Access to CAMIO database to end December 2018

OCLC will discontinue access to the CAMIO (Catalog of Art Museum Images Online) database for WorldCat Local and FirstSearch/WorldCat Discovery subscribers on 31 December 2018. The expansion of online access to this type of content in recent years has increased researchers’ access to images in art museums, replacing the need for a discrete database such as CAMIO.

Access to CAMIO through a custom interface has been included in FirstSearch and FirstSearch/WorldCat Discovery subscriptions for several years. CAMIO access has also been configurable in OCLC Service Configuration for searching from WorldCat Local and WorldCat Discovery.

 When CAMIO access ends, metadata for materials in CAMIO will be removed from the WorldCat database and will no longer be searchable via the OCLC services, WorldCat Discovery, or WorldCat Local.  However, some images may continue to be discoverable in WorldCat if their metadata has been added to the database via CONTENTdm or the WorldCat Digital Collection Gateway.

When CAMIO access is removed, the database name will no longer display to users in the WorldCat Local or WorldCat Discovery interfaces.

Digital humanities: Text mining using Gale Digital Scholar Lab

The University Library has acquired digital archives from Gale Cengage, a publisher of large primary source materials, including historical documents and newspapers.   These digital archives are now available within a new resource called the “Gale Digital Scholar Lab” which has been specifically designed for the purpose of enabling text-mining and analysis.

Using the Lab you can search the archives as you would on their native platforms and build content sets from these search results.   You can make multiple content sets and analyse the corpus that you amass using the tools provided in the Lab.  The tools available in the Lab now are all Open Source (and it is the ambition of the publisher that these will be expanded on over time): Topic Modelling (Mallet); Frequencies (Lucene); Clustering (SciKit Learn); Parts-of-Speech Tagger (spaCy); Sentiment Analysis (OpenNLP); Named Entity Recognition (spaCy); Ngrams (Lucene).

The Lab promises to open up new possibilities for the relative newcomer to digital scholarship in this area, allowing natural language processing tools to be applied to raw text data (OCR), facilitating new discoveries and insights.  The Lab makes much of visualization of results and data and thus lends itself to scholarly sharing and “bridging the gap between scholarly resources and faculty researchers/students”. The Lab facilitates organisation of content sets, including renaming, duplicating and versioning as well as identifying the searches used to create the content set, which makes sharing and reproducing research projects easier than is usually the case.   Archives included in the Lab to which Cambridge has access for analysis are:

17th and 18th century Burney collection

19th century UK periodicals

British Library newspapers

Economist historical archive, 1843-2014

Eighteenth century collections online

Illustrated London News historical archive, 1842-2003

Making of modern law: legal treatises, 1800-1926

Nineteenth century U.S. newspapers

Times digital archive

Times literary supplement historical archive

U.S. declassified documents online


The access to the Lab is on a trial basis to help Cambridge assess its usefulness to the practitioner and to encourage and promote the resource to digital humanities scholarship in Cambridge generally.   Access is available now from the details below, up to 31 December 2018.

Please contact to obtain the username and password.   The username and password will be supplied to the enquirer by return email.

 When you first login you will be requested to create a user account using your Google account or your Microsoft account.  We recommend that you use the Microsoft account option which connects through to your institutional account via the University of Cambridge login page.

Due to the nature of the access as trial only, restrictions are in place around export of documents.

Feedback on the trial is welcomed.  You may prefer to ask that it is sent to your library’s email address or you can use the in any communication you do and we will collect what we receive for onward sharing in 2019.

Journal of Professional Capital and Community

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Journal of Professional Capital and Community

From the Emerald website for the journal:

The Journal of Professional Capital and Community is an international, professionally refereed, scholarly journal, reflecting the most important ideas and evidence of the nature and impact of interactions and relationships in the education profession, especially in the school sector.

“For the first time, in one single place of scholarly research and inquiry, this journal brings together the most influential leading thinkers and emerging scholars on professional cultures, communities and collegiality and how they all contribute to or impede the development of the professional capital in schools and school systems that enhances students’ learning, wellbeing, achievement and engagement.

“The journal raises and addresses issues like individualism and collaboration in teaching, the processes involved in building professional cultures and communities, leadership and team building, coaching and mentoring, collective responsibility and evidence-based transparency. The journal addresses how collaboration evolves over time, how it can become sustainable, what its impact can be on quality of teaching and student outcomes, how it produces and also depends on dynamics of risk and trust, and what relationships it has to other aspects of educational reform and improvement such as school competition, assessment and accountability and curriculum standards.

“The Journal of Professional Capital and Community looks at how professional culture and community and the ways to invest in and build professional capital vary across continents, countries and cultures. The journal identifies the positive aspects of professional interactions and relationships but also raises critical questions about how professional culture can be manipulated, how professional collaboration can be restricted and misused, and how collegiality can become constrained or contrived.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2016) to present.
