Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Description of the Scottish Collections Network (SCONE) service, a component of the Scottish Common Information Environment that is used to find and display collection-level descriptions (metadata about collections as a whole) of archive, library and museum collections in Scotland. An important function of SCONE is to "landscape" collections when searching for items by location, subject, or educational level. Landscaping involves identifying collections and their online finding-aids (including catalogues) which are likely to contain items of interest, before carrying out more specific searches using local retrieval interfaces or relevant "union" catalogues.
