Good Morning MCG'ers,

 

I emailed the list recently about the work of the Resource Discovery
Task Force in encouraging more active use of museum, library and archive
content in teaching and research in HE/FE. The coordinators of this
programme (which is supported by JISC) have announced  a one-day
workshop on the subject, which will take place in Manchester on the 18th
April. Details of the event and how to register are provided in the
email below:

 

How can we gain bigger audiences for our scholarly and cultural
resources and enhance services for researchers, teachers and learners? 

 

In 2010, the JISC and RLUK Resource Discovery Taskforce (RDTF),
involving national stakeholders from libraries, archives and museums,
set out a vision for making the most of UK scholarly and cultural
resources.  JISC and their RDTF partners have now committed to a
programme of activity to help fulfil the vision - building critical mass
through opening up data, exploring and demonstrating what open data
makes possible, and actively sharing learning points with the wider
community.

 

The 'Opening Data - Opening Doors' event marks the starting point of
this journey.  

 

Chaired by Professor David Baker, Deputy Chair of the JISC Board, on
behalf of the JISC and RLUK Resource Discovery Task Force

 

*         Hear from services that are opening up their data including
what's happening in the new RDTF projects that have just been
commissioned

*         Help to shape the messages, advice and support offered during
the 2011 programme and beyond

*         Help to develop practical and engaging approaches to
exploiting our data

 

Venue: Malmaison Manchester, Piccadilly, Manchester, M1 1LZ

Date: Monday 18th April 2011, 10.00am to 4.00pm

 

Who should attend? Managers, practitioners, developers and advocates
from libraries, archives, museums, associated publishers and interested
organisations who want early involvement in clarifying, expanding and
challenging the realities of exposing, sharing and exploiting the
resource description data held by our institutions.
