Evaluation and Adaptation: How Change Allowed Us to Thrive
Speaker: Elizabeth Speer

The last couple of years brought about a drastic change in how libraries provided services to their patrons. UNT Health Science Center took what could have been a crippling time and turned it into an opportunity for evaluation and adaptation of library policies and procedures. From changing ILS to retirements to lockdown procedures this presentation will present how library processes and technology were evaluated and adapted to meet our goals and patron needs while preserving the sanity of library staff.

Giving CRediT Taxonomy its Due
Speaker: Shelley Barba, Hannah Chapman Tripp, Natalia Kapacinskas, David Lowe, Santi Thompson

A subgroup of the TDL-sponsored Research Integrity Working Group has been meeting monthly to discuss curriculum development and planning for a patron-focused workshop themed around authority issues in research and publishing with a focus on the CRediT taxonomy. Join us as we discuss the path of our work and what we’ve learned thus far about the use, implementation, and scholarly controversy of the CRediT taxonomy, which defines 14 roles related to creating and authoring research-related works. As an academic publishing topic, the CRediT Taxonomy has implications for scholarly communication. As a tactic for managing power relationships (such as between a graduate student and tenured faculty member), it has implications for equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives. As a bibliographic feature, it has implications for metadata and indexing specialists. As a crediting mechanism, it has implications stretching from evaluative processes to the integrity of academic research. We invite you to help us as we think through effective ways to introduce this seldom discussed topic with our faculty and students.
