Reforma Oregon Chapter, 2017 Pacific University

Reforma Oregon Chapter

OLA Quarterly

During the 2014 OLA Annual Conference in Salem, a group of librarians met informally for lunch to discuss the idea of creating a chapter of REFORMA (The National Association to Promote Library and Information to Latinos and Spanish Speaking) in Oregon.

In our second meeting at the end of 2014 in the Gresham branch of the Multnomah County Library (MCL), we formalized the creation of the REFORMA Oregon Chapter. By mid-2015, we became a Round Table in OLA. During this short period of time, we have increased in numbers, organized well-attended presentations during OLA conferences, held Mock Pura Belpré Awards ...


Media Constructed Retirement Articles Of Professional Baseball Players, Kevin T. Berge 2017 St. John Fisher College

Media Constructed Retirement Articles Of Professional Baseball Players, Kevin T. Berge

Sport Management Undergraduate

The career of an athlete may shape the narrative that the media uses when writing articles on that player when they retire. Many people fail to understand how the media constructs articles the way they do on Major League Baseball (MLB) players upon retirement. This research study used a mixed method approach to show how the media covers certain professional MLB players when they retire. The researcher counted how many times chosen variables were mentioned in two different articles of sixteen retired MLB players, and then extracted quotes from those articles. This study found that superstar pitchers and superstar hitters ...


How Automated Workflows Helped Us Ingest 600 Faculty Publications In Three Months In Lmu’S Institutional Repository!, Shilpa Rele, Jessea Young 2017 Loyola Marymount University

How Automated Workflows Helped Us Ingest 600 Faculty Publications In Three Months In Lmu’S Institutional Repository!, Shilpa Rele, Jessea Young

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Conducting copyright clearance and ingesting appropriate versions of faculty publications can be a labor intensive and time consuming process. At Loyola Marymount University (LMU), a medium-size, private institution, the Digital Library Program (DLP) began exploring and experimenting with automated processes to manage copyright clearance and ingest workflows with regards to faculty publications. The goal of such experimentation was to increase efficiency in our processes to ingest more faculty publications in LMU's institutional repository. This session will outline our workflows and tools used to manage the workflows, highlight some of the issues and challenges we experienced during this exploratory process ...


Prototyping The Open Textbook Toolkit: Digital Infrastructure That Connects Libraries, Disciplinary Faculty, And University Presses To Support Open Education, William M. Cross, Mira Waller 2017 North Carolina State University

Prototyping The Open Textbook Toolkit: Digital Infrastructure That Connects Libraries, Disciplinary Faculty, And University Presses To Support Open Education, William M. Cross, Mira Waller

Digital Initiatives Symposium

If you care about access to information, student success, or transformative education you’re probably thinking about the potential of open educational resources (OERs). As a profession, librarians have embraced open education but so far, we have not given faculty instructors the tools or infrastructure needed to drive wide engagement. Faculty are interested in creating customized resources that empower their instruction but barriers around creation, hosting, and remix of OERs are too high.

This session introduces the Open Textbook Toolkit, a project designed to reduce those barriers and grounded in deep research about the unmet needs of instructors and students ...


Privacy And Anonymity In A Reference Librarianship Digital Archive, Emily K. Chan 2017 San Jose State University

Privacy And Anonymity In A Reference Librarianship Digital Archive, Emily K. Chan

Digital Initiatives Symposium

This poster will discuss the ethical concerns with the processing, digitizing, and organizing of the Pacific Library Partnership’s System Reference Center (SRC) reference question archive, which contains material artifacts of complex reference questions from 1972-2004.

Reference services, a core librarian responsibility, centers on connecting users with answers, materials, and the information that will satisfy their research needs. With the proliferation of online materials and ubiquity of search engines, the nature of reference services has changed dramatically over the last decades.

The archive is comprised of questions submitted for reference librarian review by other reference librarians who had exhausted local ...


Determining Copyright, Licensing And Terms Of Use For A Digital Newspaper Collection: The Catholic News Archive, Jennifer Younger 2017 Catholic Research Resources Alliance

Determining Copyright, Licensing And Terms Of Use For A Digital Newspaper Collection: The Catholic News Archive, Jennifer Younger

Digital Initiatives Symposium

In this poster, I discuss how the Catholic Research Resources Alliance (CRRA) approached issues of copyright, licensing and terms of use for the Catholic News Archive. Implemented in summer 2016, the Archive provides online access to a full text, aggregated digital collection Catholic newspapers and is the only collection like it in existence. Our goal is to have a digital collection as openly accessible as possible, licensed under a Creative Commons license in concert with the interests of libraries, archives, publishers, scholars, funding agencies and other stakeholders. We needed to learn how views of stakeholders are similar or different, what ...

Scholarly Publishing Education For Academic Authors: Reframing The Library’S Instruction Role, Charlotte Roh, Gail P. Clement 2017 University of San Francisco

Scholarly Publishing Education For Academic Authors: Reframing The Library’S Instruction Role, Charlotte Roh, Gail P. Clement

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Scholarly publishing has made great strides in fulfilling the vision of open access, with more journals and papers now freely available to read and reference on the Internet. Yet that achievement falls short of a truly global open, trusted, and reuseable scholarly record. What are the next steps in openness and the pain points in providing completely open scholarship? Education about the publishing process is still developing, particularly when the publishing infrastructure includes the same colonial systems and biases in academic research and publishing that persist throughout academia. These biases influence what gets published, who gets tenure, what research gets ...


How Libraries Are Meeting Researcher Needs In The Digital Humanities, Kelley F. Rowan 2017 Florida International University

How Libraries Are Meeting Researcher Needs In The Digital Humanities, Kelley F. Rowan

Works of the FIU Libraries

This presentation will provide guidance for those considering the creation of a digital humanities (DH) lab, as well as for those with a current functional DH lab. The Digital Scholars Studio at Florida International University (FIU) was created in 2016 with the purpose of providing needed technology and collaborative space for researchers and students. We will explore the challenges experienced by restricted space and budget and discuss how we resolved these specific limitations before continuing with an in-depth look at programming and usage of DH software and tools. We will take a look at a few current projects our researchers ...

Where Students Start And What They Do When They Get Stuck: A Qualitative Inquiry Into Academic Information-Seeking And Help-Seeking Practices, Eamon Tewell, Susan E. Thomas, Gloria Willson 2017 Long Island University - Brooklyn Campus

Where Students Start And What They Do When They Get Stuck: A Qualitative Inquiry Into Academic Information-Seeking And Help-Seeking Practices, Eamon Tewell, Susan E. Thomas, Gloria Willson

Brooklyn Library Faculty Publications

This study investigates two questions key to academic library resources and services: Which sources are students most likely to use to begin their academic work? Whom do students tend to consult for research assistance? In-depth interviews conducted with 15 undergraduate and graduate students were thematically analyzed through a three-step process. The findings indicate that students are most likely to consult faculty and peers for assistance and are largely unaware of librarians' roles, while they tend to begin research using library databases and do not necessarily start with Google. In addition, student use of small study groups as learning networks and ...


Review Of "Dynamic Research Support For Academic Libraries", Steve Brantley 2017 Eastern Illinois University

Review Of "Dynamic Research Support For Academic Libraries", Steve Brantley

Faculty Research & Creative Activity

A book review of DYNAMIC RESEARCH SUPPORT FOR ACADEMIC LIBRARIES. Hoffman, Starr, (Ed.) London: Facet Publishing, 2016, xxi+154pp., $63.00, 978-1-78330-049-5. Dynamic Research Support for Academic Libraries is a refreshingly inclusive collection of essays with the ambitious goal of broadening our perspectives as academic public service librarians, so that we may better serve a wide range of research needs. For several years the professional literature in librarianship has been preparing us for a shift away from traditional roles and services. This is right and proper since indeed this shift has taken place in the profession and few (if any ...

Advancing An Open Ethos With Open Peer Review, Emily Ford 2017 Portland State University

Advancing An Open Ethos With Open Peer Review, Emily Ford

Library Faculty Publications and Presentations

Guest Editorial

Open source. Open access. Open data. Open notebooks. Open government. Open educational resources. Open access workflows. To be open is to have a disposition favoring transparent and collaborative efforts.

Open is everywhere. Since the late 90’s when developers in Silicon Valley adopted the term ‘open source’ (suggested by Christine Peterson), the open movement has grown by leaps and bounds. The developers, who met after the web browser company Netscape made its source code open, articulated that ‘open’ “…illustrated a valuable way to engage with potential software users and developers, and convince them to create and improve source ...


Support For Open Access In The Humanities: An Analysis Of Current Approaches, Abbey Kayleen Elder 2017 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Support For Open Access In The Humanities: An Analysis Of Current Approaches, Abbey Kayleen Elder

Masters Theses

The purpose of this study is to explore the ways scholarly communication librarians at academic libraries support humanities faculty at their institutions who are interested in open access. This was accomplished through a mixed method survey of scholarly communication librarians, that is librarians who offer outreach and education to faculty about open access and similar scholarly publishing innovations. The study was conducted to learn about the types of resources available for faculty interested in open access, and to specifically learn more about the types of support available for open access in the humanities. This follows other studies that have explored ...
