      Abstract: Welcome to the January 2020 issue of C&RL News. A lot of attention gets paid to communicating library activities and value across campus, but internal communication can be just as essential for success. Starting out this month’s issue, Kelly Delevan and Natalie LoRusso discuss “Library outreach as a model for staff inreach” at Syracuse University.

  • Library outreach as a model for staff inreach: A method for sharing
    • Authors: Kelly Delevan, Natalie LoRusso
      First page: 10
      Abstract: Libraries have been successful at focusing their outreach efforts to users, but may not be as strong with communicating to their own staff. In recent years, libraries have acknowledged this siloed nature of their organizations, and have sought to break down barriers through a variety of methods. Meghan Kowalski recommended four strategies, one of which is sharing success “at meetings, through emails, or on bulletin boards.”

  • Using a social platform as an internal communication tool: A case study
    • Authors: Glenn Haya, Sara M. Lind, Sara Janzen
      First page: 14
      Abstract: In 2017, the Karolinska Institutet University Library conducted a project to replace the existing Intranet with a new improved tool. At the start of the project, we assumed it would result in a new, improved version of the existing Intranet. However, the project group eventually decided to replace the original Intranet with a combination of three tools that we believed would better meet the library staff’s needs.

  • Subscribe to Open: Modeling an open access transformation
    • Authors: Allison Langham-Putrow, Sunshine J. Carter
      First page: 18
      Abstract: The introduction of Plan S, an initiative for open access launched by a group of primarily European national funding agencies and two foundations in late 2018, prompted discussion about how publishers will transition to full open access. Many current open access models involve article processing charge (APC) payments. Here we describe an alternative model, Subscribe to Open (S2O).

  • Curriculum mapping in academic libraries revisited: Taking an
           evidence-based approach
    • Authors: Katy Kavanagh Webb
      First page: 30
      Abstract: Curriculum mapping for the purposes of an academic library is the process of reviewing a degree-granting department’s curriculum side-by-side with library learning objectives to situate information literacy instruction within the sequence of courses that a student will take.In 2014, I undertook a curriculum mapping pilot for our library using a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis methodology as part of a leadership institute. My project looked at three degree programs at our university and suggested changes for further engagement with the departments. At the same time, three other librarians that I met at the leadership institute took part in curriculum mapping projects at their institutions using different methodologies. Together, we published our results in the New Review of Academic Librarianship.

  • Faculty writing retreats in the library: Creative approaches to
           relationship building
    • Authors: Lisa Nickel, Tami Back
      First page: 34
      Abstract: At William & Mary (W&M) Libraries, we often feel this way, and we hear from our teaching faculty colleagues that they feel the same. But can this common challenge present a unique opportunity' Can we, as a library, fill this need and accomplish our goals of building relationships and connections with faculty' We determined that we can. As we consider time-intensive library events, partnerships, and outreach, we have learned that focusing on high-impact relationship-building opportunities is the best way to spend our time.

  • My life as a writing professor and research librarian: The ideas that
           bridge the gap
    • Authors: George Koors
      First page: 38
      Abstract: When I got into libraries, I looked forward to more one-on-one time with students. I had been a teacher at the college level for some time, and when I got a job as reference coordinator at American University, I saw an opportunity to have both large-group and one-on-one time with students.I staff a public-facing research desk, am embedded in first-year writing courses as their librarian, and teach first-year writing as a professor in the literature department. It is a wonderful balance, but it has taken time to learn how these identities interact. Over time, they have merged. This essay looks at that, and at some of the language I have used to understand that bridge between these roles. I hope to lightly tie this language to aspects of the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.

  • Introduction to animal law: Resources for online research and study
    • Authors: Valerie Lang Waldin
      First page: 40
      Abstract: Animal law is the body of statutory and case law governing the treatment of nonhuman animals, including wildlife, companion animals, and animals used for research, entertainment, and food. Emerging rapidly on academic and legal horizons since 2000, entire programs of study at all levels are now dedicated to training students to be effective humane educators, attorneys, law enforcement officers, and citizens.High-profile court cases, such as SeaWorld v. California Coastal Commission, along with the proliferation of animal protection documentaries, such as Blackfish, Earthlings, and Tyke: Elephant Outlaw, have raised profound questions about our treatment of other species. Animal protection is now a mainstream phenomenon, largely due to the Internet and social media providing instant visibility to and awareness of the critical issues of our time.

      Abstract: A recent report from The Chronicle of Higher Education on “Views on Academic Innovation” (with a teaser video) caught my attention. Given the forces at work in library scholarship and practice, innovation is one of those topics that I always consider, especially in the context of higher education. Overall, the report (which is really a summary of a round table discussion) brought together several different academic leaders to discuss a number of issues influencing change and innovation on campuses. There were several points made that are particularly relevant to academic libraries, not just as issues with which libraries are struggling but also as potential opportunities for libraries to engage with the larger campus efforts: the barriers to collaboration, the traditional incentives that undermine innovation, and the external forces that provoke a reactive rather than a thoughtful, planned approach.

      Abstract: Academic libraries can make a difference in the 2020 CensusThe 2020 Census will be a central focus across the country this year, and academic libraries can take an active role in promoting its importance. It’s an opportunity to collaborate with campus administrators, students, faculty, community leaders, and elected officials to achieve a fair and accurate Census count. The results of the Census will affect federal funding allocations, Congressional representation, and planning and policy decisions for the next decade.
