Online Doc Call for Book Chapters – Textbooks and Academic Libraries

by Keri Cascio-IL (staff) on Wed, Feb 24, 2016 at 01:40 pm

Proposal call: chapters for an ALCTS publication on collecting/managing textbooks in Academic Libraries
Proposal submission deadline: April 1st, 2016
Publisher: Association of Library Collections & Technical Services
Editor: Chris Diaz, Collection Management Librarian at National Louis University  

The Association of Collections & Technical Services is seeking proposals for case studies, literature reviews, research, and essays on how academic libraries are responding to the demand for textbooks.

Proposal call: chapters for an ALCTS publication on collecting/managing textbooks in Academic Libraries
Proposal submission deadline: April 1st, 2016
Publisher: Association of Library Collections & Technical Services
Editor: Chris Diaz, Collection Management Librarian at National Louis University  

The Association of Collections & Technical Services is seeking proposals for case studies, literature reviews, research, and essays on how academic libraries are responding to the demand for textbooks.

College textbook prices rise every year, and students are looking for affordable alternatives, such as purchasing used copies, renting copies for a limited time, or not purchasing a copy at all. Students, faculty, and campus administrators naturally look to the library for support. Librarians are finding creative ways to help accommodate the demand for textbooks and other course materials through electronic textbook initiatives, open textbook projects, and partnerships with publishers and bookstores.

How has your library responded to this demand?

We seek proposals on strategy, assessment, implementation, communication, research, and management of library initiatives to manage textbooks, open educational resources, or other course materials, along with changes to policy or practice.

Possible chapter topics:

* What involvement do academic libraries have – or should have – in supporting textbooks?
* What successful practices has your library implemented in regards to funding, implementing, and/or managing textbook projects?
* What opportunities or challenges are presented to academic libraries with the increasing availability of electronic textbooks and course materials?
* How might academic library collections support the delivery of electronic textbooks?
* Is your library working with campus partners, such as the book store, university press, or IT department, to deliver course materials? What’s working and what’s not?
* Have programs or courses on your campus adopted open textbooks or open educational resources? If so, what worked and what didn’t?
* What effect do electronic textbooks have on student learning outcomes, retention, and/or reading experience?

Proposals should include:

* Author name(s)
* Brief author(s) bio
* Proposed chapter title
* A summary of the proposed chapter (300-500) words

Authors of selected proposals will be notified by April 15, 2016.  Full chapters are expected by August 1, 2016 (3,000-5,000 words).  Chapters should be unique to this publication – no previously published or simultaneously submitted materials.

For additional information, please contact: Chris Diaz, Collection Management Librarian at National Louis University, cdiaz10@nl.edu

This session is part 1 of the 2-part series, The Future of Technical Services:

  1. Is Technical Services Dead? An Overview of the Future of Traditional Services

  2. Current Trends & New Skills in Technical Services

Description: The webinar considers a provocative question: Is technical services dead?

In the first part of the webinar, presenters discuss the recent past, the present and the future of cataloging and technical services. They will explore whether there is a future for “traditional” acquisitions and cataloging and other technical services skills. Can we continue to divide our attention between print materials and electronic, digital, and streaming media when there are new resources and responsibilities competing for our budgets and administrators’ attention?

In the second part of the webinar, they will explores metadata, MARC, and more and will address the questions: does MARC matter with RDA? Will RDA live up to its promise? Is schema agnostic preferable to using MARC, MODS, or Dublin Core? Is BIBFRAME a viable alternative to MARC?

Learning outcomes: Participants will discover ways to examine the skills and knowledge needed for contemporary technical services work and how these skills relate to traditional technical services.

Who should attend? Professionals, paraprofessionals, and library science students who work in or who would like to work in technical services.

Presenters:

Amy K. Weiss is the Head of Cataloging and Description at Florida State University. She previously worked at UC-Santa Barbara, Appalachian State University, and Ball State University.

Discussion New ALCTS monograph spotlights collaborative stewardship of collections

by Brooke Morris (staff) on Mon, Apr 18, 2016 at 01:26 pm

Libraries and the organizations that provide services to them are devoting more attention to system-wide organization of collections—whether the "system" is a consortium, a region or a country.  As a strategy for saving space and money while expanding access to additional materials and resources, the value of shared collections is indubitable.  “Shared Collections: Collaborative Stewardship,” published by ALA Editions, spotlights the histories and experiences of several collaborations at academic libraries.

Libraries and the organizations that provide services to them are devoting more attention to system-wide organization of collections—whether the "system" is a consortium, a region or a country.  As a strategy for saving space and money while expanding access to additional materials and resources, the value of shared collections is indubitable.  “Shared Collections: Collaborative Stewardship,” published by ALA Editions, spotlights the histories and experiences of several collaborations at academic libraries. In this monograph from the Association of Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS), edited by Dawn Hale, contributors share winning strategies for intentional decision-making in developing and managing shared collections, both print and digital, with expert guidance such as:

  • analysis of six consortia case studies, ranging from giants like CIC and CARL to regional collaborations like the State of Maine and Manhattan research libraries
  • elements to address in a memo of understanding among participating institutions
  • risk assessment methodologies that enable institutions to focus local resources where they will provide the greatest return; and
  • costs to anticipate for budgeting, such as collection analysis, space, validation, transport, staff, and administration.

Hale is the Head of Technical Services at the Sheridan Libraries, Johns Hopkins University, where she is responsible for the library’s acquisitions, cataloging, and e-resources management and access. She served on the Editorial Board of the ALCTS Monographs Series, on the LRTS Editorial Board, the Ross Atkinson Lifetime Achievement Award Committee, the ALA Committee on Professional Ethics, the ALA Standards Committee, various LITA scholarship committees, as well as on several OCLC groups.

ALA Store purchases fund advocacy, awareness and accreditation programs for library professionals worldwide. ALA Editions publishes resources used worldwide by tens of thousands of library and information professionals to improve programs, build on best practices, develop leadership, and for personal professional development.

Event ALCTS e-Forum: I’m Lost: The Future of Cataloging and Metadata Management for the Rest of Us

by Jeremy Myntti on Thu, Apr 14, 2016 at 05:32 pm

ALCTS e-Forum: I’m Lost: The Future of Cataloging and Metadata Management for the Rest of Us

ALCTS e-Forum: I’m Lost: The Future of Cataloging and Metadata Management for the Rest of Us

May 3-4, 2016

 

Moderated by Karl Pettitt and April Grey

 

Please join us for an e-forum discussion. It’s free and open to everyone!

Registration information is at the end of the message.

 

Each day, discussion begins and ends at:

Pacific: 7 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Mountain: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Central: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Eastern: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

 

Many discussions these days focus on the technical or theoretical questions surrounding the direction that cataloging and metadata management is headed in the world of libraries. While our colleagues at larger institutions work on these issues, many of us are left wondering, “What should I be doing right now to prepare for the future?” Most of us are not computer programmers or experts in the semantic web. But do we really need to be? This forum will discuss some of the concerns and questions we have about the future of cataloging and metadata management. We will look at areas we would like training in right now to prepare us for the future. The focus will be on practical, hands-on training ideas that can be implemented in our current environment of uncertainty.

 

Moderators

Karl Pettitt is the Technical Services Librarian at the David C. Shapiro Memorial Law Library at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL. He previously served as the Catalog Librarian at Wheaton College, IL.

 

April Grey is the Director of Library Collections, Discovery, and Access Services at Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC. She received her M.L.S. from the University at Buffalo. Previously she was the Catalog Librarian at Adelphi University.
