dc.description.abstract All countries realize the significance of academic development and provide large budgets for academic management. But there are many important issues, such as how to get maximum return on budget used, how to satisfy the needs of national development, and how to satisfy the expectations of society, all through effective academic management. It is thus a challenge to develop effective support systems for academic management that can provide information that is organized and easily accessible, information that is disclosed and published, information that can be shared among different academic units, and information that can be preserved for the long term. In this dissertation, I propose an approach to developing support systems for academic resource management that is derived from three principles: development of standard data models for interoperability, representation of data in the Resource Description Framework (RDF), and provision of methods to access data spread among diverse data sources. As a proof of concept for the proposed approach, we developed data models based on the Singapore Framework for Dublin Core Application Profiles. Support systems for research and teaching resource management were developed by extending OpenScholar, a Drupal CMS, to use Linked Open Data (LOD) technology. The resultant application profile was evaluated against widely used similar metadata schemas and requirements, and the profile was found to meet the collected requirements and to be more comprehensive than existing schemas. Furthermore, the application profile was deployed in a prototype support system, and the deployment was found to be successful. The prototype support system was evaluated by comparison with existing support systems, both worldwide and in Thailand. It was also evaluated by potential users according to standard information system metrics, and end users agreed that the prototype will support and enhance their activities, especially in developing interoperability and collaboration among academic units. The methodology elaborated in this dissertation will be useful for other system designers interested in developing cooperation across different agencies with disparate data sources. en_US
