Libraries On The Cutting Edge: The Evolution Of The Journal Of Escience Librarianship, Regina F. Raboin, Julie Goldman, Lisa A. Palmer 2017 University of Massachusetts Medical School

Libraries On The Cutting Edge: The Evolution Of The Journal Of Escience Librarianship, Regina F. Raboin, Julie Goldman, Lisa A. Palmer

Julie Goldman

Libraries are constantly re-framing their services to respond to shifts in community needs. This case study explores the evolution of the library published Journal of eScience Librarianship, as it evolves to continue to serve librarians faced with the many challenges of a data-driven environment. The Journal of eScience Librarianship (JeSLIB) is published by the Lamar Soutter Library at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. JeSLIB is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that explores the role of librarians in supporting scientific research through services such as research data management, data literacy, data curation, data sharing, and librarians embedded on research teams ...


Promoting Faculty Comfort Level With Open Access Resources: The Online Faculty Workshop At Csu Stanislaus, Laura J. French, Maryann Hight 2017 California State University, Stanislaus

Promoting Faculty Comfort Level With Open Access Resources: The Online Faculty Workshop At Csu Stanislaus, Laura J. French, Maryann Hight

Open Access Conference

When the library first became involved with the Affordable Learning $olutions (AL$) initiative, a strategic decision was made to focus our efforts on providing faculty with the information they needed to incorporate affordable learning materials into their courses. Initially, three face-to-face workshops were offered with great success. However, time constraints on faculty was limiting participation. The decision was made by AL$ coordinators to restructure the workshop into an online format.

This presentation will address the process of adapting the in-person workshop to an online format. Feedback from the face-to-face workshops identified faculty concerns with the adoption of open access and ...


Life Support For The Open Access Policy, Anneliese Taylor, Teddy Gomes 2017 University of California, San Francisco

Life Support For The Open Access Policy, Anneliese Taylor, Teddy Gomes

Open Access Conference

UCSF faculty passed an Open Access Policy in 2012, yet it wasn’t until a partially automated research information management system (RIS) was in place in 2015 that there was any measurable increase in deposits to the institutional repository. Despite this uptick, overall engagement with the RIS as well as deposits were lower than the university wanted them to be. In an effort to increase participation with the policy, the UCSF Library embarked on a six-month project to improve the RIS search results and ramp up the deposit rate.

This talk will present the scenario before the project, the methods ...


Building Ethnically Diverse Digital Collections, Kathryn Blackmer Reyes, Emily K. Chan, April Gilbert 2017 San Jose State University

Building Ethnically Diverse Digital Collections, Kathryn Blackmer Reyes, Emily K. Chan, April Gilbert

Open Access Conference

Building ethnically diverse collections has always been challenging -- either because minority communities do not see traditional institutions as keepers of their histories or librarians/archivists are not embedded sufficiently in the communities to recognize the value of their materials. And lastly, when communities do donate physical materials, processing and enabling access to these collections can often be slow, due to a myriad of reasons. The perception of a lack of public interest may lead to low processing priority, which only increases the potential for loss. Minority communities' motivation may be negatively impacted, furthering mistrust of traditional institutions and harming any ...


Open Access Publishing In Southeast Asia, Zoë McLaughlin 2017 University of Michigan - Ann Arbor

Open Access Publishing In Southeast Asia, Zoë Mclaughlin

Open Access Conference

Throughout Southeast Asia, universities are turning to open access publishing for their journals. In Indonesia, the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education has advised all universities to use Open Journal Systems as a means for archiving and displaying their content. However, these journals and others of their kind remain poorly indexed and volatile. What is the current state of journal publishing in Southeast Asia? How can the positive aspects of open access be harnessed to allow for more discoverability and use of scholarly research from Southeast Asia? In this lightning talk, I will provide an overview of open access ...


Open Access In Health Sciences: Learning, Adapting, And Trying To Grow In Academic And Clinical Settings, Rachel K. Stark, Mickel Paris, Joy Rodriguez 2017 California State University, Sacramento

Open Access In Health Sciences: Learning, Adapting, And Trying To Grow In Academic And Clinical Settings, Rachel K. Stark, Mickel Paris, Joy Rodriguez

Open Access Conference

Increasingly clinical doctors desire and need to publish their research. As a result, the issue of open access is moving into the clinical setting. This presents unique challenges to Health Science Librarians. In addition to working alone and with very limited library budgets, Health Science Librarians must stretch their current role to include becoming an open access expert in order to educate hospital administrators and library users, while giving proper advice and guidance to authors within their institutions. Health Sciences Librarians in academic settings also face limited budgets and increasing requests for access to materials on generally smaller budgets. Issues ...


Read, Gold, And Green: California Academic Librarians And Open Access Publishing, Lana Wood 2017 California State University, East Bay

Read, Gold, And Green: California Academic Librarians And Open Access Publishing, Lana Wood

Open Access Conference

Academic librarians are often charged with providing copyright and intellectual property guidance to faculty. However, librarians are also producers of information and make decisions about where their information is published and how this affects access to their work. In this presentation, I will discuss findings from a 2016 survey of California academic librarians on their publishing and archiving practices, to better understand whether librarians “practice what they preach.”


Situating Open Educational Resources For Csu Faculty And Student Success, Leslie Kennedy EdD, Lesley Farmer PhD 2017 CSU Chancellor's Office

Situating Open Educational Resources For Csu Faculty And Student Success, Leslie Kennedy Edd, Lesley Farmer Phd

Open Access Conference

Economic inequity is a pervasive aspect of the population of California State University (CSU) students. There are significant differences in the ability of our students to afford the total cost of their CSU education. Not only are they afforded less access to educational materials, but they also may be disadvantaged in knowing how to take advantage of those resources.

Providing free, open, and/or low-cost options for course materials is a CSU Affordable Learning Solutions (AL$) strategy to significantly reduce the impact of economic inequities. Thus, we situate open as enabling equitable academic opportunities and successful educational outcomes for all ...

Opening Talk: What Is Access? Thinking Beyond Online Availability To A More Just Scholarly Communication System, Charlotte Roh

Open Access Conference

We've come so far with the open access movement on the institutional, state, federal, and even international level. It's fair to say that the open access movement has in fact changed the landscape of scholarly publishing. But there are also things that haven't changed, and injustices that remain, that we need to consider in how scholarly knowledge is traditionally constructed.

Open Access Week Seeks To Address “Textbook Crisis”, Gauri Mangala

Open Access Week at Gettysburg College

Jay Hauser ‘19 spent $391.43 for a single course’s materials during his first semester at Gettysburg College.

“I had a class where we read classical text of [political] philosophy. But only sections of each text. But we had to buy the books. No one ever tried to bring in open source online copies of them and the professor did not provide them. Instead we spent a lot of money on like twentyish books and only used parts of them.”

In fact, a 2016 analysis conducted by College Board found that the price of books and supplies for a ...

Group Fun: Moving To Alma In The Cohort Model, Daniel Taylor, Terri Ann Coronel

Library Presentations

Ithaca College, along with 5 other US institutions, went live with Alma in August 2017. The migration to Alma, as part of a cohort, has its share of advantages and disadvantages. In general, we’ll give an overview the plan Ithaca College used in our cohort migration, and what worked well and could have used improvement. More specifically, we will discuss topics such as preparing to migrate, creating a holistic plan, streamlining project/time management, training library staff, managing expectations, and what we would have done differently. The presentation will be around 50-60 minutes.
