  • Strategic open data preservation: Roles and opportunities for broader
           engagement by librarians and the public
    • Authors: Laurie Allen, Claire Stewart, Stephanie Wright
      First page: 482
      Abstract: The June 2017 ACRL/SPARC Forum at the ALA Annual Conference focused on recent efforts to build cooperative programs to ensure persistent access to open data, including science data provided by the U.S. federal government. Data Rescue events, inaugurated at the University of Pennsylvania, catalyzed librarians, scientists, technologists, and other open data advocates to build a broad and resilient coalition to ensure against future data loss. Here, the three speakers from the forum reflect upon their own experiences with Data Rescue events and how they view opportunities for collective action going forward.

  • We mapped it so you don’t have to: Comparing online data mapping
    • Authors: Emily McGinn, Meagan Duever
      First page: 486
      Abstract: At the University of Georgia (UGA) Libraries’ Willson Center Digital Humanities Lab, we often help faculty members and students create research projects using new digital technologies. We have limited resources, but great ideas, and this article will share how we have solved common mapping research questions using web tools, most of which are free and accessible to any user on or off our campus.

  • New academic library leader discussion series: Part one
    • Authors: Amanda Clay Powers, Martin Garnar, Dustin Fife
      First page: 492
      Abstract: Amanda Clay Powers (ACP), Martin Garnar (MG), and Dustin Fife (DF) are all relatively new library deans or directors. This series is their attempt to discuss the process of moving to a new library and becoming more than just a new manager, but truly a leader. This will be broken into three parts, looking mostly at their first year. The first article will focus on how Powers, Garnar, and Fife ended up where they are now. It will talk about the process of applying for the job, being interviewed, and interviewing their prospective employers at the same time. The second part will focus on getting started, working with a new team, and adjusting to a new institution. The third part will be the most introspective. The authors will discuss obstacles, mistakes, failures, and successes. They believe this open and honest conversation is essential to help prepare future library deans, directors, and leaders.

  • Merged expertise, mutual benefits: Using a cross-disciplinary, same-campus
           research team to investigate academic libraries
    • Authors: Glenn Ellen Starr Stilling
      First page: 496
      Abstract: Academic librarians have provided support to research teams on their campuses for many years. The main types of support discussed in the library literature include literature searching, citation management, data management, and information literacy instruction. Supporting research teams has been recommended as outreach, liaison work, and as part of the embedded librarians movement. Martin Kesselman and Sarah Watstein, for example, state, “In academic settings, embedded librarians are in collaborative learning environments. They are on research teams.” Librarians’ contributions to these teams will usually relate to what librarians are well trained to do: “captur[e] group knowledge” and “acquir[e] and organiz[e] internal and external information.”1

  • Enhancing the assignment: Using the Framework for student learning and
           assessment in a Business Law class
    • Authors: Cara Berg
      First page: 502
      Abstract: In this column, I discuss my usage of three different frames of the ACRL “Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.”1 I worked with knowledge practices and dispositions from three frames in a 75-minute library instruction class for the Business and Law course “Legal Environment of Business.” I used those frames to enhance simple instruction for the class, and created an assessment to complement the instruction.

  • Team up: Collaborating with public relations students to promote library

    • Authors: April Hines, Hélène Huet, Stacey Ewing, LeiLani Freund
      First page: 506
      Abstract: In fall 2015, a group of librarians, who are members of the Library West Creative Team at the George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida (UF), sought new methods for effectively reaching undergraduate students. Previous internal studies showed that when students think of the library, they think of study space, technology, materials, and the coffee shop, but rarely do they consider librarians and the services we provide.

  • Becoming a librarian BFF: Three tips to connect with your students
    • Authors: Erica England, Leo S. Lo
      First page: 510
      Abstract: At the ACRL 2017 conference in Baltimore, Maryland, we presented a poster on a program called, “The Librarian BFF Program for Distance Graduate Students.”1 The title is a tongue-in-cheek way of framing librarians to be students’ and faculty’s “best friend forever,” which was our approach for providing a personalized librarian service to a specific group of users. With the connotation of being a “BFF,” we adopted a more playful and intimate attitude to delivering the service.

  • Research: The good, the bad, and the anxious
    • Authors: Emma Wood
      First page: 514
      Abstract: In research and in life, human beings are prone to uncertainty and susceptible to the circular thinking of worry. According to the DSM-5, anxiety is anticipation of future threat. Sometimes that threat comes in the form of an overlooked article or a feeble bibliography, darkening the sky of a promising idea for a scholarly endeavor. Anxiety is characterized by excessive concern and distress which can manifest itself in symptoms such as checking and obsessing. The obstacles that are met along the research trail can send up red flags in the brain that lead researchers to check and recheck the same sources and obsess over the unknown. The processes of finding answers are, of course, tied to unknowing, and in that unknowing is a hotbed for apprehension. Some of the remedies for anxiety may be applied to research, probably not Xanax, but certainly a heavy dose of acceptance.

  • Advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: Experiences of
           international academic and research libraries
    • Authors: Loida Garcia-Febo, Ju Hee Kim, Lallaisangzuali Sailo, Vinita Jain, Yolanda Tugwell
      First page: 516
      Abstract: In January 2016 the United Nations (UN) launched new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)1 to guide development efforts worldwide. In the years leading up to this launch, the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) participated in the UN Open Working Group meetings held to discuss the way forward for a new development plan once the Millennium Development Goals ended in December 2015. IFLA advocated for culture, information and communication technologies (ICTs), and access to information to be included in the SDGs.

  • Grants and Acquisitions
    • Authors: Ann-Christe Galloway
      First page: 524
      Abstract: A private Lincoln and Civil War collection, amassed over the past 50 years by Frank J. Williams (former Rhode Island Chief Justice and nationally known Abraham Lincoln authority), will be donated to Mississippi State University (MSU). Williams, the longtime president of the Ulysses S. Grant Association, was previously instrumental in relocating that group and its own archives to MSU nine years ago. The Frank J. and Virginia Williams Collection boasts rare historical memorabilia; priceless artifacts; original, signed documents; ephemera; books published over a span of 150 years; and both original one-of-a-kind, and early mass-produced, artwork relating to Lincoln and the Civil War era.

  • Fast Facts
    • Authors: Gary Pattillo
      First page: 528
      Abstract: In a study of one electronic theses and dissertations repository, authors found that documents deposited from 2011 to 2015 exhibited 23 percent link rot. That is, the reference links send users to webpages that are no longer available. Of the 77 percent of references that were still active, about half of those exhibited content drift, where web pages remain available but the contents have changed.
