When did you first volunteer to help out?
Late last summer, 2011, I knew I would be expected to become more active in professional groups when I became full time faculty in October. Professional organization activity is one of the tenure requirements.

Why did you get involved with UNYSLA?
I was encouraged by the President to become involved because the organization was unique.

This presentation examines the controversy’s background, the lawsuit and legal framework , the decision and its future implications.

UNYSLA Event Recap: Researchers Citation Habits and SLA Loyalty

By Sara Brown

Researchers Citation Habits:
Jeremy Cusker, Earth Sciences and Engineering Outreach Librarian at Cornell University, started the spring 2012 UNYSLA meeting by presenting his method for analyzing the citation habits of researchers, a feature not currently available Web of Science as a designated tool or function. This method enables him to gain a basic understanding of his department’s needs and research interests and, as it provides an overview of the research cited by faculty, it is useful for collection development purposes.
