We hope you will find these, and all, video offerings from CNI’s December meeting useful, and we invite you to share them widely with your colleagues and networks:
The New Normal: Why Libraries are Teaching AI, ML, DH, NLP, VR… (Tim Dennis, University of California, Los Angeles; Indrani Mandal, University of Rhode Island; Vicky Steeves, New York University; Matthew Burton, University of Pittsburgh; Harrison Dekker, University of Rhode Island)
The panel of data-centric librarians and scientists explores the origins of the trend to provide these newer data and digital services and possible future directions to help assert the library’s key role at the center of scholarship.
Toward Collaborative Models for Sustaining Digital Scholarship, (Katrina Fenlon, University of Maryland)
Three digital humanities projects comprising the “Sustaining Digital Community Collections” are presented with the aim of developing context-driven sustainability models, which share responsibility for the long-term care of digital projects among libraries and research communities.
Building a Digital Preservation Strategy Across a Broad University System, (Todd Grappone, University of California, Los Angeles; Edson Smith, University of California, Los Angeles; Mary Elings, University of California, Berkeley)
The University of California (UC) libraries formed a multi-campus working group charged both with developing a practical, shared vision of digital preservation for library content, and with outlining a roadmap to guide the UC libraries in advancing that shared vision. The talk details the group’s activities, methodology, and findings, and describe how they will inform an overall digital preservation strategy within the UC system.
Machine Learning in Research Libraries: A Snapshot of Projects, Opportunities and Challenges (Harish Maringanti, University of Utah; Elizabeth Lorang, University of Nebraska-Lincoln; Zheng (John) Wang, University of Notre Dame)
The presenters share their efforts exploring a range of practical and theoretical questions relating to the intersection of machine learning and libraries and discuss the opportunities and complexities for its use in research libraries.
Previously released from this meeting:
Data Curation Network Update (Lisa Johnston, University of Minnesota; Cynthia Hudson Vitale, Pennsylvania State University; Tim McGeary, Duke University)
Since its launch in 2018 DCN has grown to 10 organizations. This presentation provides an update on DCN activities and discusses how other libraries and organizations can become involved.
Accessibility Task Force: Determining Compliance and Organizing Action (Suzanne Wones, Harvard University; Claire DeMarco, Harvard University)
The presenters share their experience using Agile frameworks to review systems, identify issues, and set priorities for providing actionable deliverables to facilitate remediation of library digital products and ongoing accessibility compliance with Harvard’s digital accessibility policy.
Memory Institutions and Deep Digital Disruption: Beyond the Technical Challenges of Born-digital Preservation, (Carol Mandel, Council on Library and Information Resources; Clifford Lynch, Coalition for Networked Information)
The presenters share the work that each has been undertaking to frame and address the profound changes in collection and stewardship posed by born-digital content
Ready or Not: Here Comes Voice Search, (Twila Camp, University of Oklahoma; Tim Smith, University of Oklahoma)
This talk discusses the impact of voice search, how libraries can prepare and harness its potential, and the caveats for this artificial intelligence-driven technology.
Artificial Intelligence: Impacts and Roles for Libraries, (Keith Webster, Carnegie Mellon University; Jason Griffey, National Information Standards Organization)
Discusses the evolution of artificial intelligence and potential impacts on libraries including opportunities for libraries to support AI education and research.
A Fragmented Landscape, Collaborations Refreshed, and CNI’s 2019-20 Program, Clifford Lynch (CNI) It includes a farewell to Joan Lippincott, CNI’s longtime associate executive director.
