Sakai09 Repo Case Study

  1. 1. Multiple Repository Integration Case Study Jim Martino The Johns Hopkins University
  2. 2. JHU Repositories • JShare (Xythos) - “online service that allows students, faculty, and staff, and to share files within and outside the university community.” • JScholarship (DSpace 1.5) - “is designed to gather, distribute, and preserve digital materials related to the Johns Hopkins research and instructional mission. • Data Conservancy (Fedora) – pending NSF DataNet project for data curation. July 2009 10th Sakai Conference - Boston, MA, U.S.A. 2
  3. 3. JShare • Selective access, group management • Integration target as a general content source, specific storage destination • No workflow for storage
  4. 4. JScholarship • Institutional repository • Integration target as a general content source • Submission has its own workflow
  5. 5. DataNet The goal of the NSF DataNet program is to create “a set of exemplar national and global data research infrastructure organizations (dubbed DataNet Partners) that provide unique opportunities to communities of researchers to advance science and/or engineering research and learning.”
  6. 6. Data Conservancy • The overarching goal of DC is to support new forms of inquiry and learning to meet these challenges through the creation, implementation, and sustained management of an integrated and comprehensive data curation strategy.
  7. 7. Data Conservancy Within a year ... • we will have a large data set in our repository • we will demonstrate interoperability between the repository and a teaching and learning environment (Sakai)
  8. 8. Data Conservancy • Large data sets will change how users access data • Integration for use in teaching and learning may require flexible access control framework
  9. 9. Current examples • Sakaibrary metasearch integration is an interesting model of a mediating system bundling access to various diverse content services • SoftChalk integration feels a lot like the Sakaibrary approach
  10. 10. Future Directions Content Hosting Service and Content Hosting Handlers will likely not be available in K2 What technologies might be available toreplace this method of repository integration?
  11. 11. JCR Connect JCR Tools For Sharing Content Between Open Source Applications and Dissimilar Repositories Funded by the Mellon Foundation Northwestern University UCOP California Digital Library FEDORA Commons Chicago History Museum URL:
  12. 12. JCR Connect Project goal is to “develop software modules that will create interoperability between key open source educational and scholarly applications using JCR as a core content exchange mechanism.”
  13. 13. JCR Connect
  14. 14. JBoss DNA “JCR implementation that provides access to content stored in many different kinds of systems” URL:
  15. 15. JBoss DNA features • Use the JCR API to access your repositories • Manage numerous types of software assets, artifacts, and components • Sequencers that automatically help you unlock information buried within files • Connectors to access and integrate information from file systems, repositories, databases, and services • Federate content from multiple connectors into a single, unified JCR repository • REST server for use by other services and client applications
