Image Management in Bio- and Environmental Sciences: New Directions

a UKeiG and IAALD Course

to be held at

The John Rylands University Library, University of Manchester
Thursday, 31st May, 2007, 9.30 - 16.30

Workshop Outline
The bio- and environmental sciences cover a broad spectrum from taxonomy to
bioinformatics, farming to climate change, with a correspondingly wide range
of information resources ranging from historic manuscripts to genomic
databanks. Images form an important component of all these and achieving
holistic management of diverse resources to allow easy correlation of their
information content is challenging, especially for small information units
and 'one-man-bands'. Developing technologies offer new opportunities but can
themselves produce new demands in devising effective strategies for their
use. This workshop aims to share experiences and float ideas in areas where
there are as yet no 'right answers'!

The workshop will comprise a mix of presentations and group discussion, with
demonstration of some examples of good practice. Topics are expected to
range over:

* Locating sources: what to look for and where to look
* Digital libraries and repositories: cross searching effectively
* Embedded images: searching within documents
* Metadata content and ontologies: requirements for effective retrieval
* Rights issues and commercial factors
* Storage and preservation: short- and long-term issues
* Using images in teaching and learning: the role of the information
specialist
* Taxonomic trails: specimen collection to DNA 
* Image Bioinformatics: developing new tools
* The impact of web 2.0 technologies: salvation or hype?

The workshop is presented in association with the new UK/Ireland chapter of
IAALD (International Association of Agricultural Information Specialists),
provisionally known as FIBS - Focus on Information in the Bio- and
environmental Sciences.

Who Should Attend
Anyone whose work involves the use of images in this subject area will
benefit from this meeting, from any sector - university, college,
government, NHS, charity, learned society, commercial etc. We hope for a
good mix as we all have much to learn from each other!

Presenters
A panel of speakers is being arranged, chaired by Roger Mills, Bio- and
Environmental Sciences Librarian, Oxford University Library Services. Roger
is currently President of EBHL (European Botanical and Horticultural
Libraries) and co-ordinator of IUFRO (International Union of Forest Research
Organisations) Unit 6.03.00 Information Services and Knowledge Organisation.
He is co-author of The New Walford: Volume 1: Science Technology and
Medicine, Facet, 2005, as subject specialist for Agriculture, Forestry,
Fisheries and Food.  

Further details of the speakers and programme will be announced on
http://www.ukeig.org.uk/training/  as available.
