  • Disaster Recovery Planning and Business Continuity for Informaticians
    • First page: 78
      Abstract: Digital Library Perspectives, Volume 33, Issue 2, May 2017.
      Purpose Currently, many informatics and analytics projects are developed in an "organic" manner. As such, this often circumvents formal project management principles and practices. The decision to do this is determined by organizational factors; however, even in an informal environment, ensuring that adequate disaster recovery and business continuity plans are in place for all mission-critical applications is vital to ensure the long term survival prospects of an organization in the event of a disaster. Design/methodology/approach By adapting the principles and techniques of traditional disaster recovery and business continuity planning, an informatician can develop plans that integrate the requirements of their projects into a larger, organization-wide plan to recover from incidents and ensure continuity of business operations. Findings The use of disaster recovery planning as well as business continuity planning can help ensure the long-term viability of informatics and analytics projects within an organization. Originality/value Most business continuity planning is focused on projects that are formally developed and relatively large in scale. This article applies these principles and practices to informatics and analytics projects that are developed informally and managed casually. Though example, the point is demonstrated that more traditional disaster recovery and continuity practices can and should be applied in this less-formal environment.

  • The etymology of user experience
    • First page: 82
      Abstract: Digital Library Perspectives, Volume 33, Issue 2, May 2017.
      Purpose The psychology of user experience is sometimes overlooked in favor of assumptions based on didactic principles that don't apply to the use of the web. This column explores the implications of some psychological principles that bear on user interface design and the implications those principles may have for the digital library. Design/methodology/approach This is a regular column - a literature review was completed and incorporated into the text. Findings Common perceptual biases, particularly related to our perception of the material world, heavily influence our interaction with web user interfaces. Aligning web user interface design with our hard wired expectations regarding physical space and material objects has the possibility of increasing the effectiveness of those interfaces. Originality/value The psychology of user design is an important area of concern, and should be considered by libraries engaged in the provisioning of online content and services. This has not been extensively explored in the literature, and these principles are rarely adhered to in the library community. The primary example given that seems to have successfully taken this seriously in the commercial sector is Google's promotion of a recommendation called Material Design.

  • Finding access and digital preservation solutions for a digitized oral
           history project: a case study
    • First page: 88
      Abstract: Digital Library Perspectives, Volume 33, Issue 2, May 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to examine affordable access and digital preservation solutions for digital collections developed by under-resourced small and mid-size cultural heritage organizations. Design/methodology/approach The paper presents a case study of Jeffco Stories, a collection of digitized oral histories created by the Jefferson County Public Library in Colorado. Findings – This paper describes how the Jefferson County Public Library undertook a migration project of its oral history digital collection into an open access platform, Omeka and selected DuraCloud as a hosted digital preservation service. Findings This paper describes how the Jefferson County Public Library undertook a migration project of its oral history digital collection into an open access platform, Omeka and selected DuraCloud as a hosted digital preservation service. Research limitations/implications As a case study, this paper is limited to one institution’s experience with selecting access and digital preservation solutions. Practical implications This paper is relevant to librarians and archivists who are exploring access and preservation solutions for digital collections and to those who are considering migrating to open access content management systems and cloud-based digital preservation solutions. Originality/value This paper presents a case of a public library and the challenges in finding affordable access and digital preservation solutions for small digital collections.

  • Cultivate, assess, advocate, implement, and sustain: a five-point plan for
           successful digital preservation collaborations
    • First page: 100
      Abstract: Digital Library Perspectives, Volume 33, Issue 2, May 2017.
      Purpose For libraries with limited resources, digital preservation can seem like a daunting responsibility. Forming partnerships can help build collective knowledge and maximize combined resources to achieve digital preservation goals. Design/methodology/approach In 2015, librarians from four Montana institutions formed the Digital Preservation Working Group (DPWG), a collaboration to increase digital preservation efforts statewide. The group’s immediate goals were to promote digital preservation best practices at each individual institution, as well as to learn about and support each other’s work. The group’s long-term goal was to implement a shared digital preservation service that would fill gaps in existing digital preservation efforts. Findings Beyond the cost savings gained by sharing a digital preservation service, the members of DPWG benefitted from shared knowledge and expertise gained during the partnership. The group also functioned as a sounding board as each institution built its digital preservation program, and it became a system of support when challenges arose. Practical implications This article proposes a five-point plan for creating digital preservation partnerships: (1) Cultivate a foundation of knowledge and identify a shared vision; (2) Assess the current digital preservation landscape at each institution; (3) Advocate for the value of digital preservation activities; (4) Implement shared digital preservation services; (5) Sustain group activities and establish structures for ongoing support. Originality/value The activities of DPWG provide a model for institutions seeking to collaborate to meet digital preservation challenges. This article demonstrates that by implementing a structured plan, institutions can build and sustain digital preservation partnerships, thus positioning themselves to achieve digital preservation success.

  • Archivematica outside the box: piloting a common approach to digital
           preservation at the Five Colleges
    • First page: 117
      Abstract: Digital Library Perspectives, Volume 33, Issue 2, May 2017.
      Purpose This work provides a report on adopting a consortial model of collaboration toward understanding digital preservation practice. Design/methodology/approach This work provides a case study detailing the work and outcomes of a digital preservation pilot project undertaken by the Five College Libraries between 2014 and 2015. Findings Digital preservation is a broad endeavor and rapidly developing facet of digital collections and institutional repositories, yet it is often an area that isn’t fully understood or implemented by many libraries and archives, largely because institutions lack the necessary resources to do it alone. Working across institutional lines provides a possible solution to overcoming resource limitations and general challenges for pursuing robust digital preservation programs. Research limitations/implications Findings reported in this work are based on a limited scope pilot project. Several questions laid out during the pilot remain unanswered at its close. Originality/value This paper provides insight into an experimental process rarely reported in library and information science literature. The goal of the paper is to provide a reference point for institutions pursuing a consortial approach to the challenges of applied digital preservation practice.

  • The state of affairs with digital preservation at ARL member libraries: a
           survey and analysis of policy
    • First page: 137
      Abstract: Digital Library Perspectives, Volume 33, Issue 2, May 2017.
      Purpose Digital preservation is a term that is a bit of an enigma to many people both in and out of the digital arena, but will undoubtedly be important in an increasingly all-digital world. The underlying work relating to digital preservation is essential to the long-term care of digital media, but who is charged with addressing this type of work, and can policy serve to structure and also reflect this complex concept? The main point of interest for this study is to examine existing digital preservation policies at Association of Research Libraries (ARL) institutions and analyze the content of the policies. The purpose will be to determine if these policies are able to provide a robust framework for true digital preservation work at this point in time. First, an introduction is made to provide the structure of the study and background. Next a literature review is provided, followed by an outline of the methods and results of the study, and finally a conclusion with recommendations for future research. Design/methodology/approach An analysis of digital preservation policy at ARL institutions, with recommendations for further research Findings This study was an attempt to highlight the current state of digital preservation policies, reviewing both the positive elements, as well as the shortcomings of policies at ARL member institutions. The call for policies made for this study resulted in finding that thirty-two (26%) ARL institutions currently have a digital preservation policy in place, from the institutions that responded (58% response rate). Twenty-three out of forty institutions without a current policy indicate there is, or will be, work to complete a policy within the coming year (2016-2017). A call can be made at this time for more in-depth research and analysis of the policies for further inquiry. Both effective (University of Houston, University of Florida, York University) and ineffective (Colorado State University, University of Texas, Virginia Tech) digital preservation policies were discovered during the course of the study, with many policies falling somewhere in the middle. Many institutions provided a good template for digital preservation but lack the details for how this work would be addressed and who would be completing such work. Research limitations/implications Limited to ARL member institutions at the time of the study (January 2016) Originality/value There is currently a gap in analysis and research of digital preservation policies. This is an area of active policy creation for many institutions, and will likely be a growing area for researchers to examine.

  • veraPDF: building an open source, industry supported PDF/A validator for
           cultural heritage institutions
    • First page: 156
      Abstract: Digital Library Perspectives, Volume 33, Issue 2, May 2017.
      Purpose This article describes the development of the veraPDF validator as it is influenced by the ongoing standardisation process, cultural heritage organisations and other, similar open source software. The objective of veraPDF is to build the definitive, open source validator for all parts and conformance levels of the PDF/A specification for archival PDF documents. The project is led by the Open Preservation Foundation and the PDF Association and is funded by the EU PREFORMA project. Design/methodology/approach veraPDF is designed to meet the needs of the digital preservation community and the PDF industry alike. The technology is subject to the review of and acceptance by the PDF Association’s PDF Validation Technical Working Group, including many who participate in the relevant ISO working groups. Cultural heritage institutions are collecting ever-increasing volumes of digital information, which they have a mandate to preserve for the long-term. However, in many cases they need to ensure their content has been produced to the specifications of a standard file format, as well as their own acceptance criteria in their institutional policy. Findings With the rise of knowledge about processes and policies, cultural heritage institutions are influencing the production and development of digital preservation software tools. The product development funded by the PREFORMA project shows how such cooperation can benefit the community as a whole. Originality/value This article describes the value of an open approach to developing a PDF/A validator for cultural heritage organisations.

  • A survey of digital information literacy (DIL) among academic library and
           information professionals
    • First page: 166
      Abstract: Digital Library Perspectives, Volume 33, Issue 2, May 2017.
      Purpose The key purpose of this study is to explore DIL possessed by SVU library and information professionals. It also tries to identify the various types of DIL and to find out any constraints affecting the related skills and competencies of those professionals. Design/methodology/approach a quantitative research methodology was adopted in the form of a survey, which was undertaken from February to March 2016. As stated by Kerlinger (1986), the survey research is a useful instrument for educational fact-finding, and a means by which much information can be acquired from the study’s population. The survey instrument was a self-administrated questionnaire, which was adopted for the data collection. A pilot questionnaire was first sent to a small random sample of the respondents, with feedback being used to fine tune the final questionnaire. The targeted population of this study is the library and information professionals (n=127) belonging to SVU libraries that spread over its three provinces/campuses: The Qena campus (number of libraries=22), the Luxor campus (n=3) and the Hurghada campus (n=2). Those library and information professionals are described to be librarians, library assistants, and library directors. Out of 127 questionnaires, 101 (79.5%) responses were received. To collect data, the study used a questionnaire, which has six sections reflecting the research objectives of the study. Findings The findings showed that over two-thirds of SVU library and information professionals are males, and almost one-third of them are females. A large number of the respondents are aged between 26 to 40 years, and most of them were found to be bachelor's degree holders. The discipline of nearly two-thirds of the respondents was library science. Regarding the respondents’ professional profile, the study also showed that a large number of the them were librarians, followed by library assistants and library managers, and nearly half of them had work experience of more than ten years, followed by those who have work experience for 6-7 years. This study showed that there is a significant relationship between some of the respondents’ demographic characteristics (age and education) and their DIL. The respondents’ gender had no impact on their DIL. The study also showed that there is a significant relationship between all the respondents’ professional characteristics, particularly their discipline, followed by job title, then work experience and their DIL. Regarding the level of the respondents’ knowledge of the types of computers, a large number of them showed that their knowledge of using mobile devices, followed by PCs, workstations Portable Media Players (PMP)/Digital Audio Player (DAP), and Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) was, at least, high. The respondents’ knowledge of the other types ranged between moderate to non-proficient. A large number of the respondents showed that their proficiency in using output devices, followed by input devices, processing devices, storage devices, and communication devices was also, at least, high. While the largest number of the respondents showed that their proficiency in application software was, at least, high, the largest number of them showed that their proficiency in system software was moderate. Regarding the respondents’ knowledge-based competencies, as well as skills-based competencies, especially when these competencies related to the integration of ICTs into the library work, this study showed that such kind of competencies possessed by SVU library and information professionals ranged between competent and somewhat competent. Regarding the challenges affecting the respondents’ acquiring skills and related competencies, the study revealed that the lack of funds, training, physical facilities, the connection to the Internet, subscribing to e-databases, lack of time, as well as challenges related to SVU library system regulations, were significant to them. Other challenges, such as the lack of incorporating and exploiting the new technologies and products into LIS educators’ services were also significant to them, as well as challenges related to psychological barriers, a lack of current curricula in the area of ICTs, and a shortage of experienced LIS counselors. This study reached conclusions that SVU library and information professionals should be qualified and adapted to ICTs and related competencies. They need to be provided with sufficient training workshops to update their knowledge regarding the use and integration of technology in their library work. Research limitations/implications This study investigates DIL among library and information professionals in one of the Egyptian universities; SVU. Any findings and conclusions resulted from this study are limited in scope to only the library professionals of this university. Such topic has limited previous research. The size and homogeneity of the sample limit the generalizability of this study. Practical implications The study aims to investigate DIL acquired by SVU library and information professionals. The potential results of this study would be useful for library schools, library associations and other pertinent authorities for the planning of training programs and courses. The findings may also be helpful for library educators to develop curricula that meet the needs of library and information professionals. Originality/value This study is to be one of the few studies conducted on this topic in Egypt. The literature on the topic of this research revealed that extensive research has been undertaken on DIL in higher education in the developed countries, but there is a very limited research conducted on this topic in Egypt and similar developing countries, particularly among academic library and information professionals. No definition for the concept dig...

  • Evaluating social media presence: a practical application of big data and
           analytics in information organizations
    • First page: 2
      Abstract: Digital Library Perspectives, Volume 33, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this article is to provide a practical example of how big data and analytics can help answer questions related to a relevant problem many libraries and information organizations have: how to evaluate the effectiveness of social media efforts. Design/methodology/approach Drawing upon a number of disciplines, including marketing, consumer decision theory, and evidence-based practice, the utility of big data and analytics is applied to a practical application in libraries and information organizations: the evaluation of social media presence. Findings There are a multitude of techniques (social network analysis, statistical analysis, geographic coding) that can be used as part of a project to evaluate the effectiveness of social media presence. Each technique provides its own "lens" on the data. By combining techniques, powerful analyses can be performed. Originality/value Practical applications of big data and analytics to problems in libraries and information organizations are still being developed. This article provides one perspective on how this emerging area of study can help in understanding and improving the perception of products and services in information organizations.

  • Cloud computing and virtual machines in LIS education: options and
    • First page: 14
      Abstract: Digital Library Perspectives, Volume 33, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this article is to consider how and why virtual machines and cloud computing and related development environments built on cloud-based resources may be used to support and enhance the technological elements of LIS education. Design/methodology/approach Based on analysis of available technologies and relevant applications Findings Cloud computing and virtualization offer a basis for creating a robust computing infrastructure for LIS education. Practical implications In the context of LIS education, cloud computing is relevant in two respects. First, many important library and archival services already rely heavily on cloud-based infrastructures, and in the near future cloud computing is likely to define a much larger part of the computing environment on which libraries and archives rely. Second, cloud computing affords a highly flexible and efficient environment that is ideal for learning about virtual machines, operating systems, and a wide variety of applications. What is more important, it constitutes an environment for teaching and learning that is vastly superior to the ones that currently support most LIS degree programs. From a pedagogical perspective, the key aspect of teaching and learning in the cloud environment is the virtual machine (VM). So, the article focuses a significant portion of its attentions on questions related to the deployment and use of virtual machines and Linux containers (LXC), within and without cloud-based infrastructures, as means of learning about computer systems, applications, and networking and achieving an understanding of essential aspects of both cloud computing and virtual machine environments. Originality/value Based on a search of available literatures in computer science and library and information science, the paper has no counterparts.

  • The eBethArké Syriac digital library: a case study
    • First page: 40
      Abstract: Digital Library Perspectives, Volume 33, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose The eBetharké Syriac Digital Library Portal is a collaborative effort between the libraries at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; and the Beth Mardutho Syriac Institute, a traditional library of texts; to create a specialized digital library collection online. This digital library features content in and relating to Syriac, an Aramaic dialect spoken in the 1st century A.D. and for which a great deal of historically significant documents were written during the period. Design/methodology/approach This task required effort and research on multiple fronts, including software development; collaboration on technical, interpersonal, and policy-based levels; and in overcoming challenges related to the predominant computing platforms installed and in use by potential users of this digital library. Findings This collaboration provided significant new challenges and learning experiences among the staff who worked on this project and provides a base upon which our digital library platforms can diversify and be more culturally aware. Originality/value The project is unique in that it is believed to the first production-level, digital preservation-specific Syriac digital library of its kind. It supports the display of metadata and descriptive details for digital library objects not just in English, but in Arabic and Syriac languages as well, where appropriate

  • Creating history: a case study in making oral histories more accessible in
           the digital age
    • First page: 48
      Abstract: Digital Library Perspectives, Volume 33, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose The University of Wisconsin Law School Library sought to create easily searchable oral histories by partnering with the University of Kentucky and the University of Wisconsin Oral History Program. Through this partnership, a digital archive of fully searchable and indexed oral histories with links to relevant articles, Library of Congress keywords, summaries and maps is being created, giving users the ability to delve into the Law School's history more deeply and with more historical perspective than ever before. Design/methodology/approach The implementation of the Oral History Metadata Sychronizer (OHMS) and the development of a daily workflow for adding University of Wisconsin Law School oral histories to the program is closely examined. The pros and cons of the program are discussed as well as the future of the Law School oral histories. Findings The OHMS program is a powerful tool that allows researchers to quickly and easily locate relevant portions of an oral history, saving the time required to review hours of an interview. OHMS also allows archivists and librarians to better organize and catalog each oral history by providing important metadata tools that provide context and background on each unique oral history. Originality/value The University of Wisconsin Law School is the first law school to implement the OHMS program in concert with an institutional repository. The program, which is free and open-source, may be of great value to historians, archivists and non-profits who wish to make their content more visible and more searchable.

  • A case study in institutional repository content curation: a collaborative
           partner approach to preserving and sustaining digital scholarship
    • First page: 63
      Abstract: Digital Library Perspectives, Volume 33, Issue 1, February 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this case study is to illustrate how a university library collaborated with a specific college in order to preserve scholarship with a sustainable approach. The practical process described is recommended for increasing content submissions in a newly established institutional repository. Of the eight colleges at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), the Honors College was selected as a case study for a library-college collaboration on content curation for the institutional repository that is maintained by MTSU’s Walker Library. Design/methodology/approach Concept of shared and divided responsibilities for the upload, maintenance and sustainability of institutional repository submissions based on a particular case study and aided with literature on digital publishing, library publishing and preservation research. Findings The partner approach, the sharing and division of responsibilities, is instrumental to the growth and sustainability of a library publishing program and for the preservation of university scholarship. Practical implications The (college) partner approach not only educates campus units about a new resource (e.g. institutional repository), but also encourages campus units to rethink other current and outdated practices that need to adapt to technological changes that support the unit and its students. This approach will help the library with campus outreach after an institutional repository is implemented and offers guidance on a collaborative approach to repository submission growth. Originality/value This paper suggests a (college) partner approach that mutually benefits the College and its students, departments, and the library that maintains the institutional repository on behalf of the university. During the implementation process of this case study, an ADA/accessibility compliance issue of repository items surfaced and allowed for a new course of action to be taken campus wide which adds to the originality of this case study.
