Library Technology Conference 2019 |

"The LibTech Conference provides an opportunity for library professionals to come together to discuss the changing technologies that are affecting how users interact with libraries and to see how libraries are using technology to create new and better ways to manage their resources. It provides a venue where participants can learn skills or knowledge that they can take back and adapt for use within their own library through a mix of sessions including keynote presentations, traditional lecture-style concurrent sessions, panel discussions, and hands-on workshops. Sessions are offered on a wide range of topics and at varying skill levels. Anyone interested in the changing technologies that are affecting libraries should plan to attend."

GOKb status update webinar

GOKb status update webinar | Librarian  Professional Development and Learning | Scoop.it
GOKb, the Global Open Knowledgebase, is an open source project that seeks to create an open data knowledgebase for libraries to use in managing holdings and access to licensed resources. GOKb, formally run by North Carolina State University, has reorganized around a new coalition of partners. GOKb was formed under the Kuali Foundation as a sister project of Kuali OLE, but now, GOKb is a community of the Open Library Foundation (OLF) along with OLE, FOLIO and VuFind.

In this session, we will introduce the new members of the project team and their background. We will inform about the current activities of the GOKb project team (matching of data against bibliographic databases, new user interface study, participation in FOLIO ERM Sub Group). And we will trace the deliverables for GOKb over the next 12 months.

Come learn about our efforts to create a community-managed data resource that is critical to a central library function for managing licensed content.

27th NC Serials Conference (2018)

27th NC Serials Conference (2018) | Librarian  Professional Development and Learning | Scoop.it
Our 2018 conference theme is Blazing a New Path: Diversity, Collaboration, and Innovation. Libraries strive to offer users the widest possible array of content to meet their information needs, but face many challenges in doing so. In the face of external constraints, such as budget cuts and reduced staffing, the complexities of scholarly publishing, and constantly shifting patron needs, innovation in the face of change has become a necessary tool for survival. Please join us for a day of discussion around how we've collaborated across traditional organizational boundaries to find new ways to get things done, how we've expanded conversations to include people and ideas outside of traditional norms to improve services and workflows, how we've worked to expand the diversity of the staff at our organizations, and ways we've re-scoped our collections and/or workflows to acknowledge the diversity of our user populations to better serve their needs.

Incorporating Research Objects in Scholarship: Greater Discoverability, Access and Use - Virtual workshop | National Federation of Advanced Information Services

"For some time now, various stakeholders have started to think about and collaborate on efforts to pull enriched objects into the scholarly article through the use of identifiers—including but not limited to data sets, code, annotations, and more. In doing so, research would become more readily discoverable, reusable and reproducible, and the data and other research elements would ultimately become key components of the new scholarly record. Incorporating digital research objects requires a challenging framework that involves shared responsibilities among all stakeholders in the scholarly communications ecosystem. While discussions have been going on since as early as 2014, and the FAIR guiding principles (findable, accessible, interoperable, and re-usable) for data management were developed through stakeholder cross-collaboration, this workshop explores where we are today, what work has been done, and what is still needed to move this complex conversation forward. In this half-day virtual workshop, we will examine the researcher, publisher and discovery tool perspective, as well as the challenges and work underway to include these key components within the scholarly record."

Fake news: a history of altered images | ARTSTOR webinar

Kodak created a prototype for the first digital camera in 1975, and over the next 40 years digital imaging became ubiquitous. While we often associate “faked” visuals with digital processes, photographs have in fact been altered since the advent of the medium in the mid 19th century. Please join us for a webinar discussing the history of altered images from the early days of photography until present, motivations behind “faking” images, and new directions for contemporary altered imagery.

NISO virtual conference on Research Information Management

Many in the community have heard about the Research Information Systems (RIS); the next phase of development for the RIS is to network researchers in the interest of building strategic research initiatives and effective collaborations. This conference will look at the vision for and the progress being made in various initiatives (VIVO, REACH NC, and others). How might research information systems become more tightly integrated with workflow applications? The data captured in an RIS system is significant and should be driving increased functionality and accruing value. The event will spotlight entities that foster -- through the development of resources or networks -- the ability of researchers to identify and connect with collaborators for their work.

Library 2.018: Blockchain Applied: Impact on the Information Profession  - Virtual mini-conference

"The idea for ways that blockchain technology could be used by libraries came after hearing a presentation on LEARNING IS EARNING in the national learning economy made by Jane McGonigal, Institute for the Future, at the at the SXSW conference. The discussion fueled a plan for libraries to validate the academic and professional development credentials of individuals in a permanent electronic ledger that could have global access to their records eliminating the need for individuals to keep track of and submit individual copies of transcripts, certificates, badges, and other credentials. An investigation revealed that libraries might be able to use blockchain technology to accomplish more than housing electronic credentials."

NASIG Webinar: How Accessible Is Our Collection? Performing an E-Resources Accessibility Review

As usage of electronic resources has grown, ensuring that e-resources are accessible by users with disabilities has often gone ignored. While vendors are increasingly taking steps to address this issue, there is a noticeable lack of consistency across e-resource platforms. American University Library undertook a project to assess the accessibility of its subscribed e-resources and documented the efforts being made by vendors to make their products accessible. This webinar will describe methods and resources for compiling an accessibility inventory, and outline how libraries can further engage with vendors on this crucial issue. The webinar is adapted from a session held at the 2017 NASIG conference in Indianapolis, IN.
