2 Archives, galleries, knowledge-bases, intranets, libraries, museums, stores, repositories... What are we trying to achieve with these virtual spaces? What can we learn about the future sustainability of digital repositories from the models evolved by physical repositories? Are there some potential digital exemplars to monitor? The nature of web applications can mean that, (with suitably developed architecture) a digital repository can serve more than one master. How might digital repositories make this pragmatic step? “A space for all reasons...” Source: carrotmuseum.com

10 Project information: Digital Ladywood is a Local History Project which aims to record the life and times of people living on the five estates making up Attwood Green, and also the wider area of Ladywood. As well as this website there will also be a series of displays in community areas across the estates. The project aims to: Support schools with their local history curriculum Provide opportunities for learning by involving local people and children in the creation of the website, and research about their local area Encourage and support oral tradition focusing on the development of communication, interviewing, speaking and listening skills Provide historical background for new residents Help foster community spirit, generate pride and a sense of belonging in the area Project information: Digital Ladywood is a Local History Project which aims to record the life and times of people living on the five estates making up Attwood Green, and also the wider area of Ladywood.

16 Rural knowledge landscape

17 A resource for the broader community Each organisation’s documents can be browsed Search dialog on each page

18 What’s within? A search for barley... Most relevant ‘technical notes’ presented first......followed by the most relevant research papers......and open learning materials

19 Practitioner focused materials......easily discovered...

20 Sometimes through serendipity

21 Open Access model not strong in Journals servicing ‘Food, Farming, Environment’ OpenFields available to 25 Landbased Colleges and Lantra SSC as a repository for technical and Open Learning materials. Small subscription proposed. Landex College Consortium approval, but each College needs funds to collate and assure materials. Edina-hosted LLL index being unsupported by Aberystwyth from summer Some distress among ALLCU/Landex Librarians Intute Agriculture, Food, Forestry Potential for cross-searching Our DOI/OFI system helpful BBRSC support PubMedCentral as part of funder’s group led by Wellcome. Proposal put to them to support OpenFields research collection in similar way, with Defra. NERC NORA. Well-run e-prints research papers repository for their 4 Research Institutes.. and others? SWORD potential? Levy Companies have agreed to aggregate 100s of technical materials into OpenFields. Strong support from Chief Scientist, Prof Ian Crute Trade press wary because of perceived competition as a knowledge service Scottish Agricultural College paid by Scottish Govt to write Technical Notes. Good source, but not collaborative. ADAS now private. OpenFields aimed at the ‘ADAS Gap’. People understand… PLCs: Good technical notes with a commercial bias. We are considering offering to host them for a fee, with items open to user comments Biosciences KTN Obvious partner, TSB funded, but ‘early days’..? Public Sector: DEFRA website hosts 1000s technical notes and research papers, but is un-navigable Business Link. Some interest. Environment Agency, HSE, Natural England, Forestry Commission supportive. Lifelong Learning Networks VetNet and ReedNet. Potential for open-access sharing of course materials Research repositories Newcastle Reading Warwick HRI? Nottingham Welsh Repositories Network Professional journals with subscription model. RASE Journal will be in OpenFields in the next month, with 1 year embargo OpenFields well suited to preserving project outputs on a case-by-case basis Knowledge community ‘marketplace’
