Information Management

Courses tagged with "Information Management"

Workshop Scope- this workshop was given pre-IAMSLIC Conference, Mar del Plata Argentina October, 2010 - Linda Pikula, NOAA

Participants will learn how to prepare strong grant proposals. Elements of general proposal writing will be discussed:  mission, purpose, budgets, partnerships, timelines, the value of pilot projects, possible sources of funding, consideration of continuity of project through permanent funding.  A bibliography of resources is provided.  Examples of weak proposals will be critiqued.

Libraries traditionally have formed a preservation safety net for materials that will be transmitted to subsequent generations of information seekers and scholars. For paper-based documents, provision of adequate storage conditions was the best means to help ensure that materials would remain readable far into the future. With the advent of digital technology, many knowledge creators do their work on computers. Some of that knowledge may be printed on paper, but much of it, particularly databases, geographic information, scientific data sets, and Web sites, exists only in electronic form. At the same time, traditional forms of publications have changed significantly and, as a result, create new challenges. For example, publishers of electronic journals license their content to libraries, but libraries do not own that content and they may not have rights to capture digital content to preserve it. Who will preserve these materials?

Which organizations or systems will provide the needed preservation safety net for electronic materials?
What tools, technologies and standards are available to preserve information in digital format?
What are the best practices that can help us to address long-term digital archiving for a range of file formats and media types?

This course will examine these questions, as well as provide an introduction to the metadata needed for a digital environment, terminology, cross walking, harvesting, interoperability and metadata frequently used to describe digital collections. Practical hands-on exercises will be included. Through a combination of lecture, case studies and interactive sessions, students will learn about the long-term preservation requirements of digital assets.

e- Repositories (digital repositories) are the backbone of the Open Access Movement and over the years they have grown from supporting only research literature to encompassing data, and multimedia etc. and often have become an organizations' holistic digital asset management tool.  Encouraging researchers to deposit into an institutions digital repository requires targeted advocacy and efficient communication and outreach. This course will explore important repository aspects and address issues faced by those intending or implementing and managing their own repository or using the open, free, secure and permanent marine science thematic repository (OceanDocs). Communication & Outreach tools sessions will discuss and offer practical experience of creating websites and social media. An OceanDocs workshop will demonstrate and explore the benefits of joining the OceanDocs Community of depositors and users.  Practical exercises will be included.

The Digital Asset Management (DAM) Workshop will give participants the opportunity to explore a wide array of topics typically associated with a DAM infrastructure. Topics relevant to content creation, asset management, and dissemination will be presented during the workshop. Over the course of four days participants will have the opportunity to evaluate each topic area presented and develop a concept model based on the needs of the aquatic and marine science community. Several case studies will be presented throughout the course and working in groups, participants will interact with others who have similar asset management needs. Enterprise DAM is a very broad topic where infrastructure development in most cases requires careful assessment of the types of assets created, the ways in which they are used, and careful lifecycle management planning as these issues relate to the specific community of users. Participants should leave the workshop with an understanding of the purpose and value of DAM, the core principles typically associated with this type of system, and have articulated a first-level assessment of DAM needs within the community by creating a conceptual diagram.
