OCLC and Bibliotekscentrum partner to provide WorldShare Management Services to Swedish libraries
- 21 Aug 2018

Non-profit global library cooperative OCLC has announced a new partnership with Bibliotekscentrum Sverige AB, a provider of library software in Sweden, to deliver its flagship services, WorldShare Management Services (WMS) and WorldShare e-Services, to Swedish academic libraries.

Bibliotekscentrum will strengthen and complement the portfolio of solutions that it already delivers to the Swedish market with the addition of these OCLC services.

This is an important initiative for both organisations. WorldShare Management Services was the first cloud-based library management system when launched in 2011 and in a short period of time, it has been selected by more than 600 libraries worldwide.

ACCUCOMS has assisted in a new agreement being signed between the Royal Society and Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL). All MPDL institutions will now benefit from a new agreement on Article Processing Charges (APCs) for the Royal Society's open access journals Open Biology and Royal Society Open Science.

The Royal Society has published scientific journals since 1665, inclusive of all scientific disciplines and drawing from sources across the globe. The fellowship, made up of many of the world's most distinguished scientists, is committed to recognising, promoting and supporting excellence in science for the benefit of humanity.

The Max Planck Digital Library (MPDL) in Munich is a central unit of the Max Planck Society that supports scientists from all Max Planck Institutes with a broad portfolio of services in the fields of information provision, publication support and research data management. The MPDL arranges for access to a wide range of scientific journals, eBooks, specialist databases and extensive open access publication services. Together with the libraries at the Max Planck Institutes, it takes care of an excellent supply of scientific information and opportunities for publication.

Springer Nature and IBM Watson Health collaborate to create deeper insights from cutting edge scientific and medical research
- 21 Aug 2018

Springer Nature has announced a collaboration with Watson Health to expand and enhance the integration of valuable genomics research content from Springer Nature to Watson's ecosystem. The collaboration will significantly extend Watson's AI and machine learning technology access to content from leading Springer Nature journals, giving researchers and health professionals using Watson even more access to genomics research in varied medical and health science settings.

IBM Watson Health offerings have always integrated research literature from Springer Nature based on its subscription access. As part of this data collaboration, Watson Health will have broader access to peer-reviewed genomics-related journal content from Springer Nature journals, including Nature - the leading international weekly journal of science founded in 1869 - Nature Genetics and Nature Medicine.

The improved access will allow Watson to enhance the extraction of genomics data used to generate reports that provide insights to oncologists in defining treatment pathways. This collaboration framework will also allow Watson Health to use Springer Nature content in more flexible ways for different circumstances.

MXRi and Zygote partner to transform biomedical learning with augmented and virtual reality
- 20 Aug 2018

MXR International Pte Ltd (MXRi), a specialist provider of AR/VR platform for education, publishing and training, and Zygote Co., Ltd., have announced a partnership to integrate Zygote's medically accurate 3D anatomical models into MXRi's AR platform to create immersive AR/VR learning content with publishers, educators and training institutes.

Using MXRi's SnapLearn platform, content publishers can easily turn books and training manuals into an AR/VR experience. The integration of Zygote's high quality 3D models with SnapLearn will allow medical, health and biology publishers to present the complete human body models in a visually stunning, factually accurate and now, immersive AR/VR format.

Augmented and Virtual Reality is a fast growing content medium and when applied in education and training, allows learners and trainees to better visualise concepts, enhance understanding and improve retention. However, the cost of incorporating AR/VR into existing content publishing process is costly, lengthy and technical.

With MXRis SnapLearn and Zygote's 3D models, the time and cost of producing AR/VR experience for biomedical education and training will be a tiny fraction of bespoke development while being underpinned by decades of R&D in AR/VR application and 3D production.

The integrated Zygote 3D model library will be available in MXRi's SnapLearn from October with an official launch at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
