    • 1. The Leeds Met Repository Streamline PERSoNA (Personal Engagement with Repositories through Social Networking Applications) Nick Sheppard John Gray
    • 2. The Leeds Met Repository
      • Serve a prioritised set of needs:
        • An open access research archive
        • A repository for learning objects
        • A showcase for students work
        • Digital images of heritage collections
        • A managed environment for the deposit of internal documents
    • 3. Streamline and PERSoNA
      • Streamline
        • Looking at the work flow associated with the use of learning object repositories
        • Develop a suite of tools and practices
        • Reduce the administrative impact on teaching and research staff.
      • PERSoNA
        • Personal Engagement with Repositories through Social Network Applications
        • Embedding social networking tools within the repository.
        • Encourage users to comment on their use of our repository and make recommendations amongst each other leading to the onward discovery of further resources.
    • 4. The Solution
      • intraLibrary
      • Originally designed as a specialised LO repository
      • Platform behind JORUM
      • Will require extensive customisation
    • 5. The Problem “ Build them and they will come.” BUT they haven’t!!
    • 6. However…
      • Scholars ARE using online tools
      • Can we:
        • Reproduce/formalise their online experience?
        • Integrate with the Leeds Met repository?
    • 7. A new approach? “ Old fashioned” repository! Multi-purpose environment Work flow Modular repository Habit/inertia Terminology Usability Widget technology Dynamic environment Social tagging SlideShare Web 2.0 Flickr
    • 8.  
    • 9. PERSoNA
      • Iterative cycle
      • Testing, feedback, modification
      • Engagement!
      • Preliminary questionnaire
      • Need intraLibrary online!
    • 10. Moving forward
      • The individual’s workflow
      • Subject to inertia
      • What is your information path?
      • Elicit stories, patterns
      • Inform a Web 2.0 repository environment
    • 11. What’s your story? Need copyright free image!
    • 12. (A tentative) conclusion
      • Scholars:
        • ARE using online tools
        • ARE sharing resources
        • ARE forming social networks
      • But they are not using open access repositories
      • IF we can develop a “multi-purpose environment”
        • Web 2.0 technologies
      • THEN they will come…
    • 13. To Be Continued…
