  • Guidelines for Publishing in portal
    • Abstract: If you would like to publish your work in portal but do not know where to begin, this primer might be useful. Following are parameters to keep in mind and an overview of what portal editors and referees look for in a submission.First, make sure that portal is the right journal for you. Look at two or three of its recent issues to get a sense of the topics it covers, its scope, and its intended readership. The editors of portal reject many submissions simply because they are aimed at the wrong audience. Almost all portal articles deal with the impact of libraries within the context of higher education. Manuscripts about elementary education or K–12 libraries, for example, are likely not a good fit.portal focuses on ... Read More

  • Getting to the Core of Services: Considering the Arizona State University
           Library as a Core Facility
    • Abstract: Academic libraries are now often asked to support research data, data curation, preservation services and storage, and the discovery of and access to research outputs, among other functions.The Arizona State University (ASU) Library in Tempe provides a range of services to its research community, including academic support instruction, circulation and interlibrary loan lending, information access and technical help desk aid, and traditional collection development and maintenance for both print and electronic content. These services, which have been in place for decades or longer, lie at the core of what researchers expect from any academic library. However, the changing face of research and ongoing advances in ... Read More

  • Short-Term Global Exchanges through the Fulbright Specialist Program: One
           Librarian's Experience
    • Abstract: When the author boarded the first of three flights for the journey to India on March 14, 2019, she joined the ranks of approximately 370,000 researchers, scholars, students, and professionals who have participated in Fulbright programs through the United States Department of State since the cultural exchange plan was established in 1946. Fulbright programs, ranging from a single stay lasting a few weeks to multiple international visits over two years, have evolved over time and differ in their specific aims and objectives. Nevertheless, increased cross-cultural understanding through international partnerships remains a core goal of these experiences. Fulbright opportunities and experiences are available to those in ...

  • Spectrum of Value: State University Libraries Supporting K–12
           Teachers
    • Abstract: State-funded research institutions continually seek to demonstrate their commitment and value to their state. State universities serve as economic and intellectual hubs for their surrounding communities and their states, yet many struggle to communicate their value to their constituents. Universities work hard to serve their states, with extension service centers often acting as the primary conduit between researchers and the community. Academic libraries recognize the importance of this work and can serve as vital partners in state outreach efforts.For land-grant institutions, community outreach is often coordinated through the Cooperative Extension System, a nationwide educational network that is a joint project ...

  • Complexities of Demonstrating Library Value: An Exploratory Study of
           Research Consultations
    • Abstract: The University of Northern Iowa (UNI) is a comprehensive regional university with approximately 11,000 full-time equivalent students in Cedar Falls, Iowa. The university's librarians are generalists serving as liaisons and reference librarians to multiple departments and disciplines. As faculty and staff at UNI's Rod Library considered reconfiguring library services to respond to campus needs and manage staffing concerns, they needed to evaluate the effectiveness of existing services more intentionally, particularly investigating time-intensive research consultations. At Rod Library, such consultations are an important way many students receive library services, and the personalized focus appeals to many learners. ... Read More

  • From Journal Selection to Open Access: Practices among Academic Librarian
           Scholars
    • Abstract: When considering potential journals for manuscript submissions, faculty may feel the need to place a higher priority on impact factors and other metrics deemed important for tenure and promotion, causing publishing in open access (OA) journals to take a back seat.1 Academic libraries are known for their promotion of the open access movement and may have entire positions dedicated to educating university faculty on the advantages of open access, providing guidance on negotiating for better access in copyright agreements and other related services.2 But do libraries practice what they preach' Additional information on academic librarian authors' approaches to journal selection seems warranted. This exploratory study ... Read More

  • Doing Research: An Emerging Task of Academic Librarians for University
           Development in Vietnam
    • Abstract: Universities in Vietnam recognize that research activities have a significant impact on their educational quality. They are also aware of the value of global rankings by such international bodies as the Academic Ranking of World Universities of the University of Shanghai, Scimago Institutions Rankings, or the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.1 These rankings are based primarily on research activity and publications. Achieving a high ranking by these bodies gives a university a good reputation in its home country and internationally and helps it pursue its long-term goals and complete its mission. Faculty at the university are therefore expected to involve themselves in research activity, depending ... Read More

  • A Selected Comparison of Music Librarians' and Musicologists'
           Self-Archiving Practices
    • Abstract: Although the number of OA journals continues to grow, their quality and availability across disciplines vary considerably. Many authors still choose to publish in subscription-based, rather than OA, journals.
      Authors face an increasingly complex publishing landscape. Academics expected to publish to meet tenure and promotion requirements must negotiate a scholarly communications environment that has evolved to account for digital publishing platforms, changing economic models, and demands for expanded author rights—not to mention dynamic disciplinary and institutional preferences and expectations. Open access (OA) models are diverse and range considerably in their level of copyright protections and version ... Read More

  • Undergraduates' News Consumption and Perceptions of Fake News in Science
    • Abstract: In education, it is imperative to equip students with knowledge to critically engage with the news they consume.Fake news has become a popular term globally since the 2016 presidential election in the United States. The Internet and social media are awash with misinformation, and the credibility of the free press is constantly being challenged. In education, it is imperative to equip students with knowledge to critically engage with the news they consume. Sam Wineburg of the Stanford Graduate School of Education in Stanford, California, points out the serious situation in schools and the importance of information literacy. He says, "Schools are preparing a generation of bubble children without the immunities to ... Read More

  • Metadata Documentation Practices at ARL Institutional Repositories
    • Abstract: Partially as a result of the advent of digital libraries and the growth of the open access movement, institutional repositories (IRs) have proliferated across academic libraries over the last 10 to 15 years. Metadata quality is an ubiquitous issue for institutional repositories, much as it is for other library systems. This paper focuses on the guidelines and documentation for metadata entry and formatting in the IRs of Association of Research Library (ARL) member libraries.Unlike traditional library information retrieval systems, scholarly repositories commonly have materials described by people other than meta-data or cataloging specialists due to creator self-archiving.Institutional repositories indicate a ...
