How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Conference Paper
Full-text available
A primary goal for collection management is assessing the relative value of continuing information resources. A variety of new environmental factors and data are pertinent to relative value. One of the emerging metrics is the degree to which the articles within a subscription journal are also available open access (OA). That OA level directly affec...
Article
Full-text available
Research libraries will continue to be affected by rapid and transformative changes in information technology and the networked environment for the foreseeable future. The pace and direction of these changes will profoundly challenge libraries and their staffs to respond effectively. This paper presents the results of a survey that was designed to...
Article
Full-text available
Library catalogs have represented stagnant technology for close to twenty years. Moving toward a next-generation catalog, North Carolina State University (NCSU) Libraries purchased Endeca's Information Access Platform to give its users relevance-ranked keyword search results and to leverage the rich metadata trapped in the MARC record to enhance co...
Article
Full-text available
Authors in different disciplines exhibit very different behaviours on the so-called ‘green’ road to open access, i.e. self-archiving. This study looks at the self-archiving behaviour of authors publishing in leading journals in six social science disciplines. It tests the hypothesis that authors are self-archiving according to the norms of their re...

Stevan Harnad's group and ours' have reported several manual measurements in order to evaluate the accuracy of Chawki Hajjem's robot program, which has been extensively used by Harnad's group. Our group has now prepared an overall metaanalysis of the manual results.

Article
Full-text available
This is a second signal-detection analysis of the accuracy of a robot in detecting open access (OA) articles (by checking by hand how many of the articles the robot tagged OA were really OA, and vice versa). A first analysis, on a smaller sample (Biology: 100 OA, 100 non-OA), had found a detectability (d') of 2.45 and bias of 0.52 (hits 93%, false...
Article
Full-text available
A solid theoretical foundation has been built over the years exploring the bibliographic work and in developing cataloging rules and practices to describe the work in the traditional catalog. With the increasing prevalence of multiple manifestations of serial titles, as well as tools that automate discovery and retrieval, bibliographic control of s...
Article
Full-text available
While many authors believe that their work has a greater research impact if it is freely available, studies to demonstrate that impact are few. This study looks at articles in four disciplines at varying stages of adoption of open access—philosophy, political science, electrical and electronic engineering and mathematics—to see if they have a great...
Article
Library Web sites have grown in size and complexity over the last several years without a corresponding growth in the sophistication of the underlying technology. Web managers are struggling to control their sites using only the primitive tool of HTML. Under this constraint, it is hard for the library to deliver information with multiple access poi...
Article
For many years, catalogs have served as the gateway to library collections; our collections are inaccessible without them. This picture is rapidly changing with the current explosion of online resources. The new gateway is the World Wide Web. Should we attempt to accommodate the new resources in the old gateway? Libraries have struck various balanc...

In the larger context of a project on using spatial information and GIS for information search at libraries, we are now focusing on how to make research data discoverable and accessible. The two central ideas are (1) to complement search by author and theme with search by location(s) a data set is about, and (2) to link publications to the data and vice versa. http://spatial.ucsb.edu/research/spatial-discovery
