Please join the ALCTS Access to Continuing Resources Interest Group for our program at 2012 ALA Annual in Anaheim:

Opening Access for a New Era of Scholarly Publishing

Scholarly communication is going through enormous transformation due to the strong foothold of open access publishing and the desire of authors to retain more control over their copyrights and their works. Open access (OA) policies are becoming more widespread amongst academic and research institutions, enabling authors to deposit their articles in an open access repository. The University of Kansas (KU) was the first U.S. public university to adopt an OA policy for scholarly articles, and KU led the formation of the Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions (COAPI).  The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP) was founded by scholars over fifteen years ago as an open access, continually-updated, authoritative online encyclopedia funded through grants and institutional members. And, responding to the demand for more open access options, many publishers have expanded their open access journal offerings.  SAGE Open is one such journal, representing a broad-based open-access option for the social & behavioral sciences and the humanities. Q&A discussion will follow the presentations.

Speakers:

Ada Emmett, Scholarly Communications Program Head, University of Kansas Libraries

Julie Bobay, Associate Dean for Collection Development & Scholarly Communication at Indiana University

Jim Gilden, Editor of SAGE Open

Discussion ALCTS Access to Continuing Resources Interest Group: The Age of Discovery: Understanding Discovery Services, Federated Search, and Web Scale, Sunday, June 26, 2011, 4:00-5:30 pm, Hilton Riverside, Grand Salon C

 Panelists:

  • Abe Lederman, Founder and CTO, Deep Web Technologies
  • Chip Nilges, Vice President of Business Development, OCLC
  • Donald Gilstrap, Dean of University Libraries, Wichita State University
  • Rachel Vacek, Head of Web Services, University of Houston Libraries 

Findability, discovery services, federated search, web scale—ways to discover content are increasing all the time, but how do we discover which discovery mechanism is appropriate? Join us to learn more about the discovery landscape. When is it appropriate to use federated search over a discovery service? How does this differ by type of researcher? What kinds of resources should be included in discovery tools? Learn discovery implementation from two librarians in the trenches; learn about “web scale” and how federated search and discovery are evolving from the experts; and how the rest of us can sort out this tangle of access methods!

Discussion Continuing Resources Interest Group Midwinter 2011 Panel

by Anneliese Taylor on Tue, Jan 4, 2011 at 05:35 pm

Please join the ALCTS Access to Continuing Resources Interest Group for our program at ALA Midwinter.

 Expanding and Understanding Access Options: From Open Access to Patron Driven to Article Rental

Sunday, January 9, 2011, 4:00-5:30 pm, San Diego Convention Center, Room 02

Please join the ALCTS Access to Continuing Resources Interest Group for our program at ALA Midwinter.

 Expanding and Understanding Access Options: From Open Access to Patron Driven to Article Rental

Sunday, January 9, 2011, 4:00-5:30 pm, San Diego Convention Center, Room 02

 When every library budget dollar must count, one access option definitely does not fit all. Librarians and publishers must consider new methods to get researchers the content they need. Join us to learn about some newer access options that might better fit your library needs. Some universities now require faculty to publish in Open Access journals, but how does this shift affect their libraries? Bob Schatz (BioMed Central, Springer) will explain how your library can play its part and how the new SpringerOpen journals expand publication options to researchers across more fields than ever before. Patron-driven purchasing is another access option that promises to match eBook purchases with precise researcher/student needs and to ensure that library purchases will not sit unused on the virtual shelf. What are the pros and cons of such an agreement? Kari Paulson (EBL) will detail this new “on-demand” acquisition option. Finally, article rental offers varying access options that tailor-fit content acquisition to researcher needs. How might unaffiliated researchers secure access to individual articles? Where might temporary access to content be procured? Bill Park (DeepDyve) will reveal how individuals and libraries can access valuable content through this new model and what advanced search options are possible though growing publisher collaborations.

 The panelists are:

 Bob Schatz

North American Sales Manager, BioMed Central, http://www.biomedcentral.com/

 Kari Paulson

President, EBL - Ebook Library, http://www.eblib.com/

 Bill Park

CEO, DeepDyve, http://www.deepdyve.com/

 For more information please contact group chair Heather Staines, (heather.staines@springer.com), or vice-chair Anneliese Taylor (anneliese.taylor@ucsf.edu).  See you in San Diego!

Re-thinking library business model for licensed digital contents under mobile and cloud computing

Exponential growth of mobile devices require libraries, vendors and publishers to re-think how to enhance user experience with library licensed digital collections on the go. As Google Editions allows the physical download of the digital into something tangible, challenging our notion of "ownership", how are we going to rewrite business rules?  Come and hear our panelists' perspectives on this issue and possible future trends:

Melissa Blaney, Publications Division Lead Web Analyst, American Chemical Society.
Chris Palma, Strategic Partner Development Manager, Google.
Michael Porter, Communications Manager, WebJunction.
