"Ensuring Research Integrity: The Role of Data Management in Current Crises"

Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Research Libraries on December 4th, 2014

Heather Coates has published Ensuring Research Integrity: The Role of Data Management in Current Crises in College & Research Libraries News.

Here's an excerpt:

Acknowledging responsible data management as foundational for research integrity is not sufficient. We need to value the processes and products of research equally by: 1) creating incentives for responsible management of data, 2) developing standards and practices for peer review that balance evaluation of methodological quality and research integrity with potential impact, and 3) carefully considering the resources necessary to responsibly manage and preserve newly created data for five-to-ten years after publication.

      "Notice of Funding Opportunity: Second Round of Funding for FY 2015 National Leadership Grants for Libraries"

      Posted in Grants on December 4th, 2014

      IMLS has released a "Notice of Funding Opportunity: Second Round of Funding for FY 2015 National Leadership Grants for Libraries."

      Here's an excerpt:

      The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) announces the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the second round of FY 2015 National Leadership Grants for Libraries (NLG). The IMLS National Leadership Grants for Libraries program invests $12 million annually in projects that improve professional library and archive practice, drive innovation, and have a national impact.

      This year, IMLS offered two opportunities to apply for FY 2015 National Leadership Grants for Libraries. This NOFO announces the February 2, 2015 deadline and is a call for two-page preliminary proposals. From the proposals, we will select applicants and invite them to submit full proposals in June. Applicants who were not invited to continue from the first round of funding are welcome to submit new preliminary proposals during this round.

      We encourage applications that address two project categories. They were identified in a series of IMLS Focus meetings held earlier this year: 

      • National digital platform, with support to bridge gaps between disparate pieces of the existing digital library infrastructure for increased efficiencies, cost-savings, access, and services. Note: the program cannot support the digitization of content.
      •  Learning spaces in libraries, including work that builds institutional capacity, develops STEM learning, engages community, and encourages partnerships to support all types of learning and inquiry, including participatory and hands-on learning in libraries.

                CNI Executive Roundtable Report: E-Book Strategies

                Posted in E-Books, Publishing, Research Libraries, Scholarly Books on December 3rd, 2014

                CNI has released CNI Executive Roundtable Report: E-Book Strategies .

                Here's an excerpt from the announcement:

                During two separate convenings of this roundtable, we explored questions that these new directions raise for institutions, the strategies that institutions are using to make choices among the available paths, the stakeholders involved, and the new programs and projects that CNI’s members are planning or have implemented. Our emphasis was on breadth rather than deep explorations of very specific issues; often we were most interested in understanding how institutions were shaping the questions and how they were exploring them, since many of these questions are far from resolution. Roundtable participants included representatives from academic libraries and information technology units from research institutions and liberal arts colleges, library associations, publishers, and aggregators/intermediaries.
