Electronic Resource Management In A Post-Plan S World, Jill Emery, Graham Stone 2021 Portland State University

Electronic Resource Management In A Post-Plan S World, Jill Emery, Graham Stone

Library Faculty Publications and Presentations

cOAlition S and research funding policies mean open access content is no longer a "trend" but rather another consideration of content management for librarians and libraries. In 2018, the authors of this article launched a new version of TERMS (Techniques for Electronic Resources Management). TERMS 2.0 envisages a post-Plan S e-resources life cycle blending e-resources and open access content management. This article outlines how open content management can dovetail into current e-resource management tactics across six TERMS: Investigation of material, procurement and licensing of content, implementation, troubleshooting of problems, evaluation and preservation, and sustainability concerns. Lastly, we reflect on ...

Filling In The Gaps: A Diversity Audit Toolkit From Tredway Library, María Evelia Emerson, Lauryn Grace Lehman 2021 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Filling In The Gaps: A Diversity Audit Toolkit From Tredway Library, María Evelia Emerson, Lauryn Grace Lehman

Library and Information Science: Faculty Scholarship & Creative Works

In the spring of 2021, the Tredway Library at Augustana College (Rock Island, IL) implemented an audit of the library's print book collection to see if there were gaps in representation of the voices of authors of differing races/ ethnicities; genders; or sexual orientations. With the results of this audit, Augustana librarians now have a better understanding of which voices and perspectives are missing and/or underrepresented in the print collection. This toolkit is intended to assist other libraries / information organizations in undertaking similar diversity audits of their own.

The History And Current Challenges Of Libraries In Japan, Francis A. Alix 2021 San Jose State University

The History And Current Challenges Of Libraries In Japan, Francis A. Alix

SLIS Connecting

Japan's libraries have many positive attributes and continue to evolve. However, many library sectors struggle with serving users because of staff outsourcing, library leadership, and a focus on circulation statistics that prevent them from developing into 21st-century information and community centers. This paper reviews the history and current status of each library sector, including their services and staffing. It then examines their current challenges and how professionalism, librarian education, and community engagement are the main challenges to their success and suggests recommendations to elevate them to compete in the global arena.


Locating Banned Books: A Collection Analysis Of Libraries In Arkansas And Tennessee, Floyce Thomas 2021 University of Southern Mississippi

Locating Banned Books: A Collection Analysis Of Libraries In Arkansas And Tennessee, Floyce Thomas

SLIS Connecting

No library can make everything available to its patrons. However, libraries should adhere to the American Library Association (ALA) for guidance on what items are banned from the library's collections. Censorship and intellectual freedom have gained attention for how it affects libraries and the restraints it individualized for banned or forbidden items. Difficulties are characterized as formal, composed complaints recorded with a library or school asking for specific materials to be expelled from view because the substance may not be considered appropriate for the users.

The purpose of this study is to compare a selected set of previously banned ...


Reaching Out: A Publication Trend Analysis Of Scholarly Articles Discussing Graphic Novels And Reluctant Or Struggling Readers, Mary Kirkham 2021 University of Southern Mississippi

Reaching Out: A Publication Trend Analysis Of Scholarly Articles Discussing Graphic Novels And Reluctant Or Struggling Readers, Mary Kirkham

SLIS Connecting

Graphic novels combine short text and pictures to tell a story or convey information while still engaging the reader visually. This is a potentially useful tool for reaching out to struggling and reluctant readers. Struggling readers have difficulty reading and understanding what it is they are reading. Pictures allow for more context clues than just text alone, allowing for the potential for greater success in comprehension for struggling readers. Reluctant readers, on the other hand, may have more of a distaste for reading. In some cases, they are capable of understanding what they read, but they do not enjoy the ...


Ethics And Cyber Libraries: Challenges Facing The Values And Ethics In Lis, Jessica Omer 2021 University of Missouri

Ethics And Cyber Libraries: Challenges Facing The Values And Ethics In Lis, Jessica Omer

SLIS Connecting

Cyber libraries face many challenges when it comes to access. These challenges can lead to cyber libraries failing in following the guidelines for the values and ethics of the LIS professional. Some authors have argued that cyber libraries are the future of libraries. They argue that patrons want information immediately at their fingertips. The fact that library budgets are shrinking and electronic sources can be cheaper cause many libraries to lean more towards the idea of cyber libraries. However, while digital libraries do have their advantages, they are not perfect. We live in a time where librarians have their feet ...


Out-Of-Print Books As E-Books: A Collection Analysis, Mary Frances Calix 2021 University of Southern Mississippi

Out-Of-Print Books As E-Books: A Collection Analysis, Mary Frances Calix

SLIS Connecting

In recent years, archival institutions have begun to digitally archive or preserve the items in their collections. This way, items are more accessible to those wanting to perform research but not necessarily handle the original documents and are not likely to be permanently damaged. One example of a digital preservation project is the one that forms the basis for this paper- the Oklahoma Historical Society's collection of out-of-print historical books that have been made available as e-books. Created over three years ago, this collection contains 22 books about Oklahoma and Texas history. The original publication dates of the books ...

Library Community In Social Media: Exploration Of Past Studies, Haslina Husain, Mazwani Ayu Mazlan 2021 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Library Community In Social Media: Exploration Of Past Studies, Haslina Husain, Mazwani Ayu Mazlan

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

This article explores the concept of a library through social media platforms, resulting in forming a community that offers support, knowledge exchange, research, and networking opportunities. Articles review was taken between the publication year 2006 until 2021. Libraries can also utilize social media to share specific resources and collections and educate and market what is available. Creating content is one of the virtues for libraries to create awareness among their users and followers on social media platforms. Past researchers of the study are discussed exponentially to provide a holistic view on this matter. Challenges faced by the libraries in using ...
