Automatic Keywording of High Energy Physics

David Dallman & Jean-Yves Le Meur
Bibliographic databases were developed from the traditional library card catalogue in order to enable users to access library documents via various types of bibliographic information, such as title, author, series or conference date. In addition these catalogues sometimes contained some form of indexation by subject, such as the Universal (or Dewey) Decimal Classification used for books. With the introduction of the eprint archives, set up by the High Energy Physics (HEP) Community in the early...

CERN Document Server: Document Management System for Grey Literature in Networked Environment

Martin Vesely & Tibor Šimko
Co-authored together with Baron T., Le Meur J., & Simko T. / In this paper we present a technology for networked information services, developed at the CERN Document Server (CDS) research group, called the CERN Document Server Software (CDSware). Standardization of networked information services in the field of grey literature has recently become a subject of an intensive research in the digital library community. The current state-ofthe-art in this area effectively allows to provide various...

How do High-Energy Physics scholars discover scientific information?

Anne Gentil-Beccot
Grey literature has always been the main conduit of scholarly communication for High-Energy Physics (HEP) researchers. An efficient way of searching and accessing this information is a central part of their research workflow. In 2007, a survey was conducted to understand which information resources HEP scholars use to find the information they need. The results of this survey are presented. Over 2000 answers, representing about one-tenth of the active HEP community, were collected and show...

Link Managers for Grey Literature

Elena Lodi, Jens Vigen & Martin Vesely
In the self-service area of the library reading rooms it is necessary to organise the collections in the simplest way possible. This is an important feature for readers making it possible to get direct access to the material without necessarily having to go via the library catalogue to retrieve the call number. A typical example will be that a collection is organised so that a reader can easily get directly from an article reference to...

DOI Registrations for Software

Martin Fenner, Daniel S. Katz, Lars Holm Nielsen & Arfon Smith
We know that software is important in research, and some of us in the scholarly communications community, for example, in FORCE11, have been pushing the concept of software citation as a method to allow software developers and maintainers to get academic...

Invenio: A Modern Digital Library System for Grey Literature

Jérôme Caffaro & Samuele Kaplun
Grey literature has historically played a key role for researchers in the field of High-Energy Physics (HEP). Consequently CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) as the world's largest particle physics laboratory has always been facing the challenge of distributing and archiving grey material. Invenio, an open-source repository software, has been developed as part of CERN's institutional repository strategy to answer these needs. In this document we describe how the particular context of grey literature within...

50 Years of Experience in Making Grey Literature Available: Matching the Expectations of the Particle Physics Community

Carmen O’Dell & Jens Vigen
Co-authored together with Dallman D., Vesely M., and Vigen J. / The CERN Scientific Information Service has been active in the field of digital library research and in providing scientific information services to the high-energy physics community for almost five decades now. Most recently the research focus has been on interoperability issues in document storage and retrieval systems, metadata added-value services, digital library automation and networked information services. The achievements of this research and the...
