The BitCurator Project, a collaborative effort led by the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities at the University of Maryland, builds on previous work by addressing two fundamental needs and opportunities for collecting institutions: (1) integrating digital forensics tools and methods into the workflows and collection management environments of libraries, archives and museums and (2) supporting properly mediated public access to forensically acquired data.
The project is developing and disseminating a suite of open source tools. These tools are currently being developed and tested in a Linux environment; the software on which they depend can readily be compiled for Windows environments (and in most cases are currently distributed as both source code and Windows binaries). We intend the majority of the development for BitCurator to support cross-platform use of the software. We are freely disseminating the software under an open source (GPL, Version 3) license. BitCurator provides users with two primary paths to integrate digital forensics tools and techniques into archival and library workflows.
This webinar will introduce the BitCurator environment and briefly highlight support for mounting media as read-only, creating disk images, using Nautilus scripts to perform batch activities, generation of Digital Forensics XML (DFXML), generation of customized reports, and identification of sensitive data within data.
Participants who are interested in trying out the software in advance can download and install the BitCurator environment by following the instructions at: http://wiki.bitcurator.net

A publicly available database of documents and photographs relating to Franklin D. Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt is now available. The database is a collaborative effort by the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, the National Archives and Records Administration, Marist College, IBM and the Roosevelt Institute.
This presentation, Enterprise Content Management and Digital Libraries: Cultural Clash and Collaboration Opportunity, was presented at the March 2012 Library Technology Conference at Macalester College. However, it was just recently uploaded to SlideShare.
Compares and contrasts how libraries and businesses manage and share their digital information and assets. It explores the current conversation in two private liberal arts institutions, Bethel University and Macalester College and how they are approaching the conversation around managing digital assets on their campus.
Thanks to @LibSkrat for finding.

“A major oral history project to gather the life stories of British scientists has culminated today in the launch of a new online archive by the British Library. Voices of Science
is drawn from a National Life Stories
programme ‘An Oral History of British Science’
, and features interviews with 100 leading UK scientists and engineers, telling the stories of some of the most remarkable scientific and engineering discoveries of the past century as well as the personal stories of each individual.”
There is a new article in the Journal of eScience Librarianship.
“Building an eScience Thesaurus for Librarians: A Collaboration Between the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, New England Region and an Associate Fellow at the National Library of Medicine”
Conclusion: The eScience Thesaurus is an evolving resource; as the field expands and more eScience-related terms are adopted by the library and information science community, the Portal will enable its users to electronically submit new vocabulary and records to the Thesuarus, thus preserving it as a go-to eScience resource for librarians.
#SLAtalk and #UKlibchat are pleased to co-present a Twitter conversation like no other!
