Strategic Planning For Sustaining User-Generated Content In Digital Collections, Cory K. Lampert, Su Kim Chung
Library Faculty Presentations
• Should there be an overarching philosophy for user-generated content in the organization?
• Who in the management or leadership determines this philosophy or guides the organization to come up with a shared vision?
•What technical considerations are there for these projects? Are there staff that need to be consulted for software choices and technical customization?
•Is there are point person for the project and does this person have the authority and appropriate expertise to moderate content and respond to user’s contributions?

In September 2008 SanDisk announced it would begin making music available for purchase on its microSD flash memory card format.1 The audio files on a slotMusic card are in MP3 format and are offered free of any digital rights management controls. In addition to containing an "album's" worth of music (i.e., a slotMusic release generally corresponds to a collection of music issued on other formats such as compact disc), a typical slotMusic card may come pre-loaded with images, video, text, MIDI files, etc. Each card contains 1 GB of memory (well more than what is required for ...
Interactive Online Forms, 2010 Syracuse University
Interactive Online Forms, Ashley Nelson-Hornstein
Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects
The use of interactive online forms can improve the efficiency of data management processes in any organization, particularly ones that rely on the collection of large amounts of data. The work of my capstone project sought to leverage technologies available in the open source community to improve the work-flow of one such organization, the Honors program at Syracuse University. As a result, I focused on transforming the often used paper civic engagement form into an autonomous electronic process. By appropriately following the stages of the systems development life cycle, a systematic approach that focused on planning and security conscious execution ...

Digitalcommons@Ilr: Institutional Repository Marketing And Development At The Catherwood Library, Ilr School, Cornell University, Mary J. Newhart, Suzanne A. Cohen, James D. Delrosso
Articles and Chapters
[Excerpt] DigitalCommons@ILR is a multipurpose institutional repository (IR) for scholarship produced by the faculty in the Industrial and Labor Relations School (ILR) at Cornell University. Although it shares this purpose with many IRs, DigitalCommons@ILR sets itself apart in a number of ways. First, it was designed to function not only as a collection of faculty scholarly works but also as a subject-based IR for workplace-related information. Furthermore, unlike many IRs, it has been successfully integrated into the organization, receiving support from the school's administration and strong uptake from the faculty. Finally, it has routinely pushed the accepted ...
Archival Information Retrieval: Searching For Evidence In The Relationships Between Documents, 2010 Iowa State University
Archival Information Retrieval: Searching For Evidence In The Relationships Between Documents, Kimberly D. Anderson
Kimberly D. Anderson
Although archivists have engaged in analog information retrieval (IR) for many decades, automated archival IR is relatively unexamined in either IR or archival literature. The strength of primary source materials lies in their ability to support inference and deduction through the provision of evidence, through both content and context of documents. The hierarchical and spatial structures of archival records may be leveraged in the search for retrieving this kind of relational evidence. The bulk of work done on archival IR has used term matching as the means of retrieval. This is inadequate for research that is concerned with the relationships ...
[Rd] Prism Library: Patient Registry Item Specifications And Metadata For Rare Diseases, 2010 University of South Florida
[Rd] Prism Library: Patient Registry Item Specifications And Metadata For Rare Diseases, Rachel L. Richesson, Denise Shereff, James E. Andrews
School of Information Faculty Publications
Patient registries are important for understanding the causes and origins of rare diseases and estimating their impact; and they may prove critical developing new diagnostics and therapeutics. This paper introduces the [RD] PRISM resource , an NIH-funded project to develop a library of standardized question and answer sets to support rare disease research. The paper presents a project case-driven plan for creating a new registry using questions from an existing related registry, revising and expanding an existing registry, and showing interoperability of data collected from different registries and data sources. Each of the use cases involves the retrieval of indexed questions ...
Evolving In Collaboration: Electronic Thesis And Dissertation Workflows In North Carolina, 2010 University of North Carolina at Greensboro
Evolving In Collaboration: Electronic Thesis And Dissertation Workflows In North Carolina, Mary G. Early, Anne Marie Taber
Thirty-seven colleges and universities in North Carolina offer advanced degrees, and most require a thesis or dissertation. The websites of thirteen (35%) indicate they accept or require electronic submission of dissertations and/or theses (ETD). How do these institutions handle the interdepartmental communication and collaboration needs of ETD programs? To begin answering this question, this study examines current practices among ETD administrators in North Carolina and in current national literature, paying special attention to communication, collaboration, workflows, and divisions of labor. The literature review surveys current (since 2003) library and higher education articles on topics related to collaboration, workflows, and ...

A New Way To Manage Uncataloged Materials: A Case Study From Moving The University Of Nevada, Reno’S Federal Depository Collection, 2010 University of Nevada, Reno
A New Way To Manage Uncataloged Materials: A Case Study From Moving The University Of Nevada, Reno’S Federal Depository Collection, Amalia Beisler, Patrick P. Ragains
In 2008, the University of Nevada, Reno Library moved into a new building, the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center. As part of this move, approximately half of the library’s print collections were moved into the building’s automated storage and retrieval system; a substantial portion of these materials were federal depository materials. This case study describes how cataloging and government documents staff at the University of Nevada, Reno collaborated to achieve intellectual and physical control over a huge, largely uncataloged government documents collection destined for automated storage. More than 9,000 linear feet of uncataloged government documents had to be placed ...
Skos And The Semantic Web: Knowledge Organization, Metadata, And Interoperability, 2010 University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences
Skos And The Semantic Web: Knowledge Organization, Metadata, And Interoperability, Eric A. Robinson
The Simplified Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) is a Semantic Web framework, based on the Resource Description Framework (RDF) for thesauri, classification schemes and simple ontologies. It allows for machine-actionable description of the structure of these knowledge organization systems (KOS) and provides an excellent tool for addressing interoperability and vocabulary control problems inherent to the rapidly expanding information environment of the Web. This paper discusses the foundations of the SKOS framework and reviews the literature on a variety of SKOS implementations. The limitations of SKOS that have been revealed through its broad application are addressed with brief attention to the proposed ...
Moving Authority Control From Manual To Automated, 2010 Brigham Young University
Moving Authority Control From Manual To Automated, Shannon Hoffman
Authority control is very expensive; however, a controlled vocabulary is important for the users of a library catalog. Ways must be found to do authority control faster, cheaper, and better if we are to maintain a high-quality library catalog.
