ItemReport of the Core Role of the Professional Librarian in Technical Services Interest Group, American Library Association Annual Conference, June 2022(Taylor & Francis, 2022-12-15) Morgan, MarinaThe Core Role of Professional Librarians in Technical Services Interest Group (RPLTS-IG) meeting was held in person during the American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference on Sunday, June 26, 2022, in Washington D.C. and was moderated by the Interest Group’s Co-Chair Sofia Slutskaya of Emory University, and Vice Co-Chairs Marina Morgan of Florida Southern College and Amy Fry of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The meeting consisted of four round tables where discussion facilitators led the conversation and encouraged participants to share their thoughts, opinions, and ideas. The topics covered in four discussion groups included “Exploring Normalcy in Technical Services,” led by Jennifer M. Eustis, Metadata Librarian, University of Massachusetts Amherst; “Telling the Technical Services Story,” led by Jessie Copeland, Director, Resource Services at Emory University Libraries; “Technical Services Retreat: Professional Development, Wellness, and Team Building for Technical Services,” led by Cara Calabrese, Acquisitions & Access Librarian, Miami University; “Technical Services Advocacy Outside of Tech Services,” led by Amanda Ros, Coordinator of Adaptive Cataloging & Resource Management, Texas A&M University. ItemThe Virtual Graduate Research Marathon: Remote Library Instruction for Doctoral Candidates(Libraries Unlimited, 2022) Morgan, Marina; Hornick, Julie N.; MacDonald, Randall M.; Wade, StevenThis book includes narratives from diverse settings of lessons learned and sustainable practices to prepare educators and librarians for any challenges that might arise in the future. ItemAuthor identifier analysis: Name authority control in two institutional repositories(International Conference on Dublin Core and Metadata Applications, 2018-11-05) Morgan, MarinaThe aim of this poster is to analyze name authority control in two institutional repositories to determine the extent to which faculty researchers are represented in researcher identifier databases. A purposive sample of 50 faculty authors from Florida Southern College (FSC) and Ryerson University (RU) were compared against five different authority databases: Library of Congress Name Authority File (LCNAF), Scopus, Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID), Virtual International Authority File (VIAF), and International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI). We first analyzed the results locally, then compared them between the two institutions. The findings show that while LCNAF and Scopus results are comparable between the two institutions, the difference in the ORCID, VIAF, and ISNI are considerable. Additionally, the results show that the majority of authors at each institution are represented in two or three external databases. This has implications for enhancing local authority data by linking to external identifier authority data to augment institutional repository metadata. ItemReport of the Association of College & Research Libraries Technical Services Interest Group Meeting, American Library Association Annual Virtual Meeting, June 2021(Taylor & Francis, 2022) Marina, MorganThe article offers reports related to technical services meetings held in June-July 2021. It notes reports on new developments including integrated library systems, next generation catalogs, and reports from professional meetings. Reports include the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Technical Services Interest Group (TSIG) meeting; the American Library Association Core Linked Data Interest Group Meeting; and the Core MARC Formats Transition Interest Group Meeting. ItemORCID ids in the open knowledge era(Springer International Publishing, 2021-05-21) Morgan, Marina; Eichenlaub, NaomiThe focus of this poster is to highlight the importance of sufficient metadata in ORCID records for the purpose of name disambiguation. In 2017 the authors counted ORCID iDs containing minimal information. They invoked RESTful API calls using Postman software and searched ORCID records created between 2012–2017 that did not include affiliation or organization name, Ringgold ID, and any work titles. A year later, they reproduced the same API calls and compared with the results achieved the year before. The results reveal that a high number of records are still minimal or orphan, thus making the name disambiguation process difficult. The authors recognize the benefit of a unique identifier that facilitates name disambiguation and remain confident that with continued work in the areas of system interoperability and technical integration, alongside continued advocacy and outreach, ORCID will grow and develop not only in number of iDs but also in metadata robustness. ItemReport of the Core Role of the Professional Librarian in Technical Services Interest Group, Core Virtual Interest Group Week(Taylor & Francis, 2022-07-24) Morgan, Marina; Slutskaya, SofiaCore Interest Group Week takes place each year, during the first week of March. The Role of the Professional Librarian in Technical Services (RPLTS) Interest Group (IG) was one of the 25 interest groups that met between March 7 and 11, 2022. The program featured three presentations covering management, training, and documentation in technical services. The meeting had 469 registrations for the virtual event, 251 of whom attended live. ItemBringing a small archival collection to life on the web: Remembering the real Winnie(DCMI, 2015-09-05) Wilson, Sally; Morgan, MarinaThe purpose of this poster is to provide insight into the processes involved in creating an interdisciplinary online exhibition focused on a unique chapter of Canadian history from World War I. The exhibition focuses on the Colebourn Family Archive comprising digitized photographs and ephemera of Canadian soldier and veterinarian Harry Colebourn (1887–1947) who purchased a pet bear named Winnie who later became A. A. Milne’s inspiration for the classic Winnie-the-Pooh children's book series. ItemReport of the ACRL Technical Services Interest Group Meeting, American Library Association Midwinter Virtual Meeting, January 2021(Taylor & Francis, 2021-12-16) Morgan, MarinaThe ACRL Technical Services Interest Group (TSIG) met virtually during the American Library Association Midwinter Meeting on Sunday, January 24, 2021. The 2020–2021 convener, Marina Morgan, started the session by introducing Dave Van Kleeck of University of Florida as the ACRL Technical Services Interest Group incoming convener.

ItemReport of the ALCTS Cataloging and Metadata Management Section (CaMMS) Catalog Management Interest Group Meeting, American Library Association Midwinter Meeting, Philadelphia, January 2020(Taylor & Francis, 2020-07-08) Do, Dan Tam; Morgan, MarinaThe ALCTS CaMMS Catalog Management Interest Group meeting at the 2020 American Library Association (ALA) Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia consisted of three presentations, entitled “Cataloger’s Judgment: Bringing Ethical Considerations into a Fluid Space,” “Implementing Local Alternatives to the ‘Illegal aliens’ LCSH,” and “Strategies and Tools for Transforming Unstructured Metadata into Structured Linked Data.” A general discussion and questions from the audience followed the presentations. ItemProfessional or Predatory?: Distinguishing Legitimate from Illegitimate in an Era of Open Access(2022-01-07) Hornick, Julie N.; Wade, Steven; Morgan, MarinaOf interest to faculty who publish or present at conferences, this session examines the common practices and warning signs of predatory journals and conferences, along with readily available resources useful for avoiding predation and increasing the impact of your research. We will also discuss the Directory of Open Access Journals, a community-curated list that aims to be the starting point for all searches for quality, peer-reviewed, open access material, and SHERPA/RoMEO, an online aggregator and analyzer of publisher open access policies from around the world that provides summaries of self-archiving permissions and conditions of rights given to authors on a journal-by-journal basis. ItemReport of the ALCTS Cataloging and Metadata Management Section (CaMMS) Catalog Management Interest Group Meeting, ALCTS Virtual Interest Group Week, June 2020(Taylor & Francis, 2021-04-30) Morgan, Marina; Do, Dan TamThe 2020 ALA Annual Conference & Exhibition scheduled for June 25-30, 2020, in Chicago, IL, was canceled. In lieu of face-to-face meetings at the Annual Conference, ALCTS held a Virtual Interest Group Week, June 8-12, 2020. The ALCTS CaMMS Catalog Management Interest Group meeting during the ALCTS Virtual Interest Group Week consisted of two presentations, entitled “Breaking Rules and Preserving Legacies for Digital Access” and “Improving Local Holdings Records.” A general discussion and questions from the audience followed the presentations. 513 registered for the virtual event and approximately 265 attended the live presentations. ItemProfessional or Predatory?: Distinguishing Legitimate from Illegitimate in an Era of Open Access(2019-05-16) Hornick, Julie N.; Wade, Steven; Morgan, MarinaThis session covers the common practices and warning signs of predatory journals and conferences, and highlights resources useful for avoiding predation. Attendees will leave with a model for communicating the characteristics of predatory publishing practices and conferences with librarians, faculty, students, and researchers. ItemThe Research Sprint: Faculty as Learners in an Academic Library(2018-10) Galbraith, Nora; Hornick, Julie N.; Morgan, Marina; Schaad, Gerrianne; Wade, StevenTraditionally, FSC librarians have offered professional development to campus faculty. However, as attendance at the workshop fell, the sessions were canceled. To revive interest, we found inspiration in a summer program we offer – the Faculty Research Marathon – when the library is reserved for faculty research and writing. Supplementing the Marathon format with information useful for faculty, we rebranded our workshops as a Research Sprint, with each session providing focused work time after a brief presentation about library resources. The PDI was successfully implemented, and sign-up numbers were high. Feedback was positive, with suggestions including a library tour for new faculty, handouts, and shortening the presentation time. Participants also requested resources to help track research and information on leveraging social media for research sharing. ItemNew Take on Name Authority Control in a Digital Repository(2019-01-26) Morgan, MarinaThe focus of the presentation is the analysis of name authority control in the Florida Southern College Digital Repository to determine the extent to which faculty researchers are represented in researcher identifier databases. A purposive sample of 50 faculty authors were compared against five different databases: Library of Congress Name Authority File (LCNAF), Scopus, Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID), Virtual International Authority File (VIAF), and International Standard Name Identifier (ISNI). The findings show that while LCNAF and Scopus results are comparable, the difference in the ORCID, VIAF, and ISNI are considerable. Additionally, the results show that the majority of authors are represented in two or three external databases. This has implications for enhancing local authority data by linking to external identifier authority data to augment institutional repository metadata. ItemStop! Don’t Share That Story!: Designing a Pop-Up Undergraduate Workshop on Fake News(Taylor & Francis, 2018-10) Wade, Steven; Hornick, Julie N.For the past few years librarians across the country have been leaders in the fight against fake news. This article describes an hour-long drop-in lesson given to undergraduate students on how to avoid falling victim to fake news. Particular emphasis is placed on how social media platforms contribute to the spread of bad information, and how students can alter their habits in order to help combat fake news in their own social circle. The lesson includes four engaged learning activities and can be taught without student access to computers. This low-tech approach is highly adaptable to different settings and class sizes. Students leave the session with the resources and knowledge to see past deceptive practices in the media and to take a more thoughtful approach to news consumption. ItemProfessional or Predatory?: Distinguishing Legitimate from Illegitimate in an Era of Open Access(2018-08-17) Hornick, Julie N.; Wade, Steven; Morgan, MarinaAt the end of this presentation, you will distinguish the common practices and warning signs of predatory journals and conferences, along with readily available resources useful for avoiding predation and increasing the impact of your research. We will also discuss the Directory of Open Access Journals and SHERPA/RoMEO. ItemAugmenting Orientation: Animating an Interactive Welcome Event at an Academic Library with AR and VR(Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2018-06-15) Hornick, Julie N.; Wade, StevenThe chapter begins with some background on the technological climate of the summer of 2016, and a consideration of library anxiety. We then discuss how we were led to choose the Aurasma augmented reality and Google Cardboard virtual reality apps based on student interest. The chapter will conclude with a description of how we set up the event. With this case study, we hope to provide similar organizations, as well as school or public libraries without extensive in-house IT support, but with enthusiastic library staff, with an easy-to-follow model of the planning process and steps taken to set up these interactive activities. ItemDesigning a Successful Professional Development Initiative(Learning Round Table of the American Library Association, 2018-03) Galbraith, NoraThe Teaching and Learning Center at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida, offers professional development initiatives (PDI) to the faculty every fall and spring. For two years the librarians at Florida Southern’s Roux Library offered to conduct a PDI, but not enough faculty members signed up for the classes and they were canceled. To increase the appeal, we decided to rethink our proposal and considered what has been successful for us. ItemDiscovering What Works(2018-02-10) Hornick, Julie N.; Morgan, Marina; Wade, StevenFlorida Southern College ran a live comparison of two major discovery platforms with a goal of choosing one based on cost, usability, and user preference. Results led to the selection of a system and feedback from the study led to upgrading the existing discovery system, refined data mapping, and strengthened connections between discovery and resources.
