      Libraries at the Crossroads

      Posted in Libraries, Reports and White Papers on September 16th, 2015

      The Pew Research Center has released Libraries at the Crossroads.

      Here's an excerpt:

      A new survey from Pew Research Center brings this complex situation into stark relief. Many Americans say they want public libraries to:

      • support local education;
      • serve special constituents such as veterans, active-duty military personnel and immigrants;
      • help local businesses, job seekers and those upgrading their work skills;
      • embrace new technologies such as 3-D printers and provide services to help patrons learn about high-tech gadgetry.

          "Important Win for Fair Use in ‘Dancing Baby’ Lawsuit"

          Posted in Copyright, Digital Copyright Wars on September 16th, 2015

          The EFF has released "Important Win for Fair Use in 'Dancing Baby' Lawsuit."

          Here's an excerpt:

          The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) represents Stephanie Lenz, who-back in 2007-posted a 29-second video to YouTube of her children dancing in her kitchen. The Prince song "Let's Go Crazy" was playing on a stereo in the background of the short clip. Universal Music Group sent YouTube a notice under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), claiming that the family video infringed the copyright in Prince's song. EFF sued Universal on Lenz's behalf, arguing that Universal abused the DMCA by improperly targeting a lawful fair use.

          Today [September 14, 2015], the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled that copyright holders like Universal must consider fair use before trying to remove content from the Internet. It also rejected Universal's claim that a victim of takedown abuse cannot vindicate her rights if she cannot show actual monetary loss.

              Guidelines for the Evaluation of Digital Scholarship in History

              Posted in Scholarly Communication on September 15th, 2015

              The American Historical Association has released Guidelines for the Evaluation of Digital Scholarship in History.

              Here's an excerpt:

              The American Historical Association has established this committee to help ensure that our profession acts in far-sighted ways as the digital presence grows. Most concretely, it seeks to help clarify the policies associated with the evaluation of scholarly work in digital forms. . . .

              Because academic contributions in the emergent digital environment can take many forms, the AHA has asked the committee to examine not only "work that can be seen as analogous to print scholarship that is reviewable by peers (i.e. journal articles and books), but also to address the myriad uses of digital technology for research, teaching, pedagogy, and even some that might be described as service."

                  "The Gold OA Landscape 2011-2014"

                  Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on September 15th, 2015

                  Walt Crawford has published "The Gold OA Landscape 2011-2014" in Cites & Insights: Crawford at Large.

                  Here's an excerpt:

                  This issue consists of an excerpted version of The Gold OA Landscape 2011- 2014, published September 10, 2015 as a PDF ebook for $55.00 and on September 11, 2015 as a paperback book for $60.00. . . .

                  This book represents the first overview of essentially all of serious gold OA—that is, what's published by the journals listed in the Directory of Open Access Journals. I believe it's important for all OA publishers and for many libraries and OA advocates. If it does well, or if there's some form of alternative funding, I'll continue tracking the field in the future.

                  The issue—starting with the first numbered section below—includes a little more than one-third of what's in the book (a little more than half the text, but none of the 69 graphs, and probably less than half of the many, many tables), I believe these excerpts are useful on their own, and enough to provide a reasonably good picture of gold OA in 2011-2014- but they're not the whole story. For that, you'll have to buy the book.

                        Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Self-Archiving on September 14th, 2015

                        Stevan Harnad has self-archived "Optimizing Open Access Policy."

                        Here's an excerpt:

                        This overview of the current status of Open Access (OA) to peer-reviewed research describes the steps that need to be taken to achieve universal OA. . . . To accelerate progress, more institutions and funders need to adopt more effective OA mandates: All universities and funders should require (1) institutional deposit (2) immediately upon acceptance for publication; urge (but not require) (3) immediate OA and (4) rights-retention; (5) minimize allowable embargo length, (6) implement the copy-request Button; (7) provide rich usage and citation metrics and (8) designate repository deposit of publications as the locus for institutional performance review as well as funding applications and renewals.
