Two new videos from CNI’s spring membership meeting have been posted:

-Building Data Refuge: From Bucket Brigade to Sustainable Action, Panelists from U. Penn, Georgetown, Temple, U. Michigan
A group of volunteers began collaborating in late 2016 to back up vulnerable climate and environmental data at events around the country. This video features key organizers of this effort, discussing the Data Rescue events, the workflow that was developed to support these distributed activities, and some of the challenges encountered. They also describe the emerging effort to move towards a more sustainable model, bringing together public participation, research libraries, and the open data community.

-The Role of Academic Libraries in an Era of Fake News, Alternative Facts, and Information Overload, Donald A. Barclay (University of California, Merced)
Academic librarians have spent years watching students struggle with the challenges of discovering, internalizing, evaluating, and applying credible information. This presentation focuses on what the role of academic libraries should be in helping individuals make sense of a world bursting at the seams with information—some of it completely unreliable. 

Also from this meeting, released previously:

-Ithaka S+R US Library Survey 2016, Roger C. Schonfeld (Ithaka S+R)

-Data Integrity for Librarians, Archivists, and Criminals: What We Can Steal from Bitcoin, BitTorrent, and Usenet, Jeffrey Spies (Center for Open Science)

-Institutional Repository Strategies: What We Learned at the Executive Roundtables, Clifford Lynch (CNI)

-Fresh Perspectives on the Future of University-Based Publishing, Amy Brand (The MIT Press)
-What Today’s Students Have Taught Us, Alison J. Head (Project Information Literacy)
