Blurring the Edges: The Osmosis of Ideas, is shaping up to be a great conference so far. Our expectations are high and the venue alone should make you tingle with anticipation.

The conference will be hosted by the University of Hawaii and the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center. Stay tuned to this blog as we will bring you details of our speakers over the coming weeks and reveal to you the excellent networking, collaboration, and learning opportunity, that this conference brings.

Conference details are available at http://www.iamslic.org/conf2017/ you can find information on lodgings, transport, registration, the programme, local attractions and all the usual stuff.

Please tweet and include @iamslicorg and our conference hashtag #IamHawaii, we’d love to see pictures of how you’re preparing for the conference, your posters being printed, practicing for your talk, getting on your flight- everything around this conference is exciting and we’d like to share it with you, so get tweeting 🙂

2012-13 Summary of Resource Sharing Statistics

In July of each year, I collate and summarize the resource sharing statistics from the IAMSLIC Distributed Library project. 2012/13 represents the eleventh complete year of the resource sharing program. A total of 4322 requests were submitted during 2012/13, an overall decrease of 17% from the previous year. A total of 43,023 requests have been submitted via the system since its inception in 2002.

The resource sharing program continues to be broadly international in scope, with 75 different IAMSLIC lending libraries in 26 countries receiving borrowing requests from 124 IAMSLIC libraries in 45 countries, similar to previous years’ numbers. 33 (44%) of those 75 lending libraries are in the United States and they received 68.2% of the total requests, the highest percentage since 2004/05. Libraries in Germany, Australia, Mexico, Canada, India, Argentina, the Philippines, Belgium and Colombia collectively received 27.9% of the borrowing requests.

The Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University (U.S.) regained its status as the top lending library this year, followed by Hatfield Marine Science Center of Oregon State University (U.S.), the Alfred Wegener Institut in Bremerhaven (Germany), the Pell Marine Science Library at the University of Rhode Island (U.S.), and the University of Hawaii (U.S.).

Overall activity across the Regional Groups is more balanced than in recent years, although EURASLIC and SAIL still conduct much of their regional interlibrary loan activity via their discussion lists, so the number of transactions via the Distributed Library does not reflect the full volume of resource sharing in those regions. The Latin American region continues to make active use of the resource sharing program while contributing a substantial amount of lending in return, including an significant percentage of requests filled within the region. Of particular note is the increase in activity in the Pacific region where members from 6 countries constituted 20.3% of all borrowing, while members from 3 of those countries contributed 8% of overall lending. (Note that these numbers include India and Malaysia which are not part of the formal geographic boundaries of the Pacific Islands Regional Group).

The complete set of data is available on the Distributed Library website via the Resource Sharing Statistics link at http://library.csumb.edu/iamslic/ill/. It includes a spreadsheet for each year that offers charts and additional analysis of lending and borrowing patterns. I encourage you to look at the 2012/13 numbers and will be glad to answer any questions you may have about the data.

Annual Resource Sharing Summary

In July of each year, I collate and summarize the resource sharing statistics from the IAMSLIC Distributed Library project. 2010/11 represents the ninth complete year of the resource sharing program. A total of 5310 requests were submitted during 2010/11, the highest volume of activity recorded to date. A total of 33,486 requests have been submitted via the system since its inception in 2002.

The resource sharing program continues to be broadly international in scope, with 73 different IAMSLIC lending libraries in 23 countries receiving borrowing requests from 124 IAMSLIC libraries in 47 countries, similar to previous year’s numbers, but with a modest increase in the number of libraries that submitted borrowing requests. 36 (49%) of those 73 lending libraries are in the United States and they received 66.7% of the total requests, a much larger percentage than in recent years, which have averaged close to 60% from U.S. member libraries.  Libraries in Germany, Australia, Mexico and Canada collectively received 26.2% of the borrowing requests.

The Alfred Wegener Institut in Bremerhaven (Germany) regained its status as the top lending library this year, followed by the Hatfield Marine Science Center of Oregon State University (U.S.) , the University of Hawaii (U.S.),  Hopkins Marine Station (U.S.), and the Pell Marine Science Library at the University of Rhode Island (U.S.) .

The Latin American region continues to make active use of the resource sharing program while contributing a substantial amount of lending in return, including an significant percentage of requests filled within the region. A growing number of EURASLIC libraries are active users of the system, both lenders and borrowers. EURASLIC still conducts much of its regional interlibrary loan activity via its discussion list, so the number of transactions via the Distributed Library does not reflect the full volume of resource sharing in the region. The volume of activity has begun to increase  in AFRIAMSLIC and remains moderate in the Pacific region.

The complete set of data is available on the Distributed Library website via the Resource Sharing Statistics link at http://library.csumb.edu/iamslic/ill/. It includes a spreadsheet for each year that offers charts and additional analysis of lending and borrowing patterns. I encourage you to look at the 2010/11 numbers and will be glad to answer any questions you may have about the data.

New website is now live

Dear IAMSLICers,

As some of you may have noticed if you have visited the IAMSLIC website today, the name servers have been redirected so that http://www.iamslic.org now points to the new website. Because it can take a day or two for these changes to propagate worldwide, some of you may still be taken to the old website, but this should change over time. In the meantime, because many of the internal links in the new website still show the temporary dreamhosters.com address, here are some direct links to several of the key sections of the new website that you may wish to bookmark:

IAMSLIC Home Page:  http://www.iamslic.org or http://iamslic.org
IAMSLIC News & Events Blog:  http://www.iamslic.org/blog
2010 Conference Website:  http://www.iamslic.org/conf2010

IAMSLIC website moves next week

Dear Colleagues,

The IAMSLIC Website and Communications Committee has been working jointly with the EURASLIC Web Committee since the past conference in Belgium to investigate alternatives for the hosting platform for our various web services and resources. Last week, the IAMSLIC Executive Board approved our proposal to relocate the IAMSLIC website to a commercial hosting service rather than purchasing a new server to replace the obsolete server that has been hosted by the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole. Since then, Sally Taylor and I have been working to replicate all of the IAMSLIC website and blog content on the new host platform and we have completed that work. In fact, this is the first posting from the new IAMSLIC blog to be broadcast to the IAMSLIC Discussion List.

We anticipate that the Internet address (www.iamslic.org)  for the website will be redirected to the new host starting on Tuesday or Wednesday next week, 13 or 14 July, 2010.  Once that occurs, I will send out a followup message with the specific URL addresses of the main IAMSLIC website, the News & Events blog, the 2010 conference website, etc. In the meantime, you may preview the new website at its temporary address:
http://iamslic.dreamhosters.com
