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: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
