It provides a powerful insight into how researchers view their own behaviour and the research environment within the UK today.

        "Science and Technology Librarians: User Engagement and Outreach Activities in the Area of Scholarly Communication"

        Posted in Research Libraries, Scholarly Communication on April 8th, 2016

        Lutishoor Salisbury and Julie Speer have published "Science and Technology Librarians: User Engagement and Outreach Activities in the Area of Scholarly Communication" in Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship.

        Here's an excerpt:

        This paper highlights the findings of a survey completed by ACRL/STS members on scholarly communication issues. In particular it identifies the percentage of their daily activities that are spent in support of scholarly communication activities; extent of change of job responsibilities in the last five years; roles engaged in relating to scholarly communication including those that are formal responsibilities, those they are informally engaged in, or those with which they have no engagement. It highlights areas in the area of scholarly communication that STS members need to know more about or want to know more about. It presents the status of open access policies at members' institutions and the needs expressed by members about activities that STS or ACRL could undertake to help advance their work in the areas of scholarly communication.

          Ithaka S+R US Faculty Survey 2015

          Posted in ERM/Discovery Systems, Publishing, Reports and White Papers, Research Libraries, Scholarly Communication on April 5th, 2016

          Ithaka S+R has released the Ithaka S+R US Faculty Survey 2015 .

          Here's an excerpt:

          Ithaka S+R's survey of US faculty members has been fielded regularly since 2000. This project provides a periodic snapshot of practices and perceptions related to scholarly communications and information usage. The scholar-centric nature of the questionnaire ensures that potential changes in research and teaching inform our thinking, not only about academic libraries and scholarly publishing, but about changes in the educational enterprise more broadly.

            Knowledge Unbound: Selected Writings on Open Access, 2002-2011

            Posted in Scholarly Communication on March 30th, 2016

            The MIT Press has released Knowledge Unbound: Selected Writings on Open Access, 2002-2011 by Peter Suber.

            Here's an excerpt:

            This book is a selection of my writings on OA, mostly from the newsletter [Free Online Scholarship Newsletter/SPARC Open Access Newsletter]. The hardest part of putting it together was deciding what to omit. Our first whack at a selection was much too large for a single volume and we had to cut more than 20 whole essays. Our second whack was more feasible, but by the time we agreed on it I'd written half a dozen new articles and wanted to include a few of them.

            In the end, we selected these 44 pieces published between March 2002 and March 2011. I've abridged some to minimize repetition, but haven't otherwise modified the texts.

                A Day in the Life of a (Serious) Researcher: Envisioning the Future of the Research Library

                Posted in ARL Libraries, Reports and White Papers, Research Libraries, Scholarly Communication on March 9th, 2016

                Ithaka S+R has released A Day in the Life of a (Serious) Researcher: Envisioning the Future of the Research Library .

                Here's an excerpt:

                Beyond this, the library is not even the best starting point for envisioning the library. A better starting point is to develop an understanding about the lives and information practices of the scholars and students who depend on the library in all its shapes and forms. Therefore, in this Cornell project, we looked at what academic researchers do day-to-day and how they acquire, use, and share information in the course of their daily activities. From our interpretations of these data we imagined new models.

                  Roy Tennant: "Remembering PACS-L"

                  Posted in Libraries, Scholarly Communication on December 2nd, 2015

                  Roy Tennant has published "Remembering PACS-L" in The Digital Shift.

                  Here's an excerpt:

                  For quite a while this list was where everything new in librarianship was happening. Despite its name, topics well beyond public access computer systems were discussed and debated. It was, in a nutshell, an essential place to hear and be heard. Its like was never to be again, as since then online communication channels have burgeoned and diversified.

                      Posted in ARL Libraries, Reports and White Papers, Research Libraries, Scholarly Communication on November 20th, 2015

                      Ithaka S+R has released Office of Scholarly Communication: Scope, Organizational Placement, and Planning in Ten Research Libraries.

                      Here's an excerpt:

                      The project was designed to gather basic information about these issues at some of the largest research-intensive university libraries. It finds categorical differences in the vision for the scholarly communications unit and its organizational placement, as well as associated differences in staffing and budget.

                        "UCL Press: The UK’s ‘First Fully Open Access’ University Press"

                        Posted in Scholarly Communication on November 12th, 2015

                        Paul Ayris and Lara Speicher have published "UCL Press: The UK's 'First Fully Open Access' University Press" in Insights: the UKSG Journal.

                        Here's an excerpt:

                        UCL Press first came into existence as a commercial publisher in 1991, reaching its zenith as a publisher in around 1996. After that, activity diminished and publishing effectively came to an end. UCL Press was relaunched in June 2015 as 'the first fully OA university press in the UK'. It forms a substantial contribution to the UCL 20344 strategy to deliver UCL as an accessible and publicly engaged organization. It also feeds the wider global move towards open science. UCL has a reputation as a disruptive innovator, and the relaunch of UCL Press carries on that noble tradition into the 21st century.
