  • Be an ally for accessibility: Tips for all librarians
    • Authors: Shawn McCann, Rebeca Peacock
      First page: 266
      Abstract: Accessibility is a concern for librarians in digital as well as physical spaces, and we have a responsibility to uphold the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). However, regardless of legal requirements, librarians endeavour to make content available to everyone. People with disabilities are no exception. While some of the more complex accessibility issues should be left to instructional technologists and web developers, there are plenty of things that anyone posting content online can do to increase content accessibility. Here are five tips that we have found useful for creating guides, posting handouts in our Learning Management System (LMS), building online tutorials, or similar activities.

           Library and Information Science Summit
    • Authors: Nataly Blas, Aisha Conner-Gaten, Rachel Deras, Jessea Young
      First page: 270
      Abstract: The William H. Hannon Library at Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in Los Angeles, California, held the first People of Color in Library and Information Science (POC in LIS) Summit on July 13, 2018. The summit was a collaborative planning effort by LMU librarians to create a productive and brave space for POC, especially women and marginalized identities, working in the information sector. The POC in LIS Summit invited participants to challenge their roles as information workers and acknowledge that dominant narratives may be disrupted.

  • We virtually brought our colleague to a library conference: Expanding
           education and networking opportunities
    • Authors: Gail Morton, Lee Twombly Olson, Stephanie Miranda, Kristen Bailey, Adam Griggs
      First page: 274
      Abstract: The benefits of attending a library conference lead to advantageous opportunities for career advancement, learning through shared knowledge, relationship-building through networking, and scholarship through presenting papers or posters. Unfortunately, it is not always possible for every librarian to make it to every conference to reap these benefits, whether it is due to lack of funding or conflicting schedules. ALA’s list of reasons to attend its most recent Annual Conference includes becoming a better advocate, relationship-building and networking, and being exposed to new ideas that bring a fresh energy to libraries.

  • Does open access make cents' Return on investment in the institutional
    • Authors: Ellen Dubinsky
      First page: 281
      Abstract: Access to information resources is a traditional library service. Public libraries were the first to provide unfettered access to print information resources to a general population. It is not a stretch to recognize those institutions as the earliest providers of open access (OA). Now the term open access is generally defined as the free and immediate online availability of research and scholarship, adapting to the widespread change in delivery format from print to digital. OA as a library service—most commonly in support of the scholarly communication process—has become a priority for most academic libraries. Academic libraries and librarians are increasingly engaged in both providing and promoting OA, primarily through institutional repository (IR) services with roles as creators, disseminators, publishers, and preservers of scholarly content.

    • Authors: Stephanie Crowe, Anne Pemberton, Vonzell Yeager
      First page: 285
      Abstract: The Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education (Framework) calls upon librarians to think of information literacy as a concept to be applied beyond the one-shot session, suggesting that the “Framework…is intended to be developmentally and systematically integrated into the student’s academic program at a variety of levels.”

  • Revisiting “Libraries: Global reach, local touch” with Barbara J.
           Ford: Insights for academic and research libraries
    • Authors: Clara M. Chu, Barbara J. Ford, Jaya Raju
      First page: 289
      Abstract: For the past three years, Barbara J. Ford has served as inaugural coeditor of this International Insights column. As she steps away from this role, it is fitting to revisit her ALA Presidential (1997–98) theme “Libraries: Global reach, local touch” and ask her to reflect, 20 years later, on what it means for academic and research libraries. In a recent conversation, Ford provided an arc of her career that was shaped by the experiences of childhood, a curiosity to learn about others and the world beyond her hometown, and a commitment to social change through librarianship.

  • Poverty rate in Africa and information access: The case of the Internet
    • Authors: Prince Jacon Igwe
      First page: 293
      Abstract: Information is key to basic survival in society. No civilization ever left that out in its existence. In fact, those who had greater access to information were known to have been more successful in war, infrastructures, commerce, and trade. However, we’re not living in the ancient times, and this fact brings both relief and worries. Relief because there are greater and more advanced infrastructures put together these days to transmit information. Worries because even at this point of development around the world, these infrastructures aren’t accessible to most people for one reason or the other. And this is exactly the case of the Internet in Africa today.

      Abstract: March 2019 saw a gambit in the open access (OA) movement that may be as significant as Harvard’s OA policy: The University of California System declined to renew their subscriptions with a major scientific publisher. It is a gutsy move—but inspiring to see a major research university walk the talk, and, in this case, walk away from the negotiating table. Now other universities in the United States and across the world, are holding their collective breath to see what will happen—will the dominoes fall'
