MetadataShow full item record
This is a proposal for a Poster for Open Repositories 2009 describing ongoing work by the University of London Computer Centre and the Linnean Society of London to provide online access, using EPrints, to a large quantity of digitised material from the archives of the 18th Century scientist Carl Linnaeus (www.linnean-online.org). It also describes the resultant UK JISC-funded project, SNEEP (Social Networking Extensions for EPrints). This extended the Bookmarks functionality to implement user-contributed Comments and Tagging for items in the repository.
