  1. Peering Outward: Data Curation Services in Academic Libraries and Scientific Data Publishing [Download]

    Title: Peering Outward: Data Curation Services in Academic Libraries and Scientific Data Publishing
    Depositor: Patricia M Hswe
    Creator:
    • Hswe, Patricia
    Description: Data curation services in libraries are poised to make strides in science data publishing. A chief objective in data curation is ensuring that data are shareable. To provide curation services for research data is, in part, to foster channels of access to them, such as through citation and publication. This chapter teases out the synergy between publishing services and data curation services in libraries. It reports on the current status of each type of service, providing context and drawing out comparisons between library publishing and data publishing. The complications surrounding peer review of data sets are also examined. Such background sets the stage for assessing the state of data publishing in the sciences by looking in brief at data policies currently enacted by journal publishers for associating articles with data sets, data repositories that publishers and researchers use for linking data with publications, and the genres of the data journal and the data paper. It also captures briefly what some programs and services in publishing and data curation at academic libraries are currently accomplishing in data publishing. As the chapter suggests, the paradigm for publication of data in the sciences seems always to be shifting. The goal, however, is to lay a foundation for understanding scientific data publishing, as well as the role that data curation services in libraries can play in it.

  3. Hybrid and Fluid by Design: Collective Capacity Building for the Digital Humanities at Penn State [Download]

    Title: Hybrid and Fluid by Design: Collective Capacity Building for the Digital Humanities at Penn State

    Description: This presentation will detail the ways in which The Pennsylvania State University (Penn State) Libraries have implemented new organizational collaborations, departmental models, and positions for advancing a rich program of digital scholarship services, with particular attention to support for the digital humanities (DH). One example is the department of Publishing and Curation Services (PCS). In developing a digital scholarship services program that mindfully engages participation from liaison librarians, PCS has taken a three-pronged approach: it is building capacity and depth for multidisciplinary, cohesive support and collaboration in data curation, scholarly publishing, and digital projects. A key programmatic area for the university, the department, and the libraries has been DH, in which humanities librarians at Penn State have been strategically active. A variety of funding, partnership, and hiring strategies continue to build growth and commitment in DH. These include the libraries’ alliance with the College of Liberal Arts in the university’s “Humanities in a Digital Age” initiative, a partnership that created the new, jointly funded position of Digital Humanities Research Designer (DHRD). The DHRD reports to PCS yet intentionally works outward, in collaboration with liaison librarians and technologists, and thus across organizational lines and structures in the libraries and at the university as a whole. The permeable boundaries of PCS as an “undepartment” kind of department translate to those of the positions it engages, like the DHRD, to achieve its programmatic and service goals, including revisiting and revising approaches to technology and other infrastructure support. A cornerstone of this project briefing will be an overview of the kinds of collaborations, both scholarly and pedagogical, in which the DHRD is engaged within the College of Liberal Arts community. They model DH project development as hybrid, inclusive, and iterative. The presentation will outline how the DHRD and liaison librarians partner with learners, both student and faculty, as collaborators, so that projects become pedagogical mechanisms as much as scholarly objectives, and how this model feeds into a community-of-praxis approach, toward the development of a sustainable DH infrastructure. The presentation will demonstrate how these activities are informing a collective, “de-siloized” understanding of services for DH.

    Description: This poster describes a project funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Science (IMLS) to extend a data curation education curriculum to include education and training in humanities data curation. It makes the case that the humanities are increasingly steeped in data collection and analysis and thus in need of programmatic attention to the lifecycle management of such data.

  10. Wayfinding: A Short Literature Review [Download]

    Title: Wayfinding: A Short Literature Review
    Depositor: Patricia M Hswe
    Creator:

    Description: Since its coinage by Kevin Lynch in his 1960 book, The Image of the City, wayfinding has been investigated at length in fields such as architecture, computer science (specifically human-computer interaction [HCI]), consumer economics, and environmental psychology: the behavior is broken down into observable activities, and methodologies such as surveys, field experiments, and brief interviews—all of which measure how well or how poorly people find their way—are applied. This brief literature review considers research done on wayfinding in the real world, on the Web, and in virtual environments (VEs). Prefaced by a discussion of the intrinsic semantics of the term (to trace its likely original connotation), the review addresses the major contributions on wayfinding to LIS, followed by a survey of some of the studies done in other fields, in an effort to begin to understand how to orient the subject for more extensive research in LIS. (This paper was written for LIS503: Use and Users of Information, taught by Professor Carole L. Palmer, in Spring 2006 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.)
