  • OpenCon 2018: Building a community of openness, advocacy, and activism
    • Authors: Debbie Feisst, Willa Tavernier
      First page: 134
      Abstract: From November 2 through 4, 2018, we were fortunate to attend OpenCon 2018 in Toronto, Canada, through generous scholarships sponsored by ACRL. OpenCon is an annual opportunity to learn about open access, education, research, and data, and the 2018 conference marked OpenCon’s fifth meeting and the first time it had been held in Canada. OpenCon is known for its focus on youth and the next generation of Open advocacy. Additionally, we have been invited to contribute to ACRL’s scholarly communication initiative by being appointed for upcoming two-year terms on the Research and the Scholarly Environment Committee (ReSEC). We are pleased to share our reflections from OpenCon 2018.

  • Everybody’s publishing but me! How a writing group can help
           actualize your publishing dreams
    • Authors: Dory Rosenberg, Karin M. Kettenring, Anne R. Diekema
      First page: 138
      Abstract: On any given day, one can go to the Chronicle of Higher Education and see a new article on the trials and tribulations of publishing and seeking tenure in academia. Anxiety inducing titles such as “Measuring Up” and “The Stress of Academic Publishing” reaffirm the notion that one must publish, or perish. While this type of pressure pushes some to success, for others, it makes it harder to write. However, you don’t have to travel this writing and publishing road alone. Inspired by the book Every Other Thursday: Stories and Strategies from Successful Women Scientists by Ellen Daniell, a small group of women academics and professionals in Logan, Utah found their support team through the creation of a writing group in Spring 2009.

  • The art and science of securing a job in an academic library: Landing your
           first, or next, position
    • Authors: Orolando Duffus
      First page: 145
      Abstract: While there are countless numbers of books, articles, webinars, forums, and courses that provide helpful tips, tricks and strategies to successfully navigate the academic job search and interview process, they may only slightly improve a candidate’s chance of successfully landing a job. This article, based on the author’s experiences, focuses on five factors that can make a significant difference in improving an LIS student or recent LIS graduate’s odds of success in landing a job in a research library. A study found that factors such as prior academic library experience (including practicums), professional service/committee work, and a record of publications can significantly increase or decrease the odds of getting a job after graduation. Brian Kenney suggests that LIS candidates can significantly increase their chances of landing a job by being willing to relocate and by effectively marketing themselves.

  • Group interviews for a cohort hire: Lessons learned at the University of
    • Authors: Cheryl Goldenstein, Cassandra Kvenild, Kristina A. Clement, Samantha Cook, Michelle P. Green
      First page: 150
      Abstract: After several years of hiring freezes, the University of Wyoming (UW) Libraries received approval from university administration to recruit three entry-level librarians for our Research and Instruction Services (R&I) department. Staffing reductions made dedicated librarian support for disciplines unrealistic, so three traditional liaison positions were reframed as learning and engagement, student success, and instructional design librarians to align with the university’s emphasis on undergraduate retention. Library administration assembled a committee in January 2018 to conduct a triple search.

  • Going to the dogs: One college library’s program to encourage
           reading literacy
    • Authors: Sarah Mailloux, Brad Matthies
      First page: 161
      Abstract: When the Casper College Library was approached by the Office of Student Financial Assistance to develop a reading literacy program, we jumped at the opportunity. The program had to give educational and meaningful job duties to work study students, while also supporting the mission of the college and library. Libraries have long championed reading literacy, so the programming choices were many. How should we plan a program that was innovative, fun, encouraged reading literacy, and would involve students at a largely commuter campus' The answer: we’ll go to the dogs.

  • The art of information literacy: New competencies for art, architecture,
           and design learners
    • Authors: Linden How, Amanda Meeks, Shannon Marie Robinson, Alyssa Vincent
      First page: 165
      Abstract: Art, architecture, and design curriculum in higher education has evolved in many ways over the past decade. While many universities and colleges still ascribe to the Bauhaus model as a core approach to instruction, shifts in technology, modes of making, global perspectives, and the professional landscape have required responsiveness on the part of these institutions. Today’s art, architecture, and design learners need to be equipped to navigate, evaluate, and ethically use vast quantities and varieties of information in their practices. As a result of these evolutions and the influence of the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education, library pedagogy for these disciplines has accordingly shifted away from traditional bibliographic instruction and towards information literacy-based approaches.

  • Think before you flip: Using Fink’s Taxonomy of Significant Learning to
           design flipped library instruction
    • Authors: Dorinne Banks, Tolonda Henderson
      First page: 169
      Abstract: Every summer for the past several years, George Washington University has held a Course Design Institute (CDI) in the library. CDI is a weeklong boot camp dedicated to helping faculty create or recreate courses centered on student learning. At the heart of the design methodology is L. Dee Fink’s Taxonomy of Significant Learning. Fink defines learning as a change in the learner and his taxonomy identifies six areas where this might happen: foundational learning, application, integration, caring, learning how to learn, and a human dimension.

      Abstract: New year, new action on net neutralityIt is not surprising that some reporters covering the February 1 oral arguments for Mozilla v. Federal Communications Commission before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit referenced Groundhog Day. Not only was the large rodent scheduled for his spring forecast the following day, but the same court has ruled multiple times on this issue over the past decade—bringing to mind the endless loop Bill Murray finds himself in the movie Groundhog Day.
