Across The Great Divide: Findings And Possibilities For Action From The 2016 Summit Meeting Of Academic Libraries And University Presses With Administrative Relationships (P2l), Mary Rose Muccie, Joe Lucia, Elliott Shore, Clifford Lynch, Peter Berkery

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

The library-press relationship explored in P2L allows for transformative approaches in support and dissemination of scholarship. Effective exploitation of these partnerships is in the early stages and there is an opportunity to influence the outcomes to ensure they are as broadly applicable and scalable as possible. As Cliff Lynch (CNI) noted in his summary of the day’s conversation, we must do more exploration of both intra-institutional (library and press) and cross-institutional collaborations. He provided several compelling suggestions for partnerships, including new ways to promote and leverage library special collections as well as ideas for increasing discoverability of press content ...

Catholic Academic Libraries And Print Promotional Materials, Katy Kelly

Katy Kelly

Catholic academic libraries are the focus of this study for several reasons. Not only are Catholic academic libraries private institutions with varying budgets, but they hold special and unique collections of particular interest to a diverse group of constituents, including scholars, vowed religious, and laypersons. With these elements in mind, to what extent are Catholic academic libraries still using print promotional materials? This study aims to uncover trends concerning academic libraries' budgets, staffing, and production workflows with regard to promoting with print.


Creating Green Open Access To Institutional Scholarship Using Digital Commons, Deborah L. White, Yumi Ohira 2016 Pittsburg State University

Creating Green Open Access To Institutional Scholarship Using Digital Commons, Deborah L. White, Yumi Ohira

Kansas Library Association College and University Libraries Section Proceedings

The digital repository serves as a Green Open Access solution to globally share scholarship produced by the university community. Both Pittsburg State University (PSU) and Fort Hays State University (FHSU) previously used CONTENTdm (CDM) as their primary digital repository. In 2015, both PSU and FHSU purchased and launched Bepress Digital Commons (DC), a more robust repository. Considering global discoverability, unlimited storage, efficient technical support, and the ability to share a wide range of file formats in one interface, Digital Commons by Bepress is the most reliable for small institutions.

This paper is based on the presentation delivered by PSU and ...

Agents Of Diversity And Social Justice: Librarians And Scholarly Communication, Harrison W. Inefuku, Charlotte Roh 2016 Iowa State University

Agents Of Diversity And Social Justice: Librarians And Scholarly Communication, Harrison W. Inefuku, Charlotte Roh

Harrison W. Inefuku

Scholarly communication is central to the academic endeavor. For researchers, publishing is the vehicle through which they contribute new knowledge to the scholarly record. For faculty members, their record of scholarship is a measure of their efficacy as researchers and their scholarly impact. The ability of faculty to participate in scholarly communication and add to the scholarly canon is central to the development and continuation of their careers. The importance of publishing is reflected in the tenure and promotion process. A 2006 survey by the Modern Language Association found that “demands placed on candidates for tenure, especially demands for publication ...

Librarian Engagement And Social Justice In Publishing, Charlotte Roh, Emily Drabinski, Harrison W. Inefuku

Countless studies and personal narratives have demonstrated that cultural, racial, and gender bias influence important aspects of academia, including in traditional book and journal publishing. Scholarly communications and LIS publishing can challenge the traditional modes of publishing both in format and content. Presenters will discuss their work in this area, addressing topics like race, culture, sexuality, and gender in formats like print books, online journals, and institutional repositories. Presenters will also talk about how to talk to faculty and graduate students about the entire scholarly communication lifecycle, and how they can intervene to circumvent cultural bias and injustice.
