Title: Linnean Online and SNEEP
Author: Davis, Richard Miles
Abstract: I will outline ongoing work by the University of London Computer Centre and the Linnean Society of London to provide online access to a large quantity of digitised material from the archives of the 18th Century scientist Carl Linnaeus (www.linnean-online.org). Technical innovations have included several additions to the core EPrints functionality. For the user, these include: - use of the FSI Viewer utility to enable the user to magnify and measure the images - embedded hyperlinks to cross-link common metadata values - user-managed bookmarks - links to an external site of transcripts and translations of the correspondences Work on Linnean Online also led to a 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.
