UK Web of Science data show that G20 nations are drivers of the global research system - 25 Jun 2019

The Institute for Scientific Information at the Web of Science Group launched a new report which examines the research performance of the G20 with a visual comparative snapshot for each G20 nation, ahead of the Osaka summit in Japan from June 28-29. The Web of Science Group is part of Clarivate Analytics plc, a global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to accelerate the pace of innovation.

The world’s most prosperous economies are also among the most innovative and innovation is driven first and foremost by research. Research boosts economic growth and drives progress as the benefits of research are realised through economic, social and cultural outcomes.

The report, The Annual G20 Scorecard – Research Performance 2019 includes both a written summary and a host of graphs and exhibits that highlight the research performance of Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, United Kingdom and the United States. It shows that collectively the 19 countries of the G20 represent 65% of the world’s population; produce >80% of global GDP; spend 92% of global R&D; employ 87% of the world’s researchers; and publish 70% of the global research papers indexed in the Web of Science with more than five million articles and reviews indexed for the last three years.

The profiles within the report are selective, highlighting chosen topics of current policy interest that identify good signals of the health of the research base. Key factors that contribute to impactful research are laid out for each nation in the report and cover international engagement; relative research funding within the wider economy; gender balance in the research workforce; open access to research; and a summary of publication output and citation impact along with a deconstruction of these indicators by main research areas in sciences and humanities.

UK Jisc joins the National Archives and Research Libraries UK to deliver libraries and collections conferences - 25 Jun 2019

The National Archives and Research Libraries UK have announced that Jisc will be joining them as a partner in the organisation and delivery of the Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities (DCDC) conference series.

In the spirit of collaboration which defines DCDC, all partners look forward to ensuring that the conference continues to break new ground, challenge assumptions, and share best practice across the library, archive, heritage and academic communities.

This conference series is one of the largest cross-sector heritage conferences in the UK. It brings together archivists, librarians, heritage professionals, and academics to explore ways of enhancing cross-sector collaboration between professional communities during a time of great change.

Attracting more than 400 delegates each year, individual DCDC conferences bring together speakers and delegates from across the UK, Europe, and internationally, to explore a range of issues, from the impact of collections to digital transformation.

The 2019 DCDC Conference will be held on November 12-14 in Birmingham, on the theme of ‘navigating the digital shift: practices and possibilities.’

The multi-day event is a mix of invited speakers, workshops, and contributed papers and posters that stimulate discussion and provide feasible ideas for effective, practical, and sustainable library assessment. Previous conferences have been held in Charlottesville, Virginia (2006, 2012); Seattle, Washington (2008, 2014); Baltimore, Maryland (2010); Arlington, Virginia (2016); and Houston, Texas (2018).

US University of Richmond Libraries opts for Ex Libris’ Alma and Primo solutions - 25 Jun 2019

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that the University of Richmond has selected the Ex Libris Alma® library services platform and Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery solution. This combination will enable the university to scale its electronic resource management to meet the needs of its undergraduate and research-focused patrons.

The University of Richmond is a liberal arts college serving mostly undergraduates, with a curriculum that emphasizes rigorous undergraduate research and collaboration with teaching faculty. The university’s library system consists of the Boatwright Memorial Library (the campus’s main library), Parsons Music Library, and William Taylor Muse Law Library. In addition to supporting the faculty’s scholarly activities, the libraries aim to provide collections and services at the level of a research institution, though with the budget and staff of a liberal arts college.

To meet these high expectations, the university plans to take advantage of the Alma platform’s efficiency optimisations to streamline workflows and improve collaboration. By means of the unified capabilities of the Alma and Primo integration, the university will consolidate its various digital collections to make them all discoverable through a single interface.

Through the Primo customisation options, the libraries will be able to finely tune and optimize the front-end user experience for all categories of users, tailored to their discipline or status (for example, incoming freshmen or senior faculty members). And while the three libraries will all use the Primo search and discovery features, the university will configure different views and search settings for each of the campus libraries.

The University of Richmond libraries will also rely on the integrated Alma workflows, external integrations, and Ex Libris Community Zone to eliminate duplication of effort. In this way, time and resources can be devoted to solving local problems, maintaining the accuracy of unique, locally generated data, and working on exciting new initiatives like linked data enhancements and enhanced integration of the digital collections.

The National Information Standards Organization (NISO) has announced the appointment of Jason Griffey as the Director of Strategic Initiatives on the NISO staff. Griffey brings to NISO over 15 years of experience in libraries and community leadership, as well as a broad understanding of emerging technologies. This new position was created to support the forthcoming merger between NISO and the National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS) that was announced earlier this spring. Griffey will be responsible for organising an annual conference and thought leadership meetings, and for building initiatives based on those meetings.

For the last 5 years, Griffey has run Evenly Distributed, a consulting firm that works with libraries–both nationally and internationally–on education and strategic planning related to cutting-edge technologies. He is widely recognised as an expert in the areas of artificial intelligence, blockchain, privacy, and other library-related technology issues.

Griffey has written and presented extensively on technology and libraries, including multiple books and a series of full-periodical issues on technology topics, most recently AI & Machine Learning in Libraries and Library Spaces and Smart Buildings: Technology, Metrics, and Iterative Design both published in 2018. Griffey spent three years as a Fellow and Affiliate at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University before spending one year working with the metaLAB at Harvard. He has served both as Director-at-Large and as Parliamentarian on the Board of the Library Information Technology Association, a division of the American Library Association.
