US ProQuest completes digitisation of rare books at Wellcome Library - 10 Jun 2016

ProQuest's renowned Early European Books (EEB) program now includes nearly 10,000 digitized titles and more than 4 million pages from the Wellcome Library, the pre-eminent collection in Europe devoted to the history of medicine and related topics.

In collaboration during the past five years with its scanning vendor, Numen, and the Wellcome Library, ProQuest has now completed the digitization and indexing of books from the Wellcome Library printed before 1701, including books from its unique incunabula collection (before 1501). This project is part of ProQuest's European-wide program, EEB, making available early printed books from five major European libraries to date.

Many volumes from the Wellcome Library are extremely rare, sometimes with only one other copy known to exist. These materials also include one of the most important collections of medical incunabula in the world, with copies of more than 350 books printed before 1501 included in the online collection, featuring fine woodcut illustrations showing human anatomy, plants and animals, and more unusual subjects, such as conjoined twins.

Digitisation dramatically expands discovery and access to these materials, enabling researchers around the world to explore the books' rich content without the need to physically visit the location of the collections.

ProQuest's EEB program encompasses unique European printed material from the early modern period, 1450-1700, a period of profound societal and religious change and considered by many historians as the foundation of modern intellectual western thought. To date, materials have been sourced from key collections at major repositories, including the Danish Royal Library (KBDK), the National Central Library in Florence (BNCF), the National Library of the Netherlands (KBNL), the National Library of France (BnF), and the Wellcome Library in London.

ProQuest's program now exceeds more than 45,000 titles with 14.5 million pages of rich content, and continues to expand. Over time, ProQuest will add additional content and enhanced meta data to its EEB program.

ProQuest is committed to adding value to these materials, to make them more discoverable and accessible by researchers. Through its partnership with the USTC team of scholars at St. Andrew's University, ProQuest is adding an additional discovery layer of 38 subject classifications, from Agriculture to Witchcraft, across all the diverse content in EEB, which is expected to dramatically improve the search experience. ProQuest is adding interactive "scatter map" software as a way to visualize the content. In addition to searching by the standardized subject classifications, researchers will be able to search by source library, place of printing, language, year/date range, region of printing.

The Wellcome Library's collection of Rare Books is the pre-eminent collection in Europe devoted to the history of medicine and related topics. Just under ten thousand titles have been contributed to Early European Books, including over three hundred works dating from the later 15th century - the dawn of printing in Europe. These comprised all works held by the Library that fell within the scope of Early European Books, apart from volumes deemed too fragile to scan.

The collection is rich in early anatomical texts, including not only the works of Andreas Vesalius but also pre-Vesalian texts such as the Fasciculus medicinae attributed to Johannes de Ketham and the works of Berengario da Carpi. The scientific advances of the seventeenth century are well represented, by such as William Harvey's Exercitatio anatomica de motu cordis et sanguinis in animalibus (Frankfurt, 1628), the first edition of his account of his discovery of blood circulation. Other subjects extensively represented include alchemy and astrology, cookery (for example La Varenne's Le cuisinier françois, edition of 1669) and diet, demonology and magic, and ethnography and travel, such as editions from the 1550s of Italian geographer Giovanni Battista Ramusio's Navigatione et viaggi, a compendium of explorers' first-hand accounts of their navigations and travels, the first of its kind.

US Cell Press announces July launch of a new journal, Chem - 10 Jun 2016

Biomedical journals publisher Cell Press, an imprint of STM publisher Elsevier, has announced the July launch of a new journal, Chem. With this launch, Cell Press officially begins the expansion of its portfolio to meet the needs of the wider research community.

Chem (@Chem_CP) aims to be a true sister journal to Cell by positioning itself as the 'journal for exciting chemistry.' Each issue will include original research articles that move the field forward, as well as front matter and reviews that explore how chemistry and its sub-disciplines can be a force for good. Nearly 100 advisory board members and a small committee of "next-generation advisors" will work with Chem's editors to continually develop the journal's scope and ambitions.

As a Cell Press publication, Chem will provide the same personal engagement with editors, dynamic presentation options, and hospitality that authors have come to expect. And like its flagship sister in biology, Chem will publish cutting-edge, thought-provoking advances across the breadth of the discipline, from physical chemistry to atmospheric and organic chemistry.

Four papers are now available for preview ahead of the first issue at http://www.cell.com/chem/home.

US McGraw-Hill Education gains exclusive rights to sell ZogoTech’s proven services - 10 Jun 2016

McGraw-Hill Education, a learning science company, and ZogoTech, a provider of predictive data analytics services to higher education institutions, have entered into an agreement providing McGraw-Hill Education exclusive rights to sell the data firm's proven services.

The agreement signals McGraw-Hill Education's continued investment in learning science and data analytics as keys to improving student outcomes, and its desire to help bring ZogoTech's outstanding data science to scale nationwide.

ZogoTech is a leading provider of student success analytics solutions for community colleges. ZogoTech's software transforms disparate data into actionable insights for users throughout an institution. Administrators can identify policy changes that will affect student success by surfacing hidden trends and identifying which interventions are most effective. Researchers can drill down to understand underlying causes, quickly pivoting millions of rows of data. Advisors and faculty can utilise front-end applications that guide them to which students are at-risk and what action to take.

ZogoTech has successfully helped colleges improve retention rates. Through its work with Odessa College, for example, new data-based insights were obtained that led to an original scientifically based program for improving in-class retention rates. Those improvements have led to an in-class retention rate that increased from an average of 83 percent in 2010 to more than 94 percent in 2014.1
