E-Ris (E-Resources for Industry Studies)
The project I intend to develop for the Information Access Seminar is a continuation of the database project I started in INFO 257: e-RIS (e-Resources for Industry Studies). In the database course, I developed the database structure and a simple PHP-enabled website for accessing and viewing tables as well as executing queries and filtering results. The second phase of the project will be two-part: (1) Improving usability for research team's ability to add and edit records to database; (2) Migrating database to public website with search functionality and user feedback enabled.
Evolving Roles of Subject and Institutional Repositories (Clifford Lynch)
In this discussion, I'll reflect on the evolving roles and relationships between subject, or disciplinary, repositories on one hand and institutional repositories on the other. This is based in part on a talk I gave in late January at the conference on Subject Repositories in Economics hosted at the British Library.
