PubMed Central— Publishing Trends of Journals Containing Articles by NIH-Funded Authors that are not Selected for the NLM Collection
Diane Boehr, Head, Cataloging and Metadata Management Section, National Library of Medicine

The NIH public access policy mandates that all articles containing NIH-funded research must be deposited into PubMed Central (PMC). NLM conducted a study of the characteristics of journals containing articles from NIH-funded research that were not selected for the NLM collections from August 2015-August 2016 and compared the results to a similar study done by NLM on journals from the first year of the public access program (2008-2009). While many similarities were found between the two studies, the 2008/2009 journals not acquired for the collection were generally outside the area of medicine.  In 2015/2016 there are many more articles being published in journals classified as primarily medical, but that come from publishers that do not follow best practices promoted by professional scholarly publishing organizations. Librarians should be aware of this trend and could help inform their researchers about journal best publishing practices.

 

Factors in Staff Satisfaction with E-Resource Troubleshooting Tools
Robert Heaton, Collection Management Librarian, Utah State University Libraries 

With the advent of cloud computing and “freemium” web applications, e-resource managers have unprecedented access to software tools that facilitate productivity, communication, and project management. One application of these tools is to the work of troubleshooting access issues. A growing body of literature addresses troubleshooting, including the tools that support its complex workflows. How these tools are selected and whether troubleshooting staff are happy with them are less fully developed in the literature. To identify the tools used and to answer these questions, a small-scale survey of the author’s peer institutions (midsize land-grant universities) was conducted in 2016. This presentation reports on the troubleshooting tools used at these institutions, the troubleshooting activities they are used for, how satisfied staff are with the tools in accomplishing those activities, and some of the factors predicted to correlate with staff satisfaction with the tools. The results are far from conclusive but are suggestive of future research questions.

Show Me the Data! How Libraries Support Research Data Management Plans and Data Sharing Requirements

Sunday, June 25, 2017, 3:00 - 4:00
McCormick Place, W184bc

Research data management is essential in the research enterprise. Many grant agencies now require data management plans to be included in grant proposals. Data management plans specify how research data will be stored and shared to ensure data is handled and preserved appropriately. Processes and options can be daunting, but they needn’t be. Hear how libraries are well-positioned to assist researchers with these requirements from librarians actively involved in data management initiatives at their institutions. 

Speakers:

Jacob Carlson
Research Data Services Manager, University of Michigan

Amy Buckland

 

Head, Research & Scholarship, University of Guelph

Event To the MOOC and Beyond! Adventures in Online Learning, Copyright and Massive Open Online Courses

by ALAConnect Helpdesk (staff) on Mon, Jun 8, 2015 at 11:31 am

As online learning proliferates, universities expect libraries to be more involved in licensing and copyright support. From Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) to distance learning, continuing studies, to flipped and blended courses, content selection that engages students and supports instruction is key. However, content can have rights restrictions that limit use in open environments. Learn from librarians in the trenches about the challenges and opportunities of online learning support.
