  1. Library IT Projects As Drivers Of Organizational Change

    Vinopal, Jennifer
    The "apartness" of Library IT within the modern research library is related to the kinds of mythologizing, stereotyping, and storytelling about both IT and libraries that we see in popular culture and reproduce in our own settings. Even as we continually rethink "the research library for the 21st century," these mental models can prevent the change we want to see. This talk explores the possibilities for rethinking IT and library initiatives to advance a more holistic, systemic way of understanding, envisioning, and accomplishing our work together.

  2. Strengthening the Small Library: Creating Opportunities for Archives Development

    Schneider, Tina; Cleary, Calvin
    Academic libraries naturally support the people and programs at their home institution. For many libraries, however, another area of that support involves collaboration with and outreach to the general public. There are many ways an academic library can work with local organizations. These partnerships are often referred to as “town-and-gown” relationships, and they can give both communities access to services and materials they may not otherwise be able to afford. Town-and-gown relationships can bring new kinds of patrons and recognition to campus or enable financial support for large, shared projects. In small or rural communities where resources are not necessarily...

  3. Research Needs and Learning Format Preferences of Graduate Students at a Large Public University: An Exploratory Study

    Bussell, Hilary; Hagman, Jessica; Guder, Christopher S.
    This article reports on a study of research needs and learning preferences of graduate students at a public research university. A sequential exploratory mixed-method design was used, with a survey instrument developed from an initial qualitative stage. Significant differences were found between master’s and doctoral students’ and on-campus and online students’ confidence with several research skills. Graduate students overall prefer asynchronous online options and in-person workshops over synchronous online instruction and in-class presentations for learning research skills. The article concludes with a discussion of the value of the sequential exploratory mixed-method design for informing practice at an individual institution.

  4. Microelectrochemical Characterization of the Effect of Rare Earth Inhibitors on the Localized Corrosion of AA2024-T3

    Li, Jichao; Hurley, Belinda; Buchheit, Rudolph
    The inhibition effect of three rare earth metals (REMs), Ce3+, La3+ and Pr3+, on the electrochemical properties of synthesized single-phase intermetallic compounds (IMCs) representing phases commonly found in AA2024-T3 were studied and compared with chromate inhibition. REM additions had little effect on corrosion potential, pitting potential and icorr in short-term tests. This is in contrast to effects observed with chromate inhibitor additions where the pitting potential was seen to increase dramatically. All three REMs decreased the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) kinetics on each synthesized phase, but none as much as chromate. The results in these studies are consistent with the idea that inhibition by REMs...

  5. Inhibition Performance Study of Vanadate on AA2024-T3 at High Temperature by SEM, FIB, Raman and XPS

    Li, Jichao; Hurley, Belinda; Buchheit, Rudolph
    The inhibition of AA2024-T3 by vanadate at temperatures ranging from 10◦ to 80◦C was studied using various characterization techniques. SEM showed that in the presence of vanadate, no corrosion was observed on any intermetallic particles, including the reactive Al2CuMg (S phase) at temperatures up to 50◦C. Although trenching occurred around the S phase particles when solution temperature increased to 70◦C and above, S phase was protected by vanadate-bearing film. Raman spectroscopy showed a peak indicating polymeric vanadate, which increased in intensity with increasing temperature with the highest intensity at 80◦C. The high vanadium concentration at 80◦C was attributed to fast reduction reaction kinetics of vanadate...

  6. Unlocking the Interlibrary Loan Code for the United States

    Baich, Tina; Dethloff, Nora; Miller, Brian
    A newly revised Interlibrary Loan Code for the United States was approved in 2016, the 100th anniversary of its first appearance. This article outlines the 2-year, iterative revision process undertaken by the ALA RUSA STARS Codes, Guidelines, and Technical Standards Committee, including the results of two public surveys and significant changes to the Interlibrary Loan Code for the United States. The authors hope to provide a template for future revisions and share the process with the entire interlibrary loan community.

  7. From Training to Learning: Developing Student Employees Through Experiential Learning Design

    Bussell, Hilary; Hagman, Jessica
    In this chapter, the authors argue for moving student employee training programs beyond a sole focus on training students for effective service, to training based on experiential learning (EL) principles. The authors describe the development of an experiential approach for two student positions in the Ohio University Libraries’ social media and video production work. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the challenges in this approach, and addresses issues of scaling the model to larger student employment programs.

  8. Assessing Librarian Expectations Before and After LibGuides Implementation

    Anderson, Katie E.; Springs, Gene R.
    This study evaluated librarian expectation and experience before and after the implementation of the LibGuides platform at an ARL member institution. Two surveys were distributed to librarians responsible for subject research guides, one to determine expectations before the introduction of LibGuides and one to determine if and how those expectations were or were not met following adoption of the platform. Findings indicate that, after implementation, LibGuides were updated more often and used more frequently for both instruction and reference than the previously used subject guides. This study can aid other libraries in planning similar implementations of LibGuides at their institutions.

  9. Write up! A Study of Copyright Information on Library-Published Journals

    Schlosser, Melanie
    INTRODUCTION Libraries have a mission to educate users about copyright, and library publishing staff are often involved in that work. This article investigates a concrete point of intersection between the two areas - copyright statements on library-published journals. METHODS Journals published by members of the Library Publishing Coalition were examined for open access status, type and placement of copyright information, copyright ownership, and open licensing. RESULTS Journals in the sample were overwhelmingly (93%) open access. 80% presented copyright information of some kind, but only 30% of those included it at both the journal and the article level. Open licensing was...

  10. Trusted Librarian: Service Model Offers Best Practices for New Subject Librarians

    Franks, Tina P.
    As we compete in the global market of information providers, librarians can advance by better understanding how corporations conduct business and provide services. According to the principles discussed in The Trusted Advisor (Maister, Green, & Galford, 2000), constituents may value trust more than discipline expertise. Business books often discuss trust building, which is viewed as a necessity for building professional success. Discipline expertise is a valuable commodity, but librarians who fail to build trust with constituents may struggle to engage them. This is a best practices piece that identifies successful trust-building techniques that foster relationships between librarian and constituent.

  15. Learning Style Dimensions and Professional Characteristics of Academic Librarians

    Rinehart, Amanda; Sharkey, Jennifer; Kahl, Chad
    Do librarians with different characteristics, such as type of work responsibilities or age, have different learning styles? The authors analyzed results from over 1,500 responses to a version of the Index of Learning Styles (ILS) questionnaire based on the Felder-Silverman Learning Styles model. This model consists of eight dimensions paired on four scales: Active/Reflective; Sensing/Intuitive; Visual/Verbal; and Sequential/Global. In addition to their scores on the ILS questionnaire, respondents were also asked about demographic and professional characteristics. Statistically significant differences in learning style scores were found to exist between librarians with different types of position responsibilities. In particular, for three out...

    Black, Elizabeth L.
    This article makes the case for librarians to engage with second-year students as part of the burgeoning movement in higher education to provide dedicated programming and experiences for second-year students. Grounded in development theories and transition theory, the article describes the special needs characteristic of typical second-year students and how librarians can build on the excellent work in first-year programs to collaborate with campus colleagues to further information literacy instruction.

  20. Maximizing your campus connections: Advancing research development through library partnerships

    Sadvari, Joshua
    Breaking down silos to create an atmosphere conducive to collaboration is a challenge for any institution but especially for highly decentralized research universities. University libraries are a natural point of connection for researchers across disciplines since library resources and services enable their work. By building strong partnerships between library faculty/staff and research development professionals (RDPs), both groups are better able to support their common goal of fostering interdisciplinary research collaborations. At The Ohio State University, the University Libraries is creating a Research Commons that leverages campus partnerships to provide support at each stage of the research lifecycle through consultations, education and...
