RLUK_Mike: RT @karencoyle: I sure hope new bib framework is more than MARC as linked data. http://t.co/HCiHWTjN (pptx)
RLUK_David: Half-life argument has no basis in evidence. No proof of correlation between half-life and journal cancellations #OA
RLUK_David: But the #OA price pays for online - if you want print then you pay for print. Not a good anti-OA argument
RLUK_David: Claim is being made on Radio 3 that UCL pays over £1 million per year to Elsevier for ScienceDirect #OA
RLUK_David: and they've got the definition of green #OA wrong already - embargoes are not part of green, they are a compromise to appease publishers!
RLUK_David: Lots of food for thought - interview with Jan Velterop http://t.co/K1BUUpMj My fear is that we create deals that are 'too big to fail' #OA
RLUK_David: Elsevier APCs for SCOAP3 much lower than their standard hybrid APCs http://t.co/EWIFwAQA Power of strong green #OA in particle physics?
RLUK_David: Official launch of the SCOAP3 initiative to provide #OA to particle physics articles - http://t.co/WCf27WeI
RLUK_David: 4th LIBER Collection Security Conf to be held on Friday 23 Nov '12 at the Dutch National Library, The Hague - http://t.co/yj6sVrMm
RLUK_David: Excellent meeting with @rolykeating and Caroline Brazier at BL today. Lots to think about.
RLUK_Mike: RT @LSELibrary: We are very proud to share our vision for the Women's Library @ LSE. See http://t.co/9KQGbV0f #LSE
RLUK_David: RT @Stephen_Curry: @SciCommForum Thanks for all your hard work in organising #icoa debate. You guys are a real credit to @imperialcollege
RLUK_David: @MikeTaylor @AmSciForum @Protohedgehog Mark sounds firm that they will not tweak the policy at this stage - unfortunately
RLUK_David: RLUK and SCONUL respond to stereotypical and rather dated view of libraries in @timeshighered - http://t.co/wluCECXY & http://t.co/kwm5k02k
RLUK_David: @simonjbains I'm not at the Westminster briefing but @ChrisBanks is. Don't know the twitter rules for the event
RLUK_David: There appear to be at least three #OA events in London today - #research12 #icoa and http://t.co/xTR3UHzI

RLUK_David: Last week Knowledge Exchange issued important report on Business planning required to achieve sustainable #OA services http://t.co/j41TKzyE
RLUK_David: @kevingashley Family legend has it that my grandfather helped pull part of the transatlantic cable ashore at Oban
RLUK_David: @ostephens Although there used to be probs with ISI matching up citation to old name with the new name - but that may be fixed now
RLUK_David: @ostephens Not sure if a legal issue. With a name change it is the 'same' journal as before. So, IF works in same way as if no name change
RLUK_David: @ostephens For a publisher a name change allows you to carry existing subscribers over. New journals have to start from scratch
RLUK_David: Popping up to the BL to catch the Writing Britain exhibition before it closes tomorrow - http://t.co/fFBwtDYO
RL_UK: We have launched a new blog for our Redefining the Research Library Model (RRLM) strategic strand: http://t.co/XB2jRXAl

RLUK_David: @EndoMetabPub Space at a conference is a rivalrous commodity, access to online papers is not. Completely different models.
RLUK_David: @EndoMetabPub Why should it be? (Don't bother answering - I do realise that it was a 'humorous' poke against #OA)
RLUK_David: Registration is open for the RLUK Conference in Newcastle. Open to all , not just RLUK members - http://t.co/w6F9dRRv
RLUK_David: Congratulations to Elliott Shore who'll become the ARL Executive Director from the start of next year - http://t.co/lqZDvI5w

RLUK_Mike: RT @ErikaDelbecque: Early printed books cataloguer vacancy at the British Library! #specialcollections #jobs http://t.co/kFbFh8Qn
RLUK_Mike: @PatParslow Thanks for the insights - in that case, creeping overcomplexity may make the table easier than I thought!
RLUK_Mike: @PatParslow It's certainly not easy to navigate - but we haven't I think yet adopted 4 e.g. 'Associate Professor', there are basic diffs(?)
RLUK_Mike: @PatParslow Yes, indeed it's hardly uniform here, so perhaps we need to include all local cognates on each side of any table?
RLUK_Mike: Am looking for a table or any recognized piece of recent research that gives an equivalence of academic title in US & UK. Help appreciated!

RLUK_Mike: MT @Darklecat: I've written my blog about #CIG12 Smug tweaking, shrinking cats & corridor of uncertainty. http://t.co/n9qm4143 #ukdiscovery
RLUK_David: @stevehit We need to lobby where we can, speak out where we see problems. We should all take responsibility for getting it right
RLUK_David: @bckaemper Interesting model - but again, connection needed between the decision of where to publish and the decision of how much to spend!
RLUK_Mike: MT @KarenBrayshaw: #rbscg12 Sad to leave such an interesting and enjoyable conference -Well done Amanda, Lucy, and Stewart <-utterly agree!
RLUK_David: @bckaemper Upper limit for APCs interesting. But what if journal offers service that is genuinely worth more than upper limit?
RLUK_David: @stevehit 'We' as in academic community - researchers, funders, administrators, librarians, politicians, etc. 'Duty' as in dictionary!
RLUK_David: I put a few thoughts on #OA (together with a major fear) in a guest editorial for UKSG eNews - http://t.co/GbOouiRb

RLUK_David: Saddened that Oxford and Cambridge Uni Presses continue to pursue this case in the States - http://t.co/qCmhn0yP
RLUK_Mike: @alastairdunning Yes, as well as ensuring that we simply cover more collections absolutely, across all sectors #ukdiscovery #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: MT @Girlinthe: #rbscg12 folk who want 2 know > about cataloguing can do worse than following @ostephens, 2 & looking at http://t.co/1XJmu8EU
RLUK_Mike: It's obvious that #ukdiscovery needs more active policy around scaling up collections aggregation as much as advising on open data #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: RT @Girlinthe: Cristina Dondi from CERL points out that #cataloguing is fundamental, but scholars also need better retrieval tools. #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: AW citing #Copac as major discovery tool 4 UK academics; 4 those @ #rbscg12 whose collections are not there, let me know interest! #rbscg12

RLUK_Mike: Aacademics are now concerned by the question of impact under REF14, especially around public enagement: need to demonstrate change #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Academics have 4 roles: research, teaching, administration, and now public engagement - librarians need to help with all 4 #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Anne Welsh, Lecturer in Library & Information Studies, UCL: What do Academics Want? #rbscg12 [asking us to be cautious what we tweet!]
RLUK_Mike: Plain that SR & CF take real pleasure in creating relationships w\ individuals; not about mining networks; warmth not calculation #rbscg12

RLUK_Mike: RT @speccollbrad: I found major course @mgmtcentre TRANSFORMED my understanding of fundraising - recomm if you can #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: CF Surprising lack of knowledge on part of alumni that college library even existed: message, don't assume, communicate presence! #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: RT @CILIPRareBooks: #rbscg12 Now Christine Ferdinand of Magdalen on how she works with SR on #fundraising
RLUK_Mike: RT @bluenettle: Librarians are best placed to articulate the library's vision to potential donors and what impact money will have on tha ...
RLUK_Mike: SR There's a long, long lead-in time: might take 18 months to 2 years between approach to alumni and getting donation. Factor in. #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: SR Be selective about who you approach for what: get alumni to fund fellowships, trusts to underwrite collections #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: SR v. interesting distinction between funding requirement and fundraising one: some things simply won't be attractive; be realistic #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: SR: the skills you do need: good communicator, being open to gentle coaching as to what to say, compelling writing style #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: RT @CILIPRareBooks: SR #rbscg12 Best fundraiser in #oxford is Sarah Thomas of Bodleian - no FR qualifs but still v effective. Secret is ...
RLUK_Mike: SR: Being a fundraiser as a librarian does not obscure primary responsibility as curator: the essence is 2 build relationships #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Victoria Steele text that SR has cited, Of Sherpas and Mountain Climbers, http://t.co/7D6iVuVE (warning, slow link) #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: SR Not being involved in fundraising is a luxury few librarians can afford in the current climate #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: SR Also get interest of any developmental officers that you have, as much as you would try to excite benefactors #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: SR Outreach does not just increase coffers, it increases the size, scope & ambit of the institution itself as benefactors get role #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Giving potential benefactors direct access 2 treasures is good but intellectual engagement is better & crucial to appeal #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: RT @CILIPRareBooks: SR #rbscg12 #speccolls have "glamour and exclusivity" missing from general libraries (more so than ever as print man ...
RLUK_Mike: SR argues that *all* those with responsibility for special collections need to be involved in raising funds through and with them #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Sean Rainey, Development Director, Magdalen College, Oxford- Fundraising for and with Special Collections #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: I have to say I really enjoyed Mark Nicholls presentational style and underpinning sensibility: a very urbane generosity of spirit #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Nicholls recognizes importance of creating a real sense of meritocracy even in an 'elite' institution, using lib. as outreach tool #rbscg12

RLUK_Mike: RT @CILIPRareBooks: MN #rbscg12 Decision-makers get primed by success and ready for next step. Example of retro cataloguing funding success
RLUK_Mike: A neat definition of advocacy: "communicating a few home truths to the powers that be" Nicholls #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Back in the Tweet-seat: Mark Nicholls, Fellow Librarian, St John’s College, Cambridge - MLA Designation & HLF Funding #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Also having students from different disciplines, eg computing can broaden the view librarians can have about presenting collections #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Interesting point made abt ethics of employing students and interns to crowdsource cataloguing; optimally it gives work experience #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: More than happy to speak to people about any of the #RLUK reports @speccollbrad mentioned, now or offline #rlukudc #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Just a taster from Hidden Collections report: nearly 80 libraries surveyed >13 million vols uncatalogued, 18.5% of total colls. #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Copac collections management project came out of #RLUK partnership work with JISC http://t.co/cHTOoK55 #rbscg12 #ukdiscovery
RLUK_Mike: MT @MartinNHW: following #rbscg12 & thinking @fairarchives good eg of how investment in a spec coll can pay off x10 in research/profile/cash
RLUK_Mike: @Girlinthe Thanks, a good deal of the concern for 20th C material came out of work with #BLPAC on preservation, esp. brittle paper #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: NB RLUK is interested in views from across all sectors, for the value of any collection can only b understood in a relational sense #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: RT @Girlinthe: AC Look out for two new reports: Hidden Collections & OCLC/RLUK Special Collections. And later the #rlukudc report. # ...
RLUK_Mike: UDCs also have a closer fit perhaps w\ what gives an institution its USP, describes a broader institutional story of collecting #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: A practical example, highlighted also by @richove, is 20th C printed material; much of what is special is held in main sequences #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: @speccollbrad explains the difference between 'unique and distinctive collections' and special collections #rbscg12 #rlukudc
RLUK_Mike: Next up, Alison Cullingford on #RLUK's Unique and Distinctive Collections project #rlukudc #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: OUI: looking 4 the levers of raw power 1 aspect but BL put the curatorial staff at the centre of its work w\ overseas collections #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: RT @amlibraries: Walking away from the American Chemical Society, SUNY Potsdam: http://t.co/zWPBjAHp
RLUK_Mike: OUI's narrative on finding the right representatives of other countries/institutions to work with says in effect - be tenacious! #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: OUI - special collections used in a cultural, ambassadorial role can be a significant projection of soft power #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: OUI - getting others to do work for you may reduce ostensible costs but it's difficult to estimate an associated value statement #rbscg12

RLUK_Mike: Other linguistic groups will be providing future financial support : yet signposting & description r anglocentric-need for change? #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Advocacy is at bottom about wielding power to compete for resources; if you win, others lose - need to be aware of this #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: RT @lukask: The IGeLU Linked Open Data Special Interest Group had a very constructive meeting with Ex Libris on the roadmap for collabor ...
RLUK_Mike: Oliver Urquhart Irvine, Head of British Library-Qatar Foundation Partnership - Advocacy at the British Library #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: @richove praises museums for the quality of their outreach work, especially with schools #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: OTOH much intrinsic value in spec collections: monetary value and less tangible but still important imperatives: research, identity #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Does the world need spec. collections? Risks 2: cataloguing and collections management, conservation, 20th century printed heritage #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: RT @CILIPRareBooks: RO #rbscg12 #crowdsourcing mentions wonderful Old Weather Project - ships logs for historic reliable climate data to ...
RLUK_Mike: RT @Girlinthe: RO recommends seeing the exhibitions area in the new @aberdeenunilib: http://t.co/5MULaY4y #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: From world-brotherhood to brand factories: special collections also have a concrete role to play in self-promotion and fund raising #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: @richove doing an excellent job of providing insightful, real-world uses and deployment of special collections as cultural bond #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: In that respect, exhibitions are proving to be an effective weapon in engendering interest in and care for institutions' kudos #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: New connections built up with new audiences can mean a mapping out of future support, moral and potentially financial #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: What can special collections do for institutions? It's about collecting and making visible the past output of research bodies #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Special collections can be a glue bringing academics from different institutions together, offering them unique opportunities #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Outreach to the public is not just an abstract adornment: there is real demand on part of ordinary people for special collections #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: @richove declares profession has never needed more diverse skills: outreach, marketing, communications: echoes #rlukudc study #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Yet as pressures mount, the consolidation of collections can demonstrate libraries' power of curation #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: @richove says a more profound analysis of the proportion of different funding sources over time would be very useful for sector #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Special collections now more than ever need to diversify their portfolio of funding streams - not just reliance on parent body #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Yet recent news about collections such as The Women's Library coming under threat perhaps signals a different more urgent challenge #rbscg12
RLUK_Mike: Justifying our special collections is not a new theme - we should be pretty good at it by now! @richove #rbscg12

RLUK_Mike: RT @speccollbrad: Hard at work on #rluk #oclc survey - I'm commenting on #borndigital bit - well, I like a challenge!
RLUK_Mike: David Prosser: some key themes - the necessity not just the choice of collaboration; advocacy; evidence (metadata & case studies) #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Would a next generation solution be 2 rapidly digitize title pages & use visual pattern recognition 2 deduplicate our collections? #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: How should we take the #rluksafe work forward: can we expect a top-down model or are we the community the likely operative force here?
RLUK_Mike: One of the advantages of #rluksafe has been the bringing together of a wide variety of people w\ different skills & perspectives #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: RLUK should examine different collection care models within its member libraries; need to investigate the last copy issue closely #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: After loss of MLA, could RLUK step into the leadership role in this area of preservation and collection management? #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Feedback from breakout sessions: to a large extent comments devolve on extending #UKRR foundation 2 monographs & using Copac tools #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: RT @speccollbrad: How can we know which colls are unique? I blogged! #copac #rlukudc #rluksafe http://t.co/fHLduxOl @copac @rluk_Mike
RLUK_Mike: Great summary of the major questions around collection care and collection management from Chris Banks #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Boldness of coll.care staff also emerging as theme today, boldness that's accepted because conservators' responsibility recognized #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Chris Banks has menationed several times the need 4 high quality, highly granular metadata regarding all collections #ukdiscovery #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: We have the opportunity for community ownership of the problems, e.g. storage, & 2 engage w\ publishers to improve digital quality #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Through a collaborative collection strategy we have the opportunity 2 realize the value of the unique in our own local collections #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: We have learned an incredible amount in terms of business cases for holding a national collection through #UKRR #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: For traditional conservation, conservators feel increasingly squeezed; but other new studios have come into being #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: The moves towards the distributed national research collection were started in times of plenty; solutions now in times of dearth #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: RT @lorcanD: TV report on future of Public libraries and new library in B'ham UK - to be biggest in Europe http://t.co/lARMRvae
RLUK_Mike: Final presentation: Chris Banks, University of Aberdeen: Above our heads: preserving the national collection #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Specifically regarding preservation, #Copac tools will help us precisely & confidently retain last copies 4 nat. research coll. #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Or, once we have identified what we no longer need locally, what mechanisms do we need to assist the transfer of material? #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Preservation focus: once we have evidence from #Copac data, how can we help libraries co-ordinate their actions around retention? #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: The tool allows a library 2 assess its strengths in given subject/collection: "How do my collections fit into national picture?" #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Major advance sought: mass, automated processing of 100s and 1000s of items at a time, rather than manual item-per-item checking #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Key areas: is any item widely held or rare? Assessing collection strengths within national context, setting preservation status #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Aims of project: develop tools to improve collection management decisions, with focus on retention, disposal and redistribution #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Next up: Michael Emly, University of Leeds, Informed decisions, the Copac Collection Management Tools project #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Collection management skills are vital but not everyone has them - how to we instil and support these in collection care staff? #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Reflections from Southampton: continuous communication with students and faculty, and good audit trail of consultation #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Over 40 years of collecting: 845m of book stock: 200m live teaching, 400m of research stock, 245m for discard or relocation #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Digitization opportunities arise from close and careful evaluation and audit of collections #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: RT @ostephens: Lots of interesting looking stuff under the #rluksafe tag (@joeyanne @laurajwilkinson @cjclib @damyantipatel relevant to ...
RLUK_Mike: Painstaking decisions: Store? UL Archive, Open shelves, discard, offer? In many cases, had to append a future review notice 2 item #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: With monographs: quality assessment of catalogues is imperative - dealing with monographs first requires retrospective conversion #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Other criteria: currently taught subjects - it is incredible how much subject stock turns out no longer to be attached to teaching #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Approach to periodicals at Southampton: where trusted e-surrogates available, reference made to UKRR or discard #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Chris Fowler: What are you doing when you throw things away? (or, "Space, the final frontier") #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Final message from Manchester: may seem easy 2 close collection care units as ring-fenced entities; but they can create real value #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: The word "investment" seems 2 figure a lot here: this is a good message 4 libraries that wnt 2 b ahead in terms of collection care #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: A lot of investment is being made in staff to support them to take on many more outward-facing and co-ordinating roles #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Manchester collection care also supports a large range of specifically academic-led projects, advising on funding for example #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: How does collection care fit into our digitization strategy? E.g. Golden Haggadah: coll. care can add 2 the narrative of objects #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: The new draft library strategy: big ask - "The Library everyone wants us to be"! #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: RT @gwallter: 'confident & outward looking' - good motto for preservation units #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Long-term preservation strategy of both born-digital and analogue. Publishing progress frequently also a significant element #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Innovation - how the work of collection care fits into collection management also a major factor #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Crucial to success of collection care: attracting committed and talented people - employing especially cross-site working #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Principles: the library will collaborate with academic colleagues regarding funding bids; extensive use of social media #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Back after the break: Caroline Checkley-Scott, University of Manchester: Changing times, changing strategies #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: What works well? Collaboration across service. Future trends: shrinkage of other physical colls. as spec. colls. concept changes #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: However, more internal funding shifted towards preservation activity. This has meant change in outlook 4 most main library staff #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: King's as a result changing from being preservation reactive 2 being proactive: still having to rely on external funding however #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: First steps in new strategy: an audit of all storage facilities at King's: created 1000 metres of suitable additional space #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Some initial decisions: not all collections will/should be preserved in long-term but items needing long-term care prioritized #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: King's moving away from focus on spec. colls. for conservation, project impetus and external funding: preservation mainstreamed #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Excellent summary of surrogates as preservation tool by Andrew Green. Now Katie Sambrook of King's: Preservation prioritization #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: An indication is closure of microfilm units across sector: digitization is the only way forward. The BL is doing this 4 newspapers #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: The answer 2 the question as 2 whether we can use digital surrogates 4 preservation: in Andrew Green's view it is a definite "Yes" #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: The most important question here is: 'What does my library strategy say on sustained use?' #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: The 3 Nat. Libs r now co-ordinating their resources 2 maintain single collection 4 epublications: could we extend this 2 analogue? #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Analysis of the surrogate may be more intensive than allowable regarding the original, & may reveal more information than latter #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: More interestingly still: can a surrogate be more than a surrogate? This is the 'transcendent question' of digitization. #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: @Girlinthe No problem! Glad it's of interest and many thanks for spreading the word! :) #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Digitisation can inflict damage, both directly thru the process but also by advertising the original, exposing it to more access #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Or perhaps prevent keep original but prevent further access. A further question is: does the surrogate actually harm original? #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: What do we do w\ the original if we do not preserve it ourselves? Options: recycle, destroy, repatriate, allow self-destruction? #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Even if we recognize intrinsic value, does it mean we have 2 preserve analogue necessarily? Must b careful but users wnt content! #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: What is the difference for the user between the original and the digital surrogate? What is the intrinsic value of the analogue? #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Hence we have to address the prospect in terms of parallel collecting of using the digital form as a surrogate for preservation #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: We currently face the prospect of collecting huge amounts of born digital material: we have no choice but 2 preserve this material #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Technical standards shouldn't be the benchmark as such: microfilm is heavily standards compliant but users "detest" it for access #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: We shld not use the word "preservation" we shld more accurately say "sustained use" -access is more persuasive in terms of funding #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Andrew Green says he has no expert knowledge of collection management or preservation - we don't believe him! #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Andrew Green - To what extent can you use digital surrogates as a preservation strategy? #rluksafe
RLUK_Mike: Andrew Green, National Library of Wales, says there are no answers 2 collection management issues other than the community's own #rluksafe

RLUK_Mike: In order to make the Copac collection management tools entirely valuable we need to increase hugely no of libraries in Copac #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: Clifford: in order to make the collection management tools more precise we need to address uncatalogued material #rlukmm11

RLUK_Mike: University of Huddersfield and Lincoln libraries referenced today as on the leading edge of resource discovery: challenge to RLUK? #rlukmm11

RLUK_Mike: RT @simonjbains: UK libraries have been saying they do mass digitisation in #OCLC survey. But they don't really. #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: 81% of RLUK libraries will not make even reproductions available to loan from special collections #rlukmm11 #rlukudc
RLUK_Mike: Preservation still a heavy part of survey feedback - how will this square with the #rlukudc brief which does not include it? #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: In RLUK libraries there are some 11 million volumes in special collections departments #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: Handling born-digital the top need in the RLUK response to question about where training was required #rlukmm11

RLUK_Mike: Andrew Green: we will be convening a group of curators to help with UDC #rlukudc #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: @ashley_sanders The RLUK cataloguing service essentially: but there may be a resource discovery view of that
RLUK_Mike: @simonjbains To put it succinctly, I'd say that we've had a system of sharing records but not 1 of shared cataloguing #ukdiscovery #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: @simonjbains Precisely there's too much of an institutional focus, that's the ideas behind the report
RLUK_Mike: @simonjbains Improve we will see that the ways in which we have had to encode in the past will change #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: @simonjbains Hoist by my own petard! I would say simply that this perfectionism is a symptom not a cause; as the means of interrogation
RLUK_Mike: The cultural issue of cataloguers' perfectionism as a barrier to change raised again: can't agree that this is the primary barrier #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: Ayris: It is inevitable that the future of shared discovery services is in the cloud #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: Paul Ayris: Libraries have problems in sourcing 20-30% of the bib records they need to reduce backlogs #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: @simonjbains @serodavid @ostephens Challenge is not abstract, it boils down to how we deal (perhaps) with a post-JISC environment #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: Paul Ayris looks at the impact on the role and profile of the library management system in a linked data environment #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: @simonjbains I feel there cld have been greater emphasis on the 2nd half of the presentation: metadata as expression of mission #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: RT @LibraryLizC: Ebooks will cause a ripple but must not be allowed to sink the ship (libraries) #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: The broader context is assessing the wider curatorial landscape , including learning objects and research data assets #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: David Kay: if we do not collectively adopt open data then pushing forward on #ukdiscovery will be very difficult #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: David Kay: How can libraries leverage their unique capacities 2 extend the scope of their responsibilities? (after Dan Greenstein) #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: David Kay: How do our researchers navigate our resources? Can Google do this or can we do scholarly curatorial expression better? #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: How do we take the projects from within #ukdiscovery and turn them into services of value to researchers? #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: David Kay: Our investment in metadata will be lacking in value unless it can be better connected #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: David Kay at #rlukmm11 on discovery - is there a better case for investing in better resource discovery?
RLUK_Mike: Break now at #rlukmm11 reconvening again at 1.30 (#rlukudc and redefining the research library meetings now!)
RLUK_Mike: Is there really going to be a solution to the lending question around ebooks and their licences? #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: Central procurement works both 4 publishers & institutions: could translate into a consortial model via groups of institutions #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: Is the consortium approach the way forward, in comparison with individual institutional deals? #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: It's possible that large-scale bundles, 'big deals' may work for ebooks: we should not necessarily shy away from the model here #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: Traditional models of lending and selling are severely disrupted for publishers by the ebooks format #rlukmm11
RLUK_Mike: RT @ChrisBanks: many congratulations to @MartinNHW and all at Sheffield: Times Higher Education University of the Year #loveHE

RLUK_Mike: Legacy - greater capacity for internal friendly challenging of what the library does, and transformative staff development #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Significant reductions in staff time came as a result, which ppl could employ for other support work; was greener, cheaper, faster #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Allow ppl 2 conduct KB process near 2 workplace, 4 access 2 their information; challenge current state, practise voicing views #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: The aim at Aberdeen in undertaking LEAN Kaizen was not to reduce roles or cut jobs but to reallocate staff time to do more #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: However, start with the management group because you will need the commitment to the process from the highest level #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Kaizen Blitz process to a large extent giving the staff at the frontline a voice to help you solve problems #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Final session: The Journey of a Book, Chris Banks, Aberdeen and Pat Browne LEAN Kaizen specialist #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: More case studies: eliminating duplication of effort in shared cataloguing, merging print & electronic management teams #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Some innovative example case studies: patron-driven acquisition, dynamic loan periods, use of student-only posts, & shelf-ready #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Core processes 2 b reviewed: Shelving, circulation & enquiry services; restructring staff 2 accommodate new services & space #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Data hosting is a delicate point: information held beyond UK is subject to different jurisdictions; cld be a potential problem #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Summary on Leeds self-service introduction: savings achieved, good customer experience, more refinement of staffing & procedures #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Leeds thinking about cross-site groups to help spread knowledge and new impetus for developments #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Moving from an enquiries team with uniform grading of staff to an enquiry service where different levels of staff get involved #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Impact on staffing at Leeds: staff in customer services reduced from 80 to 70 FTEs #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Significant reduction in the number of staff doing ILL has been achieved at Leeds though self-service #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Interestingly the language and notation of staff grading is a slight barrier to sharing experience and extrapolating from results #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Collective quality of RLUK database especially for retrospective cataloging higher than some commercial offerings #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Resulting from shelf-ready: staff felt that they were now delivering a better service, and users registered the same sentiment #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Biggest problem in implementing shelf-ready was around managing and linking data flows, as well as physical delivery of items #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Poor quality of metadata for electronic material is a very big issue #rluk_eff #ukdiscovery
RLUK_Mike: Cataloguing from perfection 2 good enough in context: moving highly specialised staff from doing store material to rare & unique #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: This review has resulted in a drop in quantity and an increase in quality of donation #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Started reviewing process by looking 1st at dealing w\ donations; moving away from just taking everything using lifecycle costs #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: What has helped: reviewing budgets (including #ASPI work) and analyzing workflows around management systems #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Barriers to change : long-established methods, low staff turnover, prior dominating processes, multiple and old Dewey schemes #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: In one case we found some 95k catalogue searches per month not successful, gave us the data needed 2 change. Evidence essential #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Stella Butler: we need 2 think beyond the library: we shouldn't just teach students 2 use our resources but also ones they need #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: RT @catrionafisher: David Prosser - what about institutional repositories and the library's role in promoting research outputs? #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Developing staff 2 move on if they wish: it is an issue for staff that they don't always have skills needed 2 develop themselves #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Now on 'Start': Need 2 start costing everything, doing business cases, forward & succession planning, developing staff 2 move on #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: On the "Continue" thread: still need to develop library staff, moves towards remote services, lobby academics, experimentation #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: The M&S model offers a very consistent experience ; also greater urgency in commercial sector perhaps 4 change #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: We need to make sure that all students and users feel as though they receive a personal service, whatever the transaction #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Tension perhaps being maintaining the student experience and closing departmental libraries? #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Stop local classification, stop all manual circulation, stop just-in-case training, stop departmental libraries (discuss!) #rluk_eff
RLUK_Mike: Lots of v. fresh & committed conversations now around making efficiencies in library processes following Lean Kaizen principles #rluk_eff

RLUK_Mike: Dunning's implication is that the imaginative use of APIs to digital content may change ways of doing research itself #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: APIs would also allow us 2 break down the service silos that have grown up around digital content, and build flexible routes to it #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Dunning: the conflation of content and interface constitutes the creators' view of content, not that of users necessarily #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: @ostephens It was - I really recommend that colleagues at #libeb11 and beyond look at the Open Bibliographic Guide http://t.co/fDjXGB81
RLUK_Mike: The JISC Open Bibliographic Data Guide designed to give practical upshots of different routes into making things open #liebeb11 #ukdiscovery
RLUK_Mike: Stephens: 'Open' is still very much a creed, a belief, a strategic aim rather than anything proven for majority as yet #libeb11 #ukdiscovery
RLUK_Mike: Stephens: there's a lack of evidence that other people will do better things with your metadata than you will #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: #RLUK referenced as being behind #JISC #Discovery initiative - RLUK indeed interested in making its huge metadata set more open #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: #libeb11 3rd session now, on reuse (metadata), first up Owen Stephens, on the JISC Open Bibliographic Data Guide
RLUK_Mike: Public Library Online: if shelf of just 10 books generates £62k a year for the publisher, why aren't libraries paid commission? #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Good to see licensed access for the wider population beyond HE via public libraries #liebeb11
RLUK_Mike: @alastairdunning I like the fact that BHL is also cross-sectoral as well as international, good co-operation between HE and museums #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Interesting, when I was last at this conference 2 years ago, there was informal support for microfilm; its merits are still evident #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Maria Sorjonen: Promoting access to in copyright newspapers through collaboration with the Finnish Copyright Society, Kopiosto #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Again the accent is on humanities researchers - there seems to a paucity of thinking about how to serve STEM, or if unable, why #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Balk: consortial network a very valuable proposition for external partners (vendors) when formulating a business model #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Jury seems to be out on methods to use to correct text: OCR, re-keying, pattern recognition - interesting no final assessment #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Change to programme at #libeb11 first on 2nd day, Hildelies Balk on IMPACT http://t.co/2Igf3Y8R
RLUK_Mike: @alastairdunning Didn't get feeling that your question was entirely understood; need more on search and presentation than content #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: @schambers3 Hi Sally - heard recently that Europeana will be taking library data and republishing as linked data: is this so? Great if case
RLUK_Mike: Looking at creating a sustainable domain-wide aggregating framework for library content in Europe #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: 2-year project, ending in December 2012, will add over 5 million digital objects to Europeana http://t.co/9Zb2rFGx #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Users asked for no pre-selection of material presented: users want 2 see everything and have the power to decide for themselves #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Evaluation methods on the users side include comparisons of digital libraries: this echoes Dobreva's plea for more DL benchmarking #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Zarndt presents a long list of requirements requirements but surely this is less about refining language than organizational nous? #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Zarndt presents a long list of requirements requirements...but surely this is less about refining language than organizational nous? libeb11
RLUK_Mike: So, what is the communicative fix? Simplicity is the ultimate key; value of prototypes and pilot batches #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: His view being that much if not most of what we understand about 'standard' things is filtered by misperceptions, leading 2 failure #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Formal bid compliance requirements seem to be outweighing clarity or exposition on technical or data acceptance ones #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Frederick Zarndt: Experience is the teacher of fools: project management lessons learned #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Excellent presentation by Milena Dobreva - both informative and usefully speculative #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: I'd like to hear more about Dobreva's use of eye-tracking methods to record how users interact with services #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Dobreva is making the important point that through overly formal evaluation techniques , users are also being put into silos #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Often we do not employ users 2 help design systems initially but only ask them at the end of process how happy or unhappy they are! #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Need 2 find ways of addressing individual user, not collections of users, and make a distinction between evaluation & usability #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Why again? 2 provide better services, help with information overflow, judge value and impact, to shape new business models #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Milena Dobreva: User studies in Digital Libraries: Models, Standards, Methods, Questions #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: @skreilly A few of us have pressed ahead with the invention of our own hashtag #libeb11 :)
RLUK_Mike: Next project Kuvatalkoot - extending this technique to images and articles, with the goal to give users an enriched experience #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: The first attempt at correcting OCR through gamification, dealing with fraktur: resulted in an impressive 99% level of correction #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Publishers want their material to be better used, and themselves seek and approve of crowdsourcing as a means of doing this #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Why? Several reasons given, such as volume of digitised content and better search but compelling for me: users want interaction #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Next up Majlis Bremer-Laamanen: Crowdsourcing as a way to make pictures visible for research #libeb11
RLUK_Mike: Technical challenges: changing concept of 'publication', 'enriched' publications, and still the problem of preservation
RLUK_Mike: User communities are not as neatly constituted as sectoral activities would suggest: need 2 go beyond the institutional view to serve users
RLUK_Mike: Funds from European level have become rarer since the economic crash: new route to more content public-private initiatives
RLUK_Mike: Welcome now from Dr. Bas Savenije. One of the first challenges is to improve access: increase content, embed, serve communities, and more OA
RLUK_Mike: Just settling in to the 3rd Liber-Eblida Workshop on the digitization of library materials. Hashtag anyone?

RLUK_Mike: #jiscres11 I am not sure about employing 'moralising arguments in relation to institutional culture, 'raising awareness' etc. Surely we
RLUK_Mike: #jiscres11 Schuerer: Doesn't matter who does it but researchers need to be trained in this area; Porter: librarians are the obvious partners
RLUK_Mike: #jiscres11 Question on the role of librarians in RDM; we do need good metadata for good curation and discovery.
RLUK_Mike: #jiscres11 REF some potential obfuscation here by mentioning RIM and CERIF in the context of RDM? Schuerer has said impact factor tenuous
RLUK_Mike: #jiscres11 Good results already for universities that collaborate in this area, and plenty of scope for more advantages thru co-working
RLUK_Mike: #jiscres11 Hardly any carrots for researchers 2 produce well designed data sets as such: career incentives should be devised for doing so
RLUK_Mike: #jiscres11 effectively collection management processes also need to be part of the preservation policy
RLUK_Mike: #jiscres11 Ownership of RDM needs to become more mainstream: should be under PVCs for research
RLUK_Mike: RT @jrul: Together with Mimas we are using Augmented Reality to bring special collections to life http://t.co/Av4fkZs
RLUK_Mike: #jiscres11 Too many drivers for RDM are bottom up rather than top down: not enough pressure from upper echelons to get this done properly
RLUK_Mike: #jiscres11 Too much of a fragmented approach to curating data at institutions partly because of a discrete focus often on RDM
RLUK_Mike: Schuerer: This is not just about research data,: administrative and other data could also be managed more efficiently through joint curation
RLUK_Mike: Schuerer: research data management may be routed through the REF process via impact analysis #jiscres11
RLUK_Mike: Kevin Schuerer posits a moral as well as a legal obligation to look after research data #jiscres11
RLUK_Mike: Here we go: #jiscres11 just starting. Exhibitors - are there no commercial entities who might be interested in this area?

RLUK_David: Munroe-Blum: the university librarian needs to find a way to create a relationship with their Principal (VC) #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Munroe-Blum: most importantly, don't play safe. We need to take risks otherwise we'll stagnate #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Munroe-Blum: Know your mission, set your goals, benchmark against peers, understand value, develop talent #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Munroe-Blum: third characteristic is 'balance' - how to harmonise the numerous roles demanded of the research university #ARL11spring

RL_UK: RLUK-BL PAC Preservation Assessment Survey Workshop - London June 15th. Join up now! http://bit.ly/iuMZcr
RLUK_David: Catchphrase of the session: 'digitise everything we touch'. Helpful aspiration for all print legacy collections? #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Marcum: In September LoC started issuing demands for pubs to fulfil legal deposit for ejournals. #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Marcum: LoC has long tradition of exchange of print publications with other bodies. Looking to transfer this to digital space. #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Marcum: Every day Library of Congress adds 10,000 items to their collection. Every day! #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Confused by earlier comments on no legal deposit framework for digital in Canada. LAC has a mandate? http://bit.ly/kNxOfg #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: How exciting - the National Archive has the Queen's recipe for scones! http://1.usa.gov/iZkbT3
RLUK_David: Interesting that the US National Archives explicitly puts its mission in terms of serving democracy http://1.usa.gov/m3Xpil #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Can we have completeness and exhaustiveness of content in digital equivalent of legal deposit? #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Berthiaume: Canada does not have a legal framework for deposit of digital publications. #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Good morning with the ARL Fellows. Now today's first main session - National Memory Organizations. #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Interesting that even rather anti oa publishers are beginning to accept the viability of author pays #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Aspesi: there is evidence that moving from the bid deal to al a carte does not result in faculty complaints #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Battery going - will slow down as I move from computer to phone (you'll be pleased to here). #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Aspesi: falls in budgets and increasingly accurate usage data combine to change the environment #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: But Aspesi disagrees. Is the market fundamentally broken? Is there a shift in power to the libraries? #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Aspesi: city believes that libraries will pay what the publishers ask of them, and so Elsevier's revenue will grow #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Next up Claudio Aspesi - you'll have read his analyses of big commercial scholarly publishers #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: That's RLUK's position for the next round of big deals in the UK - http://bit.ly/fJsur7 #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: What to do? Drop the big deals, go al a carte or negotiate really hard, and have a good fall-back position #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: U of California getting a 'relatively' good deal from Elsevier. They negotiate hard. Coincidence? #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Bergstrom: similar size and types of institutions can pay wildly different prices for the same big deals #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Bergstrom: The Grocery Shop in Hell. We're laughing, cause if we didn't we'd be crying! #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: So Bergstrom et al resorted to freedom of information requests to get access to the contracts #ARL11Spring
RLUK_David: Pubs complained that prices don't reflect big deal discounts, but non-disclosure meant we weren't allow to know the new prices #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: First up, Prof Ted Bergstrom. His work on price comparisons is an inspiration #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: And we go straight into the 'International STM Journal Market' with Aspesi, Bergstrom, and Cook. Should be fun. #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: If I'd known I was going to be on display I'd have kept my jacket on! It's the official opening #ARL11spring

RLUK_David: Future issues for PEPRS include governance, business models, and moving to non-journal content #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: PEPRS then takes data from preservation agents such as CLOCKSS, PORTICO, eDepot, etc. and matches them with the journal titles #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: PEPRS registry built on ISSN database. Over 80,000 ISSNs issued for e-serials. #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: Now Peter Burnhill going to speak on Piloting an e-journal preservation registry service (PEPRS) - http://bit.ly/kjNRLt #ARL11spring
RLUK_David: But there is not always a single type of customer of each title - so exclusivity not always appropriate #ARL11spring

RLUK_Mike: The embedded research information manager - JISC/UCL project http://bit.ly/hgdsJw #RLUKAGM2011

RLUK_Mike: Martin Lewis on subject librarians: "How to be a subject librarian - have coffee in the departmental staff room" #RLUKAGM2011
RLUK_Mike: Information professionals should be in a sense relocating away from the library and into academic departments #RLUKAGM2011
RLUK_Mike: Where we need to go: data discovery, data managemnt, compliance & IP, curation and preservation at the subject librarian level #RLUKAGM2011
RLUK_Mike: We need to start from understanding the needs of researchers, and recast what services we provide to them #RLUKAGM2011
RLUK_Mike: The role of subject librarians is one that is being analyzed internationally - the report findings may have broad appeal #RLUKAGM2011
RLUK_Mike: We need to couch roles to take greater account of such things as REF support and bibliometrics #RLUKAGM2011
RLUK_Mike: Concept and name of subject librarian still largely traditional, in contrast to what such library professionals actually do #RLUKAGM2011
RLUK_Mike: Many changes in the library business - more academic collaboration, more global research #RLUKAGM2011

RLUK_Mike: Shorley: We need to make sure that we are protecting and enhancing the research material of the UK #smm2011
RLUK_Mike: UKRR model was expensive - it has worked but it may not be the model for monographs #smm2011
RLUK_Mike: Build on Copac by bringing in smaller, regional, specialist and learned groups who may be doing similar things on the ground #smm2011
RLUK_Mike: Quick poll in the room got about 40% approval for immediate work on such a strategic initiative - none against as such #smm2011
RLUK_Mike: Shorley: We haven't asked the real question - should we or should we not embark on this project? #smm2011
RLUK_Mike: Shorley: Perhaps this could in fact be done at European level, not merely at the UK one #smm2011
RLUK_Mike: Next steps: Need to have a close cost and benefits analysis of this question, and what are the opportunity benefits? #smm2011
RLUK_Mike: How many copies shall we retain, do we consider the condition of an item, what will the BL's role in this be? #smm2011
RLUK_Mike: Who will take this on UKRR, RLUK? How can we institute an adequate catalogue for checking material? #smm2011
