Introduction to Linked Data for Libraries | Lyrasis online class

Introduction to Linked Data for Libraries | Lyrasis online class | Librarian  Professional Development and Learning | Scoop.it
Linked Open Data is a feature of the Semantic Web that has been gaining attention in recent years. "Linked Data" refers to data published in accordance with principles designed to facilitate linkages among all kinds of resources on the Web; it goes beyond hypertext links between documents to include links to anything that has identity, such as people, controlled vocabularies, geographic places, etc. Linked Data opens up the wealth of resources in libraries and exposes it to the wider world of the Web, enabling sharing and reusability. This class provides an introduction to the principles of Linked Data, the methods of making data available in such a form, and illustrates interesting applications that libraries are developing.

Making Certain Digital Content is Preserved: Archiving Digital Resources | Virtual conference - NISO

Making Certain Digital Content is Preserved: Archiving Digital Resources | Virtual conference - NISO | Librarian  Professional Development and Learning | Scoop.it
Publishers, aggregators, government agencies, research institutes and libraries understand the value in and require archiving mechanisms in order to retain access to scholarly records in a constantly changing information landscape. Over the last several years, best practices have been developed and many initiatives have been launched to rise to the challenge in preserving these works but perhaps without a clear vision for how or who will support long-term maintenance to ensure this critical information is not lost or degraded. This webinar will address the past, present and future state of digital preservation including an overview, institutional policies, metadata and formats, accessibility, types of archives and repositories, back-up systems and issues of security.

Digital Security | 2-part NISO webinar 

Digital Security | 2-part NISO webinar  | Librarian  Professional Development and Learning | Scoop.it
In our connected environment, security is tremendously important element of any system.  Institutions large and small have been targets of attack and libraries are a significant vector of approach for some institutions, because of their bias toward access and sharing of resources. In addition to personal information about patrons, library systems contain a variety of valuable information and provide gateways to numerous other resources.  All of these realities require information specialists to be aware of potential risks and how to address them. 

This two-part webinar program will focus on what best practice activities libraries should be implementing to ensure that their services are protected and secure.  Part one of this webinar will be focused on management of internal systems and methods of securing library systems and the data that they hold. 

The second session of this program will be focused on the issue of privacy and methods for protecting content from unauthorized distribution, including digital rights management systems, social DRM, and other approaches to preventing piracy.

Webinar: LibGuides, Literacy and Literati

Bethany Reisch will discuss how Northshore Technical Community College uses available Credo Literati tools in conjunction with their LibGuides to promote information literacy. They created their library website using LibGuides but noticed that their students were not really using it. In order to increase LibGuide usage, they conducted surveys asking their students how we could improve their website. Once they had the students' feedback, they revamped the library webpage with LibGuides CMS and added more resources by using readily available Credo LibGuides.

Money and Power - ACRL/NY Symposium 2016

"Economic, social, and political power affect the choices we all make as individuals and as institutions, and academic libraries and archives are far from exempt. Power and money determine who and what is included or excluded, affect our conscious and unconscious agendas, and can be used to further or hinder changes of many kinds. Yet as ever-present as these forces are, they are often assumed and unspoken. At this one-day conference, presenters will address some of the undercurrents of money and power within academic libraries and archives, with the goal of moving forward together with productive analysis and action."

The Times They Are a Changin’: How Stacks for Books are Transforming into Spaces for Makers | Webinar | Librarian  Professional Development and Learning | Scoop.it

During this session, we’ll walk through the preliminary findings of the survey, providing insight into how libraries are innovating their physical spaces to support hands-on learning.
