This Poster describes a collaborative research project between the Culley and Tepe labs in the UC Department of Biology and UC Libraries Digital Scholarship Center presented at the 2017 UC Data Day ( https://libapps.libraries.uc.edu/blogs/dataday/past-data-days/). The project explores publication patterns of research involving hotspot areas of biodiversity and if researchers from developing countries which tend to have most of the biodiversity hotspots, are adequately represented as authors in the scientific literature indexed in Scopus (TM-Elsevier), JSTOR, and PubMed.
Starting or growing a co-op/internship program can be intimidating; for both educators and potential
employer partners. In an effort to learn the pain points for both parties, opportunities to break down
barriers and build bridges, and identify actionable steps to get started, faculty from the University of
Cincinnati’s Division of Experience-Based Learning and Career Education conducted a two-year research
project with 65 co-op and internship employers from more 15 unique industry clusters, and 50
university faculty and staff representing 24 unique institutions. This poster will graphically share the
resulting findings from more than 1250 qualitative responses, and generate discussion on the
educational pedagogy of creating best practices for employer partners. Find out what “the survey says”!
As an increasing number of universities expand programs globally, libraries are seen as an essential partner for this endeavor. Some library units are fully or semi-fully integrated into these academic programs. The University of Cincinnati (Ohio, USA) and Chongqing University (Chongqing, China) introduced the first co-operative engineering education program in China in 2013. Since this time, the University of Cincinnati library has been striving to connect American faculty and Chinese students in three main areas:
1.utilizing library websites and social media for reference, instruction, and outreach;
2.playing a peer role for traveling faculty with course materials, elearning, and basic technical support;
3.developing a sustainable relationship with matching librarians in Chongqing for collection development and beyond.
This presentation is intended to share experience and practices with librarians in similar positions, as well as administrators looking to develop a similar position.
