Reflections On Critical Librarianship And Creating A Controlled Vocabulary, Olivia Smith Jun 2021

Reflections On Critical Librarianship And Creating A Controlled Vocabulary, Olivia Smith

Sandbox Series

During the summer of 2020, several members of the Cardozo Law Library collaborated to create a controlled vocabulary (CV) for LARC, our institutional repository. During the creation of this CV, there was no explicit intention to consider critical librarianship teachings while making decisions about what words “belonged” in the CV nor in drafting policies relating to the CV. This presentation will reflect on how beginning the project with critical librarianship in mind may have impacted the CV and will attempt to consider changes to the current policies to mitigate biases that are undoubtedly embedded in the CV as it stands.

Automation Using Metadata Filters & Leveraging Research Assistants, Rachel Evans, Savanna Nolan

Sandbox Series

The first sandbox session will feature Rachel Evans, Metadata Services & Special Collections Librarian, and Savanna Nolan, Faculty & Instructional Services Librarian, from UGA Law Library: As part of larger efforts university-wide to highlight diversity leading up to the 60th anniversary of desegregation at UGA, the law school focused on identifying materials including photographs, class directors and news articles related to the school's earliest minority graduates. Although a physical exhibit began to take shape in the summer of 2020, limited building access presented challenges in sharing aspects of the exhibit with the community. Rachel and Savanna will share the method they ...

A Review Of Grey Literature Cited By Food Loss Law And Policy Scholarship, Angela Hackstadt Mar 2021

A Review Of Grey Literature Cited By Food Loss Law And Policy Scholarship, Angela Hackstadt

University Libraries Faculty Scholarship

In the United States, state and federal programs, rules, and legislation attempt to address the social, economic, and environmental impacts of food waste. Research on the efficacy of these interventions rely on a variety of grey literature resources. Grey literature is valuable to policy research but may be overlooked because it is not published commercially and is often deemed unauthoritative. This review focuses on the use of grey literature in food waste law and policy scholarship to identify the most used sources and to determine what, if any, archiving strategies authors use. Recommendations for librarians and researchers are discussed.

Student Services Town Hall: Inspiration From A Distance, Kimberly Mattioli, Geraldine Kalim, Edna Lewis Jan 2021

Student Services Town Hall: Inspiration From A Distance, Kimberly Mattioli, Geraldine Kalim, Edna Lewis

Articles by Maurer Faculty

Drawing on inspiration and the creativity of others has long been a hallmark of the Student Services Librarian. Never before, however, have we needed each other quite as much as we have during this wild ride of an academic year. Motivated both by a desire to bring us all together and out of our own need to find inspiration, the three of us hatched a plan to host a Student Services Town Hall.

We purposely scheduled the event far enough into the semester that some of us could report on successful (and not-so-successful) attempts to continue Student Services work during ...

Geographical Indications In India: Present Scenario, Rajiv M. Patel Mr, Lavji N. Zala Dr.

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Geographical Indication (GI) has developed as a significant type of Intellectual Property Rights issue in India.

Wrangling Weirdness: Lessons Learned From Academic Law Library Collections, Courtney Mcallister, Megan Brown Oct 2020

Wrangling Weirdness: Lessons Learned From Academic Law Library Collections, Courtney Mcallister, Megan Brown

Charleston Library Conference

Academic law libraries face some challenges that are consistent with larger trends in higher education. However, there are unique aspects that shape the way collections are selected, evaluated, managed, and promoted. Most electronic resources designed for legal research do not generate COUNTER compliant usage data. Many subscription resources and services that libraries provide access to are primarily geared towards non-academic customers, such as law firms and corporations. Patrons increasingly need and request research products that rely on data collection, personalization, and non-IP access controls, which complicates law librarians’ professional commitment to things like preserving patron privacy and providing walk-in access ...

May It Please The Court: A Longitudinal Study Of Judicial Citation To Academic Legal Periodicals, Brian T. Detweiler

Law Librarian Journal Articles

Part I of this article examines the proportion of reported opinions from U.S. federal and state courts between 1945 and 2018 that cite at least one academic legal periodical, while Part II applies that data beginning in 1970 to compare the proportion of opinions that cite to the flagship journals of 17 law schools selected and hierarchically categorized based on their U.S. News & World Reports rankings. Representing the most elite schools are Harvard Law Review and Yale Law Journal, the two longest running student-edited journals at arguably the two most prestigious law schools in the United States, followed ...

Balancing Our Brains: Apps For Avoiding Bandwidth Overload, Geraldine R. Kalim, Rachel S. Evans

Articles, Chapters and Online Publications

Amidst the rush and worry many librarians around the world felt as we scrambled earlier this year to set up physical spaces to work from home, at the University of Georgia Law Library we were fortunate to have several task boards, project management spaces, and apps for communication already in motion. Individuals and small teams had been using various platforms for years to collaborate more effectively and track progress on longterm objectives, all while maintaining business as usual. In this article we put our recent and personal experiences to use, giving context for why and how four tools can be ...

Intentional Professional Development In Changing Times, Maggie Kiel-Morse Oct 2020

Intentional Professional Development In Changing Times, Maggie Kiel-Morse

Articles by Maurer Faculty

I recently participated in the AALL Leadership Academy, held virtually on August 6, 7, and 14. The Leadership Academy has a reputation for fostering core leadership skills, and enhancing key tools and strategies for effective leadership, while also providing excellent networking opportunities for participants. I was excited and grateful to be accepted to participate, and to receive a grant from ALL-SIS. When the change to a virtual format was announced, I had some reservations about continuing to participate. Ultimately, I decided that whatever the format, the opportunities for professional growth offered by the Leadership Academy were too good to pass ...

How Intelligent Ci Instruction Gives Law Students A Competitive Edge, Heather Simmons, Beau Steenken, Liz Whittington, Joshua Pluta Jul 2020

How Intelligent Ci Instruction Gives Law Students A Competitive Edge, Heather Simmons, Beau Steenken, Liz Whittington, Joshua Pluta

Presentations

"Competitive intelligence" (CI) is a term that gets bandied about across many sectors, but how exactly do law firms use it to further their business? Academics are aware of CI as a concept, but teaching students how to conduct competitive intelligence requires a more nuanced understanding of how it is actually used. In a discussion moderated by a newer academic librarian who will be teaching competitive intelligence for the first time, a firm librarian will share insights into how competitive intelligence can and should be used, and an academic librarian who regularly teaches competitive intelligence will offer tips on how ...


Data, Stats, Go: Navigating The Intersections Of Cataloging, E-Resource, And Web Analytics Reporting, Rachel S. Evans, Wendy Moore, Jessica Pasquale, Andre Davison Jul 2020

Data, Stats, Go: Navigating The Intersections Of Cataloging, E-Resource, And Web Analytics Reporting, Rachel S. Evans, Wendy Moore, Jessica Pasquale, Andre Davison

Presentations

Do you trudge through gathering statistics at fiscal or calendar year-end? Do you wonder why you track certain things, thinking many seem outdated or irrelevant? Many places seem to keep counting certain statistics because "that's what they've always done." For e-resources, how do you integrate those with physical counts and reconcile the variations (updated e-resources versus re-cataloged physical items)? What about repository downloads and other web traffic? The quantity of stats that libraries track is staggering and keeps growing. This program will encourage attendees to stop and evaluate what and why they're gathering data and help identify ...
