New videos from CNI’s April meeting have been added to our channels:
Collecting, Correlating, Stitching, Enriching: How Commercial Publishers are Creating Value by Profiling Users (David Lacy, Temple University; Cody Hanson, University of Minnesota)
A study of the user tracking mechanisms in place on publisher platforms shows that many publishers are engaged in efforts to profile and identify library users, even without the identifying information that could be provided by libraries through federated authentication.
Alternative RDM Service Models for Smaller Research Libraries (Andrew White, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute)
This presentation considers an alternative to the institutional repositories model established by many large research libraries, to enable smaller research institutions to support research data management (RDM). It also reviews the lessons learned about RDM from a collaborative effort between the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the Elsevier’s Research Data Management Solutions Team using Elsevier’s Data Monitor software.
