Subject: Videos: Grants Menu & Avalon Media Sys in Cloud
Date: Wed, 06 Jun 2018 16:25:00 -0400
New videos are available from CNI’s spring 2018 membership meeting:

In Making Library Contributions Visible: The “Grants Menu” at UVic Libraries, Lisa Goddard of the University of Victoria discusses a suite of services developed by the library for grant funded projects, including a digital asset management system, metadata expertise, web hosting and discovery, exhibit building software, copyright consultation, open access publishing, research data management, and digitization services. The grants “menu” enables researchers to quickly understand the variety of services and contributions that the library can offer to strengthen a funding application, and it underscores to administrators the library’s value as a university research support.
A panel of speakers share their experiences with a recent pilot to run the open source Avalon Media System as a subscription software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering in Avalon Media System Update: Piloting Avalon in the Cloud. The panel explores various aspects of the pilot, including an overview of pilot partner use cases, what went well and challenges encountered with pilot testing, and what is needed to make Avalon work for institutions interested in purchasing Avalon as a SaaS going forward.
