Collaborative Collecting in Scotland

Current state of play: Conspectus, CATRIONA, RCO, CAIRNS, SCONE, SEED, CC-Interop, HaIRST - but mainly SPEIR

Additional comment l.jpg
Additional Comment

  • Scope of talk:

    • Collaborative collecting

    • Mechanisms to support and facilitate

    • Collection, Collection Strength metadata

    • Use of this in collaborative collecting and user navigation and landscaping

  • Acronyms:

    • A necessary evil

    • Just labels for projects, groups

    • Brief descriptions as we go

    • URL at end for more information


Scottish cc timeline l.jpg
Scottish CC Timeline…

  • 1980s Conspectus exercise

  • 1991 - : BUBL, BUBL Subject Tree

  • 1994 CATRIONA Model:

    • “It is likely that internet opacs will be categorised according to their subject strengths and that users will be able to search … for records of other opacs strong on a particular subject category”

  • 1995 – RCO – Conspectus-based web service – guiding users to distributed subject collections – individual web and telnet catalogues if available


Scottish cc timeline4 l.jpg
Scottish CC Timeline…

  • 1999 – CAIRNS – Z39.50 – RCO and dynamic landscaping –- cross-searching distributed subject collection landscapes

  • 2000/02 – SCONE and SEED – SCONE collections service - Public Libraries - Conspectus alternatives – embryonic SCAMP staff collections portal

  • 2002/2004 CC-Interop (Riding Clone, Landscaping beyond Scotland, SCAMP development)


Slide5 l.jpg

Scottish CC Timeline…

  • 2002/05 – HaIRST (OAI, SCAMP, collaborative collecting)

  • 2003/04 – SPEIR – Draws the threads together within a pilot co-operative infrastructure; Incorporates a collaborative Scottish Distributed Digital Library; Recognises the key role of collection level description in collaborative collection management, resource discovery, portal management


What is speir l.jpg
What is SPEIR?

  • Some answers:

    • Scottish Portals for Education, Information, and Research

    • Scots for ‘to ask’ or ‘to enquire’

    • Funded by the Scottish Library and Information Council as an adjunct to the Scottish Cultural Portal Pilot; co-operative infrastructure to support this and other portals

    • Backed by key players in Scotland through the Confederation of Scottish Mini-Cooperatives (COSMIC)


Speir bits l.jpg
SPEIR ‘bits’

  • Build on CAIRNS, SCONE, SCAMP, dynamic landscaping; HaIRST integration with CAIRNS

  • Bring in Public Libraries, FE, Cultural ‘Players’

  • Central support services for distributed portals – particularly Scottish Cultural Portal but aim is generic support (GDL, NLS also one key here)

  • Scottish Distributed Digital Library:

    • Collaborative cataloguing through Connexion

    • Collaborative collecting through SCAMP

    • CAIRNS, SCONE navigation


Speir bits8 l.jpg
SPEIR ‘bits’

  • Dynamic landscaping of various kinds – e.g. for different users, different badging

  • Terminologies pilot requirements

  • CoSMiC dimensions (groups)

  • Interoperability Focus for Scotland

  • Identification of digital and non-digital collections relevant to the Cultural Portal and SCONE

  • Pilot for a more developed form of the current Scottish Co-operative Infrastructure

Why?

  • Users increasingly use and need distributed resources and finding tools, so co-operation is now essential as well as desirable

  • Distributed networked collections need collaborative management

  • Coherent distributed virtual ‘libraries’ won’t just happen – we must co-operate to manage retrieval and user environments

  • Institutional and other boundaries are becoming a barrier to providing what users need
