Nasig Core Competencies For Scholarly Communication Librarians, Andrew Wesolek, Wm. Joseph Thomas, Angela Dresselhaus, Julie Fielding, Char Simser, Sarah Sutton, Jason Boczar, Rachel Miles, Stephanie Spratt, Wendy Robertson, Betsy Appleton

Jason Boczar

The following Core Competencies for Scholarly Communication Librarians were developed out of research and discussion conducted by the NASIG Scholarly Communication Core Competencies Task Force. Scholarly communication is defined by ACRL as “the system through which research and other scholarly writings are created, evaluated for quality, disseminated to the scholarly community, and preserved for future use. The system includes both formal means of communication, such as publication in peer-reviewed journals, and informal channels, such as electronic listservs (Association of College & Research Libraries, “Principles and Strategies for the Reform of Scholarly Communication 1,” 2003). The specific duties of the scholarly communication ...

Making The Mission Visible: Altmetrics And Nontraditional Publishing, Jennifer Bonnet, Marisa L. Mendez-Brady 2017 University of Maine

Making The Mission Visible: Altmetrics And Nontraditional Publishing, Jennifer Bonnet, Marisa L. Mendez-Brady

Library Staff Publications

Whereas traditional book and journal publishing remain the gold standard for many post-secondary institutions, nontraditional publishing is just as prolific at the flagship university in Maine. The university has strong land and sea grant missions that drive a broad research agenda, with an emphasis on community outreach and engagement. However, the impact of researchers’ contributions outside of academe is unlikely to be accurately reflected in promotion, tenure or review processes. Thus, the authors designed a series of altmetrics workshops aimed at seeding conversations around novel ways to track the impact of researchers’ diverse scholarly and creative outputs. This paper presents ...


Assessing The Openness Of Anthropology Journals, Melody Dale, Nickoal Eichmann-Kalwara, Sheeji Kathuria, Mary Ann Jones 2017 Mississippi State University

Assessing The Openness Of Anthropology Journals, Melody Dale, Nickoal Eichmann-Kalwara, Sheeji Kathuria, Mary Ann Jones

University Libraries Faculty & Staff Contributions

This study analyses the extent of gold open access (OA) publishing options in 377 anthropology journals by applying a six-level coding scheme (0=non-transparent publishing, 5=fully OA, i.e., free to read and publish without embargo). This analysis is meant to simplify the process of identifying OA journal publishing options in the discipline of anthropology, in addition to sharing findings on some of the prominent issues in OA publishing as they relate to anthropology journals, including non-transparency among publishers and the prevalence and price of article processing charges (APCs). We conclude that publishers should be more transparent about their ...

Game, Set, Match: Conquer Your Library’S Content Management Needs With Libguides Cms, Jeffrey M. Mortimore, Ruth L. Baker, Dawn N. Cannon-Rech, Jessica Garner, Billy Glasco, Debra G. Skinner

Library Faculty Presentations

With the ability to create uniquely branded groups of guides limited to specific content creators and audiences, LibGuides CMS significantly expands the flexibility of the LibGuides platform to support libraries’ content management needs. During this session, presenters will share a series of use cases with LibGuides CMS, including two limited-access staff intranet sites; two limited-permission student-curated course sites; a uniquely branded special collections event site; a uniquely-branded peer-reviewed literary journal; and two faculty-curated conference presentation sites. This session will be of interest to anyone using LibGuides, LibGuides CMS, or similar content management systems.

Scholarly Publishing Literacy: Reaching Our Researchers, Carol Ann Borchert, Jason Boczar 2017 University of South Florida

Scholarly Publishing Literacy: Reaching Our Researchers, Carol Ann Borchert, Jason Boczar

Carol Ann Davis

For the past several years, librarians have been building repositories and publishing programs, becoming increasingly adept in producing and determining the quality of open access publications. Though researchers may be experts within their own subject areas, many aspects of the publishing process remain a mystery to them. Understanding when to request copyright permissions or how to negotiate their own rights with publishers are sometimes afterthoughts in the research process. Some of our faculty or even students may fall prey to predatory publishing practices, not knowing what criteria to apply in evaluating new publication outlets. In our role as library publishers ...

Emerging Roles: Academic Libraries Crossing The Digital Divide, Kenneth Angell 2017 The University of Southern Mississippi

Emerging Roles: Academic Libraries Crossing The Digital Divide, Kenneth Angell

SLIS Connecting

For every advance of information and communication technology in the 20thand 21st centuries, there has been gap between those who can readily adopt and benefit from it and those who cannot. As higher education becomes increasingly enmeshed in Internet-based learning, academic libraries will need to maintain and even increase digital literacy and fluency instruction in spite of presumed reduced need. Furthermore, academic libraries themselves will need to examine their own status in the divide.
