    • Authors: Elizabeth Dolinger

      Abstract: For librarians at Keene State College, the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education solidified moving away from one-shot instruction sessions and toward initiatives that would better integrate information literacy into the curriculum. This approach meant moving away from the idea that librarians must be teaching information literacy and instead adapting the idea that faculty within the discipline are best positioned to teach information literacy through their disciplinary context.

  • Reimagining the research assignment: Faculty-librarian collaborations that

    • Authors: Sherri Saines, Sara Harrington, Chad Boeninger, Paul Campbell, John Canter, Bryan McGeary
      First page: 14
      Abstract: One important focus of the libraries’ work in recent years has been transforming the work of subject librarians to foster the development of “strong, collaborative, opportunistic relationships that place Ohio University (OU) Libraries in the flow of teaching, learning, and research.” Librarians seek to be experts embedded in the disciplines, collaborating and partnering with faculty as part of the academic enterprise.

  • Scaffolding the collection manager-instructor relationship: Partnerships
           for primary source instruction
    • Authors: Mireille Djenno
      First page: 18
      Abstract: Whereas the literature on incorporating primary sources into undergraduate education is large and growing, a sustained discussion of the relationship between the collection manager—be it librarian, archivist, or curator—and the course instructor is conspicuously absent. Unlike secondary source material, which can generally be accessed independent of collection managers (or any other gatekeepers), primary source material is often mediated, making it almost impossible for course instructors wishing to use these sources to bypass collection or repository personnel. The partnership between them is therefore vital.

    • Authors: Hailley M. Fargo, Nicholas J. Rowland, Jeffrey A. Knapp
      First page: 22
      Abstract: In the ACRL white paper “Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy: Creating Strategic Collaborations for a Changing Academic Environment,” the authors suggested librarians should reach out to “formal undergraduate research programs where faculty are paired one-on-one with undergraduate students.” By partnering with research groups, librarians could introduce the concepts behind scholarly communication and the information cycle, thereby enhancing the undergraduate research experience.

  • Dyslexia-friendly fonts: Using Open Dyslexic to increase exhibit access
    • Authors: Sierra Laddusaw, Jeremy Brett
      First page: 33
      Abstract: In two recent exhibits at Cushing Memorial Library and Archives, Texas A&M University, we made the decision to try to increase the level of access to both the objects and their explanatory texts, for patrons who suffer from dyslexia. One of our then-student workers, herself dyslexic, proposed to library administration that our exhibits would be more welcoming if we had a way to provide for dyslexics and ease their exhibit experience. We agreed that this was an excellent idea and, in fact, kicked ourselves for not having thought of it earlier. We present this small summary of our experience in order that other institutions might see it as a useful case study for adapting their own exhibits or public programming to meet the needs of dyslexic patrons and visitors.

  • Creating a knowledge-sharing community: The use and expansion of knowledge
           management at Tulsa Community College
    • Authors: Andy K. Taylor
      First page: 38
      Abstract: Knowledge management (KM) is a very nebulous term. Research on the use of KM across different types of organizations and disciplines confirms this. This article examines the path that Tulsa Community College (TCC) took to not only build the use of KM across the college, but also to create the support structure to foster the creation of a knowledge sharing community.In order for an institution to be able to use KM effectively, several questions should be asked. Is there a culture of knowledge sharing at the institution' Is the concept of KM supported by those in the administration'In the case of TCC, the answers to these questions showed that there were a number of factors that precipitated the use of KM. First, the college began a complete reorganization of its academic units because, as a multicampus community college system, the academic units had become self-contained. A reorganization was carried out that greatly benefited the institution and brought it more in line with a “One College” model.

  • Where do FOIA responses live' Electronic Reading Rooms and web sources
    • Authors: Lisa DeLuca
      First page: 42
      Abstract: The Freedom of Information Act, FOIA (5 U.S.C. 552), generally provides any person with the statutory right, enforceable in court, to obtain access to government information in executive branch agency records. FOIA does not apply to the judicial or legislative branches of the U.S. government. This right to access is limited when information is protected from disclosure by one of FOIA’s nine statutory exemptions and exclusions.The “Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments of 1996” required that agencies needed to make eligible records available electronically. As a result, there are dozens of FOIA Libraries and Electronic Reading Rooms that are repositories for responses to agency FOIA requests. These documents are also known as responsive documents. Documents are often posted by agencies with redactions to protect personal privacy, national security, and other FOIA exemptions and exclusions. It is important for researchers, journalists, and citizens to use the terms “FOIA Libraries” and “Electronic Reading Rooms” as part of their search terminology. This will ensure they can find documents that might not be findable through a regular Google search.

  • Best practices in roving reference services: Six steps for success
    • Authors: Daniel A. Sabol
      First page: 46
      Abstract: Roving reference requires an open and friendly person who is understanding of the student’s needs. Also, roving reference requires a good deal of interpersonal skills and the ability to read a situation. We tend to walk the library and find students who are lost in the stacks or sitting in a chair with a database open, but not quite sure what to do with it. These are the students we are trying to reach, the student who needs help but will not ask or it.In my approach, I find that saying hello before your intervention, remembering names, and keeping the students’ best interest in mind achieves the best outcomes for both the librarian and the learner. Roving reference has value to the student and offers a service that adds value to librarians. Librarians play an enormous role in the learning and student outcomes. However, many students are not aware of what exactly it is that we do.

  • Cleveland, Ohio: A land of libraries
    • Authors: Evan Meszaros, Amanda Koziura
      First page: 48
      Abstract: Cleveland, like the rest of the state of Ohio, is a land rich with libraries. The greater metropolitan area of Cleveland alone is home to about a dozen academic libraries, two phenomenal public library systems, and numerous special libraries associated with our area’s many professional and cultural heritage institutions. This is in addition to our robust state-wide consortia, SearchOhio and OhioLINK, which respectively serve millions of public and academic patrons throughout the state. If you’ll be attending the ACRL 2019 Conference in Cleveland this spring, or even if you’re just passing through our city, you’ll want to check out what this land of libraries has to offer.

  • C&RL Spotlight
    • Authors: Wendi Kaspar
      First page: 54
      Abstract: As we ring in the new year, it is an opportune time to consider the work that we all do, celebrate it, and reflect on it—particularly those best practices and innovations in the profession that may further the trajectory and impact of our work.As we talk about librarianship and the work of academic libraries and librarians, we often point to best practices, case studies, and lessons learned. Far beyond the “how we done it good” article, they help identify excellence and innovation as well as provide a clear line of sight between research and its application. College & Research Libraries and College & Research Libraries News are flip sides of that coin. C&RL News focuses primarily on practice from a personal and institutional experience perspective, including innovative projects, enhanced services, collaborations across campus, best practices in teaching, and new applications of technology. The day-to-day tip of the iceberg of librarianship in practice, so to speak.

  • Washington Hotline
    • Authors: Kathi Kromer
      First page: 57
      Abstract: The lame duck session of the 115th Congress is winding down dramatically when it comes to library priorities. Both ALA members and staff in Washington are working down to the wire to pass legislation and protect policy positions.At writing, House leadership is holding up a floor vote on the Museum and Library Services Act (MLSA) to reauthorize the Institute of Museum and Library Services through 2025. As we anticipate continued threats from the current administration and even stronger competition for funding, reauthorizing the primary agency that administers federal support for libraries is increasingly important. ALA members and state librarians in strategic congressional districts are making phone calls to key House leaders and other influencers, urging them to support moving the legislation.
