      Abstract: Welcome to the January 2018 issue of C&RL News. Nearly every field or industry has experienced disruption over the past several years, and librarianship is no exception. Susan M. Ryan and W. Tandy Grubbs discuss the concept of “Library self-disruption” through the lens of their collaboration bringing 3-D printing to the Stetson University Library and Chemistry Department.

  • Library self-disruption: The key to surviving and thriving: A library dean
           and professor dialogue on learning technologies and mutual dependence
    • Authors: Susan M. Ryan, W. Tandy Grubbs
      First page: 10
      Abstract: Disruption and change, especially in the area of technology, continue to have a major impact on society. The higher education community is certainly not immune to these trends. In this article, the authors, the library dean and a professor of chemistry at Stetson University, engage in a dialogue on learning technologies and mutual dependence.

  • Be critical, but be flexible: Using the Framework to facilitate student
           learning outcome development
    • Authors: Andrea Falcone, Lyda McCartin
      First page: 16
      Abstract: A shift in thinking in the library profession has moved us from the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education to the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. This shift from basic retrieval skills to higher-level thinking has presented challenges among instruction librarians as they try to interpret and incorporate the Framework into their programs, while ensuring student’s success in classes where basic search skills are essential.

  • Rescoping research through student-librarian collaboration: Lessons from
           the Fondren Fellows program
    • Authors: Marcel LaFlamme, Shannon Kipphut-Smith
      First page: 20
      Abstract: Academic library professionals increasingly see student workers as full coparticipants in the design and delivery of library resources and services. For some librarians, this perspective grows out of a commitment to critical and feminist pedagogy,1 while for others, greater reliance on student workers in the face of flat or contracting budgets has led to the pragmatic realization that the “skills of student workers could be leveraged to advance the library in unexpected and invaluable ways.”2 This article examines how collaboration with students can take librarian-initiated research in new directions, drawing on the experiences of the coauthors (a library staff member and a graduate student) as part of the Fondren Fellows program at Rice University’s Fondren Library.

  • What does a library accessibility specialist do' How a new role
           advances accessibility through education and advocacy
    • Authors: Stephanie Rosen
      First page: 23
      Abstract: Across North America, academic librarians are quietly converting print materials into accessible files, testing databases for usability, and applying principles of universal design to services, spaces, and instruction. Most of us do this work under unassuming job titles like director of access services or humanities librarian. But a few of us occupy new positions explicitly devoted to library accessibility.

  • From “life support” to collaborative partnership: A local/global view
           of academic libraries in South Africa
    • Authors: Reggie Raju
      First page: 30
      Abstract: South Africa’s transition from apartheid to democracy has been labeled a success. The growth in democratic institutions, transformation of the public service, extended basic services, and stabilization of the economy have been used to measure this success. Despite these successes, it is acknowledged that far too many South Africans are trapped in poverty, and South Africa still remains a highly unequal society. A major contributor to poverty and an unequal society is the poor quality of K–12 education for the majority and the continuation of that into higher education.

  • The doctoral dissertation and scholarly communication: Adapting to
           changing publication practices among graduate students
    • Authors: Roxanne Shirazi
      First page: 34
      Abstract: When I first began working with electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs), the conversation in libraries appeared to revolve around open access and publication embargoes. It seemed to me that the primary task for scholarly communication librarians in this area was to broaden access to graduate research while protecting future publication opportunities for individual authors. As graduate students begin to publish earlier in their careers, the relationship between the doctoral dissertation and scholarly publishing is evolving. Many students now include their own previously published work in a dissertation, requiring instruction in publication contracts and copyright transfer agreements at the point of submission to the graduate school.

  • Understanding the complexities of retractions: Recommended resources
    • Authors: Amy Riegelman, Caitlin Bakker
      First page: 38
      Abstract: Reasons for retracted publications range from honest errors made by authors or publishers to research misconduct (e.g., falsified data, fraudulent peer review). A retraction represents a status change of a publication in the scholarly literature. Other examples of status changes include correction or erratum. A retraction could be initiated by many parties, including authors, institutions, or journal editors. The U.S. National Library of Medicine annually reports on the number of retracted publications indexed within PubMed. While the overall rate of retractions is still very small, retractions have increased considerably in the last decade from 97 retracted articles in 2006 to 664 in 2016.1

  • C&RL Spotlight
    • Authors: Wendi Kaspar
      First page: 43
      Abstract: Between the ending and the beginningAs I write this C&RL Spotlight, which is to be published in January, it is the beginning of December. I can’t help but think about endings and beginnings and the space between them. I suppose that it is natural to be reflective at this time of year and to think about what we have experienced and what we have accomplished and what it means moving forward.
