Rights and Rewards in Blended Institutional Repositories IPR in E-Learning Steve Loddington
Background Based at Loughborough University Three project partners: - Dept Information Science - University Library - Engineering Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (EngCETL) Rights MEtadata for Open archiving (RoMEO) project
Progress to date 1 Undertook a motivational study (in the form of a survey), with regards to a repository of teaching materials, which investigated; - barriers (rights issues, time) - incentives (financial, non-financial rewards, support) - past, present and future repository use
Progress to date 2 Carried out a digital lifecycle exercise, which investigated; - Different file types and formats - Most appropriate metadata for each type At present, we are executing a workflow mapping exercise to; - Identify existing practice at Loughborough University - Identify existing/critical stakeholders - Map research and teaching material workflows - Identify any commercial processes to adopt
IPR Survey findings Respondents. Questions for rights section taken from RoMEO to compare research output to teaching material. In your institution who owns the copyright of your teaching materials? % were unsure % believed the Institution owns the copyright % believed the Academic owns the copyright - 6.0% did not answer
IPR Survey findings 2 What restrictions/conditions would you like to place on the use of your material?
IPR Survey findings: conclusion Lack of IPR awareness was a major barrier to contributing in the past Gaining adequate support in dealing with IPR issues would be a motivator to contribute to a repository in the future The majority of participants would allow a number of activities to be carried out on their material but under some restrictions and conditions Feedback, in the form of usage statistics would motivate contribution to a repository of teaching materials. The majority would like their name attributed to material placed in repositories and when being re-used
Future Aims Develop a Rights Solution - Compare the survey outcomes to the RoMEO findings. - Look into different licences such as Creative Commons, JORUM. - Investigate different repository software's (DSpace and ePrints) and services, in relation to these licences. - Incorporate the rights solution into the repository software.
