Scholarly Search & Discovery

I was delighted to be invited to the GeoScienceWorld board meeting in Iceland during May, on behalf of Robert Gordon University, to talk about information search and discovery.

Textual and spatial (http://www.opengeosci.org) are key information delivery areas. I thoroughly enjoyed the field trips and discussions, including representatives from MIT, American Geological Institute (AGI), Geological Society of America (GSA), Society of Economic Geologists, the Coal Authority, Aramco Services the Geological Society of London and many other scholarly societies and universities. Fantastic bunch of people. Seeing the rift valley, geothermal plant and talks on glaciers and volcanoes by geologists from the University of Iceland were some of the highlights.
