    Abstract:

    The iconic Hesburgh Library building was nearing its 50th anniversary when review of the facilities program began in advance of renovation planning. This talk centers on graduate student workspaces, in particular closed study carrels that were characterized as ‘mop closets’ by some occupants. In 2013, review of existing data and feedback informed the initial planning for renovation of one tower floor in the library and its graduate student spaces. Through a series of focus groups, ope…

    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…

Are you still storing 17 drafts of that paper you completed, turned in, edited, resubmitted and received a final grade on years ago because you don’t remember which paper-final-final-final.doc is the actual final copy?

    If yes is the answer to any of these questio…

    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…

    Ruth Kitchin Tillman
    Abstract:

    When describing unique or local materials, librarians and archivists often create high-quality metadata which then gets stored in collection-specific silos. The systems we use often make reuse difficult, even when the metadata might apply to other materials. I will be talking about a project conducted at the NASA Goddard Library to extract local authorities from one collection of objects in a Fedora repository, then create a localized authority reconciliation service, and finally apply the au…
