    • Building a High School to College Connection via E-Publishing

      Orzech, Mary Jo; Myers, Kim; The College at Brockport (2019-05-22)
      This poster describes how Drake Memorial Library at the College at Brockport is partnering with the Friends & Foundation of the Rochester Public Library to encourage publication of winning high school essays and creative works in a college institutional repository. The Sokol High School Literary Awards Program is an annual creative writing contest for high school students in grades nine through twelve that has been sponsored by the Friends & Foundation of the Rochester Public Library since 1958. Prizes are awarded in the categories of poetry, prose and performance. The process of establishing this collaboration, developing a workflow, and obtaining permissions in preparation for publication are highlighted. Learning outcomes include sharing how this library outreach program can be replicated and enhanced by others. The goal is to increase visibility for open access student scholarship and enhance self-advocacy. The project introduces students to publishing an online work for their resume, college applications, etc. The partnership establishes a connection between the student authors and Brockport that can be the start of a college pathway for the future. We have partnered with the Sokol Award program for the past five years (since 2015), and have now published a total of 35 articles in this collection. The collection can be viewed globally and winning student works have been downloaded collectively over 1242 times in the past five years.

    • Developing Openness through Scholarly Communications in the Academic Library

      Orzech, Mary Jo; Myers, Kim; Abramovich, Samuel; SUNY University at Buffalo; The College at Brockport (2018-10-10)
      Librarian perspectives range from protective and permissions-oriented about resources to being very open about sharing information. As librarian roles evolve, their values, identities, and responsibilities are changing as well. This poster outlines some ways academic librarians are infusing aspects of openness into their work. Librarians are focusing on open activities such as promoting and planning in support of instruction, discovery, research, copyright, preservation, and more. The poster highlights the team effort needed to support openness efforts. Openness in moving to open data, open research, open publishing, open educational resources, open pedagogy, and open education in general, is a growing strategic goal and forward-thinking endeavor for many, but not all, librarians. The poster includes preliminary results of a survey of librarian perceptions and attitudes about use and support for open educational resources. Changes in perception leading to updated vision, mission, values, and action are highlighted. Best practices for developing a scholarly communications unit to support OER, an open institutional repository, and open scholarship are shared, along with informal assessment and future plans for supporting digital scholarship initiatives.
    • Increasing Diversity Representation in an Institutional Repository - Poster

      Orzech, Mary Jo; Myers, Kim; The College at Brockport (2018-10-06)
      Since its inception six years ago, our institutional repository has provided a number of opportunities to increase campus diversity awareness and representation. Examples begin with use as the registration/schedule platform for our annual Diversity Conference and as a repository for keynotes and other conference sessions. The repository also houses student journals such as 'Dissenting Voices', and we have built online exhibits related to artifacts from other parts of the world (e.g., New Guinea). A new e-book imprint has enabled us to publish books in Spanish and about other times and cultures, e.g., 'Gilgamesh'. The repository has allowed us to look back to local college history and acknowledge various diversity efforts over the years. The poster will include and invite additional creative ideas to foster and grow inclusion in digital scholarship efforts.

      Open Access publishing enables wide access to scholarly work, increases author citations, and strengthens the college’s institutional reputation. Brockport implemented an open access policy for journal articles in 2018. This session will discuss the policy, benefits and the process for depositing articles in the college repository, including a discussion of improvements for sustainability.
    • Planning a Digital Scholarship Center

      Orzech, Mary Jo; The College at Brockport (2019-01-23)
      This video outlines some of the background being used in planning a Digital Scholarship Center in Drake Memorial Library, at The College at Brockport. Initial steps are highlighted in developing buy-in from administration, and support from a variety of stakeholders. Building on existing strengths and creating ‘use cases’ can help others to share and own the vision. Starting a digital media lab is expected to provide a proof of concept. Integrated planning and consistent messaging are stressed and references are shared.
