New Strategies For Aligning Libraries With Institutional Goals, Roger Weaver, Kathleen Spring, Maggie Trish 2016 Missouri University of Science and Technology

New Strategies For Aligning Libraries With Institutional Goals, Roger Weaver, Kathleen Spring, Maggie Trish

Kathleen Spring

Aligning the library’s activities with larger institutional goals is key for library deans and directors. For many, integrating with larger campus priorities is a necessary step to strengthen the relevance of the library. Repository initiatives can play an important role here, at both large and small institutions. But how?

The libraries at Missouri University of Science and Technology and at Linfield College have provided support for many of the top-level strategic initiatives through innovative repository services, including student recruitment and retention, community engagement, and research and data support. In this presentation, Roger Weaver, Kathleen Spring, and Maggie Trish discuss ...

Starting, Publishing, And Sustaining An Online Journal: Beginner’S Workshop, Pat Maxwell, Anne Larrivee, Lisa Deluca

Digital Commons + Great Lakes User Group & NY IR Day

This interactive workshop will offer best practices to follow when creating, publishing, and sustaining an online journal. Although online journals share many characteristics, journals can vary based on how editors choose to set them up. As more libraries assist with this process, editors are coming to librarians with questions about how to start. This collaborative pairing leads to questions such as: How can librarians be involved in the publishing process, and to what capacity? Who will design the journal? How can the library promote these journals and encourage submissions? Learn from a team of librarians who will use their consulting ...


An Olympic Ode To Cataloging, Maureen E. Schlangen 2016 University of Dayton

An Olympic Ode To Cataloging, Maureen E. Schlangen

Maureen E. Schlangen

When my colleagues in the University Libraries gathered on the west portico of Roesch Library June 9 for our own version of the Olympics, our competitive nature, mostly dormant in our daily work, emerged in events that put our teams to the test both physically and mentally: journal Jenga, journal toss, cart racing, book balancing, speed sorting and the hardest scavenger hunt I’ve ever participated in.

But like many things I’ve discovered in my two years in the Libraries, the information science that inspired these trivial games is anything but trivial.

As I raced to put a cart ...

Discovery And Reuse Of Open Datasets: An Exploratory Study, Sara Mannheimer, Leila Belle Sterman, Susan Borda 2016 Montana State University-Bozeman

Discovery And Reuse Of Open Datasets: An Exploratory Study, Sara Mannheimer, Leila Belle Sterman, Susan Borda

Journal of eScience Librarianship

Objective: This article analyzes twenty cited or downloaded datasets and the repositories that house them, in order to produce insights that can be used by academic libraries to encourage discovery and reuse of research data in institutional repositories.

Methods: Using Thomson Reuters’ Data Citation Index and repository download statistics, we identified twenty cited/downloaded datasets. We documented the characteristics of the cited/downloaded datasets and their corresponding repositories in a self-designed rubric. The rubric includes six major categories: basic information; funding agency and journal information; linking and sharing; factors to encourage reuse; repository characteristics; and data description.

Results: Our small-scale ...

Volume 22 Issue 1 Introduction, Turner Masland

OLA Quarterly

Libraries are continuing to change at a rapid pace, transforming from quiet repositories into vibrant locations for knowledge and information gathering and exchange. Books are being moved to storage facilities to make room for more collaborative learning spaces. Technology demands are rising. Makerspaces are becoming essential library services. While these changes are both scary and exciting, they are also necessary for libraries to remain true to their core mission: serving our communities and their information needs while respecting their rights to privacy and intellectual freedom. While everything in our industry feels like it is changing rapidly, it also remains the ...

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

Open access, open data, open source, and other open scholarship practices are growing in popularity and necessity. However, widespread adoption of these practices has not yet been achieved. One reason is that researchers are uncertain about how sharing their work will affect their careers. We review literature demonstrating that open research is associated with increases in citations, media attention, potential collaborators, job opportunities, and funding opportunities. These findings are evidence that open research practices bring significant benefits to researchers relative to more traditional closed practices.

Volume 21 Issue 4 Introduction, Joan Petit

Joan Petit

Oregon libraries provide an incredible array of resources and services, but sometimes we struggle to educate our users and each other about all that is available. Over the past several years, many libraries have become more intentional in our efforts to market and promote our offerings, through traditional PR and advertisements as well as newer approaches like social media. However, we may lack the formal training and expertise to do this well—marketing is not a class offered in all library school programs—and, even with appropriate training, we may lack the budget and staff to implement a large-scale marketing ...


Open Access Metadata For Journals In Directory Of Open Access Journals: Who, How, And What Scheme?, Lisa E. Cheby 2016 San Jose State University

Open Access Metadata For Journals In Directory Of Open Access Journals: Who, How, And What Scheme?, Lisa E. Cheby

iSchool Student Research Journal

Open access (OA) is a form of publication that allows some level of free access to scholarly publications. The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) is a repository to which OA journals may apply and upload content to increase discoverability. OA also refers to metadata that is freely available for harvesting. In making metadata open access, standards for schemes and protocols are needed to facilitate interoperability. For open access journals, such as those listed in the DOAJ, providing open access metadata in a form that promotes interoperability is essential for discoverability of their content. This paper investigates what standards exist ...

Sense In Documentary Reference: Documentation, Literature, And The Post-Documentary Perspective, Ronald E. Day 2016 Indiana University - Bloomington

Sense In Documentary Reference: Documentation, Literature, And The Post-Documentary Perspective, Ronald E. Day

Proceedings from the Document Academy

Reference in modern documentation is largely governed by theories of evidential representation by documents, as the ‘contents’ of documents. In contrast, newer, what I call ‘post-documentary,’ technologies more emphasize the role of sense in the creation of reference. This paper investigates the implications upon the modernist category of ‘documentation’ and ‘document’ when this shift is taken into account. It also examines the implications upon ‘literature’ as a modernist category that evolved toward contesting modern documentation in the creation of evidence.


A Neo-Documentalist Lens For Exploring The Premises Of Disciplinary Knowledge Making, Lisa Börjesson, Nicolo Dell'Unto, Isto Huvila, Carolina Larsson, Daniel Löwenborg, Bodil Petersson, Per Stenborg 2016 Department of ALM, Uppsala University

A Neo-Documentalist Lens For Exploring The Premises Of Disciplinary Knowledge Making, Lisa Börjesson, Nicolo Dell'unto, Isto Huvila, Carolina Larsson, Daniel Löwenborg, Bodil Petersson, Per Stenborg

Proceedings from the Document Academy

This article applies a neo-documentalist approach to explore disciplinary documentation and document practices, assumed to condition disciplinary knowledge-making. The aim is to show how conceptions and materialities of what counts as documentation and documents are intertwined with changing and persisting disciplinary and sub-disciplinary practices of producing information and knowledge, of knowing, and informing. A collective, multivocal autoethnographic method is used to obtain vignettes from five areas of activity in or related to archaeology. The ongoing digitization of archaeological investigation and documentation methods, and of archaeological materials, is used as a shared departure point in the vignettes, explaining how digitization influences ...
