Telescope bibliography cookbook

  1. 1. Telescope Bibliography Cookbook Sandra Kitt & Uta Grothkopf European Southern Observatory Library LISA VI, February 14-17, 2010, Pune, India
  2. 2. Telbib purposeFrom ingredients to the final dish(Complete the life-cycle of data) Observing programsTelescope bibliography Data archive Papers LISA VI, February 14-17, 2010, Pune, India
  3. 3. Ingredients Access to scientific literature, e.g. via ADS Ideally: full-text search tool, e.g. FUSE Database for managing records of papers Policy to determine which papers qualify Method for assigning keywords or tags Data archive to link papers and observations LISA VI, February 14-17, 2010, Pune, India
  4. 4. ESO Science Archive Observing Dates ProgramIDs Authors Telescopes / Instruments
  5. 5. ESO Science Archive Program IDs from ESO Archive
  6. 6. Cooking timeDepends on telbib database content ➡ bibliographic record ➡ tags, keywords ➡ program IDs➡ details provided by authors of papers LISA VI, February 14-17, 2010, Pune, India
  7. 7. Fast-Food RecipeHigh heat for fast result Institutional policy applied by authors ESO: program IDs in footnote Also check Acknowledgments, Facilities, Observations, Abstract, Tables Verify programs ! LISA VI, February 14-17, 2010, Pune, India
  8. 8. ESO + program IDs in footnote LISA VI, February 14-17, 2010, Pune, India
  9. 9. 2009: approx. 60% ESO + program IDsproIDs in footnote or in footnoteacknowledgments LISA VI, February 14-17, 2010, Pune, India
  10. 10. e Examples 1 Program IDs in Footnote Instruments in Facilities Program ID in text Program IDs in Table LISA VI, February 14-17, 2010, Pune, India
  11. 11. Medium-speed RecipeSimmer under moderate heat Paper: Check Observations section or Tables for observing dates Data Archive: Check authors’ names + observed object (does not work for archival observations) Check instruments + observation dates LISA VI, February 14-17, 2010, Pune, India
  12. 12. e Examples 2 Observing dates in Observations section Observing dates in Table LISA VI, February 14-17, 2010, Pune, India
  13. 13. Slow-Food RecipeReduce heat, continue cooking Read full-text carefully, look for previously published papers in same series Check Acknowledgment: data provided by colleagues? Observations taken during technical time w/o proper program IDs? LISA VI, February 14-17, 2010, Pune, India
  14. 14. e Examples 3 Data taken during technical time Observing date + instrument + object in text Referring back to previously published paper (Paper I) Acknowledgment of observers who provided data LISA VI, February 14-17, 2010, Pune, India
  15. 15. Final StepsWhen all else fails... Contact author for clarification LISA VI, February 14-17, 2010, Pune, India
  16. 16. Result Delicious meal that serves many people (Database that links published literature with observational data, and vice versa.) LISA VI, February 14-17, 2010, Pune, India
