One sector where the challenges of preservation and long-term access to resources are well rehearsed is within the archives sector.

It is a large university with 20,000 students, some forty departments covering most disciplines other than medicine and a huge programme of continuing professional development (CPD). Set up as 'a place of useful learning' it has always specialised in the applied disciplines – business, engineering, professional training (teachers, lawyers and social workers) and has set out to be quite different from its better-known competitors.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue58/law" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue58 feature article derek law google university college london university of strathclyde archives blog born digital cataloguing copyright data digital asset management digital library digitisation ebook ejournal google books institutional repository marc rae repositories research search technology software wiki Fri, 30 Jan 2009 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1454 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk dev8D: JISC Developer Happiness Days http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue58/jisc-dev8d-rpt <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue58/jisc-dev8d-rpt#author1">Julian Cheal</a> reports on the 5-day JISC's Developer Happiness Days event held at Birckbeck College, London over 16 - 21 February 2009.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Firstly some background as to why dev8D came about. David Flanders (JISC) and Ben O'Steen (Oxford University Library Services) over the years have attended many conferences: what they found were that the places and talks from which they benefited most were outside the programmed seminars and presentations. It was during conversations between sessions at these events with other developers, managers, delegates that they felt learned most.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue58/jisc-dev8d-rpt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue58 event report julian cheal bbc british museum jisc microsoft open university ukoln university of bath university of liverpool university of oxford university of southern queensland blog data dspace eprints fedora commons firefox higher education interoperability json open source programming language python repositories rss screencast search technology software twitter url video youtube Fri, 30 Jan 2009 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1456 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Data Preservation and Long-term Analysis in High-Energy Physics http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue58/dplta-hep-rpt <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue58/dplta-hep-rpt#author1">Richard Mount</a> reports on the First Workshop on Data Preservation and Long-Term Analysis in High-Energy Physics, held at DESY (Deutsche Elektronen-Synchrotron), Hamburg, Germany, on 26-28 January 2008.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue58/dplta-hep-rpt" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue58 event report richard mount cornell university dcc science and technology facilities council slac national accelerator laboratory archives ascii data data set database digital curation framework infrastructure interoperability linux ocr open access operating system portfolio preservation research search technology software standards Fri, 30 Jan 2009 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1457 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group (PASIG) Fall Meeting http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue58/sun-pasig-2008-11-rpt <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser-article"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><a href="/issue58/sun-pasig-2008-11-rpt#author1">Paul Walk</a> reports on the Sun-PASIG winter meeting held in Baltimore, USA on 18-20 November 2008.</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>I had managed to miss the previous two PASIG (Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group)[<a href="#1">1</a>] meetings, so was delighted to find myself finally able to participate by attending the Fall meeting.

Who has not looked up driving directions on MapQuest or used Google Earth to look at a city of interest on their personal computer? And most cars manufactured in the last few years can come equipped with GPS technology. Interestingly enough, though, most users of these tools have only a vague idea that they are based on digital geospatial data such as satellite imagery and digital elevation models (DEM).</p> <p><a href="http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue58/lafortune-rvw" target="_blank">read more</a></p> issue58 review sylvie lafortune google laurentian university bibliographic data data database geospatial data gis interoperability metadata preservation research software vocabularies Fri, 30 Jan 2009 00:00:00 +0000 editor 1461 at http://www.ariadne.ac.uk
