Code4lib Day 2 Morning: Notes & TakeAways

I didn’t take full notes on all the presentations. I like to just sit back and listen to some of the presentations, especially if there are a lot of visuals, but I do have a few notes.

Full Notes for the following sessions:

Building Research Applications with Mendeley

by William Gunn, Mendeley

  • Number of tweets a PLoS article gets is a better predictor of number of citations than impact factor.
  • Mendeley makes science more collaborative and transparent. Great to organize papers and then extract and aggregate research data in the cloud.
  • Can use impact factor as a relevance ranking tool.
  • Linked Data right now by citation, but now have tag co-occurrences, etc.
  • Link to slides.

NoSQL Bibliographic Records: Implementing a Native FRBR Datasotre with Redis

No notes. Instead, have the link to the presentation complete with what looks like speaker notes.

Ask Anything!

  • Things not taught in library school: all the important things, social skills, go talk to the professor directly if you want to get into CS classes.
  • Momento project and UK Archives inserting content for their 404s.
  • In response to librarians lamenting loss of physical books, talk to faculty in digital humanities to present data mining etc., look at ‘train based’ circulations, look at ebook stats.
  • Take a look at libcatcode.org for library cataloguers learning to code as well as codeyear hosted by codeacademy.
