2 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology DSpace Vision (1999) A federated repository that makes available the collective intellectual resources of the world’s leading research institutions Mission Create a scalable digital archive that preserves and communicates the intellectual output of MIT’s faculty and researchers Support adoption by and federation with other research institutions

3 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology The DSpace Repository Institutional Repository for MIT faculty’s digital research materials MIT Libraries - Hewlett Packard collaborative development project Open Source system Federated system Preservation archive

4 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology DSpace is… An open source technology platform A service model for open access and/or digital archiving A platform for building an Institutional Repository A (proposed) federation of digital repositories across multiple academic research institutions A production service of the MIT Libraries to its local research community

5 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology DSpace Captures Digital research material in any formats directly from creators (e.g. faculty) Describes Descriptive, technical, rights metadata Persistent identifiers Distributes Searches metadata Delivers via Web, with necessary access control Preserves Large-scale, stable, managed long-term storage

6 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology DSpace Open source dynamic digital repository Visual Explanations by Dynamic Diagrams

7 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT Policies Communities = Labs, Department, Centers Faculty work (not students, administration) Research and teaching material Research can include externally authored works Joint ownership/responsibility Tiered preservation support Access to at least the MIT community

8 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology Possible Content Preprints, articles Technical Reports Working Papers Conference Papers E-theses Datasets e.g. statistical, geospatial, scientific Images visual, scientific, etc. Audio files Video files Learning Objects Digitized library collections

9 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology Service Model Core Services (free) Address the needs of the many Basic functionality and support Premium Services (for fee) Extraordinary resource demands Extra space, metadata consulting, digitization Control impact on library resources

10 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology Challenges Faculty Acceptance Valuing and trusting an institutional archive Cultural differences across disciplines Copyright/IP policies, attitudes Sustainability institutional, financial Digital Preservation

11 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology Faculty Acceptance Variety of content Preprints and publications Digital research material Educational material Support for discipline differences Access control, review process, etc. Institutional support Broad advocacy Mission relevance

12 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology Institutional Fit Look for local priorities, e.g. Open Access to faculty research publications? Other research material? Managing educational course content? Supporting digital archival collections? Electronic records administration? Managing digitized library collections?

13 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology Educational Materials Several course management systems Major investment from faculty, institution No reliable learning object repository Difficult to find, reuse material

14 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology OpenCourseWare “Make MIT course materials that are used in the teaching of almost all undergraduate and graduate subjects available on the Web, free of charge, to any user anywhere in the world.” “Course materials contained on the MIT OCW Web site may be used, copied, distributed, translated, and modified, but only for non-commercial educational purposes that are made freely available to other users under the same terms defined by the MIT OCW legal notice.”

15 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology OpenCourseWare Publication of all course content on the Web Faculty-authored 3 rd party produced Metadata based on IMS specifications DSpace will archive Entire course web sites Significant content or “learning objects” for discovery and reuse

16 November 5, 2003Massachusetts Institute of Technology Project Status Adoption Six “Communities” live Ten more in progress Revisiting policies re individual faculty, support Marketing program in development Sustainability Moving towards institutional support next year Project to “archive” OCW, other educational content
