  • Abstract:

    Just as silly messages get distorted when playing the classic game of “telephone,” scientific research can get distorted when it goes from a scholarly publication to university press release and then out to the popular media. This activity asks students to trace a scientific claim back to the original source while evaluating what distortions may have been introduced in the process.

    Abstract:

    The presenters will outline efforts to create a unified discovery platform for digital collections from libraries, archives, and museums. They will guide attendees through the process of designing harmonized metadata profiles for these related but very different domains, including solutions for conciliating controlled vocabularies. They will discuss the software stack’s approach to moving the harmonized data from varied back-end systems to a singular point from which they build out multiple s…

  • Abstract:

    The Introduction of the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education encourages teaching faculty to design “curricula and assignments that foster enhanced engagement with the core ideas about information and scholarship within their disciplines.” However, disciplinary faculty are often unsure how to facilitate student engagement with information literacy in an effective way and may not even be aware that they are communicating these concepts to their students. Librarians have an o…

    Abstract:

    The FAIR Hackathon Workshop for Mathematics and the Physical Sciences (MPS) February 27-28, 2019 in Alexandria, Virginia brought together forty-four stakeholders in the physical sciences community to share skills, tools and techniques to FAIRify research data. As one of the first efforts of its kind in the US, the workshop offered participants a way to engage with FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) Data and metrics in the context of a hackathon. The workshop wa…

    Abstract:

    In recent years, the Hesburgh Libraries at the University of Notre Dame have developed and sustained a partnership with our campus student wellness center (The McDonald Center for Student Well-Being - aka “McWell”) that includes several programs designed to promote overall physical, mental and emotional health for our users and our library staff. Our partnership began in 2016 with the introduction of McWell’s “Let’s Talk” service (https://ucc.nd.edu/lets-talk/), which is a program d…

    Abstract:

    Since the publication of the “FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship” (Wilkinson et al., 2016), a wide-variety of sciences, mathematics, and other data-intensive fields have utilized the principles to promote reusability of data and ensure the long-term preservation of valuable outputs. In particular, domain experts and leading researchers have organized hackathons and sprints to define FAIR for their specific domains. Similarly, these domain experts have creat…

    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:

    The process of moving digitized and born-digital materials from selection to recovery, discovery, and preservation, was ambiguous at Notre Dame, as a “favor system” had become the norm. To address the issue, the Digital Collections Workflow (DCW) team, comprised of individuals from units across the library, developed workflows based on representative and adaptable use cases. This collaborative process, fueled by shared experience, resulted in a low- tech “case manager” approach that ensures p…

    Abstract:

    Many U.S. academic libraries offer programming during final exams, in an attempt to relieve students’ stress. Despite the reported success of library de-stress programs, students often have little input in planning these activities. For the academic years 2015-16 and 2016-17, the authors allowed students to come up with their own de-stress program ideas. To solicit students’ ideas, the authors used a two-round idea generation and voting process, using whiteboards placed in public spaces in th…

    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…
