Establishing a research information system as part of an integrated approach to information management: best practice at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)

Accés obert
30 de juny 2011
The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is one of the largest research and higher education organisations in the world focusing on engineering and natural sciences.

At present KIT, under the chairmanship of its executive board, is installing an extensive current research information system (CRIS) covering all institutes and facilities of the organization.

This project is based on the fact that a consistent overview on research performance has become fundamental for the international competition of research institutions and is increasingly important for strategic decisions on the executive level.

LIBER's strategy (at http://www.libereurope.eu/node/59) has established Key Performance Areas for LIBER to add value to the library and information services available to European researchers. The five key Performance Areas are: Scholarly Communication, Digitisation and Resource Discovery, Heritage Collections and Preservation, Organisation and Human Resources, and LIBER Services.

Fostering new roles for librarians. Skills set for repository managers: results of a survey in Italy

Accés obert
30 de juny 2011
The open access movement in scholarly communication has considerably grown over the last ten years, and has subsequently driven an increase in the establishment of institutional repositories (IRs). This change led to develop and to define new professional roles and skills for the IRs’ effective management.

Traditionally, metadata curation has been regarded as a strategic element for repositories and therefore the library and information community has taken up the management of these digital archives. However, it has become clear that traditional librarian professional skills, such as metadata expertise and curation, leave now the way to a richer set of skills such as management and communication skills, technical skills as well as expertise on access rights and on preserving digital content.

How to assess the influence of research - translating user feedback into tools

Accés obert
30 de juny 2011
How influential is scholarly communication? This is a question increasingly asked of librarians in the face of higher expectations around the availability and rapid provision of relevant data. These questions have traditionally been addressed by document output counts and the Impact Factors of journals that have been published in; while this is certainly useful to a degree, concern has been expressed about basing decisions on such limited metrics that apply to varying degrees to distinct fields and career stages.

How to teach information literacy relevant to students: an online credit course model from the University of Tartu Library

Accés obert
30 de juny 2011
To communicate the necessity of information literacy in the university and to draw attention to it as a possible subject, we created in 2006 a web-based general course model of information literacy. The course is based on the ALA standards and is now included in the university curriculum as a credit bearing optional elective course, giving 3 ECTS credit points. We relied on experiences described in professional literature: information literacy can be effectively taught in separate courses, and such courses should be offered by libraries as well. On the basis of the course, we have also created an advanced course for doctoral students, several specialized courses in information literacy integrated into subjects, and a nationwide course for gymnasium students.

Managing research information for researchers and universities

30 de juny 2011
Recent research on scholarly behavior converges on conclusions about ecologies of information-related services in universities and across academic disciplines. In the past few years, numerous credible studies - conducted in Europe and North America - have offered evidence about information needs of a variety of researchers and their universities. While we have witnessed simultaneous evolution of discipline-based hubs and institution-based repositories, diverse international reports have identified gaps in digital infrastructure and library provision of services to manage research information.

New business models and legal framework for dissemination of digital content

30 de juny 2011
The Norwegian National Library made a decision in 2005 to digitize all of it´s collection. Being a multimedia legal deposit institution the decision implies digitizing printed material, manuscripts, music, film, photos, radio broadcasts and television. A long term schedule for the total operation was presented to the owner, The Ministry of Culture in 2006.

The transition to cloud-based library services - a vendor’s perspective

Accés obert
30 de juny 2011
Recent global changes, such as technological advances, evolving needs of students and researchers, and extensive budget cuts, are driving libraries to explore new operating models and to consider the benefits of hosted services of various kinds. As a vendor of library software for two and a half decades, Ex Libris has been anticipating the changes and building an infrastructure to support new, hosted modes of operation.

Towards machine-actionable scholarly communication

Accés obert
30 de juny 2011
Ever since their emergence, both the products of scholarly communication and the supporting services have mainly targeted human users. Gradually, however, products are emerging that are more friendly for use by machines, or are even solely designed for them. The emergence of a machine-actionable layer of scholarly communication happens at different levels, and touches upon primary research results, research data, and the research process itself.
The presentation will provide an insight in this ongoing evolution, and will provide concrete illustrations of this trend. It will also zoom in on research data as a new first class objects in digital scholarly communication, some of the challenges related to fully integrating this newcomer, and opportunities and challenges for libraries with this regard.

From here to the clouds: eResearch and the research library

Accés obert
29 de juny 2011
Current efforts supporting eResearch environments have focused on large scale data capture and preservation challenges. Equally significant challenges, however, are presented by new paradigms in research methods and research communications. Simultaneously IT services are moving to the cloud, driving questions centered on the role of the institution and its library in a world where individuals can obtain solutions anywhere in the cloud. As these challenges are larger than any single institution can meet, the research library is called to consider reconceiving its role along lines that depart from our past. How will these shifts impact our models for organizing, operating and staffing research libraries? The presentation will touch on this rapid evolution and suggest some approaches to reframing our mental models of the research library in the context of the university.

Increasing access to special collections

29 de juny 2011
This presentation extracts the essence of many related efforts to help libraries, archives, and museums increase access to their special collections. The Shifting Gears essay (which was presented to the LIBER conference in 2008) will be used as the launching point. Shifting Gears argued for scaling up the digitization of special collections by thinking in terms of access, instead of preservation (when we are preserving the originals).

Mass-digitization at the Complutense University Library. Access and preservation of its bibliographic heritage

29 de juny 2011
IIn the mid-1990’s, the Complutense Library applied the growing body of new technologies to launch, in partnership with the Foundation for the Health Sciences and GlaxoSmithKline Laboratories, a pioneering project: the digitization of a biomedicine valuable collection. The project resulted in the Dioscórides Digital Library. Nevertheless, by 2006, results were rather limited and the digitization rate was very slow. Currently, Dioscórides Digital Library offers free access to 3,000 books from the 14th to the 18th centuries and approximately 50,000 engravings.

In September 2006 the Complutense University of Madrid and Google signed a partnership agreement intended to large-scale digitization of our collections in the public domain.
