Statistics in Webstats : 2018 will disappear

The application Webstats, which allows members of all networks to obtain their activity statistics, displays - for ergonomic reasons - only those of the last 4 years. In February, the oldest year (2018) will disappear from the interface. Institutions that wish to do so have until 1 February to export the statistics for that year.

Bibliographic Transition

Chapter 11 of Section 3 of RDA-EN, on the identification of communities, is subject to a survey of professionals until 25 January 2022.
The 2022 agenda for the Bibliographic Transition training courses organised by the CRFCB has been published:
The 6th professional day "Metadata in libraries", on 3 December 2021, is online!

National licenses

Springer's Political Science & International Studies collection is available, on a trial basis, to institutions with an account on the National Licences site. At the end of the 6-month test period, the 125 most consulted titles will be definitively acquired as national licences.

PROGRESSREPORT ON THE FIRSTCERCLES PROJECT ON AUTHORITIES: within the Henri-Piéron Library (University of Paris), our colleague Virginie Moreau is working, within the framework of this project, on the enrichment of authority records for persons and communities (universities, laboratories and congresses) in the fields of psychology and psychoanalysis. Nearly 2,000 authority records have been created, and nearly three times as many have been enriched. This tremendous work benefits the entire network.
THE CORRECTED DECISION-MAKING FUNCTIONALITY IN PAPRIKA: the application allows the creation or correction of links from bibliographic records to "People" authority records. In this curation work, the user can be helped by a feature, called "Qualinka", based on an automatic link quality diagnostic program. This functionality, which was malfunctioning, has just been repaired. This is an opportunity for those who didn't know about it to discover and test it!

SYNTHESIS OF THE "CORRESPONDENT TRAINING" SURVEY:Abes would like to thank the 36 correspondents who responded to this survey, the aim of which was to find out about their backgrounds and experiences in order to better identify their training needs. The analysis of the responses will make it possible to develop a new training offer for the network.
UNIVERSITY HERITAGE DISPLAYED DURING THE BIBLIOPAT 2021 DAYS: two presentations were included in the programme of these days last December. The contemporary library presented the new premises that house its collections and the University of Lorraine spoke about the collaboration between the BU and the laboratories for the preservation and exploitation of the university heritage.

    STATUS OF PCPPs : the study "Shared conservation plans in France: a quantitative and qualitative state of the art", published in 2019, has just had its second update, with data for 2021.
    CALL FOR COMMENTS: the cataloguing rules for online continuing resources need to be updated. Their revision, started at the last "CR Managers' Day", continues today with a call for comments (until February 2022) on the first formalised rules. This is a draft, reserved, in this first stage of consultation, for RC managers only: for all, the rules currently in force continue to apply.

    PROFESSIONAL DAY : the 8th annual meeting of the Network Centre Sudoc-PS PACA / Nice took place last November. In addition to a summary of the CR's current activities and the work carried out on the "Unicas and old local press" corpus, the "Alpes Azur Patrimoine" digital library was the subject of a detailed presentation.
    A NEW WEBSITE FOR THE CR PACA / Marseille: this CR, which also manages the departments, regions and overseas collectivities (hence the map on the home page), is now on the web with a new look, sections on reporting tools (including Mir@bel) and on shared conservation.

    Spotlight on

    The Bibliographic Transition is on Wikipedia

    All the articles on the key notions of the bibliographic transition (IFLA LRM, RDA, MARC, BIBFRAME, web of data etc.) have just been updated by the members of the Training group. These articles can be used or quoted in professional training sessions.
    Note: in 2022 the "#1Lib1Ref" operation, which encourages librarians to contribute to the updating of Wikipedia articles (notably to source them), will take place from 15 January to 5 February, then from 15 May to 5 June 2022.
