Biblioteca Vasconcelos in Mexico City is gigantic. The gorgeous structure, which covers 38,000 square meters (that's over 400,000 square feet), holds more than 470,000 books. Designed by Alberto Kalach, the "megalibrary" features transparent walls, hive-like bookshelves, and mismatched floors. Visitors can take in a massive white whale skeleton covered in graphite rings by artist Gabriel Orozco. Download EnterMedia 8 - EnterMedia Feeling Brave?

Thankful Archivist: 2011 « NewArchivist So here we are, once again ready to do what has become a holiday tradition here at NewArchivist, the celebration of that which makes the cockles of my archivist heart glow warm and fuzzy (confession: I just wanted to write “cockles”). Archival Grassroots I have written more than once on what an awesome group of archivists are on web 2.0, but man, there are a lot of awesome archivists on web 2.0 right now. A case in point: Kate Theimer suggested that archivists should band together and provide Spontaneous Scholarships for folks who needed some assistance attending the 2011 SAA conference. Well, we banded together and provided money to help 26 archivists engage in the profession, many of the donations coming from people on Facebook or Twitter.
Institutional Repositories Institutional Repositories (IRs) can be directly loaded into EBSCO Discovery Serviceso that they can be fully searched alongside all other EDS resources/content. Loading Institutional Repositories EBSCO supports harvesting institutional repositories via Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) or via File Transfer Protocol (FTP).

Twittervane: Crowdsourcing selection We’re excited to announce development of a new tool to automate the selection of websites for archiving: the Twittervane. At the moment, our selection process is manual, dependent upon internal subject specialists or external experts to contact us and nominate websites for archiving in the UK Web Archive. We benefit from their expertise and wouldn’t be without it, but we recognise that this manual selection process can sometimes be time consuming for frequent selectors. It’s also inevitably subjective, reflecting the interests of a relatively small number of selectors.
Eprints: software para repositorios "Our repository user requirements told us that we needed to go beyond the simple customisation of EPrints. We tendered for development work and found there was nowhere better than EPrints Services to do the job. They've helped us understand the strengths of EPrints and are delivering functionality that matches our needs." University of Lincoln How do you improve the world's first and most powerful repository software? Keep innovating. Institutional repository software comparison The Guidelines to compare Institutional Repository Software have been published as part of UNESCO’s Open Access Strategy. The publication compares the features of the major platforms and is intended to help libraries focus on which features will help facilitate the success of their repository. Institutional Repositories (IRs) were first developed as an online solution for collecting, preserving, and disseminating the scholarship of universities, colleges, and other research institutions. Since 2000, a number of repository platforms have been developed, each with their own set of benefits and technical criteria. All of these put libraries exploring IRs for the first time in an enviable position. The products have richer feature sets, and all the major platforms are available as a hosted service, which arguably has a lower total cost of ownership and is less time-consuming than running an IR locally.
How can your research have more impact? Five key principles and practical tips for effective knowledge exchange. Generating new knowledge is a relatively straightforward concept compared with the more unknown territory of getting knowledge to those that might need it. To ensure knowledge is useful, relationships must be built: two-way, long-term, trusting relationships between researchers and the people who need the new knowledge we are generating. Mark Reed and Anna Evely share their top five principles for effective knowledge exchange. Name an impact from research that hasn’t involved knowledge exchange. If like us, you can’t think of one, then it follows that if we want to have an impact, we have to become great at knowledge exchange. But what does effective knowledge exchange look like, and how can we get good at it?

Wayback usage in the Danish webarchive - NetarchiveSuite - SBForge Skip to end of metadataGo to start of metadata Gliffy Zoom The Danish Webarchive implementation of wayback has the following primary components. Handle System - Wikipedia As with handles used elsewhere in computing, Handle System handles are opaque, and encode no information about the underlying resource, being bound only to metadata regarding the resource. Consequently, the handles are not rendered invalid by changes to the metadata. The system was developed by Bob Kahn at the Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI). The original work was funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) between 1992 and 1996, as part a wider framework for distributed digital object services, and was thus contemporaneous with the early deployment of the World Wide Web, with similar goals. The Handle System was first implemented in autumn 1994, and was administered and operated by CNRI until December 2015, when a new "multi-primary administrator" (MPA) mode of operation was introduced.
This is the study of the interaction of people, media and machines within the digital environment. It emerges from the complex inter-relationships between computers and networks, humans, human society and the media – the way that almost every aspect of our culture (including the sciences, arts, civic life, entertainment, fiscal, economic and business sectors) is increasingly underpinned by digital networks. Understanding this ecology is the new literacy of the 21st century.
