  1. Teaching 21st Century Knowledge Management Skills: A Carpentry Approach to Open Data, Software, and Publication

    Peretsman-­Clement, Gail; Wrublewski, Donna
    Today's researchers are challenged to master an ever-expanding and interlinked set of information and publishing skills in the rapidly evolving scholarly web. An emerging approach, called carpentry, teaches researchers at all career stages best practices and efficient tools for handling, sharing, publishing, and providing fair attribution for research outputs of all types: data, software, and papers. The ultimate aim of software, data and author carpentry is to support more open, transparent, and reusable research to advance and strengthen science in the digital era. This workshop will introduce you to principles of carpentry, teach you a carpentry module on examining, cleaning,...

  2. Sharing Research Openly with Creative Commons: An AuthorCarpentry Lesson

    Clement, Gail P.
    This lesson covers the basics of copyright, open licensing, and the public domain with particular focus on using Creative Commons licenses and waivers to share research outputs openly. Specific skills demonstrated include selecting and applying a CC license or waiver; evaluating the reuse conditions associated with a CC-licensed work; and attributing a work distributed with a CC license or waiver.

  3. Collaborative Writing and Publishing with LaTeX: An AuthorCarpentry Lesson

    Hammersley, John

  7. Open Access adoption at Caltech

    Porter, George S.
    Insights into OA adoptions and migrations from commercial publishers in several different fields of research by Caltech faculty.

  8. Scientific Serials Lists

    Roth, Dana L.
    This article describes the need for user-oriented serial lists and the development of such a list in the California Institute of Technology library. The results of conversion from EAM to EDP equipment and subsequent utilization of COM (Computer-Output-Microfilm) is reported.

  9. Evolving library services in the ever-​changing world of chemical information: From printed to electronic to networked

    Wrublewski, Donna T.; Porter, George S.; Painter, Joy; Buxton, Kristin; Cleary, Lindsay B.
    Access to chem. information has evolved dramatically over the past 50 years, from printed to electronic to networked. Channeling and focusing this torrent of information to meet the specific needs of researchers has increased exponentially over time, and has required librarians to become beta testers, instructors, and negotiators. Dana Roth's contributions to chem. information, and to the field of librarianship as a whole, cannot be overestimated. This talk will highlight key contributions that Roth has made to the relationships between the Caltech Library and publishers, and between the Library and the campus research community. These relationships continue to flourish and...

  10. To classify or not to classify ... a rejoinder

    Roth, Dana Lincoln
    Classification of journals is not always advisable. Reasons are given for filing science journals by title, and suggestions are made concerning the arrangement of science collections.

  11. SPRESIweb 2.1, a Selective Chemical Synthesis and Reaction Database

    Roth, Dana L.
    InfoChem's SPRESIweb 2.1, launched in January 2005, offers both structure, chemical reaction, property data, and text searching via the Internet. SPRESIweb's integrated structure and reaction databases are derived from articles indexed from over 1350 journals and conference publications, in addition to chemical patents, published between 1974 and 2002. SPRESIweb provides access to 4.5 million compounds and 3.6 million reactions from 565 000 references including 156 000 patents. In addition, SPRESIweb offers over 28 million chemical, physical, and biological property data values. As an aside, the Chemical Abstracts Service has enhanced its REG File records with InfoChem's physical property data and its CASReact...

  12. The Use of LAN in an Integrated Library System

    Card, Sandra
    A description of the development of CITNET, a LAN (Local Area Network) at Caltech in the early 1980s.

  13. Extending the Online Catalog

    Roth, Dana L.
    An outline of the proposed online analytic catalog of books, serials, journals, and technical reports at the California Institute of Technology, with descriptions of procedures to augment the basic MARC records available through OCLC.

  14. Format-Dependent and National Abstracts/Indexes in a Science Library

    Roth, Dana L.
    The juxtaposition of the recent announcement by University Microfilms of its Japanese Technical Abstracts, the recent offering by UNV Science Press of Chinese Science Abstracts, and continuing advertisements by ISI for their Index to Scientific & Technical Proceedings and Index to Scientific Book Contents raise a bothersome question in my mind. Namely, are format-dependent or "national" abstracts/indexes useful tools in a science/engineering library's reference collection?

  15. The Serials Crisis Revisited

    Roth, Dana L.
    There are striking parallels between the current serials crisis and the crisis of 1981. Caltech's response was significantly different, however, in large part due to a much better understanding of the effect of foreign exchange rates in subscription prices of scientific and technical journals. Results of a 1981 journal cancellation project are also reported. These reveal that over 40% and 80% of the cited references in the publications of Caltech's biologists and chemists came from only 13 and 80 journals respectively.

  16. Citation Searching: Alternatives to the Web of Science

    Roth, Dana L.
    This talk focused on databases that provide citation searching alternatives to Web of Science. They include examples from the following groups: multi-subject comprehensive, multi-subject publisher, subject specific, and patent.

  17. Collection Evaluation in a World of Shrinking Budgets : a Measures Toolkit for Librarians

    Roth, Dana L.
    This talk focused on personal experiences with Caltech's document delivery system (DDS) and evaluation of journal subscriptions over 40 years, beginning in 1965. The DDS was first based on paper photocopy request forms, transitioning to electronic forms in 1999 and finally to populated forms from Web of Science records. Successful evaluation of journal subscriptions depends on educating faculty about costs, use, etc.

  18. TOC/DOC: “It Has Changed the Way I Do Science”

    Douglas, Kimberly; Roth, Dana L.
    In 1988, Caltech initiated an automated service that combined local access to the comprehensive source information from ISI's SciSearch database (recently renamed Science Citation Index Expanded) with its existing document delivery service. This automated service (TOC/DOC, which refers to Tables of Contents/Document Delivery) has undergone a conceptual change from a catalog of locally held journal articles to a more widely based, retrospective service, which has literally "changed the way science is done at Caltech."

  19. Caltech: Using our IR with Campus Research Groups

    Painter, Joy; Porter, George S.
    We have expanded the IR into a service that meets the needs of groups and centers on campus. As research dollars become scarce, research support often comes with a requirement to demonstrate a return on investment (ROI). The IR can help groups and centers meet this requirement by assisting with publications lists.

  20. Literature Searching Methodology

    Roth, Dana L.
    Descriptions of analytical methods and instrumental techniques are found in an astonishing variety of resources. Because of this wide variety of sources and the extensive time period over which they have been published, developing an effective literature searching methodology is absolutely essential for students, research faculty, and practicing chemists. This article covers traditional methodologies and basic resources. In addition, recent widespread adoption of electronic journals and reference works, plus the virtually universal adoption of Google searching, are substantially transforming literature searching methodology.
