      Abstract: Welcome to the November 2019 issue of C&RL News. Many academic libraries have begun focusing efforts on addressing the mental health and well being of their populations. Marshall University in West Virginia, one of the states hit hardest by the recent opioid crises, focused on their libraries as mental health safe spaces. Sabrina Thomas and Kacy Lovelace discuss their collaborative campus project in “Combining efforts.” Learn more about resources available for “Mental health awareness” in this month’s Internet Resources article by Emily Underwood.

      Abstract: The Private Academic Library Network Inc. (PALNI) recently worked with The IDEA Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving student learning in higher education, to create a freely available assessment survey focused on the educational role and institutional effectiveness of the library. The results of the Assessment of Library Impact and Value survey provide insights on how best to implement improvements, allocate resources, and communicate with campus stakeholders at PALNI institutions. PALNI created the survey with the intention of making it open access, available for use, and remixing by other institutions.

  • Combining efforts: Libraries as mental health safe spaces

      Abstract: In the face of seemingly insurmountable, persisting problems, what is one thing that you could do to lift that burden in your own space, in your own building, or on your own walls'This defining question led to the creation of Marshall University (MU) Libraries Mental Health Initiative. The initiative began with an art exhibition titled: “Don’t Call Me Crazy: Resiliency through Art.” The goal of this exhibition was to encourage students, faculty, and staff to create artwork informed by mental health or to help process their own mental health. With more than 30 artists and 50 pieces filling the four floors of the library, we used this artwork to launch other aspects of the initiative.

  • Mental health awareness: Resources for everyone
    • Authors: Emily Underwood
      First page: 550
      Abstract: Approximately one in five adults (19.1%) experienced mental illness in 2018. In my opinion, one of the reasons that only 43.3% of those individuals received any kind of treatment or services is the stigma surrounding mental illness. As information professionals, we are uniquely positioned to assist patrons with finding the information and resources they need in order to learn what mental illness is, what it is not, discover that they are not alone, and find the best treatment for their situation. Everyone suffering from mental illness needs to know that there is hope for them and that they don’t need to suffer alone. When people feel that there is no hope of relief, their mental illness can become fatal through suicide.

      Abstract: In today’s political and social climate in the United States, news stories focusing on language-related conflicts are becoming increasingly common. For example, two Montana women filed a lawsuit earlier this year against U.S. Customs and Border Protection for being detained after they were overheard speaking Spanish in a local convenience store.

  • From cradle to grave: The life cycle of a digital learning object
    • Authors: Valerie Beech, Eric Kowalik
      First page: 560
      Abstract: Most librarians have probably experienced finding that a website they liked has disappeared, perhaps a video on YouTube, a tutorial, or even just an informative webpage. Sometimes the URL has simply changed, and the item can be found again. Other times the item has truly been retired. Without trying to track down the original creator or hosting body, we may never know exactly what happened nor why. Since we also place links to some of these items on our library webpages, disappearing websites create broken links or “link rot.” Librarians are also creators of some of these disappearing websites.

  • What do you mean' Research in the Age of Machines
    • Authors: Arthur “A.J.” Boston
      First page: 565
      Abstract: What Do You Mean'” was an undeniable bop of its era in which Justin Bieber explores the ambiguities of romantic communication. (I pinky promise this will soon make sense for scholarly communication librarians interested in artificial intelligence [AI].) When the single hit airwaves in 2015, there was a meta-debate over what Bieber meant to add to public discourse with lyrics like “What do you mean' Oh, oh, when you nod your head yes, but you wanna say no.” It is unlikely Bieber had consent culture in mind, but the failure of his songwriting team to take into account that some audiences might interpret it that way was ironic, considering the song is all about interpreting signals.

  • Making research visible: A library competition for graduate students
    • Authors: Kalli Damschen, Hannah Gascho Rempel
      First page: 569
      Abstract: Graduate students have always been a core academic library user group. However, because undergraduates typically make up a larger percentage of the on-campus student body, the development of targeted library services and programming for graduate students has often taken a back seat. Recently, however, interest in academic library services for graduate students has increased, as demonstrated by conferences devoted to this topic and the formation of an ACRL interest group focused on this issue.

      Abstract: A student once said to me, “You’re like an information wizard” after I placed a just-right reference source in her hands. In truth, I hadn’t done anything extraordinary. I did only what thousands of reference librarians have been trained to do for decades.

  • Partners in financial literacy: Outreach to student entrepreneurs
    • Authors: Emily Mross, Lauren Reiter
      First page: 575
      Abstract: In 2018, small businesses employed 58.9 million Americans, totaling 47.5% of the U.S. private workforce. Libraries often play a central role in helping people make their entrepreneurial dreams a reality by providing resources to support the research that goes into developing, running, and expanding small businesses. Public libraries are traditional resource centers for small business, but universities and academic libraries are increasingly supporting student entrepreneurs through both curricular and extracurricular programming to help them develop new startups and small businesses. Though libraries are instrumental in providing access to business development information, they may miss a key service area for successful entrepreneurship—financial literacy programming.

  • Building bridges with book club: Supporting international students’
           comfort and belonging on campus
    • Authors: Annie Jansen
      First page: 580
      Abstract: An evolving issue that many universities face is the challenge of a welcoming and comfortable campus climate for international students. Host to more than 1 million students in 2018, the United States remains the top destination of international students globally. Many foreign students go to large institutions, but increasingly students from China, India, Saudi Arabia, and other countries enroll at smaller institutions or satellite campuses of state schools. More than 40% of international students studying in the United States in 2018 were at baccalaureate degree granting institutions.

      Abstract: How to find a research topic, problem statement, or a question that’s worth publishingThere is some irony as I write this, as it is the third attempt at a column for this month. The two other editorials drafted were scrapped (at least for now): one is not coming together and one is just too controversial for how it is currently framed. In going back to the drawing board, it occurred to me that this is an issue (how to find a topic to write about) that I continually hear from authors and peers (and students), so I thought I would discuss it here with both confessions and advice.

      Abstract: The fight for network neutrality continues, despite disappointing court rulingOn October 1, 2019, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit delivered a long-awaited and complex ruling on whether the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) had the authority to eliminate Obama-era network neutrality protections that required all Internet traffic to be treated equally and prohibited blocking or prioritizing traffic in any way. The issue hinges in part on the reclassification of broadband as a telecommunications service, which would have made Internet service providers subject to stricter regulations. The judges ruled in favor of the FCC, saying it does have the authority to determine how the Internet is regulated (or not, in this case). At the same time, the court also determined the FCC still has work to do, remanding parts of the order back for further proceedings and, most importantly, rejecting the FCC’s attempts to prevent states from passing their own net neutrality rules.
