What role do university librarians play in access to research?

What role do university librarians play in access to research? | Library Science Matters | Scoop.it

With open access changing the ways research is disseminated, how can libraries make the most of resources and what support do they need?

 

Librarians have numerous roles to play in the growing digital environment, with the move towards open access prompting a profound change in the way university libraries manage their scholarly communications – not least in how they use online repositories for publishing and opening up access to research.

 

What are the responsibilities of the university library and librarian when it comes to university research access? How can librarians continue to add value through research repositories? And what support and collaboration do they need from their own institutions and the wider higher education sector?

 

Read the views of a panel of experts who discussed these and related questions here:  http://www.guardian.co.uk/higher-education-network/2013/jan/23/university-libraries-open-access-publishing

Filipino Librarian: Libraries as Buckets

Filipino Librarian: Libraries as Buckets | Library Science Matters | Scoop.it

"Libraries, archives, and museums are the buckets that allow us to draw the water from the well. Needless to say it is thus an absolute necessity that these be in good shape: no leaks, sufficiently large in size, and always ready to serve. For while available information is enormous, access to it is still quite limited. At this conference you have decided to look for better ways to provide access."  Words of wisdom from the Introductory speech of Fr. Jose M. Cruz, SJ at the 5th Rizal Library International Conference (RLIC) held at Ateneo de Manila University last 25-26 October 2012.

 

Full text of the speech is available here: http://filipinolibrarian.blogspot.com/2013/01/libraries-as-buckets.html

9 Reasons You’re Stuck Where You Are

9 Reasons You’re Stuck Where You Are | Library Science Matters | Scoop.it

Life is change; it is forever moving.  Staying stuck is a choice.

For it is a choice, not a chance, that determines your destiny.  The road may be long, but it’s wide open.  As Lao Tzu once said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”  If you don’t like the way your life is at the moment, you have the choice to change it.  Actually, you owe it to yourself to change it.  But you can only shift your current situation one small step at a time.

Guidelines for Professional Library/Information Educational Programs - 2012 | IFLA

Guidelines for Professional Library/Information Educational Programs - 2012 | IFLA | Library Science Matters | Scoop.it

These guidelines replace the last significant revision in 2000 and incorporate the inclusion of material in library school curricula that reflects the developments in the provision of library and information services in the 21st century. 

 

They set the framework for the necessary objectives for library and information educational programmes: the requirements of core and useful curriculum elements to be included in teaching programmes, the faculty, staff and student requirements for these programmes and the need for the programmes to be well supported by information and other resources.

Assessing Campus Libraries

Assessing Campus Libraries | Library Science Matters | Scoop.it

Students are satisfied overall with the role academic libraries play in their lives, but more than a third of them do not see the libraries as crucial to their academic success, according to a new survey.

 

The study, conducted by Library Journal, gathered data from 2,516 students at four- and two-year colleges about their opinions and habits in relation to their campus libraries and online library portals.

In many respects libraries fared well.

 

The survey found that more than half (55 percent) of students typically find what they are looking for on a typical visit to either libraries or library portals.

 

“Of notable concern is the decrease in assurance that the academic library helps students understand what is being learned in class and offers unique support,” write the authors of the report, which is not freely available.

Librarianship and Freedom of Expression in the Era of the Global Internet

Librarianship and Freedom of Expression in the Era of the Global Internet | Library Science Matters | Scoop.it

There is a lot of concern in the modern world about how the internet has impacted freedom of expression. This is especially true in the U.S., where speech is protected from government interference by the First Amendment of the Constitution.

 

From the purely professional perspective of a librarian who is trying to organize information into easily-accessible catalogs and databases, there is certainly a strong reason to be in favor of the free exchange of information over the internet, without governmental restrictions, as it makes getting a holistic collection of our society’s views much easier.

 

Most would agree that a librarian, by profession, believes in giving the type of assistance that will allow others to empower themselves with knowledge, and the question of how good librarians can be at this task hangs in the balance as governments and private corporations decide what sort of speech is protected in this new era of a truly globalized internet. Our profession, then, has an obligation to weigh in on this debate.
