    Improving Discoverability, Avoiding Broken Links Improving Discoverability, Avoiding Broken Links Presentation Transcript

    • Improving Discoverability, Avoiding Broken Links: Technologies of Opportunity for Extension Publishing Mark Anderson-Wilk Extension and Experiment Station Communications Oregon State University 2009 ACE-NETC Conference Des Moines, Iowa, June 7, 2009
    • Link rot
      • Common, recognized problem
      • Results in reduced discoverability and need for future maintenance
      • Represents loss for resource seeker, resource publisher, and third-party referrer
    • Potential solutions
      • Digital object identifiers
      • Institutional repositories
      • Some combination
    • Digital object identifiers
      • Identifiers (unique, persistent names) vs. locators (Web addresses, URLs)
      • Example: 10.1000/182
      • Any type of digital media
      • Any granularity
      • DOI System, Handle System
    • DOI System
      • Registration agencies
        • CrossRef
        • R.R. Bowker
      • Publishers assign DOIs,
      • agencies deposit DOIs
      • DOI resolution
        • http://dx.doi.org/ 10.1000/182
    • Institutional repositories
      • Access and preservation
      • University communities contribute digital resources
      • University library shares the digital asset management responsibilities
      • DSpace example uses Handle System; other repositories use persistent URLs
    • Use
      • 14.3% of Extension publishing units use DOIs
      • At least 12 land-grant universities have some Extension materials in institutional repositories
      • Inconsistent use of repositories perpetuates link rot
    • Cost
      • DOI System too expensive for some Extension publishers
      • Institutional repository represents university investment to benefit Extension publishing
    • Revenue potential
      • DOIs can be used in conjunction with fee-for-access
      • Repositories typically open access
    • Platform
      • DOI System not a publishing platform itself, but a service to enhance existing publishing
      • Institutional repositories can serve as publishing platform
      • Repositories can be used in conjunction with Extension catalogs to distinguish current from archived material
