ItemInformation seeking behavior and user education in academic libraries: Research, theory, and practice. A selected list of information sources(1994) Fridie, Stephanie; SU LibrariesThe sources in this list are useful for academic reference and instruction librarians who are concerned with assisting and leaching novice or non-professional end-user searchers. The sources apply to many types of access to information and methods of information retrieval, such as online public access catalogs (OPACs), online databases, CD-ROM databases, bibliographic databases, factual-information databases, full-text databases, and remote access. Manual searching of print sources including periodical indexes, card catalogs, books and government documents is also considered. The topics covered include information needs, the research process, search stages, search vocabulary, search strategy, search outcome, evaluating and selecting relevant information sources, affective and cognitive aspects of information seeking behavior, user-intermediary interaction, human-computer interaction, individual differences, and characteristics of searchers. Topics concerning user education include implications of information technology for user education, the educational role of academic librarians, learning theories, cognitive models, instructional objectives, teaching methods, and the issues of critical thinking and information literacy as they apply to user education in the information seeking and retrieval process. The types of information sources listed include journal articles, books, conference proceedings, doctoral dissertations, and ERIC documents. Bibliographies, literature reviews, project descriptions, research reports, and explanations of theories and models are all included. Authors include professionals from the fields of computer science, education, information science, library science, and psychology. Most of the information sources were published from 1986 to 1993, although some significant items published before 1986 have been included. The main list of "COMPLETE BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATIONS" is arranged alphabetically by the names of the authors or editors of the publications. Subject headings which describe the information sources are listed in the "TOPICAL OUTLINE." In the "SUBJECT LISTING OF REFERENCES" brief citations which contain the authors' names, publication dates, and titles are listed for each subject heading from the "TOPICAL OUTLINE." More information for each of the brief references can be found in the list of "COMPLETE BIBLIOGRAPHIC CITATIONS." Abstracts of many of the sources in the list can be found by searching the ERIC database. ItemA Papist in a Protestant Age: The Case of Richard Bennett, 1667-1749(The Journal of Southern History, 1994-05) Hardy, Beatriz; SU LibrariesThis is a case study of what it meant to be gentry or elite in colonial America, specifically in Maryland. Richard Bennett III (1667-1749) of Queen Anne's County was the richest man in the colony. A Catholic, he was denied the right to hold political office due to his religion, but his wealth and social standing allowed him to serve as a leader, both for the Catholics of Maryland and for the colony as a whole. ItemRoman Catholics, Not Papists: Catholic Identity in Maryland, 1689-1776(1997) Hardy, BeatrizDuring the period from 1689 to 1776, Catholics in Maryland found themselves in an odd position. While Maryland had been founded by a Catholic and in part as a refuge for Catholics, during these years they faced varying levels of persecution and discrimination. Their enemies identified them as papists, but they always called themselves Roman Catholics. a religious identity that was strengthened during periods of persecution by Anglicans. At first, they were very loyal to the proprietary Calvert family and saw themselves as English Catholics, but various acts, culminating in a double tax on Catholics during the French and Indian War, caused them to lose faith in the Calverts by the late 1750s. At the same time, imperial events weakened their loyalty to England and international events--especially the worldwide suppression of the Jesuits in 1773--caused them to see themselves as Marylanders who happened to be Catholic, allying with Maryland Protestants against the Calverts and the crown. Item"The Papists. . . have shewn a laudable Care and Concern": Catholicism, Anglicanism, and Slave Religion in Colonial Maryland(2003) Hardy, BeatrizThis article addresses the longstanding historiographical debate over the conditions of slave life in the Americas, especially the treatment of slaves in Protestant Anglo America versus Catholic Latin America, by comparing the treatment of slaves by Catholics and Anglicans in colonial Maryland, an area where other factors--ethnicity, economy, climate, laws--were the same for both religious groups. It compares the attitudes of Anglican and Catholic clergy and laity about instructing the enslaved population in religion and providing access to sacraments and rites. It then looks at why slaves might have found one church more appealing than the other.

ItemCutting without Cursing: A Successful Cancellation Project(2016-07-01) Hardy, Beatriz Betancourt; Zimmerman, Martha C.; Hanscom, Laura A.; SU LibrariesThe Salisbury University Libraries embarked on a serials and database cancellation project in the 2014-2015 academic year, eventually cutting nearly 20% of journals without causing any faculty protests. Picking up ideas from numerous other libraries, the three-person project task force developed a three-stage process: 1) preparation—gathering data and laying the groundwork for getting feedback; 2) getting feedback from liaisons, faculty, and departments; and 3) making decisions about what to cut and sharing the results. This article details the steps taken and key recommendations for other libraries undertaking similar projects.
