Virtual books

"Within the British Library's Online Gallery exists a gem called Virtual Books. Here, readers will find a collection of great books that can be viewed online using the library's own award-winning "Turning the Pages" software. A great place to start is by scoping out the six works displayed on the landing page, which include selections from the great Indian epic, The Ramayana, draft scores of Handel's Messiah, a handful of Leonardo da Vinci's sketches, and other masterpieces. From there, readers may like to explore the Most Viewed and Recent Additions sections. To explore items, simply click on a title. The book then takes a moment to load, but the Turning the Pages format lets you read, listen, rotate, zoom, and view the original writing next to modern, easily viewable font transliterations" (via Scout Report Volume 21, Number 34). http://www.bl.uk/onlinegallery/virtualbooks/index.html

Unter den "Virtuellen Büchern" befinden sich ... Händels Messias, der Codex Sinaiticus, Jane Austens Frühwerk, Auszüge aus Scotts Tagebuch seiner Antarktis-Expedition, eine Bibel-Ausgabe aus Äthiopien und eine hebräische Bibel ...

Scholarly Communications Lead

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

möchten Sie Einfluss auf die Strategie einer renomierten Nationalbibliothek nehmen und die Open Access-Landschaft international beinflussen? Dann interessiert Sie vielleicht unsere Stellenausschreibung für die neugeschaffene Position als Scholarly Communications Lead an der British Library.

Bevor Sie wegen Brexit die E-Mail gleich wieder löschen: Die British Library ist immer noch eine Organisation mit einem internationalen Auftrag und internationalem Team, und daran wird sich auch nichts ändern. London ist immer noch eine sehr weltoffene Stadt – in meinem Ortsteil wurden 78.6% der Stimmen für die EU abgegeben. Zudem zeichnet sich ab, dass EU-Staatsbürger, die 2019 im Land sind, das unbefristete Aufenthaltsrecht behalten werden. Also lesen Sie bitte weiter und bewerben sich gegebenenfalls– schlimmstenfalls können Sie UK nach ein paar Jahren mit guter Auslandserfahrung wieder verlassen.

Die British Library stellt sich gerade als (digitaler) Forschungsdienstleister neu auf, mit einem Fokus auf Open Science. Dazu habe ich in meiner Abteilung eine Research Infrastructure Services-Einheit eingerichtet, die sich auf Data-, Discovery-, Repository- und Scholarly Communications-Services spezialisiert. Als Scholarly Communications Lead würden Sie eng mit mir zusammenarbeiten, um die OA Policy und Strategie der BL weiterzuentwickeln, aktuelle Services zu verbessern und neue zu planen und einzuführen. Das umfasst Pläne für Open Access Discovery Services, Langzeitarchivierung und nationale Repositorieninfrastruktur. Ich suche auch jemand, der die Bibliothek in nationalen und internationalen Gremien vertreten kann. Einen Überblick über unsere Pläne finden Sie hier: https://www.slideshare.net/TorstenReimer/everything-available-the-strategy-for-the-british-librarys-research-services

British Library: Bibliotheken können das Internet überdauern

Roy Keating, der Direktor der British Library, äußerte in einem Interview mit dem britischen „Tele-graph“ sein Erstaunen darüber, wie viele „smarte Menschen“ immer noch hinterfragen, ob Biblio-theken im digitalen Zeitalter Bestand haben werden. Bibliotheken zu bewahren sei mit zahllosen Werten verbunden, die es zu verteidigen gälte. Dazu zählte insbesondere Vertrauen, denn Biblio-theken könnten beweisen, dass sie über das mächtigste und belastbarste Netzwerk überhaupt verfügten. Diese Werte seien dem Internet vorausgegangen und würden es - so Keating – „wenn wir es richtig machen, auch überdauern“. ... „Wenn wir über Bibliotheken sprechen, dann wird mir von ihren alten und traditionellen Werten berichtet. Einige denken nun, diese werden von neuen Werten wie mehr Offenheit, Vernetzung und Virtualität ersetzt. Unsere leidenschaftliche Überzeugung in der British Library ist es jedoch, an beides zu glauben. Und dies ist der großartige Reichtum der Bibliotheken und was sie künftig sein können“, so Keating. Er führte weiter aus, dass Bibliotheken im Zeitalter des Internet für Freiheit, Schutz der Privatsphäre sowie Schutz der Suche und des Ausdrucks, für Sicherheit und bei Bedarf auch für Zurückgezogenheit stünden. Wichtig seien insbesondere auch Angebote in Kommunen mit einem hohen Anteil von Armut. ... http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/hay-festival/11627276/Libraries-could-outlast-the-internet-head-of-British-Library-says.html
