OAI ORE Experiment Video

I'm a bit slow off the mark here, but the August edition (Volume 3 Number 3) of Cyberinfrastructure Technology Quarterly was dedicated to the topic of "The Coming Revolution in Scholarly Communications & Cyberinfrastructure". It features several interesting pieces, including an article by Herbert Van de Sompel and Carl Lagoze titled "Interoperability for the Discovery, Use, and Re-Use of Units of Scholarly Communication" which summarises the work of the OAI ORE project.

The article is broadly similar in its coverage to that of the "white paper" circulated by the OAI ORE project in May - but with an interesting addition/complement in the form of a video in which Herbert reprises the aims of the project and the approaches proposed, and also outlines an experiment conducted by staff from the Digital Library Research & Prototyping Team of the Los Alamos Laboratory Research Library using the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine to capture "Resource Maps" (based on using the Atom Syndication format to represent those Resource Maps), and tracing changes in those maps, and the structural relationships between the objects described by them, over time.
