Evaluating Scholarly Communication Services And Programs To Plan For Sustained Success, Jacklyn Rander, Matt Ruen 2016 Grand Valley State University

Evaluating Scholarly Communication Services And Programs To Plan For Sustained Success, Jacklyn Rander, Matt Ruen

Jacklyn Rander

The scholarly communications program and institutional repository at Grand Valley State University began in 2008, and in its first seven years, grew rapidly. Our team, recently-expanded, now includes three full time positions, and through our repository we host open textbooks, open-access journals, and thousands of documents. Our initial growth was organic and opportunistic, which enabled this initiative to successfully take root in the University Libraries. The next challenge for our scholarly communications program is to make sure those early roots are strong and healthy, so that we can sustain our initial success through the next seven years and beyond.

We’Re Open Access—But Are We Accessible?, Matt Ruen, Jackie Rander 2016 Grand Valley State University

We’Re Open Access—But Are We Accessible?, Matt Ruen, Jackie Rander

Jacklyn Rander

The open access movement, from the Budapest and Berlin declarations onward, has consistently focused on removing economic and legal barriers to scholarly information. While this has increased access to research for many, it implicitly assumes that content need only be online, free, and openly licensed for everyone to have access—an assumption which neglects the barriers that may lurk within content, preventing disabled or impaired users from enjoying the same access to scholarship.

This assumption is as prevalent in library open access services as elsewhere; like many other repository teams, we have focused on recruiting content, not evaluating it. This ...


Nebraska Intellectual Freedom Manual, Round Table on Intellectual Freedom, Nebraska Library Association, Michael Elsener, Sue Ann Gardner, K. Joan Birnie, Karen Drevo, Brenda Ealey, Timothy Lentz, Todd Schlechte 2016 Southeast Community College, Lincoln, Nebraska

Nebraska Intellectual Freedom Manual, Round Table On Intellectual Freedom, Nebraska Library Association, Michael Elsener, Sue Ann Gardner, K. Joan Birnie, Karen Drevo, Brenda Ealey, Timothy Lentz, Todd Schlechte

Zea E-Books

Much has changed in libraries and society since the publication of the 2004 revision of the Nebraska Library Association Intellectual Freedom Manual. The consensus of the current members of the Nebraska Library Association round table on Intellectual Freedom (NLA IF) was not to just revise the former manual, but to create an entirely new edition. In doing so, the authors have addressed a number of new issues. The intention was to keep it relatively brief but still useful. Readers should be able to read sections independent of one another for quick reference on topics of interest. For readers of the ...

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

Roger Weaver

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 ...


Research Impact Of Paywalled Versus Open Access Papers, Éric Archambault, Grégoire Côté, Brooke Struck, Matthieu Voorons 2016 Science-Metrix and 1science

Research Impact Of Paywalled Versus Open Access Papers, Éric Archambault, Grégoire Côté, Brooke Struck, Matthieu Voorons

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

This note presents data from the 1science OAIndx on the average of relative citations (ARC) for 3.3 million papers published from 2007 to 2009 and indexed in the Web of Science (WoS). These data show a decidedly large citation advantage for open access (OA) papers, despite them suffering from a lag in availability compared to paywalled papers.

There is an abundant literature on the citation advantage of OA papers, starting with a succinct communication by Lawrence (2001). Several studies have been listed by SPARC, the majority of which support the idea that when papers are openly available, they are ...

My Attitudes And Beliefs About Different Types Of Research, Michael Lynn 2016 Cornell University

My Attitudes And Beliefs About Different Types Of Research, Michael Lynn

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] In this issue’s “From the Editor,” I describe a new review policy and process for both authors and reviewers. Authors should find that this new policy and process provides them with faster editorial decisions, higher quality feedback, and greater clarity about required revisions, as well as greater freedom to disagree with reviewers and to write the papers they (the authors) want. Reviewers should find that this new policy and process saves them from having to review obviously flawed papers and from having to review different versions of the same paper over and over again.

Starting, Publishing, And Sustaining An Online Journal: Beginner’S Workshop, Pat Maxwell, Anne Larrivee, Lisa DeLuca 2016 The College at Brockport

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 ...
