"A Practical Starter Guide on Developing Accessible Websites"

Posted in Weblogs/Websites on July 19th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Cynthia Ng and Michael Schofield have published "A Practical Starter Guide on Developing Accessible Websites" in the Code4Lib Journal.

Here's an excerpt:

There is growing concern about the accessibility of the online content and services provided by libraries and public institutions. While many articles cover legislation, general benefits, and common opportunities to improve web accessibility on the surface (e.g., alt tags), few articles discuss web accessibility in more depth, and when they do, they are typically not specific to library web services. This article is meant to fill in this vacuum and will provide practical best practices and code.

"Open Access Publishing Models and How OA Can Work in the Humanities"

Posted in Digital Humanities, Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Books, Scholarly Journals on July 18th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Martin Paul Eve has published "Open Access Publishing Models and How OA Can Work in the Humanities" in the Bulletin of the Association for Information Science and Technology.

Here's an excerpt:

Open access (OA) has been shaping and benefiting the scientific community for years now, but this new wave of disseminating research freely has not quite taken hold in the field of humanities. Though humanities publishers could also benefit from an OA model, many have been resistant, citing possible issues with plagiarism or appropriation of an author's work for less than ideal uses. There are also challenges with the cost of publishing OA content, which for humanities could be much higher than in the scientific community due to the length of works produced.

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Metadata on July 18th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Angelina Kraft et al. have published "14 Years of PID Services at the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB): Connected Frameworks, Research Data and Lessons Learned from a National Research Library Perspective" in Data Science Journal.

Here's an excerpt:

In an ideal research world, any scientific content should be citable and the coherent content, as well as the citation itself, should be persistent. However, today’s scientists do not only produce traditional research papers—they produce comprehensive digital resources and collections. TIB's mission is to develop a supportive framework for a sustainable access to such digital content—focusing on areas of engineering as well as architecture, chemistry, information technology, mathematics and physics. The term digital content comprises all digitally available resources such as audiovisual media, databases, texts, images, spreadsheets, digital lab journals, multimedia, 3D objects, statistics and software code.

"Massive Newspaper Migration—Moving 22 Million Records from CONTENTdm to Solphal"

Posted in Digital Archives and Special Collections, Digital Curation & Digital Preservation on July 17th, 2017 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Alan Witkowski et al. have published "Massive Newspaper Migration—Moving 22 Million Records from CONTENTdm to Solphal" in D-Lib Magazine.

Utah Digital Newspapers is a pioneering digital newspapers program at the University of Utah J. Willard Marriott Library. Recently, a small project team completed a successful migration away from CONTENTdm onto a home-grown system called Solphal, built using open-source applications. The migration process is detailed along with examples of scripts used to prepare and enhance metadata. Transitioning away from a limiting vendor-based solution to a home-grown system has enabled the Utah Digital Newspapers program to be more responsive to user requests as well as realizing greater efficiencies in hardware and software. The platform has opened up new possibilities for the future as the collection continues to grow.
