community to interact on a variety of themes
2:23
and start their first session of
2:25
today's forum
2:27
is on the subject of expanding access
2:29
two primary source collections and databases
2:32
others echoes the theme that we introduced last year belong the same
2:36
line
2:36
uh... and we're here to provide you
2:39
considerable amount of detail and updates on what's year-olds been doing
2:43
to collect your your feedback
2:46
on on the challenges are facing and what what we'd like to see if sea url
2:51
i'd like to introduce just our presenters aboard this session
2:55
as i've mentioned james simon director of international resources
2:59
and i'd also like to introduce virginia her
3:01
who's our digital program manager at zero and mary wilkie
3:05
who's the member these on an outreach services director
3:08
the three of us will be
3:10
occupying your phones for the next ninety minutes to discuss this broad
3:14
subject
3:14
uh... ends and we will certainly
3:17
who just want to reiterate that you are welcome to submit questions
3:21
via the chaps that you see on your screen
3:24
and we will be addressing those questions as we can and certainly
3:27
towards the end we have a fifteen atleast fifteen minutes for discussion
3:30
so that question of clarification we can try to address them in line
3:35
producing it does it anytime especially as they come because it's a long such
3:40
just briefly our agenda for the next ninety minutes ennui
3:44
will be addressing issues relating to primary source content
3:48
and as we all know and as you well know
3:50
the patterns of access and uses of primary source
3:55
content continues to evolve
3:58
we recently announce our primary source awards in the morning session where we
4:04
discussed and in fact celebrated the use of primary source collections by
4:08
members of the cyril community
4:10
and that certainly highlighted how access research and teaching
4:14
who have been changing in recent years especially related primary source
4:18
collections
4:18
as heroes readers likewise
4:21
involved in his response to the changing needs of its members
4:24
the program will highlight steps we've taken over the past year and sardar
4:29
here's directions
4:31
in the course of the program will address the
4:33
scope of sierra leopards
4:35
be looking at more closely at our purchase programs and licensing
4:38
activities of late
4:40
and discuss some of the current partnerships and future directions the
4:43
center
4:44
and as we said we have some time for two and a
4:48
there'll be several
4:50
motifs will return to throughout the ninety minutes ends
4:53
focusing in on particular areas of primary source materials in particular
4:57
areas that have represented strengths of sierras collections over either
5:02
six plus tickets of our existence
5:04
does of course include news
5:06
which promises more than just print newspapers but certainly news of of any
5:10
variety
5:12
legal in government publications
5:15
legacy collections in agriculture and technology and in particular sir
5:19
cereals receipt serial publications
5:22
and other primary source collections archives and the like
5:29
said it again
5:30
i'd like to just
5:32
setup dot the landscape few will of of that
5:37
changes that we've been seeing from our perspective and from what we've heard
5:40
from our members that the changing
5:43
needs of our members
5:44
and it's these of course i think are familiar to all of you
5:48
in terms of of what you're doing your institutions as well as
5:52
among the consortium but that you deal with in the collaborative programmes you
5:56
participate in
5:57
certainly the growing
5:59
body of material that is being made available online
6:02
while certainly good news for the users represents particular challenges for the
6:06
libraries
6:07
both in terms of the legacy collections that have been digitized by
6:12
non-profit or commercial publishers
6:14
as well as the growing body of war and useful contact increasingly
6:19
the production of evidence is gone virtual ends
6:22
and that's at least mirrored exposing in virtual documentation even if it's
6:26
happening in the life world as we've seen in
6:28
recent events and in northern africa in the middle east
6:32
certainly good news and production of data has gone
6:35
web first so looking at speed
6:39
responses that we need to be addressing the coming years as gaining increasing
6:43
urgency
6:45
some of the other
6:47
challenges that we face along the way though is the ongoing commercialization
6:51
of this content whether it's
6:53
uh... public domain resources
6:55
our government publications
6:58
amore or simply materials that have been
7:00
dearly passed upon by by some of our esteemed colleagues in the commercial
7:04
sector
7:05
public-private partnerships is on one
7:09
area that we've report should rest the challenges of access to this
7:13
but that comes with
7:14
and certain
7:17
benefits and drawbacks attitude as well and we want released address some of
7:20
that in our discussion here
7:22
and what i call the course that suffocation of resources the continuing
7:27
persistence of
7:29
in not in interoperable
7:32
search in discovery of these accesses continues to bexar users i've spoken to
7:36
numerous colors of the past year
7:38
which
7:40
professed sometimes a profound ignorance of the resources that are after disposal
7:44
even within their libraries despite
7:46
all of our efforts to promote
7:48
collaboratively and individually that the resources that are at hand
7:52
suv core some of the commercial platforms are cursor moving towards
7:56
unified platforms an integrated searching
7:58
but there certainly are not cross searchable
8:01
across various vendors platforms as well so this continues to provide challenges
8:04
to our institutions
8:07
a few cases samples i just want to highlight here in
8:10
as evidence of these challenges
8:12
certainly in the area of news we've seen
8:15
uh... burgeoning availability of content
8:18
both from commercial news
8:20
and from
8:21
bird among commercial sector either through with national library search
8:25
your library partnerships
8:27
one of the the
8:29
product out there thus on the screen here's deal
8:31
gale cengage deals news vault
8:34
which is an integrated search service across the various products like gail
8:37
has recently unveiled which includes of course though
8:40
seventeenth and eighteenth century bernie collection of newspapers the
8:43
nineteenth century british library materials
8:45
and the nineteenth century u_s_ newspapers
8:48
these resources are
8:50
are actively market among our institutions and
8:54
the nineteenth century u_s_ newspapers and is a good case example where they
8:58
provide primary source newspaper content an to the tune of some three hundred
9:02
thousand issues
9:04
they represent this material is
9:06
quote compelling as it is comprehensive and i think that
9:10
we can all recognize sales copy from from actual assessments but
9:16
weeded out quick assessment and we're looking at further into deals
9:20
collections and will be providing some detailed assessment of course of the
9:23
year
9:24
but just as an example of the kind of assessment we are doing we took a look
9:27
at the
9:28
uh...
9:30
measurements of the collection down to the issue level where they're published
9:33
by state
9:34
and stand overlay them on a map to see how comprehensive and or compelling the
9:39
question was
9:40
and this is just a a screen grab of
9:43
jia reference map indicating that
9:45
the prevalence of issues and as you can see here there is
9:48
certainly run
9:49
a nice representation across the country for the nineteenth century newspapers
9:53
but it is
9:54
frequently concentrated in just a few areas which often represents the source
9:58
collections from which they digitized this material
10:00
they have digitize from variety of state archives historical societies
10:05
hot public libraries in and if you live rekha academic library cases as well
10:10
so will be providing working on this kind of collections
10:17
by contrast perhaps in the nineteenth century instead of the library of
10:20
congress and
10:22
national endowment for the humanities effort as you know chronicling america
10:25
is continuing to to move forward
10:27
i'm providing a certain amount of transparency to their collections
10:30
through
10:32
the the p_p_i_ uh... access to their materials in allowing crawlers to search
10:36
the materials this this might be a model that we can
10:38
hold up as official example against the commercial constant
10:45
to we've also been monitoring other materials that are going on in the the
10:49
external sector in particular we've we've paid close attention to what's
10:53
happening with the google news archives this is google's effort announced a a
10:56
couple years ago to digitize past issues of newspapers
11:01
recently they've
11:02
enhance the the service by providing a titleist finally judy news that is
11:07
represented in their collection
11:09
which include some twenty four hundred titles and three point five million
11:13
issues
11:13
the concept that they're drawing from comes from both publishers of the
11:17
newspapers as well as the content historical content provided by pro quest
11:20
uh... and heritage microfilm
11:24
as as well as from a few other sources as well there's there's not much
11:28
transparency to this is not necessarily geared toward scholars but it is
11:31
nope inaccessible resource for our users
11:34
one of the
11:36
questions were continuing to pursue his what what future directions this might
11:39
take and we've heard recently from uk reliable source that
11:43
and goto is discontinuing this this
11:46
project entirely what the future of access to these newspapers are still
11:50
open to question
11:51
but will continue to monitor this
11:54
one other ari abuse i just want to touch and
11:58
relates to the british libraries efforts gone
12:00
and they announced last year anew partnership with scottish company bright
12:04
solid
12:05
too
12:07
engage in a ten-year exclusive contract with that company to digitize up to
12:11
forty million pages over a ten-year period
12:14
bright solid is is bigger genealogy market in the u_k_ has one of the
12:17
largest edging algae companies
12:20
healthcare and so they've they've given up by considerable control at least
12:24
temporarily chief commercial sector
12:26
uh... to to make this happen
12:28
certainly there's there's great advantage to making this contact
12:31
sensible but
12:32
on that at a cost you researchers
12:35
along the way and perhaps more concerning is beat
12:39
overall strategic change in the british library services for the newspapers
12:42
while they're transferring the print newspapers to a more state of the our
12:46
facility in boston spa they have
12:48
they're no longer serving access to the print materials outside the library in
12:53
fact they've they've also sees the microfilm of of newspapers
12:58
from the from the u_k_
12:59
and they're also temporarily at least not duplicating microfilm in order so
13:03
this is severely impacting
13:05
programs like c_ urls demand purchase of newspapers because our inability to
13:10
acquire this material
13:12
british library claims to be com
13:15
providing duplication in the future with the third-party source but there's not
13:18
much news out there about that
13:20
and they still the open question of
13:23
what kind of solution they're going to present for the future in terms of
13:25
digital in just a newspapers
13:30
another area that cereal is that
13:34
addressing prom challenges includes the materials in the legal government sector
13:38
government in related publications and
13:41
we've been playing a lot of attention recently to legal cereals that are being
13:46
produced by along library microform consortium which will talk about later
13:50
but certainly there are many competing
13:54
products out there that are libraries are subscribing to which includes of
13:56
course hein online
13:58
which has
14:00
reportedly some sixty million pages of legal history and their their product
14:04
ended in february
14:06
they've denounced
14:08
what they're calling their digital ownership program which provides
14:11
libraries
14:14
harddrive
14:14
with all of the content to their historical collections if you choose to
14:18
purchase it
14:20
i don't know if anyone had at your institutions have looked at this
14:24
program right now but it does raise a certain amount of concern in terms of
14:28
what
14:28
one could actually do with that racial content if it's uh... simply handed over
14:32
to them with absolutely no access rights
14:36
this is not much better than a door stop at this point so we welcome your your
14:40
feedback on that and and what
14:42
what you've explored with them
14:44
and might not be better to encourage depositing that material with a third
14:47
party trust archive
14:50
second product of course in the legal in government romans lexisnexis and
14:54
as you all recently no
14:56
they've engaged in a major shift dot to view of portion of their content to
15:01
protest
15:02
which
15:03
uh... recently completed the the purchase of the congressional
15:06
information service and u_p_s_ product lines from lexus nexus in progress
15:11
this i saw it
15:13
some implications for our libraries as
15:16
purposes recently announced n two major initiatives to
15:20
bring a lot of its contents online in work sensible formats the u_p_s_
15:25
collection
15:26
that's the plan the history volts
15:29
which intends to bring twenty three million pages on line of this content
15:32
a lot of which we've already purchased in microfilm in the past so getting some
15:36
more transparency from the publishers as to what
15:40
what kind of pricing what kind of access bottles of providing this is quite
15:43
important
15:47
thirty area that we just want to go to briefly touch on before you be move
15:51
forward is on the the legacy collections of agricultural
15:55
and technical cereals
15:57
you are
15:58
no doubt familiar with the national agricultural libraries digital
16:02
repository
16:03
which was brought online
16:06
a couple years ago
16:08
which contain some seven hundred thousand pages of contents from that
16:12
u_s_ department of agriculture
16:13
including a number of cereals
16:15
by
16:16
this is a a nice acid insist it's a departure from the normal commercial
16:22
activities that we've seen there's there's not a lot of commercial activity
16:24
with agriculture databases
16:26
although certainly journal publication for my car
16:31
quickly snapped up by commercial publishers such as elsevier
16:34
federal support for agriculture research though is his remained flat for the
16:38
better part of fifteen years including support for collaborative efforts that
16:42
on have been going on and so
16:45
increasingly the burden is being placed on the academic universities and land
16:49
grant
16:51
universities to support access to this materials
16:54
cereals been working with of u_s_ agricultural information network
16:58
uh... to explore the ramifications of of
17:02
the digital world um in the field of agriculture
17:05
and we'll be talking a little bit more about that partnership towards the end
17:08
of presentation
17:10
but certainly the institutions that that are
17:14
faced with these challenges including cornell and
17:17
university of arizona and the like
17:19
are faced with supporting access to these materials have been a way that
17:22
they're for scholars need it
17:28
one other earlier in the realm of technical cereals is that national
17:31
technical information service and other governments database auntie i asked for
17:36
those of you who are not familiar with it is up
17:39
an agency of the department of commerce as one of the few government agencies
17:43
that
17:44
operates on it cost recovery basis and has a rotating funds would be a ms
17:49
more like a commercial operation than it cover map does
17:53
them although i don't need to be a person he is almost as byzantine as our
17:56
government
17:56
uh...
17:57
but they are and they are continuing to make bad
18:01
technical and engineering resources produced by the government available for
18:04
a feature either
18:06
national technical
18:08
information library which was announced and two thousand nine
18:13
a number you probably have access to that recipient
18:17
there
18:18
reason i bring this up islamic again serves as
18:23
something that the libraries should be paying close attention to instead of
18:27
having a voice in the direction of that kind of future there's been provided
18:31
through this
18:32
some recent developments bear
18:36
watching or perhaps some community action for instance in november at the
18:39
national archives are nara
18:41
announced a partnership with auntie i asked him to insure long-term
18:45
preservation access to
18:48
the authentication secured
18:50
digital that technical and engineering information
18:53
in effect america seated all control of government publications to the ante at
18:57
switch intern makes them available on for a fee
19:00
so what the implications are for the individual departments that have
19:05
previously hosted a number of their materials on their sites for free
19:09
is open to question right now
19:11
so it's it's something that we need more clarification on
19:15
they've also recently put up on their site that isn t i_n_s_'s recently put up
19:19
on their site
19:20
at the end of march of tender for a potential joint venture
19:24
relationship that would support
19:26
and publishing environment for you
19:28
books reports and data sets produced by the firm federal government
19:32
in effect they're looking for commercial partners to help monetize some of this
19:36
content in ways that will sit certainly impact art collections so this is
19:40
something the game that i think that we should be drawing attention to and
19:45
standing querying with skeptical i on on what kind of plans they have in place
19:49
for these
19:52
so that's just a thought
19:55
shot across the bow about the landscape itself there's growing resources
20:00
diversity of players
20:02
tensions between public and private institutions
20:06
and uh... at marietta forms of access to two materials
20:10
including overlap and databases that had a lot of us are subscribing to multiple
20:14
copies
20:15
we're interested in your insights on on these issues and invite you to submit
20:20
your your thoughts
20:21
via the chatroom later on in discussion
20:24
i think i want to turn it over did to say what is cir l
20:28
doing about these positions
20:31
uncertainly homework were addressing in korea fashion as we can number of these
20:36
areas
20:37
bridging occur is going to take over here to present
20:40
house here all is supporting
20:41
the transition from print to digital
20:43
and coordinating libraries efforts
20:48
and thanks chase
20:52
as email continues to work with communities of interest under the global
20:56
resources umbrella
20:58
to expand digital access to uni primary sources
21:02
we expect that just over four million pages of new digital content will be
21:06
made available during our current fiscal year
21:10
this has been a particularly productive year as we near completion of two major
21:14
initiatives
21:15
the american periodical spend c_r_ al in the initial phase of the world newspaper
21:20
archive
21:22
but cereals involvement in building digital collections also includes a
21:25
number of collaborative projects
21:28
executed on a much smaller scale
21:30
to meet specifically identified research needs
21:33
the scale and variety of recent digitization activities which leverage
21:38
the strength of the c_ r_ l_ community is particularly noteworthy
21:42
sense as genesys noted online collections have been trending toward an
21:46
expanding commercial distribution
21:49
to briefly review the status of cereal digitization
21:52
i went first to know several open-access initiative sponsored by global resources
21:57
affiliated groups
22:00
the first of these is trail
22:02
technical report archive and image library
22:06
there are over
22:07
currently over twenty five partner institutions working an active
22:10
collaboration
22:11
to identify digitized an archive federal technical reports issued prior to
22:17
nineteen seventy five
22:20
trail began operating in two thousand six as an initiative in partnership with
22:24
weller the greater western library alliance
22:28
administrative support is now through c_ r_ al
22:32
selection cataloging tasks are executed by staff atrial member libraries
22:37
digital production is largely through the google decision stream
22:41
at the university of michigan
22:44
betrayal content ranges widely fest based exploration to alternative energy
22:49
sources
22:52
although many people need
22:53
saying that the primaries today of this literature would be for studying the
22:56
history of technology
22:58
many reports contain data very relevant to today's problems
23:02
and in fact some experiments could not be duplicated today duty currently
23:06
safety regulations
23:08
for example the trail collection includes early studies on the state
23:12
functioning of nuclear power plants
23:14

during the recent japanese nuclear power plant crisis
23:26
trampoline over twenty thousand documents or two million pages ought are
23:31
available on the trail collection
23:34
we these are available in cajun each format with searchable navigator

content being a powerhouse at party trust
23:51
future trail constantly include energy exploration reports issued after the
23:56
nineteen seventy three oh well crisis
23:58
and documents from the nuclear regulatory commission

as well as coordinating contents legacy content with the n_t_s_b_ database
24:08
the trail collection represent significant legacy documentation which
24:12
previously had only fugitive access
24:15
and we're encouraging whiter participation to protect this at-risk
24:19
material
24:20
you can contact jeanne simon for more information on how to join trail
24:27
an additional initiative under the global resources umbrella of activities

the diesel projects are funded in part through the u_s_ department of education
24:47
tick theo grants
24:48
using technology for preservation and access to resources from various world
24:53

24:55
serial supports additional initiative in collaboration with the university of

25:36
and here i share some postcards from be personal collection of
25:40
the former head of the insha pacific and africa collections at the british
25:44
library
25:48
among other global resources projects
25:51
affiliate interest groups within the area microform projects an issue that's
25:54
our planning
25:55
several specialize collaborative digitization efforts
25:58
to leverage access to research resources
26:01
these include that have a role a district archives project in uganda
26:07
all which is helping to fund digitization of local government
26:11
archival materials dating from nineteen ten
26:13
to nineteen seventy
26:15
including legal procedures that election records this prejudices is expected to
26:19
be completed in
26:20
twenty twelve
26:22
and seen their slavic and east european my perform project plans to microfilm
26:27
and digitize periodical titles
26:29
published by ukrainian political an intellectual
26:32
immigrate groups
26:35
deviate from the period nineteen forty five to nineteen fifty four
26:42
delivering important content
26:46
alright cereals own collections in electronic format
26:49
has been a key strategy for increasing access to digital primary sources for
26:54
sierra libraries
26:55
this is taken several approaches
26:58
and i'm sure that most of you are familiar by now with the world newspaper
27:01
archive
27:03
partnership with reid x a division of music
27:05
to preserve in provide persistent achu historical newspapers
27:09
from various world regions
27:11
this is a member supported project
27:14
have been nearly sixty charter supporters since its inception in two
27:17
thousand eight
27:18
who've made significant investments and cost
27:21
and many more sierra libraries have subscribed at favorable rates
27:26
this tragic it's an opportunity for greater voice of sierra libraries
27:30
concerning which historical papers are being digitized
27:33
and advisory group has prioritized titles not likely to be included in
27:37
other databases
27:38
and the source content of microfilm comes from holdings not widely-held
27:43
edcia ralph and a few syria libraries
27:47
and zero has archive microfilm for all of the titles
27:53
currently only pre-nineteen twenty two content is available for the debian andy
27:58
but they send feedback from sierra libraries
28:00
we are a rich in his bank to pursue rights to add more recently published
28:05
content
28:06
and here i just i a list rating from p_-three modulus which are currently
28:10
available
28:11
on latin america africa in south asia
28:15
and the east european module is in progress with the launch expected in
28:20
march of twenty twelve
28:24
singel has taken a different approach with are significant holdings of
28:27
historical american trade and technical periodicals
28:30
many of which had to cherry related to the point where they could not be
28:33
circulated
28:35
this part of this project is a partnership with pro quest
28:38
to extend access to this content
28:42
we're now close to reaching the project goal of three million pages expected to
28:46
be completed later this year
28:50
topics include patents
28:52
stagger culture photography commerce and telecommunications
28:57
and this year and a significant achievement was gap filling
29:01
all through kat contributions through volumes identified at the university of
29:04
pennsylvania library
29:07
which added over two hundred thousand pages particularly covering topics in
29:11
construction inria weights velopment and we're very grateful
29:14
on two counts library for that assistance
29:18
serialized archiving the bound volumes for the a p_c_r_ l collection
29:23
and i just like to remind you that digital interlibrary loan is available
29:26
for articles or full volumes
29:28
for those c_r_ l personal is that those zero libraries which had not purchased
29:33
cpc around
29:36
and finally last but not least i'd like to mention the in-house digitization
29:41
efforts that c_r_ al
29:42
began in two thousand seven as a response to scholars
29:46
evolving preference for online resources
29:49
currently there are over fifteen thousand titles in three million pages
29:55
available
29:56
most of this content is produced as digital delivery that is it scanned in
30:00
response to request for a bone
30:02
but the file seventeens and links from catalog records as you can see here are
30:06
don't know if you can read it or not but commons catalog record in the upper
30:09
right-hand corner
30:11
visibly cd pbf
30:14
these materials are not all public domain materials but they are made
30:19
available on unki restricted access to see r_l_ libraries based on fair use
30:25
principles
30:27
this crisis the status of efforts to digitize specialized primary resource
30:31
content n_c_r_ out and collaborating institutions
30:34
i will be happy to answer questions during are about to make it at the into
30:39
the session
30:40
right now i would like to treated over to mary will keep who will address how
30:45
sierra relatives supporting
30:47
expanded access to third-party content as an extension of our collections
30:51
building programs
30:56
consistently okie
30:57
see well traditional purchase program still play oboe in providing access to
31:02
important primary source materials
31:06
through these programs
31:07
member identify
31:09
members identified resources chrissy ralph to acquire
31:13
i want to briefly review what's your own his down this past year
31:17
in our historical programs
31:20
before i go on to power efforts
31:23
electronic licensing
31:28
access to primary source materials has always been a key to see whales mission
31:34
and through the purchase proposal program
31:36
seaworld provides access to important collections which may be too costly or
31:42
too esoteric
31:43
for individual institutions to acquire
31:47
here you see two of the items purchased as a result
31:50
but this year's ballot c route was able to acquire a nine items
31:55
with a total list price of over a hundred and fifty thousand dollars
32:00
the full list of items purchased
32:03
can be found on the page on our website
32:06
for the purchase proposal program
32:12
i want to thank all the libraries who nominated items for the ballot this task
32:17
force
32:18
member participation is key to see or else strength
32:22
and we will light on your knowledge an expertise
32:26
you are the ones who identify important primary source materials
32:30
you are the ones who not only the works
32:33
and you are the ones that vote i'm the resources
32:38
nominations are open for next fall's purchase proposal ballot
32:42
collection
32:43
x at member institutions have been sent the information if you have a question
32:49
about this please let me know later on
32:55
parashar purchase program
32:58
recently ended
32:59
and i'm very pleased to say all five items
33:02
are being purchase
33:10
ul wishes to especially thank those members who were able to contribute
33:15
funds towards these purchases
33:18
recent economic times make their support
33:21
all the more important in this voluntary program
33:24
the entire
33:25
zero community benefits from this
33:33
before moving on to a recent efforts with the electronica licensing i want to
33:38
quickly review the path
33:40
traveled
33:41
in recent years
33:43
after continuing to hear from our members that they wish
33:47
c u l
33:49
to become involved with licensing major primary source databases
33:54
sql survey member interest
33:58
uh on the purchase proposal ballot
34:00
in the fiscal year two thousand ten
34:03
to important databases rose to the top
34:07
with our members indicating strong interest
34:11
at last year's annual meeting i was able to report offers from both publishers
34:16
had been made
34:17
and where all convinced of the end of may two thousand and ten
34:21
uptake i'm both items
34:24
was very successful
34:27
even tho
34:28
both products have been on the market for some time
34:36
whether or not a member took advantage at those offers zero received it clearer
34:42
positive
34:43
message from our members
34:45
affirming that you wish to us to continue to explore
34:49
future possible opportunities
34:52
so out of the purchase proposal ballot last november
34:55
we presented three firm offers fourth electronic resources
35:01
if things you see on this slide
35:05
part of cereals
35:06
processes to help them for new york new collection decision
35:10
so long with the authors zero made available
35:14
analysis in the form of global resources reviews which virginia car we'll talk
35:19
more about later
35:22
to one of the three farms had a very successful opt eight
35:26
with the third one having a modest uptake
35:33
in addition to three firm offers
35:36
last fall c or al
35:38
served eight member interest
35:41
for an additional six
35:43
author titles
35:44
the five th titles you see here on this side
35:48
are the ones which have strong member interests
35:51
cir l negotiated offers for these and then percent at the offers to the
35:56
membership after a late mid-winter
36:00
the office for british records on the atlantic world
36:04
of the one for social explore
36:06
are close now
36:08
but the remaining three titles are still open
36:11
uptake and feedback has been positive
36:15
and if you are interested in the open offers
36:18
for foreign office files for china
36:21
india russian empire
36:23
we're saving americana
36:25
i would like to remind you to contact the vendors
36:34
white exploring the electronic licensing it made sense for us to use the
36:40
framework of the purchase proposal pellet
36:42
to test the waters
36:44
however
36:46
exploration made some things obvious
36:49
zero should focus on the areas in which we have strength
36:54
archives
36:55
newspapers along with the social sciences and humanities we will of
37:00
course continued to listen to me member suggestions
37:04
for which there is strong support
37:07
we will also continue to coordinate with other licensing bodies
37:12
when mutually beneficial
37:16
sql will integrate these activities with the global resources forum
37:21
where we will share a critical information
37:24
about online primary source databases
37:28
virginia car will talk more about this shortly
37:32
licensing will be separated from purchased proposal ballot
37:37
exploration
37:38
made it obvious that institutions needed a different time frame to act alan
37:44
electronico offers
37:45
as the processes
37:47
for members to approve them
37:49
differs greatly than the process for members voting on the purchase proposal
37:54
ballot
37:55
to this effect cyril sees offering licensing opportunities atleast twice a
38:01
year
38:02
we do attention remain flexible in order to respond
38:06
quickly to time-sensitive
38:10
opportunities
38:15
next we move on to current partnerships
38:18
and future directions
38:27
the sites umbrella with licensing cereal is engaging in synergy partnerships
38:32
which will allow more members to have more input
38:36
on content development
38:39
and or help expand access
38:42
one example is the electronic thesis online service
38:47
both defense
38:49
after decades of purchasing dissertations from u_k_ universities
38:54
serial cyril is now working with the british library
38:58
to provide web access to dissertations and thesis three the ease-of-use
39:03
database
39:04
infosoft resisting the pool single point of access
39:08
the feces produced by participating
39:11
u_k_ higher education
39:14
institutions
39:15
they have over two hundred and fifty thousand works in their database
39:19
and new records thirteen added weekly
39:22
however if the desired work is not get in the database iffy is required
39:30
as heroes permitted to place board
39:32
his and to alert patrons when the dissertation is available for personal
39:37
download
39:38
seaworld will pave the initial cost works not get scammed
39:42
which have been requested by patrons and remember institutions three white demand
39:48
purchase program for doctoral dissertations
39:52
besides this new direction for art our traditional demand purchase program
39:58
throughout worked with the british library last year to fund the digitizing
40:03
shin
40:04
of four hundred dissertations
40:06
focused on the middle piece
40:08
the persian gulf
40:10
and or islam
40:13
current efforts include our partnership with the law library microform
40:18
consortium
40:18
or elem l l mc
40:22
by working with the joint steering committee to prioritize selections for
40:26
teach dissection
40:27
the serial community will benefit
40:30
from in expanded amount international content
40:34
in this resource
40:36
a notable example of new international material in the l and c database
40:42
is the recent
40:44
haiti legal patrimony project
40:47
collaborative effort to create comprehensive
40:51
digital collection to take the place of items lost in last year's earthquake
40:57
efficiently elements e will be scanning over one million pages relevant legal
41:03
material
41:03
from cereals own collections this year
41:07
the full database
41:08
has over twenty
41:10
at at this time has over twenty million pages of content
41:14
and his available to all see realm libraries
41:17
during this first year of the partnership
41:21
later this year see roll-up zero will be sending out more information about
41:26
equitable cost-sharing options
41:28
for ongoing subscriptions to the allele mc
41:32
database
41:35
we will continue to expand and explore partnerships
41:40
one such
41:40
one such resource is the internal university consortium for political and
41:46
social research or icp s
41:52
libraries who do not
41:53
presently have access to this applicator of data
41:56
and services
41:58
asked us to explore possibilities
42:01
later this year cyril will hold a teleconference on this
42:05
where we will welcome your feedback and questions
42:10
teleconferences
42:11
along with product reviews vendor assessment
42:14
fall under the umbrella of the global resource for him
42:18
rich i'm happy to say that you will not talk about
42:27
company hearing
42:30
at last year's in your counsel we introduced plans for the global
42:34
resources for m akaka framework of activity resources
42:37
logically emerging from long-standing c_r_ al cooperative collection
42:41
development efforts
42:43
including the area mike reform project
42:45
global resources projects and purchase programs
42:49
the foreign isn't visions as a way to foster the exchange of the community
42:53
knowledge and expertise
42:55
in order to strengthen decision making
42:58
collection investments and management
43:00
n_c_r_ out libraries
43:03
we have now launch a special portion of our website
43:07
dedicated to the forum and its information sharing tools
43:11
and you will be able to find this dot
43:15
section of our site there is a camera at the hyatt level of her sights onto the
43:19
forum
43:20
omg i'd would like to buy it
43:23
initially and just going to be showing screen grants from sections of the
43:26
um... global resources forum
43:28
section of our website this afternoon
43:31
but i a currency to explore this content live online as soon as possible
43:36
everyone should go there right after this webinar
43:38
emphasis right at the forum will come from your comments suggestions in
43:42
writings
43:43
generated within the serial communities please do start checking out what's
43:47
there
43:48
and i also want to think those individuals and syria libraries who've
43:51
already written up content for the forum
43:54
as well as a focus group selected from fort sierra libraries
43:58
who gave us very helpful feedback in the planning stages
44:04
the major components before and includes
44:07
reviews
44:08
profiles
44:09
topic guides
44:10
and data entry walls
44:12
as well as specialize webinars and teleconferences
44:16
james and mary have already noted how the forum provides additional
44:20
information
44:21
on that collections building topics they have been reduced
44:25
these pages include reviews of all the third-party databases offered to see our
44:29
out libraries for licensing during this past year
44:33
and on future reviews will include
44:36
several of the items that genesys mentions frances gail's news fox and the
44:41
outcomes of the google news or archive resource which apparently has been
44:46
recently discontinued
44:49
profiles of digital repositories and aggregators
44:52
are included such as the firm james mentioned which has been contacted chief
44:55
skin newspapers for the british library
44:58
in topic guys reflect current priorities and challenges in collection building
45:04
now just again i apologize that these are screen grabs um... dot they'll just
45:08
give you a little ob hints of what's there live online
45:12
on that looking at priest the procedure for you be here which is now posted
45:17
there
45:18
arm reviews are intended to contain timely in updated information including
45:23
whatever pre release details we can obtain the for pending digital
45:27
collections
45:30
resources to be reviewed well represent the priority collecting areas for this
45:34
year our community
45:35
including all the databases as i mentioned for which we will be
45:39
investigating licensing
45:41
there is a form blonde the apne landing page for reviews which com will appeal
45:48
allow you to suggest items to be reviewed and we hope that the this
45:52
platform will also be helpful in recruiting volunteers to write reviews
45:58
we've already obtained critical assessments for members
46:02
for the currently reviews which are posted
46:04
including four bibliography rs at the university of north carolina
46:08
no contributed to this review that i'm showing from the resource the foreign
46:13
office files on china
46:14
from international publishers
46:18
these reviews can be a powerful tool to leverage information gained from local
46:23
trial assessments databases in sierra libraries
46:27
although the timing of purchase decisions differs each institution we
46:31
expected maintain an add to the information in these reviews
46:37
a feedback form and i don't know if you can see the green button there in the
46:41
upper right-hand corner of the feedback form
46:44
will allow the ongoing integration of observations on the resources
46:49
dot being reviews including comments on use cases end user satisfaction
46:56
the reviews will include technical specifications an information obtained
47:01
directly from the publishers not posted publicly
47:04
we also cite other reviews including those in the charleston advisor
47:09
which guy i would like to remind you may still made available to you all see r_l_
47:13
libraries
47:20
profiles art independent assessments of major electronic publishers an
47:24
educator's repositories and other service providers
47:28
often growing out of the certification activities conducted by c_r_ l
47:32
to protect the investment of our members in their products and services
47:37
the profiles document the history governance business practices
47:42
preservation strategies
47:43
and technical capabilities of the organizations

48:11
newspaper collection at the british library
48:17
for some time zero has issued topic guides to art collections
48:22
which are especially useful in pointing out the range of content contained in
48:26
large microform sense
48:28
newer topic guides developed under the global resources form framework
48:33
will include discussion of the challenges faced today in collections
48:36

if you will of the forum
50:12
the dual former para style for the end of this but
50:15
uh... data and twelfth certainly
50:18
sierra has been working over the past several years to
50:23
support collection management decisions which include of course acquisition
50:28
retention preservation and digitization of of contact all of these permeate the
50:32
various activities
50:34
unpacked at sea are out
50:36
ends
50:37
we're were putting them in a place that they're easy to find issues
50:41
were actually providing
50:43
an amount of data that heretofore has been
50:47
unavailable
50:47
uh... huge libraries for for assessment
50:51
and later in tools on top of that is that the members can use
50:54
to too
50:57
the collections decisions at their institutions
50:59
as virginia mention the print archives registry was introduced last year daniel
51:04
council formed by liz and pain
51:07
and in we hope that you found
51:09
it interesting and who could you site much that it was a
51:13
a prototype of the time is it's been continued continue to the updated and
51:18
maintained and we're working on a
51:20
a more robust
51:22
paper registry
51:24
that bernie mention this morning in his presence reports during the business
51:28
section
51:29
that will be actually uh... put online in the next week
51:34
and will also be featured i think
51:36
in the
51:38
afternoon in the second session of this afternoon's form as well
51:41
transferred here and we encourage you to stay online for that by the way on
51:45
considered with us
51:46
but
51:47
so that is what's currently available out there and i just wanted to mention
51:51
uh... a couple other
51:54
tools in the works over the next year
52:00
one of the activities that were engaged in is the result of successful grant
52:05
from
52:06
the issue of museum in library services under the national
52:10
leadership grants program
52:12
and this was eight
52:14
the projects untitled cooperative print archiving by discipline
52:19
developing an infrastructure to sustain color scholarly resources
52:23
this really is growing out of the work over the past several years print
52:27
archiving
52:29
both in terms of serials on print archiving activities and its efforts to
52:34
form an international coalition that is working on print archiving
52:40
but locally or cooperative lee
52:42
uh... in the course of the
52:45
discussions among the participants in those
52:47
it became clear that
52:49
the most successful clobbered of programs were those that were
52:53
formed and maintained by communities that have a long-standing
52:58
interesting collaboration and a history of cooperation through
53:01
collaborative programmes
53:03
in particularly you heard from two groups that were exploring these topics
53:08
rethought useful to bring them together
53:11
through one of the national leadership grants to
53:14
further describe their activities so we're working into particular domains
53:18
through the course of this to your program
53:20
both with law
53:22
and agar culture
53:24
to mitigate the high cost of storing and maintaining these collections were
53:28
partnering with
53:30
the law library microphone consortium on the legal side
53:34
and the u_s_ agricultural information network on the agricultural side to
53:38
build sustainable to build a sustainable plan
53:42
for the cooperative management of legacy print materials
53:45
this is a
53:47
consensus building effort by which were bringing these communities together
53:51
to share information
53:52
too
53:54
aggregate data ends to develop d
53:58
model for the sustainable base of support for proper to print archiving
54:03
both at the national in at the international level for these
54:06
so we're focusing on and well-defined bodies within these communities as you
54:10
know the helen c huh
54:12
partnership a c_ r_ o_
54:13
has given us a lot of data about the materials that they have
54:18
microphones or microfuge for for decades and now we're making accessible in
54:22
digital format
54:23
we are
54:24
aggregating the data
54:27
that they're providing terms of
54:29
what content they've been
54:32
scanning and also whatever's they've been doing among their community
54:38
unprofor archiving there's a lot of materials that isn't has been made
54:41
digitally accessible in
54:43
previous products that we've described such as hein online that institutions
54:46
are are increasingly feeling the pinch of storage and and cost management of
54:51
those materials so we're looking at the
54:54
m archival conditions necessary for the the community to
54:58
to put these together into a cooperative him
55:00
print archives
55:02
along the way will be some assembling disappointing information based which is
55:06
how it comes back to these tools and data
55:09
that will provide holdings information that will be enough information to help
55:14
delegate archives in
55:16
in a centralized database
55:18
and will also be working closely with the community members to documents the
55:24
baseline archival conditions of the materials how they're being stored what
55:27
access conditions there are two them
55:29
and the like and all of this will be put together in a in a robust information
55:32
based
55:33
for other libraries to to consider and use
55:36
as well as developing the templates and models for service agreements that could
55:39
be used in other products
55:43
a second project i want to describe here it is
55:47
the icon global newspaper directory
55:50
as you well know we've been long-time supporters of the international
55:54
coalition on newspapers
55:56
which is strewn international cooperative body focused on preservation
56:01
bibliographic access and now a increasingly
56:03
digital access to newspapers
56:06
through and other national leadership gramps here l has
56:11
working too
56:13
working with the number of library and publisher partners
56:16
to court makes
56:17
and provide access to meta data on historic newspapers in their digital
56:21
versions
56:22
this really is kind of the the next generation icon database
56:26
the global newspaper directory will form a foundation
56:30
for comprehensive registry of newspapers publish globally which will include u_s_
56:33
newspapers
56:35
uh... and it will integrate information
56:38
on the newspapers
56:39
from as i said a variety of sources which would include both the library of
56:43
congress and the andean peace as well as
56:48
serials on coordinated efforts such as the world newspaper archive
56:51
and the records of various commercial partners as well including remixes other
56:56
other products as well
56:57
the database will combine bibliographic entries along with
57:01
uh... holdings information and granular meditate about
57:05
uh... hopefully down to the issue level about the holdings in digital products
57:09
this data can be used to provided information not only about what's
57:12
already been done
57:14
but overlap with print collection so that institutions can make local
57:17
decisions on whether or not
57:18
to acquire database
57:21
store their print copies in long-term storage to microfilm that material are
57:26
introducing their own digital products
57:29
we'd like to thank the institute of museum and library services for their
57:32
further significant intensive significant support on this which is
57:36
also being augmented by support from sierra
57:39
as well as the american antiquarian society
57:44
just on the subject of of news as well as a data i wanted to just mention
57:50
something that bernie brought up this morning in the business section
57:53
for those of you who worked in attendance
57:55
another significant activity we have uh... accomplish this year
57:59
is a detailed assessment
58:01
on the state of newspaper publishing within i'd towards
58:06
borne digital news and looking closely at the
58:11
the implications of when first news publications
58:14
this came out of uh... discussion that was begun in two thousand nine under at
58:19
the end it project
58:21
by which the congress convened a a variety of librarians
58:26
publishers data providers and other stakeholders to examine
58:30
implications of deposit of electronic newspapers
58:33
it became clear that conference that
58:35
more detail is necessary in order to explore
58:39
by how-to receive deposit adequately retain for long term
58:44
retention access
58:46
it electronica news cyril proposed too
58:50
uh... the library of congress is our office of strategic initiatives who
58:54
approved at this this report
58:56
which cyril dinner an assessment on the life cycle of news production as it
59:00
stands today
59:06
weaver bend
59:09
this will be a put up on the web in the next few weeks
59:12
but uh...
59:12
briefly described what what we did was to examine the current production
59:16
processes
59:17
of news organizations
59:19
from the some articles through the distribution of the online channels as
59:23
well as in the press production networks
59:26
the
59:29
we use that for newspapers as
59:31
case study as well as augmented by by other case studies of other newspapers
59:36
this will all be detailed and report but in what we look to do was to figure out
59:40
both
59:42
what point to the production processes
59:44
are the
59:45
uh... electronica news being generated how are they being stored what kind of
59:49
medicaid is attached to them
59:51
how is that many data carry through the production process
59:55
bands and who's doing what with that kind of data
59:58
although this is is really in the end towards
60:01
on the solutions that
60:03
the library congress and other organizations are seeking about
60:06
long-term
60:07
in fact legal deposit of electronic news
60:09
some of the findings were
60:11
were quite interesting and we'll be covering them
60:14
in more detail in a reports to the collection development officer way as
60:18
well as in the webinar that we've promised in july on news go to our
60:22
website at to sign up for that one
60:26
rocking good time
60:27
but uh... friends that some of the things we look at where there are a
60:29
production of the p_b_s_ that her are sent to the plate setters for printing
60:33
uh... which are at the same time
60:36
dropped four for pickup by the aggregators such such as pressdisplay
60:40
who is this a in in fact uh... point in the stream that we can be picking up pbf
60:45
contact
60:46
for long-term storage and looking at some the implications of that
60:51
certainly that is that is one option is the closest representation to the print
60:55
newspaper without actually touching print itself
60:58
but there are
60:59
advantages and disadvantages to that as well for one thing
61:04
the p_f_ representation of news
61:06
uh... is by no means the he represents only a fraction of the news that's being
61:11
produced right now
61:12
since news
61:13
uh... organizations are increasingly turning the web to present breaking news
61:17
ongoing news throughout the day
61:19
and using their prints four
61:21
in effect commentary romance and sort of a sum up of what had happened over the
61:27
course of the previous day
61:28
there's a lot of news in between
61:30
each publication that is being missed
61:33
whereas if
61:34
one chooses to archive the website
61:36
uh... certainly web archiving as it stands today
61:39
is not sufficient to grab the variety of permutations of the news that you see on
61:44
their web sites
61:45
not only is it
61:46
producing a consummate streaming format
61:49
it is increasingly being aggregated from other sources that exist completely
61:53
outside of the news organization
61:56
many organizations don't even see
61:58
uh... stock quotes trusted asks or
62:01
or for that matter a_p_ newswires these show up on their site produce from a
62:04
third-party provider
62:06
by and are not actually owns nor held by that
62:11
publishers
62:12
so there's a lot of complications to this and and and uh...
62:16
report really goes into detail as part of the solution to looking at
62:20
preservation of mortgage from these papers
62:24
but just wanted to before i put them
62:27
conclude there's a comment on the chat line that
62:30
seem to suggest a the paper database that i was described in the new version
62:34
of the paper database was going to be imminently available that's actually not
62:37
correct haha
62:38
but uh... it it will be made available in the course of the next
62:43
year or so as the grant
62:45
progresses
62:46
and it'll just be the first phase of that database on that will be putting up
62:49
and will be working towards that
62:51
as time goes on so thank you for that question
62:55
but certainly the prototype is available right now off of the global resources
62:58
for website
63:02
so to wrap up
63:06
with attempted to describe
63:09
feel they have done a good job of describing the various ways that we are
63:12
expanding access to electronic primary source materials
63:17
probably speaking we've been pursuing to goals aggressively over that with the
63:21
past few years
63:22
and will continue to do so and it went well and there was too
63:26
areas of of art
63:28
on strategic interests are
63:30
increasing access to
63:31
primary source collections of electronic format
63:34
and as you've heard here we've been doing that in several ways one i'm going
63:37
to decision collections in the house
63:39
and large-scale digitization of fortunes are collections through partnerships
63:45
another way we're doing that is
63:46
by licensing
63:48
and promoting electronic access to electronic elections that are
63:51
held by third parties
63:53
and looking thirdly attached broader collection development partnerships with
63:58
partners such as the law library microphones torsion
64:00
or the ethos database of the british library
64:04
the secondary or through which we're pursuing on
64:07
increase access to attract resources
64:09
is supporting collection development at out your institutions
64:14
we're doing that again in several ways one by
64:19
promoting the global resources forum
64:21
which has a variety of of information for you to use in considering
64:26
licensing digitization etcetera
64:28
providing the dataset some tools laid on top of those that will support your
64:31
collection decisions
64:34
building consensus on important efforts such as print archiving
64:37
import or collaborative digitization
64:40
uh... trudy
64:42
webinars and the forum and the round tables and other live events such as
64:47
workshops
64:47
work school or in the broader trends of collections in the digital age and
64:51
focusing on on the
64:52
emerging trends and challenges
64:54
and sharing that back with the community in uh...
64:57
within aimed towards developing an action agenda common action agenda among
65:01
our institutions
65:03
so how
65:04
we've been pursuing these goals you through leveraging our partner stress we
65:08
are able to
65:10
push these these issues further and faster than we can do on our own
65:14
our partners include of course
65:16
the digital platforms and production work flows of
65:20
commercial or semi commercial organizations
65:23
or other could consortium such as the law library microform distortion
65:27
interfax
65:28
partners such as
65:29
uh... your institutions who are working with us collaboratively digitized
65:33
materials
65:34
as reaching mentioned trail project
65:37
uh... we're relying very heavily on the production flows of the university of
65:41
michigan
65:41
and the university of north texas
65:44
and hosting and that the common portal of activity art institution as well so
65:48
it's through these network of partnerships under that we can leverage
65:52
the collective strength of our institutions provide electronic access
65:57
the second way that work
65:59
pursuing this again fostering the exchange of community knowledge and
66:03
expertise
66:04
uh... through
66:06
the work of your institutions in
66:11
providing access to materials sharing information in your subject guides at
66:15
our life meetings
66:16
uh... through that webinars that we conducted and live events such as this
66:20
one
66:21
we're connecting members to resources in promoting and celebrating the collective
66:26
work ever institutions
66:27
we could not do what we do without your expertise and we hope that we are
66:31
providing the service that you have come to expect of us
66:34
and we continue to
66:36
secure active engagement feedback on this
66:39
as the overall theme of today sessions as is continuity
66:43
i hope that you can see that the activities that were pursuing today are
66:46
very much an extension of the collaborations heroes pursued over the
66:50
past
66:51
sixty two years
66:53
ends
66:54
all within a team of increasing the amount of of collections that your
66:58
scholars and patrons
66:59
can have access to
67:03
so with that
67:05
we're going to moved to
67:07
who and open discussion
67:09
and cross ur fingers that this is going to work at the same time
67:13
as a reminder to those who are who are out there
67:17
if you want to
67:18
uh... chat life by the fed you can spread press power one on your telephone
67:25
keypad
67:25
hot and the operator will assist you with that
67:28
uh... we're also accepting chats and comments via the the chat line
67:34
and i did want to just uh...
67:35
uh... overnight with one of the chance of received along the way
67:39
uh... related to the world newspaper archive and a future accessibility
67:43
w any advisory committee
67:45
uh... is is comprised of a variety of collection development
67:50
officers subject specialists and other representatives of our institutions
67:55
they'll be meeting this spring by phone to discuss long-range plan for the world
68:00
newspaper archive
68:01
as
68:03
virginia mentioned we have
68:05
three modules up and running right now that represents
68:09
more than one half million pages of content
68:11
and we're continuing to produce that material as well
68:15
the advisory committee will be charged to to focus very broadly on the
68:18
interests of of the community
68:20
to look at both
68:22
access to additional world regions or additional time periods
68:26
and will also be looking at broader partnerships to hopefully expand access
68:30
to content that is not held by our our partner institutions
68:34
for instance what is the british library doing with its non u_k_ newspapers
68:39
is this in error the floor access in partnership with them
68:42
or perhaps in some form of exchange
68:44
for access to the materials that they're making sensible to to people at their
68:50
institutions
68:51
help answer that question
68:54
virginia do you have a question
68:57
to receive a crisp
69:00
plus nasa content
69:04
the projects which dimensions
69:07
and there's several modes but aram for all of the digitize material
69:11
forecasted apne dreadfully from i'd c l_ health collections
69:16
first of all the
69:18
in-house scams that the digital production
69:22
all of that is listed in the sea isle catalog impacts the yes certainly
69:26
directly from mafia catalog
69:30
the role newspaper archive in the american puri articles from sierra ralph
69:35
all of those title three parties are cataloging cheap reflects the electronic
69:40
version of those materials if these records are not only in cereals online
69:45
catalog
69:46
the end whose records are available for for voting as well if you'd like to
69:51
speak with anyway i have technical services but the records are also
69:54
available in worldcat
69:58
for the other distinctive digital collections from other sources which i
70:02
mentioned those having their own interfaces their own particular
70:07
interfaces they are all listed and updates from p_p_h_ on our web site
70:11
called digital collections this includes the
70:15
reseller digital south asia library xx
70:17
wacky and there will soon be linked u_p_s_ trail interface from are list
70:22
additional collections
70:24
betrayal content is also listed in worldcat
70:28
we also have a question about how often occasion is handled for sierra hosted
70:33
material i mentioned that some of that is access restricted because of the copy
70:38
restrictions on the original sources
70:40
so and just a quick answer is that that isn't going to be verified
70:46
authentication and you'd we'd need to configure your local proxy servers to
70:51
handle that in our system staff can work with you
71:00
either live questions from the audience at this point
71:09
and have received one question
71:11
regarding first proposal nominations an electronic resources
71:17
un
71:17
if you could please namin eh and an issue it done for it
71:22
in the past year through the nomination form
71:29
that questions submitted online from from one of our
71:33
martyrs
71:35
who was asking uh... question about the long-term storage
71:40
com which i am
71:41
presuming to me a little bit about print archiving but mommy addresses so
71:46
first in terms of
71:47
belong to storage of some of our are digital initiatives
71:52
the question was related to
71:54
does long term is storage also real equates to dark archiving pdf
72:00
the content
72:02
uncertainly deed
72:04
long-term storage of our tradition material such as the microphones they're
72:08
going to
72:09
the world newspaper archive will will be a serial for
72:14
the indefinite future nam
72:17
and suspect is the same for all of the other content that were working within
72:20
in the print realm with the p_c_r_ l project
72:24
and all of the print materials are being retained here at the center
72:28
and spa access to those will not be a a dark archive but certainly we are
72:34
reducing the impact on the print collections by
72:37
loaning the electronic materials as well
72:40
long-term storage for for some of our partner projects continues to
72:47
be something were exploring but
72:49
print archiving programs that we have been engaging in with the
72:53
lol ivory microphone consortium and the like does involve a consistently ung
72:59
robust
73:00
dark storage activity where they are they're sending different materials
73:05
to facility where they are they're kept
73:09
on invites us before not unless must there is a
73:13
singing the significant reason that we need to go back to those collections
73:18
yeah it's a climate-controlled facility that sucks
73:21
in a secret bunker somewhere that you can never find again
73:27
i think some of the broader issues about
73:30
no long-term storage of dark archiving is related to
73:35
the the collective will of of some of our
73:39
institutions to fund these kind of projects and this is a large challenge
73:42
that we have
73:43
unpaid addressing it at some length
73:46
and along the lines of of our cooperative print archiving agreements
73:50
over the past
73:52
year or two we've been convening a variety of the consortium agree
73:56
consortium partners
73:58
on their focus on fri archiving
74:00
to look at both the storage agreements the cost models and some of the
74:04
sustainability
74:05
the iam alice
74:07
projects that we have uh... recently received funding for
74:11
focus on sustainability in the sense of you establishing the community norms
74:18
affordable an appropriate archiving that is we're looking at
74:21
mom
74:23
that the uh... the instances that are their best practices for this and we're
74:26
looking for consensus from these groups
74:29
so that we can turn it into
74:31
uh... national and international
74:34
de facto standard archiving that can be found in support of
74:38
bridget ward after that
74:39
you know the the issue sustainability man
74:42
is a really important one obviously
74:45
was in this business
74:48
we're looking at what they are analyst projects in the too broad feels
74:52
agriculture in law
74:54
is the the current archiving that's being done
74:58
and as the basis for
75:01
creating community consensus on what ought to be done and what can be done
75:06
the resources
75:07
local for collections if if the reserves available
75:11
for libraries the higher education field
75:13
in general the next few years ago to be
75:16
probably
75:19
so that we
75:20
we really can't come up with unrealistic expectations for
75:24
archiving it's very important that we establish consensus on the uh... when
75:27
what weekend
75:28
low-key what should be done and what can be done
75:32
relatively
75:33
i think that the uh...
75:35
julia of expertise
75:36
will will help make this more affordable
75:38
also the pulling of resources for those resources peace
75:42
or actually holdings of uh... of particular kinds of materials would is
75:46
going to be a very important to make a sustainable
76:00
questionable so mentioned about jason reminder that we are that cyril did
76:04
establish a case or archive
76:06
a print archive in two thousand one
76:10
and that that has been maintained by cyril o
76:15
consistently acting exceed has been growing
76:18
for years since we had since he did establish that that's keeping pace
76:22
pretty closely with the expensive case or content
76:32
we we don't know one question was how many era libraries have withdrawn k
76:36
store volumes we'd know that the anecdotal
76:41
information is that into beginning of our
76:44
their work on the case or fight we were getting countries to face or print by a
76:48
very small libraries bite mostly for your liberal arts college libraries
76:54
but it within the past three years we are getting content casework print fo
76:59
much bigger libraries
77:01
the receptors owner northwestern university particu newburgh two examples
77:06
of institutions that i have been divesting of the east
77:09
enough copies of case or to help populate the zero repository
77:15
r_j_ store archive here continues to grow and we give our regular reports and
77:20
comprehensiveness of that
77:22
our were continuing to solicit
77:25
deposits from
77:26
from u in fact to continue to populate the jstor archive as that continues to
77:31
grow
77:31
has been moving wall moves forward
77:33
we continue to supply and the jstor archive
77:37
it's not at that particular archive is not
77:40
completely dark contact we will go on the materials to the members are
77:43
requested
77:44
uh... fork for particular reasons
77:47
uh... i think the community consensus about dark archiving
77:50
in credit was and pain for helping took me off on this is that
77:54
dark archiving is
77:55
it's not
77:57
very challenging
77:59
proposition for for institutions to support
78:03
unmatched
78:05
the community consisting of consensus to date is that
78:09
they havent
78:10
they don't want to move to a fully darkar kat
78:13
but certainly we are
78:14
uh... those archives are fairly heavily restricted a protected
78:19
to limit them to
78:22
specific request for the physical material
78:24
perfect for
78:26
particular reason
78:30
that we have one question about the
78:32
not just of resources listed on our digital collections page
78:36
which ones are openly sensible to see around libraries
78:40
how we'd appreciate those from subscription
78:42
materials actually fathers resource is the only ones that are subscription
78:46
materials at this point licensor subscription materials art the american
78:51
councils serial distributor proquest indeed at the end
78:55
a distribute renews bank
78:57
we talked about putting it but it will look at again at the layout of that
79:01
teach about places that are still symbol indicating that they are by subscription
79:05
what we do right now is that we've made she went about page which does indicate
79:09
that that various terms of access for those materials and also if you were to
79:15
find time through our catalog or worldcat individual title in those
79:18
collections of course your user would reach in authentication requested if
79:23
they were not subscriber
79:26
fifty three this is just nothing simple so they're not buying became at that
79:30
level of access
79:31
all the rest of the things listed on the chisels collections page are open
79:35
accessible to omp open concerts available
79:40
and would like to point out that open
79:44
yarnell
79:46
for those details
79:49
and ham
79:52
did
79:58
any additional questions
80:01
the
80:06
silent majority
80:08
which is perfectly acceptable i think that we've had a
80:13
lot of productive discussion here com
80:15
in fact that we've we based our presentation on a lot of suggestions
80:18
from our members of our ministry
80:20
what they want to know more about
80:21
it's a good opportunity i think for us to be able to
80:25
expanded at some length about projects that were we're undertaking
80:29
and to check in with you to make sure that we're or meeting your expectations
