Reply Brief for Petitioner in Kirtsaeng v Wiley

The case of Kirtsaeng v. Wiley & Sons, a case in which the key issue is the proper scope of the "first-sale doctrine" in copyright law. In this case, the first-sale doctrine is being challenged by a publisher who seeks to block re-sale in the US of the cheap editions of textbooks it authorized to be printed and sold abroad.

Scanning Maps: Quantifying Errors to Inform Future Image Capture Efforts

Poster presented at the LCDP Luminary Class, June 2012. In 2009, Stanford began an effort to scan its maps. Scanning large format items such as maps create a multitude of challenges. One of these challenges is to capture the map with specifications that meet all known repurposing needs. A prominent repurposing need is to ensure that the map can be consumed in a Geographic Information System (GIS). A team of Stanford University Library staff consisting of Patricia Carbajales, G. Salim Mohammed, Matt Pearson and Renzo Sanchez-Silva (noted here in alpha order) along with student assistants, conducted a detailed study of a Russian Topographic scanned map where details were visually inspected and checked for scanning errors.

SPEC Kit 331: Changing Role of Senior Administrators (October 2012)

SPEC Kit 331 focuses on the professional, administrative, and management positions that report directly to the library director (or in some ARL member libraries the position that serves as the representative to the association), positions that have not been examined by a SPEC survey since 1984. It explores the responsibilities of these positions, and the skills, qualifications, and competencies necessary for these administrators to successfully lead a transforming 21st century research library. It looks at whether and how position requirements have changed in the past five years, whether the number of direct reports has changed, whether these administrators have assumed new areas of organizational responsibility, and how they acquire the new skills to fulfill those responsibilities. It includes documents that compare organization charts and position descriptions from 2007 and 2012.

SPEC Kit 330: Library Contribution to Accreditation (September 2012)

SPEC Kit 330 explores the scope of accreditation standards,the data provided by research libraries to meet the requirements of accrediting bodies, and which library staff participate in preparing reports and site visits. The survey results may help libraries identify and understand what standards exist, and how their contributions lead to successful accreditation and reaccreditation for their parent institutions. Additionally, this survey sought to identify how deeply ARL libraries are involved in the accreditation process at the institutional level. As libraries strive to establish their impact and value in higher education, this measure is one way to gauge how institutional leaders perceive their libraries’ contributions. This SPEC Kit includes examples of programmatic and regional accrediting agency reports from respondents and descriptions of the accreditation process.

Home Videos, Herd Books, Math Journals, & Parliamentary Papers How Historians of Science and Technology Find Primary Sources: Preliminary Results from a Semi-Structured Interview Study

Poster presented at the LCDP Luminary Class, June 2012. The decisions that academic libraries and special collections make today, in a context of rapid technologicaland other change, will shape the research of historians of the future. Certain types of primary sources of special interest to historians of science and technology—including scientific texts, journal literature, archival documents of research institutions, and manuscript papers of scientists and engineers—are often stewarded by academic libraries, with particular responsibility assumed by science- and technology-focused institutions. Recent trends in collection development and management will have major implications for tomorrow's scholars. What does it mean for both current and future historians of science and technology that more and more sources are full-text searchable online, and that more and more print sources are stored off-site? Will scholars be affected by libraries licensing rather than owning digital content? Will today's born-digital counterparts to yesterday's paper publications, documents, and images be accessible? Are research libraries and special collections currently capturing and preserving the same kinds of primary sources that historians of science and technology have relied on, and are there other kinds of sources we should be preserving?

The ARL Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce (IRDW): Participant Perceptions of Program Impact

Poster presented at the LCDP Luminary Class, June 2012. The Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce has succeeded in recruiting librarians from racial and ethnic minority groups to careers in academic and research libraries, with over 75% of program participants who currently hold library positions working in these types of libraries. Participants rate the program highly, with 86% stating that the program was very important/important in advancing their career. Three of the six program components of IRDW scored highly on the very favorable/favorable scale: participants valued the stipend funding, the leadership institute, and the visit to the Purdue University Libraries. The mentorship program was the lowest rated of the program components, and participants perceived this component to need improvement.

How Do Music Faculty Look For Library Materials?

Poster presented at the LCDP Luminary Class, June 2012. How do university faculty members in the music department use the library's online catalog (OPAC) to find music materials for themselves or for their students? Interviews, done in February 2012, of four performance faculty members from the University of Maryland School of Music reveal the wide range of materials they search for, and the limitations of the system in being able to find like items in different formats. Faculty members' assumptions of the capabilities of a search provide insight into possibilities for how OPACs can be re-designed or re-configured for more accurate hits and better discovery of similar items.
