Promoting Information Resources To Students: Using Wordpress To Maintain Library Data Sets, Derek Stadler 2017 CUNY La Guardia Community College

Promoting Information Resources To Students: Using Wordpress To Maintain Library Data Sets, Derek Stadler

Publications and Research

Although it began as a blog tool, WordPress has grown into a complete content management system with thousands of interactive themes available. Since it uses the MySQL database management system, the open-source software suits the needs of library websites by aggregating a college library’s complete database inventory. Rather than update several HTML pages within a site when new vendors are added or a URL is changed, information from vendors can be maintained in a database table and then displayed to students, highlighting available resources and information. The presentation highlights the use of some simple WordPress plugins to manage many ...

Hashtag Recommendation With Topical Attention-Based Lstm, Yang Li, Ting Liu, Jing Jiang, Liang Zhang

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Microblogging services allow users to create hashtags to categorize their posts. In recent years,the task of recommending hashtags for microblogs has been given increasing attention. However,most of existing methods depend on hand-crafted features. Motivated by the successful use oflong short-term memory (LSTM) for many natural language processing tasks, in this paper, weadopt LSTM to learn the representation of a microblog post. Observing that hashtags indicatethe primary topics of microblog posts, we propose a novel attention-based LSTM model whichincorporates topic modeling into the LSTM architecture through an attention mechanism. Weevaluate our model using a large real-world dataset. Experimental results ...

Beyond Electric Dreams: Instituting A Dam Program Where It Is Needed But Maybe Not Wanted, Gregory Johnson

Central Plains Network for Digital Asset Management

Digital content is created every second of everyday and can be found everywhere. And the need to preserve this content, as well as the have it available to your students, patrons, or faculty and staff is at a premium while budgets for DAM dwindle. And while the need and want for DAM is often there, the drive and funds to make it a reality sometimes is not.

This presentation will cover one such DAM implementation project at a Fortune 500 company, beginning with the vetting and purchasing of a DAM system through implementation and show how the lessons from its ...

Common Management Gaps In The Life Cycle Of Digitized Objects, Jocelyn Wehr 2016 University of Kansas

Common Management Gaps In The Life Cycle Of Digitized Objects, Jocelyn Wehr

Central Plains Network for Digital Asset Management

Presented from the perspective of someone responsible for creating the digital objects that will eventually be included in a digital preservation program, this poster session will identify common issues that make the management and preservation of digital objects more challenging. Digital preservation needs to be talked about within the digitization workflow, because it takes a lot of work to produce the best digital objects possible. We are often focused on the immediate use of the digital objects and less focused on their long-term use. Even with best practices in mind, there is often an immediate need (patron orders, for example ...

Numbers, Numbers, Numbers—Is It Working?! Meaningful Measurement Of Digital Collections, Allison Ringness

Central Plains Network for Digital Asset Management

After a digital project is completed and made available online, the work is not over: digital projects managers must quantify the value of these digital collections. There are a plethora of tools to measure usage, but inferring value from usage requires careful interpretation of the data. After interpretation, the results must be communicated effectively to administrators. This poster will identify sources of digital collection use data, identify pitfalls in these sources, explore ways to derive meaning from use data, and suggest strategies for communicating value measurements to library administrators.

This poster presentation is the first 15 minutes of video with ...

Open Source, Modular Platforms, And The Challenge Of Fragmentation, Christopher S. Yoo 2016 University of Pennsylvania Law School

Open Source, Modular Platforms, And The Challenge Of Fragmentation, Christopher S. Yoo

Faculty Scholarship

Open source and modular platforms represent two powerful conceptual paradigms that have fundamentally transformed the software industry. While generally regarded complementary, the freedom inherent in open source rests in uneasy tension with the strict structural requirements required by modularity theory. In particular, third party providers can produce noncompliant components, and excessive experimentation can fragment the platform in ways that reduce its economic benefits for end users and app providers and force app providers to spend resources customizing their code for each variant. The classic solutions to these problems are to rely on some form of testing to ensure that the ...
