    • Librarian Contributions in Launching a New Veterinary Medicine College

      Pfander, Jeanne; Cuillier, Cheryl; University of Arizona Libraries (2021-06-16)
      In this presentation we will describe the different roles we have played in working with faculty and administrators through the accreditation and launch of the new College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) at the University of Arizona. The liaison librarian played a key role, beginning with gathering information for the Library & Information Resources chapter (Standard 5) of the self-study report for the American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education accreditation team’s site visit. Once the college received the Letter of Reasonable Assurance in the accreditation process, the Vet Med liaison librarian and the Open Education Librarian began working in earnest with newly hired faculty. We did multiple onboarding sessions about library services and resources, including free-to-use course materials. CVM wanted to keep course material costs as low as possible, so we provided extensive support in identifying open educational resources and multi-user ebook titles. For Fall 2020, the library was able to provide free access to 38 of 41 required textbooks to CVM students. As the first cohort of students began their studies, we embedded a Library Resources Community in the CVM’s Elentra platform to share resources and to communicate directly with faculty and students.

    • Is Cancer Diagnosis Really A "Teachable Moment" for Smoking Cessation?

      Burriss, Jessica L.; University of Kentucky (University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2020-01-31)
      Most people assume cancer diagnosis functions as a “teachable moment,” that is, a major life event that triggers a significant increase in people’s motivation to adopt healthy behaviors (e.g., regular exercise, diet high in fresh fruits/veggies) and cease unhealthy behaviors (e.g., heavy alcohol use, medication noncompliance). Conceivably, the power of cancer diagnosis to serve as a “teachable moment” should extend to smoking behavior wherein cancer patients would be expected to quit smoking immediately upon diagnosis and remain abstinent for the balance of their lives. In reality, however, cancer survivors are estimated to smoke at a rate that is equal to or greater than the general population, with subgroups of cancer survivors smoking at much higher rates (40-50%). In my work, I aim to determine if, how, and for whom cancer diagnosis does indeed function as a “teachable moment” for smoking, with a central goal of more fully understanding the naturalistic process by which smoking cessation occurs after a new cancer diagnosis. In this talk, I will examine the interplay between cancer diagnosis and smoking behavior through several different, but complementary research methods, including intensive longitudinal data collection, concurrent mixed methods, randomized clinical trials, and implementation science. Ultimately, this line of research has the goal of promoting smoking cessation among the most vulnerable cancer survivors, including those who report little to no intention to quit and those who are faced with high levels of unmet social support needs.
    • 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.

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • Developing Data Management Services: What Support do Researchers Need?

      Kollen, Christine; University of Arizona (2016-10-18)
      The past several years has seen an increasing emphasis on providing access to the results of research, both publications and data. The majority of federal grant funding agencies require that researchers include a data management plan as part of their grant proposal. In response, the University of Arizona Libraries, in collaboration with the Office of Research and Discovery and the University Information Technology Services, has been providing data management services and resources to the campus for the past several years. In 2014, we conducted a research data management survey to find out how UA researchers manage their research data, determine the demand for existing services and identify new services that UA researchers need. In the fall of 2015, the Data Management and Data Publication and Curation (DMDC) Pilot was started to determine what specific services and tools, including training and support and the needed technology infrastructure, researchers need to effectively and efficiently manage and curate their research data. This presentation will present what data management services we currently are offering, discuss findings from the 2014 survey, and present initial results from the DMDC pilot.
    • Data Management and Curation: Services and Resources

      Kollen, Christine; Bell, Mary; University of Arizona (2016-10-18)
      Are you or the researchers you work with writing a grant proposal that requires a data management plan? Are you working on a research project and have questions about how to effectively and efficiently manage your research data? Are you interested in sharing your data with other researchers? We can help! For the past several years, the University of Arizona (UA) Libraries, in collaboration with the Office of Research and Discovery and the University Information Technology Services, has been providing data management services and resources to the campus. We are interested in tailoring our services and resources to what you need. We conducted a research data management survey in 2014 and are currently working on the Data Management and Data Curation and Publication (DMDC) pilot. This poster will describe what data management and curation services we are currently providing, and ask for your feedback on potential new data management services and resources.

    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
