Pre-Recorded Project Briefing Series

May 2024

This edition guide overviews the nine contributed videos in the May 2024 edition of CNI’s Pre-Recorded Project Briefing Series.

Two briefings provide updates on open infrastructure initiatives:
Several briefings overview work in digital curation and repositories:
  • At the CNI Spring 2021 Meeting, the University of Pittsburgh Library System (ULS) described the launch of its digital preservation program. In Getting There from Here: A Path to Preserve Digital Collections, ULS staff share an update on that work and their experiences integrating their Islandora and Preservica instances, including the workflow to transfer archival scans to Preservica.
  • Hyku for Consortia: Providing and Sustaining Open-Source Repositories at Scale shares an update on the Hyku for Consortia Project, which provides an affordable digital repository solution for over thirty libraries across four consortia and now must coordinate projects and development across diverse user communities.
  • Many academic libraries have developed institutional data repositories or are considering the role of an existing institutional repository in ongoing data stewardship. With the release of US federal government documents such as the Desirable Characteristics of Data Repositories (DC-DR) and the Nelson Memo, there are many open questions about the role of these institutional systems in the evolving policy landscape of data curation. The Data Curation Network (DCN) is Championing Institutional Data Sharing Efforts and received funding to support this work at the upcoming Summit for Academic Institutional Readiness in Data Sharing (STAIRS).  
The Share Family, an international library initiative, implements linked open data and enhances library workflows and services. The Share Family: Cooperation and Interconnection for a Sustainable Linked Open Data Ecosystem, overviews the linked data ecosystem and related benefits, such as cooperative cataloging, advanced metadata management tools, and discovery portals.
A few briefings examine current and potential impacts of AI and ML on research, teaching, and learning.
Lastly, The University of Sydney Library successfully transformed and launched a digital presence that prioritizes the user experience. Creating a Client-Centered, Integrated, and Flexible Academic Library Website shares how they streamlined and created a unified source of information and integrated key systems like Alma and LibCal. Additionally, they collaborated with First Nations staff and students to ensure a culturally safe and welcoming digital library experience.

We thank the presenters for sharing their work with our community. Please contact them directly with questions or for further discussion. If you are interested in contributing to the next edition, the call for proposals will be released shortly.
