ERIC Users Committee MidWinter Meeting Minutes

ERIC Users Committee MidWinter Meeting Minutes 

January 25, 2017 

 

I. Welcome 

Attendees: Katherine Farmer, Tiffany Baglier, Paul Belloni, Beverly Pajer, Laura Bonella, Margaret Brown-Salazar, Christina Cicchetti, Yvonne Roux, Barbara Alderman, Todd Shipman 

 

II. Call for Additions to the Agenda 

 

III. Approval of Annual Meeting Minutes - minutes have been approved. 

IV. ERIC Update 

  • ERIC provided an update on the new features added to the ERIC database.   

  • They added how to filter by location and  laws. 

  • They have added the ability to search by ORCID ID. You can see the list of everything they have published by clicking on the name. 

  • What Works Clearinghouse link that has been added to ERIC. If WWC has a study that has been reviewed, New features have been added to the studies to see its improvement factors and the characteristics of the population studied. IES has always been collecting the data.  IES has just the ability to see the information.  

  • If a publication is contracted funded, there are now links from the grant number. If you click on the grant number, you will be directed to information about the grant. This is the development process. 

  • IES publications are now in the database with links to the original content on the IES website.  

  • All of the new fields and information is available to vendors in the download section. EBSCO is working on adding to the database.  They have had access to the new information for two weeks. 

  • Notes Section provides access to the latest infographic. 

  • Coming - Webinar on how information gets into ERIC in late March. They will have people who have submitted previously to be part of the panel.  

V. Questions from the Committee 

  • Questions - Video link to the webinar that was last week will be posted within 90 days of the webinar. 

  • Question about worries about changes due to the new administration: IES is independent from the govt. It is written into the budgeting authority.  So they are not concerned at this point. They are not under the talking embargo that exists for other departments as of this moment. They are still approved for ALA at this moment. 

  • What is ERIC’s twitter account? @ERICinfo is the tweet address.  They are still tweeting. 

  • Has there been any progress on eric.ed.gov with its ability to use our local link resolver for full text access (to those items not available ft on ERIC)? It is still on our to-do list. Our main priority of the past 6 months was getting the new fields up. We are now turning our attention toward an API and seeing how to do a link resolver in a way that complies with federal policy. 

VI. Web Archiving Initiative  

VII. ERIC Project 

  • The committee outlined the navigation tabs for the libguide and decided on what should be on each tab.  

  • Katherine will work creating the page and seek approval of the group through a Google Document of the text for a box from the committee before adding it to the page. 

  • Goal is to debut the LibGuide by June 2017.  

VIII. ALA Annual Meeting 

i. All Committees Meeting on Saturday, June 24. Time and Location: TBA

Please note in particular the section on the structure for the "ALA Jury." 

If you have comments, additions, concerns, please post here. 

I have also posted the revised rubric, to be used by all juries.  We are working on guidelines for individuals/groups submitting "contributed program" proposals, building on similar guidelines in use by several of the ALA Divisions.

We are excited to announce a special panel discussion at 2017 ALA Midwinter Meeting organized by the ALCTS Scholarly Communication Interest Group.

 

Date and time: 6/24/2017 from 1:00-2:30PM 

Where: TBD

Chicago, Illinois 

 

Title: Understanding Academic Research: Free and Low-Cost Tools & Workflows

 

Participants:

Mike Taylor

Head of Metrics Development, Digital Science

 

William Gunn

Director of Scholarly Communications, Mendeley

 

Karen Gutzman

Impact and Evaluation Librarian, Galter Health Sciences Library

Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

 

Moderator:

 

Kristi Homes

Director, Galter Health Sciences Library

Director of Evaluation, Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute

 

Program description:

Much of the academic research world remains available only to institutions that are able to pay for subscriptions to specific tools and resources. However, over the last few years, vendors, funders, and other organizations have developed a number of free and low-cost tools targeted to a range of stakeholders. These tools and resources help support users inside and beyond institutions to discover, understand and use academic research.

 

This panel will highlight a number of favorite free and low-cost tools. Panelists will offer diverse perspectives, including best practices, real-life examples, and information on how you can use the tools to support your patrons as they discover, understand and use academic research. Resources to be presented include: Altmetric, ORCID, Mendeley, Google Scholar, Figshare, Overleaf, iCite, RePORTER, and more. Finally, the panel will publish an engaging poster with their top tips, and will make these posters available to attendees at their panel.
