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…

Cataldo, Tara Tobin; Langer, Kailey; Buhler, Amy G.; Putnam, Samuel R.; Elrod, Rachael; Faniel, Ixchel M.; Connaway, Lynn Silipigni; Cyr, Christopher; Brannon, Brittany; Valenza, Joyce Kasman; Hood, Erin M.; Graff, Randy A. – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2019
This paper explores how students judge scientific news resources, as they might find through a Google search. The data were collected as part of an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) funded project. Students used a simulated search engine that ensured study participants found the same search results while seeking information for a…

Wiley, Christie A.; Kerby, Erin E. – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2018
The authors conducted six focus group semi-structured interviews consisting of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers within the College of Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) in order to understand their roles within research groups and their ability to manage research data. More specifically, participants…

Flaxbart, David – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2018
A citation analysis of chemistry PhD dissertations at the University of Texas at Austin yielded data on how often graduate students cite books in their bibliographies, and on the characteristics of the books cited, in terms of age and local ownership. The analysis examined samples of dissertations selected from five discrete years--1988, 2006,…

Zhang, Yuening – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2017
Although scholarship has addressed issues around serving international students in U.S. and Canadian libraries, reports on how Chinese graduate students use information in Chinese universities, especially for a particular discipline, are rare. In this study, the author interviewed 15 graduate students and researchers in a top-ranked chemistry…

Thielen, Joanna; Samuel, Sara M.; Carlson, Jake; Moldwin, Mark – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2017
Engineering researchers face increasing pressure to manage, share, and preserve their data, but these subjects are not typically a part of the curricula of engineering graduate programs. To address this situation, librarians at the University of Michigan, in partnership with the Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering Department, developed a…

Lantz, Catherine – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2016
The author interviewed 10 graduate teaching assistants leading lab sessions for first-year biology about how they introduce students to scientific literature. Qualitative data analysis of the interview transcripts revealed that both first-year students and graduate teaching assistants (many of whom are first-year teachers) struggle with…

Pouchard, Line; Bracke, Marianne Stowell – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2016
This paper describes a survey of data practices given to the Purdue College of Agriculture. Data practices are a concern for many researchers with new governmental funding mandates that require data management plans, and for the institution providing resources to comply with these mandates. The survey attempted to answer these questions: What are…
