Abstract: We review some of the scientific opportunities and technical challenges posed by the exploration of the large digital sky surveys, in the context of a Virtual Observatory (VO). The VO paradigm will profoundly change the way observational astronomy is done. Clustering analysis techniques can be used to discover samples of rare, unusual, or even previously unknown types of astronomical objects and phenomena. Exploration of the previously poorly probed portions of the observable parameter space are especially promising. We illustrate some of the possible types of studies with examples drawn from DPOSS; much more complex and interesting applications are forthcoming. Development of the new tools needed for an efficient exploration of these vast data sets requires a synergy between astronomy and information sciences, with great potential returns for both fields.
Librarians and user privacy in the digital age  [cached]

Abstract: Innovative, digital information programs have been launched involving libraries around the world. These programs permit people to satisfy their information needs regardless where they, the information resources they need or the information specialists whose assistance they need to utilize those resources, may be; or, for that matter, the time of day when those needs arise. They utilize the latest communication technologies, including Instant Messaging (IM). IM permits real-time, interactive consultation with the information professionals best able to deal with particular information needs. These programs are exemplary manifestations of knowledge management principles. Global, digital reference services combined with a growing body of machine readable information and high speed, readily accessible communication networks are bringing the concept of the virtual library, if not to complete realization, then surely within reach. However, in the US and in many parts of Europe surveillance laws and the primacy accorded intellectual property threaten to undermine the promise and efficacy of this emerging, global library, information and knowledge resource. This paper explores the potential and promise of the knowledge resource that digital information sources make possible, and the legal and social impediments that threaten the full realization of that promise.
School 2.0 and the Digital Blackboard: a mercantilization paradigm of the educational system through ICTs  [PDF]
José Luis Murillo García
Revista Electronica Interuniversitaria de Formación del Profesorado , 2010,
Abstract: We now live in a digital society, fostered and run by a global market, which in turn is managed by multinational corporations and large financial institutions that are creating a new role for education: the school, as an essential element of the economy due to its investments and its importance as a market place for multinationals, but most importantly due to its function in training of a new social class, the “prosumers”. The paradigm of these changes can be clearly seen in the “School 2.0” and its predecessor, the “Digital Balckboard” resources in Aragón (Spain).
Evaluating complex digital resources  [cached]

Research in Learning Technology , 2003, DOI: 10.3402/rlt.v11i1.11263
Abstract: Squires (1999) discussed the gap between HCI (Human Computer Interaction) and the educational computing communities in their very different approaches to evaluating educational software. This paper revisits that issue in the context of evaluating digital resources, focusing on two approaches to evaluation: an HCI and an educational perspective. Squires and Preece's HCI evaluation model is a predictive model - it helps teachers decide whether or not to use educational software - whilst our own concern is in evaluating the use of learning technologies. It is suggested that in part the different approaches of the two communities relate to the different focus that each takes: in HCI the focus is typically on development and hence usability, whilst in education the concern is with the learner and teacher use.
The Value Creation Strategies and Core Resources of the Companies in the Digital Archives Industry  [PDF]

Journal of Library and Information Studies , 2012,
Abstract: The digital archives industry that adds value to digitized cultural assets is of high interest today. The current study adopted a value creation perspective to examine and compare two case companies’ business strategies and core resources upon which value is created. Case A represented a value adding approach, in which the company’s business activities are concentrated on the upstream and downstream authorization of the digital objects. Case B represented a design and application approach, in which profits were generated from the creative use of cultural elements extracted from digital archives in original product design. The core resources of the two cases varied accordingly. Case A drew on its reputation, ownership of use rights, management capabilities, relation networks, and operational capabilities, while Case B drew on resources including reputation, management capabilities, and expertise in product design and commercialization.

Concierge: Personal database software for managing digital research resources  [PDF]
Hiroyuki Sakai,Toshihiro Aoyama,Kazutsuna Yamaji,Shiro Usui
Frontiers in Neuroinformatics , 2007, DOI: 10.3389/neuro.11.005.2007
Abstract: This article introduces a desktop application, named Concierge, for managing personal digital research resources. Using simple operations, it enables storage of various types of files and indexes them based on content descriptions. A key feature of the software is a high level of extensibility. By installing optional plug-ins, users can customize and extend the usability of the software based on their needs. In this paper, we also introduce a few optional plug-ins: literature management, electronic laboratory notebook, and XooNlps client plug-ins. XooNIps is a content management system developed to share digital research resources among neuroscience communities. It has been adopted as the standard database system in Japanese neuroinformatics projects. Concierge, therefore, offers comprehensive support from management of personal digital research resources to their sharing in open-access neuroinformatics databases such as XooNIps. This interaction between personal and open-access neuroinformatics databases is expected to enhance the dissemination of digital research resources. Concierge is developed as an open source project; Mac OS X and Windows XP versions have been released at the official site (http://concierge.sourceforge.jp ).
