This is one of a short series that I've adapted from short presentations, purely for the purposes of being able to print the hand-outs, for a number of events that I've attended recently.
This one is about our fledgling work on enabling queries on the ALISS Engine, from across the web

  • ALISS supports a similar process. The ALISS engine collects short descriptions and links to useful resources, either by people submitting things, or by getting them electronically from other systems in various ways. Once a resource is in the ALISS index, people with accounts can add keywords or more information, like sticking a post-it note on. We call that curation, meaning collecting information and labelling it in ways that make it more useful and easier to find. This means devolving control over content, which is not only in line with the ethic of self management but also more sustainable as it means no resources going to centralised administration. But, it’s not a free-for-all. All content is moderated, and you can filter it so you only get information from sources you trust. ALISS data can be published and searched by any other computer systems- the data is open and accessible across the web.
  • Once a resource is added to ALISS, it is added to the index. All additional curations are then combined in that the index. It means that, for example, if someone sees a resource as being useful for a different group, they can tag it and it will then show up in searches using that tag.
  • This means useful resources which might be scattered across lots of different systems, or not online at all, can now be indexed in one place which we call the ALISS Engine. The Engine can then be accessed by any system across the web. So it can feed other web sites, practice systems, libraries, advice centres, right across Scotland.

  • 2. intro
    • We’re often asked
      • “ how will the data that you can get from ALISS be quality-assured?”
    • People can be quite anxious about this. We’ve designed things so the load can be shared across organisations, so that differing views can be accommodated, so that the way the ALISS community quality-assures material is ‘extensible’.
  • 3. In the ALISS engine, the 3 key information-service tasks are devolved ALISS engine collect it sort it publish it
  • 4. Once a resource is in the ALISS Engine, people with accounts can add keywords or more information, like sticking a post-it note on. We call that ‘curation’, meaning collecting information and labelling it in ways that make it more useful and easier to find.
  • 5. Location: indexed Subsequent curation Resource: original spotter tags Free text description: indexed ‘ flag’ – could be alert Time-stamp Resource: original curation Here is a curation in the Engine, ‘unpacked’ Click on the title to go to the original resource
  • 6. Indexing All curations are combined with original resources in the index. So if someone sees a resource as being useful for a different group, they can tag it and it will then show up in searches using that tag. Resource Asbestos Group Curation Curation Curation Curation Curation Curation
  • 7. Searches Searches on the Engine will use the combined index entry to make the resource more findable, or a search can be limited to resources curated by a particular group or groups. Asbestos Group Search glasgow, support group Search Only ‘Links’ Practices collections asbestos
  • 8. A key concept here is the ‘ALISS account’, which identifies different collections of ALISS resources. These accounts can be linked together in a variety of ways, across organisations or parts of the same one.
  • 9. ALISS engine … managed (curated) info flows out to intermediary information services So a wide variety of info can be contributed to the Engine, and… Centre
