This presentation from OR2012 provides an overview of activities in JISC-funded Innovation Zone, which supports development of repository infrastructure by facilitating: technical knowledge-exchange (expert workshops); sharing of key information on repository components and use cases (knowledge base); trials of APIs with developer communities, technical feedback on data flows: what works, what doesn’t, what’s to be done and when (DevCSI); incubation of prospective services.

Transcript

  • 1. Innovation Zone: Support for Developments in Repository InfrastructureThom BuntingInnovation Zone Project ManagerISC at UKOLNOpen Repositories 2012 (OR2012)University of Edinburgh JISC Innovation Support Centre at UKOLN is supported by: JISC Innovation Support Centre at UKOLN http://isc.ukoln.ac.uk
  • 2. Innovation Zone: what it isJISC-funded Innovation Zone supports development of repository infrastructure by facilitating: technical knowledge-exchange (expert workshops) sharing of key information on repository components and use cases (knowledge base) trials of APIs with developer communities, technical feedback on data flows: what works, what doesn’t, what’s to be done and when (DevCSI) incubation of prospective services (not yet established) JISC Innovation Support Centre at UKOLN http://isc.ukoln.ac.uk
  • 3. Knowledge exchange:aggregation & visualisationInnovation Zone experts workshop on ‘functional category’ for APIs, aggregation & visualisation tools related to repository metadata (September 2012) RepNet+ Oversight Group recommends work with three search components into Innovation Zone (Intute Repository Search (IRS), CORE, RepUK) Knowledge exchange around: harvesting from institutional repositories, managing large aggregations, offering functions through APIs, metadata processing / normalisation, options for faceted search JISC Innovation Support Centre at UKOLN http://isc.ukoln.ac.uk
  • 4. Knowledge exchange:curation & preservationInnovation Zone is arranging experts workshop on curation & preservation strategies for research repositories (October 2012) JISC recommends that experts get together identify curation & preservation services / components required to support RepNet+ infrastructure Knowledge exchange around: what exists already, dependencies and gaps, groups to be involved (DCC, Digital Preservation Coalition, etc) JISC Innovation Support Centre at UKOLN http://isc.ukoln.ac.uk
  • 5. Information sharing:components & use casesInnovation Zone maintains a knowledge base of key repository infrastructure components and use cases developers provided with common reference points ) (iplus.ukoln.ac.uk/component-catalogue use cases collected from workgroups in semi-structured way linkages of use cases to components JISC Innovation Support Centre at UKOLN http://isc.ukoln.ac.uk
  • 6. Technical feedback onrepository infrastructureInnovation Zone arranges trials of APIs with developer communities, technical feedback on data flows: what works, what doesn’t, what’s to be done and when DevCSI ‘HackDays’ and other events / outreach activities with developer communities support highly cost-efficient and productive trialing of APIs Proven model, recognised as invaluable by commercial content providers (Elsevier, Microsoft Research, Talis etc) JISC Innovation Support Centre at UKOLN http://isc.ukoln.ac.uk
  • 7. Example: Gateway toResearch (GtR) HackDayInnovation Zone supports early and on-going feedback from developer communities regarding key components of repository infrastructure Gateway to Research working with us and DevCSI to run activities where developers can test and hack prototypes against GtR APIs GtR likely to become a consumer of data from institutional repositories or provider of data (funder- related, project codes, subject classifications?) JISC Innovation Support Centre at UKOLN http://isc.ukoln.ac.uk
  • 8. How can you engage?Innovation Zone would like to hear from you if you have a service of relevance to repositories with an API that you would like to trial with developers Let us know so we can help you reach other services and developers Get in touch also if you have interests in repository infrastructure innovations such as micro-services and the incubation of prospective components (future areas of work in the Innovation Zone) JISC Innovation Support Centre at UKOLN http://isc.ukoln.ac.uk
