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 1 430 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? - 54.9% were unsure - 26.0% believed the Institution owns the copyright - 12.8% 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.
