    •  
    • Open Archives Initiative: A model for development data? Harry Heemskerk, Royal Tropical Institute (KIT)
      • WARNING!
      • This presentation is not about data.
      Amsterdam, The Netherlands www.kit.nl
    • In this presentation . . .
      • What are the issues
      • Open Archives Initiative (OAI)
      • Repositories in Africa
      • Search4Dev: repository for NL development sector
      • OAI: a model for development data?
      Amsterdam, The Netherlands www.kit.nl
    • The issues
      • Digital resources need to appear at many sites, but:
        • Storage at multiple locations is inefficient and error-prone
        • Multiple instances of metadata are inefficient and often inconsistent
      • Search engines do not use metadata optimally
      • Digital resources get lost
      • Identifiers to digital resources are not persistent
      Amsterdam, The Netherlands www.kit.nl Link rot !
    • Open Archives Initiative (OAI)
      • Initiated by Van de Sompel and others in 2000
      • Builds on Open Access initiatives in the 1990’s
      • Has since conquered Open Access publishing in the academic world
      Amsterdam, The Netherlands www.kit.nl
    • The principles of OAI
      • Standardize metadata
      • Add metadata at the source
      • Store once, use many
      • Register evolving sets of resources,
      • not individual resources
      • Create interoperability
      Amsterdam, The Netherlands www.kit.nl
    • a) Standardize metadata
      • Metadata set:
      • the descriptors to identify and describe the resource
      • Dublin Core Metadata Element Set (DCMES)
      • ≈ minimum standard
      • 15 elements without refinements
      • each element optional and repeatable
      • also known also know as “Simple Dublin Core”
      Amsterdam, The Netherlands www.kit.nl
    • a) Standardize metadata
      • Metadata exchange standard:
      • the digital format in which the metadata set is exchanged
      • Is defined as an XML schema
      • Dublin Core based (simple)
        • OMF
        • PBCore
      • MODS (intermediate)
      • MARCXML (complex)
      • METS (object hierarchies)
      • MPEG-21 DIDL (complex digital objects)
      • . . .
      Amsterdam, The Netherlands www.kit.nl
    • b) Add metadata at the source
      • Metadata should be added close
      • to the creation of the resource.
      • (Possibly by the author him/herself => self-archiving)
      • Why?
        • Creator knows best
        • Consistent
        • Efficient

      • Subject repository
      • . . .
      Amsterdam, The Netherlands www.kit.nl
    • Various types of repositories
      • May be very large or very small
      • May be rapidly expanding or rather stable
      • May store different kinds of content
      • May use varying database systems
      • May run on all kinds of platforms
      • . . .
      Amsterdam, The Netherlands www.kit.nl
    • Various types of harvesters

    • About registries of repositories
      • Register sets of resources, not individual resources.
      • Examples of registries of repositories:
      • Registry of Open Access Repositories - ROAR
      • Directory of Open Access Repositories - OpenDOAR
      • The Open Archives Initiative
      • The OAI registry at University of Illinois
      • Openarchives.eu
      Amsterdam, The Netherlands www.kit.nl
    • d) Create operability
      • Communication protocol:
      • question-and-answer language between repository and harvester
      • OAI-PMH
      • Open Archives Initiative - Protocol for Metadata Harvesting
      Amsterdam, The Netherlands www.kit.nl
    • d) Create operability
      • Examples of OAI-PMH conversation
      • Q: identify – who are you?
      • A: I am the service www.university.edu and my oldest record is from 2001
      • Q: listmetadata – what are the metadataformats that you can supply?
      • A: I can supply my metadata in DC and DIDL
      • Q: listsets – which sets of information do you have ?
      • A: I have a set of Humanities and a set of Biology records
      Amsterdam, The Netherlands www.kit.nl
    • d) Create operability
      • Examples of OAI-PMH conversation
      • Q: listidentifiers – Give me the headers of the records that were published after 1-1-2010
      • A: Here are the headers of the records requested
      • Q: listrecords – Give me details of the records of the records that were published after 1-1-2010
      • A: Here is a list of records
      • Q: getrecords – Give me a specific record
      • A: Here are all the fields of this specific record

    • Search4Dev: lessons learned
      • Everybody supports the idea
      • . . . but not everybody puts in the effort
      • Initial enthusiasm may fade
      • Acquisition requires persuasion and persistence
      • Crucial to have dedicated contact persons
      • Legal agreement must precede publication
      Amsterdam, The Netherlands www.kit.nl
    • Search4Dev: lessons learned
      • Without a strong partner in the service layer
      • Search4Dev will not reach its full potential.
