ERIC Users Committee MidWinter Meeting Minutes 

January 25, 2017 

 

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.

Approval of notes from prior meeting

2014 ALA Annual Committee Meeting Notes from July 10, 2014 were approved.

Agenda items

  I. Welcome & introductions

  • Those who attended the meeting were introduced.
  • Members attending: Katherine Farmer, co-chair; Tiffany Baglier, co-chair; Anne Buchanan; Todd Shipman; Lucinda Rush; Mary Cassner; Paula Roper
  • Guests: Erin Pollard, ERIC Project Manager; Pamela Tripp-Melby, Director of National Education Library

  II. Call for additions/ revisions to the agenda

  • No items were added to the agenda.

  III. Approval of the minutes

  • Minutes from the Annual Meeting were approved.

  IV. ERIC Update

  • Source selection
    • ERIC reviews new sources to be included in ERIC twice a year (late November and May).
    • New sources are recommended to ERIC by users and publishers. To recommend a source, email the name and the publisher’s website link to ERICRequests@ed.gov.
    • Typically, 250 new sources are reviewed per cycle with approximately half accepted.
    • ERIC has been focusing on increasing the number of peer-reviewed, full-text materials.
    • The number of new sources reviewed each cycle varies. – goal is to index 4,000 records a month and index new content within 30 days of being available to ERIC. This creates challenges in scheduling because they do not want to overcommit their resources.
  • Thesaurus update
    • There will be a thesaurus update this fall. The proposed plan includes:
      • Recommendations for additional descriptors and synonyms to the Thesaurus.
      • Recommendations for changes to existing terms in the Thesaurus.
      • Assessment of the need for future changes to improve the Thesaurus and maximize its usability by the ERIC community.
      • Feedback about ERIC Thesaurus update will be solicited. Watch for an email asking for help to come out in the next week or so.
      • ERIC will be hosting a webinar in July on the Thesaurus that will provide more information about the update process.
  • Selection policy
    • Next Selection Policy update will be in January 2016.
    • ERIC expects to make a major change – they are exploring ways to assign peer-reviewed status to non-journals.
    • This approach will have several advantages, as well as possible disadvantages. ERIC plans to post the draft policy this summer for content and get as much user feedback as possible.
  • Topic summaries
    • ERIC is currently working on 15 topic summaries. These are going to be Wikipedia like summaries designed to give high level overviews on different topics.
    • The topic summaries are written by in-house researchers and subject matter experts and targeted for a college freshman reading level.
    • Under law, summaries are required to be peer-reviewed. ERIC really values the peer review process and thinks it will strengthen the document. Unfortunately, peer-review takes time.
    • They hope to unveil the first topic summary this spring and the rest by the end of this year or early next year.
    • Once several of the topic summaries are ready, ERIC Topic pages providing resources by topic will be unveiled.
  • New enhancements on the website
    • A citation management tool has been requested by many users; they want the ability to export their citations to RefWorks and EndNote. ERIC is trying to find a way for users to export citations to any commercial citation manager. They are working to build a tool similar to the one used by the NIH’s PubMed database and hope to release it later this year.
    • Next year, in 2016, ERIC hopes to unveil an API (Application Program Interface) as their source of data delivery. The advantage of this tool is that it will allow users to have real time access to ERIC, instead of having to wait until the monthly files are posted. This will also allow users to build apps.
    • Once an API is in place, ERIC hopes to provide publishers with information about how frequently materials are downloaded. Many publishers have said they will be willing to allow ERIC to display their full text once this capability is created.
    • New video on Online Submission search tips to be coming live in the next week or two.
  • Implementing the public access policy
    • The Department of Education and other federal agencies are in the process of getting their public access plans approved and posted.
    • To help increase communication about the policy, IES is taking a multi-pronged approach to contact the community.
      • They will be communicating with Grantees and Contractors impacted by this policy at their annual meetings.
      • They will be producing videos explaining the policies and how to work with publishers around these issues. Look for more information about these this fall.
      • There will be FAQs section for grantees on the ERIC website.

   V. Questions/ comments from the committee

  • How are thesaurus terms decided?
    • The July webinar will help answer this, but ERIC experts on the thesaurus will be working with collected user feedback to improve the thesaurus. Any thesaurus feedback is best submitted in writing.
  • Is the ERIC website’s ‘contact us’ link the place to submit issues with records?
    • Any questions on ERIC, including issues with records, should be submitted through the ‘contact us’ link.
  • ERIC will talk more about Department of Education policy and non-journal peer-review policy at ALA Annual.

  VI. Possible future project

  • Katherine Farmer suggested the committee work on creating an ERIC toolkit somewhere on the EBSS website as a resource for education librarians.
    • Voted on project.
    • Passed unanimously.

  VII. Other business

  • Preliminary committee meeting times for annual release by EBSS.
    • All-committees meeting scheduled Saturday, June 27 at 8:30am and 10am.
    • ERIC Presentation scheduled Sunday, June 28 at 1pm.
