FAO and UNESCO-IOC FAO and UNESCO-IOC released a customized version of DSpace – an Open Source, digital document repository system. The communities supported by FAO and UNESCO- IOC/IODE are synergistic and the standards on metadata and controlled vocabularies are similar for both. Goals: o Promote open access to scientific information o Make scientific information more accessible o Increase impact of research information
UNESCO-IOC: The Oceans NetworkOceanDocsUsed by nearly 50 organisations in oceanography and aquatic science http://www.oceandocs.orgRepositories with the same software: IBSS(Ukraine) http://repository.ibss.org.ua/dspace, CEEMAR http://www.ceemar.org,Related institutional repositories: NIO (India) http://drs.nio.org, ODINPimris http://pimrisregional.library.usp.ac.fj, 355 docs (On Greenstone)
Oceans ctnd..• The OceanDocs Central is available for smaller institutes and institutes with limited internet capacity• Odins create their network repository• Some institutes have their own repository• The oceanographic collection can be a part of a larger institutional repository
FAO : AGRIS Network• The AGRIS Network was set up by FAO in the 70s and created a worldwide cooperation for sharing access to agricultural science and technology information.• Geographic view of centers seehttp://agris.fao.org/agris-search/search/AgrisLargeMap.do The AGRIS open archives and bibliographical databases cover the many aspects of agriculture, including forestry, animal husbandry, aquatic sciences and fisheries, and human nutrition, extension literature from over 100 participating countries.
AGRIS Network... ctnd• AGRIS collection includes 2,690,844 bibliographic records, of which 82.24% are citations from scientific journals and 21% have links to full text documents
AOD current featuresThe current version is the customization of DSpace 1.7.1 (JSPUIversion), and to date has the following features: • extended OAI-PMH interface with MODS and AGRIS AP • use of controlled vocabularies (ASFA, AGROVOC) • use of authority control for journals (ASFA and AGRIS list) • availability of type based submission module • easy to install version for Windows • up-to-date lay-out: ‘personalizable’’ standard • advance and customizable import functionalities
Content types handled by AOD Journal contribution - i.e Article, Review, editorial Book section Book Proceedings paper Conference contribution - i.e Paper, Poster, Presentation Research report Working paper Thesis Other - Preprint
Distribution and support Communication release AgriOcean DSpace: o FAO repository community: the AGRIS network o IODE repository community: OceanDocs network o Others: IAALD, DuraSpace Assistance o AgriOcean DSpace community on AIMS, Agricultural Information Management Standards (register) http://aims.fao.org/community/group/agriocean-dspace Support material/Self training (http://aims.fao.org/tools) o Preinstallation requirements o Installation of AgriOcean DSpace o Administration of AgriOcean DSpace
1. Thesaurus plug-in• ASFA and AGROVOC thesaurus embedded in the submission process• Aim to integrate the thesaurus into DSpace in order to be able to pick and assign keywords for indexing• The plug-in is needed on two levels: for the data entry process and for the browsing by subject7. Authority Control for Journals ASFA and AGRIS Lists embedded in the submission process
Developments.... ctnd1. Easy Installer on Google Code AgriOcean DSpace 1.1 is available at Google Code in a source code and as an easy-to- install version for Windows4. Batch import module The current version of AgriOcean Dspace is 1.1 which contains a batch import module for AGRIS AP, Endnote and Web of Science RIS files• .
Installation instancesAOD has been installed in the following instances so far: • OceanDocs • Institute of Biology of the Southern Seas, Ukraine (IBSS) • Central and Eastern European Marine Repository (CEEMaR) • Ministry of Agriculture (Peru) • Biblioteca Conmemorativa Orton IICA/CATIE More institutions from Oceans , AGRIS and ASFA communities are interested in this tool.
• Anticipated Technical Developments • Compartibility with latest Dspace version • Develop the AOD Interface further • Extending the use of ontologies and authority control , i.e. Geonames3. AOD in the ODIN Communities4. AOD in the AGRIS Network5. AOD in the ASFA NetworkCapacity buidling activities on AOD6. OceanTeacher course for AOD
