US Alexander Street’s Counseling and Therapy in Video: Volume V to feature over 400 streaming videos enhancing training in mental health diagnoses - 11 Apr 2017

Alexander Street, a ProQuest Company, has announced the launch of its Counseling and Therapy in Video: Volume V, The Symptom Media Collection.

Recognizing and diagnosing mental disorders are critical skills for future behavioural health workers to have, and academic institutions know that providing credible, current, and engaging resources to aid in their training is fundamental to student success.

Alexander Street's Counseling and Therapy in Video four-volume series is known for providing a firsthand look at the realities of working with clients and the challenges associated with putting theoretical concepts into practice. It offers comprehensive, current, curated content in a learning medium that today's students prefer - video.

Alexander Street continues to support this critical training with the April launch of Volume V, The Symptom Media Collection. This volume will offer over 400 Symptom Media training videos, helping students to better recognise and provide accurate diagnoses of mental health disorders by exploring the most critical topics aligned to the DSM-5®/ICD-10.

Ranging from 30 seconds to 15 minutes, Volume V's collection of DSM-5® and ICD-10 videos will not only provide the best training content but are designed to easily integrate into courses and lectures. Volume V also provides assessment options for faculty. Many of the titles include two versions - one that introduces symptoms to students, and another that allows students to make their own diagnoses.

Faculty and librarians can expect 150 additional videos to be incorporated into Volume V through 2021.

German More than 200 titles now available from KU Select 2016 - 11 Apr 2017

Knowledge Unlatched (KU), the Open Access initiative supporting monographs in the humanities and social sciences, has unlatched over 200 titles from the recently-funded KU Select 2016 collection of 343 Humanities and Social Sciences e-books. This brings the total number of unlatched books from all KU collections to over 300.

These titles can be downloaded as Open Access PDFs and in some cases EPUB files by anyone, anywhere from KU's official partner platforms: OAPEN and HathiTrust. Each title carries a Creative Commons licence agreed between the publisher and author, allowing for their book to become Open Access without embargo.

The remaining titles will be unlatched in weekly batches throughout the next couple of months. Libraries can subscribe to receive automatic notifications for every new title via the KU Library Portal (under Settings/Details). Once unlatched, the basic MARC catalogue records are updated and available directly on the OAPEN website. Enriched records follow shortly thereafter, and will also be available on HathiTrust's site soon.

US ASTM International and AATCC partner through technical standards offering - 11 Apr 2017

ASTM International and the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) have announced that they will bring together textiles standards and other offerings in one online platform.

This will help people and companies gain access to high-quality tools and resources from both organisations to improve durability of textiles, ensure quality colours, create in-demand products, and more.

Housed in the online platform ASTM Compass, the new package includes over 125 AATCC test methods, procedures, and monographs in both PDF and HTML formats. It can be expanded to include ASTM International textile offerings including Section 7 of its Book of Standards as well as proficiency testing and training programs. Alternatively, the AATCC package can be added to an existing Compass subscription of textile standards and other documents.

Subscribers will also have access in PDF and HTML to two AATCC compilations of provisional technical documents - Concept 2 Consumer Technical Supplement A Compilation of Procedures and Guidelines; and Moisture Management Technical Supplement Applicable to Apparel, Linens and Soft Goods.

Through Compass – an industry-leading, interactive, document platform – AATCC standards now feature ability to add notes and attach pertinent files within each standard; interaction down to the section level; bookmarking for easy retrieval; ability to form project teams related to the standards; an optional tool (SpecBuilder) to manage internal company specifications; optional training modules and videos; and optional access to thousands of peer-reviewed papers and books in the ASTM International Digital Library.

US Three Southern Nevada Libraries to implement Ex Libris’ Alma and Primo solutions - 11 Apr 2017

Ex Libris®, a ProQuest company, has announced that the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), along with the College of Southern Nevada and Nevada State College, has chosen the Ex Libris Alma® library management service and the Ex Libris Primo® discovery and delivery platform.

The UNLV University Libraries, UNLV Law Library, the College of Southern Nevada, and Nevada State College are the core academic libraries of Southern Nevada. In addition, the Desert Research Institute’s library in Las Vegas will also join in migrating to the selected systems. All institutions are members of the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE). Ex Libris provides a fully operational cloud-based platform that increases efficiency; streamlines workflows; consolidates the management of physical, electronic, and digital collections; provides robust discovery of all types of library resources, including locally created digital assets; and offers top-quality reporting and analytics features. The Alma platform's resource management and capability to integrate with existing infrastructures and third-party systems, such as UNLV's automated storage and retrieval system (LASR), were major factors in UNLV's decision. More than 500 customers, many of whose collections and budgets are similar to UNLV in size, are using Alma today.

The Alma platform's unified approach to managing electronic resources eliminates the duplication of activities and reduces the need to enter information into multiple systems. Built-in workflow rules and task lists enable the library staff to focus more on exceptions that require human intervention and thus spend less time on routine tasks, which can be automated. Additionally, the integration of the Alma knowledge base and external sources of data (for example, vendor databases) expedites the process of making newly acquired resources discoverable by patrons.

US OCLC Research and Ithaka S+R join forces on new research project – University Futures; Library Futures - 11 Apr 2017

OCLC Research and Ithaka S+R have announced a new project - University Futures; Library Futures. Both organisations are joining forces to carry out a collaborative project on the future of academic libraries, in the context of changes in the higher education landscape.

Throughout the period of enormous growth in the decades since World War II, libraries of all types have followed essentially the same pattern: they measured their effectiveness by the size of the collection. But libraries are not ends in themselves. They serve the communities and organisations of which they are a part—they serve the interests of their parent universities and colleges. Until recently, the collections model of libraries has meant that all academic libraries have measured their success in terms of how big their collections are—every library trying to be as much 'like Harvard' as possible. Some efforts to gather statistics have reinforced the notion that the biggest collection was the best, and smaller libraries imitated the process to determine which medium-sized or small library is best.

In this project, the research question is: what happens when libraries differentiate themselves in terms of services, not collection size; are there multiple models of success?

In this context, the current discussion of the future of libraries has two limitations. First, it often proceeds without reference to the universities of which they are a part. OCLC Research and Ithaka S+R argue that the most important long term influence on the library is the requirement placed on it by changing patterns of research and learning. These changing patterns, in turn, are shaped by the focus of the university and the directions it is taking. Second, it often presumes some homogeneity of approach or direction, different only in degree among libraries. This presumption of homogeneity encourages a view of academic libraries in which the research library is seen as a terminal point in evolution, rather than as one type among others. These limitations mean that despite considerable exploration, a robust view of library directions is yet to be developed. Different library types will have different futures, shaped by the needs of the institutions they serve. Accordingly, the organisations distinguish between general accounts of the future of libraries and their particular interest in developing a framework for understanding library futures.
