Much of the infrastructure to support this policy is being developed under the Jisc-funded Damaro Project [<a href="#2">2</a>]. The nascent services that underpin the University’s RDM (research data management) infrastructure have been divided into four themes:</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue71/rumsey-jefferies" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue71 feature article neil jefferies sally rumsey bodleian libraries datacite jisc orcid uk data archive university of oxford dmponline impact project aggregation algorithm api archives cataloguing controlled vocabularies curation data data citation data management data model data set database digital archive digital library eprints fedora commons identifier infrastructure jacs linked data metadata oai-pmh open access open archives initiative passwords preservation purl rdf repositories research research information management schema search technology semantic web software solr standards uri url vocabularies wireframe xml Thu, 13 Jun 2013 20:23:22 +0000 lisrw 2446 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Book Review: Managing Research Data http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue69/rumsey-rvw <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue69/rumsey-rvw#author1">Sally Rumsey</a> reviews a book which describes and explains the topics of interest central to practitioners involved with research data management.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Higher Education institutions (HEIs) in the UK are planning and implementing infrastructure and services to manage research data more urgently than they did for research publications. One policy framework sent to UK vice-chancellors from a major UK funding body (EPSRC), which set out clear expectations of responsibilities for data management at institutions within a given timetable, appears to have been the spark that prompted research data management (RDM) to be taken up by the upper echelons of management, and concrete activities set in place to start addressing the problem.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue69/rumsey-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue69 review sally rumsey bbc bodleian libraries datacite dcc jisc oais university of oxford archives blog curation data data citation data management data set doi foi framework higher education identifier infrastructure repositories research social networks wiki Sun, 29 Jul 2012 13:51:34 +0000 lisrw 2361 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk OAI-ORE, PRESERV2 and Digital Preservation http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue57/rumsey-osteen <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue57/rumsey-osteen#author1">Sally Rumsey</a> and <a href="/issue57/rumsey-osteen#author2">Ben O'Steen</a> describe OAI-ORE and how it can contribute to digital preservation activities.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The new framework for the description and exchange of aggregations of Web resources, OAI-ORE, had its European release in April 2008 [<a href="#1">1</a>]. Amongst its practical uses, OAI-ORE has a role to play in digital preservation and continued access to files. This article describes the basic outline of the framework and how it can support the PRESERV2 project digital preservation model of provision of preservation services and interoperability for digital repositories.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue57/rumsey-osteen" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue57 feature article ben osteen sally rumsey jisc oai the national archives university of oxford brii preserv aggregation archives curation data data management data mining dcmi digital preservation digital record object identification digital repositories dissemination droid dspace eprints fedora commons framework identifier infrastructure institutional repository interoperability metadata oai-ore oai-pmh ontologies open archives initiative preservation provenance rdf repositories research resource description search technology semantic web software standards uri url video vocabularies web browser web resources web storage xml Thu, 30 Oct 2008 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1435 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Book Review: The Institutional Repository http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue47/rumsey-rvw <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue47/rumsey-rvw#author1">Sally Rumsey</a> recommends a new book about institutional repositories.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>This timely publication has arrived at a point where a number of UK Higher Education (HE) establishments have set up, have started, or have at least considered setting up their own institutional repository (IR). This is a new area for all involved, many experiences so far have been ground-breaking and there are few (if any) IRs which would describe themselves as mature. Not only is the technology developing rapidly, but user needs are continuing to be determined and institutions are expanding the ways in which an IR can serve their needs.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue47/rumsey-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue47 review sally rumsey london school of economics university of hull repomman archives cataloguing copyright digital library digital preservation dspace electronic theses higher education identifier institutional repository internet explorer interoperability learning objects metadata mets open access open source preservation repositories research software standards Sat, 29 Apr 2006 23:00:00 +0000 editor 1241 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Exam Papers Online http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue26/exam-papers <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue26/exam-papers#author1">Sally Rumsey</a> on an innovative system for providing electronic access to examination papers.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>The George Edwards Library at the University of Surrey is close to completing a project for providing on-line access to the University’s exam papers for members of the University.
