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.

The Rapid Growth of Electronic Resources in East Asian Library Collections

Poster presented at the LCDP Luminary Class, June 2012. Like many other academic libraries, East Asian libraries face tough financial decisions on how they allocate their resources in this time of financial restraints, while fulfilling the library's ultimate mission of supporting teaching and researching. This study was conducted in light of escalating cost of electronic resources in East Asian languages. By analyzing 5-year (2007–2011) statistical data obtained from 32 East Asian libraries in North America, this study explores what portion of a library's total materials expenditures are dedicated to eresources and how fast its e-resources expenditures have been growing over the past five years.

If You Were in Charge What Would You Do? Survey of Students at Penn State Worthington Scranton Library

Poster presented at the LCDP Luminary Class, June 2012. Students living off-campus are the majority of today's college student population. If a library is to be a success, librarians must understand the needs of this population base. This study attempts to determine if students at the all commuter campus of Penn State Worthington Scranton are satisfied with services and facilities of the library and to determine if their needs are being addressed. Results from the survey are analyzed to develop a profile of the needs of these particular students.

Cataloging in Transformation: New Trends and Future Outlook

Poster presented at the LCDP Luminary Class, June 2012. With rapidly changing technology, more and more libraries are building digital collections and shifting focus to online discovery environment. More and more resources are published in electronic format, which leaves libraries with less and less physical material to catalog and process. Cataloging practice is experiencing big changes as we respond to the new trends of digitization, multiple metadata standards, outsourcing, batch processing, next-generation catalogs, and new standards and concepts for information organization. This research intends to explore new trends and future outlooks and plans in the cataloging practice of libraries of all kinds.
