Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to study a bibliography acquisition approach to verify the bibliography by author name from the integrated system and the metadata from the digital object identifier (DOI) content negotiation proxy. As managed scientific research papers increase at a higher rate, an accurate and automated scheme for bibliography acquisition is desirable.

Design/methodology/approach

This study develops a framework using DOI content negotiation proxy as context for the entering of the bibliography. The bibliography acquisition architecture is composed of three point of views to reduce the complexity: terminal UI, service deployed in the cloud and DOI content negotiation proxy. To simplify the service interface and support many kinds of bibliographic formats, this paper presents the independent BibModel and its template-based model transformation engine to support rich bibliographic records.

Findings

An important finding of this article is that we do some significant development work to combine the open CrossCite DOI content service and DOI resolvers of registry agencies. As more than 95 per cent of DOIs are owned or managed by CrossRef, DataCite, ISTIC and mEDTA DOI registry agencies, it is a common universal approach for the scientific research paper results with DOIs.

Practical implications

Through a simple method built quickly from freely available parts, it is partially successful, suggesting the scheme can be integrated with third-party systems, such as the management system of scientific research results and the electronic journal management system. The analysis of the application’s effect shows the ability to verify the authenticity of the paper by author name from the system and the metadata from our DOI content negotiation proxy.

Originality/value

This paper proposes an original and simple framework to acquire the metadata of bibliographies automatically. No detailed evaluative study has been carried out supporting both DOI content negotiation and resolver. This work shows how to implement the acquisition approach and how to integrate this framework with the current system.

Abstract

Acquisition is an essential element in Universal Availability of Publications. An extensive literature review and a questionnaire survey revealed that few countries have a national acquisition policy but that there are numerous examples of informal arrangements involving substantial numbers of libraries. Factors influencing the existence and nature of a national acquisition system include the level of national commitment to libraries, attitudes of libraries to co‐operation, and administrative responsibility for libraries. National plans must be geared to national needs and circumstances; systems may be centralized or decentralized (by subject or other features), and may be centrally planned or based on voluntary co‐operation. The National Library may have a critical role to play. Five possible models are: a centralized unit of first resort; a decentralized region‐based system; centralized national subject libraries; decentralized responsibilities; and a central collection of journals only. Each country can decide on the appropriate model for its situation and requirements.

Abstract

Appropriately, perhaps, the literature of library acquisitions is largely devoted to topics such as records management, vendor evaluation, selection sources, fugitive materials, budgeting, etc., rather than to the accounting aspects of acquisitions work. In core librarianship textbooks the same pattern applies, a small minority only addressing themselves to purchasing procedures in any detail. This paper attempts to reconsider the applicability of centralized and standardized purchasing procedures such as prevail in large‐scale public or commercial organisations for the purposes of library acquisitions, and offers some comment on the potential impact of automation in this context.

Abstract

This article discusses downloading from OPACs in general and from the INNOPAC system in particular. It begins by setting out a brief philosophy of downloading, providing an introduction to OPAC downloading. It then discusses the practice of OPAC downloading with particular emphasis on tools for capturing and “postprocessing” downloaded flies. Technical and institutional constraints on downloading are addressed and an innovative program for overcoming some of these constraints is described in detail. The article concludes by considering various proposals for improving INNOPAC downloading capabilities.

Abstract

This paper deals with current efforts to control the amorphous range of newsprint ephemeral documents that have dominated the Nigerian literary market for nearly thirty years. The materials which are of inestimable value to social scientists, administrators, politicians, historians, the military and commerce, originate from a variety of sources. Some of the major sources are identified and the lack of any conscious and adequate attempts by their producers to bibliographically control these publications are hereby examined in relation to the special responsibilities of the National Library of Nigeria in the production of a comprehensive national bibliography.

Abstract

A chronological outline of library and bibliographic development prefaces this case‐study. It is not exhaustive and is meant to be only indicative of the evolution of library and bibliographic services and does not in itself replace a detailed history of the subject area.

Abstract

By combining the capabilities of the OCLC M300 Workstation or an IBM PC with Personal Bibliographic Software's Biblio‐Link to OCLC Pro‐Cite software, you can readily reformat data from OCLC records. You can produce bibliographies, acquisitions lists, standardization lists, library guides, reference lists for researchers, bibliographies for library instruction—almost any bibliographic listing you might require. You can even create a formal, fully annotated book‐length bibliography, complete with author, title, and subject indexes. You can also do some database analysis, for example, to standardize abbreviations or count the number of items published in a given year. By adding Pro‐Search, to the process, you can also get help searching BRS and DIALOG databases and merge these records into your database to create a stronger and more varied citations list.

Abstract

This essay is offered as advice to those who contemplate becoming or have recently become bibliographers. I begin with the admonition that neither users' studies, statistical analyses, nor approval plans compensate for a lack of knowledge of disciplinary research interests and bibliographic structure. In the final analysis, the best bibliographers are scholars. They keep current with a discipline's investigations and monitor its evolution. Even if they are unable to engage in detailed discourse on the more esoteric subjects its practitioners study, they understand its topography. That is, they possess a “feel” for what students in a given field find interesting, they understand its epistemology, know its publication trends and favored formats, and have a fine reference librarian's ability to use its bibliographic apparatus.

Abstract

After the European War came to an end it became apparent that there were literally hundreds of thousands of scientific research documents which had been written both by Allied and by Axis scientists but which had never been generally circulated due to their confidential character. On 12 June 1945 President Harry Truman issued an executive order charging the Office of the Publication Board, U.S. Department of Commerce, with dissemination of this information.
