Using Fair Use To Preserve And Share Disappearing Government Information, William Cross 2017 North Carolina State University

Using Fair Use To Preserve And Share Disappearing Government Information, William Cross

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

Access to government information is a fundamental principle in a democratic society. Particularly in the digital environment, government information is a driver for economic and social progress as well as a predicate for an informed citizenry. From 2009 through 2016, open government was a hallmark of the Obama administration, which observed that, “openness in government strengthens our democracy, promotes the delivery of efficient and effective services to the public, and contributes to economic growth.” Libraries and archives have historically served as stewards of government documents, and in recent years, these institutions have paid special attention to the unique vulnerability of ...


Metadata And Copyright: Should Institutions License Their Data About Scholarship?, Krista L. Cox 2017 Association of Research Libraries

Metadata And Copyright: Should Institutions License Their Data About Scholarship?, Krista L. Cox

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

Institutions have a number of options for how to treat metadata while encouraging widespread use and sharing. Some institutions may determine that no license is necessary to openly share metadata, taking the position that the metadata they produce is not copyrightable. Others might share it using a CC0 license or CC0 with additional guidelines. In determining how to share metadata, institutions should consider possible cross-border implications as well as the potential that what is defined as metadata could grow in breadth and raise additional copyright concerns. Additionally, institutions should take into account the benefit that clear and easy-to-understand policies provide ...

Committing To The Non-Traditional: The Path To The Incorporation Of 3d Models In An Online Journal, Dillon Mark Wackerman, Robert Z. Selden Jr.

Dillon Wackerman

In 2013 Dr. Robert Selden approached the Center for Digital Scholarship (CDS) at Stephen F. Austin State University (SFA) inquiring about the possibility of including interactive 3D models in a digital collection. Working with Dr. Selden, the CDS found a platform to which these models could be deposited and displayed. Concurrently, the CDS was actively promoting SFA’s institutional repository, SFA ScholarWorks. One guiding idea behind these IR-focused activities was the emphasis of the legitimacy of non-traditional works in respect to SFA ScholarWorks and the academic community as a whole. This idea and acceptance of the non-traditional was maintained as ...

Elements Of Successful Online Journal Publishing, Dillon Wackerman, R Philip Reynolds

Dillon Wackerman

At the Center for Digital Scholarship (CDS) at Stephen F. Austin State University (SFASU), we have discovered that there are many complex details to launching a successful online journal-publishing program. In our lead role at SFASU, we have streamlined implementation to make this a relatively straightforward process for the journal managers and editors.

Most of the journal editors with whom we currently work are experienced authors and reviewers, but they rely upon us to assist them with the design, implementation and editorial processes. Following this, we have found it beneficial to provide comprehensive and personalized customer support and training. Some ...


Repositories: Models & Images, R Philip Reynolds, Dillon Wackerman 2017 Stephen F. Austin State University

Repositories: Models & Images, R Philip Reynolds, Dillon Wackerman

Dillon Wackerman

Digital repositories most often collect traditional materials, such as theses, articles and images that do not require unique workflows or practices. While these types of items are common, repositories can also expect to encounter non-traditional materials that can challenge the knowledge and experience of the repository manager. Whether because of new file formats, visual effects or certain aspects of performance art, there are certain items that require unique expertise and innovative design. These can include items such as 3D models, embeddable media, student exhibits and other unique works. As librarians, we should actively solicit these materials in order to more ...

The Relationship Between Manuscript Title Structure And Success: Editorial Decisions And Citation Performance For An Ecological Journal, Charles W. Fox, C. Sean Burns 2017 University of Kentucky

The Relationship Between Manuscript Title Structure And Success: Editorial Decisions And Citation Performance For An Ecological Journal, Charles W. Fox, C. Sean Burns

C. Sean Burns

A poorly chosen article title may make a paper difficult to discover or discourage readership when discovered, reducing an article's impact. Yet, it is unclear how the structure of a manuscript's title influences readership and impact. We used manuscript tracking data for all manuscripts submitted to the journal Functional Ecology from 2004 to 2013 and citation data for papers published in this journal from 1987 to 2011 to examine how title features changed and whether a manuscript's title structure was predictive of success during the manuscript review process and/or impact (citation) after publication. Titles of manuscripts ...

The IR: What’s Copyright Got To Do With It?

SHERPA/RoMEO provides IR managers with publishers’ copyright information, making the deposit of faculty research articles fairly straightforward. But what about all the other materials we’re now putting in the IR? Things like:

  • Books and book chapters
  • ETDs that include others’ copyrighted materials
  • Undergraduate research
  • Conference posters and presentations
  • Archival materials
  • Oral histories
  • Digitized university collections

IR managers now need to understand the copyright issues surrounding a wide variety of materials and need to make well-reasoned decisions regarding their deposit into the IR. During this table talk, we’ll ...

Measuring Impact (2017 Nebraska Acrl Scholarly Communication Roadshow, University Of Nebraska-Lincoln), Jaron Porciello

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

Excerpt from the slides and presenter's notes:

Helps us see the lifecycle of research - why and how We have a lot of knowledge in this space because we know the resources and systems impact is based on -- we can act as thought leaders.

Scholarly communication cycle involves “evaluating research and other scholarly writings for quality” (ARL, 2013).

Librarians have always been part of the “impact” conversation from the perspective of the ways in which we help people. We provide budding researchers with access to seminal ideas in the field and help established researchers keep current with new information and ...
