The challenges of building a digital preservation system

Accés obert
1 de jul. 2011
In the last two decades, digital technology has enabled us to create, use, and be enriched by information in ways that were unthinkable a generation ago. The growth in the number of digital items in today’s library collections has led to an understanding that new actions must be taken to preserve these digital assets and make them available to future generations.

While many organizations have systems in place for storing and managing digital objects, these systems are not always designed with preservation in mind. Digital preservation is about guaranteeing the continued usability of and access to digital content tomorrow and well into the future. Although preservation focuses on risk management, we would be mistaken if we equated preservation with backup or disaster recovery.

The research library, the university and the network

Accés obert
1 de jul. 2011
Libraries evolved to meet needs in a time of when information materials were distributed and consumed in physical form. Their services and their cooperative arrangements reflect this. Our discussion about digital has tended to focus on tools and collections, but what happens to the structure and organization of the library, its role within the university and the cooperative arrangements it makes, as the network reconfigures how research and learning are carried out? This presentation will present a framework for thinking about the research library as its services, expertise and boundaries change in a network environment.

A partnership approach to promoting information literacy for higher education researchers

Accés obert
30 de juny 2011
The promotion and development of information literacy for researchers has tended in the UK to be the preserve of university librarians. Although much good work takes place in practice to help develop appropriate skills and understanding, this is often haphazard. There is thus a strong case for greater join-up involving input from and strategic coordination between interested parties beyond the library sector.

This is the rationale for the creation of a coalition of partners, including information professionals, graduate school personnel, data management specialists, research supervisors and researchers. The programme of work overseen by this partnership has involved engaging with and building on existing initiatives, as well as initiating its own projects.

All the world’s a stage: Improving students’ information skills with dramatic video tutorials

Accés obert
30 de juny 2011
This paper will describe an on-going project at Bilkent University Library, Turkey, to create a series of instructional online videos aimed specifically at the so-called Net Generation (Generation Z) library users. These videos, which will be produced by doctoral students from the university’s Communication and Design department in collaboration with the Library and will be uploaded to the world wide web. The videos seek to present basic reference and information problems in the form of short, informal dramatic exchanges between a student and a librarian, rather than using the formal pedagogical format of most traditional online tutorials.

The recent report of the “Comité des Sages” recommends that “cultural institutions should make public domain material digitised with public funding as widely available as possible for access and re-use”. One of the objectives of the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities is "encouraging the holders of cultural heritage to support open access by providing their resources on the Internet".

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.
