UK Data Service Webinar: In cooperation with IIQM and HRDR

The UK Data Service is hosting a webinar to introduce UK Quali Bank, a new qualitative data browsing system, based on robust XML metadata.

The Digital Futures project, sponsored by the ESRC, has enabled the creation of a system, UK Quali Bank, that utilises the XML schema QuDEx. QuDEx was developed with the explicit purpose of complementing the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) for social science study and survey based description.

This webinar will introduce our implementation of QuDEX, and show – very practically – what metadata we use to describe, search, and view qualitative files and their relationship to each other within a collection.

As PI of this project, Louise Corti invites you to come and find out more about this really exciting development. Her technical colleagues, Darren Bell at the UK Data Archive and Agustina Martinez at Liverpool John Moore’s, will be on hand to answer any more technical questions.

Date: December 11, 2013
Time: 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. GMT

Chili Cook-Off!

Hats off to Research Librarian, Thane (left), and her lovely assistant, Amanda (right), Director of IIQM! Last week’s chili cook-off was hearty, scrumptious, and filling – perfect for this chilly weather. Though Thane’s famous chili didn’t take the prize, there was no question that her “His and Hers” entry was popular!
