Event ALCTS e-Forum: Life-cycle Management of Digital Assets

by Jeremy Myntti on Mon, Mar 20, 2017 at 10:25 am

ALCTS e-Forum: Life-cycle Management of Digital Assets

ALCTS e-Forum: Life-cycle Management of Digital Assets

April 18-19, 2017

 

Moderated by Ian Bogus and Roger Smith

 

Please join us for an e-forum discussion. It’s free and open to everyone!

Registration information is at the end of the message.

 

Each day, discussion begins and ends at:

Pacific: 7 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Mountain: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Central: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Eastern: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

 

Preserving digital assets has become a part of everyday activities at libraries big and small, but for many it is an intimidating concept. While the tools and language may be different, the basic theories and philosophies are the same as what libraries have been doing for paper, parchment, magnetic media, and plastics. Beginning with assessment, we will consider digitization, description, management and preservation standards and best practices. This is an opportunity to see what how other institutions are achieving their goals as well as ask the questions that you were always too afraid to ask.

 

Moderators

Ian Bogus is the MacDonald Curator of Preservation at the University of Pennsylvania where he launched the Libraries’ first system-wide preservation and conservation program. He is provides leadership for the life-cycle management of physical and digital collections. Penn Libraries’ nascent digital repository is built on a Fedora/Hydra framework.

 

Roger Smith is the Director of the Digital Library Development Program (DLDP), developing procedures and workflow for library digital collections. UC San Diego Library Digital Collections are preserved in Chronopolis, a TRAC certified preservation environment. UC San Diego Library and Chronopolis are participants in the Digital Preservation Network (DPN) initiative.

What Is an e-Forum?

An ALCTS e-forum provides an opportunity for librarians to discuss matters of interest, led by a moderator, through the e-forum discussion list. The e-forum discussion list works like an email listserv: register your email address with the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate with other participants through an email discussion. Most e-forums last two to three days. Registration is necessary to participate, but it's free.

 

For information about upcoming e-forums, please visit http://www.ala.org/alcts/confevents/upcoming/e-forum

 

How to Register

You must register your email address to subscribe to or access an electronic discussion list on ALA's Mailing List Service. Once you have registered for one e-forum, you do not need to register again, unless you choose to leave the list. Find instructions for subscribing and unsubscribing online.

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

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.

 

On behalf of the ALCTS Scholarly Communication Interest Group

Violeta Ilik, Chair

Michael Priehs, Vice-Chair
