March 2011 - News Archive
Boulder Labs researchers are invited to review the prototype and share suggestions (also linked from the prototype page) in directing the future appearance and functionality of the interface for Science articles.
Online access to several journals published by Taylor and Francis has been suspended until further notice. This affects only articles published in 2011; all earlier journals remain available online at: http://library.bldrdoc.gov/ej.html. To obtain 2011 articles from these journals, please place your requests via ILLiad. The following journals are affected:
Open Attribute is an add-on to either Firefox or Google, which facilitates copying of attributions for creative commons (CC) content. From the Open Attribute page, follow these steps:

National Library Week is April 11-15. In celebration, we are proud to present three seminars from visiting speakers, on the issues of records, data, and bibliographic management:
Scientific Records: Preserving the Past to Protect the Future presented by Mark Ferguson, Director, Records Management Programs, and Eric Bittner, Archivist, National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), Rocky Mountain Region. Monday, April 11, 11:00am-12:00pm, DSRC GC402. Scientific records are a distinct class of information requiring cradle-to-grave management. Without proper stewardship important data will be lost and the scientific missions of NOAA, NIST and NTIA will be compromised. NARA is mandated by Congress to be the official archive for all government documents including such scientific information as: project case files, research notebooks, laboratory logbooks, equipment drawings, project proposal records, and data request records. NARA facilities maintain the climate controlled, acid-free environment needed for long term preservation of documents. In their presentation Mark and Eric take you on a step-by-step tour through the life-cycle of government records. Join us on the 11th to learn how NARA can help you preserve records for future generations of researchers.
Writing Your Data Management Plan with David Anderson, NOAA Paleoclimatology Branch Chief and Director, World Data Center for Paleoclimatology NOAA's National Climatic Data Center. Tuesday, April 12, 12:00pm-1:00, DSRC GC402. Whether you need to include a data management plan in your NSF proposal, want to make data exchange in your field as transparent as possible, or just aim to maximize the visibility of your science in the Internet World, this workshop is for you. Earth scientists face increasing pressure to share their results not just in journals, but in many other settings. Data produced sometimes long ago for one purpose are now being successfully applied to emerging problems in entirely different disciplines. A concrete data management plan developed early in your research project can make you and your data more visible, more successful, and increase the impact of your science. The speaker will provide an overview into the world of successful data stewardship, examine emerging standards and trends, and provide concrete steps for managing your Earth Science data. He will present a roadmap to completion of the recently distributed NSF data management requirement, and will conclude with a question and answer session.
EndNote X4 Inside and Out: An Open Session with Doug Nguyen of Thomson-Reuters. Thursday, April 14, 10:30am-12:00pm, DSRC GC402. Meet with Thomson Reuters EndNote trainer Doug Nguyen and bring your thorniest questions. This open format session will benefit both new and advanced users, where you have a chance to find out what's new in EndNote X4, and how to use these features effectively. Unlock the secrets of this powerful bibliographic management software, and discover how EndNote might help you in ways you've never imagined!
All Boulder Labs staff are welcome for these seminars. Mark your calendars, and celebrate National Library Week with us!
