providing the necessary infrastructure to comply with these mandates? To answer these questions, three groups were surveyed in 2012: research and teaching faculty, sponsored programs office staff, and institutional repository librarians. Survey results ...

Scholarly Communication Coaches, J. Brantley, Todd Bruns

Faculty Research & Creative Activity

The Open Access (OA) movement’s impact on scholarly communication has reached a tipping point. Increasingly, legal requirements such as the Illinois Open Access law (Public Act 098-0925) mandate open access to state funded research, and funding agencies are obliging researchers to preserve data in accessible platforms. In addition, publisher-driven “gold OA” and free-access “green OA” require researchers to navigate complicated options for copyright control. Meanwhile, new OA “scholars networks” offer possibilities for collaboration of which scholars may be unaware. These growing trends have ramifications across many disciplines and they create a need that librarians can fill. Subject librarians trained ...
