We will have three different talks from three of our Libraries and Press faculty members:

10:00 AM A Textbook Lending Library at Oregon State University

Lori Hilterbrand, Kelly McElroy, Nicole Hindes and Dan Moore will talk about the Textbook Lending Library at OSU. Despite the clear negative impact of high textbook costs on students, limits—including space, funding, and policies—prevent many academic libraries from fully supporting textbook collections. Partnering with other campus units on textbook lending requires creative thinking but can provide students access to other services in addition to the books they need for class. This talk describes a partnership between an academic library and a student services unit to provide support for a noncustodial textbook lending program.

10:30 AM Oregon State University Graduate Students’ Scholarly Landscape and Institutional Repository Needs

Hui Zhang and Michaela Willi Hooper will describe the work they did with a Robert Lundeen Library Faculty Development Award. The study seeks to address the following questions: What are the research practices and needs of graduate students? How can new library services and features reduce the gap between graduate student needs and current IR services and features? Semi-structured qualitative interviews were conducted with eight graduate students from different disciplines. The results were analyzed using the constant comparative method, and four themes emerged: (1) varied perspectives on data sharing, (2) confusion over intellectual property inhibits open sharing, (3) incentivizing institutional repositories through researcher profiles and (optional) social features, and (4) the need for centralized training on and access to research productivity tools. Student perspectives on these themes are presented in the results section, and some potential applications for this research are outlined in the discussion.

11:00 AM Remediation Data Management Plans. A tool for recovering research data from messy, messy projects.

Clara Llebot will talk about how Data Management Plans, a document used to manage data in the planning stages of a project (preventive Data Management Plans), can also be used to manage data at the intermediate stages of a project, when data has already been collected and is still being analyzed (remedial Data Management Plan). The talk will discuss the differences and commonalities in structure between preventive Data Management Plans and remedial Data Management Plans and describe the additional considerations that are needed when writing remedial Data Management Plans: goals and audience of the document, data inventory, and implementation plan. We will illustrate the talk with examples of remedial Data Management Plan that is being developed by the data management specialist at the  Library for the Watershed Research Cooperative.

We hope to see you there!
