  • "Gerald Cloud moderated a vibrant panel with David R. Whitesell, David Vander Meulen, and James P. Ascher on the future of bibliography for special collection libraries. Whitesell discussed how understanding traditional bibliographical techniques can make us better custodians of our collections and enhance user research, while Vander Meulen extended this point to explain how intellectual content will be irrevocably lost if libraries follow the Ithaka Plan, or similar plans that destroy culture in favor of reducing costs. Ascher explained how traditional bibliographical thinking can be extended to digital resources, those that are composed of print primary sources and those that are born digital, by continuing to explore details in evidence and thinking about the transmission of texts."
  • CoryLown, Digital Library Development Librarian, NCSU was the keynote speaker. He provided an overview, context, strategies, tools for data visualization, and a list of resource materials [see handout] These are a few examples from his chronology of data visualization
  • How many zeros are in this shot?Too much discrete information for the brain to process, so you need to scan each number, then mentally keep track of the zeros, and build a tally
  • Simple use of ‘bold’ font makes it much easier to almost immediately grasp a sense of answer and quickly tally the zeros
  • Preattentive Attributes - qualities of visual information that humans are hard-wired to intuitively understand – before the brain has a chance to ‘catch up’ -- i.e. pre-attentionItems in BOLD are particularly good to convey quantitative information quickly
  • Examples of some guiding principles when decided how to format and present data
  • Pie charts should be used sparingly, as bar charts are easier to show comparisons
  • Este Pope, Library Resources Coordinator, prepared Prezi presentation to her District Governing Board, when Coconino Community College Library was closed, becoming a “Virtual Library”. Successfully presented data to demonstrate the role the Library played at the College and in the community
  • Florida State UniversityNumerous business intelligence/ analytics apps :Roambi ; MicroStrategy ; QlikViewProvides instant, visual, interactive data
  • Instantly Visualize, Interact & Compare
  • 3 meetings on linked data; Linked data and the next generation of catalogs Linking data across libraries, archives and museums LC Bibliographic Framework Transition Update (Eric Miller)Data Curation as a Form of Collaborative ResearchBuilding Digital Collection using Islandora
  • Google search results illustrate ‘linked data’ ... On the right side you often get brief profiles of people, places and things with pieces of data from different providers and links to related information.
  • In June (at the conference) OCLC announced that linked data was being added to WorldCat records applying Schema.org descriptors to all books and other bibliographic resources. Intelligent web crawlers, like Google, can make use of the metadata in search indexes and other applications.
  • Schema.org is a Google, Bing, Yahoo and Yanex initiative that developed a shared vocabulary for linked data on the web. Schema.org is working with a variety of organizations, including OCLC, to provide vocabulary extensions for particular purposes.
  • Meeting discussing organizational models and digital curation services provided by University of Florida (Social Sciences), Penn State (Institutional Repository) , University of Illinois (Humanities) and Purdue in collaboration with faculty. Purdue had particularly interesting projects. Example of robust service: Data Curation Profiles Toolkit http://datacurationprofiles.orgWorksheet and manual for librarians to use to capture requirements for specific data generated by a single scientist or lab, based on their reported their needs and preferences for the data. The site has examples of profiles completed at Purdue, Tennessee and Illinois.
  • HUBzerohttp://hubzero.orgHUBzero® is an open source software platform for building Web sites that support scientific discovery, learning, and collaboration. Originally created by researchers at Purdue University in conjunction with the NSF-sponsored Network for Computational Nanotechnology to support nanoHUB.org, the HUBzero platform now supports dozens of hubs across a variety of disciplines, including cancer research, pharmaceuticals, biofuels, microelectromechanical systems, climate modeling, water quality, volcanology, and more. Provides hosting services.Major components include: various interactive simulation tools that can be accessed through almost any Web browser, a repository for online course materials and other publications, mechanisms for uploading new resources, a tool development area, ratings and citations abilities, content tagging mechanisms, wikis and blogs, private and public collaboration areas, usage statistics, news and events, and more. http://hubzero.org/sites
  • Project Bamboo, funded by the Mellon Foundation, is a partnership of 10 universities that develops platforms for collaborative research in the humanities. Platforms developed for one discipline can be adapted for another. The group will be working on combining HUBzero and the Fedora digital asset management systems for humanities researchers.
  • Participated in a full day pre-conference on the Islandora platform. Participants included the curious (several public and academic libraries, andthe Digital Library of California) developers Emily Gore, Florida State Laura Smart, Cal Tech– digital collections, the Smithsonian will move from Dspace to IslandoraNational Library of Medicine will use for Special CollectionsU Missouri getting ready to launch for Digital Collections potential users for special projects -- Texas A & M and Washington state,IslandoraIslandorais an open source framework developed by the University of Prince Edward Island's Robertson Library. Islandora combines the Drupal (a PHP based content management system) and Fedora, an open software Digital Asset Management applications. It’s a “package.” Drupal is the “front-end” for presentation, data entry / editing, fedora management,user management, etc. Additional features are provided by other open source services: SOLR (searching), Djakota (derivative images for presentation) and Tesseract OCRThe Fedora uses a content model architecture. This is a formal model, expressed in an XML document, that characterizes a class of digital objects. It can also provide a model of the relationships which are permitted, excluded, or required between groups of digital objects. It covers the metadata schema used, behaviors assigned to the object (page turning, image display, etc.), image properties, and how object is related to other objects in the database. Everything in the Islandora Fedora repository is an object -- a service description, a page, a collection, a book, a video, an image, a learning object, a dataset etc. You can assign as many content models as you like to an object. Objects can be related to multiple collections.Islandoraprovides default solution packs (“Sprouts”). These are Drupal modules containing ‘default’ content object models, workflows, and ingest tools. There are solution packs for newspapers, images, books, pages, audio, maps, institutional repositories, numeric data, digital humanities services, epidemiology, etc.The content can either be stored internally in the Fedora repository, or stored remotelyOver 20 metadata standards are currently supported. You may have to build the XSLT stylesheets for others.Commerical part: Discovery Garden

  • LINKED DATA? Linked data is about exposing, sharing, and reusing pieces of data distributed across the web. As a publishing technique it is focused on interoperability, statements NOT documents, and building relationships and meanings using a formal set of W3C semantic web standards and practices. The data is structured so computers can un-ambiguously read it. Things that must be present:  Openly licensed data  The data must be structured as RDF (Resource Description Framework) triples  using URI (Uniformed Resource Identifiers) as addresses (preferably those that can be „dereferenced‟ .. e.g. URLs)  HTTP protocol
