VIVO Updates September 16, 2018 — updated web site, Ontocale is a VIVO service provider, new site registry, camp is coming up, and see you in Germany!

DSpace news - ორშ, 17/09/2018 - 00:06

Web site  The VIVO web site has been updated.  See http://vivoweb.org.  Everything looks a bit better, the membership page and the site registry (see below) are much better.  Some things moved around, to improve navigation and simplify the site.  A “Features” page describing VIVO’s features has been added, along with “Join the Community” and “Governance”.  All the pages on the site have been updated.  We hope you like this update to the VIVO web site.

New service provider  Ontocale, headquartered in Bucharest Romania, and led by Brian Lowe, has become a service provider for VIVO.  Brian was one of the originators of VIVO and has deep knowledge of the software and the ontology.  He has helped many sites with the implementations and customizations.  Ontocale joins Clarivate and Symplectic as service providers for VIVO.

Sites  VIVO has a new registry of its sites.  The new registry is much easier to use, more attractive, and easier to update than the old registry.  Do you have a VIVO site?  Not sure if your site is in the registry?  You can visit the new registry here:  https://duraspace.org/registry/?filter_10=VIVO Click on your site and check the information. You can submit changes to update the information.  Do you have a site that’s not in the registry?  You can add easily your site.  We regularly learn of new sites.  Please add your site to the site registry!

VIVO Camp  VIVO Camp is coming up, October 18-20 at the Butler Library at Columbia University.  Camp is a great opportunity to learn more about VIVO, the VIVO ontology, and what it takes to do a VIVO project.  You can learn more and register here:  https://conta.cc/2v93x4x

German VIVO workshop  I’m writing from Hannover, Germany where I will taking part in the third annual German VIVO workshop, organized by TIB.  I look forward to meeting everyone and learning more about VIVO in Germany!

Go VIVO!

Save the date and we hope to see you in Podgorica, Montenegro on September 4th to 6th 2019!

Program Chair

RubenVerborgh is a professor of Semantic Web technology at Ghent University – IMEC and a research affiliate at the Decentralized Information Group at MIT. The VIVO community had a chance to hear Professor Verborgh at the VIVO 2016 Conference when he presented his talk: “The Future is Federated” and lead a workshop titled: “Linked Data Fragments: Hands-On Publishing and Querying.” The leadership of the VIVO project was inspired by his presentations and added the Triple Pattern Fragments (TPF) server to the VIVO software.

Professor Verborgh aims to build a more intelligent generation of clients for a decentralized Web at the intersection of Linked Data and hypermedia-driven Web APIs. Through the creation of Linked Data Fragments, he introduced a new paradigm for query execution at Web-scale. He has co-authored two books on Linked Data, and contributed to more than 250 publications for international conferences and journals on Web-related topics.

About Podgorica

As the capital of Montenegro, Podgorica is used to hosting events of similar size. In addition, in 2017 Montenegro has been chosen by Vogue magazine as one of the most tempting destinations to travel, because of its natural beauty and significantly more affordable prices compared to its neighbors Italy, Greece, and Croatia.

Podgorica is the capital of Montenegro with population of about 150,000, positioned in the middle of the country, in a picturesque area with 2 rivers. Prepare to swim, hike, and enjoy the natural beauty of Montenegro before, after, or maybe during the conference.

The conference center in Podgorica is located close to cultural monuments such as: Ribnica fortres, Old city and Clock tower, King Nikola’s winter residence and Kings park.

Historic places

Derivative, composite image by M. Conlon

The city is located close to the:

  • Mediterranean coast with sandy beaches and historic cities of Bar, UNESCO-protected bay of Kotor, and Budva (1 hour car ride from Podgorica to Budva)
  • Lake Skadar National Park with fishing villages Rijeka Crnojevica, Vranjine and Virpazar (30 minute car ride from Podgorica to Rijeka Crnojevića)
  • Durmitor National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site (2 hour ride from center of Podgorica to glacial lakes and stunning mountain peaks of the Dinaric Alps)
  • City of Cetinje, the Old Royal Capital of Montenegro, is a beautiful historic town, just a 30 minute drive from the center of Podgorica. In Cetinje, the visitors can see the Blue Castle — the official home of today’s president of Montenegro. Cetinje is home to many impressive historic buildings that housed embassies during the 19th century, and the monastery that allegedly keeps the right hand of John the Baptist and a piece of the Holy Cross.
  • Ostrog Monastery built into the cliff of a mountain located about 1 hour from Podgorica by car.
The weather

During this time of year you will enjoy a mild, very pleasant climate.

The venue

The LOC has selected the Hilton Hotel as our conference venue which can accommodate 150 attendees in its conference rooms.  

You can also stay at the Hilton hotel where rates should be around 125 Euros per night. Alternatively, on-line sources such as booking.com and similar web-sites offer affordable luxury residential apartment accommodation located a short distance (3-5 blocks) from the conference center.

VIVO Updates September 9, 2018 — VIVO workshop in Germany, September Sprint, the SPARQL Book

DSpace news - სამ, 11/09/2018 - 17:04

Third annual VIVO workshop in Hannover, Germany, September 17-18  Next week is the third annual VIVO workshop in Hannover, Germany, organized by TIB.  See https://events.tib.eu/vivoworkshop2018/ I hope to see you there!

September Sprint  VIVO is planning a development sprint for September 17-28.  See http://bit.ly/2CaFnxh

The SPARQL Book  SPARQL is a query language used to get data from VIVO.  You can use SPARQL to make reports and visualizations, inspect data in your VIVO, build new interfaces, and much more.  Learning SPARQL is fun (at least it was for me).  One reason learning SPARQL was fun was a great book, the SPARQL book Learning SPARQL by Bob DuCharme.  If you are learning about the semantic web, RDF, and VIVO, you won’t do better than DuCharme’s clear text. Highly recommended for all those working with VIVO and VIVO data.

DuCharme, B. Learning Sparql, 2nd edition.  O’Reilly. 2013.  386 pg.  ISBN13  978-1449371432.

If you’d like a gentle hands-on introduction to the VIVO ontology, RDF, and SPARQL, consider attending VIVO Camp at Columbia University in New York City, in October.  We cover ontology, SPARQL, and much more.  Information on the camp is available here:  https://conta.cc/2v93x4x

Announcing the New DuraSpace Service Provider (DSP) Program

DSpace news - ორშ, 10/09/2018 - 17:57

We’re happy to announce the DuraSpace Registered Service Provider (RSP) Program has been restructured and rebranded in 2018 as the DuraSpace Service Provider (DSP) Program. It offers different types of service providers in our community, large and small, more ways to collaborate with DuraSpace.

The DSP establishes partnerships with service providers that wish to provide open source software services with the support of DuraSpace.

The goals of the new Program are four-fold:

• Working more closely with open source service providers to generate qualified leads and promote the adoption of DuraSpace open technologies to a broader group of prospect organizations
• Celebrating the expertise and in-kind contributions of service providers as it propels the quality and functionality of our code-bases and open knowledge to empower users
• Providing support and mentorship to service providers who want to start contributing to our communities
• Generating revenue to fund DuraSpace staff positions to manage code contributions/ merges, releases, bug fixes, and community leadership and outreach efforts in support of DuraSpace open technologies and communities

The new DuraSpace Service Provider (DSP) Program has three tiers:

Certified DuraSpace Partners
Certified DuraSpace Contributors
DuraSpace Listed Service Providers

Each tier has categories for DSpace, Fedora (Samvera/Islandora), VIVO, DuraCloud, and ArchivesDirect.
Our current list of service providers is available, here: https://duraspace.org/community/service-providers/. A summary of the DSP program is available in our Program Outline.

NOW AVAILABLE: The DSpace Community Annual Report 2017 – July 2018

DSpace news - ხუთ, 06/09/2018 - 17:40

The DSpace Community Annual Report 2017 – July 2018 is now available. The Report provides an overview of the user community, membership, two brief community profiles, a technical overview, governance, finance, and events.

Download the DSpace Community Annual Report 2017 – July 2018 here.

We invite you to learn more about the DSpace community, current initiatives, and progress towards the release of DSpace 7 in the Community Annual Report. Thanks to members of the DSpace community for their help in developing this report: Terry Brady (Georgetown University Library); Claudio Cortese (4Science); Tim Donohue (DuraSpace); Felicity Dykas (University of Missouri Libraries); Valorie Hollister (DuraSpace); Salwa Ismail (Georgetown University Library); (Mariya Maistrovskaya (University of Toronto Libraries); Michele Mennielli (DuraSpace); Carol Minton Morris (DuraSpace); Samu Viita (National Library of Finland)

DSpace is a community-based, open source project that produces the DSpace repository platform. With a 16-year history, strong membership support, and active participation from a wide variety of stakeholder institutions located all over the world 2017-2018 was a year of progress toward the key community priority of developing and releasing DSpace 7 with a new, single Angular user interface and enhanced REST API.

The technical roadmap for 2017 is focused on DSpace 7 development. As a production repository DSpace needs to meet the needs of large and small stakeholder institutions, so minor updates have been released as needed. At the same time the bulk of technical efforts were focused on DSpace 7 which included a great deal of groundwork and foundation support for the new REST API. Plans for a Beta release of DSpace 7 with support for entities are on track for early 2019.

Building and sustaining a strong community is a central goal for the DSpace Project. To this end, training webinars and user group meetings were offered throughout the year; see the complete list in the Events section at the end of the report for details.

Your feedback is welcome. Please send comments and suggestions to Carol Minton Morris cmmorris@duraspace.org.

Adding Language Proficiency to VIVO   The Ontology Improvement Task Force is developing new assertions for specifying language expertise.  As in “Mike speaks English”. The group is considering ISO 639 as a standard set of languages, the Library of Congress RDF as standard URI, and language proficiencies based on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_European_Framework_of_Reference_for_Languages and http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/iso639-1.html  These standards, when implemented in VIVO will add to VIVO’s ability to represent the expertise of people.  Language coding is also planned for works, indicating the language of the work.  The issue is here in JIRA:  VIVO-1544

If you have comments regarding the representation of language proficiency, existing models and ontologies, or comments on these standards, please share on the ontology channel on Slack.  You can join VIVO Slack here:  http://bit.ly/vivo-slack

We have a Steering Group!  As a result of recent elections, and volunteering, we now have a VIVO Steering Group.  The Steering Group is Paul AlbertAnna GuillaumetMark NewtonDong Joon (DJ) LeeAlex Viggio,  Julia Trimmer , Mike Conlon , andVioleta Ilik. The Steering Group addresses operational issues in the project, and creates materials, suggestions, and proposals for the Leadership Group.  If you have any ideas about the project, please share them with members of the Steering Group.  They would like to hear from you.

Action Planning  As you may recall, the VIVO Project created a year-long process of review and planning that began March 1 with a face to face meeting at Duke University.  Five action planning groups were formed – Vision, Product Evolution, Resources, Governance, and Community Development.  Each was tasked with developing recommendations for Leadership.  You can always find a current report of the action planning efforts here:  http://bit.ly/2CbpaYL

Share your approach to making data for VIVO  Do you have home grown tools for making data for your VIVO?  Do you use one of the common ingest tools?  We’re collecting ingest tools and approaches here:  Ingest Tools – Who Is Using What  Please add yours!

OpenHarvester Muhammad Javed has developed a new tool for harvester publications for individuals called OpenHarvester.  You can find it on GitHub here:  https://github.com/mjaved495/OpenHarvester  OpenHarvester finds publications in various open indices and learns about the author as it is used.  You may want to try it and provide feedback.

Hook Your Repository Up to the Repository Analytics & Metrics Portal (RAMP)

DSpace news - ხუთ, 30/08/2018 - 16:04

From Atmire   Share your repository usage data with the international RAMP initiative for repository usage analysis and comparison.

Montana State University, the Association of Research Libraries, the University of New Mexico, and OCLC Research have joined as partners to examine the difficulties that libraries face in producing accurate reports on the use of their digital repositories.

The Repository Analytics & Metrics Portal (RAMP) is a web service that improves the accuracy of institutional repository (IR) analytics and provides IR managers with the following capabilities:

  • Persistent access to accurate counts of file downloads from IR.
  • Implementation with minimal training or configuration.
  • The potential to aggregate IR metrics across organizations for consistent benchmarking and analysis.
How to join

In order to join RAMP , it is a prerequisite that you are using Google Analytics and Google Search Console to track your repository traffic. The RAMP team will provide you with a small verification file that Atmire can deploy on DSpace, in order to authorize the RAMP team to access data from your repository’s Google account.

This integration is very light weight and only grants the RAMP team with READ-ONLY access to the Google Search Console data. No personally identifiable information (PII) is collected. After this integration has been set up, you receive a login to the RAMP portal, where you can see traffic reports for your repository and compare them with others

Get started today

Simply send an email to ramp.msu@gmail.com, stating the url of your repository and your role as the contact person to get the ball rolling.

Harvard Upgrades DASH DSpace Repository

DSpace news - ხუთ, 30/08/2018 - 16:01

From Atmire  The Harvard Library Office for Scholarly Communication worked together with Atmire on a major upgrade to Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard (DASH).

Pioneering in the field of Open Access, Harvard originally launched the Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard (DASH) repository on September 1st 2009. Over the years, Harvard added dozens of customizations, including workflow tools, DASH Stories, and MyDASH statistics, to meet the needs of its staff, authors, and readers.

Driven by its vision for a more useful open-access repository, the OSC team committed to upgrade DASH, and turned to Atmire to implement the major new iteration of DASH.

We’re very happy with the upgrade to DASH. For nine years we’d been using an early version of DSpace, heavily customized for our needs. It gave us exactly what we wanted and worked beautifully. But the constant tweaking took its toll. The upgrade embraces all our major customizations, reduces our maintenance load, makes it easier for new developers to join the project, and adds features we couldn’t easily have added on our own. Atmire knows the DSpace universe, and it was a pleasure to work with them on the new code and the migration of our content.
