    >> From: Michael Fraser <mikef@ermine.ox.ac.uk>


    A one-day workshop to be held at Senate House, University of London, 12 July

    10.00am-4.00pm, with a wine reception 5.00-7.00pm

    The workshop is sponsored by the British Library; the Institute for English
    Studies; Olive Software; the Office for Humanities Communication, King's
    College, London; the Refugee Studies Centre, University of Oxford; the Joint
    Information Systems Committee (JISC). Its aim is to present the results of
    a unique pilot project in the digitization and delivery of historic
    newspapers to a wider audience, and to discuss the implications of this
    remarkable system for the preservation and presentation of similar materials
    in UK HE, archives and public libraries.

    Since January 2001, the British Library Newspaper Library, the Refugee
    Studies Centre at Oxford University, OCLC, the Malibu Hybrid Library Project
    at King's College London, and Olive Software have been working together to
    produce a prototype system for the digitization, indexing, and presentation
    of historic newspapers from the British Library Newspaper Library
    collection. 18 reels of microfilm have been scanned, and some 500,000
    newspaper articles indexed. Speakers will demonstrate the pilot project and
    discuss the practical implications of the various technologies.

    The workshop is free to all participants, who are also invited to a wine
    reception afterwards.

    Please excuse cross-posting. Please note revised dates for the
    The Seventh International ISKO Conference. Granada, Spain, 10-13
    July, 2002. "Challenges in Knowledge Representation and
    Organization for the 21st Century: Integration of Knowledge across
    Boundaries." Call for papers.

    The need for a worldwide communication system that can retrieve
    information efficiently, regardless of national and cultural
    boundaries, has become more and more pressing. New electronic
    environments (such as the Internet, where the world is at hand,
    where all cultures coexist, and where quality is low) have created
    this need. These new environments provide significant challenges for
    those dedicated to study and research on knowledge representation and
    organization. Similarly, the digitalization of information is
    responsible for increasing emphasis on the need for integrating models
    of knowledge representation and organization. Digitalization allows a
    huge amount of information to be stored and retrieved, and the
    challenge is to develop models to improve the management of information in
    this new framework. Traditional information retrieval
    systems face similar problems because we lack retrieval tools designed
    to integrate knowledge. In this situation, an in-depth examination of
    the integration of knowledge across boundaries is warranted.

    Study of the integration of knowledge leads to other important

    One of these is the concept of universality. New insights into
    universality needs to include topics geared to the revision of the
    concept, such as how universality was previously understood in
    knowledge organization, and what problems arose as a consequence of
    this understanding. Further, we need to move to a consideration of the
    concept of universality as it should be understood now, in the
    electronic era. How can universality be represented in conceptual
    structures? Integration of specialized knowledge across geographic or
    cultural domains can be a way to address this unsolved problem.

    Related to the same problem are topics such as how the integration of
    knowledge affects different subject domains and users, linguistic
    issues, and applications that support new models. In addition, we need
    to look at equality in knowledge organization. This is an important
    aspect for supranational systems, and it means that we need a special
    focus on minorities so that we can represent them well in knowledge
    structures. At the same time, professional ethics needs to be
    reflected within this framework because knowledge organization affects
    the way people think about and perceive reality, and minorities and
    other similar groups may become invisible or wrongly conceptualized.
    Professionals need to be aware of these issues and should be
    attempting to solve these problems.

    Faculty Satisfaction and Cost Effectiveness

    You are invited to an online Seminar on Learning Effectiveness, Faculty
    Satisfaction, and Cost Effectiveness July 20 - August 9. To see details
    and to register for the seminar, visit Seminar: Learning Effectiveness,
    Faculty Satisfaction, and Cost Effectiveness at
    http://www.aln.org/seminar2001registration. The registration fee of $49.95
    includes a copy of the book, Online Education, Volume 2: Learning
    Effectiveness, Faculty Satisfaction and Cost Effectiveness, formal case
    studies about new directions in online learning and program administration.

    Pioneers in online education will lead the seminar. The seminar leaders
    are from leading institutions in higher education, members of the Sloan
    Consortium for asynchronous learning networks.

    In September 2000, the Sloan Foundation sponsored an invitation-only
    workshop at Lake George in upstate New York. Faculty and staff from
    Sloan-funded projects studied issues affecting the evolution of higher
    education online, according to the Sloan-C founding principles of effective
    learning, student and faculty satisfaction, cost effectiveness and
    increasing accessibility. It became clear that the workshop deserved a
    wider audience.

    Now, with the convenience of asynchronous online delivery, you can join an
    invaluable conversation. Participation in the seminar is limited, so sign
    up soon. Simply visit the Seminar Registration site
    (http://www.aln.org/seminar2001registration) to preview the seminar topics
    and register before July 20, 2001.

    Please send your questions or comments to: janet.c.moore@vanderbilt.edu

    We look forward to working with you for higher quality learning online.
