            Linked Archival Metadata: A Guidebook (Version 0.99)

            Posted in Digital Archives and Special Collections, Linking, Linked Data, and Semantic Web on April 28th, 2014

            Eric Lease Morgan and LiAM have released Linked Archival Metadata: A Guidebook (Version 0.99).

            Here's an excerpt:

            Linked data is a process for embedding the descriptive information of archives into the very fabric of the Web. By transforming archival description into linked data, an archivist will enable other people as well as computers to read and use their archival description, even if the others are not a part of the archival community. The process goes both ways. Linked data also empowers archivists to use and incorporate the information of other linked data providers into their local description. This enables archivists to make their descriptions more thorough, more complete, and more value-added. For example, archival collections could be automatically supplemented with geographic coordinates in order to make maps, images of people or additional biographic descriptions to make collections come alive, or bibliographies for further reading.

                "Librarian, Heal Thyself: A Scholarly Communication Analysis of LIS Journals"

                Posted in Libraries, Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on April 28th, 2014

                Micah Vandegrift and Chealsye Bowley have published "Librarian, Heal Thyself: A Scholarly Communication Analysis of LIS Journals" in In the Library with the Lead Pipe.

                Here's an excerpt:

                This article presents an analysis of 111 Library and Information Science journals based on measurements of "openness" including copyright policies, open access self-archiving policies and open access publishing options. We propose a new metric to rank journals, the J.O.I. Factor (Journal Openness Index), based on measures of openness rather than perceived rank or citation impact. Finally, the article calls for librarians and researchers in LIS to examine our scholarly literature and hold it to the principles and standards that we are asking of other disciplines.
