Remembering Dan Krummes

Dan Krummes, founding member of this committee - and a dear friend and colleague - recently passed away. Our Secretary and Director of the University of California - Berkeley, ITS Library remembers Dan: Dan Krummes, treasured colleague and former director of the Institute of Transportation Studies Library, passed away on Thursday, October 18, at the age of 62 following a long illness.  Dan joined the institute’s library in 1976. He was named Chief Cataloger in 1981, Library Co-Director in 1992, and served as Library Director until his retirement in 2006. A capstone to his long and distinguished career was being named “Distinguished University Librarian” in 2005 by the Librarians Association of the University of California, Berkeley, the highest honor bestowed by the University upon campus librarians. A member of the Special Libraries Association for more than 25 years, Dan was active in the Transportation Division, serving as division chair, chairing numerous committees, and editing the division’s bulletin. He served on the association’s nominating committee and on the board of the San Francisco Bay Region Chapter. Dan also was involved with the Transportation Research Board and served as Secretary of the Library and Information Science for Transportation Committee for six years. Dan had a deep and abiding interest in transportation, particularly maritime history. His exceptional leadership of the library is reflected in the outstanding depth and breadth of the collection. His influence is seen in the ongoing involvement of library staff in national efforts to improve access to transportation information. I had the pleasure of working with Dan for more than five years and have him to thank for being involved not only with transportation, but with the transportation library community. He greatly valued his professional connections and the many friends he made during his career and he conveyed the importance of those networks to me. He left big shoes to fill and I will sorely miss Dan as a friend and colleague. Dan is survived by Douglas Brookes, his partner of 36 years.  Condolences can be sent to him at 3927 La Cresta Ave, Oakland, CA, 94602. Arrangements for a memorial service are pending. Rita Evans, ITS Library Director

Call for Posters: Open Data in Transportation

The LIST Committee is sponsoring a poster session for the Transportation Research Board 92nd Annual Meeting on Open Data in Transportation.

We invite you to submit proposals for a poster session focusing on open data projects and initiatives that improve access to information, enable more robust research, and allow for more informed decision making. The poster session will focus on varied aspects of open data programs and projects throughout the transportation community. From agencies, the research community, to public interest groups and app developers, posters will highlight new and innovative projects highlighting how open data has been used and what level of editing, analyzing and aggregation is needed to make the data usable. The session will also show the challenges and pitfalls of open data programs, such as staffing and hardware costs, as well as licensing and liability, and their solutions.

Submit your poster proposals no later than Friday, September 7, 2012 by sending them to: Kendra K. Levine (klevine@library.berkeley.edu)

For more details can be found here.
