Two new videos from CNI’s December membership meeting have been posted:
Open Educational Resources and the Black Press in America Project, Sayeed Choudhury, Greg Britton, Wendy Queen (Johns Hopkins University)
The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) Press, Project MUSE, and the JHU Sheridan Libraries are developing a novel set of open educational resources through the Black Press in America Project. Led by Professor Kim Gallon of Purdue University, a group of scholars is developing educational resources based on an examination of historical and current African-American newspapers. This video includes a description of the process through which this project formed and a demonstration of prototype capabilities.
From Stock to Flows, davidkremers, Kristin Antelman, Stephen Davison (California Institute of Technology)
Stock is knowledge embedded in media that have a low delta of change, whereas flows, such as cutting-edge research, have a high delta of change. Thanks to the profession’s roots in print collections, librarians associate static and stable with sustainability, and that association with solid objects was translated into early digital library architectures. This presentation describes how the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) Library is moving away from stock to flows. In moving from stock to flows Caltech Library is proposing that it is, in fact, dynamic and mutable architectures that are the most viable for resilient and sustainable services.
