1 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October IRIScotland and the Repository Landscape Philip Hunter Project Manager 'Institutional Repository Infrastructure for Scotland'

2 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October The Menu Some Background to the Project What we have done so far The OAI Repository Architecture The IRIScotland Portal What researchers think The Repository Landscape

3 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October IRIScotland was originally proposed by the Scottish Confederation of University and Research Libraries (SCURL), the National Library of Scotland and others. was conceived as a means to provide the organisational and technological framework for a Scotland-wide institutional repository infrastructure for research.

4 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October IRIScotland is building a pilot repository hosting service to make it possible for Scottish institutions that may not wish to set up their own repositories to increase the visibility of their research output The hosting service may be developed beyond the life of the project by the NLS

5 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October IRIScotland Is also implementing a harvester-based pilot cross-repository search and browse service to enhance exposure of the Scottish research output as a whole – a framework applicable to any regional or subject groupings that might become building blocks for a UK-wide digital repository infrastructure

6 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October IRIScotland seeks to bring about cultural and organisational changes by developing, in close co-operation with researchers and senior administrators, institutional policies, procedures and workflows conducive to open access publishing and self-archiving with a view to encouraging the rapid population of institutional repositories The project is employing an empirical, rather than an ideological approach

7 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October What have we done so far? Created a website and a project wiki Experimented with two repository softwares (DSpace and Fedora) Produced a Position Paper on the relative merits of DSpace and Fedora for a pilot hosting repository service (26 April 2006) Member of DSpace Users Group (UK DSUG) Member of Fedora Users Group

8 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October What have we done so far? Conducted a successful nationwide survey of awareness of and attitudes to institutional repositories (15 th March – 25 th April 2006) We are developing a metadata format for a nationwide network of repositories (workpackage 5: CDLR) Participated in the UK ePrints UK metadata application profile working group Informally surveyed materials available in Scotland which might better be accessed through a Scottish research portal Informally surveyed materials of Scottish relevance which are available internationally

9 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October What have we done so far? Created the pilot hosting repository service using DSpace (NLS) Created a Fedora implementation Created the IRIScotland search service (CDLR) Discussions with Cambridge Science Abstracts on future developments in scientific communication, and possible futures for the technology (in conjunction with PerX) Discussions with Blackwells on the possibility of using CrossRef tools for the IRIScotland repository

10 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October What have we done so far? We are developing a toolkit on workflows, good practice, institutional requirements, and cultural change (all project partners) Workshop and conference dissemination - WWW2006 (Edinburgh), EThOs workshop day (Glasgow), Electric Connections (Dundee), a press demo, etc. Publication of survey analysis in OCLC Systems and Services, Spring 2007 this year we will run focus group discussions, which will feed into the final version of the toolkit, and the refinement of the IRIScotland portal.

11 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October The OAI Repository Architecture Data providers Service providers Harvesting based on OAI-PMH

12 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October IRIScotland Scope Why Scotland? Why a geographic scope? One harvester, many repositories? Tiered repository services Tiered repository network architecture Quality Assurance (metadata records) Record normalisation Name authority services (outside scope) Multilingual cross-walks (outside scope) National service seen as part of an international repository architecture

14 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October Pilot Hosting Repository

15 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October IRIScotland Search

16 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October Pilot Hosting Repository

17 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October Fedora Development Riding two development horses DSpace implementation a proof of concept for the hosting repository Fedora development now well advanced but not publicly available yet Main current work is on the deposit interface and management of the underlying workflow 3 species of deposit envisaged (normal, quick and mediated) Some synergies with the PROSPERO project repository (same building)

18 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October What researchers think Survey conducted in two main phases March to May 2006 Covered research authors, university administrators, library directors, and technical implementers Analysis will be published in OCLC: Systems and Services, and in the IRIScotland toolkit Practicalities of the survey (every university is different; third party online survey tools are quirky)

19 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October The Survey

26 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October The Repository Landscape UK Intute Repository Search and Depot

27 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October The Repository Landscape UK IRIScotland and eThOS The Harvesting Question: who harvests who? Business models: IRIScotland and the Scottish Digital Library Consortium

28 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October The Repository Landscape (UK)

29 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October The Repository Landscape (Europe) DRIVER Project DRIVER meets the three key strategic objectives of the EC programme for research infrastructures: a) it optimises the use of the technical infrastructure GEANT by delivering all types of content resources, b) it contributes to the creation of a new Europe wide infrastructure for knowledge and c) it aggregates and presents the knowledge base of European research to the world. DRIVER will deliver content resources, i.e. any form of scientific output, including scientific/technical reports, working papers, pre-prints, articles and original research data. The vision, to be accomplished in a second phase, is to establish the successful interoperation of both data network and knowledge repositories as integral parts of the E-infrastructure for research and education in Europe. Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research

30 Open Scholarship Conference, Glasgow, October The Repository Landscape (Europe) DRIVER Project (press release) ….The project is a joint collaboration between ten international partners with the intention to create a knowledge base of European research. DRIVER will put a testbed in place across Europe to assist the development of a knowledge infrastructure for the European Research Area. The project will develop over the next 18 months, building upon existing institutional repositories and networks, from countries including the Netherlands, Germany, France, Belgium and the UK. The aim is for one large scale virtual content resource to be created to access and integrate individual repositories. DRIVER will also prepare for the future expansion and upgrade of the Digital Repository infrastructure across Europe and will ensure the widest possible user involvement. https://arl.org/Lists/SPARC-OAForum/Message/ B/DRIVER_GeneralPressRelease_EN1.pdf
