Shared services – shared necessity: Austerity, reformed local government and reduced budgets


Shared services are now established as a core delivery model in local and regional governance arrangements. Shared services have emerged as a ‘common sense’ delivery vehicle with attendant efficiency and effectiveness gains. There is, however, a more complex intellectual provenance to a reliance on shared services. In essence, shared services are the logical outcome of the deliberate turn to neo-liberal thinking and the various iterations of the new public managerialism methodology which has progressively established itself in local and regional governance over the past thirty years or so. This paper explores the neo-liberal provenance of shared services and considers the consequential vulnerabilities to austerity, administrative reform and reduced public sector budgets. The central proposition of the paper is that while neo-liberal ideas have created the justification for shared services, this has embedded a set of systemic tensions in the delivery model.

Special Issue on Cyberinfrastructure, Machine Learning, and Digital Library

between machine learning, cyberinfrastructure and digital library is an important step to achieve smart data and information management. However, there is lack of mediums and forums that bring together researchers and practitioners to share visions, questions, latest advances in methodology, application experiences, and best practices. Library and archival professionals are often unfamiliar with cyberinfrastructure. In turn, cyberinfrastructure experts lack experience in traditional digital library and archives practices such as metadata, provenance, publishing

Identifier Services: Modeling and Implementing Distributed Data Management in Cyberinfrastructure

functions create a representation of a dataset’s provenance and evolution. IDS can be used by researchers to track data stored at multiple locations, and vice versa, by repositories and data stores to continue tracking the evolution of the datasets. This paper is organized as follows. In the Related Work section, we discuss authenticity as the conceptual framework for IDS, and review how different repository and data management projects support identity functions and implement data models. Along with each point, we clarify the novel contributions brought by IDS. In the
