Data Sharing and Management Snafu in 3 Short Acts. NYU Health Sciences Library
TUHH is starting plan to set up its own institutional repository for research data. A topic that will accompany us – alongside all technology and workflows – is to make all data FAIR – Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable.
FAIR Data Principles
One of the grand challenges of data-intensive science is to facilitate knowledge discovery by assisting humans and machines in their discovery of, access to, integration and analysis of, task-appropriate scientific data and their associated algorithms and workflows. A FAIR Data Publishing Group of FORCE11 has been discussing FAIR – a set of guiding principles to make data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable.
To be Findable:
F1. (meta)data are assigned a globally unique and eternally persistent identifier.
F2. data are described with rich metadata.
F3. (meta)data are registered or indexed in a searchable resource.
F4. metadata specify the data identifier.
To be Accessible:
A1 (meta)data are retrievable by their identifier using a standardized communications protocol.
A1.1 the protocol is open, free, and universally implementable.
A1.2 the protocol allows for an authentication and authorization procedure, where necessary.
A2 metadata are accessible, even when the data are no longer available.
To be Interoperable:
I1. (meta)data use a formal, accessible, shared, and broadly applicable language for knowledge representation.
I2. (meta)data use vocabularies that follow FAIR principles.
I3. (meta)data include qualified references to other (meta)data.
To be Re-usable:
R1. meta(data) have a plurality of accurate and relevant attributes.
R1.1. (meta)data are released with a clear and accessible data usage license.
R1.2. (meta)data are associated with their provenance.
R1.3. (meta)data meet domain-relevant community standards.
In the last years the TUHH library has bought individual e-books from the publisher De Gruyter from time to time. In 2017 the complete e-book program from De Gruyter is available within TUHH intranet. At the end of the year the tub. will decide, also depending on usage, which small selection of titles will be included in its holdings permanently.
As long-established publisher the schedule of books by De Gruyter includes all subjects. Here you find a selection of titles interesting within TUHH:
Field of mathematics
Field of engineering
Field of industrial chemistry (process engineering)
Overview industrial chemistry (process engineering)
Outlook on 2018
Because the publisher De Gruyter sells above mentioned textbooks quite expensively, it cannot be guaranteed, that all above mentioned titles will be availalable within TUHH permanently.
Please pay special attention to our BookCrossing shelf at the entrance area of the library.
This subject week we would like to send books into different languages on travelling. Maybe an interesting book is present for you?
Donations are still welcome. Thank you very much.
On Wednesday 18-01-17 the University library will not open before 10:00 am because of maintenance works concerning power supply.
We hope for your understanding.
Due to maintenance work on central technical facilities in numerous buildings of the TUHH campus the university library will be closed on Saturday, 07-01-2017.
The computer network will be not available in the library building from Friday, 06-01-2017, 6:00pm to Sunday 08-01-2017, 6.00pm.
On Sunday, 08-01-2017, the library will be open again from 10:00am – 8:00pm.
Thank you for your understanding!
Again many hands from the TUHH have tackled to support Milli Antolagic when baking cookies and producing truffles as well as homemade jam. As in previous years, they will sell all this delicacies for the benefit of the children’s hospice Sternenbrücke on Wednesday, 11/30/2016, from 9:00am in the library.
Early come ensures a successful shopping!
We ask for your understanding if on Wednesday around the library entrance it will get a bit more noisy!
Many books are available electronically. This is indicated by the button ” Volltext @ TUHH “. The link on this button leads to the download offer of the appropriate publisher. The content can be downloaded as a PDF as a whole book ( partly as EPUB for ebook readers ) or article wise, depending on the specifications of the publisher. For licensing reasons this is only possible from the intranet of TUHH. On computers with internet – login registered readers save their ebooks either on a USB stick or any cloud or even send it via email. Therefore there are no loan periods. As a student at the TUHH you can download the ebooks on your own PC – however, a VPN connection has to be maintained.
Most publishers offer an access via “Shibboleth” (without VPN) too. Klick here for further information of TUHH intranet and use of e-media!
You can borrow books at the circulation desk (journals may not be borrowed!), but also in self-service at the yellow selfcheck-system. Check out and check in of media on the machine are possible throughout the opening hours to 9pm and also at weekends, including Sundays and public holidays till 8pm!
Simply put on books (also in batch), barcode of the library card has to be read, authenticate with a password – tap on button “borrow” and close account – done!
On the selfcheck- systems (near elevator) both check out and check in of media are possible. Check in also works without library card and authentication.
If no other client has reserved the media, you can extend the loan periods up to three times in your library account online.
Attention: please note loan period! When it is exceeded, fees will arise.
The first time you visite our library you will surely notice this shelf in the entrance area. Our shelf for first-semester offers a selection of books, especially for those who start studying – from the textbook to the collection of formulas. Further copies of these books can be found in the textbook collection.
And also: if these books from the shelf for first-semester are available electronically, the QR-code on the reference panels contains the corresponding link. So: please access to the intranet and then scan the QR-code.
Please search for your studies in our shelf for first-semester, welcome!
