DuraSpace-euroCRIS Joint Pre-conference Workshop at OR2019

DSpace news - ოთხ, 20/03/2019 - 20:39

DuraSpace and euroCRIS will co-host a one-day workshop to focus on interoperability and integrations between repositories and CRIS platforms during the Open Repository 2019 Conference in Hamburg, Germany – on Monday, June 10th, 2019.

In February 2017 DuraSpace and euroCRIS signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the intent of working with the respective communities in order to share ideas and best practices on how repositories interoperate with CRIS platforms and to identify together the right technologies and standards to make this interoperability smoother and stronger. Both organizations promote a scholarly and research ecosystem much more integrated than it is today and CRIS systems and repositories are two important components of such an ecosystem.

One year ago, during the euroCRIS’ CRIS2018 Conference euroCRIS and DuraSpace jointly organized a pre-conference event to explore relations between DSpace and CRIS systems. This year we are extending the conversation to all other repositories and software systems that are part of the DuraSpace community and beyond.

The workshop is organized in two different sessions: in the morning the focus will be on the technical challenges posed by the need to make repositories and CRIS systems interoperable or, in some cases, fully integrated. Several case studies on technical information exchange workflows will be presented from a platform-agnostic perspective, and a discussion will be held afterwards among the presenters, the workshop organisers and the event attendees. This session will be of particular interest for developers and research information management practitioners; in the afternoon we will explore the multiple applications of repository/CRIS platforms in areas like metadata management for publications and data, the provision of funding information across platforms or the introduction of a growing range of persistent identifiers. Same as for the first part, the session will include a number of case studies and will be followed by a discussion and a Q&A. This session will mainly be addressed at repository managers.

All participants will have a chance to get together and share their experience and use cases to the benefit of the whole community.

We encourage members of the repository and research information management communities to send their proposals submitting an abstract using this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1J9jzyGvmrrqAWIDpyIvU61InvseZpn7I0xsZ7hTH3V8/edit?ts=5c924662

Over the last two decades, there has been steady progress towards open access (OA), which is the immediate, online, free and unrestricted availability of research literature. However, the transition has not been as quick as was hoped.

IFLA Collaborates with United Nations on the SDG Book Club

IFLA - პარ, 15/03/2019 - 16:04

IFLA is participating in the SDG Book Club, an initiative launched by the United Nations alongside organisations representing publishers, booksellers and books for youth. Through this, we hope to help more young people engage with the Global Goals, especially in libraries.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a framework for organising action at the global level to improve people’s lives. Yet to be effective, it is important to bring global goals to the national and local level.

IFLA itself has worked intensively to do this within the library field. The International Advocacy Programme has engaged librarians in almost two thirds of countries around the world.

Through hundreds of events, training sessions and meetings, IFLA has raised awareness of the SDGs, and the importance of information in achieving them.

The SDG Book Club offers a further means of achieving this goal.  It is the result of cooperation between United Nations, IFLA, and the International Publishers Association, the International Board on Books for Youth, the European and International Booksellers’ Federation and the Bologna International Children’s Book Fair.

IFLA Secretary-General Gerald Leitner said: Achieving the Global Goals will need action from everyone. The SDG Book Club offers a great way to introduce today’s young people to the key issues of our time, to mobilise them, and to and prepare them to be the doers and leaders of tomorrow. I am proud that libraries are helping give access to this key information, and to inspire new generations.

By defining a selection of books for young people in all official United Nations languages, it will provide a way for tomorrow’s decision-makers to engage with the issues the SDGs raise.

Crucially, the selection is not an exhaustive list, but only a starting point. The goal is to encourage discussion about the SDGs in libraries and other settings around the world. We look forward to launching the first selection next month.

You can find out more on the SDG Book Club website, and read the press release.

Laos copyright law: EIFL review, recommendations

EIFL-OA news and events - ხუთ, 14/03/2019 - 12:17

Libraries rely on copyright exceptions and limitations to allow everyday uses of copyright-protected materials, for example, to provide a researcher with a copy of a journal article, to make an accessible format copy for a blind student, or to make a preservation copy.

For this reason, many copyright laws include specific exceptions for libraries to enable such activities. In cases where the law does not provide a specific provision, libraries have to turn to other provisions, such as exceptions for quotation and teaching (if present), to see if they fit library activities.

LYRASIS and DuraSpace Announce Merger: Expanding the Capacity of the Global Scholarly and Scientific Research Ecosystem

DSpace news - ოთხ, 13/03/2019 - 16:38

Atlanta, GA – March 13, 2019 – LYRASIS and DuraSpace are pleased to announce that by July 1, 2019, they will officially merge to create one dynamic organization empowered to help drive scalable change, new technologies and vital services.

This merger will create a new model for collaboration, innovation and development in the landscape of academic, research, and public libraries, galleries, archives, and museums. The merged organization will leverage its expertise, reach, and capacity to create and build new programs, services and technologies that enable durable, persistent access to data and services. The LYRASIS and DuraSpace communities will continue to benefit from the existing programs and services that they receive from each organization.

The newly merged organization will be an on-ramp to a worldwide collaborative community of more than 4,000 institutions and nine open source, community-supported technology programs across six continents. In addition, it will build capacity in the scholarly ecosystem through open technologies, services, funding opportunities, expertise, training, and support.

Both organizations bring world class experts and a common vision for the future of knowledge as it is used across their overlapping memberships. They share a common drive to provide end-to-end solutions that reflect the governance, fair pricing, technical road map, and community expectations of their memberships.

Erin Tripp, DuraSpace’s Executive Director explains, “We found that our two organizations were working more and more toward similar goals such as stewarding community-supported and open source initiatives in the scholarly ecosystem. We each observed a growing need for innovation, research and development, and thought leadership. I feel strongly that by working together, we can have a greater impact on our communities.”

Robert Miller, CEO of LYRASIS, says of the merger, “Over the past three years we have tested and launched a thought leadership and program development initiative that combines collective risk mitigation and community engagement with milestone-based funding. The rapid adoption of this by 10% of our membership has confirmed to us that this technology platform and service focus is more critical now than ever before. Leveraging DuraSpace’s global institution base with our strategic end-to-end solution focus will be a substantial win for our members.”

LYRASIS and DuraSpace have traditionally delivered high-quality content and cultural heritage solutions to their diverse memberships and will continue to do so. All services, programs, purchases and subscriptions through LYRASIS and DuraSpace will continue without interruption. No action needs to be taken at this time by any members to ensure continuity of service.

This merger strengthens each organization’s core competencies and offers new opportunities for expansion. LYRASIS will be the public name of the merged organization and led by Robert Miller. Within LYRASIS, a newly-created DuraSpace Community Supported Programs division led by Erin Tripp will be the future home of all existing DuraSpace Open Source Software projects and all LYRASIS community supported programs including ArchivesSpace and CollectionSpace, as well as DSpace, Fedora, and VIVO.

About LYRASIS

LYRASIS, a not-for-profit membership organization of more than 1000 libraries, museums, and archives supports enduring access to our shared academic, scientific and cultural heritage through leadership in open technologies, content services, digital solutions and collaboration with archives, libraries, museums and knowledge communities worldwide.

About DuraSpace
