Some more final blogposts have emerged this week:
- AEIOU project
- AGtivity project who are inviting any institutions who run an Access Grid node in the UK and who are interested in having their node's data analysed to get in touch.
- SALT project who have been refining their thinking on how they can evaluate the value of the long tail as a result of their user evaluations and have also written a blogpost on how they've significantly improved the efficiency of their recommender API by refining how they process their data.
- UCIAD have shared their technical architecture and their thoughts on some of the tools they've been using. They've also been blogging about their project's wins and fails, anonymisation and licencing of software and data, and the benefits of UCIAD to end users and the institution. Interesting stuff, particularly the link into consumer exploitation of their data to monitor and improve their performance.
- OU RISE shared their updated technical approach which is also worth reading for the discussion in the comments re: anonymisation (albeit from earlier in the year).
- An article on search and how university libraries are getting it wrong by putting blocks in the way of student curiousity.
- An article by Paul Miller on keeping the user experience in mind when using semantic technologies to join up the dots in our data. His point about allowing the user to feel like they are the one controlling the experience strikes me as key.
