Are people familiar with the Open Conference System? It's an open-source PHP/mySQL system with support for web display, call for papers/program management, and registration:

Throwing this out there, as well.

Subject: Conference size

So, the keynote bomb has gone off.  One of the issues is that it's really
hard to put on a conference. Another conference I used to attend used
Concentra CMS to run their conferences.

I'm just throwing that out there.

I believe ALA has Shibbolized their Drupal sites like ALA Connect.  I'd start with Jenny Levine at ALA.

I think that conference size and character is a complex issue that
won't be solved by simply hiring a production company. That part comes
later.

Subject: CALIFORNIA DIGITAL LIBRARY JOINS PKP AS MAJOR DEVELOPMENT PARTNER IN OPEN ACCESS SCHOLARLY PUBLISHING

--_006_1399A14C25A2514C9C3290964F0135B9135DA164pircexmbx02ADUC_

As the scholarly publishing landscape heats up with more talk of boycotts a=
nd Open Access mandates, research libraries increasingly find themselves at=
a crossroads between publishers and faculty -- and eagerly working to prov=
ide new solutions to entrenched problems.  The California Digital Library's=
(CDL) latest foray into this space, on behalf of the University of Califor=
nia system, focuses on supporting open source publishing infrastructure thr=
ough a major development partnership with the Public Knowledge Project (PKP=
).

As a result of this agreement, the CDL will assist with PKP's ongoing devel=
opment and support of its open source software suite - Open Journal Systems=
(OJS), Open Conference Systems (OCS), and Open Harvester System (OHS), wit=
h Open Monograph Press (OMP) due for release in the coming year.

Chuck Eckman, Dean of Library Services at Simon Fraser University stated: "=
The California Digital Library is widely recognized for its record of innov=
ation and leadership in the domain of scholarly publishing and the SFU Libr=
ary is thrilled at the prospects this new collaborative venture creates for=
advancing our shared scholarly communication goals."  Laine Farley, Execut=
ive Director of CDL, noted, "Not only are we extremely pleased with the fle=
xibility afforded by OJS, we are also delighted to join this growing intern=
ational community and contribute to the future growth of this publishing so=
lution."

The California Digital Library, in partnership with the University of Calif=
ornia campus libraries, supports and encourages open access publishing init=
iatives within the UC system through its eScholarship publishing and instit=
utional repository platform. eScholarship provides a suite of open access, =
scholarly publishing services and research tools that enable departments, r=
esearch units, publishing programs, and individual scholars associated with=
the University of California to have direct control over the creation and =
dissemination of the full range of their scholarship.  Home to 45 peer-revi=
ewed journals (http://escholarship.org/uc/search?smode=3Dbrowse;browse-jour=
nal=3Daa), eScholarship has recently transitioned to OJS as its journal man=
agement and submission system and has integrated OJS with its pre/post-prin=
t, books and working papers repository, which contains more than 45,000 UC-=
affiliated publications.

John Willinsky, Khosla Family Professor of Education at Stanford University=
, Library Scholar in Residence and Professor (Limited Term) in Publishing S=
tudies at Simon Fraser University, and founding Director of PKP stated: "Gi=
ven the leadership, innovation, and engagement shown by CDL in moving schol=
arly communication into a digital era marked by a spirit of greater opennes=
s and sharing aimed at the advancement of learning, this partnership provid=
es a wonderful opportunity for PKP to further explore ways that faculty and=
librarians can work together to make more of what we do more of a public g=
ood."

The California Digital Library provides digital library development and sup=
port for the University of California libraries and the communities they se=
rve.  The CDL Publishing Group delivers open access digital publication ser=
vices to the University of California academic community, supports widespre=
ad distribution of UC research materials, and fosters new models of scholar=
ly publishing through the development and application of advanced technolog=
ies. (For further information contact Catherine Mitchell, director of CDL P=
ublishing at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]
> 510.587.6132.)

PKP is dedicated to improving the scholarly and public quality of research.=
With more than 11,500 installations of Open Journal Systems (OJS); Open C=
onference Systems (OCS); and Open Harvester Systems (OHS) around the world,=
the Public Knowledge Project (PKP) has proven that open source software ca=
n be a game changer in scholarly publishing.

In September 2011, PKP officially launched a major sustainability campaign =
to ensure the continued development and enhancement of its open source soft=
ware suite and to provide better support for the growing PKP user community=
.  To find out more about this initiative and how your site can become a PK=
P sponsor visit the PKP Web site at http://pkp.sfu.ca

Subject: Library tablet app

Hi all I was wondering if anyone's working on a tablet app for your 
library site that takes advantage of the tablet environment.  I'm not 
sure what that is and whether it's that different from a smart phone or 
full-sized computer, but I feel like it is.  I see some library apps in 
the Amazon store, but most of them are iterations of Boopsie software.  
They're OK, but it seems like they could do more.  I just have no idea 
what that "more" is.  What would an app specifically geared toward 
tablet architecture look like?  Would it have a level?  Could you land 
airplanes or launch angry birds at the reference desk?

Subject: Re: Google Analytics w/ Sub-sub-domains

We have actually already discussed that case.  Right now, it is exactly as
you described.  But, those cases cannot explain how 50,000 people can hit
the home page in one day and 48,850 are dropping off.

People might be interested in the solution we came up with for the home
page drop-off problem in a huge place like this:

At first, we had talked about filtering by IP range.  But, that would be a
maintenance nightmare, and it wouldn't allow us to track computers that
did not have the website as the homepage, like staff, mobile, etc.

Then, we realized that we do have control over the machine images in the
public areas.  And, we could set up aliases for the library home page,
like library.yale.edu/image1, library.yale.edu/area2.  So, we could set
the browser home pages to the aliases, and we could tell exactly which
request were coming in from our public computers, and wether they really
were dropping of or not.

Subject: Re: Google Analytics w/ Sub-sub-domains

Yes, the code is not consistent across our pages.  That is the problem I
am trying to solve.  The pages are served by dozens of different systems.
Therefore, I had held off on changing all of them until I knew I had
working code.

At this point, based on my research and the feedback here I will be going
with this:

_gaq.push(['_setDomainName', '.yale.edu']);

After I get that code on the majority of pages, I can start looking into
the separate problems I am having with drop-offs and setting up a profile
that will show me the sub-domains.

Thank you to everyone for the help.

Subject: Re: Job: Head, Digital Projects & Metadata, Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University

Because we are trained in information management, and many of us specialize in management of digital assets. That said, there are many other professions that also have these skills and passion for the digital bit. Since it's Yale, there is likely an employment agreement that the library will hire those with an MLS or equivalent.

Things change slowly in academia - but as librarians explore new roles, so should university libraries consider other types of professions. There's a lot of cross-over.

Interesting point about the flexibility of librarians, but it's certainly
possible to be knowledgeable and experienced with information management
and developing sophisticated metadata systems without having an MLS.  I'm
not reflecting on Yale specifically, but many of the job postings that fit
into this category that I have seen posted to code4lib over the years
require an MLS/MLIS.  I think it's fair to ask why this is the case.

I can't speak for Yale, of course, but when I worked for UNC, there were requirements in place set by General Administration that "Librarians" had to have library degrees, and they were very picky about it. It's unnecessarily exclusionary for most tech-in-libraries positions in my opinion. Institutional cultures are slow to recognize the need for change-and the Library itself may not be responsible for the requirement.

Subject: Re: Job: Head, Digital Projects & Metadata, Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University

Having just posted a position for Systems Librarian, I too have been wondering a lot about this question.  Here, we are faculty librarians and that imbues a certain status (and set of responsibilities, including publishing and service to the institution) that we felt would serve us well.  Rightly or wrongly, faculty often respond better to other faculty as opposed to staff.  Project management, vision, and library experience were all important to us and that is why we posted at a faculty position, which requires the MLIS.  

But our previous Systems Librarian was not faculty, rather, he was at a staff rank and that too was fine--and he managed fine on vision and project management.  We knew that as we went forward with the posting, we would eliminate some really well qualified people because they didn't have the degree (which I sometimes refer to as a union card).  I attended Access 2011 in Vancouver this Fall and met many, many folks that I know would serve this institution and the profession quite well despite not having the MLIS.  But, as I said, we are hiring at a level not so much to reflect the field or abilities of many non-MLISers, but, rather, to reflect our institutional realities and needs.  

Hope that helps a bit.

Interesting point about the flexibility of librarians, but it's certainly possible to be knowledgeable and experienced with information management and developing sophisticated metadata systems without having an MLS.  I'm not reflecting on Yale specifically, but many of the job postings that fit into this category that I have seen posted to code4lib over the years require an MLS/MLIS.  I think it's fair to ask why this is the case.

Hi Paul,

At NCSU Libraries we've built a couple of more special-purpose apps
that target tablet devices, WolfWalk and Suma:

http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/dli/projects/wolfwalk/
http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/dli/projects/spaceassesstool/

The tablet design for WolfWalk is in a native iOS app, while Suma is
entirely web-based. These serve quite different use cases, and the
designs differ accordingly. As a staff-facing data collection tool,
Suma's design is meant to help a small set of trained users complete
data collection tasks efficiently without any data loss. Cory Lown,
who led the WolfWalk iPad design, has posted some excellent slides on
that process:

http://www.slideshare.net/corylown/lessons-from-wolfwalk-interface-design-for-tablets

Hope this helps.

jQuery Mobile (http://jquerymobile.com/) is HTML5 based and supports
tablet layouts. It's quite easy to get into and comes with
comprehensive support and docs/demos. It requires jQuery, but
integrates nicely with other frameworks such as for instance
backbonejs.
