In the years since the launch of the World Wide Web in 1993, there have been profoundly transformative changes to the entire concept of publishing—exceeding all the previous combined technical advances of the centuries following the introduction of movable type in medieval Asia around the year 1000 1 and the subsequent large-scale commercialization of printing several centuries later by J. Gutenberg (circa 1440). Periodicals in print—from daily newspapers to scholarly journals—are now quickly…

Discovering emerging topics in textual corpora of galleries, libraries, archives, and museums institutions
A straightforward computational procedure to identify emerging topics in periodical materials such as newspapers, bibliographies, and journals is explored and expected to promote further usage by researchers of the digital collections.
Sustaining Software Preservation Efforts Through Use and Communities of Practice
Two approaches to sustaining software preservation efforts via community are presented: emphasizing within the community of practice the importance of “preservation through use,” that is, preserving software heritage by staying familiar with how it feels, looks, and works, and the second approach to convene direct and adjacent expertise to facilitate knowledge exchange across domain barriers.
Reusing digital collections from GLAM institutions
A methodology to create machine actionable collections following a set of steps is proposed and applied to several use cases based on data sets published by relevant GLAM institutions to encourage institutions to adopt the publication of data sets that support computationally driven research as a core activity.


Open-access index delists thousands of journals
Many publications did not reapply after leading directory tightened its quality criteria.
