UKOLN is supported by: Digital Repositories Roadmap: looking forward The JISC/CNI Meeting, July 2006 Rachel Heery Assistant Director R&D, UKOLN A centre of expertise in digital informaion management
Summary Vision for 2010 Where we are now Way forward –Closer look at Deposit
Aims Digital Repositories Roadmap Rachel Heery, UKOLN Andy Powell, Eduserv Foundation April To inform JISCs planning of integrated repositories network To support JISCs repository funding calls Aspirational to stimulate discussion Working document, things change
A week is a long time in politics…. First call for JISC Capital Programme repository related projects June deadline Funding for RDN/Intute repository aggregator
Work started to develop ePrints Dublin Core Application Profile May 2006
Research Councils UK updated position statement on access to research outputs, June Encouraging deposit of articles published in journals and conference proceedings Devolving power of mandate to individual RCs Initiating further consultation
Vision 2010 Richer scholarly communication based on open access to and re-use of scholarly materials Integrated life-cycle of knowledge from research to learning Available metadata about scholarly materials Added value services on scholarly materials (involving HE and commercial sectors)
More repositories and more content! Working papers, primary data, audiovisual, images Hardware in research labs will automatically deposit experimental data Desktop tools will deposit content Rich data flow between networks of repositories Rich data flows between repositories and other components in information landscape National and institutional preservation strategies in place!
Repository interworking with other components repository Repository Virtual Learning Environment Authoring tool Name authority service Institutional research system Automated classification service Packaging tool
Where are we now?
Scholarship today? OA landscape
Repository ecology Institutional Repository Departmental repository Authoring tool Subject repositories Institutional research system Data Centres Learned society repositories Laboratory repository Experimental machine Aggregators: OAIster, Google Regional, national Text mining tools Terminology services Research council repositories
Defining workflows and dataflows Analyse roles and interactions within and beween repositories What does the user want? Identify and define services –Potential for shared services, re-use of services –In context of JISC e-Framework Explore potential dataflows –Aggregation, data exchange, metadata extraction and enhancement
Deposit a priority! To enable users to populate repositories simply, effectively and preferably automatically To capture content from desktop applications, experimental equipment (smart labs), learning content development tools etc To enable repository of deposit to exchange data with further repositories in predictable manner To hide complexity from end-user To be compatible with follow-on added value services layered on repository content Deposit API Working group meeting July 11/12, Warwick
