Abstract

Over the past 2 years the Design Manufacturing and Engineering Management Department at the University of Strathclyde has been developing a digital library to support student design learning in global team-based design engineering projects through the DIDET project [1]. Previous studies in the classroom have identified the need for the development of two parallel systems – a shared workspace, the LauLima Learning Environment (LLE) and a digital library, the LauLima Digital Library (LDL) [2]. These two elements are encapsulated within LauLima, developed from the open-sourced groupware Tikiwiki. This paper will look at the workflow in relation to populating the digital library, discuss the issues as they are experienced by staff and students, e.g. the application of metadata (keywords and descriptions); harvesting of resources; reuse in classes; granularity; intellectual property rights and digital rights management (IPR and DRM), and make suggestions for improvement.
