"A System for Distributed Minting and Management of Persistent Identifiers"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Metadata on May 27th, 2015 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Lukasz Bolikowski, et al. have published "A System for Distributed Minting and Management of Persistent Identifiers" in the International Journal of Digital Curation.

Here's an excerpt:

Minting persistent identifiers and managing their metadata is typically governed by a single organization. Such a single point of failure poses a risk to longevity and long-term preservation of identifiers. In this paper we address the risk by proposing a radically different approach, in which minting and management of persistent identifiers is distributed, and the integrity of the distributed system is guaranteed by public-key cryptography. We describe the general architecture of the system, analyse its robustness and discuss potential deployment scenarios

"’Stay With Me’: ISPs Head to Court to Fight New Net Neutrality Rules"

Posted in Internet Regulation, Legislation and Government Regulation, Net Neutrality on May 27th, 2015 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Meredith Filak Rose has published "Stay With Me': ISPs Head to Court to Fight New Net Neutrality Rules" in Public Knowledge's Net Neutrality Blog.

Here's an excerpt:

It's been almost three months since the FCC issued its order reclassifying Internet Service Providers as Title II telecommunications carriers and establishing strong net neutrality rules. No one was surprised when the ISPs cried foul and sued to overturn the ruling. . . .

Earlier this week, the ISPs attempted to stop the clock by arguing that the regulations should be delayed until after the lawsuit has worked its way completely through the courts-a process that will, in all likelihood, take years.

"Data Literacy Instruction in Academic Libraries: Best Practices for Librarians"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management on May 26th, 2015 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Amanda Wanner has published "Data Literacy Instruction in Academic Libraries: Best Practices for Librarians" in See Also:.

Here's an excerpt:

This paper discusses the challenges and opportunities of bringing data literacy instruction to academic libraries. Information literacy and digital literacy in libraries has been widely discussed in the library sciences and education literature, but until recently very little focus has been given to data literacy. However, new e-government and open data initiatives over the past decade have created widely available public data that is of great interest to students and academics. Increased technological capabilities to process "big data" have also created new opportunities for the layperson and researcher alike. One popular article claims, "Ensuring that big data creates big value calls for a reskilling effort that is at least as much about fostering a data-driven mindset and analytical culture as it is about adopting new technology" (Harris, 2012). The influx of available data presents unique challenges for librarians. How can libraries play a role, for example, in this "reskilling effort" to develop a "data-driven mindset"?
