In the fall of 2010, Cornell University began implementing a “reimagined” model for delivering information technology (IT) services on campus, based on a set of recommendations developed with significant input from Bain & Co., a global consulting firm. This presentation includes discussion of the process of creating a much more integrated and collaborative IT organization, and how the university is starting to reap some major benefits from doing things very differently.

The Digital Commons Network (DCN) is a database of open access scholarship from hundreds of universities and colleges that provides access to peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters, dissertations, working papers, conference proceedings, and other original scholarly work. The constantly growing body of publications represents various disciplines and subject areas, and the database features a novel search interface: a multi-colored wheel, where each major discipline is represented by a color, that expands and contracts depending upon the selected subject area.

Copyright in the Digital Era: Building Evidence for Policy, National Academies New Report

The National Academies Board on Science, Technology and Economic Policy (STEP) has just issued a report titled “Copyright in the Digital Era: Building Evidence for Policy”. I’ve not yet read the full report, but based on the summary one area that it highlights is the continuing lack of empirical data to help inform policymaking in this area. (I cannot resist noting that I served on a related study some years ago that produced a report titled “the Digital Dilemma”; that committee, too, was struck by the glaring lack of real evidence to support copyright related policy development; this is a very long-standing problem. It would be wonderful to see some real progress here, and I hope that this new report will help to focus thinking about collecting such data. )

Information on the report (which is available for free downloading) can be found at:

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. Here is some information about the event. Please visit the URL below for registration (for a fee) information.

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.
