  1. 1. Smithsonian Libraries in Service of Scholarly Communications An Introduction to Smithsonian Research Online & Other Resources Martin R. Kalfatovic Smithsonian Libraries Leibniz Association | Smithsonian Exchange 30 October 2017 | Washington, DC
  2. 2. OVERVIEW In 2018, Smithsonian Libraries will mark ten years of providing direct support to scholarly communications for the Smithsonian.
  3. 3. Over the past ten years, Smithsonian Libraries have moved from providing direct support for the scholarship of the Institution to an active role of managing the tracking, metrics, and analysis of published research output. library.si.edu
  4. 4. library.si.edu In 2008, Smithsonian Libraries launched Smithsonian Research Online (SRO), a metadata repository that captured bibliographic data of publications in a searchable and repurposable database.
  5. 5. library.si.edu SRO was soon supplemented with a content repository, using the DSpace platform, to capture and store full- text publications within the bounds of copyright.
  6. 6. library.si.edu SRO tracks scholarly and related research output across the Institution with data from all museums and research institutes.
  7. 7. STATISTICS Currently, there are nearly 83,000 citations in SRO. Over the past four years, there are around 2,200-2,700 citations added each year. As would be expected, the majority of publications are from the sciences. The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, National Museum of Natural History, and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute being the usual leaders in terms of output.
  8. 8. SMITHSONIAN SCHOLARLY PUBLISHING WHAT WE HAVE IN RESEARCH ONLINE library.si.edu 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 Thousands Growth of annual number of publications by Smithsonian authors in Research Online (from 1843-2016) OVER 80K PUBLICATIONS SINCE 1843
  9. 9. SCIENCE HISTORY & CULTURE ART OTHER What Smithsonian Publishes Nearly 83,000 total publications since 1846 library.si.edu
  10. 10. Smithsonian Research Areas library.si.edu
  11. 11. library.si.edu Institutional Repository The SRO repository holds about 25,000 publications and related items. repository.si.edu
  12. 12. WHITE HOUSE DIRECTIVE In 2013, the Smithsonian voluntarily complied with the White House Directive on Public Access to Federally Funded Research and Data.
  13. 13. library.si.edu In August 2015, the Institution released the Plan for Increased Public Access to Results of Federally Funded Research. In conjunction with the Smithsonian Institution Scholarly Press, the Smithsonian Libraries manages compliance with the Directive via participation in the publisher lead CHORUS (Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States) and the Association of Research Libraries SHARE program.
  14. 14. SERVICES AND SCHOLARLY METRICS Smithsonian Libraries Scholarly Communications support evaluation of the Smithsonian research output.
  15. 15. Key services and uses of SRO include: Professional Accomplishment Evaluation Committee (PAEC) Impact metrics around funded post- doc, e.g. the Peter Buck Fellowship Program
  16. 16. BIBLIOMETRICS AT THE SMITHSONIAN REPORTING EXAMPLES library.si.edu Impact of Evolution of Terrestrial Ecosystems Smithsonian Libraries uses data from SRO to generate on-demand and annual reports for museum, research institute, and central administrators.
  17. 17. library.si.edu Additionally, SRO provides a central data source for tracking published scholarly output that is repurposable on museum, department, and individual research web-pages.
  18. 18. library.si.edu Many of the reports are standard impact analysis, but for the past few years, Altmetrics have been employed to provide an additional lens into the impact of research.
  19. 19. GLOBALLY UNIQUE IDENTIFIERS Smithsonian Libraries also serves as the distributor of unique identifiers for the Institution.
  20. 20. GLOBALLY UNIQUE IDENTIFIERS
  21. 21. SMITHSONIAN PROFILES The research ecosystem is much larger than just publications. To capture this larger ecosystem, Smithsonian Libraries collaborated with Deputy Under Secretary for Collections and Interdisciplinary Support (DUSCIS), the Office of Fellowships and Internships, and Smithsonian Institution Scholarly Press ...
  22. 22. SMITHSONIAN PROFILES to build a researcher profile system that would serve as an expert locator and scholarly activities management system. Built on the VIVO open source platform, Smithsonian Profiles is currently available internally and will launch externally later in 2017.
  23. 23. RESEARCH DATA MANAGEMENT Smithsonian Libraries have been leading the pan-Smithsonian Data Management Working Group since early 2013.
  24. 24. The Working Group had wide participation from both SIL staff and from important partners including the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO), Smithsonian Archives, and the National Museum of Natural History. library.si.edu
  25. 25. Research institutes and academic institutions have increasingly turned towards their libraries to assist with the creation and staffing of RDM programs. The many years of successful work by Smithsonian Libraries staff in establishing the SRO program to capture scholarly publications, made SIL the obvious choice to lead the project. library.si.edu
  26. 26. Earlier this month, with financial support from the Deputy Under Secretary for Collections and Interdisciplinary Support (DUSCIS), Smithsonian Libraries launched the Smithsonian Research Data Prototype Project (SRDPP) which will last approximately six months. The SRDPP will provide recommendations for next steps in creating a robust Research Data Management program for the Institution's researchers.
  27. 27. IN CLOSING ... Scholarly communication has taken on new complexities in the networked environment. With 21 libraries in Smithsonian museums and research institutes, Smithsonian Libraries is uniquely poised to serve as a hub for scholarly communications management for the complex distribute research activities of the Smithsonian.
