  27. 27. Story – Tales from Repository managers<br />“<br />Initially I just used the Validation tool to see if our repository is more or less on track and was<br /> reassured when the results looked good, <br />which gave me confidence to register.<br />- Louw Venter, Boloka Research Repository of the North-West University South Africa<br />”<br />DRIVER Summit, October 20 2009 - Ghent, Belgium<br />
  28. 28. Story – Tales from Service providers<br />“<br />Adoption of a common standard for exporting metadata <br />by repositories is very important for projects such as ours, <br />so we can provide more effective access to their materials. <br />The DRIVER Guidelines provide an excellent set that we <br />hope many more repositories will take up.<br /> <br />- Phil Cross<br />UK Institutional Repository Search<br />”<br />DRIVER Summit, October 20 2009 - Ghent, Belgium<br />

  32. 32. Some food for thought<br />What strategies can be used to create a global “TriasPolitica” for repositories in order to come to “reliable content provision” by using interoperability guidelines?<br />What strategies are there to maintain repository guidelines? Who is responsible?<br />What strategies are known to create an acceptance mechanism for global agreement to repository guidelines?<br />What strategies can be used to come to repository guidelines? <br />Who is responsible for the (metadata) quality of the repository output?<br />DRIVER Summit, October 20 2009 - Ghent, Belgium<br />
