This week (20th-24th March) the first DataFest, a week-long festival of data innovation, takes place with events running across Scotland. EDINA is delighted to be presenting three workshops, all of which are open to all audiences and free to attend, as part of the DataFest Fringe. Our events, which are also part of “Designing with Data” – a strand of events designed by a group of innovative public and private sector organisations across Edinburgh, include:
EDINA's Paul Walk has recently co-edited a technical book on "Developing Metadata Application Profiles", along with Mariana Curado Malta (Polytechnic of Oporto, Portugal & Algoritmi Center, University of Minho, Portugal) and Ana Alice Baptista (Algoritmi Center, University of Minho, Portugal).

Twelve additional publishers have recently joined the CLOCKSS archive to preserve their publications for future generations of researchers.
The decentralised preservation archive ensures that the digital assets of the community will survive intact, simultaneously announced the support of two additional libraries.
