    • Authors: Ingeborg Versprille, Marian Lefferts, Cristina Dondi
      Abstract:
      DOI : 10.12685/027.7-2-1-50 The Consortium of European Research Libraries (CERL, http://www.cerl.org) is a membership organisation, involving an active community of c. 190 libraries each with a keen focus on cultural heritage in the form of early printed books and manuscripts. Collaboratively, CERL member libraries and researchers in the field develop products and services. These include the HPB, the CERL Thesaurus, MEI and the CERL Portal.

  • ICPSR: A Consortial Model to Advance and Expand Social and Behavioral
           Research

    • Authors: Jared Lyle
      Abstract:
      DOI : 10.12685/027.7-2-1-49 The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) was founded over 50 years ago "to further the development of research in political science" (Miller 1963:11). Since that summer of 1962, the scope and range of services ICPSR offers has expanded significantly to encompass the wider social and behavioral research community, and from a handful of data collections to thousands. With over 750 consortial members from around the world, ICPSR is now a leader in preserving, curating, and providing access to scientific data so others can reuse the data and validate research findings. Much of the success of ICPSR can be traced back to the consortial model upon which the organization was founded, with members providing funding, input, and a sense of community. This article describes the history and current status of the consortium, and discusses upcoming challenges and opportunities.

  • The Uncoordinated Potential of Libraries to Achieve Open Access Now: How
           the Transition to Open Access Could be Accelerated by Libraries Working
           Together

    • Authors: Christian Gutknecht
      Abstract:
      DOI : 10.12685/027.7-2-1-48 The last ten years have shown, that Open Access is not only a vision, but has become real. Libraries are in a good position to push Open Access even further, as they currently fully pay the production costs of the traditional subscription model. SCOAP3 demonstrates that coordination among libraries is not unlikely and could lead to more Open Access immediately. Die letzten zehn Jahren haben gezeigt, dass Open Access nicht nur eine Vision ist, sondern tatsächlich funktioniert. Bibliotheken könnten Open Access ganz zum Durchbruch verhelfen, da sie zurzeit vollständig für die Produktionskosten beim Subskriptionsmodell aufkommen. SCOAP3 zeigt, dass die Koordination zwischen Bibliotheken möglich ist und sofort zu mehr Open Access führen kann.

  • Vor welchen Veränderungen steht die schweizerische
           Verbundslandschaft'

    • Authors: Karsten Schuldt, Rudolf Mumenthaler
      Abstract:
      DOI : 10.12685/027.7-2-1-47 Die schweizerische Verbundslandschaft steht vor Umbrüchen. Grund sind technische und politische Entwicklungen, Diskussionen und Entscheidungen in Bibliotheken und Bibliotheksverbünden sowie die Veränderungen im Umfeld von Bibliotheken im Allgemeinen. Dieser Text stellt Argumente zusammen und fordert zur Diskussion dieser Situation auf. Bibliotheken sollten sich darüber klar werden, welche Verbünde, mit welchen Aufgaben und welchen Steuerungsformen, sie in Zukunft haben wollen. In Switzerland, the landscape of union catalogues and their hosting consortia has recently been in turmoil. Technical and political changes, discussions and decisions in libraries and library consortia, as well as the evolution of libraries at large have led to this situation. The following text summarizes arguments, but is also a call for discussion in which Swiss libraries should elaborate positions concerning future consortia and union catalogues, their responsibilities and governance.
