    Bind Us Together: Collections of Congregational Song Made Known
    (The Ohio State University Libraries, 2014-02-10) Schneider, Tina
    Professorial Lecture of Tina Schneider, Director, Lima Campus Library, The Ohio State University. The lecture covers what makes hymns and hymnals different from other types of bibliographic items, and how the database works to help people find hymns and hymnals. The variety of pairs of texts and tunes, in addition to poetic liberties taken with hymn texts over the years, complicates the process of finding hymns. However, their study can trace theological, musical, and social trends among various denominations and religions. With the development of the Dictionary of North American Hymnology, and its pairing with, hymn texts and tunes are now more easily found for both the scholar and the practicing musician.

    Is Library User Privacy still Paramount in the 2.0 Era?
    (The Ohio State University Libraries, 2013-10-10) Zimmer, Michael
    Traditionally, the context of the library brings with it specific norms of information flow regarding library patron activity, including a longstanding professional commitment to user privacy. In the library, a patron's intellectual activities are protected by decades of established norms and practices intended to preserve patron privacy and confidentiality. However, these norms are being increasingly challenged as libraries embrace Web 2.0 and "big data" paradigms and platforms to better serve users. These new so-called "Library 2.0" services promise to improve the delivery of library services and enhance patron activities, yet require the tracking, collecting, retaining, and sharing of large amounts of data about patron activities. Further, given the dominance of social media – where individuals increasingly share personal information on platforms with porous and shifting boundaries – librarians and other information professions are confronted with possible shifts in the social norms about privacy. Launching such Library 2.0 features, however, poses a unique dilemma in the realm of information ethics, particularly in relation to protecting patron privacy. Library 2.0 threatens to disrupt these ethical norms, since the Web 2.0 world introduces competing norms that lean toward the open flow and sharing of personal information. Despite these concerns, many librarians recognize the need to pursue Library 2.0 initiatives as the best way to serve the changing needs of their patrons and to ensure the library’s continued role in providing professionally guided access to knowledge. In a relatively short amount of time, Library 2.0 has taken hold in hundreds of libraries, and the question before us is not whether libraries will move towards Library 2.0 services, but how they will do it, and, from an ethical perspective, whether they can maintain their long-standing concerns for patron privacy in the process. This talk provides an ethical examination of the emergence of new Library 2.0 tools and technologies in relation to existing norms of information flow within the library context.

    Creating the Future through Understanding and Engaging Difference
    (The Ohio State University Libraries, 2011-04-28) Deiss, Kathryn
    Embracing diversity is seen as an unequivocal good. Making diversity one of the keystones of library strategy, however, is not only good – it is a source of power. This presentation describes research that points to diverse workforces having competitive, creative, and strategic advantage and provide stimulus for conversation at The Ohio State University Libraries about what it means to have diversity as part of strategic direction.
