  1. 1. The inside-out research library: managing research output beneficially at Elag 2013, Ghent Peter van Boheemen
  2. 2. Overview  Unanswered questions  Needs  What to do to fulfill these Needs
  3. 3. Questions and no answers I want to search the catalogue to find everything our university has ever published We don’t have that. Most staff write articles in journals and we only catalogue the journal I want to search the catalogue to find all monographs our university has ever published We do not collect all of that systematically, except for dissertations ! I want to search the catalogue to find all dissertations our university has ever published We can not distinct them from dissertations from other universities
  4. 4. Questions and no answers I want to search the repository to find everything our university has ever published ? The repository only covers output published after 1993 I want to search the repository to find everything our university has ever published since 1993 ? The library can not guarantee this is complete. Researchers are asked to register publications in the repository. What are the most highly cited journal articles in the repository ? We do not record that kind of meta data in the repository.
  5. 5. Needs • We need better coverage of local output • Libraries should care about meta data of local output • We need more and better local meta data • We need to get rid of these silo’s of meta data
  6. 6. We need better coverage of local output
  7. 7. We need better coverage of local output All output All output in Open Access
  8. 8. Libraries should care about meta data of local output  Wageningen Yield (WaY) is the institutional bibliography of Wageningen UR ● WaY should contain metadata descriptions of all Wageningen UR publication output, >190.000 items ● WaY is our OA repository, >48.000 items ● WaY is our tool for citation analyses, >22.000 publications ● WaY is used to produce bibliometric reports

  17. 17. We need more and better local meta data  enrich
  18. 18. We need to get rid of meta data silo’s  We carefully register meta data of publications in our catalogue, following internationally accepted strict rules  We are doing this in thousands of places in the same way  We are not registering specific local meta data  We may do this in our catalog, but we leave that up to unqualified research staff in a separate repository.  So we often end up with 2 incomplete registrations
  19. 19. We need to get rid of meta data silo’s
  20. 20. We need to get rid of meta data silo’s  We are looking into merging meta data description in our catalogue and our repository in a workflow that will make use of registrations elsewhere. If not we make sure we need to register meta data only once in one single system  We are trying to create one Wageningen Bibliography
