Collaborative Policy Writing For The Umass Amherst Data Repository, Thea P. Atwood, Ann Kardos

Ann Kardos

Policy plays an important role in articulating the scope of a repository. As UMass Amherst grows its data repository, it is evident that policies around what is acceptable to deposit, the roles librarians and libraries take, and workflows around data deposit are important stepping stones for communication and expectation management. In this talk, Thea Atwood, Data Services Librarian, and Ann Kardos, Metadata Librarian, will discuss the establishment of the data repository, the individuals and groups that support the data repository, and the group’s approach to writing policy that is responsive and flexible.

Organizational Learning In Libraries At For-Profit Colleges And Universities, Julie Evener

Education Collection

Despite successful application of organizational learning to enhance services in academic libraries, little is known about organizational learning in libraries of for-profit colleges and universities (FPCUs). A quantitative online survey, followed by qualitative interviews, served to assess and explore the use of organizational learning in libraries at FPCUs. Data reflected medium to high levels of organizational learning in the libraries studied, as well as a negative relationship between organizational learning and number of students enrolled. Common themes in the interview responses included external pressures from the FPCUs making it more difficult to implement organizational learning, and the importance of communication ...

Information Literacy At The Intersection Of Scholarly Communications And Social Justice, Sarah Appedu Jun 2019

Information Literacy At The Intersection Of Scholarly Communications And Social Justice, Sarah Appedu

Musselman Library Staff Publications

Undergraduate outreach about Open Access (OA) lies at the intersection of information literacy and Scholarly Communications. Reframing undergraduates as current and future scholars allows us to treat them as agents within the Scholarly Communications network. Students who have mastered fundamental research skills are prepared to view them through the critical lens of Scholarly Communications in order to learn both how to locate resources and how those resources are created. This educational approach highlights the various barriers scholars can face in the research process, as well as provides an awareness of information privilege.

This poster will provide a model for how ...

Climate Change Conversations In Libraries: Stabilizing Ourselves And Our Communities, Madeleine K. Charney Jun 2019

Climate Change Conversations In Libraries: Stabilizing Ourselves And Our Communities, Madeleine K. Charney

Madeleine K. Charney

In this American Library Association preconference in Washington, D.C., a group of ~35 librarians explored the “wicked problem” of climate change in a convivial World Café setting. Together we faced our fears and identified our strengths, leadership and creativity in relationship to climate disruption. Because this disruption has significant impacts on our communities’ mental health, we learned a variety of practices to ground ourselves and find deeper meaning day-to-day. From this place of stability, we can better educate and serve our patrons -- now and in more troubled times.

Summoning The Ghosts: Records As Agents In Community Archives, Jessica Tai, Jimmy Zavala, Joyce Gabiola, Gracen Brilmyer, Michelle Caswell Jun 2019

Summoning The Ghosts: Records As Agents In Community Archives, Jessica Tai, Jimmy Zavala, Joyce Gabiola, Gracen Brilmyer, Michelle Caswell

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

Although records have traditionally been defined by their physical form, our research reveals that records documenting marginalized communities disrupt these limiting definitions by surfacing the ways that community members conceive of the agency of records. Based on focus groups we conducted with fifty-four community members at five different Southern California–based community archives, this paper examines how community archives users conceive of records as agents, embodied with the voices of past lives, and capable of facilitating meaning for those who access, activate, and interpret them. In our findings, users of community archives not only surfaced the notion of records as ...

Navigating The Sustainable Stream: Academic Libraries Keeping Pace With Streaming Content Demand, Joshua Keyes, Elsa Loftis

Elsa Loftis

With increasing student and faculty expectations of on-demand streaming video content, how are academic libraries keeping pace with costs and licensing models? As the common access models for video add additional subscriptions to the mix or feature Patron-Driven Acquisition (PDA) options that escalate costs as usage increases, collections librarians must perform a precarious balancing act to ensure vital information resources are available at sustainable cost levels. We will share the recent experiences of The Claremont Colleges Library and Portland State University Library, and how our models have adapted to meet growing demands on our budgets and staff time. This is ...

Dismantle Your Electronic Resources Fund! Applying The Power Of Faceted Classification To Acquisitions Budget Management., Maria Savova, Jason S. Price

Maria Savova

Effective collection management and funding advocacy require that academic library materials budgets reflect the complexity of their underlying acquisitions. We introduce a faceted budget structure that addresses acquisition mode, material type, material format, and discipline in each fund - thereby empowering budget transparency, reliable ongoing spending control, and accurate long-term planning.
