As Researchers Turn to Google, Libraries Navigate the Messy World of Discovery Tools

As Researchers Turn to Google, Libraries Navigate the Messy World of Discovery Tools | copyright and creativity | Scoop.it
Librarians want to make their content searchable, but they’re wary of commercial software that may skew the results.

Via John Shank
Dick Vestdijk's insight:

Un-biasing queries for information and subsequent results, is indeed the goal of any librarian in public education. Whatever EBSCO, Ex Libris et al state, searching relevant information is by and large un-automatable. Keyword is curation - an ongoing activity to keep curated academic content useful. ""unlike almost anything that libraries have done before," the rollout of one-stop search tools is "really intentionally trying to change the way people do research," says Michael Levine-Clark"

Sharrock's curator insight, April 29, 2014 10:23 AM

from the article: "Ms. Morse belongs to a group, the Open Discovery Initiative, which unites various players to promote transparency and best practices for discovery tools. In the emerging conversations around this topic, one buzz phrase is "content neutrality." The idea resembles "net neutrality," the notion that network operators shouldn’t block or favor certain content. Proponents of content neutrality argue that discovery providers should have equal access to the information needed to surface content in the search tools’ results. That information includes things like the full text of journal articles and the "metadata" that describe the articles, such as the author, subject, journal title and publication date."

nickcarman's curator insight, May 1, 2014 12:21 AM

Library customers prefer simplicity. They either don't the time or the inclination to master the ins and outs of various databases.  I can see the appeal of a simple search interface.

LinkedUp: Linking Web Data for Education - An EU project about the potential of open data in education

LinkedUp: Linking Web Data for Education - An EU project about the potential of open data in education | copyright and creativity | Scoop.it

LinkedUp – Linking Web Data for Education Project

The LinkedUp project is a FP7 Support Action which pushes forward the exploitation and adoption of public, open data available on the Web, in particular by educational organisations and institutions.

To address these goals, LinkedUp provides a range of activities, including the establishment of the LinkedUp Challenge and a corresponding evaluation framework. These are aimed at identifying and promoting innovative success stories which exploit large-scale Web data in educational scenarios as part of robust applications and tools.

The project is made up of consortium partners each with respective roles in the LinkedUp project.There are also a number of associated partners with an interest in the project.The LinkedUp Challenge has an advisory board consisting of renowned experts in the fields of open data & data management, semantic web and web-based education.

Additional dataset curation activities will result in a repository and catalog of well-described and assessed datasets for educational purposes and will support participants of the data challenge, as well as interested data consumers and application developers in general.

The overall aim is to facilitate the development of innovative applications produced by the LinkedUp community and challenge participants and their deployment in real-world use case scenarios.
