  • ACRL 2019 Call for Participation
    • Authors: Association of College & Research Libraries
      First page: 1
      Abstract: ACRL invites you to share your research and creative endeavors with your peers at ACRL 2019. Today’s academic and research libraries are vibrant and fast moving, responding quickly to, and anticipating changes in the higher education landscape. Just as our host city of Cleveland has undergone a revitalization, so too must librarians continually reinvent themselves to stay on the cutting edge. Join us in Recasting the Narrative of what it means to be a librarian in the 21st century, adapting and leading the transition to new roles.

      Abstract: Welcome to the November 2017 issue of C&RL News. The continued focus on the accuracy of information in both traditional and social media provides an important opportunity for academic and research librarians to provide information literacy instruction that is meaningful to students beyond their classroom assignments. In their article “Says who'” librarians from Aquinas College provide insight into a variety of classroom approaches to addressing “fake news” with undergraduate students.

  • Says who' Librarians tackle fake news
    • Authors: Shellie Jeffries, John Kroondyk, Francine Paolini, Christina Radisauskas
      First page: 538
      Abstract: Like many, the librarians at Aquinas College were concerned about the impact that fake—and just plain inaccurate—news had on the political discourse surrounding the 2016 election. Our concerns intensified when, on the heels of the election, the Stanford History Education Group (SHEG) released a study (Evaluating Information: The Cornerstone of Civic Online Reasoning) that revealed the difficulties many students have in distinguishing between real facts and erroneous information.

  • Be aware: Elevate your news evaluation: Emphasizing media literacy, one
           library’s initiative
    • Authors: Sara Davidson Squibb
      First page: 541
      Abstract: The following article outlines the University of California-Merced Library’s unfolding news evaluation campaign,1 shares our strategies, and reflects on our efforts. The impetus for this campaign came when a colleague shared Vanessa Otero’s News Quality Chart, a graphic that places news sources on X and Y axes, representing quality and partisan bias.2 Otero’s work, combined with increasing public concern and conversation about the legitimacy of news, propelled my colleagues and I to start discussing how we might emphasize media literacy, especially news evaluation. We started our discussion just prior to the spring semester, and we launched our campaign a few weeks later. Though this meant limited time for planning, we wanted to capitalize on this opportunity to promote information literacy by initiating and participating in a broader campus conversation about news evaluation.

  • Reference, reading, and nonreading: Learning from Bayard (with a grain of
           salt)
    • Authors: Evan F. Kuehn
      First page: 546
      Abstract: This spring I had the opportunity to teach an undergraduate course on the history of philosophy from René Descartes to William James. On most of our twice-weekly class sessions, I would bring a half-dozen or so books with me beyond the anthology we were working from. My duty as a librarian impelled me—there are riches untold (to freshman, at least) in our stacks, waiting to be unveiled. Usually these books were pulled haphazardly from my office shelves just before class. Sometimes they were checked out from our library, less often requested from elsewhere a week or two ahead of time because I actually knew what I wanted to talk about that far in advance. I would bring secondary literature to recommend for further research, other unassigned works by authors we were reading in the event that a first exposure might have sparked philosophical discipleship, along with living thinkers like Seyla Benhabib or Giorgio Agamben who have fruitfully picked up the threads of the Enlightenment problems we were considering.

  • Diversity of ACRL publications, editorial board demographics: A report
           from ACRL’s Publications Coordinating Committee
    • Authors: Emily Ford, Wendi Arant Kaspar, Peggy Seiden
      First page: 548
      Abstract: Two weeks prior to the 2017 ALA Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida, a hate-inspired mass murder occurred at the city’s Pulse night club. As a response to this horrific event, many meetings, discussions, and programs in Orlando refocused to the discuss diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts of ALA. The shock and horror of this tragedy gave more immediacy to initiatives already underway in ALA, and it inspired ACRL’s Publications Coordinating Committee (PCC) to make efforts to better integrate diversity, equity, and inclusion into the committee’s 2016 to 2017 work plan. This was but one small way for the ACRL publications to contribute to a positive environment, and to denounce the kind of hateful thoughts and heinous actions taken by many individuals in our country who continue to marginalize and oppress people and their communities.

  • Closing the divide: Subject librarians and scholarly communication
           librarians can work together to reach common goals
    • Authors: Cheryl A. Middleton
      First page: 552
      Abstract: As ACRL President, I am very interested in the changes that our members and the profession are experiencing and in making connections to our goals in the ACRL Plan for Excellence.1 Our plan enables ACRL to invest member resources in shaping policies and practices that enable us to meet the needs of our users and our institutions as they change over time. Over the past year, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about scholarly communication and the role of academic librarians, particularly subject or liaison librarians.

  • CREATE: Adapting the Framework to Studio Art disciplines
    • Authors: Amanda Meeks, Larissa Garcia, Ashley Peterson, Alyssa Vincent
      First page: 554
      Abstract: Because of its emphasis on knowledge practices and dispositions over prescriptive skills, the ACRL “Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education” resonates with subject specialist librarians who may have found it difficult to apply the ACRL “Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education” to their particular programs. For example, the research and corresponding library instruction that supports Studio Art coursework and artistic practice often looks very different from the methods used to conduct scholarship in other disciplines.

  • Signage UX: Updating library signs for a new generation
    • Authors: Michelle Eichelberger, Cindy Hagelberger, Stephanie Smith, Amy Westfall
      First page: 560
      Abstract: Like most college libraries, the Alfred C. O’Connell Library at Genesee Community College (GCC) struggles to find effective ways to tell students about upcoming events and new library services, and to promote library policies. Short of standing at the library entrance and personally notifying each entrant about each new initiative, it can be a big challenge to impart information about the library to our patrons.

  • Community engagement in higher education: Online information sources
    • Authors: Anne Marie Gruber
      First page: 563
      Abstract: In an age of challenging public discourse and increased pressure for educational accountability, many colleges are renewing their commitments to the public purposes of higher education. In fact, presidents and chancellors at more than 450 institutions signed Campus Compact’s 30th Anniversary Action Statement1 in 2016, reaffirming their dedication to preparing students for engaged citizenship, to changing social and economic inequalities, and to contributing to their communities as place-based institutions. In practical terms, many campuses are placing increased emphasis on real-world learning experiences for students through opportunities such as service-learning, internships, and community-based research.

  • C&RL Spotlight
    • Authors: Wendi Kaspar
      First page: 567
      Abstract: C&RL has selected a new social media editor in Ellen Filgo and are happy to welcome her. Through some discussions with Ellen, we have determined that there is opportunity to change the Spotlight up a little. The Spotlight has served as a kind of bridge between the scholarly, research-oriented content in C&RL and the more applied cases and best practices focus of C&RL News. While there is overlap between the readerships, the expectations of each are different. The Spotlight is intended to bring research to the attention of the C&RL News readership; however, these papers are not necessarily framed in such a way that the implications and benefits for practice are obvious. In addition, in an effort to be responsive to new forms of media and the popular venues for getting timely information, we are reframing and refocusing.

  • Washington Hotline

      Abstract: Congress’ Committee on House Administration this year began examining Title 44 of the U.S. Code, which is the authority for the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) and Government Publishing Office (GPO). This is an important opportunity for librarians to advocate for improvements to FDLP and public access to government information.FDLP was designed to ensure widespread and long-term public access to information produced by the federal government. The program is managed by GPO, formerly known as the Government Printing Office, a federal government agency that publishes information on behalf of all three branches of government.

  • Grants and Acquisitions
    • Authors: Ann-Christe Galloway
      First page: 574
      Abstract: Arizona State University (ASU) has been awarded a $450,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for a three-year project designed to build and expand community-driven collections, in an effort to preserve and improve ASU’s archives and give voice to historically marginalized communities. Under the leadership of ASU Library Archivist Nancy Godoy and coinvestigators Sujey Vega and Lorrie McAllister, the project—titled “Engaging, Educating, and Empowering: Developing Community-Driven Archival Collections”—will implement Archives and Preservation Workshops and Digitization and Oral History Days, as well as digitize and make publicly accessible existing archival collections from the ASU Library Chicano/a Research Collection and Greater Arizona Collection. In 2012, the Arizona Archives Matrix Project, a statewide initiative to gather data about local archives, identified several historically marginalized communities in Arizona, including LGBT, Asian American, African American, and the Latino community, which make up 30 percent of Arizona’s population but is represented in less than 2 percent of known archival collections. With the aim to address this inequity, the ASU project will build on Godoy’s previous work coestablishing the Arizona LGBT History Project and collaborating with ASU faculty members Vega and Vanessa Fonseca on an ASU School of Transborder Studies seed grant, which implemented archives and preservation workshops statewide and helped to assess community needs and interests.
