jafer

Z39.50 is a computer-to-computer communications protocol designed to support searching and retrieval of information, full-text documents, bibliographic data, images and multimedia in a distributed network environment. Based on client/server architecture and operating over the Internet, the Z39.50 protocol is supporting an increasing number of applications (William Moen, the ANSI/NISO Z39.50 Protocol1). The JISC notes, however, that: 'Z39.50 is of considerable vintage:. and a heavy weight solution which is unattractive to some developers (JISC Circular 5/99). Z39.50 implementations are hampered by the lack of powerful, easy to use, Z39.50-based tools and servers and the need for a high degree of development time. Building on the extensive Z39.50 experience of the Oxford University Libraries Automation Service, the JAFER Toolkit Project will produce a lightweight Z39.50 toolkit specifically aimed for creating Internet based learning and teaching packages. Project start date: 2001-01-01. Project end date: 2002-01-31. (Excerpt from this source)

opendoar

OpenDOAR is an authoritative directory of academic open access repositories. Each OpenDOAR repository has been visited by project staff to check the information that is recorded here. This in-depth approach does not rely on automated analysis and gives a quality-controlled list of repositories. As well as providing a simple repository list, OpenDOAR lets you search for repositories or search repository contents. Additionally, we provide tools and support to both repository administrators and service providers in sharing best practice and improving the quality of the repository infrastructure.

rsp

The Repositories Support Project (RSP) began as a 2.5 year project to co-ordinate and deliver good practice and practical advice to English and Welsh HEIs to enable the implementation, management and development of digital institutional repositories. The second, 3-year phase, began in March 2009. The RSP will contribute to building repository capacity, knowledge and skills within institutions. Through providing guidance and advice it will benefit the whole of the UK sector resulting in the wider take-up and development of institutional repositories in HEIs. The aim of the RSP is to progress the vision of a deployed network of inter-working repositories for academic papers, learning materials and research data across the UK. Whilst fulfilling the business requirements of HEIs to manage their assets, showcase research outputs, and share learning materials, such a network of populated repositories will be a major step forward in the provision of open access materials. As basic objectives of the project it has been agreed with JISC that the RSP should provide activities, support and advice, to achieve: * More repositories * More content in repositories * More use of content by researchers. *More re-use of that content by service providers offering innovative services *Wide-spread acceptance and use of standards-based approach to repository development and use. The First Phase of the project ran from October 2006 until March 2009, under the Repositories and Preservation Programme (http://www.jisc.ac.uk/whatwedo/programmes/reppres.aspx ), and was a consortium of the University of Nottingham, University of Wales Aberystwyth, University of Southampton, and UKOLN. The Second Phase of the project runs from March 2009 until March 2012, and is being carried out by the Centre for Research Communications at the University of Nottingham. Project start date: 2006-10-01. Project end date: 2012-03-30. (Excerpt from this source)

e-curator

The E-Curator research project "3D colour scans for remote object identification and assessment" is a project currently underway at UCL Museums and Collections. This project draws on UCL's expertise both in curatorship and in e-Science. It takes advantage of the presence at UCL of world class collections across a range of disciplines and of a state of the art colour scanner, the quality of which is unequalled in the UK. The project explores the use of 3D colour scanning and e-Science technologies to capture and share very large 3D colour scans and detailed datasets about museum artefacts in a secure computing environment. The combination of these technologies could assist curators and conservators in object identification and assessment, both locally and remotely. Project start date: 2007-12-17. Project end date: 2010-12-17. (Excerpt from this source)

nesli

NESLi2 is the JISC Collections national initiative for licensing online journals on behalf of the higher and further education and research communities in the UK. NESLi2 was established in 2004 as a successor to earlier consortial initiatives that emerged with the arrival of online journals in the mid-1990s.The content from 17 leading scholarly publishers are covered by our NESLi2 agreements which typically span 1-3 years in duration and over 7,000 online journals are available to authorised users. Financial savings on the content purchased, as a result of focused negotiations by our staff, amounted to ú13.5 million in 2010 and we estimate that NESLi2 has saved the community over ú40 million since its inception in 2004. The content itself is made accessible directly from publishersÆ bespoke web platforms. (Excerpt from this source)

repomman

The RepoMMan Project is developing a tool which will allow users to interact with a Fedora digital repository as part of their natural workflow. The University of Hull takes a broad view of repository function, seeing it as offering storage, access, management and preservation of a wide range of objects from conception to completion and possible publication. The effectiveness of a repository is linked to the quality of its metadata. When a user chooses to make an object 'public' the RepoMMan tool will pre-populate its metadata using contextual information and metadata generation tools. The user is then able to refine this automated 'first-pass'. (Excerpt from this source)

citeulike

CiteULike is based on the principle of social bookmarking and is aimed to promote and to develop the sharing of scientific references amongst researchers. In the same way that it is possible to catalog web pages (with Furl and del.icio.us) or photographs (with Flickr), scientists can share information on academic papers with specific tools (like CiteULike) developed for that purpose. The website is sponsored by the publisher Springer Science+Business Media. Richard Cameron developed CiteULike in November 2004 and in 2006 Oversity Ltd. was established to develop and support CiteULike. When browsing issues of research journals, small scripts stored in bookmarks (bookmarklets) allow one to import articles from repositories like PubMed, and CiteULike supports many more. Then the system attempts to determine the article metadata (title, authors, journal name, etc.) automatically. Users can organize their libraries with freely chosen tags and this produces a folksonomy of academic interests. (Excerpt from Wikipedia article: CiteULike)

scarlet

The SCARLET (Special Collections using Augmented Reality to Enhance Learning and Teaching) project has been working with academics, students and the John Rylands University Library at the University of Manchester to exploit AR to enhance access to their Special Collections with great success (http://teamscarlet.wordpress.com). This project builds on the mixed team approach adopted, and giving two other UK universities the knowledge and skills needed to use Augmented Reality (AR) to enhance access to their collections, by embedding the SCARLET Toolkit. The project works with enthusiastic staff at the University of Sussex and the Craft Study Centre at the University for the Creative Arts to trial the AR Toolkit with two different types of collections (mass observations and visual arts). This results in two case studies of embedding AR in the wider community and further examples of AR applications. (Excerpt from this source)

vif

Continuing from the work of the VERSIONS project the project will provide a common infrastructure for the naming and understanding of issues relating to versions of scholarly works. The results of an online survey of repository users about current use of digital objects and about the versioning questions that arise will be used to inform a draft framework, to be developed through an expert working group comprising of members from the project partners and other key stakeholders. The Version Identification Framework will be recommended to the JISC and digital repository communities through a community acceptance plan and a dissemination campaign. Aims: To provide a framework for the identification of versions of digital objects in digital repositories; To inform and support the work of other JISC projects and services in this area; To disseminate the framework widely in order to achieve community acceptance. Specific objectives will include: Discovering how researchers, teachers, learners and others are using digital objects and managing their personal digital resources; Gaining community acceptance by convening a working review group; Discovering the range of digital objects being used and the creation, revision, dissemination and storage processes that content creators go through to share and re-use of digital content. Project start date: 2007-07-10. Project end date: 2008-05-09. (Excerpt from this source)
