Alternate Digital Access Points: An Experiment with Providing Access to Archival Video through a Repository and YouTube Poster session Anaheim Convention Center
Exhibit Hall Poster Area Table 17
Description :

In 2010, I undertook a project to help a scholar in Department of Film and Media at Kansas provide online access to his research data, hundreds of video interviews he conducted over the last 30 years with major actors, directors, musicians, and entertainers. Using our digital repository, KU Scholarworks, built on Dspace, the videos were converted to appropriate formats and uploaded under a creative commons license. In 2011, after over 100 videos had been uploaded to the repository, I experimented with placing a subset of 34 videos on YouTube in order to compare the usage statistics that Dspace generated against those of YouTube. I was sure we were missing an audience but wanted to have some idea of its size. Both resources are discoverable through searching Google. However the smaller set of 34 videos on YouTube has received over 100,000 views compared with only a few thousand for the current set of over 150 videos in the repository. These results seem to indicate that making this resource widely available means providing access and ensuring discoverability through multiple channels and methods. Neglecting to provide multiple access channels, particularly for media, may deny thousands the chance to discover materials.

Have I Got a Story for You! Poster session Anaheim Convention Center
Exhibit Hall Poster Area Table 9
Description :

The Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division (NAWCWD) Scientific & Technical Library at China Lake, CA began presenting storytelling programs in 2004. The staff produced and videotaped the earliest programs with nothing but enthusiasm - no extra funding and no extra staffing. With 24 successful programs completed, the team enjoys sharing their lessons learned and telling stories about their storytelling experiences. The programs were designed to improve organizational communication and knowledge capture, but they proved valuable in many other ways. The library gained networking partners, marketed library services, and the staff learned new skills. The programs enhanced the reputation of the library as an asset to the organization. Program topics have covered weapons development, wartime missions in Kosovo and Vietnam, creating tethers for the Mars Exploration Rover, local archaeology, and Indian legends from local tribes. Evaluation methods have included feedback forms, observation, interviews, and recognition from upper management. This poster session will include a video montage of great moments from past programs, marketing materials, lessons learned, and instructions for embarking on a similar type of program.

Conversation Starters: Webscraping on a Shoestring with No I.T. Support: Libraries Preserving Access to Born-digital Government Information Program Anaheim Convention Center
208A
Description :

Libraries have long served as an access point for researching government information. Libraries in the Federal Depository Library Program are expressly tasked with this responsibility. Libraries also provide access to state and local government information.

More and more government documents appear online only, with no print version available. These documents can be quickly and easily accessed online. But, just as easily, these documents can disappear when an agency is restructured, a new official removes the documents from view, or the agency removes outdated material.

How can libraries ensure access to these born-digital materials? What if an agency is uncooperative or understaffed and cannot provide the library with the needed files?

The Florida State University College of Law Research Center (Research Center) faces similar barriers to other libraries. Staff with expertise in government documents do not have computer programming or strong technological expertise. Information Technology (IT) support is provided outside the library, and the library has limited access to staff who can write computer programs or work with the back end of databases. Nevertheless, there is a need to capture and preserve online government information which is here today, but may be gone tomorrow.

Using simple tools which do not require customization and can be used by nontechnical staff who are comfortable using Excel, the Research Center has “scraped” or mass downloaded thousands of government documents and harvested the metadata from state government websites.

This presentation will demonstrate simple tools and concepts which will allow other libraries and attendees to begin to collect and archive born-digital documents and metadata. Emphasis will be on tips and tricks to work with large numbers of files and large metadata sets at once, but within the constraints of familiar computer tools such as web-browsers and Excel.

Catching the Wave: Using a Milestone to Reach New Audiences Poster session Anaheim Convention Center
Exhibit Hall Poster Area Table 19
Description :

Throughout Pepperdine University's 75th anniversary year, the University Libraries have supported efforts to celebrate and promote the university's heritage. The special collections department has moved beyond the typical borders of the library and reached into all areas of university life, becoming a key player in these initiatives. The department has planned events, contributed to displays, developed new physical and digital collections, and provided materials for publications and media productions. These efforts have fostered partnerships with various departments across campus, greatly increasing the visibility and use of the special collections. In this poster, the presenters will utilize photographs, screenshots, and charts to showcase the various initiatives librarians developed and contributed to the celebration. They will share a short anniversary video that incorporates newly digitized still and moving images from the archives. The presentation will also touch on methods for evaluating the success of anniversary initiatives, such as usage statistics and collection growth. After attending the session, participants will be inspired to identify milestones in their own communities and institutions that will benefit through the use of archival materials and library resources. They will have concrete ideas for leveraging resources, utilizing technology, developing collections, and reaching a wider audience during milestone celebrations.

“Editing and Embedding Audio-Visual Metadata with MetaEdit”
Presented by Chris Lacinak
President, AudioVisual Preservation Solutions

Over the past three years the Federal Agencies Digitization Guidelines Initiative (FADGI) has been working on several projects related to audio-visual technical metadata. Two recent efforts have resulted in metadata recommendations and free, open-source applications, AVI MetaEdit and BWF MetaEdit, for embedding, editing and exporting metadata within AVI (video) and BWF (audio) files. FADGI has engaged Chris Lacinak, the presenter for this session, and his colleagues at AudioVisual Preservation Solutions to support the effort, including coding the applications. Chris will review the metadata recommendations and demonstrate the applications, walking the audience through use-cases to help assess the applicability of these applications for use in their own organizations.

Digital Preservation Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Hyatt Regency Orange County
Pacific Room
Description :

"Web-based digital preservation practice: It’s not just for web pages anymore."

A: Collecting Born-Digital Materials from the Web: It’s a CINCH!

Since August 2011, thanks to an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Sparks! Ignition grant, staff from the State Library of North Carolina in conjunction with staff from the North Carolina Libraries for Virtual Education (NCLIVE) have been developing the CINCH tool, which Captures, INgests, and CHecksums records the Library is legislatively mandated to maintain. This tool incorporates a capture utility and existing digital preservation technologies to create a more-automated workflow for capturing online files for preservation and access. This presentation will describe the tool’s development, functionality, and projected use.

Lisa Gregory works as Digital Projects Liaison in the Digital Information Management Program at the State Library of North Carolina. She currently manages one of the State Library’s off-site digitization project, works with interface design and usability, and participates in research and development of digital preservation tools and workflows.

B. The Web is a Mess: or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Web Archiving

Web Archiving: While most libraries put a great deal of effort into establishing a dynamic and engaging web presence for their institution, many are not currently preserving their own web presence or web content related to their institution's mission or collecting policies. This session will discuss the importance of web archiving and provide use cases, discuss best practices, lessons learned, challenges and successes and provide an overview of Archive-It, a web archiving service.

Lori Donovan is a Partner Specialist at the Internet Archive helping libraries, archives and othercultural institutions archive the web. Lori has a Masters of Science in Information from the University of Michigan specializing in Archives and Digital Preservation.

C. Digital Preservation and Dynamic Reference: Preserving living references, databases, and other “Book-like Objects”

In an era where the lines between an ebook and a database are increasingly blurred and online learning platforms incorporate gaming or virtual world elements, the question of how to preserve such complex works is more urgent than ever. What is being done now to preserve such content? What are the key question that publishers and libraries ought to be asking? What precisely should we be trying to preserve? Contribute your voice to this essential discussion to frame the preservation policies of the near future.

Dr. Heather Ruland Staines is Senior Manager eOperations for Springer. She manages the global preservation policies for both Springer and BioMed Central. She is currently Publisher Co-Chair of CLOCKSS and Chair of the ALCTS CRS Holdings Information Committee. She was also recently elected to serve on the Board of the Society for Scholarly Publishers.
