1Lamb, I. ; Larson, C.: Shining a light on scientific data : building a data catalog to foster data sharing and reuse.
In: Code4Lib journal. Issue 32(2016), [http://journal.code4lib.org].
Abstract: The scientific community's growing eagerness to make research data available to the public provides libraries - with our expertise in metadata and discovery - an interesting new opportunity. This paper details the in-house creation of a "data catalog" which describes datasets ranging from population-level studies like the US Census to small, specialized datasets created by researchers at our own institution. Based on Symfony2 and Solr, the data catalog provides a powerful search interface to help researchers locate the data that can help them, and an administrative interface so librarians can add, edit, and manage metadata elements at will. This paper will outline the successes, failures, and total redos that culminated in the current manifestation of our data catalog.

2Dang, Y. ; Zhang, Y. ; Chen, H. ; Hu, P.J.-H. ; Brown, S.A. ; Larson, C.: Arizona Literature Mapper : an integrated approach to monitor and analyze global bioterrorism research literature.
In: Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. 60(2009) no.7, S.1466-1485.
Abstract: Biomedical research is critical to biodefense, which is drawing increasing attention from governments globally as well as from various research communities. The U.S. government has been closely monitoring and regulating biomedical research activities, particularly those studying or involving bioterrorism agents or diseases. Effective surveillance requires comprehensive understanding of extant biomedical research and timely detection of new developments or emerging trends. The rapid knowledge expansion, technical breakthroughs, and spiraling collaboration networks demand greater support for literature search and sharing, which cannot be effectively supported by conventional literature search mechanisms or systems. In this study, we propose an integrated approach that integrates advanced techniques for content analysis, network analysis, and information visualization. We design and implement Arizona Literature Mapper, a Web-based portal that allows users to gain timely, comprehensive understanding of bioterrorism research, including leading scientists, research groups, institutions as well as insights about current mainstream interests or emerging trends. We conduct two user studies to evaluate Arizona Literature Mapper and include a well-known system for benchmarking purposes. According to our results, Arizona Literature Mapper is significantly more effective for supporting users' search of bioterrorism publications than PubMed. Users consider Arizona Literature Mapper more useful and easier to use than PubMed. Users are also more satisfied with Arizona Literature Mapper and show stronger intentions to use it in the future. Assessments of Arizona Literature Mapper's analysis functions are also positive, as our subjects consider them useful, easy to use, and satisfactory. Our results have important implications that are also discussed in the article.
3Larson, C.A. ; Dickson, L.K.: Developing behavioral reference desk performance standards.
In: RQ. 33(1994) no.3, S.349-257.
Abstract: Discusses in detail the process used by a definitions of department in developing a customized set of behaviorally based reference standards, using goals and objectives as a framework. Standards based on observable behaviour are recommended to allow for objectivity in both peer and supervisory evaluations, to enhance morale. Includes the final reference desk performance standards developed by a medium sized academic library (Nebraska University at Omaha) using the procedure described
4Larson, C.A.: ¬The electronic library and reference.
In: Nebraska Library Association quarterly. 25(1994) no.4, S.54-57.
Abstract: Argues that the comprehensive introduction of electronic information resources into libraries has meant a considerable increase in the workload of reference and public services staff and that the staffing needs of these services have been largely ignored in the shift to electronic resources. Compares the typical amount of work and skill required to answer common user requests for information before and after the introduction of the electronic library, to exemplify the additional work in reference services in the electronic library. Lists the new or extended activities and services being carried out by usually the same number of reference/public services staff, stressing that it is the availability of staff as much as resources which will determine how well libraries survive in the elctronic age
