As institutions continue to absorb the impact of reduced budgets and increasing financial pressures, the need to save money, maximise value and demonstrate efficient content procurement is critical.
In this session, three of the JISC Services; JISC Collections, Mimas and EDINA will showcase some of the new digital solutions that they have developed collaboratively on behalf of the education and research community:
JISC Historic Books – The full text or page images of every book published in England before 1800 (currently available in two separate collections, Early English Books Online and Eighteenth-Century Collections Online), plus the full text of over 65,000 19th Century books from the British Library
JISC Mediahub – over 150,000 photos and more than 500 hours of moving-image content, including newsfilm from major agencies such as ITN, Getty, and AP Archive, and historic newsreel footage dating back to the early years of the 20th century
JISC UK Journals Archive – more than 3.75 million scholarly journal articles from the archives of major publishers such as Oxford University Press, The Institute of Physics, Taylor & Francis, and the Royal Society of Chemistry
This new shared Service will ensure long-term access and preservation of the huge range of content that has been bought by JISC on behalf of the education community. The development of this community owned content will be managed by editorial boards comprising of senior academics and information specialists from across the education spectrum and teaching and learning boards to ensure that the Service is developed to your requirements.
