Preserving web resources – new advisory handbook from JISC

In Evidence-Based Librarianship, Information industry, Knowledge Management on December 12, 2008 by Alan Lovell Tagged: , , , , , ,

Been a bit of a busy week in office land. Just time though to give you a little pointer to what might be an interesting and up-to-date little handbook to some of you. It’s from the Joint Information Systems Committee, more commonly known as JISC, and it “offers a wealth of tips and information for web managers, data professionals and those making decisions concerning the long-term preservation of online resources“; so there you go. JISC assures me that It “provides solutions” and gives “illustrative case studies”.

JISC also do regular podcasts, including one entitled “Library spaces for the ‘Google Generation” – how hip are they at JISC?

In case you’re wondering who are these hip, active JISC people, it’s all rather British. They exist to “support education and research by promoting innovation in new technologies and by the central support of ICT services” and are funded by, amongst others, the Higher Education Funding Council for England, the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, the Department for Employment and Learning, the Scottish Funding Council, and the Department for Children, Education, Lifelong Learning and Skills.

Don’t say you never learn anything from me.
