New exhibits:

in the Bay Reading Room:

the collecting net, 1926: "Cooperation in Research";

 

in the Library lobby display area:

marine animal models in Research, reflected in scientific literature

 

The Lillie Library has two small exhibit areas, both of which have just been refreshed for the coming season:

 

 

We are delighted to repurpose the old Lillie building 1st floor wood and glass display case/bulletin board as an exhibition case in the Bay Reading Room.

 

The Volume 1, Number 2 (1926) issue of The Collecting Net has been printed out in full from the Biodiversity Heritage Library and is on display.

 

The Collecting Net in its earliest iteration (1926-1953) was the news and information go-to for the MBL summer community. The early issues of this newspaper are fascinating to read, and in particular one article in this issue "Cooperation in Research" (partially displayed below), suggests that by opening up your laboratory to visitors one day each summer, you change the whole tenor of the Laboratory from a place where work just gets done to a place where people communicate and  learn from each other to move science progress ahead even further.

 

 

This article in full may be viewed via the MBLWHOI Library partner, the Biodiversity Heritage Library:

http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/item/55217#page/16/mode/1up

The Biodiversity Heritage Library recognizes its 10th year in 2016. The MBLWHOI Library is a founding partner of the BHL, and about 5000 volumes from our collections have been scanned into this invaluable freely accessible resource. ( www.biodiversitylibrary.org )

 

***

 

The lobby area display, which rotates different examples of science literature, now has a number of articles highlighted mostly from the MBL publication the Biological Bulletin about past research on common Woods Hole region marine animal models. The use of local marine animals in scientific research is a main reason why the MBL was, is, and will be here for many years to come. The Atlantic Ocean waters of this region are dynamic meeting points between the Atlantic, the Gulf Stream, Buzzards Bay, and Massachusetts Bay. These bodies of water all exert particular influences upon one another, resulting in part in the extreme diversity of marine life. The articles on display can also be seen here, through the Biodiversity Heritage Library links below.

These photos from the WHOI Archives show Thanksgiving aboard the WHOI Research Vessel Chain 54 years ago…at port in Monaco, with a number of distinguished guests!

In November of 1961, WHOI Research Vessel Chain was scheduled to be in port in the Principality of Monaco on the Thanksgiving holiday, along with a very renowned guest, the explorer Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau.

While the Chain was in Naples, Italy right before the holiday, Captain of the Chain, E. H. Hiller decided to invite the Royal Family of Monaco Prince Rainer and Princess Grace, and their children aboard the vessel to join the Chain crew and Captain Cousteau for a “New England Old Fashioned Thanksgiving Dinner”, complete with “roast turkey and all the fixins, including cranberry sauce, and mince pie”!

 

 

(l-r) Arriving at the R/V Chain, Princess Grace, Prince Albert, Princess Caroline, and Prince Rainier of Monaco.

Unable to prepare for a formal “State Visit” on the “hard working Research Ship,” Captain Hiller said that “it would be a very informal affair, if you are able to come aboard. But the food will be excellent.” These beautiful holiday photographs tell the rest of the story.

The decision to end a subscription is based upon a number of factors including but not limited to: low use, high cost per use, limited interest as expressed in the 2012 survey of MBL and WHOI scientists and/or direct feedback from the community, and funding constraints for the 2014 MBLWHOI Library budget.

 

Online titles cancelled

 

  • Journal of Petroleum Geology
  • FEBS Journal
  • Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology
  • Journal of Mathematical Biology
  • Bulletin of Mathematical Biology
  • Journal of Plant Physiology

-Please note: All the above titles still are accessible online from approximately 1997-2012, as well as any content published as open access.

 

Print titles cancelled

 

  • Journal of the American Medical Association (current print issues available at the Falmouth Public Library)
  • New England Journal of Medicine (current print issues available at the Falmouth Public Library)
  • Bulletin of the Canadian Society of Petroleum Geology

The below 3 titles are now online only

 

  • Ecology, Ecological Applications, and Ecological Monographs      
  • American Journal of Physics 
  • Marine Ecology Progress Series

 

Below is a link to the approximately 900 science journals the MBLWHOI Library subscribes to on behalf of the Woods Hole Scientific Community. These titles represent the broad subject matter and interdisciplinary nature of much of the scientific research conducted across Woods Hole. Most of these titles are subscribed to individually, and many are from multi-title packages such as the JSTOR backfiles (older content) and the BioOne current title list.

In addition to the above list of current subscriptions, thousands of additional journal titles are available through open access publishers such as PLoSBioMed Central, through open access publishing programs of commercial and not for profit publishing houses, as well as vetted portals such as the DOAJ Directory of Open Access Journals.

 

 To serve the needs of our library users when we do not hold a resource you are looking for, the MBLWHOI Library also has cooperative agreement relationships with many university libraries in New England through the Boston Library Consortium (which includes the MIT Library), and we have also recently developed a reciprocal relationship with the University of Chicago Library. These mutually beneficial arrangements mean that books and journal articles which are not held by the MBLWHOI Library and are needed by our researchers can be made available through interlibrary loan services. Conversely the MBLWHOI Library's unique collection is shared in this way with scientists throughout New England and beyond.

 

The MBLWHOI Library is also a founding partner of the BHL Biodiversity Heritage Library . The BHL has digitized over 12,500 primarily out of copyright (pre-1923) volumes from our collection, which is a part of close to 50,000,000 digitized pages of early scientific biodiversity literature which constitute the BHL. Through this Encyclopedia of Life associated project, digitized versions of volumes collected here over 100 years ago are freely available to scientists anywhere.     

 

The MBLWHOI Library is currently embarking upon a comprehensive project to carefully examine our print collection vis-à-vis the current scientific literature needs of the Woods Hole scientific community. This project will result in a more relevant print collection designed to support our electronic collections, more efficient use of limited space, and a better understanding of the collection which has served Woods Hole scientists for over 125 years.

mbl community archives project

opens for MBL's 125th, Summer 2013

 

An exciting opening to the MBL Community Archives Project took place on Friday, May 25th in the Grass Reading Room and down the hall in the new archives intake studio Lillie Rm 228 in the MBLWHOI Library. The MBL Community Archives is a community-generated collection of photographs, video reminiscences, and science memorabilia, all a part of the new History of the MBL website

With your help, we're building MBL's digital family album!

 

The main point this project would like to convey to MBL STAFF and the entire MBL and WOODS HOLE COMMUNITY is that everyone’s photographs are welcome to be included!

 

Everyone’s stories and memories of their life at MBL are welcome to be informally told to our graduate students who are running our video recording studio. Anyone whose life has included the MBL is encouraged to participate!

 

MBL Community Archives

Any photos and stories of your MBL life are welcome!

 

Any photos are welcome! Sometimes the stories they tell are invaluable.

 

While some may think that their photos or stories are not important enough for inclusion, all we are looking for is photographs with a connection to MBL ! Remember, we are building MBL's family album! Everyone is encouraged to participate!

 

Friday May 25th was the first day all of the collaboration partners: MBLWHOI Library, Arizona State University Center for Biology and Society, Dartmouth College, and the University of Massachusetts were together in one place (as opposed to email and tele conferencing), to discuss the planning and development of the Community Archives Project.

 

We were pleased that members of the MBL staff and the larger MBL community also attended this open event.  We began in the Grass Reading Room with an open discussion about this summer’s Community Archives project, and the importance of capturing and digitizing-archiving the images and memories of  the MBL Community before this rich history is lost.

dr. cornelia clapp, the mbl, and the biodiversity heritage library...on this women's history month

 

Cornelia Clapp was a biologist, professor at Mount Holyoke College, MBL Trustee, and Librarian of the MBL Library at the turn of the last century. The MBLWHOI Library has worked recently with our partner Biodiversity Heritage Library to develop a collection within the BHL called Women in Natural History. One element of this collection is the 1899 doctoral dissertation of Cornelia Clapp: The lateral line system of Batrachus tau. (toadfish) , published by the University of Chicago in 1899. 

 

After her passing in 1934, Dr. Frank Lillie, the University of Chicago biologist and second Diector of the MBL wrote in memorial to Cornelia Clapp:

 

“Dr. Cornelia M. Clapp was always a beneficent presence at the Marine Biological Laboratory from the day of its opening in 1888. In the first annual report her name appears as investigator. From that time until 1934, the year of her death, very few indeed were the sessions not graced by her presence. Enthusiasm and loyal devotion, humor, modesty and wisdom combined to make her a unique personality, respected and beloved by all her associates...Miss Clapp was elected trustee in 1910 and served for the remainder of her life. I have been asked to write a few lines concerning her relationship to the Laboratory as a trustee. But indeed it was impossible that this official relationship should increase her devotion to the ideals of the laboratory in scientific research or organization. Her election was a recognition of this devotion, rather than an expectation of getting more. For many years before her election there had been no woman on the Board although the Woman's Education Society of Boston had maintained a seaside laboratory at Annisquam in cooperation with the Boston Society of Natural History from 1880 to 1886, and it was largely through their influence that the Marine Biological Laboratory was established at Woods Hole to take its place. Accordingly there were two women, Miss Susan Minns and Miss Anna D. Phillips, on the first Board of Trustees consisting of nine members only; a third woman, Miss Florence M. Cushing, was shortly afterwards elected to fill a vacancy. But, as these women retired, their places were taken by men, until Miss Clapp's election. The Laboratory should always remember with gratitude the prominent part played by women in the early development of the institution."

 

The MBLWHOI Library recognizes the achievements of women in science, and the role scientists like Dr. Clapp have played in the development of science in Woods Hole and in the world.

MBLWHOI Library winter notes:

Journal Changes for 2013

posted February 8, 2013

 

 

As always, the MBLWHOI Library relies on a wide variety of data sources to determine the most appropriate journal purchases that meet the needs of our scientists.  This includes input from the scientific community in the form of surveys, meetings, discussions and requests in additional to a number of usage statistics.

 Journal prices continue to increase at rates much higher than inflation.  The Library has added 11 new titles to the collection, based upon needs scientists have communicated to the Library Staff. In order to accommodate the 2013 MBLWHOI Library budget as developed by the administrations of MBL and WHOI, difficult serials titles cuts have been implemented. These title cuts were decided through an ongoing consultation program with scientists at MBL and WHOI, and the administrations of both institutions.  Some changes will be implemented over a period of a few months.

 

The Library would like to thank the Biological Bulletin and the MBL for the generous decision made to offer complimentary access to Biological Bulletin to MBLWHOI Library users in 2013.

 

 Contact:  ejournals [at] mbl [dot] edu for specific questions about journal titles.

 

The following 11 titles have been added to the collection in 2013

The below 42 titles have been cancelled; generally, access to years we have previously paid for will continue to be available electronically. 

 

please note: the below changes take place over the next couple of months as publishers update their systems; at any given time the access we have is the access you are able to retrieve through our website/database services.

Below are the 26 exchange titles which have been cancelled in 2013

 

EXCHANGE PROGRAMS are one method that most libraries in the 20th Century used to build up their collections in an economical manner. Starting in the 19th Century postal services would grant discounts to institutions which exchanged published publications to assist in the dissemination of knowledge. MBL exchanged the Biological Bulletin, and WHOI exchanged Oceanus with hundreds of other science institutions worldwide. In 2012, a program which once numbered in a couple of thousand exchange titles had been reduced over the past 2 decades to 26 titles spanning the Americas, Europe, and Asia. The MBL exchange program was administered as a partnership between the Biological Bulletin and the MBLWHOI Library. On the WHOI side of the Library, the partnership was with Oceanus and other WHOI publications.

The MBLWHOI Library thanks the Biological Bulletin and the MBL for this 125 year partnership. We also thank Oceanus and WHOI for over a half century of exchange cooperation. 

 

     

You can extrapolate a number of historical elements from the below list, including MBL's long and unique relationship with Japan, WHOI's long and ground breaking relationship with institutions in the former Soviet Union, MBL's from it's inception relationship with its sister institution Stazione Zoologica di Napoli, and MBL's relationship with other cornerstone institutions in the history of biology such as: the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia, American Philosophical Society, and the American Museum of Natural History.

 

Cancelled exchange titles:

  1. Activity Report; Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn Napoli (print)
  2. American Philosophical Society Yearbook (print)
  3. Annales Zoologici Fennici (print)
  4. Biological Reviews of the Cambridge Philosophical Society (print)

MBLWHOI Library Winter Notes #4 -11

posted December 20, 2012

 

Open Data gathering in the Grass Reading Room during October's Open Access Week

 

#4: Holiday Wishes to You!

 

MBLWHOI Library co-Directors Lisa Raymond of WHOI and Diane Rielinger of MBL

extend the warm wishes of the holiday season, from the Library Staff to the MBL and WHOI research communities.

 

One of the ways we serve WHOI and MBL scientists year round is through the Library Liaison program. Our services are both well defined and defined by whatever your unique needs may be, so please feel free to speak with us at your convenience: library [at] mbl [dot] edu

 

______________________________________

 

#5: Big Data and big science.

 

A note to the community from Data Librarian Liza Coburn:

Data, and the management of data, have long been important areas of interest in the library,

but conversation about data management has increased in all venues. 

Data is quickly becoming a "first class citizen": http://datapub.cdlib.org/?p=1201, and the library is prepared to support this. 

 

Library staff members have been reaching out to the local research community through departmental data management presentations, individual consultations with researchers upon request, and Open Access Week events.

 

 

We have also been communicating the substance of our data related work, especially in the realm of informatics, to the broader research community...through conferences and meetings.  Most recently, MBLWHOI Library Co-Director Lisa Raymond and Data Librarian Liza Coburn attended the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco.  Their experience at AGU was that the informatics program, and the interest and participation in the program, have grown dramatically, and are likely to continue.  This is  a very exciting time for research libraries and librarians. 

 

For more information about data management or data-centric library activities please contact Data Librarian Liza Coburn at ecoburn [at] whoi [dot] edu.  We also invite you to browse our web page on data management: http://www.mblwhoilibrary.org/services/data-management-resources.

#6: The Biological Bulletin in hand and in history.

 

The MBLWHOI Library Bay Reading Room (in the Lillie Building) bookshelves are now home to MBL’s historic Biological Bulletin, WHOI’s Oceanus, and WHOI’s historic Collected Reprints (from 1930-1956). Fifteen or so years ago, the Bay Reading Room was literally bursting at the seams with current journals issues. This current repurposing the shelving space in the reading room follows through on a suggestion made in 2012 by recently retired MBL Director Gary Borisy to make the Bay Reading Room shelved content more Woods Hole-centric.   

 

Bay Reading Room

 

Related note of great interest on the Biological Bulletin...

In 1988 Pamela Clapp Hinkle, now MBL Director of Development wrote The History of the Biological Bulletin which was published in both The Collecting Net, and the Biological Bulletin. You can view this article here: http://www.biolbull.org/content/174/1/1.full.pdf+html

 

______________________________________

 

#7: More open access publications, and the venerable and cutting edge Biological Bulletin.

 

We work to keep you informed about  new open access publications of interest to the Woods Hole community, now online or soon-to-be online:

eLife, peerJ, elementa, and ieee access,

http://elife.elifesciences.org/

https://peerj.com/

http://elementascience.org/

http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/RecentIssue.jsp?punumber=6287639

 

The Library held 2 Open Access events in October. We are committed to open discussion of all points of view related to this, and are pleased to offer any assistance requested from anyone in the Community about the new world of publishing and how it impacts authors. 

 

Did you know?... that in addition to all content being freely available after 12 months, the Biological Bulletin regularly selects a current article to be freely accessible. Also, the WHOI publication Oceanus is always freely accessible online.

#8: Alt-metrics has begun to impact the impact of impact factors.

 

This week (12/18/12) Highwire Press, the publishing platform of many scientific societies, announced “a strategic collaboration with ImpactStory, a researcher led, non-profit organization, with a drive to help redefine the impact of research articles. Article level metrics monitor the conversations around an article, as a complement to citation reports which measure a journal’s overall impact. ImpactStory aggregates impact data – the number of times an article is accessed and mentioned in editorials, news, tweets and blogs, as well as bookmarked, favorited, and recommended, in addition to those cited by another research paper, from sources such as CrossRef, Mendeley, and PubMed."

 

 

Later this Winter, the MBLWHOI Library will hold a open Woods Hole scientific community program about Altmetrics.

Please let us know if you have an interest in taking a lead in this discussion: ejournals [at] mbl [dot] edu

#9: White paper redefines the research library.

 

Library Scholar Cathy Norton and former Library Director Holly Miller (now at Florida Institute of Technology), along with colleagues from the libraries of Rockefeller University, Cold Spring Harbor, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Research Center will shortly be publishing a white paper entitled Data management: Librarians or science informationists? Mention of this paper was published in Nature Correspondence on 18 October, 2012. We will inform you when this paper is published. 

 

_______________________________

 

#10: For your interest: 

 

As multi-instiutional projects with hubs emanating from the MBL Center for Library and Informatics and the MBLWHOI Library, the Encyclopedia of Life and the Biodiversity Heritage Library join forces on a regular basis, at conferences such as the Ecological Society of America...jointly administering  exhibition booths, to communicate with the scientific community about these uniquely related projects. Additionally, the two projects cooperate in a crowd sourced project to transform BHL content scientific illustrations into ready-to-use illustrations on EOL species pages.  Below, the most recent newsletters for EOL and BHL.

#11:  A Closing Remark for this issue of MBLWHOI Library Winter Notes, from a 1908 issue of Science, by Dr. Frank R. Lillie: 

 

Frank R. Lillie

 

“The problems in the various departments of biological research are so intricately interrelated that each department is sure to be of aid to others in many ways often curious and unexpected. This is not a matter for surprise. It only emphasizes the necessity of the broadest organization of our work if any subject is to march forward with the least degree of impediment.” -
Frank R. Lillie, second MBL Director, first President of the Board of Trustees of WHOI

 

from:  Science, New Series, Vol. 27, No. 688 (Mar. 6, 1908), pp. 369-386

 

The next issue of MBLWHOI Library Winter Notes will appear here in January 2013.

Two Cities Named Cambridge and One Library Named the Biodiversity Heritage Library

note: this is a reprint written by MBLWHOI Library staff member Matt Person from the Biodiversity Heritage Library Blog, originally posted Wednesday October 3rd 2012 at  http://blog.biodiversitylibrary.org/2012/10/two-cities-named-cambridge-and-one.html

 

Last week the BHL Librarian and Technical Staff met at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for one of our invaluable staff meetings (our last face to face meeting was about one year ago right after the BHL Chicago Life and Literature Conference.)  These meetings are always lively and packed full of agenda items that we generate during our monthly teleconference calls…and usually a memorable meal or some cultural event are also included! After each of these meetings we return to our home libraries laden down with an armful of tasks to complete within a specific timeframe (which we try to stick to!). Check back soon for a post about the Meeting.
 

Matthew Person

A month ago one of our librarians, Matthew Person of the MBLWHOI Library in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, was given the unique opportunity to speak about the BHL to Science Historians and digital media specialists who were meeting in the other Cambridge: that’s Cambridge University in England! Matt was attending the 9th Digital History and Philosophy of Science Workshop at Cambridge University as a member of the Arizona State University/Marine Biological Laboratory History and Philosophy of Science Program of MBL's Center for Library and Informatics.

The opening day afternoon of the Cambridge UK conference was themed “If you build it will they come? Mobilizing online Communities for Research.” Matt was asked by Dr. Alison Pearn, who is Associate Director of the Darwin Correspondence Project, if he would give a presentation about BHL's social media work, our use of crowd sourcing, and games development, all which assist our BHL development. The presentation Matt gave was titled “Building a large digital library and interacting with the World”, and this was just one of a number of interesting presentations made that day by staff of: The Genizah Project (Dr. Ben Outhwaite of Cambridge University), the oldWeather Project (Dr. Philip Brohan of the MetOffice UK), and the Chymistry of Issac Newton Project (Dr. Wally Hooper of Indiana University), to name just a few of about 20 projects and presenters who spoke during the 3 day workshop.

Matt consulted with BHL colleagues Gilbert Borrego, Grace Costantino, Suzanne Pilsk, and Martin Kalfatovic of the Smithsonian Institution Libraries, Diane Rielinger and Cathy Norton of the MBLWHOI Library, Trish Rose-Sandler and Chris Freeland of the Missouri Botanical Garden, and Connie Rinaldo of the Harvard Museum of Comparative Zoology, in preparation for his BHL talk, the first part of which was a concise account of the purpose, history, and function of the BHL. The second part of the talk detailed our working with the tools of social media websites such as facebook, twitter, and flickr, and our daily use of an issue resolution tool informed by our BHL library users called Gemini. Matt also spoke of our thoughts on the development of a mobile device type of game App, which could assist us with scanned text correction, for example.*

The Biodiversity Heritage Library goes beyond being a virtual biodiversity library serving scholars and citizen scientists. Our work on Flickr isolates some of the remarkable corpus of illustrations in the scanned BHL literature, and works with our partner the Encyclopedia of Life to hold flickr tagging events to have the “crowd sourced” community establish appropriate descriptive metadata for the illustrations so that they can be uploaded to EOL species pages. Our work in social media is dynamic, ongoing and developing, and the talk Matt gave at the Digital History and Philosophy of Science Workshop in Cambridge, UK, was well received by scholars and technicians who both use the BHL and have wondered a bit about what’s behind those 39 million+ scanned pages!

The image of a science historian or any scholar working solely in print materials these days is being replaced by dynamic projects that combine digital versions of scanned historic text with the most advanced computational and visualization tools of the day. Many of these tools have been developed by the BHL partner libraries, and many are also being developed by the History and Philosophy of Science community. This work expands dramatically the scope and depth of the study of the history of science. 

We asked Matt, who lives near Cambridge, Massachusetts, to comment on these two cities which figured in BHL life this September…named Cambridge…the one in Massachusetts and the other in England. He told us, “Both cities named Cambridge are relatively small in size, but huge in scholarly content; both cities have bucolic riverside settings, and also are on the forefront of knowledge creation, and have been so for centuries.” So it’s quite appropriate that in September 2012 both historic cities named Cambridge figured in the life of the historic and ground breaking Biodiversity Heritage Library!

- Matthew Person, Technical Services Coordinator, MBLWHOI Library

* BHL is not, at this time, performing any development with gaming Apps, though we are exploring the possibility of doing so one day.

big bhl weeks in europe and africa

These are landmark weeks for the MBLWHOI Library and our partner the Biodiversity Heritage Library.

The BHL biodiversitylibrary.org is now at 39 million scanned pages of biodiversity literature, and this content is directly linked to the MBL Center for Library and Informatics component, the Encyclopedia of Life http://eol.org .

Last week in Berlin was the official launch of BHL Europe, with BHL staff in attendance http://bit.ly/KgxODc , and also the 3rd Global and Technical meeting of the BHL was held.

This week MBLWHOI Library colleagues, BHL staff from the Smithsonian Institution Libraries and the Missouri Botanical Garden, led by BHL Director Martin Kalfatovic, BHL Technical Director Chris Freeland and SIL Libraries Director Nancy Gwinn are in South Africa to attend the Biodiversity Information Management Forum in Cape Town http://bit.ly/Li0A2E .

 


Later in the week BHL staff will be at the BHL Africa Organization meeting...there are now BHL operating nodes in the United States, Brazil, Europe, Egypt, Australia, and China. This project has broken a lot of ground in the creation of a global science library which serves anyone with an internet collection, anywhere. Moreover the BHL staff has become an international leader in virtual library management, and scientists and citizen scientists worldwide use the Library every day. And that would be close to 5 million pages of content in the BHL from the MBLWHOI Library alone!

the future of scientific communication

 

In March, Stanford University brought together a group of progessive scientific publishers and held a workshop entitled: 

Colloquium on Rethinking the Future of Scientific Communication. This group of 19 included leaders whom the MBLWHOI Library has worked with over the years to better serve the Woods Hole Scientific Community, such as Vicky Reich of the digital preservation organization LOCKSS, Moshe Pritsker founder of the Journal of Visualized Experiments, and John Sack, founder of Highwire Press. Among the points made as detailed in their final report  is the point that while scientists are still rather traditional in how they see the workflow of scholarly communication (a point made by John Sack), reality is that journals for example are just one node in the knowledge process. The report above is worth reading as it highlights many issues in scientific publication from the perspective of the smaller progressive publisher.  One side point made in the report is the statement of there being a "weird disconnect" between scientific research and social media. This is something worth a moment's thought. What is the relationship between science and social media? In some circles social media provides broad support network for the process of science, in other areas it does not even enter into the picture. The workshop summary went on to say eventually social media and science will eventually converge. The most valuable point made as mentioned above is that scientific communication has changed to become a multiple access point process. None of these access points are complete and fully developed to serve the needs of cutting edge science as of yet; this discussion will continue for some time to come.

MBL's catalyst highlights MBL CLI and MBLWHOI library

The Marine Biological Laboratory's publication, CATALYST is out with a new issue. This issue is entitled Biodiversity: Exploring Life on Earth, and includes articles on the Biodiversity Heritage Library BHL : Life, Literature, and the Pursuit of Global Access, and the Encyclopedia of Life EOL as well.

 

In two articles about the Encyclopedia of Life, MBL Center for Library and Informatics Director Nathan Wilson speaks about EOL, his own interests and the dynamic field of biodiversity informatics.  Both MBLWHOI Library Scholar Cathy Norton and Biodiversity Heritage Library Director Tom Garnett were interviewed for the article "Life, Literature, and the Pursut of Global Access". The BHL has been a pioneer in the development of virtual library systems and services, as well as being the linked to literature base of the Encyclopedia of Life. Garnett points out that "Identification of organisms requires access to prior descriptions...Imagine an entomologist in a tropical rainforesrt who collects an insect she can't identify. The only information about it may be in one book in a library thousands of miles away"; Garnett goes on to say that if that book has been scanned into BHL, it is available online to anyone anywhere with a networked computer. 

 

The BHL has undergone interesting growth since the MBLWHOI Library first began in the original 11 library partnership. Since 2009, the BHL has expanded globally. The European Commission’s eContentPlus program has funded the BHL-Europe project, with 28 institutions to assemble the European language literature. Additionally, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Atlas of Living Australia, Brazil (through SciELO) and the Bibliotheca Alexandrina have created regional BHL nodes. These projects work together to share content, protocols, services, and digital preservation practices.

 

Catalyst is a periodic Marine Biological Laboratory publication which highlights news and research taking place at MBL.

where scientific publications and wikipedia dare to meet

In order to enhance computational mathematics coverage in Wikipedia, the open access title PLoS Computational Biology has created a new form of peer reviewed scientific publication called a "topic page", which is designed to be published in both PLos Computational Biology and Wikipedia. This phenomenon is described in an editorial published on March 29, 2012 in PLoS Computational Biology:

http://www.ploscompbiol.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pcbi.1002446

 

This is a proactive response by the Computational Mathematics community to broaden its reach while being aware of forces in science which are trying to act and react to the changes taking place in scientific publishing.  It will be interesting to see if other fields take notice of this tool and tailor it to their needs as an extension of possible readership on any subject.

EOL, BHL, MBL, CLI, WHOI, MBLWHOI: a new beginning

 

FIRST CLI - MBLWHOI - EOL - BHL TOUR GIVEN AT THE MARINE BIOLOGICAL LABORATORY, APRIL 16, 2012

A landmark! - The first MBL Center for Library and Informatics - Encyclopedia of Life - Biodiversity Heritage Library - MBLWHOI Library live non-virtual in-person tour was led by Kristin Lans of the CLI's Encyclopedia of Life group and Matthew Person of the MBLWHOI Library.

As this is school vacation week in Massachusetts, the tour was given to Cape Cod visiting students from the Concord Christian Academy of New Hampshire- and included Matt Person leading the MBLWHOI Library historic stacks tour, which included a print journal vs. digitized BHL content demonstration.

 

The tour was then led by Kristin Lans as she gave an in depth demonstration and explanation of the Encyclopedia of Life. This included a fascinating look at select highlights of the close to 1,000,000 and growing+ EOL species pages.

 

Kristin explained how the students can participate in EOL, and she also demonstrated how the Encyclopedia of Life links to scanned literature in the Biodiversity Heritage Library which originated from the MBLWHOI Library stacks the students had just explored.

The MBL Center for Library and Informatics of the Marine Biological Laboratory
http://www.mbl.edu/cli/index.html
is one of a number of institutions which are active components of both the Encyclopedia of Life and the Biodiversity Heritage Library.

Other such collocated BHL- EOL components are at the Smithsonian Institution, Harvard University, and the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. Such juxtapositions and the further global dispersion and interrelationship of EOL and BHL working groups offer the global staff members unique opportunities to interact on many different levels, and ensure the highest levels of creativity and production in these respective projects.

Nathan Wilson is the Director of the MBL Center for Library and Informatics, which includes the MBLWHOI Library, the NSF Data Conservancy project, the Encyclopedia of Life, the MBL/National Library of Medicine Biomedical Informatics course, and the History and Philosophy of Science Program in association with Arizona State University. Holly Miller is Director of the MBLWHOI Library, a component of the Center at MBL - which also includes the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Data Library and Archives.

What made the joint EOL-BHL-CLI-MBLWHOI Library tour possible was the recent consolidation and renovation of the MBLWHOI Library offices which now has all components of the MBL Center of Library and Informatics located in the historic Lillie Building of the Marine Biological Laboratory in woods Hole, Massachusetts.

establishing an open access policy at a small institution

There was a recent article (An Open Access Mandate in Iceland: Vol 8, No 1 (2012) in SCIECOM INFO  the Nordic-Baltic Forum for Scientific Communication, which details how a small university in Iceland went about establing a campus-wide open access policy using as a model the open access policy at Harvard University.

 

In the article, Njörður Sigurjónsson,  Assistant Professor of Cultural Policy and Management at Bifröst University,
Iceland, speaks about the mandate the University adopted, which is impressive due to its simplicity: 

 

The Mandate
"Bifrost University is committed to the objective of making the research output of its faculty available to as many as possible. For that purpose the academic staff of Bifrost University will seek to make their scientific articles available in open access, either by publishing in open access research journals or by depositing them in a research repository. Every member of the academic staff allows the university to make their published research articles available and to store them in an open repository, such as “Skemman”. This holds for every research article published in a scientific journal
authored by the researcher, alone or with others,during the time of his or her tenure at Bifrost University."

 

 

Open access mandates emanating from institution faculties are becoming a more common way for an institution to make strides forward in making the knowledge created by faculty on campus both identifiable with the institution, and as accessible to as much of the public as possible. 

 

Sigurjónsson says: "The purpose of the mandate is to make the scientific output at Bifröst accessible to everyone, everywhere, on the Internet. The way to do that is to either publish in open access journals or by depositing the articles in the university repository."  Thus we see how theoretically simple the nuts and bolts of an open access policy are. In speaking about the cooperative process of coming to an open access mandate agreement, he goes on to say: "Other important lessons from the discussion process at this time was to keep the message simple and not let the discussion spin into a general debate about intellectual property, the scientific merit of particular journals or the general developments in publishing across the globe." The Icelandic mandate does differ from the Harvard mandate in that it mentions specifically open access publishing. It is similar to the Harvard mandate in that it spells out the instance of opting out of the policy, under those types of circumstances which exist to make opting out necessary: "The Rector or the Rector’s designate, will waive application of the policy for a particular article, or delay its appearance in the open repository, upon written request by a Faculty member explaining the need."

 

Open access publishing is a model of publishing which differs from traditional commercial publishing as it is less library subscription driven and more driven by access costs being born by the researcher who has written the published content. In some cases these costs are nil, in others these costs generally run to be around $900- $1500. In the last year there has been increasing public awareness and discussion on what the future holds for publishing houses, libraries, academic institutions, and these discussions have all agreed that the publishing landscape is changing, as it did when online access was developed, as it did when commercial printing developed.

 

These changes are all about progress. How to meet this progress and succeed is the question many academic institutions face. The Bifrost University solution is one way of positively addressing open access for an institution which sought to do so. 

 

Note: 

Skemman is the online institutional repository for The Agricultural University of Iceland, The Iceland Academy of the Arts, The National and University Library, The University of Akureyri, The University of Bifröst, The University of Iceland and The University of Reykjavik. It houses students' digital theses and dissertations as well as articles and other research material from the universities' academic staff.

 

The Woods Hole Open Access Server, WHOAS, is an institutional repository that captures, stores, preserves, and redistributes the intellectual output of the Woods Hole scientific community in digital form.  WHOAS is managed by the MBLWHOI Library as a service to the Woods Hole scientific community.

in the nick of time

We recently assisted two of our institutions center directors in separate last minute journal needs.

 

One of the directors was on deadline in the completion and submission of a funding proposal, and the online version of a figure needed to complete the proposal was not adequate for presentation purposes. While we did not have the figure in the MBL Lillie or WHOI Data Library stacks, we did have the original paper copy of the journal in our Falmouth Technology Park stacks facility. The next morning we were able to provide the center director with a the journal volume he needed, and the funding proposal was complete.

 

detail of  figure
from Quarterly Journal of the Royal Microscopical Society (v.45: 1902)

---------------------------------------

 

In another instance, a center director provided us with a set of obscure references which took awhile to work through: One of the references was found in the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) . The MBLWHOI Library has contributed close to half a million scanned pages to the BHL, and in this instance one reference referred to another reference, the title being part of the BHL. Another of the references was held by another New England academic library; we placed an Interlibrary Loan request, and within hours the book was on its way to the scientist. The third reference was found in an obscure Argentine journal within our MBL Lillie Stacks.  As this was the most valued of all the references the center director was looking for, he understood the value of the content shelved in MBLWHOI library stacks. 

 

While we may like to think every bit of scientific information we may need is available online, this is not the case. The vast majority of what is available in the BHL conforms to copyright regulations, meaning that it is mostly pre-1923 content. Our subscriptions for current content generally cover the years 1997 to the present. We have purchased a number of backfiles, mostly Elsevier titles in Biology and the Earth Sciences, and our JSTOR life sciences collection as well. This leaves a large swath of content in our stacks which is not yet digitized or accessible in digital form, though one day this content may be available online as well.  Until that time comes, we continue to maintain and refine our print collections so that it remains accessible and open to any Library patron.

FASTER than A SPEEDING Journal...

We opened up our wireless iPod touch early this morning to read on the BBC App about an article just published in the open access rapid publication journal PLoS One: how scientists in Japan have conducted research on how honeybees kill hornets through a cooperative process. This article was published in PLoS One on March 14th, and was reported on the BBC website on March 16th.

 

This is an illustrative example of how open access content is not only freely accessible, but within a short time of being published its reach is exponential as a news organization makes the information available to millions of people. Taking note of this could be taken into account as scientists respond to academic issues and issues in the publishing industry. For example, an article published in a by-subscription-only publication can instantly be the subject of news accounts, but the public can't necessarily read the content of an article unless the content is freely accessible. 

 

On a more local level, we write about this issue HERE in our Journals and Serials News. We can also chose to link back to this posting on our MBLWHOI Library facebook page, as well as our Twitter feed. People are free to "like" our facebook posting and re-tweet  or comment on our tweets, so on our small scale we also contribute to the dissemination of this article, but we are part of a much larger forward moving process which serves science when we employ it to discuss cuurrent research.

more winter news from the stacks #2

 

Part 1

We've spent much of the last six months in the stacks preparing the serials and books collections for possible physical changes in stacks configuration, which in the end did not materialize.  Any change to the stacks spaces needs to planned for in a thorough manner, so the bonus of such planning is that you really get a handle on our collections, both book and journals. We have over 300,000 volumes in our collections, much of what is available online has been moved to our offsite storage facility at Falmouth Technology Park, and a small portion of our oldest book and journal volumes have been digitized in the Biodiversity Heritage Library. Part of our identity lies in the eclectic and broad history of the Woods Hole Scientific Community: we, as the library of this community have collections representing the history of biology, chemistry, physics, ecology, and other fields as well. Our holdings are vast and varied, and this has a lot to do with a once robust exchange relationship program with scientific intitutions all over the world, which has become largely obsolete in the digital age.

 

library stacks

 

PART 2

Recently, John Furfey our Librarian who serves as MBLWHOI Library Senior Library Automation Services Officer was speaking with us about a project he is working on for the BiBApp Project.  BibApp is a cross institutional web service which matches Woods Hole researchers with their publication data, and is a collaboration promoting tool.  John has been working on a project matching up older articles without clearly identified Woods Hole authors to the actual citation, which has required him to spend research time in the stacks... and John commented to us that the breadth of the content in the stacks enables him to find in print all of the articles he needs to match authors to citations. Sometimes, even in these digital times it helps to have a working library collection to support your science!

 

 

February 17, 2012

 

Could the University of Iowa Libraries save over $2 million from their subscriptions budget with a flip to open access?

The above headline is from Simon Fraser University doctoral candidate Heather Morrison's  blog "The Imaginary Journal of Poetic Economics". The reason we lead with the above headline is because it is the first time we have seen a public suggestion of a post-commerical subscription only open access  model for accessing published content at an academic institution.

 

Chances are an open-access subscription only model would not take place on a grand scale for many years, if ever, though it's hard to gauge what the future of scientific publishing will bring.  Open access is not free, unless an outside source has fully funded a journal, which is a rarity, and even in that case the publication is not free. Publishing charges for open access content runs close to $1500 per article average. Some academic instituions have set up funds to cover these costs.  Some publishers discount their publishing charges when a library becomes a "member" of their publishing organization.

 

The publishing models we see today are hundreds of years old...though it is in the last 30 years that the extreme profit margins which commercial publishers enjoy have strangled academic institutions and their libraries. This fact alone has fueled the push towards open access in the last five years. Therefore, the above headline is not necessarily too far fetched, though time and communication between all of the players in the creation of published knowledge will responsibly see through the next phases of how institutions meet the scientific content needs of their researchers.

Tellus About It!

 

Informing you of serials subscription changes for 2012

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We annually inform the community of our serials changes for the New Year. This year’s changes are listed    below. Because of MBL and WHOI level funding for 2012, the MBLWHOI Library conducted a comprehensive title survey of the needs of the Woods Hole Scientific Community during Spring 2011. The results of this survey combined with costs for journal titles and cost per use of each title enabled the Library senior staff to come to informed decisions which led to the cancelling of 58 journal titles due to extreme low use and high cost. This met our budget constraints obligations.

 

One of the titles cancelled (but picked up as a free title!) is worth note. The combined titles Tellus A and Tellus B had been published by the journals publisher Wiley. The owner of the journals, the International Meteorological Institute in Stockholm has converted the journals to fully Open Access titles. Therefore we are no longer required to pay for a subscription to these titles, and content back to volume 1 is freely available. The publisher does charge a per page processing charge to authors though, and this charge is $69 per page (tables and figures excluded). This charge would make the cost for a 10 page paper far less than the standard open access publishing charge of $1300 per article. Last year another Nordic publication. Polar Research, went from commercial publisher to fully open access, without any publishing charges, so we can possibly assume that the financial climate in the Nordic region is comfortable enough to support such a reasonable seeming publishing model. We’ll continue to inform you of serials news throughout the year.

A WINTER REPORT FROM THE STACKS #1

 

We've been working in the stacks this winter, weeding the collection, or better descibed as identifying titles which are disused or digitally available online. We go through this process every six years or so...the last time was when we constucted our off-site library stacks facility at Falmouth Technology Park. There's a lot to see in the stacks, as the stacks well represent the histories of the Marine Biological Laboratory and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution through the literature of the times preceeding and through the founding of  our institutions and the MBLWHOI Library.

We'll offer updates of what we find in this stacks over the course of the winter. Today we were measuring the linear inches taken up by journals in the stacks which are also available online through the JSTOR online archive. A few of these journals are: Journal of the History of Ideas, Journal of Infectious Diseases, and Journal of the Royal Geographic Society of London.  Makes one appreciate a bit the breadth of subject matter covered by MBL and WHOI scientists over the years. In these present interdisciplinary times, an exploration of the stacks reveals that such interdisciplinary exploration has always been a part of Woods Hole Science.

INTERNATIONAL OPEN ACCESS WEEK

 

In June of 2007, the MBLWHOI library held it's first Open Access issue event when we invited BioMed Central Managing Editor Matthew Cockerill to run a seminar on open access for the Woods Hole scientific community. That successful event was attended by maybe a handful of scientists seeking to begin to learn about the open access publishing movement. At that time open access seemed very free and accessible to all. Open access is still in development, and the field of publishing is in great flux.  Few things remain constant in publishing, for example BioMed Central is now a division of the publisher Springer, and a number of large interdisciplinary open access journals, such as PLoS one  have sprung up in the last few years. Many people feel that this change is also part of a larger and powerful movement in science to bring down the walls which keep knowledge from being accessible to all.

 

On October 26, this week, the MBLWHOI library held an informal gathering in the WHOI Smith conference room, and we invited our Woods Hole WHOI, MBL, WHRC, and NOAA open access authors to attend.

 

About 50 published open access papers by these scientists were on display in the conference room,  and the scientists attending, (which included WHOI Scientists Mark Hahn, Carl Bowin, and John Stegeman and MBL scientists Susan Huse and A. Murat Eren), had the opportunity to speak with each other and also MBLWHOI Library staff members (including Library Director Holly Miller, Center for Library and Informatics Adjunct faculty member Jane Maienschein, and Library Scholar Cathy Norton) about methods and rational used in making open access publishing decisions. 

 

WHOI scientist/Director of the Marine Mammal Center there, Michael Moore, in conversation with MBLWHOI publishing services librarian Ann Devenish recently said:

"...the reason I try to publish Open Access is simply that I want the broadest possible impact for the work of my coauthors and myself. Publishing in journals that require a subscription for access to a paper limits one's impact to those individuals or institutions that happen to be paying that subscription. Often a very small number -especially if it is a society journal. In contrast, Open Access gives a level playing field for information access globally. Interactions that I have with colleagues in third world countries are significantly driven by papers that I have published in Open Access locations."

 

The MBLWHOI Library will continue to shed a Woods Hole scientific community wide light on open access developments, and how they impact the Woods Hole science community.

International Open Access Week is October 24-30th. Now in its fifth year, this week represents a recognition and active support of the worldwide open access publishing movement. The following link will take you to scores of events, (many of which are online and accessible to all) happening worldwide over the next two weeks.

Polar Research is the international polar environmental science journal published by the Norwegian Polar Institute since 1982. In 2011 this journal left the commercial publishing house Wiley and re-launched itself as an electronic open access publication. The model being used for this journal is that there are no charges associated with publishing in this journal for authors or libraries. This publishing model is rare, and is due to full support of the journal from the Norwegian Polar Institute. The editor of the journal, Helle V. Goldman states:

 

"Publishing in Polar Research entails no author fees, and there are no charges for colour illustrations or supplemental material. Articles are published under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial license, allowing authors to distribute and post the final version of their work for any non-commercial purpose, under the condition that the original source is credited. Publishing in Polar Research makes it convenient for contributors and their institutions to comply with mandates requiring open access to the results of publicly funded research."

This week the 20th year of the National Library of Medicine/MBLWHOI Library Biomedical Informatics course is being held in Woods Hole. The following article was published in 2010 in the publication: Briefings in Bioinformatics, by MBLWHOI Library Scholar Cathy Norton, MBLWHOI Library Director Holly Miller, and Bioinformaticians Grant Yamashita and Anthony Goddard: "A Model for Bioinformatics Training: The Marine Biological Laboratory" (author's version) http://bit.ly/oE0Wfg

 

September 8, 2011

This week the scholarly journal archive platform JSTOR announced that it has decided to make all pre-1923 content on it's platform free to all users. By fact of US Copyright law, all US publications which are pre-1923 are indeed out of copyright, therefore it only makes sense that this electronic content be made freely accessible. If JSTOR out of copyright content is free to anyone, how does this compare to projects such as the Biodiversity Heritage Library of which the MBLWHOI Library and the Encyclopedia of Life are active partners. There are a number of comparisons which may be drawn between the two projects. First, all content in the BHL has the taxonomic name finding software uBio (developed by the MBLWHOI Library) applied to it - this powerful tool scans content to reveal scientific names and the synonyms of names throughout the history of the use of the term. Click on the name, and a broad bibliography of the term is produced. In JSTOR if you are looking at pre-1923 content and you wish to look at post-1923 content, you will indeed be shifting from freely accessible content to content which your library has paid a fee for. In the Biodiversity Heritage Library all content is freely accessible.  When in-copyright content is displayed in the BHL it is because permission to serve the content has been obtained by BHL from the copyright holder, or the copyright holder has requested that the content be scanned and made freely accessible. Like the theory that 2 restaurants on the same block is good for business, it is significant and positive that JSTOR has released 6% of it's collection. The MBLWHOI Library and other components of the Center for Library and Informatics continue their work in the global BHL project, which just this week passed the milestone of 35,000,000 pages of scientific content freely available!   

 

September 1, 2011

There's been a lot of buzz in the journals world of academic librarians this week with the publication of an article by the author George Montbiot entitled  "The Lairds of Learning." This article, linked to here on Mr. Montbiot's website, is a stark portrait of the world of scientific publishing. Libraries of academic and research institutions are constantly faced with decisions regarding limited funding available to fill the literature requirements of our patrons. Our July 1 and August 5 postings below briefly discussed open access publications and freely accessible scientific content. The business of scientific publishing is in great flux, at every level of the creation and dissemination of knowledge.

 

August 5, 2011

Much of the collection of the MBLWHOI Library was grown over almost 125 years through the "scientific literature exchange program", which exchanged MBL's  Biological Bulletin and WHOI's  Oceanus publications with literally thousands of scientific publications from institutions all over the world. This program still exists with about 30 exchange partners nowadays, but the publishing landscape and scientific literature distribution process has changed dramatically in the last few decades. For example, both the Biological Bulletin and Oceanus are freely available publications (Biological Bulletin freely available online after 12 mos.)

In the last decade a few thousand exchange title relationships were cancelled, which saved the MBLWHOI Library thousands of dollars in spiraling subscription costs. There is a central European open access publisher associated with the commercial publishing house Springer which is named Versita. On this website you can read titles like Acta Botanica Croatica, and the Ukrainian title Vestnik Zoologii, titles which we long ago stopped receiving due to or pared down exchange title list. This is a full circle: titles first received via exchange, then we stopped receiving, some we scanned into the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL), and now the titles are available as freely accessible open access titles.  We will be re integrating these titles into our electronic library catalog over the next year. 

 

August 1, 2011

We recently read in the library listserv Scholcomm, which discusses peer review and accessiblity

to data from the UK Parliament perspective:

 

The UK Parliament’s Science and Technology Committee has produced a Report on “Peer review in scientific publications” which, if the Committee’s recommendations are implemented, will initiate several positive developments for scholarly communication.

The Report –  http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201012/cmselect/cmsctech/856/85602.htm – examines the current peer review system thoroughly from different angles. Picking up on the importance of reproducibility of research results, the Committee recommend that “data associated with publicly funded research should, where possible, be made widely and freely available”. Also significant for scholarly communication in general, are the Committee’s “concerns about the use of journal Impact Factor as a proxy measure for the quality of individual articles”. Although recognising the value of peer review, the Committee expresses concerns about the way the peer review system currently operates and encourages the “prudent use of online tools for post-publication review and commentary as a means of supplementing pre-publication review”. The Committee sees pre-publication review as being effective for technical assessment but needing post-publication review for impact assessment, impact now being of high importance for research funders.

 

 

July 1, 2011

There is a great deal of interest in the research and library community about open access

publications. One just announced open access publication by the Genetics Society of America

is: G3: Genes, Genomes, Genetics. The open access model of publication is just one

response from the publishing, library, funding, and research communities to address the decades long issue

of spiraling serials subscription costs.  Open access is also an element of the global movement

within the academic community to make knowledge freely accessible whenever possible.

 

June 27, 2011

The MBLWHOI Library's partner project, the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) has

announced the release of  Charles Darwin's Library, a Special Collection within

the BHL. Charles Darwin's Library is a digital edition and virtual reconstruction of the surviving

books owned by Charles Darwin. The MBLWHOI Library Rare Books Room is just one of many

libraries which have contributed scanned versions of their books to this collection. 

 

June 22, 2011

The MBLWHOI Library has digitized close to 5 million pages in the Biodiversity Heritage Library.

The MBLWHOI Library has expanded online access to the title Nature.

Online access to Nature is now provided from the current issue back to 1950.

 

May 28. 2011

The Directory of Open Access Journals of  Lund University has announced new functionality

 on the DOAJ website, providing article level metadata to more journal titles.

DOAJ titles are accessible from the MBLWHOI Library A-Z list of journal titles

 

April 1. 2011

The MBLWHOI Library has just sent another load of  about 250 volumes to the Internet Archive

Scanning facility for inclusion in the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL). MBLWHOI has to date

contributed more than 4,700,000 pages to the BHL.

BioMed Central membership change effects open access publishing charges
The open access publisher BioMed Central publishes close to 200 journals, and they have published 8 MBL and WHOI authored articles in the last 12 months. As open access publishing (making journal content freely accessible to anyone) is still relatively new, the BioMed Central publishing model has continued to evolve:

1. In the first model a few years ago, MBLWHOI's membership in BioMed Central meant that a MBL or WHOI scientist could publish in a BMC journal without charges.

2. In the second BMC membership model, the MBLWHOI Library was able to cover assessed per-article charges of between $600 - $2300 per article by creating a deposit account with Library subscription funds. In 2008 these charges have increased exponentially outside the limits of the Library's budget.

This necessitates the current model explained here:

3. The MBLWHOI Library now pays an annual membership fee to BioMed Central, which no longer covers processing charges for articles accepted for publication (most libraries now follow this model)

If your article is now accepted for publication in a BMC journal, the Library's Supporter membership category in BMC provides that when you are charged article processing fees at a 15% discount off of regular fees. While this model is not ideal, it is the model our budget can now handle.

BHL Notes

Biodiversity Heritage Library scanned MBLWHOI volumes are now directly accessible through the MBLWHOI Library catalog. Close to 6 million pages have been scanned over the last year.

By searching for a journal or book title in the MBLWHOI Library catalog- many of the 6000+ of our volumes which have already been scanned for the BHL and EOL projects are now also directly accessible from the MBLWHOI Library catalog record.

The BHL platform also incorporates uBio species name finding tools, developed at MBL.

Book example:
Illustrated flora of the Northern United States, Canada and the British Possessions

Serial examples:
Canadian Field Naturalist

These examples represent a small sampling of the BHL holdings accessible through the MBLWHOI Library catalog. As this project develops, much of our pre 1923 holdings as well as copyright cleared titles from other years will be scanned and added to our catalog. Scanned holdings from the 10+ other libraries participating in the BHL project will also be added to our catalog, and migrated as well to a new version of our A-Z list of electronic holdings. This process will take place over time, thanks for your patience.

Recent serials platform enhancements/changes of note

The publisher Elsevier ScienceDirect has rolled out a number of new functionalities in journal article presentation. For example, a "cited by" feature is now in place.

-A new navigation pane on the search results page provides a view of the research output on a subject by year, by content type, or by journal/book titles with the most results. By using these filters you can refine your search results without having to return to the search form.

-A new article toolbox brings together all of the article-related functionality including 'Cited By', 'Download PDF', 'E-mail Article' and more, into one easy-to-find location.

-Being launched in phases: the integration of article comments and ratings from Elsevier's social collaboration site, 2collab will enable you to evaluate papers according to colleague-driven comments and ratings of articles right on the article page. ScienceDirect summarizes these features below:

JSTOR new platform

JSTOR, the platform which provides much of our electronic archival serials access has released a new platform with new functionality- the most important feature to note (not necessarily the best feature) is that when you save citations, you need to create a username and password in order to do so.

All of the JSTOR changes are summarized here:
