Libra: An Unmediated, Self-Deposit, Institutional Repository at the University of Virginia

  1. 1. LIBRAAn Unmediated, Self-Deposit, Institutional Repository at the University of Virginia<br />Open Repositories<br />Austin, TX<br />10 June 2011<br />Julie Meloni<br />Lead Technologist/Architect<br />Online Library Environment, UVa Library<br /> // @jcmeloni<br />
  2. 2. In February 2010, the University of Virginia Faculty Senate passed an Open Access resolution.<br />Open ACCESS AT UVA<br />
  3. 3. All faculty encouraged to “reserve a nonexclusive, irrevocable, non-commercial, global license to exercise any and all rights under copyright relating to each of her or his scholarly articles in any medium, and to authorize others to do the same.”<br />THE RESOLUTION<br />
  4. 4. NSF requirements for preservation and access of data used in or resulting from researchers’ grant-funded projects.<br />PARALLEL PROBLEM<br />
  5. 5. Discovery, access, and preservation of our students’ electronic theses and dissertations.<br />PARALLEL PROBLEM<br />
  6. 6. Given institutional commitment to these University-wide problems, resources were allocated from both the University Library and Information Technology & Communication.<br />Collaborative effort<br />
  7. 7. UVa was already committed to the Hydra Project, and to assist in the development of an end-to-end, flexible, extensible, workflow-driven Fedora application kit.<br />COLLABORATIVE EFFORT<br />
  8. 8. The solution to our problems clearly required such an application toolkit…<br />COLLABORATIVE EFFORT<br />
  9. 9. …good thing the Hydra Project had something in development:<br />HYDRANGEA<br />COLLABORATIVE EFFORT<br />
  10. 10. IS NOT a turnkey institutional repository solution.<br />IS a framework for depositing, managing, searching, browsing, and delivering digital content such as:<br />Articles and other published texts<br />Electronic Theses & Dissertations<br />Scientific Datasets<br />HYDRANGEA<br />
  11. 11. Our institutional solution should be:<br />UNMEDIATED<br />OPERATING PRINCIPLES<br />
  12. 12. Our institutional solution should provide:<br />SUSTAINABLE ACCESSIBILITY to MATERIALS<br />OPERATING PRINCIPLES<br />
  13. 13. Our institutional solution should enable:<br />COLLECTION OF DEPOSITOR-DESIGNATED METADATA<br />OPERATING PRINCIPLES<br />
  14. 14. Our institutional solution should enable:<br />ACCESS & DISCOVERY of UVa SCHOLARSHIP<br />OPERATING PRINCIPLES<br />
  15. 15. Our institutional solution should manage:<br />DEPOSITOR-DESIGNATED PERMISSIONS<br />OPERATING PRINCIPLES<br />
  16. 16. We worked with multiple internal stakeholders to gather requirements and user stories.<br />COLLABORATION IS KEY<br />
  17. 17. We work with our Hydra Partners to move the common code base forward while also developing an application from our own branch.<br />COLLABORATION IS KEY<br />
  18. 18. THE RESULT: LIBRA<br />
  19. 19. MULTIPLE ITEM TYPES<br />
  20. 20. ALL DISCOVERABLE<br />
  21. 21. AND DETAILED<br />
  22. 22. A REMINDER OF WHY<br />
  23. 23. As we develop and release additional functionality in Libra, we continue to work with Hydra Partners to improve the common code.<br />ONGOING COLLABORATION<br />
  24. 24. Everyone wins!<br />Eventual result<br />
