  • Case Notes: ASR2: Using METS to keep data and metadata together for preservation, Digital Preservation Coalition, July 2010.

    "This case note examines the 'Archival Sound Recordings 2' project from the British Library, noting that one of the challenges for long term access to digitised content is to ensure that descriptive information and digitised content are not separated from each other. The British Library has used a standard called METS to prevent this."

  • A Slice of Research Life: Information Support for Research in the United States, Susan Kroll and Rick Forsman, OCLC Research, © 2010 OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc.

    From the Introduction to the report: "In the spring of 2009, OCLC Research and the Research Information Network (RIN) initiated parallel investigations into current use of tools and services that support of all stages of the research life cycle in institutions of higher education in the U.S. and the United Kingdom. The goal of these joint projects was to discover researchers' needs and desires in a variety of disciplines as they perform the complex tasks of creating new knowledge. By focusing on the tools and services used by researchers, the two studies were to document how these support elements are being used at the present time, how effective they are in meeting researcher needs, and whether there are existing unmet needs that are common to all disciplines or that vary by field....This report summarizes the information gained through interviews held with researchers, research assistants, graduate students, grant and other research administration specialists, and university administrators."

    "Currently, a number of institutions across the countries are working to evolve better models to provide collaborative technology services for scholarship by creating shared cyberspace thro expert collaboration, but this is a challenge for the institutions for a number of reasons. In the last few years, the landscape of digital technology applications projects for the various disciplines in humanities, social sciences, and sciences appears induced by many initiatives. For the creation of research clusters, the research community has thousands of databases, websites, local computing clusters, and web-based tools around individual themes, interests and projects. In most cases, these tools and resources are and were created to meet the specific needs of a particular community. In many cases, the funding and support for these critical initiatives is fragile and temporary, and directed in piecemeal fashion.
