Museum and Creative Industries Toolkit - Northern Ireland Museums Council Museums and Creative Industries Toolkit Museums and creative businesses are increasingly working together in Northern Ireland today, as the creative industries grow and museums get more ambitious. Museums are commissioning artists and makers to help reinterpret their collection and using digital media developers to produce audio guides and apps. Meanwhile, creative businesses are buying services from museums: film companies are using museums as locations and designers are drawing on museum collections for inspiration. Senior Lecturer in Literature, Technology and Publishing Introduction Scholarly publishing is totally broken.

What repositories do: The OAIS model (Another post in an ongoing series on repositories.) In my previous post, I mentioned the OAIS reference model as an influential framework for thinking about and planning repositories intended for long-term preservation. If you’re familiar with some of the literature or marketing for digital repositories, you may well have seen OAIS mentioned, or seen a particular system marketed as “OAIS compliant”. You may have also noticed remarks that it’s not always clear in practice what OAIS compliance means. The JISC Standards Catalogue notes “The [OAIS] documentation is quite long and complex and this may prove to be a barrier to smaller repositories or archives.” A common impression I’ve heard of OAIS is that it’s a nice idea that one should really try to pay more attention to, but complex enough that one will have to wait for some less busy time to think about it.
