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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
