From: Direction & Oversight Committee, UC Libraries Advisory Structure

Subject: Research Data Matters video available for broad distribution

The UC Libraries Data Curation Common Knowledge Group has created the first video (https://youtu.be/Lr722k7NyGU) of a proposed video series aimed at promoting awareness of the fundamental concepts and practices for managing research data. The Data Curation CKG identified a shared need for reusable educational material on research data curation among UC campuses. This introductory video incorporates the voices and testimonials of UC researchers to communicate the importance of good data management practices.

We encourage campus libraries to promote the video through websites, social media, and other appropriate communication channels. Options for sharing, including HTML code for embedding the video in web pages, are available by selecting "Share" under the YouTube video. When embedding, select "Show More" for advanced options (such as removing suggested videos when the video finishes).

Viewers are encouraged to complete a brief feedback survey, linked to at the end of the video, and available here: http://guides.lib.ucr.edu/uclibrariesdataservices/feedback

Viewership and feedback will be used to assess this pilot and inform future development of the series. Questions or feedback can also be submitted directly to the project leads, Kat Koziar (katherine.koziar@ucr.edu) and Emily Lin (elin@ucmerced.edu).

Thank you.

CDL Interim Leadership Named

Description: 

Yesterday, Susan Carlson, UCOP’s Vice Provost for Academic Personnel and Programs, issued a formal announcement (below) regarding the California Digital Library’s interim leadership.


 

October 7, 2015

I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Ivy Anderson as Interim Executive Director of the California Digital Library effective October 1, 2015. Anderson’s appointment follows the retirement of Laine Farley, who left her post as long-time CDL Executive Director at the end of September. Anderson will lead the CDL as Interim Executive Director while a national search for a permanent head is underway.

Anderson has served as Director of Collection Development and Management at the CDL since late 2005, where she oversees a broad range of shared collections activities in collaboration with the ten UC campus libraries. She will continue these responsibilities while serving as Interim Executive Director. Anderson is well-known among the research library community for her work in collaborative licensing, shared collection development, and scholarly communication innovation, and holds leadership positions in numerous national and international initiatives. She currently serves as co-Principal Investigator for the Western Regional Storage Trust, a large-scale collaborative print journal archiving program in the Western U.S.; is a principal in the joint CDL-UC Davis Pay It Forward project, which is investigating the costs of a large-scale conversion to gold open access among North American research universities; serves on the Program Steering Committee and chairs the Collections Committee of HathiTrust, a shared digital repository of mass digitized book content; and is a member of the Executive Committee of SCOAP3, a global initiative to convert high-energy physics journals to open access. Anderson has also contributed to numerous national licensing standards efforts and has served on the advisory boards of PubMed Central, the Berkeley Digital Library Copyright Project, and the Licensing Initiative of the Association of Research Libraries.   Previous positions include Program Manager for E-Resource Management and Licensing at the Harvard University Library, where she established a shared licensing program among Harvard’s many libraries, and Head of Information Systems at the Brandeis University Libraries. She holds a B.A with honors in music from New York University, an M.L.S. from Simmons College, and completed requirements for the Ph.D. in music history and theory at Brandeis University.

I am also pleased that Felicia Poe, Manager of User Experience Design and Interim Director of the UC Curation Center (UC3), has agreed to serve as CDL’s Interim Deputy of Operations during this period.

Poe is known and respected within the UC library community for her expertise in user-centered design and assessment as well as for her contributions to effective organizational design. Poe came to the CDL in 2001 and formally established the CDL assessment, usability, and user experience program in 2004. She previously served on the UC Libraries’ Systemwide Operations and Planning Advisory Group and currently serves on the UC Libraries’ Direction and Oversight Committee. Poe holds a B.A. in International Relations from San Francisco State University and an M.I.S. in Information Science from Indiana University, Bloomington.

A national search for an Associate Vice Provost and Executive Director to lead the next era of digital library development at the CDL is currently underway.   Anderson and Poe will both serve in their interim capacities until the new AVP is on board.
