Closing The Gap? Curating Bepress Metadata For Share, Emily Stenberg, Lisa Palmer, Joanne Paterson, Wendy Robertson

Digital Commons - Heartland User Group + IR Day

The goal of the SHARE initiative, a partnership between the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the Center for Open Science (COS), is to build a “free, open, data set about research and scholarly activities across their life cycle.” As of August 2017, 161 repositories and publishers have made metadata available to SHARE for harvesting, and the aggregated data set is available for searching. Many metadata providers are institutional repositories utilizing the bepress Digital Commons platform whose metadata is harvested through the OAI-PMH (Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting) protocol for repository interoperability. A group of Digital Commons repository ...

Digital Commons - Heartland User Group + IR Day

From 2005 through 2017, I have managed the University of Nebraska's Digital Commons institutional repository. This presentation covers some past, present, and future concerns: Why Nebraska? Our mission. Our history. Our content and usage. Our assets. Our competition. Our allies. Our obstacles. Our services. Our strategies. Our risks and rewards. Our relations with publishers. Order vs. chaos. The information universe. Miracles and disruption.

Case Study - A Call To Action: Migrating The Reveille To Digital Commons, Elizabeth Chance, Jennifer Sauer

Digital Commons - Heartland User Group + IR Day

Like many institutions, Forsyth Digital Collections presents their content on more than one platform. Since the acquisition of Digital Commons and the launch of the FHSU Scholars Repository in January 2016, there has been an institutional effort to determine which platform is best suited to displaying existing content. Beginning in 2009, the FHSU Reveille Yearbooks collection had been hosted in CONTENTdm. The user experience for this collection left much to be desired. In 2014 additional effort was put into improving the user experience in CONTENTdm for this collection. However, in the spring of 2017 it was determined that the Reveille ...

The Evolution, Approval And Implementation Of The U.S. Geological Survey Science Data Lifecycle Model, John L. Faundeen, Vivian B. Hutchison

Journal of eScience Librarianship

This paper details how the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Community for Data Integration (CDI) Data Management Working Group developed a Science Data Lifecycle Model, and the role the Model plays in shaping agency-wide policies and data management applications. Starting with an extensive literature review of existing data lifecycle models, representatives from various backgrounds in USGS attended a two-day meeting where the basic elements for the Science Data Lifecycle Model were determined. Refinements and reviews spanned two years, leading to finalization of the model and documentation in a formal agency publication1.

The Model serves as a critical framework for ...


How Automated Workflows Helped Us Ingest 600 Faculty Publications In Three Months In Lmu’S Institutional Repository!, Shilpa Rele, Jessea Young 2017 Loyola Marymount University

How Automated Workflows Helped Us Ingest 600 Faculty Publications In Three Months In Lmu’S Institutional Repository!, Shilpa Rele, Jessea Young

Shilpa Rele

Conducting copyright clearance and ingesting appropriate versions of faculty publications can be a labor intensive and time consuming process. At Loyola Marymount University (LMU), a medium-size, private institution, the Digital Library Program (DLP) began exploring and experimenting with automated processes to manage copyright clearance and ingest workflows with regards to faculty publications. The goal of such experimentation was to increase efficiency in our processes to ingest more faculty publications in LMU's institutional repository. This session will outline our workflows and tools used to manage the workflows, highlight some of the issues and challenges we experienced during this exploratory process ...

Journal Evaluation Tool, Shilpa Rele, Marie Kennedy, Nataly Blas

Shilpa Rele

The changing mechanisms of scholarly publishing may make it difficult for you to determine where to publish the results of your research or creative works. In order to assist you in making the best decisions for your work, and to avoid journals that may not be credible, the William H. Hannon Library has developed a rubric for the evaluation of journals. Our focus during the development of this tool was specifically to address the concerns of our Loyola Marymount University faculty about Open Access journals, but this rubric may be applied more broadly to any kind of journal.

With the ability to create uniquely branded groups of guides limited to specific content creators and audiences, LibGuides CMS significantly expands the flexibility of the LibGuides platform to support libraries’ content management needs. During this session, presenters will share a series of use cases with LibGuides CMS, including two limited-access staff intranet sites; two limited-permission student-curated course sites; a uniquely branded special collections event site; a uniquely-branded peer-reviewed literary journal; and two faculty-curated conference presentation sites. This session will be of interest to anyone using LibGuides, LibGuides CMS, or similar content management systems.
