7 7 December 2006 / 7 Multiple versions – experience of readers

8 7 December 2006 / 8 Differentiating between multiple versions

9 7 December 2006 / 9 How are versions handled in open access repositories?

11 7 December 2006 / 11 ArXiv – versions linked through metadata

12 7 December 2006 / 12 Scoping Study on Repository Version Identification (RIVER) Led by Rightscom Ltd with partners London School of Economics and Political Science Library, University of Oxford Computing Services Final report to JISC Scholarly Communications Group, March

13 7 December 2006 / 13 RIVER Defined two broad classes of requirement for version identification: Collocation Disambiguation – Identifying that two digital objects which happen to share certain attributes […] have no contextually meaningful relationship – Understanding the meaning of the relationship between two digital objects where one exists [without inspecting and comparing the objects themselves] Defined a tentative typology of versions covering both time-based version relationships and others

14 7 December 2006 / 14 RIVER - recommendations Recommendations to JISC for further work: More detailed survey into development plans for repositories and awareness of versioning Research definitive sets of version identification requirements Produce a more robust set of taxonomies from tentative and draft versions Develop framework policies for use by institutions and for interoperability Recommendations to universities (institutional repository managers) Develop IR policy on version identification Develop guidance for users (both depositing authors and searchers) Consider instituting workflow-based version management in IR Consider needs for access to repository content through search engines – eg, staging page carrying unambiguous version metadata

15 7 December 2006 / 15 Eprints Application Profile Working Group Carried out within JISC Digital Repositories Programme, led by Julie Allinson (UKOLN) and Andy Powell (Eduserv Foundation) Approach based on FRBR and the DCMI Abstract Model Provides more detail and structure than simple Dublin Core FRBR approach allows for representation of relationships between versions Work carried out June-August 2006 with follow up to take place through a DC Task Group

16 7 December 2006 / 16 FRBR – a hierarchical model Work – expression – manifestation - item On a practical level, the degree to which bibliographic distinctions are made between variant expressions of a work will depend to some extent on the nature of the work itself, and on the anticipated needs of users. Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records: Final Report. IFLA Study Group on the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records. Approved by the Standing Committee of the IFLA Section on Cataloguing. K.G.Saur, München 1998 UBCIM Publications – New Series Vol 19.
