• Open Data Challenges in Interdisciplinary Research

      Barton, Jennifer K.; University of Arizona (2012-10-23)
      This presentation was given at the 2012 Open Access Week program, “The Open Data Revolution: Challenges and Innovations” on October 23, 2012. Open Access Week is a world-wide event where academic institutions explore Open Access – the ideal of free, full-text, immediate, online access to peer-reviewed scholarship and research results so new ideas and information can be obtained rapidly and freely by everyone. Many funding agencies, such as the National Science Foundation, and journal publishers, such as Nature, require researchers to share data produced during the course of their research. When researchers share their data, other researchers can reuse it to answer new questions, opening up new interpretations and discoveries. Sharing data may also lead to sharing research processes, workflows and tools and may make research articles and papers more useful and citable by others.

    • Patron-Driven Acquisitions: Bridging the Boundaries of Need and Access to Information Resources

      See, Andrew; University of Arizona (2013-06)
      As the University of Arizona Libraries employ a 21st century user-centered approach to information resource management, we have adopted a Patron-Driven Acquisitions program. Fundamentally, the program is based on the model of users as the drivers of library acquisitions. By embedding order records in the library catalog and by identifying user needs through interlibrary loan requests, the library is able to acquire targeted information resources that more efficiently meet the research needs of our users. This service significantly enhances the user experience and allows the UA Libraries to see greater use of our resources.
    • A Pedagogy of Inquiry

      Pagowsky, Nicole; University of Arizona (2015-11)
      Library instruction continues to evolve. Regardless of the myriad and conflicting opinions academic librarians have about the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy, the debates and the document itself have engendered greater discourse surrounding how and why librarians teach. The Framework provides an additional push toward designing instruction with big ideas rather than a skills-based curriculum. However, we still must contend with constraints imposed upon us by higher education taking on business models and enforcing a skills agenda. To enact the pedagogy of the Framework in contrast to changes in higher education presents a challenge. We should consider ways in which the Framework can help us push back against these neoliberal agendas in our pedagogy and reinvent our roles as librarian educators.
    • Personalized Library Instruction for 500 of Your Favorite Students: Utilizing Technology in Large Lecture Halls

      Dewland, Jason; Cuillier, Cheryl; DeFrain, Erica; University of Arizona; University of Vermont (2013-06)
      In the spring semester of 2013, the University of Arizona Libraries partnered with the Eller College of Management to provide instruction to all first-semester Eller students. An online toolkit of library resources was created in Blackboard. The first day of the semester, two groups of 250 students each assembled into a lecture hall and received an overview of the Eller first-year experience, which included a 50-minute library instruction session. The challenge was how to provide an environment in which the students could have hands-on instruction while receiving personalized assistance and also to ensure that the students retained the concepts learned. The librarians utilized online quizzes to guide the in-class instruction and then required a four-part post-class tutorial, using interactive guide-on-the-side technology to strengthen retention and follow-up quizzes to test retention. This poster’s charts, screen shots, and photos will examine the process, the technology utilized, and results from the quizzes and website analytics.

    • Reproducibility, Open Data, Multiplication of Data Impact

      Koch, Steve; University of New Mexico (2011-10-25)
      This presentation was given at the 2011 Open Access Week program, “The Future of Data: Open Access and Reproducibility” on October 25, 2011. Open Access Week is a world-wide event where academic institutions explore Open Access – the ideal of free, full-text, immediate, online access to peer-reviewed scholarship and research results so new ideas and information can be obtained rapidly and freely by everyone. Open Data is the idea that data should be freely available to anyone to use and reuse without access restrictions, licenses, copyright, patents and charges for use. For many scientists, integrating data is becoming a necessity.
    • Retractions, Post-Publication Peer Review and Fraud: Scientific Publishing's Wild West

      Oransky, Ivan; Retraction Watch (University of Arizona Library (Tucson, AZ), 2016-10-27)
      Ivan Oransky and Adam Marcus founded Retraction Watch in 2010. Unbeknownst to them, retractions had grown ten-fold in the previous decade. Oransky will discuss the reasons for that increase, whether fraud is on the rise, the growth of post-publication peer review, and other trends he and Marcus have seen as they've built a site that is now viewed by 150,000 people per month, and funded by philanthropies including the MacArthur and Arnold Foundations.
    • Rigor and Transparency i.e., How to prevent the zombie paper Apocalypse

      Bandrowski, Anita; University of California, San Diego (University of Arizona Library (Tucson, AZ), 2016-10-27)
      The NIH is now requiring the authentication of Key Biological Resources to be specified in a scored portion of most grant applications, but what does it mean to authenticate? We will discuss what Key Biological Resources are, the ongoing efforts to understand how to authenticate them and of course the resources available, including examples. The journal response to authentication will also be pointed to and practical steps that every researcher can take today to improve reporting of research in scientific publication.
    • Shame in the Therapy Hour: Recognizing, Managing, and Transforming Our Darkest Emotion

      Tangney, June; George Mason University (University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2016-03-26)
      Although clinicians often use the terms “shame” and “guilt” interchangeably, ample research indicates that these are distinct emotions with very different implications for motivation and behavior (Tangney, et al., 2007). This workshop summarizes research on the phenomenology of shame and guilt (Wicker, et al., 1983; Tangney, et al., 1996), as well as clinically relevant empirical work demonstrating a link between shame and denial, defensiveness, and aggression (e.g., Stuewig, et al., 2010). Although ubiquitous in clinical settings, shame is a silent emotion. Clients rarely announce that they feel shame. Participants will become familiar with empirically validated verbal and non-verbal markers of shame (Keltner, 1995). Strategies for responding to, managing, and transforming or resolving client shame will be discussed, drawing on a handful of explicitly shame-focused therapies with empirical support (Gilbert, 2014; Rizvi & Linehan, 2005), augmented by observations of “master clinicians” presented in a recent edited volume on Shame in the Therapy Hour (Dearing & Tangney, 2011). The workshop will close with a consideration of therapists’ shame, as well as shame in supervisor-supervisee relationships.
    • Sharing Specifications or Repeatability in Computer Systems Research

      Collberg, Christian S; Proebsting, Todd A.; University of Arizona (University of Arizona Library (Tucson, AZ), 2016-10-27)
      We describe a study into the extent to which Computer Systems researchers share their code and data. Starting with 601 papers from ACM conferences and journals, we examine the papers whose results were backed by code to see for what fraction of these we would be able to obtain and build the code. Based on the results of this study, we propose a novel sharing specification scheme that requires researchers to specify the level of sharing that reviewers and readers can assume from a paper.
    • Social Determinants of Latina/o Sleep Health: Insights and Implications for Behavioral Interventions

      Alcántara, Carmela; Columbia University (University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2019-01-25)
      Sleep is increasingly recognized as an important behavioral and public health issue for all in the United States (US). Yet, Latina/o sleep health is understudied despite the fact that Latina/os compose 16.3% of the US population, and that sleep problems are prevalent among Latina/os. Additionally, racial/ethnic and language-based disparities in access to safe and effective behavioral health interventions for prevalent sleep-wake disorders persist. In this talk, I will draw from frameworks in psychology, public health, social work, and medicine to discuss recent evidence from my program of research on the relative association of sociocultural stressors and general psychosocial stress with various dimensions of subjectively- and objectively-measured sleep among Latina/os, and discuss implications for behavioral sleep intervention science. Second, I will describe formative work behind an ongoing mixed-methods Hybrid effectiveness-implementation randomized controlled trial that tests a culturally adapted self-guided digital version of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia versus usual care in Spanish-speaking Latina/o primary care patients. Finally, I will conclude by discussing future mechanistic and ecological research on the bi-directional relationships between sleep, stress, and self-regulatory processes among Latina/os.
    • Spatial Data Explorer: Providing Discovery and Access to Geospatial Data at the University of Arizona

      Kollen, Christine; University of Arizona (2016-06-25)
      The University of Arizona (UA) Libraries has been providing GIS services and access to geospatial data since the 1990's, first by providing access to US Federal Depository Program geospatial data on CD-ROMs and DVDs, later through the Arizona Electronic Atlas and more recently the UA Institutional Repository (UAiR) and the UA Campus Repository. Focus groups with faculty and staff confirmed our view that neither the UAiR nor the Campus Repository meet the needs of the UA's GIS community. To address their needs, the UA Libraries investigated various solutions for developing a geospatial data portal that would facilitate discovery, access, sharing, and retrieval of distributed geospatial data resources and consolidate several repositories at the University into one accessible and modern interface. An inventory was completed, interviews were conducted with relevant campus stakeholders and geospatial data portal managers at various academic libraries, and various options were investigated. Based on several factors, the UA decided to implement Open Geoportal (http://www.opengeoportal.org), a collaboratively developed, open source, federated web application for discovering, previewing, and retrieving geospatial data from multiple repositories. The UA Libraries released the resulting geospatial data portal, Spatial Data Explorer (SDE), in the fall 2015. In anticipation of the release, a survey was conducted in spring 2015 of faculty, staff, and students to gauge interest in contributing data to the SDE. The poster will include why we decided to implement Open Geoportal, screen shots showing the SDE interface and functionality, results of the survey and follow-up interviews with potential contributors, and use statistics.

    • Stewarding the Scholarly Record @ The University of Arizona

      Oxnam, Maliaca; Chapman, Kimberly; Frumkin, Jeremy; University of Arizona Libraries (2015-04-13)
      The University of Arizona (UA) Libraries has an evolving strategy to steward the scholarly record of the institution. As a key component of this strategy the Libraries have a leadership role in implementing UA Vitae, a mandated online faculty activity reporting system with initial focus on supporting the faculty evaluation process. In partnership with the Office of the Provost and Campus Computing, the Libraries contribute expertise in support of this campus initiative. Leveraging the data from this effort to capture a more holistic view of the scholarly record provides opportunities for the Libraries to partner on approaches to utilizing, stewarding, and exposing the scholarly record. This presentation will describe the University and the Library’s evolving strategies in regard to defining and stewarding the scholarly record, our experiences with the build-out of the faculty activity reporting system, and next steps in bringing together information and systems that are transforming our University.
