"100 Stories: The Impact of Open Access" by Jean-Gabriel Bankier

"100 Stories: The Impact of Open Access" by Jean-Gabriel Bankier | Librarian Resources and Information | Scoop.it
This report is a pre-print that has been submitted for publication with UNESCO. It will be published as part of the publication: “Open Access to Scholarly Communication in 2016: Status and Benefits Review” .  It looks to answer the question: "why does open access matter?" We examined 100 stories of impact to produce a framework for describing the concrete benefits of open access for readers, authors and institutions. We aspire to move the open access conversation forward by making the case, backed by data, that the benefits of open access are real, widespread and significant

"Google Keep can be used on any device on which I sign into my Google Account. As you can see in the video embedded below, you can add labels to your Google Keep notes. Those labels can also be applied to bookmarks. All Google Keep notes and bookmarks can be shared with others."
liblist4u's insight:
Google Keep. https://keep.google.com
This is a really nice google product - it's like online sticky notes. Available as a chrome extension and as a mobile app.​ With the app you can even create a voice memo. ​Use to create notes, lists, and save bookmarks with the extension ​feature. Add labels​ so you can organize groups of notes​ ​(I also ​color​ code​ each note according to its label), and ​enable ​reminders ​for any note, ​too. Ability to share ​notes ​and ​to ​add to google docs. Best thing it's connected to your google account so always easily accessed.

Empire Archival Discovery Cooperative

Empire Archival Discovery Cooperative | Librarian Resources and Information | Scoop.it

"Since 2013, the Empire State Library Network has collaborated with archival professionals from around the state of New York to build a platform that can serve as an index and repository for finding aids created by holding institutions from around the state. In particular, it has sought to test the viability of the EADitor as both a platform for the index as well as a tool which contributors could use to create well-formed, DACS-compliant, encoded finding aids without prior EAD experience. The project is also developing a set of training materials to introduce the tool to potential users."
