UK British Library partners with ProQuest to give patrons access to reader reviews, author bios, other key search data - 22 Feb 2019

The British Library is improving the performance of its online catalogue with Syndetics Unbound™, a ProQuest enrichment service that helps libraries create an interactive search experience for their users.

With more than 150 million items in its catalogue - including books, magazines, newspapers, patents, electronic files and more - the British Library is one of the world's largest libraries, housing copies of all publications produced in the U.K. and Ireland.

Now, when patrons search the British Library's main catalogue enhanced with Syndetics Unbound data, they will see rich, dynamic information that helps them not only choose the right book, but also find related titles and materials in the library through recommendations, reviews, tags and more.

All Syndetics Unbound data is derived from Bowker, the world's leading authority for bibliographic and publisher information, and LibraryThing, which provides high-quality, professionally vetted social and recommendations data. In total, 16 interactive elements are available from Syndetics Unbound, any of which can be turned on or off by library administrators.

German UC San Diego signs OA2020 Expression of Interest - 22 Feb 2019

The University of California San Diego has signed an Expression of Interest (EoI) to adopt the principles of Open Access 2020 (OA2020), an international effort to make all scholarly publications freely and immediately available to everyone by replacing the current costly subscription-based approach with transparent, sustainable funding models.

UC San Diego joins educational institutions across the world that have signed the OA2020 EoI, including the University of California (UC) campuses at Berkeley, Davis, Los Angeles, Merced, Riverside and San Francisco. By signing the EoI, these universities have indicated a commitment to advancing open access (OA) through many possible mechanisms.

When an institution commits to signing the OA2020 EoI, it agrees to make a good faith effort to devise and implement practical strategies and actions for attaining reduced barriers in accessing and reusing information. This particular movement - initiated and led by the Max Planck Digital Library in Munich - provides a flexible framework for each institution to define for themselves how they will repurpose their journal subscription funds to support OA publishing. UC San Diego's goal is to ensure that the resulting actions in support of open access are feasible, sustainable and in the best interests of its faculty. To achieve this, the university will undertake outreach efforts that keep the lines of communication open between the Library, campus leadership, faculty, researchers and scholars.

The UC system has long been a leader in the open access movement. In 2013 the System wide Academic Senate acknowledged its commitment to open access by adopting an open access policy covering faculty senate members at all 10 campuses. Recognizing the benefits this brought faculty, two years later the University of California formalized a new policy to expand open access rights and responsibilities from just senate faculty, who were covered by previous policies, to all UC employees.

US Credo Reference adds Research Quick Tips to Credo Online Reference Service - 22 Feb 2019

Credo Reference has announced the addition of Research Quick Tips to Credo Online Reference Service, its popular exploratory research platform as a standard feature moving forward. The concise videos, embedded throughout the platform, offer research guidance for students while they are working in the platform. The new feature marks the latest in a series of innovations by the company to support library instruction around information literacy and critical thinking skill development.

Adapted from Credo's Learning Tools instructional materials, Research Quick Tips help students select their topics, find relevant sources, avoid bias in their searches, and more. Credo’s authoritative videos quickly and effectively present students with strategies and techniques needed to conduct proper research. Best of all, students remain in the platform where they can immediately use what they have just learned from the videos to conduct research within Credo's wealth of scholarly content alongside other award-winning features such as the Mind Map brainstorming tool, topic pages, Key Concepts, and more.

Choice honoured Credo Online Reference Service earlier this year with an Outstanding Academic Title award, largely due to the company's dedication to empowering students to explore and navigate information. In 2018 Credo launched a more intuitive user interface, expanded its Real-time Reference current events content, and took steps to make collaboration between the library and the classroom easier than ever.

From the First Year Experience to discipline-specific embedded librarianship, Credo is an integral component in library instruction strategies of all types. Whether demonstrating the research process in the classroom, partnering with teaching faculty, or providing help at the point-of-need, Credo Online Reference Service offers tools and features that make it easier for students to grasp information literacy concepts and develop stronger academic skills.
