Eldis OnDisc : Feasibility study for document caching and CD-ROM creation and distribution project

INSTITUTE OF DEVELOPMENT STUDIES
June 2005

Expand view

This report documents the Institute of Development Studies' investigation into the feasibility of creating Eldis OnDisc, a CD-ROM derived from their extensive website of development information. This report provides: background to the proposal, description of how the feasibility study was conducted, findings from the user survey, publisher survey, and other interviews, recommended next steps, and suggested budget. Annexes include user and publisher surveys, potential copyright agreements, and user and publisher responses to their proposal. The report concludes that there is a substantial market for offline distribution of Eldis-identified documents, and that publishers and distributors seem very interested in participating in this. Key findings from the survey are that: users still have problems accessing full text on the internet and have a need for offline access to such content, for both their own work and that of their colleagues; publishers are generally willing to release copyright, but there is a major logistical task in collecting the agreements although there is a growing interest in open-source content provision; users see value in a range of disc formats, including both single subject and multiple subject discs; and finally, small scale, high-impact distribution is possible. The business case for Eldis' involvement in such distribution is leverage of the IDS network of information service consumers

Summary of email discussion on HIF-net at WHO : "Role of CD-ROMS" 4 November - 28 November 2003

PORTER, Christine

Summary of a 27-message discussion on the use of CD-ROMS and other media by health professionals in resource-poor settings. The discussion began with questions being posed by the Health Information Forum (HIF) moderator about the role of CDs in advance of a face-to-face HIF meeting. Most contributors said they or those they work with favour CDs over online access to resources because internet connections are absent, too slow and/or too expensive. Core uses of CDs are learning and teaching, research and resource access (e.g., journals) and medical data storage and retrieval (including images)

The multimedia toolkit aims to promote and support linkages between new and traditional media for development through a structured set of materials. The materials are based on a standard set of templates, and are intended to be used as building blocks from which trainers can build up training workshops appropriate for their own contexts. New materials will be added to this ItrainOnline section as they are developed; the materials currently available are just a starting point. Eventually the MMTK will offer a comprehensive suite of training materials covering technical, content, organizational and ethical topics

Utilising photos, reference documents, self-tests and MTV-style music videos, it serves to interact with and engage young men and encourage them to explore their attitudes and behaviours about these issues
