  • Fall Break – The Physics Library will be closed on Friday, October 16 for Fall Break.
  • A new journal has been added to our IOP subscription package. Translational Materials Research is a new type of learned publication focusing on the steps needed to translate breakthroughs in advanced materials research into commercial technologies, products and applications. TMR focuses on specific themes, including: Materials and devices for next-generation technologies; Scalability, reliability, lifetime issues; Product development issues: integration, packaging, testing; and Novel fabrication technologies
  • ORCID® iDs are unique researcher identifiers designed to provide a transparent method for linking researchers and contributors to their activities and outputs. arXiv allows you to link your ORCID iD with your arXiv account. This linkage will allow your works on arXiv to be unambiguously connected to your works in other systems. It will help with the ongoing challenge of distinguishing your research activities from those of others with similar names. I encourage all arXiv authors to link their ORCID iD with arXiv. If you don’t already have an ORCID iD, you can create one as part of this process. Once completed you will see your ORCID iD on youruser page.
  • Scientific American – The September issue of Scientific American is a special issue on Einstein and 100 Years of General Relativity.
  • Institute of Physics: Education – The Institute of Physics (IOP) has put together an excellent Education section on its website. Here readers will find curriculum development initiatives, professional development courses, and other helpful resources. Readers may like to start by choosing one of the categories on the landing page, which are broadly divided by career level or area of interest, e.g. I am a teacher or I am a student. Each section is loaded with helpful links and resources. For instance, under the I am new to teaching physics section, some readers may start with “I’m waiting to begin my teacher training.” From there, a number of options are available, including What to read, Refresh your physics subject knowledge, and other topics. Likewise, under the Gender balance section, readers will find information about efforts to address gender imbalances in the field, systematically sorted into the subcategories of Reports and research, Resources and guidance for teachers, and Information on current projects.
  • Upcoming classes from the library: http://wulibraries.doattend.com/. There are 12 Research Studios which were offered in September and will be offered again in October at noon.
  • West Campus Library – Planning has begun to secure West Campus Library this year. More details will be available later.

  • Library Website Redesign – Over the past several months, the WU Libraries have been migrating the content of its current website to a new WordPress platform. Library staff members have worked closely with the Office of Public Affairs to adopt a theme (look, feel, and navigation system) for the new site that can be implemented by other schools and departments to create consistency across campus.While the design of the Libraries’ site will change along with the URLs of some of your favorite bookmarked links, no functionality will be lost. You will still be able to search the catalog, databases, Research Guides, and other library resources—hopefully with greater ease than before. The new site may require some adjustment, but we’re confident that this will be a welcome change for users.During the fall semester, a link will be placed on the current site to the redesigned site, or you may preview it now at:
    http://library-test.wustl.edu.We welcome your feedback via a survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WUlibraries. For more information on the redesign, please visit http://libguides.wustl.edu/webredesign. Watch for the site to go live over winter break in January 2016.
  • Register Now for Fall 2015 Research Studio Series – This semester, the Washington University Libraries are offering a series of free workshops designed for advanced researchers. There are 12 sessions, and they’ll be offered twice this semester over a two-week period. September sessions will take place in the evening, and October/November sessions will be held at noon.

  • Library Inventory – The annual inventory of Physics Library material was done in May. As I mentioned earlier, a thief has been stealing books from the collection, resulting in the worst inventory results ever. One hundred forty seven books have been identified as lost or missing. Books that are missing two years in a row, or paid for by the patron who lost it, are considered to be lost. Sixty books which are now considered lost can be found at: [http://catalog.wustl.edu/search/r?SEARCH=Physics+Library+Lost+Books]. Please check the list of lost books to see if there are any which should be replaced and let me know.In addition to the 60 lost books, there are 87 other books which are missing. Please also check the list of missing books in case you have any of these books. That list can be found at: [http://catalog.wustl.edu/search/r?SEARCH=Physics+Library+Missing+Books].Any help in recovering any of these titles will be greatly appreciated. I have an active police report where we are attempting to track the thief through two books which were recovered after being sold online.

  • 5,000 Open Access Articles supported by SCOAP3 – The Sponsoring Consortium for Open Access Publishing in Particle Physics (SCOAP3) started its second year of operation and celebrates the publication of the first 5,000 articles. More than 18,000 scientists from 86 countries have benefited from this Open Access initiative, publishing articles at no direct costs. All these Open Access articles have appeared in high quality peer-reviewed journals from participating publishers and are released under a CC-BY license. In addition to being accessible on publishers’ websites with no barriers, articles are also available on the SCOAP3 repository at repo.scoap3.org in several formats, including PDF/A and XML for text-mining, and for participating libraries to peruse feeds and API access.
  • Undergraduate Student Research – As a reminder, if you are working with undergraduates writing a senior thesis, encourage them to publish their work at Washington University Open Scholarship: http://openscholarship.wustl.edu/undergrad_pubs/. There is more information about their options at this site: http://libguides.wustl.edu/our/undergrad_open_schol. To submit a thesis, simply click on Submit Research at either the Unrestricted or Restricted collection (based on whether the thesis will be shared with the world or only shared with the WU community), create an account and upload the PDF of the paper along with keyword and discipline choices to make it easier to find. Unrestricted sharing will make the work freely available on the Digital Commons Network as well as easily findable on Google. Sharing in either collection will make the thesis available to future honors students (and others) at Washington University. If you have any questions, please contact Alison Verbeck.
  • Olin Library Browzing Collection – Olin Library will begin work towards implementing a browsing collection of monographs in Olin Library. This initiative will include the following steps:
    • Purchasing electronic access to as many of our Olin printed journals as possible
    • Relocating Olin journals to West Campus
    • Implementing a scan-on-demand service at West Campus that ensures robust and timely delivery of journal content to users
    • Relocating some monographs from West Campus to Olin. Criteria for relocation will be determined–not all monographs from West Campus will fit in the Olin stacks, even after transferring journals to West Campus.
  • Reader privacy?16 of the top 20 Research Journals Let Ad Networks Spy on Their Readers, from Eric Hellman, highlights an ejournal issue that hadn’t occurred to me before. I’m happy to report that the two physics journals included in the study, both published by the American Physical Society, earned good grades for reader privacy. They use a social sharing widget that respects privacy. Mostly I don’t mind being tracked by advertisers on the web but, as Eric Hellman notes in comments, “the vast majority of ads are not intrusive. But when a library spends $5,000 a year so their users can access NEJM, giving their entire click streams to 14 ad trackers is probably not what they think they’re paying for.” Now I’m starting to notice posts on related subjects:

    Since most new models for scholarly communication use the web for distribution, perhaps this is a “scholarly communication” issue worth considering?

  • Elsevier Ejournal Archives – WU Libraries have recently finalized a new contract with Elsevier. As part of the negotiation process, we have purchased numerous ejournal archives, including the General Physics archive and the High Energy Nuclear Physics & Astronomy archive. The backfiles will cover from the first volume through 1994 (unless the title ceased earlier than that). All titles are available through a search of the WU Library Catalog. I have a complete list if you would like to see it, but there are over 120 titles in the physics collections alone.
  • Springer Electronic Access – WU Libraries negotiated a one-time purchase of Springer ebook collections and ejournal archives. The five ebook collections are: Behavioral Science; Earth and Environmental Science; Energy; Humanities, Social Sciences and Law; and Professional and Applied Computing. The four ejournal archive collections are: Biomedical and Life Sciences; Chemistry and Materials Science; Engineering; and Physics and Astronomy. The Physics and Astronomy ejournal archive contains 89 titles with backfile access back to volume 1. All titles can be found by searching in the WU Library Catalog, or a complete list can be found here.
  • Summary of eJournal backfiles and eBook packages added January, 2015 – For a complete summary of the new eJournal backfiles and eBook packages added in January, get more info here.
  • Research Alerts Guide – there is a new Research Guide available to help you create research alerts. A selection of alert and current-awareness services are outlined in this guide. Using alerts can save you valuable time and help you stay current!

  • Enter WU Libraries’ Neureuther Book Collection Essay Competition – Did you know that the Washington University Libraries are giving away cash prizes of $1,000 and $500 to the students who write the best short essays about their own personal library of books? Any full-time WU student—grad or undergrad—may enter to win. There’s no restriction on subject matter. Any collection of books will do as long as it reflects your personal interests. The competition deadline is Monday, March 2 at 5:00 p.m. For official rules, entry forms, and examples of past winning essays, visit the Libraries’ website at https://library.wustl.edu/neureuther or pick up an entry form at the Olin Library checkout desk.
  • arXiv Hits 1 Million Submissions – It all started with an electronic bulletin board — one computer on one scientist’s desk. Now, more than two decades later, arXiv is a driving force in scientific communication. It draws in thousands of researchers every day, operating with a permanent staff and a $1M budget.
    Read more.
  • arXiv Identifiers Extended by One Digit – Starting in January 2015, with article identifier arXiv:1501.00001, all identifiers now have 5-digits after the period. For more details see Understanding the arXiv identifier.
  • Science in the ClassroomScience in the Classroom is an excellent resource for university professors who want to integrate the latest breaking research into their lesson plans. The project consists of a team of editors from the world-renowned journal Science, who work with an advisory board of scientists and science teachers to produce content designed for the classroom. On the site, readers may click on either High School or University to choose their target audience. Topics may be divided into Physical or Biological sciences (or choose “Any” to peruse all articles). Discussion questions are listed throughout. In addition, each article is accompanied by Activities and Teaching Resources, which can be downloaded as PDF files.
  • After negotiations, WU Libraries have been able to maintain the majority of subscriptions that were paid through the subscription agent which declared bankruptcy a few months ago. As always, please report any problems accessing electronic journals (see below).
  • Please report E-Journal access problems promptly! This is the time of year when we lose our online access to a few titles; which titles is unpredictable of course. The sooner we can report these issues the sooner they can be resolved. To report problems, please just email Alison or you can use the EJ problem report form if you prefer. Thank you.
