    Abstract:

    As digital projects have become increasingly common, how can we sustainably evolve our online collection experiences? This panel will consider how responding to user needs can create digital collection projects that maximize limited resources. Each case study will have a different perspective: collection content, knowledge infrastructure, and GLAM collaboration.

    Abstract:

    During the digitization of the Eugene V. Debs correspondence collection, known as the Dear Comrade project, Indiana State University Library project staff developed new procedures for assigning and tracking responsibilities as part of an overall initiative to document local practices. The new work plan enabled multiple people with varying levels of expertise from different library departments to check the quality of scans, create metadata, and upload items using the digital collection managem…

    Abstract:

    Renaissance Society America Annual Conference, April 2020. Postponed due to COVID and delivered virtually on April 2, 2021.

    In 1575, a group of ‘gentildonne’ of Cesena authored a short pamphlet refuting the strict sumptuary laws of their city. The vernacular text presents erudite arguments, citing the works of Plato, Dante, and many others, to argue in support of the necessity of ornamental clothing. The pamphlet was print…

    Abstract:

    Project management as a discipline has been around for decades within such fields as business and manufacturing, however, the library profession has seen slower adoption, along with apparent gaps in training support. In 2018, an American Library Association project team surveyed library professionals regarding their experiences with project management in their organizations and LIS programs. The results highlighted a number of gaps in project management practices in libraries and preparation …

    Abstract:

    In late 2013, Hesburgh Libraries at the University of Notre Dame embarked on an audacious journey to renovate its iconic fourteen-story building. Driven by an immediate pressing need to reduce the footprint of physical collections in the library, a massive project commenced in the fall of 2014 to prepare approximately one million volumes for transfer to an off-site high-density mobile shelving storage facility. The project was carried out in two large phases that involved coordination of work…

    Abstract:

    The hierarchical decision making structure of academic libraries and consequently established cultural norms can affect the implementation of project management, hindering effective stakeholder engagement and ongoing ownership of and accountability for library products and services. The Hesburgh Libraries at the University of Notre Dame offers a strategy for navigating structural issues which emphasizes making incremental organizational changes that empower agile decision making responsive to…

    Abstract:

    The Hesburgh Libraries and Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame were awarded a 3-year grant that provided funding for a unified discovery and exhibition platform. Although many digital preservation concerns were outside the scope of the grant, one beneficial output of the project has been renewed discussion and interest around robust digital preservation implementations appropriate for each units’ specific needs. In this paper, we will discuss how our efforts to bring together …

    Abstract:

    At the University of Notre Dame, we had the opportunity to reframe our partnership with the Writing and Rhetoric program as one based on teaching, rather than transactions. In this poster presentation, we share the strategies used to shift the conversation with the Writing and Rhetoric program, allowing them to see librarians as teaching partners who lead instruction sessions that are extensions of their curriculum rather than ones that take time away from their tight schedules. We will prese…

    Abstract:

    Many academic libraries have developed and/or purchased digital systems over the years, including digital collection platforms, institutional repositories, and other online tools on which users depend. At Hesburgh Libraries, as with other institutions, some of these systems have aged without strong guidance and resulted in stale services and technology. This case study will explore the lengthy process of stewarding an aging service that satisfies critical external needs. Starting with a brief…

    Abstract:

    Using an academic library can feel overwhelming to first-year students. We make the case for including the libraries in summer programs to help students overcome library anxiety and become familiar with resources and services that are key to their academic success. This poster highlights our philosophy of using a strengths-based approach―one in which students build on their strengths and previous experiences―to introduce students to the academic library and the research process. We demonstrat…
