    Description: Copyright 2016 Johns Hopkins University Press. This article first appeared in PORTAL: LIBRARIES AND THE ACADEMY, Volume 16, Issue 4, October, 2016, pages ___. This qualitative study describes collaborations between academic librarians and faculty in education-related disciplines involving evidence-based practice (EBP), an approach that combines the best available research with the professional’s experience and expertise. The authors analyzed narratives of academic librarians and their educator partners using the lens of cultural historical activity theory (CHAT), a sociocultural idea about the interaction between human beings and their material and social environment. The authors identified four themes in the participant narratives: EBP as research-based practice; EBP as the librarian’s tool for initiating collaboration; varying degrees of EBP-related collaboration; and epistemological tensions involving the application of EBP in education. These findings illustrate the constructed nature of authoritative knowledge as described in the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.

    Title: Leveraging Author-Supplied Metadata, OAI-PMH, and XSLT to Catalog ETDs: A Case Study at a Large Research Library

    Description: Most academic theses and dissertations are now born-digital assets (i.e., electronic theses and dissertations). As such, they often coexist with author-supplied metadata that has the potential for being repurposed and enhanced to facilitate discovery and access in an online environment. The authors describe the evolution of the electronic thesis and dissertation (ETD) cataloging workflow at a large research library, from the era of print to the present day, with emphasis on the challenges and opportunities of harvesting author-supplied metadata for cataloging ETDs. The authors provide detailed explanations of the harvesting process, creating code for the metadata transformations, loading records, and quality assurance procedures.
