A Few Thoughts On Evidence In Social Work, Gary Holden, Ellen Tuchman, Kathleen Barker, Gary Rosenberg, May, Sofie Kuppens, Katie Watson Jan 2012

A Few Thoughts On Evidence In Social Work, Gary Holden, Ellen Tuchman, Kathleen Barker, Gary Rosenberg, May, Sofie Kuppens, Katie Watson

Publications and Research

Social work practitioners must act every working day in the face of uncertainty. This uncertainty arises in part because knowledge is often difficult to locate or sometimes lacking regarding: the systems context the population being served; the particular client system; the set of problems the client system is experiencing; as well as the various interventions that could be selected. It seems reasonable to explore ways to reduce the experience of uncertainty, and narrow, if not eliminate, the knowledge gaps that arise in such situations. The generic idea of evidence based practice has been advanced for some time as an approach ...

Recruiting Content For The Institutional Repository: The Barriers Exceed The Benefits, Denise Troll Covey Dec 2010

Recruiting Content For The Institutional Repository: The Barriers Exceed The Benefits, Denise Troll Covey

Denise Troll Covey

Focus groups conducted at Carnegie Mellon reveal that what motivates many faculty to self-archive on a website or disciplinary repository will not motivate them to deposit their work in the institutional repository. Recruiting a critical mass of content for the institutional repository is contingent on increasing awareness, aligning deposit with existing workflows, and providing value-added services that meet needs not currently being met by other tools. Faculty share concerns about quality and the payoff for time invested in publishing and disseminating their work, but disagree about metrics for assessing quality, the merit of disseminating work prior to peer review, and ...


Open Access And Library Resources Compete In Importance, Denise Troll Covey, Janel Sutkus Dec 2010

Open Access And Library Resources Compete In Importance, Denise Troll Covey, Janel Sutkus

Denise Troll Covey

Few assessments of academic library value have included the value of open access resources, despite widespread agreement that dramatic changes in the scholarly landscape challenge the library's relevance and viability. This paper reports on faculty and graduate student perceptions of the relative importance of various resources to particular teaching and research activities. Open access resources compete in importance with full-text digital resources provided by the library. Both are more important to research than teaching, but open access resources are the most important resource in some teaching activities.

The Ethics Of Open Access And Copyright Infringement, Denise Troll Covey Jan 2010

The Ethics Of Open Access And Copyright Infringement, Denise Troll Covey

Denise Troll Covey

This paper examines the movement to provide free online (open) access to scholarly journal articles as civil disobedience, a heretical challenge to the orthodox ideology of intellectual property law and the tradition of copyright transfer to a publisher. The legal standing and carefully crafted rhetoric of the heretical leaders enables them to rightfully proclaim that the goals of the open access (OA) movement can be achieved in compliance with U.S. copyright law while exposing conflicting values and problematic assumptions in the law that portend reform. Meanwhile, much of the work that the heretics have made available open access breaches ...

The Ethics Of Open Access To Research: A Call For Civil Disobedience And Moral Courage, Denise Troll Covey

Denise Troll Covey

This article explores the ideological context, official rhetoric, and rank-and-file behavior of authors and publishers in the movement to provide free online (open) access to scholarly journal articles. Analysis reveals transparency among authors and obfuscation among publishers. The core values and ethical principles of librarianship require librarians to stand with authors and to exercise and foster civil disobedience and moral courage in support of open access.

Better Health Sciences Collections With Oclc’S Worldcat, Carol Watwood Jan 2006

Better Health Sciences Collections With Oclc’S Worldcat, Carol Watwood

DLPS Faculty Publications

As the world's largest bibliographic database. OCLC's WorldCat has unique value in identifying materials for building a high-quality health sciences collection. WorldCat on FirstSearch is a valuable addition to the librarian's collection development toolbox to help compensate for the cessation of the Brandon/Hill lists. The database's large size, powerful keyword search feature, currency, and the ability to highlight important information through its interface all contribute to its usefulness in collection development. Several pilot projects and ongoing research in open access, "work-based" record design hold much promise for increased versatility.
