Program description:

 

Academic libraries at institutions large and small have taken varied approaches to building campus support for open access. The recent adoption by several campuses of open access policies demonstrates awareness and support for open access, but achieving sustainable support for campus OA initiatives can be challenging. This panel will explore various issues surrounding the costs of building a sustainable scholcomm program including redirecting staffing resources to newer areas such as public access support, research networking services, research data,  institutional repositories, open educational resources, copyright education, and open publishing. The panel will explore ways to fund open access publishing by campus authors, as well as  implementing an open access collection development policy to more deliberately identify and add OA resources to library collections.

 

This panel features distinguished list of speakers: Lisa Macklin from Emory University, Kevin Smith from University of Kansas, and Claire Stewart from University of Minnesota.

Scholarly Communication Express

Sherri L. Barnes
Scholarly Communication Program Coordinator
University of California, Santa Barbara

Presentation abstract:

UCSB Library's Scholarly Communication Program just launched Scholarly Communication Express, a service that allows campus departments to request 15-minute presentations, to be delivered at department meetings, on trends in academic publishing.  Presentations topics include altmetrics; creating data management plans for the social sciences and another for the sciences; Creative Commons licenses; eScholarship, UC's institutional repository; EZID accounts; the NIH Public Access Policy; the UC Open Access Policy; and understanding article publication agreements.  Anyone on campus can use the online form at the easy to remember URL - http://www.library.ucsb.edu/15 - to request a presentation.  Personal, one-on-one, consultations can also be requested.  The service formalizes work the Scholarly Communication Group had already been doing informally, as a result of outreach and old fashion liaison work.  Having a flyer and a webpage makes it easier to market the service to a larger audience, track requests and measure our success.  The service is designed to reach an audience that rarely has time to think about, let alone change, the way they navigate the scholarly communication system and manage their intellectual property, but wants to know what's going on.

New England Collaborative Data Management Curriculum (NECDMC): An educational program and service for best practices in research data management (RDM)

Regina Raboin
Data Management Services Group Coordinator
Tufts University

Presentation abstract:

Driven by external and internal institutional needs surrounding research data management, new, revised and expanded roles for librarians have evolved and progressive services are being implemented to assist their faculty and institutions with meeting these needs.

One new role for librarians is to teach research data management (RDM) to undergraduate and graduate students and researchers. Five libraries in the New England region developed a unique online, case-based, modular course to teach RDM. Librarians across the US piloted and evaluated this course in different settings.

This presentation will discuss the development and piloting of the open source curriculum, New England Collaborative Data Management Curriculum (NECDMC), information on how the curriculum materials can be used and customized, along with how building institutional and regional partnerships leads to successful curriculum implementation, compliance with federal mandates and best practices in research data management will also be included. Additionally, the presentation will highlight recent "Train-the-Trainer" workshops and current/future pilots of the curriculum.

Metadata and Indicators for Open Access

Program co-sponsored by the ALCTS Metadata Interest Group and the ALCTS Scholarly Communications Interest Group

Presenter: Ben Showers, Head of Scholarly and Library Futures, Jisc

Title: Vocabularies for Open Access

Abstract: Open Access (OA) is an essential part of the scholarly communications ecosystem: From government mandates for publicly funded research through to the increasing reliance on open web searches to find and access scholarly content for students and researchers. For institutions and funding bodies, being able to track these research outputs is increasingly important, for institutional reputation, research enhancement and ensuring compliance with funding mandates. For students, researchers and the general public, it is important they are able to tell whether an article is available to read immediately, and, increasingly, what they can do with that article or content. The Jisc funded Vocabularies for Open Access (V4OA) project has been working with a wide variety of stakeholders such as NISO (National Information Standards Organisation), Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association (OASPA), Society of College and National University Libraries (SCONUL) and United Kingdom Council of Research Repositories (UKCoRR) to try and achieve a consensus on key vocabularies related to OA. The intention is firstly that V4OA to be, or form part of a standard or recognised international best practice on the description of open access research outputs and secondly that that these agreed vocabularies will be incorporated into key information systems thus allowing institutions and funders to capture and assess the nature and scale of Open Access ‘transactions’ across the scholarly landscape.

Presenter: Nettie Lagace, Associate Director for Programs, National Information Standards Organization (NISO)

Title: Update on NISO's Open Access Metadata and Indicators Working Group

Abstract: The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) Open Access Metadata and Indicators Working Group was chartered in March 2013 to develop protocols and mechanisms for transmitting the access status of scholarly works, such as individual articles. The intent of the group has been to develop a standardized set of metadata elements in order to share accessibility and potential re-use rights, to clarify an environment where it is currently very difficult for stakeholders (funders, authors, librarians and users) to determine whether a given article is compliant with conditions and policies. The area in which it has worked is a contentious one, with many differing opinions among stakeholders on what constitutes “open access.” These elements developed as part of the group’s recommendations that the elements be machine readable to enable systems to intake the data and re-use it in whatever form is appropriate for its own context.  The Working Group’s specification is expected to be finished with its public comment period and formally published in early 2014.

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.

Discussion Identifiers, Citation, and Linked Open Data as Part of the Scholarly Communications System: New Developments and New Developments from Old Work

by Sarah Shreeves on Wed, Jan 11, 2012 at 09:27 pm

Please join the ALCTS Scholarly Communications IG for a lively discussion on Identifiers, Citation, and Linked Open Data as Part of the Scholarly Communications System: New Developments and New Developments from Old Work

Please join the ALCTS Scholarly Communications IG for a lively discussion on Identifiers, Citation, and Linked Open Data as Part of the Scholarly Communications System: New Developments and New Developments from Old Work

Identifiers and the ability to reliably cite are key pieces of the underlying infrastructure for the scholarly communications system.With the growing importance of research data as a discoverable and citable piece of the scholarly record, two gaps exist. There has been no means for citing data, and no method for retrieving data from the historical scientific record. Efforts such as DataCite and EZID are addressing the first of these challenges, and the Smithsonian Library and the Biodiversity Heritage Library are looking towards the use of linked data to approach the second.

Join Joan Starr, EZID Service Manager and Manager of Strategic and Project Planning at the California Digital Library, Suzanne Pilsk, Metadata Librarian at the Smithsonian Institution Libraries, and Chris Freeland, Technical Director of the Biodiversity Heritage Library and Director of the Center for Biodiversity Informatics at the Missouri Botanical Garden as they present on these new developments and speculate on what the future scholarly record might look like.

If there is any time available at the end of the session, the IG will have an opportunity to discuss their responses to the RFIs for Public Access to Peer Reviewed Scholarly Publications and Digital Data Resulting from Federally Funded Research as well as responses to the Research Works Act.

Saturday January 21st
10:30-12:00
Dallas Convention Center D221
