    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.

              "Assessment of Data Management Services at New England Region Resource Libraries"

              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.

                  SUSHI-Lite: Deploying SUSHI as a Lightweight Protocol for Exchanging Usage via Web Services (Draft for Comment)

                  Posted in Electronic Resources, Standards on July 17th, 2015

                  NISO has released SUSHI-Lite: Deploying SUSHI as a Lightweight Protocol for Exchanging Usage via Web Services, a draft for comment.

                  Here's an excerpt:

                  ANSI/NISO Z39.93-2014, also known as the SUSHI (Standardized Usage Statistics Harvesting Initiative) standard, is the key to automating the harvesting of COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources) usage statistics. SUSHI is a critical standard for librarians charged with measuring and monitoring the use of their online collections by eliminating hours of painstaking effort that would otherwise be spent locating, retrieving and loading usage reports. However, environmental requirements evolve and standards like SUSHI need to update to serve these requirements. The introduction of various applications into the marketplace which offer alternative metrics, the development of the COUNTER Journal Usage Factor, the flourishing of institutional repositories and need to capture usage from them, and continued progress towards open and integrated systems in general, have all made an impact on how usage is consumed and exchanged. There is now a need for more lightweight technologies that will allow smaller sets of usage data to be exchanged in real-time.
