  • Since 2002 to now – have grown a repository infrastructure. 200 repositories Exploratory, Building Capacity, Enhancements, Rapid Innovation, Deposit, Recent focus on efficiency and sustainability of national shared services (Sherpa RoMEO, IRUS, RJB) - (RepNet) The repository is now being seen to play a central role in the management of a university ’ s digital assets, including research papers, data and learning materials and it is seen as a response to competitive demands to attract students and research funds, and to national and international policy requirements. Our strategic planning in this area needs to keep abreast of drivers, rapid advances in technologies and academic practices. More recently, a number of policy drivers in the uk such as research funders ’ policies on Open Access and research data, the UK Government ’ s White Paper on Data , and the funding councils ’   learning strategies and Research Excellence Framework have recognised the value of curating, reporting/measuring and sharing these assets.  Finch – Instrumental in forwarding the OA agenda. It ’s been a Game changer in the UK. Altho many interpreted Finch as saying gold and no need for repositories this wasn ’ t what was meant – underneath it was a recognition that repositories wld have a role for supplementary materials, changing models of scholarship & the transition to gold OA would require repositories to take a part. G8 summit - all G8 nations – signing up to Open Access to Peer reviewed published research and research data E.g. FASTR. – The Fair access to Science and Technology Act – introduced
  • Exploratory FAIR Programme 2002 – this really was about seeing what could be done with OAI-PMH – various projects looking at institutional resources, museum resources and scoping services such as Sherpa and Romeo   Building capacity – Start-Up repositories funding 33 project – this was facilitating institutions building their repository from scratch.   Enhancement – 33 - seeing what services/tools could be built on top (SNEEP) – social networking extensions for ePrints     rapid innovation 2009 – 41 projects – small, short term funding – Walking Through Time project – mobile app that allows allow architectural historians, conservationists and tourists to download historical maps when standing in a specific location, to annotate and tag these maps and to record and follow routes through historical space Students were interested in walking through real space whilst following a map from say 200 years ago - and being able to tag locations and overlay related data that offers historical and contextual information. PRONOM - A technical registry for file formats DROID - : An automatic file format identification & characterisation tool. JHOVE - : An identification, characterisation and validation tool NZ Metadata Extractor : programmatically extracts preservation metadata from a range of file formats
  • Slide courtersey od Azhar Hussain from Sherpa Services OpenDOAR. This graph maps IR growth from 2005 to 2012, notice the step, which is due to initial addition of records, after which we see steady growth … It is safe to say that this graph shows significant growth …… Timely to assess where we are going (given changes in our policy environment)
  • Even though our infrastructure is relatively mature, it is still evolving. We are now are at a point where it seems timely to assess emerging strategic requirements and the role and value of the repository to the institution in meeting them.  How do we ensure that our development plans will meet future demands? I will stress that today is not just about OA and scholarly communications but about the value and impact of all types of content.  Aims of the day is to get your input to trends, pioneering examples and possible futures to jointly support strategic planning.
  • Rachel Botsman – Speaking at the WIRED Money financial event. She is teaching business and Governments how to make use of a “what’s mine is yours” philosophy that is changing the shape of our economy. Technology is transforming our relationship to assets and ownership – Bruce Willis is currently trying to find a way of adding his extensive iTunes library to his will to his children – which is not currently possible – even though he has paid for them. In the future we could see the emergence of peer to peer mortgage companies (Banks may not necessarily be needed in the equation) Quote: “The sharing economy… We can definitely see a really strong role for the repository as part of the edges…

    3. 3. • Since 2002 the UK has grown a repository infrastructure • Now over 200 in operation • Repositories are playing an increasingly central role in the management of a university’s digital assets (including research papers, data, learning materials, etc.) • Recent focus: efficiency and sustainability of national shared services (Sherpa RoMEO/JULIET, IRUS, RJB) • Many component parts are in place • Where do we go from here? Background and Context Repository Fringe Jisc Workshop: Getting to the Repository of the Future
    4. 4. Repository Fringe Jisc Workshop: Getting to the Repository of the Future • Two views • High level • Institutions need to be responsive to competitive demands to attract research funds and students, and must also meet national and international policy requirements. • Strategic planning needs to keep abreast of policy drivers, rapid advances in technologies and academic practices (RCUK Policy on OA, Finch Report, Funding Councils’ Learning Strategies G8, FASTR, HEFCE REF 2020, etc.)
    5. 5. • On the ground • Repository systems have been with us for over 10 years • Are they still the right systems? • Are they enabling the management of the content we need to curate? • What other options exist? • What impact will repositories have on staffing, skill requirements, etc.? • What scale of operation can we manage? How? • Focus today is on the repositories themselves and how we address the issues these two views raise Repository Fringe Jisc Workshop: Getting to the Repository of the Future
    6. 6. • Further the sector’s understanding of the costs and value that flow from the digital assets of universities • Start to shape new futures for repositories • Work together – inform how we move forward in the UK (whilst acknowledging global picture) • Develop sector wide perspective • Requires your participation and ideas Aims and Objectives Repository Fringe Jisc Workshop: Getting to the Repository of the Future

    12. 12. Mirage2011 Sir Muir Gray, (Chief Knowledge Officer of the NHS) the “ appl i cat i on of what we know al r eady wi l l have a gr eat er i mpact on heal t h and di sease t han any dr ug or t echnol ogy l i kel y t o be i nt r oduced i n t he next decade” . Repositories are a typical example collecting large amount of information waiting to be exploited. Repository Fringe Jisc Workshop: Getting to the Repository of the Future

    16. 16. Jisc Repository Fringe Workshop: Getting to the Repository of the Future Four main takeaways (for me) •The role and need for a repository as a place to manage digital ‘stuff’ seems well accepted and here to stay but •There is a need for re-stating the clarity of purpose for our individual repositories, and taking ownership/leadership in how they develop •No gaps perceived – we know what we wish to achieve with repositories, but just need a way of doing it but •We need to clarify the barriers getting in the way and look at ways of overcoming them
    17. 17. Jisc Repository Fringe Workshop: Getting to the Repository of the Future …and some scenarios
    18. 18. Jisc Repository Fringe Workshop: Getting to the Repository of the Future Repositories will become capable of dealing with content types according to their needs e.g., •Research data •Research ephemera, e.g., blogs, notebooks •Learning materials •Code •…
    19. 19. Jisc Repository Fringe Workshop: Getting to the Repository of the Future Repositories will move beyond being a store of PDFs to enable re-use to a greater extent • Exposure to the web • Text/data mining
    20. 20. Jisc Repository Fringe Workshop: Getting to the Repository of the Future Repositories will benefit greatly from linked data, but we need persistent identifiers and vocabularies to be better established and standardised
    21. 21. Jisc Repository Fringe Workshop: Getting to the Repository of the Future Repositories will focus on holding material and preserving it, leaving all other functions to services built around the repository Repositories will become invisibly integrated within user-facing services
    22. 22. Jisc Repository Fringe Workshop: Getting to the Repository of the Future Repositories will be challenged by other systems offering similar capability e.g., •Institutional – CRIS, VLE, VRE?, etc. •Commercial – Academia.edu, Mendeley, etc. •Community – Gateway to Research Repositories will develop ways of demonstrating their impact
