Presenter Profile Series: Olivia Karin Diehr

We are just about a month away from the the 44th Annual IAMSLIC Conference & 6th AFRIAMSLIC Regional Meeting in Entebbe, Uganda. Follow our Presenter Profile Series to to learn more about this year’s speakers for #IAMSLICUganda.

We start the series with Olivia Diehr from the Leibniz-Institute for Baltic Sea Research Library.

A little bit about Olivia…

Olivia Karin Diehr is head of the library at the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research (Germany). Olivia started her library career in Rostock Public Library, where she worked in the position of a library assistant before she studied librarianship at the Leipzig University of Applied Sciences (HTWK). In 1994 Olivia graduated with a degree in librarianship. The job opportunities had changed completely after the German reunification. Olivia grabbed the opportunity and started working in academic libraries. She worked in a Governmental University of Applied Sciences (FHöVPR) in Guestrow and at the Greifswald University Library, which is one of Germany’s oldest university libraries. Since August 2008 Olivia has
held the position of librarian at the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research in Rostock-Warnemuende. In 2015 she attended her first IAMSLIC conference held in Rome, Italy. Olivia is very grateful to collaborate with marine scientists as well as with information specials from all over the world. Situated just off the Baltic Sea coast, Olivia’s library is certainly one of the most beautiful places to work.

Talk to Olivia in Entebbe about…

I would like to share ideas, stories and inspirations on the future of libraries. I am especially interested in talking with anyone about teaching writing as a process. On a personal level, I love outdoor activities like swimming in the Baltic, hiking & biking and SUP. Furthermore I absolutely love to cook and bake for family and friends. Or we may have a chat about the last FIFA World Cup in Russia?

Olivia will be presenting with Christian Heene on…

Title: Nationwide “publish and read” Agreements with Publishers – the German Projekt DEAL

Abstract: The Projekt DEAL is a consortium of German libraries, universities, and research institutions with started negotiations with the publisher Elsevier in 2016. DEAL wants to set up nationwide “publish and read” agreements with publishers. By paying a lump sum to cover publication costs, all papers authored by German-based researchers would be published open access. This new payment model would certainly have a global impact. Besides Elsevier, there are ongoing negotiations with the publishers SpringerNature and Wiley. We will introduce the recent developments and discuss whether DEAL could be a model for other IAMSLIC libraries.

Seeking content for Aquatic Commons work party

Dear colleagues,

At the 2018 IAMSLIC conference in Uganda, there will be an Aquatic Commons “work party” to introduce participants to the repository while at the same time increasing open access to publications.

We are looking for content, and you do not have to attend the conference to contribute!

Do you have publications that you would like deposited into Aquatic Commons? You can take advantage of a room full of information professionals to create metadata and do the work for you!

Since we are meeting in Africa, our hope is to find publications from the continent but we are open to other geographical areas. Publications must be in digital format and permission to deposit must be cleared with copyright holders in advance.

If you are interested in participating or have other suggestions, please contact sally.taylor@ubc.ca

Stanford Libraries has been awarded a $4 million grant to implement a new system that will greatly improve how users discover library holdings

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded the grant to Stanford in partnership with the libraries of Cornell, Harvard and the University of Iowa.  Stanford will lead the effort to integrate library data into the web, in a semantic way, so it can be discovered intelligently in web searches as well as in a library’s catalog.  For more details go to:

How to use the ASFA database? Tutorials by the University of Stirling Library.

Dear IAMSLIC members,

The ASFA database users might find useful the following two tutorials created by the University of Stirling Library.

The first one explains the use of the ASFA thesaurus when searching the ASFA database:

The second one is more detailed and includes other database features:

Eleanor Uhlinger to retire

Eleanor’s last day of work at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) Library will be this Thursday, just two days from now.  Eleanor has been an amazing contributor to IAMSLIC including serving as President.

NPS published a great article and video summarizing all of Eleanor’s accomplishments while serving as director of the library for the past 12 years.  It seems like only yesterday I was encouraging NPS to recruit Eleanor and twisting Eleanor’s arm to apply.

Check out the link below.

#IamHawaii conference round-up

 

From October 22nd to 26th 2017, information professionals from all over the world came together for the 43rd Annual IAMSLIC Conference #IamHawaii. Motivated by their enthusiasm to improve the library world, share innovative ideas, and strengthen the IAMSLIC community, this group was not afraid to dive in head first. Located in the beautiful city of Honolulu, Hawaii, the relaxed and friendly atmosphere was an ideal learning environment for the IAMSLIC group.

Speakers presented on various topics ranging from 3D printing to academic publishing, information-seeking behavior to digital repositories, gender and fisheries to the world of corals. Engaging group discussions on innovation and new technologies happened inside and outside the conference programming. Posters on book art, special collections, open data, and library services were available for everyone to see.

The theme of Blurring the Edges: the Osmosis of Ideas echoed throughout the conference as we discussed the evolving nature of our profession. Without a doubt, this conference included some out-of-the-box activities, reminding us that by pushing the boundaries and sharing ideas, we can only improve. With a puppet making workshop, a storytelling exercise, and a fairy-led collage experience, we immersed ourselves in as much creativity and inspiration as we could handle. Whether it was your first or umpteenth time participating in the IAMSLIC conference, you were sure to leave feeling supported, inspired, and ready to take on the year.

Thanks to the amazing planning committee and our conference sponsors, this year’s conference will leave a lasting memory.

Hope to see you at the next IAMSLIC conference!
