    Assessment is increasingly important to higher education. Tight budgets and scarce resources demand accountability from the entire academy, including the library. Librarians must be prepared to document the impact of the programs they create, the collections they develop, and the services they offer. Liaison librarians in academic libraries focus on engagement with academic units and outreach to students, faculty, and the community of scholars. In a series of scholarly essays, Assessing Liaison Librarians: Documenting Impact for Positive Change examines how academic libraries assess liaison activities and offers recommendations for documenting the impact of programs and services. Individual chapters address liaison activities relating to collection development; library instruction; research services; engagement and outreach; online, blended and other learning environments, including MOOCs; scholarly communications and information technology; the importance of assessment in the 21st century research library; and professional development of liaisons librarians.

    Advances in medical research, pharmaceuticals, treatment options, and biotechnology are occurring at an explosive rate. As of 2009, there are 19 million of biomedical research abstracts available on MEDLINE and 1.3 billion searches of MEDLINE are done in 2009. Most of the popular search engines, from Google to PubMed, use keyword-based information retrieval methods, often overloading users with irrelevant information. At the same time, keyword-based search engines cannot answer simple biomedical questions, such as "what are the breast cancer treatment drugs" or "what are the breast cancer associated genes". Answering such questions requires machine understandable knowledge to be extracted from free text. My thesis represents an automated system to extract machine understandable biomedical information from MEDLINE abstracts using machine learning and natural language processing ( NLP ) techniques. The system is different from current biomedical information extraction systems in the following: 1. the system is semi-supervised where the only human supervision is a single pattern for each information type; 2. it can be used to extract broad types of information, including named entities and relationships among entities.

    This book builds a research-grounded, theoretical foundation for evidence based library and information practice and illustrates how librarians can incorporate the principles to make more informed decisions in the workplace. The book takes an open and encompassing approach to exploring evidence based library and information practice (EBLIP) and the ways it can improve the practice of librarianship. Bringing together recent theory, research, and case studies, the book provides librarians with a new reference point for how they can use and create evidence within their practice, in order to better meet the needs of their communities. Being Evidence Based in Library and Information Practice is divided into two parts; in the first part the editors explore the background to EBLIP and put forward a new model for its application in the workplace which encompasses 5 elements: Articulate, Assemble, Assess, Agree, Adapt. In the second part, contributors from academic, public, health, school and special libraries from around the world provide an overview of EBLIP developments in their sector and offer examples of successful implementation. The book will be essential reading for library and information professionals from all sectors who want to make more informed decisions and better meet the needs of their users. The book will also be of interest to students of library and information studies and researchers.

    The recent years have seen a tremendous growth in research and developments in science and technology, and an emphasis in obtaining Intellectual Property (IP) protection for one's innovations. Information pertaining to IP for science and technology is siloed into many diverse sources and consists of laws, regulations, patents, court litigations, scientific publications, and more. Although a great deal of legal and scientific information is now available online, the scattered distribution of the information, combined with the enormous sizes and complexities, makes any attempt to gather relevant IP-related information on a specific technology a daunting task. In this thesis, we develop a knowledge-based software framework to facilitate retrieval of patents and related information across multiple diverse and uncoordinated information sources in the US patent system. The document corpus covers issued US patents, court litigations, scientific publications, and patent file wrappers in the biomedical technology domain. A document repository is to be populated with issued US patents, court cases, scientific publications, and file wrappers in XML format. Parsers are developed to automatically download documents from the information sources. Additionally, the parser also extracts metadata and textual content from the downloaded documents and populates the XML repository. A text index is built over the repository using Apache Lucene, to facilitate search and retrieval of documents. Based on the document repository, the underlying methodology to search across multiple information sources in the patent system is discussed. The methodology is divided into two major parts. First, we develop a knowledge-based query expansion methodology to tackle domain terminological inconsistencies in the documents. Relevant knowledge is retrieved from external sources such as domain ontologies. Since our goal is to retrieve a collection of relevant documents across multiple sources, we develop a patent system ontology to provide interoperability between the different types of documents and to facilitate information integration. We discuss the Information Retrieval (IR) framework which combines the knowledge-based query expansion methodology with the patent system ontology to provide a multi-domain search methodology. A visualization tool based on term co-occurrence is developed that can be used to browse the document repository through class hierarchies of domain ontologies. The knowledge-based query expansion methodology is evaluated through formal measures such as precision and recall. A simple term-based search is used as a baseline reference for comparison. Additionally, the results from related works are also used for comparison. A series of common questions asked during patent prior art searches and infringement analysis are generated to evaluate the patent system ontology. A summary of the results and analysis is provided.

    Thinking about the future of libraries, librarianship and the work librarians do is as old as libraries themselves. (No doubt seminars were organized by the Alexandria Librarians Association on the future of the scroll and what to do about the rising barbarian tide.) At no time in our memory, though, have these discussions and conversations been so profound and critical. Here one of today's leading thinkers and speakers about the future of libraries brings together 30 leaders from all types of libraries and from outside librarianship to describe their vision of what the library will be in 2020. Contributors and Library Journal's The Annoyed Librarian were asked to describe the "library of 2020, "in whatever terms they wanted, either a specific library or situation or libraries in general. They were told: "be bold, be inspirational, be hopeful, be true, be provocative, be realistic, be depressing, be light-hearted, be thoughtful, be fun, be yourself, and for heaven's sake, don't be boring." Not that they could be. Broadly representative of important perspectives and aspects within the profession as well as featuring important voices beyond the professional realm, Library 2020 presents thought-provoking and illuminating visions from many points of view. It is both required reading for library leaders and trustees as well as an ideal supplemental text for LIS classes looking at the future of the profession.

    "In the 1860s and 1870s, leading neurologists used animal experimentation to establish that discrete sections of the brain regulate specific mental and physical functions. These discoveries had immediate medical benefits: David Ferrier's detailed cortical maps, for example, saved lives by helping surgeons locate brain tumors and haemorrhages without first opening up the skull. These experiments both incited controversy and stimulated creative thought, because they challenged the possibility of an extra-corporeal soul. This book examines the cultural impact of neurological experiments on late Victorian Gothic romances by Robert Louis Stevenson, Bram Stoker, H. G. Wells and others. Novels like Dracula and Jekyll and Hyde expressed the deep-seated fears and visionary possibilities suggested by cerebral localization research and offered a corrective to the linearity and objectivity of late Victorian neurology"--Provided by publisher.

    It has become increasingly accepted that important digital data must be retained and shared in order to preserve and promote knowledge, advance research in and across all disciplines of scholarly endeavor, and maximize the return on investment of public funds. To meet this challenge, colleges and universities are adding data services to existing infrastructures by drawing on the expertise of information professionals who are already involved in the acquisition, management and preservation of data in their daily jobs. Data services include planning and implementing good data management practices, thereby increasing researchers' ability to compete for grant funding and ensuring that data collections with continuing value are preserved for reuse. This volume provides a framework to guide information professionals in academic libraries, presses, and data centers through the process of managing research data from the planning stages through the life of a grant project and beyond. It illustrates principles of good practice with use-case examples and illuminates promising data service models through case studies of innovative, successful projects and collaborations.

    "Data analysis is changing fast. Driven by a vast range of application domains and affordable tools, machine learning has become mainstream. Unsupervised data analysis, including cluster analysis, factor analysis, and low dimensionality mapping methods continually being updated, have reached new heights of achievement in the incredibly rich data world that we inhabit.Statistical Learning and Data Science is a work of reference in the rapidly evolving context of converging methodologies. It gathers contributions from some of the foundational thinkers in the different fields of data analysis to the major theoretical results in the domain. On the methodological front, the volume includes conformal prediction and frameworks for assessing confidence in outputs, together with attendant risk. It illustrates a wide range of applications, including semantics, credit risk, energy production, genomics, and ecology. The book also addresses issues of origin and evolutions in the unsupervised data analysis arena, and presents some approaches for time series, symbolic data, and functional data. Over the history of multidimensional data analysis, more and more complex data have become available for processing. Supervised machine learning, semi-supervised analysis approaches, and unsupervised data analysis, provide great capability for addressing the digital data deluge. Exploring the foundations and recent breakthroughs in the field, Statistical Learning and Data Science demonstrates how data analysis can improve personal and collective health and the well-being of our social, business, and physical environments.

    This book is organized as a practical guide to writing a biomedical research article. Hence, as you will see from the table of contents, chapters are arranged according to the sequence of tasks that we normally encounter in our writing. The book deals only with writing and submission of manuscripts; there are no directions concerning, for example, the preparation of figures or audiovisual presentations. Furthermore, every chapter is concise; we do not beat topics to death. Exemplars of highly prevalent expressions are given throughout, however the number of examples in the book is not excessive.
