From Responsible Custody To Responsible Stewardship, Michelle Light 2019 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

From Responsible Custody To Responsible Stewardship, Michelle Light

Library Faculty Publications

Light analyzes "responsible custody," one of eleven core values of archivists as described by the Society of American Archivists. After reviewing professional literature about postcustodial debates in the electronic records environment, advocacy for cultural sensitivity in native or colonial archives, and new models for stewardship associated with the community archives movement, Light proposes to revise this core value as "responsible stewardship."

Organizational Aesthetics

Abstract

In September 2017 Room 2084 was installed at London College of Communication (LCC) to display a selection of objects from the personal archives and collections of staff and students in the Design School during the London Design Festival.

The aim of this display was to examine the role such objects play in the research and practice of the school and how these relate to the collection policies of the institution’s archives and special collections. To this end ‘trials’ were held throughout the duration of the show where members of staff would ‘defend’ their objects to a ‘jury’ who ...

Availability Of Public Library And Community Support For Patrons With Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Survey Of Coastal Mississippi Libraries, Tammy L. White

SLIS Connecting

While a growing number of libraries are beginning to provide programs for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), there is still a need for more, and there is a need for staff to become more aware of the types of behavior that are associated with ASD so as provide a better understanding of how to create programs.The purpose of this research is to evaluate the availability of ASD programs and community support among public libraries in Mississippi’s coastal region.


Spanish Literature In Mississippi: A Collection Analysis Of Spanish And Spanish‐Bilingual Books In Mississippi Public Libraries, Marisela Madrigal 2019 The University of Southern Mississippi

Spanish Literature In Mississippi: A Collection Analysis Of Spanish And Spanish‐Bilingual Books In Mississippi Public Libraries, Marisela Madrigal

SLIS Connecting

Mississippi, while it may be considered a rural area, contains cities along the Gulf of Mexico and other regions throughout the state that have a diverse population, which includes Hispanics. Libraries must be receptive to the communities they serve and must be aware of community demographics so that they may provide the necessary resources to accommodate them. The objective of this study is to analyze the availability of Spanish and Spanish bilingual literature.


Adolescent Minorities In Popular Ya Literature: A Content Analysis, Morgan Lee 2019 The University of Southern Mississippi

Adolescent Minorities In Popular Ya Literature: A Content Analysis, Morgan Lee

SLIS Connecting

Young adults are typically one of the most difficult target audiences for public libraries. Representation is important ‐ if a young reader cannot relate to the main character, they are likely not to care about what happens to them.The purpose of this study is to conduct a content analysis of popular YA novels published over the past decade to determine how often minorities are portrayed and how this portrayal has developed over time.

Post-Custodial And Collaborative: A Primer For Memory Institutions Beginning Digital Archiving Projects, Lindsey Memory 2019 Brigham Young University

Post-Custodial And Collaborative: A Primer For Memory Institutions Beginning Digital Archiving Projects, Lindsey Memory

Faculty Publications

This paper reviews the three major types of digital archiving projects: memory institutions’ digital archiving projects, community-based archiving, and personal digital archiving. An examination of some common challenges and opportunities present in most of these projects-- particularly any in the post-custodial model-- follows, with illustrative examples of various digital archiving projects. This paper may serve as a primer for memory institutional staff wishing to understand the landscape of digital archiving projects, both within and without the authoritative, disciplined approach most commonly taken by memory institutions.

The Archival Challenges And Choices Of A Small Non-Profit Organization Attempting To Preserve Its Unique Past, Mattias Olshausen 2019 Central Washington University

The Archival Challenges And Choices Of A Small Non-Profit Organization Attempting To Preserve Its Unique Past, Mattias Olshausen

Journal of Western Archives

Holden, located in Washington’s Cascade Mountains above the West side of Lake Chelan, originated as a copper-mining company town in 1937. In 1960, three years after the operation shut down, it was transformed into a non-profit Lutheran retreat center, now known as Holden Village. Both the mining and Lutheran communities have generated substantial archival collections, the three largest of which are currently housed at the University of Washington, Pacific Lutheran University, and Holden itself. Making use of finding aids, reports and summaries written by past and present Holden archivists, and the personal recollections of former residents, this paper traces ...

Volume 25 Issue 1 Introduction, Rachel Zill

OLA Quarterly

The issue of OLAQ that you currently hold in your—er—computer screen focuses on the “future organization of things.” I titled this issue not out of laziness or a lack of eloquence, but because I did not want to reduce our work to mind-numbing and siloed verbiage such as cataloging, technical services, metadata, and the long string of jargon that our job titles have become. I wanted this issue to approach current developments and future concerns of technical library work with an ease only accomplished by consulting the humble, articulate colleagues present in this state.

This issue begins with ...


The Future Of Cataloging (For The Rest Of Us): Forecasting For Production-Level Cataloging, Lori Van Deman 2019 Cedar Mill & Bethany Community Libraries

The Future Of Cataloging (For The Rest Of Us): Forecasting For Production-Level Cataloging, Lori Van Deman

OLA Quarterly

For decades, catalogers have lived in a place of change. We’ve been in a nearly continual shift ever since library catalogs moved to digital environments, and before that as concepts and new formats emerged. In the past, many of these changes have taken years or decades to implement locally, let alone implement on a national or global scale. Our era in cataloging is no different. The implementation of RDA, the shift away from the MARC record, and increasing interest in linked data (among myriad other factors) are beginning to coalesce into a discernible future. This is an exceptional time ...

Beyond The Subject: Non-Topical Facets For Exploration And Discovery, Kelley Mcgrath

OLA Quarterly

New developments in the cataloging world can help libraries better answer questions like: What music do you have for string quartets? What young adult fiction do you have by African American male authors? Do you have any diaries written by pioneer women in Oregon in the late nineteenth century? Do you have any recent movies from China?

Historically, the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) have included terms both for what something is about (topic) and for what something is (genre or form). Many users are looking for something either as a topic, or as a genre or form, and ...
