        "DPOE Interview with Danielle Spalenka of the Digital POWRR Project"

        Posted in Digital Curation & Digital Preservation on July 21st, 2015

        Barrie Howard has published "DPOE Interview with Danielle Spalenka of the Digital POWRR Project" in The Signal.

        Here's an excerpt:

        Our review of the landscape of digital preservation instruction was that it is largely aimed at an audience beginning to come to grips with the idea that digital objects are subject to loss if we don't actively care for them. There are lots of offerings discussing the theory of digital preservation—the "why" of the problem—and we found that there were limited opportunities to learn the "how" of digital preservation, both on the advocacy and technical sides. We also found that other great offerings, like the Digital Preservation Management Workshop Series based at MIT, had a tuition fee that was unaffordable for many prospective attendees, especially from under-funded institutions. Our goal in this phase is to make the workshops free to attend.

            Mapping the Digital Divide

            Posted in Digital Culture, Reports and White Papers on July 20th, 2015

            The Council of Economic Advisers, an agency within the Executive Office of the President, has released Mapping the Digital Divide.

            Here's an excerpt:

            Overall, the evidence shows that we have made progress, with the largest gains occurring for those groups that started with the least. While this suggests the beginning of convergence toward uniformly high levels of access and adoption, there is still a substantial distance to go, particularly in our poorest neighborhoods and most rural communities, to ensure that all Americans can take advantage of the opportunities created by recent advances in computing and communications technology.

                "Bigger on the Inside: Building Research Data Services at the University of Virginia"

                Posted in ARL Libraries, Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Research Libraries on July 20th, 2015

                Michele Claibourn has published "Bigger on the Inside: Building Research Data Services at the University of Virginia" in Insights: the UKSG Journal.

                Here's an excerpt:

                Every story has a beginning, where the narrator chooses to start, though this is rarely the genesis. This story begins with the launch of the University of Virginia Library's new Research Data Services unit in October 2013. Born from the conjoining of a data management team and a data analysis team, Research Data Services expanded to encompass data discovery and acquisitions, research software support, and new expertise in the use of restricted data. Our purpose is to respond to the challenges created by the growing ubiquity and scale of data by helping researchers acquire, analyze, manage, and archive these resources. We have made serious strides toward becoming 'the face of data services at U.Va.' This article tells a bit of our story so far, relays some early challenges and how we've responded to them, outlines several initial successes, and summarizes a few lessons going forward.

                      Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management on July 17th, 2015

                      Julie Goldman et al. have published "Assessment of Data Management Services at New England Region Resource Libraries" in the Journal of eScience Librarianship.

                      Here's an excerpt:

                      The focus of data management literature has been on programs at individual institutions and on higher-education initiatives as a whole (Reznik-Zellen et al. 2012). In contrast, this assessment distinctively surveys New England Region (NER) medical and biomedical libraries and their development of educational programs and appropriate services for research data management. Unique to this study, this group of special libraries shared their institution's status on offering data services, how their librarians are becoming educated on data management, and if their users are in need of these types of services.
