DRIVER Institutional repositories and CRIS systems – the role of DRIVERs infrastructure, concepts and organisation 1 Nordbib Workshop 2008 Dale Peters, Scientific Technical Manager Göttingen State and University Library
2 DRIVER Vision Open Access –European and worldwide research output (publications and data sets ) in Open Access institutional repositories Interoperability –automated aggregation of all scholarly research output into one virtual open Information Space Open Content –service providers provide a wide range of end-user services to researchers (search, browse, profiling, visualisation, citation, impact metrics…) Integrate research outputs into e-Science workflow - without need to confront new tools.
Consortium Partners 3 … more global partners …..
7 Role in scholarly communication OA: re-conceptualisation of academic workflows New strategic alliances IR as tool for leverage for change Harvest overview of metadata and repository standards World-wide network of scientific repository content
Technology watch Connections with related infrastructure and digital library technologies DRIVER – CRIS interactions GRID technology infrastructures Long-term preservation Interoperability Enhanced publications 10 Acknowledgement : Mikael Karstens Elbaek Technical Information Centre of Denmark
Interactions with CRIS Current standards Community –driven use cases Interactions with DNET Information Space Outcomes for DRIVER 11
Current standards CERIF: Common European Research Information Format IR-CERIF: Task Group for Institutional Repositories 12 :To further the science and technology of the linkage between CRIS and repositories and specifically open access institutional repositories of publications[…] euroCRIS Newsflash, April 2008
Current standards CERIF DDF-MXD: Metadata Exchange Format for Documents 13
DDF- MXD 14 Descriptive elements –Title –Description –Publication information –Local information Relational elements –Person –Organisation –Project –Event the use of controlled vocabularies through XML schema validation of the used syntax enables the development of usefull search and filter features in the DDF search interface .   http://forskningsdatabasen.dk/ http://forskningsdatabasen.dk/ the use of controlled vocabularies through XML schema validation of the used syntax enables the development of usefull search and filter features in the DDF search interface .   http://forskningsdatabasen.dk/ http://forskningsdatabasen.dk/ …the use of controlled vocabularies through XML schema validation enables useful search and filter features in the DDF search interface… http://forskningsdatabasen.dk/
Current standards CERIF DDF-MXD: Metadata Exchange Format for Documents METIS SWAP: Scholarly Works Application Profile eSciDoc application profile 15
Use studies METIS –Heterogenic data - central database DDF-MXD –Homogenic data – central harvester Expertise Ireland –Integrated system 16
CRIS interactions with DNET Semantic interoperability –Dublin Core expressed in XML –Harvested by OAI-PMH protocol –RDF 19 …the ability of two or more systems or components to exchange information and to use the information that has been exchanged. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. IEEE Standard Computer Dictionary: A Compilation of IEEE Standard Computer Glossaries. New York, NY: 1990
CRIS interactions with DNET Semantics: Shared meaning Syntax –Machine communication, meaning intact Structure –Unambiguous syntax: cardinality, nesting, encoding scheme Protocol –Rules governing syntax and semantics, Synchronised communication 20
Structural metadata DRIVER context –Harvesting aggregating –Agreed descriptive metadata standards ( DC, METS, MODS) Link to complex data object/s –Deeper level of link between descriptive metadata and complex dataobject/s –Data object structure –Distributed location 21 Access to full text documents and related datasets
Outcomes for DRIVER DRIVER/D-NET shall implement functionality and user interfaces for creating and maintaining enhanced publications DRIVER-II shall follow the evolution of scholarly workbenches and innovative tools in scholarly communication 23
