    web sites The Open Folklore Project serves as a new model for collection development and scholarly communication for building discipline based digital collections Besides providing open access to research materials the portal offers full text searching and allows folklore scholars and enthusiasts to identify and select reliable scholarly content differentiating it from popular and sometimes unreliable online search engine content This project actively works to encourage partnerships to collaboratively digitize materials place them in open access digital repositories and share them with the folklore community The Open Folklore Project can proudly serve as a model for collaborative projects in other scholarly disciplines AFS and IU Libraries are thrilled that the library community so generously and enthusiastically recognized early the goals and partnership strategies underpinning the OF effort The AFS Ethnographic Thesaurus ET The AFS Ethnographic Thesaurus AFSET is now out of its beta testing phase and is fully operational and usable as a controlled vocabulary tool for folklore studies and related ethnographic disciplines The AFSET is live and accessible from a dedicated tab at the OF portal site Now that it is available as a stable resource the AFSET will also begin to figure more prominently in the publishing and database work of various projects affiliated with Open Folklore including IUScholarWorks and The Journal of American Folklore the flagship journal of the AFS Tutorial resources to help scholars and project teams in their utilization of the AFSET will be developed in the year ahead Work on the AFS Ethnographic Thesaurus was supported by a generous grant from the Scholarly Communications Program of the Andrew W Mellon Foundation and early planning grant funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities The AFS developed the Thesaurus in cooperation with the American Folklife Center of the Library of Congress and its incorporation into the OF portal was made possible through the combined efforts of the AFSET development team and the IU Digital Library Program Thanks go to all who supported the project on its journey to official release New Scholarly Content from AFS and IUScholarWorks Repository Over the past six months a large body of new scholarly content has been incorporated into the Open Folklore universe Most prominent in this additional scholarly material are publications issued over many decades by the AFS Much new AFS material has been included in the IUScholarWorks Repository as part of the repository s AFS community A key addition to the AFS community in IUScholarWorks Repository is a large corpus of syllabi developed for folklore and folklife courses at all levels by AFS members This is a collection that will continue to grow in the years ahead The Folklore Teaching Resources Collection presently includes 55 contributions from a diversity of folklore scholars These resources are fully discoverable via Open Folklore Search They are also browsable in IUScholarWorks Repository A remarkable addition to the group of AFS materials being made available through the IUScholarWorks Repository are a nearly complete set of documents chronicling the Society s annual meetings going back to 1889 For recent years these are the printed meeting programs but for the early years rich narrative accounts of the meetings that were originally published in The Journal of American Folklore are now freely available These meetings related materials priceless resources for both the history of the field and for the pursuit of current research are fully discoverable via Open Folklore Search They are also browsable in IUScholarWorks Repository A few small gaps in the continuous record remain and the OF team is now working toward providing access to annual meeting program books for those missing from the 1950s and for the 1975 2003 period Among the other new AFS content additions are the backfiles of a key journal Children s Folklore Review 1990 2006 and its predecessor the Children s Folklore Newsletter 1979 1990 This content is now fully accessible in IUScholarWorks Repository and searchable at the issue level via Open Folklore Search Continued progress is being made toward the goal of making the back files of all of the AFS s section journals freely available online either as part of the IUScholarWorks Repository or the HathiTrust Digital Library New Scholarly Content Available via Google Books Some folklore journal titles including others among the corpus of AFS section publications that are available within the HathiTrust Digital Library are now also available via Google Books The content newly accessible via Google Books includes Keystone Folklore Jewish Folklore and Ethnology Review Folklore Historian and some issues of Digest Finding aids to assist users in accessing these journals within Google Books will be made available in IUScholarWorks and the Open Folklore Portal

Cataloger Michael Taft Head of the Archive Recent Conference Presentations on Open Folklore Posted on Fri 07 15 2011 1 43pm Open Folklore Communications Lead and IU Digital Publishing Librarian Jennifer Laherty has taken a lead this summer presenting on the Open Folklore project to eager audiences at two national conferences In a presentation titled Open Folklore A Model Collaboration that she developed with fellow OF team member Garett Montanez Jennifer discussed the OF project with an audience at the 2011 Open Repositories Conference in Austin Texas Here are excerpts from their abstract The Open Folklore OF project exemplifies inter institutional cooperation to maximize the strengths of digital repositories and leverage the building blocks of staff shared mission and goals and technology to support a new model of collaboration Kim Fortun 2011 has offered her praise for OF Open Folklore has built new social relations that can undergird and protect scholarly work and education for many years to come Most fundamentally Open Folklore has forged new connections between scholars a scholarly society and university librarians We add to this our technical partners as well A variety of social and technical symbiotic relationships exist within the Open Folklore project This cross institutional effort takes advantage of digital repositories while leveraging the building blocks of staff shared mission and goals and technology This presentation will demonstrate each community s contribution and benefits from the project We will also illustrate how the two technical foundations central to OF s effectiveness and success metadata and digital repositories operate within OF Finally we will discuss plans to incorporate additional pieces such as the AFS Ethnographic Thesaurus a searchable online controlled vocabulary which would make OF Search more effective at providing access to information At the American Library Association meeting last month Jennifer presented on the Role of Humanities and Social Science Liaison Librarians in Scholarly Communication and Publishing This presentation was part of the panel 21st Century Scholarly Communication Conversations for Change The abstract for this session noted As the Open Access movement ramps up in the humanities and social sciences librarians need to be aware of the initiatives that are altering traditional scholarly publishing Open access journals monographs presses and more are changing librarians roles and the scholarly communication landscape This panel will discuss the progress and impact of this important reform movement from the perspective of feminist librarians and other stakeholders This panel was organized by the Women and Gender Studies Section of the Association of College and Research Libraries In her remarks Jennifer focused on examples from the humanities and social sciences work that she does with the IUScholarWorks team at IU Open Folklore was one of the projects that she used to explain how important scholarly society association involvement is in these very faculty centric issues She expressed that faculty though they belong to institutional departments and must comply with local promotion and tenure policies have allegiances that are likely to be stronger to colleagues in their narrower research fields as opposed to those colleagues in their home department In the fall other members of the OF project team will be speaking about the project at a number of different professional conferences Stay tuned for more information on these presentations Thanks to Jennifer for her efforts spreading the word about the OF effort New Friend of Open Folklore The Journal of Ethnology and Folkloristics is Now Part of OF
