How to prepare for the financial side of open access

How to prepare for the financial side of open access | Information Management: All things bright and beautiful | Scoop.it
Disruption in any sector naturally incurs costs in transitioning to a new model or way of working. Despite its promise to liberate research and benefit universities, the move to open access (OA) publishing is no exception - and a particularly topical issue with Open Access Week 2014 starting on Monday.

Q&A: how archives make history

Q&A: how archives make history | Information Management: All things bright and beautiful | Scoop.it

© Copyright HeritageDaily - Heritage & Archaeology News 

The early modern period (1500-1800) saw a surge in the keeping of records. A conference later this week (9-10 April 2014) at the British Academy will look at the origins of the archives that shape our understanding of history.

We asked ten of the conference participants to answer some key questions about archives with particular reference to the period 1500 to 1800.

1. What constitutes an archive in the early modern period?

2. How is our understanding of history shaped by archives?

3. How are archives created?

4. Why were some records kept and others lost – and what can we learn from the gaps, silences and absences? 

5. What can we learn about (and from) the organisation of archives?

6. What archives are you using in your current research?

7. What particular challenges do archives present to you as a researcher?

8. What is the relationship between private and public record-keeping?

9. How can we best facilitate access to archives?

10. What has been your most memorable or frustrating ‘archive moment’?

Why do traditional paper books remain so popular, especially for deep, immersive reading? Are some people simply too stubborn and nostalgic to adapt to new technologies? Perhaps it's because paper books are themselves a highly sophisticated technology, one that's uniquely good at stimulating focus and concentration.
