Hartman, Patricia; Newhouse, Renae; Perry, Valerie – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2014
The train-the-trainer model has great potential for expanding information literacy programs without placing undue burden on already overextended librarians; it is surprisingly underused in academic libraries. At the University of Kentucky, we employed this model to create a new information literacy program in an introductory biology lab. We…

Cusker, Jeremy; Rauh, Anne E. – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2014
Discussions of the potential of open access publishing frequently must contend with the skepticism of research authors regarding the need to pay author fees (also known as publication fees). With that in mind, the authors undertook a survey of faculty, postdocs, and graduate students in physical science, mathematics, and engineering fields at two…
