Turning Data into Better Decisions With Endeca Latitude 2

With its latest announcement today, June 13, Endeca Technologies, Inc., aims to make business intelligence (BI) more agile with Endeca Latitude 2, the latest major release of the company's enterprise agile business intelligence platform.

Weekly News Digests
Speech-Indexed Multimedia in Scientific Search Portals
The DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) announced a new tool in scientific discovery technology. Now citizens and researchers can search for both written and spoken words in an entire range of media using OSTI's new, speech-indexed multimedia within large scientific search portals. To this point, online searches for scientific information have been limited to text, such as within scientific papers. The new development uses unique speech-recognition search technology in combination with OSTI's two federated search portals, ScienceAcceleator.gov and WorldWideScience.org, which search a range of DOE and worldwide databases, respectively. This vastly extends the reach of federated searching and could lead to new connections and new breakthroughs.
ebrary Announces New Corporate Computing Ebook Collection
ebrary announced the availability of its new Corporate Computing subscription database. The collection features more than 210 titles in Certification & Compliance, Databases, Software Engineering, Internet & Web Development, and other subject areas from Wiley, Elsevier, Taylor & Francis, and other leading publishers. The selection, which is also available for purchase, may be previewed by visiting http://corptitles.ebrary.com and clicking on Corporate Computing.
The New Physical Archive of the Internet Archive
Internet Archive announced it is building a physical archive for the long-term preservation of one copy of every book, record, and movie it is able to attract or acquire. Because it expects day-to-day access to these materials to occur through digital means, the physical archive is designed for long-term preservation of materials with only occasional, collection-scale retrieval. Because of this, it can create optimized environments for physical preservation and organizational structures that facilitate appropriate access. A seed bank might be conceptually closest to what it has in mind: storing important objects in safe ways to be used for redundancy, authority, and in case of catastrophe.

Sources for Free Ebooks and Ereader Software
by Paula J. Hane
In late May, BookExpo America week kicked off with IDPF's annual Digital Book 2011 conference. Judging from the product announcements and buzz from the events, ebooks are hot, hot, hot! Kobo, which partners with Borders, announced that its new $130 E-ink touchscreen reading device would be available in June. Barnes & Noble announced a $139 black-and-white E-Ink touchscreen e-reader. Amazon dropped the price of its $189 3G Kindle with Special Offers to $164. Amazon also reportedly told U.S. publishers that it will begin accepting files in EPUB format in the near future, and these files will be readable on the Kindle. With the acceleration of sales of ebook readers and so much interest in ebooks, it seems as if it's a good time to look at good sources to get free ebooks. I will also discuss free ereader software as an alternative to buying dedicated devices.

INTERNET LIBRARIAN INTERNATIONAL

THE LIBRARY INNOVATION CONFERENCE

 October 17 & 18, London

ILI's Programme Director, Val Skelton, celebrates librarian superpowers. 
Librarians are leaders in tech, organizational influencers, expert marketers (often working with a zero budget), change managers, skilled data crunchers and expert internet searchers--and so much more. ILI's conference programme celebrates the incredible range of roles, skills, and initiatives librarians are carrying out every day. Over two days this October, six conference tracks highlight the importance of the internet librarian's role.

THE NEW LIBRARY, THE NEW LIBRARIAN – exploring some of the strategies, structures, teams, skills, services and collaborations librarians are using to ensure they stay at the cutting edge.

USERS, UX, AND USAGE – understanding how libraries are working with users to redesign services, spaces, and to understand usage.

CONTENT CREATIVITY – investigating how libraries are creating, curating, and marketing digital collections, how librarians are publishers in their own right, and how they are driving collaborative content creation.

FIGHT THE FAKE, FIND THE FACTS – celebrating two of the librarian's super powers--advanced search techniques and nurturing information integrity--in a post-truth/multi-truth era.

MARKETING THE LIBRARY – sharing stories of librarians who are influencing use and expanding audiences for their services and collections from the DJ librarian to the digital storyteller.

NEW SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATIONS – exploring why the scholarly communications landscape is changing, and what this means for libraries and information professionals.

In addition to a series of one-hour workshops - ILI Extra - covering a wide range of specialised skills and topics, from tech topics to personal development, ILI also hosts two one-day pre-conference workshops:

Websearch Academy 2017 explores the intricacies of research on the web. Our global expert speakers look at advanced search, evaluation of search engines, apps relevant to serious research, social media search, and analysis of search results.

Marketing Your Library Service: Principles and Actions--In libraries we spend so much time curating our content and services that sometimes we don’t put enough focus on telling people about what we do. We do so much, but how do we ensure people hear about what we offer and understand what we do?
