    Abstract:

    What information can I trust? What sources should I include in my paper? Where can I find a quote that fits my argument? Undergraduates ask instructors, classmates, and/or librarians these questions. Meanwhile, instructors bemoan the gap between their expectations for student writing and the finished products. Navigating a large volume of scholarship and critically evaluating potential sources is straightforward for faculty who have long passed key information literacy thresholds. However, st…

    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:

    A significant but largely inaccessible survey of more than 130,000 women religious in the late 1960s is now available to scholars around the world, thanks to a digital preservation effort by the University of Notre Dame Archives and Hesburgh Libraries.

    University archivists, librarians, subject experts and digital preservation specialists collaborated to migrate The Conference of Major Superiors of Women (CMSW) Sisters’ Survey of 1967 to a digital format that researchers can access online.

    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…
