JISC eCollections is a community-owned content service. To ensure that the service develops in line with current and future needs of teachers, learners and researchers in UK HE and FE, we have set up three advisory boards – one for JISC Historic Books, one for JISC Journal Archives and one for JISC MediaHub.
Members of the boards will work with JISC Collections, Mimas and EDINA to identify and agree new content to be licensed for each platform. They will also recommend enhancements to the platforms’ functionality and interface, in order that they integrate with and support use in education and research. The board members are instrumental in discussing and devising future strategies to help us preserve and sustain the platforms, and in developing the overall JISC eCollections strategy. They have ownership of the JISC eCollections budget.
Members of the boards include teaching staff, researchers and librarians from higher and further education institutions. The advisory boards are open to all and we welcome new members.
