1 NORA – The Norwegian Experience Presentation to the DRIVER Summit, Göttingen January 16th – 17th 2008 Jan Erik Frantsvåg, NORA Project Manager

2 What is NORA NORA = Norwegian Open Research Archives A collaberation between universities, colleges and research institutes in Norway NORA harvests and presents metadata from all known OAI-PMH compliant repositories in academic Norway on a daily basis Has developed tools for letting also non-OAI- PMH compliant repositories transfer metadata to NORA – thus making them OAI-PMH- harvestable

3 Present status documents 15 repositories –6 universities –1 business school –3 colleges –4 research institutes –1 directorate About 30 universities/colleges coming soon (2008)

4 Functionality Advanced search –Text based –Subject based Choice of –Archive –Year(s) of publication –Language –Document types Peer review status (Reviewed/Not reviewed)

5 Harvesting Daily from all repositories Selected by Document type –Only certain document types are harvested –Only metadata pertaining full-text documents are harvested

6 Metadata Metadata standards are the crucial point in creating a nationwide common search facility and gateway to institutional repositories NORA has developed a common metadata model used by all repositories Definitions, common understanding and common practices are developed by discussions through NORA A common, simple subject classification scheme makes subject-based search possible

7 Capabilities NORA offers RSS feeds based on advanced searches –This enhances local capabilities NORA is not openly harvestable, but can be harvested on a by appointment basis, e.g. by –(International) Subject based repositories –Plagiarism checkers Harvesting by the National Library to ensure long term archiving and preservation (near future)

8 Experiences Co-operation is difficult –Different needs Document types a major discussion point –Different possibilities No common software platform, though DSpace is common to nearly all – but 2 major stakeholders have other systems –Different practices Different perceptions of scholarly Metadata are difficult –Standards are on paper only – local understanding and use are differing
