Summer Research Enrichment: An Asynchronous, Multi-Disciplinary, Scholarly Publishing Module, Michelle Price, Kristin F. Picardo Mar 2023

Summer Research Enrichment: An Asynchronous, Multi-Disciplinary, Scholarly Publishing Module, Michelle Price, Kristin F. Picardo

Lavery Library Faculty/Staff Publications

At St. John Fisher University, a primarily undergraduate institution in upstate New York, undergraduates in any major can participate in a ten-week intensive Summer Fellows Research Program overseen by the Center for Student Research and Creative Work. Students partner with faculty or staff mentors to dive deep into a disciplinary question or topic, learning the methods for research study along with their mentor. Oftentimes, students drive the question design themselves, further enhancing their experience in this high-impact practice. Throughout the program, students and mentors are supported through stipends, supply funds, professional development and community building sessions, and dissemination opportunities.

Care And Accountability In Library Leadership, Annie Bélanger, Kat Bell, Maisha Carey, Jon Jeffryes, Meghan Musolff

Presentations

Leaders and managers have an outsized impact on workers’ wellbeing. In facing the reality of constant and unpredictable change, leaders and managers need to consider the humanity of their employees as part of their commitment to equity. We suggest that library leaders and managers need to consider human-centered approaches as part of their leadership toolkit. Human-centered leaders have a strong focus on people and the organizational culture. They layer compassion and empathy in taking actions to fulfill the organization's mission.

We acknowledge that there are situations when taking a human-centered approach to the needs of library employees can feel in …

Georgia Library Quarterly

The Georgia Southern University Libraries launched a 3D printing program for students in July 2022.

This article describes the reasons why the Georgia Southern University Libraries thought that a 3D printing program could fulfill a service need for students across university colleges and departments and outlines some of the challenges, best practices, and unique innovations that the library’s employees experienced throughout the program launch process.

A Call For Help: Tailored Training For Suicide Prevention In Libraries, Marina Hand, Lacey Rogers

Criss Library Faculty Proceedings & Presentations

In 2018, 48,000 deaths by suicide were reported out of 1.4 million attempts in the United States.

In the state of Nebraska alone suicide occurs in 12.5 per 100,000 people, keeping in line with the national average of that year. Within the last year, the number of staff reporting alarming phone calls from distressed patrons has grown. The pandemic has exacerbated mental health issues among the population, which lends …
