Transforming Library Metadata with XSLT - 14 May 2014 Taught by experienced XML/XSLT instructors and developers Matthew Gibson, director of digital initiatives at the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities at the University of Virginia, and Christine Ruotolo, digital services manager for humanities and social sciences at the University of Virginia Library, this three-day workshop will explore XSLT with a specific focus on the role of XSLT in digital library projects and an emphasis on practical tasks such as metadata crosswalking. The workshop will be a mix of lecture and hands-on demonstration and experimentation. Lectures, exercises, and projects will allow participants to gain experience using some of the more powerful components of XSLT 1.0 and 2.0. This workshop is designed for information professionals who have a good understanding of XML and work with it frequently. While some understanding of and experience with XSLT is a plus, this is not a requirement.
ALPSP Training Course:Project Management for Publishing - 21 May 2014 Projects are fundamental to all publishing organisations. Everyone gets involved in them. They may involve developing new products, new processes and systems, adopting new technologies, reaching new markets, acquiring new business, selecting new suppliers or improving existing processes. Projects are also challenging and often fail to achieve the desired results. This course provides a template and many supporting tools that can be applied to all projects, large or small, to help ensure successful outcomes. It has a strong emphasis on getting things right at the outset because this is where most problems with projects arise.
The course tutors are practising project managers with a wealth of experience from the publishing sector. The programme is highly practical and includes break-out sessions using real project scenarios provided by delegates as well as providing publishing case studies as examples of what works and what doesn't. It provides an excellent introduction for those new to taking responsibility for projects as well as a great refresher for those facing new project challenges. (full day)
ALPSP Webinar: Implementing Creative Commons licences - 22 May 2014 With RCUK's adoption of its new Open Access policy, and with similar policy moves being considered by other research funding bodies around the world, Creative Commons licences are becoming routine business for scholarly publishing. Not all publishers will have the resources and expertise to easily accommodate CC licences into their workflows, and many publishers will be wondering what implications the adoption of CC licences has for the relationship with their authors. This webinar is intended to provide a brief, practical overview of what CC licences are, how they can be implemented by publishers, and how authors are likely to respond to them. It will draw on the experience of publishers who have already implemented CC licences into their systems and workflows, and on a recent large-scale author survey. It will also look at how CC licences can be used with third-party material, such as images and figures that the author is reusing from another source.
