      Abstract: Welcome to the July/August 2020 issue of C&RL News. Whether students return to campus for the fall term or continue to learn at a distance, food insecurity will be a major concern for many. Lana Mariko Wood of California State University-East Bay argues that academic libraries are in an ideal position to respond and details some of the initiatives put into place at her library and others to respond to this ongoing crisis in her article “Empty shelves.”

  • Empty shelves: How your academic library can address food insecurity
    • Authors: Lana Mariko Wood
      First page: 322
      Abstract: Researchers have only recently begun looking at food insecurity on college campuses. Food insecurity is characterized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) as limited or uncertain access to nutritionally adequate and safe foods or the ability to acquire acceptable foods in socially acceptable ways due to limited financial resources. Harmony Reppond illustrates this point when writing, “food insecurity for college students can mean running out of food between paychecks, attending campus events in search of food, reducing food intake, purchasing minimally nutritious food that costs less, skipping meals, and deciding between paying for textbooks or food.” Food insecurity is often an invisible condition because of the stigma associated with hunger and poverty. However, the extent and severity of food insecurity on college campuses is alarming. The U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) conducted a literature review and found that college student food insecurity rates exceeded 30% in the majority of published studies. The Hope Center at Temple University conducts an annual survey on student basic needs, which originally covered food and housing insecurity, and has since been expanded to include transportation, childcare, stress, and mental health. Over the last five years this survey has been completed by more than 330,000 students attending 411 colleges and universities, and the Hope Center has found that on average over the last five years 39% of respondents reported being food insecure in the prior 30 days. The rise of student food insecurity is linked to a decrease in public funding for higher education, which in turn has caused a steep increase in tuition rates, combined with more low-income students entering college.

  • When you only have a week: Rapid-response, grassroots public services for
           access, wellness, and student success
    • Authors: M. Wynn Tranfield, Doug Worsham, Nisha Mody
      First page: 326
      Abstract: The cascade of events following the global outbreak of COVID-19 produced exceptional examples of camaraderie, collaboration, and resourcefulness. In this article, we share two ways UCLA Library public services staff came together to rapidly re-envision learner-centered library services and support in response to the COVID-19 campus shutdown. In both cases, library staff adapted existing services (e.g., workshop delivery and tutorial design) to embrace remote technologies and scale to meet the needs of a greater number of learners.

  • Four health science librarians’ experiences: How they responded to the
           COVID-19 pandemic crisis
    • Authors: Misa Mi, Yingting Zhang, Lin Wu, Wendy Wu
      First page: 330
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has an unprecedented impact on the entire country. With exponential growth of COVID-19 cases in many areas, university administration and faculty faced mounting challenges on all fronts in meeting students’ needs in transition to remote learning environments. In the face of indefinite closure of libraries and university campuses, how could academic libraries respond to emerging needs in response to the rapidly evolving situation from one day to the next'

  • Library strategic planning after COVID-19: Don’t fight the last war
    • Authors: Russell A. Hall
      First page: 335
      Abstract: The big guns thumped out their deadly cargo all through the night. The artillery barrage was so relentless that the German offensive, such as it was, halted almost before it even began. All the planning, all the labor, and all the money spent allowed the French troops to remain nestled in the safety of their giant concrete fortresses, which were dug deeply into the security of the earth itself. The Maginot Line was a success. The long and bloody Great War would not be repeated.

  • Teaching information literacy: Developing an online course for faculty
    • Authors: Jane Hammons
      First page: 337
      Abstract: As part of the profession’s ongoing efforts to integrate information literacy into the curriculum, some librarians have taken an approach centered on teaching disciplinary faculty to teach information literacy. Indeed, some have argued that the best way for librarians to ensure that students are developing information literacy is to focus primarily on faculty, rather than on providing instruction to students. Although most librarians do not seem prepared to stop all direct instruction to students, there are many examples of libraries offering faculty development programming. While many of these programs involve face-to-face interactions between librarians and disciplinary faculty, there are examples of librarians creating online information literacy workshops or courses for faculty.

  • Negotiating big deals: ACRL/SPARC Forum at the 2020 ALA Midwinter Meeting
    • Authors: Gale S. Etschmaier, Robin N. Sinn, Jason Priem
      First page: 341
      Abstract: At the ACRL/SPARC Forum at the 2020 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia, three panelists discussed efforts to negotiate with vendors regarding “Big Deal” journal packages, including strategies and information that make such negotiations more effective for libraries. The three panelists provide their remarks below. Gale Etschmaier recounts negotiations between the Florida State University Libraries and Elsevier that led to the successful cancellation of their Elsevier “Big Deal.” Robin Sinn summarizes open access efforts at the Johns Hopkins University Libraries. And, finally, Jason Priem discusses his company’s product Unsub, a “data dashboard that helps libraries forecast, explore, and optimize their alternatives to the Big Deal, so they can unsubscribe with confidence.”

  • Outreach from academic libraries: Supporting our local school
           district’s diversity initiative
    • Authors: Stephanie Birch, Suzanne Stapleton, Margarita Vargas-Betancourt
      First page: 345
      Abstract: Campus and community outreach activities often play an essential role in fulfilling the mission of academic libraries at public institutions. At the University of Florida (UF), library employees are partnering with local schools to support student learning and development through the exploration of new technologies and historical resources. In past years, the UF Libraries have collaborated with local teachers to host academic library tours, collection exploration, and research workshops. The UF-Marston Science Library has also hosted Girls Tech Camp, a one-week summer camp to encourage middle school girls to pursue STEM education and careers. Building on these past activities, the UF Libraries conducted a pilot project in summer 2019 to support the diversity initiative of the local school district.

  • Dance research: Online resources
    • Authors: Carli Spina
      First page: 353
      Abstract: Dance is a topic that can foster many different types of research, reaching from historical topics to scientific ones. This makes it a fascinating topic for librarians, who may find themselves supporting a broad range of researchers and projects while working with dance resources. As with many research topics, there are a number of online resources that can help you to respond to patron requests and guide research about dance. Moreover, as a performing art, many online resources can prove particularly valuable for dance scholarship since they make it possible to find images and videos that offer a unique way for users to learn to dance or research dance topics for academic purposes.

  • C&RL Spotlight
    • Authors: Wendi Kaspar
      First page: 357
      Abstract: The preponderance of the articles in July issue of College & Research Libraries deal with topics related to technology. I note this with some irony as, due to social distancing and working from home, much of our work is happening through technology. Heck, it seems like our entire lived experience right now is computer-mediated! There has been a translation of the analog work experience into digital with Zoom meetings and email/chat consultations, not to mention the changes with the day-to-day minutiae with everything from ordering food, clothing, or other necessities (toilet paper') online to binge-watching and gaming in order to keep from going crazy with shelter-in-place orders to watching YouTube videos to stay in shape (my youngest daughter is now talking about bringing back Jazzercise'!).
