a2z

Manchester Computing (MC) and the e-Science Centre for the North West (ESNW), both at the University of Manchester, are proposing to implement and conduct a technical evaluation of the authorisation system, Akenti. (The JISC call specifically requested proposals for the evaluation of this scheme.) The authorisation evaluation will be conducted in the context of the existing MIMAS current awareness service 'zetoc'. The system will be made accessible both as a web server (through digital certificates embedded in the user's web browser along side traditional Athens authentication) and as a web service (using GSI authentication). The existing EPSRC-funded e-Science pilot project my Grid will provide the environment for evaluating the interoperability with praxis gaining currency in the UK e-Science programme. Project start date: 2002-11-14. Project end date: 2004-02-27. (Excerpt from this source)

ahlib

AHLib is a collection of (currently) 105 books in Slovene, from the period 1848û1918. The books are all translations from German and were digitised and their transcription hand-corrected with the aim of conducting translation studies over the corpus. More books from the original AHLib collection of facsimiles and automatic OCR are being corrected for the "Ground Truth Dataset" which is being produced by NUK, the National and University Library of Slovenia, in the context of the EU project IMPACT. Samples from AHLib books are also used as part of the a reference annotated corpus and a "silver standard" corpus as part of IMP language resources for historical Slovene. (Excerpt from this source)

argosi

An Alternate Reality Game (ARG) consists of three elements: a series of challenges, an underlying narrative, and a collaborative community. While all three elements will be facilitated online, many challenges take place in the real world, and may be collaborative or individual. The ongoing story provides coherence to the challenges, and the collaborative community provides a forum for students to share information, provide hints for each other and work together. In this pilot the focus will be a single area of induction: library and information skills. The ARGOSI project aims to examine the potential of ARGs as an engaging alternative method of supporting student orientation, socialisation and induction. The project will address four research objectives. These consider the issue of whether an ARG is an effective and appropriate medium for enabling students to: - Meet the intended learning outcomes of the library and information skills induction; - Create social networks during the induction period; improve their confidence in navigating the city and university campus; - Engage in, and enjoy, the induction experience. Project start date: 2008-04-01. Project end date: 2009-03-31. (Excerpt from this source)

cd-lor

The Community Dimensions of Learning Object Repositories project aims to identify and analyse the factors that influence practical uptake and implementation of learning object (LO) repositories, with a focus on social and cultural issues in support of Programme Objective ii. It will explore the use of LO repositories within learning communities based within single institutions as well as those that exist across institutions, regionally, nationally and internationally. Diverse learning communities are represented through eight project associates with considerable expertise in the development of LO repositories. The project partners will work closely with these associates to develop and test solutions to emerging requirements in support of uptake and implementation of LOs and LO repositories. Outputs include case studies and reports on a range of technical and process/workflow solutions; structured guidelines; and recommendations for institutional strategy and policy, that will be tested by a wide range of learning communities within a range of use cases. These outputs will be of benefit to the wider FE/HE community, particularly to senior managers and those implementing repositories. There will also be benefits to those engaged in initiatives working with other repository types as the project will collaborate closely with other Repository Programme projects to identify areas where common issues and solutions occur. Project start date: 2005-06-01. Project end date: 2007-05-31. (Excerpt from this source)

grade project

Conventional scientific method has historically been data-driven and with current technologies the wealth of created data assets has grown dramatically. Despite this importance, however, sharing data is not easy and many researchers have discussed the problems, including: the willingness to share, locating data, mechanisms for sharing and accessing data. Given these problems, the scoping of a Geospatial Repository for Academic Deposit and Extraction (GRADE) seems both necessary and timely. GRADE will investigate and report on the technical and cultural issues around the reuse of geospatial data within the JISC IE in the context of media-centric, informal and institutional repositories. The aim of GRADE is to lay the foundations for a sustainable infrastructure (both cultural and technical) that underwrites the communities' substantial and ongoing investment in the utilisation of geospatial resources within the learning, teaching and research environments of UK academia. Project start date: 2005-06-01. Project end date: 2007-01-19. (Excerpt from this source)

harvesting the fitzwilliam

Since 1997 the Fitzwilliam Museum has been working to create, and provide access to, a unified electronic database of object records and images for the collections in the care of its five curatorial departments: antiquities, applied arts; coins and medals; illuminated and music; manuscripts, and rare printed books; paintings, drawings and prints. In 1999, the Museum received funding from Re:source (The Council for Museums, Archives and Libraries) for the retrospective accessioning of prints and coins and the creation of complete records for all paintings. By January 2001 nearly 56,000 records were held electronically, although not yet all on a single database. By January 2002, in excess of 60,000 records were held centrally on 'Adlib Museum' - the chosen software system for the Fitzwilliam Museum's unified object catalogue. Many of the 60,000 records have associated images. The Online Public Access Catalogue, which provides web based access to the Adlib catalogue, was made available via the Museum's website in February 2002. During 2001-2002, approximately 20,000 objects were packed for storage in preparation for a major building extension to the Museum during 2002-2003. Many digital photographs of decanted objects were taken during this period. In parallel to the documentation work described, the Museum is developing A Museum for All, an electronic public information resource offering enhanced interpretation of a selection of key objects. This project complements the Documentation and JISC-FAIR projects. It will offer the user additional information, providing context and creating links between a selection of 300 objects over time, by themes, iconography, artists, materials and methods. It will encourage exploration of the collections and offer education and enjoyment both remotely and within the Museum when the project is complete in 2004. The Joint Information Steering Committee's Focus on Access to Information Resources programme offers the opportunity to further enhance access to the Museum's electronic object catalogue. Metadata (information about data generally, and information about objects in the Museum context specifically) for 100,000 Museum objects will be made available for 'harvesting', by the Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS), through the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH). In addition, two specific databases - Corpus of Early Mediaeval Coins Finds (EMC) and Sylloge of Coins of the British Isles (SCBI) - will be made available for OAI harvesting by the Archaeology Data Service (ADS). The project, in line with the FAIR programmes objectives, will pilot and provide public access to information about selected Fitzwilliam Museum objects. This information will also be available in conjunction with other collections data held or harvested by the AHDS and ADS. Project start date: 2002-08-01. Project end date: 2004-07-31.
