The library forms part of a project being developed by FAPESP (Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo) in collaboration with BIREME (Centro Latinoamericano y del Caribe de Información en Ciencias de la Salud).
The FAPESP/BIREME project envisages developing a common methodology for preparing, storing, disseminating and evaluating scientific literature in electronic form.

http://www.microsoft.com/interop/ “ In order to help catalyze and facilitate the growth of advanced CI, a critical component is the adoption of open access policy for data, publications and software.” NSF Advisory Committee on Cyberinfrastructure (ACCI)
Microsoft Interoperability Principles
Open Connections to Microsoft Products
Support for Standards
Engagement with Open Source community
What does this mean? You go to a great web site It supports OpenID No need to create/manage yet another account You can now use Live ID to authenticate
Great for interoperability
Many sites support OpenID-based authentication
Other major ID providers are working on v2.0 of the protocol (e.g. Yahoo, Google)
No need to manage account-related information on multiple sites
Name, email, web site, interests, etc.
You control which sites are allowed to access your profile information and/or authenticate
Insert Creative Commons licenses from any Office 2007 application Incorporate license information in the OOXML so that the license can be read even without Office installed Integration with the Creative Commons Web API so that new licenses can be created
Data Acquisition and Modeling
Data capture from source, cleaning, storage, etc.
SQL Server, SSIS, Windows WF
Allow researchers to work together, share context, facilitate interactions
SharePoint Server, One Note 2007 (shared)
Data Analysis, Modeling, and Visualization
Mining techniques (OLAP, cubes) and visual analytics

Model for semantically representing eChemistry research work
Repository to store generated models
Models will be generated and consumed by tools used by chemistry researchers (e.g. PubChem, eCrystals, TableSheer, Excel, Word)

Preservation of Office Documents based on OpenXML
Deliver converters for MS Office binary formats
Funded open source project for ODF to/from OpenXML converter
Deliver Preservation Toolkit
PLANETS Tools and methods for sustainable long-term preservation of digital objects
A Windows OS for the Cloud
Platform for developing and hosting Cloud applications
Built to take advantage of datacenters
Exposes services that hosted applications can leverage
Live Mesh, Desktop-in-the-cloud, files in the cloud
Mostly consumer-oriented services
Developer APIs for building consumer-oriented services and applications in the Cloud
Workflow, Identity and authentication, etc.
Can be integrated by business applications
A collaboration space in the Cloud
Upload documents, invite people to join the workspace, share, collaborate on documents
More great features coming soon
Office Web applications announced at PDC08
Expect scientific research environments will follow similar trends to the commercial sector
Leverage computing and data storage in the cloud
Scientists already experimenting with services
For many of the same reasons
Siloed research teams, no resource sharing across labs
High storage costs
Low resource utilization
High costs of reliably keeping machines up-to-date
Little support for developers, system operators
RIC VRE VISION VIRTUAL RESEARCH ENVIRONMENT
Online tools and services to enhance research process .
Facilitate collaboration among researchers .
Provide a more effective means to work together .
Available as a service with minimal barrier to entry…
Most of the technology comprising a VRE is evolutionary .
It is the convergence of these technologies that is unique …
CONTENT MANAGEMENT Tools to organize, manage and control digital content. Typical features include automated templates, organization, versioning, workflow management, document management, and content virtualization. KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT Tools for individuals and teams to distribute and share knowledge. Tools, such as blogs and wikis for more unstructured, self-governing approach to knowledge transfer, and the capture, and creation of knowledge through the development of new forms of community (rating, ranking, etc). SOCIAL NETWORKING Individuals or teams can express identify and identify collaborators. Primary features are profile pages, groups, self expression, content creation tools, content sharing, blogs and forums, recommendations and tagging. ONLINE COLLABORATION Tools that facilitate working together to achieve a common goal. Enable individuals to find each other and the information they need, communicate, and work together to achieve a common goal. Core elements are messaging, groupware, real-time collaboration and communication.

No need to build your own infrastructure or maintain/manage servers
Moving forward, even research services could move to the Cloud
Formats or “well-known” representations of data/information
Pervasive access protocols are key (e.g. HTTP)
Data/information is uniquely identified (e.g. URIs)
Links/associations between data/information
Data/information is inter-connected through machine-interpretable information (e.g. paper X is about star Y )
Social networks are a special case of ‘data meshes’
