It encompasses computationally intensive science that is carried out in highly distributed network environments or that uses immense datasets that require grid computing. In the US the term <em>cyberinfrastructure</em> has been used to describe the new research environments that support advanced data acquisition, data storage, data management, data integration, data mining, data visualisation and other computing and information processing services over the Internet. In Australia—and other countries—the term <em>eResearch</em> extends e-Science and cyberinfrastructure to other disciplines, including the humanities and social sciences, and denotes the use of information technology to support existing and new forms of research.</p> <p>It is within this rapidly evolving context that the researcher of the 21st century now operates. However not all researchers are responding to changes in this new environment. In this article we will examine the current research paradigm, the main drivers for researchers to engage with this paradigm, reasons for lack of engagement, and a project undertaken at an Australian university—as part of a national initiative—to start to address the problem of making data from research activity, past and current, more discoverable and accessible.</p> <h2 id="Trends_in_the_Evolution_of_Research_Paradigms">Trends in the Evolution of Research Paradigms</h2> <p>Gray [<a href="#2">2</a>] discusses the evolution of research paradigms which has led to the increasingly important role that information technology now plays in supporting research. For thousands of years there was experimental / empirical science followed in the last few hundred years by theoretical science. The third research paradigm, which evolved in the last few decades, was characterised by increasingly complex research challenges based principally on large-scale computational simulation. This led to the concept of holistic systems of systems; the evolution from wet labs (hands-on scientific research and experimentation) to virtual labs; and an emphasis on modelling, simulation, projection and prediction.</p> <p>E-Science / cyberinfrastructure / eResearch are short-hand terms for a new fourth paradigm which is characterised by data-intensive science. The focus is on data analysis and mining; patterns discovery; and the evolution of large databases and data archives. One by-product is the so-called 'data deluge', which has led to enormous challenges in research data management. The fourth paradigm is changing the longstanding model of scholarly communication as, in the words of Clifford Lynch [<a href="#2">2</a>], 'the paper becomes a window for a scientist to not only actively understand a scientific result, but also reproduce it or extend it'. This latest paradigm is also characterised by the collaborative and multidisciplinary nature of the research being undertaken at both national and international levels.</p> <p></p><p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue65/wolski-richardson" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue65 feature article joanna richardson malcolm wolski cornell university griffith university iso microsoft national library of australia national science foundation oai oclc queensland university of technology accessibility archives content management creative commons data data management data mining data set data visualisation database disruptive innovation dublin core e-research e-science foaf framework higher education identifier infrastructure institutional repository licence metadata namespace national library oai-pmh ontologies open access open archives initiative open source owl preservation rae rdf repositories research resource description and access semantic web skos software standards visualisation Fri, 29 Oct 2010 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1591 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Editorial Introduction to Issue 64: Supporting the Power of Research Data http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue64/editorial <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue64/editorial#author1">Richard Waller</a> introduces Ariadne issue 64.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>In these cash-strapped times among all the admonitions to save money here, and resources there, I rather hope to hear much about the necessity of protecting and building the knowledge economy if the UK is to make its way in the globalised world, since we cannot pretend to compete easily in other areas of endeavour.

Trove is a free search engine. It searches across a large aggregation of Australian content. The treasure is over 90 million items from over 1000 libraries, museums, archives and other organisations which can be found at the click of a button. Finding information just got easier for many Australians. Exploring a wealth of resources and digital content like never before, including full-text books, journals and newspaper articles, images, music, sound, video, maps, Web sites, diaries, letters, archives, people and organisations has been an exciting adventure for users and the service has been heavily used. Finding and retrieving instantly information in context; interacting with content and social engagement are core features of the service. This article describes Trove features, usage, content building, and its applications for contributors and users in the national context.</p> <h2 id="Opportunities_for_Libraries">Opportunities for Libraries</h2> <p>I see tremendous opportunities for libraries this year because of advances in technology. The changes in technology mean that anyone can create, describe or recommend content, which means that many people and organisations are becoming librarians or libraries in their own way. Librarians should not be threatened or dismayed by this but rather encouraged, since it means that society is retaining its ongoing interest in the creation, organisation and dissemination of content, and we have an integral role to play in these developments. Libraries and librarians are relevant more than ever in this environment because we have vast amounts of data and information to share, a huge amount of information expertise, and an understanding of how technology can assist us in making information more accessible.</p> <p>We need to have new ideas and re-examine our old ideas to see how technology can help us. What things have we always wanted to do that we couldn't before, like providing a single point of access to all Australian information? Is this still pie in the sky or can we now achieve it? Libraries need to think big. As Charles Leadbeater would say 'Libraries need to think they are leading a mass movement, not just serving a clientele.' [<a href="#2">2</a>] Librarians are often thought of as gatekeepers with the emphasis being on closed access, but technology enables gatekeepers to open doors as well as close them and this is the opportunity I see. However many institutions will need to change their strategic thinking from control/shut to free/open before they can make this transition, and take a large dose of courage as well. The American author Harriet Rubin says, 'Freedom is actually a bigger game than power. Power is about what you can control. Freedom is about what you can unleash.' [<a href="#3">3</a>] The National Library of Australia already took this step forward in 2008 with the advent of the Australian Newspapers beta service, which opened up the raw text of digitised Australian newspapers to the public for improvement, without moderation on a mass scale [<a href="#4">4</a>]. With a long history of collaboration across the Australian cultural heritage sector [<a href="#5">5</a>] with regard to digitisation, storage, and service delivery, the National Library of Australia is well placed to take the lead with innovation in access to information.</p> <p>Some people may say, 'But isn't Google doing that, so why do we still need libraries?' There is no question in my mind that libraries are fundamentally different from Google and other similar services. Libraries are different to Google for these reasons: they commit to provide long-term preservation, curation and access to their content; they have no commercial motives in the provision of information (deemed by various library acts); they aim for universal access to everyone in society; and they are 'free for all'. To summarise: libraries are always and forever. Who can say that of a search engine, or of any commercial organisation, regardless of size?</p> <p></p><p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue64/holley" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue64 feature article rose holley amazon british library google national library of australia oai open library wikipedia aggregation api archives bibliographic data bibliographic database browser copyright curation data database digitisation dissemination doc dublin core facebook flickr ftp google books identifier infrastructure lucene marc metadata mysql national library oai-pmh ocr open archives initiative persistent identifier preservation research resource sharing rss search technology tagging twitter usability video youtube Thu, 29 Jul 2010 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1563 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk IMPACT Conference: Optical Character Recognition in Mass Digitisation http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue59/impact-2009-rpt <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue59/impact-2009-rpt#author1">Lieke Ploeger</a>, <a href="/issue59/impact-2009-rpt#author2">Yola Park</a>, <a href="/issue59/impact-2009-rpt#author3">Jeanna Nikolov-Ramirez Gaviria</a>, <a href="/issue59/impact-2009-rpt#author4">Clemens Neudecker</a>, <a href="/issue59/impact-2009-rpt#author5">Fedor Bochow</a> and <a href="/issue59/impact-2009-rpt#author6">Michael Day</a> report from the first IMPACT Conference, held in The Hague, Netherlands on 6-7 April, 2009.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue59/impact-2009-rpt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue59 event report clemens neudecker fedor bochow jeanna nikolov-ramirez gaviria lieke ploeger michael day yola park abbyy austrian national library british library content conversion specialists d-lib magazine google ibm institute for dutch lexicology kings college london national library of australia national library of the netherlands ukoln university of bath university of munich university of salford impact project internet archive archives born digital copyright data data set database digital library digital preservation digitisation framework information society infrastructure intellectual property interoperability jpeg 2000 national library ocr optical character recognition preservation research search technology software vocabularies xml Wed, 29 Apr 2009 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1475 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk iPRES 2008 http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue57/ipres-2008-rpt <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue57/ipres-2008-rpt#author1">Frances Boyle</a> and <a href="/issue57/ipres-2008-rpt#author2">Adam Farquhar</a> report on the two-day international conference which was the fifth in the series on digital preservation of digital objects held at the British Library, on 29 - 30 September 2008.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue57/ipres-2008-rpt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue57 event report adam farquhar frances boyle british library california digital library cornell university dcc digital preservation coalition indiana university jisc national library of australia national library of new zealand national library of the netherlands oais premis the national archives ukoln university of bath university of virginia crib digital preservation training programme jisc information environment jisc powr project life2 ndiipp powr accessibility aggregation archives blog cd-rom copyright curation data data management digital archive digital curation digital library digital preservation digital repositories digitisation ejournal file format framework frbr identifier infrastructure metadata mets mods national library open data preservation preservation metadata repositories research schema service oriented architecture software standards video warc web resources xml xml schema Thu, 30 Oct 2008 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1441 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Open Repositories 2008 http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue56/or-08-rpt <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue56/or-08-rpt#author1">Mahendra Mahey</a> reports on the third international Open Repositories 2008 Conference, held at the School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton in April 2008.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>This was the third international Open Repositories Conference, the previous two being held in 2007, San Antonio, Texas [<a href="#1">1</a>] and in 2006, Sydney [<a href="#2">2</a>], so Europe was the third continent to host the event.

In at least one area this is not discretionary: the Oral History collections are intrinsically affected by technological change and without moving to digital, access to the collections will be lost as analogue audio technology loses market support. The NLA is implementing a strategy to bridge the difficult transition between fully analogue and fully digital environments.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue8/oral-history" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue8 project update colin webb kevin bradley bbc british library library of congress national library of australia accessibility archives cataloguing copyright data digital audio digital media digitisation metadata multimedia national library preservation research software standards Wed, 19 Mar 1997 00:00:00 +0000 editor 282 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Australian Co-operative Digitisation Project, 1840-45 http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue8/digitisation <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue8/digitisation#author1">Ross Coleman</a> describes a project which will create a unique research infrastructure in Australian studies through the digital conversion of Australian serials and fiction of the seminal period 1840-45.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The Australian Cooperative Digitisation Project, 1840-45 <a href="#REF1">[1]</a> (ACDP) is a collaborative project between the University of Sydney Library, the State Library of New South Wales, the National Library of Australia and Monash University Library funded through a Australian Research Council (ARC) Research Infrastructure (Facilities and Equipment) Program grant.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue8/digitisation" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue8 project update ross coleman cornell university library of congress monash university national library of australia university of oxford university of sydney university of virginia yale university elib archives ascii bibliographic data copyright data digital library digitisation gif infrastructure jstor multimedia national library ocr preservation repositories research resource sharing sgml software tei Wed, 19 Mar 1997 00:00:00 +0000 editor 283 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Down Under With the Dublin Core http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue8/canberra-metadata <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue8/canberra-metadata#author1">Paul Miller</a> and <a href="/issue8/canberra-metadata#author2">Tony Gill</a> offer a view of the recent Dublin Core metadata workshop in the Australian capital, Canberra.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Continuing a long and glorious tradition, the 4th Dublin Core Workshop <a href="#fn1">[1]</a> last month went to a really nice country and picked one of the least lively settlements in which to meet.
