1 The DRIVER Infrastructure (Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research) Paolo Manghi ISTI - National Research Council, Italy

2 Scenario Proliferation of Institutional Repositories Gathering and exposing research outcome (publications) local to the Institution Typical user communities requirements Discover information, e.g. cross-repository search Elaborate information, e.g. cross-comparison, object composition (e.g. complex objects) Communities demand for Aggregative Digital Library Systems, to be provided by the responsible organization

3 Aggregative Digital Library Systems (ADLS) ADLSs Aggregation system: maintaining and populating an Information Space by aggregating content from a collection of OAI-PMH Repositories Custom application: providing community-specific functionalities via Web User Interfaces Well known examples BASE (Germany) DAREnet (Netherlands) OAIster (USA) Others…

4 ADLS architecture and technology OAI-PMH Institution Site OAI-PMH Institution Site OAI-PMH Institution Site … Aggregator Index UI … Store … Search Custom application Aggregation system

5 ADLS drawbacks OAI-PMH Institution Site OAI-PMH Institution Site OAI-PMH Institution Site … Aggregator Index UI … Custom application Aggregation system Store … Search OAI-PMH New Institution Site New New functional requirement Manual maintenance cost

6 The DRIVER project goals Realization of the European Information Space for Open Access research publications Provide research communities with free and easy access to this Information Space User portals User applications

7 The DRIVER project goals Aggregation System European OA Information Space Aggregation System European OA Information Space Application OAI-PMH Repositories Sharing!

8 The DRIVER project solution Infrastructural approach An infrastructure is a running environment Maintained by one responsible organization (RO) for the benefit of participating organizations (POs) Where resources – e.g. content, functionality, hardware – can be shared by POs and reused by other POs so as to serve their application needs In DRIVER resources are implemented as (wrapped behind) Web Services Running at different sites on the Internet Providing functionality in isolation; e.g. index, storage, aggregation, search

9 DRIVER Infrastructure Service-Oriented Architecture The RO manages Enabling Services, a middleware for the management of the infrastructure Information Service: registration, de-registration and discovery of running services Services are dynamic: join/leave & discovery of available resources POs can Provide (register) and share resources in the form of running services Build applications combining (discovering and reusing) available resources, i.e. set of running services, to provide the expected functionality

14 Resource Orchestration The Enabling Services give support for service orchestration functionalities The RO can configure special orchestration services to automatically administrate and monitor an PO applications Based on subscription and notification

18 DRIVER Infrastructure benefits Architecture enabling sustainable business models Openness: enabling extension/update/integration of content and functionality resources Scalability: in content, functionality and users Sharing: communities can share their resources and reuse others to fulfil their needs Low application installation, maintenance and administration cost

19 DRIVER production infrastructure Project goals ? Enabling Layer Data Layer EU Open Access Repositories Functionality Layer Administrators End users Advanced User Interfaces Light User Interfaces PO RO

20 Status of production infrastructure Content 200+ harvested repositories (more than twice to come) over 23 countries More than 1,000,000 open access documents Services 28 different kinds of Services Production release: 36 service running instances over 9 nodes located at CNR and ICM Applications DRIVER Main, Belgium, Spain-Recolecta

21 Conclusion and future issues The benefits of the infrastructural approach are proved by the growing requests for Low-cost deployment of new applications Experimentation of deployment of new infrastructure instances (China, India, Portugal, Belgium, Spain, Slovenia)
