Digital Libraries: The Next Frontier
Limited Capacity filling up

The classical model of the library was both an archive and a temple. The library was a defense against decay and destruction, an institution that preserved not only a system of values but also certain rituals of using knowledge: the book as a physical object and, consequently, a model of text that is final and unchangeable. But electronic textuality has changed all that. We are not in Kansas anymore, and some rather pesky people among us -- generally referred to as digital humanists -- have developed a craving for digital collections in which a text or an image is not only an object but a service; not a static entity but an interactive method. Can libraries keep up with the instability and fluidity of infinitely enrichable digital objects? And should they?

Session #1: Dynamic Digital Collections
Limited Capacity filling up

Join our Session ‘Dynamic Digital Collections’

This session will be chaired by Anna Lundén, National Library of Sweden​
  • DOM project increases understanding between researchers and the National Library of Finland , Liisa Maria Näpärä, The National Library of Finland, Finland
  • The Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL): Overcoming and Pre-empting COVID Limitations, Constance Rinaldo, Biodiversity Heritage Library, US, Jane Smith, Natural History Museum London, David Iggulden, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, Richmond, Surrey, Elisa Herrmann, Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin, Colleen Funkhouser, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.
  • Resounding Libraries: The transformation of the Ton Koopman collection into an open, digital resource for artistic research, Bruno Forment, Orpheus Instituut, Belgium

This session centres on the speakers’ experiences from the digitisation of three different research library collections. Would you like to hear how national libraries can help researchers navigate digital collections? Do you want to know more about how to close the global gap in access to digital content, laid bare by the COVID-19 pandemic? Or are you interested in hearing about the trials and tribulations of transforming a centuries-old private music library into a functioning digital research collection? This session may be for you!

The first presentation by Liisa Maria Näpärä will discuss the Digital Open Memory (DOM) project, funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and developed by the National Library of Finland (NLF). The project was developed to solve an existing gap in researchers’ knowledge regarding the contents of digital collections and their copyrights. This gap has caused interference in collaboration between researchers and the NLF. The project’s aim is, thus, to bridge this gap in understanding by allowing the NLF to take part in the distinct levels of research projects and to provide collections and support for researchers. With a focus on data-driven research services and user-driven information collection, the DOM project will serve to re-define the NLF’s role in the national research field and open lines of communication between researchers and libraries.
The second presentation by Constance Rinaldo and Jane Smith shares how the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) has overcome and pre-empted Covid-19 limitations within virtual library collections. BHL has operated in a virtual environment since its inception in 2007. As such, the pandemic highlighted some of their strengths, such as social distancing, collaborating virtually, and opening up science and interconnectivity. It also highlighted, however, a need to identify collection gaps and develop technical improvements to address inequalities for content access. The presentation discusses the BHL’s successes, possible future challenges, and relevance as a valuable resource beyond biodiversity.
Finally, the third presentation by Bruno Forment discusses the transformation of the Ton Koopman Collection into an open, digital resource for artistic research in music. The presentation will consist of two parts. First, a brief overview of the collection and its contents – which boasts nearly 5,000 early printed editions and 400 manuscripts, dated between 1486 and the early 1900s, in addition to well over 11,000 modern books and scores. Second, a description of the steps that have been taken in the past one and a half years to transform Koopman’s private collection into a (semi-)public research library within the Orpheus Instituut, in the heart of Ghent, Belgium.

Session #2: Powering Sustainable Open Publishing Platforms
Limited Capacity filling up

Join our SessionPowering Sustainable Publishing Platforms’

This session will be chaired by Charlotte Wien, University Library of Southern Denmark​
  • Mapping the OA Diamond landscape worldwide. Towards a more sustainable future, Vanessa Proudman, SPARC Europe
  • New University Press: collaborative innovation in Diamond Scientific Publishing, Natalia Grygierczyk, Radboud University, the Netherlands 
  • An Open Book: launching a library-based open access books hosting service, Rebecca Wojturska, University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom

This session is all about the future of Open Publishing. Are you interested in hearing about challenges and opportunities for Diamond Open Access, or would you like to learn about the book-hosting service single-handedly launched and operated by a university library? Then please go ahead and sign up for this session!

Vanessa Proudman presents the results of ‘The Diamond Open Access Study’, a research study commissioned by cOAlition S. In her presentation, a new understanding of the OA Diamond sector and its maturity with respect to editorial quality assurance practices and Plan S technical requirements will be shared. Additionally, she will discuss key perceived challenges of OA Diamond journal editors and the current financial sustainability of the sector. Most importantly, she will be presenting the new OA publishing Commons, which seeks to bring together the world’s community-driven/governed journals and platforms, connect them and technically support them in a new, increasingly coordinated and sustainable way.
Next, Natalia Grygierczyk discusses an innovative model for Diamond Open Access scientific publishing, explaining not just its theoretical foundations, but also how it is actually implemented in the newly started OA Radboud University Press (OA RUP). Within the new cooperative model, the OA RUP aims to enable, guide, and support academic editorial boards in the transition process to Diamond Open Access. This presentation provides an overview of the new publishing model, its operational activities, and financial aspects. It concretely describes the collaborative process with various service providers, how the OA RUP is financially sustainable in the long term and how cost-effectiveness is achieved in the transition to Open Access.
Finally, Rebecca Wojturska provides insight into the world of launching a library-based Open Access book-hosting service. The presentation will reflect on the timeline, successes and learning points of the current University of Edinburgh library project and provide recommendations and conclusions to attendees. It will also discuss how to grow a book-hosting service and how it is useful in supporting teaching and learning. Finally, it will consider the technical requirements of such a project and share anecdotal evidence from academic and student users to document the successes of the University of Edinburgh library project and launch. As such, the primary audience for this presentation is the librarian who is beginning their own book-hosting service, or who is considering it, as well as those interested in Open Access publishing.

Katz, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, United States, Simon Worthington, TIB - German National Library of Science and Technology, Germany

‘Working with Software & Data’ will focus on the potential for researchers and libraries using FAIR and Open Knowledge. The three presentations in this session will outline the key role librarians can play in guiding scholars through topics such as Data Citation, bibliometrics, and software preservation. Does this sound interesting to you? Sign up and join this session!

The first presentation by Barbara McGillivray, Nicolas Larrousse and Daan Broeder discusses how Data Citation and Data Publication can play a key role in a synergetic relationship between libraries and researchers and have the potential to shape new ways to conduct research in the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH). The presentation will further discuss how to establish a dialogue within the library community to address the intersection between Data Citation, Data Publication and Open Knowledge, exploring issues to do with how data and data publications can be made available and easily searchable in library catalogues, how librarians can act as data champions training students and researchers in best practices, and how data collections can be best curated to address the needs of SSH researchers.
The second presentation by Katie Wilson discusses the Curtin Open Knowledge Initiative (COKI). This innovative research project explores and shares publicly available data, analysis, insights, and software code to expand understanding of institutional scholarly research performance and progress towards becoming Open Knowledge institutions. Building on a critique of limited bibliometric measures and underlying assumptions used by global university rankings, COKI has aggregated trillions of data points from multiple publicly available sources on more than 100 million outputs for more than 20.000 institutions. This presentation deliberates on the work of the COKI project and how collaboration with libraries can enhance institutional understanding of Open Research production, performance, and options to enric/h the implementation of Open Knowledge institutions.
Finally, the third presentation by Neil P. Chue Hong seeks to discuss the current status of software citation in the researcher and publishing communities by summarising how libraries can build on the available guidance and by showcasing existing efforts. It will also give insights into how research libraries can collaborate with research software engineering groups and research computing groups at their institutions, to provide broader support for Open Research, FAIR research objects, reproducibility, and software preservation.

Session #4: Open Access: a Case for Diversity and Inclusion
Limited Capacity filling up

Join our Session ‘Open Access: a Case for Diversity and Inclusion’

This session will be chaired by Martin Moyle, University College London, United Kingdom
  • Societal impact and open research: results of a joint partner investigation, Henk van den Hoogen, University Library Maastricht, the Netherlands; Timon Oefelein, Springer Nature, Germany
  • Speed talk: Online Library Access and Privacy: Best Practice, Jos Westerbeke, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands
  • Open Access - A challenge for smaller research libraries, Elisa Herrmann, Stefanie Paß, Jana Rumler, Museum für Naturkunde Berlin - Leibniz Institute for Evolution and Biodiversity, Germany

In this session, our speakers will talk about Open Access from various perspectives. Would you like to hear about the Open Access collaboration between a national university association, an academic publisher, and research libraries? Could you use some hands-on recommendations for tackling privacy issues? Or are you interested in hearing about how even small libraries could implement Open Access infrastructures? Join this session!

In the first presentation, Henk van den Hoogen and Timon Oefelein present the results of a unique collaborative Open Science initiative by the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU), Springer Nature and several academic libraries in the Netherlands. This presentation provides background to the initiative, its rationale, objectives, and interdisciplinary make up, as well as summarising its key results and those from two large global researcher surveys to do with researchers’ motivations towards SDG research and usage trends of both OA and non-OA content. The presentation will be of interest to academic support librarians supporting researchers with publication and impact, as well as data librarians interested in innovative new SDG mapping technology, and bibliometric and members of the research assessment community interested in new ways of defining and capturing the societal impact of research.
Next, Jos Westerbeke will give a lightning talk about Federated Identity Management (FIM4L), one of LIBER’s Working Groups. In hist talk, they will provide insights and recommendations into authentication practices (single sign-on) for licensed materials and differing privacy issues. He will also discuss what to do when publishers delay implementing privacy enhancing changes and how the Working Group can help with setting up the right configuration for federated SSO access according to a broadly supported uniform library SSO method conforming to FIM4L principles.
Finally, Elisa Herrmann, Stefanie Paß, and Jana Rumler will provide insights from the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, a small integrated research museum within the Leibniz Association. In their presentation, they will discuss the future activities for the implementation and promotion of Open Access in their institution, which include an in-house publication fund, the development of Green Open Access infrastructures, and the handling of OA publications in the acquisition process. As a smaller institution themselves, they will also pose the question of how big the gap is in the implementation of Open Access between large and small libraries. They will then identify possibilities to narrow the gap and, in the best case, create structures that will help smaller libraries to promote Open Access and Open Science in their institutions.

Onboarding Citizen Science and the role of research libraries: barriers and accelerators
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

This workshop derives from the SSHOC - Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud work in collaboration with the LIBER Citizen Science working group. It will be building on the outcomes of the session“ Citizen Science: What it means for SSH and how can multidisciplinarity be achieved?” that took place during the conference “Realising the European Open Science Cloud: Towards a FAIR research data landscape for the social sciences, humanities and beyond.” in November 2020.

Objective 
The overarching aim of this workshop is to raise the awareness of the challenges and opportunities in libraries’ involvement with Citizen Science in SSH. It aims to explore the extent to which research libraries can serve as a bridge between researchers and citizens.

An approach based on the sharing of best practices and current research, the involvement of participants in the reflection of the respective roles and training needed, complemented by an open discussion, will shape the overall experience. One of the outputs of this workshop will be the production of actionable recommendations for research libraries and the SSHOC/SSH communities in the form of a report. This will be complemented by a proposed outline of potential awareness raising and training sessions (for librarians, researchers, and citizen scientists) that would help participants in implementing those recommendations.

This workshop will be an opportunity to create further synergies between LIBER, SSHOC and initiatives represented by the speakers and the participants.

SSHOC’ing drama in the cloud; Encoding theatrical text collections for discovery,exploration,and visualisation;the added value of SSHOC/CLARIN services.
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Encoding theatrical text collections for discovery,exploration,and visualisation;the added value of SSHOC/CLARIN services.



The objective of this virtual workshop is to equip the participating librarians with some general knowledge on how researchers in the field of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) can benefit from the resources and services offered by SSH research infrastructures for producing and exploiting highly encoded historical textual data. After the workshop, the participants will be able to successfully guide and advise SSH researchers (with a particular focus on literature studies) in their choice amongst existing resources and tools, based on their research question.

This objective will be achieved by:
1. Familiarising the librarians with the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) format that is widely adopted in SSH for the XML-based mark-up of textual documents and demonstrating the potential benefits;
2. Teaching them how to explore and visualise TEI collections with the help of tools and services offered by CLARIN and SSHOC.
3. Showing them how to optimize research workflows with the help of SSH Open Marketplace (SSHOC).


The workshop use case will be based on ongoing work carried out within the SSHOC project (WP3) on a corpus of theatrical play texts from the 17th and 18th century covering examples in three languages (English, French, and Spanish). The participants will first learn how encoded documents can be searched for in the CLARIN Virtual Language Observatory (VLO). Then they will be introduced to the basics of the XML-TEI encoding, in particular to those elements that concern theatre plays, characters and their respective lines. Through concrete examples, the participants will be shown how simple scripts can be used to generate separate sub-corpora containing the speech for each character or a group of characters. Finally, a contrastive computational text analysis and visualization will be performed using the Voyant tool to demonstrate how the showcased standards, techniques and tools can be successfully used by literary scholars to answer research questions concerning characterization.


The virtual workshop will consist of the following parts:
● Welcome and introduction
● Scenario of use and motivation: a researcher with SSH research questions and limited knowledge of TEI, what should be the advice of a librarian?
● TEI in details:
○ What is a TEI document?
○ Where can you find more TEI documents within the SSH research infrastructures?
○ Pointer to the tutorials on how to create TEI documents for other text types than play texts.
● SSHOC/CLARIN use case step by step:
○ A brief description of the research question that is used as example during the workshop
○ How to find datasets through the CLARIN Virtual Language Observatory
○ How to process the dataset
○ Visualisation and analysis


Hands-on sessions will allow the participants to test proposed methods, resources and tools.


This virtual workshop is offered as part of the work carried out by CLARIN ERIC and LIBER within the EU funded H2020 project “Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC)” which contributes to the creation of the SSH area of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

Knowledge Café: LIBER Strategy
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Welcome to the virtual edition of LIBER's famous Knowledge Café!

This year we would like to ask for your input on the new strategy that LIBER will develop for the 2023-2027 period. With LIBER’s current Strategy (2017-2022) coming to a close, we would like to invite our members to join us in our effort to think back and assess LIBER’s efforts since 2017 (being at the forefront of representing research libraries in Europe and advocating for the future of Open Science). 2020 was undoubtedly a rocky and unpredictable year and LIBER, more so than before, ensured the delivery of services to our wide network while also running our virtual events. This enabled us to reach every corner of Europe and to especially invite members of underrepresented areas to join our online activities (which was not always possible for them before). As we are currently developing the foundation for our next LIBER Strategy, we invite all conference participants to join us during this Knowledge Cafe and help shape the vision for the next LIBER Strategy.

According to LIBER President, Jeannette Frey, “Our network is the biggest source of valuable information when it comes to strategising. The needs and wishes of our network must be addressed as part of this crucial procedure to create a new LIBER strategy. And of course, the new strategy is so much more than simply a document. It must be a living and breathing document that we can all utilise and refer to. As such, we would gladly appreciate your input in this interactive session/Knowledge Café on the topic.”

A shared future for open access books – exploring partnerships between libraries and publishers
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The idea of a joint workshop between OASPA and LIBER came out of a long line of discussions at several conferences and events related to open access publishing. In a diverse landscape where workflows for Open Access for books are not always streamlined, recent work in the field suggests that there are still things to do to make it easier to publish and distribute OA books. One of the problems identified at a workshop during the 2019 LIBER conference was funding of OA books.
This workshop will bring together the library and publishing communities to review what the OA book landscape looks like today based on most recent data and explore areas of tension in terms of costs and funding for OA books, before examining some of the solutions and discussing future initiatives. Prominent voices within these communities, such as the online library OAPEN, the international COPIM project and the Enable OA project in Germany, will share their knowledge and participate in discussions on how a shared goal can be achieved.
OASPA shares LIBER’s goal of working towards an open access future, with members spanning open access journals and books, university presses, scholar-led publishers, as well as key organisations who provide supporting services and essential infrastructure for open access publishing.
Join this workshop if you are interested in learning more about how building better connections between libraries and publishers can benefit your organisation and enable a smoother transition to OA.
Agenda
  • Welcome & introductions
  • Brief presentations by the invited organisations and a Q&A
  • Breakout Session collecting ideas/suggestions about OA books funding
  • Panel Discussion with the invited organisations
  • Summary & farewell

Citizen Science: Defining a role for my library
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Citizen Science gets momentum as universities and libraries are opening centers, units and hubs in order to build infrastrucure, services and facilitate the work of researchers. While every university is unique and no one size fits all, nonetheless, there are a number of roles in citizen science activities for which libraries are particularly well positioned.

This future-oriented, innovative and dialogue-oriented workshop will try to identify roles, services and how to get started. Buidling on the LIBER Open Science Roadmap and activities of the LIBER Citizen Science Working Group, this event outlines WHAT roles can be defined, WHERE to find inspiration, and HOW research libraries can move to implementation mode.

The workshop contain of two parts.

1. Roles and services: feedback and discussion (09.15-10.10)

  • The Power of Many. Advocacy, engagement and the UN SDG’s. (Anne Kathrine Overgaard & Thomas Kaarsted) 
  • Research Librarians Guide to Citizen Science. Drawing inspiration from SciStarter’s groundbreaking ‘Librarians Guide to Citizen Science’ (2019) the Working Group will publish a similar guide for research libraries. (Simon Worthington)  
  • Templates for Single Point of Contact. Building on the BESPOC-model (Ignat & Ayris 2020), the Working Group aims to deliver a series of digital templates for all libraries. (Dirk van Gorp & Tiberius Ignat) 
2. How to get started: a facilitated discussion in groups (10.00-11.00)
Building on the presentations in Part One, participants get the opportunity to outline roles for themselves. Part Two consists of three themes:
  • How to get started: Advocacy, barriers and no one size fits all 
  • How to get going: Tips & tricks from the research librarians guide to citizen science 
  • How to consolidate: The library as single point on contact

Session #5: How Can Open Infrastructures Support the Role of Research Libraries?
Limited Capacity filling up

Join our Session ‘How Can Open Infrastructure Support the Role of Research Libraries?’

This session will be chaired by Maaike Napolitano, KB, National library of The Netherlands​
  • Knowledge Graph for a more holistic access of artifacts in Digital Libraries, Fidan Limani, Atif Latif, Klaus Tochtermann, Leibniz Information Centre for Economics, Germany
  • How Open Infrastructure Benefits Libraries, Joanna Ball, Royal Danish Library; Niels Stern, OAPEN; Silvio Peroni, University of Bologna, Italy; James MacGregor, Public Knowledge Project, Canada
  • From principles to reality : How OPERAS Research Infrastructure paves the way to Open Knowledge, Suzanne Dumouchel, CNRS (Huma-Num), France, Emilie Blotière, CNRS (Huma-Num), France, Judith Schulte, Max Weber Stufung, Germany, Tiziana Lombardo, Net7

The three presentations in this session will showcase the wide range of opportunities Open Infrastructures can offer research libraries. The speakers will highlight different approaches, perspectives, initiatives, platforms, and more. If you would like to know more about this topic, this may be the session for you!

In the first presentation, Fidan Limani explores the integration of scholarly artifacts from the domain of economics using Knowledge Graphs (KG). An initial version of the KG is presented and discussed, all the while keeping a library perspective on the process. Use cases enabled by this approach are also deliberated on, such as opportunities for researchers to interact with multiple facets of a research endeavour (in terms of research deliverables), cases that involve resource complementarity, or those that involve certain research deliverables across providers or collection origin. A final item to discuss includes the methodology used to design, develop, and maintain the current KG and its future extension.
In the second presentation, James MacGregor, Niels Stern, Silvio Peroni and Joanna Ball discuss the benefits of Open Infrastructure for libraries. Libraries benefit from Open Infrastructure, including projects such as the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB), OAPEN, OpenCitations, and Open Journal Systems (OJS), by receiving access to free content and services that help in establishing quality and discoverability. However, they offer libraries much more than just cost-free alternatives to commercial infrastructures. They are also Open in the sense that they have community-based governance models and opportunities for community input into their future developments and directions. In this presentation , we will hear from three Open Infrastructures currently supported by the SCOSS program – discussing how they involve contributing libraries in their governance.
In the third and final presentation, Emilie Blotière and Tiziana Lombardo address two services provided by OPERAS and funded by the European Commission – the Research for Society service, under the COESO project (Swafs call) and the Discovery platform for Social Science and Humanities resources (data and publications, profiles and projects), under the TRIPLE project (INFRAEOSC call). The talk will include an introduction of OPERAS and the two services, a discussion on the interoperability and complementarity between these platforms, and an explanation on how the complementarity facilitates institutional funding.

Session #6: The Future is Open: Democratisation of Knowledge
Limited Capacity filling up

Join our Session ‘The Future is Open: Democratisation of Knowledge’

This session will be chaired by Thomas Kaarsted, University Library of Southern Denmark​
  • Libraries, Citizen Science and Open (Cultural) Data: a seminal relationship?, Martin Munke, Saxon State and University Library Dresden, Germany
  • Leveraging an open infrastructure to enable visual discovery in library systems: the case of Open Knowledge Maps, Peter Kraker, Open Knowledge Maps; Beate Guba, TU Wien Bibliothek, Austria, Andreas Ferus, University Library, Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, Austria, Andrea Hacker, University Library of Bern, Switzerland, David Johann, ETH Library, ETH Zurich, Switzerland, Najmeh Shaghaei, University Library of Southern Denmark, Denmark, Guido Scherp, ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics, Germany
  • Speed talk: Early Career Researcher Day: A Case Study in Collaboration Across the University and Beyond, Heather Saunders, Jaime Orr, Brianne Selman, University of Winnipeg, Canada


The Future is Open: Democratisation of Knowledge’  will connect the concept of Open Knowledge to topics such as the identity of post-digital revolution research libraries, and the support of early-career librarians. This session will also showcase how libraries can use the tool that operates the world’s largest visual research search engine. Does this not sound interesting? Please go ahead and sign up!

In the first presentation, Martin Munke presents the concept of Open Citizen Science in detail – the Open curation, editing and further processing of digital data and objects provided by GLAM institutions in collaboration between citizen scientists and these institutions. He also discusses its suitability for dealing with the library identity crisis that came with the digital revolution and the profound changes the research landscape underwent as a result of it. The main question asked concerns whether it is viable to claim there is a seminal relationship between libraries, Citizen Science and Open (Cultural) Data.
Next, Peter Kraker and Beate Guba discuss Open Knowledge Maps in order to present a novel model that connects them back to library systems and makes it possible to add custom visual discovery services to their offerings. Open Knowledge Maps attempt to transform discovery of scientific knowledge by providing an open, visual, and community-driven system that is based on Open Infrastructure. They provide an instant overview of a field by showing its main areas at a glance and papers related to each area. Based on this idea, in the novel model, Open Knowledge Maps acts as a cloud, so there is no need to install new software on library servers. The presentation explains the workings, and uses, of this tool.
Finally, a lightning talk by Jaime Orr, Heather Saunders, and then Brianne Selman will explore Early Career Researcher Day, an inter-university event spearheaded by the University of Winnipeg. Attendees considering how to encourage knowledge sharing among early-career researchers and between academics and their support staff can learn from the case study of this event. The talk will report on the successes and challenges of both the inaugural in-person event in 2020 and the 2021 virtual adaptation, which responded to the unique challenges of the global pandemic.

Session #7: Hand in Hand: Supporting Strong OA Communities
Limited Capacity seats available

Join our Session ‘Hand in Hand: Supporting Strong OA Communities’

This session will be chaired by Simone Kortekaas, Wageningen University & Research - Library, the Netherlands​
  • LYRASIS Research and an Inclusive Approach to Open Access, Celeste Feather, Heather Rosen, Sharla Lair, Jill Grogg, LYRASIS, United States
  • Networking and capacity building - How we support the open access community in Germany, Helene Brinken, Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB), Germany; Andreas Kirchner, University of Konstanz, Germany, Linda Martin, Universitätsbibliothek Bielefeld, Jochen Schirrwagen, Universitätsbibliothek Bielefeld, Jessika Rücknagel, Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB), Hannah Schneider, Kommunikations-, Informations-, Medienzentrum der Universtität Konstanz (KIM), Paul Schultze-Motel, Helmholtz Open Science Office, Agnieszka Wenninger, Open-Access-Büro Berlin (OABB)
  • Advancing Open Access in the Netherlands after 2020: from quantity to quality, Hans De Jonge, Dutch Resarch Council; Jeroen Sondervan, Bianca Kramer, Jeroen Bosman, Utrecht University, the Netherlands

This session will highlight the role that Open Access can play in bolstering scholarly communities. Our speakers will present various perspectives around this idea. Would you like to know how Open Access can help your library? You might find out in this session!

The first presentation by Hannah Rosen and Celeste Feather discusses the survey of predominantly United States higher education libraries conducted by LYRASIS Research in 2020 to understand the spectrum of attitudes and actions related to Open Access. Briefly, the results indicated that the U.S. approach to OA is decentralised, lacking the focused trends that are apparent in other areas of the world. This presentation will outline the results of the survey in more detail, as well as the conclusions LYRASIS has drawn and the work that has been undertaken to develop an inclusive approach to a variety of OA initiatives.
The second presentation by Helene Brinken and Andreas Kirchner will share experiences and interim results from a new project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF): "open-access.network – Competency and Networking Platform in the Field of Open Access". The project builds on the open-access.net web portal providing information, transfer of competences and networking for the German Open Access community. The information, training and networking offers developed during this three-year project are aimed at researchers, research support staff, and the broader Open Access community.
The third presentation by Jeroen Sondervan, Jeroen Bosman, Bianca Kramer, and Hans de Jonge explores options to advance Open Access after 2021, using the Netherlands as a case study. Its premise is that there is a need to look at qualitative aspects of Open Access, alongside quantitative ones. The talk will first take stock of the progress that has been made before suggesting how to broaden the agenda. It is meant to act as a starting point to discuss what should be priorities to work on moving forward, including for research libraries, and also beyond the Dutch context.

Session #8: Level up! Building the skills
Limited Capacity filling up

Join our Session ‘Level up! Building the Skills’

This session will be chaired by Cécile Swiatek, University of Paris Nanterre, France​
  • Play games with me: experiences using gamification for online research skills training, Elisa Rodenburg, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Joanne Yeomans, Leiden University, The Netherlands Lena Karvovskaya, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Netherlands
  • LibraryDen: an open online asynchronous information literacy course, Anne Calvert Barnhart, University of West Georgia, United States
  • Developing Social Interoperability to Advance Open Science: A Joint Effort by LIBER and OCLC, Astrid Verheusen, LIBER; Rebecca Bryant, OCLC
  • Speed talk: RDA's 23 Things as Research Data Management Support Tool in Slovenian University Libraries, Ana Inkret, Slovenian Social Science Data Archives, Mitja Vovk Iskrić, Central Technical Library at the University of Ljubljana, Irena Vipavc Brvar, Slovenian Social Science Data Archives

The ‘Level up! Building the Skills’ session will highlight various concepts that can be used to boost library communities in the widest sense of the word: from supporting students with virtual games to the implementation of national Open Science strategies, and many things in between. Would you like to find out how these are connected, and what they have to do with skills? Then please join this session! 

The first presentation by Elisa Rodenburg presents the Data Horror Virtual Escape Room, a virtual escape room designed to introduce basic research data management concepts to university staff and students through the format of an online escape room game. They will discuss how game-based learning (GBL) has been gaining increasing attention as a way to enhance learning and how it offers an opportunity to broaden the audience for traditional library-taught training. Not only will attendees learn how it can be be used by any library as it is, but additionally how the concept can also easily be reproduced and adapted to other contexts and settings.
The second presentation by Anne Calvert Barnhart explores LibraryDen, an Open online asynchronous information literacy course in the course management system (CMS). The goals for the project were to create a useful learning object with integrated assessment that would help students and be appealing to faculty as an assignment. The team also wanted the end result to be easy to maintain with reduced personnel and something that the larger library community could also benefit from. In this presentation, the team leader will describe the remoted and distributed work that made the project successful. The presentation will also address how student learning is measured and assessed through the course. Participants will also discuss the possibilities of and obstacles to implementing this idea at their home institutions.
The third presentation by Rebecca Bryant and Astrid Verheusen discusses the multi-part OCLC-LIBER Open Science Discussion Series, developed with the aim of engaging the library community in envisioning an ideal future for Open Science and to discuss the roles of research libraries in furthering Open Science goals. In this presentation, OCLC and LIBER representatives share findings from both the Fall 2020 OCLC-LIBER Open Science Discussion Series and the subsequent Social Interoperability Workshop Series, including lessons learned on how libraries can engage stakeholders across their institution.
Finally, a lightning talk by Irena Vipavc Brvar will discuss RDA Node Slovenia, formed in February 2019 within the RDA Europe 4.0 project to connect national Open Science stakeholders, promote the culture of data sharing and contribute to the implementation of the National Open Science Strategy. The talk will present the process of adaptation, the use, and the impact of the document for RDM practice in Slovenia, placing it in the context of other Open Science initiatives currently underway in the Slovenian research community.

Why use Wikidata, or not?
Limited Capacity seats available

Wikidata as an infrastructure is a gold standard for modeling and sharing information on the web, as it provides an open source infrastructure for modeling data, as well as for querying information. Consequently, libraries are increasingly making metadata on their collections available via Wikidata. According to the survey conducted by the LIBER LOD Working Group in 2019, Wikidata “stood out as the most common external resource that the projects were linking to.”1 In this panel session we seek to bring together speakers who have done research on or implemented Wikidata for library collections to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of sharing these information via the Wikimedia ecosystem and Wikidata specifically. The panel will include a presentation from Annette Dortmund from OCLC; Olaf Janssen from the Koninklijke Bibliotheek in the Netherlands; Julie M. Birkholz from KBR- the Royal Library of Belgium, and Matt Miller from the Library of Congress. The presentations will include the reasons for the use of Wikidata or not, as well as practical examples from three libraries implementing Wikidata each in different stages. Following these short presentations there will be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions to facilitate a larger discussion on the growing knowledge around the use of linked data and specifically Wikidata in libraries.

This session will be chaired by Hilde van Wijngaarden, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Netherlands​
  • Open Source Search Index for distributed OER Repositories in Germany, Axel Klinger, Technische Informationsbibliothek; Adrian Pohl, North Rhine-Westphalian Library, Germany
  • Fostering open education in Information Literacy using a taxonomy, Harrie van der Meer, University of Amsterdam / Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences; Renee de Waal, Wageningen University & Research, the Netherlands, Marijn Post, HAN University of Applied Sciences, Monique Schoutsen, Radboud University, the Netherlands
  • The challenges of sharing open educational resources, Gabriella Lutgens, Maastricht University, the Netherlands, Loes Hazes, Vrije Universiteit, The Netherlands, Claudia Pees, Leiden University Medical Center, The Netherlands
  • Speed talk: Open educational resources (OER) in the Spanish universities, Gema Santos-Hermosa, University of Barcelona, Spain, Eva Estupinyà, Universitat de Lleida, Spain, Brigit Nonó-Rius, Universitat de Girona, Spain, Lidón París-Folch, Universitat Jaume I, Spain, Jordi Prats-Prats, Universitat Politècnica de Calalunya

The four presentations in this session are all about Open Educational Resources. Our speakers will provide you with a wide overview of the subject to show the many facets of OER. Topics such as the distribution of materials, digital badging, community building, and repositories will be discussed. Interested? Please join us for this session! 

In the first presentation, Axel Klinger and Adrian Pohl discuss the OER Search Index (OERSI) project, which addresses the problem of identifying the right service for finding relevant resources that are suitable and helpful to enhance courses within higher education by providing a unique entry point for exploring materials from distributed OER sources. The talk will present the basic idea of the index in more detail, and give insight into the development process with workflows, automation, quality assurance and the organisation of releases as well as its internationalisation.
Next, Harrie van der Meer and Renee de Waal will explore how to foster Open Education within the professional Information Literacy community using a taxonomy. The talk will, firstly, show how the taxonomy has been developed before delving deeper into its role and application in Open Education. Although this best practice is about Information Literacy, the lessons learnt will be interesting for libraries to support higher education in the wider sense, since the sharing of OER and digital badging will only become more common in future.
Gabriella Lutgens goes on to discuss the AnatomyTOOL or Topic Oriented Open Learning platform, an online platform for teachers and students with a growing number of curated anatomical learning material available under a Creative Commons (CC) License or Public Domain (PD). The presentation will explore how this sustainable community of anatomists and librarians was created and what was needed to make teaching staff and students aware of its benefits. The challenges and opportunities faced in the building and supporting this professional community will also be touched upon, as well as the topic of recognition and reward connected to sharing and reusing Open Educational Resources.
Finally, Gema Santos-Hermosa discuss a recent study analysing the current situation of Open Educational Resources in the Spanish university context, specifically in the 76 universities members of REBIUN (Network of Spanish University Libraries). The object of study was to identify the main characteristics of the educational resources included in the IRs (volume, timeline, type, licences, metadata and formats); as well as the publication platforms used in higher education (virtual campus, IRs, OpenCourseWare -OCW- and another external channels), the policies and strategies to promote OER and the possible incentives for authors who create them. Finally, a classification of the repositories according to their various stages of development has been proposed. The presentation will explore the conclusions of and recommendations stemming from this study.

This session will be chaired by Karine Bacher-Eyroi, Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour, France​
  • Towards modelling text mining services for digital collections: the case of Latvian Prose Counter, Anda Baklāne, Valdis Saulespurēns, National Library of Latvia
  • Creating gold standards and supervising outcomes – the future role of library staff in supporting information services based on Machine Learning, Timo Borst, ZBW Leibniz Information Center for Economics, Germany
  • Speed talk: Connecting Open Knowledge Components to enhance searches for researchers and topics, Arben Hajra, Tamara Pianos, ZBW Leibniz Information Center for Economics, Germany

This session is centred on the use of innovative services in libraries. Would you like to hear about our speakers’ experiences with new tools and technologies? And are you interested in finding out how you could support the research community of tomorrow? This session could be for you!

In the first presentation, Anda Baklāne and Valdis Saulespurēns discuss a recent paper presenting a text mining demonstration tool developed at the National Library of Latvia – the Latvian Prose Counter. The Latvian Prose Counter is an interactive website that allows users to explore various quantitative parameters of 20th century Latvian prose fiction, including counting, analysing, and visualising various lexical and syntactical features of full texts of novels and stories, as well as analysing the statistics of publishing. The workings, uses, and development of this website will be discussed in detail.
In a second presentation, Timo Borst explores the future role of library staff in supporting information services based on Machine Learning. He discusses the challenges and corresponding skills from and for (data) librarians, that are conceived as basic for the development of many, if not all AI and ML related information services. To do so, he refers to three exemplary current in-house projects at ZBW Leibniz Information Centre for Economics: automatic indexing of scientific full texts, a chatbot for serving user requests, and automatic metadata generation by identifying the funders of a scientific work resp. publication.
In a third and final presentation, Arben Hajra presents EconBiz, a subject portal for business and economics where users can easily find a list of authors who published in a specific field according to a given thesaurus concept or predefined classification code. Furthermore, through the Linked Open Data principles, it is able to crosslink and harvest different author-related data, with the purpose to ensure a comprehensive author profile. The uses and development of this tool will be explored in the presentation.

Limited Capacity seats available

Join our Session ‘Rocky Road: Opportunities & Challenges in Open Publishing’

This session will be chaired by Jo Rademakers, University Library Leuven, Belgium​
  • Monitoring Open Science, Laetitia Bracco, University of Lorraine, France
  • Behavioral reluctance in adopting open access publishing: Insights from a goal-directed perspective, Massimo Köster, KU Leuven, Belgium, Agnes Moors, Research Group of Quantitative Psychology and Individual Differences, KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium; 2: Center for Social and Cultural Psychology, KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium, Jan De Houwer, Department of Experimental Clinical and Health Psychology, Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium, Tony Ross-Hellauer, Open and Reproducible Research Group, Graz University of Technology, Austria, Inge Van Nieuwerburgh, Ghent University Library, Ghent University, Ghent, Frederick Verbruggen, Department of Experimental Psychology Ghent University, Ghent , Belgium
  • The Evolving Scholar - Rethinking publishing, Nicoleta Nastase, Frédérique Belliard, Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, Antonio Romero, Orvium, Spain, Roberto Rabasco, Orvium, Spain, Paul Suijker, Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands

During our ‘Rocky Road: Opportunities & Challenges in Open Publishing’ session, you will get acquainted with inventive approaches to Open Publishing. The four speakers will discuss their use of innovative tools, frameworks, and publications. If this sounds right up your alley, please go ahead and sign up! 

In the first talk, Laetitia Bracco presents a steering tool to monitor the progress of Open Science within the scientific production of the University of Lorraine. Because the code used to develop this tool is freely accessible and reusable, and was designed in such a way as to allow simple and customizable reuse, any research institution can draw inspiration from it to build its own Monitor. This presentation will discuss the main conclusions of this work as well as the perspective considered for future development of the Monitor, which has already been used as a model by four other universities to publish their own.
The second presentation, by Massimo Köster, analyses the reluctance to publish in Open Access journals from the psychological perspective of individual researchers. He applies the goal-directed framework designed by Köster’s co-author to shed light on this type of behavioural reluctance and to organise and suggest possible interventions. They also list various factors that might contribute to behavioural reluctance in general and in the case of Open Access publishing, offering explanations for the reluctance to publish in OA journals. The discussion of each factor is followed by suggestions of potential intervention strategies to address the resulting reluctance.
Finally, Frédérique Belliard and Nicoleta Nastase discuss a new collaborative Open Access journal called The Evolving Scholar (ThES). Developed by TU Delft OPEN Publishing and Orvium (a CERN start-up), the mission of ThES orbits around researchers and their research outputs. Every research finding – negative or positive – deserves to be shared for the benefit of the scientific community and the general public; and every researcher matters regardless of the stage they are at in their career. One of the goals of ThES is to give more visibility and recognition to the non-classical form of publications and their authors. This interactive session intends to show the ThES workflow: submit, review, and publish in short-lived online collaboration.

  • Enabling Library Support for Open Access Books: From Vision to Implementation, Lucy Barnes, Open Book Publishers / COPIM, United Kingdom

This session is about partnerships that cross borders in the broadest sense of the word: our speakers will discuss the international, multidisciplinary, or transacademic applications of their expertise. Are you interested to hear what Artificial Intelligence can mean to cultural heritage institutions, how libraries can benefit from each other across the Balkans, or what community-led initiatives can accomplish in publishing? If so, you do not want to miss this session!

The first presentation by Laura Hollink, Marieke van Erp, and Martijn Kleppe will present the Dutch Cultural AI Lab. It will discuss its founding process, setup, mission, and team, and how the Lab approaches the concept of polyvocality through two key projects: Culturally Aware AI and SociAl Bias Observatory (SABIO). Finally, it will also reflect on the role of the cultural heritage institutes within the Lab and its projects, as well as discuss the benefits of library engagement with AI and its research community.
The second presentation by Adam Sofronijević will discuss the collaboration of several academic libraries across four countries of the Western Balkans – Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, and Northern Macedonia. With the aim of making cultural heritage more accessible to the public, these academic libraries are combining resources and sharing experiences in reaching audiences, digitisation, and skills development. The presentation will discuss this collaboration and the resources shared.
The third presentation by Lucy Barnes focuses on the Community-led Open Publication Infrastructures for Monographs (COPIM) project. This major three-year international project brings together libraries, Open Access publishers, researchers, and infrastructure providers to build Open, non-profit, community-governed infrastructures that will expand the publication of OA books. Since the project is approaching its mid-point, this presentation will discuss COPIM in more detail, as well as share what has been built till now and explain the plans for the next phase of work.

From vision to implementation: how the extended access of OpenEdition's content at the beginning of the pandemic affected publishers’ dissemination policies
Limited Capacity seats available

Following requests from our readers and the call made by many academic libraries, OpenEdition contacted the publishers of journals and books from both platforms to ask for permission to open or extend access to their content during the French pandemic containment period. While extended access of content has been temporary, it has allowed some publishers to redefine their dissemination policy and switch 100% to open access.

How libraries and consortia can support the OA transitions of not-for-profit publishers, and why
Limited Capacity seats available

Transformative OA agreements repurpose former subscription funds to support open access publishing, enabling more research to be published openly. How can open access and open science be advanced further? An expert panel will provide important insights into future directions and opportunities for further collaboration between libraries, funders, and not-for-profit publishers, and will highlight the most effective models for driving compliance, cost restraint, diversity, and open access.
Following the validation of transformative agreements as a viable and essential strategy to accelerate the open access transition at the 14th Berlin Open Access Conference, there has been an explosion in both their numbers and varieties. At least twelve types of transformative agreement operate in the market today, and five of these types have emerged only in the last year. Given the dynamism in the market, we anticipate further models and configurations to emerge.
In their most successful iterations they are structured in ways that constrain costs, diversify the publishing landscape, and position libraries to invest in research support. In this early phase of the transition, the majority of transformative agreements negotiated have involved the largest publishers rather than smaller society publishers, university and library presses, and born-OA houses.
Special challenges and opportunities arise when exploring and entering into these agreements with the long tail of more mission-focussed publishing organisations, as highlighted in recent research undertaken for cOAlition S as a follow-up to the Society Publishers Accelerating Open access and Plan S project. Panel participants have been involved in these initiatives and will share their different but complementary perspectives.
We’ll share ideas for how libraries and consortia can engage effectively with this long tail of publishers while juggling the priority attention required by Covid 19 driven changes to the economy. The long tail of publishers is very, very long indeed and no library has time and resources to manage this by themselves even in the best economy. There are ways to overcome challenges and realise opportunities, for example in the way these agreements are entered into, funded, operationalised, and scaled internationally, so as to minimise administration and reapportion and rebalance costs between countries and institutions.
As with all transitions, the middle ground is uncomfortable and requires significant effort and creativity, but by focusing on the shared objective of an open scholarly communication system we can refine our transformative agreement strategies through partnership among all stakeholders, transparency, and trust.
