1 The DRIVER Project D igital R epositories I nfrastructure V ision for E uropean R esearch

2 Facts DRIVER I –FP6 funding –18 months (June 2006 – November 2007) –Studies to identify current European repository environment and best practice –Focus on textual documents and institutional repositories –Development of DRIVER Guidelines –Develop DRIVER Infrastructure and a demonstration search service based on the testbed countries (Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, UK)

3 Partners Univ. of Athens (Greece) Univ. of Göttingen Library (Germany) CNR-ISTI (Italy) SURF (the Netherlands) Univ. of Nottingham (SHERPA, UK) CNRS (France) UKOLN (UK) ICM (Poland) Univ. of Ghent Library (Belgium) Univ. of Bielefeld Library (Germany)

4 DRIVER Studies The European Repository Landscape: inventory study into present type and level of OAI compliant Digital Repository activities in the EU by Maurits van der Graaf & Kwame van Eijndhoven A DRIVERS Guide to European Repositories by Kasja Weenink, Leo Waaijers & Karen van Godtsenhoven Investigative Study of Standards for Digital Repositories and Related Services by Muriel Foulonneau & Francis Andre

5 DRIVER Guidelines Based on the DINI certification in Germany DARE guidelines in the Netherlands With input from other repository networks, such as HAL in France and SHERPA in the UK Compliance with the Guidelines will improve available metadata. This combined with the DRIVER Infrastructure will simplify and facilitate the use of this metadata by service providers

6 DRIVER Infrastructure OAI-PMH Institution Site OAI-PMH Institution Site … Aggregator Information Space Index Search Index UI … Institution Site

7 DRIVER Services DRIVER aims to support the re-use of content held in repositories Hence end services in themselves are not the primary purpose DRIVER Search service –Usability study (n=67 (UK = 26)) –PhD and above, –most familiar with OA –Over half deposit their work in IRs –Liked: access Grey literature –Would like: More content

8 DRIVER Services DRIVER aims to support the re-use of content held in repositories Hence end services in themselves are not the primary purpose DRIVER Search service DRIVER Validator Tool DRIVER Mentor Service

9 DRIVER Community & Support DRIVER Website(s) –Project –Support –Test Search demo site and access to infrastructure DRIVER Wiki –Particularly popular with national networks in early stages of development DRIVER Advocacy –Stakeholder analysis –Advocacy materials –Attendance at conferences

10 Facts DRIVER II –FP7 funding –24 months (Dec 2007 – November 2009) –Expansion of infrastructure beyond the testbed to EU repository network –Continue to develop the infrastructure and search and other services –Focus expanded to include compound items and other types of repositories –Confederation for European Digital Repositories
