Here There Be Dragons: Public Access to Federally Funded Research [$] Ticketed event Pennsylvania Convention Center
204 C
Description :

This symposium co-presented by the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) and bepress Digital Commons offers an unique opportunity to explore the complex issues surrounding the collection, organization, delivery and preservation of federally funded research. Join your colleagues from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 24, 2014 at the American Library Association (ALA) Midwinter in Philadelphia.

In February 2013, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy issued a memorandum directing Federal agencies to expand public access to the results of taxpayer-funded research. Several means of addressing this mandate, including SHARE (offered by the ARL, AAU, and APLU) and CHORUS (offered by the AAP), have been proposed. This symposium will explore the complex issues surrounding the collection, organization, delivery, and preservation of federally funded research.

OCLC Americas Regional Council Member Meeting and Symposium: The Hope and the Hype of MOOCs Exhibitor session Marriott
Grand C-E
Description :

The importance, accessibility and cost of education is on the minds of everyone today—administrators, faculty, librarians, politicians and parents. In this environment, MOOCs seem to offer a lifeline to schools and communities seeking to reinvent education and lifelong learning in the Internet Age. But the conversation about MOOCs is complex and evolving. New partnerships are being formed to deliver tools and curriculum. New business models are emerging. Questions about accreditation and measurement abound. Do MOOCs represent a sea change for both public and academic libraries? Or just a new twist on distance learning? Join OCLC at the ALA Midwinter symposium for a lively debate among MOOC practitioners, promoters… and skeptics.

Getting Started with Research Data in Your Repository Exhibitor session Marriott
Room 303
Description :

Interested in supporting data on your campus? Many libraries are eager to get started, but are anxious about whether they have the resources and capacity to build a successful program in the changing data landscape. The good news is, you’re more ready than you realize. Digital Commons is a flexible platform that can already support the vast majority of data sharing and preservation needs on campus.

The session will provide an overview of the types of data generated by researchers and discuss strategies for community outreach. Additionally, drawing on conversations with repository managers and other leaders in the data field, we'll present a set of guidelines and best practices for preparing and showcasing data in your repository. You have the tools to get started now - we'll show you how!

Scholarly Communications Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Pennsylvania Convention Center
203 A
Description :

We will feature two presentations.

Pilots to Program: UC San Diego Research Data Curation Pilots and the Library Research Data Curation Program
Mary Linn Bergstrom
UC San Diego
In the spring of 2011, the UC San Diego Research Cyberinfrastructure (RCI) Implementation Team invited campus researchers and research teams to participate in a Research Curation and Data Management Pilot program. The projects were chosen based on a number of criteria:how they represented the range of campus research and the various services they needed. The pilot process began in Sept 2011 and will be completed in early 2014.
Participants received services: assistance with the creation of metadata to make data discoverable and available for future re-use; ingest of data into the San Diego Supercomputer Center’s storage system; ingest of datasets and digital objects into the Library’s Digital Asset Management Systems (DAMS) for long-term access and discovery; movement of data into Chronopolis; data object identifier services; and training classes.
Implementation details of the services and the new Research Data Curation Program (RDCP) created at the Library based on the pilots will be discussed. RDCP supports data lifecycle management and will focus on aspects of contemporary scholarship: data creation and storage, description and metadata creation, citation and publication, and long-term preservation and access. The RDCP will provide services campus users can select to meet their needs. It will also provide support for data management requirements from national funding agencies.
Data Services as Information Services: or, Old Wine, New Bottle
Ivey Glendon and Michele Claibourn
University of Virginia Library
The currency of data in scholarly research is on the rise. The data supporting research across all academic disciplines is subject to the norms and requirements for access and sharing that has characterized the research output itself. In July 2013 the University of Virginia Library created a new library service to support data-intensive research initiatives. Research Data Services (RDS) is dedicated to the collaborative collection, management, use, and preservation of data across the research lifecycle, and offers coordinated support services and expertise for data-intensive research and teaching.
The growth of data-oriented research and of publicly-available datasets demands data literacy across the institution. We will relay how the RDS team serve and interact with the university research enterprise. Composed of data librarians charged with data acquisitions and discovery, specialists in statistical analysis and GIS engaged with training in the use of quantitative and spatial data, metadata and data management experts providing guidance and expertise on the creation of data documentation for preservation and dissemination, and digital media technologists supporting training to capture and transform data, the team supports researchers throughout the research data lifecycle.
We will discuss our organization – seeding data services throughout the library rather than concentrating them into a single unit – as well as the challenges we’ve encountered in gaining recognition within the university as a voice in the developing discussion around quantitative research at UVa and a service provider in the rapidly evolving research ecosystem.

The presentations will be followed by a brief business meeting.

Fair Use and DRM in Libraries: Beyond The United States: An ALCTS Forum Forum/Update Pennsylvania Convention Center
120 A
Description :

Fair Use and Digital Rights Management (DRM) seem to push in opposite intellectual-property directions. Fair Use (also known as Flexible Limitations and Exceptions) exists to various extents in many countries, allowing reuse of copyrighted material without permission in situations that have not been specifically anticipated in statutory law. Digital Rights Management and anti-circumvention laws are often perceived as undermining a range of user rights in copyright, such as first sale rights of purchasers, including libraries. What do Fair Use and DRM look like on the international scene? Join the ALCTS International Relations Committee for a discussion with experts.

Presenters:

Janice T. Pilch, Copyright and Licensing Librarian, Rutgers University Libraries: "The Proposed WIPO Treaty on Copyright Limitations and Exceptions for Libraries and Archives"’

Digital Curation Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Pennsylvania Convention Center
104 B
Description :

Join the Digital Curation Interest Group for "Teaching Students to Document Empirical Research: A Protocol for Documenting Data Management and Analysis", a presentation by Richard Ball, Associate Professor of Economics and Norm Medeiros, Associate Librarian, Haverford College.
Abstract: "This presentation will describe a protocol we have developed for teaching students conducting empirical research to document their work in such a way that their results are completely reproducible and verifiable. The protocol prescribes the creation and organization of a set of data, command, and metadata files, and is guided by the principle that an independent researcher, using only the data and information contained in these files, should be able to replicate every step of the data management and analysis. We will demonstrate how these files are described, preserved, and made accessible for replication by third-parties."
This 60 minute presentation will be followed by a 30 minute business meeting.
