UGR teachers create a new practice digital platform for the Documentation Degree

25.01.2007
A thematic portal in the Internet, specialized in electronic documents and their impact in information society from the perspective of document and file management systems, is the result of a Teaching Innovation Project, “Design and development of a digital platform to support teaching and research”, that has been approved by the Vice-Rectorate of Teaching Planning, Quality and Evaluation of the University of Granada.

Librarianship and Documentation teachers take part in the project, coordinated by Professor Antonio Ángel Ruiz Rodríguez: Eduardo Peis Redondo, Mercedes de la Moneda Corrochano and David Gómez Domínguez, as well as Eugenio Aguirre Molina, from Computer Engineering, and Consuelo de las Mercedes Martín Vega, from the Record Office of the University.

According to the coordinator of the project, Antonio Ángel Ruiz Gutiérrez, “this portal is the basis for the development of a practice digital platform for the subjects of the Documentation Degree related to the course. Practice development benefits and gets support from a wide listing of informative resources related to the subject. As this portal is a great support for teaching and research and combines the two objectives of the University: The main objective is to become a national point of reference from the UGR.”

According to the coordinator of this Teaching Innovation Project, Antonio Ángel Ruiz Rodríguez, “in the last fifteen years, a lot of studies and projects from different fields have been carried out to clarify both conceptual and methodological aspects about electronic documents. It all has also reflected in the adaptation of some subjects of the diploma course and the degree in Librarianship and Documentation; we are refering especially to those subjects related to files and document management. Such subjects are the responsability of the members of this project. In this sense, the introduction of this kind of documents in the information world, especially in the field of documentary management systems, is a large challenge for society; therefore, education in these subjects is of special importance. It is important to know how to combine the possibilities and the advantages of electronic management with the security of its legal authenticity and validity”.

The international scientific community is advancing at a dizzy speed in the study of this subject (a clear proof is the DLM Forum – European Forum of the Machine-readable data). “For this reason- Prof. Ruiz says - a Portal specialized in electronic documents and their impactt in management systems would be an ideal platform to collect all the scientific advances in an organized way and to distribute them updated, as well as to develop a training on this subjects, related to the diploma course and the degree in Librarianship and Documentation.

The aim of this project is to compilate in a selective way all the scientific and informative resources about the subject in the Internet and group them by topic and category. In the same way, the portal is going to be used as teaching support, either by using the bibliographic material or by carrying out training in electronic files in collaboration with the Universities of Salamanca, Murcia, Complutense of Madrid and the Thecnical College of Valencia.

According to the coordinator, “the portal sets up as a practice plataform in the teaching of certain subjects of the Degree in Documentation. And, once consolidated, the offert will extend to foreign universities like, for example, the University of Texas at Austin, with which we already have a preliminary agreement”.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
