Subject: Videos: Digitizing Paleontology & Scholarly Communication Orphans
Date: Tue, 23 May 2017 14:15:00 -0400
Two new videos from CNI’s spring membership meeting have been posted:

-To the Rescue of the Orphans of Scholarly Communication, Herbert Van de Sompel and Martin Klein (Los Alamos National Laboratory), Michael L. Nelson (Old Dominion University)
Scholars have started using a wide variety of online portals which exist outside of the established scholarly publishing system (, SlideShare, etc.) to conduct aspects of their research and to convey research results. Whereas initiatives such as LOCKSS and Portico have emerged to make sure that the output of the established scholarly publishing system gets archived, no comparable efforts exist for scholarly artifacts deposited in these online platforms. This video describes how these scholarly orphans could be archived. 

-Collaborating to Digitize Paleontological Collections at the University of Wyoming, Chad Hutchens, University of Wyoming
Academic libraries and museums are increasingly collaborating on digitization, metadata aggregation, and data management to offer access to objects that rarely see the light of day in many small museums. The University of Wyoming Libraries and the UW Geological Museum have been working together to make physical objects (largely vertebrate fossils) available in 3D formats to anyone with an internet connection.
