Shared Services

Charter

(a) The Shared Services Working Group shall define "scholarly activities" and their connections to "Scholar Narratives" that evidence forms of the activities, to existing tools that implement aspects of the activities and to content forms and sources that might be the objects of analysis in the activities. The Shared Services Working Group will establish these definitions in close collaboration with the Scholarly Narratives Working Group and the Tool & Content Partners Working Group. The identification and definition of these scholarly activities shall be based on the materials captured during Workshop 1, analysis that followed, discussions in Workshops 2 and 3, and Scholar Narratives that continue to be collected. These scholarly activities shall be analyzed to identify a number of factors that will, in time, shape and define the initial iteration of an evolving Services Roadmap. These factors may include (but not limited to) entities, service capabilities and linkages.

(b) The Shared Services Working Group shall participate in the evolution of an iteration of a Services Roadmap that will be published as a Bamboo Planning Phase deliverable, and a starting point for Common Services identification in a Bamboo Implementation Phase. Members of this working group may be asked to participate in modeling work that develops candidate drafts of this deliverable. The working group as a whole will be asked to review and advise on the evolution of one or more candidate drafts.

(c) The Shared Services Working Group shall be responsible for drafting elements of the Bamboo Program Document - a document that describes Bamboo's long-term (7-10 year) arc - as identified by the Program Staff. Elements of the Bamboo Program Document will be the basis of a 3-year Bamboo Implementation Proposal to the Mellon Foundation's RIT program, to be submitted in October 2009.

To express interest in and volunteer for this working group, send email to: shared_services_wg@lists.berkeley.edu ; include "Working Group Interest" in the subject line. The membership list and work of this working group will be posted on the Bamboo planning wiki.
