Abstract/Paper Title: Activities and Experiences of Academic Librarians Embedded in Online Courses

 

Author: Starr Hoffman

 

Abstract:  This benchmarking project used both quantitative and qualitative methods to explore similarities and differences among embedded librarian activities at six different U.S. institutions.  A series of interviews, document reviews, and surveys were used to gather information about librarian experiences working with online courses.  This topic becomes increasingly relevant as more distance education programs develop.  The study results reveal much about the development of online information literacy, collaborative relationships between librarians and faculty, and the changing role of the academic library in an online environment.

Abstract/Paper Title: The Educational Background of Academic Library Deans

 

Author: Starr Hoffman, Annie Downey

 

Abstract:

This study uses quantitative methods to study the degrees and majors of all 123 academic library deans at Association of Research Libraries (ARL) institutions.  Statistical analysis shows trends in the educational background of library deans at the premier academic libraries of North America.  Factors considered include presence or absence of a library science degree, presence or absence of a doctoral degree, length of time in the dean position, major subjects of study, and Carnegie classification of the institution at which the degrees were earned.  This study shows trends in hiring deans as well as commonalities among those interested in administrative library positions.

Abstract/Paper Title: The Longitudinal Relationship of Electronic Reference to the Development of Distance Education Programs

 

Author: Starr Hoffman

 

Abstract:  This study uses data from the U.S. National Center of Educational Statistics' IPEDS (Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System) and ALS (Academic Libraries Survey) over a ten-year period to connect the adoption of electronic reference services to the development of distance learning at those same institutions.  The statistical analysis shows trends in electronic reference services, both those that were created in response to specific distance education needs and those that developed simply as a technological modification of a traditional service.  Showing how these services developed in the past may provide insight for the development of future reference services.
