9 2. Interoperability, infrastructure & standards

10 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference The Life Cycle Approach Creation Management Collection development Access Repackaging

11 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference Towards a common infrastructure? e-Learning Framework –Technical Framework to support E-Learning JISC Information Environment –Technical architecture based on open standards (Web Services, OAI-PMH, Z39.50, RSS…..) Virtual Research Environment –Framework options e.g. CHEF, Chandler, SAKAI, ?? Common Information Environment –A cross-sectoral vision –Demonstrators –Ariadne article

12 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference The E-Learning Framework (ELF)

13 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference JISC Information Environment architecture

14 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference Common Information Environment

15 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference Standards, standards, standards Z39.50 SRW OAI RSS DC METS MPEG7 MPEG DIDL UDDI WSDL SOAP …. JPEG GIF UK LOM Core WSRP URI DOI OWL HTTP VRML SMIL XHTML RDF …..

16 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference Why advocate a standards culture? Open standards Maximise access –Platforms and delivery channels –Widest range of users Avoid proprietary lock-in –Vendor independent Integrate with other initiatives –eLearning e.g. Curriculum Online Economic benefits –Delivering value-for-money –Return-on-investment Ensure long-term availability of digital assets –Digital preservation and curation

17 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference A few words about metadata Resources –Digital –Physical –Item-level –Collection-level Services –Human-mediated –m2m –Common –Domain-specific Functions –Discovery –Management –Preservation & curation Metadata schema –e.g. Dublin Core, UK LOM Core, METS Application profiles Schema registries –Publication –Mapping

18 3. Digital preservation & digital curation

19 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference Why advocate a digital preservation / curation policy? Long-term access to digital assets Preservation approaches –Emulation, migration –LOCKSS –Universal Virtual Computer OAIS reference model Preservation metadata Provenance Persistent identifiers

20 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference

21 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference

22 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference Digital Curation Centre Providing a range of services Help-desk Curation manual Professional training materials Research & development agendas Outreach & Community Support

23 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference

24 4. Supporting the community

25 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference

26 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference

27 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference Technical Standards & Guidelines Document origins and influence –JISC Information Environment architecture –e-Government Interoperability Framework (e-GIF) Life-cycle approach –Creation, management, collection development, access, repackaging Vocabulary –must, should, may Revisions –New standards –New guidelines on implementation –Latest version February 2003

28 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference

29 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference

30 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference Reporting & Compliance Working in partnership with BECTa Compliance monitoring service Quarterly reporting process –Validation against published standards e.g. accessibility, (X)HTML conformance –Difficult to assess all aspects –Valid reasons e.g. immature standards, lack of tools, cost of implementation –Document with migration strategy Project sign-off –Pragmatic advice & recommendations Estimated >85% compliance

31 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference

32 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference

33 5. Closing remarks

34 Collaboration for Sustainability Conference Observations Evolving technical landscape Big issues –Semantic interoperability –Persistent identifiers Awareness of new developments –e.g. NISO VIEWS Initiative Embedding standards (and skills) Integrating within the workflow Interoperability and innovation: a delicate balance
