dmtpsych

The aim of this project is to build capacity and skills within psychology postgraduates relating to research data management. The project will build upon existing research data management materials developed by the Digital Curation Centre (DCC) to create discipline-focussed postgraduate training materials that can be embedded into postgraduate research training for the psychological sciences. The materials will consist of: PowerPoint slides to be used in lectures and an associated workbook containing psychology specific guidance on completing the DCC's Data Management Planning Tool (DMPT) (including worked examples), and a copy of the DMPT to be completed by students. The lectures will be structured along the lines of the existing DCC DMPT with the eight key sections forming the centrepiece of six psychology specific lectures of two hours each. Prior to the launch of the training materials the guidance will be transferred to the online DCC Data Management Planning Tool in collaboration with DCC. The training materials will be developed and piloted in the department of psychology at the University of York, in partnership with the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University. Other departments within the psychological sciences will be invited to trial the pilot materials before the official launch. Project start date: 2010-08-01. Project end date: 2011-07-31.

dner

Distributed National Electronic Resource (DNER) was a JISC project with a vision of online provision for the educational community, in which high-quality resources would be accessible from any location, easily navigated and cross-searchable by subject or data type, inspired the original Distributed National Electronic Resource (DNER) plans. Although the establishing of a distributed national electronic resource is still a key part of the JISC strategy, new factors suggested it was time to move beyond 'the DNER' and for JISC to find more relevant ways to communicate its activities and its underlying objectives.

docusend

Docusend will contribute to the development of the JISC Information Environment by creating a one-stop document delivery service for handling journal service requests, which is hospitable to being accessed via other portal and broker services. It will support the JISC's aim of integrating access to services by linking document delivery to a number of JISC initiatives to provide seamless access to journal resources from resource discovery through to delivery. Docusend is part of Join-UP, a cluster of four projects (Docusend, zetoc, Xgrain and ZBLSA) which aims to realise the full potential of bibliographic services by informing users about the location of third-party services on the materials referenced therein and the means, where appropriate, to connect automatically to request and delivery mechanisms. Join-UP contributes to the Discover/Locate/Request/Access structure of the Information Environment. The overall aim of the project is to create an accessible, easy to use, one-stop, integrated journal article delivery service. Docusend aims to bring together a wide variety of document delivery and related services in ways that appear transparent and seamless to the user. The objectives are to: Provide seamless access to journals from resource discovery through to delivery Develop the capability to act as a national gateway for document delivery requests Build a consortium of content providers through partnerships and links with a number of suppliers including traditional resource-rich libraries, publishers, the JISC's data services, learned societies, etc; Deliver journal articles in electronic format wherever possible (whether born digital or through electronic delivery of print sources); Test and, if feasible, implement direct end user requesting and end user delivery. Project start date: 2001-04-01. Project end date: 2004-10-31. (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)

e-mapscholar

The e-Map Scholar project was part of the Enhancing JISC data services for Teaching and Learning project cluster, with a focus on improving use of existing JISC owned resources through the JISC data services for learning and teaching. Digimap is a JISC-funded Web service that delivers Ordnance Survey (OS) cartographic products and digital map data across the Internet via a simple-to-use interface. Building on a successful JISC-funded Electronic Libraries (eLib) project, it provides convenient, on-demand access to some of the best and most detailed map data available anywhere in the world. e-Map Scholar aimed to support both those learners who need to progress to using these software packages, and also those whose needs are more simple: to understand how to use geo-spatial data more effectively. e-Map Scholar aimed to promote and enhance the use of digital map data in learning and teaching, by developing resources applicable to all geo-spatial data available to the academic community and to enable staff to provide new, exciting and adaptive learning materials using geo-spatial data. Project start date: 2001-01-01. Project end date: 2003-05-01. (Excerpt from this source)

ebank uk

Working in the area of digital repositories of crystallographic data, eBank UK is an interdisciplinary project that ran between 2003 and 2007, across 3 funding phases. It was led by UKOLN in partnership with the Intelligence, Agents & Multimedia Group, Department of Electronics & Computer Science and the Department of Chemistry, University of Southampton. In 2008, the focus of activity moved to the follow-on eCrystals project. Key deliverables included the eCrystals archive (an OAI-PMH compliant repository at the University of Southampton, populated with a number of datasets from the chemistry sub-discipline of crystallography) and a demonstrator for an aggregation service showing the potential for searching across dataset and publication metadata.

edspace

VLEs have proved to be useful tools in facilitating staff in organising educational resources and activities in a hierarchical structure representing the structure of Programmes and Units. While they are excellent vehicles for delivery of materials, they are not ideal mechanisms for the management and curation of materials. There is an urgent need for a repository which focuses on the educational process and the storage, retrieval and sharing of educational materials which can be used to populate VLEs. The University of Southampton has taken the strategic decision to develop a repository for educational materials using its own well-established EPrints research repository software as the mechanism. The aim is to use a co-design process approach both to specify and to implement the details of the system which will be deliverable and sustainable. This will extend and embed the EPrints software within the educational domain. In doing so, the project will develop a richer understanding of processes of institutional change and integration at both a strategic and discipline level. Project start date: 2007-11-01. Project end date: 2009-03-01. (Excerpt from this source)

education portal

Education, as a subject, is covered in part by the subject gateways that form the JISC's Resource Discovery Network. A coherent coverage of education, however, is best met through a separate treatment of the subject. The British Education Internet Resource Catalogue and British Education Portal will strengthen coverage in this area and complement the existing RDN hubs. In turn, the project will benefit from the experience and documentation of the hubs and from the results of the Subject Portals Development Project (also funded as part of the DNER Development Programmes). The project's overriding aim is to improve access to, and use of, information relating to educational issues. The specific objectives are to: Establish an internet resource catalogue (IRC) and, subsequently, a Portal to a range of resources supporting educational research, policy and practice; Build on the strengths of selected databases managed by the British Education Index office to furnish Portal content; Establish means for institutions to supply content for the IRC and portal databases; Evaluate the impact of the new resources on information seeking behaviour within key user groups. Project start date: 2000-10-01. Project end date: 2004-10-31. (Excerpt from this source)

eidcsr

The Embedding Institutional Data Curation Services in Research (EIDCSR) project seeks to implement selected elements of the digital curation lifecycle by embedding policy, workflow, and sustainability solutions within two 'data rich' research groups. The project will join up existing institutional and departmental services, using an approach that can scale to address the data preservation challenges of research groups that generate, share and reuse research data. The project is an institutional collaboration bringing together research groups, Library and Computing services, and the Research Services Office to curate data by integrating research workflows with the Fedora digital asset management system, long-term file storage, underpinned by policy development. The proposal also has the tangible support of IBM. The project builds on the the range of digital repository activities undertaken by the University, notable the Scoping Digital Repository Services for Research Data Management project, as well as the Bridging the Interoperability Divide (BID) and Building the Research Information Infrastructure (BRII) projects. The project is aligned with the University's commitment to the curation of data produced by its researchers and is consistent with the data management plan and registry proposed for the UK Research Data Service (UKRDS) Pathfinder service. Project start date: 2009-04-01. Project end date: 2010-09-01. (Excerpt from this source)

electronic ephemera

The John Johnson collection is widely recognised as one of the most important collections of printed ephemera in the world and generally regarded as the most significant single collection of ephemera in the UK. Containing 1.5 million items ranging in date from 1508 to 1939, it spans the entire range of printing and social history. It contains a high proportion of unique material which has remained hidden to researchers up until now and which will surface through this innovative digitisation project. By their very nature, many of the items contained in the John Johnson collection were intended to be short-lived and disposable, and it was only because of the vision and dedication of John de Monins Johnson and his supporters that so many have been preserved to provide the unique record that survives today. This innovative joint enterprise between the Bodleian Library of the University of Oxford and ProQuest Information and Learning will result in the digitisation of more than 65,000 complete items (well in excess of 150,000 images) from the John Johnson Collection and so provide a unique insight into our nation's past. The collection offers direct access to rare primary source materials and evidence of our cultural, social, industrial, and technological histories. It is particularly valuable to anyone interested in the everyday lives of ordinary citizens. These lost treasures of everyday life will be digitised to the highest standards and made freely available to all teachers and researchers working in the UK's HE and FE sectors, and to the general population via the 32,000 supported terminals in the UK's 4,200 public libraries. Moreover, the rigorous and extensive metadata that will be specially created to accompany these digital objects will be searchable by anyone with access to the Internet. Until now, it has only been possible to make these materials available to a relatively small number of scholars owing to both geographical and physical constraints, and the fragility of many of the materials themselves which makes browsing the material a slow and often unwieldy process. The creation of expertly described, high-quality digital surrogates will expose these hidden resources to a far wider audience than could ever be achieved via any other means, and enable readers to find what they are looking for much more quickly and to work simultaneously on the same items. Project start date: 2007-01-01. Project end date: 2008-12-01. (Excerpt from this source)

elib

The Electronic Libraries programme (eLib) resulted from the recommendations in chapter 7 of the Joint Funding Councils' Libraries Review Group, chaired by Sir Brian Follett. This Group reviewed libraries and related provision in higher education in the UK, and was commissioned jointly by the four UK HE funding bodies, HEFCE, SHEFC, HEFCW and DENI. Its report (known as the Follett report) was published in December 1993. The programme had £15,000,000 of funding over three years. The aim of eLib was to 'transform the use and storage of knowledge in higher education institutions'. It was managed by the JISC's Committee on Electronic Information, though the JISC committee which was set up initially to take forward the Follett recommendation was the Follett Implementation Group for Information Technology, FIGIT. Phase 3 was designed to build on successes and to have four components: 1) hybrid libraries; 2) large scale resource discovery, or clumps; 3) preservation; 4) turning early projects into services. An (unmaintained) archive of eLib programme and project information can currently be found on the UKOLN website. (Excerpt from this source)

endangered archives programme

Endangered Archives Programme aims to contribute to the preservation of archival material that is in danger of destruction, neglect or physical deterioration world-wide. This is achieved principally through the award of grants in an annual competition. The grants provide funding to enable successful applicants to locate relevant endangered archival collections, to arrange their transfer to a suitable local archival home where possible, to create digital copies of the material and to deposit the copies with local institutions and the British Library.

entag

Enhanced Tagging for Discovery, a Semantic Interoperability Demonstrator, will investigate the combination and comparison of controlled and folksonomy approaches to semantic interoperability supporting resource discovery in repositories and digital collections. This project will demonstrate and evaluate the combination of both approaches in the context of repositories and digital collections, attempting to get the best of both worlds. The project will investigate deploying demonstrators with two communities of use: at Intute, focusing mainly on tagging by readers (postgraduate users annotating resources with tags); and at CCLRC, focusing mainly on tagging by authors (when they deposit in the repository). The project will evaluate the results by a range of quantitative and qualitative measures. It will evaluate scenarios for indexing and search. It will make recommendations with reference to resource discovery in digital repository The aim of the project is "to build a demonstrator to test the combination and comparison of controlled and folksonomy approaches to semantic interoperability." We wish to explore how to optimise social tagging systems for discovery and how to combine them in different ways with more controlled knowledge organisation and retrieval systems. We aim to investigate whether vocabulary control and the use of an established KOS can assist in moving free social tagging beyond personal bookmarking to aid resource discovery in context of the JISC Information Environment and eFramework. The project will demonstrate use of tagging in different environments and will provide an interface that enables use of a traditional classification scheme to enhance free form tags. The project will consider issues, such as whether prompting with controlled terminology is beneficial. Aims and objectives: To build a demonstrator to test the combination and comparison of controlled and folksonomy approaches to semantic interoperability; To investigate whether vocabulary control and the use of an established KOS can assist in moving free social tagging beyond personal bookmarking to aid resource discovery in context of the JISC Information Environment and eFramework. The project will: Demonstrate use of tagging in different environments (within Intute and CCLRC); Provide an interface that enables use of a traditional classification scheme to enhance free form tags; Consider issues, such as whether prompting with controlled terminology is beneficial.

epistle

One of the ways in which we may be able to encourage University students to achieve more in their studies and gain the careers they desire is to enable them to reflect upon their own learning. This process of student reflection may include recognition of their achievements and skills, as well as planning ahead for their personal, educational and career aspirations. A novel and useful tool to assist in the process of reflection is the electronic Portfolio (ePortfolio). ePortfolios are the subject of this project. The ePistle project will investigate the potential of ePortfolio use for student retention and progression in the catchment area of the University of Wolverhampton. It will create the opportunity for groups of students from two local schools and three Further Education colleges to use an ePortfolio system. The project will then investigate the use of ePortfolios by these students in terms of the if, how, what, when and related to this it will uncover how best to embed these into a curriculum. The project will also investigate how ePortfolios are and can be used by both those students wishing to progress along their education path and those institutions who will accept them. The overall aims of this project are twofold. The first is to gain a better understanding of the way in which ePortfolios are used (or not used) by students and how best they can integrated into the curriculum. The second is to observe how ePortfolios are used for assisting progression from one institution to another, by both students and institutions' admissions departments. The outcomes will be: - A set of materials and guidelines which will assist teachers to embed an ePortfolio into the curriculum; - A set of guidelines to frame the use of ePortfolios for accreditation for entry into Higher Education; Policy statement or set of guidelines to frame the use of ePortfolios for accreditation for entry into Higher Education written; - A set of guidelines for the use of ePortfolios in colleges and schools as artefacts to enable learners' transition or progression to other institutions of education; - A policy statement or set of guidelines to frame the issues around storage, and ongoing access of learners' ePortfolios is written and endorsed by ITS and legal team; - A report into the investigation of the issues which affect the use and non-use of e-Portfolios by learners. Project start date: 2005-04-01. Project end date: 2007-07-31. (Excerpt from this source)

eprints uk

The Resource Discovery Network's ePrints UK was funded by the JISC IE Development Programme, under the JISC Circular 1/02 call 'Focus on Access to Institutional Resources Programme (FAIR)' as one of the eprints cluster projects. The project built upon RDN's experience in implementing the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting to share metadata between the RDN partners to create the aggregated search facility, ResourceFinder. ePrints UK will benefit from the RDN partners' expertise in developing services tailored for particular subject audiences, the considerable existing user base visiting existing RDN services and the ongoing work of the JISC funded Subject Portals Project.
