David Hill Radcliffe of the OUPblog recently wrote, “The publication of the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography in September 2004 was a milestone in the history of scholarship, not least for crossing from print to digital publication. Prior to this moment a small army of biographers, myself among them, had worked almost entirely from paper sources, including the stately volumes of the first, Victorian ‘DNB’ and its 20th-century print supplement volumes. But the Oxford DNB of 2004 was conceived from the outset as a database and published online as web pages, not paper pages reproduced in facsimile. In doing away with the page image as a means of structuring digital information, the online ODNB made an important step which scholarly monographs and articles might do well to emulate.” Read more

Mark van Rijmenam of Big Data Startups recently wrote, “Geospatial data is data that identifies a geographic location on Earth, such as natural or constructed features, oceans, and more. The data is generally stored as coordinates and topology and can be mapped. Geospatial data is all around us and it is growing at a staggering pace of 20% per year. McKinsey Global Institute estimated that location data level stood at 1 petabyte in 2009, excluding data from RFID tags. Geospatial data is created by a vast array of different applications such as satellites, digital cameras, wearables, smartphones, radars, sensor networks, cars, trucks, trains and other transportation. With trends such as the quantified-self, the Internet of Things and the Industrial Internet the amount of geospatial data will grow exponentially in the coming years and you can harness this data to better serve your customers.” Read more

Alexandra Stevenson of The New York Times reports, “You may not admit that you want to watch ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey,’ but Netflix knows you do. Using algorithms that use search data to predict what television shows people want to watch is one way in which companies are using Big Data to connect the dots. It’s captured the imagination of some of Silicon Valley’s most well-known venture capitalists, who have committed more than $10 million to a new early stage fund to help foster start-ups that analyze behavioral data to determine patterns and make predictions about social behavior.” Read more
Joseph Janes, editor of Library 2020, recently shared an excerpt from that publication on LibraryJournal.com. The article envisions two research libraries in the year 2020, one that has embraced technology, and one that has not. Janes prefaces the article, “Transformation. The word is so pervasive these days, it’s a cliché. We’re so inured to it—even tired of it—that it’s becoming background noise, and perhaps some of us don’t hear it anymore. As we all know, accomplishing real transformation is easier said than done. This is the theme taken up by Mary Ann Mavrinac in her essay for Library 2020, which LJ excerpts here. She is the vice provost and dean of River Campus Libraries at the University of Rochester, NY; I met her when teaching a few summers ago at the University of Toronto, when she was running the splendid library at its campus in Mississauga.” Read more
