1 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 1 LIBER 37th Annual Conference, Istanbul, 3 July 2008 DRIVER: Building a sustainable infrastructure of (European) Scientific Repositories Norbert Lossau, Scientific Coordinator Göttingen State and University Library

2 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 2 The Berlin Declaration requests Free and unrestricted access to sciences and human knowledge representation worldwide (October 2003) Needs a global, interoperable, trusted, long- term repository infrastructure DRIVER has built the nucleus of this infrastructure

3 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 3 DRIVERs vision All research institutions in Europe and worldwide make all their research publications openly accessible through institutional repositories Guidelines, certificates and technology ensure the automated aggregation of all publications into one virtual open knowledge base Content (i.e. data index) is open for service providers to provide a wide range of end-user services to researchers (such as search, browsing, profiling, visualisation, citation and impact metrics, etc.) APIs enable the linking and interaction of publications with any type of digital data and objects (e.g. primary data, films, language recordings, learning courses, digital artefacts etc.)

4 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 4 General Information: DRIVER II Duration: 24 months Budget: 2.7 m EUR Timeplan: 12/07 -11/09 Main Deliverables: – Digital Repository Infrastructure – European Digital Repository Confederation Funded by the European Commission, Research Infrastructure Unit, FP 7 Consortium Partners – Univ.of Athens (GR) – Univ. of Bielefeld (GE) – CNR-ISTI (IT) – STICHTING SURF (NL) – Univ. of Nottingham (UK) cont… – Univ. of Bath (UK) – Univ. of Warszawski (PO) – Univ. of Gent (BE) – Univ. of Goettingen (GE) – Danish Technical University (DK) – Universidade do Minho (PT) – Narodna in univerzitetna knijznica (SLO)

5 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 5 DRIVER History DRIVER (I), started 1 June 2006, ended 30 November 2007 DRIVER II, started 1 December 2007, ends 30 November 2009 Recent event: DRIVER Summit 16/17 January 2008, Göttingen

6 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 6 DRIVER II activity areas and outcomes Open Source Software for repository networks Technical Digital Repository Network Infrastructure Services Organization of Digital Repository Infrastructure Providers Community Building & Maintenance Confederation D-NET DR Infrastructure DRIVER Portal & Wiki

7 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 7 DRIVER: An European Community of (national) repository networks What does community mean? Members agree to some fundamental principles –Make research publications openly available –Become partner in a repository service network –Follow guidelines to make data and services interoperable –Ensure long-term access to an institutions research publications –More to come… Note: DRIVER Community is wider than the DRIVER Consortium, (the Community has no legal restrictions and is open for new members)

8 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 8 DRIVER: Establishes a Confederation of National and Disciplinary Repository Communities Tasks and questions to be addressed: Build an organisation which exists beyond the duration of a DRIVER project Establish a new, independent legal body or merge with an existing organisation? Define a set of joint principles for the Confederation Liaise with repository communities from all continents and with disciplinary communities <=DRIVER Advisory Board established on the 2 July in Istanbul

9 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 9 D-NET Software: DRIVER Network- Evolution-Toolkit Version 1.0 released under the Open Source Apache License to the public on the 20 June 2008 The DRIVER Infrastructure Software includes: Repository network administration software (such as the Repository Network Manager, Resource Monitoring) End-user services (Search, Browse, Profiling) Support service to local repository managers and aggregators (Validation Tool)

10 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 10 DRIVER Infrastructure First implementation in operation: European Information Space, maintained by the DRIVER Consortium (see the DRIVER website) Supports three groups of users: 1.The repository manager 2.The service provider 3.The researcher, reader, public

14 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 14 DRIVER Software and Infrastructure Possible deployment use cases, examples: Countries, communities or organisations using the existing DRIVER instance, e.g. by customising the portal (DART Europe, RECOLECTA) Countries running an additional, independent instance of a DRIVER infrastructure National aggregators or local repositories using the DRIVER Validator Tool Current challenge to the DRIVER Consortium –Limited capacity for technical support

19 How can a single repository become a member of the DRIVER community? The concept of DRIVER sees national communities as the basis and as natural partners for the European repository network Contact the DRIVER Wiki and find out about your national contact point(s) (correspondents) to the DRIVER community –Become a member of your existing national community OR –Support the building of a national community within your country (see also DRIVER Mentoring Service) In case there is no correspondent: register your interest on the DRIVER website to –Become a member of the DRIVER community

20 How does DRIVER relate to national repository communities? National communities are usually represented by country correspondents –One institution or a group of institutions takes responsibility to build a national repository community (like DARENet-NL, SHERPA-UK, OA-Netzwerk-GE, RECOLECTA-ES, HAL-FR) Country correspondents … –Maintain the national repository information on the DRIVER Wiki –Organise repository events in their countries –Translate repository guidelines and other relevant information into national languages –Build up national data aggregators, clean data, can offer additional services

23 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 23 Do national repository communities have to deploy DRIVER software (D-NET)? NO. D-NET has been developed as technically advanced, open source toolkit for re-use by repository networks. Deployment guarantees interoperability, saves costs and time, but not mandatory. BUT: Data and services have to support interoperability (see the DRIVER Guidelines)

24 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 24 How does DRIVER relate to international repository communities? DRIVER sees its mission as –Catalyst for a global repository infrastructure –Develop and maintain the European repository infrastructure node DRIVER liaises already with institutions and initiatives from the U.S., Latin America, China, Japan, India and Africa DRIVER collaborates with eIFL, the library support organisation for developing countries DRIVER liaises with the Object Reuse and Exchange (ORE) project and SPARC, U.S.

25 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 25 Benefits of joining the DRIVER community You will contribute to the successful implementation of Open Access by joining a powerful, cross-country community Your researchers require an international infrastructure Local institutions and countries research output becomes visible as part of a common international knowledge base Funding and research organisations can build their own interface on the DRIVER data index to demonstrate their efforts You will share in developments by service providers

26 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 26 What makes DRIVER sustainable? DRIVER partners assume responsibility for the DRIVER objectives Strong natural incentives (beyond funding) to build an international repository community DRIVER embedded in national communities DRIVER has built alliances with strong partners (LIBER, SPARC Europe) DRIVER Confederation as permanent organisational backbone DRIVER is liaising with all relevant stakeholders ( funders, EUA, repository platform and technology developers, publishers) DRIVER is reaching out to build a global repository community and network

27 LIBER Annual Conference, 2008, Istanbul 27 Further actions needed … Lobby for Open Access mandates from all funding organisations Revise contracts with (STM) publishers – build Open Access consortia: –convert current subscription payments to subscription + institution-wide green road IR deposit permission (cf. pilot Springer Open Choice agreements) –agree on automated article transfer from the publisher to institutional repositories (European PEER project) –Develop automated metadata transfer workflows from article databases into institutional repositories (e.g PubMed > Fact Science research database) Support Open Access journal publishing Support Open Access book publishing (European OAPEN project) Develop and support new types of citation & impact measuring services Develop and provide long-term archiving services for repositories…
