Hanny van Arkel has been classifying galaxies from pictures taking my deep-space telescopes and came across an odd glowing object glowing next to a galaxy. Later named hanny’s Voorwerp, Hanny’s Thing.
Issues here: Exhibition as an item type could be specified further; what to do with collective creators; how to do relations amongst items; difference between exhibition catalogue and artists book; if there is catalogue then it should show up in exhibition record
For architecture: built; unbuilt; demolished; difference between architect and designer; more detail than “building” ie “function” AAT single built works by design: energy efficient; experimental; concept house; case study house; portable; temporary; etc. Citation should be date range? Include more location details? Also specify “architect”? “in press” is unsuitable

The importance of looking after research data______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Research councils and fundersRCUK Common Principles on Data Policy:“The need for a statement on how underlying research material can be accessed iscurrently in place for some, but not all Research Councils. (…) [W]e are extending thispolicy to all Research Councils.”Quality of researchThe availability of research data in the public domain allows testing and validation and,hence, ensures and solidifies the quality of research.Democratising science and the research processProjects such as GalaxyZoo (classification of images of galaxies taken by deep-spacetelescopes), Old Weather (transcription of Royal Navy ship logs) and Patients Participate(production of lay summaries for PubMed Central papers)

Things that could be better______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ STORAGE“I can’t store my material here because Idont (…) want to have it on the one harddrive on the computer I work at in the officethat only works if there’s an accessible server.” “We want to put a lot of process material onthe website (…). What would be nice would be INFORMATsomewhere between the way we are usingDropbox and the way that we use a website IONso that we can (…) move stuff into a public RESOURCfolder and for that folder to be accessible (…).”“…how to archive digital material (…) that’s something I don’t really have a strong handleon.” ES“We have stacks of flip chart paper with all the different ideas from all the different things,we have email stacks, we have stacks of evidence in bags that people brought, we haveabout 8 hours of video recording that we are working on gradually.”
