    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:

    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…

    Abstract:

    Digital collections are deceptive; when users turn to online platforms to access content, the amount of work required to provide uninterrupted access to digital materials is not always obvious or clear. One aspect of this work is taken care of by our software developers and product owners, who work to ensure that the interface and user experience are as simple and effective as possible to our end-users. While that aspect of the work is handled, other library staff and faculty must then take o…

    Abstract:

    Our digital collections, exhibits, sites, and content have grown in an ad-hoc fashion, resulting in a proliferation of access systems without a unified strategy. As a result, library website users are presented with links with similar language: words like “exhibit” and “collections” appear in link labels without clear differentiation and cause confusion for both internal and external users. In this presentation, we will describe our process for testing different link language, creating a unif…

    Abstract:

    This presentation was provided for the “Moment to see, Courage to act” initiative led by the Provost’s Office. This presentation focuses on the Marble project, a grant-funded initiative to build a unified discovery and exhibition platform for the Snite Museum of Art and the Hesburgh Libraries.

    Background from the Provost’s Office: And the reality of course is that the challenges will likely continue. We can end up wherever these challenges toss us. Alternatively, we can dec…

    Mikala Narlock, Abby Shelton
    Abstract:

    Museums, archives, and libraries steward similar materials, yet the design and user experience conventions for online access platforms differ greatly. Presenters will discuss their efforts to design and build a collaborative digital collection site, including a user experience assessment to balance balancing community needs with discipline-specific interface customizations.

  • Abstract:

    The University of Notre Dame has been awarded a one-year Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) planning grant to assess the need for library-based machine learning and natural language processing tools to facilitate automated metadata creation and classification in support of cross-disciplinary discovery and research. These are the final outputs of the grant archived for preservation purposes. These materials are also accessible on the related OSF repository: https://osf.io/tmxqf/. …

    Description:

    A recent report suggests that for every $1 spent on natural hazard mitigation measures for homes and businesses, society will on average benefit $6 in avoided direct and direct losses. As the political will is generally lacking to mandate and enforce building code revisions that would require owners in earthquake and hurricane zones to make such investments, these considerable economic and societal benefits will only be realized by discovering what would persuade building owners, and especial…

    Abstract:

    Our session will center on the collaboration between the library, archives, and art museum at the University of Notre Dame to make the collections of these campus partners available in a shared digital space. We will focus on three areas of collaboration: rights for digital objects, user experience and design, and a metadata crosswalk.

    The first area of collaboration concerns rights information and associated workflows. Libraries and museums have different practices in making rights determin…

    Abstract:

    Governments around the world adopt transparency reforms to facilitate accountability. In principle, open proceedings provide citizens with valuable information to evaluate elected officials’ decisionmaking, which incentives lawmakers to follow mass preferences when choosing policies. However, the public’s general lack of knowledge and engagement with the political process may weaken the power of open information, and perhaps instead allow citizens and groups with extreme views to exer…

    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:

    As climate changes, coastal homeowners are potentially crucial actors in reducing the risks to property and human life from rising seas and increased hurricane activity. Absent strict, enforceable regulations mandating retrofitting of existing homes or major changes in homeowner insurance requirements, coastal resilience in a changing climate will largely reflect private, voluntary decisions of millions of individuals. However, research is scarce on the current risk level of U.S. coastal home…
