Print culture becomes digital culture

  1. 1. Print Culture becomes Digital Culture THE PRINT TO DIGITAL MIGRATION….. Kathleen Daniels, Librarian kathleen.daniels@minneapolis.edu Jennifer Sippel, Librarian jennifer.sippel@minneapolis.edu
  2. 2. Does format matter?  Print  Digital culture  The MCTC Library collection is shifting from being a primarily print collection to an increasingly digital collection.  Some prime examples:  Opposing Viewpoints series essays are available in Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center database  Selected subject encyclopedia titles are available in Gale Virtual Reference Library database
  3. 3. Why are we ordering so many online resources?  Technology’s impact on information production  Convenience  Student interest & expectation
  4. 4. Is print going away? No…  Not everything in our collection is going digital or even available in digital format.  Examples:  Alternative Press titles  Some resources do not translate well in digital format  $$$. Unless prices drop, we simply will not be able to afford digital versions of certain resources.  Print experience is beneficial for some students/assignments
  5. 5. Question/Discussion 1  Scenario: A student locates books & articles online for one of your assignments.  Discussion: Would this meet the learning objectives of the assignment? Why or why not?
  6. 6. Terminology limitations  Print vs. web  Not a useful dichotomy, unless your learning objective(s) requires print format  Useful phrases that focus on learning goals and good quality content – not the ―packaging‖…  ―Library resources‖  ―Resources found through MCTC Library’s website‖  ―Library subscription resources‖  ―Library reference resources‖
  7. 7. Good ―destinations‖ for beginning researchers For these resource types… try this online source *… Essays, argumentative writing, topic overviews Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center database Topic overviews, Gale Virtual Reference Library database [these e-books are included in biographies, introductions to concepts from within Library catalog] subject discipline ABC/CLIO/Greenwood e-book database [these e-books are included in Library catalog)] CQ Researcher or Issues & Controversies databases Magazine articles MasterFILE Premier database AltPress Watch database Newspaper articles ProQuest Newsstand Complete database LexisNexis Academic database Books Ebrary database [e-book database currently on a 1 year trial in 2010] NetLibrary database [these e-books are included in Library catalog] *all subscription databases listed are accessible through MCTC Library’s website: www.minneapolis.edu/library
  8. 8. Question/Discussion 2  Scenario: You assign students to locate ―Library resources.‖  Discussion: How do you know whether your students have used library resources to find their information?
  9. 9. Help from the MCTC Library  ―Train-the-trainer‖ philosophy  We are always willing to meet with you individually, in small groups, or as a department, about courses, assignments, and library resources  INFS 1000: Information Literacy & Research Skills  Required for Liberal Arts degree & some programs
