Copyright and Digital Collections: A Data Driven Roadmap for Rights Statement SuccessThis presentation focuses on data driven research from both a survey and in person interviews to articulate a roadmap for digital collection managers to navigate copyright challenges stemming from the adoption of standardized rights statements and licenses. Barriers to implementation of the RightsStatements.org statements and Creative Commons licenses will be described, including methods to remove such objections to using the standardized rights statements. Additionally, the research will outline the workflows of institutions that have been successful in the application of RightsStatements.org statements, what barriers they met, and the methods that were used to overcome the challenges they faced.
This document is a supplement to the University of Cincinnati's Power Session workshop presented at Data Day 2019 by Richard Johansen and Mark Chalmers. The goal of this document is to reproduce the step-by-step instructions of the Power Session which demonstrated how to create interactive maps of social vulnerability at the county level. Familiarity with GitHub, R and RStudio environments are highly recommended, but not required to follow this tutorial. For a more in-depth explanation as to how the data was retrieved, cleaned, and manipulated, please refer to the full R script called Mapping_Social_Vulnerability.R located in the Scripts folder of the GitHub repository.
A conversation between two friends who are not musicians and whose personal histories could hardly be more different. Through a series of conversations we explored those journeys, compared and contrasted our stories, and discussed just why this music affects us so deeply. We discussed specific musicians in terms of whether we liked, did not like, or were indifferent to their music, and why we either agreed or not. In these conversations we posed various questions to each other, hoping to discover and articulate certain essences that we might share. One thing we agreed upon up front is that we are neither musicians nor music critics. In fact, we’re not convinced that the field of music criticism is even a valid endeavor. Music description and personal reaction, however, is another matter. In our conversations we tried to describe our reactions to specific musicians and “schools” of music, without labeling the music as “good” or “lousy”. You will see that this doesn’t prevent us from disagreeing and disagreeing in spirited fashion, while always trying to focus on why our personal reaction is what it is.
This document details our process for creating a service catalog for UC Libraries Research and Data Services and our efforts towards offering data science services. In this document, we identify our gaps in knowledge and expertise while making recommendations for filling these gaps.
