3D Technologies at IUPUI University Library Oh the Possibilities!

 In a rapidly changing technology environment it was only a matter of time that we would see some really cool things happening with 3D technology-particularly 3D scanning. University Library is embracing 3D scanning technology and finding ways to compliment the scanning initiatives that are already taking place with our cultural heritage and community partners. We recently purchased a portable Creaform GoScan scanner to begin capturing 3D artifacts.

Content for Virtual Reality in the Library

In December 2015, I visited the National Library and Archives of Quebec – Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ) – to see the exhibition of “The Library at Night – Great libraries of the world in a virtual-reality universe.” What made this exhibition unique was that visitors explored the 10 world libraries in a virtual environment by wearing a Samsung Gear VR (Virtual Reality) headset.

Making Our Library Better through Metadata

As the head of Bibliographic and Metadata Services (BAMS), I coordinate the metadata creation for the vast array of digital collections produced by the IUPUI University Library Center for Digital Scholarship. The involvement of catalogers in the process of metadata creation has brought an expertise in description to and enriched our digital collections. Additionally, this work has provided variety to the work of our catalogers and helped them to learn new skills that will take them into the future.

Want Readers? ResearchGate vs the Institutional Repository

Here’s a question I get at least a few times every month—I should really start keeping count … it goes something like this: “But I already have a ResearchGate profile, what’s the advantage of keeping other sites about my work up-to-date?” (Sometimes it’s “Academia.edu,” but less and less often on my campus.) It’s a hard question to answer. In part because it assumes so much—that RG is the baseline, that other sites have the same functions, that the advantages are comparable. It’s also a difficult question to answer because it’s often not the real question.
