Academic Authorship and Personal Name Headings in Library of Congress Authorities : A case study at a small liberal arts college Poster session McCormick Place Convention Center
Hall A, Exhibit Floor
Description :

As a new participant in the NACO-MN Funnel Project, Carleton wants to implement the new practice for the academic community of our campus, besides serving larger cataloging communities. The Carleton College faculty is very active in research, creating and editing numerous books and book chapters annually. We are interested to learn whether our campus authors have appropriate name authority records in the Library of Congress Authorities and, if not, how many were completely lacking any personal name records. Changes resulting from the implementation of RDA have allowed for much richer personal name authorities providing the opportunity to include such information as the author's affiliation, field of activity, professional occupation, and many other attributes. Initially, we looked at the faculty that had published only during the 2011/12 academic year. We then will continue on, stepping backwards year by year, looking at our faculty authors and their personal name authorities. As we do so, we will involve the faculty members in the creation of their headings. This provides us an opportunity to learn about our faculty, and it will give the faculty new insight into the work of the library. In most cases, this may be the first time, a faculty member learns about his/her authority heading and its importance.

Access on a Budget: Striking a Healthly Balance Between Database Subscriptions and Interlibrary Loan Services Poster session McCormick Place Convention Center
Hall A, Exhibit Floor
Description :

It was once stated that libraries could not afford to buy every book published. The same case can be made for online journals. Interlibrary Loan is not a replacement for journal subscriptions, but is it necessary to have subscriptions to every database when the use does not merit the cost? Libraries must come to the realization that they cannot subscribe to every full-text database and must make decisions on what should be included in the collection and what should be left to interlibrary loan to fulfill. The poster will highlight the value of interlibrary loan in relation to the rising cost of database subscriptions and the desire to provide rapid access to patrons. The poster will present statistics data taken from current database costs compared to operating costs of Interlibrary Loan department from the University of Southern Mississippi.
