Integrating the Library into New Methods of Research

Event: Integrating the Library into New Methods of Research
Time: Wednesday, October 5th, 2016 at 11:00AM EDT / 1500GMT
The Forum recording is here.

To a high degree researchers depend on digital workflows for discovery, transformation and sharing of knowledge. Yet most of these workflows are fragmented. It’s difficult to work continuously and cumulatively with scientific information for individuals and even more problematic for teams.

The FOLIO project is exploring how we might support academic workflows and new methods of research. How might we integrate fragmented micro research processes for individuals for discovery and transformation of knowledge and how might we help sharing and productivity in teams?

We imagine that it should be possible to link what’s happening in processes across search, subscription, retainment, refinding, analysis and sharing of scientific information and that libraries can play a central role in this.

The forum is the first public sharing of our exploration efforts and early stage ideas. We hope that you’ll participate actively in the discussion and help shape our future vision.

Please bear in mind that the content will be of explorative nature and that we haven’t reached any conclusions yet about how this will influence our project. The ideas we are wrestling with might however have far reaching impact for our project and ultimately the role of academic libraries in the future research landscape.

SPEAKER: Jacob Jaskov, Founder and CEO, The Behaviour Bureau

For developers interested in working with FOLIO, this webinar is a primer on how to engage with the FOLIO code. The webinar will be light on presentation and leave more time for open questions-and-answers.

The presentation portion will cover two main topics. First, provide context around how the FOLIO platform provides integration points for module development and what that means for developing modules in FOLIO. Second, a look at how the platform pieces come together in the user interface to provide functionality to the end user. The presenters will be showing some code and data structures as well as the current user experience prototype.

SPEAKERS:

  • Jakub Skoczen, Architect and Developer at Index Data
  • Kurt Nordstrom, Software Engineer at Index Data
  • Peter Murray, Open Source Community Advocate at Index Data

Are you wondering how to participate in FOLIO? Having trouble figuring out where and how to engage? Never used Discuss? What is Slack? How do I get accounts?

Our next FOLIO Forum will discuss the FOLIO communication channels, what they are used for, how to join, and what you can expect on each channel. In a large, international and distributed project like FOLIO, we need many ways to support conversation, debate, synthesis, aggregation, understanding, consensus, and codification. We are still young in the FOLIO community’s experience, but are borrowing ideas from other projects. We are using Slack, Discourse, Confluence, WebEx, Google Docs, GitHub, WordPress, and Jira – all coming online to support our engagement and interaction needs. We will give you a guide to navigate our websites and communications channels and provide basic primers on the purpose and level of engagement on each. After our presentation, we will have a Q&A session.

SPEAKERS:

  • Peter Murray, Open Source Community Advocate at Index Data
  • Michael Winkler, Managing Director (and cat herder) at OLE
