  • 27. Story – Tales from Repository managers

    Initially I just used the Validation tool to see if our repository is more or less on track and was
    reassured when the results looked good,
    which gave me confidence to register.

  • 28. Story – Tales from Service providers

    Adoption of a common standard for exporting metadata
    by repositories is very important for projects such as ours,
    so we can provide more effective access to their materials.
    The DRIVER Guidelines provide an excellent set that we
    hope many more repositories will take up.

  • 32. Some food for thought
    What strategies can be used to create a global “TriasPolitica” for repositories in order to come to “reliable content provision” by using interoperability guidelines?
    What strategies are there to maintain repository guidelines? Who is responsible?
    What strategies are known to create an acceptance mechanism for global agreement to repository guidelines?
    What strategies can be used to come to repository guidelines?
    Who is responsible for the (metadata) quality of the repository output?
