Promoting discovery and use of repository content: An architectural perspective
Slides and notes for a talk I gave at a NARA/UMD conference. (The notes include a full script, though it differs slightly from the talk as delivered.)
In this talk, I stress the importance of effective discovery as an essential component of (and aid to) preservation. I advocate the importance of opening up information, system, and social architectures to do so, with examples that include subject maps, the DLF ILS-DI work, VCat, and PennTags.
Some of the material in the talk was adapted from the "High Quality Discovery in a Web 2.0 World" talk I gave for Palinet.
