  • Editorial: Makerspaces, Agile, Reading Lists and Migrations

    • Abstract: Ariadne has changed many times over its 20+ year life so far, and this year is no exception. When we inherited Ariadne at Loughborough we upgraded the Drupal based system that Bath had been using for some time and we have run with that for a couple of years. However we’ve found it increasingly time consuming to maintain for little gain to the journal - many of the Drupal blogging features we don’t need or use get regular updates and security patches for example.

  • UX Made EZ: An Agile Approach to Testing a Digital Collection

    • Abstract: INTRODUCTION In March 2018, after more than two years of development, the creators of the Animal Welfare Act History Digital Collection (AWAHDC, awahistory.nal.usda.gov ) were poised to launch this unique new digital library. We had encountered and solved many problems with the workflows (as described in Gucer et al. 2019) throughout the process of designing and implementing this collection in house at the National Agricultural Library (NAL, nal.usda.gov). These backend problems had delayed the completion of our user interface until the last stages of the project, but in the late spring of 2018 were finally ready to go live with this interface—almost.

  • Educause 2018

    • Abstract: In 2018, I was one of the lucky recipients of a UCISA bursary, which enabled me to attend the Educause conference in Denver, Colorado. The Educause conference is something that has been on my radar for 20 years, and it’s no coincidence that it is celebrating 20 years this year. The younger me would have been overawed at the sheer size of this event, but after having presented at and attended conferences for the last 20 years, I felt ready for it.

  • Migrating Ariadne from Drupal to a Static Site

    • Abstract: Introduction At the start of 2019 Ariadne[1] moved from being a Drupal[2] site to being a static site. This move realised a number of benefits for the journal including an improvement in the site performance and a reduction in the ongoing effort required for site maintenance.Why move away from Drupal' When the technical running of Ariadne moved from the University of Bath to Loughborough University in 2015 it was decided to upgrade Drupal to the latest version[3].

  • Building a Digital Scholarship Centre on the Successes of a Library
           Makerspace

    • Abstract: Introduction The 2017 Library Edition of the well-known Horizon Report (NMC Horizon report, 2017) describes ‘Digital Scholarship Technologies’ as one of the important developments in technology for Academic and Research Libraries. According to the report “The concept of digital scholarship has origins in the late 1990s in the United Kingdom. Originally referred to as e-science, the idea of applying new technology and data analysis tools to scholarship cycled through other names like cyber-infrastructure and e-scholarship, before landing on the current umbrella term.

  • Figshare Fest 2018

    • Abstract: Why am I here' At Loughborough University we have been working with Figshare (1) to provide a cloud hosted repository (2) to house the institution’s research outputs (datasets, presentations, diagrams and figures etc.) since 2015. At the same time the University’s ‘Institutional Repository’ (3) for publications (Journal articles, conference papers, book chapters etc.) has been hosted locally using an instance of DSpace (4).This DSpace instance has become more than a little long in the tooth and the University recently went out to tender to replace that system.
