1 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 DRIVER FOCUSED STUDIES Maurits van der Graaf and Kwame van Eijndhoven, The European Repository Landscape: Inventory study into present type and level of OAI compliant Digital Repository activities in the EU Kasja Weenink, Leo Waaijers and Karen van Godtsenhoven (eds.), A DRIVER's Guide to European Repositories: Five studies of important Digital Repository related issues and good Practices Muriel Foulonneau and Francis André (CNRS), Investigative study of standards for Digital Repositories and related services Open access, published by DRIVER (SURF / AUP)partners CNRS, UGhent, Ukoln, Gottingen, Bielefeld, Nottingham

2 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 THE EUROPEAN REPOSITORY LANDSCAPE Aim: a inventory of current state of digital repositories in the 27 countries of the EU Focus on OAI compliant; research output 114 repositories participated Key questions: Current state? Next steps to stimulate infrastructure at European level? Now presented: some results, main conclusions

3 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 Which statement best describes the work processes of depositing of materials in the repository? % Self depositing by academics, quality control by specialised staff members 28.1 Delivery by academics, depositing by specialized staff members26.3 Collected by staff members independent of the academics7.0 A combination of those28.1 Other Answers100.0 DEPOSTING PROCESSES VARY

4 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 ALSO LARGE VARIATION IN SOFTWARE Most frequently used GNU Eprints (24%) and DSpace (20%) Locally developed software packages are also frequently used (17%) 15 other software packages were mentioned by the respondents

5 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 NO SINGLE SEARCH ENGINE ACCESSING ALL DIGITAL REPOSITORIES The contents of your digital repository is searchable via the following general engines/gateways/portals: n% General internet search engines (Google, Yahoo etc.) OAIster Google Scholar Open DOAR OAI Search Scirus BASE OPUS OASE87.0 MetaGer76.1 MEIND65.3 Citeseer: Computer Science54.4 PLEIADI54.4 Other Answers

6 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 TOP 4 OF DESIRED SERVICES AT A EUROPEAN LEVEL General search engines, gateways and portals Disciplinary and thematic search engines, gateways and portals Citation index services Preservation services

7 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY FACTORS INFLUENCING THE DEVELOPMENT OF REPOSITORIES most important STIMULANTS% increased visibility and citations for the publications46.5 simple and user-friendly depositing process43.9 awareness-raising efforts among the academics i28.9 interest from the decision-makers within our institute26.3 most important INHIBITORS % lack of an institutional policy of mandatory depositing50.0 situation with regard to copyright49.1 lack of requirements of research funding organisations about depositing research output 27.2

8 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 TOWARDS A EUROPEAN AGENDA Two-tier approach: –Deployment of repositories at research institutions that do not have one yet. –Increasing coverage of research output of existing DRs Possible action points: –Increasing retrievability –Best practices for depositing processes –Nuanced approach to effective mandatory policies –Development of services (citation index; preservation) –Technical harmonisation by developing standards

9 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 A DRIVER'S GUIDE TO EUROPEAN REPOSITORIES Five studies of important Digital Repository related issues and Good practices The business of digital repositories Alma Swan, Key Perspectives Ltd.

10 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 A DRIVER'S GUIDE TO EUROPEAN REPOSITORIES Five specific, complex and longer term issues that are essential to the establishment, development or sustainability of a DR Relevant for repository managers, decision makers, funding agencies and infrastructure service providers Commonalities: –Inter- and transnational approach which is needed to come to solutions on a European or Global scale – Practical Solutions –Good practices and lessons learned

11 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 A DRIVER'S GUIDE TO EUROPEAN REPOSITORIES Chapter The business of Repositories Alma Swan: Aimed at those who are involved in planning, setting up and running a DR for an institution or community Covers making a business case, costs, staffing requirements, managing growth and change and other sustainability issues Based on several case studies across Europe

Desribes IPR in several European Countries Starting point in this article is the central position of the author

13 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 A DRIVER'S GUIDE TO EUROPEAN REPOSITORIES Chapter The population of repositories Vanessa Proudman 6 case studies that reflect different types of DR's and service models: –A university DR (Minho, Portugal) –A university School Repository + campus wide IR (Southampton) –A central archive Repository which brings together national Research results (HAL, France) –An international research organisation IR (CERN, Switzerland) –A subject specific service model built on IR content (Connecting Africa, the Netherlands) –A service which increases quality IR (Cream of Science, the Netherlands)

14 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 A DRIVER'S GUIDE TO EUROPEAN REPOSITORIES Chapter The population of repositories Vanessa Proudman Policy issues Organisational choices Establishment of repository or service Population mechanisms Take-up Advocacy Legal issues Sustainability

15 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 A DRIVER'S GUIDE TO EUROPEAN REPOSITORIES Chapter The population of repositories Vanessa Proudman 5 of 17 pointers; - Know your research community - Target advocacy activities - Be clear what Open Access stands for - Make collection development choices - Provide added value services

16 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 A DRIVER'S GUIDE TO EUROPEAN REPOSITORIES Chapter Data Curation René van Horik (DANS) Digital Object as a starting point –What is data curation ? –Relation data curation - data preservation –Modelling –Data curation tools and procedures

17 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 A DRIVER'S GUIDE TO EUROPEAN REPOSITORIES Chapter Long Term Preservation for Digital Repositories Barbara Sierman (KB) The rationale for Digital Preservation Digital Material OAIS Metadata Strategies Organisational Aspects

18 DRIVER SUMMIT GÖTTINGEN 17 JANUARY 2008 INVESTIGATIVE STUDY OF STANDARDS FOR DIGITAL REPOSITORIES AND RELATED SERVICES By Muriel Foulonneau and Francis André (CNRS) Analyzes the current implementations of interoperability standards in DR's. Identifies limitations of the standards currently used, and looks into the necessary future development of existing or new standards to resolve difficulties Describes other standards that are used (or being developed) in different environments Anticipates new challenges
