7 Ways Librarians Can Participate in Open Access/Source/Education Communities - iLibrarian | bibliolibrarianothecaire | Scoop.it

As a librarian I use a lot of information, software, and resources which are made available to me through creative commons licensing, open access repositories, and the open source community. If you’re like me and looking for ways to give back, here are a few ideas for ways you can contribute to these amazing communities.

How Librarians Can Help Prepare Faculty for the Next Generation of Research Impact Metrics”

How Librarians Can Help Prepare Faculty for the Next Generation of Research Impact Metrics” | bibliolibrarianothecaire | Scoop.it

As scholars migrate into online spaces like Mendeley, blogs, Twitter, and more, they leave new traces of once-invisible interactions like reading, saving, discussing, and recommending. Observing these traces can inform new metrics of scholarly influence and impact — so-called “altmetrics.” Stakeholders in academia are beginning to discuss how and where altmetrics can be useful towards evaluating a researcher’s academic contribution. As this interest grows, libraries are in a unique position to help support an informed dialog on campus. We suggest that librarians can provide this support in three main ways: informing emerging conversations with the latest research, supporting experimentation with emerging altmetrics tools, and engaging in early altmetrics education and outreach. We include examples and lists of resources to help librarians fill these roles.

Une réflexion sur la manière dont pourraient être améliorés les portails institutionnels des bibliothèques et sur la façon d'en rendre leur contenu plus pertinent afin d'en faciliter l'accès aux utilisateurs.

Groupe8's comment, May 30, 2013 10:04 PM
Les portails pourraient être aussi vus en effet comme des espaces d'échange de contenus entre la bibliothèque et ses usagers.

enthousiasmant de les voir comme cela car alors les contenus s'ouvrent et se démultiplient , allant vers une réelle aire de partage.

La culture de l’information a-​​t-​​elle une histoire ?

Cette com­mu­ni­cation est une amorce de réflexion à tonalité théo­rique quant à une conception pos­sible de l’histoire de l’information-documentation. Définir l’histoire est infi­niment com­plexe. C’est cependant dans la façon dont nous appré­hendons le passé que se construit notre rapport au réel. Et de fait, l’histoire de la Culture de l’information s’avère un thème com­pliqué et sen­sible, à la fois émergent ? et porteur pour la recherche contemporaine.

Librarianship today is about greeting each customer (in person or online) and making sure that his or her library visit is one of the best experiences of the day. Most importantly, it’s about listening to our users’ needs and connecting them with the information, resources, and services that can help them get on with their lives.

BnF, numérisation et partenariats publics-privés : réponse ministérielle

BnF, numérisation et partenariats publics-privés : réponse ministérielle | bibliolibrarianothecaire | Scoop.it

Une première réponse aux deux questions parlementaires relatives aux partenariats publics-privés conclus par la BnF a été apportée par le ministère de la Culture.
À la question de Madame Françoise Guégot sur l'opportunité de « l'exclusivité de l'exploitation de ces documents numérisés pendant une durée de dix ans », la réponse apportée est que : « (...) Les accords signés par la BnF ne concèdent d'exclusivité que sur les documents issus de la numérisation et qui, par définition, ne relèvent pas du domaine public puisqu'ils sont aussi le produit de l'activité du partenaire privé. En revanche, les documents physiques, qui sont la source de la numérisation et qui relèvent du domaine public, ne sont grevés d'aucune exclusivité : ils peuvent toujours être numérisés ou communiqués à qui en fera la demande, dans le cadre ordinaire des missions de la Bibliothèque nationale de France. Enfin, les durées d'exclusivité accordées respectent les limites recommandées par les rapports susmentionnés. Ainsi, loin de réduire la jouissance du domaine public, ces accords permettent à la fois d'accroître la diffusion du patrimoine national auprès du plus grand nombre et de maintenir l'effort budgétaire public dans des limites acceptables. »

Are elite journals declining now emerging and established journals are publishing an increasing proportion of most cited papers?

Are elite journals declining now emerging and established journals are publishing an increasing proportion of most cited papers? | bibliolibrarianothecaire | Scoop.it

Abstract:

Previous work indicates that over the past 20 years, the highest quality work have been published in an increasingly diverse and larger group of journals. In this paper we examine whether this diversification has also affected the handful of elite journals that are traditionally considered to be the best. We examine citation patterns over the past 40 years of 7 long-standing traditionally elite journals and 6 journals that have been increasing in importance over the past 20 years. To be among the top 5% or 1% cited papers, papers now need about twice as many citations as they did 40 years ago. Since the late 1980s and early 1990s elite journals have been publishing a decreasing proportion of these top cited papers. This also applies to the two journals that are typically considered as the top venues and often used as bibliometric indicators of "excellence", Science and Nature. On the other hand, several new and established journals are publishing an increasing proportion of most cited papers. These changes bring new challenges and opportunities for all parties. Journals can enact policies to increase or maintain their relative position in the journal hierarchy. Researchers now have the option to publish in more diverse venues knowing that their work can still reach the same audiences. Finally, evaluators and administrators need to know that although there will always be a certain prestige associated with publishing in "elite" journals, journal hierarchies are in constant flux so inclusion of journals into this group is not permanent.

 

The authors: "With all these new journals, elite and otherwise, researchers now have increasingly more venues where they can submit their papers, and benefit from a visibility and availability that formerly was possible only for the most widely distributed journals, the “elite” journals. Given the high rejection rates of elite journals, around 93% for Science, for example, researchers might prefer to save time and submit their papers to other journals that ultimately will reach the same audience faster and potentially obtain as many citations. In the digital age it is relatively easy to determine the actual citation rate of individual papers or authors, so the value of a journal’s reputation is now less important. Nevertheless, researchers might still prefer to publish in elite journals. Whether justifiable or not, journal reputation still has some value to the papers therein, through a Mathew effect (Larivière and Gingras 2010), particularly when the research is viewed and evaluated by non-experts."

What information competencies matter in today’s workplace?

This is a qualitative study about the information competencies that employers seek in university graduates and the skills which graduates demonstrate when they enter the workplace. Included are findings from interviews with 23 US employers and focus groups with a total of 33 recent graduates from four US colleges and universities. Employers said they recruited graduates for their online searching skills but once graduates joined the workplace they rarely used the traditional, low-tech research competencies that their employers also needed. Graduates said that they used skills from university for evaluating and managing published content; yet most graduates still needed to develop adaptive strategies to save time and work more efficiently. A preliminary model compares information problems in the university with those of the workplace. Opportunities are identified for preparing students to succeed beyond the academy in the workplaces of today and tomorrow.
