    • Variations in Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) mapping: from the natural language of patron terms to the controlled vocabulary of mapped lists

      Gault, Lora V; Shultz, M; Davies, Kathy J; Robert B. Greenblatt, MD Library, Medical College of Georgia (Medical Library Association, 2002-04)
      OBJECTIVES: This study compared the mapping of natural language patron terms to the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) across six MeSH interfaces for the MEDLINE database. METHODS: Test data were obtained from search requests submitted by patrons to the Library of the Health Sciences, University of Illinois at Chicago, over a nine-month period. Search request statements were parsed into separate terms or phrases. Using print sources from the National Library of Medicine, Each parsed patron term was assigned corresponding MeSH terms. Each patron term was entered into each of the selected interfaces to determine how effectively they mapped to MeSH. Data were collected for mapping success, accessibility of MeSH term within mapped list, and total number of MeSH choices within each list. RESULTS: The selected MEDLINE interfaces do not map the same patron term in the same way, nor do they consistently lead to what is considered the appropriate MeSH term. CONCLUSIONS: If searchers utilize the MEDLINE database to its fullest potential by mapping to MeSH, the results of the mapping will vary between interfaces. This variance may ultimately impact the search results. These differences should be considered when choosing a MEDLINE interface and when instructing end users.

    • Videos in Teaching

      Zuckerman, Eric J.; Department of Chemistry and Physics (2016-09)
      The use of videos as enhancements or major aspects of content dissemination has become widespread in the last decade. In the symposium, the tools for creating educational videos, enhancing those videos, and pedagogical applications of videos will be discussed from the context of 11 years of using video tutorials in the chemistry and physics curriculum at AU. Eric has been at AU since 2001 as the resident physical chemist. Eric has been strongly involved with science education pedagogy that extends from the use of technology in learning, to assessment practices, to Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL). Since 2003, Eric's classes have been primarily student centered, where POGIL, flipped learning and problem based learning methods are employed to build lifelong learners, while covering the course content.

    • When libraries combine: Creating a Georgia Regents University Libraries website

      Mears, Kim; Feher, Virginia (Association of College & Research Libraries, 2015-09-29)
      This paper is chapter 12 within the book Difficult decisions: Closing and merging academic libraries (S. Holder & A. Lannon (Eds.)). This publication explores all of these aspects of library consolidation through commentary, research, and case studies written by librarians with experience navigating these events. Individual chapters address either the entire process of a consolidation or closure, multiple aspects of one or more experiences, or one aspect that is particularly important such as communicating with faculty or using data to make decisions about collections. Difficult Decisions: Closing And Merging Academic Libraries is a comprehensive resource for library administrators faced with making these decisions, librarians asked to assist with these challenging projects, and anyone working in a library undergoing a merger.
