Sustainable Digital Scholarship@HKUL: Use Case

Use Case

Use Case

The Inter-generational Participatory Co-design Project (IPCP) was a knowledge exchange and research collaboration project co-organized by the HKU Libraries, the Common Core Office, the Sau Po Centre on Ageing, and the Faculty of Education during the 2019-20 academic year.

In the programme, three groups of HKU undergraduate students are teamed with secondary school students and retired Senior Champions (50+ years old) in Hong Kong to carry out projects addressing the importance for local cultural heritage.

During the projects, students made use of various kinds of technological innovations and produced quite a number of valuable digital data that could be of value or interest to the community. For maintaining sustainability and preservation of those data, they have been archived and shared on DataHub via the SDS services.

With a chosen customized background image and logo uploaded, a specialized collection page has been established especially for the IPCP project. On this page, data from the three projects are organized in a structured directory and published items are openly accessible by the public. Other private items are stored in the folder for archival and would not be publicly accessible until publication.
