ItemAIMS Philanthropy Project: Studying AI, Machine Learning & Data Science Technology for Good(Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy and Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing, IUPUI, Indianapolis, IN., 2021-02-07) Herzog, Patricia Snell; Naik, Harshal R.; Khan, Haseeb A.This project investigates philanthropic activities related to Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Data Science technology (AIMS). Advances in AIMS technology are impacting the field of philanthropy in substantial ways. This report focuses on methods employed in analyzing and visualizing five data sources: Open Philanthropy grants database, Rockefeller Foundation grants database, Chronicle of Philanthropy article database, GuideStar Nonprofit Database, and Google AI for Social Good grant awardees. The goal was to develop an accessible website platform that engaged human-centered UX user experience design techniques to present information about AIMS Philanthropy (https://www.aims-phil.org/). Each dataset was analyzed for a set of general questions that could be answered visually. The visuals aim to provide answers to these two primary questions: (1) How much funding was invested in AIMS? and (2) What focus areas, applications, discovery, or other purposes was AIMS-funded directed toward? Cumulatively, this project identified 325 unique organizations with a total of $2.6 billion in funding for AIMS philanthropy. ItemBob White: Open Access and the Center for Digital Scholarship(2015-09-17) White, Robert W.; Polley, David E.; Center for Digital Scholarship ItemCapturing the Benefits of Open Access in Interlibrary Loan(2015-11-06) Baich, TinaThough many think primarily of journal articles when discussing open access (OA), there are other document types that can fall under the basic definition of OA such as electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs), conference papers, and reports. Sources of these OA materials abound – institutional repositories, subject repositories, OA journals, organization websites – the list goes on and on. While the sheer number of sources may seem overwhelming, locating OA materials to fill requests provides real benefits to interlibrary loan (ILL) departments. OA allows the fulfillment of requests for materials traditionally difficult to obtain; fills requests quickly without external intervention; and eliminates the cost of borrowing. In order to capture these benefits, ILL practitioners must prioritize their options and streamline the OA workflow. This paper will provide recommendations on how to develop a customized OA workflow that best fits your ILL department.

ItemCapturing the Benefits of Open Access in Interlibrary Loan: A Workshop(2016-10-11) Baich, TinaTopics covered include (1) Introduction to open access; (2) How open access can help ILL; (3) Locating open access resources; and (4) Creating an open access workflow. ItemConnor Norwood: Open Access and the Center for Digital Scholarship(2015-10-19) Norwood, Connor; Coates, Heather L.; Center for Digital Scholarship ItemCopyright Provisions in Law Journal Publication Agreements(2010) Keele, Benjamin J.Mr. Keele examined copyright provisions of law journal publication agreements and found that a minority of journals ask authors to transfer copyright. Most journals also permit authors to self-archive articles. He recommends journals make their agreements publicly available and use licenses instead of copyright transfers. ItemDiminishing the perceived need for black open access(2017-10-04) Baich, TinaThe attention garnered by unauthorized sharing and pirating of scholarly content has resulted in a new category on the open access spectrum – black open access. Though black open access attempts to solve the discovery problem inherent in the multitude of open access content sources, it does so in violation of copyright law. Tools have now been developed to combat this same problem legally, including the Open Access Button and Unpaywall. Librarians can engage in several strategies to help diminish the need for black open access, including the promotion of these discovery tools through education and services. We can share the tools with our users and teach them why they should not engage in unauthorized sharing. We can use the tools to fulfill requests and capture the benefits of open access in interlibrary loan. There are also more general strategies related to infrastructure, policy, and education that are important to acknowledge. Librarians can and must move the open access conversation forward in a positive, and legal, direction. This paper provides an overview of the black open access landscape, discusses the discovery tools for uncovering legal open access content, and highlights how librarians can improve systems, services, and education efforts related to open access and open access discovery tools. ItemEffect of Advanced Access Scheduling on Processes and Intermediate Outcomes of Diabetes Care and Utilization(2009-03) Subramanian, Usha; Ackermann, Ronald T.; Brizendine, Edward J.; Saha, Chandan; Rosenman, Marc B.; Willis, Deanna R.; Marrero, David G.BACKGROUND The impact of open access (OA) scheduling on chronic disease care and outcomes has not been studied. OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of OA implementation at 1 year on: (1) diabetes care processes (testing for A1c, LDL, and urine microalbumin), (2) intermediate outcomes of diabetes care (SBP, A1c, and LDL level), and (3) health-care utilization (ED visits, hospitalization, and outpatient visits). METHODS We used a retrospective cohort study design to compare process and outcomes for 4,060 continuously enrolled adult patients with diabetes from six OA clinics and six control clinics. Using a generalized linear model framework, data were modeled with linear regression for continuous, logistic regression for dichotomous, and Poisson regression for utilization outcomes. RESULTS Patients in the OA clinics were older, with a higher percentage being African American (51% vs 34%) and on insulin. In multivariate analyses, for A1c testing, the odds ratio for African-American patients in OA clinics was 0.47 (CI: 0.29-0.77), compared to non-African Americans [OR 0.27 (CI: 0.21-0.36)]. For urine microablumin, the odds ratio for non-African Americans in OA clinics was 0.37 (CI: 0.17-0.81). At 1 year, in adjusted analyses, patients in OA clinics had significantly higher SBP (mean 6.4 mmHg, 95% CI 5.4 – 7.5). There were no differences by clinic type in any of the three health-care utilization outcomes. CONCLUSION OA scheduling was associated with worse processes of care and SBP at 1 year. OA clinic scheduling should be examined more critically in larger systems of care, multiple health-care settings, and/or in a randomized controlled trial. ItemEngineering a Powerfully Simple Interlibrary Loan Experience with InstantILL(2019-10-11) Paxton, Mike; Maixner, Gary; McArthur, Joseph; Baich, TinaIUPUI University Library (UL) has long recognized the need to advance open access and the crucial role resource sharing services play in bridging between the subscription-based world and an Open world. Resource sharing professionals frequently use library services to search for and retrieve known items, and thus have a key role not only in the provision of services but in demanding better discovery systems, promoting new and better discovery and delivery tools, and educating users. As services such as Primo, EDS, and Google Scholar combine with library website design to promote central indexes, it is increasingly unrealistic to expect the average user to search multiple unpromoted channels for what they need, and so libraries must work to make all aspects of discovery and delivery similarly straightforward. Resource sharing professionals can make significant inroads in improving discovery and delivery of open access and subscription content by partnering with Open projects to improve the library user’s experience when searching for known content. This paper will share how UL has taken a concrete step in this direction by working with the Open Access Button to develop InstantILL, a simple, community-owned, search tool for students and researchers to get free, fast, and legal access to articles. With a simple interface that users expect, InstantILL integrates searching library holdings, searching open access materials, and submitting interlibrary loan requests into a single action. Attendees will learn why the library chose to pursue this project, what InstantILL is and how it was designed and developed, and the results of the implementation.
