INLS 153 Resource Selection and Evaluation
[Last Updated: 2006-03-01, 20:25]
Meeting Time: Mondays and Wednesdays, 9:30-10:45 AM
Location: Manning 307
Instructor: Cal Lee
Office: 207A Manning
E-Mail: callee [at] ils [dot] unc [dot] edu
Office Hours: Monday, 11-12; Wednesday, 10:45-11:45; or by appointment
Course Web Site: http://blackboard.unc.edu/
This course is about the identification, provision, and evaluation of resources to meet primary needs of clientele in different institutional environments. We will explore the defining characteristics of collections; the importance of defining the scope and boundaries of collections; developing collections that are valuable to one or more identifiable communities; ensuring the sustainability of collections; and legal and ethical considerations associated with selecting, evaluating, collecting, managing and providing access to information and documentary artifacts. We will also discuss the lifecycle of information - from conception and creation to deaccessioning or long-term preservation and access.
The second part of the semester will be devoted to issues that arise with specific types of materials and collections: manuscripts, personal papers, government documents and unique collections; scholarly communications; collecting internet-accessible materials; creating internet-accessible materials (digitization); and non-textual materials. We will also consider ways in which cultural institutions can collaborate in their collecting activities and ways in which the efforts of different types of organizations (libraries, archives and museums) have begun to converge in recent years.
Special Needs: If you feel that you may need an accommodation for a disability or have any other special need, please make an appointment to discuss this with me. I will best be able to address special circumstances if I know about them early in the semester. My office hours and contact information are listed at the beginning of this syllabus.
It is very important that you both attribute your sources and avoid excessive use of quotes (see separate handout called "In Your Own Words"). Be aware of the University of North Carolina policy on plagiarism. Your written work must be original. Ask if you have any doubts about what this means.
All cases of plagiarism (unattributed quotation or paraphrasing) of anyone else's work, whether from someone else's answers to homework or from published materials, will be officially reported and dealt with according to UNC policies (Instrument of Student Judicial Governance, Section II.B.1. and III.D.2, http://instrument.unc.edu).
The most important measures of your performance in this and all other classes at SILS will be your ability to engage in challenging materials with your fellow students; your reputation for insights and professionalism among your peers and with your instructor; your integration of course material with the other things you are learning both inside and outside the classroom; and your ability to apply what you’ve learned in your future career. However, the conventions of academia dictate that I also assign labels (called grades) to your work on assignments and for the course as a whole.
Based on UNC Registrar Policy for graduate-level courses (http://regweb.unc.edu/resources/rpm24.php), both assignment and semester grades will be H, P, L or F. Few students will obtain an "H," which signifies an exceptionally high level of performance (higher than an "A" in an A-F systems). The following is a more detailed breakdown:
H = Superior work: complete command of subject, unusual depth, great creativity or originality
P+ = Above average performance: solid work somewhat beyond what was required and good
command of the material
P = Satisfactory performance that meets course requirements (expected to be the median grade of
all students in the course).
P- = Acceptable work in need of improvement
L = Unacceptable graduate performance: substandard in significant ways
F = Performance that is seriously deficient and unworthy of graduate credit
