Cycle of Success: Andrew Ray

Cycle of Success is the idea that libraries, faculty, and students are linked; for one to truly succeed, we must all succeed. The path to success is formed by the connections between University of Missouri Libraries and faculty members, between faculty members and students, and between students and the libraries that serve them. More than just success, this is also a connection of mutual respect, support, and commitment to forward-thinking research.

 

Andrew Ray

Andrew Ray is a Master of Health Administration graduate student in the Department Health Management and Information (HMI). For his capstone project, Andrew worked to sign up research faculty for ORCID IDs. Part of this project was to analyze those who already used ORCID, and as the project progressed, to see who had signed up after the capstone started. Librarians Diane Johnson and Taira Meadowcroft, and Graduate Library Assistants, Rachel Alexander and Gemille Purnell, collaborated on thie project. 

"I was involved in a capstone project with several classmates from the HMI department that involved identifying methodes for capturing research productivity. The Health Sciences Library staff not only connected us with resources to do this, they also helped us collect and analyze the data relating to our project. Diane, Taira, and the other staff we worked with were always quick to respond to our requests and eager to provide additional expertise where needed. They are clearly passionate about helping their colleagues across the School of Medicine and related schools. I would encourage anyone with research needs to take advantage of the excellent resources the library has to offer. Our project absolutely benefited from their involvement."

Construction on the Health Sciences Library 2nd Floor

Please pardon our noise the week of August 7th while we undergo a bit of a makeover. We are excited to announce that we will be turning an office space on the 2nd floor into new space for our users! The funding is from a combination of student fee funds and library gift funds.

Starting the week of August 7th, Campus Facilities will be taking down a portion of the wall to the left of the back wall Art Display, in order to create a wider opening to new study space. They will lay new carpet borders, and give the walls a new coat of paint and bring in study furnishings. This new study space will house PBL workstations from the newest PBL labs, as well as some new seating.

We are thrilled for this new study space, and we hope you will be too!

Ms. Steen will share what SPARC has learned in working with other colleges and universities on OER: what methods for implementing OER have created the most impact in affordability and equitable learning, and strategies for how we can increase OER use and impact at our own university.

Open to all faculty, students, staff, across campus—anyone interested in creating, using, or supporting OER is encouraged to attend! 
Presentation will be 30 minutes with up to 30 additional minutes for Q&A.

The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) is a global coalition committed to making Open the default for research and education. SPARC empowers people to solve big problems and make new discoveries through the adoption of policies and practices that advance Open Access, Open Data, and Open Education.
