The Academic Applications Forum, supported by Eduserv, provides a forum for discussion of topics related to applications support in the academic environment. Membership is largely, but not exclusively, drawn from Computer Centre staff in the UK University sector. Eduserv CHEST support the Forum and attend all of the meetings, so this Forum provides a valuable means of making them aware of current issues and requirements.

I'd like to ask if there are any other small university colleges or colleges (under or only slightly over 1000 students) who have migrated from Speedwell Question Bank and Multiquest software, and its exam paper scanner. We are using an old scanner and version of this software, both of which are out of support, and need to look into alternatives as well as the option of purchasing a new scanner and Speedwell software licensing. I'd be very grateful for any help

Identity, Representation and Preservation in Community Digital Archives and Collections is a 12 month project funded by a British Academy Rising Star Engagement Award (2018) held by Dr. Sharon Webb (Principal Investigator). It is an intervention in three important areas; community archives, digital preservation and content representation. As communities take charge of their heritage, and create their own digital archives, the long-term viability and sustainability of these increasingly important collections, is uncertain. LGBTQ+ communities, feminist networks, black communities, among other marginalised groups, use digital technology to ensure representation and to protect against future erasure from the historical record. However, these representations are at risk of loss because of the fragility of digital archives and their associated infrastructures, both the human infrastructures (i.e. volunteers) and the digital infrastructures. This project asks what are the implications of a community-driven approach to long-term sustainability of these materials, and how might we support community archives without removing their agency. # The programme of work, will bridge the gap between community archives and the individuals and institutions with the means to provide (digital) infrastructural advice and support. It acknowledges and recognizes the autonomy of communities seeking to capture their own narratives as digital archives; and does not seek to intervene in the process of community collection; instead, it explores how communities might be supported in the long-term; and along the way asks how we can link them to academic research infrastructures.

The Software Ontology for Resource Description (SWORD) project is a short, six month, project to start the development of a software ontology. This will enable descriptions to be made of software artefacts used in the creation, management and analysis of data. Such descriptions are an important part of digital preservation as knowing what software have been used with data enables quality assurance, re-creation, repetition and judgments to be made about the data in hand.
