  1. 1. Implementing an Open Source Repository David Gewirtz Digital Preservation Architect Yale University Library Yale University AM&T Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  2. 2. Implementing an Open Source Repository an Overview  A Best Practice for a Successful Respository Implementation  Organizational Preparedness  Technical Assessment - Requirements  The Library as a service provider  The End-User as a consumer of services  A Framework for implementation  Promotion of the benefits (added value) to end-users or your local community Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  3. 3. Implementing an Open Source Repository an Overview Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  4. 4. Implementing an Open Source Repository  Organizational Preparedness for an IR  Garner Organizational Support for Project  University Provost and Librarian in higher education  Board of a public Library or local politician  Bottom up approach sometimes works best!  Define the vision, mission and goals of the IR  Service provider goals and objectives must align with goals and objectives of consumers i.e. campus academic communities or the community library.  Integration with the emerging cyber-infrastructure that supports e-learning and research in high education  Make public library collections more accessible to support distance learning for a community college. Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  5. 5. Implementing an Open Source Repository  Organizational Preparedness for an IR  Develop Rules Guidelines and Policies for the IR  For submissions of scholarly communications or public contributions - Ingest  Types of Collections, formats and metadata  Copyright IP Rights Access management  Archive/Preservation capabilities  Secure Funding for IR  Demonstrate added value to the mission and core values of the institution or community.  Secure grants from private and public foundations such as IMLS Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  6. 6. Implementing an Open Source Repository  Technical Assessment – Service Provider View  Common Services possible with an IR  Integrate Analog and e-resource for enhanced discovery and access to collections  Interoperability and data exchange between library systems, collaboration and e-learning systems including public libraries.  Expose to broaden access and impact of collections data and metadata to external Information providers like Google and social networking communities like Facebook  Preserve digital data that now encapsulates the human record be the resources from publishers or community members.  Digital curation services Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  7. 7. Implementing an Open Source Repository  Technical Assessment – Consumer View  Tools for Cyber-scholarships  Serendipitous discovery of valuable resources across academic domains/resources.  Ability to exchange import/export library and network resources into distance learning and collaboration systems  Ability to re-use, re-purpose and express relationships between digital resources  A protected space for University outputs from faculty students, staff and administration  Access and Preservation of the cultural record of a community  Linking Services and metadata creation tools Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  8. 8. Implementing an Open Source Repository  Technical Assessment:  Framework for Implementation  Express users requirements through use cases  Distill end-user functional requirements from use case analysis and discussions with end users  Match end-user functional requirements to repository functionality Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  9. 9. Implementing an Open Source Repository Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  10. 10. Implementing an Open Source Repository  Technical Assessment:  Framework for Implementation  Align Interface requirements to functional requirements of the repository (add standards and protocols)  Graph the gaps  select an open source product that best fills in the gaps i.e. Dspace or Fedora Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  11. 11. Implementing an Open Source Repository Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  12. 12. Implementing an Open Source Repository  Dspace and Fedora as Different Options  Monolithic Application with connections to external services  An application based open a Service Oriented Architecture of loosely coupled network services/modules Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  13. 13. Implementing an Open Source Repository  Dspace Functional Description  Library Centric  Reflects structure of the organization that implements that application  Instantiated through communities that have collections and items that can be aggregated into bundles  Ingest workflow collection centric Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  14. 14. Implementing an Open Source Repository Dspace Architectural View Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  15. 15. Implementing an Open Source Repository Fedora Service Framework Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  16. 16. Implementing an Open Source Repository DSpace- Fedora Architectures Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  17. 17. Implementing an Open Source Repository  Promotion of the IR:  An IR can enhance the exposure of an Institution’s intellectual treasury or brand  An IR complements Cyber-Scholarship and promotes changes in the scholarly communication process  An IR contributes to the preservation of our cultural memory that is now recorded in diverse digital formats.  An IR contributes to the integration of analog, digital and network resources offered by your library. Mid-Winter ALA January 2008
  18. 18. Implementing an Open Source Repository  Important Repository References  Dspace: http://www.dspace.org/  Fedora: http://www.fedora.info/  Digital Commons http://www.bepress.com/ir/  E-Prints http://www.eprints.org/  Mailing List: http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/cgi- bin/webadmin?A0=jisc-repositories  Tip: Create a Google alert on the tag “Institutional Repository” or Repository Software and let a “bot” help you to research this subject.
