      Abstract: Welcome to the July/August 2018 issue of C&RL News. Last fall, the Macalester College Library’s feline fan Max the Cat was all the rage online for his persistent attempts to hang out in his favorite building. Rebecca S. Wingo, Alexis Logsdon, and Christopher Schommer reflect on Max’s fame and provide some great insights on copyright learned from their experience “Going viral.”

  • Going viral: Copyright lessons from Max the Cat
    • Authors: Rebecca S. Wingo, Alexis Logsdon, Christopher Schommer
      First page: 350
      Abstract: On November 29, 2017, a photo of a sign asking library patrons “please do not let in the cat” went viral. It wasn’t long before the Internet lore surrounding Max the Cat exceeded the scope of the original post. Until news agencies picked up the story and tracked us down, the image (and the cat) was largely divorced from its original context.

  • Teaching librarians about data: The ACRL Research Data Management RoadShow
    • Authors: Abigail Goben, Megan Sapp Nelson
      First page: 354
      Abstract: As research data management (RDM) has grown into an increasingly familiar service activity in academic libraries, there remains a knowledge gap for liaison and subject librarians attempting to take on these additional responsibilities. As one option to address this, the authors were contracted by ACRL to create a new full-day workshop targeting this specific audience. The result is the ACRL RoadShow, Building Your Research Data Management Toolkit: Integrating RDM into Your Liaison Work. Now in its second year, the RDM RoadShow has traveled extensively in the United States as well as one international trip and continues to assist in meeting the foundational RDM educational needs for liaison librarians and to identify where further education is desired.

  • One size does not fit all: Maintaining relevancy in the modern makerspace
    • Authors: Katy Mathuews, Daniel Harper
      First page: 358
      Abstract: As academic libraries have reimagined their facilities to meet the needs of 21st-century learning, makerspaces have been championed as a means to support contemporary learning, innovation, and collaboration on campus. Makerspaces in libraries are considered particularly fruitful for enabling cross-disciplinary collaboration, a hallmark of the library tradition.1 Thus library makerspaces often attempt to serve all campus constituents, even catering to campus-wide initiatives to improve student performance outcomes and bolster academic notoriety.2

  • Ready, set, make! Exploring library resources in a residential hall
    • Authors: Kate Shivley, Lisa Jarrell, Dixie Denton
      First page: 360
      Abstract: Increasingly, the maker movement has spread across the nation in various contexts. Emerging from this movement are sites called makerspaces, which bring individuals together to create and learn collaboratively via engagement with resources and materials. Libraries are natural partners in the maker movement. At Ball State University, Bracken Library has access to collections and resources to support student making and learning. The library provides expert assistance, support, and resources for students in their homes (i.e., residence halls) and encourages both faculty and students to use the space for projects, presentations, and workshops.

  • Outreach, engagement, learning, and fun in 60 seconds: Button making at
           the Rutgers University Libraries
    • Authors: Megan Lotts, Tara Maharjan
      First page: 364
      Abstract: In the fall of 2016, the Rutgers University Libraries (RUL)-New Brunswick Learning and Engagement team spent $580 to purchase a button maker and supplies to make 1,000 buttons. Since then, the libraries have collaborated on button projects with many departments on campus, including the Rutgers Art History Student Association, the Zimmerli Art Museum, and the School of Arts and Sciences Honors program. These partnerships have helped the libraries build strong ties with the Rutgers-New Brunswick communities and attracted a devoted group of button makers who regularly attend library events.

  • Collective leadership and participation with indigenous matters:
           Redefining indigenous literacy
    • Authors: Te Paea Paringatai
      First page: 372
      Abstract: Let’s say you work in a research or academic library that models traditional approaches to leadership, management, services and service delivery, and your library is interested in becoming a better workplace that attracted, retained, and developed indigenous staff, as well as transformed its service and service delivery to better include, involve, and implement indigenous language, culture, and ways of knowing. If it excelled at indigenous inclusion, how would people treat indigenous staff and students differently' What kinds of interactions would be visible in any new integrated service you developed' How would you reflect the local indigenous language and culture in your library' What kinds of new behaviors would be common' And what ingrained behaviors would be gone' If these questions raised concern or confusion, it may be that your academic or research library lacks the indigenous literacy required to make positive and sustainable transformation in this area; therefore, it is suggested that collective leadership and participation with indigenous matters will help address this.

  • Being there at a distance: Connecting the academic library to students who
           study abroad
    • Authors: Celia Emmelhainz, Marilyn R. Pukkila
      First page: 376
      Abstract: Like many liberal arts colleges, Colby College prides itself on its global focus, opportunities for undergraduate research, and the high number of students who study abroad during their junior year of college. Because of this, we as reference and research librarians wanted to better connect with our students abroad—students who often go off the radar in the intimate campus-focused environment of a small academic library. In this article, we’d like to talk about our outreach to students before and during study abroad, our assessment of its effects, and what we learned.

  • Hidden science superstars: Making diversity visible to increase inclusion
    • Authors: Mae Evans, Irene M. H. Herold, Zachary Sharrow
      First page: 380
      Abstract: Issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) are at the forefront of conversations in many academic and research libraries. In this article, we discuss our efforts to increase representation on our campus and in our library.

  • Encouraging users to pop in: Popcorn Day in the medical library
    • Authors: Natasha Williams, Shalu Gillum
      First page: 383
      Abstract: New libraries are constantly challenged to adapt how their spaces are used. This is the case even more so for libraries with primarily digital collections. As a brand new 21st-century library with only a few print materials and a 98% digital collection, it was important for the University of Central Florida Harriet Ginsburg Health Sciences Library to promote use of our space to existing users, and to establish the library space itself as a valuable resource to its faculty, staff, and students. This would be accomplished through the development of novel outreach activities, including one of our more unique and successful experiences—Popcorn Day.

  • Wine, viticulture, and enology: Resources for study
    • Authors: Michael DeNotto
      First page: 387
      Abstract: If it weren’t for wine, I might not be a librarian. No, not because the rigors of graduate school sometimes demand a glass of wine after finishing an arduous project like completely redoing the CSS for a public library’s website, or writing a grant proposal for an Administration and Management course.

  • C&RL Spotlight
    • Authors: Wendi Kaspar
      First page: 391
      Abstract: One of the primary roles of an editor is to support research and writing. This can be an explicit activity in the form of coordinating the journal, managing the review process, and editing the articles and issues. It can also be a more informal effort that focuses on development and intentionally engaging readers and authors about the writing or research processes. The editorials are a useful venue for such an endeavor. C&RL readers will find that many of the past editorials, those written by me or by guests, seek to engage in topics that will make the research, writing, and editorial processes more transparent as well as providing useful perspectives for authors and researchers. The guest editorial for July follows this trend. “Collaborative
      Authors hip as Peer Mentorship” by Courtney Jacobs, Marcia McIntosh, and Kevin M. O’Sullivan describes the lessons learned in their collaboration and addresses effective practice in projects that may be operational or organizational in nature and in research efforts that may ultimately result in shared publication.
