    • “Making the case for European research libraries” LIBER = the largest network of European research/academic libraries: 425 institutions, from over 40 countries Mission: to represent and promote the interests of European research/academic libraries  Formulate a European strategy for research libraries  Knowledge sharing and dissemination, fostering partnerships  Advocacy and lobbying Semana del Acceso Abierto Peru, 25 October 2011
    • Strategy 2009-2012: areas of interesthttp://www.libereurope.eu/activities Scholarly Communications E-science, OA Digitisation and Resource Discovery Europeana, copyright Heritage Collections and Preservation Organisation and Human Resources Architecture, quality and benchmarking, security, library passport Semana del Acceso Abierto Peru, 25 October 2011
    • Sharing data is a necessity, not a luxury The world is changing: From an information to a (primary) data society  Data deluge: now and even more in the future  Mission of research institutes: doing research and disseminating the results We need NEW models for scholarly communication  Open Access  Cf. Obama admin, EC: open public data  Universities  Research libraries and data centres Semana del Acceso Abierto Peru, 25 October 2011

    • It’s all about laaaaaarge amounts of data “Data are no longer considered as interim products to be discarded once the research reporting them is published. Rather, they have become important sources of scholarly content to be used and re-used.” Borgman, The role of libraries in e-science Raw data from a central Pb+Pb event for 40 rows of the Main TPC Image: http://na49info.web.cern.ch/na49info/Public/Press/pictures/mtpc40rowsRawData.gif Semana del Acceso Abierto Peru, 25 October 2011
    • Making data usable/useful Data description and identification Organisation http://na49info.web.cern.ch/na49info/Public/Press/LogBook.html Data protection, privacy regulations, ethical issues Visualisation Interpretation Preservation Persistent link between publications and datasets Integrated search Semana del Acceso Abierto Peru, 25 October 2011
    • Making data usable/useful (2) Validation and peer review of data Data quality and integrity Interoperability Repositories Control over correct usage Selection Data publication Citation… Semana del Acceso Abierto Peru, 25 October 2011
    • This is e-science … and no science fiction  Large scale computing resources Data-intensive  Carried out over the internet Collaborative (team science, virtual science communities)  Distributed (networked science)  Interdisciplinary  Heterogeneous Quick and wide dissemination Semana del Acceso Abierto Peru, 25 October 2011
    • The paradox of e-science I share my data because I want/need your dataVs. I don’t share data because it doesn’t help my career It is MY data and I keep them safely stored on my laptop I don’t want other people to make misuse of my data Semana del Acceso Abierto Peru, 25 October 2011
    • Opportunities for data exchange http://www.ode-project.eu/ Data sharing is  smart: it is efficient, avoids duplication, stimulates the advancement of science  about transparency: it allows re-analysis  about enrichment: it adds value to traditional publications  rewarding: requirement for publicly funded research 3 perspectives: researchers, publishers, libraries and data centres Semana del Acceso Abierto Peru, 25 October 2011
    • There is no other way E-science is a reality and Open Access goes hand in hand with it Research output needs stable and trustworthy  Access  Storage Semana del Acceso Abierto Peru, 25 October 2011
    • Challenges for research libraries/data centres Directly contribute to more efficient/transparent research and education (open scholarschip, open knowledge) Getting involved in the research and education workflows Set new priorities Semana del Acceso Abierto Peru, 25 October 2011
    • DART Europe OA e-theses portal Portal for discovery of European research theses in Open Access  Run by UCL (University College London) for LIBER  At http://www.dart-europe.eu 228,665 research theses available (24 October 2011)  from 359 European Universities  in 20 European countries Semana del Acceso Abierto Peru, 25 October 2011
    • Open Access to research theses Theses freely available in Open Access are more heavily used than paper equivalents Example: Dublin City University, 2009 518 consultations of paper theses 16,212 downloads for the equivalent digital theses See: Hill, R. and Moyle, M. (2010) http://discovery.ucl.ac.uk/19955 Semana del Acceso Abierto Peru, 25 October 2011
