Service based on ATHENS Link to Internet 2 Not sure how committee will proceedChris Rusbridge: JISC Committee for Electronic Information 27/09/12 6
  • DNER Distributed National Electronic Resource ... to make sense of burgeoning heterogeneous information resources ... a national scale digital library project ... emphasising integration ... needing design, infrastructure, development, research, and content. Model based on portals, services and data providers.Chris Rusbridge: JISC Committee for Electronic Information 27/09/12 7
  • DNER development Major Circular November 99, to close January 2000 Projects to develop the DNER • build and connect the infrastructure • experiment with different types of portals • experiment with different services • incorporate more types of content. Evaluation and feedbackChris Rusbridge: JISC Committee for Electronic Information 27/09/12 8

  • International JISC/NSF programme • Part of NSF International Digital Libraries Initiative • 6 projects • £500,000 per year for 3 years Opportunistic! High profile, popular with the paymasters Major benefits in improving communicationChris Rusbridge: JISC Committee for Electronic Information 27/09/12 12
  • Future international? No specific budget, although seeking a small general international budget • specific ideas would help Neutral stance: needs to benefit JISC, to justify cost (including establishment) Earliest spend would be 2001 • more likely 2001/2002Chris Rusbridge: JISC Committee for Electronic Information 27/09/12 13
  • Conditions for inter- programme success Mutual advantage and willingness to share the load Politics and timing: convergence Resources: significantly greater overhead Flexibility: need to adapt hallowed practice to accommodate TrustChris Rusbridge: JISC Committee for Electronic Information 27/09/12 14
  • Suggestion Add to new circulars • “Proposers are invited to suggest optional additional modules to their proposal, to be performed by international partners,and funded by non-[local] funding sources. Viable proposals of this type will be viewed favourably.” Allows separability of funding decisions but puts the onus on the project’s international partners to organise.Chris Rusbridge: JISC Committee for Electronic Information 27/09/12 15
