Justin de la Cruz; Genevieve Milliken; Nicole Contaxis; Miguel Juárez; Peace Ossom – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
Background: The recruitment of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) has been an ongoing effort for specialized libraries and library programs, especially as they try to fill technical roles while combatting internalized biases and candidates' potential self-deselection by not applying or otherwise removing themselves from the recruitment…

Kelly Giles; Alyssa Young – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
In academic libraries there has been growing interest in developing better ways to diversify collections, but STEM collections are sometimes overlooked. To better understand current practices and challenges, a survey was distributed to librarians with STEM collection responsibilities in the summer of 2021. Results from the survey indicated that…

Cay del Junco – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
In contrast to the traditional library instruction aim of finding and evaluating information, critical library pedagogies aim to teach students to analyze and challenge the power structures that determine what kind of information is deemed valuable. STEM librarians have been slower to take up these approaches than our colleagues with other…

Aditi Gupta; Sree Gayathri Talluri; Sajib Ghosh – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
Science communication has taken center stage in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) disciplines in the context of public outreach and citizen science. Developing practical communication skills is imperative for all scientists to be highly successful in their careers and more so for underrepresented and Black, Indigenous, and People…

Amani Magid; Ana Torres – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
Inclusion, diversity, belonging, and equity (IDBE) are tenets discussed and developed in many universities and university libraries. Although there were studies on IDBE in libraries in general, the authors of this study were particularly interested in what Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) librarians were facing or…

Janis Joyce Shearer – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
Academic and research libraries historically lack intentional engagement with Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities. This scoping review examines how academic and research library literature address social justice issues by engaging BIPOC with science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and/or medicine (STEMM) disciplines in…

Kari D. Weaver; Kate Mercer; Stephanie Mutch – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
This paper explores the connection between critical theory, information evaluation, and the instructional practice of critique for STEM students and librarian instructors. Using an emerging theory and instructional method, the authors examine how to more deeply include voices that have historically been excluded from STEM information critique. The…

Paige J. Dhyne; Alyssa Nance – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
Historical and modern scientific thought is dominated by the English language, colonized science, patriarchal norms, and Westernized "ways of knowing." By making materials that lie outside that narrative discoverable (e.g., non-Western science, Indigenous/Aboriginal knowledge, women in science, etc.) we can assert that science is a…

Diana E. Park; Stephanie K. Ramos – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
Science librarianship has barely scratched the surface when grappling with the injustice in our profession and the disciplines we support. Here we provide one example of how STEM librarians can work within the academy to resist systemic barriers and support students from marginalized communities. This paper will explore how librarians and…

Vieyra, Michelle L.; Weaver, Kari D. – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2023
Students often come to college with a limited understanding of how to ethically incorporate and cite source materials in their writing, and this is commonly cited as the leading reason for plagiarism. Studies have shown that students in STEM are more apt to plagiarize as compared to students in the humanities or social sciences, so they are an…

Thomson, Jenna – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2023
Integrated information literacy instruction throughout graduate school supports students as they transition into the role of researcher, but information literacy instruction aimed specifically at mathematics graduate students is not widely studied. This paper reports on the results of a survey of mathematics librarians, which found that a majority…

Bakker, Caitlin J.; Koos, Jessica A.; Hoogland, Margaret A.; Rand, Debra; Alpi, Kristine M. – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2023
COVID-19 challenged information exchange globally, including interlibrary loan (ILL). This project explored DOCLINE ILL borrowing data from 15 academic, hospital, and association health sciences libraries before and during the pandemic to understand gaps in ILL coverage. We reviewed aggregate filled and unfilled borrowing data from March to August…
