Introduction to the Cooperation between CAS and DRIVER National Science Library,CAS Jianxia Ma Xiaolin Zhang Zhongming Zhu DRIVER Confederation Summit Ghent/Belgium 20th. Oct, 2009
Outline Background : –What is CAS –NSL and some of it s responsibility –NSL s international cooperation CAS IR Grid Current Status and Future Consideration of OAI metadata harvester system Why DNET Requirements Testing Future expectations
Background : What is CAS Founded on Nov. 1, 1949 Highest academic institution in natural sciences in China Most comprehensive R&D center in natural sciences and high-tech development Highest national advisory body in S &T
NSL and some of it s responsibility NSL Library system of CAS As Knowledge Organizer and Curator of CAS, we have the responsibility to organize, coordinate and support institutes and researchers to create, organize, preserve and communicate their knowledge outputs, and to organize and to make use of these information as components of CAS s knowledge assets. As knowledge Officer of CAS, we have obligation to provide necessary technical platform, running mechanism and policy instruction for institutes and scientists, in order to promote open access of science and technology information.
NSLs international cooperation As a part of NSL s twelfth fifth-year strategic plan, we are developing operational international cooperation. This is not only included academic exchange but also included practional cooperation in resource development and service. For example, DRIVER, COAR Safe Places Network (National Library of the Netherlands KB ) LOCKSS (Stanford Univ.) Our aim is integration into the world, developing internationalized capacity of service.
CAS IR Grid Current Status In 2007, the CAS Institutional Repository Grid was brought forth Each institute establishes its own local repositories as a node of the Grid –NSL constructs a centralized metadata repository, which could harvest the metadata of academic resources stored in many distributed institutional repositories –NSL also keeps an integrated search interface for the resources and provides other enriched services
Targets of CAS IR Grid providing the organizational and technological framework for a CAS-wide IR infrastructure for research –helping every institutes set up their own IRs to increase the visibility, and preserve their research outputs –implementing a harvester-based cross-repository search and browse service to enhance exposure of the CASs research output as a whole –making the GRID ready for becoming building blocks for national or international wide repository infrastructure

We have two steps to build our IR Grid –Step One: Building Institutional Repositories in Institutes –Step Two: Building the Federated Repository for the whole Academy
Step One: Building Institutional Repositories in Institutes Four tasks we have done –Select the institute and set up examples for other institutes to follow –Develop IR based on DSpace –Integrate with the existing system (such as ARP) –Help the institute plan and implement IR There are 39 Institutes signed the agreement and 29 Institutes have deployed IR, Some Institutes have already have data.
Step Two: Building the Federated Repository for the whole Academy Three tasks need to be done –Deploy the IRs and Spread the IRs to institutes across the country –Develop OAI metadata harvester system to harvest metadata from IRs in institutes to NSL center repository –Develop value-added and augmented services
Some consideration of OAI metadata harvester system OCLC open source software OAI Harvester 2.0 are selected to be extended and integrated into DSpace via a way of plugin DRIVERs open-source D-Net toolset are also considered whether it will be a better option for us
Why DNET Open source Open infrastructure 2 years experience deployed in DRIVER Cooperation between CAS and DRIVER
Requirements(1) Stable, robust and flexible function Localization/internationalization –Built-in mechanism for supporting localization/internationalization easily (interface, indexing and searching) Support harvesting of a target repository which exposes its metadata with a customized metadata format
Requirements(2) have a plug-in or add-on based design of supporting extended development –we may want to provide services as generating knowledge directories or maps at different granularity level, co-operation networks of institutions or individuals, and other significant semantic enhanced services Detailed updated handbook about technical architecture and structure
Testing 1.DNET Foreground: 1)Driver Search interface 2)Validator Web Interface: 2.DNET Background: 1)Repository Manager Interface: 2)Aggregator Manager Interface 3.We are looking forward to the stable edition DNET1.2
Future expectations Investigation of DNET As a member of COAR, we hope to get techniques, tools, resources and training support. The fees of COAR should take into consideration of the capacity of every member NSL hope to take part in the Advisory Board of COAR
