Digital.Bodleian JISC Final Programme Meeting September 28th, 2012
Current state of play• User interface running and performance and user testing ongoing.http://digital-dev.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/inquire_1.12/Discover/Search/• Approximately 100,000 images and metadata converted to jpeg2000 and ‘DC’ and in use as live test data.• Most additional collections including our master image archive containing all of our legacy digitised content in progress. [40-50TB of images and metadata so slow/involved process]• Migration of the transformed metadata and images to our ‘DAMS’, with creation of UUIDs and PURLs about to begin.
Outstanding issues• Bulk ingest mechanism of transformed data and images into DAMS not finalised.• OAI-PMH target not operational.• User interface currently pulling data from a working store rather than the final master DAMS store.
Open Licensing• Digital.Bodleian using Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 license as the default.• http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/• The current user interface doesn’t offer fine-grained user access rights management.• No content with stricter license conditions is being offered in the first wave.• Project assistant is checking rights during the ingest process.
Persistent identifiers• Images and metadata are added to our DAMS (Digital Asset Management System) as data packages.• Each data package is an aggregation of a manifest, jpeg2000 image, the original metadata, and a standardised (DC-based) metadata file.• Each data package is assigned a UUID at ingest.• Oxford has a PURL (Persistent Uniform Resource Locator) resolver: http://purl.ox.ac.uk/docs/index.html• The UUID for each data package is used to create a PURL.
Persistent Identifiers• Bodleian google books example:http://purl.ox.ac.uk/uuid/79b9e193afbd4a7ba03700596afe9832• Partial redirection allows persistent access to elements within a data package, or to particular file types.http://purl.ox.ac.uk/uuid/XXXXXX/image.jp2http://purl.ox.ac.uk/uuid/XXXXXX/dc.xml
Reuse of data• The iNQUIRE interface used by Digital.Bodleian sits on top of: o a Solr index, which indexes the DC-based metadata for each data package o A Djatoka server, which serves up jpeg tiles from the jpeg2000 master files within each data package o The UI incorporates a DeepZoom wrapper around the Djatoka tiles.• All of these can be reused by non-iNQUIRE services.• All of the elements in each data package can be accessed by PURLs, and can be harvested via OAI- PMH, accessed directly, or reused in other services.• The DAMS provides a REST interface to the data.• The DeepZoom UI can be embedded in other sites, including sites., e.g.:http://digital-dev.bodleian.ox.ac.uk/inquire_1.12/Discover/DeepZoom?id=info:plasci012-aci-0001-0&h=600&w=800
