There was a good article on an early trend in publishing to omit or supplement citations in scholarly monographs in favor of online citations: https://chroniclevitae.com/news/665-wait-your-footnotes-are-in-cyberspace.
Caitlin Noussias and Melanie Smith-Farrell presented a session on using copyrighted material in courses in general and including ERES in Springboard in particular as part of a summer series on online courses from Instructional Services on campus. From all reports, the session was very well received. I have attached the powerpoint below so that you can see what our colleagues presented. This is the first time we have promoted ERES in Springboard, so we may also get more questions about this service.
My thanks to Caitlin and Melanie for representing us well!

During final exam week, additional testing space will be available in Bierce Library 279 for testing regularly done in Schrank Hall North 152. Please visit the Computer Based Assessment & Evaluation website for testing hours and additional information
As you may know, University Libraries is hosting two sessions in conjunction with the Institute for Teaching and Learning entitled Know the Roo: University Libraries Resources, Services, and Partnerships to Enhance Success. The sessions are today (4/17) at 1:00 and tomorrow (4/18) at 2:00 in room 154. I am lucky enough to be hosting the sessions and wanted to share the Libguide that I prepared (with plenty of help from Trevor and Lisa): http://libguides.uakron.edu/faculty. This is just for these sessions and can grow into a more general guide for faculty. Please send me any ideas you have for additional content or let me know if you would like to add to the guide.
As an aside, Trevor and I are aware that three of the widgets are not working properly. They will be fixed ASAP!
We are adding a 3D printer to Bierce Library. The Makerbot Replicator 2X will arrive within the next month. The Emerging Technology Lab team is working on its implementation and will announce the machine’s availability when it arrives.
There was a pretty good article in the Chronicle of Higher Education on UA’s early work on prior learning assessment / credentialing:
