Communication Across The Electronic Resources Lifecycle: A Survey Of Academic Libraries, Jessica M. Morales, Christina A. Beis 2021 University of Notre Dame

Communication Across The Electronic Resources Lifecycle: A Survey Of Academic Libraries, Jessica M. Morales, Christina A. Beis

Roesch Library Faculty Publications

The objective of this study was to identify common communication issues that arise during the electronic resource lifecycle and identify communication strategies academic libraries are using effectively to manage electronic resources. A survey of academic librarians and staff received 240 responses and included 5-point Likert scale ratings on communication surrounding acquisitions, access, administration, support, evaluation, and renewal at their institutions. The study found that the acquisitions, evaluation, and renewal stages of the lifecycle experienced the most issues in communication, while support had the most positive responses. This article provides further discussion on the communication mechanisms used by academic institutions across ...

New Developments For Journal Package Analysis And Data Visualization, Nat Gustafson-Sundell, Pat Lienemann, Luwis A.R.R. Andradi, Evan Rusch, Jeff Rosamond

Library Services Faculty and Staff Publications

What metrics are most useful for comparing journal packages?

What data visualizations enable the most insight into the value of these packages?

How can libraries produce these kinds of reports, including data visualizations, as efficiently as possible?

Over the last several years at Minnesota State University, Mankato, we have iteratively developed standardized reports for journal collection development, outreach, and academic program support. We previously presented an early version of our package-level analysis reports, where we focused on how to use Tableau for data visualization. Now, we will demonstrate new and improved reports, with new package-level and subject-level metrics leading to ...

  • Replicate methods from a 2019 study of Earth Science researcher citation practices.
  • Calculate programmatically whether researchers in Earth Science rely on a smaller subset of literature than estimated by the 80/20 rule.
  • Determine whether these reproducible citation analysis methods can be used to analyze open access uptake.

Methods: Replicated methods of a prior citation study provide an updated transparent, reproducible citation analysis protocol that can be replicated with Jupyter Notebooks.

Results: This study replicated the prior citation study’s conclusions, and also adapted the author’s methods to analyze the citation practices of Earth Scientists at four institutions ...


Remembering Why: Finding Direction In The Face Of Unsustainable Collections Practices, Megan Barr 2021 Buffalo State

Remembering Why: Finding Direction In The Face Of Unsustainable Collections Practices, Megan Barr

Museum Studies Theses

Shifts in the philosophy and practices that guide museums have changed the way we collect and what we collect. However, professional standards and expectations related to the management and use of those collections have largely remained unaltered. Museum professionals are repeatedly confronted by the impracticality and near impossibility of achieving accepted professional standards when managing collections. It is clear that the profession needs to rethink the practices and policies that shape our daily work assumptions, but where do we begin? Using Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle as a guide, we will rearticulate our purpose and reexamine the practices that get ...


Covid-19 And The Catalyst To Digital: Implications On Collection Development Strategy, Nazimah Ram Nath 2021 Singapore Management University

Covid-19 And The Catalyst To Digital: Implications On Collection Development Strategy, Nazimah Ram Nath

Research Collection Library

The Covid 19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns in various countries had a huge impact on academic institutions and how classes were being conducted and delivered. Online lessons became the new norm. Research needs and undergraduate learning activities also served up new challenges, when libraries shut due to nationwide lockdowns and travel restrictions. Academic libraries have found the need to shift their collection development practices and philosophies to ensure they can support teachers, students and researchers adequately in the short-term and long-term, regardless of geographical boundaries. One of the biggest change for the Singapore Management University library during the pandemic was ...

Mapping Renewal: How An Unexpected Interdisciplinary Collaboration Transformed A Digital Humanities Project, Elise Tanner, Geoffrey Joseph

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Funded by a National Endowment for Humanities (NEH) Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Foundations Grant, the UA Little Rock Center for Arkansas History and Culture’s “Mapping Renewal” pilot project focused on creating access to and providing spatial context to archival materials related to racial segregation and urban renewal in the city of Little Rock, Arkansas, from 1954-1989. An unplanned interdisciplinary collaboration with the UA Little Rock Arkansas Economic Development Institute (AEDI) has proven to be an invaluable partnership.

Featured Speaker: Facilitating Oa Transformation Through Publisher Engagement: The Uc Experience, Ivy Anderson

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Libraries across the globe have been pursuing open access for decades, but until recently, progress has continued to be painfully slow. Transformative open access agreements with publishers have begun to change this, as institutions in Europe and increasingly in the US as well are now negotiating open access agreements with major publishers. By transitioning major journal license expenditures from ‘read access’ to support open access publishing, we can begin to achieve open access at scale, supporting our authors in all of the journals in which they choose to publish. This talk will discuss UC’s experience in negotiating transformative open ...


Awareness And Acceptance Of Emerging Technologies For Extended Information Service Delivery In Academic Libraries In Nigeria, Williams Torubo SAIBAKUMO 2021 Delta State University P.M.B. 1, Abraka

Awareness And Acceptance Of Emerging Technologies For Extended Information Service Delivery In Academic Libraries In Nigeria, Williams Torubo Saibakumo

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Expanding and modernising information services are crucial to the continual existence and patronage of academic libraries in the digital era. Technological evolutions have impelled libraries to incorporate all-encompassing, user-friendly and technology-driven service delivery approaches in academic libraries. Emerging technologies seem to fill this perceived gap. This study brings to light the level of awareness, adoption, preferred and readiness for the incorporation of emerging technologies into academic libraries activities in Nigeria. Amid 18 emerging technologies, adoption is stumpy, only an infinitesimal number (WebOPAC, library website, Cybrary, social media and Institutional repository) considered, and awareness remained high. Technologies like RFID, Integrated Library ...

Measuring Use Of The Academic Print Reference Collection, Jennifer Putnam Davis 2021 Augusta University

Measuring Use Of The Academic Print Reference Collection, Jennifer Putnam Davis

Georgia Library Quarterly

Level of use is a key factor in print reference collection development, but often this is determined by anecdotal observation rather than empirical measures. This is evident by the lack of use studies available in the literature. Yet there is a large presence of literature on weeding the print reference collection to repurpose its space. Managing this collection without assessing use can have negative impacts on both library staff and library users. This article presents a review of the available literature on use studies of print reference collections in academic libraries. Methodology and results of the studies are discussed.

Digital Preservation, Accessibility, And Use Of Electronic Theses And Dissertations In University Libraries In Nigeria, Katamba Abubakar Saka, Abu Yusufu, Rose L. Mommoh 2021 Federal University of Technology, Minna

Digital Preservation, Accessibility, And Use Of Electronic Theses And Dissertations In University Libraries In Nigeria, Katamba Abubakar Saka, Abu Yusufu, Rose L. Mommoh

The Journal of Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This study examined the concepts and aspects of digitization; digital preservation; digital resources; and access to, use of, and challenges posed by electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) in university libraries in six geopolitical zones of Nigeria. It adopted a documentary research approach to highlight a critical examination of the various aspects of digitization (to provide electronic information services) as practiced by various university libraries and some library schools in Nigeria. Print theses and dissertations (T/Ds) are digitized by document scanning or direct text input (alphanumeric characters) into computer systems. Digital resources include e-books, e-journals, ETDs, and other forms of ...
