Meeting The Challenge Of Focused Collection Development At A Federal Regional Depository, Sandra Mcaninch, Heath Martin Dec 2014

Meeting The Challenge Of Focused Collection Development At A Federal Regional Depository, Sandra Mcaninch, Heath Martin

Library Presentations

The University of Kentucky (UK) is participating as a Center of Excellence (COE) for the Works Progress Administration (WPA) and the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) in the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries‘ (ASERL) Collaborative Federal Depository Program (CFDP). This collaborative effort is designed to distribute collection development for all Federal agencies across the entire Southeast.

We will describe how all depositories are working together to ensure that there are at least two complete collections for each federal agency somewhere in the Southeast, and how UK has focused its depository collection development efforts on non-COE agencies.


Encryption And Incrimination: The Evolving States Of Encrypted Drives, Shannon M. Oltmann Dec 2014

Encryption And Incrimination: The Evolving States Of Encrypted Drives, Shannon M. Oltmann

Information Science Faculty Publications

Individuals use encryption to safeguard many valid and legal applications but also to hide illegal activity. Several legal cases have drawn the limits of self-incrimination under the Fifth Amendment regarding providing passwords to access illegal information content,such as child pornography. The cases illustrate that certain knowledge of evidence amounts to a compelling need for access and that a subpoena for hard drive contents is more likely to succeed than requiring a witness to provide a password. Since known documents are not legally protected and biometric data can be compelled as evidence, there is no reason that known digital documents ...

Coming Together: Successful Press, Library, Vendor Content Collaboration: A Case Study, Mary Beth Thomson

Library Presentations

University presses (UP's) are essential to the advancement of our culture and the understanding of our world, and, are just as much at the forefront of publishing innovation as anyone. UP's publish and engage in some of the most essential research across the humanities, sciences and arts, and, also dive in to top-of-mind trending topics. Academic libraries are prized hubs of information, supporting a school's curriculum and the research of its university faculty and students - the foundation of content. In an effort to strengthen its relationship with its host institution library and help promote scholarship, the University ...

Web 2.0 Use And Knowledge Transfer: How Social Media Technologies Can Lead To Organizational Innovation, Namjoo Choi, Kuang-Yuan Huang, Aaron Palmer, Lenore Horowitz Nov 2014

Web 2.0 Use And Knowledge Transfer: How Social Media Technologies Can Lead To Organizational Innovation, Namjoo Choi, Kuang-Yuan Huang, Aaron Palmer, Lenore Horowitz

Information Science Faculty Publications

The concept of Web 2.0 has gained widespread prominence in recent years. The use of Web 2.0 applications on an individual level is currently extensive, and such applications have begun to be implemented by organizations in hopes of boosting collaboration and driving innovation. Despite this growing trend, only a small number of theoretical perspectives are available in the literature that discuss how such applications could be utilized to assist in innovation. In this paper, we propose a theoretical model explicating this phenomenon. We argue that organizational Web 2.0 use fosters the emergence and enhancement of informal networks ...

Your Publication, Your Choice: Choosing The Right Open Access Journal, Carla Cantagallo, Mary Congleton, Susan Foster-Harper, Adrian K. Ho

Generation Open: Researchers' Roles in the Age of Openness

An increasing number of research funders require free public access to the outcomes of funded research. To comply with the requirement, some researchers choose to publish their findings in open access journals. Given that there are so many choices, what should researchers consider when choosing an open access journal to publish?

To celebrate Open Access Week (October 20-26, 2014), the University of Kentucky Libraries hosted a workshop that aimed to help you answer the above question.

Information about open access is available from the University of Kentucky Libraries open access research guide.

Technology Telling Stories: Library Instruction Perspectives From An Information Literacy Librarian And An Archivist, Beth Fuchs, Jaime Marie Burton

Library Presentations

Connecting with today’s undergraduates requires more than just a demonstration of technology, tasks, and procedures – it also requires capturing their imaginations, emotions, and feelings. Telling stories with technology connects real world, tangible experiences with abstract ideas and research methods, therefore getting students to care about what they are researching and invest in not just the topic, but in cultivating their own habits of mind.

Burns Like Dust: 1 House, 8 Collections, 7 Repositories, Ruth E. Bryan Aug 2014

Burns Like Dust: 1 House, 8 Collections, 7 Repositories, Ruth E. Bryan

Library Presentations

This case study is about collection development policies, both on the repository level as well as applying them within individual collections, specifically faculty papers. "Dust" is a metaphor for both the on-the-ground experience of archival appraisal as well as for the “dust” of people’s lives and events that historians are “breathing in” when they work with primary source material (Carol Steedman, Dust: The archive and cultural history, 2002). From the perspective of the cultural value of archives, this “dust” is what we select when we’re transforming a mountain of paper or electronic records into archives.


"Introduction" To Burning Decisions: Case Studies On Appraisal For Access, Ruth E. Bryan Aug 2014

"Introduction" To Burning Decisions: Case Studies On Appraisal For Access, Ruth E. Bryan

Library Presentations

In the United States, archival appraisal has been a key step in providing access to records, largely in response to the bulk of modern organizational records, the gaps in documenting underrepresented individuals and groups, and the shrinking of resources. With Frank Boles moderating and commenting, four archivists describe appraisal decisions that they applied while acquiring or administering large or complex collections and reflect on the selection paradigms that they applied in the decision-making process to enable access.

Multiple Account Identity Deception Detection In Social Media Using Nonverbal Behavior, Michail Tsikerdekis, Sherali Zeadally Aug 2014

Multiple Account Identity Deception Detection In Social Media Using Nonverbal Behavior, Michail Tsikerdekis, Sherali Zeadally

Information Science Faculty Publications

Identity deception has become an increasingly important issue in the social media environment. The case of

blocked users initiating new accounts, often called sockpuppetry, is widely known and past efforts, which have attempted to detect such users, have been primarily based on verbal behavior (e.g., using profile data or lexic al features in text). Although these methods yield a high detection accuracy rate, they are computationally inefficient for the social media environment, which often involves databases with large volumes of data. To date, little attention has been paid to detecting online decep- tion using nonverbal behavior. We present a ...

Using Exploratory Image Searching To Invite Inquiry Into The Student Research Experience, Beth Fuchs Jul 2014

Using Exploratory Image Searching To Invite Inquiry Into The Student Research Experience, Beth Fuchs

Library Presentations

From the student perspective, progress in the research process is made by moving directly from choosing a topic to collecting sources. Developing a focus and identifying interesting questions are often seen as time-wasters and left out of the process entirely, particularly in the case of novice researchers, and yet, research tells us that these are the areas where students tend to struggle the most. How can we introduce students to the idea that before they can find answers, they need to ask questions? This session will introduce the idea of using image searching as a method for helping students who ...
