Copyright Reform: Library Compromises Welcomed But TDM Exception Needs To Go Further

LIBER news - ხუთ, 21/06/2018 - 17:09

As Europe’s largest network of research libraries, LIBER has consistently fought for copyright reforms which support research and innovation in Europe. The report adopted by European Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee (JURI) on proposed changes to the Commission’s Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive includes draft compromises which are important to libraries in the digital…

Sunshine and Clouds: The European Parliament Takes Position on the Copyright Directive

IFLA - ხუთ, 21/06/2018 - 14:18

Yesterday, the Legal affairs committee at the European Parliament (EP) voted on the copyright Directive. There is welcome confirmation of the value of exceptions to copyright as a guarantee of access to knowledge and use of information across borders. But a sting in the tail remains, with broad scope for obliging educators to pay for licences for all uses of works, and a backwards step on technological protection measures.

After having postponed the final vote many times due to difficulties to find agreement, the lead committee in the dossier has finally adopted a position. Given that the Commission and the Council had already defined their positions, many (among which libraries) placed a lot of hope on the European Parliament’s text to counterbalance some of the (negative) provisions, ahead of discussions between the three institutions to adopt a final text later in the year. 

A series of very positive amendments for libraries have been adopted, although some other worrying provisions have managed to get enough support. With adoption of two very controversial provisions (upload filters and the new press publishers’ rights), some parliamentarians will try to push for more discussions not just in the Legal Affairs Committee, but in the EP as a whole. In that case, the position adopted today will be voted upon the plenary of the EP (751 members instead of the 49 in the legal affairs committee), before this is considered the EP’s final position. This vote would take place on the 2 July.

Here is what the legal affairs committee has decided on some of the most relevant articles for libraries:

Text and data mining

The Parliament has agreed on a mandatory exception for research organisations (now including libraries) to undertake text and data mining (reproductions and extractions of data) of materials to which they have lawful access. It is combined with a second exception, which member states do not need to adopt (optional), allowing any person or institution with legal access to the content to do text and data mining, but giving rightholders the possibility to override this by “reserving” this right. 

Datasets created for the purpose of conducting text and data mining will not have to be deleted afterwards but stored in a secure manner, for instance through trusted bodies appointed for this purpose. This will probably have to be defined at a national level. It is a very welcome provision.

The adoption of this exception does not mean that member states cannot go further under a 2001 Directive on copyright.

Although the compromise adopted is much more positive than previous text, IFLA will continue to advocate for a mandatory exception for text and data mining by all individuals and institutions with legal access to the works, defending the idea that the right to read is the right to mine.

Education

Educational activities using digital materials conducted in the premises of a cultural heritage institution benefit from an exception if the activity is lead by an educational institution. Member states can, however, chose not to make the exception applicable if adequate licenses covering theses uses are available in the market.

Preservation

There is a mandatory exception to make reproductions of works for the purpose of preservation, and it cannot be overridden by contract. The provisions allow for cross-border preservation networks.

A new addition has been made, according to which any reproduction of material in the public domain will not be protected by copyright (under a few conditions).

Functioning of exceptions and limitations

A very worrying provision, that was not present in the Commission’s original text, was adopted by the EP. It establishes that any content accessed thanks to an exception shall not be used through another exception.

Out of commerce works

The EP has added a fall-back exception to the licensed-based system proposed by the Commission to solve the problem of out of commerce works. It means that whenever no appropriate licensed-based solutions are in place, the exception will apply for the reproduction, communication to the public and distribution of out of commerce works by cultural heritage institutions.

The definition of out of commerce works has been amended to explicitly include works that were never in commerce under the system.

Union Legal Deposit

The EP has adopted a provision on a European legal (at the European Parliament’s library) of any electronic publication “dealing with union-related matters” (followed by a non-exhaustive list of topics). The deposit would consist on one copy of every publication on the topic for works published, printed or imported in the Union.

New press publishers right

Although many were expecting the Parliament to delete this article, it was kept. From the library sector, there are worries that it will add another layer of rights to be cleared when using press publications. There are also concerns about the broader implication when linking and sharing information. On the bright side, scientific journals are not affected by this provision.

Upload filters

This other very controversial article sets up an obligation for online content sharing service provides to monitor and filter (taking content down when needed) all content uploaded by user to ensure that no content infringing copyright is available. Only one positive aspect can be underlined: this obligation will not apply to educational and scientific repositories, among other services acting in a non-commercial purpose capacity.

TAKE ACTION!

As mentioned above, and although this vote has been a major step, there is more to come on this dossier and IFLA will keep engaging with decisionmakers to ensure the best result possible.

IFLA - ოთხ, 20/06/2018 - 14:04

The PAC Regional Centre for Asia at the National Diet Library (NDL) of Japan is one of the sixteen IFLA PAC Centres that are spread all over the globe. The PAC Centres have a wide range of expertise concerning preservation and conservation as well as safeguarding cultural heritage. The PAC Regional Centre for Asia is specialised in paper conservation and digitization, it was this expertise that was shared with experts from Syria.

Two experts from the Directorate-General of Antiquities and Museums, Ms. Razan al Jundi and Ms. Fatat Kamel Jadid were invited to the PAC Regional Centre for Asia in Japan for two weeks to participate in a Training Workshop for Preservation of Paper Cultural Heritage organized as a part of the Silk Road Friendship Project funded by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

The four-day workshop from May 22 to 25, 2018 was spent on learning the techniques for preserving paper documents and books. During the workshop, Ms. al Jundi and Ms. Jadid learned basic repair techniques for mending torn or damaged pages using Japanese paper as well as how to make protective enclosures.

The workshop was very successful and the PAC Regional Centre for Asia hope to be able invite and work with more experts from around the world.

Statement from DSpace Steering Group on the DSpace 7 Data Model

DSpace news - ორშ, 18/06/2018 - 18:57

The DSpace Steering Group strongly recommends that the DSpace 7 data model should be expanded to support new object types (entities) to provide the following immediate benefits: alignment with the COAR Next Generation Repositories recommendations (especially around identifiers, e.g. ORCID), compliance with OpenAIRE v4 guidelines, and ensuring that DSpace stays current and competitive with other repository solutions in the landscape while being interoperable with existing research information systems.

In order to achieve this, the Steering Group recommends adopting a flexible, configurable data model which allows existing DSpace institutions to choose whether to enable new (out-of-the-box) entities in their system. The solution should initially concentrate on entities required to meet OpenAIRE v4 guidelines, while also allowing institutions to create/design additional entities to meet other use cases. The solution should be built incrementally (over several releases), so as to not adversely affect the DSpace upgrade process. The end result should be a system that supports configurable entities in its data model, as this will allow for DSpace to be adapted/extended for additional use cases. However, in order to stay true to the goals described in the DSpace 2015-18 Strategic Plan, DSpace should avoid becoming too specific to a single repository use case. Instead, a goal of configurable entities should be to allow third-party extensions or add-ons to extend the DSpace data model for specific use cases. One example may be DSpace-CRIS, a widely adopted DSpace extension to support CRIS use cases. Configurable entities should allow for such extensions to be more easily installed/maintained in out-of-the-box DSpace.

For the reasons stated above, the Steering Group recommends the new data model be based on the Option #3 proposal (see DSpace Entities Overview / Discussion document), where Entities are proposed as an extension of the Item model. The creation of this new model should be coordinated by DuraSpace / DSpace Steering, and be developed in collaboration with the global DSpace community. By doing so, the configurable entities will be a transparent and inclusively developed model ensuring that DSpace is able to face the new challenges and address the needs and requirements of its global community.

We welcome the DSpace community’s involvement and support going forward, and it will be incorporated as opportunities arise.

VIVO Updates for June 17 — Nominations for Leadership Group, EuroCRIS, Membership Drive

DSpace news - ორშ, 18/06/2018 - 18:20

From Mike Conlon, VIVO Project Director

Nominations for Leadership Group open Each year, VIVO elects three community members to serve on the VIVO Leadership Group. Any person at a VIVO member institution can nominate up to three people to serve. To make a nomination, you must be at a VIVO member institution. Not at a member institution? That’s easy to fix, become a member. To become a member, see Become a Member Now that you are at member institution, send the names of the people you would like to nominate to Kristi Searle at Duraspace. You can nominate anyone you like, including people who have served as community members previously. Kristi will check with each person nominated to make sure they are willing to serve. If they are, they will be asked to provide a short bio to use in the election. Nominations are due June 25, 2018. We look forward to hearing from you!

EuroCRIS I had the pleasure of attending the 2018 EuroCRIS meeting in Umeå Sweden this past week. EuroCRIS meets every other year, and gathers people interested in “CRIS” systems — current research information systems — these are systems that record the research outputs of a research organization. Some people refer to VIVO as a CRIS system. CRIS systems focus on research outputs, not people, and often are directly associated with repositories where the research outputs are stored. In Europe, due to open access and other compliance and reporting requirements, it is increasingly common for a university to *require* that all research outputs be stored in the university’s repository. A very popular choice for such work is DSpace, another Duraspace project. DSpace-CRIS is a modification of DSpace that supports the production of simple profiles of researchers with content in the repository. Much of the conference health with issues of CRIS systems, DSpace-CRIS, and the compliance requirements.

I had the chance to meet and discuss these ides with colleagues from the VIVO community, DSpace community, and Duraspace including Michele Mennielli (Duraspace), David Baker (CASRAI), Brian Lowe (Ontocale), Tatiana Walter (TIB Hannover), Anna Guillaumet (SIGMA, and VIVO Leadership Group), Jordi Cuni (SIGMA), Andrea Bollini (4Science), Caroline Birkle (Managing Director Converis), Ed Simons (President, EuroCRIS), Anna Clements (University of Glasgow), Susana Moriati (4Science), Pablo de Castro (EuroCRIS board), Jan Dvorack (Infoscience, Czech Republic), and Miguel-Angel Sicilia (University of Alcalá, Spain) .

Tatiana Walter gave an excellent talk on the effort to map KDSF in Germany to VIVO. Basic concepts of mapping were covered as well as difficulties that were resolved in the mapping of KDSF. Her talk will be available on the conference web site.

EuroCRIS has a CRIS system output format, CERIF-XML. Many CRIS systems are able to produce CERIF-XML. A mapping of CERIF-XML to VIVO was completed several years ago. It needs to be updated. With a new mapping, an XSLT could be constructed to export VIVO RDF triples from CERIF-compatible CRIS systems. We hope to hear more about the updated mapping and XSLT transform work in the months to come.

The meeting was an excellent chance to discuss CRIS concepts with European colleagues, and to keep up to date on CRIS thinking and activities in Europe.

Membership Drive Interested in helping VIVO grow its membership? Please contact Julia Trimmer VIVO is looking for a person to join the membership drive.

Internet for People: IFLA signs onto joint letter to G20 Presidency

IFLA - კვი, 17/06/2018 - 13:38

IFLA has added its name to a letter to Mauricio Macri, President of Argentina and host of the G20 – a gathering of the governments of the world’s biggest economies. The letter sets out a number of areas where policy-makers should act to ensure the Internet works, first and foremost, for its users.

Over the past three decades, the Internet has become ever more central to the way we learn, research, create and communicate. As such, the importance of ensuring that it develops in a way that helps users achieve their goals grows. Libraries, with their long expertise in managing and giving access to information, and well-established values of service to users, can help.

IFLA has therefore long engaged in making the case for giving everyone access to the Internet – notably through public access schemes. We have also called for laws and practices that make this access as full and meaningful as possible.

It is welcome that this year’s G20 is looking at digital and Internet policy issues. Bringing together the biggest global players is important, given that individual national approaches run counter to the global nature of the net. It is a chance to commit to an Internet that works for people.

To make the most of this opportunity, IFLA and other like-minded organisations have signed a joint letter to Mauricio Macri, President of Argentina (the 2018 host of the G20). This establishes five areas where governments can act:

  • Meaningful Access: investment in affordable access and digital literacy programmes
  • Privacy and Data Protection: ensuring citizens have greater control over their own data
  • Freedom of Expression: promote and maintain an open Internet for everyone
  • Cybersecurity: develop cybersecurity tools that respect human rights
  • Increased competition: allow for innovation and protect consumers

IFLA Secretary-General Gerald Leitner said:

“As the Internet becomes ever more essential to the creation and sharing of information, we need to ensure that it works in a way that protects rights and promotes development. IFLA is proud to join the other signatories to this letter in setting out the way forwards”

IFLA encourages its members to use this letter in their own advocacy work, in order to make the case at all levels for an Internet that is truly focused on improving people’s lives.

Registration Open: Fedora and Samvera Camp in Berlin

DSpace news - ხუთ, 14/06/2018 - 19:42

DuraSpace and Data Curation Experts invite you to attend Fedora and Samvera Camp at the Berlin State Library November 5 – 8, 2018.

Fedora is the robust, modular, open source repository platform for the management and dissemination of digital content. The latest version of Fedora features vast improvements in scalability, linked data capabilities, research data support, modularity, ease of use and more.

Samvera (previously known as Hydra) is a grass-roots, open source community creating best in class digital asset management solutions for Libraries, Archives, Museums and others.  The Samvera software offers flexible and rich user interfaces tailored to distinct content types on top of a robust back end – giving adopters the best of both worlds.

Training will begin with the basics and build toward more advanced concepts – no prior Fedora or Samvera experience is required. Participants can expect to come away with a deep dive Fedora and Samvera learning experience coupled with multiple opportunities for applying hands-on techniques working with experienced trainers from both communities.

Previous Fedora Camps and Samvera Camps (previously known as Hydra Camps) have been held throughout the United States, United Kingdom and in the Republic of Ireland.  Most recently, DCE hosted the inaugural Advanced Samvera (Hydra) Camp focusing on advanced Samvera developer skills.  

The upcoming combined camp curriculum will provide a comprehensive overview of Fedora and Samvera by exploring such topics as:

  • Core & Integrated features
  • Data modeling and linked data
  • Content and Metadata management
  • Migrating to Fedora 4.x
  • Deploying Fedora and Samvera in production
  • Ruby, Rails, and collaborative development using Github
  • Introductory Blacklight including search and faceting
  • Preservation Services

The curriculum will be delivered by a knowledgeable team of instructors from the Fedora and Samvera communities: Mark Bussey (DCE), Bess Sadler (DCE), Andrew Woods (DuraSpace), and David Wilcox (DuraSpace)

Attendance is limited to the first 30 registrants.  DuraSpace Members and Registered Service Providers receive a discounted rate.  Register before September 14th to receive a $50 discount!
