  1. 1. DISCOVERING NEW SEAS OF KNOWLEDGE Technologies, environments and users in the future of health libraries “Discovery of scientific information on healththrough social labeling: Connotea and CiteUlike” Carlos Lopes Julio Alonso-Arévalo, Helena Martín-Rodero, María García-Puente Sánchez, Angels Carles-Pomar * 17 JUNE 2010 11.15-13.00 Parallel Sessions D : Auditorium 1 Theme: Emerging Technologies and Tools
  2. 2. Medical Information Library & Knowledge: MILK or discovery of scientificinformation on health through social labeling: Connotea and CiteUlike 1. Introductionagenda 2. Milk Project: development stages 3. Integration of the platform Citeulike MILK 4. Conclusions
  3. 3. Context • The Web 2.0 or second generation is based primarily on user communities that foster collaboration and exchange of information. • Many of these technologies fall within the scope of the freeware and free software based on open source. • One of the basic characteristics of 2.0 applications is precisely the reuse of content. • Many of them are based on this principle as in the case of mashups. 3
  4. 4. Medical Information Library & Knowledge: MILKThe starting point of this virtual project has its origin in the SummerSchool of the University of Salamanca "Virtual Library of HealthSciences”, which will soon celebrate its 5th edition, in whichparticipated as speakers members of this collaborative platform. 4
  5. 5. Milk Project: development stages• The project involves collaboration between different libraries and research centers from different parts of Spain and Portugal that share a common interest: to have a cooperative information system.• The project involves the Library of Health Sciences at the Universities of Salamanca and the Autonomous University of Barcelona, Hospital de Torrevieja (Alicante) and the Higher Institute of Applied Psychology (ISPA) in Lisbon, Portugal. 5
  6. 6. •The first phase of the project was the creation ofa common information portal called "Open Medical Library”, oninformation service cooperative 2.0 that uses a technologyplatform for free: Netvibes.•Netvibes brings together favourite widgets, websites, blogs,email accounts, social networks, search engines, instantmessaging, RSS feeds, photos, videos, podcasts...•Despite this complexity of domestic technological network, oneof the basic features of Netvibes is the rapid development ofcontent and ease of use. 6
  7. 7. Netvibes application was developed by Tariq Krim in 2005 andis one of the pioneers of the tools offered by Web 2.0 style customdesktops iGoogle provided, although it differs from otherapplications and has a private and a public part. Private Public 7
  8. 8. NetvibesKey features of Netvibes are:• Quick and simple. Starting in minutes.• Compatible. The UWA widgets are compatible with all major widget platforms (iGoogle, Windows Vista, Apple Dashboard,, iPhone, Opera, blogs, MySpace, etc.).• Simple and elegant. CSS and JavaScript templates to quickly create beautiful environments.• Adaptable. Platform supporting a large number of technologies. 8
  9. 9. Visually NetvibesVisually Netvibes is organized into tabs or flaps. Each flap is anaggregator of various modules and widgets easily displaced, thanks to theAJAX language, which allows the user to organize and design themodules of your choice. 9
  10. 10. NetvibesAn area known as the Health Sciences is particularly sensitiveto date information and quality, so an application likeNetvibes is a key competitive edge in obtaining resultsquickly and easily, requiring by the other hand, a minimumfinancial investment of time and professional dedication.Netvibes as a multi-tool: • Management • Compilation • Dissemination of information. 10
  11. 11. The second phase of the project was to havea shared database to facilitate us to incorporate informationresources easily by all members of the community MILK.o So we decided to continue using 2.0 applications such as Connotea and CiteuLike.o Which on the one hand didn’t represent a financial investment from our part, and favoured integration with the platform developed in Netvibes. 11
  12. 12. Social Reference Managers OrganizationCiteuLike, Connotea,BibSonomy, managers2collab are "social referencemanagers”.The fundamental value ofthese resources is the abilityto collect informationautomatically and this isshared by other users withcommon interests. Collaboration After the analysis Milk considered thatThe basic principle of these the tool that best matched our needstools is the social tagging orfolksonomy, literally "the and goals, their versatility ofclassification drawn up by the information management and theirpeople”. many features was CiteuLike . 12
  13. 13. CiteuLike is a system open toany person subject toregistration, which allows topreserve, manage and sharereferences online scientificand technical documents.One of the features CiteuLikeoffers is that, collects allthe metadata of thedocument. 13
  14. 14. References can also be captured and integrated from acceptedsources. CiteuLike offers a wide range of publishers and contentdistributors, and commercial open: 14

  16. 16. Features • CiteuLike, like Netvibes, has a public space (CiteUlike) and a private citeulike MyCiteUlike called with different options and functions, and absolute permeability between a profile and the other. • Another simple way to add a record is through the URL, ISBN, DOI or PubMed, PMID number. • In turn export opportunities and import from RIS format references. 16

  18. 18. ActionsSHARE: This application allows you to forward areference to any user that follows us, which we follow,or a group, and even spread through Twitter.FOLLOW or WATCHLISTS: In this way, onceincorporated into the document will be visible to all,especially those from our group whom we followthrough.NEIGHBOURS: Within those who use labels, themajority also uses us. It thereby creates a sharedspace where we can follow what they are readingresearchers closest to us.CiteGeist: These are some of the popular articlesposted to CiteuLike in the last 7 days. 18
  19. 19. 1. Interaction and Netvibes CiteuLikeCiteuLike RSS feeds. You can easily incorporate Netvibesmodules: subscribe to our new information, about specific labels, auser or user group. 19
  20. 20. 2. Netvibes CiteuLike integration through widgets. A widget is a small APPLICATION or module that performs a specific function, usually visual, within other applications or operating systems.There are developing at present, two widgets for Netvibes CiteuLike.a. Search in CiteuLike, which allows querying on CiteULike.b. CiteuLike compiling the latest additions to the system overall. 20

  23. 23. ConclusionsBy incorporating and integrating these two tools of Web 2.0freware (Connotea and Citeulike) the cooperation betweenparticipating libraries has increased and it was provided a newchannel that promotes and facilitates the discovery of scientificinformation, that allows any member of MILK the possibility ofreceiving and sharing information through the platform Netvibes.This is a simple, flexible and agile work that allows us to worktogether to broaden the base of the system without imposing asignificant effort on the part of each of the participating members.Netvibes provides a good performance in terms of costefficiency to the user community of our institutions. 23
