          Discovery Services: A White Paper for the Texas State Library & Archives Commission

          Posted in Electronic Resources, OPACs/Discovery Systems on November 20th, 2014

          The Texas State Library and Archives Commission has released Discovery Services: A White Paper for the Texas State Library & Archives Commission.

          Here's an excerpt:

          Discussions among libraries that have recently implemented discovery services are likely to result in agreement that implementation was challenging. However, once implemented, librarians are generally happy with their decisions to offer discovery services to their patrons. Based on librarian experiences of both the challenges and rewards of implementing a discovery service, the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) contracted with Amigos Library Services to write a white paper that would include basic information concerning discovery services, as well as an overview of the major discovery vendors.

              "Privacy by Design and the Online Library Environment"

              Posted in Privacy, Research Libraries on November 20th, 2014

              Dan Blum has published "Privacy by Design and the Online Library Environment" in Information Standards Quarterly.

              Here's an excerpt:

              This paper focuses on ways that libraries can incorporate advanced identity management concepts within the Privacy By Design framework to meet their needs as they continue their transition from the brick, mortar, and paper era to an era of mixed physical and digital content. In order to add value over and above what researchers can find with search engines and freely available content on the Internet, libraries must excel at supporting both ordinary knowledge seekers and academic researchers in fulfilling their content-and collaboration-related needs. Increasingly, libraries must support a seamless, personalized, and collaborative experience for diverse audiences across the full lifecycle from content discovery to content delivery while at the same time protecting patrons' privacy and intellectual property prerogatives.
