As the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) has advanced, one of its major challenges has been the lack of effective, widespread tools for stewarding and syndicating digital content. Recently, the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) awarded $2M to DPLA, Stanford and DuraSpace for the “Hydra-in-a-Box” project to help address this need. Hydra-in-a-Box: Building and Bundling a National Digital Platform provides an in-depth look at the project’s goals, timelines, and early progress.
The Data Science Environment (DSE) program provides resources to help universities develop collaborations between researchers, develop tools in data science (DS), and create new career paths for data scientists. In Organizational Implications of Data Science Environments in Education, Research, and Research Management in Libraries, program members from three partner universities discuss the role of DS in information science, the potential career paths for data scientists in libraries, and the potential amplification of information services (e.g. data curation, institutional repositories, scholarly publishing).
