JSTOR : a history by Roger C Schonfeld( )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 1,976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: Ten years ago, most scholars and students relied on bulky card catalogs, printed bibliographic indices, and hardcopy books and journals. Today, much content is available electronically or online. This book examines the history of one of the first, and most successful, digital resources for scholarly communication, JSTOR. Beginning as a grant-funded project of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation at the University of Michigan, JSTOR has grown to become a major archive of the backfiles of academic journals, and its own nonprofit organization. Roger Schonfeld begins this history by looking at JSTOR's original mission of saving storage space and thereby storage costs, a mission that expanded immediately to improving access to the literature. What role did the University play? Could JSTOR have been built without the active involvement of a foundation? Why was it seen as necessary to "spin off" the project? This case study proceeds as an organizational history of the birth and maturation of this nonprofit, which had to emerge from the original university partnership to carve its own identity. How did the grant project evolve into a successful marketplace enterprise? How was JSTOR able to serve its twofold mission of archiving its journals while also providing access to them? What has accounted for its growth? Finally, Schonfeld considers implications of the economic and organizational aspects of archiving as well as the system-wide savings that JSTOR ensures by broadly distributing costs
The game of life college sports and educational values : with a new preface by the authors by James Lawrence Shulman( )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The President of Williams College faces a firestorm for not allowing the women's lacrosse team to postpone exams to attend the playoffs. The University of Michigan loses 2.8 million on athletics despite averaging 110,000 fans at each home football game. Schools across the country struggle with the tradeoffs involved with recruiting athletes and updating facilities for dozens of varsity sports. Does increasing intensification of college sports support or detract from higher education's core mission? James Shulman and William Bowen introduce facts into a terrain overrun by emotions and
The nonsubscription side of periodicals : changes in library operations and costs between print and electronic formats( Book )

14 editions published in 2004 in English and Swedish and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many academic and research libraries are in the midst of what may ultimately be a major transition for various parts of their collections-- a shift from print to electronic format. Libraries that had long subscribed only to print versions of journals are, in increasing numbers, licensing electronic versions to replace the print. What effects will this transition have on library operations and on nonsubscription expenditures? To answer this question, the authors collected new data on staff activities and costs from 11 U.S. academic libraries. They then performed a life-cycle analysis to study the longer-term cost implications of the transition."--Abstract from CLIR web site
The idea of order : transforming research collections for 21st century scholarship by Charles Henry( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document explores the transition from an analog to a digital environment for knowledge access, preservation, and reconstitution, and the implications of this transition for managing research collections. The volume comprises three reports. The first, "Can a New Research Library be All-Digital?" By Lisa Spiro and Geneva Henry, explores the degree to which a new research library can eschew print. The second, "On the Cost of Keeping a Book," by Paul Courant and Matthew "Buzzy" Nielsen, argues that from the perspective of long-term storage, digital surrogates offer a considerable cost savings over print-based libraries. The final report, "Ghostlier Demarcations," examines how well large text databases being created by Google Books and other mass-digitization efforts meet the needs of scholars, and the larger implications of these projects for research, teaching, and publishing. The reports are introduced by Charles Henry; the volume includes a conclusion by Roger Schonfeld and an epilogue by Charles Henry. (Individual articles contain tables, figures, and footnotes.)
University Futures, Library Futures: Aligning Library Strategies with Institutional Directions by Constance Malpas( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

OCLC Research and Ithaka S+R are examining the impact of increased institutional differentiation in universities on the organization of academic libraries and the services they provide. For decades, models of excellence in academic library service have been shaped by a collections-centric paradigm in which the size of local print inventory is considered a key indicator of quality. OCLC Research and Ithaka are joining forces to develop a new framework for understanding the fit between emerging library service paradigms and university types
Ithaka S+R Library Survey 2010 : Insights From U.S. Academic Library Directors by Matthew P Long( )

The Ithaka S+R Library Survey 2010 was an attitudinal survey of library directors at the libraries of institutions that grant degrees at the bachelor's level or higher. The survey focused on themes such as the future of the academic library, strategies library administrators are pursuing for their libraries, the management of print journal collections, the development of new digital collections, services provided to library patrons, the creation of new services to meet changing user needs, and practices for digital preservation. It also measured the attitudes of the library community towards e-books, open access, purchasing decisions, and collections management
The game of life : college sports and educational values by James Lawrence Shulman( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shulman and Bowen celebrate the benefits of collegiate sports, while identifying the subtle ways in which athletic intensification can pull even prestigious institutions from their missions. By examining how athletes and other graduates view the game of life - and how colleges play a role in shaping society's view of what its rules should be - Shulman and Bowen go far beyond sports. They tell us about higher education today: the ways in which colleges set policies, reinforce or neglect their core mission, and send signals about what matters."--Jacket
Ithaka s+r faculty survey 2009 key strategic insights for libraries, publishers, and societies( )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Similar to the 2006 study, "Ithaka 2006 Survey of US Higher Education Faculty Attitudes and Behaviors" (ICPSR 22700), this survey examined faculty attitudes and behaviors on key issues ranging from the library as an information gateway and the need for preservation of scholarly material, to faculty engagement with institutional disciplinary repositories and thoughts about open access. Respondents were asked to identify the primary resource they used for locating information for their research, provide their opinion on the transition of hardcopy library collections to electronic versions, as well as accessing or disseminating scholarly content, and gauge their dependence on college or university libraries in conducting research. In addition, respondents were asked how important various library resources and library and scholarly societies were to their research or teaching, and how important they expect library resources will be in five years. Respondents were queried about their use of electronic search engines, and how often certain methods were used to find information in academic journals. In addition, the survey gathered respondent information on whether they deposited various types of electronic materials or used content deposited by others, the type of repository to which they deposited content, and the importance of long-term electronic data preservation. Lastly, respondents were asked whether they owned an electronic reading device, whether audio or video recordings of their courses were available online, and to rate the importance certain characteristics of academic journals had on influencing their decision of whether or not to publish an article in that journal. Demographic and other background information includes age, gender, job title, primary academic field, number of years in current position and field, and view of self as a researcher or teacher
