2 F ocus on A ccess to I nstitutional R esources Overview The UK Information Environment FAIR programme aims FAIR project clusters Institutional work – early lessons in the UK

3 F ocus on A ccess to I nstitutional R esources The UK Information Environment The JISC Information Environment will provide a range of services, tools and mechanisms for colleges and universities to exploit and share their own resources and the resources of others. Three main aspects to this provision: 1.User Focus: Customised value-added services will simplify the user’s experience of selected online resources – inclusion into local services 2.Technical Focus: Implementation of agreed standards and protocols – influencing commerce, national providers and creators 3.Collaboration: Primarily in the UK – British Library, NHS, Higher & Further Education, Museums and Public Libraries, E-Science Core Programme The IE is an essential interpreter of WWW and GRID technologies to the UK education sectors. Work sits alongside the developing UK Common Information Environment – JISC, The British Library, e-science Core, UKOLN, Resource, NHS Making technology meaningful demands content

4 F ocus on A ccess to I nstitutional R esources THE IE - Building Meaningful Content Portals - Informing and developing the use Digital Library Research – international and classroom use - NSF X4L – repurposing content for learning Learning and Teaching – supporting through digital resources Infrastructure – integration of access to digital resources Presentation – web environments that benefit users FAIR – access and sharing of institutional content

5 F ocus on A ccess to I nstitutional R esources FAIR – programme aims Explore the OAI protocol as a mechanism for disclosure and sharing a range of resource types: images, video clips, learning objects, finding aids, e-prints, e-theses Explore other mechanisms for disclosure Explore the challenges associated with disclosure and sharing, including IPR Test the delivery of disclosed information through established JISC services Investigate the balance between local and national management and archiving of resources

6 F ocus on A ccess to I nstitutional R esources FAIR – project clusters 14 Projects / 50 Institutions / £3million / 1-3 years EFAIR cluster DAEDALUS - Glasgow e-prints UK – RDN, King’s Electronic Theses – Robert Gordon HaIRST - Strathclyde SHERPA - Nottingham TARDIS - Southampton Theses Alive! - Edinburgh Museums and Images cluster Accessing the Virtual Museum - UCL BioBank Image Archive - Bristol Harvesting the FitzWilliam - Cambridge Hybrid Archives – AHDS, King’s Institutional Portals FAIR Enough - WCC PORTAL - Hull Romeo – Loughborough - ended

7 F ocus on A ccess to I nstitutional R esources Not just e-prints Institutional content of various kinds: e- prints, e-theses, e-learning materials etc. –HaIRST (Harvesting Institutional Resources in Scotland Testbed) – –DAEDALUS (Data providers for Academic E-content and the Disclosure of Assets for Learning, Understanding and Scholarship) – Plus e-theses, images and cultural objects –E-Theses Robert Gordon, ULL, The British Library, Aberdeen, Cranfield + Edinburgh, Glasgow –Museums Cambridge, UCL and AHDS at King’s:

8 F ocus on A ccess to I nstitutional R esources Addressing the problems RoMEO (Rights MEtadata for Open archiving) - end –Findings now at: RoMEO Studies 1: The impact of copyright ownership on academic author self-archiving RoMEO Studies 2: How academics wish to protect their open-access research paper RoMEO Studies 3: How academics expect to use open-access research papers RoMEO Studies 4: An analysis of Journal publishers' Copyright Agreements RoMEO Studies 5: IPR issues for OAI Data and Service Providers RoMEO Studies 6: Rights metadata for open-archiving TARDis (Targeting Academic Research for Deposit and Disclosure) –University of Southampton at: –investigating overcoming technical, cultural and academic barriers to institutional repositories –developing working model of multi-disciplinary institutional repository

9 F ocus on A ccess to I nstitutional R esources Publishing research SHERPA (Securing a Hybrid Environment for Research Preservation and Access) lead: University of Nottingham – Data Provider –to set up a series of institutional OAI-compliant e-print (pre and post-print) repositories using eprints.org software –to investigate key issues in populating and maintaining e-print collections, including advocacy in the research community –to work with Service Providers to achieve acceptable standards for metadata exchange and the dissemination of the content –to investigate OAIS-compliant digital preservation –to disseminate learning outcomes and advocacy materials, including providing detailed advice to others –Major news – OUP becomes the first publisher to work directly with the institutional pilot in the UK – October 2003

10 F ocus on A ccess to I nstitutional R esources Accessing research ePrints UK (Building a national metadata repository for e-prints) lead: RDN, King’s College London – Service Provider Partners: UKOLN at Bath, OCLC, Southampton, Leeds, Bristol, Heriot Watt, Birmingham, Manchester Metropolitan, Oxford, Nottingham, UMIST –To set up as a Service Provider gathering metadata from institutional, disciplinary and personal Data Providers –To enhance records, via web services, with: Automatic subject classification Authority headings Citation analysis resulting in OpenURL citations –To deliver search interfaces through RDN Hubs

11 F ocus on A ccess to I nstitutional R esources Institutional work – mid-term lessons UK Collection Management: –document type and format: e-prints / PDF etc –digital preservation policies: what and how? – UK centre coming… –submission procedures: how will files be formatted and then deposited? –IPR policies: the rights of the author, institution and publisher? –metadata quality standards: who creates metadata and according to what standards – Academic DC? –Subject schemas specific to digital environments – retrieval focused rather than storage –Economics of repositories med/long term? –Relationships with publishers (and their development teams) Biggest challenge is obtaining content – advocacy the key
