ARL Report on Current Models of Digital Scholarly Communication

http://www.arl.org/bm~doc/current-models-report.pdf

From the ARL press release:

"The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) has released the final report from a study that ARL commissioned Ithaka to conduct, Current Models of Digital Scholarly Communication, by Nancy L. Maron and K. Kirby Smith, along with the database of exemplars that the study produced.

In the spring of 2008, ARL engaged Ithaka's Strategic Services Group to conduct an investigation into the range of online resources valued by scholars, paying special attention to those projects that are pushing beyond the boundaries of traditional formats and are considered innovative by the faculty who use them. The networked digital environment has enabled the creation of many new kinds of works, and many of these resources have become essential tools for scholars conducting research, building scholarly networks, and disseminating their ideas and work, but the decentralized distribution of these new-model works has made it difficult to fully appreciate their scope and number."

Delivering the Best Start: a guide to early years libraries
Carolynn Rankin and Avril Brock

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is now statutory in the UK for children from birth to five years, and other countries are experiencing similar developments; early years librarians, teachers, nursery nurses, playgroup leaders and childminders all require knowledge of how to promote and encourage communication, language and literary skills. Parental reading with young children is clearly vitally important, and libraries are uniquely placed to support the development of literacy skills in pre-school children.

This book provides an understanding of how children develop such skills through enjoyable and meaningful learning experiences, and is a pioneering practical guide for library and information professionals involved in planning and delivering services in early years libraries. Drawing on the authors' underpinning contemporary research and examples from current best practice, it will equip practitioners with a broad range of knowledge and ideas. Key areas covered include:

* take them to the library: the role of the early years professional
* people and partnerships: working across interdisciplinary boundaries, and how to involve parents and carers
* buildings, design and space: the children's libraries of the future
* resources for early years libraries: books, toys and other delights
* reaching your audience: the librarian's role
* planning and organizing: projects and reading sessions.

User-friendly and accessible, each chapter is clearly structured and sets outs the key issues for practitioners, scenarios offering insights into these, and practical ideas and resources for service provision. The book also includes case studies of successful pre-school library initiatives in a variety of global settings, useful information about relevant organizations, and links to helpful websites.

This valuable text is essential reading for all library and information professionals working with young children - whether those with responsibility for the strategic planning of services, or those involved in delivering them at community level. Essential for students of library and information studies or childhood studies, and practitioners undertaking NVQ qualifications, it also provides a sound background in early years literacy and provision for a range of local authority practitioners, such as nursery teachers and Children's Centre managers.

Press Release

Digital Repository Federation (Japan) and DRIVER sign Memorandum of
Understanding

3 December 2008

 

Sapporo, Japan and Goettingen, Germany - As part of the SPARC Digital
Repositories Meeting 2008 held in Baltimore Maryland from 17-18 November
2008, DRF (Japan) and DRIVER have agreed to work closely together on
promoting federated repository infrastructures, signing a Memorandum of
Understanding to take this collaboration forward.

DRIVER is a joint initiative of European stakeholders, co-financed by
the European Commission, setting up a technical infrastructure for
digital repositories and facilitating the building of an umbrella
organisation for digital repositories. DRIVER relies on research
libraries for the sustainable operation of repositories and provision of
high quality content through digital repositories.

Digital Repository Federation (DRF) is a federation consisting of 86
universities and research institutes which aims to promote Open Access
and Institutional Repository development in Japan. Under the auspices of
the National Institute of Informatics (NII), Tokyo, DRF is a
collaborative program for institutional repositories, based on one of
the research and development projects of the national framework of Cyber
Science Infrastructure (CSI).

DRF and DRIVER share the vision that the Open Access movement in Europe
and in Japan contribute to better scholarly communication in the world;
and that each should contribute actively and cooperatively to a global,
interoperable, trusted and long-term data and service infrastructure
based on Open Access digital repositories.

Collaboration between DRF (Japan) and DRIVER is framed by their joint
support for an Open Access model for repositories in research and higher
education institutions. They present a common strategy to enable
research libraries - pressed to improve scholarly communication by
establishing digital repositories - to expose institutional research
outputs to the world. Networks of individual repositories and
overarching information services for aggregation, retrieval, sharing and
re-use are being built on the basis of institutional, national and
regional location, or by subject areas.

Norbert Lossau, Scientific Technical Co-ordinator of DRIVER, said 'The
collaboration between the organizational structures of both DRIVER and
DRF forms the nucleus of federated repository development of a global,
interoperable, trusted and long-term repository infrastructure. We are
very pleased to formalize our relationship by signing this Memorandum of
Understanding.'

Masaaki Hemmi, the Director of DRF, said 'No doubt the coalition of DRF
and DRIVER will lead to the best and widest dissemination of joint
enterprises between researchers, who turn out scholarly fruits, and
librarians, who manage digital repositories in every corner of the
world. Nothing pleases me more than the start of our collaborative
activities.'

Digitisation cultural heritage collections comes closer

Subject: [IFLA-L] PRESS RELEASE: Digitisation cultural heritage collections comes closer

Digitisation of heritage collections comes closer
Unique agreement between libraries and right holders

Dutch libraries, archives, and museums recently reached agreement with right holders on the digitisation and accessibility of their heritage collections. The organisations representing the libraries (FOBID) and the right holders (VOI©E) reached agreement within the Digiti©E Committee (Digitisation of Cultural Heritage) that was set up when a Declaration of Intent was signed at the opening of Amsterdam World Book Capital in April 2008. The agreement is a major breakthrough in the discussion regarding the copyright aspects of digitising collections held by libraries and archives.

As far as is known, this is the first agreement of this type anywhere in the world between libraries and right holders. There is concern in many other countries too regarding how to deal with the rights of right holders who cannot be traced, i.e. the holders of rights in "orphan works". If the arrangement that has now been accepted in the Netherlands is imitated in other European countries, it will have an enormous effect on the availability of recent works in the "Europeana" digital library.

Right holders
Libraries and archives manage large collections that are important from the cultural and historical perspective. The development of digital technology basically allows those collections to be made available to the general public via the Internet. The European Commission recently launched the "Europeana" digital library, which is hosted by the National Library of the Netherlands in The Hague. The vast majority of the documents that have so far been digitised are from before the 20th century. The main reason for this limitation is that more recent works are still protected by copyright, meaning that they can only be digitised and distributed with the consent of the right holders. Tracing the right owner is a time-consuming and consequently costly process. Moreover, it often proves impossible to actually find the right owner, and so many libraries simply do not bother to try.

In their Declaration of Intent signed last April, the parties already noted that they recognised this problem and wished to cooperate in solving it; this is provided for in the recent agreement.

Essence
The essence of the agreement is that the libraries that are represented receive permission, on certain conditions, from virtually all right holders to digitise their collections and make them publically available on their own premises for teaching or research purposes. The works concerned must be part of the Dutch cultural heritage and no longer commercially available. The libraries do not need to pay the right holders as long as the works are only made available on their own premises.

Separate consent is required, however, if the digitised works are made more widely available, for example by means of remote access or via the Internet. In that case, an agreed payment must be made; agreements in principle can be made regarding payment by the Digiti©E committee. Even then, the library will not need to go in search of the right holders because this will be done by collecting societies such as Lira and Pictoright.

The organisations representing right holders will shortly be setting up a Registration Centre for digitisation where libraries and archives can register proposed projects and get in touch with right holders regarding how they should be implemented.

Individual right holders can naturally still object to their work being digitised and made accessible. In that case, the libraries and archives concerned are required to cease making the works accessible; in practice, very few titleholders actually object.

 

Kees Holierhoek, the chairman of the Lira copyright holders' organisation and of the digital right holders working party, has this to say about the new agreement: "I'm very pleased about this agreement. It's important for us that copyright should be respected, and that has been done in this case. At the same time, the agreement has done away with a major obstacle to making texts and photos accessible. Authors, freelance journalists, photographers, and publishers will all have a veto right if they do not wish to participate. If they do wish to participate, they can claim payment if their material is made accessible outside the institution's own premises."

Martin Bossenbroek, the acting General Director of the National Library of the Netherlands, says: "This agreement is a real breakthrough. It's extremely good news for libraries like the National Library of the Netherlands whose core task is to manage nationally important heritage collections and make them available. The agreement regulates digitisation and the availability of digitised collections on our own premises. But that is only the first step, because we naturally want to also make the digitised collections available online. I think the real benefit of this agreement is that it shows how all the various interested parties understand one another's positions and arguments. That constructive attitude will also make it possible to arrive at good follow-up arrangements for provision of material on the Internet."

PRESS RELEASE: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) incorporated in Singapore

Singapore, January 2009

The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) has completed the legal
steps for incorporation as a public, not-for-profit Company limited
by Guarantee in Singapore. The founding members of the new legal
entity are the National Library Board Singapore and the National
Library of Finland. The other DCMI Affiliates, the Joint Information
Systems Commission (JISC) in the UK, the National Library, National
Archives and the State Services Commission of New Zealand and the
National Library of Korea, will become Members in the weeks ahead.

The incorporation as an independent entity is another step from
DCMI's origins as an informal network of experts who came together
in 1995 with the objective to define a core set of descriptors to
enable discovery of Web resources, towards the establishment of a
professional and sustainable organization that develops, maintains and
promotes the Dublin Core metadata terms and associated documentation
for a global audience.

As an independently incorporated entity, DCMI will continue its work
as an open, consensus-based organization with open participation and
with free and unrestricted availability of its documentation.

Makx Dekkers, who will continue in his role as Managing Director of
DCMI Ltd., says: "We are excited to enter into a new era as an
independent entity. DCMI was hosted by OCLC until last year. OCLC's
support over the years has enabled DCMI to reach maturity, and for
that we are very grateful to OCLC. The incorporation of DCMI as an
independent legal entity underlines once more the independence that
has always been one of our main characteristics. With our Members
and Partners we are looking forward to continuing and extending our
support for the global metadata community."

As part of a Memorandum of Understanding between DCMI and the National
Library Board Singapore, DCMI will have its operating address at NLB,
100 Victoria Street #14-01, 188064 Singapore.

The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative Limited (DCMI) is an open
organization engaged in the development of interoperable online
metadata standards that support a broad range of purposes and business
models. DCMI's objectives are to develop and maintain international
standards for describing resources; to support a worldwide community
of users and developers; and to promote widespread use of Dublin Core
solutions.  DCMI's activities include  work on architecture and
modeling, discussions and collaborative work in DCMI Communities and
DCMI Task Groups, annual conferences and workshops, standards liaison,
and educational efforts to promote widespread acceptance of metadata
standards and practices.

Subject: Dublin Core Metadata Initiative Science and Metadata Community (SAM)

Apologies for any duplication:

We are pleased to introduce the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative Science and Metadata 
Community, and welcome participation from individuals and organizations interested in all 
aspects of metadata relating to scientific data.

Funders of scientific research are increasingly attentive to the management of scientific 
data so that the full value of research investments can be realized and preserved.  Doing 
so requires attention to the description and structure of datasets and vocabularies to 
support data preservation, reuse, and repurposing.

The DCMI Science and Metadata Community is a forum for individuals and organizations to 
exchange information and knowledge about metadata describing scientific data.  The 
Community focuses on metadata challenges specific to scientific data curation, and 
solutions that will benefit from the architecture and global reach of the Dublin Core 
Metadata Initiative.

These challenges include:
- Canonical identification of datasets, critical for establishing provenance, auditing 
value and use, and attracting social-networking attention that will enhance their value.
- Better description of data and vocabularies, such that potential users may more easily 
determine suitability for use and repurposing, as well as ancillary applications such as 
rendering and interpretation.
- Design and declaration of schemas to support reuse.

An initial deliverable of the group includes a survey of existing standards and metadata 
elements used to describe datasets, which will form the basis for community discussion 
and a work agenda to be initiated at DC-2009.

The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) is an open organization engaged in the 
development of interoperable online metadata standards that support a broad range of 
purposes and business models.  To learn more, see: http://dublincore.org/.

To learn more about the Science and Metadata community, or to become involved:
- visit the community website at:  http://dublincore.org/groups/sam/ 
- join the community electronic mailing list at:  
http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi-bin/wa.exe?SUBED1=dc-science&A=1

An open workshop and meeting will be held at the 2009 International Conference on Dublin 
Core and Metadata Applications, "Semantic Interoperability of Linked Data," which will 
be held in Seoul, Korea (http://www.dc2009.kr/), 12-16, October, 2009.  We encourage 
community participation online via the mailing list for those who cannot attend.

Please feel free to forward this announcement.

Editor's choice

    

The effective and efficient management of a library service requires maximizing return on investment, not necessarily in a commercial sense, but by being certain that budget allocations and staff deployment are targeted to areas that will deliver value to library customers. Consequently, it is important to know what services customers value to ensure that all decision making is based on data and not assumptions. But do we really know what library customers want? This paper endeavours to provide the answers. (From Library Management, Vol. 29 No. 6/7).


Are there common academic library customer values?

Horizon Report 2009 Profiles Six Key Emerging Technologies for Higher Education

Subject: [IFLA-L] Horizon Report 2009 Profiles Six Key Emerging Technologies for Higher Education

Colleagues/

Each year, the Horizon Report describes six areas of emerging technology that will have significant impact on higher education within three adoption horizons over the next one to five years. "Campus leaders and practitioners alike use the report as a springboard for discussion around emerging technology," noted Larry Johnson, chief executive officer of the NMC. "Over the six years that the report has been published, the impact on technology planning and discussions on campuses has been substantial. Now with six years of data to consider, we continue to look back at the overarching trends over time. What we see is that there are several long-term, conceptual themes that have affected, and continue to affect, the practice of teaching and learning in profound ways." More than 75,000 copies of the 2008 Horizon Report were distributed in print and electronically last year.

According to EDUCAUSE President Diana Oblinger, "Learning, discovery, and creative expression are fundamental to higher education. Technology can help in each of those areas. But our community wants to know which emerging technologies are best for what uses. And, what examples demonstrate their potential? The Horizon Report addresses those critical questions."

In defining the six selected areas for 2009 - mobile devices, cloud computing, geo-everything, the personal web, semantic-aware applications, and smart objects - the project tapped into an ongoing discussion among knowledgeable individuals in business, industry, and education, as well as published resources, current research and practice, and the expertise of the NMC and ELI communities. The Horizon Project's Advisory Board probes current trends and challenges in higher education, explores possible topics for the report, and ultimately selects the technologies to be profiled.

IFLA Chinese Language Centre established at the National Library of China, Beijing

Subject: [IFLA-L] IFLA Chinese Language Centre established!


IFLA Chinese Language Centre established at the National Library of China, Beijing

In February 2009 the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and the National Library of China (NLC) in Beijing signed a cooperation agreement by which NLC received a status of IFLA Chinese Language Centre. It can now be seen as a permanent representative of IFLA/HQ for the Chinese speaking community, as well as the other way around: it is hoped that IFLA/HQ will get improved access to Chinese speaking library and information professionals.
 The IFLA Chinese Language Centre will promote IFLA, support IFLA's Asia and Oceania Section as well as other relevant IFLA professional bodies and liaise with IFLA/HQ. Among the priorities of the Centre are: 

  1. Active membership recruitment. This will be conducted with the help of national or other association members and/or national libraries. Institutions and associations (including specialist and state associations) within the Chinese language community   will be actively encouraged to join IFLA.
  2. (Co-) organising regional IFLA events. These will be co-organised with IFLA/HQ,  and/or with IFLA professional units (Sections and Core Activities). This activity includes seeking sources for funding of IFLA projects.
  3. Seek involvement in local or regional professional events to gain support within the Chinese language community, trying to get IFLA "branding" of local or regional events.
  4. Contribute to more effective communication within the Chinese language community and with the IFLA bodies involved. These activities include the publication of newsletters, translations of key IFLA documents and publications and the production of a Chinese translation of IFLA Express during IFLA's annual congresses.
  5. Representing IFLA in the Chinese language community, in a pursuit to make IFLA more visible in that community, promoting IFLA goals, principles and core values.
  6. Translation of key IFLA documents, guidelines, press-releases, papers prepared for the Assembly Meetings etc.

Libraries and Information Services Towards the Attainment of
the UN Millennium Development Goals

 

The United Nations Millennium declarations of 2002 set eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to be achieved by 2015.
The high poverty levels in most African countries make many aware that it is no longer up to the governments alone to find ways of abetting it, but that other organizations need to join the fight.
Libraries are well placed to contribute to the development process in supporting it by providing relevant, up to date and reliable information.
The papers presented in this publication address the question how African libraries and information professionals seek to make themselves relevant to national development.
All of them focus on how libraries and information centres could contribute to the attainment of these MDGs.
The papers are a selection of the proceedings of the Eighteenth Standing Conference of East, Central and Southern Africa Library and Information Associations (SCECSAL) held in Lusaka, Zambia,
from 15th - 18th July 2008.

IFLA vouchers

Subject: [IFLA-L] Announcement-Update IFLA vouchers

International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions

Announcement/Updates: IFLA vouchers

  1. Due to the large number of British Library issued IFLA vouchers still in circulation (over 22,000 vouchers) IFLA has decided to cancel the retirement of these vouchers. All IFLA vouchers in circulation are valid.
  2. Newly issued vouchers carry a machine readable barcode sticker on the back. This barcode system will enable IFLA to streamline the order-redemption-restock-order circle. For you this means faster delivery time of orders and faster processing of redemptions. The IFLA vouchers will remain the same user friendly, no-expiration date system that you are accustomed to. Once a voucher is redeemed a barcode sticker will be placed on it before it is re-sold. It will take years to receive all of the current stock in circulation and barcode them. YOUR VOUCHERS ARE VALID WITH OR WITHOUT BARCODES!
  3. The IFLA voucher program is growing in success and users. Currently I am running about 2 months behind on processing redemption payments. I am working to remedy this backlog as fast as possible.

IMLS Publishes FY 2007 State Library Agency Report
Washington, DC-The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) issued its second library statistics report on state library agencies in the 50 states and the District of Columbia for state fiscal year (FY) 2007. The State Library Agency Report for FY 2007 includes a wide array of information on topics such as libraries' Internet access and electronic services, collections, staff, and revenue. The survey provides state and federal policymakers, researchers, and other interested users information on the range of roles played by state library agencies and the financial, human, and informational resources invested in the agencies' work.
"State library agencies provide a vast amount of high-quality services to the public, which the report deftly captures. It is a critically important tool for decision makers who want to support and advance the library services that are important to us all," said Anne-Imelda M. Radice, IMLS Director.
This report presents selected findings and background information about the survey. Findings in FY 2007 include the following:
-       The number of book and serial volumes held by state library agencies totaled 24.1 million.
-       There were 1.6 million visits to state library agencies.
-       All state library agencies facilitated library access to the Internet.
-       The total number of budgeted full-time-equivalent (FTE) positions in state library agencies was 3,500 as of October 1, 2007.
-       State library agencies reported total expenditures of $1.2 billion.
-       State library agencies reported total revenue of $1.2 billion.
-       All state libraries agencies provided administration of IMLS funding through the Grants to States program; library statistics; library planning, evaluation, and research; and review of technology plans for the E-rate telecommunications discount program.
The body of this report is composed of tables providing an overview of state library agencies during the 2007 fiscal year. The tables present data on seven main topics:
1. Collections: describes state library holdings of materials in various formats.
2. Service Transactions: characterizes library use, such as circulation and reference transactions.
3. Internet Access and Electronic Services: describes the efforts of agencies to facilitate internet access among libraries in their states, as well as the availability of statewide electronic services, information, and networks.
4. Staffing and Public Service Hours: staffing levels and the functions performed by employees of state library agencies, as well as the number of public service hours during a typical week.
5. Expenditures: describes how state library funds are expended.
6. Revenue: identifies various sources of revenue.
7. Services to Libraries and Cooperatives: identifies activities and programs that support public, academic, school, special libraries, and library cooperatives.

The list of respondents for this survey is based on the list that the Chief Officers of State Library Agencies (COSLA) maintains of state library agencies. The FY 2007 survey is the 14th in the StLA series. The data upon which this report is based are final. The survey's 100 percent response rate results from the cooperative effort between, IMLS, COSLA, and the U.S. Census Bureau.

Information Literacy Education: A Process Approach. Professionalising the Pedagogical Role of Academic Libraries

Dr Maria-Carme Torras, University of Bergen
Tove Pemmer Saetre, Bergen University College

Summary
From a traditional role of information gatekeepers, librarians have been challenged to become pedagogues who teach and counsel students in information literacy. The aim of this book is to professionalise the educational role of academic libraries. It helps information professionals design and carry out information literacy education programmes. The book puts forward a process-oriented approach to information literacy user education. Practical ways are outlined in which librarians' pedagogical involvement in higher education can be enhanced.
By applying two general didactic models, the book meets the information professionals' needs to make theoretically founded and independent choices in their teaching and supervisory practices as well as critically reflecting on them. Examples of best and less good practice are drawn upon to provide scenarios for reflection which can inspire and enrich the information professional's work.

Key Features

  • Provides the information professional with a practical framework to get started on a new user education programme for information literacy or to redesign an existing one.
  • Puts forward a model of user education which contextualises information search and use within the framework of academic writing.
  • Helps the academic library, as a professional community, to build up a common educational platform for information literacy which will enhance its educational role in the higher education landscape.
  • Strategically makes information literacy education more attractive to students and faculty.
  • Shows how the information professional can cater for different target groups and their specific needs.
  • Brings together a top-down and a bottom-up perspective to user education.

The Authors
Dr. Maria-Carme Torras i Calvo is a senior academic librarian at the University of Bergen Library. She is the head of the library teaching board. She is a standing committee member of the IFLA Section for Information Literacy. Tove Pemmer Sætre is the library director at Bergen University College, Norway. She has published and lectured in pedagogy and librarianship internationally. She has been chair of the IFLA Section of School Libraries and Resource Centres 2003- 2005.

[Note: Cross posted to imagelib, mcn-l, diglib, asis-l]

Dear Digital Collections Professionals:

The UCLA Library and the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative (CDLI)
began working together in 2007 to ensure long-term digital storage and
preservation of and enhanced access to digital content offered through
the CDLI Web site (http://cdli.ucla.edu/). This collaboration has been
supported in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services
(IMLS).

As part of the effort to enhance access to this digital collection, we
have launched a short survey to better the current strengths and
weaknesses of the CDLI Web site. We are interested in learning about
both the current audience of the Web site as well as the potential
audience.

If you are interested in the CDLI Web site, please assist us by
completing a short survey available at http://tinyurl.com/bzfhjc. The
survey is 10 short questions and takes approximately 10-15 minutes.

We appreciate your help as we work to improve the CDLI Web site. If you
have any comments, questions or concerns, please contact UCLA Librarian
Sharon Shafer at sshafer [at] library.ucla.edu.

Best regards,

Library of Congress Announces Study of Bibliographic Record Publication

Library of Congress Announces Study of Bibliographic Record Publication

The Library of Congress today announced the next phase of its
investigation into the creation and distribution of bibliographic data
in U.S. and Canadian libraries. The Library has commissioned a study to
research and describe the current marketplace for cataloging records in
the MARC format, with primary focus on the economics of current
practices, including existing incentives and barriers to both
contribution and availability. The study will be carried out by R2
Consulting LLC of Contoocook, N.H.

The Library has recognized that its role as a producer of bibliographic
data is changing and that other libraries have options as they consider
sources for cataloging records. The conclusions outlined in a report
issued last year, "On the Record: Report of the Library of Congress
Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control," indicate that
cataloging activity must be shared more broadly and equitably among all
libraries. Before the Library considers any changes to its cataloging
commitments or priorities, however, it is vital to understand the extent
to which other libraries rely on its contributions. The study will
examine cataloging production and practice across all library types,
including cooperative activity through OCLC, the Program for Cooperative
Cataloging (PCC), the National Library of Medicine, the National
Agricultural Library, library consortia, and other shared cataloging
initiatives.

Under the general direction of Deanna Marcum, Associate Librarian for
Library Services at the Library of Congress, R2 will develop a
description of the current economic model and will determine the extent
of library participation in and reliance on existing structures and
organizations. The study will show the degree to which sources other
than the Library of Congress are supplying quality records in
economically sufficient quantities, or whether most libraries use
records created by the Library. This project is oriented toward
fact-finding and reporting rather than solutions, and it is intended to
produce a snapshot of the existing market. The project is scheduled for
completion by June 30, 2009, with a written report and visual
representation of the existing marketplace. Progress reports, along with
various other data collection and communication tools, will be made
available via the R2 Web site at www.r2consulting.org and the
Bibliographic Control Working Group site at
www.loc.gov/bibliographic-future/.

"I am very optimistic that the project will shed new light on the
current cataloging supply and distribution environment," Marcum said,
"in such a way that future opportunities and challenges can be promptly
identified and evaluated. I am hopeful that librarians and all other
participants in the distribution chain will be as forthcoming as
possible during the investigative process. Our intention is to
understand as fully as possible both the economic and workflow
implications for the U.S. and Canadian marketplace prior to implementing
any changes at the Library."

The Library of Congress, the nation's oldest federal cultural
institution, is the world's preeminent reservoir of knowledge, providing
unparalleled integrated resources to Congress and the American people.
Founded in 1800, the Library seeks to further human understanding and
wisdom by providing access to knowledge through its magnificent
collections, which bring to bear the world's knowledge in almost all of
the world's languages and America's private sector intellectual and
cultural creativity in almost all formats. Many of the Library's rich
resources and treasures may also be accessed through the Library's Web
sites www.loc.gov and myLOC.gov.

R2 Consulting LLC was founded in 2000 by partners Rick Lugg and Ruth
Fischer and specializes in selection-to-access workflow analysis and
organizational redesign of academic libraries. The firm also
participated in the "Economics and Organization of Bibliographic Data"
session of the Library of Congress Working Group on the Future of
Bibliographic Control. R2's primary professional interest is to help
library organizations improve performance and adapt to the changing
information environment.

MyLanguage, an internet portal designed to deliver information and back-up library services with innovative electronic techniques was named  winner of the Microsoft Information Technology category of  the 2008 National Multicultural Marketing Awards in Sydney. Traditionally Australian library services have been available in only 49 languages whereas there are 212 languages in active use in the community.

The libraries of each state and territory set out to meet that challenge collectively and came up with the MyLanguage portal whose vision is to:

  • Enhance, and facilitate the use of the internet by and for culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
  • Empower newly arrived migrants, emerging communities and minority language communities to use online technologies.
  • And, to enrich Australia's  linguistic and cultural cyberspace

Apart from the traditional marketing tools of banners and bookmarks, the Libraries let their campaigning loose on YouTube, offering 30 native speakers of languages other than English the chance to be video stars while promoting MyLangauge to the world.

Congratulating the Libraries collective on the award, the Chair of the Community Relations Commission, Stepan Kerkyasharian said, "This is not just about a good idea or a good solution it is also about clever marketing techniques that actually uses the resources of cultural diversity to promote a service that is meeting diversity needs."

"Look, this is a marvellous gateway to information. Within a couple of simple clicks you have access to almost unlimited information, superbly catalogued in which ever language you want to use.  This gives all Australians instant access to whatever information they need in day to day life. This is all about ensuring that technology doesn't further restrict people of non-English speaking background from finding information and getting access to resources and, conversely, that it actually improves their access."

"This project is right in line with the original aim of the National Multicultural Marketing Awards to alert public servants to their responsibility and obligation to communicate their services to each member of the community and to ensure that those services were also appropriate to those same people. The great libraries of the states and territories of Australia have done just that. Well done!" Mr Kerkyasharian said.

You can visit the website to find online information in more than 60 languages at www.mylanguage.gov.au

NIH Public Access Policy

-----Original Message-----
From: Open Lib/Info Sci Education Forum [mailto:JESSE@LISTSERV.UTK.EDU] On Behalf Of Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

To: JESSE@LISTSERV.UTK.EDU
Subject: Contact House Judiciary Committee Members to Save the NIH Public Access Policy

The Fair Copyright in Research Works Act, H.R. 801,
(http://tinyurl.com/d2e9eo) would repeal the NIH Public
Access Policy and prevent other federal agencies from
enacting similar open access policies (see the Alliance for
Taxpayer Access call to action, http://tinyurl.com/bjb2pg).

Ten associations and advocacy groups, including AALL, ACRL,
ALA, ARL, and GWLA, have sent a letter to House Judiciary
Committee members opposing the bill
(http://tinyurl.com/bf5onu). Here's an excerpt:

"The NIH Public Access Policy advances science, improves
access by the public to federally funded research, provides
for effective archiving strategies for these resources, and
ensures accountability of our federal investment. Given the
proven success of the revised NIH Public Access Policy and
the promise of public access to federally funded research,
we firmly oppose H.R.801 and ask that you do the same."

If you want to oppose the bill and support the NIH Public
Access policy and open access, you should contact members of
the House Judiciary Committee and your Representative
immediately by letter, e-mail, fax, or phone. If a Judiciary
Committee member is in your district, your opposition will
have considerably more impact.

You can find a list of House Judiciary Committee members at
the below DigitalKoans posting that includes each Judiciary
Committee member's Web site, e-mail address/e-mail form
URL, telephone number, and fax number. It also includes the
text of the Alliance for Taxpayer Access' draft letter that
can be modified to send to Committee members.

Open Access Week declared for 2009
Popular global event extended over one week, October 19 – 23
Washington, DC - March 5, 2009 - To accommodate widespread global interest in the movement toward Open Access to scholarly research results, October 19 - 23, 2009 will mark the first international Open Access Week. The now-annual event, expanded from one day to a full week, presents an opportunity to broaden awareness and understanding of Open Access to research, including access policies from all types of research funders, within the international higher education community and the general public.
Open Access Week builds on the momentum generated by the 120 campuses in 27 countries that celebrated Open Access Day in 2008. Event organizers SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing & Academic Resources Coalition), the Public Library of Science (PLoS), and Students for FreeCulture welcome key new contributors, who will help to enhance and expand the global reach of this popular event in 2009: eIFL.net (Electronic Information for Libraries), OASIS (the Open Access Scholarly Information Sourcebook); and the Open Access Directory (OAD).
"I'm participating in Open Access Week again this year because I want to shed light on the tremendous potential of Open Access," said Allyson Mower, Scholarly Communications & Copyright Librarian for the University of Utah's Marriott Library. "People searching for information usually consume whatever is readily available. Open Access ensures that quality information is at people's fingertips."
"eIFL.net works to make intellectual outputs of developing and transitional countries more visible and more easily accessible," added Rima Kupryte, Director of eIFL.net. "We believe that Open Access contributes to improved education, teaching, and research, and accelerates innovations and economical developments in these countries.  Open Access Week is a great opportunity to promote Open Access globally."
This year's program will highlight educational resources on Open Access that local hosts can use to customize their own programs to suit local audiences and time zones. OASIS will serve as the centerpiece of the 2009 program, delivering resources for every constituency and every awareness level. The Open Access Directory will again provide an index of participants on five continents, as well as their growing clearinghouse for all OA resources. Through the collaborative functionality of the two initiatives, OA videos, briefing papers, podcasts, slideshows, posters and other informative tools will be drawn from all over the Web to be highlighted during Open Access Week.
The organizers will also work with registrants to develop a variety of sample program tracks, such as "Administrators' introduction to campus open-access policies and funds," "OA 101," and "Complying with the NIH public access policy" that take full advantage of available tools. Participants are invited to adapt these resources for local use, and to mark Open Access Week by hosting an event, distributing literature, blogging -- or even just wearing an Open Access t-shirt.
"After the success of last year's Open Access Day, we're delighted to be co-organizing the first ever Open Access Week with our fellow collaborators, again in conjunction with the anniversary of one of our flagship journals," said Peter Jerram, CEO for the Public Library of Science. "We ask our supporters to celebrate the fifth anniversary of PLoS Medicine by spreading the word about Open Access and getting involved in the week."
"There's no more certain sign of the momentum behind Open Access to research than an annual, global celebration of this scale," added Heather Joseph, Executive Director of SPARC. "Occasions like this are the best possible way to attract attention from busy faculty members and administrators, and to demonstrate the widespread appeal of Open Access. It's SPARC's pleasure to be working with our partners to realize the event once again this year."

Portal of Francophone national digital libraries launches
<http://www.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/2008/11/portal-of-francophone-national-d
igital.html>
Saturday, November 01, 2008

The Réseau francophone des bibliothèques nationales numériques
<http://www.rfbnn.org/> [Francophone Network of National Digital Libraries]
has launched its portal. See the October 18, 2008 press release
<http://www.rfbnn.org/html/Documents/Cp_39_08_RFBNN.pdf> (in French).
(Thanks to Olivier Charbonneau <http://www.culturelibre.ca/?p=1211> .) A
rough translation of excerpts from the press release:

...The network makes real the double mission of long-term
preservation and wide diffusion of the documentary heritage of
French-speaking areas. The design and the execution of the portal were
entrusted to the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec
<http://www.banq.qc.ca/> . ...

Five principles guide the libraries' activities:

* non-exclusive access to the digital collections for search
engines;
* guarantee of gratis access to the public for public domain
documents;
* maintaining the digital files in the public domain and
guarantee of their long-term preservation;
* multilingual access to the collections;
* certification by the national libraries of the entirety and
the authenticity of the documents put online.

This unique project of preservation and adding value to a heritage
that is often poorly accessible and sometimes threatened with disappearance
is developed with the active assistance of the Organisation internationale
de la Francophonie <http://www.francophonie.org/> ...

[At the portal], Web users will thus have the opportunity to consult
newspapers, journals, books, and maps, as well as digitized archives from
the collections of ten or so institutions from French-speaking places ...

See also the recent French government report
<http://www.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/2008/10/french-government-report-on-digi

/Gerry

674 students from Salzburg participated in the study that was conducted by the eTheory Research Group (University of Salzburg, ICT&S Center). 88.3% of the respondents use studiVZ, 39.5% Facebook, 15.9% MySpace, 9.0% Xing, 7.4% Lokalisten. Each of 61 other social networking sites (SNS) is used by less than 1%. [snip]

59.1% of the respondents see the maintenance of social contacts as the biggest advantage of SNS, 55.7% say that economic and political surveillance is the greatest risk. [snip]

81.8% of the respondents have little knowledge about concrete data surveillance in Europe (e.g. the Data Retention Directive or the Austrian Security Police Act). But 67.4% have a critical standpoint towards surveillance. 88.7% of the studiVZ users have good or very good knowledge about what happens with their data on the platform. The same is true for only 35.9% of Facebook users and 22.6% of MySpace users. [snip]

The study recommends that citizens see commercial Internet platforms that store and evaluate personal data generally critically and that by establishing special consumer protection websites it could be documented in the public, which rights in dealing with personal data such platforms obtain by their terms of use and their privacy terms.

Project Underway To Convert High Energy Physics Literature To Open Access
<http://www.ip-watch.org/weblog/index.php?p=1388>
By Catherine Saez, 5 January 2009

As rising prices of top-quality journals in high-energy physics jeopardise
researchers' access to essential peer-reviewed articles, leading physicists
have put forward an alternative model for open access publishing.

Access to past and current research reports is of vital importance for
researchers according to the high-energy physics (HEP) community, and as
libraries have had to cancel costly subscriptions worldwide, an initiative
led by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) aims to gather
global resources to make that research openly accessible.

The community pioneered open access through "repositories" containing
collections of pre-prints freely accessible on the internet. Those
repositories are electronic databases where articles describing scientific
results are made available by the authors prior to their formal publication
in peer-reviewed journals.

The world's first pre-print repository was established at the European
Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) in the late 1950s. It included
working papers and reports submitted to CERN by authors from institutions
across the world, CERN Director General Robert Aymar said in a scholarly
communication to be published in early 2009 in the European Review.

Repositories facilitate access to research articles before their
publication, thus enabling new results to influence current research as soon
as the article is released.

Notable examples of repositories in HEP are the CERN Document Server, the
SPIRES database run by the Stanford linear Accelerator Center
<http://www.slac.stanford.edu/spires/about/> since the late 1960s as a
database of particle physics literature, and arXiv.org <http://arxiv.org/> ,
started in 1991 in Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, now run
from Cornell University.

However, peer-review, which verifies the quality of an article submitted for
publication, is not performed in repositories. Peer-review is organised by
publishers and carried out by specialists in the field. This process
provides a platform for the evaluation and career evolution of scientists
and is useful to measure the quality and productivity of research groups and
institutes.

High-quality HEP journals are essential for the community, because the
journals provide the peer-review service, but this service is costly. The
rising cost of subscriptions has put dire financial pressure on libraries,
forcing them to cancel subscriptions, said Jens Vigen, head of the
Scientific Information Service at CERN. The present subscription model is
not sustainable and the community needs a new model to contain costs and
achieve open access.

Meet SCOAP3

A new model for open access publishing has emerged, aiming to convert the
entire body of HEP literature to open access. The publisher's subscription
income from multiple institutions would be replaced by income from a single
financial partner: the Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in
Particle Physics <http://www.scoap3.org/whoisscoap3.html> (SCOAP3).

SCOAP3 is a consortium composed of high-energy physics funding agencies,
high-energy physics laboratories and leading national and international
libraries and library consortia.

According to the model, partners from all countries contributing to HEP
literature would become members of the consortium. "Each country should be
responsible for the funding of the peer review corresponding to their
scientific output" said Vigen. "And the ultimate goal is to draw everybody
into the SCOAP3 system." The transition to open access will be facilitated
by the fact that only six peer-reviewed journals publish the majority of HEP
articles according to a report of the SCOAP3 Working Party
<http://scoap3.org/files/Scoap3WPReport.pdf> [pdf].

At this time, most European countries have agreed to participate, so did 44
US partners. Turkey, Israel and Australia have also joined the consortium.
Discussions are in progress with several countries in Asia, such as India,
China and Japan, said Vigen. While about 50 percent of the funds have been
pledged, the consortium will not start approaching the publishers officially
yet. "We need to have important players on board, like Japan and China,
before going to the publishers," he said.

Although formal discussions with the publishers have not officially started,
the consortium indicates that publishers show a pro-active attitude of
support to open access in HEP. Publishers would benefit from a more
sustainable model and researchers will have a broad access to peer-reviewed
articles, according to the SCOAP3 working party.

The costs of SCOAP3 would be distributed among all countries according to a
fair-share model based on the distribution of HEP articles per country. An
allowance of 10 percent of the SCOAP3 budget is foreseen to cover
publications from scientists from countries unable to make contribution to
the consortium.

Once the process of securing the budget and negotiations are achieved, the
consortium will establish governance and become active. It will be run by
CERN. According to Vigen, "CERN management has offered that CERN runs the
consortium as an in-kind contribution to the consortium, no charges will be
carried by members."

The consortium is expecting an impending launch. "The timeframe for
launching the consortium is linked to the negotiations with potential
partners, mainly in Asia, in order to have a global distribution of
partners, but hopefully it will be launched in 2009," said Vigen.

Once it reaches critical mass, SCOAP3 will be formally established and its
governance put in place. SCOAP3 will then issue its call for tender to
publishers, in order to assess the exact cost of its operation, and then
move forward with negotiating and placing contracts with publishers.

In parallel, SPIRES and the CERN document server, which are both databases,
are joining their resources to form INSPIRE, a database where all articles
on particle physics will be stored and accessible on an open access basis.
If the SCOAP3 project is successful, all articles published within the
SCOAP3 framework will be copied and stored in INSPIRE, which then will store
both pre-prints and peer-reviewed articles.

During the past year, I have been serving as a member of the Blue Ribbon
Task Force on Digital Preservation and Access, which is being funded by US
National Science Foundation and the Andrew Mellon Foundation, and supported
by a number of other key organizations. This Task Force has recently
released its first-year report, which can be found here:

http://brtf.sdsc.edu/biblio/BRTF_Interim_Report.pdf

Note that much of this report is concerned with establishing definitions and
surveying and synthesizing the current state of knowledge (or, sometimes,
lack of knowledge) as well as practical experience gained from a number of
digital preservation programs that offered testimony to the Task Force;
there  will be  a second year report containing conclusions and
reccomendations that builds on this one.

Professor Emeritus William (Bill) Brace 1929-2008

From: Crowley, Bill
Sent: Monday, October 13, 2008 1:29 PM
To: 'jesse@listserv.utk.edu'
Subject: Death of Professor Emeritus William (Bill) Brace

Greetings All:

It is with regret that I must inform you of the death of Professor Emeritus William (Bill) Brace of Dominican University's Graduate School of Library and Information Science. The following was released to the professional and local media.

William Brace 1929-2008
                Dr. William Brace, Professor Emeritus, Dominican University's Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS), died October 1 at the age of 79 in Oak Park, Illinois. In describing the influence of his decades of service to the Illinois and national library and information communities, Dominican University President Donna M. Carroll observed, "The impact that Bill Brace's commitment to learning and service made upon decades of library and information students is simply incalculable.  For so many and for so long he was the caring face of GSLIS and represented the best of his profession and his university,  proudly serving Rosary College as it grew into Dominican University."
                A proud son of the American West, Bill Brace was born in Cortez, Colorado, the second of four sons of Katherine and James Brace.  He grew up on the Navajo Reservation where his father taught in the vocational education branch of the Indian Service, living in various parts of Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico.  This unusual childhood served to mold Brace's commitment to advocating for access for all to library service on local, state, and international levels. Brace graduated from BYU with a bachelor's degree in 1951 and served in the United States army from 1951-1953.  He earned a master's degree from the Graduate Library School of the University of Chicago (1955) and a doctorate from the School of Library and Information Science at Case Western Reserve University (1975).  Brace served as a reference librarian with Brigham Young University, Chicago Teacher's College's Foreman Campus (now Northeastern Illinois University), and taught at Florida State University and Northeastern Illinois University.  He joined the Department of Library Science of Rosary College, now Dominican University, in 1961 and taught and researched for 37 years before retiring. 
A life member of the American Library Association and Illinois Library Association, as well as a past-member of the American Society for Information Science, the Association for Library and Information Science Education, the American Society for Information Science (serving as Chicago chapter president in 1992 and 1993), and the Catholic Library Association, Brace was also a member of the Caxton Club, Rotary International, Prairie Club of Chicago and University Club of Chicago.
                In reflecting on Bill Brace's long and successful career, Dominican University Provost Cheryl Johnson-Odim noted that Brace had been educated as a librarian at the University of Chicago and as an information scientist at Case Western. "Bill combined the two foundational cognate areas of library and information science," she noted. "That gave him a particularly strong understanding of the sources of tension that occasionally challenge and nearly always reinvigorate the field."
                Speaking on behalf of Brace's colleagues and successors within Dominican University's Graduate School of Library and Information Science, Dean Susan Roman recalled how she had known and admired Brace while a student at Rosary College. "On a philosophical level, Bill was passionate about his beliefs and insights. On a personal level, he inevitably respected the humanity of his intellectual opponents."
                Professor William (Bill) Brace is survived by his loving wife of many years, Phyllis Arlene Mayer Brace (known as Pam), nephews Melvin (Sherry), Robert (Susie), and Patrick Brace; a niece, Suzanne Brace; grandnieces, Joanna, Victoria, Madeline, and Skylar Brace; grandnephews Dylan, Ashton, and Aidan Brace, all of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the many students, alums, and professional colleagues he served in his long career as a librarian and library and information science educator.
                A memorial service will be held at a later date, to be announced.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Rotary Foundation or the Obama campaign.

Subject: Death of Connie Costantino

It is with deep sadness that I inform you of the sudden death of our dear colleague, Connie Costantino.
Connie and her husband were travelling to Rome; their plane was delayed and diverted to London. As they disembarked, she collapsed in the jetway. She died almost instantly of a blood clot in her lungs. Services are being held in her honor in London and Buffalo this week and later in San Diego. A scholarship has been established in Connie's name at San Jose; checks may be made payable to the SJSU Tower Foundation (Attn: C. Costantino Fund) and mailed to Brenda Lamb at San Jose SLIS, One Washington Square, San José, CA 95192-0029. For credit card information please call Ms. Lamb at 408.924.2492.

Prior to joining SLIS, Dr. Costantino spent over 30 years as a school, public and academic librarian, most recently as Library Director at Alliant International University from 1993 to 2003. She also consulted for libraries in Mexico City and Nairobi, Kenya. Dr. Costantino was active in the Association of College and Research Libraries, particularly the Distance Learning Section and chaired ACRL's International Relations Committee. California colleagues will especially know her work as chair of the Mentoring Committee for the California Library Association.

Dr. Costantino taught Information Organizations and Management, Instructional Strategies for Information Professionals, and International and Comparative Librarianship at SLIS. Her research focused on information literacy, particularly amongst undergraduate students and educators.

The sympathy of the entire SLIS community is extended to Connie's family. Her commitment to her profession and to her students, her graduate advising and mentoring, her exceptional teaching, her cheerful contributions to faculty decision-making, will all be long remembered. Her many grateful students will form a critical part of her enduring legacy.

Subject: [IFLA-L] Johan van Halm 1941-2008

My friend Johan van Halm passed away on 28 September 2008 at the age of 67.
Complications of a treatment against cancer turned out to be fatal …
On that sunny Sunday afternoon Johan's tireless travels came to a halt – death came cruelly sudden.

Having worked as a special librarian in the Netherlands in the 1960s, Johan was in the 70s one of the first of our profession in Europe who started a business as a consultant. During the last four decades he conducted research, ran courses, organized conferences. Johan was involved in numerous professional events. Characteristic for all of his projects were an optimistic attitude and a highly personal approach. He coupled cheerfulness and an outgoing life style with great faithfulness in his professional relations. No wonder that many of his long-term business contacts evolved into personal friendships.

Many of us remember Johan van Halm from his appearances at many congresses, all over Europe and the United States. As IFLA concerns: his first one was Brussels in 1977, his last one Durban 2007.

His death came so suddenly, it was such a terrible surprise. His many friends across the world, who have not even had a chance to say good bye to him, will sorely miss him. Johan leaves a 20 years old daughter behind. There is an opportunity to convey condolences and leave personal messages for her at www.eusidic.net/hn/

Limitations for Education

Andrew Rens. 2008

Abstract

Education is at the heart of development. The UN has recognized this fact
for quite some
time. Implementing the World Intellectual Property Organization's
Development Agenda
requires a special focus on how intellectual property rights interact with
education. This
chapter argues that the Development Agenda presents the right opportunity to
create
globally applicable minimum exceptions to copyrights for educational
purposes. Absent
such harmonization, educators and educational institutions around the world
will face
unnecessary hurdles to facilitating development.

This working paper was prepared for the EDGE (Emerging Dynamic Global
Economies)
Network, hosted by the University of Ottawa and funded in part by the
International
Development Research Centre.
