The Work Of An Hour, Michael F. Russo Etc. Jan 2020

The Work Of An Hour, Michael F. Russo Etc.

Faculty Publications

This research asks two basic questions: 1) To what extent was the Bush administration’s pro-war propaganda repeated, amplified, and ultimately reported as fact by main stream news agencies? and 2) Is there any correlation between the repetition of the propaganda and popular support for the invasion of Iraq? In other words, can we say news reports helped “sell” the war?


How Did You Code “I'M Really Confident That I Can Find The Exact Ikea Pillow”?: Creating An Effective Codebook As A Team, Andrea Hebert Mar 2019

How Did You Code “I'M Really Confident That I Can Find The Exact Ikea Pillow”?: Creating An Effective Codebook As A Team, Andrea Hebert

Faculty Publications

The subject librarian for Louisiana State University’s School of Library & Information Science designed a short survey that included open-ended questions to explore the self-efficacy of graduating MLIS students. The librarian asked a graduating MLIS student to participate in the study as a co-investigator. The survey results were imported into Dedoose, a web-based application, which allowed the co-investigators to collaborate at a distance for qualitative coding and analysis. Although teams of researchers often create the initial codebook collaboratively, the co-investigators in this study each created individual codebooks using inductive coding, which draws themes from data. After the co-investigators completed their ...


More Than A Pretty Interface: The Louisiana Digital Library As A Data Hub, Scott Ziegler, Cara M. Key Sep 2018

More Than A Pretty Interface: The Louisiana Digital Library As A Data Hub, Scott Ziegler, Cara M. Key

Faculty Publications

The Louisiana Digital Library (LDL) is an online platform for libraries, museums, archives, and historical organizations across the state. The books, manuscripts, oral histories, maps, and photographs held in the LDL showcase the cultural resources of Louisiana.

The metadata about these items is also a great asset. When explored in their entirety, the data held in the LDL is as valuable as the digital facsimiles. This talk will explore the LDL as a data hub, a place to gather and share the metadata of the participating institutions. Open data is a growing trend in archives and special collections, enabling new ...

Digitization On A Budget, Cara M. Key, Zachary G. Stein, Cheylon K. Woods Mar 2018

Digitization On A Budget, Cara M. Key, Zachary G. Stein, Cheylon K. Woods

Faculty Publications

Archives and libraries are seen as public hubs of information on demand. As expectations for digital information grows, it is imperative that archives and libraries strive to accommodate users' growing needs for effective online access, while ensuring the longevity of digitized and born-digital primary sources. There is still a struggle for digital access to archival and special collections; many factors, such as time, funds, and administrative support limit the digitization of archival collections. None of these things have to be a real hindrance to digital migration and preservation. In this presentation, we will explore "DIY" ways to establish a functioning ...

The Process Of A Completed Digitization Project: Ingest, Cara M. Key, William W. Conlin

Faculty Publications

As physical archival materials age and begin to degrade, there is a push to digitize for further access so that the originals can be better preserved. By making digital collections available online, scholarship is made more widely known. This workshop covers the process of completing successful digitization projects. The presentations will include selecting and evaluating materials to digitize, scanning and appropriate formats, ingesting digital surrogates for accessibility, storage and preservation, and copyright issues for digitized materials. Through lecture and discussion, participants will gain insight into what digitization projects entail so they can expand on their institutions' digitization programs. They will ...

#Nodapl: Social Media, Empowerment, And Civic Participation At Standing Rock, Hayley Johnson Oct 2017

#Nodapl: Social Media, Empowerment, And Civic Participation At Standing Rock, Hayley Johnson

Faculty Publications

The struggle for environmental and social justice within American Indian communities is one that has been ongoing since the beginning of United States history, but the main catalyst to effect change and to promote and disperse the American Indian narrative has emerged through the power of social media in today's hyperconnected society. This article examines the power of social media to effect change, as well as a hyperconnected society's ability to empower historically disadvantaged groups that have often been misrepresented within traditional media outlets. The historic movement occurring at Standing Rock, North Dakota, and the #NoDAPL protests illustrates ...

How Little Is Too Little? An Examination Of Information Literacy Instruction Duration For Freshmen, Dauterive Sarah, Bourgeois John, Sarah Simms

Faculty Publications

This study focuses on librarian-led classes within an introductory seminar course for first-year undergraduates and whether the length of information literacy sessions affects student learning. The authors question how much library interaction is actually beneficial for students? At what point do the returns plateau? With limited resources, what is the most efficient means of reaching students in-person?

Cognitive Phenotypes And The Evolution Of Animal Decisions, Tamra C. Mendelson, Courtney L. Fitzpatrick, Mark E. Hauber, Charles H. Pence, Rafael L. Rodríguez, Rebecca J. Safran, Caitlin A. Stern, Jeffrey R. Stevens Jan 2016

Cognitive Phenotypes And The Evolution Of Animal Decisions, Tamra C. Mendelson, Courtney L. Fitzpatrick, Mark E. Hauber, Charles H. Pence, Rafael L. Rodríguez, Rebecca J. Safran, Caitlin A. Stern, Jeffrey R. Stevens

Faculty Publications

Despite the clear fitness consequences of animal decisions, the science of animal decision making in evolutionary biology is underdeveloped compared with decision science in human psychology. Specifically, the field lacks a conceptual framework that defines and describes the relevant components of a decision, leading to imprecise language and concepts. The ‘judgment and decision-making’ (JDM) framework in human psychology is a powerful tool for framing and understanding human decisions, and we apply it here to components of animal decisions, which we refer to as ‘cognitive phenotypes’. We distinguish multiple cognitive phenotypes in the context of a JDM framework and highlight empirical ...
