Saving Time In The Long-Run: A New Workflow For Thesis Submissions, Emily Stenberg 2014 Washington University in St Louis

Saving Time In The Long-Run: A New Workflow For Thesis Submissions, Emily Stenberg

Digital Commons+ Great Lakes User Group Annual Meeting

In January 2014, representatives from the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences and University Libraries at Washington University agreed to move the master's thesis submission process from a local, electronic form directly to the university's repository Open Scholarship, which is supported by Digital Commons. While the reasons for this change included streamlining the process for both students and administrators, making this decision ended up being the easiest part of the process, which took close to six months for repository staff to fully implement. Around the same time, the Graduate School of Art began requiring its master's students to ...

Measuring The International Usage Of U.S. Institutional Repositories, Lauren Fralinger, Jonathan Bull 2014 University of Miami

Measuring The International Usage Of U.S. Institutional Repositories, Lauren Fralinger, Jonathan Bull

Jonathan Bull

Purpose – In an educational world with increasing internationalization, digitization, assessment and financial justification, US institutions, especially academic libraries, must justify each new project. Institutional Repositories (IRs) are no exception. The authors attempt to identify factors that might affect the international usage of US IRs as part of assessment efforts to determine an IR's return-on-investment. Design/methodology/approach – A survey was disseminated to IR administrators asking for demographic information, international usage counts for website hits and downloads, and any internationalization efforts connected to the IR in order to determine any influencing factors on an IR's international usage. Findings – While ...

Adventist Librarianship: Worth Writing About [Poster], Terry Dwain Robertson, Lauren Matacio

Terry Dwain Robertson

A Festschrift style publication would provide a venue for SDA Librarians to publish research and develop a body of professional literature that addresses the needs of SDA libraries and librarians. It is proposed because it does not involve specific time dead- lines and allows for short-term commitments for editorial leadership. It is also an accepted method of acknowledging and recognizing esteemed colleagues.

Evaluating Big Deal Journal Bundles, Ted Bergstrom 2014 University of California, Santa Barbara

Evaluating Big Deal Journal Bundles, Ted Bergstrom

Ted C Bergstrom

Large commercial publishers sell bundled online subscriptions to their entire list of academic journals at prices significantly lower than the sum of their á la carte prices. Bundle prices differ drastically between institutions, but they are not publicly posted. The data that we have collected enable us to compare the bundle prices charged by commercial publishers with those of nonprofit societies and to examine the types of price discrimination practiced by commercial and nonprofit journal publishers. This information is of interest to economists who study monopolist pricing, librarians interested in making efficient use of library budgets, and scholars who are ...

The Advice Not Taken: How One Repository Found Its Own Path, Paul Royster

Library Conference Presentations and Speeches

Managers of institutional repositories are offered much advice, from national organizations (like SPARC) and promoters of movements like Open Access or products like Creative Commons licenses.

The advice generally offered includes: 1.Use open source software 2.Expect faculty to self-archive 3.Seek campus “mandate” or deposit policy 4.Promote author-rights addendum 5.Provide funds for gold OA fees 6.Participate in Open Access events 7.Promote Creative Commons licenses 8.Require peer review ...
