  • In with the Old: Encouraging Archives Use with Innovative Faculty Outreach

    • Authors: Kimberly Veliz et al.
      Abstract: In order to encourage archives usage, an instruction librarian and archivist at a small community college collaborated to design an interactive instruction session for faculty. The session was to use breakout boxes to demonstrate how to incorporate archival materials into classroom activities at an institution wide professional development workshop event. Plans for an in-person breakout box session were scrapped after the COVID-19 Omicron wave forced workshops online. After designing and carrying out an online archives introduction, the session was reconfigured back into an in-person session utilizing breakout boxes. Despite lower-than-expected attendance, the innovative outreach made faculty and staff aware of the fledgling archives and provided new methods of providing outreach to faculty and staff.

  • Increasing Accessibility to Academic Library Services with Alt Text, Color
           Contrast, Captioning, and Transcripts in YouTube Tutorials

    • Authors: Barbara M. Pope et al.
      Abstract: Accessibility of library resources and services in academic libraries is fundamental to serving the discovery and scholarship needs of students and faculty, regardless of disability status. Equitable access in higher education affects student grades and retention, and within the library, involves making library buildings, video tutorials, library instruction, the website, Libguides, and resources accessible to students. Accessibility is vital for disabled students to obtain a college degree. It complies with federal law while improving access to education for all students, such as English as a second language students, undiagnosed disabled students, and students with different learning styles. This article focuses on how using alt text, color contrast analysis, closed captioning, and transcripts can improve the accessibility of library video tutorials, assisting the disabled and non-disabled students alike in their discovery and scholarship.

  • The Cynefin Framework: A Retrospective Application to University Library
           Leadership COVID-19 Responses

    • Authors: Alexis M. Eberth
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to investigate how university library leadership retrospectively applied the Cynefin framework to COVID-19 responses. Developed using the principles of complexity theory, the Cynefin framework is a sense-making framework that assists those who use it with decision making in ordered and un-ordered situations. The framework comprises five domains: (a) clear, (b) complicated, (c) complex, (d) chaotic, and (e) aware and confused. Because problems are ever-evolving, the cyclical nature of the Cynefin framework allows for and encourages transitions between domains. Through reflection on their experiences during the pandemic, library leaders can utilize the framework’s tenets to make future decisions.

  • Education and Entertainment: Developing new pathways to student engagement
           through Library Services and Student Life partnerships

    • Authors: Ruth A. Monnier et al.
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic caused higher ed professionals to pivot how they engage students in programs and events. For the 2020-2021 academic year, Pittsburg State University’s Student Life and Library Services created a series of virtual trivia nights. This paper will use the virtual trivia series as a case study to demonstrate the beneficial partnership between Student Life and Library Services at Pittsburg State University. This paper will highlight successes and suggestions on bridging the gap and replicating such a partnership at your institution.

  • Promoting University Inventors: Patent Collection in Shocker Open Access

    • Authors: Susan J. Matveyeva Dr. et al.
      Abstract: Wichita State University is known for its advances in STEM research for many decades, but there were few inventions patented by WSU. In recent years, commercialization of the results of applied research, especially bioengineering, became a university focus; the number of WSU owned patents increased significantly. WSU initiated several initiatives to support university inventors. These included the development of the Innovation Campus and WSU Venture. The Wichita State University Libraries decided to join these efforts by not only providing information to inventors as a Patent and Trademark Resource Center but to archive and increase awareness of their patents. To increase the visibility of the work of WSU inventors, Wichita State University librarians created a collection of Wichita State Patents in the university's institutional repository SOAR: Shocker Open Access Repository (Wichita State University Patents, 2016). Patent records within SOAR are unique compared to those previously established. This paper details our preparation for this project, such as learning best practices, patent databases, vocabulary and classification, development of guidelines, steps in creation and maintenance of the collection, and its usage.

  • Self-Service Technology and the Impact on Academic Libraries: A
           Perspective Piece by an Access Services Specialist

    • Authors: Crystal Hutchinson
      Abstract: AbstractSelf service technology (SST) is inundating the library world with more efficient forms of service for the library user experience. There are different types of SST and each type creates challenges and opportunities in the academic library. This multi-varied approach provides quality support to users who are unfamiliar with the technology, and offers time expediency to those who are adept at using SST. This persuasive paper will show what Kansas academic libraries currently have in the form of SST and encourage libraries to adopt new methods of service. The goal is to get you excited about SST and relieve any apprehension about implementing new technology in your academic library.Keywords: self-service technology, SST, academic libraries, Kansas libraries, human interaction, quality customer service, ROI, return on investment, community analysis

  • Affordable Digital Signage with Raspberry Pi

    • Authors: H. Andrew Tincknell
      Abstract: Digital Signage is a great way to inform library users about programs, events, services, and other library news. Unfortunately, digital signage can be difficult to implement and come with pricey monthly charges. When looking for ways to implement versatile digital signage, Fort Hays State University’s Forsyth Library and Learning Commons discovered an affordable and easy to manage solution - the Raspberry Pi. In this paper, you will discover what Raspberry Pis are and how to purchase and install them. You’ll also learn about several methods for creating messages.

  • Selling Your Library to the College Community: A Look into Promoting an
           Underused Library to Ensure Student Support

    • Authors: Tyler J. Johnson
      Abstract: Academic libraries have a major impact on their community. Yet, academic libraries often face challenges regarding funding, overall usage, and relevancy to the institution in the eyes of stakeholders. This requires academic librarians to work even harder to promote their library to the community. The term sales may have a negative connotation among many people, but academic librarians have been suggesting that librarians adopt certain sales techniques to support their communities. This article delves into the need for librarians to use certain sales techniques to promote the library to their community with a focus on ensuring student support. Specifically, this article is based on a study at a small college library, but the techniques are applicable to libraries of all sizes in promoting services and resources.

  • A Tale of Two Systems: One Library’s Experience Migrating to a New
           System and Back

    • Authors: Art Gutierrez
      Abstract: The decision to migrate to a new library system is generally a long-term decision. The integrated library system, which some now call library platforms, impact many if not all facets of the library experience. Making a transition to a new system impacts all staff and our patrons on some level. In addition to the traditional services included in a library system we are increasingly seeing new services pop-up including electronic resource management systems, discovery layers, and program management systems, as part of the new library platforms. According to Marshall Breeding’s, Library Perceptions 2017 Survey, a little more than 28% of libraries surveyed were “shopping” for a new system.The William Allen White Library, at Emporia State University, after roughly 20 years with Innovative Interfaces, Inc,. decided to migrate to OCLC’s WorldShare Management Services(WMS). The migration began mid-2013 and WMS went live in January 2014. Fast forward to 2017, where the decision was made to migrate back to Innovative Interfaces, Inc.. The migration began Fall 2017 with an eventual go-live date of June 2018 for Innovative Interfaces, Inc’s, Sierra system. This presentation will focus on this library’s experiences ending with recommendations for migration projects.

  • Effect of Virtual Reality on Learning Motivation and Academic Performance:
           What Value May VR Have for Library Instruction'

    • Authors: Brady D. Lund et al.
      Abstract: The research on whether Virtual Reality (VR) has a positive effect on student learning and engagement is limited. This study aims to examine what impact VR has on student learning motivation and performance. The study conducted by Wang (2017) revealed that VR had a marginally positive impact on student scores and a strong impact on students’ learning engagement. It indicates that VR provides a small improvement in academic performance and a large improvement in student engagement. The application of VR in libraries focuses on providing the VR tools to learn subjects in STEM and history fields. For one-off instructional settings, the boost of learning motivation may increase interest in further investigation and retention. For semester-long courses, increased learning motivation may decrease student attrition or “failure” in the information literacy course.

  • A Comparison of Cataloger and Non-Cataloger Responses to a Survey of
           Perceptions and Preference toward Dewey Decimal and Library of Congress

    • Authors: Brady D. Lund
      Abstract: Serving as a follow-up to Lund and Agbaji’s 2018 surveys of library employee preferences towards Dewey Decimal and Library of Congress Classification schemes, this study presents inferential comparisons between the responses of cataloging librarians’ and non-cataloging librarians perceptions and preferences towards DDC and LCC. The hypothesis for this research is that, based on the cataloger’s expertise in cataloging and classification relative to the average employee, they may have substantially different perceptions/preferences toward library classification schemes. The data, however, do not reflect such a difference. Instead, we find no statistically significant difference between the perceptions of catalogers and non-catalogers and only a small difference in preference exists, which can be explained by confounding variables. This suggests that although cataloging librarians have specialized knowledge about classification, their opinions about classification schemes are not distinct from their non-cataloging peers.

  • Adventures in Rightsizing : Enhancing Discovery and Research With Open
           Access Journals in the University Library

    • Authors: Barbara M. Pope
      Abstract: Academic libraries have long had print journal collections to support the university’s discovery and research needs. However, they are also continually challenged with needs for relevant content, cost control, and space issues; some academic libraries have downsized their print journal collections as a result. Many academic libraries are replacing some print journal subscriptions with online subscriptions and supplementing with open access journals. Pittsburg State University’s (PSU) Axe Library faces the challenge of providing journal access in order to support the university’s needs and stay on budget. To that end, PSU drastically weeded its print journals in 2016 and later began to rightsize the subscription print and online journals. In 2017, it also began rightsizing open access journals due to noticing high usage statistics for open access journals not in the library’s journal portal, duplication of open access journals in various open access databases, and bad URLs for open access journals. This article details PSU’s efforts to rightsize open access journals with the goal being a relevant journal collection and services to enhance the discovery and research experience.

  • Overcoming Change: Creating a Workflow with a Change Management Process

    • Authors: Sarah Richelle Johnson
      Abstract: In technical services, workflows are critical for ensuring that resources are made available for patrons in a consistent and efficient manner. When a library undergoes major changes, it is critical to ensure that processes are going to be maintained or altered to meet the new needs of the library. From 2018 to 2019, William Allen White Library, at Emporia State University tackled multiple transitions in their technical services department by creating a change management process that walked them through the development of a new workflow. The article discusses the changes they made, the challenges they faced, the process that they tailored to meet their unique needs, and the goal of their workflow.
