January Webinar: From ILS to Repository and Back: Data Interoperability

NISO's monthly webinar for January 2010 will be “From ILS to Repository
and Back: Data Interoperability.” The webinar will take place on
Wednesday, January 13, 2010 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. (Eastern time).

While institutional repository (IR) systems are meant to focus on the
storage of digital objects, most repositories contain not only objects,
but also metadata about those items. One of the main functions of library
systems is to help facilitate the discovery of items and content using
metadata. Where is the line between IR systems and the discovery and
management tools the libraries use to manage their collections? What are
some strategies that libraries can employ to integrate these systems? Is
anyone having success?

As libraries increasingly become the home to special digital collections
and scanned materials, finding simple ways to exchange information and
ensure discoverability of IR content will be critical to efficient
management of both systems. This webinar will provide attendees with an
overview of recent research in this topic as well as real-world examples
from organizations who are working toward interoperability.

Speakers and topics for the webinar are:

-- Kathleen Menzies (Researcher Centre for Digital Library Research,
University of Strathclyde), OCRIS: Online Catalogue and Repository
Interoperability Study – Funded by the JISC Scholarly Communications
Group, OCRIS—the Online Catalogue and Repository Interoperability
Study—examined the interoperability of LMSs, IRs and other administrative
systems in operation within UK universities. The project team produced
extensive recommendations for improving the visibility and usefulness of
intellectual assets and associated data by allowing central, and rapidly
developing, information systems to interoperate. The findings of the OCRIS
project will be presented followed by a discussion of their implications
and how they relate to the wider context.

-- Sarah Shreeves (IDEALS Coordinator, Scholarly Commons Coordinator
University Library, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), IDEALS
repository at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign – IDEALS is
the digital repository for research and scholarship—including published
and unpublished papers, datasets, video, and audio—produced at the
University of Illinois. In October 2009, the IDEALS repository surpassed
its one millionth download.

February Webinar: What It Takes To Make It Last: E-Resources Preservation

Thirty years into the Digital Revolution, we are still grappling with how
best to preserve electronic content. Whether born digitally or the
electronic version of analog content, electronic resources are relied upon
more and more, and their long-term usability must be ensured. NISO's
February webinar to be held February 10, 2010 from 1:00 - 2:30 p.m.
(Eastern time) will address “What It Takes to Make It Last: E-Resources
Preservation.” This webinar will provide attendees with an overview of
current digital preservation issues and standards and an example of a
working collaborative digital repository.

Priscilla Caplan, Assistant Director, Florida Center for Library
Automation will provide an introduction to e-preservation and provide a
closer look at the PREMIS (PREservation Metadata: Implementation
Strategies) Data Dictionary standard.

Jeremy York, Assistant Librarian, University of Michigan Library, will
discuss the work underway by HathiTrust to build and preserve a
comprehensive and cooperative digital library to archive and share
electronic resources. The repository already contains over 195 terabytes
of information.
