      Abstract: Welcome to the April 2019 issue of C&RL News. We start out this month with two articles focusing on scholarly communication issues. Navigating copyright in open educational resources is the focus of Lindsey Gumb’s Scholarly Communication column “An open impediment.” At the University of Memphis, librarians increased knowledge of data issues on campus through a professional development program for faculty. They write about their efforts in the article “Data Stewardship Week in an academic library.”

  • An open impediment: Navigating copyright and OER publishing in the
           academic library
    • Authors: Lindsey Gumb
      First page: 202
      Abstract: Academic libraries around the world are leading the way to support the adoption, revision, and creation of open educational resources (OER), both saving students money and encouraging pedagogical innovation in the classroom. While there are varying definitions depending on the organization, it is generally accepted that a resource used for teaching, learning, or research can be considered an OER if it is both free and openly-licensed under Creative Commons (CC), general public license, or is in the public domain.

  • Data Stewardship Week in an academic library: An overview
    • Authors: Caitlin Harrington, Kenneth Haggerty, Rachel Elizabeth Scott
      First page: 206
      Abstract: In the information age, data stewardship is crucial for individual and organizational productivity. It is easy to get overwhelmed by vast amounts of information being created every second. Information overload has become a common occurrence in the workplace to the extent that people “spend more time searching for the right information, leaving them less time for proper analyses using the acquired information.” Thus, the excess of information in the workplace can lead to stress, lack of productivity, and information fatigue.

  • Reframing from the ground up: Redesigning a credit-bearing information
           literacy course using the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher
    • Authors: Shonn M. Haren
      First page: 212
      Abstract: LIB 1500 is a three-credit information literacy course offered by the University Library at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Cal Poly-Pomona), which is taught by faculty librarians. The course was developed during the 2014–15 academic year and has been offered continuously since. While targeted primarily toward freshmen, in the course inevitably include a number of sophomores and upper-level students seeking to fulfill their lifelong learning General Education requirement, for which LIB 1500 is one of several options. While the development of LIB 1500 has been a labor of love, by the end of Spring Quarter 2017, those of us involved in teaching the class had noticed that the course was becoming dated and needed a complete overhaul. Therefore, during the 2017–18 academic year, librarians at Cal Poly-Pomona fundamentally redesigned LIB 1500 to reflect the threshold concepts described in the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. In doing so, we learned valuable lessons about course structure, applied learning, and the iterative nature of course revision.

  • Librarians as critical friends: Developing a sustainable peer observation
    • Authors: Laura Dimmit, Caitlan Maxwell, Chelsea Nesvig
      First page: 216
      Abstract: Librarians at the University of Washington- Bothell and Cascadia College Campus Library engage in information literacy instruction offered in targeted courses across the curriculum. A focus of these targeted courses is multiple sections of 100-level college introduction and research writing. Most classroom instruction happens by a single librarian in front of a group of students and a faculty member. With approximately 15 librarians engaging in an average of 10 to 12 instruction workshops each academic quarter, our instruction program is robust and dynamic but lacks a built-in mechanism for observation and feedback.

  • Librarians as faculty developers: Leading educational development
    • Authors: Katelyn Handler, Lauren Hays
      First page: 220
      Abstract: Faculty development might not immediately spring to mind as a role for librarians. It’s not something that we’re taught how to do in graduate school, and it’s easy enough to be swallowed up by all of the traditional day-to-day demands of academic librarianship. However, we have had the opportunity to work with and alongside faculty development departments at our institutions. From this work, we realized how much we enjoy it and how well it fits with many of the things we already do as librarians. It is our hope that other librarians will start to see connections between the work of librarians and the work of faculty developers, and be more willing to pursue this as a part of their larger presence at their institutions.

  • Moving from the sidelines to the playing field: Developing a relationship
           with student athletics
    • Authors: Kate Costin, Pamela J. Morgan
      First page: 224
      Abstract: The Vanderbilt University Library, in collaboration with the university’s Department of Athletics Stratton Foster Academic Support Center, established an initiative to better acquaint the counselors at the center with the library and its resources. Through conversation, both sides realized there were many opportunities to make the relationship stronger, resulting in year-round support for student athletes. The partnership, now in its fourth year, has evolved to meet the needs of both the students and support staff.

  • The anxious, the furious, and the annoyed: Hidden shame in the academic
    • Authors: Erin McAfee
      First page: 230
      Abstract: In March 2018, my manuscript on library shame was published in College & Research Libraries. The paper’s focus is library anxiety, but more accurately it is about the shared experience of normal shame for both the librarian and the user. When shame is misidentified as maladaptive behavior by both the librarian and user, it results in alienation or conflict. When shame is identified by the librarian as normal, it strengthens the relationship with the user.

  • C&RL Spotlight
    • Authors: Wendi Kaspar
      First page: 236
      Abstract: My first job as a librarian was for a large software company (which shall remain nameless), working in the research library supporting one of its divisions. Almost all of the questions would come by email (at the risk of dating myself, this was the mid-90s) either directly to me or triaged through a request system. I handled questions about market research, software algorithms, trademarks, and anything else that happened to come up. It was a great place to work—one of those beautiful campuses, where the lounge is stocked with free soft drinks and you can come in when you want because everyone puts in much more than 40 hours a week. I learned a lot at a time when computers were transforming libraries.

  • Grants and Acquisitions
    • Authors: Ann-Christe Galloway
      First page: 244
      Abstract: The Library of Congress has received a $540,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to evaluate the physical health of the national collection of books in American research libraries and to guide their archive retention and preservation decisions. Since there currently is no objective formula to assess the condition of millions of books in the custody of the nation’s libraries, this scientific study will help inform best practices and provide a baseline for libraries to analyze their print collections based on established scientific guidelines. This is the first effort of its kind to lay the scientific groundwork for the development of a national effort to preserve the corpus of books held in American libraries.
