US Elsevier announces enhancements to Knovel platform, provides faster access to engineering answers and insights into complex engineering problems - 20 Oct 2017

Elsevier, the information analytics business specialising in science and health, is making it easier for engineers, researchers and students to find answers and insights into increasingly complex engineering problems, and build foundational knowledge, with enhancements to its flagship engineering decision support solution, Knovel.

Knovel's enhanced platform delivers increased productivity and a faster path to relevant answers through new search and analytics capabilities, helping users sift through vast amounts of information. The new user interface delivers an intuitive and personalised user experience, especially for first time Knovel users. It supports users by providing data-rich answers and insights in engineering best-practices and foundational knowledge from multiple sources and content types Enabling faster results by applying machine learning to generate "auto-suggest," "featured results" and 'refine by suggestions'; personalizing experience – engineers can save notes and search history, review their recent activity and enjoy seamless reading between computer and mobile device through the MyKnovel ToGo mobile app; helping engineers find and apply engineering equations and validated data points to solve operational challenges; and introducing new analytics capabilities to allow engineers to quickly find material properties insights.

As the amount of engineering data in existence continues to rise, it is important for engineers and researchers to have access to digital tools that can filter out irrelevant information, allowing for faster insights. The upgrades to the Knovel platform meet this demand through improved personalization, tailoring the experience to each user's needs, and providing them with greater visibility of engineering data. The new version also offers better discoverability of related information, helping users to build up key foundational knowledge and concepts faster than before.

OTA International will seek to serve as a forum for global orthopaedic trauma with peer-reviewed, high-quality basic research and clinical studies related to the field of orthopaedic trauma surgery. The journal will provide both scientific innovation and educational material, disseminate clinical trial information and registry data, and highlight key scientific advances presented at meetings held by global orthopaedic associations and trauma societies, as well as national and international orthopaedic trauma collaboratives. Readers can also expect articles and abstracts arising out of the OTA's educational activities and conjoint meetings held with other organizations.

Contributions are welcome from surgeons and trauma clinicians, educators and researchers in the following areas: in all sub-specialty areas of orthopaedic trauma, basic science and biomechanics, quality and safety systems, population health, and health policy and economics relevant to orthopaedic trauma. Submissions may include original papers, reviews, meta analyses, technique reports, fracture registry and big data studies, case reports, reports on the initiatives and outputs of national and international orthopaedic trauma collaboratives and societies, studies on the development and validation of orthopaedic trauma outcome tools, policy statements, guidelines, commentaries, reports of sessions at meetings, refereed abstracts from OTA meetings and, subject to individual agreement, those meetings that are held by the OTA conjointly with other organisations.

US ProQuest and bibliotheca partner to enhance selfCheck experience - 20 Oct 2017

ProQuest and bibliotheca are teaming to integrate the power of the Syndetics Unbound™ service into the library selfCheck experience.

The Syndetics Unbound™ enrichment service integrates seamlessly with a library's existing catalogue to provide interactive exploration, increasing circulation of the library collection. Backed by comprehensive data from ProQuest and LibraryThing, Syndetics Unbound™ provides the highest quality enrichments and best coverage for both public and academic libraries.

Through ProQuest plus bibliotheca, libraries around the world will provide personalised, curated book recommendations and ratings to patrons directly at the point of borrowing or returning items. This will allow patrons to easily place recommended titles on hold, paving the way for future library circulation.

Libraries that already subscribe to recommendations through Syndetics Unbound or LibraryThing for Libraries will receive the added benefit of sharing recommendations at bibliotheca selfCheck kiosks. This capability offers library customers the ability to boost the circulation of their collections and expose great backlist items that are similar to best-selling titles.

When items are read at the selfCheck kiosk, the screen will display cover images, titles, and ratings for other relevant recommended books. Patrons will have the option to print the information on their receipt for later or place items on hold directly from the selfCheck software.

The Syndetics Unbound™ service utilises LibraryThing® recommendations that originate from book lovers around the world. In addition to libraries in North America, those located in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand can also benefit from local English language book recommendations for local publications.

US OCLC Research and euroCRIS announce strategic partnership - 20 Oct 2017

OCLC Research and euroCRIS, the international organisation for research information, has announced a strategic partnership to recognise and understand international research information management practices through collaborative research. The two organisations signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) earlier this year.

Research information management (RIM) is the aggregation, curation, and utilisation of information about research and is emerging as an area of increasing interest and relevance in many university libraries. RIMs, also broadly known as Current Research Information Systems (CRISs), are gaining interest and attention worldwide for their contribution in dealing with new policies on open science, research funding, and national assessment.

RIM intersects with many aspects of traditional library services in discovery, acquisition, dissemination, and analysis of scholarly activities, and does so through the nexus with institutional data systems, researcher workflows, and institutional partners. RIM adoption offers libraries new opportunities to support institutional and researcher goals.

OCLC Research staff, euroCRIS board members, and librarians from OCLC Research Library Partnership institutions have been working together since early 2017 to develop a Survey on Research Information Management Practices, which will offer research institutions worldwide the opportunity to share information about their practices. OCLC Research and euroCRIS will synthesise these survey findings into a research report expected in 2018. This survey will launch later in October. More about this project is on the OCLC Research website.

When evaluating reading list systems, BIBSYS's objective was to select a modern solution that has a clear focus on both current and future requirements of students, teaching staff and librarians. The agency sought a reading list system that would produce clean, simple, and uniformly structured reading lists that can be easily accessed and managed and would support the BIBSYS consortial environment. Such a system would help BIBSYS fulfill its vision of contributing to an effective teaching and learning environment in institutions across the country.
