Matthew Chase – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
This article explores the topic of intersectionality and its applications in teaching graduate students at a health sciences university. The case study examined the creation of an asynchronous information literacy module that centered intersectionality in the research process. Summative assessment data indicated that students were able to…

Sheena Campbell; Nancy Wallace – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
In this case study, two librarians reflect upon our efforts to design STEM-focused information literacy instruction for undergraduate students at an R1, land grant university. Designed around the principles of culturally relevant pedagogy, our curriculum integrates community-focused and regionally specific topics reflecting our students' lived…

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…

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…

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…

Kim, Miseon; Seo, Dugwon; Damas, M. Chantale – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2023
This study explores the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) community college faculty's perspectives on the Association of College and Research Libraries' (ACRL) "Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education" ("Framework"). Previous studies of the "Framework" implementation have…

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…

Yuening Zhang; Dylan Yu – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2023
Journal coverage is an important factor to consider when evaluating a database. In this study, we counted the number of articles (including early access articles) in newly-launched journals (2018-2022) from two major association publishers in engineering and computer science: the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the…

Daniela Solomon – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2023
This study reports on the publishing preferences of engineering faculty at a research institution. Faculty publications indexed in Scopus database over a ten-year period (2012-2021) were analyzed to identify publication types, publisher preference, and changes in publisher preferences observed over the period of this study. The findings expand the…

Sherriff, Graham; Rand, Dustin – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2022
Exploration of "prior art"--the state of a technology's development, as manifested in literature, documentation, and artifacts--has many benefits for engineering students. It expands their understanding of the design problem, reveals a range of possible solutions, and develops research skills important to professional practice. While…

Chen, Xiaoju; Dommermuth, Emily; Benner, Jessica G.; Kuglitsch, Rebecca; Lewis, Abbey B.; Marsteller, Matthew R.; Mika, Katherine; Young, Sarah – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2022
Research data management is essential for high-quality reproducible research, yet relatively little is known about how research data management is practiced by graduate students in Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE). Prior research suggests that faculty in CEE delegate research data management to graduate students, prompting this…

Xie, Shiyi; Savory, Eric – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2022
Prior research on information literacy instruction in engineering graduate programs rarely considers course instructor perspectives, and instead only uses student feedback to evaluate the efficacy of information literacy instruction. This study documents the authors' efforts to evolve the library curriculum to motivate student learning and meet…
