Open Scholarship update – October 2016

This will now be a quarterly update. Look for announcements in January, April, July, and October.

New Publications in Open Scholarship
Below are just a few of the new additions since July:

SHARE Curation
As part of the 2016-2017 SHARE Curation Associates program, I am working on a Curation Project – I’m examining the metadata across a number of Open Scholarship collections and looking at how the SHARE metadata / Digital Commons metadata / Dublin Core metadata / and our local metadata align. This will presumably lead to local adjustments and possibly contribute to recommendations for other Digital Commons repositories.

Dashboard Tour
Digital Commons has updated its Dashboard, incorporating the traditional usage reports with additional visualizations and details. Any Open Scholarship administrator interested in learning more can contact me.
