What is non-consumptive data and what can you do with it? Recording

NISO Plus 2023 was a virtual global event which happened around the world on February 14-16, 2023. Building on our track record of engagement and conversation, we brought the same quality of content from 2020-2022 to our 2023 gathering. Dozens of amazing speakers and keynotes from across the globe share their knowledge and expertise on important topics for the information community.
Books, journal articles, blog posts, tweets, and more were written to be read by humans– a “consumptive” use. Turning those books, journal articles, blog posts, and tweets into features that allow for computational analysis without needing to share full-text (which may not be allowed under copyright or licensing restrictions) creates “non-consumptive” data. These extracted features can be as simple as word counts, or as complex as multidimensional vectors used by deep learning models. New learners of text analysis need data formats and feature types that are easy to use and understand, but advanced practitioners also need rich metadata describing the structure and provenance of multiple kinds of extracted features. Non-consumptive formats also need to accommodate the often-intensive storage, compute, and transmission demands of text corpora ranging from thousands to millions of documents. In this session, we’ll describe different features currently provided by ITHAKA’s Constellate platform and HathiTrust Research Center, some of the formats in which non-consumptive data is delivered to researchers, current challenges for both the producers of this data and the practitioners who consume it, and open the floor for a discussion on future standards for non-consumptive data.

You’ve got your team together now, but how do you know what to do? Product Management is all about understanding needs and solving problems - for your users, your customers and your organization? How do you understand those needs? How do you determine priorities? This program segment will provide clarity and help you to focus on your discovery process.
It’s a muddled area for libraries, content providers and readers. Long-form content has traditionally been contained in printed volumes both for reasons of consumption as well as convenient access. With the arrival of ebooks, some aspects of engaging with long-form content became a bit easier – searchability, mobility, etc. Still, neither form seems to fully satisfy. Each user learns his or her own best practices for reading and referencing book content. Is it any wonder then that those whose scholarship relies on long-form content are suspicious of proposed changes to book production, delivery and access? This virtual conference will consider from a variety of perspectives issues associated with creation, publication, and distribution of The Book. Speakers may explore metrics of usage (downloads, duration of reading session, etc.) as well as questions of reader behavior, assignment of metadata, and long-term access to licensed digital content.
Have 3D printers become commonplace? Is someone in your library using pizza boxes to create their next-generation VR viewer? Perhaps you’re wondering just how sophisticated (and how spacious) a Maker Space needs to be these days. What are the expectations from students and faculty? What tools and services need to be part of a library’s maker space?
