ResIDe: Electronic reserve for UK Universities
as of 24th July 1996
IntroductionMaking use of existing expertise within the library, this project seeks to develop supporting infrastructures for an electronic reserve, commonly known as electronic short loan collection. It will involve the development and assessment of appropriate collection and electronic copyright management mechanisms using standard software and protocols. The project is based in the Bolland Library and the Faculty of the Built Environment, both of which are located on the Frenchay Campus of the University of the West of England, Bristol.
DescriptionThe project will pilot an electronic reserve system aimed at students in the Faculty of the Built Environment (FBE). The project will build on a system called ResIDe (Research, Information and Delivery) developed as part of the DevR Research Programme and will expand upon this to provide wider applicability throughout the Higher Education community. The system uses an internal Netscape server and underlying relational database to access and control data of various types and sources. The project will build on this structure to provide management of the flow of documents and data in and out of the system together with management of copyright issues.
ParticipantsThe project is lead by UWE Library Services and the Faculty of the Built Environment.
Project partners are: ESRC Data Archive, the Institute of Housing and the Museum of London. The project partners will participate on the Steering Committee and be consulted throughout the course of the project.
Ordnance Survey, Great Britain's National Mapping Agency has also agreed through its Education Team to provide advice on data security and usage monitoring requirements for OS Digital Map Data within a single site information and dissemination system.
The Electronic Libraries Programme (eLib) was funded
by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC)
