      Kenning Arlitsch Dean of the Library Montana State University Patrick OBrien Semantic Web Research Director Montana State University Martha Kyrillidou Senior Director Statistics and Service Quality Programs Association of Research Libraries Ricky Erway Senior Program Officer OCLC Research As part of their assessment and evaluation activities, libraries routinely report website and digital collections visits to their own institutions, professional organizations, and funding agencies. Publication downloads from institutional repositories are often included in this reporting as a way of demonstrating their value. Initial research by a team from Montana State University, OCLC Research and the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) has demonstrated that reporting in all these areas can be grossly inaccurate, leading to a variance in numbers across the profession that makes it difficult to draw conclusions, build business cases, or engender trust. The inaccuracy runs in both directions with under-reporting of visits and downloads as much a problem as over-reporting. This presentation will build the case for the developing research and will suggest some preliminary solutions for improving the accuracy of Web analytics reporting. http://www.cni.org/topics/assessment/f13-arlitsch-accuracy/ Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) Fall 2013 Membership Meeting December 9-10, 2013 Washington, DC http://www.cni.org/mm/fall-2013/

            A Conversation on the Changing Landscape of Information Systems in Higher Education: Community Source, Community Platforms and Systems as Services Tom Cramer Chief Technology Strategist, Stanford University James Hilton Dean of Libraries & Vice Provost for Digital Educational Initiatives, University of Michigan Michele Kimpton Chief Executive Officer, DuraSpace, Inc. Clifford Lynch Executive Director, Coalition for Networked Information Opening Plenary Session http://www.cni.org/events/membership-meetings/past-meetings/fall-2014/plenary-sessions/ For the last decade the higher education and research world has invested heavily in community source development efforts to develop alternatives to large-scale commercial software, and, in some cases, to create new kinds of software in advance of the emergence of a commercial marketplace. Recently, we have seen substantial changes in the framework for one major, well-established community source development program to introduce a for-profit component; the launch of several new projects that are primarily focused on the development of community platforms based in the cloud; and a growing number of institutions investigating strategies that move existing in-house applications to software as a service offerings. This is an enormously complex, dynamic, and difficult to understand environment both for developing new institutional strategies and for launching new community collaborations for innovation. This is a conversation in which three long-time leaders, both in the world of community source and also in the broader enterprise of organizing and advancing inter-organizational collaborations to advance technology in support of higher education, explore these developments and where they may be taking us in the near and longer terms. Discussion focuses on the landscape broadly, using individual systems and projects mainly as illustrations, and the idea is to understand issues like the diversity, stability and resilience of the emerging landscape, the changing loci of innovation and expertise, the shifting role of standards, and the implications of shifts in the rate of innovation and deployment of innovation.

              Closing Plenary Session: 2014 in Review and 2015 in Prospect This plenary presentation (which usually opens the conference, but this time instead closes it, allowing me to build on the opening plenary conversation) will look at key developments that the Coalition has been tracking over the past year, highlight some specific emerging developments that we believe to be of particular importance, and summarize CNI’s 2014-2015 Program Plan (http://www.cni.org/program/2014-2015/).

Mellon Foundation to study the feasibility of establishing Centers of Excellence (CoEs). This study recognizes CoEs as a means to provide new information services that libraries are increasingly expected to deliver in order to meet the needs of twenty-first century research, teaching, and learning. A team of seven librarians from Association of Research Libraries (ARL) libraries interviewed directors of 19 CoEs and staff from seven funding organizations. The study explored the characteristics of CoEs, what makes them successful, and the challenges commonly faced by centers. Criteria were identified for forming, evaluating, and sustaining a Center of Excellence. This video includes presentation of study findings and preliminary recommendations for following a Centers of Excellence model in developing and delivering information services. The results are intended to be useful to funders who have an interest in funding centers, as well as to institutions interested in forming a center, and staff of existing centers who seek new funding.
