The GLAM Question: How Drupal Can Answer The Big Data Problem

Drupal is a great editor's tool and datastore. It is a powerful integration tool. With the addition of existing modules you can expose culturally significant archives to (and from) your Drupal site.

This session looks at the value universities, galleries, libraries, archives and museums (the GLAM sector) can get out of creating or interoperating with archives in Drupal. We've done a bunch of work with the University of New South Wales, the Australian Government and University Newcastle in building archives that have two main purposes:

* To collate disparate research and make it available to the community for research, ingestion and mashing.
* To capitalise on the value of audiovisual research – in particular to identify significance and provide academic citations in audiovisual based research outcomes.

This session is an overview and assessment of the overarching concepts in metadata harvesting and the available standards and tools. It looks at some practical examples and use cases.

According to those within the industry, buying papers is a necessary reaction to serious underlying issues in the educational system. All college and university professors will tell you the same thing: to them, the act of purchasing papers online is no different than plagiarism. However, some argue that the issue is more complex than that claiming, that the content completed by professional writers is not plagiarized. It is completely unique, well-researched and properly-referenced. When a customer buys this type of product, he has the right to use it as a source for another paper, or simply submit it as his own. The teacher may suspect that the student didn’t write a particular paper, but there is no way to prove such claims. Higher education is an industry on its own. Universities accept more applicants, including international students who don’t have the needed grasp of the English language to write extraordinary academic content. On the other hand, they don’t provide effective support that would enable these students to fit into the system. Check for essay writing service

This is very interesting. Durupal is such a great platform for creating sites and blogs. I actually tried to create some. At first it was actually hard but after some time i got used to interface and now i'm doing kinda great actually. I'm still trying to improve tho. But currently i'm a bit busy with writing an assignments for students. They're literally coming to our service with asks like "write papers for me". And i'm really amused with possibility to help those students!
