www.ntis.gov National Technical Information Service NTIS Mission To promote progress, economic growth, and science and information by serving as the Federal Government’s central means of making scientific, technical, engineering and business information perpetually and widely available. “Maintain a permanent archival repository and clearinghouse for the collection and dissemination of nonclassified scientific, technical, and engineering information.” 15 USC 3710(d)(6) Collect, integrate and catalog scientific and technical information (STEI) from a variety of sources, foreign and domestic; and, disseminate this information to the public. Provide information management services to other federal agencies that help them interact with and better serve the information needs of their own constituencies.
www.ntis.gov Federal Science Repository Service (FSRS) NTIS Joint Venture (JV) with Information International Associates (IIa) Help multiple agencies develop repositories that: Are durable against technology changes, yet flexible Are based on standards Promote interoperability Promote further use of an agency’s content Can be tailored to an agency’s needs Support open government initiatives Support preservation and long-term access For more information: http://www.ntis.gov/services/fsrs.aspx http://www.ntis.gov/services/fsrs.aspx National Technical Information Service
www.ntis.gov The National Technical Reports Library Developed by NTIS and IIa under contract: NTRL Repository Version 1 (April 2009) Currently serves 2.5 million records Focus on federally funded technical reports 65 subscribers (academic, government, corporate, and international) Rich metadata Full text access to 630,000 docs and growing Version 2 Beta (R2) using Fedora delivered April 2011 and tested Production Version 3 (R3) using FSRS and implementing interface refinements and update processing due 1 st Quarter 2012. National Technical Information Service 5
www.ntis.gov The NOAA Deepwater Horizon Repository Developed by NTIS and IIa Joint Venture: Phase 1 to be completed end of October, release 4 th Quarter, 2011 Focus on NOAA’s Deepwater Horizon and other content from 2 specific NOAA programs 1000+ various resources (pdfs, images, video, audio) Rich metadata Storage of full text and media for ~ 60% of the resources; rest are outside links All resources available to the public Phase 2 – late spring 2012 Multiple NOAA programs and potentially other agencies Estimate 10,000+ resources Community-based access control (internal-only, agency- level, and public) National Technical Information Service
www.ntis.gov Main Features Underlying infrastructure of Fedora, Solr, and PHP Distributed-model architecture Different schemas mapped to FSRS Core Metadata Robust interface with advanced search, faceting, and full-text and media display Storage and preservation of objects/datastreams Fedora is based on the OAIS Reference Model Retain original and conversions of both metadata and objects as managed data streams Links to content outside the repository Supports a variety of security and access control methods National Technical Information Service

www.ntis.gov FSRS Technical Details National Technical Information Service PHP interface interacts with the Fedora server via the REST API Object manipulation via command line or Fedora Web Admin PHP “Core” metadata schema mapped to the MODS standard allows metadata extensions Solr 3.3 search engine with a custom schema adjusted for each repository Saxon XSLT and Fedora Content Model Architecture are utilized to create Dissemination Information Packages (DIPs)
www.ntis.gov Diverse resources across programs! Related Resources can be linked.
www.ntis.gov “Core” set defined to support interoperability both within and across repositories. Schema was based on research of standards for diverse media types: documents, images, video, …. Mapped to multiple standards (MODs, MARC, DC, and technical standards). Makes recommendations for fields that should be populated, especially for scientific and media-related information. The Core will support connection to Data.gov, Science.gov, and others. Along with the Core, an agency’s original metadata schema can also be stored for display or later use. The “Core” Metadata and Other Schemas National Technical Information Service 16
www.ntis.gov National Technical Information Service Review available functionality, identify requirements and new development, and phases/roadmap Analyze content and user needs Develop data/object model Analyze/develop metadata Make decisions about front end, search, etc. Support scrubbing of legacy content Convert data Custom interface design Integrate with other components Load, index, test Cycle back with changes Release The Development Process
www.ntis.gov Flexibility Utilizing Fedora’s modular architecture to implement: Different object/data models for different agencies Flexible metadata relationships and extensions Various front ends depending on agency requirements Various security requirements depending on agency requirements National Technical Information Service

www.ntis.gov The NOAA Deepwater Horizon Repository National Technical Information Service Different audience and purpose, increased diversity of resources Different metadata (MARC mapped to Core FSRS fields) Different search fields and filters Different fields shown in results Storage of full text and media for ~ 60% of the resources; rest are outside links. Original MARC XML also available. Phase 1 – prototype end of October; release Q4 2011 Phase 2 – late spring 2012 Additional media formats Additional features 24
