Video: Using schema.org & Google Site Search with Library Digital Collections

Discovery Turned Inside Out: Using schema.org and Google Site Search with Library Digital Collections, a project briefing session presented at CNI’s spring 2013 member meeting by Will Sexton and Sean Aery of Duke University, is now available on CNI’s video channels:

YouTube:

Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/65144172

Duke University Libraries has begun embedding structured metadata within the source code of the Web pages that display the Libraries’ digital collections, a practice that follows the recommendations of the schema.org initiative, an effort by commercial search engine developers to use structured data to enrich the user’s experience. Duke’s objectives in adopting schema.org relate both to the ways that an exterior service like Google might represent the institution’s materials, and how the organization will offer services to researchers. Usage analysis suggests that systems outside of Duke’s library, largely consisting of the commercial search tools, drive traffic to University collections, and the institution wants to increase its own systems’ interoperability with them. Duke is also piloting a local instance of Google, via its Site Search API, with the potential to enhance and replace the discovery services offered to users. The library sees embedded structured data as a way to extend the impact of the time and resources spent on discovery tools for the content that it manages.

Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/64715382

This presentation introduces the technology vision behind the James B. Hunt Jr. Library, a new, 200,000 square foot building that opened in January 2013 at North Carolina State University (NCSU). The Hunt Library was designed to meet the challenge of re-envisioning library spaces as a platform for research. The library’s goal is to engage researchers across disciplines by deploying broadly applicable technologies such as large-scale visualization, high resolution and 3D imagery, and interactive computing. These core technologies are expressed in physical spaces such as Immersion Theater, Game Lab, Media Production Studios, Teaching & Visualization Lab, and Creativity Studio. Through an inherent ability to reconfigure, re-purpose, and interchange components and infrastructure, the building’s technology itself is designed to be an object of research, a sandbox for emerging technologies and a showcase for cutting edge applications. New segments of the faculty are engaging in deeper ways than ever before, including the launch of several research projects based around Hunt.

Learning Spaces Collaboratory Workshop at UMass Amherst 5/4/13

Dear Colleagues:

UMass Amherst is hosting a term-based Learning Spaces Collaboratory workshop on May 4, 2013. I have been involved with the LSC for a long time, and their workshops are valuable opportunities to learn about the latest trends and to take a team-based approach to learning space planning.

On Saturday May 4th, UMass Amherst is hosting a Learning Spaces Collaboratory Workshop from 8:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M.

Our theme is formal and informal learning spaces for group and team-based learning.

We will be considering what kind of spaces, configurations, furniture, and technologies will best suit team learning at each attendee’s institution. The workshop will be held in the W.E.B. Du Bois Library, in one of our two new Team-Based Learning Classrooms, where participants will actively engage in exercises and experience first hand the room configuration and technologies as our students do. See http://www.pkallsc.org/ for more information.

Webinar: Emerging Technologies

I will be the keynote speaker at a webinar Emerging Technologies IV, on Friday, April 19, sponsored by the South Central Research Library Council of New York State. Details on registration (for a small fee) are available at http://www.scrlc.org/EmergingTechIV

Other speakers/topics include Maurice York describing technologies in the new Hunt Library at NC State University, and sessions on Makerspaces, Gamification, and Cloud Computing.

The webinar is open to all, not just to those in NY State.

Video: Van de Sompel’s Plenary “From the Version of Record to a Version of the Record”

The opening plenary from CNI’s spring 2013 membership meeting by Herbert Van de Sompel, From the Version of Record to a Version of the Record, is now available on CNI’s two video channels:

In the past two decades, scholarly communication has evolved significantly to become mainly digital and network-based. This transition has brought along changes in the nature of the assets that are being communicated. The atomic and static PDF files of the early ejournals days are rapidly being replaced by bundles of dynamic and interdependent resources that are distributed across the Web. These changes present technical challenges regarding information interoperability and long-term preservation, but they also yield broader challenges related to stewardship, access, the delineation of the scholarly record, and the very notion of the version of record. In the same time frame, both the Web and our understanding of its architecture have evolved, which has motivated recent information interoperability efforts – OAI Object Reuse and Exchange, Memento, and ResourceSync – to look at technical challenges from a Web-centric, instead of a repository-centric, perspective, possibly marking a trend to fully embrace the Web as infrastructure for scholarly communication.

Ithaka S+R’s Faculty Survey has tracked attitudes and behaviors of faculty members in US higher education institutions in response to technological and environmental change on a triennial basis since 2000. Its Faculty Survey has helped the community understand changing faculty member needs on key issues such as discovery processes, collecting and collections, the value of the library, and publishing needs. Ithaka S+R’s Deanna Marcum and Roger Schonfeld shared key findings from the Faculty Survey 2012 US for the first time at CNI’s spring 2013, held in San Antonio on April 4-5. Judy Russell, dean of libraries at the University of Florida and a member of the project advisory board, discussed reactions to the findings of the Faculty Survey from the perspective of a campus leader and library director.

The survey report is available at http://www.sr.ithaka.org/research-publications/us-faculty-survey-2012

Meetings on Public Access to Research Outputs, May 14-17, National Academies

Following up on the February 2013 White House Office of Science and Technology Policy Memo on increasing public access th the outputs of federally funded research — both publications and datasets — the National Academies are hosting a pair of meetings (one on publications, on May 14-15, and one on data, on May 16-17). The announcement, which includes a link to background information and registration pages, is below. Note that the meetings are free but advance registration is necessary. The meetings will also be webcast.

*********************

Dear Colleagues,

A group of sponsoring agencies has requested that DBASSE organize two public meetings at which all stakeholder groups who wish to be heard may present their thoughts in brief form.

The topics of these meetings are directly related to the 22 February memorandum from the Office of Science and Technology Policy entitled “Increasing access to the results of federally funded scientific research”.

The purpose of the brief verbal or written contributions is to present ideas to the federal agencies for moving forward in a positive direction toward accomplishing the goals set forth in the OSTP memo.

The announcement of the meetings, with links to the registration site for each one and the list of sponsoring agencies, can be found here: http://sites.nationalacademies.org/DBASSE/CurrentProjects/DBASSE_082378. Both meetings are open and free to the public, but registration is required.

We invite you to attend these meetings, and would also be grateful if you would circulate this information to any contacts you may have who have an interest in Public Access to Federally-Supported Research and Development Data and Publications.

With gratitude for your assistance and very best regards,
