mobile internet detective

The Intute Internet Detective is already positioned as an extremely popular, well respected online tutorial, helping the user to assess the academic validity of websites. The project intends to build on the existing service by extending its reach to include mobile users, who, as the mobile Internet has developed, have come to expect higher standards when browsing on their handsets. The needs and behaviour of a mobile surfer differs greatly from a desktop surfer, so 'The Mobile Internet Detective' will deliver a user friendly mobile site that is fast and inexpensive to load, providing the right content, presented in the right order and with an adapted layout.

my references

Based on work to date under D2D, this project aims to develop a demonstrator of `My References'. Through this demonstrator, Copac users would be able to aggregate, tag and annotate resources from all services and maintain them separately in their desired web 2.0 contexts. The user will be able to get an Atom feed of the records they've saved with the long-term potential to manage their collection of records within Copac or a suitable APP client outside of the Copac web site - for instance a VLE, blog, RSS reader, or clients such as Netvibes. We will also investigate how this technology can be applied in the Shibboleth authentication environment across services and search sessions over time. Project start date: 2009-03-02. Project end date: 2009-12-29. (Excerpt from <a href="https://pims.jisc.ac.uk/projects/view/1538">this source</a>)

myexperiment

myExperiment is an open source Web 2.0 repository solution for the born-digital items arising in contemporary research practice. Carefully tailored to the needs of researchers, myExperiment makes it really easy to discover, use, store, share and curate items, to build communities and to form relationships. The myExperiment Repository Enhancement Project is building on this success to deliver an enhanced repository which is coupled seamlessly with EPrints at University of Southampton and the eScholar institutional repository at The University of Manchester (a customised version of Fedora). During the enhancement project we are evolving Packs into more sophisticated "Research Objects" which support replayable, repeatable, reproducible, reusable, repurposable and reliable research. We believe that in the future the sharing of such Research Objects will enhance and ultimately replace the sharing of academic publications in research practice. Project start date: 2009-04-01. Project end date: 2011-03-01. (Excerpt from <a href="http://wiki.myexperiment.org/index.php/Main_Page">this source</a>)

ndiipp

The National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) is an archival program led by the Library of Congress to archive and provide access to digital resources. The U.S. Congress established the program in 2000. The Library was chosen because of its mission to "sustain and preserve a universal collection of knowledge and creativity for future generations," and also because of its role as one of the leading providers of high-quality content on the Internet. The Library of Congress has formed a national network of partners dedicated to preserving specific types of digital content that is at risk of loss. In July 2010, the Library launched a National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA) to extend the work of NDIIPP to more institutions. NDSA has several is developing improved preservation standards and practices; working with experts to identify categories of digital information that are most worthy of preservation; and taking steps to incorporate content into a national collection.

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 <a href="http://www.jisc-collections.ac.uk/nesli2/">this source</a>)

niss

NISS was a service designed to make available to the academic community quality information selected to be authoritative, current and comprehensive through service provision which is economic and effective. NISS was set up with Computer Board funding in November 1987 as a joint project based at Southampton and Bath Universities. After a short period it was amalgamated with CHEST and received a joint funding stream from the Computer Board and subsequently JISC. The funding stream was later separated from that of CHEST by JISC. NISS's main services to the education community that are covered by JISC funding are the NISS Campus and StudentZone websites. NISS also developed the Athens Access Management system. This was developed initially to support its own services, but was then adopted by JISC for access management of its national services.

open exeter

Open Exeter was a JISC-funded project aiming to create an environment in which the University of Exeter was equipped to 'act open' with its research data. The objective was to create an environment in which Exeter was equipped to 'act open' with its research data in order to facilitate collaboration and increase the global impact of research. The Open Exeter project examined how research data is created, managed and used across the University of Exeter in order to create an institutional data repository for all types of research data. It also implemented training and guidance for researchers and reviewed and ratified institutional policy on research data.

open sustainability technology research group

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.

ostrich

The OER Sustainability through Teaching & Research Innovation: Cascading across HEIs (OSTRICH) project, led by the University of Leicester, will transfer and cascade, in usable formats, the key outcomes of Leicester's institutional OER pilot project (OTTER, www.le.ac.uk/otter) to the universities of Bath and Derby. OSTRICH will enable both cascade partners to contextualise key OER lessons learnt, test and transfer OER models, leading to a sustainable approach to OER development and release. 100 credits' worth of OERs in key priority areas will be released by each cascade partner and deposited into the project's own repository and JorumOpen. Stakeholder engagement and benefit will be ensured from day 1 via a robust and realistic workplan, implemented by a highly experienced team with ample OER experience and commitment. The partnership has a track record of delivering on previous successful externally-funded projects. OSTRICH's deliverables and benefits will be disseminated widely and creatively across the partnership, the sector and internationally well beyond the project's life. Project start date: 2010-09-01. Project end date: 2011-08-31. (Excerpt from <a href="https://pims.jisc.ac.uk/projects/view/1835">this source</a>)
