*Open Repositories, Open to All: OR2015 Conference Stands Behind Commitment
to Ensure All Participants are Treated With Respect*

Indianapolis, IN  The Open Repositories 2015 http://www.or2015.net/
conference will take place June 8-11 in Indianapolis and is wholly
committed to creating an open and inclusive conference environment. As
expressed in its Code of Conduct, OR is dedicated to providing a welcoming
and positive experience for everyone and to having an environment in which
all colleagues are treated with dignity and respect. The three host
institutions for OR2015, Indiana University, University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign, and Virginia Tech, share these values and are likewise
committed to diversity and inclusion.

OR2015 organizers and OR Steering Committee members share the concerns
expressed by many about Indiana's controversial Religious Freedom
Restoration Act (RFRA), now amended from its original form. We are grateful
that the amendments begin to address many but not all of those concerns.
With these concerns in mind, we have decided to continue with OR2015 in
Indianapolis for several reasons:

   1.

   To continue our goal of providing an international forum for the
   discussion of important issues confronting the repository community and
   ensuring that, at a time of significant change in research and scholarly
   communication practices, open repositories continue to play a key role in
   supporting, shaping and sharing those changes and an open agenda for
   research and scholarship
   2.

   To recognise the many members of the OR community who have made a
   significant investment in time and expense to prepare and review conference
   submissions and make travel plans to attend the conference in Indianapolis
   3.

   To support the Indianapolis community, which has shown a strong
   commitment to non-discrimination through its response to RFRA
   4.

   To take the opportunity to work with and support local businesses that
   oppose discrimination and open their doors to everyone

Conference organizers plan to enforce the Open Repositories Code of Conduct
that applies to all conference vendors and suppliers:
http://www.or2015.net/code-of-conduct/. Here are the steps that conference
organizers will take immediately:

   1.

   All associated conference vendors including host institutions, hotel,
   banquet venue, and service providers will be required to convey written
   commitments of non-discrimination.
   2.

   We will make information available at the conference and via the
   conference website about restaurants and other local businesses who are
   opposed to discrimination and open their doors to serve everyone, in
   connection with the Open for Service initiative:
   http://openforservice.org/
   3.

   Conference badges will include the tagline “Open Repositories, Open to
   All” to reflect Open Repositories’ commitment to its core values of dignity
   and respect

As the 10th annual International Conference on Open Repositories, OR2015
represents a key milestone for the community. We look forward to welcoming
participants to Indianapolis to reflect on and celebrate the transformative
changes in repositories, scholarly communication and research data that
have taken place over the last decade and, more importantly,  to look
forward and prepare for the challenges of the next one.

The OR steering committee and OR2015 organizers would like to hear from you
with any questions or concerns. Please feel free to send messages via

The Tenth International Conference on Open Repositories (
http://www.or2015.net/) , OR2015, will take place on June 8-11, 2015 in
Indianapolis (Indiana, USA). The organizers are pleased to invite you to
apply to the 2015 Scholarship Programme.

The Open Repositories Steering Committee is delighted to announce that for
OR2015 we will again be running our Scholarship Programme. This programme
will enable us to provide support for a small number of full registered
places for the 2015 conference in Indianapolis. The programme is open to
librarians, repository managers, developers, and researchers in digital
libraries and related fields. Applicants submitting a paper for the
conference will be given priority consideration for funding (please provide
details of your submission in the application form).

Two questions in the application form ask 'What is it about Open
Repositories that interests you' and 'What do you expect to gain from
attending the conference?' You may wish to prepare answers to these before
completing the form, as the responses to these will be critical to the
success of your application.

Please note: the Scholarship provides funding only for a full conference
registration (including dinner and the poster reception). It does not cover
other costs such as accommodation, travel, and subsistence. It is
anticipated that the applicant's home institution will provide financial
support to supplement the OR Scholarship Award.

Application Form http://goo.gl/Vv03F4 (via GoogleDocs)

The deadline for applications is 30 January 2015.

LOOKING BACK, MOVING FORWARD: OPEN REPOSITORIES AT THE CROSSROADS

OR2015 is the tenth OR conference, and this year's overarching theme
reflects that milestone: Looking Back/Moving Forward: Open Repositories at
the Crossroads. It is an opportunity to reflect on and to celebrate the
transformative changes in repositories, scholarly communication, and
research data over the last decade. More critically however, it will also
help to ensure that open repositories continue to play a key role in
supporting, shaping, and sharing those changes and an open agenda for
research and scholarship.

OR2015 will provide an opportunity to explore the demands and roles now
expected of both repositories and the staff who develop, support, and
manage them - and to prepare them for the challenges of the next decade. We
welcome proposals on this theme, but also on the theoretical, practical,
organizational, or administrative topics related to digital repositories.

reflects that milestone: Looking Back/Moving Forward: Open Repositories at
the Crossroads. It is an opportunity to reflect on and to celebrate the
transformative changes in repositories, scholarly communication and
research data over the last decade. More critically however, it will also

expected of both repositories and the staff who develop, support and manage
them - and to prepare them for the challenges of the next decade. We
welcome proposals on this theme, but also on the theoretical, practical,
organizational or administrative topics related to digital repositories. We
are particularly interested in:

*1. Supporting Open Scholarship, Open Science, and Cultural Heritage Online*

Papers are invited to consider how repositories can best support the needs
of open science, open scholarship, and cultural heritage to make research
as accessible as possible, including:

• Open access, open data and open educational resources
• Scholarly workflows, publishing and communicating scientific knowledge
• Compliance with funder mandates
• Considerations for cultural heritage and digital humanities resources

* 2. Managing Research (and Open) Data*

Papers are invited to consider how repositories can support the needs of
research data. Areas of interest are:

• Data registries
• Storage
• Curation lifecycle management
• Management and digital preservation tools

*3. Integrating with External Systems*

Papers are invited to explore, evaluate, or demonstrate integration with
external systems, including:

• CRIS and research management systems
• Notification systems (e.g. SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE))
• Remote identifier services (e.g. ORCID, DOI, etc.)
• Preservation services
• Archival systems (e.g. CALM or Archivists’ Toolkit)

*4. Re-using Repository Content*

Papers are invited to showcase how repository content can be re-used in the
context of:

• Discipline-based repositories and services
• Discovery services
• Integration of semantic technologies
• Repository networks

*5. Exploring Metrics and Assessment*

Papers are invited to present experiences on scholarly metrics and
assessment services, particularly:

• Bibliometrics
• Downloads (e.g. COUNTER compliance)
• Analytics
• Altmetrics

*6. Managing Rights*

Papers are invited to examine the role of rights management in the context
of open repositories, including:

• Research and scholarly communication outputs
• Licenses (e.g. Creative Commons, Open Data Commons)
• Embargoes
• Requirements of funder mandates

*7. Developing and Training Staff*

Papers are invited to consider the evolving role of staff who support and
manage repositories across libraries, cultural heritage organizations,
research offices and computer centres, especially:

• New roles and responsibilities
• Training needs and opportunities
• Career path and recruitment
• Community support

*8. Building the Perfect Repository*

Papers are invited to look ahead to OR16 and beyond to consider what the
perfect repository looks like:

• Key features and services
• Who would be its users?
• How would it transform scholarly communication?
• What lessons have been learned since the first OR?
• Or, is it a pipe dream and there's no such thing?

Submissions that demonstrate original and repository-related work outwith
these themes will be considered, but preference will be given to
submissions which address them.

  Lisa, I hadn't know about this so I just spend some time reading the
 items
  you list below. I was primarily motivated to do so because I had never
  heard of this famous librarian, Joe Murphy. (I must be in a different
  conference circuit than he is.)
 
  I also was interested because I've recently joined the hardworking group
  of Wikipedians who work to distinguish between notable persons and able
  self-promoters. In doing so, I've learned a lot about how self-promotion
  works, especially in social media. In Wikipedia, to be considered
 notable,
  there needs to be some reliable proof - that is, third-party references,
  not provided by the individual in question. In terms of accomplishments,
  for example for academics, there is a list of measures, albeit not
  measurable in the scientific sense. [1]
 
  Just for a lark, look at the Google scholar profiles for Joe Murphy,
 RoyT,
  and for myself:
 
  http://scholar.google.com/citations?user=zW1lb04Jhl=enoi=ao
  http://scholar.google.com/citations?user=LJw73cAJhl=en
  http://scholar.google.com/citations?user=m4Tx73QJhl=enoi=ao
 
  The h-index, while imprecise, is about as close as you get to something
  one can cite as a measure. It's not a decision, but it is an indication.
 
  I put this forward not as proof of anything, but to offer that reputation
  is extremely hard to quantify, but should be looked at with a critical
 eye
  and not taken for granted. It also fits in with what we already know,
 which
  is that men promote themselves in the workplace more aggressively than
  women do. In fact, in the Wikipedia group, we mainly find articles about
  men whose notability is over-stated. (You can see my blog post on the
  problems of notability for women. [2])
 
  I greatly admire your stand for free speech. Beyond this, I will contact
  you offline with other thoughts.

  I know many of you have already been boosting the signal, and we thank

  For those who do not know, Joe Murphy is currently suing nina and I in
  $1.25M defamation case because
 
   From our official statement
  (http://teamharpy.wordpress.com/why-are-we-being-sued/)
 
  Mr. Murphy claims that Ms. Rabey “posted the following false,
  libelous and highly damaging tweet accusing the plaintiff of being a
  ‘sexual predator'”3. He further claims that Ms. de jesus wrote a blog
  post that “makes additional false, libelous, highly damaging,
  outrageous, malicious statements against the plaintiff alleging the
  commission of sexual harassment and sexual abuse of women and other
  forms of criminal and unlawful behaviour”4.
 
  Both Ms. Rabey and Ms. de jesus maintain that our comments are fair
  and are truthful, which we intend to establish in our defense. Neither
  of us made the claims maliciously nor with any intent to damage Mr.
  Murphy’s reputation.
 
  Right now we need the following most importantly:
 
  1. We have a call out for additional witnesses
  (http://teamharpy.wordpress.com/call-for-witnesses/), which have
  started to filter in more accounts of harrassment. Please, PLEASE, if
  you know/seen/heard anything about the plaintiff, or know someone who
  might -- please have them get in touch.
 
  2. Share our site (http://teamharpy.wordpress.com) which includes
  details of the case and updates. Please help us get the word out to as
  many people as possible about the plaintiff's attempt to silence those
  speaking up against sexual harassment and why you won't stand for it.
 
  3.
  onations: Many, many of you have asked to help donate to fund our
  mounting legal costs. We will have a donation page up soon. Even if
  you cannot help financially, please share across your social networks.
 
  We will not be silenced. We will not be shamed.
 
  Thank you again. The outpouring of support that has been happening has

Re: [CODE4LIB] code4lib in San Diego?

2014-05-29 Thread Michael J. Giarlo
That said, if the SD folks want to go out one night without having to do
much planning or coordination -- think meetup here rather than local
code4lib meeting -- they should be be encouraged to do that too.

I would also encourage folks to keep these discussions on-list instead of
responding privately, if that's OK with Bee and other interested folks.
 It'll be good for the broader community to watch the SD/SoCal crowd
self-organize, learn from it, and lend a hand where appropriate!

[CODE4LIB] Input requested: OR2014 Open Source Software Community Panel Topics

2014-05-21 Thread Michael J. Giarlo
Hi, all!

I'll be part of a panel at Open Repositories 2014 entitled, Building
Successful, Open Repository Software Ecosystems: Technology and Community,
comprising representatives from the Archivematica, Fedora Commons, Project
Hydra, and Islandora open-source software communities.

We would welcome your input in framing the discussion, both through
questions and topic suggestions.  We have started a list here -- please add
to it!

http://www.google.com/moderator/#16/e=216d12


For more context, the panel description is:
=
Archivematica, AtoM (Access to Memory), Fedora, Hydra, and Islandora
provide a set of functions which contribute to a diverse curation and
repository ecosystem. They are also projects existing in a greater open
source ecosystem. Overlapping functionality and gaps among the tools
available can make piecing together workflows and sharing solutions
challenging. Sharing practices and collaborating on directions benefits
each of the projects, as well as advances the objectives of the open
repository community.

This panel session offers a conversation about strategies to collaborate
more efficiently and explore connections in the repository software
ecosystem. Panelists will provide an overview of how each community
operates, touching on the technological and social dimensions of community
open-source project governance. We will look at how each of the communities
collaborates with, learns from, challenges, and inspires the others, as
well as how they engage other communities and organizations contributing to
a thriving and more diverse repository ecosystem.

Re: [CODE4LIB] Research Gate vs. Institutional Repositories

2014-03-30 Thread Michael J. Giarlo
Hi Matt,

I haven't heard very many folks asking about Research Gate on campus
myself, though I don't often get to directly engage researchers.  That
said, social features don't have to be orthogonal to repository services.
 In fact, we incorporated a bunch of these -- sharing with
Twitter/Facebook/Google+, user profiles, following/unfollowing, activity
streams, and some others -- into our repository service, ScholarSphere.

A major theme for our 2014 development is integration with external
services to situate the repository in an ecosystem of networked services
(and, let's face it, these are all probably more widely used than the
repository itself, so why not create flows to pull and push content and
metadata from them?).  Of course we're an institution with some cycles to
put towards sustained custom development, so I realize that this is an
answer that reflects some privilege that not every institution has; for
some, just keeping a DSpace instance running is a resource strain, so I
acknowledge this isn't for everyone.

Best of luck,

-Mike

 Hi Code4Libbers,

 Hope everyone is enjoying the conference.  I am sad I was unable to
 make it but I like what I have been able to catch of the livestream.
 Anyway, I wanted to get some community thoughts on an issue I have
 been noticing lately.  I have run into an assortment of faculty that
 are convinced the Research Gate should replace the institutional
 repository at their schools.  Being the the repository guy at where I
 work this is rather disconcerting since they do very different things.
  Research Gate is a form of social media service, whereas the
 repositories are all about preservation and access.  I have tried to
 articulate this point to them without much success.  As such I wanted
 to consult the collective brilliance of Code4Lib to see if anyone else
 has also run into this or have thoughts on how to respond.  This may
 seem like a trivial issue, but it has come up enough that I am
 starting to get concerned for the safety the repository.  So any
 thoughts would be appreciated.  Thanks for your time and hope everyone
 is having a good conference.

Hi folks,
   
It looks like The Pit is a popular place, but we need to be mindful
 of
   the
space and staffing at the restaurant if we're sending more groups
 their
way. If all the group leaders for the Pit groups have already
 confirmed
their reservations with the restaurant AND the restaurant can
   accommodate a
fourth group around the same time as the other groups, then go for
 it.
Otherwise, there are many other great restaurants to choose from that
  are
still waiting for their first group!
   
Cheers,
Becky, herder

[CODE4LIB] OR2014 Conference Update: Registration Open; New Scholarship Programme

2014-02-21 Thread Michael J. Giarlo
*FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE*
*A message from the Open Repositories 2014 Conference organizers*

February 21, 2014
Read it online: http://bit.ly/1mwHBZx

*Register for Open Repositories 2014*
*New scholarship programme aims to expand OR participation*

*Helsinki, FI * We are pleased to announce that registration for Open
Repositories 2014 http://or2014.helsinki.fi/ is now open. The five-day
conference will be held in Helsinki, the capital of Finland, from June 9 to
June 13, 2014. You will find full registration information on the following
page: http://or2014.helsinki.fi/?page_id=454.

*Open Repositories 2014–registration and fees*

The early registration fee, 320 EUR, will be available until May
4. After May 4, the registration fee will be 400 EUR. The conference dinner
will be held on Wednesday, June 11, on Valkosaari Island in Helsinki Harbor
(more information here http://or2014.helsinki.fi/?p=420) and is priced
separately at 60 EUR. There is also a special Friday evening excursion to
Suomenlinna Sea Fortress (more information
herehttp://or2014.helsinki.fi/?p=432)
available for those delegates who will be staying in Helsinki until
Saturday.

The full conference program is expected to be available in late April once
the review process is completed. An early draft version of the schedule
(subject to change) is available here:
https://www.conftool.com/or2014/sessions.php.

The registration process will be handled by TAVI Congress Bureau. If you
have questions related to conference registration, you can contact them
directly at or-2014[at]tavicon.fi.

*Pilot scholarship programme*

A highlight of this year's conference is the availability of delegate
scholarships for the first time. The Open Repositories Steering Committee
is delighted to announce a pilot Scholarship Programme for OR2014. This
programme aims to expand participation by providing registration support
for a small number of delegates to this year's conference. The scholarship
programme is open to librarians, repository managers, developers and
researchers in digital libraries and related fields.

*Please note:* the OR2014 scholarship programme provides a full discount
for conference registration and the conference dinner. It does not cover
other costs including accommodation, travel and subsistence. It is
anticipated that the applicant's home institution will provide financial
support to supplement an OR scholarship award.

Only fully-completed applications will be accepted. *The deadline for
applications is Sunday, March 14, 2014.*

You may apply for funding here: http://or2014.helsinki.fi/?page_id=412

For more information or to nominate someone for a scholarship, please
contact the Scholarship Committee chair, William J Nixon (

Re: [CODE4LIB] A couple quick questions for Hydra or Islandora users

 Greetings! A couple quick questions for Hydra or Islandora
 users/developers:

 1) What made you choose your framework over others (for example, DSpace)?
 What is its killer feature? Flexibility? More metadata options?
 Availability of SPARQL endpoint? Language? The community?


​Hi!  We chose Hydra at Penn State after confirming it would meet our
functional (feature checklist) and architectural (multiple apps using a
common, extensible platform) needs​.  The big reason?  The community.
 Community is the heart of Hydra, not Fedora or Rails or any particular
technology.  The consistent growth, technical maturity, and vibrant
collaborative climate are what convinced us that Hydra was the best
community for us to be involved in.

A colleague and I wrote a bit about how community is a fundamental strategy
for our efforts, which touches on how/why we selected Hydra.  You can read
that here if you want more info:

http://www.diglib.org/archives/5288/

The number of partners has doubled each of the past couple years -- we're
now up to 21 partners, with more on the way.  To see the list of partners,
check out the footer of projecthydra.org.​

2) What has your experience been like developing within that framework? If
 you migrated from another digital asset management system, what are the
 comparative strengths/weakness of your framework?


​Our experience has been extremely positive, and we continue to be engaged
in sustaining and growing the Hydra community and its technologies.  The
overriding strength of Hydra, AFAIC, is the growing number of institutions
that have committed not only to using it but to maintaining it and
improving it; Hydra is organized in a decentralized, distributed manner,
and each of the partners holds a stake in advancing it. I can't say I've
witnessed​ more vibrant or more diverse development communities within
libraryland and that was more important to us than some of the more
tactical concerns like Rails v. Django, Solr v. ElasticSearch, or Fedora v.
whatever.

​Good luck with your fact-finding mission, Jacob!

[CODE4LIB] Time to submit your OR2014 proposal!

2014-01-09 Thread Michael J. Giarlo
As the year turns it's time to look forward to the Ninth International
Conference on Open Repositories, OR2014 (#or2014). The conference will take
place June 9-13 in Helsinki, Finland hosted by University of Helsinki‘s
twin libraries: Helsinki University Library and the National Library of
Finland.



The theme this year is Towards Repository Ecosystems emphasizing the
interconnected nature of repositories, institutions, technologies, data and
the people who make it all work together. There are several different
formats (see below) provided to encourage your participation in this year's
conference. With the deadline for submissions fast approaching the
organizers invite you to review the call for proposals here:
http://or2014.helsinki.fi/?page_id=281, and to submit your proposal here:
https://www.conftool.com/or2014/ by Feb. 3, 2014.



KEY DATES

• 3 February 2014: Deadline for submissions

• 4 April 2014: Submitters notified of acceptance to general conference

• 17 April 2014: Submitters notified of acceptance to interest groups

• 9-13 June 2014: OR2014 conference



SUBMISSION PROCESS



Conference Papers and Panels

We welcome proposals that are at least two pages and no more than four
pages in length for presentations or panels that deal with digital
repositories and repository services. Abstracts of accepted papers will be
made available through the conference’s web site, and later they and
associated materials will be made available in a repository intended for
current and future OR content. In general, sessions are an hour and a half
long with three papers per session; panels may take an entire session.
Relevant papers unsuccessful in the main track will automatically be
considered for inclusion, as appropriate, as an Interest Group presentation.



Interest Group Presentations

One to two-page proposals for presentations or panels that focus on use of
one of the major repository platforms (DSpace, ePrints, Fedora and Invenio)
are invited from developers, researchers, repository managers,
administrators and practitioners describing novel experiences or
developments in the construction and use of repositories involving issues
specific to these technical platforms.



24x7 Presentation Proposals

We welcome one- to two-page proposals for 7 minute presentations comprising
no more than 24 slides. Similar to Pecha Kuchas or Lightning Talks, these
24x7 presentations will be grouped into blocks based on conference themes,
with each block followed by a moderated discussion / question and answer
session involving the audience and whole block of presenters. This format
will provide conference goers with a fast-paced survey of like work across
many institutions, and presenters the chance to disseminate their work in
more depth and context than a traditional poster.



Repository Rants 24x7 Block

One block of 24x7's at OR14 will revolve around repository rants: brief
exposés that challenge the conventional wisdom or practice, and highlight
what the repository community is doing that is misguided, or perhaps just
missing altogether. The top proposals will be incorporated into a track
meant to provoke unconventional approaches to repository services.



Posters, Demos and Developer How-To's

We invite developers, researchers, repository managers, administrators and
practitioners to submit one-page proposals for posters, demonstrations,
technical how-tos and technology briefings. Posters provide an opportunity
to present work that isn’t appropriate for a paper; you’ll have the chance
to do a 60-second pitch for your poster or demo during a plenary session at
the conference. Developer How-To's will provide a forum for running a
mini-tutorial or demonstration in the developer lounge, if there are enough
interested parties.



Developer Challenge

Each year a significant proportion of the delegates at Open Repositories
are software developers who work on repository software or related
services, and once again OR2014 will feature a Developer Challenge. An
announcement will be made in the future with more details on the Challenge.
Developers are also encouraged to make submissions to the other
tracks--including posters, demonstrations, and 24x7 presentations--to
present on recently completed work and works-in-progress.



Workshops and Tutorials

One- to two-page proposals for Workshops and Tutorials addressing
theoretical or practical issues around digital repositories are welcomed.
Please address the following in your proposal:



• The subject of the event and what knowledge you intend to convey

• Length of session (e.g., 1-hour, 2-hour? half a day? whole day?)

• How many attendees you plan to accommodate

• Technology and facility requirements

• Any other supplies or support required

• A brief statement on the learning outcomes from the session

• Anything else you believe is pertinent to carrying out the session

Submit your paper, poster, demo or workshop proposal through the conference
system. PDF 

[CODE4LIB] Call for Proposals: Open Repositories Conference, June 9-13, Helsinki

2013-11-12 Thread Michael J. Giarlo
The Ninth International Conference on Open Repositories, OR2014, will be
held 9-13 June 2014 in Helsinki, Finland. The organizers are pleased to
invite you to contribute to the program. This year's conference theme is:

*Towards Repository Ecosystems*

Repository systems are but one part of the ecosystem in 21st century
research, and it is increasingly clear that no single repository will serve
as the sole resource for its community. How can repositories best be
positioned to offer complementary services in a network that includes
research data management systems, institutional and discipline
repositories, publishers, and the open Web? When should service providers
build to fill identified niches, and where should they connect with related
services?  How might these networks offer services to support organizations
that lack the resources to build their own, or researchers seeking
to optimize their domain workflows?

Examining how repositories best integrate into the holistic research flow;
exploring ties between domain-specific repositories and institutional
repositories; and understanding durable content strategies outside of
traditional repository environments are the central themes of the Open
Repositories 2014 conference. We welcome proposals on these themes, but
also on the theoretical, practical, organizational or administrative topics
related to digital repositories. We're particularly interested in hearing
about:

* Unconventional approaches to repository-like services
* Interconnection between publishers and repositories
* Researcher-centered design for scholarly workflows
* Adaptations to support curation lifecycle management, e.g., for research
data
* Real-world scalability and performance stories: working at web-scale,
with big data for global usage
* Requirements for holding restricted or classified data in repositories
* Infrastructure to accommodate national and international mandates for
data management and open access
* Positioning repositories closer to (local, consortial, or cloud-based)
cyberinfrastructure for data processing
* Leveraging connections to external services including:
  * Remote identifier services (e.g., DOI, ORCID)
  * (Re-)using repository data/metadata in new and unexpected ways,
including integrated discovery
  * Scholarly social media services, such as for annotation, review,
comment, reputation, citation, and altmetrics
  * CRIS and research management systems
  * Digital preservation tools, services  infrastructure
* Community and sustainability in an open world


KEY DATES

• 3 February 2014: Deadline for submissions
 • 4 April 2014: Submitters notified of acceptance to general conference
 • 17 April 2014: Submitters notified of acceptance to interest groups

​Hi David,

Google Drive (née Docs) will allow you to share your document with other
users so that they can view and comment (and not edit), FWIW.  There may be
more elegant solutions that allow, say, nested/threaded comments.  I know
there is blog software out there that does this, but it's been a few years
so I forget what it's called.

 We could just do that via email, of course.  But I thought it might be
 better to have something web-based.  A wiki is not the best solution here,
 as I don't want those providing feedback to be able to change the text
 itself, but rather just leave comments.

 My fall back plan is to just use Wordpress, breaking the document up into
 various pages or posts, which people can then comment on.  But it seems to
 me there must be a better solutions here -- maybe one where people can
 leave comments in line with the text?

 Any suggestions?

   years ago as a system to support the discovery and retrieval of data
 from
   the
   NASA Astrophysics missions and the scholarly literature about them.
  Today,
   the
   ADS finds itself as the central discovery engine for astronomical
   information,
   used nearly every day by nearly every astronomer. Moving into its third
   decade, the ADS continues to serve the research community while
 remaining
   at
   the forefront of the massive technological and sociological changes
   occurring
   in the field of scholarly communication. By joining our group you will
 be
   actively supporting the discovery, dissemination and reuse of
 scientific
   publications and data!
  
  
   The ADS is currently developing the next-generation web-based platform
   supporting current and future services. To this end, the project is
   committed
   to re-using and enhancing public domain software modules when they
 exist,
   and
   developing new open-source software when necessary. The main components
  of
   the
   system architecture are Apache SOLR/Lucene, CERN Invenio and MongoDB.
 The
   development stack includes java, python, flask, javascript and
 bootstrap.
  
  
   The project is looking for a highly-motivated full-stack developer
   interested
   in joining a dynamic team of talented individuals architecting and
   implementing the new platform. The primary responsibility of the
 employee
   is
   the design, development, and support of the ADS front-end applications
   (including the new search interface) as well as the implementation of
 the
   user
   database, login system and personalization of the new software
 platform.
  
  
   DUTIES:
  
  
   Duties at the grate 11 level may include, but are not limited to:
  designing
   and developing robust software applications and components to support
 the
   ADS
   services, in particular the ADS user interfaces, and its interaction
 with
   the
   back-end system components; providing ongoing support for the ADS
  system's
   platform, including its bibliographic database, search engine, user
   database,
   and other web-based applications used by the project; defining system
   requirements and develop new tools to improve user submission and
  curation
   efforts; developing and/or modifing existing tools used for digital
  content
   harvesting, metadata enrichment, document conversion and indexing;
   participating in the maintenance of ADS data holdings by taking part in
  the
   creation, curation and enrichment of datasets and metadata records, and
   their
   ingestion in the ADS databases.
  
  
   Duties at the grade 12 level, in addition to those reflected at the 11
   level,
   may include: working with members of other organizations to coordinate
   software development efforts and enable data exchange between ADS and
 its
   partners; designing and implementing services and Application
 Programming
   Interfaces that enable a high level of interoperability and integration
   between ADS and its collaborators.

Archives Symposium, Call for Papers Date: Tue, 12 Mar 2013 12:11:46 -0400

Cultural Heritage Archives:
Networks, Innovation  Collaboration

A Symposium at the Library of Congress

This symposium is contingent on passage of the federal US budget.

Sept. 26-27, 2013

The American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, Washington, DC, will
hold a symposium entitled Cultural Heritage Archives: Networks, Innovation
 Collaboration on Sept. 26-27, 2013. Cultural heritage archives serve as
valuable repositories of memory and knowledge that document the ongoing
community-based creativity of individuals and groups. During the past decade,
there has been an increasing acknowledgement of the value and power of
developing such archives at all levels, from very local and informal
collections to large national and international repositories.

The Cultural Heritage Archives symposium aims to energize the discussion of
ethnographic archival thought and practice by presenting fresh and dynamic
strategies for contemporary archival realities. It will also provide a forum
for new voices to present and discuss emerging archival initiatives as well as
case studies focused on several key topics for a public audience. The symposium
will combine longer presentations by invited speakers with short papers
generated through this call.

Symposium Sessions:

 *   Session I: Users of Cultural Heritage Archival Materials
 *   Session II: Preservation and Digital Stewardship
 *   Session III: Archival Description
 *   Session IV: Education and Training
 *   Session V: Sharing Resources
 *   Session VI: Forging Archival Collaborations and Alliances

 I think you're reading too much into Zoia's gender here.  As Ross

 have just been picked from famous library folks.  I don't imagine
 anyone would have a problem finding a famous male librarian to rename
 the bot to, though.  I don't think there is anything to read into the
 gender of the bot here.

  But to have a play-thing that is gendered is a really,
  really bad idea. In fact, to have a play-thing of any kind on the
 channel
  might not be a good idea.

 Would you object to a male name?  I don't think playing with a bot
 is a bad thing.  I've played with real people in the room in the
 same way.  The nice thing about a bot is that you know you'll get a
 response (whereas rsinger might just ignore me).

 As I said, I think you're reading too much into the bot's gender in
 this case, but I can't imagine anyone would have qualms about renaming
 the bot to a male name.  The name is pretty inconsequential; it was
 just meant as a tribute to famous folks in our field.

  I like Jon Gorman's suggestion of having a friendly, helpful bot and a
  wise-cracking one. That way, those of us annoyed by the ongoing
  wise-cracking can ignore it, while still having access to the helpful

Re: [CODE4LIB] A gentle proposal: slim down zoia during the conference

At the risk of getting shouted down in public (wouldn't be the first
time!), let me just put this out there: perhaps instead of, like, whipping
up a Doodle poll for us all to vote on which plugins get temporarily
disabled and which ones don't, how about we have a few folks volunteer to
gently ask that folks be mindful of what they are asking zoia to do.  Heck,
we can even reflect that in the topic, and make an announcement from the
podium.

We already ask that channel registrants be mindful of what they say; is it
much more to ask that that include which zoia plugins they call?

  Also, I've seen a number of reports over the last few years of women

  together, they paint a picture of men (particularly drunken men)
  creating an atmosphere that makes a lot of people feel excluded and
  worry about being harassed or worse.  So I think a positive
  statement of values, and the general raising of consciousness of
  these issues, is a good thing.

 I'm a member of software.coop, which helps write library software,
 including Koha - we co-hosted KohaCon12 this summer.  Like all co-ops,
 our core values include equality.  I would like to see an
 anti-harassment policy for code4lib.

 However, I'm saddened that I seem to be the first to object to the
 hand-waving (number of reports) and prejudice in the above
 paragraph.  The above problems seem more likely to arise from being
 drunk or being idiots than from being men.  Please, let's treat all
 groups with equal respect and reserve our ire for particular members
 when they give us reason to do otherwise.

 The anti-harassment policy should not be developed from a we need to
 kick men into line standpoint.  As such, I suggest

 https://github.com/code4lib/antiharassment-policy/blob/master/code_of_conduct.md
 should say Discriminatory language and imagery (including sexual)
 rather than leading with a special case of Sexual.

 I also suggest generalising religion to religious beliefs to avoid
 predictable attempts to insult some minorities and claim it's allowed
 because they're not formal, organised or state-approved religions.

 I'd support removing or somehow couching language about any organizer,

 All the other sanctions seem to involve the likelihood of deliberation
 involving some time and multiple people, and some possibility of a
 misunderstanding being cleared up. I don't think a single volunteer—who, in
 theory, is granted the power to ban someone for life!—is going to ban
 someone or refuse to post a talk online without thinking about it for a
 while and involving other organizers.

 By their nature, however, something said in the middle of a talk doesn't
 admit of much in the way of deliberation between organizers, or time to
 deliberate, and you can't really finish a talk ended by someone if other
 organizers persuade the volunteer that they made a mistake. The action has
 to be taken quickly, by someone who hasn't talked it through with others
 and is largely irreversible. It's a recipe for controversy and
 disagreement, and potential unfairness.

 I propose that the right reaction to an offensive talk is for people to
 walk out of it while it's going on, and to deal with any sanctions required
 AFTER the talk is over, when there's time and space to get the decision
 right.

 Having a sort of speed dating setup might help make better fits between
 mentors and mentees, as well.

 That is, a roomful of nerds deferring passively to one another might not
 get us very far :)  Something more structured about what people want to
 learn and what mentors know and how they get along together would probably
 make for a more productive outcome.

  Maybe almost like a buddy system, so that the first meeting between a
  mentor and mentee is at a code4libcon (national, regional, or
  otherwise) if possible.
 
  This might simply be a good idea for first timers who are not going

 +1 to Bess for raising the topic -- I'm onboard.

 Jon's point is an important one.  Code4Lib does not have a formal
 structure, owner, or convening body.  Any power in the Code4Lib community
 is directly proportional to the collective will of the members of this
 community.  Therefore I think it is important to have a way for community
 members to register an endorsement of the policy/code-of-conduct.  That
 will be how the local meeting hosts and the IRC channel ops and the mailing
 list owners (all volunteers) are empowered to take action.

 Here are a couple of ways to do it, along with some advantages and
 disadvantages:

  * Registering names on a wiki page:
+ Low overhead, account infrastructure not required
- Subject to vandalism and false signatures

  * Sign by forking the GitHub repo:
+ Good for version control (a particular version is signed)
+ Fork appearing on GitHub repo list keeps commitment in the forefront
 of signer's mind
- Requiring signers to have a GitHub account may not be realistic

  * Create a lightweight signing app on Code4Lib.org
+ Lighter weight account registration requirement than GitHub
- Requires someone to create app
- Signers must sign up for a code4lib.org account; overhead for
 code4lib.org administrators

All,

Building on what Bess and others have written, and on the GitHub repo that
anarchivist set up, I've contributed a rough draft of a Code4Lib code of
conduct:

https://github.com/code4lib/antiharassment-policy/blob/master/code_of_conduct.md

This strawperson code of conduct is based on DLF Forum's, which is based on
the Ada Initiative's sample policy. It is modified slightly to reflect a
broader scope of the conference, conference social events, the IRC channel,
and the mailing list.

Throw darts, rinse, repeat.

But then the Congressperson punts it off to an intern, who delegates
that to a junior intern, who is so confused that he calls the Library
of Congress.  Ultimately that call gets routed around to Ed Summers,
who blogs angrily about RDF, RDF which becomes sentient and fulfills
the request its damn self.  The semantic web is here, my friends, and

 What's key:
 1) minimal effort in install/setup i.e. ready to use out of the box
 2) small scale is okay, we have a very small team
 3) ideally, have an area for documentation and issue creation via email

 What does your institution use?
 What do you like and dislike most about it?
 Would you recommend it to others?

We have been using Redmine for the past year or so. We use it for
issues and for code repo integration and for tying issues to commits.
We don't much use the wiki/doc functionality and we do not create
issues via email, though I do believe it supports both of those
features out of the box.

We're very happy with it and would recommend it. It runs on Ruby on
Rails, so make sure you can support that in your environment, needless
to say.

I've also used Trac in the past, which I also liked very much but I've
found Redmine to be a little less fiddly though I recognize that is
highly subjective. If it's easier to support Python/wsgi apps in your
environment, Trac might be a better choice than than Redmine assuming
its feature set matches your needs.

 fellow c4l newbies and veterans for an evening of food, socializing, and

 The sign up page is at

 There are a lot of restaurants to choose from, so there should be plenty of
 options to go around. Here are the guidelines (also listed on the wiki):

   - Max of 6 per location
      - Please, no waitlisting :(
      - Some places are large enough to accommodate multiple groups - it's
      your responsibility to find out either way if you're interested
      - ID yourselves so we can get a good mix of new people and veterans
   in each group
      - New folks - n
      - c4l vets - v
   - One leader needed for each location (declare yourself! - Vets are
   highly encouraged to lead the group :))
      - Leader duties
         - Make reservations if required; otherwise make sure that the
         restaurant can handle a group of 6 rowdy library coders
         - Herd folks from hotel/other designated meeting place to

 Go forth and sign up! Let me know if you have any questions and I'll see
 you all soon.
