Israel Ex Libris and the Copyright Licensing Agency collaborate to develop CLA’s Digital Content Store - 23 Feb 2016

Ex Libris, a ProQuest company, and the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA), the company that simplifies copyright for content users in the UK, have announced a collaboration in the development of CLA's Digital Content Store (DCS).

The DCS is an innovative rights, technology and content platform for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) being developed by CLA together with HEIs, publishers and technology partners. The DCS has at its core a searchable repository of PDF extracts created by HEIs and a workflow management tool. When extracts are digitised by HEIs under the CLA Licence, they will be uploaded directly to the DCS. Once an extract is uploaded and assigned to a course, students will be able to access the extract via a secure link to the content held in the DCS.

Ex Libris and CLA have collaborated with key HEI partners to integrate the Ex Libris Alma resource management solution into the DCS which means that those HEIs already using Alma will be able to link their library catalogue seamlessly with the DCS to run an automatic check to see if they own a given book or journal. This check is important as any digitisation done under the CLA licence requires that the HEI owns an original copy of the book or journal.

Once it is fully operational later this year the DCS will provide significant benefits to HEIs by saving them time and effort during the process of checking, digitising and reporting on content to be used in course packs including removing the requirement for annual reporting under the CLA licence.

US Florida State University Faculty Senate passes university wide open access policy - 23 Feb 2016

The Florida State University Faculty Senate, in consultation with its Library Committee and staff of the FSU Libraries, voted unanimously this week to adopt a university-wide Open Access (OA) policy.

FSU joins a growing list of major universities with similar policies designed to create a safe harbour for faculty intellectual property rights and dramatically increase the visibility of FSU journal scholarship. Many years in the making, this policy builds upon the Faculty Senate's Open Access Resolution, which was adopted by a unanimous vote in 2011 and demonstrated the faculty's support for open access in principle.

Under the new policy, faculty grant FSU permission to share the accepted versions of their scholarly articles for non-commercial purposes and agree to send the accepted, peer-reviewed versions of their articles to Library staff to be made publicly available in DigiNole: FSU's Research Repository and Digital Library. By granting non-exclusive rights to the university, faculty create a safe harbor against overly-restrictive intellectual property agreements and retain far greater control over their work than they would in standard publication contracts.

Through working with FSU Library staff to make their articles publicly available in DigiNole, faculty will also dramatically increase the visibility of their research, potentially attracting more citations than they otherwise would if their scholarship were available exclusively in pay-walled journals. Making faculty journal articles available in DigiNole also greatly simplifies the process of complying with federal funder public access mandates.

A full copy of the Open Access Policy will be published in the FSU Faculty Senate Bulletin. The Research Repository Team in the University Libraries' Office of Digital Research & Scholarship will work with FSU faculty toward the successful implementation of the new policy.

FSU Libraries' newly formed Office of Digital Research and Scholarship (DRS) provides support, infrastructure and consulting for technology-focused research projects in the areas of digital humanities, academic/digital publishing, data management, and more. DRS is focused on building collaborative research partnerships across campus, and providing platforms for new forms of scholarship.

US Association of American Publishers announces new Center for Innovation & Digital Learning - 23 Feb 2016

The Association of American Publishers (AAP) has announced the creation of a Center for Innovation & Digital Learning, an initiative designed to promote new ideas in the digital learning space and to support the development of next-generation educational technologies.

The center has several events scheduled, including its inaugural event- a panel on the challenges of bringing new products to market at SXSWedu in Austin this March. Other activities include a day-long Ed Tech Forum just ahead of the Content in Context (CIC) Conference in May and a series of webinars on topics related to educational technology and digital learning.

The new Center will be housed in the AAP's 501c3, the non-profit research arm of AAP, and will be headquartered in Washington D.C. Members from AAP's PreK-12 and Higher Education sectors will develop and implement digital initiatives within the Center, which will offer professional development and educational services and coordinate joint activities with education and technology associations and organisations; house the new PreK-12 Technology in Education Group and its activities, serve as a conduit between innovators and more established companies to foster new ideas and evolution within the industry, and connect AAP’s diversity initiatives to our members’ work in digital learning; serve as an informational resource for AAP members and others working in the education space, develop webinars, white papers, and email updates on digital and ed tech issues, and track issues related to accessibility, metadata, and other technical specifications; and develop campaigns to promote the shift from print to digital in learning materials.

US The LOCKSS Program, Stanford University Libraries and The CLOCKSS Archive support ‘Long-tail’ publishers - 23 Feb 2016

Communities using the LOCKSS Software have collaboratively passed an important milestone and are now preserving over 1000 'long tail' journal publishers, smaller publishers who have ten or fewer journals. Content from these publishers are most at-risk for loss, making preservation vital to guarantee future access to the material for research and teaching.

As libraries migrate from print to online-only publications, assurances from publishers that a library's investments are protected and preserved for generations to come is essential.

According to Victoria Reich, LOCKSS Program executive director, there are tens of thousands of long tail publishers worldwide, which makes preserving the first 1,000 publishers an important first step to a larger endeavour to protect vulnerable digital content.

The CLOCKSS Archive is a critical and unique player in the quest to preserve Web-based scholarly publications. CLOCKSS assigns abandoned and orphaned (triggered) content a Creative Commons license to ensure it remains available forever.

UK Integration of Kudos with Europe PMC to enhance discovery of research publications - 23 Feb 2016

Kudos, a service for maximizing the reach and impact of research publications, has announced that it has completed an integration with Europe PMC.

Kudos provides tools to researchers to explain their work through writing plain language descriptions for their research publications. They can then legitimately share links to their articles, books and book chapters by email, in blogs and across multiple social media and academic networking sites – tracking the resulting impact against a range of metrics.

The integration with Europe PMC means that authors' plain language descriptions of their work on Kudos are now indexed and linked to from article abstracts held in the Europe PMC repository. Over 6,000 articles on Europe PMC have now been enhanced with this additional metadata from Kudos – assisting discoverability of technical content by a broad audience.

Kudos is currently in discussions with a range of partners for additional dissemination of this author-generated content, which links back to articles hosted on publishers' websites.
