THE SYSTEMS LIBRARIAN - Library Technology Forecast for 2015 and Beyond THE SYSTEMS LIBRARIAN Library Technology Forecast for 2015 and Beyond by Marshall Breeding With another year winding down, we’re pausing to review some of the accomplishments with technology in libraries and consider what might be in store. Each year seems to bring an accelerating pace of change. Relentless Consolidation In 2014, the library-technology industry saw another phase of consolidation. One component of the change relates to the increased involvement of private equity firms as they gain ownership of companies from the individuals or families that originally founded them. Through these previous rounds of consolidation, the strategic products and technologies used by libraries remain under the control of fewer companies of larger size and capacity. Looking into the next year or two, I anticipate that the consolidation of the industry will continue. However, it is inevitable that the industry will be dominated by a shrinking tier of very large corporations. Mobile

Paul Jorion, Principes des systèmes intelligents La première édition (chez Masson) date de 1990. Cf. par exemple la récente étude de Katsushi Miura et col. (« Vowel Acquisition based on an Auto-Mirroring Bias with a Less Imitative Caregiver », Advanced Robotics, vol. 26, n° 1-2, pp. 23-44, 2012) interrogeant les capacités phonétiques auto-organisatrices d’un système apprenant de nouvelles voyelles. Ajoutons que Jorion n’était pas le seul avoir tenté des rapprochements entre Intelligence Artificielle et psychanalyse : cf. par exemple Sherry Turkle, « Artificial Intelligence and Psychoanalysis: A New Alliance », Daedalus Journal of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, vol. 117, n° 1 : « Artificial Intelligence », 1988. Cf. la chronique de Didier Pourquery sur l’expression « Ou pas… », Le Monde, 2 mars 2013, p. 24. On se souvient que la question voisine de l’hétérogénéité des mathématiques au substrat cérébral avait été discutée par Jean-Pierre Changeux et Alain Connes (Matière à pensée, Paris, Odile Jacob, 2008).

La BNF va numériser 500 000 livres épuisés L’accord a été dévoilé cette semaine. Il associe le ministère de la Culture, la Bibliothèque nationale de France (BNF), le Syndicat national de l'édition et la Société des gens de lettres. Il prévoit la numérisation sur cinq ans, et par la BNF, de 500 000 livres épuisés du XXème siècle - mais toujours sous droits. Le financement du projet de numérisation s’effectuera grâce aux fonds alloués (750 millions d’euros) dans le cadre du grand emprunt. Les ouvrages épuisés numérisés seront conservés par la BNF. Des modalités financières et économiques toujours à définir Mais pour se procurer le livre électronique dans son intégralité, l’internaute sera redirigé vers des sites marchands. Les e-books « seront exploités dans le cadre d'une gestion collective assurant aux éditeurs et aux auteurs, représentés à parité, une rémunération équitable dans le strict respect des droits moraux et patrimoniaux » précise le ministère de la Culture dans un communiqué.

100 Search Engines For Academic Research Back in 2010, we shared with you 100 awesome search engines and research resources in our post: 100 Time-Saving Search Engines for Serious Scholars. It’s been an incredible resource, but now, it’s time for an update. Some services have moved on, others have been created, and we’ve found some new discoveries, too. Many of our original 100 are still going strong, but we’ve updated where necessary and added some of our new favorites, too.
