"When Does Burnout Begin? the Relationship between Graduate School Employment and Burnout Amongst Librarians"

Posted in Libraries on October 17th, 2019

Jade Geary and Brittany Hickey have published "When Does Burnout Begin? the Relationship between Graduate School Employment and Burnout Amongst Librarians" in In the Library with the Lead Pipe.

Here's an excerpt:

The purpose of this study was to identify the percentage of LIS workers (current and former) and students who have experienced burnout. Additionally, this study focused on the correlation between those who work while obtaining their LIS degree and whether or not they later experience burnout. These objectives aim to answer the question: what percentage of future librarians are more susceptible to burnout once they enter the profession because they are currently working while enrolled in classes?

"WCAG 2.1 and the Current State of Web Accessibility in Libraries"

Posted in Libraries, Research Libraries, Standards on October 9th, 2019

Carli Spina has published "WCAG 2.1 and the Current State of Web Accessibility in Libraries " in Weave.

Here's an excerpt:

Ensuring the accessibility of web content is key to ensuring that users with disabilities have equal access to online information and services. However, as a review of the literature demonstrates, even in the face of legal requirements, accessibility problems persist across the web, including in the online content created and shared by libraries. This article examines the new success criteria in the recently released WCAG 2.1, considers the opportunity they present for libraries to improve the user experience for users with a broad range of disabilities, and proposes steps to improve compliance with WCAG and online accessibility more broadly.

"’How Do I Do That?’ A Literature Review of Research Data Management Skill Gaps of Canadian Health Sciences Information Professionals"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Libraries on August 15th, 2019

Justin Fuhr has published "'How Do I Do That?' A Literature Review of Research Data Management Skill Gaps of Canadian Health Sciences Information Professionals" in the Journal of the Canadian Health Libraries Association.

Here's an excerpt:

There is a recognized need to provide research data management (RDM) services in health sciences libraries. A review of the literature reveals numerous strategies to provide training for health sciences librarians as they provide RDM services to health sciences researchers, faculty, and students. However, no consensus emerges through this literature review with respect to RDM training initiatives. With training initiatives being developed and documented, more in-depth research will emerge that verifies which initiatives have the greatest success for upskilling information professionals in managing research data. This is an area where future library and information studies research can be conducted. It is the hope that with this literature review, I can conduct my own survey to gain more perspective on RDM in a Canadian health sciences library context.

"Revisiting Controlled Digital Lending Post-ReDigi"

Posted in Copyright, Libraries, License Agreements/Contracts, Publishing, Research Libraries, Scholarly Journals on February 21st, 2019

Michelle M. Wu has self-archived "Revisiting Controlled Digital Lending Post-ReDigi."

Here's an excerpt:

Now that the Second Circuit has ruled on the ReDigi appeal, some libraries and users may be curious to see how the decision factors into controlled digital lending (CDL) efforts. To understand the interest and the implications, we first need to establish the basic contours of copyright, fair use, CDL, and ReDigi.

"Towards More Consistent, Transparent, and Multi-Purpose National Bibliographic Databases for Research Output"

Posted in Libraries, Metadata, Research Libraries on November 14th, 2018

Linda Sile et al. have published "Towards More Consistent, Transparent, and Multi-Purpose National Bibliographic Databases for Research Output" in the LSE Impact Blog.

Here's an excerpt:

Even though the various national databases differ in terms of implementation and organisation, the challenges faced are rather similar. These range from specific technical tasks such as record deduplication, to more theoretical debates on principles that should guide the work with national bibliographic databases. However, perhaps the most pertinent issue is the need for reliable (persistent) identifiers for all research information entities. Author identifiers, research organisation identifiers, digital object identifiers – all of these could, in the long run, establish a more stable research information environment where different datasets can be integrated across institutional, regional, and even national contexts.
