Copyright Clearance Center Launches Open Access Solutions
by Abby Clobridge
On Oct. 11, 2012, the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) debuted its Open Access Solutions, a set of services aimed at supporting publishers in managing their journal content through the CCC's RightsLink platform. While the services are labeled as open access (OA), content in journals using Open Access Solutions is not necessarily OA. Instead, RightsLink provides publishers with the ability to set licenses, permissions, and access criteria at the article level rather than by journal title or by publishing organization. This more granular approach to OA has the potential to assist publishers in complying with research funders' policies and in experimenting with different pricing structures for author processing charges, but a more granular approach to OA also has the potential to add confusion to the already murky landscape, particularly for authors and readers.

FindLaw’s Mobile Essential Uses Responsive Design Technology
FindLaw introduced Mobile Essential, a mobile solution for attorneys that uses responsive design technology to optimize law firm websites so that visitors and potential clients have a premium user experience whether viewing the page from a smartphone, tablet, or desktop. Unlike websites that have a separate mobile web address for mobile device viewing, websites with responsive design configurations automatically respond to the size of a screen so that the entirety of the firm's website, including images and graphics, are viewed consistently across platforms. Responsive design is Google's recommended configuration for mobile web delivery.

Pew Research Center Provides Research and Data on Campaign 2012
by Paula J. Hane
As Barack Obama and Mitt Romney prepared for their first debate on Oct. 3, 2012, the issues at the top of the voters' agenda have changed little since 2008, according to a recent survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. Conducted Sept. 12-16 among 3,019 adults, including 2,424 registered voters, the results show that 87% of registered voters say that the economy will be very important to their vote, while 83% say jobs will be very important to their vote.

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?
