Pros and cons of online archive data for academic research

Author:

Peter Halls

Abstract

Online archive data offers great potential for easing the data discovery and integration process during research. With a focus on spatial information and two specific York projects, two particular developments are identified as necessary to facilitate this process. The first, and relatively simple to deliver, concerns the inclusion of spatially explicit metadata with the archive catalogues. The second concerns the way archive material is digitized and delivered to the end user, and difficulties resulting from the prevailing approach of delivering digital image reproductions from the archives are explored. An additional service within the data delivery process to assist the end user in ingesting the material is also discussed.
