bodleian libraries

The Bodleian Libraries are a collection of approximately 40 libraries that serve the University of Oxford, including, most famously, the Bodleian Library itself, as well as many other (but not all) central and faculty libraries. Together, the libraries hold 11 million printed items, as well as numerous other objects and artefacts. A major product of this collaboration has been a joint integrated library system, OLIS (Oxford Libraries Information System), and its public interface, SOLO (Search Oxford Libraries Online), which provides a union electronic catalogue covering all member libraries, as well as the libraries of individual colleges and other faculty libraries, which are not members of the group but do share cataloguing information. The group, founded in February 2000, was known as the Oxford University Library Services (OULS) until 2 March 2010 (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: Bodleian Libraries)

born digital

The term born-digital refers to materials that originate in a digital form. This is in contrast to digital reformatting, through which analog materials become digital. It is most often used in relation to digital libraries and the issues that go along with said organizations, such as digital preservation and intellectual property. However, as technologies have advanced and spread, the concept of being born-digital has also been discussed in relation to personal consumer-based sectors, with the rise of e-books and evolving digital music. Other terms that might be encountered as synonymous include "natively digital," "digital-first," and "digital-exclusive. (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: Born digital)

brii

BRII will enable efficient sharing of research management information using semantic web technologies. Ontologies and taxonomies will define and describe data objects (eg people, research groups, funding agencies, publications, research 'themes') to forge connections between them and provide web-based services to disseminate and reuse this information in new contexts. It will create efficiencies, greater accuracy of data, and better discovery of research activities at Oxford. University data sources will include academic departments and central services. Half the project will be devoted to stakeholder input, collaboration and 'buy-in' aimed at evolving current work practices and processes. Project start date: 2008-11-03. Project end date: 2010-04-03.

bril

The Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics is a strongly interdisciplinary research division in the School of Biomedical & Health Sciences at King's College London. The Division includes a variety of research groups addressing different topics within this field. The BRIL project aims to enhance the repository facilities at the Randall Division by: o Embedding the repository within the researchers' day-to-day research and experimental practices. o Allowing data and metadata to be captured in automated fashion, for example from equipment or processing and analysis software o Allowing the structure of experimental processes as a whole to be captured, modelled and stored within the repository, rather than just the individual data sets. o Enhancing browse and access facilities so that users can explore and re-use these complex representations, and data exchange facilities to increase interoperability with other repositories in biomedical disciplines. o Integrating the repository into the wider King's infrastructure, and in particular the Institutional preservation practices and policies As well as enhancing this specific repository to address the needs and practices of the targeted research groups, we will also ensure that the architecture and software components produced are sufficiently generic and can be exploited and enhanced in other disciplines and institutions. Project start date: 2009-04-01. Project end date: 2011-03-01. (Excerpt from this source)

Web accessibility refers to the inclusive practice of making websites usable by people of all abilities and disabilities. When sites are correctly designed, developed and edited, all users can have equal access to information and functionality. For example, when a site is coded with semantically meaningful HTML, with textual equivalents provided for images and with links named meaningfully, this helps blind users using text-to-speech software and/or text-to-Braille hardware. When text and images are large and/or enlargable, it is easier for users with poor sight to read and understand the content. When links are underlined (or otherwise differentiated) as well as coloured, this ensures that color blind users will be able to notice them. When clickable links and areas are large, this helps users who cannot control a mouse with precision. When pages are coded so that users can navigate by means of the keyboard alone, or a single switch access device alone, this helps users who cannot use a mouse or even a standard keyboard. When videos are closed captioned or a sign language version is available, deaf and hard of hearing users can understand the video. When flashing effects are avoided or made optional, users prone to seizures caused by these effects are not put at risk. And when content is written in plain language and illustrated with instructional diagrams and animations, users with dyslexia and learning difficulties are better able to understand the content. When sites are correctly built and maintained, all of these users can be accommodated while not impacting on the usability of the site for non-disabled users.
