1 The EVIE Project Derek Sergeant Leeds University Library

2  Request: We need a quick overview of the EVIE project to communicate to new researchers  Provide one example of where the library is taking initiative in moving towards the University strategy

3 Presentation overview  Project introduction  Overview of the 10 WPs  User requirements analysis  Systems scoping  The next 12 months  Round up (WP4, 6, 10, 5)

4 EVIE Project overview  ‘Embedding a Virtual Research Environment in an Institutional Environment’  Funded by JISC under their Virtual Research Environments programme  Runs from Nov 04 – Nov 06  Partners: University of Leeds, The British Library

5 EVIE Project overview  Researchers expect to go online to perform research-associated tasks  Tools to enable these are available, but via widely varied systems

6 Typical campus research systems landscape

7 EVIE brings order to this chaos

8 Key benefits  Easier authentication and authorisation across a range of different systems  Easier navigation of the local research environment  Tailored content ‘pushed’ at the user  Increased data integration  Improved awareness of tools

9 The components  Built using Luminis portal framework  Based on open standards, content and services can be ‘plugged-in’ to the environment  Enables single-sign-on, secure access, customisation and tailoring of content

10 The 10 work-packages  WP1 Ensure the project runs smoothly  WP2 User requirements analysis  WP3 Systems scoping/design  WP4 Digital preservation requirements  WP5 Resource discovery and document visualisation  WP6 Taxonomy  WP7 Simplified-sign-on, channel development  WP8 Implementation and deployment  WP9 Evaluation and dissemination  WP10 Collaborative tools
