Provide coordination and programmatic guidance for the library technology services group (LTS), a multi-unit team, comprised of members from the University Libraries and Information Services & Technology. The LTS plans, deploys and supports a wide range of digital systems and services, including an integrated library system, WorldCat Local, link resolver, federated search software, institutional repository, search and discovery services, library web development, interlibrary loan system, proxy server, and staff desktop support. Collaborate with administrators, department heads and managers throughout all the University libraries and Information Services and Technology to adapt library services to the changing needs of faculty, researchers, and graduate students of Boston University and work with senior managers on the Library's other two teams, the Graduate & Research Services and Undergraduate & Distance Services to implement initiatives consistent with the Libraries’ strategic plan.
Presentations from the OAPEN seminar held on June 10, 2010 in Amsterdam are now available.
Here's an excerpt from the About OAPEN—Open Access Publishing in European Networks page:
OAPEN consists of a number of European university presses and universities, and is open to new partners. The publishing partners are all scholarly presses predominantly active in Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) and book publishing. Jointly the members have digital publishing programmes, conduct experiments with OA, make use of digital repositories, publish in different European languages, have a worldwide distribution network (including the USA), and cooperate closely with university libraries.
Boston University's Mugar Memorial Library is recruiting an Institutional Repository Librarian.
Here's an excerpt from the ad:
Manage the Boston University Digital Common, Boston University’s institutional repository, including oversight of the repository, coordination with the Information Services and Technology (IS&T) staff that provides primary systems support for the hardware and software, outreach to faculty, content recruitment, documentation, publicity materials, training and supervision of support staff, and developing assessment measures for the repository's impact. Work with the Institutional Repository Steering Committee and with other staff to define and implement repository policies, workflows, and capabilities and with the AUL and IS&T staff to develop effective digital preservation policies and procedures. Responsible for ensuring that the Digital Common programs align with the needs of the BU community and that BU faculty, students, and staff are aware of and know how to utilize BU Digital Common services. Collaborate with the other department heads and managers on the Digital Initiatives & Open Access Team and with senior managers on the Library’s other two teams, the Graduate & Research Services and Undergraduate & Distance Services, to implement initiatives consistent with the Library's strategic plan.
The Ex Libris Group has released SFX 4.0.
Here's an excerpt from the press release:
Ex Libris® Group . . . is pleased to announce the general release of version 4.0 of its SFX® OpenURL link resolver, already deployed at over 1800 institutions in 53 countries. With the updated and enhanced administrative interface and the redesigned structure of the SFX KnowledgeBase, librarians benefit from streamlined workflows, new functionality, and more frequent KnowledgeBase updates for both hosted and local SFX installations.
New administrative functions—many of which are the direct result of feedback from the customer community—further emphasize the importance that libraries attribute to maintaining full control over the way in which they expose their e-collection to their users and brand the library’s scholarly services. And what’s more, SFX has been keeping up with the times. As the scholarly environment has evolved, configurations have been added to SFX to accommodate changes in library services and the development of new ones, such as the bX article recommender service.
Here's an excerpt from the announcement:
VuFind's long beta period is now over. Today, VuFind 1.0 has been released. In addition to improved stability, the new release includes several features missing from the previous release candidate: flexible support for non-MARC metadata formats, a mobile interface, Dewey Decimal support, integration with Serials Solutions' Summon, and more!
