  • But all in different places and different formatsA fragmeneted experienceSome services deal with this but don’t cover all content or meet all use cases
  • Implementing the visionWe have until 2012 to have a go at realising the visionThe vision is pleasantly baggy so we can tailor and adjust our approach as we find out more about the issues and as we learn from developments elsewhereShort iterative bursts of activity to allow us to constantly correct and adjust our approach as we goBe pragmatic! Do something useful!
  • Not just heJISC funding focused on he but if want to make it useful for researchers and avoid creating a giant silo – need to think broader to include other sectors and nations
  • Describe servicesNot all jisc – enabling is used specificallyEcosystem used carefully too as some of these services will feed off each other – I started to draw it but it got too complicated and I started to disagree with myself and that’s not a good sign
  • Your content might want to be involvedMake it more visible get it enriched by linking to other relevant contentNew ways of engaging with your contentYou might want to see advice and guidance on best practice or look out for new opportunities to exploit your content

    • 7. What do we mean by services?
      Are you just talking about mashups?
    • 8. Yes. But no. But yes....

    • 9. Mashups aren’t just experimental or playing...

    • 10. Interesting new juxtapositions and interfaces

    • 11. Enabling an ecosystem of services
      For example:
      better search
      mashups and visualisations
      aggregation and normalisation of metadata
      enrichment of metadata
      collection management
      shared cataloguing
      in depth resources exploring specific topics

    • 13. We don’t have answers yet, but...
      We have ideas over metadata approach http://rdtfmetadata.jiscpress.org/
      We have funded experiments with open reusable data from libraries, museums and archives – a lot of these projects are evaluating a linked data approach
      http://www.jisc.ac.uk/whatwedo/programmes/inf11/infrastructureforresourcediscovery.aspx
      And...
      We'll make advice and guidance on this available
      We'll devote effort to aggregating content and to building services that use content from a range of places in innovative ways
