The Role of Research Libraries in the Creation, Archiving, Curation, and Preservation of Tools for the Digital Humanities

Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Digital Humanities, Research Libraries on August 2nd, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

RLUK has released The Role of Research Libraries in the Creation, Archiving, Curation, and Preservation of Tools for the Digital Humanities.

Here's an excerpt:

The purpose of this report is to present and discuss the results of the 'Research Libraries and Digital Humanities Tools' project undertaken by RLUK. The project aimed to explore the role that libraries currently have or can potentially have in the creation, archiving, curation, and preservation of tools for Digital Humanities research; it is part of RLUK's goal to understand the role that research libraries play in digital scholarship, identify specific areas where they can add value as well as facilitate the sharing of existing best practice.

Therefore, a survey was conducted where professionals, mostly from research libraries within the RLUK membership, took part and reported on the variety of Digital Humanities projects they support and the different ways in which they engage with scholarly work in the area. Additional discussions with some of these participants not only shed further light into the collaborative activities formed in the context of various initiatives, such as the production and preservation of tools, but also into the different models of involvement in Digital Humanities scholarship.

"The Surge in New University Presses and Academic-Led Publishing: An Overview of a Changing Publishing Ecology in the UK"

Posted in Publishing, Scholarly Books, Scholarly Journals, University Presses on August 2nd, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Janneke Adema and Graham Stone have published "The Surge in New University Presses and Academic-Led Publishing: An Overview of a Changing Publishing Ecology in the UK" in LIBER Quarterly.

Here's an excerpt:

This article outlines the rise and development of New University Presses and Academic-Led Presses in the UK or publishing for the UK market. Based on the Jisc research project, Changing publishing ecologies: a landscape study of new university presses and academic-led publishing, commonalities between these two types of presses are identified to better assess their future needs and requirements. Based on this analysis, the article argues for the development of a publishing toolkit, for further research into the creation of a typology of presses and publishing initiatives, and for support with community building to help these initiatives grow and develop further, whilst promoting a more diverse publishing ecology.

CNI released "Information Scientist Herbert Van de Sompel to Receive Paul Evan Peters Award."

Here's an excerpt:

An accomplished researcher and information scientist, Van de Sompel is perhaps best known for his role in the development of protocols designed to expose data and make them accessible to other systems, forging links that connect related information, thereby enhancing, facilitating, and deepening the research process. These initiatives include the OpenURL framework (stemming from his earlier work on the SFX link resolver), as well as the Open Archives Initiative (OAI), which included the Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) and the Object Reuse and Exchange (OAI-ORE) scheme. Other notable contributions include the Memento protocol, which enables browsers to access earlier versions of the Web easily, and ResourceSync, which allows applications to remain synchronized with evolving content collections.

The Data and Information Services Center (DISC), formerly known as the Data and Program Library Services (DPLS) has provided learning, teaching and research support to students, staff and faculty in social sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison for 50 years. What changes have our organization, collections, and services experienced? How has DISC evolved with the advancement of technology? What role does DISC play in the current and future landscape of social science data services on our campus and beyond? This paper gives answers to these questions and recommends a few simple steps in adding social science data services in academic libraries.
