US Western Sydney University extends its digital textbook program with ProQuest - 19 Apr 2019

Western Sydney University (WSU) has extended its partnership with ProQuest to offset one major piece of that cost – textbooks.

Through WSU’s digital textbook program, all 10,000 first-year students at the university’s 10 teaching campuses located across the Western Sydney region in Australia will gain access to textbooks through Ebook Central, ProQuest’s ebook platform. More than 200 titles from 60 leading academic publishers are available electronically at no-cost to students via the WSU library.

In addition to being no-cost for students, the digital textbooks offer distinct advantages over hard copy materials. They allow for anytime, anywhere access to classroom materials – they can be read online or downloaded onto the students’ and faculty members’ preferred devices, including their smartphones and tablets. Users can search textbooks instantly for keywords, phrases and concepts, eliminating time spent hunting for content. As in a physical book, they can highlight, cite and annotate directly in each text. In addition, the WSU library uses reading lists from the Leganto™ coursepack service so students can link directly to the titles they need from course syllabi.

US ARL white paper on Wikidata brings to light use of open knowledge in scholarly communication, special collections - 19 Apr 2019

In a new Association of Research Libraries (ARL) white paper, a task force of expert Wikidata users recommend a variety of ways for librarians to use the open knowledge base in advancing global discovery of their collections, faculty, and institutions.

Librarians are using Wikidata’s structured data about people, topics, concepts, and objects to populate open source faculty profiling systems, to enhance bibliographic records in online catalogues, and to collaborate with communities on meaningful, culturally relevant, descriptive metadata for special collections and archives. The white paper, circulated for public comment in fall 2018, contains examples of Wikidata applications, screenshots, and recommendations for involvement on an individual or organisational level.

Beyond the task force, many library professionals from within and outside the Wikimedia community contributed to the white paper in draft form, offering a productive mix of enthusiasm and skepticism that improved the final product. ARL convened the task force and wrote this white paper to inform its membership about GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, and museums) activity in Wikidata and to highlight opportunities for research library involvement, particularly in community-based collections, community-owned infrastructure, and collective collections. Many in the international research community, including in libraries, are focused on community-owned infrastructure and robust metadata to facilitate open scholarship practices, and this paper takes a close look at Wikidata through that lens—as a public good worthy of examination and support.

US Emerald Publishing and liblynx partner to develop new Emerald Insight digital research platform - 19 Apr 2019

Academic publisher Emerald Publishing has partnered with the identity and access management specialists LibLynx to develop their new Emerald Insight digital research platform. LibLynx will be powering authentication and identity management across a broad range of use cases as well as providing COUNTER-compliant reporting.

Emerald’s overriding goal was to make discovery easier and more enjoyable and they recognised that the broad range of authentication technologies and business models they needed to support, covering both paid and open access content, had a major impact on ease of access. Emerald wanted a unifying solution that could simplify their architecture while still delivering the flexibility needed to optimise for usability.

Emerald also needed a usage reporting solution that was compliant with the latest COUNTER reporting code of practice, Release 5, and easily integrated into their new platform.

LibLynx’s authentication API provides Emerald with a standardised method for confirming a user’s identity and/or institutional affiliation that is independent of customer type, platform technology, and the authentication methods required. A suite of supporting tools make it easy for Emerald’s existing customer and rights management systems to seamlessly integrate into LibLynx, allowing for high levels of automation and simplifying customer support workflows.

LibLynx’s plug and play COUNTER widget enables Emerald to easily embed on-demand and real-time COUNTER-compliant reporting into the new platform, giving customers the flexibility to view reports online, download files, or automate ingestion via a SUSHI feed.

The new Emerald Insight digital research platform replaces an existing site hosted on Atypon’s Literatum platform. LibLynx began working on the implementation in late 2017, working closely with Emerald’s project team and their software development partners, 67 Bricks. Migration to the new platform will happen by July 2019.

US Duke University Press announces Dean Smith as its next Director - 19 Apr 2019

Duke University Press has announced Dean Smith, the director of Cornell University Press, as its new director.

Smith succeeds Steve Cohn, who is retiring at the end of June. Cohn has been at Duke University Press since 1984, and has served as director since 1993. Smith will start in his new position beginning July 1.

Each year Duke University Press publishes about 140 new books, almost 60 journals and multiple digital collections that share the ideas of progressive thinkers and support emerging and vital fields of scholarship across the humanities and interpretive social sciences. It is also well known for its mathematics journals, sophisticated graphic design and integration of technology platforms.

Since Smith became director of Cornell University Press in 2015, the press has expanded its title output from 100 to 150 titles per year, increased its digital publishing footprint from 350 to more than 3,000 eBooks, and published 150 open access texts on the Cornell Open website.

During his 30-year publishing career, Smith has helped lead all aspects of the transition from print-based publications to more easily accessible web-based digital editions. This includes a key role in reimagining Project Muse, a pivotal digital platform for humanities scholarship, to include eBooks and journals together. He has a wealth of experience in book and journal acquisitions, digital platform development, financial management, global business development and strategic planning, and has held such roles as journal publisher, director of electronic publishing, vice president of sales and marketing as well as press director.
