This week I am in Chicago, IL for the HathiTrust Annual Members Meeting as well as some side meetings for the HT Program Steering Committee and the HT Board. We will be talking about the latest accomplishments of the HathiTrust Research Center as well as work that we have done in the Scholar’s Commons and Scholarly Commons at Indiana University and the University of Illinois Libraries. We are meeting in the Big 10 Center in Rosemont which is a great place for a meeting.

Presenters: Steven J. Bell – Temple University, Robert H. McDonald – Indiana University, Cliff Landis – Georgia State University, Steve Gilbert, Beth Dailey, and others
From Research References to Family Pix
Effective Practices in Personal Digital Archiving for Faculty and Students
On April 17 in FridayLive! we began “Saving Our Stuff,” but we discovered that there was greater interest and more to discuss than fit in that hour. Based on comments and requests, we scheduled this follow-up to go deeper into these 3 main categories:
Select, Organize, Make your own backup – How? Options & Cautions
- Disaster prep; Preservation; Save private copies or publicly accessible copies.
- Enable Refind/Retrieve via Cloud, Auto Backup Resources (e.g., Evernote, DIIGO Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Scholar, Amazon Cloud, iCloud, Carbonite, Sugarsync,Transporter, etc.) Free/Fee
- Rely on Wayback Machine? For what? Wayback Machine does not access our [non-public] past Blackboard or Moodle courses
- LMS Options, Limitations
“Fair Use” vs. CASE method = Copy And Steal Everything… vs. Other Alternatives
CREATE: Find, Adapt, Select, Protect, Organize(e.g., DIIGO, Google Scholar, Evernote)
USE: Citation, Permission & Payment: Enable Refind/Retrieve/Usage; via Permission, Citation Tools, Digital Object Identifiers, Creative Commons, ImageCodr,
