Virtual Collections for researchers

  1. 1. Virtual Collections for researchers The HAL archive and The Digital Repositories Infrastructure Vision for European Research [email_address] Dublin Core Conference 2007, Singapour Muriel Foulonneau, CNRS
  2. 2. The HAL platform
  3. 3. Multiple portals, multiple deposit interfaces Deposit portals HAL INRIA HAL-SHS OTHER UNIV INRA h a L EXPORTS IMPORTS XML, WS TEL generic domain-dependent typological institutional OAI-PMH REDIF RSS Etc. Common metadata Domain-specific metadata Institutional metadata
  4. 4. The HAL platform hosts various portals
  5. 5. Virtual collections in HAL <ul><li>The difference with portals: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The same metadata set </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the same deposit interface </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Criteria for creating collections? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Laboratories/Institutions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Congresses </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Project </li></ul></ul><ul><li>BUT for display only </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Browsing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Customizing interface </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. A collection in HAL Stamps document 08/16/2007 Person who requested the collection Administrator Creation date Automatic (query) or Manual collection process Display template (logo, css …) Super-collection Identifier Name
  7. 7. The DRIVER project <ul><li>Objectives: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The design of an infrastructure for digital repositories </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Proof of concept : National networks of institutional repositories </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Partners </li></ul><ul><ul><li>University of Athens ( Gr ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>University of Bielefeld ( Ger ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>CNR ( It ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>SURF ( NL ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>University of Nottingham ( UK ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique ( Fr ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>University of Bath ( UK ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>University de Warsaw ( Pol ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>University of Ghent ( Be ) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>University of Göttingen ( Ger ) </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. 5 National networks <ul><li>From 5 countries with different IR networks history </li></ul><ul><ul><li>UK : SHERPA </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Belgium : under construction </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Netherlands : DAREnet </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Germany : DINI </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>France : Archives-Ouvertes </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. An infrastructure to connect « digital repositories » <ul><li>Distributed </li></ul><ul><ul><li>OAI-PMH, including DC-based guidelines </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Service oriented architecture (SOA) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>To facilitate the creation of services </li></ul><ul><ul><li>For access, customization etc (eg. The DRIVER demonstrator) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To support research communities </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. 60 European repositories
  11. 11. The distributed architecture (SOA)
  12. 12. The demonstrator: a portal with collections
  13. 13. A DRIVER collection
  14. 14. Internal description of a virtual collection Size Number of documents Description Description Collector Administrator Collector Creator Title Title Identifier Name DCCAP DRIVER internal system
  15. 15. Also relations between collections + for a service Sub-collection Children Super-collection Father DCCAP DRIVER internal system Relation to other collections Definition DRIVER internal system Survival if father dies Deletion Propagation of properties to children BeFrozen Property Inheritance Visibility Icon Functional for Display
  16. 16. Problem: how do you share collection structure? <ul><li>In HAL, OAI sets </li></ul><ul><ul><li>But does not share set description : OAI sets are metadata collections (see DLF Forum Spring 2006 presentation M. Foulonneau, C. Arms, S. L. Shreeves) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Membership through the OAI infrastructure </li></ul></ul><ul><li>DRIVER guidelines include OAI sets by service provider </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Textual content in open access </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Need to build a Web service access </li></ul><ul><ul><li>But in DRIVER, membership is not an item property </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Registries such as OpenDOAR are based on repository description </li></ul>
