Damasco and Dracine Hodges Tenure and Promotion Experiences of Academic Librarians of Color College & Research Libraries Journal Article Peer-Review I researched and wrote sections of the introduction and literature review for the paper. Additionally, I designed sections of the survey instrument and identified appropriate listservs for our target demographic. I shared equally with my co-author in the data analysis, writing and discussion, proofing revisions prior to publication. This study broadly examines factors impacting work-life experiences of library faculty of color within the framework of tenure policies and processes. An online survey was sent out to academic librarians of color to gauge perceptions of tenure and promotion policies and processes, professional activities and productivity, organizational climate and culture, and job satisfaction and retention. Results of the survey showed mixed findings regarding the impact of race on the tenure and promotion process. Findings can be used to inform future discussions of recruitment and retention for academic librarians of color and to improve the overall tenure experience.

University of Notre Dame, South Bend, Indiana, United States. (May 2012) http://blogs.nd.edu/emorgan/2012/03/pda/. Dracine Hodges The Long Tail of PDA Presenter University of Notre Dame Patron-Driven Acquisitions Symposium University of Notre Dame Regional Presentation Abstract: Patron-driven acquisitions (PDA) titles are known to generate usage at least once at the moment a short-term loan or purchase is triggered. Despite the current PDA buzz, many remain unconvinced of the potential for ongoing circulation. There is skepticism over the sustainability of this model with regard to user interest and the validity of shrinking librarian mediation in the selection process. To discuss these issues, data for content purchased during Ohio State’s 2009/2010 e-book PDA pilot is examined. Several years of usage activity is charted and analyzed for budgetary implications, including cost per use. Key issues surrounding academic library patron-driven collection development philosophies are explored. Particularly, this period when traditional methods of collection development must be maintained, while concurrently moving toward what appears to be the future with patron-driven collection development.
  • Dracine Hodges, Presenter. "The Acquisitions Renaissance." Presented at American Library Association Annual Conference 2011, Peers within Field., New Orleans, LA (Jun 2011) http://connect.ala.org/node/137582. Dracine Hodges The Acquisitions Renaissance Presenter American Library Association Annual Conference 2011 The Future of Acquisitions: Planning for Change in an Ever-Changing Environment National Presentation Abstract: The operations involved in acquiring library materials traditionally include selection, order, receipt, and payment. However, shifting priorities and emerging philosophies are redefining this function with Acquisitions serving as a hub. Acquisitions work at OSU Libraries is expanding to include electronic migration, print retention and withdrawal management, and patron-initiated collection development. During this renaissance period, OSU is also experiencing significant staff retirements and is steadily looking for ways to pass on specialized skill sets and historical knowledge through targeted succession planning and bridging the gap between seasoned and entry-level librarians and staff.
