jisc powr project

The aim of this work was to raise awareness amongst the web manager community of the need to incorporate preservation strategy into key stages of the web management process, the implicit assumption being that there has, to date, been insufficient sharing of practice and transferral of knowledge between the UK HE/FE Web Management community and other groups responsible for digital preservation and records management processes. In common with organisations across all sectors, university websites are the principal digital marketing tool for those institutions and as such, they are required to look appropriate, function seamlessly and provide users with a wealth of easy to navigate and up-to-date information. What is often unacknowledged, however, is that these same websites may also be a unique repository for evidence of institutional activity which is unrecorded elsewhere, and (viewed collectively) may provide interesting insights into the development of Higher and Further Education digital initiatives over the course of the last fifteen years in ways that have yet to be formally codified. The JISC PoWR project undertook to run three workshops to consult with members of relevant communities. The resultant discussions from these workshops, along with the deliberations of the project team - much of which is reflected on the JISC PoWR Blog- fed into the principle deliverable which is now available as a Handbook. Project start date: 2008-04-28. Project end date: 2008-09-29. (Excerpt from this source)

jisc collections

In 2006, the JISC Content Procurement Company Ltd (trading as JISC Collections) was formed. Originally operating within the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC), JISC Collections was made into a company limited by guarantee that mutually trades with its members and is now a JISC funded service. JISC Collections services all UK Higher Education (HE) and Further Education (FE) institutions and Research Councils (RCs) that receive direct funding from the UK HE and FE funding bodies. It provides institutions with a collections catalogue of free and subscription-based online resources such as full text databases, e-books, digital images, e-journals, online film, learning materials and geospatial data. The negotiations for e-journals are managed under the NESLi2 scheme. The online resources in the collections catalogue (hence the name JISC Collections) are licensed from publishers, aggregators, content providers and each institution decides which resources it wishes to subscribe to based on the needs of their users. Core to the service provided by JISC Collections is the quality evaluation of online resources, the central negotiation process and the national licensing undertaken for each online resource.
