Creating Topical Exhibits In Digital Commons, Linda Tesar 2021 William & Mary Law School

Creating Topical Exhibits In Digital Commons, Linda Tesar

Sandbox Series

When the William & Mary Law School Equity and Inclusion Exhibits Committee decided to begin hosting a series of physical exhibits with online components, the Wolf Law Library staff eagerly offered the scholarship repository as the best place to house the online exhibits collection. In late February, the library launched the first digital exhibit, “Black History at W&M Law.” In this talk, Linda will discuss the repository structure and format W&M chose, how different material was integrated into the collection, and give some insight into what worked and what didn’t.


Reflections On Critical Librarianship And Creating A Controlled Vocabulary, Olivia Smith 2021 Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law

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 2021 University at Albany, State University of New York

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.

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

Library Philosophy and Practice (e-journal)

Student Services Town Hall: Inspiration From A Distance, Kimberly Mattioli, Geraldine Kalim, Edna Lewis 2021 Indiana University Maurer School of Law

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 ...

Wrangling Weirdness: Lessons Learned From Academic Law Library Collections, Courtney McAllister, Megan Brown 2020 Yale University

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 ...
