Book Review: Open: The Philosophy And Practices That Are Revolutionizing Education And Science, Samuel Simas 2020 Bryant University

Book Review: Open: The Philosophy And Practices That Are Revolutionizing Education And Science, Samuel Simas

Library Staff Publications, Presentations & Journal Articles

In Open: The Philosophy and Practices that are Revolutionizing Education and Science—a volume of edited essays—the editors, Robert Biswas-Diener and Rajiv Jhangiani, situate the “open movement” and its many facets within the framework of education. They posit that openness and its associations with education, librarianship, and science suggest an important social justice imperative to support the world’s poor and underserved. Throughout this volume, short essays attest to, and present examples for, the critical and philosophical landscape that structures, benefits, and challenges the open movement.

An Assessment Of Global Research Activities On Children And Adolescent Online Security, Adeola O. Opesade Dr, Omolayo A. Adesina Ms.

Journal of Cybersecurity Education, Research and Practice

The use of the Internet among children and adolescents is now a norm in many parts of the world. As the Internet offers a wide range of benefits to these ones, so does it expose them to possible various risks and harm. Researchers in different countries across the world have engaged in the production of relevant research-based knowledge in order to make the virtual world a safe place for the younger ones. However, while studies have been carried out on the subject of Internet risk among children and adolescents, there is a dearth of information on the assessment of research ...

Supporting Students: Oer And Textbook Affordability Initiatives At A Mid-Sized University, Jennifer Pate

With support from the president and provost of the university, Collier Library adopted strategic purchasing initiatives, including database purchases to support specific courses as well as purchasing reserve copies of textbooks for high-enrollment, required classes.

A Multi-Institutional Model For Advancing Open Access Journals And Reclaiming The Scholarly Record, Christopher V. Hollister, Karen Bjork, Stewart Brower

Library Faculty Publications and Presentations

Numerous factors contributed to the development of the journal Communications in Information Literacy (CIL), which began publication in 2007. Countering the monopolistic and exclusionary practices of commercial journal publishers was a leading concern. The co-founders were motivated by the possibilities of what was then an awakening open research environment to create a truly open access journal, filling a gap in the literature, and helping the library field to commence with reclaiming control of its scholarly record. There were many challenges to this undertaking; among them was the lack of institutional capacity to host or support a library publishing initiative. Accordingly ...

Queens, Contracts, And Colonialism: A Brief Overview Of Copyright Law In History And Culture, Sarah Appedu 2020 Gettysburg College

Queens, Contracts, And Colonialism: A Brief Overview Of Copyright Law In History And Culture, Sarah Appedu

Musselman Library Staff Publications

The dominant retelling of the history of copyright, from the invention of the printing press through the modern day, provides context into the economic, political, and social factors that influenced copyright law's influence on American culture. This context helps undergraduate authors orient their scholarship within the larger scholarly communications system so that they can more easily understand the terms of their author agreements and how they fit into the larger culture around copyright. However, the traditional retelling of copyright's history neglects the ways in which copyright served to reinforce social inequalities-- most notably the fact that at the ...


What Collaboration Means To Us: Trust, Laughter, & Scholarly Productivity, Monica Rysavy, Russell Michalak 2020 Goldey-Beacom College

What Collaboration Means To Us: Trust, Laughter, & Scholarly Productivity, Monica Rysavy, Russell Michalak

Collaborative Librarianship

This essay examines how collaboration is key to a successful scholarly partnership over an extended period. We firmly believe successful collaboration only works by trusting your colleague. Part of the balancing act of working on major projects and publications is deciding who will take the lead or take on the majority of the work, while the other person takes on a more supportive role. We share three successful ongoing projects (our information literacy assessment program, onboarding program, and inventory of the book collection with Agile methodologies) that could not have been completed without each other's knowledge and skills.

The Efficient Team-Driven Quality Scholarship Model: A Process Evaluation Of Collaborative Research, Johanna Alexander, Andrea Anderson, Sandra Bozarth, Heather Cribbs, Kristine Holloway, Christopher Livingston, Terezita Overduin, Ying Zhong

Collaborative Librarianship

The Efficient Team-Driven Quality Scholarship (ETQS) Model is a research and writing system, providing strategies for librarians and other faculty to complete scholarly research within a set time frame. ETQS includes a team-driven, collaborative approach, predetermined timelines, built-in quality controls, and concurrent research processes. This paper evaluates the effectiveness of the ETQS Model to overcome common research obstacles and promote research success factors. Using the process evaluation method, the authors use the research and writing of this article to assess the ETQS Model. Team member reflections of the process are analyzed and ETQS strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT) are ...

Emotional Labor, Stressors, And Librarians Who Work With The Public, Kelsey Simon 2020 Valdosta State University

Emotional Labor, Stressors, And Librarians Who Work With The Public, Kelsey Simon

School of Information Student Research Journal

Service jobs require regular interaction with customers and have certain expectations of specific emotions that should be shown during transactions. This use of expected emotional displays during service transactions is called emotional labor and it is an important part of service work, but there are significant consequences for regular use. This paper reviews the literature on emotional labor, and the consequences of the repeated use of emotional labor within the service workforce. It also reviews the literature on stressors reported by librarians and job-related stress. Relationships can be seen between emotional labor, the work of librarian professionals, and stressors in ...
