This presentation looks at developing an integrated repository for Leeds Met comprising an Open Access research archive and a repository of reusable learning objects.

From the outset, the project team recognised that intraLibrary lacked functionality essential to an OA research archive, specifically; a publicly accessible search interface. Development work has therefore focussed on developing a suitable interface based on the SRU protocol and configuring a suitable metadata template within intraLibrary. We also consider differentiation and appropriate presentation of discrete types of content by the SRU interface and implementation of the OAI-PMH and XML sitemaps to aid discoverability of research material.
