Subject: Videos: Reference Rot in ScholComm & Migrating Library Collections/Linked Data
Date: Thu, 02 Feb 2017 14:35:15 -0500
Two new videos from CNI’s December membership meeting have been posted:

Many scholarly articles link to website materials and those items are particularly vulnerable to reference rot, the combination of link rot and content drift. In Reference Rot in Scholarly Communication: A Reliable Quantification and a Proposed Solution, Martin Klein of Los Alamos National Laboratory reports on a proposed approach to address this problem.

In Migrating Library Collections and Operations to Linked Data, Carl Stahmer and Mackenzie Smith discuss a roadmap for conversion at the University of California, Davis.
