    Abstract:

    At Hesburgh Libraries at the University of Notre Dame, digitization had been an obscure process: roles and responsibilities were unclear, capacity was opaque, and institutional capabilities were mostly unknown. Collections were being digitized, but many were unclear how to go about it and what the possibilities were. Some characterized what had evolved as a “favor-based” system. To resolve these uncertainties, the Digital Collections Workflow (DCW) Team was established and charged with ensuri…

    Abstract:

    Despite their commitment to serving unique campus populations, academic librarians have been slow to recognize the needs of one large demographic: transfer students. Transfer students often face challenges adjusting to the academic expectations of their new universities, as evidenced by the well-documented initial drop in GPA known as “transfer shock” (Ishitanti, 2008). Incoming transfer students are forced to navigate confusing systems in order to transfer course credits and enroll in course…

    Abstract:

    Confusion and frustration are two of the emotions often felt by undergraduates when they are expected to do library research. They do no know where to start, and are unable to select appropriate terms or sources to search. Furthermore, instructors overestimate the literature research skills of their students. In CHEM 23201, a required one semester course, we introduced a research strategy worksheet as a way to guide students on things to consider when searching the literature. We assumed that…

    Abstract:

    In December of 2014, the University of Notre Dame’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) announced its “Cloud First” strategy. The strategic goal of the initiative is to espouse a technology implementation strategy that lays out a technology adoption strategy with the following order of preferences: 1. Use software provided and hosted by vendors in the cloud, 2. Adopt cloud-based data-centers for implementing what previously had been on-premise solutions, and 3. Reduce local implementations…

    Abstract:

    In summer 2015, I explored the possibility of a Materials Library being built at the University of Notre Dame (ND). The interest for this came from faculty in the Art, Art History, and Design department. In this document many aspects of building such a collection and possible partners and departments on campus that might be interested are identified including ways to acquire materials, possible vendors, recommended readings, ways to organize such a collection, funding, and possible outreach o…

    Abstract:

    Community-Based Research is a collaborative approach to research where academic researchers, community members, and organizations are involved in the development, implementation and dissemination of research. Such projects are often designed to promote positive change in particular areas of the community. Here we report on a two-year old community-based research project through the University of Notre Dame’s Center for Digital Scholarship and Center for Social Concerns. Working with the…

    Abstract:

    Review of the book Using the Mathematics Literature, edited by Kristine K. Fowler, New York, Marcel Dekker, 2004. 389 pp., US $165, ISBN 0-8247-5035-7.

    The book’s major drawback is its price—42 cents per page vs. 19 cents for Tucker and Anderson. However, it is still an important addition to your library’s collection, a relevant resource for undergraduate and graduate student advisors, and perhaps a gift for the new librarian who will be working with your department.
