  100. 100. is the term given to describe a second generation of the World Wide Web that is focused on the ability for people to collaborate and share information online.
  101. 101. A group of new Web- based information tools and services—such as social networking sites— that are easy to adopt and use and that enable their users to be producers and publishers rather than just consumers of information (O’Reilly, 2005; Anderson, 2007)
  102. 102. WEB 2.0 brings the promise of enabling researchers to create, annotate, review, re-use and represent information in new ways, and of promoting innovations in scholarly communication practices— e.g. publishing ‘work in progress’ and openly sharing research resources—that will help to realize the e- Research vision of improved productivity and reduced ‘time to discovery’ (Arms & Larsen 2007; Hannay 2009; Hey et al. 2009).

  105. 105. CYBERSHCHOLARSHIP DEFINED Is the marriage between high performance computing and digital libraries that can bring together vast quantities of material (Arms, W., 2008)
  106. 106. QUESTION Why should we embrace cybersholarship? We are living in a data-driven science
  107. 107. CYBERSHCHOLARSHIP In the cyberage, collections of digital content and the software to interpret them have become the foundation of discovery. (Richardson, 2008)
  108. 108. CYBERSHCHOLARSHIP When content becomes infrastructure, there is value in investment to support it. (Richardson, 2008)
  109. 109. CYBERSHCHOLARSHIP The preservation and organization of information for new forms of scholarship enable others to discover unexpected and novel associations without having to replicate the primary data (Richardson, 2008)
  110. 110. SOME FUTURE TRENDS In future, text/data needs to be in formats that support machine processing (e.g. XML or Xtensible Markup Language rather than PDF (Richardson, 2008)
  111. 111. THE PROBLEM IN CYBERSCHOLARSHIP The apathy of the academic, scientific and information communities coupled with the indifference or even active hostility and greed of many publishers renders literature-data-driven science still inaccessible (Richardson, 2008)
  112. 112. EXAMPLE OF CYBERSCHOLARSHIP AT THE MACRO LEVEL The National Virtual Observatory Its goal is to bring together previously disjoint sets of astronomical data, in particular digital sky surveys that have made observations at various wavelengths. Important astronomical results that are not observable in a single dataset can be revealed by combined analysis of data from these different surveys.
  113. 113. ENTREZ Entrez provides a unified view of biomedical information from a wide variety of sources including the PubMed citations and abstracts, the Medical Subject Headings, full text of journal articles and books, databases such as the protein sequence database and Genbank, and computer programs such as the Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) for comparing gene and protein sequences.

  137. 137. SOME TRENDS
  138. 138. SOME TRENDS The tendency of scholars to sign away all their rights when an article or other content format is published, and the pressure to make research publicly available
  139. 139. THE AMERICAN COUNCIL OF LEARNED SCIENCES (ACLS, 2006) Recommends that all content be freely available under open access, even if no plan has been put forward for addressing the IP issues surrounding many formats.
  140. 140. JOINT NSF/JISC REPORT (2007) Projects which use public funds to generate data, etc, have a responsibility to make that information available to other researchers.

  145. 145. Statistics Overview
  146. 146. provides a simple way to broadly search for scholarly literature. From one place, you can search across many disciplines and sources: articles, theses, books, abstracts and court opinions, from academic publishers, professional societies, online repositories, universities and other web sites. Google Scholar helps you find relevant work across the world of scholarly research
  147. 147. “Yet consistently the literature points to the basic failure to date to embed the institutional repository in the intellectual life of the scholar/researcher.” The ISSUE
  148. 148. “If self-archiving, i.e. relying on academics to either deposit their own works themselves or allocate the task to someone else such as a research assistant, serves as the basis for populating the repository, then this concept/workflow has failed to fulfill initial expectations.”
  149. 149. “The majority of the academic staff felt that they did not have the time to self-deposit, and were particularly unwilling to do this where they had already provided publication details to a departmental administrator.”
  150. 150. “At Curtin University of Technology, an integrator system has been designed and implemented to share data between an institutional eprint repository and a University publications management system..”

  177. 177. IN CONCLUSION Given the promises and the challenges of cyberscolarship, the practice of academic and research librarianship in the Philippines remains a great work in progress.
