Hi, I’m Richard, an IT specialist since 1985. I’ve worked at ULCC since 1997 on a variety of web-based digital archives and repository systems. Recent projects include Linnean Online (an Eprints-powered archive of Linnaeus’s specimens), SAS-Space (DSpace IR for the School of Advanced Study) and NDAD (ten year-old dataset archive for the National Archives). Among the JISC repositories/preservation projects that I’ve been involved with are the Significant Properties studies, PRIMO (for the Institute of Musical Research) and SNEEP (Social Networking Extensions for Eprints). I’m also studying, part-time, on the MSc E-learning course at Edinburgh University, and I’m particularly interested in how blogs, wikis, social networks, and the like, are being used in education and research (Library 2.0, Classroom 2.0, etc).
