    What else can we have them do? Growing student employees with responsibility
    ( 2019-11-11) DeMartini, Becky ; Andaluz, Angela
    We at the BYU-Hawaii Library have been actively looking for ways to help our students employees gain meaningful work experience. In the Information Services Department, we have had great success in trusting students with more responsibility and opportunities for employee development. Some examples of responsibilities delegated to students include interviewing and making hiring recommendations, scheduling desk coverage, developing communications and PR, running employee meetings and taking minutes, taking the lead on specific projects, and more. We will leave time at the end for discussion and to hear any other ideas that you all might have!

    Why Open Access? Demonstrating that Open Access articles in ScholarSpace get more citations and more diverse citations than paywalled articles
    ( 2019-11-11) Brandes, Patricia ; Young, Jonathan
    Persuading students and faculty to take the effort to make their work Open Access can be challenging. One way to help convince them is to show that not only is Open Access better for their readers, but it’s also better for them directly. Our bibliometric study showed that Open Access articles in institutional repositories like UH Manoa’s ScholarSpace receive about 30% more citations than pay articles in the same journal and their citations are about 19% more interdisciplinary. We discuss how this result can help libraries market and sustain their services, and the implications for Open Access.

    ʻOlelo Hawaiʻi and Uchinaaguchi: Language Preservation and Cultural Revitalization in Hawaiʻi and Okinawa
    ( 2019-11-10) Mattos, Jodie ; Iwabuchi, Sachiko
    The United Nations declared 2019 The Year of Indigenous Languages. Languages around the world continue to disappear at an alarming rate. Our presentation will discuss two specific languages, shimakutuba and ÿölelo Hawaiÿi (Hawaiian language), and how the University of Hawaiÿi at Mänoa Library supports language revitalization. Hawaiÿi and Okinawa are two islands with some similarities. Both places are formerly independent kingdoms, with specific cultural differences from its colonial overseers (the United States and Japan, respectively). Both are also heavily militarized, touristic places. Hawaÿi has seen a revitalization of the ÿölelo Hawaiÿi (Hawaiian language) since the 1970s, with the Hawaiian renaissance and the establishment of Hawaiian immersion schools. Students in Hawaiÿi can now be educated in ÿölelo Hawaiÿi from preschool to graduate school and ÿölelo Hawaiÿi is one of two official languages of the State of Hawaiÿi (the other English). There are many long existing connections between Okinawa and Hawaiÿi. One surprising one is that Okinawans are looking to Hawaiÿi to learn about Hawaiian language revitalization. Language is tied to culture and many Uchinanchu (Okinawan people) are wanting to preserve Okinawan languages. What can Okinawa learn from Hawaiÿi about language revitalization? Okinawan languages, shimakutuba, is examined in the light of Hawaiian language revitalization and some observations on how the Asia Collection supports Okinawan language revitalization will be shared. The audience will learn how Hawaiian language revitalization has affected Okinawa’s shimakutuba movement and the similarities and differences between the two regions.

    A Makeover Inside and Out: Reinventing Ourselves After the Big Move
    ( 2019-11-10) Torres, Elizabeth ; Brown, Laila ; Calhoun, Ramon ; Lough, Pam
    Change is inevitable. The recent relocation of the main downtown campus library at Hawai‘i Pacific University has provided librarians with the unique opportunity to reimagine allocated spaces, services, and staff workflow. One of the main challenges the library faced is that the library’s new space is considerably smaller than the previous one, which meant the collection had to be substantially reduced. This presentation will showcase how a basic set of guiding principles has been critical to ensuring the success of the transformation. These principles sought to leverage user-centric design practices for collection development, reference, instruction, and circulation interfaces. The session will highlight how other libraries can learn from our experience as they look to reinvent and adapt to shifting circumstances.

    Librarians Need to Take-up the Writing Revolution
    ( 2019-11-11) Lenz, Cory
    This presentation discusses why librarians are uniquely qualified to lead the writing-across-the-curriculum charge, which has been largely ignored by our schools, and cultivate better writing among our students. The first section charts the assessment of student writing since the 1980’s and shows how student writing has not improved and, in fact, along with critical reading and information literacy skills, has actually declined. The second section explains why librarians are perfectly suited to lead a writing revolution by including writing in their instruction, alongside the other interdependent skills of information literacy, research, and critical reading. The final section of the presentation, with help from audience members, shares ways writing can be included in the library curriculum and offers instructional writing strategies and tips on giving feedback. Audience members will leave the presentation with a bibliography of resources and sample lesson plans to help them take-on this new instructional challenge.
