Narrative

Overview of ECU Libraries

Joyner Library and Laupus Health Sciences Library are the two libraries serving East Carolina University.  The libraries have separate mission statements (Joyner mission and Laupus mission) that are closely aligned with the University’s mission.  They are situated on different campuses in Greenville, serve primarily separate constituencies, and have different reporting and funding structures.  They successfully collaborate on projects, systems and initiatives that benefit the ECU community.  Joyner and Laupus Libraries contribute financial resources and personnel to create, develop, and manage a “virtual library” of electronic resources identified as valuable to faculty and students at both campuses.  This successful collaboration enables ECU to support a robust and rich collection of electronic resources for on and off campus use by students, faculty, clinicians and researchers.

Joyner Library is the main academic library for East Carolina University.  ECU’s Music Library, located in the A.J. Fletcher Music Center, is a department of Joyner Library.   Joyner’s Library dean reports to the university’s Provost and Senior Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs.  

The William E. Laupus Health Sciences Library serves the ECU Division of Health Sciences with an outreach commitment to health care practitioners throughout the 23 counties in the region.  The director of Laupus Library reports to the Vice Chancellor for the Division of Health Sciences. 

Joyner Library’s Strategic Plan, titled Academic Library Services FY2013 and FY 2014 Goals covering the period July 1, 2012 – June 30, 2014, reflects a commitment to providing environments, facilities, resources and collections that support the university’s teaching, service and research missionLaupus Library’s Strategic Plan reflects these same commitments.  The appropriateness of existing facilities and resources and the need for improvements are determined through ongoing assessment.

Joyner  and Laupus Library Shared Services

Critical services and resources are provided jointly by Joyner and Laupus Libraries through the Virtual Library @ ECU initiative.  These include the library catalog system from SirsiDynix which allows researchers to simultaneously search the holdings of both libraries; the Summon One Search Web-scale discovery service;  the E-Journal/E-Book Portal, which provides access to more than 68,000 electronic serials and 270,000 e-books; and The ScholarShip, ECU’s institutional repository, which provides a digital archive of the scholarly output of ECU faculty and students, including theses and dissertations.   

New e-journal and database subscriptions and other purchases from the Virtual Library @ ECU budget are considered by the Electronic Resources Review Committee, which has members from both libraries and receives input from university faculty and students.  This ongoing collaboration has successfully eliminated duplicate subscriptions between the two libraries and increased the number of e-resources available.  All resources funded by the Virtual Library are licensed for the entire ECU community.  Remote access to electronic resources is provided to all ECU faculty, staff and students 24x7 via a proxy server.  Authentication is provided via the individual’s university e-mail username (ECU Pirate ID) and passphrase.  A Virtual Library @ ECU Libraries Web page presents information about shared resources.  Expenditures from the Virtual Library budget were $2,296,633 in FY2009-2010 and $2,728,569 in FY2010-2011. The FY2011-12 budget is $2,355,839. 

The 2010-2011 ECU Graduating Senior Survey (GSS) and Graduate Student Exit Survey (GSES) indicate high levels of satisfaction with the ECU Libraries’ facilities (Joyner, Laupus and Music Libraries), resources and services:

Joyner Library

Joyner Library Facilities

Joyner Library’s facilities support the institutional mission by providing students and faculty with physical space conducive to study and research, access to print and online collections, and the technology required to complete their work.  Joyner Library is open 116.5 hours per week during the semester, with extended 24-hour access during the final weeks of class and the exam period.  Joyner Library has 280,000 square feet, while the Music Library has 3600 square feet.  The Library provides 288 desktop computers, each loaded with a large suite of productivity applications, Internet tools, and specialized course-related software.  A number of computers are equipped with scanners.  Microform reader/printer/scanners are available in several locations.  An extensive, recently upgraded wireless network is available throughout both buildings.  The Library loans laptops, video cameras, headphones, tripods, e-book readers, iPads, digital cameras, calculators, and other equipment. 

Joyner Library’s first floor features the Collaborative Learning Center (CLC) with 144 computer workstations, many with large or touch screen monitors arranged to facilitate group work, as well as a presentation practice/viewing room.  With the CLC renovation in 2010, seating on first floor increased from 340 to 525.  The Teaching Resources Center, located on the second floor, was renovated in 2011, increasing seating from 146 to 196 and adding a classroom/lab with a Smartboard instructor station.  These renovations were informed by student and faculty focus groups, interviews, and mapping activities.  In addition, a portion of the second floor was remodeled in 2011 to accommodate the Project STEPP (Supporting Transition and Education through Planning and Partnerships) program.  Eleven group study rooms, quiet study space and a classroom as well as staff offices were added.  

The Library instruction program is supported by three additional classrooms.  Two have desktop computers for students and Sympodiums for use by instructors; the third is set up to support seminar-style classes, with laptops available for use.   Joyner Library offers approximately 42 group study rooms, many with large wall-mounted screens, and 53 individual study rooms.  Open study space and numerous study carrels are provided on four floors.  The number of group and individual study rooms as well as the number of such rooms that can be reserved in advance were increased in response to student demand.

Two student learning resource centers are located in Joyner Library:  Project STEPP and the University Writing Center. Project STEPP is a collaborative program that connects resources on and off campus and offers comprehensive academic, social, and life-skills support to a select number of students with identified Specific Learning Disabilities who have shown the potential to succeed in college. Students in Project STEPP are assigned a personal librarian to work with throughout their college experience.  The University Writing Program consists of the Program in Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) and the University Writing Center.  WAC supports the University's Writing Intensive (WI) Course Requirement. Every student who graduates from ECU must complete English 1100, English 1200, and two upper division WI courses.  At least one of the upper division courses must be in the student's major.  Library instruction is a core component of the English 1100 and 1200 curriculum and is available for all Writing Intensive courses, whether taught on campus or via distance education. The University Writing Center offers students instruction in basic writing skills and assistance with specific writing assignments in any discipline. Distance education students can submit writing for online consultation.  More information about these resources is contained in the narrative for Comprehensive Standard 3.4.9. 

Joyner Library Services

Joyner Library offers personal research and reference assistance to members of the ECU community (both on-campus and distance learners, faculty and staff) and the public.  The Ask a Librarian service provides assistance in person at several reference desks, by telephone, text message, e-mail, and instant message.  In 2010-2011, there were approximately 41,160 reference transactions and consultations.

Joyner Library has an active course-integrated instruction program.  Library staff members taught 810 sessions in the 2010-2011 academic year, with 17,700 participants.  Distance education faculty and students are offered instruction sessions via pre-recorded video, online web conferencing software, embedding resources in course management systems, and in-person.  Reference and instruction services are also provided through LibGuides and online tutorials

Interlibrary Loan provides ECU students, faculty and staff with research materials not available at Joyner Library at no charge  – often within hours for articles delivered electronically to the desktop and one or two weeks for loaned items.  Distance education students and faculty who live outside the county in which ECU is located can use Document Delivery free of charge to have books and other physical materials shipped to their homes.  All graduate students, faculty and staff, as well as undergraduate distance education students and members of the Friends of Joyner Library may request the library to scan articles from Joyner's print and microform collections for free delivery by e-mail.

Circulation manages materials and equipment check out as well as print and electronic reserves. The Place Hold service for ECU students, faculty and staff allows patrons to request that materials available in the Library be pulled by staff and held for pick-up.  Students present an ECU OneCard or distance education student card to check out items.  Educator cards are available at no charge to K-12 educators in eastern North Carolina.  Members of the public can purchase an annual borrower’s card.  Faculty members may use an online form to place Library or personal materials on reserve. 

Focused areas within Joyner Library include the:


The
Joyner Library Web site provides comprehensive information about Library facilities, departments, services, policies, collections, and other resources.  In FY2010-2011, there were approximately 2.7 million views of the Web site.  User aids on the Web site include How Do I’s, online tutorials, Ask a Librarian, and LibGuide: Guides by Subject.  Specific information is provided for users with disabilities on the Joyner Library Disability Services page. Usability tests are conducted regularly and are used to improve the functionality and overall design of the site.


Students enrolled at East Carolina University as distance education students are provided special
distance education services to ensure access to Joyner Library’s physical and electronic collections.  The Distance Education Coordinator manages the delivery of Library services in conjunction with the Distance Education Team and staff throughout the library.  Special services are also provided to faculty teaching distance education courses on the Services for DE Faculty page.

Joyner Library mounts numerous exhibits and holds programs to support ECU’s teaching, research, and service mission.  These include the annual Eastern North Carolina Literary Homecoming, the Librarian to Librarian Networking Summit, the Paraprofessional Conference, FaculTeas featuring faculty discussions centered on their current research, Faculty Book Awards, the annual Graduate Student Art Exhibit, and faculty art exhibits. 

Joyner Library Appropriateness of Collections

The Joyner Library General Collection Development Policy describes how Joyner Library builds, maintains and evaluates collections that support the instructional, research and service programs of colleges within the Division of Academic Affairs and related centers and institutes.  This policy is supplemented with a variety of special collections or format collection development policies (Electronic Resources Collection Development Policy, Digital Collections Development Policy, Music Library Collection Development Policy, Rare Book Collection Development Guidelines, East Carolina Manuscript Collection Development Policy, Verona Joyner Langford North Carolina Collection Development Policy, Reference Collection Management Policy, and the Teaching Resources Center Collection Development Policy) and subject guidelines. 

Most academic units’ faculty codes of operation include a procedure for selecting a Library representative to work with the Library’s collection development staff.  A web page lists these Liaison Librarians & Library Representatives and their responsibilities.    

To ensure that the collection supports the instructional programs of the university, the Library monitors new course proposals and participates in the academic program development process.  Faculty submitting new course proposals at undergraduate and graduate levels must indicate whether initial Library resources are adequate.  If they are not adequate, the resources needed and their cost must be listed.  The Assessing Readiness to Offer New Degree Programs form, part of the academic program development process, includes a section describing “current holdings in library resources in the proposed program and projected library resources needed to support the proposed program.”  The Library is a partner in accreditation reviews of existing programs.  Library reports are submitted as part of this process. 

The Library ensures that the collection supports university research and service by participating in meetings of the Graduate Assembly, liaison librarian collaboration with research centers and institutes, monitoring of grant activity and faculty publications, and surveys of faculty.  The ECU Faculty Senate Libraries Committee provides input on faculty needs.  The University Special Collections Committee provides direction and counsel for the Special Collections Division and specifically for the Manuscript Collection. 

The Interlibrary Loan Purchase on Demand program was instituted in 2006 to facilitate the rapid purchase of materials requested by ECU faculty, staff and students through the interlibrary loan process.  In its first four years of operation, 993 items were purchased and added to the collection, rather than being borrowed.  To be considered for purchase, items must comply with the Purchase on Demand Guidelines for Interlibrary Loans document.  In 2011, Joyner Library set up a demand-drive e-book acquisition service through YBP, its main approval vendor, to further expedite the availability of materials to faculty and students.

In addition to the Virtual Library budget that had expenditures of $2,554,131 in FY2010-11, Joyner Library also has a separate acquisitions budget, which totaled $2,121,683 in FY2010-11.  This budget covers print and electronic monographs, DVDs, print and online serials, databases not funded by the Virtual Library, media materials, and other resources that support the curriculum and research needs of the university. 

Joyner Library is a selective federal depository, receiving 68% of the items available through the Federal Depository Library ProgramThe Library also provides access to over 500,000 online government titles.  Equipment needed to access all types of federal materials is available in the Federal Documents Collection area.

Unique Library content is digitized and made available through Joyner Library’s Digital Collections.  More than 35,000 images are available, including those in the award-winning Seeds of Change: The Daily Reflector Image Collection.  Content is selected for digitization in accordance with the Digital Collections Development Policy.  Usability testing was conducted to assess and improve the Digital Collections interface.

Assessment of Joyner Facilities, Services, and Collections

Joyner Library uses surveys, usage data, focus groups, interviews, peer comparisons, benchmarking, classroom and internal instruction program assessments, a Student Advisory Group and informal methods to ensure that its facilities, services and collections are appropriate to support the institution’s teaching, research, and service mission.  These multiple perspectives are used to identify areas for improvement.  Actions following recent assessments include extending library hours, adding group and individual study rooms, improving the enforcement of quiet areas, creating a tutorial for graduate students, implementing the Summon One Search discovery tool (with Laupus Library), redesigning the library Web site, increasing the acquisitions budget for selected areas of the collection, adding artwork and comfortable seating, instituting free student printing, and adding more equipment for check-out.  Additional information about assessment activities is included in the narrative for Comprehensive Standard 3.3.1.3 and here

Laupus Library

Laupus Library Facilities

The William E. Laupus Health Sciences Library was completed in 2006.  It is part of a 300,000 square foot Health Sciences Building.   This state-of-the-art building on the Health Sciences Campus houses the 72,000 square foot Library, the College of Allied Health Sciences and the College of Nursing.  It is located near the East Carolina Heart Institute, the School of Dental Medicine, the Family Medicine building, and the Brody School of Medicine and is a short walk from Pitt County Memorial Hospital and other clinical departments.  Laupus Library’s central location enhances opportunities for interdisciplinary research and advanced learning through technology.  The Library is open 99.5 hours a week year round.  Hours were extended in the spring of 2012 as a response to student survey feedback.

The Library provides seating for 457 users, and has three state-of-the-art Smart classrooms, meeting rooms on all four floors, a teleconference room, 31 small group study rooms, 56 public computer workstations, and collaborative work spaces along with access to print and electronic collections, and supportive technology.  The Library supports wired and wireless networks and printing.  The Evelyn Fike Laupus Exhibition Gallery offers public exhibit space.

The Library’s main service desk is on the second floor, in proximity to the Access Services and the Information Services departments.  Sixteen computer stations in this area are equipped with a large suite of productivity applications, tools, and specialized software.   The Learning Commons, a highly-integrated technology and information center, is centrally located for students and faculty to interact, attend technology training classes, and access technology and technologists. The Learning Commons features a full range of traditional and electronic information resources and services, a study area, computer lab, collaborative resource centers, electronic classrooms, and a multimedia authoring center. The Computer Lab offers technological assistance along with equipment for use on site and loan, and curriculum-related software.  It includes an Assistive Technology Center for clients with physical disabilities.  The Computer Classroom, equipped with 32 laptops and an instructor computer, supports the Library’s instructional services program and is available to Division of Health Sciences faculty, staff, and students. Laupus also provides a reserve collection (available through a Material Reserve Request), anatomy models, and audiovisuals (DVD, VHS, and CD-ROMs) which can be viewed in a private study carrel or in a nearby conference room.

The Document Delivery / Interlibrary Loan Department  provides patrons with access to materials from outside institutions and processes requests from other libraries for materials from Laupus Library.  Most documents are delivered electronically to decrease turn-around time.

The Media Production department provides assistance with and consultation in telecasting; video making, editing, and capturing; and VHS-to-DVD or Web, and duplicating.  Multimedia &Technology Services (MTS) department provides four videoconferencing rooms in two locations.

The History Collections preserves and makes available to researchers materials on the history of health care and the history of the Division of Health Sciences and Pitt County Memorial Hospital.  A museum component of the History Collections, The Country Doctor Museum, located in Bailey, North Carolina approximately one hour west of Greenville, collects, preserves, and interprets the history and work of rural physicians through displays of artifacts from the early 19th century through the early 20th century. 

Laupus Library Services

Health Sciences liaison librarians are assigned colleges, schools or departments to market Library services and resources, deliver targeted instruction, solicit user input to ensure that collections are appropriate and current, and build professional relationships with faculty and student cohorts.  The librarians identify faculty to champion new services or new library technologies, and to partner with for teaching high end searching skills.  Laupus Library currently assigns liaison librarians to the College of Nursing, College of Allied Health Sciences, Brody School of Medicine, and School of Dental Medicine.  Liaisons attend faculty meetings, give orientations to new faculty and students, are available for research consultations, and assist with clinical research and case presentations.  They assist teaching faculty with curriculum development and support and contribute classroom Library instruction.  Librarians provide support and library skills instruction to students in groups or individually and support staff development and education programs at Pitt County Memorial Hospital.  They solicit and respond to requests for materials to be added to the Library’s collection.  They support Distance Education by providing library instruction online and inserting links to relevant resources in BlackBoard.

Liaison librarians work with teaching faculty to provide library skills instruction as part of the sequenced curriculum for their classes.  These in-class instruction sessions go beyond basic “orientation” to Library services and resources and generally are taught prior to student research projects. Laupus Library LibGuides are Web-based starting points for research.  These guides are targeted to Distance Education students.  They are created by Laupus liaison librarians to help students learn which databases to use, where to find books, and more. Laupus and Joyner Library partnered to license this online platform. 

Laupus Library Classes on basic Library skills and searching techniques for specific resources are offered each semester.  Class topics range from “How to Find Full-Text”, to searching techniques on specific databases and various other online resources.  Brief classes are available as asynchronous self-paced modules. 

Library users contact Laupus Librarians with their reference questions by visiting the service desk or via chat service that is staffed six days a week.  Users may also email questions via Ask-a-Librarian.  Librarians provide one-on-one or small group consultations (in-depth reference questions or research projects) upon request.  In 2010, librarians answered 2,843 reference questions.   Librarians addressed 2,797 questions during FY 2011.

Instructional aids to support ECU Distance Education students include asynchronous online video tutorials and help sheets available on the Library’s Electronic Resources Help Sheets and Tutorials web site. These resources assist students and faculty in using library research resources and services.  Tutorials range from more formal competency based modules that include quizzes, to short “how to” clips and handouts.  

Laupus Library’s Web site is the portal to electronic resources and instructional tutorials and provides an introduction to the facility and services.  In 2009 and again in 2010 the Web site received over 300,000 visits.  During 2011 over 529,000 user visits were made to the Web site.  All online databases and resources are available to affiliated users, including Distance Education students, from any location via the Laupus Library Web site. Distance Education students are directed to the Off Campus/Distance Education Info web site which provides information on how to access electronic resources through ECU’s Proxy Server. 

Learning resources in the Laupus Library Computer Lab are offered in Exam Master Online, a suite of subject specific testing and review modules for physician assistants, nursing, medical students, dentistry, as well as reviews for internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, family medicine and other medical specialties.

Outreach Services / Eastern Area Health Education Center Library Services, based in Laupus Library and staffed by a health sciences librarian, provides outreach health sciences library services, resources and support to health sciences preceptors in community-based teaching and practice sites.  These preceptors work with ECU health sciences students on clinical rotations throughout the 23 counties of eastern North Carolina.               

Laupus Library is represented on Curriculum Committees across the Division of Health Sciences (DHS).  Liaison librarians are members of the first and second year Medical School Curriculum Committees.  The Laupus Library associate director has a seat on the Brody School of Medicine’s Executive Curriculum Committee.  These committees are an avenue for discussion, input, and information about the role for the Library in the curriculums within the DHS.

Laupus Library faculty contributed to the proposal from the Health Services Information Management for its graduate program and the initial accreditation for the School of Dental Medicine through the Commission on Dental Accreditation.  Librarians provided relevant documentation for the Master of Public Health program in 2009 and data for the Education Resources standards for LCME (Liaison Committee for Medical Education) re-accreditation in 2012.

The Medical History Interest Group (MHIG) was established in the fall of 2001 by the Laupus Library History Collections in collaboration with the School of Medicine’s Medical Humanities department to sponsor a series of public lectures to promote a greater understanding of the historical and philosophical underpinnings of today's health care disciplines. 

Research Support Services

Laupus and Joyner librarians work collaboratively to inform patrons of their rights as authors, relay copyright guidelines, and assist with publishing concerns through the ECU Libraries’ Scholarly Communications Committee.

Laupus Library has representatives on Research Committees in the Brody School of Medicine and in the College of Nursing to provide important linkages between teaching faculty research and Library services, support and resources.  The associate director also participates on the Associate Deans for Research Council of the DHS.

Liaison librarians consult with faculty, researchers, and students on projects requiring use and analysis of the health sciences literature.  They collaborate on long term research projects and publications. 

Laupus Library faculty have actively contributed to the knowledge base in clinical medicine by co-authoring articles with practicing physicians that are regularly published in peer reviewed medical journals through the  Family Physicians Inquiries Network (FPIN) program.  FPIN has developed over the past ten years in response to a need to make evidence-based family medicine and clinical scholarship more accessible to family physicians in clinical practice.

The Health Sciences Author Recognition Award  is an annual event sponsored by Laupus Library that provides campus-wide recognition for both faculty and staff for their published research and scholarly contributions.

Laupus Library offers a poster printing service across the Division of Health Sciences for conference presentations.

Laupus Library Appropriateness of Collections

The William E. Laupus Health Sciences Library Collection Development Policy is the document that guides the direction and specifics for the Library’s collections.  During the 2010-2011 academic year the Library circulating book collection was approximately 32,700 titles.  Periodic, systematic review and weeding of the monograph collection, print and electronic, based on detailed criteria (use, reserve demand, program relevance, faculty input) keeps the collection current and gives reference and liaison librarians an empirical view of collection strengths and weaknesses.  In FY 2011 Laupus Library had an acquisitions budget of $1,034,243 and in FY 2012 the acquisitions budget was $1,086,300 for print and electronic book and journal collections, databases, and audio visual and manipulative (anatomical model) collections.

A systematic evaluation of the circulating print book collection was conducted in 2011-12.  Use by subject, measured by circulation, was assessed and compared to volume of the collection.  Currency (year of publication), and pricing information was evaluated.  Data was reviewed and analyzed for collection development purposes. 

The librarians conduct a thorough assessment of the library’s subject/discipline-based monograph approval plan every three years. The Library’s approval plan acquires titles from recognized recommended health sciences lists such as the Brandon- Hill list and Doody’s Core Titles in the Health Sciences.  E-books are being acquired by the library for the use of our on-campus and distance students and faculty. 

Laupus Library’s Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery Department annually reports to the collection development librarian regarding journal titles that are frequently borrowed from other libraries.  These titles are evaluated for potential purchase due to their high use over time. 

Health Sciences faculty are invited to recommend resources for acquisition via the Purchase Request form on the Library’s Web site.  These requests receive a high priority.  Requesters are notified when the book has arrived.

Laupus Library’s collection development librarian serves on the Joyner Library Electronic Resources Review Committee. The ERRC reviews database and e-journals to ensure appropriate acquisitions of electronic resources, avoid unnecessary duplicate purchases, deselect underperforming resources, and inform each Library of new interdisciplinary databases valuable to patrons on each side of campus.

E- Resource cost/use data for Laupus-funded resources are analyzed and evaluated by the Collection Development/E-Resources Committee for review of resource levels of use and appropriateness.  The committee makes recommendations prior to renewal of resource subscriptions.  Electronic Resource Trials of new electronic resources recommended for purchase are promoted to health sciences faculty, who provide input including evaluation feedback as to whether new products or resources warrant addition to the Library’s collections.

Laupus and Joyner Libraries participate in The Carolina Consortium, a cooperative group of both public and private academic libraries in both of the Carolinas that allows academic libraries in the Carolinas to leverage their purchasing power to obtain favorable pricing on electronic resources. Membership in this collective enables the libraries to receive favorable pricing on major journals packages like Wiley-Blackwell, Sage, Elsevier, and Mary Ann Liebert, on databases from EBSCO, and software packages like the 3-D interactive anatomy.tv from OVID.

Laupus Library contributes data regarding Library facilities, collections and services to schools in the Division of Health Sciences for program accreditation reviews. 

Assessment of Laupus Facilities, Services, and Collections

Laupus Library uses surveys, usage data, interviews, peer comparisons, benchmarking, and informal methods to ensure that its facilities, services and collections are appropriate to support the institution’s teaching, research, and service mission.  These multiple perspectives are used to identify areas for improvement.  Actions following recent assessments include updating and creating new LibGuides, improving access to online resources, extending hours during final exams, starting an iPad loan program, adding mobile content, and improving library instruction.  Additional information about assessment activities is included in the narrative for Comprehensive Standard 3.3.1.3 and here.

Assessment of Virtual Library Collections

COUNTER-compliant statistics from e-resource vendors, Web site traffic, and Serials Solutions’ electronic resource management module statistics are assessed along with cost to determine cost-per-use of e-journals, e-books, and databases.  If a resource is considered for discontinuation the individual or department that recommended it is contacted to discuss its continued value.

As faculty recommend adding new e-resources, they are added to the Joyner and Laupus Library Web sites for a trial period and input is solicited before the decision is made to purchase.
