  ASIST2008: Final Sessions
This last bit of sessions was disappointing - in each session, some of the presenters didn't show up. I started in From open source to open libraries, but I had heard all but the first speaker speak - and I was looking forward to that presentation:

Knowledge Sharing and Management in Open Access e-Resources & Communities (KM, DL)

Thomas Krichel, LIU and RePeC
(slides at: http://openlib.org/home/krichel/presentations/columbus_2008-10-29.ppt)

archives with articles in one location but services can be widely used. RePEC is based on 900+ archives. 630k item dataset
… talking at the speed of light no way I can do notes…

some measures of users of services
some measures of derobitified web impact through LogEc

author registration success as a measure of community impact
- matched registry and an independent list of top 1000 economists and 79% registered (some of these 1000 are dead, so never get to 100%)
- impact on fee
1) always have been free working papers
2) publication delay is 2-3 years if not 10 by going down journal ladder so useless for state of art

impact a lot
- more efficient for working paper
- preserved working paper culture
- better citation/use for working papers
- preservation for working papers

remaining nuisance – libraries, we’re supporting the toll based ,so as long as we do , they will continue to exist

keys to success
- need an extraordinary individual who can do a tremendous amount of work on “surplus” time
- small group of volunteers
- own server
- disseminate as widely as possible


[ditched that session and headed to the geographical information session - but only 2 out of 5 presenters showed, and I missed all but the last few words of Dr Buckland's, apparently to do with some aspect of http://ecai.org/ ...]

Hit just the very end of Buckland (Berkeley)
Finding and Providing Context Online
internet allows you to search ineffectively in multiple different vocabularies

[ditched next speaker because I think he decided that the way to fill 45 minutes with a 10 minute talk was to spend 5 minutes on each very obvious bullet point]

Ended up in something *completely* different: Waddling around the Digital Iceberg: Use of Virtual Spaces and Environments by children, preteens, and teens.

Apparently there were only 2 speakers of all of the speakers? BUT I got to hear all of Eric Meyers (the guy from UW not the one from OII) and all about club penguin and learning... really fit well with the second plenary, which I didn't blog but was fabulous. So it ended on a good note.
