Towards Osgeo Best Practices For Scientific Software Citation: Integration Options For Persistent Identifiers Fn Osgeo Project Repositories, Peter Löwe, Markus Neteler, Jan Goebel, Marco Tullney

Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) Conference Proceedings

As a contribution to the currently ongoing larger effort to establish Open Science as best practices in academia, this article focuses on the Open Source and Open Access tiers of the Open Science triad and community software projects. The current situation of research software development and the need to recognize it as a significant contribution to science is introduced in relation to Open Science. The adoption of the Open Science paradigms occurs at different speeds and on different levels within the various fields of science and crosscutting software communities. This is paralleled by the emerging of an underlying futuresafe technical ...

Towards A Web-Enabled Geo-Sample Web: An Open Source Resource Registration And Management System For Connecting Geo-Samples To The Web, Anusuriya Devaraju, Jens Klump, Victor Tey, Simon Cox, Ryan Fraser

Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) Conference Proceedings

Within the earth sciences the curation and sharing of geo-samples is crucial to supporting reproducible research, in addition to extending the use of the samples in new research, and saving costs by avoiding sample loss and duplicating sampling activities. In the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), researchers gather various geo-samples as part of their field studies and collaborative projects. The diversity of the samples and their unsystematic management led ambiguous sample numbers, incomplete sample descriptions, and difficulties in finding the samples and their related data. These problems are also found in universities, research institutes and government agencies, which ...

Open Geoportal Lands To Europe: Use Cases And Improvements From Geodata@Polimi, Marcella Samakovlija, Francesco Bartoli

Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) Conference Proceedings

TeDOC is part of the University Library System, owns a Great collection of historical and current maps, paper and digital and provides at their distribution to teachers and students, as part of the educational and research activities of the Politecnico di Milano. We were searching for a tool able to find, display and download current and historical cartography and, after a few years of work, we have become the first Europeans to use Open Geoportal (https://github.com/OpenGeoportal ) like our working tool. The component to ingest the data to OGP has evolved considerably, allowing better integration with GeoServer and ...

本文通过问卷调查揭示中国法律检索教学领域的最新状况和发展趋势。该调查是作者2008年调查的继续,以期发现近年来国内该项教学的进展和变化。作者希望以中美法律图书馆员的视角对中国法律检索教学中诸如课程设置、教学方式、学分、考核评估等方面进行具体观察和分析;同时,对法律职业与法律教育者之间的反馈系统、学生对法律检索能力的认知、全国性指导标准等相关方面也有涉及。文章指出,当前,中国法律检索教学局限与机遇并存,特别是伴随信息与数据时代对社会经济文化的全面影响,中国法学教育改革适逢其时,法律检索教育也会不可避免地提到议事日程。而且,作者乐观地认为,中美法律图书馆员在其中的积极与促进作用也是无可替代的。

Librarians As Campus Partners: Supporting Culturally Responsive And Inclusive Curriculum, Kimberly D. Pendell, Robert Schroeder 2017 Portland State University

Librarians As Campus Partners: Supporting Culturally Responsive And Inclusive Curriculum, Kimberly D. Pendell, Robert Schroeder

Kimberly Pendell

Diversity and inclusion initiatives are expanding on campuses across the United States. These initiatives can take many forms, such as the hiring and retention of diverse faculty, student recruitment, and a thoughtful examination of pedagogy and course curriculum. As a librarian, you may be aware of these efforts, but perhaps not as directly involved as disciplinary faculty, particularly in regards to course curriculum development and redesign. How librarians can participate and support this work on our campuses is not always clear; however, we found fertile opportunities for librarian involvement and leadership.
