Analysing The Future Of Zimbabwe’S Academic Libraries: From Their Historical Past To Preparedness For Current Realities And Requirements, Judith Mavodza 2013 Zayed University

Analysing The Future Of Zimbabwe’S Academic Libraries: From Their Historical Past To Preparedness For Current Realities And Requirements, Judith Mavodza

Judith Mavodza Dr.

The functions of academic libraries and librarians are evolving due to rapidly changing globalized information environments. This chapter explains the development of academic libraries in Zimbabwe reflecting a realization of their importance to every institution of higher learning. The implication, for the Zimbabwe librarian, is therefore to continuously find ways of re-tooling in order to remain relevant and proactive in order to be able to meet or anticipate new needs and demands that result from a knowledge-driven academic environment. The reality is that libraries in Zimbabwe face big technological challenges and lack adequate funding while pursuing their desire to support ...

Student Embargoes Within Institutional Repositories: Faculty Early Transparency Concerns, David Stern 2013 Illinois State University

Student Embargoes Within Institutional Repositories: Faculty Early Transparency Concerns, David Stern

David Stern

Within the academic sphere there are legitimate reasons why some faculty-student collaboration efforts should not be documented and released ASAP as open access materials placed in institutional repositories. The need for the protection of ideas and processes prior to faculty publication can be in direct conflict with the intention for institutional repositories to promote the excellent efforts of students. This is certainly true in laboratory situations in which details of experiments and research areas are guarded for the lifetime of the exploration process. The implications of this situation can range from the removal of students from sensitive collaborations (unless there ...

Publishing Inti: A Suite Of Services Case Study, Mark J. Caprio, Christiane M. Landry

Mark J Caprio

Discusses the development of Providence College’s Phillips Memorial Library+Commons Digital Publishing Services (DPS) Department and its evolving collaborative partnership with the faculty editor of Inti: La revista de literatura hispánica, a paper subscription-based, peer-reviewed journal. Beginning with digitization and publication through Providence College’s institutional repository (IR) of the earliest issues, the paper details the evolution of the partnership through support for digital print-on-demand and creation of a companion website for both promoting forthcoming issues and for exploring new forms of “writing” and expression through digital media.


A Current Snapshot Of Institutional Repositories: Growth Rate, Disciplinary Content And Faculty Contributions, Ellen Dubinsky 2013 Bridgewater State University

A Current Snapshot Of Institutional Repositories: Growth Rate, Disciplinary Content And Faculty Contributions, Ellen Dubinsky

Ellen Dubinsky

INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to examine current institutional repository (IR) content in order to assess the growth and breadth of content as it reflects faculty participation, and to identify successful strategies for increasing that participation. Previous studies have shown that faculty-initiated submissions to IRs, no matter the platform, are uncommon. Repository managers employ a variety of methods to solicit and facilitate faculty participation, including a variety of print marketing tools, presentations, and one-on-one consultations. METHODS This mixed method study examined faculty content in IRs through both a quantitative analysis of repository content and growth rate and a ...


E-Resource Acquisitions In Academic Library Consortia, Christine N. Turner 2013 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

E-Resource Acquisitions In Academic Library Consortia, Christine N. Turner

Christine Turner

Scholarly publishing is the information marketplace in which academic libraries function, and major shifts in traditional publishing and pricing models are in process. Library consortia have long been viewed as a means of increasing purchasing power and reducing costs. In late 2010, the Five College Libraries (FCL) hired R2 Consulting, LLC to investigate and make recommendations regarding how the Libraries cooperate more closely on the acquisition, management, and delivery of electronic resources. This study examines and evaluates how other academic library consortia are licensing and acquiring electronic books, databases, journals and streaming media. The organizations, activities, processes, history and trends ...

Catholic Academic Libraries And Print Promotional Materials, Katy Kelly

Roesch Library Faculty Publications

Catholic academic libraries are the focus of this study for several reasons. Not only are Catholic academic libraries private institutions with varying budgets, but they hold special and unique collections of particular interest to a diverse group of constituents, including scholars, vowed religious, and laypersons. With these elements in mind, to what extent are Catholic academic libraries still using print promotional materials? This study aims to uncover trends concerning academic libraries' budgets, staffing, and production workflows with regard to promoting with print.

Staff publications, research, and presentations

Interest in student peer-reviewed open-access journals is beginning to grow. Our presentation will explore what it takes to produce such a journal and what it delivers in terms of student experience. We begin with an overview of the value of student research. We will also address student involvement in the Scholarly Communication process, as presented in ACRL's publication Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy. We will look at three OA peer-reviewed student journals: Illinois Wesleyan University's Undergraduate Economic Review, Macalester College's Tapestries: Interwoven Voices of Local and Global Identities, and Indiana University's Illuminare: A Student ...
