    Abstract:

    This exploratory study seeks to understand how the research experiences of humanities PhD students influence their information behavior. The authors interviewed 10 participants from two academic institutions multiple times over several months. The study used open-ended, unstructured interviewing techniques in an attempt to avoid the introduction of library bias. The authors found that the information behavior of PhD students is driven by their need to understand and follow a scholarly dialogu…

    Abstract:

    Implementing discovery tools and getting them to work with existing library services often leaves very little time for their promotion and for the thoughtful, ongoing evaluation and curation of their content. However, the expectations and experiences that users have about discovery tools are often directly related to the content and the way that content is described. In our efforts to work with vendors to resolve the underlying business issues that prevent us from having all of the metadata f…

    Abstract:

    Estimating a massive drive time matrix between locations is a practical but challenging task. The challenges include availability of reliable road network (including traffic) data, programming expertise, and access to high-performance computing resources. This research proposes a method for estimating a nationwide drive time matrix between ZIP code areas in the U.S. - a geographic unit at which many national datasets including health information are compiled and distributed. The method (1) do…

    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:

    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:

    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:

    ABSTRACT Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic human pathogen important to diseases such as cystic fibrosis. P. aeruginosa has multiple quorum-sensing (QS) systems, one of which utilizes the signaling molecule 2-heptyl-3-hydroxy-4- quinolone (Pseudomonas quinolone signal [PQS]). Here, we use hyperspectral Raman imaging to elucidate the spatiotemporal PQS distributions that determine how P. aeruginosa regulates surface colonization and its response to both metabolic stress and competition…
