Sustainable economics for a digital Planet : ensuring long-term access to digital information /

by Blue Ribbon Task Force on Sustainable Digital Preservation nd Access.

Publisher: La Jolla, California Blue Ribbon Task Force on Sustainable Digital Preservation and Access 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Final report of the Blue Ribbon Task Force on Sustainable Digital Preservation and Access February 2010 Includes bibliographical refences and indexSummary: Digital information is a vital resource in our knowledge economy, valuable for research and education, science and the humanities, creative and cultural activities, and public policy. But digital information is inherently fragile and often at risk of loss. Access to valuable digital materials tomorrow depends upon preservation actions taken today; and, over time, access depends on ongoing and efficient allocation of resources to preservation. Ensuring that valuable digital assets will be available for future use is not simply a matter of finding sufficient funds. It is about mobilizing resources - human, technical, and financial, across a spectrum of stakeholders diffuse over both space and time. But questions remain about what digital information we should preserve, who is responsible for preserving, and who will pay. The Blue Ribbon Task Force on Sustainable Digital Preservation and Access investigated these questions from an economic perspective. In this report, we identify problems intrinsicto all preserved digital materials, and propose actions that stakeholders can take to meet these challenges to sustainability. We developed action agendas that are targeted to major stakeholder groups and to domain-specific preservation strategies.Availability: (1)

Slideology : the art and science of creating great presentations /

by Duarte, Nancy.

Publisher: Sebastopol, California O'Reilly Media 2008Description: xix, 274 p. : ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 262-263) and index. Contents: Creating a new slide ideology -- Creating ideas, not slides -- Creating diagrams -- Displaying data -- Thinking like a designer -- Arranging elements -- Using visual elements: background, color, and text -- Using visual elements: images -- Creating movement -- Governing with templates -- Interacting with slides -- Manifesto: the five theses of the power of a presentation.Summary: "No matter where you are on the organizational ladder, the odds are high that you've delivered a high-stakes presentation to your peers, your boss, your customers, or the general public. Presentation software is one of the few tools that requires professionals to think visually on an almost daily basis. But unlike verbal skills, effective visual expression is not easy, natural, or actively taught in schools or business training programs. slide:ology fills that void." "Written by Nancy Duarte, Principal of Duarte Design, the firm that created the presentation for Al Gore's Oscar-winning film, An Inconvenient Truth, this book is full of practical approaches to visual story development that can be applied by anyone. The book combines conceptual thinking and inspirational design, with insightful case studies from the world's leading brands." "Millions of presentations and billions of slides have been produced - and most of them miss the mark. slide:ology will challenge your traditional approach to creating slides by teaching you how to be a visual thinker. And it will help your career by creating momentum for your cause."Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

We-think /

by Leadbeater, Charles.

Edition: 2nd ed.Publisher: London, U.K. Profile Books 2009Description: xxxv, 300 p. : ill.Other title: We-think : mass innovation, not mass production.Notes: Illustrations by Debbie Powell Originally published: 2008 "Mass innovation, not mass production" - note on cover. Bibliography: p. 261-276 Includes index.Summary: Society is based not on mass consumption now but on mass, innovative participation - as is clear in phenomena from Wikipedia, Youtube and Craigslist to new forms of scientific research and political campaigning. This new mode of 'We-think' is reshaping the way we work, play and communicate."We-think" is about what the rise of these phenomena (not all to do with the internet) means for the way we organise ourselves - not just in digital businesses but in schools and hospitals, cities and mainstream corporations. For the point of the industrial era economy was mass production for mass consumption, the formula created by Henry Ford; but these new forms of mass, creative collaboration announce the arrival of a new kind of society, in which people want to be players, not spectators.This is a huge cultural shift, for in this new economy people want not services and goods, delivered to them, but tools so they can take part. In "We-think" Charles Leadbeater analyses not only these changes, but how theywill affect us and how we can make the most of them. Just as, in the 1980s, his "In Search of Work" predicted the rise of more flexible employment, here he outlines a crucial shift that is already affecting all of us.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
