New European Library Portal Launched
by Katherine Allen
The European Library is a new discovery service that provides access to the collections of the national libraries of 46 European countries, plus a growing number of research libraries. Content accessible from the new service includes rare books, manuscripts, images, and video. The service allows users to cross-search 200 million records, covering more than 24 million pages of full-text information and more than 7 million digital objects. Users can export records to reference management services such as Mendeley, and from the end of 2012, registered users will be able to download and re-use metadata free of charge. To facilitate further research, links are provided to other websites in the Europeana group.
Plum Analytics Maps Success in Open Access Scholarship
by Barbara Quint
Another trendy term has arrived—altmetrics, a contraction of the phrase "alternative metrics." The term refers to a group of different techniques and technologies all meant to wrestle with the issues of scholarship moving to digital venues. The issues include filtering good/better/best from bad/worse/worst, relieving the "firehose as drinking fountain" challenge of keeping up with digitally borne scholarship, and effectively replacing or reinforcing traditional measures of success in scholarship (e.g., prestigious journals, positive peer review, cite counts, etc.). A new small startup, Plum Analytics, has moved into the altmetrics field. It offers universities and other research institutions a way to track how researchers on staff have fared in the open access (OA) milieu.

Many libraries are coping with decreasing budgets while at the same time experiencing increased demand for content and services. Challenges include limited availability of ebooks from publishers, increasing demands for tech support with ebook readers and mobile devices, cumbersome borrowing processes, and minimal discoverability of ebook content.
