git

Git is a distributed revision control system with an emphasis on speed. Git was initially designed and developed by Linus Torvalds for Linux kernel development. Every Git working directory is a full-fledged repository with complete history and full revision tracking capabilities, not dependent on network access or a central server. Git's current software maintenance is overseen by Junio Hamano. Git is free software distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 2. (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: Git)

international digital publishing forum

The International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) is a trade and standards association for the digital publishing industry, that has been set up in order to establish a reliable and complete standard for ebook publishing. Starting from the Open eBook Publication Structure or "OEB" (1999), which was created loosely around HTML, it then defined the OPS (Open Publication Structure), the OPF (Open Packaging Format) and the OCF (Open Container Format). These formats are the basis for the common EPUB and Mobipocket ebook file formats (Comparison of e-book formats). While the basic standards are now established (pages, hyperlinks, definition of table of contents, authors, etc.) some other standards intersect the hardware field, such as those for power and for features of the hardware reader devices, and are still undergoing change and evolution. Other standards for ecommerce (including Digital Rights Management protections), are tied to the way the ebook is sold or delivered, and are therefore controlled by the respective vendors.

sherpa digital preservation

This project will create a collaborative, shared preservation environment for the SHERPA institutional repositories project framed around the Open Archiving Information Systems (OAIS) Reference Model. The project will bring together the SHERPA institutional repository systems with the preservation repository established by the Arts and Humanities Data Service to create an environment that fully addresses all the requirements of the different phases within the life cycle of digital information. Aims and Objectives Use the OAIS reference model to develop a persistent preservation environment for the SHERPA consortium, assigning rights and responsibilities and establishing protocols and work flow processes that will ensure the long-term preservation of the repository content; Explore the use of METS as the framework for packaging and transferring metadata held within the institutional repositories, including the preservation metadata created by the preservation service; Establish a coordinated set of protocols and software to be implemented as a working preservation service for a group of institutional repositories; Explore the use of open source software and tools to add functionality to and to extend the storage layer of repository software applications; Draw together the experience gained into a Digital Preservation User Guide that will complement the 'The Preservation Management of Digital Material Handbook' created by Maggie Jones and Neil Beagrie, and act as a practical user guide to implementing this type of preservation environment. Project start date: 2005-03-01. Project end date: 2007-07-28. (Excerpt from this source)

uk theses digitisation project

Digitising at least 20,000 paper-borne UK theses will 'kick start' the EThOS service, which will allow open access to theses in electronic form. The project will deliver a fully operational, easily scaleable and financially viable prototype of an UK e-theses online service that will enable users, via one single web interface, to access the full text of electronically stored theses after selection from a database of UK theses. UK postgraduate theses are a very important source of primary research output but, says Colin Galloway, project director of EthOs, "There are currently thousands of theses sitting on the shelves of UK academic libraries, many of which will never have been read by anyone other than the author and supervisor. Even in those cases where there is knowledge of their existence there is no easy access to their content, with the result that potentially useful information is disregarded purely because of logistic/bureaucratic impediments." Under this project, 20,000 digitised theses will be freely supplied as open access, enabling all researchers regardless of location or time to search for, identify and order digitised UK theses, a resource which has had limited exposure via the British Library catalogue (metadata only minus abstract) and the commercial subscription Index To Thesis product. The theses will be supplied to researchers as pdfs. The researcher will be able to read the thesis image on his/her computer screen but, by printing the pdf, he or she will get an exact surrogate of the original thesis. By sourcing surrogates from the electronically stored copies, the original paper theses will be accessed less frequently and so will be better preserved. There are around 500,000 paper theses originating from UK Higher Education Institutions and dating from 1730. Although the project is digitising only 1% of the overall total, it will target the most 'popular' - those that are most likely to be requested and supplied to researchers - so the greater impact will be to release EThOS digitisation resources to digitise further theses. Project start date: 2007-01-01. Project end date: 2008-07-01. (Excerpt from this source)
