We will feature two presentations.

Pilots to Program: UC San Diego Research Data Curation Pilots and the Library Research Data Curation Program
Mary Linn Bergstrom
UC San Diego
In the spring of 2011, the UC San Diego Research Cyberinfrastructure (RCI) Implementation Team invited campus researchers and research teams to participate in a Research Curation and Data Management Pilot program. The projects were chosen based on a number of criteria:how they represented the range of campus research and the various services they needed. The pilot process began in Sept 2011 and will be completed in early 2014.
Participants received services: assistance with the creation of metadata to make data discoverable and available for future re-use; ingest of data into the San Diego Supercomputer Center’s storage system; ingest of datasets and digital objects into the Library’s Digital Asset Management Systems (DAMS) for long-term access and discovery; movement of data into Chronopolis; data object identifier services; and training classes.
Implementation details of the services and the new Research Data Curation Program (RDCP) created at the Library based on the pilots will be discussed. RDCP supports data lifecycle management and will focus on aspects of contemporary scholarship: data creation and storage, description and metadata creation, citation and publication, and long-term preservation and access. The RDCP will provide services campus users can select to meet their needs. It will also provide support for data management requirements from national funding agencies.
Data Services as Information Services: or, Old Wine, New Bottle
Ivey Glendon and Michele Claibourn
University of Virginia Library
The currency of data in scholarly research is on the rise. The data supporting research across all academic disciplines is subject to the norms and requirements for access and sharing that has characterized the research output itself. In July 2013 the University of Virginia Library created a new library service to support data-intensive research initiatives. Research Data Services (RDS) is dedicated to the collaborative collection, management, use, and preservation of data across the research lifecycle, and offers coordinated support services and expertise for data-intensive research and teaching.
The growth of data-oriented research and of publicly-available datasets demands data literacy across the institution. We will relay how the RDS team serve and interact with the university research enterprise. Composed of data librarians charged with data acquisitions and discovery, specialists in statistical analysis and GIS engaged with training in the use of quantitative and spatial data, metadata and data management experts providing guidance and expertise on the creation of data documentation for preservation and dissemination, and digital media technologists supporting training to capture and transform data, the team supports researchers throughout the research data lifecycle.
We will discuss our organization – seeding data services throughout the library rather than concentrating them into a single unit – as well as the challenges we’ve encountered in gaining recognition within the university as a voice in the developing discussion around quantitative research at UVa and a service provider in the rapidly evolving research ecosystem.

The presentations will be followed by a brief business meeting.

Presentation abstract:

In the spring of 2011, the UC San Diego Research Cyberinfrastructure (RCI) Implementation Team invited campus researchers and research teams to participate in a Research Curation and Data Management Pilot program. More than two dozen applications were received and the RCI Oversight Committee selected five curation-intensive projects. These projects were chosen based on a number of criteria, including how they represented the range of campus research and the various services they needed. The pilot process commenced in September 2011 and will be completed in early 2014. Extensive lessons learned from the pilots were used in the design and implementation of a permanent Research Data Curation Program in the UC San Diego Library.

Participants in the pilot program received services including: assistance with the creation of metadata to make data discoverable and available for future re-use; ingest of data into the San Diego Supercomputer Center’s (SDSC) storage system; ingest of datasets and digital objects into the Library’s Digital Asset Management Systems (DAMS) for long-term access and discovery; movement of data into Chronopolis; data object identifier services; and training classes.

In this presentation, implementation details of these services will be discussed, as well as lessons learned. The new Research Data Curation Program that has been created at the UC San Diego Library, based on these pilots, will be described. The Program supports data lifecycle management, one of the core strategic areas for the Library. The Program will focus on many aspects of contemporary scholarship, including data creation and storage, description and metadata creation, citation and publication, and long-term preservation and access. The Research Data Curation Program will provide a suite of services that campus users can select from to meet their needs. The Program will also provide support for data management requirements from national funding agencies.

Ivey and Michele will present on a new Research Data Services initiative at the University of Virginia Library.

Presentation abstract:

The currency of data in scholarly research is on the rise, and the data supporting research across all academic disciplines is increasingly subject to the norms and requirements for access and sharing that has long characterized the research output itself. In response to this shift, in July 2013 the University of Virginia Library announced the creation of a new library service to support data-intensive research initiatives at the University of Virginia. The new team, Research Data Services, is dedicated to the collaborative collection, management, use, and preservation of data across the research lifecycle, and offers coordinated support services and expertise for data-intensive research and teaching.

The growth of data-oriented research and of publicly-available datasets demands even greater data literacy across the institution. This presentation will relay how the Research Data Services team in the library serve and interact with the university research enterprise. Composed of data librarians charged with data acquisitions and discovery, specialists in statistical analysis and GIS engaged with training in the use of quantitative and spatial data, metadata and data management experts providing guidance and expertise on the creation of data documentation for preservation and dissemination, and digital media technologists supporting training in the use of media technologies to capture and transform data, the team supports researchers throughout the research data lifecycle.

We will discuss our approach to organization – seeding data services throughout the library rather than concentrating them into a single unit – as well as the challenges we’ve encountered in gaining recognition within the university as a voice in the developing discussion around quantitative research at UVa and a service provider in the rapidly evolving research ecosystem.

The Library Publishing Coalition Project: Building Capacity for an Emerging Area of Library Service Provision

Charles Watkinson
Executive Group, Library Publishing Coalition
Director, Purdue University Press
Head of Scholarly Publishing Services, Purdue Libraries

The Library Publishing Coalition Project is a two year program that began in January 2013 to build a collaborative framework to support the development of library publishing services in academic libraries. In 2012 a project sponsored by IMLS, "Library Publishing Services: Strategies for Success," reported that 55% of academic libraries of all sizes were either developing or implementing library services (including 79% of ARL libraries). It identified major needs for the development of best practices, collaboration to create community-based resources, and formalization of skills and training. The LPC project represents the response of a group of over fifty North American libraries to these recommendations. Programs currently under development include the publication of a directory of library publishing programs, the first of its kind; the organization of an annual meeting, to be first held in 2014; the creation of an online repository for sharing useful publishing tools, workflows, and documents; and the deployment of a targeted research agenda. This presentation will give an overview of library publishing activities as currently understood, describe how the LPC project fits into this landscape, and provide an update on progress so far. Plenty of time will be left for feedback and discussion.

The presentations will be followed by a brief business meeting.

eScholarship PLUS: Sustaining Open Access Scholarly Publishing Efforts through POD and eBook sales at the University of California

Justin Gonder, eScholarship Operations Coordinator, California Digital Library

For over ten years, UC faculty and students have increased the
exposure of their scholarly output with the eScholarship Open Access
publishing platform and repository tools. With our new eScholarship
PLUS program, editors of UC-affiliated journals and book series can
add print-on-demand and eBook services with full retail and global
distribution support to their scholarly publishing toolkit.
eScholarship PLUS provides journals and publishing units with an
opportunity to recover some of the costs associated with traditional
open access publishing, while simultaneously removing the upfront
costs and logistical challenges of managing large print runs. Most
importantly, editors can now focus on content (rather than
distribution) and can enable readers to access that content in
whichever format they prefer. This brief presentation will describe
the eScholarship PLUS program in more detail, including: business
models, vendor partnerships and cross-platform technical integration.
Sample finished products (both digital and print) will also be
available for review.

SCOAP3

Ann Okerson, Senior Advisor on Electronic Strategies, Center for Research Libraries
Tom Sanville, Director of Licensing and Strategic Partnerships, LYRASIS

The global SCOAP3 project, which aims to convert peer reviewed High
Energy Physics journals to an open access model, achieved a number of
milestones in the past year.  Beginning in late 2012, libraries that
had previously submitted Expressions of Interest were asked to
re-commit to the project, and - in order to meet the US Goal of $3.5M
(based on proportion of HEP published papers in peer reviewed
journals) - SCOAP3 also reached out to a number of potential new
library participants.  Once libraries signal their intent to
participate, there are several "next steps," which include identifying
the exact HEP journals to which they subscribe, by whatever means
(individual subscription all the way to consortial "big deal"),
working with SCOAP3 to perform the "re-direct" calculations, and
formally agreeing to be part of the project.  These steps are on a
short timeline, given the "go-live" date of 1 January 2014.

CERN (Switzerland) hosts and manages this project for the benefit of
SCOAP3.  An international Steering Committee has been working with
CERN leadership over the past 1.5 years to realize this initiative.
And journal publishers are a key part of the project, having submitted
their proposals to the 2012 Invitation to Tender.  SCOAP3 also engages
libraries and funders worldwide, through a "National Contacts"
program.  In the US, LYRASIS was selected to be the National Contact
Organization; the main National Contact individual for this part of
the process is Ann Okerson, working with LYRASIS's Tom Sanville.  This
session will provide a brief overview of SCOAP3, key dates and
deliverables, structures, progress to date, and future prospects.

 

The presentations will be followed by a brief business meeting.

Participate in Open Access Week with help from ACRL

http://www.acrl.ala.org/acrlinsider/archives/6060

 

Let ACRL’s Scholarly Communication Toolkit help you prepare to lead events on your campus during Open Access Week, October 22-28, 2012. Open Access Week , a global event organized by SPARC, is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.

 

The ACRL Scholarly Communication Toolkit can help you get involved and has recently been updated. Adapt and use materials like updated handouts and presentations from the ACRL Scholarly Communication Road Show. Learn about the launch of SCOAP3 and the participating publishers and journals. Watch Peter Suber’s recent discussion of open access and its future. Find out fair use best practices from new videos.

 

Let this valuable resource support you with scholarly communication discussions inside the library and for outreach programs to faculty and administrators. The ACRL Scholarly Communication Toolkit provides context and background by summarizing key issues to offer quick, basic information on scholarly communication topics. It also links to examples of specific tools, including handouts, presentation templates and videos for librarians to adapt and use on their own campuses.

 

Get involved. Participating in Open Access Week can be as simple or involved as you like. It can also be a chance to let your imagination have full rein and come up with something more ambitious, wacky, fun. ACRL has a firm commitment , per its strategic plan, to support  librarians as they work accelerate the transition to a more open system of scholarship. Be part of the movement to influence scholarly publishing policies and practices toward a more open system.
