    1. 1. Use Data and IR Content Recruitment: Caltech Experience Kimberly Douglas Ed Sponsler and Hema Ramachandran, Jim O’Donnell, Eric Van de Velde, Sandy Garstang and many others on the team Caltech Library System [email_address]
    2. 2. Caltech <ul><li>285 Tenure-track faculty </li></ul><ul><li>250 Principal investigators </li></ul><ul><li>900 Undergraduates </li></ul><ul><li>1100 Graduate students </li></ul>
    3. 3. The Caltech IR Launch in 2000 <ul><li>Without grant funding </li></ul><ul><li>Using solely in-house professional staff </li></ul><ul><li>Simultaneous development and production </li></ul><ul><li>Entrepreneurial </li></ul><ul><li>Team work </li></ul><ul><li>Integrated with existing work </li></ul>
    4. 4. Faculty Self-Publishing Inventory 1999 <ul><li>Engineering and Applied Science 42 items </li></ul><ul><li>Chemistry and Chem. Eng. 3 </li></ul><ul><li>Physics, Math, Astrophys. 3 </li></ul><ul><li>Biology 3 </li></ul><ul><li>Geology and Plan. Sci. 2 </li></ul><ul><li>Humanities and Soc. Sci. 1 </li></ul>
    5. 5. Recruitment Strategies <ul><li>Identify a Faculty champion </li></ul><ul><li>Appeal to his/her group/dept. needs, objectives or vision </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce effort or worry of research or departmental support staff </li></ul>
    6. 6. Caltech – OAI Data Provider 2000 - Computer Science Technical Reports (CSTR) 414 Reports, 1980’s to present; new reports online since 1995; took over from Dept. running NCSTRL 2001 - Cavitation 2001 Proceedings (CAV2001) 110 papers; born online in June 2001 with afaculty “early adopter.” 2001 - Earthquake Engineering Research Lab. Reports (EERL) 306 Reports, 1950’s to present; converted to online in Summer 2001; saved Dept. storage and reprinting costs.
    7. 7. Caltech – OAI Data Provider 2002 - Parallel and Distributed Systems Group E-Tech. Reports (Paradise) 63 papers, 1992 to date; harvested faculty site as of Summer 2002; added pdf to .ps; needed no change in faculty behavior. 2002 - Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) 1561 theses; 1960’s to date; Graduate Dean made ETD required in 2002; older theses scanned and added as time permits; 200 current theses submitted students each year. 2002 - Books by Caltech Authors (BOOK) 4 books; 2002 – Caltech Oral Histories (OH) Caltech archives 39 documents;
    8. 20. Geographic reach beyond U.S. <ul><li>Computer Sci. Repts. – 104 countries = 57% of total use </li></ul><ul><li>CAV2001 Conf. – 120 countries = 68% of total use </li></ul><ul><li>Earthquake Eng. Repts. – 103 countries = 65% of total use </li></ul><ul><li>Books – 95 countries = 63% of total use </li></ul><ul><li>Oral Histories – 72 countries = 34% of total use </li></ul><ul><li>ALL – 140 countries = 63% of total use </li></ul>
    9. 21. Conclusions <ul><li>Over time downloads appear to be less random; use patterns indicate more directed retrieval of specific documents </li></ul><ul><li>Even small archives will be discovered and used throughout the world, thanks to OAI </li></ul><ul><li>Type or genre of material is not as significant as subject </li></ul><ul><li>There is significant penetration into the international community </li></ul>
    10. 22. Why Theses? <ul><li>Clear administrative purpose </li></ul><ul><li>Library is unquestioned archive </li></ul><ul><li>Process is regular and continuing </li></ul><ul><li>Volume is predictable </li></ul><ul><li>Authors are new entrants to scholarly enterprise </li></ul>
