Challenges to digital scholarship
-
Comparative and interdisciplinary
nature of research – increasingly
difficult to delimit the focus on
nuclear topics from broader global
themes (IAEA publications attest to
this)
-
Big data
-
Rising need for evaluated and
credible sources - difference
between scientific activity (“good
enough”) to scientific achievement
(“exploratory research”)
-
Point-of-need access to content
THEN:
Resources were scarce
and time was abundant
-
Comprehensive content, semantic web
-
User services (data curation, new research
infrastructures)
-
User services (online or in person training,
information analysis, new library spaces)
-
Information services rebuilt around user
work-flows (sophisticated linking
technologies, interconnectedness of webscale library systems, discoverability)
NOW:
Resources are abundant
and time is scarce
