JISC News - OpenDOAR
OpenDOAR is pleased to present a trial search service for the full-text of
material held in open access repositories listed in the Directory. This has
been made possible through the recent launch by Google of its Custom Search
Engine, which allows OpenDOAR to define a search service based on the
Directory holdings.  Users of this service can search through the world's
repositories of freely available research information, with the assurance
that each of these repositories has been assessed by OpenDOAR staff. This
quality controlled approach will minimise (but not eliminate!) spurious or
junk results, and lead more directly to useful and relevant information.

What is VoIP? (TechWatch)
The latest TechWatch report takes a look at the technologies behind Voice
over IP (VoIP) and the new applications that it can support. At the moment
the potential for very low-cost or free voice calls is driving the use of
the technology, but in the long-term VoIP is more significant than just free
phone calls - it represents a major change in telecommunications. The fact
that VoIP transmits voice as digitised packets over the Internet means that
it has the potential to converge with other digital technologies, which in
turn will result in new services and applications becoming available. This
TechWatch report examines some of the issues around VoIP as well as looking
at the potential for future use within education.

Open Source Focus
Join in the Open Source debate
If you're interested in the issues relating to use of Open Source software
in education, you can join in a number of live webcasts with the authors of
recent articles on the subject.
A range of articles on Open Source software appear in the October/November
2006 issue of Innovate, and webcasts have been set up to enable readers to
discuss issues with their authors.
