Unlocking conference videos by DOI/MFID for software project communities


Published on

Das TIB AV-Portal der Technischen Informationsbibliothek in Hannover ist eine kunden- und bedarfsorientierte Plattform für hochwertige wissenschaftliche Videos aus dem Bereich Technik und Naturwissenschaften. Automatische Szenenerkennung sowie Text-, Audio- und Bildanalyse werden zur automatischen Anreicherung mit Metadaten genutzt. Die Filme sind mit einem Digital Object Identifier (DOI) und - auf Segmentbasis - mit Media Fragment Identifiern versehen, womit die Filme sekundengenau dereferenziert und zitiert werden können. Praxisnutzen und Potentiale dieser Infrastruktur für die Erschließung und Nachnutzung in Wissenschaft, Lehre und Industrie werden exemplarisch am Beispiel der FOSS4G-Konferenzvideos der Open Source Geospatial Foundation, vorgestellt.

Unlocking conference videos by DOI/MFID for software project communities

  1. 1. THE TIB AV-PORTAL: UNLOCKING CONFERENCE VIDEOS BY DOI/MFID FOR SOFTWARE PROJECT COMMUNITIES. M. PLANK // P. LÖWE // B. DREES // INTRODUCTION Scientific audio-visual media such as videos of research experiments, computer animations or conference recordings have become an important part of scientific communication due to the complexity of modern research in the fields of Science and Technology. These media contribute to a better understanding and discussion of the research because they can describe dynamic phenomena which cannot be precisely detailed in words and pictures and let us explore environmental phenomena more efficiently. // THE VALUE OF SCIENTIFIC CONFERENCE RECORDINGS Traditionally, the results presented at conferences are published in proceedings. Today, in many cases those talks are also being recorded and published after the conference. These videos are an important part of scientific communication and also cultural heritage items. Let us make those conference recordings searchable, citable and long- term preserved. // THE TIB AV-PORTAL The TIB AV-Portal provides access to high grade scientific videos from the fields of technology/engineering, architecture, chemistry, information technology, mathematics and physics in English and German. // GEOSCIENCES-RELATED COLLECTION > Content from Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Information Technology, Engineering and Architecture > Conference recordings, including Geoinformatics, e. g.:             > FOSS4G 2013, 2015, 2016             > FOSSGIS 2011–2016             > FrOSCon 2014, 2015, (2016 coming soon) > Historical educational videos (IWF)) // INNOVATIVE SERVICES IN-VIDEO SEARCHING Innovative search and analysis tools improve the search for and the re-use of scientific videos by enabling pinpoint access to individual video segments. Content-based filter facets for search results enable the exploration of the increasing number of videos. SCIENTIFIC CREDIT BY DOI-BASED CITATION All videos are assigned by Digital Object Identifiers (DOI). By using media fragment identifier (MFID) video segments can be cited as easily as a chapter or a page in a book. As a result videos can be published in a scientifically sound way and be linked via DOIs to other research work like the corresponding article or an expedition documentary and its field notebook. UPLOAD AND PRESERVE YOUR SCIENTIFIC VIDEOS The TIB AV Portal is the ideal, reliable infrastructure for the long term preservation and access to scientific videos. Please contact TIB if Videos can be easily uploaded @ AV.TIB.EU FIGURE 1: The TIB AV-Portal focuses mainly on contemporary scientific videos from the six core subjects of the German National Library of Science and Technology. These fields provide significant input for the Geosciences. In addition, historical educational videos from the German Institute for Scientific Film (IWF) are being published online. FIGURE 2: Conference videos from the german FOSSGIS 2016 conference (part of OSGeo) on the use of volume data for geologic structures as part of an innovative web portal for the State of Brandenburg. Note the extended Metadata which enable advanced search capabilities within the video content. (DOI: 10.5446/14813) FIGURE 3: Conference video excerpt from the global FOSS4G conference (DOI: 10.5446/20452): The slide demonstrates how DOI-referenced video content can be searched via DOI- enabled search portal, like the DataCite portal. Such video excerpts can be cited by DOI-MediaFragmentIdentifier (MFID). This enables self-referential structures in scientific video communication. Within the AV-Portal, an embed code allows for reuse in other Web 2.0 portals, while the content canalsobedownloaded.(DOI:10.5446/20452#T=14:03,15:02) // CONTENT PROVIDER EXAMPLES The primary purpose of the signature is to graphically identify the Corps and its Field Operating Activities in a uniform and communicative way. All signatures are a combination of the Corps Mark and the name which describes a specific Field Operating Activity. No additional elements, typography or graphic devices should ever be added to the basic signature configuration. Corps Signature The Corps Signature consists of the mark and the Corps of Engineers name set in the Helvetica Medium type face. Both elements are placed flush to the left. This signature is to be used as the graphic identifier on those items common to the entire Corps of Engineers. Division, District and other Field Operating Activity Signatures There are individual signatures for the Office of the Chief of Engineers and for each Field Operating Activity in the Corps. The Corps Signature is the principal graphic identifier to be used by these activities on all publications, signage, vehicles, etc. The individual Field Operating Activity signature is a modification of the basic Corps Signature. It is formed by placing the name of the particular FOA below the Corps name. FOA names are set in Helve- tica Regular, a lighter-weight type face so that, while emphasis remains on the Corps name and mark, each Corps activity is identified in its own unique identification signature and, at the same time, is clearly related to the Corps as a whole. There are no other acceptable versions of the signature. Do not alter the typogra- phy, mark size, or general configuration of the signature. Use original reproduction artwork found in Chapter 9 of this manual at all times. Avoid second generation reproduction. For detailed guidance on the application or use of the signature, refer to the appli- cable sections of this manual. Contact the Corps Graphics Coordinator for advice and assistance on unique or special appli- cations of the signature.
