Netherland Quertle and Elsevier collaborate to integrate ScienceDirect full-text searching within new artificial intelligence discovery tool - 06 Feb 2017

Quertle, developer of the first artificial intelligence (AI) biomedical big data discovery platform (BioAI™) for biomedical literature, and STM publisher Elsevier have announced that searching of the full-text biomedical and life science content on ScienceDirect, Elsevier's leading information source with over 14 million publications, will be integrated into Quertle's artificial intelligence discovery product Qinsight™.

Because traditional search methods often produce long lists of irrelevant results, users can be overwhelmed and miss pertinent documents. Semantics, natural language processing and other AI-based methods have failed to appreciably address these issues. In contrast, Qinsight uses biomedically-optimised neural networks and other AI methods to simulate how an expert's brain discovers the most relevant information, discerns critical facts and discovers key concepts. Qinsight also provides advanced visual analytics to summarize results, predict trends, and discover hidden connections within the literature. The ScienceDirect content will provide a significant expansion to the more than 40 million authoritative documents (including more than 10 million full-text documents) already searched in Qinsight.

The full-text content from ScienceDirect is projected to be searchable in Qinsight in the first quarter of 2017 as an add-on module to every Qinsight subscription. Viewing non-open access full-text documents will be possible for users affiliated with institutions subscribing to ScienceDirect.

UK Jisc and OCLC partner to build new UK-wide service that will transform library collaboration - 06 Feb 2017

Jisc and OCLC have announced a partnership to build a new shared service that will aggregate academic bibliographic data at scale, improving library collection management and resource discovery for students and researchers. Jisc has announced that OCLC, the global library cooperative, has been awarded the contract to develop a new national bibliographic knowledgebase (NBK).

The NBK, originally proposed in the national monograph strategy, will support the learning and research needs of the UK higher education community. The vision is to extend the capabilities of the current Copac service, by investing in technology that can ingest diverse library data at higher speed and greater volume. The new service will enable a shift in the way that libraries manage their print and digital collections and in the ways that people access those resources.

The library community is grappling with two core challenges as budgets come under threat - firstly, the need to make important decisions about the ongoing management of their print and digital book collections; and secondly, to ensure that researchers and learners have sustainable and convenient access to digital books.

The NBK is regarded as a key element in the delivery against these issues, providing a source of information that libraries can confidently rely upon when making decisions about the future of the resources that they manage and make accessible.

Supported by WorldCat, the world's largest aggregation of library data, the project is due to start in January 2017, with launch of a beta service projected in January 2018.

German Knowledge Unlatched and JSTOR partner to study usage of Open Access books - 06 Feb 2017

Knowledge Unlatched (KU), the Open Access initiative supporting monographs in the humanities and social sciences, and JSTOR, the digital library of academic journals, books, and primary sources, are partnering to study usage patterns in Open Access by cross-promoting KU titles.

While KU will continue to host its titles on the OAPEN platform, it will expand the hosting of 30 Open Access titles to JSTOR. This set includes titles in History, Literature, Political Science, Anthropology, and Media & Communications—all published by leading scholarly presses and "unlatched" with the support of libraries around the world.

Continued study of usage will be under the auspices of KU Research led by Professor Lucy Montgomery of Curtin University, Australia. The full list of Open Access ebooks available through JSTOR is available at http://about.jstor.org/open-access.

France International Journal of Metrology and Quality Engineering now fully Open Access - 06 Feb 2017

STM publisher EDP Sciences has announced that International Journal of Metrology and Quality Engineering (IJMQE) is now a fully gold Open Access journal, meaning that all published articles will be available for anyone to read at any time from the publication date.

IJMQE was previously a subscription journal, but the move to Open Access demonstrates EDP Sciences’ support of Open Science and allows unrestricted access to published science.

Rather than institutions and individuals paying subscription fees, authors pay an article processing charge for an accepted article. To celebrate its launch in Open Access, the IJMQE article processing charge will be 300€ in 2017 (increasing to 1,110€ following the launch period).

The International Journal of Metrology and Quality Engineering (IJMQE) is devoted to articles dealing with applied metrology and quality tools for process improvement in industry and in research (in environment, health, food, energy, aerospace and automotive). The journal's main focus is related to measurement, sensors and instrumentation, products experimental reliability and safety, conformity assessment, process control and quality management.

Australia State Library Victoria selects Ex Libris Rosetta for digital asset management, collection, and preservation - 06 Feb 2017

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that State Library Victoria has chosen the Ex Libris Rosetta digital preservation system to manage its digital resources and sustain them in perpetuity. Rosetta will be replacing the library's DigiTool® digital asset management system.

State Library Victoria sought a system that would enable the library to collect, manage, and preserve digital assets. The ideal solution would integrate with the Library's other core systems and provide a smooth migration pathway. User experience was a key requirement: the system should allow the Library to provide intuitive, powerful, and playful digital interfaces for current and future users, enabling the development of new players according to the Library's needs.

Opened in 1856 as the Melbourne Public Library, State Library Victoria is Australia's oldest and busiest public library. Over the past 160 years, the Library has collected more than 4.9 million items, including books, manuscripts, serials, photographs, artworks, maps, and ephemera. More than 70,000 items are added to the Library's rich collection annually, and the Library leads the sector with its ambitious digitisation program. Every year, the Library welcomes over 1.9 million visitors in person and more than 4 million visits online.
