Building a Digital Archive with DSpace in Rotterdam

Building a Digital Archive: A Dutch Experience
http://www.rlg.org/en/page.php?Page_ID=20865#article2

Authors: Peter Horsman – Archives School, Amsterdam (p.j.horsman@archiefschool.nl), Klaartje Pompe – Rotterdam (k.pompe@gar.rotterdam.nl)

Exzerpts:

In January 2004, the municipal archives of the Dutch harbour city of Rotterdam started an ambitious project to construct a solution for the long term preservation of its digital materials. Project planners asked the Netherlands Archives School for support, and a cooperative effort between the two organizations ensued. The Archives School brings both knowledge and training skills to the project, as well as research expertise. In the School’s strategy, teaching, research, and practical applications are closely connected.

The municipal archives of Rotterdam is not a small organization. It has a staff of over 100 and holdings of 17 linear kilometers of records, hundreds of thousands of photographs, maps, drawings, prints, and books. Like most Dutch archives, it endorses the Total Archives concept, aiming to document the local society and serving as a primary source of the town’s rich history, dating back to the Middle Ages. Today, Rotterdam is a modern city, with a population of around 700,000 and a port that boasts to be the world’s largest. Increasingly the town administration carries out its business electronically, and consequently, records are created in digital form. The archives anticipates ingesting electronic records in the near future; most of the photographs, television and sound recordings are currently delivered in digital format. Furthermore, like many cultural heritage institutions, the archives undertakes programs to digitize original analog materials in order to improve access and use of its holdings. All of these types of digital materials need to be preserved as valuable cultural assets.

Project Goals

The initial goal was to develop a low-cost digital repository (e-depot), based on state-of-the art theory, standards, and best practices. The underlying idea was that if it is impossible to build a digital repository for a reasonable cost then keeping digital materials would be an impossible task for any Dutch archive. […]

How to Proceed?

Whatever decision about DSpace is taken, the work will go on. Next steps include a rigorous system design. Based on design decisions, software options will be evaluated. The archive will need to decide the extent to which to continue with open source software. The original choice for DSpace and other open source software was a pragmatic one. DSpace was available and proved to be a good tool for acquiring knowledge and experience. A fundamental discussion about open source software has not, as of yet, been undertaken.

Working with open source is not necessarily less costly than using commercial software. It requires working with communities, and there are problems with an archival institution entering into a community mainly consisting of libraries. For open source to work, it is absolutely necessary to establish an archival community to cooperate and to share experiences and costs.

Kalliope

Die Teilnahme am Verbundsystem Nachlässe und Autographen KALLIOPE
http://kalliope.staatsbibliothek-berlin.de
ist derzeit für Archive, die keine umfangreichen Nachlassbestände haben, zu aufwändig, zumal eine Schulung in Berlin empfohlen wird. Sollte ein problemloser Export etwa aus MIDOSA XML möglich werden, ist es denkbar, diese Bewertung zu revidieren.

Ein Vergleich hinsichtlich
Habel, Christian Friedrich (1747-1814)
ergab, dass die Informationen auf Nachlassebene in der Datenbank des Bundesarchivs http://www.bundesarchiv.de/zdn sehr viel informativer sind als der dürftige KALLIOPE-Eintrag.

Eine einheitliche Freitextsuche über alle drei Datenbankbestandteile (Personen, Bestände, Autographen) existiert in Kalliope nicht, man muss also bei den jeweiligen Sucheinstiegen jeweils eigene Recherchen durchführen, was gewisse Recherche-Kompetenzen voraussetzt. Bei Beständen und Autographen ist eine Freitextsuche möglich, nicht jedoch bei Personen (Geburtsorte und Sterbeorte sind daher nicht auffindbar).

Abstract

[English abstract]

Since a couple of years there is a strong voice for open access – that is unrestricted free online access to research articles for everyone. By presenting a typology of open access, we discuss the realization of open access journals using various combinations of business models. There are high expectations, but as business models are still in flux, new challenges arise for libraries dealing with „institutional memberships“ and stagnating serials budgets.

[German abstract]

Seit einigen Jahren gibt es eine starke Forderung nach Open Access, also dem unbeschränkten, freien Online-Zugang zu wissenschaftlichen Artikeln für jedermann. In diesem Artikel wird aufbauend auf einer Typologie von Open-Access-Varianten die Umsetzung von Open-Access- Zeitschriften mittels unterschiedlicher Geschäftmodelle diskutiert. An diese Zeitschriften werden hohe Erwartungen herangetragen. Da sich die Geschäftsmodelle jedoch laufend wandeln, stehen Bibliotheken, die es mit „institutionellen Mitgliedschaften“ und stagnierenden Erwerbungsetats zu tun haben, neuen Herausforderungen gegenüber.

Keywords: open access, business models, open access journals, scholarly communication, serials crisis, Open Access Zeitschriften, Geschäftsmodelle, Zeitschriftenkrise

YOU can help Wikipedia!

The following is from

Jim Giles, Internet encyclopaedias go head to head, Nature, December 14, 2005. (Thanks to Declan Butler.) Excerpt:

Jimmy Wales‘ Wikipedia comes close to Britannica in terms of the accuracy of its science entries….[A]n expert-led investigation carried out by Nature — the first to use peer review to compare Wikipedia and Britannica’s coverage of science — suggests that such high-profile examples [of Wikipedia errors] are the exception rather than the rule. The exercise revealed numerous errors in both encyclopaedias, but among 42 entries tested, the difference in accuracy was not particularly great: the average science entry in Wikipedia contained around four inaccuracies; Britannica, about three. Considering how Wikipedia articles are written, that result might seem surprising. A solar physicist could, for example, work on the entry on the Sun, but would have the same status as a contributor without an academic background. Disputes about content are usually resolved by discussion among users. But Jimmy Wales, co-founder of Wikipedia and president of the encyclopaedia’s parent organization, the Wikimedia Foundation of St Petersburg, Florida, says the finding shows the potential of Wikipedia. „I’m pleased,“ he says. „Our goal is to get to Britannica quality, or better.“…In the study, entries were chosen from the websites of Wikipedia and Encyclopaedia Britannica on a broad range of scientific disciplines and sent to a relevant expert for peer review. Each reviewer examined the entry on a single subject from the two encyclopaedias; they were not told which article came from which encyclopaedia. A total of 42 usable reviews were returned out of 50 sent out, and were then examined by Nature’s news team. Only eight serious errors, such as misinterpretations of important concepts, were detected in the pairs of articles reviewed, four from each encyclopaedia. But reviewers also found many factual errors, omissions or misleading statements: 162 and 123 in Wikipedia and Britannica, respectively….[T]o improve Wikipedia, Wales is not so much interested in checking articles with experts as getting them to write the articles in the first place. As well as comparing the two encyclopaedias, Nature surveyed more than 1,000 Nature authors and found that although more than 70% had heard of Wikipedia and 17% of those consulted it on a weekly basis, less than 10% help to update it.

In its accompanying editorial Nature endorses Wikipedia and asks scientists to help it out:

So can Wikipedia move up a gear and match the quality of rival reference works? Imagine the result if it did: a comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date reference work that can be accessed free from Manhattan to rural Mongolia. To achieve this, Wikipedia’s administrators will have to tackle everything from future funding problems — the site is maintained by public donations — to doubts about whether enough new contributors can be found to increase the quality of the mushrooming number of entries. That latter point is critical, and here scientists can make a difference. Judging by a survey of Nature authors, conducted in parallel with the accuracy investigation, only a small percentage of scientists currently contribute to Wikipedia. Yet when they do, they can make a significant difference. Wikipedia’s non-expert contributors are, by and large, dedicated to getting things right on the site. But scientists can bring a critical eye to entries on subjects they study, often highlighting errors and misunderstandings that others have unintentionally introduced. They can also start entries on topics that other users may not want to tackle. It is no surprise, for example, that the entry on ’spin density wave‘ was originated by a physicist….Nature would like to encourage its readers to help. The idea is not to seek a replacement for established sources such as the Encyclopaedia Britannica, but to push forward the grand experiment that is Wikipedia, and to see how much it can improve. Select a topic close to your work and look it up on Wikipedia. If the entry contains errors or important omissions, dive in and help fix them. It need not take too long. And imagine the pay-off: you could be one of the people who helped turn an apparently stupid idea into a free, high-quality global resource.

PS: I made a similar point in SOAN for July 2005:

If you’re an expert on a certain topic, then make sure that Wikipedia includes the fruits of your expertise….You may not have a high opinion of Wikipedia, but there are two reasons not to let that stop you. First, it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. If experts add or enhance articles to reflect their expertise, then Wikipedia will deserve respect to that extent. Second, Wikipedia is an increasingly common first stop, and probably last stop, for non-academic users looking for information. If you want to be visible to non-academic users, then it’s an eyeball destination that you can easily join….Don’t give up your standards, but don’t judge this resource from mere presumptions without firsthand knowledge.
