ItemMinor stressors and depressed mood: reactivity is more strongly correlated than total stress(John Wiley & Sons, Ltd., 2002-04) Felsten, GaryThis study evaluated how strongly total stress and stress reactivity to minor stressors were correlated with depressed mood in traditional and non-traditional college women (n = 146). Stress reactivity, which was conceptualized as mean stress per stressor, accounted more strongly than number of potentially stressful encounters for total stress, and was more strongly correlated than total stress with symptoms of depressed mood, after controlling for initial depressed mood and neuroticism. Reactivity was associated with greater use of avoidance coping and higher levels of neuroticism, which suggest that it may represent a stable individual difference and possibly serve as a predictor of depressed mood, especially in response to minor stressors. ItemStress reactivity and vulnerability to depressed mood in college students(Elsevier, 2004-03) Felsten, GaryTwo studies reported here found that in response to common, minor stressors, stress reactivity (defined as mean stress per stressor) was a stronger predictor than total stress of depressed mood in traditional and nontraditional college men and women. A prospective study found individual reactivity scores varied over time, but relationships between stress and depressed mood held across four monthly assessments. Stress reactivity also accounted for more incremental variance in depressed mood than total stress after controlling for previous depressed mood. When students in the cross-sectional study were classified into reactivity groups, scores for depressed mood increased steadily for students in the very low through high reactivity groups, as did percentages of students with depressed mood scores that might indicate depression in normal populations. This study also found that stress reactivity was more strongly correlated than total stress with neuroticism and its facets (or traits) of depression, anxiety, and vulnerability to stress in the five-factor model of personality. Taken together, these studies suggest that elevated stress reactivity to minor stressors may indicate diminished ability to cope with everyday challenges and may predict increased vulnerability to depressed mood in a normal population. ItemWhat's the Big IDeA: Institutional Digital Repositories @ Your Library(2005-05-13T14:48:43Z) Dill, Emily; Petsche, Kevin F.; Palmer, Kristi L.Presenters will show one example of how to start and maintain a digital institutional repository. Though some philosophical debate regarding scholarly communication, copyright, and preservation issues will take place, the focus will be on dissecting IUPUI’s experience in implementing the open-source D-Space software and how the ideas put forth might be incorporated at librarians’ home campuses. The presenters will take participants through the process of implementing a digital institutional repository in a chronological fashion, beginning with assessing campus needs for such a collection. Participants will discuss benefits and challenges that might be associated with implementing a repository at this point. Presenters will then describe the database and workflow structure to participants, allowing time for participants to reflect on how an institutional repository might look at their campus. Finally, participants will learn about the presenters’ attempts to promote the service to faculty and discuss how they might get the word out on their campuses. ItemWhat's the Big IDeA?: Considerations for Implementing an Institutional Repository(Emerald Publications, 2005-07) Dill, Emily; Palmer, Kristi L.Continually increasing journal costs have pushed libraries and research institutions to consider alternative forms of scholarly publication. One such form is that of the institutional digital repository (IR). As an early implementer of DSpace, an open-source institutional digital repository software product, IUPUI offers those just beginning to think about IRs an overview of issues such as: choosing a repository platform, staffing and technology needs, metadata and controlled vocabulary concerns, promotion, and time challenges. While the article outlines the process IUPUI followed to create its own IR, the piece is universalized to address the concerns of any new IR implementer. ItemPreaching to the Choir?: How Academic Librarians Really Feel About Open Access(Electronic Resources & Libraries 2nd Annual Conference (Atlanta, Ga.), 2007-02) Palmer, Kristi L.; Dill, EmilyThis presentation will report on the results of a national survey of academic librarians opinions about open access. The authors will discuss what the findings tell us about librarians acceptance of the open access movement and how these attitudes might shape the future of scholarly communication initiatives in libraries. ItemSurvey of Librarian Attitudes About Open Access(2007-07-17T19:04:41Z) Dill, Emily; Palmer, Kristi L.Presentation given at the Public Knowledge Project First Annual Conference, July 11-13, 2007, Vancouver, Canada. Revision of presentation entitled, "Preaching to the Choir?: How Academic Librarians Really Feel About Open Access" ItemI’m Not an Archivist But I Played One For a Year: Lessons For Librarians Who Step Outside Of Their Comfort Zones(Indiana Library Federation, 2008-10-09T17:05:21Z) Dill, EmilyThe author reports on her experiences in a temporary archivist position and the lessons she learned about archives and libraries during this time.
