Understanding the collective collection : towards a system-wide perspective on library print collections by Lorcan Dempsey( Book )
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 34 libraries worldwide
A compilation of previously-published articles and reports authored by OCLC Research staff and collaborators and published between 2006 and 2013. This collection focuses on the changes in focus, boundaries and value of library collections as the shift from primarily hardcopy (e.g., print) collections to digital resources and networks occurs in libraries

Real options and the management of R & D investment : an analysis of comparative advantage, market structure, and industry dynamics in biotechnology by Brian F Lavoie( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
A real options model of investment with uncertain cost was used to analyze the source of the US comparative advantage in biotechnology vis-a-vis Europe, its closest rival. Empirical evidence suggests two sources of heterogeneity in the biotechnology R & D process: US biotechnology firms, on average, invest in R & D at a faster per-period rate, and face a less uncertain domestic regulatory regime, than European biotechnology firms. This leads to a cross-country asymmetry in strategies for managing the option to invest in biotechnology R & D: more specifically, US firms impose a less rigorous decision criterion, vis-a-vis European firms, to evaluate and manage their biotechnology R & D investment opportunities
The Open Archival Information System reference model : introductory guide by Brian F Lavoie( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Collection directions : some reflections on the future of library collections and collecting by Lorcan Dempsey( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This article takes a broad view of the evolution of collecting behaviors in a network environment and suggests some future directions based on various simple models. The authors look at the changing dynamics of print collections, at the greater engagement with research and learning behaviors, and at trends in scholarly communication. The goal is to provide context within which libraries can discuss changing patterns of investment across collection categories. The authors argue that the network is reconfiguring not only individual academic libraries but also the whole library system, as reduced transaction costs facilitate the unbundling of functions and their consolidation in network platforms and with other external service providers
The evolving scholarly record by Brian F Lavoie( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Presents a conceptual framework of the nature and scope of the evolving scholarly record to help organize and drive discussions about the evolution of scholarship. The framework presents a high-level view of the categories of materials the scholarly record potentially may encompass, as well as the key stakeholder roles -- and configurations of those roles -- associated with the scholarly record

Print management at "Mega-scale" : a regional perspective on print book collections in North America by Brian F Lavoie( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Using a mega-regions ("geographical regions defined on the basis of economic integration and other forms of interdependence") framework to model regional consolidation of shared print book library collections, this report explores a counterfactual scenario where local US and Canadian print book library collections are consolidated into regional shared collections. The analysis in this paper builds upon findings from the OCLC Research report, Cloud-sourcing Research Collections: Managing Print in the Mass-digitized Library Environment (2011), and draws upon bibliographic and library holdings data from the WorldCat database
Strength in numbers : the Research Libraries UK (RLUK) collective collection by Constance Malpas( Book )
2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This report represents the culmination of narrowly scoped research collaboration between RLUK and OCLC focused on developing a shared understanding of the collective collection of RLUK libraries as they are represented in WorldCat
The Realities of research data management by Rebecca Bryant( file )
1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Incentives or motivations to acquire RDM (Research Data Management) capacity are multi-faceted and flow from different sources. Based on our case studies of University of Edinburgh (U,K.), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (U.S.A.), Monash University (Australia), Wageningen University & Research (Netherlands), as well as the broader RDM landscape, we organized these incentives into four broad categories: Compliance, Evolving scholarly norms, Institutional strategy, and Researcher demand
Stewardship of the evolving scholarly record : from the invisible hand to conscious coordination by Brian F Lavoie( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The scholarly record is increasingly digital and networked, while at the same time expanding in both the volume and diversity of the material it contains. The long-term future of the scholarly record cannot be effectively secured with traditional stewardship models developed for print scholarly materials. This paper discusses the evolving scholarly record in the context of challenges raised for securing its long-term preservation and accessibility. We present a view of the salient features of future stewardship models adapted to the characteristics of a digital, networked scholarly record, and discuss practical implications of implementing these models
The realities of research data management by Rebecca Bryant( file )
1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Profiles of RDM (Research Data Management) services at the University of Edinburgh (U,K.), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (U.S.A.), Monash University (Australia), Wageningen University & Research (Netherlands)

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The Keeping Research Data Safe 2 (KRDS2) project has built on [the first Keeping Research Data Safe study] and delivered the following: 1) A survey of cost information for digital preservation, collating and making available 13 survey responses for different cost datasets; 2) The KRDS activity model has been reviewed and its presentation and usability enhanced; 3) Cost information for four organisations (the Archaeology Data Service; National Digital Archive of Datasets; UK Data Archive; and University of Oxford) has been analysed in depth and presented in case studies; 4) A benefits framework has been produced and illustrated with two benefit case studies from the National Crystallography Service at Southampton University and the UK Data Archive at the University of Essex
Not scotch, but rum : the scope and diffusion of the Scottish presence in the published record by Brian F Lavoie( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This report uses Scotland as a case study to illustrate the concept of a national presence in the published record. The concept of a national presence is defined and operationalized in WorldCat data through a methodology that emphasizes machine processing with minimal manual intervention. The Scottish national presence in the published record is extracted from the global library resource represented in WorldCat, and characterized along a variety of dimensions. In addition, library holdings data is used to track the international diffusion and impact of the Scottish national presence within the context of the published record
Keeping research data safe : a cost model and guidance for UK universities by Neil Beagrie( file )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This study has investigated the medium to long term costs to Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) of the preservation of research data and developed guidance to HEFCE and institutions on these issues. It has provided an essential methodological foundation on research data costs for the forthcoming HEFCE-sponsored feasibility study for a UK Research Data Service
Preservation health check : monitoring threats to digital repository content by Wouter Kool( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This report summarizes findings arising from the Preservation Health Check (PHC) project undertaken by OCLC Research in partnership with the Open Planets Foundation to: 1) analyze the quality of preservation metadata created and in use by operational repository and deposit systems, and, 2) evaluate the potential of such metadata for assessing digital preservation risks. The goal of the PHC was to explore a use case (preservation metadata supplied by the Bibliothèque Nationale de France) where preservation metadata could be used to support a particular aspect of digital preservation repository operations
The realities of research data management by Rebecca Bryant( file )
1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Explores findings related to the idea of a RDM (Research Data Management) service bundle in the context of four case study partners -- University of Edinburgh (U,K.), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (U.S.A.), Monash University (Australia), Wageningen University & Research (Netherlands) -- examining how each university scoped their local RDM service bundle in light of each institution's broader institutional and external environments. In each case, the choices made--and the resulting RDM service bundle reflect the particular circumstances of the university in question. While each university is unique, other institutions may see something of themselves in one or more of the universities examined, and the case studies may serve as models or patterns to inform local RDM planning in other contexts
Right-scaling stewardship : a multi-scale perspective on cooperative print management by Constance Malpas( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This report explores regional-scale cooperative print strategies in the context of a local collection (OSU - Ohio State University Libraries) participating in a regionally-scaled, consortial (CIC - Committee on Institutional Cooperation), shared print initiative. The goal is to provide an empirically-based assessment of the potential for a distributed cooperative strategy for print books, based on the principle of a shared, centrally-managed core, and a network of local collections. The report offers a statistical analyses of the OSU print book collection and the CIC collective print book resource and includes statistical information about interlibrary-loan (ILL) traffic patterns
