Plan

A Collections Strategy is required to provide a practical document to inform General Collections development and management to ensure UoE General Collections meet the needs of users from 2023 and beyond. The Collections Strategy will be promoted and available to all, providing a basis for explaining our General Collections approach to our stakeholders. 

The Library provides effective access to collections for all users, making best use of collection format (print or electronic), University of Edinburgh Library spaces and access to other collections held elsewhere nationally and internationally. The collection and analysis of data related to general collection items and their usage is required to inform projects to further transfer access from print to online where appropriate, to contribute to shared national collections and to review and de-duplicate print collections.  

The Information Services Group website is hosted on the University's Drupal 7-based CMS EdWeb. Drupal 7 is reaching its end of life in November 2023 and all content needs to be migrated over to a new Drupal 9 web publishing platform, ideally by April 2023. This project will deliver the migration of the Information Services Group webpages from EdWeb to the new Web-publishing platform. The project will focus preparing the current content prior to a lift and drop migration to the new platform.

Over the last years, several applications and servers have been PEN tested. PEN tests have established various vulnerabilities across a wide range of applications and infrastructures. While many of these vulnerabilities can be addressed under support or existing projects, there are an increasing numbers of vulnerabilities, which require time and effort which is beyond ongoing support or too large to add to existing projects.

This project is to address and fix outstanding larger and more complex vulnerabilities.
