Six Sites Short

  1. 1. Key IT technologies for librarians in SIX SITES (short version) Jeroen Seeverens
  2. 2. 1. http://www.websurg.com
  3. 3. 1. webSurg.com <ul><li>Access : http://websurg.com </li></ul>
  4. 4. 1. webSurg.com <ul><li>Description : webSurg.com is a portal and community site for surgeons. It provides access to a vast and growing amount of specialized content, including but not limited to surgical intervention videos, lectures, expert views, an event calendar and a journal directory. </li></ul>
  5. 5. 1. webSurg.com <ul><li>Trend : The Internet has become the most important means of publishing and sharing of heterogeneous content. It allows for collaboration, co-creation and sharing of content of all sorts. And it seems it has finally grown up. </li></ul><ul><li>webSurg.com is a great example of a social community, a digital subject library and a multimedia repository united in an integrated portal. </li></ul>
  6. 6. 2. http://www.pixlr.com
  7. 7. 2. Pixlr.com Access : http:// www.pixlr.com / editor
  8. 8. 2. Pixlr.com <ul><li>Description : Pixlr.com is an online image-editing tool with features found in professional photo-editing software like Adobe Photoshop. Users do not need to install any software as Pixlr.com runs in any browser that supports Flash. </li></ul>
  9. 9. 2. Pixlr.com <ul><li>Trend : Applications are moving to the web. Now it’s possible to edit documents (Google Docs), check mail (webmail), manage citations (Zotero), edit images (pixlr.com) and even place phone calls (webphone.xs4all.nl) without ever leaving the browser. Even desktop applications are becoming portable as they can be carried around on a USB stick (portableapps.com). This eliminates the need to provide complete (and expensive) managed desktops to students and employees. </li></ul>
  10. 10. 3. http://www.dial2Do.com
  11. 11. 3. Dial2Do <ul><li>Access : http://www.dial2do.com </li></ul>
  12. 12. 3. Dial2Do <ul><li>Description : Dial2Do is a voice-gateway to services on the web. You can track your expenses, access your mailbox or turn out the lights in your automated home by calling Dail2Do and say what has to be done. The system takes care of it and within seconds your latest pair of shoes turns up in your Expenser account, your sister gets her birthday email and … damn ... it’s all dark in here. </li></ul>
  13. 13. 3. Dial2Do <ul><li>Trend : The way we access services and data is changing rapidly. Mobile devices take the Internet to wherever the user goes. Context, user, location and semantic-aware applications take advantage of this and enable providers to adapt their services to the specific situation a users find themselves in. Alternative input (and output) methods like speech recognition and touch interfaces leverage an even more intuitive and seamless user experience. </li></ul>
  14. 14. 4. http://wave.google.com
  15. 15. 4. Google Wave Access : http://wave.google.com/
  16. 16. 4. Google Wave <ul><li>Description : Although still in bèta, Google Wave has - combined with Gmail, Google Docs and Google Voice - the potential to become a truly unified communication and collaboration platform. It allows users to participate in waves, which are communication threads that combine features of mail, chat boxes, discussion forums, document sharing and mashups. </li></ul>
  17. 17. 4. Google Wave <ul><li>Trend : Once the killer app of the Internet, email has set high standards for online communication. Services like cloud mail, Live Messenger, Twitter and now Google Wave as well take us further down the path to place, device, format and time independent communication and data sharing. </li></ul>
  18. 18. 5. http://aws.amazon.com
  19. 19. 5. Amazon Web Services Access : http://aws.amazon.com
  20. 20. 5. Amazon Web Services <ul><li>Description : Amazon Web Services has taken cloud computing to the next level. It enables us to allocate resources in ‘the cloud’ on which to host our servers, store our data and process our payments. All web services are billed on a pay-per-use basis. </li></ul><ul><li>The Mechanical Turk service even renders us capable to hire work forces at transaction level (i.e. pay per scanned page, sorted list, reviewed record or clicked item). </li></ul>
  21. 21. 5. Amazon Web Services <ul><li>Trend : More and more services, applications and even infrastructural IT systems are being migrated to the cloud (i.e. somewhere connected to the Internet and entirely managed by a third party). </li></ul><ul><li>Customers only pay for resources they actually use and are able to use them without investing in hardware, software or even knowledge needed to manage the underlying infrastructure. If they need more of them, cloud services and resources scale up easily . </li></ul>
  22. 22. 6. http://openid.net/
  23. 23. 6. OpenID.net <ul><li>Access : http://openid.net </li></ul>
  24. 24. 6. OpenID.net <ul><li>Description : OpenID provides an open platform enabling users to subscribe to web services using credentials managed by an identity provider they trust. If the service supports it, OpenID provides a Single Sign On mechanism as well. </li></ul>
  25. 25. 6. OpenID.net <ul><li>Trend : As systems and applications tend to become more distributed in nature, the need of a distributed identity and access management infrastructure emerges. It is the glue that holds the web’s service portfolio together. </li></ul><ul><li>OpenID.net provides such an infrastructure and is adopted by Google, Microsoft and others. </li></ul>
  26. 26. Wrap up <ul><li>Content moves to the web </li></ul><ul><li>Applications move to the web </li></ul><ul><li>Communication moves to the web </li></ul><ul><li>Infrastructure moves to the web </li></ul><ul><li>Identity management moves to the web </li></ul><ul><li>And the web moves anything, anywhere </li></ul>
  27. 27. Conclusion <ul><li>Everything needed to build a truly integrated digital library service providing a rich user experience and adding significant value to research and education is already present on the web. </li></ul><ul><li>So let’s move </li></ul><ul><li>deeper into the web </li></ul>
