1 Federated digital libraries in the field of Aquatic Sciences OceanDocs Aquatic Commons - Avano Marc Goovaerts Coordinator OceanDocs Staff member Information Technology Hasselt University Library D4Science, Rome – FAO Thursday, November

2 Overview 1.Repository Development at IOC/IODE 1.OdinPubAfrica 2.OceanDocs 2.Aquatic Commons 3.AVANO

3 1.1. OdinPubAfrica An African repository for marine science

4 OdinPubAfrica A FUST project of IOC (Aug – Aug. 2006) coordinated by Hasselt University and supported by the Flemish government in the framework of OdinAfrica /iodeweb1.vliz.be/odin/ /iodeweb1.vliz.be/odin/

5 The goals of OdinPubAfrica Facilitate publishing of research findings by African scientists (e-journal as well as e-archive) thereby promoting African research and increasing access by African scientists to the international research forum Make scientific publications in the field of marine science and oceanography in Africa more easily and freely accessible Enhance the internal scientific communication Develop an OAI-compliant repository providing access to full-text publications created by scientists affiliated to African institutes (with 1500 documents at the end of the project)

6 Development of OdinPubAfrica Training : –Local coordinators (16 information managers) –Appointment of 2 DSpace administrators: West-Africa – French East-Africa - English –Support by UHasselt and IOC –OdinPubAfrica – training material at: Implementation at institute level: –Agreement of the management –Implementation of an institutional repository policy = most difficult part = the result of the work of the information managers of OdinAfrica

7 1.2. OceanDocs

8 From OdinPubAfrica to OceanDocs Repository development has been identified as a major goal by IOC Information management training sessions Interest of ODIN communities: OdinCarsa – OdinCindio – OdinECET – … Two-level approach is unavoidable –Institutes have their own repository –The oceanographic collection will be a part of a larger institutional repository –The OceanDocs Central will be available for smaller institutes and institutes with limited internet capacity

9 OceanDocs Network IODE related repositories: 1.OceanDocs (31 institutes from Africa and Latin America) Repositories with the same software: –IBSS(Sevastopol – Ukraine): –CEEMAR (http://www.ceemar.org/) – 11 institutes – Eastern Europehttp://www.ceemar.org/ 3.Related institutional repositories: NIO (Goa-India): - On DSpacehttp://drs.nio.org/ ODINPimris (http://pimrisregional.library.usp.ac.fj/ ) – on Greenstone - ± 15 institutes - South Pacifichttp://pimrisregional.library.usp.ac.fj/

10 Statistics OceanDocs –Records: 2797 –Downloads: Africa: 2008: : L. America: 2008: : Most visited collection: –In Africa: Institut National des Sciences et Technologies de la Mer, Tunisia. ( downloads) –In Latin America: Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo Pesquero, Argentina. ( downloads) Since May 27, See

11 Software Development Based on the following assumptions: 1.Open source software repository package: DSpace 2.Use of community standards 3.Cooperation with organizations with similar goals: FAO - Agris DSpace – Thesaurus plug-in 4.Development of integration tools DSpace Harvester function (2010) 5.Support for setting up repositories: Easy-to-install version

12 Need of standards OceanDocs Supports 1.Metadata: DC – QDC (Standard DSpace) MODS AGRIS AP – (FAO) METS – DIDL – RDF (Standard DSpace) 2.Thesauri - Classifications ASFA

13 OceanDocs on DSpace Available in December 2009

14 2. Aquatic Commons Repository developed by IAMSLIC

15

16 IAMSLIC Network Worldwide organization of libraries and information centres related to aquatic and marine sciences and their allied disciplines 325 members from 86 countries Services: –Union list of serial holdings in members libraries –IAMSLIC Z39.50 Distributed Library (common search interface to the holdings of over 84 marine science libraries) –Aquatic Commons – Since 2006

17 Aquatic Commons Repository offered to any marine or aquatic researcher to deposit full text of research –No repository at host institution –Host institution cannot implement a repository –Not covered by ODIN OceanDocs programme –Complementary to OceanDocs –Working with OceanDocs

18 3. AVANO Harvester for Aquatic and Marine Science IFREMER

19

20 OAI harvester for marine and aquatic sciences - AVANO Developed by Fred Merceur, Ifremer / Biblioth è que La P é rouse As of November 2009, contained records harvested from more than 200 open archives and 2 commercial editors Designating Avano as the official harvester for –IOC/IODE - OceanDocs –the Aquatic Commons Initiative. IAMSLIC proposal: –thematic harvester offering federated searching across: repositories, IAMSLIC s Z39.50 distributed library the union database of marine serials and the ASFA database

21 Repositories in Aquatic Sciences Two major projects: –Aquatic Commons (IAMSLIC) –OceanDocs (IOC/IODE) ! Need for submissions + Many other repositories and digital collections One Harvester AVANO Basis for extra services: –Integrated search tools –Linking between publication(s) and data (OdinAfrica ?)

22 Thank you for your attention.
