"The Research Data Alliance: Globally Co-Ordinated Action against Barriers to Data Publishing and Sharing"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Publishing on September 29th, 2014

Andrew Treloar has published "The Research Data Alliance: Globally Co-Ordinated Action against Barriers to Data Publishing and Sharing" in a special issue of Learned Publishing on data publishing.

Here's an excerpt:

This article discusses the drivers behind the formation of the Research Data Alliance (RDA), its current state, the lessons learned from its first full year of operation, and its anticipated impact on data publishing and sharing. One of the pressing challenges in data infrastructure (taken here to include issues relating to hardware, software and content format, as well as human actors) is how best to enable data interoperability across boundaries. This is particularly critical as the world deals with bigger and more complex problems that require data and insights from a range of disciplines. The RDA has been set up to enable more data to be shared across barriers to address these challenges. It does this through focused Working Groups and Interest Groups, formed of experts from around the world, and drawing from the academic, industry, and government sectors.

            Does Discovery Still Happen in the Library? Roles and Strategies for a Shifting Reality

            Posted in Electronic Resources, ERM/Discovery Systems, Research Libraries on September 26th, 2014

            ITHAKA S+R. has released Does Discovery Still Happen in the Library? Roles and Strategies for a Shifting Reality.

            Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

            In this Issue Brief, Roger Schonfeld explores how the vision that the library should be the starting point for research-a vision many library directors hold-is often in conflict with the practices of faculty and students. As users migrate to other starting points, librarians could invest in ways to bring them back. But there is also an opportunity for librarians to re-think their role and perhaps pursue a different vision altogether.
