New challenges for  digital  scholarship and digital  curation  in the era of   ubiquitous computing
In the  ancient  world of the 20 th Century Computers were big! People   went to computers People used computers for really dumb tasks such as... Browsing the  web Word processing Reading email
 
 
a " web of data " that enables  machines  to understand the meaning of information on the World Wide Web
Rate of production much greater than capacity to store conserve curate Digital assets
What are digital assets? How does  the computer 'see' them?

Digital scholarship Isn't it just scholarship?
The Social Network The social academic
 
 
Not particularly linked to scholarship
Social networking and semantic web e.g. for researchers Crowdsourced curation of research papers
 
The more of your own work you put in the more valuable  the system becomes  to others Which means The more valuable  it is to you

Social  curation    of digital   objects    to support research    is still in  its infancy Research   libraries    should   plan  for   supporting    the social    aspects of    digital    scholarship Expect  it to  expand Think open, think linked....

Linked data Using the Web to  connect related  data Extends http  and URIs Data can be read automatically by computers Data fm different  sources can be  connected &  queried
Linked open data Semantic web: a " web of data " that enables  machines  to understand the of information on the World Wide Web New insights for researchers by analysing  linked open  data All researchers an be Hans Roslings

The big challenge: secret science The output of scientific research that is only published in ways that are only accessible to some people, or that is locked up in the newly  altered form of patents that are designed to withhold disclosure and  lengthen monopoly privileges.
The big challenge: secret science A widespread belief in  benefits of secrecy, and  entrenched processes to  foster it, the potential of  digital scholarship and  digital curation will not be  realised. Free & Open  Educational Resources Open Access Licenses Free & Open Source Software
Scarcity Abundance The big challenge:  scarcity mentality Proprietary access Open access The scarcity is entirely artificially maintained
Community not technology will solve this challenge: technology  must make communities  more  efficient
