In August, 15 young African public librarians travelled to Southeast Asia (Indonesia and Malaysia) to take part in an intensive learning, knowledge-sharing and networking experience organized by EIFL and partners. The 15 were participants in the Initiative for Young African Library Innovators (IYALI). After their journey, we asked them to reflect on the experience, and how they might apply what they learnt in their libraries back home.

DSpace Use On the Rise

DSpace news - სამ, 09/10/2018 - 18:06

From Alberto García Guadarrama, eScire

In 2006, eScire’s group implemented the first repository in Mexico at the Colegio de Posgraduados – COLPOS (College of Postgraduates). 12 years later, eScire is working towards consolidating DSpace repositories as THE option, not only for graduate thesis archival, but also for storing institutions’ documents including: congress and posters communications, pre-prints, post-prints, audio-visual material, journals, patents, standards and regulations, learning materials, and more.

One of our strategies is offering free, online courses, where all academic and, in general, any institution, can easily learn about installing DSpace, workflow, customization and more. This has generated a lot of interest from all  types of institutions, including national institutions such as Politécnico Nacional – IPN (National Polytechnic Institute), up to large and specialized institutions, like CONACYT (Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnologia de México–National Council for Science and Technology of Mexico) Centres. We share information freely with all institutions and as a result, some have asked for more assistance, services, installation, training, consultancy, confirming DSpace as their preferred repository solution. One of our available resources is the YouTube Channel called CCV – Comunidad del Conocimiento Virtual (Virtual Knowledge Community) where we share all recorded webinars. Here you can find the list of free available webinars in Spanish.

Fig. 1. Response on the actual free webinars on open source software (Mexico & Latin America)

Another strategy is promoting and creating the first DSpace Users and Developers Community in Mexico. On September 10-11, 2018 eScire participated in Entre Pares 2018 (Between Peers). It is an annual seminar for publishers and librarians promoted by CONACYT in Mexico. This year it was held in Puebla (where eScire has its main office). This provided an excellent opportunity for us to reach out to most of our clients in Mexico. eScire hosted a welcome party on Sunday, September 9 and initiated the first Users and Developers Dspace Community in Mexico on September  11. Here you can find some photographs.  About 42 attendees participated from CINVESTAV, IPN, UNAM, CIDETEQ, CIATEQ, ULSA, BUAP, UAM, CIBNOR, UMAD, CIESAS, UDG, UPAEP, UAT, UGTO, USON, UNICACH. All participants were interested in joining the community.

OpenAIRE and DuraSpace Partner to Support Greater Functionality in the Global Repository Network

DSpace news - სამ, 09/10/2018 - 16:26

On September 25, 2018 OpenAIRE and DuraSpace signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). Both OpenAIRE and DuraSpace have a shared interest in a robust, interoperable, and functional network of repositories that provide value to the research community and contribute to Open Science and Open Access in Europe and the world.

Repositories collectively act as the foundation for Open Science by collecting and providing access to research outputs, and play a key role in the emerging scholarly commons. To that end, OpenAIRE and DuraSpace aim to ensure that repositories are using up-to-date technologies and adopting international standards and protocols. Through this MOU, OpenAIRE and DuraSpace have agreed to work together on a number of aspects to support their common goals. These activities include enabling DSpace systems to comply with OpenAIRE metadata guidelines, gradual adoption of next generation repository functionalities, and working together on standardized methods for measuring and aggregating usage statistics.

This partnership will support the global community of repository users by improving repository functionality and enabling the adoption of other value-added services by repository platforms and aggregators.

Copyright in Canada: IFLA submits comments on the review of the Copyright Act

IFLA - ორშ, 08/10/2018 - 16:37

With the right copyright laws key to library activities, IFLA actively advocates for positive reforms at the international, regional and national levels. In light of the current review of Canada’s copyright law, IFLA has submitted comments in order to strengthen the voice of libraries in the process.

Canada currently has some exemplary copyright legislation in terms of responding to the needs of libraries while respecting the interests of rightsholders. In its submission, IFLA therefore advocates for the current very positive provisions to remain unchanged, especially as concerns the right to use works for education strengthened in 2012.

There has been much talk of a loss of revenues in the Canadian publishing sector to the adoption of this provision. However, Canadian libraries, especially university libraries, are investing a growing share of their budgets in digital content, a point reflected in publishers’ own reports. Indeed, it is the shift from physical to digital media that seems better to explain falls in photocopying licence fees.

The education fair dealing should therefore not be removed. It gives libraries flexibility to operate, allowing many uses of works that respond to a public interest need and do not unreasonably harm the legitimate interests of rightsholders.

The IFLA submission underlines also the importance to protect copyright exceptions, notably from being cancelled out by contract terms or technological protection measures. IFLA also encourages the government to maintain copyright protection at fifty years after the death of the author.

While several countries have expanded that to seventy years after the death of the author, there are no obvious benefits (and important potential cost, given harm to the public domain).

Furthermore, unevenness, a lack of transparency, and a serious issues around the availability and accessibility of eBooks need to be addressed at the policy level. IFLA also suggests steps to provide legal security for text and data mining, and calls for further exploration of how to preserve indigenous knowledge most effectively.

Read the full submission.
