Internet, archaeology on Richards J.D. Encyclopedia of Archaeology English 2010 Archaeological adoption of the Internet is considered in the context of broader trends in scholarly communication and e-commerce. The impact of electronic publication on archaeology and the growth of e-journals is discussed. The deep web, and the rich content available from on-line databases and other web resources is also considered. The transience of the web, and problems of digital preservation is addressed. The use of the internet for more community based interactions and the growth of internet discussion groups, web blogs, and news feeds, is also discussed. The Internet has been seen as a great democratiser of archaeological knowledge, but others claim it creates a new technocractic elite, and restricts access to the developed world. Finally, the problem of resource discovery is raised, and the difficulties of finding authoritative information. Does the future lie in greater adoption of metadata standards and the development of the semantic web, or does Google have all the answers? © 2008 Copyright © 2008 Elsevier Inc.

AI Magazine English 2010 This article introduces the challenge of digital preservation in the area of engineering design and manufacturing and presents a methodology to apply knowledge representation and semantic techniques to develop digital engineering archives. This work is part of an ongoing, multiuniversity effort to create cyber infrastructure-based engineering repositories for undergraduates (CIBER-U) to support engineering design education. The technical approach is to use knowledge representation techniques to create formal models of engineering data elements, work flows, and processes. With these techniques formal engineering knowledge and processes can be captured and preserved with some guarantee of long-term interpretability. The article presents examples of how the techniques can be used to encode specific engineering information packages and work flows. These techniques are being integrated into a semantic wiki that supports the CIBER-U engineering education activities across nine universities and involving more than 3500 students since 2006.

Urobe: a prototype for wiki preservation Niko Popitsch

7th International Conference on Preservation of Digital Objects English 2010 More and more information that is considered for digital long-term preservation is generated by Web 2.0 applications like wikis, blogs or social networking tools. However, there is little support for the preservation of these data today. Currently they are preserved like regular Web sites without taking the flexible, lightweight and mostly graph-based data models of the underlying Web 2.0 applications into consideration. By this, valuable information about the relations within these data and about links to other data is lost. Furthermore, information about the internal structure of the data, e.g., expressed by wiki markup languages is not preserved entirely. We argue that this currently neglected information is of high value in a long-term preservation strategy of Web 2.0 data and describe our approach for the preservation of wiki contents that is based on Semantic Web technologies. In particular we describe the distributed architecture of our wiki preservation prototype (Urobe) which implements a migration strategy for wiki contents and is based on Semantic Web and Linked Data principles. Further, we present a first vocabulary for the description of wiki core elements derived from a combination of established vocabularies/standards from the Semantic Web and digital preservation domains, namely Dublin Core, SIOC, VoiD and PREMIS. 0 0
