Title: Managing virtual resources at Australian Science and Technology Heritage Centre


1
Managing virtual resources at Australian Science
and Technology Heritage Centre
  • Joanne Evans
  • Deputy Director, Austehc
  • SIMS PhD Candidate

2
Introducing Austehc
  • Australian Science Archives Project (ASAP) set up
    in 1985 by the HPS department of the University
    of Melbourne
  • Characteristics
  • Non custodial (virtual) from the start
  • Established by researchers
  • Self funded
  • 1999 renamed the Australian Science and
    Technology Heritage Centre (Austehc)

3
Introducing Austehc (continued)
  • Early adopter of technology-
  • 1985 electronic typewriter
  • 1987 first PC
  • 1990 database development ? ADS
  • 1995 web site and server
  • 1995-98 Generation Victoria project and ADS
    becomes the HDMS
  • 1999 Bright Sparcs ? OHRM
  • 2000 Technology in Australia project ? WARP

4
Introducing Austehc (continued)
  • Inheritor of Australian archival description
    traditions
  • The Australian Series System see Describing
    Archives in Context A guide to Australian
    Practice

5
Genesis of the OHRM
  • Bright Sparcs
  • Guide to the Archives of Science in Australia
    Records of Individuals persons and their
    records by repository.
  • Directory of Archives in Australia contact
    details and major holdings of Australian
    archives.
  • Historical Records of Australian Science annual
    bibliography for the History of Australian
    Science and its predecessors.
  • Key features
  • Use existing resources, but re-purpose for a web
    environment
  • Gateway to all types of resources archival,
    published, and online

6
OHRM Database Structure
  • Standards
  • Entities - ISAAR(CPF)
  • Archival Resources ISAD(G)
  • Published Resources Australian Style Manual,
    Dublin Core.
  • Key features
  • Relational model efficiency of data entry
    representation of complexity
  • Standards compliance

7
OHRM Web Structure
8
OHRM Web Structure
  • Web pages e.g. Phillip Garth Law
  • Key features
  • Highly discoverable
  • Citable persistent identifiers, Dublin Core
    metadata
  • Combination of static and dynamic pages
  • Entity perspective, researcher perspective
  • Entity relationship model applicable beyond
    archival domain

9
OHRM Implementations
  • Bright Sparcs and Australian Science at Work
  • cyberfibres
  • A Guide to Australian Business Records
  • Australian Trade Union Archives
  • Australian Women's Archive Project
  • Agreements, Treaties and Negotiated Settlements
    (ATNS)
  • Lost Lives
  • 2004 Online Australian Dictionary of Biography,
    Images of Chinese Heritage in Australia,
    Victorian Aboriginal Corporation for Languages

10
Open Resource Scholarly Network
  • a scholarly web space that is self-sustaining,
    human friendly, and is also deeply connected with
    academic traditions
  • The Open Resource Scholarly Network New
    Collaborative Partnerships between Academics,
    Libraries, Archives and Museums, VALA 2002,
    http//www.vala.org.au/vala2002/2002pdf/15McCEva.p
    df
  • Example connecting Bright Sparcs and National
    Archives of Australias Record Search via Phillip
    Law

11
Functional Requirements
  • Citability
  • Who, what, where and when Resource discovery
    metadata
  • Persistent identifier remains the same no
    matter where the resource is located
  • Coherence
  • Designs which easily and explicit convey to the
    user the context, jurisdiction or framework of an
    information object
  • Conveys to user where they are and where they can
    go

12
Functional Requirements (continued)
  • Compliance
  • Use of standards to foster data and metadata
    interchange discovery and accessibility etc.
  • Communicability
  • Presentation of content in human and machine
    readable forms
  • Endurance
  • Managing resources through time
  • Preservation strategies

13
Larger Scale Architectures
  • Is such a network possible?
  • e.g. Walter Baldwin Spencer
  • Is it scalable?
  • Scale free complex networks in nature
    self-organising systems that result from
    processes based on iterative interaction of
    objects and the relationships they form
  • Small world effect six degrees of separation

14
PhD Research
  • Thesis Repositioning Archival Functions the
    capture and use of recordkeeping metadata
  • Use of OHRM to manage and map the relevant
    literature
  • Part of the Clever Recordkeeping Metadata Project
    demonstrate create once use many times
    through automating metadata capture and re-use.
