Middle Eastern Texts Initiative Now Published by Brill

LISWire - Thu, 01/18/2018 - 06:49

Leiden / Boston / Paderborn / Singapore / Beijing – 18 January 2018

The Middle Eastern Texts Initiative, previously published by the Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship (Brigham Young University), has transferred its publishing activities to Brill, the international scholarly publishing house.

The Middle Eastern Texts Initiative (METI) is a collection of four different series: the Islamic Translation Series, Eastern Christian Texts, the Library of Judeo-Arabic Literature, and the Medical Works of Moses Maimonides. In the last two decades, scholars have published over 35 volumes in these series, covering editions, translations, and publications of important texts from the golden age of the Middle East, including mystical, theological, philosophical, and medical works by Muslims, Jews, and Christians alike.

“The Middle Eastern Texts Initiative is an exciting project which is run by an impressive group of scholars. Brill is delighted to offer METI a new home,” says Maurits van den Boogert, Senior Acquisitions Editor Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies at Brill.

Brill adds METI to its publishing portfolios in Religious Studies and Middle East and Islamic Studies, and it fits well with Brill's publication activities on the Islamic world. The transfer of METI to Brill allows the Initiative to continue its important work. The first volume published by Brill – Gerrit Bos, On Coitus, a new volume in the Medical Works of Moses Maimonides series – will become available in 2018, as an e-book and in print. Previously published volumes will remain available via BYU’s regular sales channels.

For more information about the transfer contact Mr. Maurits van den Boogert, Sr. Acquisitions Editor at Brill, via [email protected].

LISWire - Wed, 01/17/2018 - 09:11

Facet Publishing have announced the release of the second edition of David Haynes’ Metadata of Information Management and Retrieval: Understanding metadata and its use.

David Haynes has fully revised his classic metadata textbook to bring it up to date with new technologies and standards. It builds on the concept of metadata through an exploration of its purposes and uses as well as considering the main aspects of metadata management and includes brand new chapters on ‘Very Large Data Collections’ and the ‘Politics and Ethics of Metadata’.

Haynes said, ‘My book is international in coverage and sets out to introduce the concepts behind metadata. It focuses on the ways metadata is used to manage and retrieve information. It discusses the roles of metadata in information governance as well as exploring its use in the context of social media, linked open data and big data’.

The book will be essential reading for students of library and information science, museums, library, archives and records management professionals, publishers and managers of institutional repositories and research data sets.

Neil Wilson, Head of Collection Metadata at The British Library said, ‘Metadata has evolved from being a specialist interest to become a mainstream topic of relevance to anyone concerned with accurate and efficient information management. David Haynes has produced a clear, comprehensive and timely overview of how metadata shapes our digital age, why it’s a key organisational asset and how its value can be released through the use of key standards and technologies.’

Empower people to take control of their personal digital information

LISWire - Mon, 01/08/2018 - 07:28

For immediate release

8th January 2018

Academics and the general public alike need help managing the digital information they create and save every day. But how can librarians and archivists translate their professional knowledge into practical skills that novices can apply to their own projects? The Complete Guide to Personal Digital Archiving helps information professionals break down archival concepts and best practices into teachable solutions. Whether it’s an academic needing help preserving their scholarly records, a student developing their data literacy skills or someone backing up family photos and videos to protect against hard-drive failure, this book will show information professionals how to offer assistance.

Featuring contributions from experts working in a variety of contexts this practical resource will help librarians, digital curators and archivists empower people from all walks of life to take charge of their personal digital materials. Key coverage includes explanations of common terms in plain language, quick, non-technical solutions to the most frequent user requests and guidance on how to archive social media posts, digital photographs and web content.

Marshall said, “From the outset, my intention has been for this book to be used as a primer for information professionals who haven’t been quite sure how to approach personal digital archiving (PDA) yet. My hope is that they become not just informed but also excited to pass along critical skills that will help equip members of their communities to have a less painful and more fruitful PDA journey. I am convinced that sharing even simple principles for how to store, share, and preserve digital objects will benefit our users in both their personal and professional lives. The chapters are intentionally practitioner-focused so that after finishing this book, readers will feel ready to start conversations and make amazing things happen within their communities.”

Florida Public Libraries Celebrate Major Milestone with More Than 300 Adults Graduating from Career Online High School

LISWire - Wed, 01/03/2018 - 11:46

Florida Public Libraries Celebrate Major Milestone with More Than 300 Adults Graduating from Career Online High School

Career Online High School helps Florida residents achieve their career and educational dreams

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. – January 3, 2018 – Gale, a Cengage company, today announced that more than 300 adults have graduated from Career Online High School through Florida public libraries since the pilot program launched in 2015. Career Online High School provides qualifying Florida residents the opportunity to earn a free, private, accredited high school diploma. The program is specifically designed to reengage adults into the education system and prepare them for entry into post-secondary education or the workforce.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 2.7 million Florida residents age 25 or older do not have a high school diploma. Lack of high school completion severely limits individuals’ career path and financial outlook, and has a significant economic impact on Florida. To address this, the state began offering Career Online High School through a select number of public libraries. By early 2017, 28 libraries were offering the program and more than 13 graduation ceremonies have taken place at libraries across the state.

“Career Online High School is really having a positive impact and has been instrumental in helping Florida adults accomplish their education and career goals,” said Amy Johnson, Director, Division of Library and Information Services, Florida Department of State. “The success of the program is a great example of how Florida public libraries are contributing to the community by providing educational resources and support that are not only transforming the lives of residents, but are helping to strengthen Florida’s workforce.”

Since the program began, 85% of adults enrolled in Florida’s Career Online High School have either graduated or are still in the program pursuing their private high school diploma. The graduates are a testament to the program’s success at changing the lives of residents.

“I always felt lost and incomplete without a high school diploma. I found myself again through this program; I gained self-confidence,” said Sang Um, who graduated through Lake County Library System. “I am now enrolling in college to study teaching, and one day will work at a school assisting special needs kids.”

Career Online High School helps public libraries bring economic growth to citizens of the community. For example, the average lifetime earnings of a high school graduate with no college is $549,000 , which is $205,009 higher than an adult without a high school diploma. For Florida’s 300 graduates, this translates to $61,503,000 over a lifetime. Additionally, federal, state and local governments stand to gain $2.5 billion in tax revenue and reduced expenses for every 400,000 adults who earn a high school diploma, saving taxpayers money.

Career Online High School is offered at participating public libraries in Florida who award scholarships to qualified learners. Students can access and complete program courses online using library computers or from home, with up to 18 months to finish the program. Additionally, students can complete the program sooner by transferring previously earned high school credits. Concurrently with the diploma, students earn a workforce certificate in one of eight trade areas, ranging from protection officer to customer service to commercial driving.

With Career Online High School, Florida residents can:

• Earn an accredited private high school diploma while preparing for a career in one of eight high-demand, high-growth fields.

• Take classes online, with the flexibility of 24/7 access to classwork.

Backstage begins processing 2.5 million books and 14,000 DVDs on-site at Alderman Library, University of Virginia

LISWire - Tue, 12/19/2017 - 15:06

PROVO, Utah, December 19, 2017 – Backstage Library Works (www.bslw.com) is pleased to announce that it has moved into full production with extensive on-site inventory, cleaning, and cataloging projects for Alderman Library at the University of Virginia. Backstage will be processing 2,528,840 items across four collections, including the general collection, government documents, Tibetan, and DVD collections. Backstage is working closely with library staff, implementing processes to optimize efficiency, guarantee quality, and ensure timely project completion.

Each project will be completed concurrently by up to 22 Backstage technicians, an on-site project manager, and an assistant project manager. The inventory includes customized project profiling, selection for preservation treatment, catalog search of unbarcoded items, cleaning of books and stacks, quality verification, and reshelving.

Full-level cataloging will include LC and OCLC copy cataloging, original cataloging for unmatched items, and on-site scanning of select pages for off-site cataloging. The DVD collection will receive full-level RDA cataloging and shelf-ready processing over a period of 12 months.

Michelle Vermillion, Collections Access Manager for the University of Virginia Library states:

“As we approach the mid-point of our inventory project being handled by Backstage Library Works, I remain pleased with their efficiency, professionalism, and responsiveness. Their on-site project manager has been immensely helpful in guiding this process that would simply not have been possible for our current staff to plan, manage, and execute while maintaining regular activities.

“Completing this inventory will prepare us for our next chapter which is a renovation of the Alderman Library building, which will require the relocation of portions of our collections (during the renovation process).”

Brill adds ‘Revue de Synthèse’ to Journal Program

LISWire - Mon, 12/11/2017 - 06:10

Leiden / Boston / Paderborn / Singapore / Beijing – 11 December 2017

Brill, the international scholarly publisher, adds the renowned, peer-reviewed journal Revue de Synthèse to its growing portfolio of journals in Philosophy. Founded in 1900 by the esteemed philosopher Henri Berr as the Revue de synthèse historique, the journal is now in its seventh series and continues its founders’ intentions in the application of philosophical critique to the study of History, Sociology and Natural Sciences. Brill publishes the Revue de Synthèse on behalf of the Fondation pour la Science, which aims to make academic knowledge in the area of Philosophy and History of Science available to other subject areas and to the public.

Professor Éric Brian, editor of Revue de Synthèse, says: “We are proud that the journal will be published with Brill, a publishing house with such a rich history, a large disciplinary spectrum and a strong international focus. Since 1900, the journal has served as an international forum on historical methods and today builds bridges between Intellectual History, History of Sciences, Social Sciences and scholarship in general, while experimenting during the last decade with a multi-linguistic format. The new partnership fits with the Revue’s centenarian scientific aims and we look forward to seeing the journal reach a broad readership."

Professor Jochen Hoock, President of the Fondation pour la Science adds: "We view this new partnership with Brill as an opportunity to contribute to current reflections among scholars and publishers on the transformation of scientific publishing in our fields. The new cooperation with Brill will strengthen our capacities to fulfill the original international aims of the Fondation since 1924, and of the journal since 1900. We look forward to facilitating international exchange of experiences among scholars on this crucial topic, and of course developments in Intellectual History as promoted by the Revue de Synthèse.”

Jennifer Pavelko, Senior Acquisitions Editor for Philosophy, states: “We are excited by the possibilities this multi-lingual and interdisciplinary journal holds for the Philosophy program at Brill. We hope to enhance and support the journal as it continues to grow.”

Revue de Synthèse will continue under a dedicated editorial team. Volume 138.1-4 will be published by Brill in 2017 and Volume 138.1-2 and 138.3-4 in 2018, online and in print.
