The Library of Congress has awarded a major contract to further develop and implement a new, open-source IT platform that will revolutionize how the Library’s vast physical and digital collections are managed and made accessible for the public, Congress, Library employees, and other institutions.

The new Library Collections Access Platform software application will serve as the heart of the Library’s collections management operations, connecting several stand-alone IT systems into a one-stop shop for the acquisition, description, inventory, and discovery of Library collections.[…]

What is lost when academics teach to empty lecture halls?

Higher education needs to ‘find the right balance’ between online and in-person learning, says Sydney professor, after confronting empty lecture hall for the second time.

When veterinary parasitologist Jan Slapeta gave his first regular lecture at the University of Sydney 15 years ago, he found the experience “intimidating”.

Designing interactive learning environments has become even more imperative now that the pandemic’s effects on higher education are likely to continue for many months. The Chronicle of Higher Education lists more than 1,100 U.S. institutions that require students to be fully vaccinated before returning to campus, but many others in the U.S., have no such requirement. In the U.K., universities are encouraging but not mandating vaccines for their students and staff.[…]
