Raising The Library's Impact Factor : A Case Study In Scholarly Publishing Literacy For Graduate Students., Samantha McClellan, Robert Detmering, George Martinez, Anna Marie Johnson 2017 University of Louisville

Raising The Library's Impact Factor : A Case Study In Scholarly Publishing Literacy For Graduate Students., Samantha Mcclellan, Robert Detmering, George Martinez, Anna Marie Johnson

Faculty Scholarship

Graduate students across disciplines feel pressure to publish their scholarship, but they are often unsure how to go about it, partly due to a lack of explicit training in this area. This article discusses the collaborative development of a semester-long Publishing Academy, designed to promote knowledge of scholarly publishing and increase the library’s impact within the graduate student community. Demonstrating how librarians can draw on their unique skills to build a niche service addressing unmet needs on campus, the project also puts into practice a broader conception of scholarly publishing literacy, which can be linked to the Association of ...

Pdxopen: Psu's Open Textbook Initiative, Karen Bjork

Karen Bjork

Open access textbook publishing initiatives not only provide libraries the opportunity to recast their longstanding mission to facilitate research and remove barriers to information they also impact student affordability efforts. How can a library build a program that will meet the needs of students, faculty, and administrators? The answer lies in collaboration and sharing.

In 2013, with the support of a Provost-backed initiative, Portland State University (PSU) Library developed an open textbook publishing program that works with faculty to create open textbooks specifically designed for a course. The publishing initiative, PDXOpen, has published 10 open textbooks with an additional 7 ...

Advancing Data Management Education And Services, Elaine R. Martin

Journal of eScience Librarianship

This issue’s editorial focuses on the response of librarians and information professionals to the United States government’s open access mandates. Librarians and information professionals realize that developing strong data science education curriculum and data literacy skills, dialoging with each other about shared staffing goals, and discovering which data services an institution needs, are vital in helping institutions be able to meet these mandates.

Greater Than the Sum of Our Parts: Building Support for OER from Existing Services on Campus
Matt Ruen, Grand Valley State University Libraries

At Grand Valley State University, the Libraries and several campus partners--including campus IT and offices that support faculty research and effective teaching--have come together to provide support for the creation and adoption of Open Educational Resources (OER) on our campus. But rather than developing brand new programs or asking for additional resources right at the start, we realized that each of our units already offers services that could support faculty creating and using OER. Through our OER ...


Classification Methods In Context At Theological Libraries: A Case Study, Chloe G. Noland 2017 San Jose State University

Classification Methods In Context At Theological Libraries: A Case Study, Chloe G. Noland

SLIS Student Research Journal

This case study explores issues of interoperability and shared collection management between two libraries – one community and one academic – located within the American Jewish University (AJU). AJU’s choice to use two separate classification systems, Library of Congress and Elazar, respectively, provides a necessary separation of academic and religious context, but limits record access between the two collections. Specifically, this study aims to answer the following core research question: is consolidation into one classification scheme both a realistic and helpful solution for increased interoperability? Examining the history, patron needs, and principles of arrangement in both systems provided further insights regarding ...

Developing New Streams Of Undergraduate Submissions, Debra J. Rodensky, Kadie J. Mullins, Wesley Lewis 2017 Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Developing New Streams Of Undergraduate Submissions, Debra J. Rodensky, Kadie J. Mullins, Wesley Lewis

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2017

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) has been successful in attracting faculty participation in Scholarly Commons, its institutional repository. Other than dissertations and theses, however, student submissions have been slow in coming, despite university priorities to support and disseminate undergraduate research. In early 2017, the scholarly communications staff at Hunt Library set out to change that picture. Energized by a Digital Commons webinar exploring approaches to highlighting undergraduate opportunities, they approached campus colleagues with a new venture – capturing the research experiences of students going abroad during the summer of 2017. The idea was enthusiastically embraced and within a short time, a partnership ...
